I'm sure by now it's no secret that I practically bleed Disney, so attending another Southern Californian theme park is not normally on my radar. However, I started following various theme park blogs last year to help me plan my Disney World vacation and have subsequently found myself unable to escape the numerous social media posts and ever-growing popularity of Knott's Berry Farm's Boysenberry Festival. I already had a lot o...

If you read my Epcot blog, you know I was pleasantly overwhelmed with everything Epcot has to offer, from its futuristic rides and emphasis on progress, to its spectacular 11-country World Showcase. However, in this post, I will be addressing the other significant aspect of Epcot: the food.

In every other Disney World park, I made a point to make one reservation per day for a sit-down meal, ensuring that we'd have at least one...

Even though Disney's Magic Kingdom is far from being my favorite Walt Disney World park, I still had some enjoyable food-related experiences, including an enchanted dinner at Be Our Guest. 

Before I get to the grey stuff, I'll point out some honorable mentions, including my favorite Instagram-worthy treat, the Maleficent Waffle Cone, a lime soft-serve in a black waffle cone. I don't normally favor lemon or lime, but this s...

As I mentioned in my Animal Kingdom park review, Disney's Animal Kingdom is my favorite Disney World park. In addition to the exciting rides, unique experiences and unrivaled aesthetic, the food really made our visit extra special. 

I have to make a confession here: we were given Joffrey's coffee in our hotel room, and I was so excited to drink it... but honestly, I couldn't stand it. Therefore, I waited until we were in the pa...

I ate so many amazing things in Portland that it only made sense not to try to cram everything into one blog. I will pick up here where I left off in Part 1

Before attending a church meeting in the morning, we were in need of a local, fairly quick breakfast. This one was a gamble for me - I opened Google maps a couple days before our trip and saw a restaurant within a couple minutes from our Airbnb, called...

If you read my Portland travel blog, you already know I became completely enamored with the quirky city of Portland and its Pacific Northwest charm. What I didn't include in that blog was my absolute surprise when encountering the incredible culinary scene Portland has to offer. By no means did we extensively experience the majority of what is available, but our experience was still unbelievable nonetheless. 

Please note: This...

Part of my 2018 "resolutions" included exploring more locally, and this little day trip was definitely with that in mind. I wanted to reconnect with my friend Stefani, who I don't get to see often. After perusing Instagram for destination inspiration, I stumbled across a place called Little Fluffy Head Cafe, which turned into the idea of a day trip to Little Tokyo. Los Angeles is often known for certain areas frequented by cel...

If you've read my other blog, you know that I took a short weekend in Philadelphia for a friend's wedding. In this post, I will be recounting all of the delicious destinations I visited while I was there.

First, we stumbled across Cafe La Maude, which was a wonderful breakfast choice after a bumpy red-eye from LA. While the neighborhood was less than convenient and parking was quite a nightmare, I really apprecia...

Go: 1000 steps beach

Stay: Art Hotel Laguna
Eat: The Deck

As you can tell from my recent posts, I've been endeavoring to go on more "staycations." To me, a staycation uses the principle of vacation in a more local setting. You don't always have to go far or spend a lot of money to relax, feel adventurous and have a good time. Why not make the best of your time and explore, instead of staying home and doing the same old thing?

In addition to having a penchant for traveling, eating and exploring, I am also quite a fan of Tim Burton. These two affections of mine became blended at Beetle House LA, our own Southern California of the Tim Burton-themed restaurant that got its start in New York City. Tim Burton, the amazingly creative brains behind of some of my all-time favorite films (Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas, etc.), is not for...
