Books, Coffee, and Rain | Downtown Tampa

Last weekend Lea and I went to Downtown Tampa to grab some coffee at a new coffee shop called Caffeine. We also checked out the book sale at the Old Tampa Book Company. The skies turned grey and soon the rain came down. We browsed the books inside for a good while as we waited for the rain to pass, but we didn't mind. We ended up eating lunch at the Urban Cantina which was right around the corner from the bookshop. Their tacos were fantastic and so were the drinks, although I much preferred their sangria over their margarita. After our lunch we went to mall. I wanted to purchase my favorite eyeshadow. It's a Buxom one called "Invite Only", but it wasn't on the shelves at Sephora. Before leaving we checked out the sale at Nordstrom, but we found nothing worth buying. We ended up on the other side of town at another mall to get frozen Italian caramel coffees. Ulta was across the street, so we went in there and Lea found my favorite eyeshadow. It was the last one so I was lucky in that regard. While I was there I also took the opportunity to purchase a few travel sized toiletries for our upcoming weekend trip to Virginia and Washington, D.C. in September. This was pretty much the highlight of my weekend.



  1. This is so lovely, Charlene! I really like your concept of a vlog. So much nicer than someone walking around with a camera on selfie mode. It kind of makes me want to create one.

    1. Thank you! I would like to start talking to the camera in future vlogs, but I am still a bit camera shy. Eventually I will, I just don't want to talk too much and get straight to the point.
