As some of you may know, Loki JUST turned two on Valentine’s Day, so of course I had to shower him with lots of fun treats and toys. While Loki does love getting new toys to play with, he’s definitely more of a foodie (I wonder where he gets it from?)! Ever since I adopted Loki from PAWS Chicago back in 2015, CESAR® has been his go-to wet food. It was the first meal he had in his new home and I think because of that, it’s sort of comforting for him. It’s so funny because as Loki is getting older, I’m starting to witness new little quirks in his personality that I didn’t seem to see before. For example, no matter where Loki is in the house, if you say “outside?”, he will RUN to the backdoor so he can go play in the backyard. I’ve always noticed that whenever he sees me grabbing a CESAR® wet food cup, he instantly goes and sits by his food bowl (clever dog!).  Continue reading

12 Months of Happiness: February 2017

February 27, 2017

12 Months of Happiness
Happy Monday. I swear, 2017 is zooming by! Last night while I was designing my planner layout for the upcoming week, I literally gasped out loud when I realized that it will be March later this week?! Wasn’t it JUST January? These past few months have been CRAZY (in a good way), hence the odd/unorganized posting schedule on the blog lately. Usually, I try and update at least three times a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) but I’ve definitely been slacking a little bit this year. BUT on the positive side, I’ve been working almost non-stop on my screenplay these past few weeks and I’ve been working on something else super secret that I don’t want to jinx (so I won’t go into that much detail) but let’s just say I foresee a BIG change heading my way in 2018! Here are some of the things that made February an amazing month: (Don’t forget to comment down below how your February went and what things made you smile this month! I LOVE hearing from you guys about what makes you happy): Continue reading

And the Oscar Goes To…[2017 Oscar Predictions]

Oscars 2017 Best Picture Nominations
Next to Christmas and my birthday, Oscar night is one of my FAVORITE days of the year (no seriously, I LOVE the Oscars)! Every year I make it my personal goal to see ALL of the Oscar nominated films BEFORE the Oscars (and before they even get nominated!). I love seeing dozens of movies throughout the year and guessing which films the Academy will recognize (I’m usually 90% right!) I’m happy to say that this year marks the NINTH straight year that I’ve completed my goal of seeing every Best Picture Oscar nominated film (if you can’t already tell, I’m a huge film buff!). For the past three years here on the blog, I’ve been able to correctly predict (almost) EVERY major Oscar win (I only got one prediction wrong back in 2015) so here’s hoping for another year of successful predictions. Here are my predictions for the 89th Academy Awards: Continue reading

Blind Box & Bag Roundup 42. (Beauty and the Beast Mystery Minis)

February 21, 2017

Beauty and the Beast Mystery Minis
Happy Tuesday and welcome to another edition of Blind Box & Bag Roundup! I was going to post this yesterday (since I usually post Monday’s, Wednesday’s and Friday’s) but since it was a holiday I thought “why not just take the day off!” If you’ve been keeping up with my BB&BR’s then you already know that I am obsessed with the new Funko Mystery Mini mold (it’s so kawaii I can’t even handle it!). I’ve really been loving how many new Mystery Minis Funko has been releasing lately and I was so EXCITED when I heard they were releasing Beauty and the Beast mystery minis! As I’ve said (probably 1,000 times) on the blog before, Beauty and the Beast is my all-time favorite movie! At first I was a little apprehensive when it was announced that Disney was making a live-action version (because NOTHING can compare to the original, well the original animated Disney version) but as soon as I saw the first teaser trailer all of those worries went away! I can’t wait for the live-action Beauty and the Beast to come out next month (I already have my tickets and everything!).  Continue reading

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
