Things I've Learned from Disney Princesses

I was a little nostalgic this week and read some of my older posts — you know, the ones where I committed to putting more time into this blog and finding more time for myself… those ones. Obviously, life happened and it does make me sad that I didn’t fulfill something I really wanted to do for myself.

That said, it’s never too late right? Rather than feel sorry for myself, I felt inspired. The Little Mermaid’s 30th anniversary is this year (don’t worry Ariel, you don’t look a day over 14) and what better way to celebrate my favorite Disney Princess’ celebration than to share what my favorite Disney Princesses have taught me and how they’ve inspired me. Obviously, I could find “Lessons Learned” and “Inspirational Moments'“ for every Disney Princess — but then we’d be here forever and you’d never read my blog ever again. So I’ve picked six!

Disney Holiday Gift Guide

Hey there, hi there, ho there! It’s that time of year where we’re all thinking about what to get those special people in our lives.

Mickey: The True Original Exhibition

It shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone at this point that Mickey Mouse is getting some love this year because he’s turning 90! He sure looks good for his age, doesn’t he?! Along with all the Mickey style collabs that have happened, an exhibition celebrating 90 years of Mickey Mouse and his influence on art, fashion, and pop culture. I was lucky enough to be able to visit opening weekend with my husband, two best friends (aka my #DisneySquad), and the woman I owe all my custom Disney outfit pieces to. Here’s my take on the exhibition — spoiler alert: it’s pretty effin’ awesome.

Wedding Planning & Visiting Pandora

This seems to happen quite often where I disappear where my posts become inconsistent for a little bit - super sorry about that! I started a new job at the end of May so much of my time and energy have been eaten up by gaining my sea legs (or land legs if you want to stick to the Disney universe 😛

I have been wanting to recap our June trip for sometime so here it goes!

Fave Disney Parks Makeup

I LOVE taking pictures at Disney Parks – whether this is Disneyland or Walt Disney World. There's something magical about the candids and the posed. And in all these pictures, who doesn't want to look their best?

The one problem with this though, at least with my last couple trips, is the constant fight of "I love the outfit/makeup/hair" and "It's humid enough to make even my pin straight hair frizz." 

I have a naturally combination complexion (oily t-zone, relatively normal skin elsewhere) so it's hard to control, especially when it's extraordinarily humid and hot. So today, I've rounded up my favorite beauty products for the Disney Parks!
