Walt Disney World 2016 Haul!

Hello friends! I gathered all of the things I picked up on my Walt Disney World trip to share a haul with you. Gathering things meant not using any of them for a week before I had a chance to film this for you… so let’s just say I’m happy to have got filming over with! I’m proud of myself for not going as crazy as I thought I was going to this trip, plus I still feel like I got a nice group of things! I’ve added links to everything that I could find online. Without further ado, here is my Walt Disney World haul!

Walt Disney World Haul

Chip mug– I usually pick up a new mug on my trips, and because of the number available it’s always a tough choice! This time I went with Chip for Beauty and the Beast, but I was also seriously considering a Splash Mountain one.Chip Mug

 

Tea- I had been keeping an eye out for this Alice in Wonderland tea set ever since BeingMommyWithStyle picked it up earlier this year. I figured I can try all the kinds they have, and then when I go back buy more of my favourite!

Towels- As far as I know I’ve purchased a towel from Walt Disney World every time I’ve been there, so I only had to keep the tradition going! I picked out a mickey pattern one, and also a Polynesian themed one that Ethan has claimed.

Cogsworth- I just HAD to. He is so adorable, every time I see him I smile!

Bath Bombs- As I mentioned in my Trip Recap we walked over to the Grand Floridian one day, and I just had to check out Basin. It’s beautiful in there! The adorable soaps are something you should definitely see for yourself! I picked up some bath bombs (I believe 5 or 6), and it was around $20 for however many you could fit in the tube. There are for sure in the tube two Mickey ones, a Satsuma one, but I can’t remember all of the others! I can’t wait to use them, and I know some of them I can break up because they are huge!

Sleeping Masks- Yes, sleeping masks, plural! I originally had one in mind that you can only get from TAG at Disney Springs and we weren’t planning on going this trip. So I found this adorable Minnie one in the store at the Polynesian and picked it up! On our last day we actually ended up going to Disney Spring, so I bought the Haunted Mansion one from TAG. it’s actually the only think I picked up from Disney Springs, so I was proud of myself!

Sleeping Masks

Ornament– Once Ethan and I were engaged I knew I wanted something to commemorate the trip. Because it was our first “Christmas” trip, we picked out a snowman ornament and got the back personalized with the date we got engaged! I think it’s a nice touch and we can get ones with our wedding date and other special dates in the future 🙂

Uh-Oah souvenier glass- When we went to Trader Sam’s I knew I wanted to bring home a glass because they are so cool! Well, we went for the big one, and got an Uh-Oah to share! I feel like it’s more of a bowl than a glass, and could potentially be used as a small planter! It’s definitely different, but I love it!

Uh-Oah

Ring- Just kidding! I came back with a new ring on my finger but Ethan bought it way before our trip! I think you can say it’s my favourite 🙂

To hear a little more about the things I picked up check out the haul video below:

I hope you guys enjoyed a look at what I brought back from Walt Disney World! What’s a must have souvenir for you? Let me know in the comments!

Don’t forget Disney Vlogs start Friday! The first video will be up at 6am, and there will be a post on here as your reminder! I really hope you enjoy them 🙂

Thank you so much for reading!

Monthly Favourites- October 2016

Hello everyone! It’s already November! Where is this year going? It’s monthly favourites time once again, and I’m sharing some of my favourite things from the past month! From entertainment, clothing and more I’m sharing it all. Let’s get started!

Monthly Favourites October 2016

Entertainment

Adele- I was lucky enough to score Adele tickets last year, and it was finally time to see her! She was amazing, as always. And so funny! If you ever get the chance to see her in concert, there is no way you can go wrong.

This is Us- The only new show I’ve started watching this year, and I love it! It reminds me a little of Parenthood with how everyone is connected while still having their own storyline. I love seeing Mandy Moore acting again, and it’s nice to see Milo (Jess) from Gilmore Girls again! It is a little weird seeing him as a dad.

Clothing

Café Forty-Seven tank– You’ve actually already seen this shirt if you watched the “What I’m Taking to Walt Disney World” video I put up just over a week ago! I absolutely love the colour of it. And it’s so soft. Definitely a new favourite Disney themed piece of clothing!

Sweat pants– Since it’s jean season once again, I find that I like to change it to something a little more comfortable when I get home from work. These sweats from Old Navy are perfect! They’re not too hot, and not too baggy. Plus they have cute little pockets! I found the closest pair I could see online, but they are not the exact ones I have.

Nafise boots from JustFab– I’ll admit my favourite thing about fall is boot season! I have a pair that I got ~5 years ago that I love, but they are very worn and at the end of their life 🙁 I’ve looked at a lot of different styles to try and find that pair, with no luck. Enter a Facebook ad from JustFab, where I picked up 4 pairs of boots for under $100. Ah-mazing! I’m only sharing my current favourite pair, so you don’t think I’m some crazy boot lady!

 

Miscellaneous

Spooky Vanilla Candle- I’ve mentioned how much I love candles when the weather gets colder, and it’s been chilly lately! I only have one Halloween themed candle, so I’ve been lighting it a lot this month. It smells like a spiced vanilla, and it’s really nice! I bought it in 2015 so unfortunately it is no longer on the website.

Mouse Coffee Cozy– It’s it just the cutest! I mentioned it in my packing video as well, but it just brings a smile to my face every time I see it!

MouseOwners.com– Now that you guys now I’m a DVC member I thought I would share one of the Disney websites I look at almost daily. It’s filled with other DVC members and is a great resource. It’s also how I know so much about what’s currently going on in the parks when I’m not there, and any rumors. One of my favourite things to read there are Trip Reports.

Fitness

I don’t talk about what I do for fitness a lot, but I tried something new this month and thought I would share!

Daily Moves from Tone It Up- You probably know that I love Tone It Up and follow their weekly schedules, well, weekly, but I tried something new from them this month. They came out with a 31 day challenge for October, instead of the normal 8-week challenges. In this challenge you had to complete the 5 Daily Moves with 31 reps of each move. It was nice to change it up from my normal workout videos, and oh man was it hard! It didn’t seem like it was a lot, but for quite a few day it was hard to walk!

Ezekiel French Toast- Because I am a member of the Nutrition Plan, I got a special 31-day plan for every day of the challenge. While I didn’t follow it exactly, I felt like I made healthier choices throughout the months, and didn’t drink any pop! My favourite recipe from the plan? Ezekiel French Toast. It’s a healthier version if regular French toast, with protein powder, egg whites, and almond milk for the base, and Ezekiel bread instead of regular bread. 2 pieces are really filling!

DISNEY TRIP ANNOUNCEMENT!!

IT’S FINALLY HERE GUYS!!! I’m so excited to announce that I am going to Walt Disney World on Sunday! I have been counting down the days for what seems like forever, and it’s finally almost here! Check out trip announcement video below (because I’ve been waiting to film it for over 200 days):

I will be in Walt Disney World from Sunday November 6th- Saturday November 12th, and I can’t wait! Don’t worry, because you are coming too! I will be bringing my camera and vlogging the whole time. I plan on filming a room tour of my room, as well as my sister’s accessible room, and sharing that with you when I get back!

There are 9 of us going, so I will be sharing different opinions, and lots of food! My whole family is going (Me, my Mom, Dad, and sister) plus a worker for my sister, and Ethan’s family (Ethan, his Mom, his Dad, and his brother). You probably know how long I’ve been looking forward to this, so hopefully you can feel my excitement! 🙂

As I mentioned in my what I can’t wait for post, I’m excited to be doing some things I’ve never done before! We are heading to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party one night, eating around the world at the Food & Wine Festival, and going to some new restaurants! If you want to see some of the places we will be eating at, check out this post.

Make sure to follow me on Instagram to see some live updates! You can find a quick link at the top of the sidebar, here, or I’m ObsessedwDisney 🙂 And if you happen to see me in Disney, come say hi! I’d love to meet you.

 

If there is something you’d like me to capture, please let me know in the comments here, or in the video! I cannot wait to share my trip with you, and all of the information I come back with. If you have a request for a post that I would need information actually from Walt Disney World, let me know that as well!

I have a bonus post for you guys on Sunday, and there will still be a post next Wednesday as normal. It’s already scheduled, so I will see you all when I get back!

 

Thank you so much for reading, and I’m off to the Happiest Place on Earth!
