Simply Disney: What to Bring to Disneyland

Happy Monday readers!

Vacation so far has been incredible (Santa Barbara is like California’s version of heaven) but I’ll share pictures and stories about SB when we get home. Since we’re headed to Disneyland tomorrow, I thought it’d be fun to share my must-haves for a day at the Happiest Place on Earth (Take it from someone who goes 1-5 times a year) ! Introducing my newest segment:

Waterbottle/Sunglasses/Sweater/Ring /Hat/Clinique/Rainbows

7 things you need for a great day at the park in warm weather:

– A Light Sweater – You need one you can bother carrying all day but perfect for the occasionally cold Anaheim nights.

– Comfortable Shoes – I love the comfort my broken-in Rainbow flip flops but others might suggest running shoes or something with a thick sole since you do a ton of standing/walking.

– Disney Swag – This 7 dwarfs ring is AMAZING. But a simple red minnie bow or sweet Mickey ears count too. Or get a free pin at City Hall if you’re celebrating something! *Free alert*

– Refillable Waterbottle – As everyone knows Disneyland is expensive. Drinking free water from the restaurants or water fountains can save a pretty penny!

– Sunglasses – In the Southern California sun, sunglasses are just as functional as they are stylish.

– Sunblock – I’m Filipino so I rarely EVER burn but the only place in my life I have burned is at Disneyland when my nose peeled for 2 weeks straight. I cannot live through summer or Disneyland without my Clinique Cityblock!

– Hat – Any hat will do but make sure you feel comfortable sticking it in a ride’s tiny velcro bag if you plan on going on rides like Space Moutain or Screamin California.

There are plenty more extras to bring to enhance your visit (snacks, a change of clothes, a million dollars) but my list covers the bare necessities! I can’t wait to snap some photos at Disneyland tomorrow so follow me on instagram (Egatsby88) or Twitter (SimplyEvani) to follow along! 🙂

Happy Memorial Day everyone! Take a moment to thank any and all armed forces for their service to our country!

Simply Wearing: Picnic Day

Happy Friday readers!

I am SO excited for UC Davis Picnic Day! I graduated from UC Davis in 2010 and I am a staunch Aggie through and through. Every year in the spring, Davis holds Picnic Day which is a huge event where family, alumni and students come to Davis to celebrate our rich history. It has been known to get a little wild in the past (usually with out of town party go-ers ruining it for us!) but overall it’s such a wonderful day to celebrate school pride! GO AGS!

Because it marks the beginning of spring quarter, these are key wardrobe pieces for a fun celebration in the warm 90 degree California weather:

For those of you going to Picnic Day this weekend, I hope I see you! Please remember to drink responsibly and be respectful of the campus and town. We love Picnic Day and I would love for it to go on for many years to come!

Here are some Fun Friday DIYs to do this weekend!

I want an iPad just to make this!

I could not be more obsessed with Oh Happy Day!

The things she can do with friendship bracelet string!

The Party Planner in me is screaming YES!

Have a great weekend everyone!
