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!

And the Oscar Goes To…[2019 Oscar Predictions]

February 23, 2019


Watching the Academy Awards is usually something I look forward to doing every year. I even used to count down the days until Oscar season. But for some reason, this year I haven’t. Maybe it’s because I’ve been super busy lately but I honestly forgot the Oscars were even happening this weekend. Whoops.

Regardless, sharing my Oscar predictions has been a tradition here on the blog since 2014 and I’m all about keeping up with traditions!

Here are my predictions for the 91th Academy Awards!

Come What May | Shopping for Vinyl Records at Barnes & Noble

November 12, 2018

Moulin Rouge Soundtrack Vinyl Record
It’s been SO long since I’ve shared a Vinyl Hunt on the blog and honestly, it’s because I haven’t bought a record in some time. Every time I’ve gone to the thrift store lately, I just haven’t been able to find anything worth buying. (Well, recrod wise anyway). And vinyls have gotta WAY to expensive to buy “new”/from regular stores.

Since I had a 10% off Barens and Noble coupon and a couple of bucks on an old gift card I never used, I thought “hey, why not try vinyl hunting this weekend?”. So that’s exactly what I did! I’m not going to lie, I was super impressed by the vinyl selection at Barnes & Noble! They had way more records than I thought they’d have!

(And I even found the vinyl soundtrack of my FAVORITE movie)!

Exploring Graffiti Alley in Toronto, Ontario | Canada

Graffiti Alley in Toronto, Ontario
It’s official, I LOVE Canada! Even though I only spent a week there, I feel like I got to see SO much of Toronto. I’m telling you, if I ever decided to move to another country, Canada is at the top of my list. 

(I mean, Canada’s healthcare system alone is reason enough to move there/become a citizen!).

I did a lot of research on “Things to do in Toronto” before my trip and one of the places I knew I had to visit was Graffiti Alley. Graffiti Alley is essentially exactly what it sounds like. It’s a collection of long alleyways where you can view graffiti from various artists. 

And you all know how much I LOVE street art.
