Thanksgiving TAG

November 21, 2018

Iconic Chicago Theatre
Since tomorrow’s Thanksgiving, I thought today would be the perfect day to do a Thanksgiving Tag. Poor Thanksgiving, the “second thought” holiday. It seems like Thanksgiving is that awkward middle child and Halloween and Christmas are the favored younger and older siblings. (Let’s be honest, once Halloween passes it’s all about Christmas. And I’m definitely guilty of that!).

But today I wanted to give Thanksgiving the spotlight! And since I’ve done Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Halloween Tags in the past, it seems only right to add a Thanksgiving Tag into the mix. Man, I can already taste my grandma’s mac and cheese and sweet potato pies. Can it be tomorrow already?!

Onto the tag:

2018 Macy's Holiday Windows on State Street in Chicago
It’s beginning to look at lot like Christmas here in Chicago! Ah, I’m so excited. My favorite time of the year is officially underway. Earlier this month Macy’s debuted this years holiday windows and I finally got around to checking them out for myself!

It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of adorable window displays (especially holiday themed ones). If you’re a big fan of holiday windows displays like me, make sure to check out these adorable Disneyland Paris holiday windows and this amazing Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs holiday window display from my trip to NYC last year!

But seriously, does it get more festive than this?

Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts LEGO Minifigures

November 17, 2018

Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts LEGO Minifigures
In honor of the latest Fantastic Beasts film: Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald opening in theaters this weekend, I thought today would be the perfect day to open up my Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts LEGO Minifigures! I’ll be honest with you guys, oddly enough, I have no desire to see The Crimes of Grindelwald. (And from what the critics have been saying, I might as well save my money anyway!).

I’ll forever be a HUGE Harry Potter fan (heck, HP defined my childhood), but The Crimes of Grindelwald just doesn’t look like my cup of tea. I’ll definitely watch it when it comes out on DVD, but I’m not paying those crazy movie theater prices to see it. (Sorry not sorry).

Any who, onto the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts LEGO Minifigures! Continue reading

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

This post is sponsored by Cuddl Duds but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.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:
