    Why I Keep Coming Back to Disney

    I get the question a lot about why I go to Disney so much especially when I don’t have kids. The thing that non-Disney fans or people who haven’t been in a long time (or ever) don’t get is that every trip is different — and not because the parks are always changing. Every trip means something and all are special for their own reasons. The first time I came to Disney World, I was a child, wide-eyed and full of wonder. Imagination was not far from my grasp because I lived in that land every day. The characters and world I was immersed in was one that felt like…

    Why We Eloped

    I guess I should start off by saying we didn’t really elope. The definition of eloping is “running away secretly in order to get married” and we were definitely not secretive about it. It was more a wedding that was just the two of us and no one else.  I know some people are shocked that we didn’t go with the big, over the top, party all night, fairytale wedding because honestly that is me and what I have always wanted. However, once we started planning it was causing me more stress than excitement. All my best friends and family lived 2000 miles away from me and couldn’t do normal…

    All About That Skincare Life

    Skincare has always been a part of my life. I grew up in a southern house that made it very clear, eye cream was just as important as our nightly prayers. However, my knowledge and want for great skin eventually succumbed to the lethargic college years. You know– the never washing or even thinking about a moisturizer anymore because I am doing good to make it to my 8am class. There were many a morning I woke up with smeared mascara and what makeup I had left on my face… real classy. In the morning, I would “clean” my skin by running a cotton pad and toner over my face…

    How to Stay Motivated to Workout

      Hey Happy Hour Gang!!! In my journey of being healthy, the biggest blog requests I get are about what I eat and what exercise I do. My biggest tip I will tell everyone and anyone is just because something works for me, doesn’t mean it is going to work for you. A journey to living your best life is to find out what sprinkles your donut… or dresses your salad… ha, okay that is healthier. A workout I enjoy may be a nightmare for someone else. I figured the best way to help y’all is not to tell you WHAT I do to workout that works for me but…

    Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Review

    Happy Tuesday, friends! Thank you for all the sweet words from last weeks more personal post. If you missed it, you can check it out here. Now back to our regularly scheduled posts of makeup and fashion! When I find a makeup product I love, I usually get in a little rut. It’s all I will wear without even looking for others that could possibly be better than what I am using. Why mess with a good thing, amiright? Luckily, a couple weeks ago I received Laura Mercier’s new Flawless Fusion foundation and concealer to try out. When I get PR packages or free products in the mail I always…

    Fall Down Seven, Stand up Eight

    Saturday night I went to see the new Cirque Du Soleil ice show, Crystal, with my friend Christina. It’s not the first time I have seen the stunt defying group and I’m sure it won’t be the last. It was far different than any of their other performances I have seen but nonetheless inspiring. It revolves around a young girl named Crystal and her struggle of not feeling like she fits anywhere. After an argument with her parents she races outside to skate her feelings away when suddenly the ice cracks and she falls into the water. There are many interpretations of what is happening to Crystal during this part.…

    Somebunny Loves You

    Happy Easter, everyone!!!   I always say that fall is my favorite season until spring rolls around and I start to second guess myself. I am all for chilly, sunshine weather that you can be in with just a cardigan. After all, April does have the perfect date. (Anyone know what movie I am talking about?!) Not much to report except that I GRADUATED!!!!!!!!! I finally finished! (WHERE ARE MY CONFETTI CANNONS?!) I will save my thoughts on all that for a different post. Since taking my last final, I have been in a mix of celebrating and relaxation. Sleeping in has never felt so good. I really don’t think…

    How to do Disney in One Day

    Aside from makeup, the majority of the questions I get are about Disney. When is the best time to visit? What is your Favorite Resort? What are the best places to make reservations? Are certain activities worth it? Etc. My love for Disney is what some would call obsessive but I like to think of it more as an intense infatuation. Ha. Whatever you call it, it drives me to Disney parks at least 5 times a year, all in varying lengths of stay. I have been known to disappear to Disney for more than a week but also known to take spontaneous 24 hour whirlwind trips. While normally I…

    Brush Must Haves

    If y’all have not jumped on the Wet Brush bandwagon, you need to. I have been using these brushes for over a year now, and they are life changing. The fact that I can easily brush through my wet hair with a brush and not struggle with a comb is the best. (This is really great too if you have little girls with tender heads!) Even though I have used the original Wet Brush for a while, I just started using their shine brush. (Yes, two brushes.) YALLLLLLL…IT GIVES ME LIFE!!!!!!!!! The Shine Brush is for when your hair is dry but it is just as amazing. The Mongolian Boar…

    The Groundhog Was Right

    I very rarely believe that pesky little groundhog when he sees or does not see his shadow. Mostly because I don’t think he has the best track record of being correct. However, this year he has hit the nail on the head with six more weeks of winter. We have had unusually cold temps for this time of year and a few days of freak snow. Spring is WAY more my jam but until then we can at least still get some more sweater wearing days in. This has been my favorite sweater this season and NOT because it is pink, but because of how warm and comfortable it is. So if you’re…
