Florida Instameet Hosted by Share A Little Sunshine

Pensacola Instameet
Several Pensacola and surrounding area social media influences were asked to partake in a day showcasing some of Pensacola’s greatest assets for an Instameet. VISIT FLORIDA and Share a Little Sunshine put together a jam packed morning and early afternoon of all that encompass Pensacola and Pensacola Beach. VISIT FLORIDA and Share a Little Sunshine hosted Instagramers at different 14 locations throughout the Sunshine State during this event. From Florida’s famous beaches and vacation homes to horse surfing and zoos, Floridians were able to experience what Florida has to offer in 14 cities. I took part in the Pensacola Instameet.

#Snapbacks and Whiskey Riff

whiskeyriff
Love a snapback. If you love and follow country music and country music accounts, you are bound to have come across a Whiskey Riff article. The creators of the site, Wes and Steve, are very active in writing articles and posting across their social channels. Their articles provide laughs, information and fun about country music and country life. They’ve started a country lifestyle brand and continue to make it better. Follow them for relevant articles, join the lifestyle with their merchandise and let’s face it, they are just plain fun. They are the type of guys that you try to track down in Nashville during CMA Fest because you want to have a drink with them………I’m not saying I did it, okay, maybe I tried. They are just that fun to follow.

Why you must eat at The Gulf in Gulf Shores, Alabama

The Gulf - Orange Beach
The first thing you’ll notice about The Gulf restaurant is the building. It is constructed out of old shipping containers in matching bright blue. It creates a unique atmosphere from the outside but once you walk through one of the openings to the back, you’ll fall in love and never want to leave. There is something catching your eye in every direction, whether it’s the fire pit down in the sand, the eclectic outdoor furniture, the locks on a fence hidden in the corner, quotes on the wall and pillows and then the gift shop, there is always something to see. Each visit I discover a new hidden gem – as they move furniture often, change out tables and chairs, and are always adding something to make your visit more pleasurable. The gift shop is my favorite place to shop for unique gifts – I always walk out with a t-shirt, magnet, candle or cup. Watch out for the resident cat – I’m kidding, she’s so friendly and sometimes just sleeping next to the register. It is super pet friendly and I love seeing that at outdoor restaurants.

A Toadlickin’ Good Time

IMG_5180.JPG
Toadlick Music Festival. Now a southern staple of the music scene located in Dothan, Alabama. It is South Alabama’s largest music festival and this year it celebrated its 5th year. In previous years, Toadlick was held in April and after fighting with rough weather every year, the organizers decided to move the festival to June. So why the name Toadlick? The festival was already in creation before a name was formed. We’ve heard over the years that it all happened around a campfire one night. Toadlick Festival President, Chris Gilbert confirmed that they wanted a catchy name and his little cousin said Toadlick – it caught his attention and it stuck.
