Sleeping Moon Cafe

Above are a few shots from my last visit to the Sleeping Moon Cafe, located on the outskirts of Winter Park, FL. I enjoyed the caprese panini with chicken along with the strawberry jasmine tea. Whenever I am heading towards this area I try to find an excuse to stop by because the ambiance soothes a busy day. It's a great place to meet a friend for coffee or tea, but also nice to visit alone as there is varied seating. I love the service here because everyone is very friendly and they give refills on the iced teas of the day. 
The lunch/dinner menu contains paninis, salads, and appetizers such as grape leaves. They serve breakfast, however I have not tried it. There are also vegetarian and vegan options in other words, a little something for everyone. While this cafe is on the pricier side averaging $12 a meal, it is a delightful place to visit so I give it 4 out of 5 stars.

P.S.- The server mentioned that alongside the typical coffee and espresso drinks, they carry Turkish coffee. I had only heard of it once before but was unable to try it that day. I will have to update this post once I try their Turkish coffee and let you all know how it tastes with the coffee grounds in the cup.

Elegant Curly Hairstyle

Hair Tutorial! I know I haven't made a curly hair tutorial in a while but I wanted to post this one because it is very easy yet feminine. This is great for those of you with really long necklaces that you want to wear as hair jewelry. I like this style because you still get to wear the necklace around your neck and in your hair.

I'm wearing the Golden Leaf Multi-Chain necklace from Bijoux ou Bijou. They have jewelry and accessories that are quality at affordable prices. Since this necklace is gold plated, it will not fade or change color for a very long time. Visit Bijoux ou Bijou here and use the code JEWELRY15OFF to receive 15% off your purchase. Purchases of $50 or more receive free shipping and a free gift!

Fresh Squeezed

One of the perks of living in Florida is always being able to get oranges at a great deal! Since I have been living away from home in Orlando, I finally bought my own hand juicer. This one is perfect for oranges but could also work for grapefruit and lemons. I found it at Marshall's for $2.99 and the oranges were $5.99 for the bag. Look for weight, not size, when picking juicing fruit or you will be heavily disappointed!

Hilton Waldorf Astoria Orlando

I attended a convention this weekend at the Hilton Waldorf Astoria and had an excellent time! I definitely want to return for a relaxing getaway but it did make the business venture that much better. What is your favorite resort? Are you more likely to go to business conventions, meetings, and events if they are held at luxurious venues?

Date Night | Fitted Dress

Sharing my date night outfit, featuring my new fitted dress from H&M! I love this dress because it is sexy enough to wear as a club or party dress but classy enough to be worn as a cocktail dress. If you decide to purchase this H&M dress, I highly  recommend trying it on because it fits very tight (especially around the hips). I usually wear a size 4 but am wearing a size 6 in this dress.

I really like the silhouette for pear shaped girls because it accentuates the waist with the curved stitching. The hem going up in a "V" is also very flattering for bigger hips and butt, like mine. I wanted to say all of this in the video but the camera kept cutting off; however, I'm working to get it back to normal. I hope you enjoyed and have a wonderful day!
