I'm so excited about the news that I'm about to share. I've told just a few people but felt that it was such a big change that it needed to be shared here. If you follow me on Instagram and Snapchat, then you've probably seen me leave a few hints about it. If not, well you should follow me! But you haven't been left in the dark because I've never fully shared the news. 

Are you ready?

I'm leaving NJ. In fact, I left yesterday, October 30th. And I've moved to...

Earlier this month, my parents and I headed down to Orlando to visit Disney World. If you haven't seen earlier posts, then you've been missing out on my Disney vlogs. I mention in almost every video that we stayed at the Four Seasons Orlando, a first since we usually stay in a Disney resort whenever visiting the parks.

You guys.

I love Disney resorts because the theming is always out of this world. The Four Seasons, for the most part, knocks it out of the park in everything else.

a day at hollywood studios & disney springs

We're nearing the end of my Disney vacation vlogs. But first, we're recapping the rainy day spent at Hollywood Studios and Disney Springs!

With so much construction going on at Hollywood Studios for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge and Toy Story Land, there's isn't a whole lot to do at this park. You really only need to spend a half day there, if that. We were just there to ride two rides, but got lucky because we got to see Storm Troopers march by and caught the end of the Star Wars show. And if it hadn't been for the rain, we probably wouldn't have been there for more than a few hours.

Make sure to watch my video to see what else we got up to that day, including a few goodies from the World of Disney store!

On to another Disney World day!

I've never been to the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival so this was quite the treat! ;]

The morning was really spent in Future World, going on rides. This was the first time that I'd been on the new version of Soarin' {loved it} and my first time ever on Living with the Land. The latter has become one of my favorite rides/attractions across all the parks. I'm seriously considering doing the Behind the Seeds tour so that I can get a more in-depth look at everything that grows in Epcot. Amazing that they grow their own produce, right?!

But the real highlight of the day was going around World Showcase for all of the food!

I hope you all enjoyed the first Disney World vlog I posted! I'm back with day two - Animal Kingdom and Epcot.

I hadn't been to Animal Kingdom in quite some time, mainly because I never really liked it. Clearly I was in the wrong because this park is so fun! Maybe I just completely forgot about Dinosaur {love that ride}, Tusker House {great character dining!}, and the fact that you can see so many animals throughout the park and on a safari. All of those things combined, plus a bunch of other stuff that would just create too long of a list, make this such a great park.

We also visited Epcot for a bit in the afternoon too the Food & Wine Festival. Since I've never visited Disney during the fall or winter, I had no idea what to expect. But the little taste we got that afternoon {do you see what I did there? ;]} made me so excited for a full day at Epcot the next day!

If you follow me on Instagram, then you probably saw all of the Disney World pictures I was sharing. Those who know me know that I am a huge Disney fan and have been all of my life. So of course, I was super excited to be there and share it all with you guys!

I just had to bring my camera along so that I could vlog a bit of my trip for you and for my own memories. What can I say? It's hard to not want to capture all the happy moments when you're in the most magical place on earth!

homemade filled chocolates

There isn't a new video today {I'll be back with one next week!} so a fun little recipe will have to do!

I've always thought that making homemade chocolates, especially if they're filled, would be difficult. You need to temper the chocolate. You want them to be shiny. You hope they come out of the molds. You hope they come out of the molds without breaking!

With so many things to worry about, I put off making filled chocolates for a long time. A few weeks ago, I decided it was time to face my fears and just melt some chocolate and see how it goes. I had a silicone Disney ice cube tray laying around and decided that it would be the most perfect mold for my first attempt at homemade filled chocolate. If they didn't turn out, at least they were cute, right?

Jokes on me because homemade filled chocolate are the easiest thing in the world to make! So easy in fact that once you read through this recipe, you'll want to do it yourself.

When this post goes live, I'll be up in the air on my way to Disney World! I'm so excited for this trip and have been counting down the days. In case you didn't know, I have been a lover of all things Disney my entire life. There are pictures and videos of me at just three months old surrounded by everything Mickey Mouse.

I've been planning my outfits since we booked this trip so I wanted to share what I'm taking with me. It's a short trip so I'm just using my Away carry-on luggage, one of the best pieces of luggage I've purchased. I tried not to overpack and leave a little room for any souvenirs so there's quite a bit of extra room in there.
