So I had a flipping great time in Florida! We were down there for 8 days and as much as I love Disney, I was ready to get home to the house and the doggie.

We hit the following parks - Epcot, Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Universal Studios, and Animal Kingdom. Animal Kingdom was the only semi-let down. It's basically a glorified zoo. The only REALLY cool thing is the Safari, so you do need to do that once. After the other four parks, though, I expected more from the AK!

I was super excited to see the Max Factor vintage store front and makeup displays at Universal. There was also really cool makeup effects in a theater for makeup, but pictures weren't so easy to get in there, so I only have a few of the Max Factor to show you:

The kids had a blast and my son insisted we move there immediately. "We need to get the dog, sell the house, and move here". LOL

Before I left I posted that I was coming and Brittany from Clumps of Mascara mentioned we should meet up! I'm all for meeting more bloggers (there aren't so many of us that I know of in Pittsburgh) so I got with the girls one evening at Bahama Breeze and had the BEST time talking beauty, fashion and blogs with some of the greatest minds in Florida (and the best freaking chocolate pineapple upside down cake EVER)!

In attendance (other than me) were Brittany from Clumps of Mascara, Kim from Libby's Pink Vanity, Catherine from Beauty by Cat, Toni from Toniiz Beauty Blog, Zulay from World of Henna, Pamela from Pamela's Closet, Lo'Real from Make Me Up In HD, and Elizabeth from Lacquered Up Glittah.

How gorgeous are these ladies?! It's a whole table of bloggie talent! And Wi-Fi Vampires! Between all of us running laptops, iPads... etc, the normal diner was not getting online. Sorry, bud!

If you'll notice, Brittany is only noticeable between two heads (but you wouldn't know it unless I told you) and I'm really leaned in... the woman taking the photo was snapping away and not mentioning that we weren't all in. One of the girls will have a photo of both Brittany and I messing around with our arms in the air and jumping into the photo lol

Don't worry, Brittany! I got ya featured ;)

She is using some amazing lip gloss from Philosophy that is a FLASHLIGHT and has a future place in my makeup bag.

Excuse the shine... it's hot as Hades in Florida!

Thank you for the AWESOME time and welcome, Central Florida Bloggers! I love every one of you and if $$$$ weren't an issue I'd fly down every single month!
