Monday Must Haves: January 18, 2016
Happy Monday, friends! I am so excited about this week because there's a lot of new and exciting things happening here at Mingling With Megan. There's going to be a ton of new content on this site, two new videos on my YouTube Channel, and there's a big announcement coming Wednesday! So be on the lookout for all of that. As always updates will be on my Twitter and Instagram account, so make sure you're following me there. As for today, there's great stuff going on!
One of my favorite restaurants at Disney Springs (or Downtown Disney if you don't like change) is Raglan Road. It's an Irish Pub and they have the best food! I love their brunch, and they have some of the best appetizers on Disney property. My family and friends love to go there when we are at Disney, sit outside, get a drink, watch the band, and just hang out for a while. While I've talked about Raglan Road before in the food section of the Monday Must Haves, I haven't talked about their great Twitter account.
My friend Kaitlyn told me about Raglan Road's Twitter last night and I instantly knew they were going to get a follow. I wasn't disappointed. With all of the pictures of food, cheeky comments, and soup of the day being beer, there's no way the follow button wasn't getting pressed.

In case you haven't been outside lately because you work from home, or you just choose not to interact with other people (which is fine too!) here's a weather update: IT'S COLD! Since I work from home right now, I don't usually get dressed in "real work clothes." My work clothes are leggings, a t-shirt, and my favorite slippers. Which is what everyone, even if you work in an office should have! A great pair of slippers you can put under your desk, take your shoes off and be comfortable. Then when you have to go see the boss about the meeting coming up tomorrow, just slip your "work appropriate" shoes back on. Because let's be honest, there are two times in your life you don't want cold feet, your wedding day and when you ask your boss for the raise you deserve.
Strobing has become the new makeup trend in the last few months. If you're a makeup novice, or someone who just likes what they like, which both are fine, you might not know what strobing is. Basically it's highlighting but on a much higher scale. Most people highlight on the top of their cheekbones, brow bone, and bridge of their nose. With strobing the highlight is much more concentrated for a finer line on those places, and the color is much more pigmented. One of my favorite companies that do great strobing products is Iconic London. They have a strobing stick that you can put basically anywhere, or mix with your foundation for a really dewy finish to your look.
One of my favorite YouTube channels is ICovetThee. Alix is always putting up original content and she's very honest about her opinion on things.
I first discovered Tori Kelly when she sang at an award show last year, and since then she's just grown and grown, including doing a bit with James Corden on The Late Late Show.
One of my other favorite places at Disney is Animal Kingdom Lodge. Specifically Boma for breakfast for the papaya, avacado, and grapefruit salad. It's one of my favorite things on the breakfast bar and every time my family eats at Boma I get about three servings of that salad. This morning I learned how to make it myself and it was so incredibly easy, quick, and delicious!
Well, that's it for this week's Monday Must Haves! If you try any of these things or have something you think I should try, let me know in the comments! Also let me know where your favorite place to eat at Disney is!
