I was recently invited to experience their new Himalayan Salt Therapy at the Waldorf Astoria Spa. I received a complementary Himalayan Salt Stone Massage, 30 minute session in the Salt Therapy Room, and breakfast. While this post is sponsored, opinions shared on my experience are my own.


My focus this year has been on self-care. Between work, creating content and my social calendar, there's not much "me time" in there to relax and destress. 2019 is already off to a crazy start, so when Waldorf Astoria Orlando invited me to come experience their newest addition to the spa, Himalayan Salt Therapy, I simply couldn't refuse.

Himalayan Salt Therapy, or halotherapy, boasts a rather unique experience at the spa. So unique, Waldorf Astoria Orlando is actually the first full-service spa to have its own Himalayan Salt Room on-site.

The combination of the Himalayan Salt Room with the Himalayan Salt Stone massage offers a relaxing, cleansing experience. Plus, the treatments can help with symptoms from both respiratory conditions and skin conditions.

As someone with chronic sinus issues, I felt so rejuvenated after my 60-minute Himalayan Salt Stone massage and 30-minute session in the Himalayan Salt Room. The salt cleanses to help clear out  mucus, get rid of bacteria and soothe lungs. After just 30 minutes in the salt room, I was breathing clearly for the rest of the day. My skin also felt so nice and smooth, since the stones in the massage act as an exfoliator.

Not to mention, the room was so aesthetically pleasing. It was like my Instagram feed materialized itself in the form of a room, honestly. Who knew Himalayan Salt could be so pretty??

I can't recommend the Himalayan Salt Therapy treatments at the Spa at Waldorf Astoria Orlando enough. Thank you to Waldorf Astoria Orlando for hosting me!

Universal Orlando Resort recently invited me to enjoy a special date at the parks for Valentine's Day. They kindly provided us with tickets and dinner during our visit. Thoughts and opinions shared on our experience below are my own.


Flowers, chocolate frogs, Voodoo Doughnuts... sounds like the perfect Valentine's Day date to me! Jesse and I visited Universal Orlando Resort for a fun Valentine's Day date that was anything but ordinary. 


We had the best time hitting all our favorite attractions at the parks and snacking on sweets. At Universal Studios Florida, we strolled around and sipped our coffee before having a friendly competition on Men In Black Alien Attack (and I totally won, just for the record). 


We then went to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley. There, we rode Harry Potter and the Escape From Gringotts, which is my favorite ride at Universal Orlando Resort. I have to ride it at least once every trip! Afterwards, we stopped by Sugarplum's Sweetshop to get Jesse's favorite candy.


We then headed over to Islands of Adventure for even more fun. Jesse rode Doctor Doom's Fearfall as a single rider, his favorite ride, but one I have to sit out (love Jesse, hate heights lol). We made a quick trip to Hogsmeade for a castle selfie and shopping at Honeydukes before dinner at CityWalk.


Our reservations were at VIVO Italian Kitchen, and since we've only been there once before for drinks and appetizers, we were really excited to sit down for a romantic and relaxing dinner. We recapped our day over bread and olive oil, calamari, and margherita pizza. Sooo delicious!

There's plenty more to do at CityWalk once the sun goes down and the parks close... unfortunately, the weather put a little damper on those plans, so we ended the night early, but will surely be back for another date night soon.

We had such an amazing time at Universal Orlando Resort celebrating Valentine's Day a little early. Thanks again to Universal Orlando Resort for hosting us!

Lately, I've added vintage shopping to my growing list of hobbies. More specifically, shopping for vintage Disney finds. I'm not sure how it started, but I have my grandma to thank for gifting me some vintage Mickey Mouse mugs leftover from when my dad was a kid. And then, it got me hunting for more... and now, my vintage collection is starting to rival my new things. I'm totally cool with that.

Finding the perfect vintage piece takes time, and it also takes knowing what to look for and where to find them. I've rounded up a few tips to help you out along the way, starting with where to shop for vintage Disney style pieces!

eBay


The first place that comes to mind when shopping for vintage Disney is eBay! I've gotten a few awesome pieces from eBay for a really good price. With eBay, though, you have to know exactly what you're looking for to get the best results. 

 For example, I knew I wanted this Mickey Mouse lunchbox after Gucci featured an updated version on the runway. I searched for months, even bidding on a few, until I finally scored one of my own!

And, as always with eBay, be sure to check the condition of the items before purchasing. It's best to be sure that it's in good shape before you buy, so make sure the pictures are clear and there's a description of the item's condition.





Etsy


Another good place to hunt for vintage is Etsy, simply because part of the site is dedicated just for vintage pieces. I usually can find things at a reasonable price on Etsy, but much like eBay, it helps to know what you're looking for. Otherwise, it can be pretty overwhelming.

The other thing about Etsy is, unlike eBay, pricing tends to be a little higher, since most shops are flipping their vintage items. This can be good at times, since it's much easier to shop a curated feed, but at the same time, the prices are maybe not as good as someone who's just selling their old stuff on eBay. I've also seen some people list newer Disney items as vintage just because they look vintage, so again, make sure you know what you're looking for.


Vintage Shops

So, flea markets and thrift stores might have the occasional Disney item (depending on where you live), but your best bet after eBay and Etsy are vintage shops that specialize in Disney. I'm pretty impatient, so sifting through thrift stores isn't my favorite thing to do, but strolling through curated vintage shops? Sign me up.

Luckily, I live in Orlando, so there's plenty of shops around here that do just that, but I realize that may not be accessible for you. So, I found a few places online that you can shop!

Rita Lane Vintage - I just scored a cheetah print Mickey slip dress from here and can't wait to get it in! They have really unique finds, including fur coats from Disneyland Paris. Honestly, the dream.

SANFT - Edgy and cool, SANFT is the perfect go-to for vintage Disney tees.

Legacy Vintage - These guys are local, and I always shop them at The Lovely Collection! I've snagged a few Disney clothing items from them and love that they're so unique, but also coincide with my casual, effortless style.

There's plenty more that sell only on Instagram as well, so just keep your eyes open and track the #vintagedisney hashtags for them!
