Weekly Recap; Feb 5th – Feb 17th

I’m actually writing this on Saturday and OMFGGGGGGGGG.

Whoever THE FUCK lives upstairs spent fuckin 1157pm to 3 fuckin am waking me up, saying “yeahh whoooo” and sounding like they were throwing chairs or some shit.

I even slept with EAR PLUGS and MUSIC ON.

I just don’t flipping understand, I seriously don’t.

Weekly Recap; Feb 4th – Feb 10th

I find it a little crazy at how close Valentine’s Day actually is from today!

Bubba and I haven’t gotten on FFXIV to do the Valentine’s Day event (granted the mount you get sucks, but still this is the first holiday event since we’ve been together that we haven’t done) or taken Valentine’s Day photos!

Whomp!

I’ve tried posting as many Valentine’s Day themed posts as I can, some I haven’t even gotten around to yet and others are still recaps of 2017. I mayyyy post publish those… we’ll see. I mean after all it’s just a place to archive my year for me, right?

Candy Review; Cherry Lovers Fruit Chews

IMG_5068

I literally thought these were jelly beans when I picked them up… even though they’re MUCH bigger than your average jelly bean and they’re heart shaped.

The thing that got me was that they’re made with REAL Cherry Juice! Also I’m a sucker for basically anything cherry flavored.

IMG_5070

There’s a ton of different flavors listed on the back and it’s sort of hard to tell which is which because at least 3 of them look exactly the same!

I know for a fact I’ve had Cherry Vanilla, Cherry Cola, Chocolate Cherry, and Wild Cherry. It does have the tart flavor of what real cherry juice would taste like and some of them have distinct tastes but the 3 plain reds that look alike sort of start to blend in together. Chocolate Cherry is not good at all. I don’t know how to explain it besides not good lol. Cherry Cola is probably my favorite one of the ones I’ve tried so far. Hunting down the other flavors is kind of hard because they start to all blend in together after awhile.

This was a fun thing to try and it does taste good but I’m not like in love with it or anything which I thought I would be!

Also, I sort of wish I had painted my nails prior to taking these photos lol, oh well!

What’s your favorite Valentine’s Day candy?

Hello, Travel

Valentine’s Day at Disney World

IMG_3359

I wish I had taken more photos during this time of year all the years I lived in Florida/Disney World but to be honest I only got to go to the parks once the whole time I lived there and I didn’t even get to walk around or really do anything so yeah, that sucked. But I did manage to snap this photo of hearts on the castle, this was back in 2013 by the way.

IMG_3246

There was also a time when Candy Cauldron did customized apples, white chocolate with sprinkles were my fav. Last time I went there last April they said they didn’t do custom apples anymore. It was a sad sad day.

I don’t know what it is about seasonal sprinkles but they seriously make the treat that much more festive and enjoyable!

IMG_6722

Overall Valentine’s Day, Easter, Halloween and Fourth of July treats at Disney are probably my favorite time to see Goofy’s Candy Co at Disney Springs just bursting with colors and different treats of all kinds. I do love how around Valentine’s Day the Minnie apples and cake pop’s come out!

IMG_6724

The ones to the right were literally a pain to get a photo of because of the damn glare. But you can see the cutie cake pops next to the apples and I think those are better, personally.

I wish I could remember if we had Valentine’s Day themed treats when I worked at Candy Cauldron in 2011, but I honestly don’t remember at all. Working at a Disney candy shop though is a special kind of magic and if I’m being honest, my favorite kind of magic besides working in The Tree of Life and in Fantasyland.

IMG_6730

I’m also slightly obsessed with Minnie and kind of always have been — at least since I first worked at Disney in 2011. I love that she wears an oversized bow. I don’t know what it is about that but I just love it! And plus she’s always decked out in pink and the world girly describes her.

Sadly I didn’t get one of these apples the day I snapped this photo and I didn’t get to go back as often as I’d like to so I never got to grab one. I was a little hesitant to be honest, as much as I loved my apple sliced I didn’t want to mess up the prettyness of this apple and it’s not like I could be like, “hey can I take a couple hundred photos of this outside THEN can you slice it?!” okay they WOULD slice it if I had asked and if I had done that, I know I did it for other people. The request really is not that crazy.

Huh, I don’t know why I didn’t get one!

But next time I’m in the parks around this time of year I’ll MAKE SURE to grab one!

IMG_3475

And just in case you needed proof — here’s a photo of when I use to prop my hair up so I could pin a bow to it like Minnie does, I don’t know how I got my bangs to part so nicely that day or how the heck the Pixie Dust looks like highlights but I freakin love this photo!

I’m also one of those people who stop by Sir Mickey’s at Magic Kingdom or the Bibbity Boppity in World of Disney to get covered in Pixie Dust. It’s my happiness, what can I say? My first Disney College Program apartment literally had glitter everywhere. It was awesome.

Have you been to the Disney parks around this time of year? What’s your favorite thing to do or your favorite treat?

Candy Review; See’s White Chocolate Strawberry & Black Forest Truffle

It’s been a really long time since I’ve had a See’s Candies near me, first of all.

There wasn’t any actually in Florida unless you count the pop up shops/kiosks that would come around but just during the holiday season. And as someone who grew up in California well it was kinda depressing. See’s has always kinda been my chocolate of choice. I mean I like Godiva but I’ve GROWN UP with See’s. So when they release their holiday truffles it was kinda sad I wasn’t able to try them, though sometimes I’d ask my mom to get me some and ship them to me.

IMG_8336

This year they came out with 3 truffles… well 2 1/2 is more like it I guess.

I literally thought both the white and dark chocolate were strawberry filled, I guess I got too excited and misread… whoops. They also came out with the Black Forest truffle. I ended up grabbing all 3.

IMG_8947

After realizing that the dark chocolate was indeed NOT strawberry filled I decided to just pop the whole thing in my mouth, sorry. But the chocolate was fluffy and creamy. It wasn’t overly sweet and the dark chocolate wasn’t at all bitter, it was perfect and comforting!

IMG_8949

The strawberry white chocolate was pretty good; it was smooth and creamy and the strawberry flavor was definitely there. It paired so nicely with the white chocolate too! The only thing is I felt there was too much white chocolate, if you know what I mean. While the flavors both worked nicely together I could had used a bit more strawberry filling!

IMG_8948

The Black Forest truffle was MY FAVORITE (I’m not sure seeing the inside really does anything but it makes for nice photos, right?)! It’s described as dark chocolate with tart cherries and that’s EXACTLY what it was! If you’re a fan of dark chocolate and cherries I would HIGHLY recommend this!

I’m so tempted to go back and get a whole box of these. They kind of remind me of those holiday cherry chocolates you know with the cream or the clear liquid in the middle BUT BETTER.

I’m obviously really excited about this truffle.

I’m also really excited to try the Easter truffles they come out with every year, there’s usually a lemon one that’s really good.

What’s your favorite chocolate shop between Godiva and See’s or is there another one you prefer?

Hello, Reflecting

Hello Spring \o/

Shut ya mouth, it’s Spring.

There was a Silverfish spotted on my wall — IT’S SPRING.

I’ve been sneezing my ass off for weeks — IT’S SPRING.

Bitch it ain’t 11° every night here in Texas — IT’S SPRING.

IMG_8595

Also Valentine’s Day is rolling up way too fast! I have SOME blog posts in the works and SOME I’ve thought of writing but I definitely don’t have 14 of them hoes and I need to. Wtf was I doing all end of January. Oh. Stressing, that’s what. Pffft.
