What I'm Looking Forward To This Fall
Happy Friday 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. It’s crazy because weather wise, this summer wasn’t to bad but for some odd reason mother nature chose this week (the first week of fall) to have a temper tantrum.

It’s literally been 90+ degrees for the past three days in Chicago and I don’t think I can take it anymore. Fingers crossed we see that amazing breezy fall weather soon! Regardless of the weather, I’m just so happy that fall is finally here. 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: Continue reading

As you all know, I’m a HUGE fan of all things kawaii! In fact, one of my first stops whenever I visit Epcot in Walt Disney World is the Japan Pavillon. Even though I’m heading to Disney World next month (for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival), I found myself having a little bit of Japan Pavillon withdrawals last weekend. Luckily the Mitsuwa Marketplace in Chicago had just want I needed to get my kawaii fix! Here are a few photos from my visit to the Mitskwa Marketplace: Continue reading

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things

September 18, 2017

Happy Monday everyone! I know its been a while (almost two weeks, yikes) since my last post and I definitely want to apologize for all the radio silence here on the blog. Things have been a little hectic lately (in a good way!). I’ve been working nonstop on my screenplay and between that, planning some upcoming trips and looking into a little home renovation, I haven’t had that much free time to dedicate to blogging.

But don’t fret, I’m back to my regular posting schedule (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays)! I have so many fun posts lined up and I can’t wait to share them with you. I always have such a blast with my Tag/Q&A posts (since they really help you guys get to know me a little better), so I thought I’d do something a little similar today.

If you’ve been following my 12 Months of Happiness series for the past three years (has it really been that long?!), then you already know that I’m all about positivity and being optimistic! So today I thought it would be fun to share a few things that always seem to make me smile! Continue reading

Must Have: September 2017

September 4, 2017

Must Have ItemsHappy Monday (and Labor Day). It’s September, which means new month, new Must Have list! I for one am SO happy that it’s September because that means fall is almost here and we can wave goodbye to summer (aka my LEAST favorite season!). I just love fall so much (I’m one of those people who starts decorating for fall/Halloween once it hits September 1st!). Even though it’s still technically summer, the weather here in Chicago has been so fall-like (I’ve been loving it!). Like with all of my Monthly Must Have lists, these are not necessarily items that I “need,” it’s just a list of things I currently have my eye on. Here are my Must Haves for September:  Continue reading

12 Months of Happiness: August 2017

August 31, 2017


Happy Thursday (it’s so weird to type that since I normally only blog on Monday’s, Wednesday’s and Friday’s) and welcome to the latest installment of my 12 Months of Happiness series. I know that I say this every month but I still can’t believe how fast 2017 is zooming by! I feel like summer JUST started and now BOOM! tomorrow’s September!? I think one of the big reasons why I feel like 2017 is going by so quickly is because I’ve been busy this year! With constant traveling and non-stop work on my screenplay, I feel like time is just flying by (you know what they say, time flies when you’re having fun!). Here are some of the things that made August an amazing month (Don’t forget to comment down below how your August went and what things made you smile this month! I LOVE hearing from you guys about what makes you happy!): Continue reading
