̶A̶d̶v̶e̶n̶t̶u̶r̶e̶ Denver Is Out There: Part Un

October 15, 2018


Or rather, this post should be more aptly titled, "Selfies, or it didn't happen." Or "How to be Basic: Solo Edition." Or "Everything I Photographed, I Learned From Instagram." I can keep going...

Mostly it's about how to spend a Denver morning by yourself. Hint: it involves avocado toast and beer. Beer? Yes, beer - because, were you even listening when I said "Denver"? (Fun fact: Denver brews more beer than any other city!) But let's backpedal here a minute. Why were you in Denver, Shell? Who was watching the baby? And more importantly, how much did you pack? (If you followed my Instagram posts leading up to my Disney trip, you will fully appreciate that reference.) Anyway, I was recently in the mile high city for my brother's wedding, and took full advantage of the quick trip while Barry was on baby duty (flying with a 9 month old? I'm not ready for that just yet). I landed a day before the wedding, so I had a little bit of time to do some exploring before showtime. 

Style & the City

October 12, 2018


I've always been such a Sex & the City fan. I've seen all the seasons, own both movies, and I pretty much worship Carrie Bradshaw & her impeccable style. When I have a closet that rivals hers, complete with a floor-to-ceiling shelf full of designer shoes, I'll know I've made it, but I'm still playing little league over here, with my tiny shared closet and TJ Maxx finds - but that doesn't stop me from filling it with pieces that bring me happiness & a little SATC flair!

And since it's October, the month of dressing up as other characters, what better time to showcase some SATC style? I can identify with all of the characters on some level, and while Carrie Bradshaw is my style muse, I wanted to pay homage to 2 of my other favorite characters, Charlotte & Samantha (sorry, Miranda)!

Hey Mickey!

It's that time of year again - one of my favorite fall (Instagram) traditions is participating in the Fall Into Disney Style Challenge. This is the 3rd year for the challenge, and hopefully the first time I might make it all the way through (I'll be happy if I make it through 2/3 of the prompts)! The rules are simple: there are none! You can get as creative as you want with the prompts and interpret them as you see fit (& don't forget to tag your photos with #fallintodisneystyle!)

I love seeing everyone's photos for this challenge, and it's just so much fun to participate in. If you're like me and don't live anywhere near the parks, this is a great way to feel that magic all month long.

Big Bow Ears: Ears by Ray | Bag: Yours Truly! | Invitation Itinerary: Jasmine Victoria
Half the fun (for me) of a Disney trip is the months of planning that goes into it. My type A personality delights in typing itineraries & planning outfits. Trip planning builds anticipation and gives me something to look forward to & something to work towards. So naturally, every time I have an upcoming trip (15 days left!!!), the intense  planning must commence!

There are so many ways to get excited for a vacation: from everything to researching your destination to DIYing some magical accessories, here's my list of the top 10 11 ways to make it through that castle countdown.

A Trip Through The Hundred Acre Wood

August 28, 2018


Winnie-the-Pooh has always been ingrained in my childhood. Growing up, I had a collection of miniature books featuring all the classic Pooh characters, as well as the beloved hardcopy seen towards the end of this post. I had a Pooh plush as a kid, that I have since passed on to my own daughter, Lilly (I hope she loves him as much as I did). I had several Pooh VHS tapes, and I remember watching Welcome To Pooh Corner on Disney channel, back when they ran shows like Duck Tales & Gummi Bears. So when I heard there was a Pooh exhibit, I knew I had to check it out.
