More of Central Florida seen through the Instagram lens. Enjoy (and if you know where any of these places are, chime in)!
Central Florida has many great “photo opps.” Sometimes ya gotta look for them, often they find you (you just have to be ready). And when we are ready we try to capture them on Instagram. While some of these great photos make their way into our posts, they mostly don’t warrant a full blog post, so we Instashare them.
For these, we thought it’d be fun to start a little series called “Central Florida Life on Instagram,” where from time-to-time we’ll feature various photos caught over a week or two. Here’s the first…we hope you enjoy!
Know where any of this were snapped? We’d love to hear it – let’s make this interactive. And if you’re on Instagram yourself and aren’t yet following us, and would like to, feel free at Instagram.com/PulseofCFL (handle @PulseofCFL on the App).
We’ve been supporters of Central Florida arts/entertainment/culture magazine BRINK pretty much since the beginning (and they’ve been big supporters of ours as well). Great content, and the folks at the helm are pretty rad. So we’re happy to share with you all that the BRINK 2013 calendar is currently available for sale here. Why not support this fantastic local project for simply $4.99? (There’s also a free digital version, if you prefer, but why not shell-out the cash?!)
Additional information can be found and purchases made here.
As you for sure know by now, I’ve been a Chevy “Girl on the Go” for the past month, and have enjoyed every single minute of it. What started out as a fun opportunity, turned into excellent exposure for our blog, new friends, and fun times.
So thanks, Chevy. Out with the New:
In with the Old:
- Despite the name, the Tampa Bay Rays’ mascot is neither a Sting Ray nor a Manta Ray. It is, however, a “Ray of Sunlight.” Does this look like a Ray of Sunlight to you?!?!
- Even though ESPN ran a poorly timed story about Concession Food, I feel just fine after splurging on my once-a-year hot dog. Thank you very much.
- The Camaro‘s awesome “Rear Parking Assist” feature, or what I like to call the “Beep, Beep, BEEEEEEEEEP” feature, does not make me a better parallel parker.
- Evan Longoria and Eva Longoria are not the same people.
- Tropicana Field is indoors and feels a little like going to a baseball game under the Big Top.
Note: Tickets were graciously provided to us for the Girlfriend Getaway Florida program.
Okay … this made me giggle out loud.
For the past two weeks, I’ve been participating in the Chevy Girl on the Go program. I’ve said it in Tweets, in person, on Facebook, here on the blog and to anyone and everyone who’ll listen: it’s been a great experience. Not only have I had the opportunity to drive one of the most fun cars I’ve driven in years, but our “little blog that could” has gotten some terrific exposure.
We started this blog more than 2 years ago so we could share our experiences in Central Florida and tell whoever would listen that there’s more to this town than Mickey (although we love them, too!) and we hope you’ll continue to come along for the ride. Thanks for reminding me (us) that Anything is Possible.
We’ve been looking for a reason to write about Images Auto Spa for a while now. If you’re anything like me, the feeling of driving around in your car after it’s been washed, vacuumed and sprayed with ‘new car smell’ makes it feel new even if it isn’t.
Yesterday I hit up Images, and they did not disappoint. So, what makes this car wash any better than other? Well, they have a nifty little automated wash selector so no pushy salespeople making you feel guilty for not getting all the extras; they have a nice air-conditioned waiting area or a lovely covered bay outside; the people are friendly; and, most importantly, your car comes out looking like this:
What: Images Auto Spa
Where: 4007 East Colonial Drive, Orlando, FL 32803
Hours: 9-8, Monday through Saturday; 9-6 on Sunday (Hours may vary based on weather conditions)
So, I’m beyond excited to share that I’ve been chosen as one of Chevy’s “Girls on the Go” for their Girlfriend Getaway Florida program!
What does that mean, you ask?
I’ve had the car a little more than 24 hours and I’m already hooked! I hope you’ll come along for the ride … and if you’re lucky, maybe I’ll even take you for a spin!
*The Girls on the Go campaign is sponsored by Southern Chevy Dealers who gave chosen bloggers the opportunity for a month-long test drive of a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro. We’ll be blogging about our experiences using the vehicle and Girlfriend Getaway Florida has provided us gift cards to go on fun missions.
