Julington Creek Fish Camp

Hi Guys!

It's that time of year for graduations and celebrations of all sorts and I attended a graduation dinner for a food club friend of mine at Julington Creek Fish Camp!
This place has been on my list of places to try for a while so I was happy when my friend Deprina decided to have her dinner there. As you can see from the picture above, there are two levels.  We sat upstairs on the deck which was fitting for the occasion.  We were able to get a beautiful view of the river as the sun was setting. I was with my Nom Nom Club friends so the night was full of celebration and laughs but now on to the wonderful EATS!!!
Grilled Octopus and White Bean Salad
I didn't taste this dish because I don't like squid of any sort.  I don't like the texture, but I was told it was good.
Mahi Fish Bites
This was ordered after our waiter highly recommended it.  It has a nice crispiness and the flavor is good.  I personally could have used a tad more seasoning.  I would still order this again though!
Crispy Artichoke Hearts
These had a really nice lemony horseradish dipping sauce and parmesan and a very light crisp to them which made them easy to devour by the group!
Ceviche of The Day
The ceviche of the day this particular night was scallop ceviche. It was made with the cutest little bay scallops. I'm not a huge fan of ceviche but I did have a taste and it was very fresh and tangy.  
Low Country Boil
My girls Martha and Jenn got this dish to share and it came with Snow Crab legs, Shrimp, Oysters, Sausage, and all the fixings!   I'm sure it was delicious!
Shrimp and Grits
This was my dish, of course!  I'll give you all a second to basque in the beauty of this dish!  It was as delicious and it looks.  The shrimp were nice and large, the grits were creamy, and the toppings brought the dish together nicely.  I'd get this dish again and again!

Broiled Seafood Platter
This dish came with shrimp, fish, scallops, potatoes, and a zucchini and squash medley.  While this dish may be nice to look at, it lacked big time in the flavor department.  If I were to order this dish, I'd probably get it blacked for a little spice!
Blackened Mahi
I didn't have any of this dish but it looked amazing!  It came with a rice pilaf and green beans.
White Chocolate and Blueberry Bread Pudding
I'm normally not a fan of bread pudding but when I heard everyone raving about how amazing it was, I grabbed my spoon and took a taste!  I was wonderful!
Julington Creek Fish Camp on Urbanspoon
I think I have finally found a seafood restaurant in Jacksonville that I really enjoyed!  Everything was great and I love the views of the river from the patio.
  As always, thank you for stopping by!

MoonBeam Bash 2015

Hey Lovelies!

Last night I attended Yelp's second annual Moonbeam Bash at the MOSH Museum.  You might remember my experience last year but if not, take a look here.  It was another evening jam packed with food and fun!  I enjoy having the opportunity to support local businesses!

 I love this mouth!  It's the perfect entrance for such an event as this one!
 For starters, Moe's primed up our taste buds with their chips and queso.
 Followed by cocktails by Tito's Vodka!
 One of the coolest parts of the event was watching ice cream get made from sugar, milk, and liquid nitrogen!  I would love to do something like this in my classroom!  I think my students would get a kick out of it!
.... Add it
 .....not too much!
 ....stir
 ...we're smokin' now!
 VERDICT:  It's good!!!
 This year's event as a cosmic cosplay so there were some really amazing costumes!  These two in their Dia de los muertos get up were amazing!!!!!! I didn't dress in costume but one of the fellow attendees said "Yes, you did.  You came as a beautiful woman and nailed it!"  I'll take that!!!
 Sweet On You food Truck was there with AMAZING pastries!  I will be on the look out for them from now on because all of their sweets were delicious!  I especially loved the almond croissant.
 Fusion Food truck was there as well.  I enjoyed their spicy thai noodle salad and thai iced tea!  YUM!

  My favorite for the evening was Kaleidoscope Catering!
 
 This chicken bahn mi sandwich was so good!
 This cucumber gazpacho with garlic shrimp was so refreshing!  I loved the extra flavor added with the toast!  YUMMMMM!
 Another Broken Egg Cafe was there with some killer grits and fancy granola!

 These grits were bomb!  All I needed was a pancake to go with them!
 My second fav of the night was from my beloved Bazille!  This was the tomato jam jar.  If you visit Bazille inside of Nordstrom, it is a must have for an appetizer!
 Slider's Seafood Grille was there with a great poblano pepper and corn fritter, steak crostini, and bloody mary oyster shooters!
 Your Pie had a pretty good panini.
 Hawkers came through with a yummy pork belly slider and chicken skewers.
 There were many other vendors there last night but I was too stuffed after all of the tastings I just mentioned.
 It was a great event!  I got to hang with my foodie friends and my friend Cathy for more laughs and eating!  Can't beat that right!?!  I'm now planning my next visit to the gym!!!
As always thanks for stopping by!

Blogger's Ball 2015


Hey Dolls,

I, along with my friend Krystle, and fellow fashion blogger and friend Cathy of Minister of Style had the pleasure of attending the Eye on Fashion 2015 Blogger's Ball in Tampa last weekend!  The week consisted of several amazing events including a  Men's Collection fashion show and fashion stylist competition but we were only able to make it to the ball that Saturday evening.  Nevertheless, we made it down to Tampa for a night of glamorous night of fashion!

Krystle, Cathy, Trice
What I loved most about the event besides getting to meet some of my favorite bloggers in person was that the proceeds from the event went to Redefining Refuge, a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting for women and children who have been victims of sexual abuse and  domestic sex trafficking of minors.
This was me with Natasha Nascimento, the founder of Redefining Refuge.She was passionate about what she does and was very grateful for the support she received.
Here is me in my FABULOUS gown!  In the words of Beyonce, I was definitely "Feeling Myself!"
Some of you may have seen it before but...whatevs!  When you love something, you just love it!  You don't have to reinvent the wheel all the time.
Me and my girls!
Cathy was the walking Oscar in her beautiful gold gown from Asos!
I was so happy my friend Krystle came up to enjoy the weekend with us.  She isn't a blogger but she should be because she has great style!
These were the three beauties that spear-headed The Eye on Fashion weekend!
Michelle from Runway Translator 


Natasha from Fashionably Fabulous
These ladies did a great job putting this wonderful weekend together. 

 There was mingling, cocktails, networking, fashion, and of course bloggers!
Estrella from Estrella Fashion Report
I absolutely loved this look on fashionista, Jennifer Rodriguez!  The white suit with the cape was so crisp and stylish!  She werked that look!

We had live music from the saxophonist, Marlon Bloom as well as a DJ!

Guys are into fashion too!
One last treat from the evening were the delectable artisan chocolates by Viktoria Richards!

 Not only are these chocolates pretty to look at, they taste AMAZING!  She combines the most unique flavors together to create her truffles.
 These were my favs:
 Earl Grey Lavender
 Strawberry Reisling
 Key Lime Mango
 Blueberry
I had to politely removed myself from the area or else, I could've stood there the entire night eating those things!
 Even the bartender was fashionable!  He had the coolest mustache!  He even hooked me and my girls up with a free drink!  Gotta love that!
Overall, we had a wonderful time!  Next year, I think I'll plan to make for the full week of events! Any excuse to get dolled up, I'm all for!
As always, 
thank you so much for stopping by! I'll be back soon!
