Backpacking in New York

It’s really not that hard to backpack across even the notoriously expensive city of New York while on a budget. The truth is that New York is also home to tons of free and/or cheap attractions. You just need to know where to look. With that in m...

Minnie’s Garden Party at Epcot

I got back a few days ago from a whirlwind 24 hours at Disney World to celebrate my main mouse Minnie’s Garden Party. When I think of Garden Parties (which isn’t all that often), I think of the scene in the early 2000s classic, ‘What A Girl Wants’, ...

Our Favorite Date Night Restaurants at WDW

I’m a sucker for romance – I watch The Bachelor (it’s like my fantasy football), I don’t think Valentine’s Day is just for Hershey and Hallmark, I like long walks on the beach, I think Jane and Rafael are soulmates on Jane the Virgin – AND I think t...

Our Favorite Free Things at WDW

You know what I love?! FREE THINGS! People often think that Disney World is one of the most expensive places on earth, as well as the most magical. And what can we say? The mouse likes his cheese. He does give some of that cheese away for free thoug...

Our Favorite Restaurants at Disneyland

If eating was a ride at Disneyland, we would have a FastPass 24/7. I know that sounds a bit like an exageration, and maybe it is, but we love the food at Disneyland. We consider ourselves world champion eaters, and alas, would feel remiss if we didn...

Celebrating Birthdays at Disney

Disney is the most magical place on earth, so it goes without saying that it’s one of the most magical places to spend your birthday. I spent my last birthday at Disneyland, and it was one of my favorite birthdays ever. Today, we’re sharing some of ...

My Top Hair Products of All Time

Confession: I am a hair product hoarder. Growing up, my best friend had a giant table in her bathroom where we would stockpile all of our hair products. We would get ready to go out to high school parties, and we would use a ton of products that we ...

Our Favorite Spots in Orange County

In high school, my favorite show was The OC. I owned all the seasons on DVDs, and could basically quote all the episodes. Orange County might not have the same drama or quippy one-liners, but it does have great food and beautiful scenery. We’ve made...
