Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (C2E2) 2018

Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo
I feel like it’s been a hot second since I’ve uploaded (yikes!). I’ve just had so many deadlines back to back that I haven’t really had the time to sit down and blog. Enough with the excuses though.

Last weekend (April 6-8) was the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo and like always, I had an absolute blast! That’s one of the things I LOVE so much about living in Chicago, there’s always some fun event, exhibit, show, whatever, going on at any given moment. 

From those of you don’t live in Chicago, or haven’t checked out my previous C2E2 recaps, C2E2 is a Chicago fan convention dedicated to comics, pop culture, graphic novels, anime, manga, video games, toys, movies, and television. So essentially, it’s similar to other “comic cons” but it’s more pop culture and entertainment based. 

Here are a few of my favorite photos from C2E2 2018: Continue reading

Relaxing With Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold

April 8, 2018

Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold
You know what one of my favorite things about working remotely is? Getting to work from ANYWHERE? Although most days I do work from my home office, sometimes I like to spice things up a little. On Tuesdays I love working from the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (since admission is free for Illinois residents on Tuesdays). It’s so much fun typing away while being surrounded by amazing artwork.

Another great thing about my job, and being able to work from anywhere, is the fact that I can still work while I’m traveling. This is what allows me to travel so much (and take all those bi-monthly Disney trips!). In fact, next week I’ll be working from New York City (since I’m heading there on Thursday to celebrate my 26th birthday, which is the following Tuesday April 17th, with friends).

Yup, all I need is good Wi-Fi (thank goodness I have my own portable WiFi router, that things is a life saver) and my trusty computer and the world is my office! A few days ago I decided to enjoy the semi-decent spring weather by grabbing my laptop, a cold Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold and making my backyard my “office” for the day! Continue reading

Exploring The Great Outdoors With Your Pooch

Exploring The Great Outdoors With Your Pooch (& Milk-Bone)
With the winter weather melting away, Loki has been overjoyed to be outside again! Luckily, unlike the east coast and rest of the midwest, Chicago hasn’t been experiencing random cold fronts or snowfall. (The worst we’ve had so far is a few rainy days!). One of my favorite things about spring (besides the fact that it’s my birthday season) is the gorgeous weather. 

Loki LOVES the fresh air and playing outside so I always feel a little guilty in the winter because he can’t be outside as much as he’d like too. (Although, Loki does love playing in the snow!). Whether you’re just taking your dog on a walk, going hiking, visiting the dog park or just playing fetch, it’s important that your dog stays in tip-top shape and feeling their best!

Here are a few tips for conquering the great outdoors with your pooch:

Five Spring Cleaning Tips For Dog Owners

April 2, 2018

*Special thanks to The Libman Company for sponsoring today’s post! As always, all opinions are my own*
It’s that time of year again: Spring! Fun fact: I LOVE spring. Not only is it my birthday season (T-minus 15 days until my birthday) but it also just so happens to be my favorite season as well. Flowers start to bloom, the weather warms up. What’s not to love about spring?

I know a lot of people dread “spring cleaning” but I actually love it! I’m all about cleanliness and organization, so obviously spring cleaning is right up my alley. Although, ever since I adopted my dog Loki back in 2015, my spring cleaning work load has basically doubled. Having a dog can definitely increase the amount of work you need to do for spring cleaning, but don’t fret, I’m here to help!

Here are Five Spring Cleaning Tips For Dog Owners: Continue reading

12 Months of Happiness: March 2018

March 30, 2018

Happy Friday and welcome to the latest installment of my 12 Months of Happiness series! This month I 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 this time I’ve decided to just upload one vertical photo to represent each “happy thing.”

I’ve really been working on my Pinterest game lately (hence the new vertical images format) and I’ve definitely seen great results so far. My blog traffic has almost doubled in past three months. In fact, my latest Be Our Guest post and my Disney Cruise Line posts did amazing on Pinterest (and they’ve brought crazy traffic to the blog!). I guess I’m not the only person obsessed with Disney hehehe!

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