I can’t believe how fast this week has gone by. I love when May 4th comes around, but it honestly is SUCH a busy week for me because my mom’s birthday is on the 6th and then this Sunday is Mother’s Day.

I love to squeeze in as much Star Wars things as I can before the festivities switch over to my mom. Last year I was not able to go to Disneyland so I made sure I was there this year. I started off the week with an impromptu date night at Downtown Disney. We had dinner, Salt and Straw, and then headed into the Grand to look at the amazing Batuu display.

Then on Wednesday, My friend and I headed out to Disneyland and soaked in all things Star Wars with a bunch of other people. I honestly felt like everyone was dressed for the occasion and everyone seemed to be in a really good mood. It was such a fun morning with her, and I even got to finally meet with one of my instagram friends which was the cherry on top of it all!

That night, my boyfriend and I watched two Star Wars movies and enjoyed some blue milk with our Grogu cupcakes. It was the perfect way to end the day.

WEDNESDAY’S WISHLIST | MAY THE 4TH

WEDNESDAY’S WISHLIST | MAY THE 4TH

{ 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 }

Bright suns!

I am so excited because today is May the 4th. I love Star Wars, and after not being able to go to Disneyland last year on this day, I made sure I was going today.

While out sitting in Batuu, I thought it would be fun to put together a little Amazon shopping guide for you all about Star Wars. Here are some cute things to add to your cart to feed your dark side (or light side– I don’t discriminate).

How cute are the star hair pins? I think this is such a fun, subtle way to add some Star Wars flair to your everyday. I also love the pork keychain. I actually have him, and he really is the cutest.

One of my other favorite ways to add some Star Wars in my daily routine is to have some drink ware. I love a good mug, and you really can’t go wrong with whichever one you get!

I hope you are having a great Wednesday, and May the 4th be with you.

3 OUTFITS I WOULD WEAR TO STAR WARS NIGHT AT DISNEYLAND

3 OUTFITS I WOULD WEAR TO STAR WARS NIGHT AT DISNEYLAND

I can’t believe tomorrow is May 4th already! I am so excited to be spending the morning at Disneyland soaking in all the Batuu vibes. I originally wanted to go to the Star Wars event Disneyland is hosting that evening, but if I’m being honest, I couldn’t afford tickets. SO, a morning trip to Batuu and my favorite ice coffee is just what the doctor ordered.

I thought it would be fun to share some outfit inspiration for everyone who loves May the 4th as much as I do. Here are three outfits I would wear to the May the 4th event at Disneyland if I was going.

This outfit is so cute and definitely caters to my more comfy, relaxed side. I am calling this my Endor outfit because of the graphic tee, like how cute?!

Next up is my dark side outfit. I love how minimal this outfit is with only black and white elements. It’s so cute and I probably will wear this at some point in Galaxy’s Edge when it’s nice and hot outside.

For my last outfit, I wanted something sparkly and a little fancy. If I am going to be wandering around Batuu at night, I think sparkly stars are a must. I paired it with this super cute “Cutie Batuutie” tee and some sparkly blue ears to match the blue milk I will be drinking. I also took the tie from my dress and tied it in my hair.

I would love to know which outfit is your favorite and if you are attending the May the 4th event, so leave me a comment down below!

MY DISNEY STONEY CLOVER LANE COLLECTION

MY DISNEY STONEY CLOVER LANE COLLECTION

I picked up many things from being in quarantine in 2020. I learned how to make a good Manhattan, I learned to cross-stitch, and I also learned about a brand named Stoney Clover Lane.

I was introduced to SCL via Instagram, and instantly fell in love. When I found out that they had Disney patches, it was the nail in the proverbial coffin.

Fast forward to today, and I have quite the little collection started.

I get so many questions about all my pieces, both on Instagram and in-person, that I decided to make 3 separate posts to showcase what I have (and of course give you all the details).

Welcome to my Stoney Clover Lane Disney collection!

MICKEY + MINNIE CLASSIC PATCHES

Let’s start with the basics.

I started off with only Mickey and Minnie patches because at the time, they were the only Disney patches SCL had. The hardest part for me was deciding what color to put them on. I ultimately ended up with “sky” for all of my Disney pieces because I really liked how they looked on the pastel blue, but the color also reminded me of retro Disneyland for some reason.

I have four main pieces: A mini pouch, a clear travel pouch, a fanny pack, and a classic backpack.

{Mini sized pouch in “sky” with Mickey 3″ patch}

{Clear travel pouch in “sky” with “HOME” rolled embroidered letters in “sky” with a 2″ Mickey patch}

{Classic fanny pack in “sky” with 3″ Mickey + Minnie patches}

{Classic backpack in “sky” with 5″ Mickey + Minnie patches}

I have used all of these in the park interchangeably and love them all. Not only can I use them as standalone pieces, but I love that they all can match and be a set if I want them to be.

Unfortunately these patches are no longer sold. When I bought mine, it was through a personal shopper for Walt Disney World. They were originally only sold at Fable gift shop at the Four Seasons Hotel in Orlando, Florida. Once SCL received a license to create more Disney products, they discontinued the Mickey and Minnie patches. Your best bet is to find a seller online through a Facebook group or if you don’t mind paying a lot, there is always Poshmark.

Do I have a small stash hidden away?! of course, but I am saving them for a rainy day!

DISNEY PRINCESSES

The Princess collection came about towards the end of 2021. When it was first announced I was very excited, but once I saw the patterns my excitement went down a bit. I only really like the Cinderella print and the Belle print. I was very choosey when it came to this collection because I wanted to make sure I spent my money on items that I truly love and can see myself using multiple times.

I currently have five items: A carriage fanny pack, two scrunchies, and a glass slipper patch.

{“Seeing Stars” collection fanny pack in “cloud” (no longer available) with Cinderella carriage patch}

{Nylon Scrunchie in “Countdown to Midnight” print}

{Nylon Scrunchie in “Enchanted Beauty” print}

{Glass slipper patch}

I have plans to put my glass slipper on a mini to use in the parks as well as everyday. I also plan on adding to these items at some point. I would love to get a notebook in the Countdown to Midnight print for a planner sleeve as well as one in the “enchanted Beauty” print to use as a book sleeve.

Do you have anything SCL Disney? I would love to know what pieces you have and how they are customized (if they are) so please leave me a comment down below!

FRIDAY’S FIVE | FIRST WEEK OF 2022

FRIDAY’S FIVE | FIRST WEEK OF 2022

{Starting of the New Year with a quick trip to Disneyland}

{Getting in the last mickey gingerbread cookie until December}

{Enjoying my new Nespresso machine with shots of espresso in these cute cups}

{Feeling grateful for my vehicle after my last car was stolen this time last year}

{Adding to my TBR list with a trip to Barnes & Noble}

I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 2022…

The first week of January has come and gone. Wow! It already feels like it’s flying by. I started off the New Year with a quick trip to Disneyland. I wanted to soak up the last bit of Christmas decor before the park transforms into Valentine’s Day. I also got to enjoy the last mickey gingerbread cookie of the holiday season. He was delicious!

For Christmas I got a Nespresso machine, and when I tell you I have an espresso shot (or two) every morning, it’s not a lie. I love making coffee in my new machine. What makes it even better are these super cute espresso mugs that have mickey shaped insides. I also have done some damage at Barnes & Noble with many a gift cards that I received for Christmas.

I have also taken a few moments this week to asses 2021, and look back at everything that has happened– both good and bad. One of the more major moments of last year was my car being stolen. It was definitely a moment in my life that felt like the tipping point. 2020 was really rough, and to start off 2021 with that was honestly harder. In retrospect, I now look at it as something that I overcame even though I didn’t think I would. Now I have a newer car, and while the check engine light has been on for longer than I like to admit, I am so grateful to even have a car.

As we head into 2022, I wish you all nothing but happiness in this new year, and that we all get through another year in this pandemic.

FRIDAY’S FIVE | HALLOWEEN WEEK

FRIDAY’S FIVE | HALLOWEEN WEEK

{Seeing Nightmare Before Christmas Live with Danny Elfman}

{Getting Halloween Crumbl cookies on a cold rainy day}

{Pumpkin carving date night}

{Enjoying fall coffee and my Halloween balloon from my last Disneyland trip}

{Getting a Dyson Airwrap for half off in the limited edition coloring}

Happy Halloween everyone!

This past week I have been soaking up all the Halloween fun as October comes to an end. I got to go to one of my favorite cookie places called Crumbl and enjoy their Halloween menu. The Monster cookie and the Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll cookie were my favorites!

I also have bought way too much coffee this week and shamelessly have been enjoying it with my Disneyland Halloween balloon in the mornings. I also had a very fun pumpkin carving date with my boyfriend. I decided to carve Oogie Boogie from the Nightmare before Christmas in honor of us seeing it live in Los Angeles.

We had tickets to see Danny Elfman and Billie Eilish perform Nightmare and it was so much fun! I honestly hated the Banc of California Stadium. The parking situation was horrendous and we ended up missing half the show.

I am very sad to see one of my favorite months come and go so quickly, but I am super excited to enter into my birthday month. With that being said, I treated myself to a very early birthday present and invested in a Dyson Airwrap. I loved the holiday limited edition color so much that I knew I had to have it.

MAY THE 4TH BE WITH YOU | FRIDAY’S FIVE

MAY THE 4TH BE WITH YOU | FRIDAY’S FIVE

{Starbucks but make it Star Wars}

{This cute little setup I made onto of our TV unit.}

{Having some fun Star Wars accessories on.}

{Getting my hair colored for graduation}

{Getting a delicious boba named after a Star Wars aircraft.}

Bright Suns! (IYKYK)

I am such a fan of Star Wars…and if it isn’t obvious, May 4th! This week every year is so crazy for me because I have May 4th, Cinco de Mayo, and my mom’s birthday all back-to-back. To say that I fully celebrate all three to the best I can every year would be an understatement. I had such a fun, and crazy busy, week.

On May 4th, I got my hair colored for the first time since 2019, so it is nice a fresh for graduation. I also celebrated May 4th with a Starbucks, a Thai fighter boba, Mediterranean food, and watching a mini Star Wars marathon. It was such a fun day where I got to put the stress of finals and graduation behind me (for the moment). I also had plenty of snacks that were Star Wars themed. I wish that I was able to be at Disneyland on the 4th but those tickets went faster than lightspeed the day tickets went on sale. I went all out with my favorite Star Wars shirt, a cute droid pop socket, and a super cute porg keychain.

Did you do anything fun for May 4th or in general during the week? I would love to hear about it, so leave me a comment down below.

ALL THINGS NEW + SELF CARE | FRIDAY’S FIVE

ALL THINGS NEW + SELF CARE | FRIDAY’S FIVE

{Trying the new Starbucks drink that I am now addicted to}

{Discovering some new makeup products I am in love with}

{Some new sunnies for when the weather warms up}

{Jumping on the Nuimo bandwagon and loving it}

{Finding super cute Star Wars cupcakes, and having a movie marathon}

I’m not going to lie, January and February were ROUGH for me. Now that it’s March, I have been focusing a lot on myself because, well, I deserve it! I have been doing a good amount of self care everyday, and I am learning that it is okay to not be as motivated, as productive, or as scheduled as I normally am. This past week I have stepped away from my normal routines, and allowed myself to not feel guilty about it.

I have found that my preferred self care is treating myself to some things that bring me joy. I started off the week by trying the new Starbucks shaken brown sugar oat milk espresso drink, and instantly became addicted to it. I have had it almost every day #sorrynotsorry. I think that if you are an espresso lover you will absolutely love this drink, but if you aren’t big on coffee flavor, you will probably hate it.

I’ve done a few mini shopping sprees at Sephora lately too. I have been wanting to update my makeup routine, and have been in the mood to try new brands. I picked up some Charolette Tilburry, Rare Beauty, Farmacy and Laneige. So far I am loving every thing I bought, especially the Laneige lip balm and the Charlotte Tilbury foundation. I also added some drugstore products to my line-up and they are amazing.

I bought some cute affordable sunglasses for Amazon. I really wanted a fun accessory to spruce up my outfits, and these definitely add some flair I have been missing. I get so many compliments on the heart glasses and the round wire glasses every time I wear them.

I have been leaning hard into my Disney feels this week and I have been blessed with so much Disney news that it makes it worse– HA! For those of you wondering, yes I have tickets to “A Touch of Disney”, and yes I will be purchasing tickets for when the parks open. Until then, I have been loving my little Nuimos in my room (and these super cute accessories for Minnie). I also have been enjoying watching Star Wars with my boyfriend while enjoying these super cute treats from a local bakery.

I hope that if you are having a hard time right now, you are able to take a step back and just focus on you. Everyone has struggles, and just because yours might not be earth shattering, it doesn’t mean that they are any less important. Take care of yourselves no matter what that looks like to you and be unapologetic about it.

Sending nothing but good vibes your way!

FRIDAY’S FIVE | GOODBYE SUMMER, HELLO FALL!

FRIDAY’S FIVE | GOODBYE SUMMER, HELLO FALL!

{GETTING MY FIRST PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE OF THE SEASON}

{ENJOYING MY NEW DESK SET UP FOR SCHOOL}

{MY FIRST STONEY CLOVER PURCHASE}

{ GETTING SOME HAPPY MAIL IN TIME FOR SPOOKY SEASON}

{STARTING TO PUT OUT SOME FALL DECOR}

To say that this has been a week is an understatement! I not only started school BUT I also fractured my toe which has been stressful in itself. In this Friday’s Five I am choosing to focus on all the good things that happened this week!

I don’t know about you but I absolutely love Fall. I love everything about the season and everything pumpkin related! I enjoyed my first (of many) pumpkin spice lattes and savored every sing sip. You can get my cozy here. I also started decorating for fall regardless of people telling me “it’s too early”…it’s NEVER too early in my opinion! HA! I also received some fun Halloween graphic tees that I ordered a few weeks back from Hella Cute Co. Talk about a great way to kick off the season!

In one of my previous posts (link here) I talked about how last semester I was unprepared and didn’t have a desk for school at home. I upped my game and finally invested in this gorgeous desk from World Market (currently on sale) that I am in love with. It is the perfect size and it is so versatile! I can honestly say that this desk is everything to me right now. Only a week in and having this desk has made my life 1000% better in comparison to last semester.

The most exciting thing for me (happy mail wise) was this Stoney Clover Lane travel pouch. I have loved this brand for so long but could never really justify the expense. I decided to treat myself and get me a pouch and I love it! The patches on it were from the LoveShackFancy collaboration they have and I can’t wait to use this for travel someday. In the meantime I am going to store all my face masks in it!

Are you getting excited for Fall and/or Halloween? I honestly can’t wait! I have so many things I want to do and I really can’t wait for cooler weather.

CURRENT TARGET FINDS

CURRENT TARGET FINDS

Lately I have been doing some damage at Target. They have so many cute things for summer and I can’t get enough! I also have been working on my wardrobe (that post coming soon) and have found a lot of reasonably priced staples there. I thought it would be fun to share with you what I have bought recently!

SHOES

I have always been a fan of the Target brand Universal Thread and right now they are knocking it out of the park! I have been loving all of the summer shoes they have right now and I am loving the natural trend that is happening this summer.

I got these super cute natural loafers for an easy way to elevate any outfit as well as these super cute easy linen slip-on shoes! I also found these super cute natural straw slide sandals that I have been wearing constantly.

I also purchased these faux leather black loafers to wear all year round and the best part is: they were on sale!

PURSES

I purchased this purse last year and love it so much. It is still in style and in store this summer which is awesome! I also picked up this super cute straw clutch that will go with any outfit.

CLOTHING

I picked up this really nice white blazer for this summer to wear with dresses and jeans. I love how versatile it is! I have been buying a few more graphic tees including this one and this one.

It wouldn’t be summer without getting a swimsuit, right?! I swear it’s a girl thing to constantly buy them HA! I purchased this really cute leopard one and it is so secure on the top. I am larger chested, so that is always a main concern of mine when buying swimsuits. I have no worries with this one falling off at all!

Have you been doing some shopping lately? I would love to know your finds!
