Explore The Alley at Belleair Bluffs!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post on behalf of The Alley at Belleair Bluffs; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.  Please see my disclosure policy)

I recently had the amazing opportunity to explore The Alley at Belleair Bluffs here in the Tampa Bay area with my friend Marsha from Plate Girl. Located at 596 Indian Rocks Road in Belleair Bluffs, FL, this hidden gem is home to many cute, yet quaint stores that are filled with vintage and eclectic pieces as well as clothing and even delicious food options.

I actually visited this past Saturday, November 30, which was Shop Small Saturday. What fun it was for me as we toured some of the stores, and to hear from each owner as to how they began their business. It is evident to me that each owner really understands their business and takes pride in what they are doing! Everyone was so friendly and made me feel welcome!

We began our tour of The Alley at The Astoria Pastry Shop. This European Bakery has everything from homemade pastries to custom cakes, and they serve delicious ILLY coffee. We had the most delicious cappucinos and sweet treat that helped us get our day off to a great start! The Astoria Pastry Shop is so charming, and they offer both indoor and outdoor seating. It is the perfect stop for coffee with a friend, or you can pick up treats for the go!

Our next stop along the way was Petal and Vine Garden & Marketplace. This store offers exquisite floral arrangements, delectables and unique gifts. There are gift ideas for everyone on your gift list! I especially loved meeting Petals the Deer! This deer is a staple at Petal and Vine and they had him all decorated for the Christmas holidays! Whether you need fresh flowers, a gift for a friend, or a few new items to spruce up your space, be sure to check out Petal and Vine Garden & Marketplace!

Our next stop along the way was Victoria’s Parlour. This shop is unlike any that you have ever been to before and offers everything from paintings, jewelry, oriental rugs, buttons and so much more! The owner, Victoria, has a great love for oriental rugs. In fact, both her parents and grandparents were in the rug business! She has many photos of her family from years gone by showcasing their love of the rug business. Victoria also takes great pride in her button collection. You would not believe the collection of buttons that she has! I highly suggest that you stop by Victoria’s Parlour to see what goodies that she has to offer!

 

After Victoria’s Parlour, we headed over to Lemon Tree Vintage Market. This adorable store offers refreshed and repurposed furniture, the cutest home decor, gifts, clothing and more! I love all the cute lemon pieces! If you need a gift for that hard-to-buy for person, be sure to check out Lemon Tree Vintage Market. They offer something for everyone!

 

I thoroughly enjoyed our next visit along the way at Jewel Antique Mall. This mall houses over 10,000 square feet of antiques, collectibles and treasures from over 30 dealers! If you have been searching for that special something, chances are that Jewell Antique Mall has it!

We also stopped along the way to check out Reloved Resale Consignment and Shabby 2 Chic. If you are into vintage clothing, jewelry and shoes, then Reloved Resale Consignment is sure to be your new favorite stop! In addition, they offer new and designer items as well. I found a gorgeous Talbots Black Velvet Blazer on the clearance rack for $1! I also scored from the 50% off sale and purchased a brown leather Coldwater Creek jacket for only $12! If you have unwanted clothing and shoes, you can drop it off here and they will consign your items for you!

Shabby 2 Chic is such a wonderful store and I love their mission! They support single moms through Shepherd’s Village with all of the donations and items that they receive. They have the cutest designer clothing and shoes at unbeatable prices!

After all of the walking around, we needed a snack and drink so we headed to Belleair Market. Belleair Market is an establishment in the area and they are known for their selection of cigars, wines, Cuban sandwiches, snacks and so much more. The owners bought this an old convenience store six years ago, and it is now a favorite stop for so many in Belleair. I love how they take Cigar Boxes and repurpose them into gift boxes! They also offer homemade family meals like meatloaf and goulash for those nights you don’t have time to cook, as well as WonderRoast Fresh Rotisserie Chicken (one of the only left in the area) and fully catered meals for holidays or special gatherings. Belleair Market has it all! I had a delicious chicken salad sandwich made from their fresh rotisserie chicken and it was so delicious! 

Our last stop along the way was at Pallet Creations and More. This is the home to the She Shed and my friend Marsha’s space, Plate Girl. They offer stunning pieces of repurposed furniture, home decor, collectibles and more. Marsha’s space at Plate Girl is filled with plates, glassware and so many other collections. She definitely has an eye for finding gorgeous and unique pieces. Be sure to stop by and check out all the gift and home decor ideas!

No stop to The Alley at Belleair Bluffs is complete without a visit to Provence Art & Antiques. This space specializes in antique furniture, vintage accessories and creatively repurposed artisanal pieces. The garden out back is stunning. I felt like I was in a Hallmark Movie as everything was so lovely and quaint! The owner even grows fresh rosemary out front, and she was kind enough to give both Marsha and I some. It smells heavenly!

Some other shops that we did not have time to visit in The Alley are: Urban Nest Stationary, Orchid Interiors, Kay Keeling’s Art Adventure, Collum’s Antiques, Chloe’s Decor, Lady Angelo’s Art and Jewel Cafe. I will definitely be going back to explore these places for myself! 

Are you ready to go and check out The Alley at Belleair Bluffs for yourself? I have some exciting news! This Friday night, December 6, from 5-9pm, they are hosting a Winter Market! There will be vendors, live entertainment and holiday specials! Pile the family in the car and head over for a fun evening, and get some holiday shopping done while you are at it! Be sure to let them know that Heather from My Sweet Savings sent you!

Review of LEGOLAND Discovery Center Atlanta + Savings Coupon!

Disclosure: My family and I were provided with complimentary tickets to LEGOLAND Discovery Center Atlanta in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure policy)

My family and I were recently traveling through Atlanta during the holidays and had the wonderful opportunity to visit the LEGOLAND Discovery Center. Believe it or not, LEGOLAND Discovery Center can be found on the third floor of Phipps Plaza, one of Atlanta’s most prestigious malls. LEGOLAND Discovery Center is the ultimate indoor LEGO playground with 2 rides, 10 LEGO build & play zones, a 4D cinema & much more! Since my boys are huge LEGO fans, there were super excited when they found out that we were going here! 

The first thing that you will notice when you enter, is a fun exhibit all about how LEGO bricks are made. You can even go on a behind-the-scenes Factory Tour to discover how LEGO bricks are made! This is fun for all ages! 

From there, we went on the Kingdom Quest ride. This indoor ride is all about capturing the Princess! Hop aboard your chariot on the Kingdom Quest ride to rescue her.This ride is suitable for children ages 4+. I rode with Brady our youngest, while my hubby went with Drew our oldest. They both thoroughly enjoyed as we were able to shoot targets throughout the ride.

Our entire family loved the LEGO 4D Cinema! While we were there, The LEGO® Movie™ 4D A New Adventure was showing featuring Emmet, Wyldstyle, Benny, MetalBeard and Unikitty. It was so cute and had real effects like water, wind and more! There are several features available and they have new bricktastic news in store for 2019! 

There are lots of other things to see along the way at the LEGOLAND Discovery Center, including Miniland. This was my personal favorite! It features Atlanta landmarks all built by LEGOS in day and night settings. In fact, Miniland is made from nearly 1.5 million LEGO® bricks, with moving cars and trains, so even the smallest spectator will feel like a giant! It is so cool! 

Other things to do at LEGOLAND Discovery Center include: Merlin’s Apprentice Ride, Pirate Adventure Island, Duplo Village, LEGO Master Builder Academy, Earthquake Tables, LEGO Friends, LEGO Racers: Build and Test, and the Ultimate LEGO Ninjago Experience. These activities are sure to keep your little ones busy for hours. They even have their own cafe which features beverages, snacks and other delicious foods. I noticed that their prices were very reasonable too!

No trip the LEGOLAND Discovery Center would be complete without visiting the LEGO Store! They offer LEGO sets, plush, toys and more!

Experience the Rescue, Rehab & Release Efforts at Clearwater Marine Aquarium + Tampa Bay Resident Special!

Disclosure: I was provided with complimentary tickets and a tour to Clearwater Marine Aquarium in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure policy)

I often feel that living here in the Tampa Bay area of Florida, we sometimes take for granted the most remarkable attractions that we have right in our back yard. One such example for my family and I is Clearwater Marine Aquarium. I cannot believe that we have never visited this remarkable facility until this past Saturday.

Many of you may be familiar with Clearwater Marine Aquarium as it has been made famous by Winter the Dolphin. She is the bottlenose dolphin with a prosthetic tale, and her story and experience have been portrayed in The Dolphin Tale and Dolphin Tale 2 movies. Winter, along with her dolphin friend Hope live at Clearwater Marine Aquarium where they, along with many other animals are taken care of by volunteers, trainers and staff.

During our visit to Clearwater Marine Aquarium, we were given a personal tour by Allie. Allie is one of the many volunteers who give of themselves to help in the rescue, rehab and rehabilitation efforts which is the Aquarium’s number one mission. Once you step into the Aquarium, you can see why it is so easy to immerse yourself into the world of marine life rescue!

Our tour started with a stop by the animal hospital. We were able to see right into the area where animals are brought when they are sick. They have an actual surgical suite and triage where the sick animals are brought to receive treatment from the trained veterinary staff. The care given to these animals truly is remarkable! In the window, were little containers with items that they had pulled from turtles. Many turtles are brought here because they have swallowed huge fishing lines. The veterinary staff is able to remove them and to rehab the turtles. The picture below portrays just some of the reasons why animals are brought to Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Look at the wall of Sea Turtles that the Aquarium has brought back to rehabilitation!

From here, we moved along and saw the kitchen where they prepare the food for the animals. They have huge freezers filled with food, and staff are there very early every morning to prepare healthy and delicious meals for the animals. Some of the animals will eat pounds of fish each day! One of the fun facts that I learned on our tour…they feed Jell-O to the dolphins, otters and pelicans to help them with their fluid intake. How cute is that?

We loved meeting Thelma and Louise two Nurse Sharks on our tour. Did you know that Nurse Sharks are actually bottom dwellers? This means that you will more than likely find them “resting” on the bottom of the ocean floor during the day since they are nocturnal animals. Nurse sharks can grow to be as long as 13 feet and weigh as much as 330 pounds! Wow!

Of course no trip to Clearwater Marine Aquarium is complete without seeing Winter and Hope! It was hard for me to get a good picture in the lighting, but here is Winter playing! You can see where her tail is cut off. In the photo below you can see Winter’s prosthetic that attaches to her tail. This has greatly helped to aid in her rehabilitation! If you have not seen the Dolphin Tale and Dolphin Tale 2 movies, they are a must! These movies will tell you the story of how Winter was hurt and brought to the aquarium for rehabilitation. Since our trip on Saturday, my boys have watched both movies twice!

We also got to meet pelicans Ricky, Tyndall, Skylar and Matthew. Pelicans are such beautiful creatures!

The aquarium is in the middle of a huge renovation! If you visit right now, you will see that they are in the process of giving Winter a new home! There will be a new rescued dolphin complex, dolphin observation window and much more! You can see more details of the expansion HERE.

As you walk around the aquarium, you can’t help but feel the love that the everyone has not only for Winter, but for all of the animals as well. If you have never visited Clearwater Marine Aquarium, I highly suggest that you plan a trip in the very near future to see what their mission of rescue, rehab and release is all about! You will not be disappointed!

I want to send a huge thank you to Allie and the staff at Clearwater Marine Aquarium for making our trip so enjoyable! They also gifted our family with 2 huge bags of stuffed animals, books, mugs and other goodies that we have been loving! Thank you!
