Avila Beach & San Luis Obispo

Ah yes, two of my favorite places in the San Luis Obispo County. Although I don’t have as many photos for this post, I think you’ll enjoy it nonetheless. First things first. Continue reading “Avila Beach & San Luis Obispo”

Arroyo Grande

You know those little farm towns that seem to be scattered throughout random cities all over? I’m sure you do. On the central coast, there’s a small town called Arroyo Grande, and that’s our little farm land. Arroyo Grande, or as the locals call it “AG” (referred to as a nickname, and conveniently AG for Agriculture), is a small but charming little area. Continue reading “Arroyo Grande”

Pismo Beach

It’s kind of funny, what people say is true. You don’t always appreciate things until they’re gone and you’ve lived without them. In this sense, I’m referring to my hometown in the San Luis Obispo County. Continue reading “Pismo Beach”

Catching Up

Hello there!

Although it may seem that I have been absent on here recently, let me assure you that I’m not forgetting about posting on here, or intentionally leaving you hanging.

Quite the contrary. Continue reading “Catching Up”

My Spring Bucket List for 2018!

Hello, lovely readers!

It’s already April, which means Spring has arrived! Or for some of us, we’re still waiting for the official Spring weather through rain and snow.

Nonetheless, I believe that a Spring bucket list is necessary to help plan a great Spring time. I think we enjoy Spring so much because it’s like a premature Summer.

Even though it’s like Summer, it’s still not fully there yet which can be hard to try to find things to do.

So! I’ve put together a little list to help make your Spring more fun, eventful, and memorable! Let’s get right into it: Continue reading “My Spring Bucket List for 2018!”

Staying at the Disneyland Hotel!

Here we go everyone, the first of many Disneyland blog posts! I’m so excited to share my experience with you all. Kolani and I had such an incredible trip, it was honestly so perfect and dreamy and I can’t stop reliving it. So to kick things off, I’m going to share with you our experience staying at the Disneyland hotel.

We had a late flight, which led us to arrive at the hotel via an Uber at 2 am. Even though we were exhausted, I couldn’t get over the fact that we were actually there.

Kolani and I had been talking about going to Disneyland almost since we first started dating. What I love most about Disneyland is how themed everything is; it’s really another world down there and sweeps you away from reality.

Walking into the hotel, you’ll find spacious seating and very helpful front desk associates. There’s also different themed towers like the different lands in the park (ex. the Adventureland Tower). Kolani & I stayed in the Frontierland Tower, which was the southern most wing, located just behind the pool.

There were two things I absolutely loved about our hotel room: the windows and the bed/headboard. (I apologize in advance for the emojis and the text on the picture above, I forgot to save the picture before those edits). Okay, but get this, as some of you may have seen on my Instagram story, there were two switches on the lamp that was on the right nightstand. One obviously turned on the lamp, while the other would light the headboard (as seen above) and play a sweet music box rendition of a Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes. When I discovered this, I burst into giggles. I mean seriously, how cool is that?! I think we had way too much fun switching it on and off, we even danced to it at one point.

The second thing I loved about our stay is the fact that we were booked into a corner room. If you’re staying in a city, I feel like it’s a must to reserve a corner room in order to get a spectacular view. During the day, the sunshine would flood in and at night, you could see all the lights and palm trees of Anaheim.

Kolani and I loved lounging in our Disneyland hotel bathrobes too. We were such kids feeling like grown ups, the bathrobes gave us an extra dose of vacation vibes.

Within the vicinity of the four towers of the hotel were incredible restaurants, and of course we tried a few, but the food reviews are going to be in other posts.

If you’re planning a trip to Disneyland, I would definitely recommend this hotel. One, because it’s a great place, and two, because of all the perks! If you stay at any of the Disneyland hotels, you are then automatically apart of Magic Morning.

What is Magic Morning Chloe?

Well, I’m so glad you asked, reader.

Magic Morning is this incredible luxury that only Disneyland hotel guests receive. Exclusively for those few only, hotel guests are able to access the park ONE HOUR EARLY before it opens to the public! However both parks alternate magic mornings on either days, meaning that both parks are not open for Magic Morning on the same day. On the Friday that we were there, California Adventure had the Magic Morning, and on Saturday, Disneyland had it.

This really helped us and saved our butts during our trip because we literally walked on to almost every ride. Given, Fast Passes and Max Passes were also a HUGE help with that too, but we’ll get into that later.

I’m going to be going into more detail about Magic Morning, Fast Passes, Max Passes and much much more! So make sure you’re signed up on the email list to receive notifications on future blogs posts!

This has been a chloscall.

Until next time,

Chloe.

La La Land Live!

`February 14th, 2018 was Kolani and I’s second Valentine’s Day together. This year, he surprised me with tickets to the Seattle Symphony to see La La Land live at Benaroya Hall! I was so beyond excited, La La Land is one of my favorite movies of all time, and I couldn’t wait to go to the symphony.

Processed With Darkroom

Neither of us had been to Benaroya Hall before, and I was blown away as soon as we walked inside. They have a restaurant, a coffee shop, and a gift shop before you enter the actual music hall. The symphony is so visually stunning, I couldn’t stop staring at the architecture.

On the way into the hall, we walked past an open garage door and overheard some musicians rehearsing. We peered around the corner and learned that they were warming up for the La La Land concert! We got a quick little picture with them, and it’s honestly one of my favorite photos of us now.

We had AMAZING seats, I couldn’t have been happier with how everything panned out. The staff was friendly and there was a restroom and a bar on our tier level too! Another awesome bonus is that you could pre-order drinks for intermission-order them before the show, and they’ll be ready for you to enjoy at intermission, you won’t need to spend those 20 short minutes waiting in line for refreshments!

We had such a wonderful time, it was such a treat to watch the movie in such an incredible place, and hearing the music live was beautiful beyond words. The music in La La Land is indescribable and perhaps underrated.

I can’t wait to go back and see another show soon, we had such a lovely, magical Valentine’s Day.

This has been a chloscall.

Until next time,

Chloe.
