Monday Must Haves: February 29, 2016
Happy Monday, friends! And happy leap day! An extra day to do whatever you want, so spend it wisely! I just got back from a fab weekend celebrating my friend Kaitlyn at Walt Disney World, and it was so much fun! But it's back to reality now, at least for two weeks. So here's what I have for this weeks Monday Must Haves!
I love making new friends, especially friends within the online Disney community. One of the best Instagram account's I've found and have fallen in love with is "thedisneytravelers." Dan and Natalie are so awesome! What's unique about them is that they go to the Parks to do art drops. Essentially that means they pick a print that they've designed themselves and leave it somewhere in a Walt Disney World park for someone to find, to bring a little extra magic into someone's day! They are so creative and want so many people to be touched with a bit of extra magic.

Spring is basically here in Florida. Which means I'm trading my sweatpants and slippers for shorts, and cute handbags. One of my favorite places to shop for new handbags is Aldo. They take designer pieces and make them affordable. I have an awesome clutch bag that was inspired by a Burberry clutch, that I got for $50, while the Burberry one was almost $300. One of the Aldo bags I'm loving most for Spring is the Cobra tote. It comes in two colors, but I love the red one the most. It's more of a coral red than a true red. It's got some great laser cut details, and it's pretty affordable at $60.
One thing with makeup I'm really into right now is contouring. But not crazy Kardashian contouring, but something more subtle and natural. One of my favorite products for that is from Tarte, and it's their Park Ave. Princess Contour Kit, but mainly just the contour shade. It's the perfect matte contour shade. It's so easy to blend, and really work into your skin to create a subtle or intense contour. I don't think I'll use anything else for contour other than this. But if you aren't comfortable with a powder contour, it comes in a contour pen, which makes everything that much easier!
You all know I love music, especially Ellie Goulding! But recently I've really been loving her song "Don't Panic."
My favorite YouTube account is Fleur de Force. She has a makeup line, she's working on her second book, and she's an all around awesome social media guru.
This weekend while I was at Disney I tried a new treat. I can't tell you how dark and sad my life was before I had the croque glace from L'artisan des Glaces in the France Pavilion at Epcot. Basically it's one of their homemade ice cream flavors of your choice, sandwiched between a sliced brioche bun and put in a type of waffle iron to crimp the edges together so the ice cream doesn't come out. You also get to pick between chocolate, caramel, and raspberry sauce to go inside your treat! I can't tell you how good it was, except to say you're depriving yourself if you don't get one if you're at Epcot!
I got salted caramel ice cream with raspberry sauce, which sounds like a weird combo, but it was fab!
Well that's it for this week's Monday Must Haves! If you try anything on this list, or have something you think I should try, let me know in the comments. Also let me know what your favorite Epcot treat is!
