Hello there my sweets,
So now I get to begin my postings about my trip to Walt Disney World & all the magical things that happened there.
Now some of you may know that I worked in a particular kitchen where my coworkers felt like Ohana and the resort I worked at Polynesian themed (wink wink nudge nudge). I was part of the Disney World Culinary Program (DCP). Now that in itself could be a completely separate blog post and I shall delve into that later.
As soon as I booked my plane tickets, I knew a lot of my time would be spent visiting the people I worked along side for 3 months. I also knew I would need a tropical dress! I looked high & low, I wanted it to be PERFECT. Then a wish came true (very much in the Disney style) & VooDoo Vixen sent me there Maggie May Dress in all it's tropical glory.
The colors were bright! It had tiki's on it (which I grew to love while on my internship)! Beautiful flowers (which matched with my perfect NicCoCoCreation's flowers) & even Hula Girls! It was the dream dress I searched for, but never found until then!
So just as a precaution, I did have to get it altered, mostly it was because I wanted it a little tighter around my waist. However, I truly suggest making sure (especially if you're in the US because this is a UK brand) to measure yourself before ordering. Sounds like an easy enough things to do, but how many of us trying to just go off the conversion chart. Oh, just me......well I now own a measuring tape so never again will I get the wrong size (well at least I hope).
Now as for the accessories!
I want to make a shout out to someone all modern day pin ups should know by now.
@Niccococreations for her talented artwork through flowers. I interacted with her twice trough Etsy & she responds so quickly & truly seems to care about each one of her designs.
So I searched everywhere for bamboo bangles or bamboo earrings! No where! Well I mean places had them, some of your favorite pin up sites have them, but alas it's summer & they're all sold out!
When I felt like giving up, I found this person on Etsy.
They shipped it fast, they have lots of different colors & really & truly it's all very reasonable!
Check them out & let them know I sent you <3
Now I bought a red "D" pin from them at their party which I wore to the parks almost ever day (red lipstick brings all outfits together). This special pin was given out at their anniversary party & I was lucky enough to get one! <3
CONGRATULATIONS ON ONE YEAR MATCH!
An extra little story, basically for my own memories sake!
As I waiting for my reservation to eat dinner at the place I once worked a little girl probably around age 8 came up to me. "Are you Ariel (the little mermaid)?", she asked. "No, no, but thank you", was my response. After she had walked away, I looked up & I saw this little girl dragging her grandfather & pointing at me. It was so incredibly sweet, but also now she's feeding into my desire of trying out for Disney On Ice or something of that nature. <3 <3 <3
Stay Scrumptious Sweets!
