On the Eve of Her 5th Birthday… | Photoshoot in Mizner Park

Well, I’m almost a month late in writing this post, but my excuse is: #itsgonnabemay. It’s truly the craziest month of the year. Yikes. But my baby girl turned 5 years old on the first of this month! I can’t believe it. It feels just yesterday that I was writing about planning #dailybocaavery’s 1st birthday party on this brand spankin new blog and stressing about themes and food and all that jazz. This year, we took it easy on ourselves (I think?) and decided to plan a trip to NYC in lieu of a birthday party. We had a great time in the city seeing Broadway shows and the sites. However, I wanted to do something local to commemorate the big 0-5! So, I enlisted the help of Naomi Phelps from Sweet Memories Photography and scheduled a little photoshoot in Mizner Park on the eve of Avery’s 5th birthday.

After a pit stop at Publix for some pink balloons (and some gusty winds), the magic really started happening with our photographer, Naomi. Check out some of my favorite shots from Sweet Memories Photography! Continue reading On the Eve of Her 5th Birthday… | Photoshoot in Mizner Park

Disney’s World of Avatar Highlights + The Dolphin’s BIG Resort Renovation

What do dolphins and banshees have in common? Well, a lot if you happen to be staying at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin AND heading to Animal Kingdom to experience all of the World of Avatar highlights for the first time ever!

World of Avatar highlights

After visiting the Walt Disney World Swan in late 2016 and learning about the multi-phase, multi-year, $140 million redesign project that planned to transform every guest room in the 758-room Swan Hotel and the 1,509-room Dolphin Hotel, I wanted to go back to check out the progress on our first trip to #visitpandora.

Have You Met Wafa? The Best Brow Services in Boca Have Arrived

When I was a fresh-faced 14 year old, a newly minted freshman at Boca High, I had scraggly (but virgin!) eyebrows. I struggle to remember them clearly, but they were just begging to be shaped. My new friend at the time, an expert in all things makeup, offered to tweeze them in true late nineties fashion: THIN. They were on trend for awhile, but now I think most of us late 90’s/early 2000’s teenagers regret our eyebrow grooming decisions back then. Luckily there are rehab centers…brow services in Boca that can help get our eyebrows back up to snuff through professional shaping or microblading. And I want to introduce you to the best! Wafa’s Brow Art & Skincare.

Cruising on the Disney Wonder with a Preschooler: Hit or Miss?

Is a Disney Cruise for preschoolers? That was the question I seriously asked myself as I accepted Disney’s wonderful invite to the 2017 Social Media Moms Celebration. I mean, CLEARLY Walt Disney World parks are perfect for preschoolers (as we took complete and utter advantage of our annual passes in 2016).

But a cruise? And without my mom for travel backup? I figured we’d take a chance and give it a shot anyways…
