• The Essential Guide to Creating a Capsule Wardrobe

    It seems simple, creating a capsule wardrobe; however, I found that it was more work than what I used to consider "wardrobe building". Before, I'd purchase what I liked and hope for the best. The result was a closet that didn't work well together. So, when Adam and I started cleaning out some things (because our small closet was a disaster), I decided to commit to a capsule wardrobe. After doing tons of research, I've come up with the essential guide to creating a capsule wardrobe.

  • The Essential Halloween Horror Nights Guide

    If you've been following me on Instagram, you've probably seen all of my Halloween Horror Nights stories. Adam and I love going to HHN and usually purchase the Rush of Fear pass so that we can go all throughout the event. Now, I'll admit, I hadn't gone to HHN until I met Adam (the first one I went to was the 25th anniversary event) and I didn't ever want to go; however, I can't imagine another fall without going. Beginning in June, I start to get excited for the event and, after having gone for a few years in a row, I feel as though I know all of the insider tips and tricks. So let's get started with the essential Halloween Horror Nights guide.

  • Two Key Benefits of Winc

    You all know that I love to test out new recipes, like these pancakes or this pasta. And I'm sure you all know that, deep down, I can't really cook that well (read all about that here). However, one thing I'm good at? Choosing wine options that Adam and I both love. On most occasions, we have to run out to the store before seeing our friends (either to pick up some wine for our place or grab some for theirs), and we stare at the overwhelming rows of bottles until we pick one - often because of the label, name, or wine region. Well, I've started something that can stop those last minute wine runs and the endless staring because there are too many options. Winc, an amazing wine subscription, has all that I could ever dream of. With it, I feel like I'm part of an exclusive wine club, and I've come with three key benefits of Winc.

  • Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

    For those that follow me on Instagram, you know that I put together a short fall bucket list. The list can be seen here. The first item that I've checked off that list is Mickey's Not-so-Scary Halloween Party. As a former annual passholder, I never saw the need to spend more money to get into the celebration but, now that I don't have one, spending less than one hundred bucks to get into Magic Kingdom for eight hours didn't seem so bad. So, I went, and here's all the stuff I did (and things I think everyone should do) at Mickey's Not-so-Scary Halloween Party.

  • How to Spend a Weekend in Denver

    Adam and I traveled to Denver last weekend for a wedding. Even though we participated in various wedding activities, including the actual wedding and a cocktail hour the evening before, we tried to do a few things on our own. We walked around downtown, tested out a few restaurants, and meandered through a farmer's market. Heading to Denver? Read all about how to spend a weekend in Denver.

  • Five Places to Visit in Alaska

    I've talked all about what to do in Juneau, Alaska but I haven't discussed the other ports we visited. While each destination was beautiful and unique, I don't think I'd do them justice if I wrote a post about each. Sometimes, spending twelve hours in a destination doesn't guarantee enough content for a full blog post - either the photos don't come out or we spend all morning and afternoon on a hike, which would be a boring post if it were multiple paragraphs and sections, right? So here are five places to visit in Alaska (that I can't dedicate a whole post to).
