All Things Tampa & Joyful Notion

Dedicated to living in Downtown Tampa, I love seeing the growth and development of how this beautiful city has come alive. From exploring the city to watching Tampa Bay from above to taking runs down the River Walk, utilizing Julian B Lane Park to shoot around basketball which is a passion of mine, and being in the center of our winning professional sports teams is exciting. Also, being able to jump to Football, Hockey, Baseball games and finally ending my journey at Sparkman Wharf’s very first boutique, Joyful Notion is captivating to me. Joyful Notion happens to be my absolute favorite place to shop for clothes and pick up fresh flowers where I get to create my own bouquet.

Joyful Notion was introduced to me before the boutique even opened. It’s been a pleasure meeting Crystal, an entrepreneur with heart and dedication. Crystal allowed me to be one of her first models for her company and I always love venturing to the store to see new and upcoming styles. Crystal also lets her customers create wonderful bouquets. Not only do I get to walk into an amazing scented store but picking beautiful flowers is always fun. Make sure you check out Joyful Notion at Sparkman Wharf and follow me on Instagram @lisagpatel 😊
