Riverwoods: Brands to Bloggers Review and Giveaway!

A week ago on Saturday – I had the fun opportunity to go with these fun people…

Blickenstaffs

… To review these fun stores at the Shops at Riverwoods

title

… for a brand to bloggers event hosted by CBC and Local Community Hotspots!

We first unlocked our inner child at Blickenstaffs!

“The concept was to create a place where people of all ages could go and just be a kid again. There are plenty of places to buy toys and candy but Blickenstaff’s carries hundreds of toys and candy items that cannot be found in the big box stores. The toys, candy, music and décor have all been carefully selected to create an unforgettable nostalgic experience.”

I have been to this fun little vintage store a couple times and I always leave with a bag full of goodies and a new game to introduce to my family – They have all kinds of unique games and old fashion candies that I have never seen anywhere else!

Next we headed over to Called to Surf -

Hello! Can you say cute swimsuits?? Because I can!



Have you ever needed a swimsuit in the middle of winter and can’t find one anywhere? Well, now you know where to look! The little shop is darling too!

Next we took a tour of Provo Beach Resort – This place screams a good time!
There is so much for both kids and adults to do here! A rope course, a flow rider, a big play ground, croquet! and if you don’t want to do any of these things – then drop off your kids and head to the Spa!! ooohhhh yeah!

But seriously – this would be a great date night – and a way to feel some summer lovin’ on a winter date!

The last place we stopped at was Malawi’s Pizza – I start drooling just thinking about it!

Malawis Pizza Malawis Pizza
Spinach Artichoke Pizza                                                          Apple Berry Salad

Malawi’s is so yummy! You get to make your own pizza and by the time you sit down – it is piping hot and on your table – no waiting! yay!! and the best part (besides the amazing pizza and salad) is that for every meal YOU buy, THEY will provide a nutritious meal to a hungry child in Malawi Africa. Awesome! So, go and feed your face and a hungry child! You will thank me!

I’m not going to lie – It was really fun!
And if you don’t believe me you can read about it here too!

I can't decide! I really want to try Blickenstaffs, but the pizza is calling my name! I think the inner child in me is winning the battle, and I would love to go to Blickenstaffs!

Kristie said...

I have heard loads about Blickinstaffs, so that would probably be where I would go. But the Provo Beach Resort sounds like a fun place for a short date, which my anniversary is coming up, so that might be the thing to do. :)
