Fun fact: I LOVE X-Men. The X-Men were such a huge part of my childhood. From the comics to the several TV shows to the films, if it was X-Men related, I was here for it! In fact, before I named my dog Loki, I was seriously considering naming him after my all-time favorite Marvel villain, Magneto!
(What is it with me and villains?).
Speaking of Marvel, today marks day one of ACE Comic Con Midwest! (And I get to meet Marvel legends like Chris Evans and Tom Hiddleston). I can’t wait to pick up my press badge today after work. You can expect a full recap of ACE Comic Con Midwest probably on Monday.
But back to X-Men, as soon as I found out I’d be visiting Toronto, I knew that I HAD to visit Casa Loma. Aka the X-Mansion. Casa Loma is a gothic Revival style mansion and garden in midtown Toronto, that is now a museum and landmark. Continue reading
Happy Monday and welcome to the latest installment of my 12 Months of Happiness series! It’s officially October which can only mean one thing? Christmas is almost here (but really, is it Christmastime yet?).
Here are some of the things that made September an amazing month! (Don’t forget to comment down below how your September went and what things made you smile this month! I LOVE hearing from you guys about what makes you happy).
A new Blind Box & Bag Roundup post?! Say what! I know it’s been FOREVER (like a year) since the last BB&BR post but hear me out, I just haven’t been into blind boxes/bags lately. In fact, these are the first blind boxes that I’ve bought in almost a year. Sure, I still think that they are adorable but I just haven’t been feeling them lately.
That is until I saw a bunch of blind boxes at Target that I just couldn’t pass up. Things have been a little rocky for me lately so anything to bring a little extra happiness into my life is a-okay in my book. Opening blind boxes have always put a smile on my face so I thought “why not?”.
While at Target last weekend I picked up a couple of Funko Disney Afternoon Mystery Minis, some Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts LEGO Minifigures, a few 90 Years of Magic Mickey blind bags and two squishy blind bags.
Today, I’ll be talking about the Funko Disney Afternoon Mystery Minis!
Happy Monday and welcome back to another installment of my “What I’m Looking Forward To” series! Guys, it’s officially fall! I’m SO excited because, as most of you know, I’m not a huge fan of summer (it’s definitely be least favorite season #sorrynotsorry) and I’m glad that it’s finally over.
The weather these past few days here in Chicago have been perfection! It’s been in the low 70s/high 60s and I’ve been loving it! Goodbye shorts and tanks, hello long sleeves and jeans! For me, fall means traveling, cozy sweaters, Halloween fun, fuzzy socks, gorgeous weather, delicious Thanksgiving food, hanging out with friends and everything in between!
Here are a few of the things I’m looking forward to this fall (September 22 – December 21):

I am ALL about budgeting! (How else do you think I’m able to travel so often?). I’m a firm believer that you don’t have to sacrifice the “finer things in life,” you just need to know how to budget and save for the things you really want! But what about the things you NEED, like food? When it comes to my dog Loki, my number one priority is making sure that he’s getting the right kinds of food that will ensure that he’s living a happy and healthy life.
Although it can get costly, it doesn’t have too!
If you have dogs or pets, it is important to include them in your monthly budget. There can be various expenses, like food, treats, toys, vet bills, etc., and those things can definitely add up quickly. That’s why I try my hardest to find different ways to save money on Loki’s essentials.
