🎶 “What is this feeling. So sudden and new? I felt the moment I laid eyes on you!”. 🎶
I vividly remember that bright summer day back in 2006 when I first truly feel in love with Broadway. It was a Wednesday and I was getting ready to see my first ever Broadway show: Wicked. Ever since I was a kid I had a special connection to The Wizard of Oz. And after watching Idina Menzel’s speculator 2004 Tony’s performance, I knew I HAD to see Wicked as soon as it opened in Chicago.
12 years later and my love for the theatre has only grown stronger. Even though Wicked was the first Broadway musical I saw, my love for Broadway started much earlier. I guess you could say I got my love of Broadway from my mom. Back when she lived in London (which is where my older sister was born) my mom saw the Original West End productions of Les Misérables and Cats.
How lucky is she?!
Happy Monday and welcome to a new series here on the blog that I like to call “Thrifting Adventures!”. Basically, this series will be all about my different experiences while I’m out exploring different thrift shops and vintage stores here in Chicago. (And possibly other cities as well).
This series is sort of similar to my vinyl hunting posts (I know, it’s been forever since I’ve posted about my vinyl hunting journey) but more so focused on the things that I find at different thrift stores.
Here’s some of the awesome finds I found on my latest Thrifting Adventure:
Hey! I know I’ve been super inconsistent when it comes to blogging lately, and I’m not here to give excuses, but I just wanted to check in and give you guys a little update. So basically, I’ve been SUPER unmotivated lately. It is what it is. I have so many fun blog post ideas in my head, but whenever I go to sit down and write, I just can’t.
My goal for this month, and the summer, is to get back to my regular blogging schedule. (AKA new posts every Monday, Wednesday and Friday). I still have a lot of Disney Cruise posts to share with you guys. (It’s crazy to think that that cruise was back in January. I can’t wait until my next Disney Cruise in August!).
Also, can we just talk about that photo for a second. Who doesn’t love Shack Shake?!
Happy Friday everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve done a “haul post,” and since I recently picked up a couple of random things at Five Below, I thought it would be fun to share them with you all today. Random side note: any fellow RuPaul’s Drag Race fans out there? Can we PLEASE talk about yesterdays #AllStars3 finale? Sigh… (don’t get me wrong I really like Trixie but my girl Shangela deserved that crown!).
Here’s what I got at Five Below:
It’s that time of year again: The Oscars! If you’ve been reading this blog for a while then you already know that I look forward to the The Oscars each year. 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!).
Unfortunately, this is the first time in TEN years that I haven’t completed my goal of seeing every ‘Best Picture’ Oscar nominated film. But I have seen most of them (that counts for something, right?). For the past four years I’ve been able to correctly predict (almost) EVERY major Oscar win (I only got one prediction wrong back in 2015 and one wrong in 2017) so here’s hoping for another year of successful predictions.
Here are my predictions for the 90th Academy Awards:
