Disneyland Paris Haul: Christmas 2016

January 13, 2017

Disneyland Paris Haul
Happy Friday! It’s a new month (and new year), which means it’s time for a new Disney Haul! Since I recently shared some of my favorite photos from Christmastime at Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney Studios Park, I thought today would be the perfect day to share my latest Disneyland Paris haul! Speaking of the Disney Parks, I’m heading to Disney World this weekend (in a few hours actually) to check out the first ever Epcot International Festival of the Arts and I’m so excited! If you’re a Disney (or Universal Orlando, since I’ll be visiting there too) lover, like me, or if you’re curious about the Epcot International Festival of the Arts, make sure to follow along on Instagram and snapchat (simplysinova)! Since I went a little over board the last time I visited Disneyland Paris (you can check out that haul here), I really didn’t get that much stuff this time (to be honest, there wasn’t that much more new merchandise since my last visit). Since I didn’t get that much at the parks (this is definitely one of my smallest hauls), I decided to also include the few things I got while I was in Paris (aka non-Disney items). Like I say in all my Disney Haul posts, a quick disclosure: since I am a Disneyland Paris annual passholder (that’s right, I’m currently an annual passholder to Disneyland Paris, Universal Orlando Resort, Disneyland AND Disney World), I get a pretty good discount on merchandise (20% off, woot woot!). Here’s my Disneyland Paris Christmas Haul: Continue reading

Christmastime at Disneyland Paris & Walt Disney Studios Park

January 11, 2017

Christmastime at Disneyland Paris
I know Christmas was three weeks ago (although it seems like it was yesterday) but I still wanted to share a few of my favorite photos from Christmastime at Disneyland Paris & Walt Disney Studios Park! Although I usually spend the holidays at Disney World, I decided to switch things up this year (well, technically “last” year) and spend Christmas and New Years at Disneyland Paris. Since I’ve experienced Disneyland during the holidays and Disney World during the holidays, it only made since to finally experience Christmastime at Disneyland Paris (and next year I might be experiencing Tokyo Disneyland during the holidays, so that’s fun!). Speaking of the Disney Parks, if you checked out my goals for 2017 post then you may recall that one of my goals for this year (and every year) is to travel more. Since I have a Disney Premier Passport (aka an annual pass to both Disneyland and Disney World), I travel to the Disney Parks quite frequently (in fact, I’ve been visiting the Disney Parks basically every other month since I first got my Disney Premier Passport in 2015). Even though I wasn’t planning on visiting Disney World again until March (I’ll be attending the first weekend of the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival), you all know how I LOVE spontaneous trips! Since the first ever Epcot International Festival of the Arts starts this weekend, I RANDOMLY decided to go and check it out! Yup that’s right, I’m heading to Disney World THIS weekend (talk about a great way to start off the new year!). Continue reading

Blind Box & Bag Roundup 41. (Disney Chocolate Surprise Eggs)

January 9, 2017

Disney Chocolate Surprise Eggs
Happy Monday and welcome to another edition of Blind Box & Bag Roundup (aka the first BB&BR post of the year, woot woot!). If you checked out my Finding Dory Surprise Egg opening or my Frozen Surprise Egg opening then you already know how much I LOVE chocolate surprise eggs (especially Disney themed ones!). There’s just something about chocolate surprise eggs that make me happy (I guess it’s the combination of yummy chocolate and a fun treat/toy inside!). I got these adorable Disney Chocolate Surprise Eggs as early Christmas stocking stuffers (and what awesome stocking stuffers they were) but I just got around to opening them last weekend (since I spent the holidays in Paris and I didn’t want to take them with me on my trip!). Don’t worry though, as you can see on the labeling they don’t go bad until 2018 so it’s all good! It’s so funny because even though I love opening (and eating) chocolate surprise eggs, they’ve always been pretty hard to find (if you checked out my last chocolate surprise eggs then you might recall that the only place I could ever find them, besides online, was Cracker Barrel), until now! I’m so excited because my local grocery store now sells these exact chocolate eggs at the checkout register (which is where my family got these!). Continue reading

Must Have: January 2017

January 6, 2017

Must Have Items
Happy Friday! It’s January, which means new month, new Must Have list! Although we are almost a week into the new year, this is only my second post. If you checked out my Goals for 2017 post, then you may already know that I’m working on a screenplay at the moment (I’m both nervous and excited at the same time). Although my screenplay is my number one priority this year, this blog is still my baby so of course I will be continuing to update it regularly (although I might only post twice a week instead of three times a week!). Words can’t decrblibe how much this blog means to me. The opportunities this blog has brought me is truly unbelievable! It’s literally helped me travel the world, explore things I never thought could be possible and discover new things about myself as a person. 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 January:  Continue reading

Happy New Year // Goals For 2017

January 4, 2017

Goals for 2017
As some of you can already tell from my various bucket lists, my 12 Months of Happiness series and my Must Have monthly series, I LOVE coming up with lists! It’s just so much fun jotting down ideas and making lists (and then crossing off all the things on the list!). Since I just got back from Paris and it’s the first week of 2017 (I still can’t believe how fast 2016 flew by), I thought today would be the perfect time to share with you all some of my goals for the new year. I’ve never been one for resolutions, I prefer setting goals for myself. That way, there’s less pressure if things don’t work out exactly how I planned (unlike resolutions, where I feel so stressed to achieve them!). As some of you might remember, last year I had three main goals which were to travel more, grow my record collection and have more “technology free days.” I definitely achieved my goal of traveling more! I went to Paris TWICE, Amsterdam (it was only for one day but it still counts), the Bahamas, Washington D.C., St. Louis, Indiana and California and Florida several times (to visit Disneyland and Disney World!). I’m also happy to share that my record collection grew a lot in 2016 (I know I always say I’m going to post more about my record collection/collecting records and I PROMISE I am soon. I actually have a lot of fun ideas planned for that) and I definitely had more “technology free” days this year (especially toward the end of the year)! Keeping with the theme of 2016, this year I came up with three goals I really hope to achieve in 2017:
