An Afternoon at The Milwaukee Art Museum

November 27, 2017

Milwaukee Art Museum
Happy Monday everyone. I JUST got back home from my mini Midwest Road Trip, in partnership with Subaru! During my road trip I got to test out the new 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. Stay tuned for a full review SOON! I really love traveling and I had such a great time exploring the Midwest. Speaking of traveling, I’m heading to DC this weekend and then I’m off to NYC next week!

While on my Midwest road trip I got to visit so any fun new cities. The second stop on my road trip (since I’m counting Chicago as the first stop) was Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Although I visited Wisconsin a lot when I was a kid (mostly Wisconsin Dells), this was my first time in Milwaukee.

It’s a tradition of mine to always visit an art museum, or any museum, whenever I visit a new place. So obviously my first stop in Milwaukee was the Milwaukee Art Museum! I was super excited to visit the Milwaukee Art Museum because it’s one of the largest museums in the United States! 

Here are some of my favorite photos from the Milwaukee Art Museum:

Tuesdays At The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago

November 15, 2017

The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago
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:

Takashi Murakami: The Octopus Eats its Own Leg Exhibit

Takashi Murakami: The Octopus Eats its Own Leg
Happy Monday everyone! Is it just me or does it feel like summer is going by super fast (which is a-ok with me since it’s my least favorite season!)? Last weekend was jammed pack with so much exciting news! First, there’s going to be so many awesome chances coming to the Disney Parks (I just LOVE D23 weekend!) I can’t wait for all the new attractions and all of the upcoming Disney and Pixar films. Also, have you heard the news that the 13th Doctor is going to a woman (finally!). I’m super excited about it and I can’t wait to see Jodie Whittaker in action! Speaking about TV shows, can we talk about last night’s Game of Thrones!?! Definitely worth the wait. Okay, enough chit chat, now on to the regularly scheduled blog post. I talked about this in my Why I Love Living in Chicago post but one of my favorite things about Chicago is the fact that not only do a plethora of world-class museums call Chicago home but a lot of them offer FREE admission/discount days. Since the Museum of Contemporary Art offers free admission (to Illinois residents) every Tuesday, I like to spend my Tuesday afternoons there exploring all the new exhibits and artwork. Ever since the Takashi Murakami: The Octopus Eats its Own Leg Exhibit opened at MCA last month I’ve been meaning to go by and see it, so I thought “hey, there’s no time like the present!”  Continue reading

Spending the Afternoon at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, France

June 12, 2017

Musée d'Orsay
You guys, I’m SO excited because I FINALLY got an external hard drive (I know, took me long enough!). In case you couldn’t tell, I take a lot of pictures, especially when I’m traveling. In fact, I have so many photos and different memory cards from different trips that I’ve run out of storage space on my Macbook Air so I’ve been having to upload all my photos to my iMac and its been one big crazy mess (first world problems I know!). Luckily with the external hard drive I finally have one place to store all my photos and organize all of my photos from past trips that I’ve yet to blog out. Speaking of past trips, I know I’ve blogged a little bit about my two trips to Paris last spring and winter (like my visit(s) to Disneyland Paris, exploring the Louvre and Catacombs of Paris, one of my favorite spots to view the Eiffel Tower from and my stay at the Dream Castle Hotel) but I still have a few more Paris posts to share with you all. Today I wanted to share some of my favorite photos from my afternoon at the Musée d’Orsay! In case you couldn’t tell from my various art museums and art exhibits posts, I LOVE a good art museum so obviously visiting the Musée d’Orsay was high on my Paris bucket list! Continue reading

Monday’s Music 29 // Ultimate Jogging Playlist

June 5, 2017

Happy Monday and welcome to another edition of Monday’s Music! It’s been forever since I’ve shared a Monday’s Music playlist so I thought “hey, there’s no time like the present!”. I always have such a blast sharing different playlists (I think my all-time favorites were my Disney Playlists) and hearing/reading about some of your favorite songs as well (don’t forget to comment down below some of your favorite workout tunes!). It’s such a fun way to discover new music! I was going through a few of my older Monday’s Music playlists and realized that around this time last year I shared my 2016 workout playlist. Although I still do listen to a lot of those songs (and they’re still on my jogging/workout playlist), I’ve updated that playlist quite a bit since then. Here are some of my favorite “current” (meaning these songs, with the expectation of the Hamilton soundtrack, were released this year) workout songs:Ultimate Jogging Workout Playlist Continue reading
