Last week, the bf and I headed out on a 3 day road trip all around the sunshine state to hunt down the best grilled cheese sandwiches in Florida. After spending too many a few hours online, I became overwhelmed by all the grilled cheese goodness that our beautiful state had to offer. So I did what any blogger girl with 34,000 followers would do and went straight to social media for a little help.

But alas, if you must know which ones reigned supreme, keep reading and I’ll fill you in on our favorites. Continue reading

And as much as wasting my money on buzz fashion and staring at weirdos excites me, I’ve always had the strongest affinity for the mall food itself. Continue reading
