With these rainy days in Florida, there’s only one place bringing the heat, @wtrtampa & their new summer menu! @wtrtampa & @godfreyhoteltampa thank you for hosting an amazing dinner! The chef outdid himself and all the plates he put out were out of this world. Mixing those flavors and bringing then together in his masterpieces. Check out my stories for foodie awesomeness. This is truly one of my favorite restaurants in Tampa! **FYI my whole outfit is under $50** KeepingUpWithSMV #TampaBayInfluencers #WTRTampa #WTRGrill #GodfreyStyle #GodfreyTampa #TampaFoodie #TampaBlogger #FloridaBlogger #FLBlogger #SouthernBlogger #TampaFood #TampaCollective #TampaEats #TBeatsout #TampaBayEats #UnlockTampaBay #ThingsToDoInTampa #FLFoodie #LoveFL #FloridaLiving #SunsetViews #AExME #BFinding #BOOHOOBabes #itsronicapresets
All I want in life: for Luna to love me back and glam lashes 🙌🏾 ⠀ I love how my lash extensions from @thelashloungetampawestchase turned out! I’m obsessed the convenience of lash extensions and how they look. Swipe to see my before and after! 🤩 #gifted ⠀⠀ Have you tried lash extensions yet? I was SO scared before my first appointment, but it’s my favorite beauty hack. Not having to do eye makeup is a MAJOR key. 🔑
If you’re frustrated by the algorithm and tired of engagement pods, keep reading... ⠀ I get it. I joined a few pods when I became a blogger because I read that it helped. A few weeks ago, I FINALLY left the last one and decided to focus on organic engagement — and I’ve been seeing more interaction than ever. Here’s what helped me. ⠀ 👉🏾 What content makes you stop scrolling and read? For me, it’s easy-to-read captions with actionable takeaways, so I started doing more of that. Figure out what you love to see from other people & use it as inspiration. ⠀ 👉🏾 Don’t post every day if you don’t want to. I’d rather not post for a few days than share an image I’m not super proud of. ⠀ 👉🏾 Engage with the people who comment on your posts, whether they’re bloggers or not! Everyone likes receiving a compliment, after all. ☺️ ⠀ 👉🏾 Try to care less about whether a post tanks. 🤷🏾♀️ I hit post and then, to quote a recent meme, it’s above me now. It’s freed up a lot of mental energy and makes me feel less blah about social media. ⠀ Which tip resonates most with YOU? How are you feeling about Instagram and post engagement?
The weekend will be here before you know it and if you haven't brunched here yet, come and try these egg benedict served on top of Colombian cheese bread (pan de bono), with smoked ham and hollandaise sauce! /// Ya casi llega el fin de semana y si no has venido de brunch aun, ven y prueba el pan de bono con huevo benedictos, vienen con jamón ahumado y salsa holandesa!
Getting back into an active routine after taking a break from fitness can be really hard, which is why I’ve been putting it off. But I’m participating in @AdventHealth’s 21-day #feelwholechallenge, which is ALL about physical, mental and spiritual wellness. So excited to see how I feel at the end of these three weeks! ⠀ I love the gym, but home workouts are honestly easier and help me stay consistent! It’s harder to make excuses when you don’t have to get dressed and drive anywhere. Try to get yourself moving tonight, even if it’s only for 10 minutes! #ad #feelingwhole
Prior to this annoying sinus cold I have been fighting, I had been going to the gym regularly. Now that I am feeling better, I told myself that I need to get back in the gym. But honestly anytime I take a break from working out, I feel really intimidated to get back in the groove of exercising. Anyone else have this problem? #blazersandbluejeans
Join us in and around the Kava circle Wednesday nights at 8:30pm. 🥥 @unearthedsports is hosting an open ended bible study with FREE kava! 📖 John 6:1-15 In Polynesian culture it is common to use kava circles to facilitate conversation, decreasing anxiety, tension and stress and help people see each other on the same level. So bring your friends and let’s talk through this ancient text to find it’s eternal relevance for our lives today.
Seriously, I love this place. The community, the culture, the food—there’s so much that makes Tampa lovable and unique, and I’m proud to be a resident of the 813! #813Day #Tampaproud #TPA 📷: @palmerholmes • • • • • #thisjenngirl #Tampablogger #Tampainfluencer #Floridablogger #FLblogger #southernblogger #theeverydaygirl #petiteblogger #darlingmovement #flashesofdelight #thehappynow #petitejoys #livethelittlethings #feelfreefeed #inspiremyinstagram #unlockTampaBay #hiddenTampa #igersTampa #TampaCollective #Tampafood #Tampafoodie #Floridafoodie #Tampaeats #TampaBayeats #TBeatsout #thingstodoinTampa #Tampabae
I promised myself that I would wait until school to decorate for Halloween, but I put up my Halloween lights 3 weeks ago. Now they are officially Back to school and I can go crazy. Y’all, I cannot wait. Anyone else decorating early with me?! *photo from the 2:1 time we had with @myfourhensphotography last week in Colorado! Love your face
Friends, say hi to the newest member of the Lage family! ⠀ She’s an 8-year-old toy poodle, and I love her so much it hurts. 😭 I’m not a “dog person” but I cried when I met her so I KNEW. ⠀ Poor baby was found wandering the streets of Tampa. She’s house-trained and spayed, so they think her old owners abandoned her. ⠀ Most importantly, she doesn’t have a name because she’s a stray! @humanesocietytampabay named her Fifi but we hate it. 😂 Name ideas: GO! Winner gets bragging rights and a Starbucks gift card. 😘 EDIT: The winning name is LUNA! A gift card will hit your inbox shortly if you suggested it! 🐩 #lunalage
I love a good bowl of noodle soup. 🍜 My favorite Vietnamese dish is bún bò Huế—it’s a spicy beef noodle soup that is full of flavor! It doesn’t matter if it’s humid and in the high-80s, I still will always crave it. Head to @palmerholmes for his version of this photo, and let me know who did it better. 🤪 📷: @palmerholmes • • • • • #thisjenngirl #Tampablogger #Floridablogger #FLblogger #Tampainfluencer #southernblogger #theeverydaygirl #petiteblogger #darlingmovement #flashesofdelight #thehappynow #petitejoys #livethelittlethings #feelfreefeed #inspiremyinstagram #forkyeah #unlockTampaBay #hiddenTampa #igersTampa #downtownTampa #TampaCollective #Tampafood #Tampafoodie #Floridafoodie #Tampaeats #TampaBayeats #TBeatsout #thingstodoinTampa #Tampabae
Kava Vibes Only! No Kratom. No Alcohol. The Modernesian is putting the kava back in kava bar. Part of what makes a kava bar special is having everyone on the same vibe. Now there is nothing wrong with mixing other intoxicants with kava, like kratom, and alcohol, but doing so creates a different experience that is unique to itself and not reflective of kava. 🥥🥥🥥🥥 One Shell. One Bowl. One Tribe.
“why do you share so much of your life on social media?” ⠀ i’ve been asked this recently. some people might be offended by the question, but i think it’s a good one. i’ve been open about my mental health, my miscarriage, my career successes (& failures!), my marriage, and lots more. i know it seems like a lot to some people, so here are some thoughts. ⠀ ✖️ influencers don’t have to share their bad days with you, and i don’t think it’s inauthentic to only share the good. we know we’re all dealing with intense stuff. have grace even if you only see the “highlight reel.” ⠀ ✖️ not everyone is worthy of the deepest parts of you. i am incredibly OPEN with everyone, but i am vulnerable only with a select few. ⠀ ✖️ living your life in the public eye means people will feel comfortable judging you — anything you put out there is fair game, and i am more aware of that now than ever. ⠀ ✖️ i try to only post when i feel stable. i’m not grabbing my phone when i’m in the middle of a panic attack or mad at Vagner because i don’t want to say things i’ll regret. not about that #postanddelete life. 🙅🏾♀️ ⠀ ✖️ i am really passionate about helping people (enneagram 3w2s, holler!) and knowing that my openness is encouraging keeps me confident in my decision to share. ⠀ how do you decide whether something is too personal for social media? I’m all ears and looking forward to your thoughts, my friend! 💋
