The Nightmare Before Vacation

IMG_20131013_220358

Hello Everyone!

Cierra here, and today I’m going to be sharing with you the top 10 things that people forget when packing for vacation. Between my sisters and our parents we have all forgotten these items in the past. It is never intentional to forget something, you just sometimes have so many things to do and get done before leaving that they simply slip your mind. Anyways, having said that, we have found where all the Targets, Sams Clubs and any other stores we’re familiar with, within about a 10 mile radius of where we’re staying, haha!

  1. Toothbrushes
  2. Toothpaste
  3. Socks
  4. A Change of shoes. (I don’t care if there isn’t rain in the forecast; you take an extra pair of shoes because inevitably your shoes will get wet.)
  5. Pillows (My family and I take our own pillows, we don’t like to think of all the heads and hair, in various stages of cleanliness has touched the hotel pillows, yuck!)
  6. Lysol (Once again we like things clean.)
  7. Power Charging cords. (Luckily 4 of the 5 of us have the same brand of phone, so odds are one of us will have one that someone else can use.)
  8. Sunglasses (Can’t even tell you how many “souvenir” sunglasses have come home with us over the years.)
  9. Chap stick. (Whether it’s hot or not your lips on vacation could be completely dried out.)
  10. Sun block. (Always to forget to put it on, so we get to bring home beautiful red sunburn that turns into a nice peel, especially the scalp, fun times.)

 

Well those are the top 10 of things that we have forgotten. If you have any you would like to share, please do!

Have a great day!

7 Things Every Disney Fan Needs!

FullSizeRender (4)

Hey everyone, it’s Sydnee! As you guys probably know, we are major Disney fans. We are Disneyland Annual Pass holders, we RunDisney, we buy Disney, we are just Disney people. Disney fans need a lot of things ok well maybe not need but we feel like we do. Below are some things that if you have you are a major Disnerd and if you don’t you need to become a Disnerd.

  1. Minnie or Mickey Ears

We hope that this is a given since Minnie ears have become more popular than they used to be. Wearing ears that match those of the two famous Mouses that started it all, enhances the in park experience.

2. Disney Phone Case

Repping Disney on your phone at all times lets people know what kind of person you are. When other Disney fans see it they will want to talk to you and if non-Disney fans see it they will know to stay away. My phone case is a Princess Leia one that says “Join the Rebellion” I got it from Star Wars Launch Bay in Disneyland. The cool thing about customizing it is that you can put your name on it to establish superiority among all of the basics. Just Kidding, but seriously get a Disney phone case from the park or amazon.

3. Disney Bracelets

These bracelets can include a cute cuff one that I want so bad or the classic Alex and Ani’s. Bracelets can also include those leather ones that you can get engraved at a few different places in the parks. Our favorites are Alex and Ani’s, I think between the three of us we have about 20-25.

4. Disney Bag

Maybe it’s a purse, a suitcase, or reusable bag but it’s still Disney and that means it’s better than any other plain old bag. Other bags might as well be potato sacks in comparison. I don’t have one but the other two have a ton of Disney Dooney and Bourke’s they’re expensive but worth it.

5. Mickey Waffle Maker

We know that everybody loves the Mickey waffles from the park but having a taste of them at home is good too. Ours don’t taste half as good as the ones at Disney but  it’s mickey shaped which means it tastes better.

6. Disney Shirts

Whether these are from the parks or a small shop orr you make them yourself, Disney shirts are a must for everyday life and park days. My favorite Disney shirt right now is my gray shirt that says “I Live in Fantasyland”, this shirt is from the park and it’s pretty accurate because I love books so I feel like I’m in a fantasy world more than the real one.

7. DISNEY MUGS

I’m pretty sure every mug we own is Disney. One of us usually comes home with a Disney mug after each trip, it’s a serious issue but we can’t stop. If you too have too many Disney mugs please join our support club by following us and telling us about your addiction, we can’t help but we can support you by also having the same issue.

Thank you so much for reading! If you have anything to add let us know in the comments!

 

 

 

 

Frappuccino Friday

FullSizeRender (3)

Good Afternoon! Today officially marks the day that Pumpkin Spice is back at Starbucks! If you’re like us and you love fall, our favorite flavor coming back so early is not an issue. When pumpkin spice is back at Starbs, that usually means other fall flavors are out in various different things.

Halloween Oreos-  Omg so these Oreos are basically the same as regular Oreos as the orange filling is only food coloring but somehow they TASTE SO MUCH BETTER! We can’t really explain what makes them so good, it’s probably just that fall is our favorite season and once these are back we know cooler (or somewhat cooler #AZProblems) weather is in our horizons.

Pumpkin Spice Greek Yogurt- This year will be our first time trying pumpkin spice yogurt. The past few years we couldn’t find any but it looks like Chobani hopped on the Pumpkin Spice train and we’re headed on a journey to Halloweentown wearing our UGG boots and leggings.

S’mores Candy Corns- We know it seems crazy but these are so much better than the classic candy corns. Like pumpkin spice, S’mores seems to be availing as a popular flavor and we’re here for it. Although it is sad that the S’mores Frappe is gone from Starbucks we have our PSL and these delicious candy corns to hold us over.

These are just the things that we bought at Target today so we thought we would share it with you! If you’re as excited about fall as we are talk to us in the comments!

Have a great Labor Day weekend and Happy PSL day!

Hello Everyone!

 

I hope you are all doing well! Cierra here and I just wanted to give a little update of what’s coming in our tomorrow’s, hence the title.

Lindsey: Currently working on her last semester for her bachelor’s. She’s also flexing her Girlboss muscles at work.

Cierra: Just sent in my application for my 6th semester of my bachelor’s program and trying to deal with some work changes.

Sydnee: A month into her junior year of high school and constantly training in figure skating.

Collectively, we are all very excited to be heading to Disneyland in just a few weeks to experience Halloweentime. This and Christmas is our favorite time at Disneyland. We’re still training for the superheroes half marathon weekend infinity gauntlet challenge. Lindsey and I are excited to go back to the farmer’s market for my bake shoppe (www.cierrasbakeshoppe.com). Plus all of us are so excited for fall! Two of the three of us have already put up our Halloween decorations and we don’t care who knows it! Haha!

We hope you are all having a wonderful week and we’ll talk to you soon!

Soaring Around the World: Travel Bucketlist

Hey guys! It’s Sydnee! Today we thought it would be fun to share our travel bucketlists with you! Fasten your seatbelts and let’s go!

The gorgeous island of New Providence in the Bahamas.  San Francisco Feelings - SF by @thefullfrxme

Lindsey’s top two places that she wants to visit are the Bahamas and San Francisco, California. Both are really cool places. Our family loves all things tropical so the Bahamas would be a perfect vacay. As for San Francisco, they have the original Ghiradelli Chocolate Factory, nuff said.

London, England  Get a famous Voodoo Doughnut in the heart of Portland Oregon. Voodoo Doughnut, Southwest 3rd Avenue, Portland, OR

Cierra’s top two places she would like to visit are London, England and Portland, Oregon. London looks like such a beautiful place and Harry Styles is from England so it makes sense. Portland has a ton of coffee shops and Voodoo Doughnuts so it was obviously made for coffee loving hipsters.

What to Do in Boston: The Perfect 3-Day Itinerary - Small town charm meets big city hustle in this New England capital. Boston is choc-a-block with historic landmarks, killer Italian eateries, topnotch shopping, and quaint cobblestoned streets. Here’s your ultimate weekend guide.  Edinburgh, Scotland

My top two places are Boston, Massachusetts and Edinburgh, Scotland. Boston has everything, they have a big city, the ocean, a preppy sense of style, and my dream university. Edinburgh has castles and tons of book shops so I feel like it was made for me. I would also like to ride a horse, shoot arrows, and let my reddish blonde hair flow in the wind like Merida from Brave.

Thank you so much for reading! Where would you go if you could soar anywhere in the world?

I’m gonna take us out with some High School Musical!

 

Mary Monday

Hey Guys!

I can’t believe it is almost September!

I hope you are having a great Monday so far. Today, as you can see, is Mary Monday. We aren’t talking about just any Mary…  Mary Poppins!

This is one of our mom’s favorite movies and I will often find myself quoting her at work.

I will say that not every job seems to have an element of fun, but you know..silver linings and all that!

1018f35081ffb3059d78907340d96e88--love-my-job-i-love

One of the biggest lessons I know I learned from Mary is that anything can be an adventure if you look at it from the right perspective. A chalk drawing is just a drawing until you open your mind to the possibilities it holds.

So this Monday, I hope that you can embrace the attitude of Mary and seek out the adventure of the day. Who knows, you may even feel compelled to fly a kite!

What I’m Obsessed With… Today At Least

2017-08-24 16.58.24

Hey Everyone!

 

Cierra here, and today I thought I would share with you what I’m currently obsessed with. If you are an avid Michael’s shopper like my mom and I, you have probably come across these amazing stamp sets.

They are apart of the Everyday Value program that is currently going on within the store. Currently they have 4 different kinds of everyday reminders and social media icons. However, I was very excited to see that they have a Halloween set. I couldn’t resist! This makes me very hopeful that soon a fall set will be released and then after that…Christmas!!

They also had a few different ombre inspired ink pads but they also have a set of different color inks mixed in with the stamp sets. I love these stamps and encourage you to try them as well!

 

Have a great day!!
