Six Tips for Traveling with Pets + The Best Pet-Friendly Hotel

February 15, 2017

*Special thanks to Radisson RED for sponsoring today’s post! As always, all opinions are my own*Tips for Traveling with Pets
Since yesterday was Valentine’s Day, I got to thinking about love and the things and people that I love. When it comes down to it, there are two things that I LOVE more than anything on the planet: traveling and my dog, Loki. Speaking of Loki, not only was yesterday Valentine’s Day but it was also Loki’s birthday (he turned two!). Although I’ve always been a big traveler, ever since graduating college in 2014, I’ve found myself traveling more than I ever have in my entire life. In 2016 alone I traveled to Florida and California multiple times, Washington D.C., St. Louis, Indiana, the Bahamas, Amsterdam and Paris (TWICE!). Yup, traveling is definitely one of my favorite hobbies! You know who else loves to travel? Loki! Over the past (almost) two years, I’ve learned a few things about what to do and what not to do when it comes to traveling with pets. Here are my top six tips for traveling with your dog Continue reading

Things I Love + Valentine’s Day Tag

February 14, 2017

Disney Pins
Happy Valentine’s Day! Although I don’t usually post on Tuesdays, I thought it would be fun to post a little “Things I Love + Valentine’s Day Tag” today. As some of you may recall, I’ve been trying to post one Q&A/Tag post per month (so you guys can get to know a little more about me and I can in turn learn more about you guys). Like I said in my Disney TagFall/Halloween Tag and Winter Wonderland/Christmas Tag posts, I always have so much fun reading these kinds of posts and watching Youtube tag videos because I feel like you really get to learn more about the person behind the blog (or channel in the case of YT). Feel free to answer any of these questions for yourself down in the comments below (I’d LOVE to hear your answers)!

VNYL | Curated Vinyl Records Delivered Monthly

February 13, 2017

VNYL
After hearing a ton of mixed reviews (from both word of mouth and online reviews) about VNYL, I decided to finally bite and the bullet and check it out for myself. As some of you may or may not know, I’m a HUGE vinyl lover and I’ve been collecting records for almost four years now. I started collecting records after my sister got me a record player, a turquoise Crosley Cruiser Turntable that I named Little Darling, for my 21st birthday and since I’m turning 25 later this year, that equals four years of collecting!. Speaking of turning 25 (I still can’t believe I’ll be 25 in April), one of the things I really want to cross off my 25 before 25 bucket list (before April) is “own 100+ records.” Although I’ve been going on countless vinyl hunts lately, I’m not quite at 100 records yet (and I refuse to buy any old records just so I can hit 100!). During Cyber Monday (that seems like forever ago doesn’t it), VNYL was having an awesome deal where you could get a two month membership for just $40 and since you get three records per month, that’s $40 for six records (which isn’t half bad if you ask me!).  Continue reading

Exploring the Catacombs of Paris

February 10, 2017

Catacombs of Paris
Happy Friday everyone! I know my blogging schedule has been a little (okay, a lot) “off” this year but what can I say, 2017 has been crazy you guys (and it’s only been two months?!). Don’t get me wrong, it’s been crazy in a GOOD way. Although I’ve been super sick (seriously, I don’t think I’ve been this sick in my life) for the past, what seems like, two/three weeks, 2017 has already been filled with so much awesome news and a bundle of amazing new opportunities for both me and my blog. I’ve also been in the process of planning some fun new trips (for possibly 2018). Ever since my trips to Paris last year, I’ve been itching to go on more international trips! Speaking of Paris, when I first visited Paris last spring (April), there were a few places that I really wanted to check out but due to timing and other issues, I just didn’t get a chance to visit them. One of the places that I really wanted to visit was the Catacombs of Paris so I made sure to make it a priority when I visited Paris again in December. I’d heard so many interesting things about the Catacombs of Paris and how it was a place you “had to experience in person to understand.” Continue reading

Scarlett’s Steakhouse Review | Carnival Valor

February 6, 2017

Scarlett's Steakhouse Review
As some of you may recall, I went on my first ever cruise (to the Bahamas) in November (technically the cruise set sail October 30 but it ended in November so..). Before setting sail on my cruise, I would have never pegged myself as a “cruise person” but I had such a blast that I’m actually in the process of planning another cruise (possibly during the summertime!). One of my favorite things about my cruise (besides getting to explore the Bahamas obviously) definitely had to be all the yummy food! Seriously, there was SO much delicious food and awesome eateries aboard the Carnival Valor. While there are a variety of dining options for breakfast, lunch and dinner such as Guy’s Burger Joint (which I LOVED), buffets, a 24-hour Pizzeria, 24-hour soft serve ice cream and frozen yogurt and 24-hour Room Service (which I HIGHLY suggest you take advance of) that ARE included in the price of your cruise, there are a hand full of restaurants and specialty dinning options that are not included in the cruise price (before setting sail, make sure to familiarize yourself with what is and is not included in the price of your cruise). Since this was my first cruise, and I wanted to try and experience every aspect of cruising, I decided to try out at least one “specialty dining” experience while abroad the Carnival Valor. So, I decided to spend the final night of my cruise (as a sort of last hurrah) dinning at Scarlett’s Steakhouse. Continue reading
