What a ___ Wednesday! What a Vacation!

    I know, I know...It's been a couple of weeks since my last post but I have been going through a few life changes (quitting my job, looking for new opportunities) so I have been a little preoccupied with that recently. 

I did post a new Youtube video about a week and a half ago.  Check out my channel HERE if you would like to see it! It has to do with today's topic, which is Universal Orlando Resort!


As you saw in my last post, we went on a little 4 day trip to one of our favorite places in the world and I wanted to share a few places and spots with you all from our trip that we really enjoyed. 

We did go right at the beginning of Mardi Gras which I didn't know it was going to be happening until after I purchased the tickets but it was a nice surprise. 


Mardi Gras King and Queen

I do want to say that Universal was EXTREMELY packed for the month of February. Last year we went in June, right when the mask mandate was lifted and it was soooo busy. We researched when the "slower" times would be and the dates we picked, Feb 6th-10th, were supposed to be one of those times. Well, we were definitely fooled because it was as busy as June of 2021! We were literally in awe of how busy it was. 

Regardless of the crowds, we still had plenty of fun and we still enjoyed every minute of it. 

Here are some of our favorite spots: 


Spots in UNIVERSAL STUDIOS: 



1. Diagon Alley (and everything it entails)

Entrance to Diagon Alley (taken from inside)

There is so much to do in Diagon Alley!

I wish I had more pictures of the Knight Bus- it's amazing! Plus you get to chat with the Conductor and the Talking Head!


3. Hogwarts Express/King's Cross Station

Universal CITY WALK 

"A complex of dining, shopping, and entertainment sprawled around a gorgeous lagoon, with sweeping views of coaster skylines. It serves as the central hub of Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, and with an impressive and varied collection of shops and bites, many visitors find CityWalk to be a great place to spend a relaxing day playing miniature golf, seeing a show, or even getting a tattoo. After dark, CityWalk has a handful of vibrant nightlife options as well. Even if it’s not your final destination, CityWalk is definitely worth budgeting a bit of extra time for when passing through on the way to or from the parks." (from the Orlando Informer)





1. HARD ROCK CAFE and the view from across the pond from it :)

Inside the Hard Rock Cafe



2. PUTT PUTT GOLF - we played here on two different days and it was pretty fun!




3. All the stores especially the LEGACY store and the UNIVERSAL store. There are so many options to shop though.




4. All the little stand alone shopping spots in the middle of City Walk. 

We love Voodoo Donuts! 


Honestly, City Walk is just amazing for any time of day: breakfast, lunch, dinner or evening entertainment. It has everything you want and more. It is also such a great area if you want to have a drink and relax at one of their outdoor tables. 

All in all, I definitely recommend visiting Universal Orlando Resort at least once! This is now our go to vacation spot :) 


Until next time,



XoXo

2023, A new Beginning

We made it to the New Year! It’s a fresh new beginning… then why does it feel exactly the same? If you didn’t have any party plans last night then you probably spent it in your home doing normal things, as I did. I had the TV on, watched a couple of shows, had a couple of drinks with my boyfriend and made some food. Then in the middle of Wednesday, episode 3, the clocked turned to midnight and the New Year was upon us. We paused the show, wished each other a happy new year, watched some fireworks that were being launched outside our home and then went back to watching the show! It felt exactly the same but at the same time it felt like a reset button was pressed. Today I woke up to new hope and looking forward to the future. Since New Year’s Day is a Sunday, I didn’t do much of anything. Had my regular coffee, breakfast and then had to pick up some medicine from the pharmacy for my boyfriends mom. Then we dropped her off back home to rest and we did a little shopping of our own

What a ____Wednesday! Molly Mae Hague Comment

What a comment! What if someone said "we all get the same 24 hours in a day" it is what you do with them that matters. How will that make you feel?  Well, someone did say that and that someone was Molly - Mae Hague. You probably don't know who she is if you don't keep up with British "celebrities".  She was on a show called Love Island where she found her current partner and boxer, Tommy Fury. They have been together and living together since 2019. They did not win the show Love Island but they were runner ups.  I have been a fan of theirs ever since. Molly has such a down to earth personality and they seem like they make such a cute and strong couple. Molly is on YouTube where she posts pretty religiously and her videos are definitely the type of videos that I watch and love. She posts day in the life type of videos, makeup videos, lifestyle and more!   Ever since being on Love Island, Molly has gained over 6 million followers on Instagram and quickly becam
