Monday Must Haves: Monday, September 26, 2016
Happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had a great weekend! Things have really changed here at MWM, and I redid how the site looked over the weekend. So be sure to take a look around. There's some new gems, and old favorites lying around. My goal with this is to be able to connect with you guys as much as possible, and my old layout wasn't doing that for me. So let me know if you like this new look or not in the comments. If you're new around these parts, welcome, I'm Megan. I hope you stick around for a while!
One of my favorite Disney IG accounts is Epic_Epcot. First off, I must say that I love Epcot. As a kid when my parents would take me out of school, they would use Epcot as an "educational opportunity through science, math, and geography" to make sure I had an excused absence. As an adult, I love Epcot because FOOD. One of the best Epcot dedicated accounts is from Judd who runs Epic Epcot. He's one of the best Disney photographers out there, but if you haven't had the joy of checking out this hidden gem of an account yet, please treat yourself today!
My friends Matt and Charity, over at YoHo Disney, have launched an incredible new jewelry shop, where everything is inspired by Lillian Disney, called Lillian & Co. Lillian was Walt's wife, and a classy lady. So that's exactly what Matt and Charity are making. Classy jewelry with a touch of Disney magic, that can be worn even when you're not at a Disney park. Their bangles come in silver, gold, or rose gold, and are so so cute! I cannot wait to get my hands on the rose gold "Do as Dreamers Do" one. From now until Friday, September 30, they are having a launch presale, and the bangles are $18 instead of $26, with free domestic shipping! You do not want to miss out on this, friends.
I hate when the tube of mascara I'm using starts to run dry, then the next time I open it, BAM not able to use it anymore. That happened this week with my travel size of the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. The travel size literally lasts forever. I've been using this mascara for about five months now, and I feel like I could probably use it a few more times if I was going for the spider-lash look. But that's not something I like on an everyday basis. So what's my replacement? (I always have at least three tubes of unopened mascara in my makeup drawer for moments like this) NARS Audacious Mascara. First off, I'm a major NARS fan if you haven't picked up on that. I love the Sheer Glow foundation, and all of the Velvet Lip Pencils! But let's be honest here, replacing a favorite mascara is hard. Audacious is so perfect. The formula is awesome for creating long, voluminous lashes, without a lot of flaking off. And the packaging for all of the NARS products is great. I love the matte black packaging everything has. It looks super sleek and understated, but you know the quality of the product inside is going to be great.
*Like all makeup, this is a personal preference. Some products I love, you might not. Please do more research on new products before adding them to your collection, and buy them from a store that will except refunds on all products, used or not. (Sephora does this!)
It's officially Fall, and that can only mean one thing when it comes to food: pumpkin everything! There's nothing like waking up to fresh pumpkin bread, or going to Starbucks for a pumpkin spice latte. One of my favorite pumpkin foods is pumpkin bread french toast. This is seriously the easiest breakfast in the world!
There's something really special about Thursday Night Football. Last week the Texans took on the Patriots, and while the game wasn't the outcome I was hoping for, I do appreciate how much work Bill Belichick put into bringing up a third-string QB to beating the number one defense in the NFL. That's the thing about football, and any sport though, any team can win on any given day. That's the beauty of the game.
This week I'm going to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom and I am so excited. There's nothing more fun than walking down Main Street USA all dressed up, knowing some of the best entertainment Disney has to offer is coming to you that night, and getting more candy than you should probably ever eat. This year I'm going with my mom and she got the cutest Disney Halloween shirt from the Disney Store! She will be wearing this with a black tutu we got from Target that has silver bats on it. She's going to be the cutest lady at the party, by far!
Well friends, that's it for this week's Monday Must Haves! If you have anything you think I should try, or if you try something on my list, let me know in the comments. Like this post if you love Thursday Night Football too.
