Disney (May, 2018)

May 21, 2018


For this Disney trip we decided to go to see the Flower and Garden Festival in Epcot. If you haven't been for this I can't recommend it enough. I mean, it's a festival of flowers. Enough said, really. Plus they serve extra treats and drinks that they don't carry when the festival isn't going on. 10/10! We ended up visiting three parks this time- Magic Kingdom (like duh), Hollywood Studios, and Epcot. We always get Park Hoppers so that we can come and go as we please between the parks.

Fast rides that make you want to be sick are my cup of tea 🍵


Disney at night = pure magic


Tank | Shorts | Ears (I usually wear ears that I purchased in the park a few years ago, but these are cheaper and far more comfortable! No head pain at all from them)

A sweet treat and LeFou's Brew at Gaston's Tavern! LeFou's Brew is a frozen apple juice drink/toasted marshmallow drink with a light and fluffy passion fruit & mango topping. SO. GOOD.

This was my first time being at Disney during the EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival and it did not disappoint!

For those of you who love more adventurous rides, Hollywood Studios is for you. The Tower of Terror and Rock 'n' Roller Coaster are definitely for the thrill seekers!

It rained probably 60% of the time but really who cares when you're in Disney World?

Spring Perfume

May 11, 2018



Spring is in full bloom and so is my garden! I can't believe how well my peonies (pictured!) and roses are doing...not going to lie, I'm impressed haha. I like to switch up my smells for each season- candles and perfumes :) For fall and winter I like warmer, foodsie smells (think vanilla, rum scents). Then for spring I adore florals, and summer I love beachy fragrances. Givenchy Live Irresistible Blossom Crush is the ultimate spring fragrance. It smells of rose, berries, and peonies. It's a sweet scent but the hint of cocoa bean helps to tone it down. Obsessed.
