When you wish upon a star...

So on Thursday I am going to Walt Disney World for a vacation and I could not be more excited. I am not one of those Disney people, but I am definitely a HUGE fan! Since I have the wonderful world of Disney on my brain, I thought I would do a post dedicated to it.

One of the places least seen in the hustle and bustle of the Walt Disney World resort, is Cinderella's Castle Suite. It is located on the fourth floor of the castle, and is decorated in 17th century decor.

To be chosen to stay in the castle suite, you basically have to be in the right place at the right time. You may be the 75th person to walk through the 5th turnstile at Disney's Hollywood Turnstile. Basically the time and place is always really random, and if you happen to be at the right place at the right time, then it is your lucky day! The person who is chosen, and their family, is about to receive the royal treatment. They will receive the following...

1. A one-night stay in Cinderella's Castle
2. The opportunity to be the Grand Marshall's in the 3:00pm parade
3. Complimentary dinner at the Round Table
4. Two extra hours in Magic Kingdom after it closes
5. A wake up call from her majesty, Cinderella.

The outside is stunning, day or night, but just wait until you see the inside...

Here is the door leading to the castle suite.

Here is the parlor. That couch folds out into a bed for additional sleeping room.

Fireplace and TV. The television is actually a 'magical' two-way mirror!

What do you think the odds of me being in the right place at the right time are when I am down at the Happiest Place on Earth? There are other ways to win yourself a night's stay, but I think that I will just test my luck!
 Hopefully the odds will be in my favor, and I can report back with magical pictures of my own!!

So my love for BravoTv is absolutely no secret. The whole channel is so fabulous that I couldn't pick just one TV show to showcase. From all of the Real Housewives to the newly returned Rachel Zoe project, the shows keep getting better and better. And I become more and more addicted. The style of BravoTV is pretty classy, in comparison to other current television channels, and I thought that it deserved its own blog post! Below are some of my FAVORITE shows on Bravo!

Bethenny Getting Married?
 Bethenny's life is so amazing and I am glad that Bravo decided to give her her own TV series. It has been really great to get to watch her and all of her experiences in this chapter of her life.

Bethenny's style has turned party girl/NYC socialite to glamorous/classy wife and mother.

What a beautiful family!

But she is still a busy business woman, too!

What will Bethenny do next?

Rachel Zoe Project
Even though she is a little cooky- I still love the Rachel Zoe Project. I like to see all of her celebrity clients, the amazing clothes and I just love her Brad :). The Zhush blog did a whole tribute to Rachel's return, go check it out!

Here she is in her personal closet. Amazing!

Just Precious!

Here are Rachel and some of her celebrity clients...

Real Housewives of New Jersey
I can think of one word to sum up the RHONJ... Drama. Nevertheless, it is a guilty pleasure of mine. The women are full of drama, but they have some pretty fabulous homes and clothing. I just cant help but be addicted!

I have many other favorites, too! What are your favorite shows on BravoTV?

Can you believe that it is already August? With summer winding down and temperatures reaching record highs, just about everyone is thinking of ways to cool down. Here are my top 3 favorite (and fabulous) ideas of how to cool down in this heat.

1. The beach. ahhh doesn't it just sounds amazing right now? My personal favorite beach is the fabulous coast of Fort Lauderdale, Fl. The white sands and blue water are to die for. And the people watching and trend spotting is so fun, too!

2. Schlitterbahn. America's favorite water park happens to be in our backyard! Now, there are 3 different Schlitterbahn locations, but my personal favorite is the one in the beautiful Texas hill country. Schlitterbahn New Braunfels welcomes nearly 900,000 guests annually!

3. Floating the river. Up in the hill countries, not too far from schlitterbahn, are some cool rivers that many Texans like to float on a hot summer day. The Guadalupe river is a personal favorite of mine, and so relaxing and fun!

When doing all of these fun summer activities, you cant forget the clothes! Bathing suits, shorts, and cotton are all a MUST in this ridiculous weather. Here are some of my favorites..

This two-piece with matching cover-up by Lily Pulitzer is a must have. Not only will you be staying cool, but you will be doing it in style!

And every fabulous beach outfit needs a fabulous, over sized hat! This look is channeling Samantha Jones, but you can find alike looks at Target and Macy's.

This bright and fun Vera Bradley towel will look great with any summer outfit!

What will you be wearing to keep cool?
