With the start of a new year and with so much going on after the holidays, I thought it would be a great time to restart our Week in Review and play a little catch up on this week’s highlights and news from the Orlando and Central Florida Attractions and Venues!

While I have found some ‘Theme Park Friendly’ options for snacks to bring with us into the parks for Zoe, finding snacks that I enjoy taking to the parks has proven to be quite the quest until I found Mario Snack Olives!
Theme Park Friendly snacks, for our family, are ones that don’t melt, aren’t sticky, don’t require us to have a table to eat them, and can be eaten without preparation.
Packaged without the typical brine, the Snack Olives are easy to open, easily fit into my park bag, and come in a variety of flavors sure to make any olive lover happy!
Here are some of my favorite ways to bring Mario Snack Olives as I am On the Go in the Theme Parks!
If we are going to be in the parks all day, I like to pack a heavy snack to keep our blood sugar (and mood) up! I can’t tell you how many times this snack has salvaged our day in the park! Using inexpensive containers that stack nicely in my park bag, each member of our family gets their own treat with what they enjoy!
I like to add Mario Snack Olives to my salads! Since they are packaged without a lot of mess, it is easy to tear open a pouch to add an extra kick to my salad!
And finally, they are delicious on their own! I am guilty of opening a pouch to snack on while I am waiting in a queue or for a parade!
Want to give Mario Snack Olives a try? You can find them here on Amazon, in 7/11 stores in the Tampa, Lakeland and Miami areas, or by entering our Giveaway!

Win a $50 Gift Certificate to Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores
It’s almost August, and you know what that means: school bells will be ringing soon, and so will cash registers during back to school shopping. If you’re like me, shopping smarter and stretching my budget will be a priority. The Florida Sales Tax Holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, August 2 and ends at 11:59 on Sunday, August 4. Local schools go back into session in mid-to-late August, so plan now to take advantage of that. I’ll be looking for deals throughout the month.
That’s why I plan to head out to destinations like Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores, one of Central Florida’s best-kept shopping secrets where you’ll find savings up to 75% off at select stores. The village-style center offers a customer-friendly shopping experience and 50 spacious outlet shops with convenient store-front parking. Shoppers will find great deals at the area’s only Old Navy and G by GUESS outlet stores, newcomers Justice, Crocs, Calvin Klein and Levi’s® Outlet Store, as well as other well-known outlet stores include Aeropostale, Carters, Converse, Famous Footwear Outlet, Fossil, Gap, Izod, Nike Factory Store, OshKosh, Rack Room Shoes, and many more. Stop into the new Lindt Chocolate for a treat!
Here’s your chance to win a $50 gift certificate to the Center.
Even if you don’t win the gift certificate, you can get in on the savings by downloading a coupon from the Center’s web site, then bringing it to Travelpro to receive a coupon booklet valued up to $400 in savings. The Center is located at 15657 S Apopka Vineland Rd (SR 535), Orlando, FL 32821.
The LeSportsac purse we will be giving away is a Molly purse which is a great size at 9 x 14 x 7.5 in, 22.86 x 35.56 x 19.05 cm, and is a very special purse to the collection as it wasn’t a part of the initial release! The Molly purse has a ton of usable space featuring a zipped closure main compartment, exterior front and back snap closure compartments, a cell phone pocket in front compartment, and zipper pocket in back compartment. Since this is a sample bag it does not come with a matching zip closure pouch, but does come with the pattern’s Mary Doll Charm.
There are just a few days left, so don’t let the chance to win pass you by!

Congratulations Mark Bate for winning the WWE NXT tickets!!! Thanks to everyone who entered our ticket giveaway!!!
For future NXT event ticket sales, purchases of tickets for future WWE/NXT tapings will be made available at the end of each event inside Full Sail Live or online. And it’s important to know that tickets and seating for this event will be made available on a first come, first served basis.
For some of our favorite tips about attending a WWE NXT taping, check out Mike’s post!
Proceeds from ticket contributions benefit the Full Sail / WWE Scholarship Fund.
What really drew me to the LeSportsac purses is that they are super light-weight, durable, and come in sizes and shapes that are extremely practical while still being stylish.
Above all else, is that these LeSportsac It’s A Small World purses are inspired by Mary Blair’s artwork for the attraction. The colors, whimsical patterns, and playful doll charms all are such special touches that make these purses special to me.
As a tribute to the original It’s a Small World Attraction at the 1964 New York World’s Fair, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of these LeSportsac It’s A Small World bags are donated to UNICEF. And each product in this line comes with information about both UNICEF and the original It’s A Small World exhibit.
Every season they are releasing a new pattern featuring a fun new design from the It’s A Small World attraction, and I was sent a few LeSportsac bags to review.
I was sent the Spring 2013 Holland Blooming Joy Kasey and Medium Weekender Bag which I can’t wait to take to Disneyland for my first visit for the D23 Expo! The bags feature great zip closures and compartments that will make my travels more organized and fun! I love how it’s just enough ‘Disney’ without looking cartoon like.
The Deluxe Shoulder Satchel in the Around the World pattern is also a great bag for park visits and beyond, because while it is on the smaller side of purses in the line at 7.5 x 11.75 x 5 it is full of usable space and pockets with zip closures. The white background and colorful designs really scream summer to me!
The purse we will be giving away is a Molly purse which is a great size at 9 x 14 x 7.5 in, 22.86 x 35.56 x 19.05 cm, and is a very special purse to the collection as it wasn’t a part of the initial release! The Molly purse has a ton of usable space featuring a zipped closure main compartment, exterior front and back snap closure compartments, a cell phone pocket in front compartment, and zipper pocket in back compartment. Since this is a sample bag it does not come with a matching zip closure pouch, but does come with the pattern’s Mary Doll Charm.
Entering our giveaway is super easy, but make sure that you read all the details as there are ways to earn extra entries every day!
Good luck and we are looking forward to bringing you more LeSportsac giveaways in the future!

Stuck in among the Princess shirts, I found a few new hair accessories, too!
I am interested by the new Disney Couture purse designs. The Snow White bag and wallet I found are a great design, but with such a high price point I am curious to how they’ll do and if there will be more coming soon.
While it was a total Mish Mash of finds, it was still a great trip…and I picked up a little something for you to win…
To continue in the Blogiversary Giveraway fun, enter to win this really cool retro print scarf from TrenD! It’s light weight and perfect for a slightly chilly spring night.
Congratulations Michael for winning our TrenD Report Giveaway!!!
After my last Hit and Miss TrenD Report, I was BEYOND excited to find so many great things at my favorite store just in time for my Birthday (Do you hear that dear Hubby?)!
It is definitely time to get ready for spring at TrenD, because there are a ton of great tanks available! I love that the tanks all have a little something that makes them so perfect for so many styles and occasions. I really love the fun and flirty floral details that are being used on these tanks that are perfect for spring and summer!
I was also super excited to see two new styles of Maxi Dresses, since the last few styles have sold out! They have stayed with their love of black and white in a fun layered Hidden Mickey Maxi Dress. And expanding on the popularity of the Bambi Maxi Dress, they have a new style that is so adorable and perfect for a sunny Sunday!
They’re also using a lot of sketch designs in their shirts this year, and it’s super fun! From regular cotton shirts with fun details, to burnout t-shirts perfect for hot days, and even some great purses!
I was also able to find some fun jewelry and watches on this visit. It is great to see designs that work so well on shirts featured on watches, bracelets, and necklaces! I am especially in love with the layered necklaces!
The only item that I was on the fence about was a shiny vinyl bowler bag…it seems more appropriate for the fall, but it could also double as a fun carryon for summer trips.
The Le Sportsac It’s a Small World Global Journey Collection has found its way to TrenD, and it is quite possibly my new favorite pattern! The charm is more understated, and the pattern is more sophisticated. I love it!!!
This brings me to the fun new twist to my TrenD Report I talked about last report! I am going to start giving away one of my favorite pieces that I find once a month. And this month I will be giving away a LeSportsac Rectangular Cosmetic Case to one lucky reader!
Congratulations Liz on winning the LeSportsac Case!!!
I hope that you enjoyed this TrenD Report and that you have fun entering the contest! Good Luck!
