Influencer Pick of the Week - Zoe (@tampaish)
Hi everyone! I’m Zoe (@tampaish): a local foodie, new cat mom (my kitty’s instagram is @omyelia!), and medical student. I love supporting local small businesses, and I so miss those pre-COVID days of going out to local markets and meeting local creatives! Another one of my favorite things is bubble tea, aka boba, aka “those teas with weird black balls at the bottom”… (Psst: guess what, if you hate those balls, you can just get the tea without them.) Lucky for me, Tampa Bay has lots of boba spots!! I wrote a post on my blog detailing my favorite spots last year, and I’d like to share some all-time faves all around Tampa Bay with you now, which all happen to be small family-owned businesses:
