Sprinkles in Tampa!!

If you haven't heard of Sprinkles, you will very quickly! The popular bakery to launch the very first cupcake ATM in Beverly Hills, has just opened a location in Tampa! With less than 20 locations sprinkled accross the county, it's newest store, in Hyde Park Village, did not dissapoint! Let's just say, Tampa loves Sprinkles already!! Welcome to the neighborhood!!!

I was recently invited to attend a sneak peak tasting for Sprinkles before it officially opens later this week! So, I grabbed the family and we graciously accepted our roles as "official taste testers," as my 5 year old said!

Although, there wasn't a official ATM there yet, the presentation of adorable cupcakes, cookies and the great selection of ice cream was superb! We were each given a choice of ANYTHING on their menu to enjoy in store, and then take home a special treat for later!!! The toughest part, choosing which to try first!!

The boys, wisely chose a Sprinkle Sandwich, which was devoured in minutes! A single scoop of ice cream, sandwiched by two cupcake tops! I didn't get a picture, but I assure you, it was delicious!!!! The rest of us, went with a good 'ole, cupcake! Each menu item is prepared in house and the cupcakes were like little pieces of art & scrumptious!!

We were so excited to attend this sneak preview and can't wait for the rest of  you to visit and chek it out!! Wanna earn a free cupcake? Be sure to enroll in their Sprinkles Perks program here!

Sprinkles Tampa, is sure to be the newest hangout! With their colorful store, photo opps with hashtags and deliciouls treats, like me, you won't want to leave!! We'll be back soon, maybe on opening day! Will I see you there? Hip, hip, hooray for Sprinkles, we are so glad you're here!!!

Trendspotting for Mommy Spot Tampa!

I am a lover of fashion, I love reading up on the trends that come and go. I do my best to keep up with the changing trends, but maintain a classic and most importantly, original style, in the always changing mix! As with my boys, it's no different! I must keep them looking handsome as ever!

The changing of the season, and storing of Winter clothes, inspired my latest post for Mommy Spot Tampa.

I got the chance to play dress up with the latest Spring clothes for children, at my favorite baby & kid boutique, Seedlings.

Check out the entire post here!

Happy Spring to all of you and as always,

When planting these seeds, use care and plant preferably when you're not hungry...... ;) wink, wink!

Mommy's Trifecta & The Fall Fashion Show

Mom-my Tri-fec-ta: A Mom's night out, enjoying delicious food & drink, AND indulging in some retail therapy...all in ONE place!!

Every Mother needs a little R & R! We don't always allow time for ourselves to do so.... Or if we do, we feel guilty for taking that time away from other priorities... Well, I'm learning, a rested Mommy, is a happy Mommy! I was lucky enough to get the "Mommy Trifecta" as I like to call it and wanted to share it with you!

Here's a look at the Fall Fashion Show I participated in last week, hosted by Mommy Spot Tampa  & a great boutique in Hyde Park Village ,  Don Me Now ! They invited Moms of all sizes and even featured a couple cute preggos to model the newest Fall looks; Encouraging us all to get out of the yoga pants and into something that made us feel beautiful!!

Make up application before the show! Made us feel like stars! 

Backstage with all the Mommy models before starting the show! 

I was styled in a chic black jumpsuit and this beautiful necklace! The hat, was separate, but instantly loved it! 

All mommy models with the founder of Mommy Spot Tampa, Christina 
Big thanks to this sweet pal who came to cheer me on!! 
It was a fabulous night! Don Me Now styled all the Moms to perfection! If you haven't been to this boutique in Hyde Park Village , be sure to stop by! They have really great stuff and you'll love Danielle & her staff of stylists!

I didn't get any photos of the delicious food and drinks they had for the event, but trust me, these girls knew how to throw a party! 

Check back with me or visit Mommy Spot Tampa directly for more of their fabulous events coming up! You might see an article or two from me, coming up on their site soon! :) XO!
