Haunted Mansion Holiday

Hello dearies! I was a guest for vlogmas on Walt’s Classics this December and I filmed a ride-through of the Haunted Mansion Holiday! I thought it’d be nice to upload it to my channel as well, so that’s why I’m talking as if it’s not my channel hihi hope you enjoy coming along for the ride where you can see what happens when 2 holidays collide…at Disneyland!

November Outfits

Hello dearies! After all the events of Halloween time in October I must say it took me quite some time to recover! Jonas & I have also been trying to get on our feet again and therefore I’m afraid my outfits of November are some what lacking. Though this month has held some really rough moments in the spirit of Thanksgiving I want to remain grateful and leave you a quote from one of my favorite Irving Berlin songs:

“Got no checkbooks got no banks
Still I’d like to express my thanks
I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night
And with the sun in the morning
And the moon in the evening
I’m all right”

{MAKING CHRISTMAS} I was asked my my friend Savannah of Walt’s Classics to be apart of her vlogmas on her YouTube channel! I decided to do a ride through the Haunted Mansion Holiday at Disneyland and naturally I had to film in a Jack Skellington inspired DisneyBound outfit.

{SNOW WHITE} When your hairstylist cuts and curls your hair to make you look like Snow White you run to Disneyland in your favorite Snow White Jenny skirt and take photos before it gets dark! Watch my hair & makeup update HERE! I also had so much fun asking my fellow princesses what they were thankful for this year for my YouTube channel.

{VICTORIAN DAYDREAMS} Visited my favorite Victorian house in Anaheim again and this time to film our annual Married Life video. Each year we try to wear elements of outfits that we often wore that year so. So far this year since living in CA I’ve been quite fond of mixing Victorian and gothic elements.

{OAK GLEN} Oh it was delightful to revisit one of my favorite mountain towns in CA with my family! I’ve gone apple picking here each fall for as long as I can remember (besides my time spent living overseas) and the air was cool and crisp enough to wear my thrifted red denim jacket!

{MERVAMP} I’ve finally got my hands on a urban mermaid crop top from Adorkable Appearel by Traci Hines. I was so thrilled that she came out with black mermaid shells for a gothic mermaid like me, which was perfect to wear to Disneyland!

{TRICK OR TREAT} Speaking of Traci HInes, I got to be apart of something really exciting…a “Hocus Pocus” music video!!! Since moving to California I connected with Traci and helped with the set design of the witches lair which you can watch in her “Come Little Children” cover AND I even had a cameo in her “I Put A Spell On You” cover among the trick or treaters and this is the outfit I wore!

{PUMPKIN PATCH} Oh, there are few things that bring my heart greater joy than standing in a real live pumpkin patch! A worker commented when I came in saying, “Oh look you’re dressed for the occasion!” little did he know I do this all year ’round!

{KURIOS} Since Jonas & my birthday have only 1 day in between my family treated us to see KURIOS: Cabinet of Curiosities by Cirque du Soleil and it was AMAZING!!! I absolutely loved the steampunk influences mixed with fantasy and I wish I owned more steam punk accessories but I thought this striped dress had a circus vibe to it and actually fit quite well with the epic big top!

Dapper Day Fall 2015 (Cruella De Vil DisneyBound)

DAPPER DAY!!! I had a fabulous time at my first dapper day at the swankiest place on earth, DISNEYLAND! It was so fun getting a peek into how Disneyland may have looked on opening day since everyone was dressed in their Sunday best.

dapper day-fall 2015_thumbnail

I think my favorite part though was seeing what creative outfits people came up with and even created themselves! Jonas & I went with a 101 Dalmatians couple DisneyBound as Cruella De Vil and Pongo!

dapper day-fall 2015_wm (1)

Who can disagree that Cruella is the most dapper Disney villain of them all?!

cruella_grid

We actually hadn’t planned on doing a Disney inspired dapper look but between a few thrift store trips the pieces just started calling our names and before we knew it, BAM, we had this cute ensemble!

 dapper day-fall 2015_wm (2)

I have a new favorite thrift store (Savers) where I got most of the pieces to my outfit, I can’t even believe how lucky i got! The first piece to catch my eye was the spotted top which was actually a dress…but the bottom part was really unflattering. Then I found this adorable skirt with pleats and cut off the bottom of the spotted dress and VOILA, it looks like a new dress!

dapper day-fall 2015_wm (3)

DETAILS! I love adding special touches to make the look even more unique! I added a Cruella De Vil Disney pin to the bow on my top paired with red satin gloves for that oh so glamorous Cruella look!

dapper day-fall 2015_wm (4)

I knew I wanted a cute fancy little hat to complete the outfit but was loosing hope that I’d find one in time (and was too late to order one online) but then on another trip to Savers I found this adorable little red hat from the Halloween section!!!

Since we recently moved to CA i stumbled upon a few pieces of scrap dalmatian fabric (from the time I was Cruella for Halloween when my hair was actually half black & white) and added it as a trim which I think totally sealed the dapper dalmatian look! (Comment if you’d like to see a DIY or outfit tutorial)

   dapper day-fall 2015_wm (5)

I can’t wait till the next dapper day in the spring where hopefully it won’t be as hot and we can spend more time there and seeing everyone’s outfits! This amazing unofficial day keeps getting bigger each year and I’m so glad I went to the Dapper Day Expo the following day to see all the lovely retro clothing lines and vintage booths! I hope you enjoyed seeing our outfits and coming along with me and Jonas in the vlog!

Bye For Now,

Lindsay’s CALIFORNIA Adventure!

Hello again! I’m so grateful for the support on my new endeavors on my last post & video!

Adventure is one of the elements of my new blog/youtube channel so I’m very excited to present my 1st travel blog/vlog: PART 1 of my trip to the US this spring…my CALIFORNIA ADVENTURE!california adventure_thumbnailFor those who don’t already know, I was born and raised in Southern California but for the past 2.5 years have been living far away in Sweden with my Nordic husband! Just this February (after a long 1+ year of green card processing) Jonas was approved to be a US resident and our move is scheduled for this summer, hurray!

We hit a snag when my best friend from high school asked me to be a bridesmaid this spring and so we decided I’d make the trip myself and go for a week and a half to CA and spend a few days in NC on my way back to Sweden (stay tuned for PART 2). This was my 3rd time visiting my family and friends in CA since moving to Sweden but my first time going alone so even though it was sad my hubby couldn’t come too I decided to make the best of it and call it a girls trip!

The first few days were just a whirlwind of celebrating Easter, shopping, and getting ready for the wedding! The rehearsal dinner was a blast and the bride and us bridesmaids got henna done, such a cool experience!

weddingWI absolutely love how the bride & groom fused elements from their Chinese and Indian heritages and added in their own flair with bright colors, nerdy motifs, and the Beatles! I’m so honored to have been apart of their beautiful wedding day!

kazi wedding (4)The day after the wedding my sister and I had planned meetups in Orange County for anyone who wanted to stop by and hang out! This was really my only opportunity to see friends since it was such a quick trip!

04-11-15 (3)Our first stop was to Old Town Orange, one of my favorite spots for lunch and antique shopping! I ALWAYS crave a turkey melt and vanilla malt from Watson’s Soda Fountain when I’ve been away from CA, so my taste buds were in heaven!

04-11-15 (2)Watson’s has been dishing up delicious dishes since 1899 and is such a cute retro diner!

Oh it was a beautiful day, the weather was just right and it was so lovely to see some of the new diamond decorations for the 60th anniversary!

04-13-15 (5)

I can never decide if I love the castle more by day or night…how about BOTH!

castleW

I was happy to find this perfect retro polka dress for my Disneyland outfit and of course rocking my Mickey Mouse Club ears!

04-13-15 (2)

I spent the better part of the day just meandering around the parks with my family and eating at all our favorite spots!

04-13-15 (7)

As night fell and the lights began to twinkle I couldn’t help but take some photos of my favorite spots.

04-13-15 (4)

The highlight of our day was seeing the music show “Mickey’s Magic Map” where Mickey as the sorcerer’s apprentice goes on this magical journey trying to discover the mystery of the map. It was the very end of the play that moved me to tears when Mickey exclaims, “LET THE JOURNEY CONTINUE!” It was one of those magical moments in life when you hear something you needed to hear just exactly at the right time.

04-13-15 (8)

Jonas & I are soon embarking on a new adventure to move to the US! Even though I’m from CA it doesn’t in any way feel like moving “back” and it actually feels completely overwhelming but I chose to look at it as a new exciting chapter! This is something we have been working hard towards and we can’t wait to make our dreams a reality though the I’m sure we’ll face many challenges along the way but what grand adventure can it be without a few good twists and turns?!

let the journey continue_blog_wm

Until next time remember, Let The Journey Continue! Bye for now,
