It's Beginning to Look a Lot like Halloween at Disneyland

Halloweentime is one of my favorite times at Disneyland! It's not exactly October yet, but Disneyland has been rolling out some of the Halloween amazingness this month as Halloweentime is now in full swing! Here's some pics from my last few visits. I plan on doing a more indepth look at the delicious Halloweentime treats so look out for that post next month! In the meantime let's get Spoopy!
Always a happy sight! It reminds me that all the Holidays are just around the corner! I love this time of year.
I love it when they deck out Main Street with all the pumpkin touches!
Even the fire department gets into the spirit!
Definitely had to get my first Disney-fied Starbucks Pumpkin Spice latte here on Main Street.
The Halloween treats are always so cute! You can find them at the Candy Palace in Disneyland, Trolley Treats in Disney California Adventure and Marceline's in Downtown Disney.
Me and my @DreamyGirlGang at DCA when the Halloween transformation was just kicking into gear.
The Cozy Cone Motel’s cones got a cute and spooky makeover!
Love these Halloweentime movie poster spoofs! Especially the Hocus Spokus (Hocus Pocus) one!
You can find some special Halloweentime treats at the Cozy Cones like a special Halloween popcorn mix and Pumpkin Spice Churros! Yum!

Love this Spoopy Carsland billboard.
Even the cars are getting into costume. I want to take this spider roadster home with me.
This Dia De Los Muertos car is so pretty!
Well that's all for now! Next time I'm going to explore as many Disney Halloweentime food options as my appetite can allow! See ya then!

Fairy Tale Houses in Los Angeles and Around Southern California

One of my most favorite past times is cute house hunting haha. I mean, who doesn't love coming upon an adorable house and dreaming about what it would be like to live there? There are so many amazing, magical houses in the Southern California area and below are a few of my favorites! I don't remember all of the addresses for these places because some I came upon by sight and some I had to hunt down using only a picture but I'll try my best.

​This is one of my favorite little gems! This house is located in the sleepy beach town of San Pedro! I don't think the owners were very happy to see me and my friend take pics because as soon as they saw us they parked their car right in front of the house, haha. I don't blame them!
​Location: 1216 S. Mesa St., San Pedro, CA

This amazing sherbet colored house can be found in Burbank right next door to the Red White and Blue house below. They were built my architect Robert Byrd who's signature style was to build birdhouses onto the roofs of his buildings. I'm not sure if these little houses have birdhouses but they do have lots of charm! I don't remember the address for these ones but they are on W Chandler Blvd between Keystone and Lamer St. and you can't miss them!

​Location: W Chandler Blvd between Keystone and Lamer st., Burbank, CA.

I came upon this cutie while driving through Whittier, CA. I really have no idea what the address is because I just happened upon it, but if you're ever in Whittier there are so many amazing houses there. The town is super cute and definitely gave me Stars Hollow, Gilmore Girl vibes!

This is my favorite house in the historic Angelino Heights area near downtown LA. The whole area is filled with amazing and grand victorians. The Charmed house and house from Michael Jackson's thriller music video are also on the same street! I gotta check this place out during Halloween!
Location: ​1344 Carroll Ave, Los Angeles, CA

Another amazing area with some great and grand houses is West Adams. This house is perfectly pink so I saved it for last because pink is my favorite color!
Location: 1007 W 24th St, Los Angeles, CA

Do you have any favorite houses that you daydream can be your one day?

Ladurée in LA!

Sweet interior of Ladurée Beverly Hills

One of my biggest dreams is to visit Paris, France and partake in the splendor that is Ladurée, home of delicious French pastries and the iconic French Macaron. Even though I still dream of going to Paris, going to Ladurée is now a dream come true here in my hometown!

Everything is just as beautiful as I thought it would be.
