What’s in My Disney Parks Bag: Disney World Must Haves

May 21, 2018

Disney World Must Haves
As most of you know, even though I live in Chicago, I travel to Disney quite often. In fact, ever since I became an annual pass holder back in 2015, I’ve visited Disneyland and Disney World at least seven times a year. I’ve also been to Disneyland Paris twice and am heading on my second Disney Cruise this August! (To me there’s no such thing as too much Disney!). 

Since I frequent the Disney Parks so often, I’ve become sort a Disney expert. (Especially when it comes to things like packing, best times to visit, how to save money, etc!). Over the years I’ve definitely learned the do’s and don’t of what to bring to Disney. 

Here’s what’s in my Disney Parks Bag:

The Jim Henson Exhibition at the Museum of the Moving Image | NYC

The Jim Henson Exhibition at the Museum of the Moving Image
You all know how I feel about museums; they’re the best! Whenever I visit a new (or old) city, I always make sure to check out the museums, especially if there’s a cool new exhibit going on. And although I’ve been to NYC more times than I can count, I’ve never been to the Museum of the Moving Image (until recently!).

Since I’m such a huge Jim Henson fan, I knew I had to check out The Jim Henson Exhibition at the Museum of the Moving Image during my trip to New York last month. I decided not to bring my DSLR camera on this trip (in an attempt to “live more in the moment”, something I’ve been doing a lot more of lately) but I did take a few pictures on my iPhone. So I thought it would be fun to share them with you all today.

Here are a few photos from the Museum of the Moving Image:

Netflix TV Shows Tag

Netflix TV Shows Tag
Happy Wednesday! As some of you may recall, I’ve been trying to post one Q&A/Tag post per month/every few months (so you guys can get to know a little more about me and I can in turn learn more about you guys). It’s been a while since my last Tag so I thought I’d do a fun Netflix inspired one today.

Here’s how the tag works. You choose five TV shows and then answer a set of random TV related questions. The questions each correspond with how you numbered each show. It will all make sense in a minute, trust me. I decided to go with five shows available on Netflix. (They don’t have to be Netflix original programs, just currently on Netflix!).

Here’s the shows I chose (FYI, these are all just random shows I enjoy!).

Five Tips For Maintaining A Healthier Lifestyle

Five Tips For Maintaining A Healthier Lifestyle
Happy Monday! As some of you may already know, for the past few years I’ve been on a mission to live a healthier lifestyle. I decreased my fast food intake, I starting doing yoga (yoga is the BEST), I joined a gym and I’ve been finding lots of fun new ways to stay active. When it comes to staying active, I think I’ve finally found a routine that works best with my busy schedule.

For now, my workout routine consists of daily (or every other day) jogging (or biking now that the weather is so nice), weekly yoga classes and weekend visits to the gym! If I’ve learned anything over these past few years it’s that getting healthy starts with YOU. If you want to change, than YOU have to make an effort! Sure it’s not always easy, but trust me, it’s worth it!

Here are my five simple tips for maintaining a healthier lifestyle:

12 Months of Happiness: April 2018

April 30, 2018

One World Trade Center
Welp, my birthday month officially ends today. (Yes, I’m one of those weirdos who celebrates their birthday ALL month long). I feel like April came and went in the blink of an eye. Maybe because I was so busy this month? I don’t know but it’s crazy to think that tomorrow’s May!?

If you checked out last month’s 12 Months of Happiness post then you may recall that I recently decided to switch up the format a little bit. If you’ve been following along with this series, you know that I usually upload a three photo collage of each “thing” that made me happy that month. But now I’ve decided to just upload one vertical photo to represent each “happy thing.”

(Aka I’m upping my Pinterest game!).

Here are some of the things that made April an amazing month: (Don’t forget to comment down below how your April went and what things made you smile this month! I LOVE hearing from you guys about what makes you happy):
