Blind Box & Bag Roundup 35. (Funko Disney Villains Mystery Minis)

September 26, 2016

Funko Disney Villains Mystery Minis
Happy Monday and welcome to another edition of Blind Box & Bag Roundup! If you’ve been keeping up with my BB&BR’s then you already know that I am obsessed with the new Funko Mystery Mini mold (it’s so kawaii I can’t even handle it!). I’ve really been loving how many new Mystery Minis Funko has been releasing lately and I was so EXCITED when Funko announced that there were making Disney Villains Mystery Minis. As some of you may or may not know, I’m a HUGE ‘villains’ fan. In fact, the villains are often my favorite characters in Disney films (is it just me or do villains always have the BEST songs and backstories? Speaking of villains, who else saw last night’s Once Upon A Time premiere?!!?). Since I LOVED the Harry Potter, Alice Through the Looking Glass and Disney Princess Mystery Minis so much, picking up a few of the new Disney Villains Mystery Minis was a no brainer! I’ve heard from a few people that these are supposedly hard to find at the moment but my local Hot Topic actually had two whole cases. Since I had a coupon (Hot Topic coupons ALWAYS come in handy), I decided to pick up four boxes! Continue reading

Did you know that it’s National Dog Week? I for one think that it’s awesome that there’s a special week dedicated to celebrating our four legged friends (although I definitely celebrate my little Loki all day everyday!). Before adopting Loki last year, I never knew what utter joy a dog could bring. Sure I’ve always been a HUGE animal lover and I often bond easily with my friends dogs but before Loki, I never knew what true unconditional love felt like. Although I consider myself to be a very positive and optimistic person, there are those rare days where it seems like things just aren’t falling into place the way I need them to. And then I come home to see that wagging tail and those big brown eyes and it seems like all those worries just disappear. Sure I adopted him but it was Loki who really rescued me! I honestly couldn’t imagine my life without Loki. Since I travel so often (I’m actually heading to D.C. TONIGHT), I wanted to take Loki out for a special treat to remind him just how much I love him. So I decided to pamper Loki with a little visit to Kriser’s Natural Pet! Continue reading

GoCustomized Beauty and the Beast iPad Case

Beauty and the Beast iPad case
If you follow me on Instagram, then you may remember that I got a new rose gold iPad Pro (#TreatYoSelf) last month! I’ve been wanting to upgrade to an iPad Pro for the longest time (my sister gave me her old iPad 2 back when I was in college but I’ve never had an iPad of my own) so I decided to finally take the plunge! All I can say is WOW, I love the connivence of having an iPad. Since I travel so much and often have to work while on-the-go, I like that I now have the option of leaving my computer at home. My iPad Pro is literally like a mini computer, especially since I have an attachable wireless keyboard case! Speaking of iPad cases, last week I got the most ADORABLE custom Beauty and the Beast iPad case from GoCustomized! If you’re in the market for a new tech case, I highly suggest GoCustomized! GoCustomized offers personalised phone cases, iPad cases and iPod cases! Continue reading

Fun Fact: I’ve always been a very competitive person. Now that’s not to say I’m competitive in a “I want to beat everyone else kind of way,” I’m more of a “I NEED to be better than the person I was yesterday” kind of competitive. To put it simply, I thrive on challenging myself. Ever since September started, I’ve felt a little off. Although I LOVE fall and am overjoyed that summer officially ends next week (as you all know, summer is my least favorite season), these past few weeks just haven’t been good to me. First of all, I spent the better half of the first two weeks of September completely sick. I definitely chalk my sudden sickness up to the change of weather here in Chicago. Some days it’s breezy with slight rain and then other days it feels like the middle of August all over again (dear summer weather, please go away!). In an effort to break myself out of this end of summer funk, I decided to take on a new challenge: the #TastersChoiceChallenge. Continue reading

Happy Friday and welcome back to another installment of my “What I’m Looking Forward To” series! I absolutely LOVE this series and I can’t believe that this is already the eight installment of it (man does time FLY!). If you haven’t already noticed, I LOVE making bucket listsdocumenting happy moments and writing posts like this and since I’ve had such a positive response from you all on this series, hopefully that means you guys like reading these kinds of posts as much as I like writing them! Fall OFFICIALLY starts next week and I couldn’t be more excited! I absolutely LOVE fall! For me, fall means traveling, cozy sweaters, Halloween fun, gorgeous weather, delicious Thanksgiving food, hanging out with friends and everything in between!
