April Favorites

Happy Monday! I’ve been doing quite a bit of online shopping lately in preparation for our upcoming trip (sorry but not sorry, husband) and there are such great products and sales right now. I compiled some of my favorite products. The Coco Mademoiselle is my current favorite scent right now. I recently bought a new bottle and forgot how wonderful it is! It’s so light and fresh—I can’t get enough.

I hope you enjoy some of these picks! Have a fantastic week.

Is there anything better than Harry Potter? Nope. There’s not. I had been dreaming of this day since I was basically 13 when I said, “There needs to be a Harry Potter theme park.” I’m basically taking 80% of the credit with 0% of the compensation. Back to our days at the park! They were two perfect, calorie-filled days.

My sweet mother-in-law decided that we needed a girls’ trip and we were quick to say yes! We had all been dying to visit the park together and compare our previous Butterbeer experiences. Once we walked in to the park, we headed straight for the Harry Potter portion. We had just had a quick breakfast, but needed to cap it off with a glass of Butterbeer deliciousness. Little did we know that it would be the first of three glasses for the day!

We spent most of our time planning our meals and treats, but we ended up having the following top 5 attractions. Some of them are classic, but some were new favorites!

  1. Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey (the ride inside the castle facade)
  2. Flight of the Hippogriff!
  3. Revenge of the Mummy Ride (we literally rode this 7 times)
  4. The Studio Tour (such a classic!)
  5. The Animal Actor’s show (don’t miss this! It’s truly hilarious and you get to see cute, furry actors)

P.S. If you’re a Costco member, definitely get the annual pass. There are very few blackout days and you can go throughout the year! For example, on your next trip, you can run in to the park for the sole purpose of buying Butterbeer for everyone…not that I did that or anything. And guess what? You can even hop on a quick ride and the people waiting for you in the car will never know! But who would do such a thing, right? 😉

Valentine’s Day Style

Friends! I’m so excited for Valentine’s Day. Truly. I love this holiday. I’m such a big sucker for red, pink and white products. But you know what? Anything that gets me through the frigid winter is great with me!

We have our Valentine’s Day plans all set and I couldn’t be more excited! I started planning my outfit, which is one of the best parts, right? I pulled together a wish list of my favorite Nordstrom picks and thought I’d share!

I can’t get enough of that heart-shaped bag! Isn’t that just adorable? I hope you have fun plans for Valentine’s Day. Let me know if you need ideas!

Gift Giving with The Baby Cubby

If you’re like me, you have lots of friends that are becoming parents, which is so exciting! We have lots of new little people running around at our get-togethers, which is definitely entertaining. These cute kids are basically our nieces and nephews and we just adore them!

As the Christmas season arrived, we wanted to get presents that would be useful for our friends. But more importantly, we wanted to get fun gifts for the kids that would make us the favorites (yup)!

I started browsing online and came across The Baby Cubby. This fun shop has tons of delightful gifts ideas, including Freshly Picked moccs and a huge selection of great toys.  Our favorite part was finding out about the great community that they try to cultivate. Their community blog covers a wide range of topics for new and experienced parents. And guess what? They totally price match! There’s really nothing more convenient and satisfying than knowing you scored the best deal.

I put together this wish list of my top gift ideas. Can we discuss that adorable bonnet?! I need one.
