Happy Monday (and Memorial Day) everyone! I don’t know if you’ve noticed it but lately I’ve found myself slacking a little bit when it comes to posting regularly (whoops!). I’ve been a little stressed lately and I feel like there’s just so much on my plate right now (but hey, no complaints here! I actually prefer being super busy/having a jam packed schedule). I’ve talked about this a few times on the blog before but in case you’re new here, I’m currently in the process of writing a screenplay and it’s definitely time consuming. Although this screenplay is super important to me, I don’t want this blog to have to take a backseat to it. So, I’m challenging myself to get back to my old blogging schedule (new posts every Monday, Wednesday and Friday) while still making the time to work on finishing my screenplay. Although writing is my number one passion (and I’m so grateful to have found a way to make a living off of it), having to constantly come up with fresh ideas, execute them, edit (and edit some more) and meet numerous deadlines can get a little stressful. So I thought to myself, “What’s the best kind of stress reliever?’. Frozen Yogurt, duh!

You guys, last night I did something a little crazy. Okay, let me backtrack a little. As many of you know (it’s pretty obvious if you spend more than .0001 seconds on my blog or Instagram), I LOVE Disney. No seriously, I know a lot of people love Disney but I LOVE Disney. In fact, for the past two years (since May 2015) I’ve been a Disney Premier Passport Holder (meaning I have annual passes for BOTH Disneyland and Disney World) and in 2016 I became a Disneyland Paris annual passholder (I’ve visited Disneyland Paris twice so far!). So basically I visit the Disney Parks every two or three months (which is crazy since I live in Chicago/no where near any of the Disney Parks!). Now back to the crazy part. Last night I was searching through flights (something I often do) and I found an unbelievable price on a flight to Orlando in June. So, even though I’m already heading to Disney World in August, I booked another trip for June (two trips within a month of each other? Talk about a Disney filled summer!). I am SO excited because that means I get to explore Pandora – The World of Avatar (the newest addition to Animal Kingdom) two months earlier than expected. To celebrate my last-minute Disney trip, I decided to have a little Disney movie marathon and of course no movie marathon is complete with MILKA OREO Chocolate Candy!

7 Gym Bag Essentials for Every Woman

7 Gym Bag Essentials for Every Woman
When it comes to staying active, I think I’ve finally found a routine that works best with my busy schedule (it sure did take me long enough). For now, my workout routine consists of daily (or every other day, since the weather has been a little crazy lately) jogging (or biking), yoga classes (when I have the time) and weekend visits to the gym. Since I’m constantly on the go (between work and traveling), I try to get in as many yoga classes and “gym days” as I can (since they’re harder to factor into my schedule than a simple jog or bike ride!). This past weekend I decided to get in some much needed gym time so today, I decided that it would be fun to share a few of my favorite gym bag musts! Here are the seven gym bag essentials that every gym-goer should keep in her gym bag at any given time (ladies, I’m pretty sure we can all agree on number seven!).

As some of you may already know, for the past year and a half I’ve been on a mission to live a healthier lifestyle. I decreased my fast food intake (which trust me, was super hard), I starting doing yoga (although it’s been a month since I last attended a class, whoops) and I even joined a gym. I also like to go on daily jogs (and sometimes bike rides now that the weather is nicer) with my dog Loki. Speaking of Loki, I’ve also been on a mission this past year to make sure he’s living a healthy lifestyle as well! Let’s face it, all good dog owners want to keep their dogs healthy. We love our dogs, and we want them to be as healthy and happy as possible. Just like it’s important that we have healthy diets and eat good foods, the same goes for our furry friends! Ever since Loki made the transition from puppy food to adult food a while ago, I’ve been on the lookout for good quality hard food to fed him. After a few hits and misses, I recently switched Loki’s food to CANIDAE® Under The Sun® and man, does he (and I) LOVE it! Continue reading

The New Potbelly App + Trying The New Turkey Fresco Sandwich

Happy Wednesday! I can’t believe we’re halfway through another week? I swear April is just flying by, which is a-okay in my book since that means there’s only 12 days left until my birthday (hooray!). I can’t wait for my birthday to finally get here since I’ve been craving birthday cake for the past two weeks now. Speaking of cravings, have you ever just woke up one day and randomly starting craving a certain kind of food? I swear it happens to me at least once a week! One minute it’s crepes (I can’t believe that this time last year I was heading to Paris for the first time ever) and then it’s violet lemonade (gosh, I miss the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival so much!). Well, last weekend I woke up with a sudden craving for my favorite one stop sandwich shop: Potbelly Continue reading
