Is it just me or is getting mail one of the best feelings in the world?! Packages, letters, catalogs, heck even junk mail, I love it all! Last week I got a special package in the mail: a Japan Candy Box! Japan Candy Box is a Japanese Candy Subscription Box filled with hand-picked quirky Japanese sweets & snacks!
I’m a huge fan of all of things kawaii and that includes food! I love getting to try out different types of snacks from around the globe. If you’re like me and love tasting out new snacks, Japan Candy Box is well worth the $18+/month (with free WORLDWIDE shipping!).
Here’s what was in my Japan Candy Box:
Along with the Disney Parks and Target, I’d definitely have to say that museums are one of my “happy places!” I don’t know what it is but I could spend hours roaming the halls of any given museum. It doesn’t matter if it’s an art, history or science museum, I love them all. I’m so fortunate to have grown up (and still live in) in Chicago, a city filled with dozens upon dozens of amazing museums.
As I’ve mentioned on the blog countless times, plenty of Chicago museums offer free days to Illinois residents. One of those being the Museum of Contemporary Art, which offers free admission on Tuesdays. Thus making “Tuesdays At The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago” a regular thing for me!
There have been so many new exhibits added since my last visit to The MCA, to see the Takashi Murakami: The Octopus Eats its Own Leg Exhibit. That’s what I love about museums, no matter how many times you visit them, there’s always something new to see.
Here’s a few of my favorite photos from my visit to The Museum of Contemporary Art:
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
No really, I’m serious. Chicago is already starting to transform into a Christmasy Winter Wonderland. In fact, next Friday is the 104th Anniversary of the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. Then the following day is the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival! I LOVE the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival. Attending the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival is one of my favorite holiday traditions. Speaking of holiday traditions, one of my favorite ways to prep for the holidays is:
Picking out new Christmas wrapping paper!
Admit it: binge-watching is now a way of life and thanks to Netflix, all of our favorite TV shows (well most of them anyway) are conveniently located in one place! I don’t know about you but one of my favorite ways to spend the weekends is curling up in bed, cuddling with my dog Loki and watching Netflix. Not only is it fun to discover new shows on Netflix but it’s always fun re-watching some of my old favorites (I think I’ve seen every episode of Friends 20+ times and they never get old to me!).
Ever since Daylight Savings happened it’s been getting dark so much earlier and with the cold weather we’ve been experiencing here in Chicago, I haven’t really felt like going outside much. I’ve basically been spending most of my time at my house in my home office working on my screenplay and when I do have a little down time, I turn to my good buddy Netflix.
Here are some of my favorite shows to watch on Netflix:
Happy Friday. It’s November, which means new month, new Must Have list! You guys, it’s November which basically means the holiday season has officially begun (am I right?). If you follow me on Instagram (shameless plug) then you may have seen on my Instagram stories that I’ve already put up my Christmas tree (what can I say, I LOVE Christmas). I can’t wait to start decorating the rest of my house for the holidays! Like with all of my Monthly Must Have lists, these are not necessarily items that I “need,” it’s just a list of things I currently have my eye on.
Here are my Must Haves for November:
