Preparation is KEY!
I’m super excited to share one of my best-kept secrets when it comes to preparing ahead for the future…CreditRepair.com! My fiance and I are recently engaged so that means we have a lot of big life milestones coming up: Planning our wedding, Buying a home AND Preparing to start a family! What does this mean? (Other than wow time flies by hehe) It means it’s time to get our credit in check and make sure we have amazing credit scores to make all these major life moments go off without a hitch!
I take really great pride in being financially responsible and savvy. Before meeting my fiance I was always shopping, never saving, and didn’t even think of investing in the future with stocks or retirement etc. Fast forward to now, I save a lot, I always keep in mind what I am spending vs monthly bills and things I owe, and most importantly, I think about what lies ahead.
Since we have so many big purchases coming up I was excited to sign up for CreditRepair.com and to work with their team to make sure my credit is squeaky clean to make those purchases and get the best mortgage and credit rates as possible. If you haven’t heard of CreditRepair.com, they are a leading provider of credit report repair services in the United States, with over 500,000 clients served!
I always pay my bills on time and work hard to keep my credit score high so that is why I was pretty surprised when I began working with my Credit Repair team that they noticed a few hits on my credit that we then came up with a plan to resolve as best as we can. They discovered a collections hit from a medical bill a few years ago that was paid in full but was still a hit on my credit somehow. Naturally, I was freaking out but my CreditRepair.com advisor was amazing and helped me come up with a solution. They reached out to the collections company on my behalf to work to remove the credit hit.
It’s things like that that I never even thought of when planning for my future especially since I check my credit score often and it goes up consistently. This hidden hit is something I never would have been aware of without the amazing help of CreditRepair.com!
Whether you are financially savvy and want to remain on top of your game or if you are struggling to get debt-free and have a successful financial future, CreditRepair.com has awesome resources and a responsive team here to support you on your credit journey! Follow along with my credit journey over the next few months, and stay tuned for an opportunity to start your very own credit journey!
While we are all stuck in quarantine my boo + I have been using this time to cook up some Disney magic with yummy breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks + desserts using…you guessed it, DISNEY kitchen appliances and cook wear! From Mickey shaped waffles to Minnie ice pops to slow cooked dinners + more, ShopDisney has TONS of magical cooking essentials you’ll want to add to your kitchen to keep occupied during quarantine. Sharing some of my favorites below including my Toy Story Alien Popcorn Maker (since popcorn is my favorite snack after all)! 🙂
It’s been a crazy month since I got back from the #DisneyCreators trip! I have begun planning my dream Disney Wedding, Disney has shut down due to Coronavirus + I have been going a little stir crazy at home practicing my best social distancing, so I figured now was as good a time as any to finally recap the entire #DisneyCreators trip!
First let’s start off with a brief overview of what this #DisneyCreators Trip was since I got a lot of questions about it on social media!
The #DisneyCreators Trip was a 8 day trip – 4 days at Walt Disney World + 4 days on the Disney Dream from Disney Cruiseline exclusively for influencers within the Disney creator network. The influencers on the trip were invited by the Disney team and what I thought was so cool is that they invited all different types of influencers who LOVE + post Disney! From mommy bloggers to travel Youtubers to Disney Style fashion influencers like me, it was awesome to meet all different types of creators + make new friends all with a common obsession – DISNEY!
Now that you are familiar with what the trip was let me break down some of my favorite moments of the trip!
First up – Recapping some of the best parts of the Disney World part of the trip based on day (figured that’s the easiest way to review!)♥
We checked in to the brand NEW Riviera Resort that was only 2 months old + beyond amazing! The resort has multiple pools, great dining + a beautiful view. I loved the French Riviera theme and one of my favorite parts of the resort is that they have their own line of merch from exclusive Minnie Ears to Hats to Luggage to Pandora Charms to Plushes, Pins + More! I stocked up on all their plushes which actually match the characters at the character dining experience they have for breakfast + dinner at Topolino’s Terrace! The food is beyond delicious + I love the character’s outfits of course.
After checking in + having breakfast at Topolino’s Terrace we relaxed for a little bit and then I headed to Epcot to kick of the #DisneyCreators Trip with a welcome dinner hosted by Her Universe founder Ashley Eckstein who also plays Ahsoka in multiple Star Wars animated features. The food was delicious, we got to network with other influencers and then explore Epcot a bit before meeting up again for a dessert party later that night! We got to enjoy yummy treats while watching the Epcot Forever Fireworks show!
We started the day by heading to the Contemporary Convention Center for a day filled with informative panels, fun giveaways, sponsorship showcase + more to educate all of us Disney influencers more about upcoming Disney developments, new launches + more!
We got to meet the actor behind the voice of Mickey Mouse, learn more about how TikTok is taking over social media + tons more, it was super helpful, informative and fun.
That night we then headed to Magic Kingdom for some ride time, sweet treats + my favorite fireworks show of all, the Happily Ever After show!
OK, so Day 3 was one of my favorite days at the parks! We kicked things off with an early morning trip to Pandora – The World of Avatar at Animal Kingdom. We got exclusive ride time before the park opened to ride Avatar Flight of Passage which was AMAZING (well worth the wait honestly, I know understand the hype) + Na’vi River Journey which was super fun. We rode the rides, snapped pics + enjoyed a yummy breakfast there in the park!
Later that day we headed to Hollywood Studios (one of my favorite parks at Disney World) + had a private party in Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge! We got to ride the new attraction Rise Of The Resistance which was beyond FUN + hands down the best ride I’ve ever been on and worth the boarding group process to get to ride it.
DAYS 4 + 5
Day 4 was a busy day! We checked out of the Riviera Resort + headed to the Disney Dream part of the Disney Cruise Line. We embarked on a 4 day 3 night cruise to Nassua Bahamas + Castaway Cay! It was my first time ever on a cruise so it was a whole new world for me. Unlimited EVERYTHING – I was in heaven from yummy food to dessert to all the pools + more…I couldn’t get enough of everything. I headed to the Senses Spa on board for a few treatments + relaxed in the Rainforest room that has sauna, jacuzzi + more. There’s tons of entertainment on the ship from adult only clubs to theater to movies…there’s a little something for everyone even kids with the kids club!
After boarding the ship we checked in to our stateroom + began to explore. The first night we had dinner at Animator’s Palate which was my favorite dining on the ship. They had tasty dishes + the interactive characters on screens around the dining area was super fun as well.
The next day we docked in Nassau, Bahamas where you were free to explore the island or go off on excursions to see what the island has to offer. I decided to stay on the ship to explore all the activities, dining, shopping + areas. Fun fact there’s no tax when shopping on the ship! PLUS there are tons of Disney Cruise Line exclusive merch only available on the ship like Minnie Ears, Pandora Charms, Luggage, Purses, Plushes + more…I definitely stocked up.
Day 6 was my favorite day on the cruise because we docked at Castaway Cay, Disney’s own private island! You had the whole day to explore the island which had bars, tons of BBQ, shopping + a family beach and Serenity Bay which was an adult only beach if you wanted a little quiet time.
I loved being able to meet characters too that were in fun island themed outfits + snap some great pics around the island. You can rent kayaks, beach bikes + more if you are on the sporty side! There were also a lot of activities to do as well + the cutest island exclusive merch!
The next day we headed back to shore + then flew home. It was honestly one of the best experiences I’ve ever had – I bought so much merch, ate so much yummy food + took way too many pictures hehe :p
Do you have questions for me on anything Disney World or Disney Cruise Line related?! Ask Away ♥
It’s officially spring although with everything going on in the world it most certainly doesn’t feel like it. I figured I’d throw it back to happier times by sharing this cute look I wore in Hawaii at one of the most insta-worthy places on the island, The Royal Hawaiin!
This white dress is a staple for summer! I love the sleeves and length – it is great for Sunday brunch, the office + so much more. It’s lightweight, comfortable and can be styled up or down depending on the occasion! LPA has such great pieces on REVOLVE that you are sure to love.
While being stuck at home is a bummer I think a positive way to look at it is to spend time with loved ones, reflect back on some amazing moments + dream about what lies ahead – I’ll be dreaming of my upcoming wedding + hopefully another trip to Hawaii!

Are you ready for clear skin?!
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been struggling with acne for YEARS. Ever since I was a teenager, I struggled with oily skin + acne on my face, back + chest. I’ve searched high + low for a solution so I could say bye bye to my acne for good. Thanks to my dermatologist and Neutrogena Rapid Clear®, I finally found something that did!
I use the Neutrogena Rapid Clear® Stubborn Acne Cleanser daily in the morning + at night for that ultimate fresh + clean feeling (even though it is strong enough to get rid of acne, it is still gentle enough for daily use). What I love about the cleanser is that it is formulated with maximum strength Benzoyl Peroxide, the acne medicine that dermatologists recommend most for clearer, healthier looking skin without a prescription. PLUS, it is clinically proven to rapidly reduce the size and redness of stubborn acne in just 1 day (and I can attest to this…it is legit).
My other go-to Neutrogena Rapid Clear® product is their Neutrogena Rapid Clear® Stubborn Acne Spot Gel! OK, I’ve been using this spot treatment for YEARS because it WORKS! I bring it with me everywhere + it eliminates acne overnight. It’s a miracle in a tube if you ask me, hehe. It’s clinically proven to rapidly reduce size and redness of stubborn acne in just 2 hours. It’s formulated with maximum strength Benzoyl Peroxide acne medicine, which is recommended most by dermatologists for clearer skin without a prescription.
