    Colourpop Disney Designer Collection – Review

    It feels like ages since I’ve written a makeup post – but that’s about to change! Recently I got a few items from the Colourpop Disney Designer collection and I am so excited to tell you all about them. Colourpop is actually a brand I have never been super into – I don’t dislike them or anything, I just only own one lip product from them and have never really felt super drawn to buy a bunch of things. They’re mostly known for being an inexpensive, mostly online brand. Before this Disney collection, I had actually never placed an order there. The one liquid lipstick I have, I got when…

    A Mystery Vacation?

    Since I’m in between vacation series right now – just finished blogging the honeymoon and am about to start my cruise posts – I figured it would be a good time to tell you about my next vacation. And I would, if I could… but I don’t know where we’re going!!! Because my husband planned a surprise vacation for me! Allow me to explain in the form of the following video: (Also, in the video I said we’re 6 weeks away but I ended up taking longer to post it than expected due to transitioning my blog over, so we’re really more like a MONTH away!) In case you want further elaboration…

    Site Updates

    A bit of a different type of post today because I wanted to mention a few housekeeping things. You might notice the site looks a little different right now… this is because I have officially moved off of WordPress servers and I now have my own hosting!! If you don’t know what this means – basically I am one step closer to being a real live blogger! I no longer am limited by WordPress’s specifications when it comes to design, storage, quality, or anything else. It’s all mine! It’s been a bit of a process (and part of the reason I accidentally published my last honeymoon post early was because…

    Our Honeymoon – Day 10/11 – Aloha ‘Oe, Hawaii

    I’m double posting today because I accidentally hit publish because this is post #10 – the LAST post – in my series all about our honeymoon! If you haven’t already, make sure you read the other posts first – they’re listed chronologically here 🙂 DAY 10 – MONDAY, FEBRUARY 12 So here we are – finally on the last day of our honeymoon. I’m honestly getting extremely sad writing this lol it’s like I’m reliving leaving the island all over again! But rather than focus on that, let’s jump in to our last day in Hawaii. We woke up (as predicted) super sad and dreading our departure. We got ready for the day…

    The Menehune of Aulani

    I interrupt my nearly-finished honeymoon series to bring you a special post about Aulani that I wanted to put up before the last day. While we were in Aulani, we started to notice these kinda-weird kinda-cute little dudes all around the resort. We started to notice them…everywhere. They were around the pool, in the lobby, indoors, outdoors, even in the elevators: Sometime during our stay we learned these little figures are called the Menehune. According to Hawaiian tradition, the Menehune are little mischievous men who live in the forests and hide from humans. Aulani paid tribute to this legend by introducing their own group of Menehune hiding all throughout the…

    Our Honeymoon – Day 9 – The Last Full Day

    This is post #9 in my series all about our honeymoon! If you haven’t already, make sure you read the other posts first – they’re listed chronologically here 🙂 DAY 9 – SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 11 Today is our last FULL day in Aulani 😭 But weren’t going to let it get us down because today was to be a day full of rest and relaxation. That’s because we were headed to Laniwai, Aulani’s spa! But first, it was time for some breakfast. We popped down the quick service location to grab a few things and brought them back up for breakfast on the balcony. We had French toast and some donuts – and were…

    Laniwai, A Disney Spa at Aulani – Review

    As we creep closer and closer to being done with my honeymoon series, I decided I had one more special experience I wanted to write a standalone post about similar to my Club 33 and Walk in Walt’s Footsteps Tour posts. Today I want to tell you all about the fabulous experience we had at Laniwai, the Disney spa at Aulani! We decided to book a couples massage at Laniwai as part of our honeymoon, which we graciously received as a gift from off of our honeymoon registry! Many thanks to those who gifted us this amazing experience 🙂 We had read reviews of the spa before our trip and…

    Our Honeymoon – Day 8 – A Hike & A Photoshoot

    This is post #8 in my series all about our honeymoon! If you haven’t already, make sure you read the other posts first – they’re listed chronologically here 🙂 DAY 8 – SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 10 After our first full day on Oahu and at Aulani yesterday, we were ready to get going on more adventures and were up early this Saturday morning! Our destination today was something not necessarily in my comfort zone, but we were both excited about it. We were heading to Diamond Head State Monument for an early morning hike! Diamond Head is a “volcanic cone” in Honolulu that’s a pretty big tourist attraction. The view from the top…

Everything on the menu sounded amazing: And they had my favorite POG juice too! For our meal, here’s…

    Back from California!

    The title here says it all – I’m back from my vacation to California!! It was an absolutely amazing trip and we had so much fun! Sarah, Ana & I always have such a great time together but this was some of our best work yet. Everything went so smoothly, we saw so many awesome things and made tons of great new memories. I’m going to blog the whole thing at some point (I know, I still need to finish the honeymoon AND do all the cruise posts too 😬) but I also am so excited because we vlogged basically the whole trip! And I think I’m going to have to…
