Portofino Island Day 1: Flip Flop Giveaway

Last night, I could hardly sleep knowing we would be leaving for vacation in the morning.  Today, we arrived at Portofino Island in Pensacola Beach, Florida and I am already in heaven!  Driving down the beach, you can see the resort as it stands majestically nestled between the Gulf of Mexico and the Santa Rosa Sound.  With eight miles of white sandy beaches, we couldn’t wait to get started.

Check in was a breeze and the staff was more than friendly.  We are staying in one of the five towers of Portofino Island which boasts it’s own heated pool and covered parking.  When we stepped into our three bedroom, three and a half condo, we were just speechless.  Renee from What Mommies Need and I ran around like kids in a candy store checking out our new home away from home!  The condo is bigger than my house!  The kitchen is gorgeous, and the balcony is breathtaking.  Our Master Bedroom opens onto the balcony which is equipped with a grill with tables and chairs!  Relaxation at it’s finest!

Since today was a travel day, we decided not to venture to the beach but take a swim in the pool with the family.  The area is beautiful, well kept and easily accessible from our room.  After our swim, the kids (and I) were starving, so we headed to the Lifestyle Center near Tower 4 which was only a short walk away.  With our Adventure Passes, kids eat free with a paying adult, so dinner was very reasonably priced and the food was good, too.

Tomorrow, Renee and I plan to hit the Spa for a relaxing massage and then we plan to explore the beaches with our families.  I soooooo need that massage!

GIVEAWAY

feelgoodz To celebrate our Beach Bash, Renee and I planned a few great giveaways for you!  The first is a pair of flip flops from Feelgoodz!  This New Orleans based company (gotta love my homegrown companies!), sells eco-friendly, biodegradable flip flops made in Thailand from natural rubber.   The owner, Kyle Berner, set out on a mission to not only bring these extraordinarily comfortable shoes to the United States, but to help the Thai people as well.  With every sale, 3 percent of the profits are donated to three different charities that either directly or indirectly help by improving living conditions and business opportunities.

I had the opportunity to try a pair of these flip flops, the brown and pink ones called Ladyslipper, and have them with me here in Pensacola.  I can vouch for the fact that they are super comfortable!  I normally wear a size 6 and a half and the size 6-7 fits perfectly.  I would definitely purchase more shoes from Feelgoodz in the future.

Want your feet to Feel Good?  The great people at Feelgoodz want you to feel the comfort and will donate one pair of shoes to one reader!
