2017 D23 Expo: The Ultimate Disney Fan Event

I recently attended the D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA. It was pure chaos but so much fun. This was my first time attending and so I didn’t know what to expect really.

Here is a recap of some of the highlights from the D23 Expo as told from this first-time attendee. Read more…

Prepare to Be Blown Away by this Beauty Bar

I’ve seen so many drybars popping up around Orange County and have always wondered what they were all about.
