It is crazy to think that human sacrifices were done here! This was my second time here but it is always so much fun going here.

Magic Kingdom ♡

11063393_931383790251153_936293734_n

GUYSSSSS!! I went to Disney World (Magic Kingdom to be exact) with my girlies yesterday.

11079693_931380276918171_1282008114_n 11075864_931380253584840_1343320059_n

Can you tell how HAPPY I was?

11040068_931385796917619_9222129_n

I love Disney so much it was so breath taking to see Cinderella’s Castle while listening to all the classic Disney songs. I’ll be honest, I did tear up a little.. the music and atmosphere of Disney was very memorable and beautiful to me.

 (dream goal: I want to stay in Cinderella’s Castle one day)

Don’t worry I let the castle know that I would stay over for a couple nights one day!

11076097_931388506917348_895570936_n

We went on so many rides but the Space Mountain was by far my favorite ride.

10567310_931389220250610_1858171892_n

We had to get the turkey leg!!!!

11073534_931389216917277_1124064231_n

I literally ate the whole turkey leg straight to the bone

11072082_931391346917064_1365430090_n

We also got cotton candy which is my all time favorite! Getting cotton candy at any amusement park is definitely a ritual for me.

11079692_931393076916891_296359719_n

At the end of the day Disney had a firework show which was very touching and moving (I did cry a little). The firework show was all about “Wishing Upon a Star” and how  you should believe in your dreams. I would definitely recommend if you ever go to Disney to stay and watch the firework show. It was soooo inspiring.

I ordered the Super Green salad.  I loved that they added fresh feta cheese and avocado but my favorite part of the salad was the dressing which was a “chia-lime vinaigrette”  omg it was delicioussss

11075994_930798466976352_94087278_n

I also tried a few of their beverages , I fell in LOVE with the mint julep so I would definitely recommend that which contained lavender, jasmine, rose, and peppermint.

12 travel necessities ♡

12tn

Hey Guys 🙂 guess who is in Florida this week for Spring Break?!? yes, me!!!! While I was on the airplane traveling today I was thinking about how I bring so many things on the airplane. I decided to make a list of my traveling essentials.

1. Water– water is so important when you’re traveling for various reasons. The air in the plane can tend to make you feel really dry. Water helps hydrate not only the inside of your body but it helps hydrate your skin as well. Traveling for long hours can cause fatigue in your body but drinking water can help eliminate fatigue. Drinking water on the airplane can also help you stop feeling nauseous for those of you who tend to feel nauseous on airplanes. I would recommend buying a big water bottle before boarding on to your flight.

2. Chapstick- Due to the air being so dry in the airplane, I like to bring chapstick with me to help keep my lips hydrated and moist throughout my flight.

3. Headphones- Sitting on an airplane inches away from strangers can be a little strange at times. It’s nice to carry headphones with you so you can go into your own little world wether its to watch a movie or listen to music.

4. Hand Lotion- I like to bring lotion on the plane with me because my hands to get really dry. In my opinion applying lotion to my skin makes me feel refreshed and smelling clean.

5. Book/Magazine- Depending on where you’re going flights can feel awfully long. A great way to lose track of time is to bring a novel you like and just enjoy going into a new world with what you’re reading.

6. Fruits & Nuts- People know me as the girl who carries fruits with me wherever I go and that definitely does not stop when I travel.  I don’t know about you but I get hungry at random times while traveling and I don’t necessarily love airplane food so I like to bring some fruits and nuts in my bag.

7. Camera- Traveling around the world can create lots of memories that you want to remember forever.I love capturing those moments through photos and looking back at sweet memories.

8. Notebook- I like to bring a notebook with me when I travel why because I  really inspired to write when I travel. I get so moved by the people I meet and the new cultures that I get to experience.

9. Gum-  Carrying a pack of gum or mints is an essential while traveling, due to just feeling groggy and gross when you travel sometimes it is nice to feel refreshed with some minty gum.

10. Cardigan/sweater- It can get really cold on airplanes and I get cold very easily and so I always bring an extra cardigan or sweater with me when I travel.

11. Ipod-  I actually like to make playlists when I travel or just focus on a certain artist and listen to them on repeat over and over again. Many songs that I listen to remind me of certain places I have travelled to because I had listened to that specific song at the time I visited the certain place.

12. Makeup Bag- I carry a small makeup pouch with me and I also put my toothbrush in this bag as well. I remember wise words from a lady that I know who is a pilot telling me (while she was putting lipstick on) “You never know who’s watching” that is very true. Now that doesn’t mean I get all dolled up but I like to touch up my face here and there with all the drools and naps that I take on planes haha (not really. but really 😉 )

What are some of your travel necessities?

with so much love,
