To conclude our amazeballs vacation we headed North and stopped in Orlando where we stopped by an incredible Record Store, a few vintage shops, and a cafe that sold coconut scented salts in the bathroom.




This place was called Rock and Roll Heaven and it was pretty well, to be trite, heavenly. Although all the stuff on the upper shelves was not for sale and I was mighty bummed because I wouldn't have minded leaving with a talking Beetlejuice doll. The layer of dust on the items really should have been a clear give away to us. We did not leave empty handed mind you, found an album or two (or four...)



I don't remember what this vintage shop was called (it was across the street from Rock and Roll Heaven if you're in the area and interested) but it was chocked full of cute, I would have snatched up this pink beaded dress in a minute if I thought I could fit into it (or afford it). I wish we had not been full before we got to The White Wolf Cafe because I tried the pineapple upside down cake and it was officially to die for. I have been craving pineapple upside down cake since and can't find it anywhere!


Charleston was the last stop before home - if you don't count a few gas stations and rest stops - on our lovely vacation. I had visited Charleston once when I was about 10 and thought it was such a gorgeous place and this visit did not disappoint. The entire city was like an J. Crew advertisement, I'm surprised I didn't see anyone with a sweater slung across their shoulders walking a white cheetah or something (Why would that happen? Who knows, this is where my brain goes, I just live with it)...

We had lunch at a placed Hominy Grill where I tried fried green tomatoes and buttermilk pie for the very first time and also had a big plate of Shrimp and Grits. Afterwards we did a little site seeing and then a little shopping at a comic store (got a few action figures and a few comic books) and a quick run through an awesome costume/Halloween store called Hokus Pokus Entertainment. I really wanted this sheep mask I saw, we got there within 15 minutes of closing so no sheep mask for me, baah :( I really wasn't feeling well while we were in Charleston, I had a cold and a kidney infection simultaneously so most of the site seeing was done in the car so I apologize for the bug stained window.









So there you have it, the conclusion of a fabulous vacation. I hope you enjoyed the pictures and since I eluded to it before, my next vacation is in July (I really hope it's not hotter than all balls while we are there); I am returning to to the big bad apple or more specific Brooklyn because my boyfriends band will be playing at a club there! I'm excited to spend time with the members of Todesbonden, they are a oodles of fun. The planning for outfits, shopping, and food have already been set in motion so it is onto the next...

I want to go there! PS you have to come to Connecticut to see people with sweaters slung across their shoulders walking white cheetahs. ;)

The vintage shop was stuffed to the gills, I really should have bought something. Grr at me. They had this really cute white woven poncho from the 1970's, it was beyond adorbs. Thank you!

You definitely should go to all of the above places, they were all fantastical. Haha, not even going to lie, I'd adopt a white cheetah if I could.

Did you buy me some cocunut salt from the bathroom?! I just want to eat with you. All the time. I love pineapple upside down cake and everything you post, looks so damn good. Let's just be food friends that travel the world and eat all of it's food. The end.

...No? Is that what you asked for? I thought it was a gopher but I ates it :P

Haha that's what my boyfriend says, he always jokes that I introduced him to "good food". This lady likes to eat, what can I say. Pineapple upside down cake is the diggity do, why don't people make it more? This travel, friends, and food thing sounds perfect - start packing!

Oh my god, the picture where you're talking about the Beetlejuice doll, I had that exact Gabrielle from Xena the Warrior Princess action figure! Aling with Xena (of course) and Callisto... Woah, the memories just came flooding back to me! Xena was my LIFE. I'd give anything to have been in that store! ♥
