Come What May | Shopping for Vinyl Records at Barnes & Noble

November 12, 2018

Moulin Rouge Soundtrack Vinyl Record
It’s been SO long since I’ve shared a Vinyl Hunt on the blog and honestly, it’s because I haven’t bought a record in some time. Every time I’ve gone to the thrift store lately, I just haven’t been able to find anything worth buying. (Well, recrod wise anyway). And vinyls have gotta WAY to expensive to buy “new”/from regular stores.

Since I had a 10% off Barens and Noble coupon and a couple of bucks on an old gift card I never used, I thought “hey, why not try vinyl hunting this weekend?”. So that’s exactly what I did! I’m not going to lie, I was super impressed by the vinyl selection at Barnes & Noble! They had way more records than I thought they’d have!

(And I even found the vinyl soundtrack of my FAVORITE movie)!

Four Cold-Weather Hacks for Keeping Warm

November 9, 2018

Chicago during fall and winter
It’s that time of year again. You know, the one where the sun sets before 5pm. No really, yesterday here in Chicago the sun set at 4:45pm! And then today, for like 15 minutes, it snowed! SNOWED! The first snow of the season. I guess fall and winter really is upon us!

(Loki’s super happy though, he loves snow and so do I!).

I love Chicago with all my heart, cold weather and all! I grew up here and so over the years I’ve become used to the fall and winter weather. Personally, I prefer the cold weather. Crazy right? (You all know about my dislike for summer, team cold weather all the way!). But I know everyone isn’t like me and they’d prefer to stay warm all year round.

Here’s four simple hacks for staying warm during the fall and winter:

Happy 90th Birthday Mickey Mouse

November 3, 2018

Disney Mickey Mouse Collector Mini Figures Bling Bag
Welcome to a special Blind Box & Bag Roundup dedicated to my favorite little rodent! I can’t believe the legend himself, Mickey Mouse, is turning 90 this month. Disney and Mickey had such a huge impact on both my childhood and adulthood. And for that, Mickey will always have a special place in my heart!

Through the years Mickey has had lots of iconic looks and I loved that they represented all of the phrases of Mickey in blind bag form! I was super excited when I saw these at Target and I’ve been waiting for the perfect moment to finally open them. (And what’s more perfect than Mickey’s birthday month!).

Speaking of Mickey, don’t forget to tune into Mickey’s 90th Spectacular, a dazzling two-hour primetime event on ABC on November 4th! Continue reading

Halloween Meets Christmas | Thrifting Adventures

October 26, 2018

Vintage Star Wars Darth Vader Halloween Decor
October, my favorite time of year! I love this time of year because the holiday’s are truly in effect! Halloween is right around the corner, Thanksgiving isn’t to far away and Christmas is almost within arms reach. Yup, it really is the BEST time of year!

To celebrate the season, I decided to hit up Goodwill this past weekend to see if I could find some cool vintage Halloween and Christmas decor! And since it’s been a hot minute since I updated my  “Thrifting Adventures” series, I thought why not kill two birds will one stone.

(But seriously, please don’t actually try and kill birds with stones. It’s inhumane! Who even coined that phrase?).

Here’s what I found at Goodwill:
