And the Oscar Goes To…[2017 Oscar Predictions]

February 23, 2017

Oscars 2017 Best Picture Nominations
Next to Christmas and my birthday, Oscar night is one of my FAVORITE days of the year (no seriously, I LOVE the Oscars)! 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!) I’m happy to say that this year marks the NINTH straight year that I’ve completed my goal of seeing every Best Picture Oscar nominated film (if you can’t already tell, I’m a huge film buff!). For the past three years here on the blog, I’ve been able to correctly predict (almost) EVERY major Oscar win (I only got one prediction wrong back in 2015) so here’s hoping for another year of successful predictions. Here are my predictions for the 89th Academy Awards: Continue reading

Happy New Year // Goals For 2017

January 4, 2017

Goals for 2017
As some of you can already tell from my various bucket lists, my 12 Months of Happiness series and my Must Have monthly series, I LOVE coming up with lists! It’s just so much fun jotting down ideas and making lists (and then crossing off all the things on the list!). Since I just got back from Paris and it’s the first week of 2017 (I still can’t believe how fast 2016 flew by), I thought today would be the perfect time to share with you all some of my goals for the new year. I’ve never been one for resolutions, I prefer setting goals for myself. That way, there’s less pressure if things don’t work out exactly how I planned (unlike resolutions, where I feel so stressed to achieve them!). As some of you might remember, last year I had three main goals which were to travel more, grow my record collection and have more “technology free days.” I definitely achieved my goal of traveling more! I went to Paris TWICE, Amsterdam (it was only for one day but it still counts), the Bahamas, Washington D.C., St. Louis, Indiana and California and Florida several times (to visit Disneyland and Disney World!). I’m also happy to share that my record collection grew a lot in 2016 (I know I always say I’m going to post more about my record collection/collecting records and I PROMISE I am soon. I actually have a lot of fun ideas planned for that) and I definitely had more “technology free” days this year (especially toward the end of the year)! Keeping with the theme of 2016, this year I came up with three goals I really hope to achieve in 2017:

GoCustomized Beauty and the Beast iPad Case

September 20, 2016

Beauty and the Beast iPad case
If you follow me on Instagram, then you may remember that I got a new rose gold iPad Pro (#TreatYoSelf) last month! I’ve been wanting to upgrade to an iPad Pro for the longest time (my sister gave me her old iPad 2 back when I was in college but I’ve never had an iPad of my own) so I decided to finally take the plunge! All I can say is WOW, I love the connivence of having an iPad. Since I travel so much and often have to work while on-the-go, I like that I now have the option of leaving my computer at home. My iPad Pro is literally like a mini computer, especially since I have an attachable wireless keyboard case! Speaking of iPad cases, last week I got the most ADORABLE custom Beauty and the Beast iPad case from GoCustomized! If you’re in the market for a new tech case, I highly suggest GoCustomized! GoCustomized offers personalised phone cases, iPad cases and iPod cases! Continue reading

Alex and Ani Disney Bracelet Collection

Alex and Ani Disney Bracelet Collection
If you’ve been following my monthly Disney Parks Hauls, than you may already know about my latest obsession: Alex and Ani Disney bracelets. It’s funny because I am NOT a jewelry person but for some reason, I love these bracelets (then again, it’s hard for me not to love anything Disney related). I’ve been wanting to share more about my many collections (like Disney mugs, Disney plushies, Funko’s, Disney pins, etc) here on the blog so I thought “why not start off with one of my newer collections?” Even though I only bought my first Alex and Ani Disney bracelet a little under a year ago, I’ve already grown quite a collection of them (nine so far!). Aside from how cute they are, I think my favorite thing about Alex and Ani is that the brand is all about spreading positive energy (and if you’ve been following this blog and my 12 Months of Happiness series for awhile, than you know I’m all about spreading positive energy too!).  Continue reading

Disney Store Haul: March 2016

March 16, 2016

Disney Store HaulHappy Wednesday! It’s a new month, which means it’s time for a new Disney Haul! Sadly, this month marked the end of my monthly Disney trips (insert crying emoj!). That’s right, March was the first month since August 2015 that I didn’t visit either Disneyland or Disney World. BUT, on the bright side, in LESS THAN A MONTH (I leave April 15th) I’ll be headed to Disneyland Paris to celebrate my 24th birthday (which is April 17th aka the BEST DAY EVER!). Then, it’s back to Disney World in May for the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. Speaking of international Disney Parks trips, I’m currently in the process of planning/booking my Tokyo Disneyland trip (visiting Tokyo Disneyland would seriously be a dream come true so fingers crossed everything works out/goes according to plan!). Since I had such a blast sharing my last Disney Store Haul in January (and since I don’t have a Disney Parks Haul to share since I didn’t visit the parks this month), for this month’s Disney Haul I decided to share another Disney Store Haul (since I shop there so often!). Here’s my March Disney Store haul: Continue reading
