Exploring The Philadelphia Museum of Art

June 7, 2019

Philadelphia Museum of ArtFunny story…remember when I shared THIS post back in December about visiting Philadelphia during the holidays? In that post I said that I would be doing a separate post all about my trip to The Philadelphia Museum of Art. Well, it looks like I never did it (insert shocked emoji face). I honestly didn’t even realize it until I was deleting photos from my camera last weekend and went “Did I ever even share these photos on the blog?”. Yikes.

Since I’m heading to Philly next weekend, I thought I might as well (finally) share more about my visit to The Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Just a little preface, neither of the two exhibitions I’m going to be highlighting are still ongoing. They both closed back in March. BUT they were both amazing and definitely still worth sharing! The two exhibitions I’m going to talking about today are the Fabulous Fashion: From Dior’s New Look to Now and Little Ladies: Victorian Fashion Dolls and the Feminine Ideal exhibits.

Now onto the post!

Bits and Pieces: 2019 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival

June 3, 2019

2019 Epcot International Flower & Garden FestivalIt’s officially the last day of the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival! Womp womp. So I thought today would be the perfect time to finally share a little recap about my trip to this years festival. I’ll be breaking up this post into three main categories: food, topiaries and random photos. 

As you all know, or might not know, the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival is my FAVORITE Epcot festival. Well, at least it used to be. I’m not going to lie, this year left me feeling a little underwhelmed. Dare I say that the Epcot International Festival of the Arts has officially taken the spot of my favorite Epcot festival?!  

Plot twist.

Bits and Pieces: A Weekend in Washington, D.C.

May 24, 2019

Bethesda Maryland
Two posts in ONE week?! Say whhhaaaat? Today, I wanted to share a few (no really, I only took a handful) of the photos I took while in DC last weekend (Friday & Saturday). Even though technically the photo above was taken in Maryland, not DC, but let’s just ignore that. 

I’m so happy to be back in the swing of consistent blogging. (Yay me!). I’m still a little behind on some Disney Cruise and other travel related posts, but I’m trying to take things one day at a time. (Or one post at a time!).

Here’s a few snapshots from my weekend in DC:

Cupcake Showdown: Georgetown Cupcake vs Sprinkles Cupcakes

May 20, 2019

Georgetown Cupcake Washington DCHappy Monday! I just got back from a brief trip to Washington, D.C. and while I was going through some of the photos I took (for a Bits and Pieces post) I noticed 90% of the photos were food related. Not only that, most of them were cupcake related! While I was in DC I stopped by both Georgetown Cupcake and Sprinkles Cupcakes (within an hour of each other oddly enough) so I thought it would be fun to do a little “Cupcake Showdown” post.

Warning, I am NOT a big “sweets person” (although cupcakes are probably my favorite dessert) so my opinion might be slightly different from someone who is a cupcake enthusiastic. BUTsince I have no allegiance to or preference of either cupcake shop, I think I can successfully offer a non-bias opinion.

I will rate each cupcake on the following: taste “cake”, taste “icing”, location, price, flavor versatility, “buzz”/it factor and presentation.

The cupcake shop with the most points out of 7 WINS!
