Monday Must Haves: Monday, April 25, 2016

Happy Monday, friends! The weekends always seem to go by way to fast. Here we are at another Monday, waiting to get to another weekend. But Monday's don't have to suck, especially when you're going to Disney on Tuesday. (If you're going to be at the parks tomorrow, let me know in the comments!) If you're not going to Disney tomorrow, I have some things that will help your week go by a little faster. 

Social Media: 

People love facts. I love facts. Especially facts about Disney. I'm not talking those boring facts like "Main Street USA was built with forced perspective." Most people know those types of things if you've been around the Disney community for a while. I'm talking about facts like "The shutters in Liberty Square at Magic Kingdom are crooked because in that time period they melted down the metal hinges to make musket balls, and shutters where held up with leather straps, which eventually stretched, causing the shutters to be crooked." If you love facts like that then you're going to love @WDW.Nerd on Instagram. Not only are their pictures beautiful, but they have facts like that every day! 

Fashion:

It's wedding season. We can't get away from it. We all know someone who's getting married. Weddings mean dancing, and I'm always down for a good dance party. So you need a dress you can move in, and be comfortable in. If I'm going anywhere for a dress that I can wear to multiple events and feel comfortable in, it's Nordstrom, and it's always the sale rack. They have some great sales, and you can usually find designer dresses for under $100. 

Makeup:

Last Fall Becca Cosmetics and Jaclyn Hill collaborated for a highly coveted item: Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfecter in Champagne Pop. Since then it's been the buzz of the online beauty community. I got my hands on one for Christmas and I haven't stopped using it. Now, you would think that after using it for almost four months that it might be time for a new one, but that's not the case. You need such a small amount of this, that my Champagne Pop still looks brand new! It just leaves the most perfect golden glow on your skin and I cannot recommend it enough if you love a good highlight. 

Music:

This morning I was driving to the post office to drop off the weekend's Etsy orders and Mumford & Sons came on. I forgot how much I loved them, and I thought maybe you might have too. So here's a bit of Mumford for your Monday. 

YouTube: 

If you're looking for some awesome new Disney vloggers in your life Meet The Royers are awesome! I started following them on Instagram a few months ago, and loved the content they were putting up. Then they started a YouTube channel, and they are doing awesome things there! So be sure to go give them a follow!

Food:

I realized something over the weekend that I'm changing tomorrow: I'VE NEVER HAD A DOLE WHIP!!! All of these years (22 of them to be exact) going to Magic Kingdom and never trying that classic Disney treat. I'm ready for my life to be changed! But if you're in the group of people who love Dole Whips but don't get them as often as you want, do not fear, my friends Charity and Matt over at Yoho Disney have you covered! They have a great recipe for homemade Dole Whips, and it's incredibly easy! These hot Florida days are about to get a lot cooler with homemade Dole Whips. 

Well friends, that 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!
