Good thing I stopped myself mid-post. I almost forgot that about my usual Sunday link-up with Neely @ A Complete Waste of Make-Up! What kind of blogger friend would I be if I forgot her link-up on the day of her one year Sunday Social anniversary? Not a very good one at all, I'd certainly say!
This week's questions:
1. What is your favorite Social Media outlet?
For a social media junkie like me, that's a toughie. I would have to say that Instagram is my favorite social media outlet. I love seeing pictures of all things health, food, and fitness and I love catching up with all of the awesome accounts that I follow!
2. Do you subscribe to any daily news reads? If so which ones?
Although I do not subscribe to any daily news reads, per say, I do watch the daily news! That must count for something!
3. Favorite Magazine to have by the pool?
I used to love Seventeen Mag (eh, who am I kidding? I still do). Now that I'm older, however, I'm gravitating toward Cosmo or Shape! Either would suffice by the pool.
4. Favorite summertime song?
It's not necessarily my favorite summertime song, but "Beautiful Girl" by Sean Kingston is the summer song that brings back SO many memories! I think it's because that summer that song was released was the first summer that I gained a bit of freedom from the 'rents. Other that that particular song, I love any summertime country song!
5. Best summer concert you've been to?
I have never been to a summer concert! I have only been to one concert my entire life, and that just happened to be N' Sync (back when we entered the new millennium)! My love for Justin Timberlake started very young, needless to say. I'm crossing my fingers that I get to see him in concert this summer when he visits my hometown in August!
Thanks, Neely, for hosting!
A Dream is a Wish your Heart Makes: Part 3
So I concluded my week with one more trip into the city with Michelle before I prepare to tackle things on my own next week! I don't plan to document my Sweet Note endeavors every single day from now on, but I do plan to document every week! How does that sound? I'd love to keep everyone updated and in the loop!
We visited to about 10-12 different restaurants and shops on Friday (not all are featured in the following photos)! We were so lucky to locate the rather friendly, welcoming shops who gladly accepted our gluten-free sample. We're really hoping our follow-ups go well! Keep your fingers crossed!
This place is already a Sweet Note partner! We just had to do our weekly delivery... and grab our quintessential cup of coffee, of course!
Avenue Scoop was one of those adorable, vintage-ish ice cream shops that you find down the shore and such. The second Michelle and I walked in, we got a feeling that the shop would be a great fit for a Sweet Note Product. The place was teeming with ice cream, milkshakes, waffles, pastries, coffee, and more! The only thing that Avenue Scoop didn't have? A gluten-free bagel!
Nonetheless, we did our thing and proposed a phenomenal business opportunity to them. After rolling out a few kinks and answering some questions, we got the OK from them to partner up!
Welcome to the Sweet Note family, Avenue Scoop!
Of the two days that we spent in Center City together, AS was the first account that I was able to attain on-the-spot. It was such a wonderful feeling! I made my first business deal!
And last, but not least, Michelle and I stumbled into this gem. It reminded me of a miniature Whole Foods! We met with the owner, but unfortunately were unable to get our bagels in there right away. The owner, however, agreed that when we produce a completely vegan bagel, he'd be happy to work with us! Little does he know, we have a few things already under way, so hopefully we get to partner up with them sometime in the near future.
And that concludes my week of sampling in the city! I'm thinking that every Friday I will do a re-cap of the cafes and such that I encounter during the week. Thank you for all of the kind, encouraging comments that you have all left on my A Dream is a Wish your Heart Makes: Part 2 post. I'm so happy I can make you all a part of my journey!
Please don't forget to enter my giveaway!
I hope everyone has a relaxing end to their weekend!
