Follow me to: The BEST Disney Theme park (Disney Sea)

IMG_0451

Hello Lovelies!!

Earlier this year I travelled to Tokyo, Japan and one of the stops we made was Disney Sea. I have been to all the parks at Disney world except for animal kingdom and I am season pass holder of Disneyland in LA.. The only thing you need to know is that Disney Sea is by far the best Disney park I’ve been to.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI didn’t go to Disneyland mainly because we didn’t have time and it wasn’t really a priority to begin with. Disney Sea was a must go for me and it is soooo worth the visit. Its so pretty and the place is truly magical. The Japanese comes decked out in disney gear making me feel underdressed. There is a specific train that you take into the Disney park area and the tickets are sold at the shopping plaza area after you exit the Maihama Station.

The Ride that you must go to is called Center of the Earth. The style of the ride is like Radiator Spring at California where its a scenic tour at first then it speeds up. And the other one that was really unique in theme was the called the “Raging Spirit” (photographed above). It was a really short ride (reminds me of the Goofys Sky School in CA Adventure) but more thrilling and cool!

Being the foodie that I am I probably stopped at every food vendor cart that was there.. and guess what.. they all have different things! I definitely recommend the popcorn because that stuff has crack in it or something because its so addicting. Throughout the park each popcorn cart is a different flavor. Milk Tea, Strawberry, Caramel.. and I think thats it. At least those are the ones I was able to hunt down.

If you go to Tokyo and have adequate time to visit the park and choose not to then you’re crazy because it is definitely worth the visit. Here are some other photos just to give you a feel of how beautiful the park was.

Summer Trip – Makeup

For the Summer travel series.. lets start with makeup!

 

Image

I am determined to travel as light as possible on this trip. Mainly because I’m not going for that many days so there is no need to overpack. With makeup, I have placed everything in a clear plastic cosmetic baggie that was a freebie from Shiseido. I chose a clear bag because if I’m going to be sharing a room with other girls, most likely their going to bring their makeup as well. To prevent me from sprawling all my products on the counter I can just leave everything in the bag and not have to take it out because I see everything inside already! Saving space and time from when it comes time to pack and leave.

  • MAC – Style Frost blush (since we’re going to be out in the sun, I wanted a more orangey/coral blush)
  • NYC blushable Creme Stick – Urban Spice (bronzing stick to fake that bronzed look before I get my own natural tan. ahah I’m actually not sure if this was discontinued)
  • Lioele – Beyong the Solution BB Cream (didn’t want to take a foundation with me because I probably won’t want to wear any. But this BB cream will work for day and night because theres no SPF. During the day I will have to put on something with higher SPF anyway so bringing a BB cream/Foundation with SPF in it wouldn’t do much good as to how versatile the product will be.
  • PUR – 4-1 Pressed mineral Makeup – Light (Instead of bringing my regular powder, bringing a mineral powder or powder foundation is great for when you’re on vacation. It gives you the option of being lazy and not have to fuss over your face makeup in the morning. This PUR mineral face makeup gives good enough coverage to cancel out redness and minimize the looks of pores. If you want fuller coverage then simply use a concealer with it and TA-DA light make up for a beach day.
  • NARS – Orgasm Illuminator – (Gorgeous highlighter to use with a sun kissed complexion.)
  • Physicians Formula- Conceal RX – Natural Light (Since both my face makeup is not very high in coverage, of course I need to compensate by bringing a higher coverage concealer for when I want to be more made up … like for dinner or something)

  • Physicians Formula Eye BOOSTER Eyeliner – ( Pretty self explanatory, my fave liquid liner right now so of course it would be my eyeliner of choice to bring on a trip.)
  • Covergirl – Liquilineblast – Black – (For the most dramatic eye look, a pencil liner is a must)
  • Majolica Majorca – Lash Enamel Glamorous Volume On Mascara – Black ( since I’m going somewhere thats going to be hot hot HOT! I am definitely brining a mascara that will stay put)
  • Urban Decay – Eyeshadow Primer Potion
  • Glitter Liner –  (just for fun, might not even use it. BUT if I get the chance to use it on a night out then I definitely will.)
  • Sonia Kashuk – Tongue in Cheek – 15  (used for a more sultry night time look)

  • Too Cool for School – Party Time (I bought this in Korea and I have no idea what the color name is. But I love this for day time and just bring with me for on the go because there is the cream shadow base on the bottom and two shadow colors that I use on a daily basis on top. Its compact so its perfect for traveling.)

  • MAC – Mineralize Eyeshadow – Fresh & Mint – (Fun colors that can be pulled off during vacationing by the beach with a pop of blue/pink on the lower lash line. )

Summer trip

When do you guys go on your summer trip? Beginning, middle, or end? I personally like going at the end of summer probably because thats when my family usually goes.. and because its my birthday month!

Usually we take a family trip to Vegas because 1. I live in LA 2. I’m chinese so my family like to gamble! We’ve been going to Vegas for my birthday for as long as I can remember. Funny enough though, my 21st birthday was the last time we went as a family along with my friends and thats gotta be one of the most fun Vegas trips I’ve had.

Image

For this year though, I had the option of continuing the tradition and do a Vegas trip again or do something more adventurous, more out of my comfort zone. I’m the type that likes familiarity. The unknown kinda scares me. BUT I have decided this year to go to Los Cabos, Mexico.

Originally I intended this to be a girls trip with a bunch of my girl friends but as we’re all grown up now and have responsibilities most of the girls were unable to go. So its only going to be my best friend and one of my cousins. Even though its only going to be the 3 of us, its still going to be a blast 😀

Image

Doesn’t that just looks ahmazing?! I can’t wait to be able to relax and just chill by the poolside. I have a insane schedule for the next coming months and I’m going to take advantage of this trip to relax because the next time I’m going to actually have a break is probably in Jan. Seems so far from now but I bet its going to fly by.

So, for the next couple of post I’m going to go off on the whole Summer Vacation theme and show you guys what I’m bringing with me on this trip (make up, travel essentials, carryon, clothes, etc) what ever comes to mind when I’m packing.

Have you guys taken your Summer Trip yet? What are some helpful traveling tips?
