Part 1: My Florida Trip.

I recently went on a trip to Florida about a week ago. My family and I went on vacation in Orlando, Florida to be exact. We stayed at the Orange Lake Resorts, which is only a few minutes away from Walt Disney World. I haven't been to a Disney Resort in years and I was super excited to go! This was also my first time going to one in the United States because the last resort I went to was Euro Disney or now Disneyland Paris.

Our first stop: Downtown Disney! Downtown Disney is free to the public and there is also free parking here. Here you will find dining, shopping, and entertainment. I ate, I shopped, I ate, I shopped, and I ate some more!

I did not take a photo of everything I past by or every food I ate though.

We were approaching Downtown Disney and this was the first thing I spotted.
Downtown Disney is currently under a lot of construction and is being expanded to Disney Springs.

The AMC Downtown Disney 24 Dine-In Theatres. You can dine and watch movies here!

I made a list of restaurants I wanted to check out before arriving to Florida. We were already hungry when we arrived and I came across one of the quick service restaurants from my list, which is The Express at Wolfgang Puck Grand Cafe. This restaurant is actually one of the more affordable spots at Downtown Disney.

My sister picked out the California Roll sushi.

I chose the Pepperoni Pomodoro Pizza. It was honestly the best pizza I've ever eaten!

Characters in Flight. This is an air balloon that guests can ride.

I can't visit Florida and not include a photo of some palm trees.

Outside of DisneyQuest. This is an indoor interactive theme park.

Another view of the waterfront at Downtown Disney.

Along the waterfront you will find a few restaurants like Fulton's Crab House.
It's a seafood restaurant on an actual riverboat. Very unique!

After a few hours of being at Downtown Disney we decided to stop for drinks. We stopped by Dockside Margaritas located near the waterfront. My sister and I got the Orange Grove Rum Runner and my boyfriend and mom got the Florida Citrus Freeze.

Orange Grove Rum Runner includes Siesta Key Spiced Rum, Blackberry Brandy, Crème de Banana and Florida Citrus Juices with a float of Gosling's 151 Rum. Florida Citrus Freeze includes Florida Cane 'Orlando Orange' Vodka and Peach Schnapps blended with Orange Purée.

Anthony's Florida Citrus Freeze. This drink was very tasty!

My black and red sequin Minnie Mouse ears headband I picked up from one of the shops.

I stopped at a new restaurant as we were on our way out of Downtown Disney. Vivoli Gelateria, a gelato shop! It also offers a variety of other Italian goodies other than gelato though. You are able to sample any flavors of the gelato while you're there. I picked out a Media (medium) size cup, which allowed me to pick out 3 flavors. I picked out chocolate-hazelnut, chocolate chip, and vanilla. It was so yummy and very fresh!

A few random snapshots from my phone before and while I was at Downtown Disney.
Photos from left to right: 1) Of course I had to take a balcony selfie before heading out for the day. Natural lighting for the win! 2) Anthony and I enjoying our drinks near the waterfront by Dockside Margaritas. 3) Our Pepperoni Pomodoro Pizza from Wolfgang Puck Express before we devoured it. The best pizza ever! 4) More selfies near the waterfront after enjoying the scenery.

My sister took a photo of me taking photos. Thanks Tiffany!

A beautiful sunset as we were leaving the mall heading back to our resort.

I had a lot of fun in Downtown Disney and ate some yummy foods. I wished I had taken more photos of the food I ate and the shops I visited when I was there though. It's definitely a must visit even if you aren't planning to go to the actual Walt Disney World parks. I'm looking forward to my next visit!

Her Hair Company: Brazilian Wavy Hair.

A couple weeks ago I received some hair from Her Hair Company. Her Hair Company offers hair extensions starting at $105 and hair bundle deals starting at $197. I decided to attempt at making my first wig ever!

The hair texture that I picked out is the Brazilian Wavy hair. I have this hair in 18 inches, 20 inches, and 22 inches. I also have a 14 inch lace closure in the same hair texture. The different inches of hair provide a layered look without me having to actually cut the hair.

Be sure to watch the video to hear my initial thoughts on the brand and the hair!

So far I am absolutely loving this hair! I decided to add a little bit of coloring to it and do a soft brown ombre, which is a bit hard to pick up on camera. You can check out the photos below to see the final results and how the hair looks once it's styled.

New Hair For Spring.

It's Spring time and I really wanted to go for a different hair style this year. I decided I wanted to go for a bob or short hairstyle. I received this unit from Ginny Lace Wigs and it's a celebrity inspired hairstyle from Taraji P. Henson. She always has the cutest short styles.

I am absolutely loving this hair though! It looks great worn straight, but I think I like it even more when it's wavy. I like to wave it up a bit with my Remington Curling Wand.

Be sure to watch the video for my thoughts and review on the hair!

Style: Taraji P. Henson Bob

Retail Price: $155

Hair Length: 10 inch
Hair Color: #1
Cap Size: Medium
Lace Color: Light Brown
Hair Density: 110-130%
Cap Construction: Lace Front Wig Cap (Not Glueless)
Silk Top: No Thanks

Do you plan on changing your hair for the Spring and/or Summer seasons?

Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Palette - Vinyl Collection.

I was in Walgreens when I came across a new eyeshadow palette collection from Wet n Wild Cosmetics. It's the Silver Lake Collection, which features six limited edition 6-pan eyeshadow palettes. These palettes will retail for $3.99 each. I decided to only pick up Vinyl Collection.

As you can see this palette has a variety of eyeshadow finishes.

Here is a close up of the eyeshadows in the Vinyl Collection eyeshadow palette.

Swatches of the Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Palette in Vinyl Collection.

Out of all of the eyeshadow palettes available in this collection I found Vinyl Collection to be the most pigmented. Each eyeshadow has great pigmentation! If you're not a huge fan of shimmer, pearl, or metallic finishes then you will probably want to pass on this particular palette.

Did you pick up this palette or any of the palettes from the Silver Lake Collections? Thoughts?

Monthly Subscription: Candy Club.

I was super excited to discover a monthly subscription of candy on Youtube a couple months ago. Candy Club is a monthly subscription that includes premier candies. They offer a month to month plan, a 6 month plan, and a 12 month plan. The cheapest plan available is $19.99, but this does not include the shipping rate. You can learn more about Candy Club by clicking here.

I finally decided to try it out when they were offering a $20 off coupon for St. Patrick's Day. That was an amazing deal that I could not pass up. This brought my total to $6, which is actually the shipping rate. It took about 1 business day to process and ship my order. It was delivered 2 days later.

This is how my Candy Club box arrived.
It included many more salt water taffy all around the box, but my sister and I devoured them.

The 3 different candies come in these cute canisters.

Each box includes 2-3 lbs of candy.

Each box comes with a card with details and descriptions of each candy.
The back of the card shows the nutrition facts and ingredients of each candy.

Gimbal's Sour Gourmet Jelly Beans

Sour Power Wild Cherry Belts

Haribo Gummi Techno Bears

Sweet's Cotton Candy Salt Water Taffy

Butterfields Peach Buds

I was really happy I received the box I wanted. I looked at a few reviews of other boxes and I definitely found this one to be the best one that was offered. The packaging was great and I was happy to see that each canister had a protective wrapping around it. Everything was fresh and none of the candy was melted. I enjoyed every single piece of candy that I received. Each candy was yummy and very flavorful.

The only thing I dislike about Candy Club is that you can not customized your box. You never know what you'll get until you actually open it. I would prefer to actually have a choice in what I receive and not be surprised. Adding some type of quiz to the website would be a good idea.

I really like the concept of Candy Club, so it's definitely worth trying out at least once!

Have you tried Candy Club? Will you try Candy Club? Thoughts?
