Disney Dream Honeymoon Part 2

Disney Dream Honeymoon Part 2

I’m recapping my dream Disney honeymoon through this blog series! To start from the beginning, check out part 1 here! Day 4- Magic Kingdom I will be honest with you- I am a Disneyland SNOB. I was an annual passholder for 5 years and so the classic Disneyland park is my metric I compare every other Disney park against. Therefore, I’m usually pretty critical of Magic Kingdom because it feels like a much lighter version of Disneyland to me, without a lot of the classic rides. So I was hesitant going to Magic Kingdom this time because it definitely underwhelmed […]

Disney Dream Honeymoon Part 1

As many of you probably know, I recently got married! After a year and a half of planning we had the most wonderful wedding and the Disney Honeymoon of our dreams! It’s no secret that we are huge Disney people, and Disney has played a role in many of our major life moments (we got engaged at Aulani, I had my bachelorette in Disneyland, etc.) So it was really a no-brainer that continuing the Disney tradition for our honeymoon was the right decision for us. We also love Disney vacations because they’re so low stress- everything you want and need […]

ALA Midwinter 2019 Event Recap | Seattle Stole My Heart

After 4 long years, I finally made it back to ALA! I had the chance to attend when I was still a baby blogger who had only been blogging for around one year, and I was so excited to have ALA return to the West Coast and attend as a seasoned blogger with 5 years under my belt! After a totally action packed January, Max and I hopped on a plane to Seattle to spend our last weekend of the month in the Pacific Northwest. We’d both been to Seattle before (as we both have family in Washington) but it […]


I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For…

I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For…

Way back in July, Max surprised me with Museum of Ice Cream tickets, a bit of a belated birthday present since we hadn’t been able to get tickets for my birthday back in January, as at the time tickets were SUPER hard to get. I was thrilled to finally visit what has probably been on of the most Instragram worthy spots in the past few years and live out all of my insta-dreams. So full disclosure, I fully intended to wear something cute and pink to go with the aesthetic of the museum. However, upon looking through my closet, I […]

Disneyland Summer 2018 | Blogging Besties Unite

If you’ve been around my blog for a while, you’ll know that Max and I make every effort to visit a Disney park at least once per year. Generally we go around Halloweentime (we love the decorations!) but when I heard that Lauren was going to be in SoCal this summer I could not pass up the opportunity to finally meet her in person, and I suggested that her and Chris meet us at the happiest place on earth since they’d never been! What ensued was basically one of the best days EVER. Day 0 Max and I drove down […]


YALLWEST Round 4: Senior Year

YALLWEST Round 4: Senior Year

I’ve been blessed enough to be able to attend YALLWEST since its inaugural year in 2015, and returned again this month for its fourth year (“senior year,” if you will) in sunny Santa Monica. The festival was a bit more hectic that usual for me due to work commitments as it happened a bit later than it usually does, however we still ended up making it and catching up with our book squad from last year and having a fantastic time! Each year more and more publishers and vendors come out for the west coast event and it was great […]


Change of Scenery // High Tea Tuesday

Change of Scenery // High Tea Tuesday

In an effort to integrate more variety into my blog and talk about things I love outside of books, I’m starting this feature to showcase non-bookish travel destinations, shops, and venues I love, from local to out of state. What’s high on every bookworm’s preferred beverage list? Tea, of course! So when I was able to attend a holiday party on a random Tuesday in December I knew I had to document it for the blog. Now, I’m not a complete stranger to high tea- I’ve been in London at BB Bakery and in Walt Disney World at the Grand […]

Halloween Time at Disneyland | Farewell to Our Annual Passes

This fall Max and I took our annual fall trip to Disneyland to see the Halloween decorations. Traditionally, Halloweentime at Disneyland has been our favorite time to go since the park is decked out in holiday decor but kids are back in school so it’s generally much quieter than Christmastime. Unfortunately, that was NOT the case this year, as it was pretty insanely busy (we did go on a weekend, but still). Disneyland Resort has been doing a LOT to promote Halloweentime at the parks lately and it definitely shows with the increased number of guests, especially with all the […]


YallWest Round 3 | Everything is Better with a Book Squad

YallWest Round 3 | Everything is Better with a Book Squad

YallWest is my FAVORITE weekend of the year, combining books+friends+California (what more can you ask for?) Attending since its inaugural year in 2015, Max and I somehow managed to squeeze in a whirlwind trip admist a very busy work month for the both of us, and it’s safe to say that is was the BEST YallWest we’ve attended yet! As usual, we chose to drive because I’m not about my books getting smashed in the overhead bin of an airplane. So we headed out around 7am (we had intentions to leave at 5am…but you know how that goes). After a […]


Building My Hawaiian Vacation TBR Plan

Building My Hawaiian Vacation TBR Plan

Having a winter birthday means I have a lifelong complex about the cold. It always limited the birthday activities I could have (I’m still longing for all the pool parties I missed out on having), limited who could come (many people were away visiting family or on vacation), and my parties and celebrations were overshadowed by the holidays. I vowed to myself that ONE YEAR I would finally spend my birthday somewhere tropical, where I could lounge on the beach and enjoy the outdoors and perhaps have a cute birthday outfit that wasn’t obscured by a winter coat. Well my […]
