Reliving My Childhood | Thrifting Adventures

August 6, 2018

Vintage Disney VHS Videos
Hey guys, Happy Monday! Although I’m currently in Disney World, aka my second home, and I usually don’t post while traveling, I wanted to share another post in my “Thrifting Adventures” series. I LOVE heading down to my local Goodwill to see if I can find some cool finds.

Whenever I go thrifting I try not to have any exceptions. I don’t want to go into it thinking “I hope I find this” or “I wonder if they’ll have this.” It’s always best to just go with the flow and have zero exceptions when thrifting. That way, when you DO find something, it’s that much better!

Here’s what I found at Goodwill:

To Travel is to Live [Travel TAG]

Eiffel Tower Paris at Night
Happy August everyone. It’s crazy how fast this summer has been going by. (But hey, no complaints here, bring on fall and winter please!). Even though I’m not the biggest fan of summer, I can’t deny that this summer has been a great one. In fact, I spent the first day of summer exploring Toronto, Canada. 

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). Since it’s now August, that means it’s time for another Tag! 

And since I started out this summer with a trip to Canada and next week I’ll be in Disney World, I thought today would be the perfect timing for a “travel tag.”

12 Months of Happiness: July 2018

July 30, 2018

Happy Monday and welcome to the latest installment of my 12 Months of Happiness series! This summer has been really awesome so far. We had a few super hot days here in Chicago but the last few days have been in the 70s/80s so I definitely can’t complain. And since July is finally coming to an end, that means my Disney World + Disney Cruise countdown can officially begin!

In just six days I’ll be back at home in Walt Disney World. (I can’t wait to explore Toy Story Land!). And in just 11 days I’ll be back on the Disney Dream for another incredible Disney Cruise. I CAN’T WAIT!!

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

Dear Chicago, I Love You

July 27, 2018

Have you ever written a love letter before? (Who am I kidding, it’s 2018, no one writes letters anymore). There’s just something so lovely about writing down your feelings and sharing those words with someone, or something, that you love. If someone were to ask me “Who was your first love?”. I’d easily answer “Chicago!”. 

I’ve lived in Chicago for 23 years now (since I was three) and I find myself falling in love with this city more and more each day! 

Here’s some of my favorite things about Chicago:

DIY Broadway Playbill Binder | Organizing Your Playbill Collection

🎶 “What is this feeling. So sudden and new? I felt the moment I laid eyes on you!”. 🎶

I vividly remember that bright summer day back in 2006 when I first truly feel in love with Broadway. It was a Wednesday and I was getting ready to see my first ever Broadway show: Wicked. Ever since I was a kid I had a special connection to The Wizard of Oz. And after watching Idina Menzel’s speculator 2004 Tony’s performance, I knew I HAD to see Wicked as soon as it opened in Chicago.

12 years later and my love for the theatre has only grown stronger. Even though Wicked was the first Broadway musical I saw, my love for Broadway started much earlier. I guess you could say I got my love of Broadway from my mom. Back when she lived in London (which is where my older sister was born) my mom saw the Original West End productions of Les Misérables and Cats. 

How lucky is she?!
