Tell us a little about yourself!
Hi! I’m Ashley Brooke, a beauty and lifestyle blogger at ashleybrooke.com, where I’ve dedicated my time for over 10 years to celebrating life’s big moments and everyday adventures!
What is your favorite thing about where you live?
The sunshine, for sure. Even though the Summer is HOT HOT HOT, there’s no shortage of Vitamin D around here!
Which Maylis shoes are your favorites to wear out and about in Orlando?
The Rita Mule! SO comfortable!
When is the best time of year to visit Orlando?
I would say January-March; it’s downright magical.
If someone was spending one day in Orlando, what should their itinerary be?
I would head to Winter Park’s Park Avenue. It’s the most beautiful little street, tucked under expansive oak trees, with endless shopping and treats! You can spend the entire day just strolling the Avenue, playing in the park, and sipping prosecco at golden hour. Don’t miss the Winter Park Boat Tour--it’s the best way to see the town in all of its glory!
