Disney Cruisin: To Palo or Not to Palo? That is the Question.

An alternative to your scheduled dining rotation, you can book a private table at Palo, a reservation only, dress to impress restaurant option available on the each of the Disney Cruise line fleet. Located on the top deck of each ship, Palo boasts ocean views from nearly every table, thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows and the dining room’s semi-circular design. On the Disney Dream and the Disney Fantasy, you have the option to dine al fresco—and bask in the fresh ocean breezes—on the private outdoor teak deck. We were aboard the Disney Wonder this trip. Everyone we talked to, raved about

Disney Nature’s Born in China

Disney’s got a blockbuster list of movies coming out this year. From the highly anticipated retelling of the classic Beauty and the Beast with the ever appropriately cast and talented Emma Watson to fan favorite Cars 3, one not to count out is Disneynature’s Born in China. I recently, as part of the invite-only Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, was privy to a preview of this amazing documentary as well participate in a Q&A with the director, Roy Conli. Anyone who knows me would not be surprised that I know little about my own homeland. Despite being Chinese, I was NOT

My Scrub Love with Landau Uniforms

Scrubs are a part of my life. Working in labor and delivery as a nurse or even on the floor as a nurse practitioner student paired with my lab coat, I love and live in my scrubs. I love that mentally I don’t have to think about what I’m wearing that day. It’s a simple functional uniform that makes things super easy for this busy busy mom, student and nurse. Unfortunately in my RN role, I am often in the operating room and with that I have hospital issued scrubs which are not the most comfortable. They are stiff, rough

What is Coming to America’s Largest Indoor Waterpark @kalahariresorts

Only a 1.5 hour ride outside of New York City, and tucked away in what I can only describe as a beautifully landscaped and very secluded property, is one of the largest indoor water parks in America, Kalahari Resorts & Conventions. Having never been to an indoor water park, we were excited to see what the hype was all about and after our stay last weekend, I think it’s safe to say our family has found a perfect slice of summer in the middle of a long New York winter. Kalahari Resorts & Conventions opened their Pennsylvanian doors in 2015 and

LONDON Kid Eats!

You’ve gotta EAT! In addition to sightseeing and shopping, you’ve got to immerse yourself in the food in London. Having only been in London for a total of 4.25 days, we didn’t get the full experience I would have liked and of course I was travelling with a 9 year old with a very particular palate. We took a slightly different approach to eating in London that many might have gone a different route… but it worked for us! Since my daughter’s favorite foods are things like chicken nuggets, fries and mac and cheese, I knew there was going to

LONDON: Getting Around

If you’re planning on staying pretty central to London, I wouldn’t suggest renting a car for the following reasons: Unless you’re comfortable driving on the other side of the road, its best not to learn on the busy streets of London. Drivers are pretty aggressive with tight turns and closely following people on bikes and cards. Traffic can be insane at times in London All you really need is an Oyster card! For first time visitors to London, I really found doing a Hop On Hop Off Bus Tour bus a great way to get a quick overview of the

LONDON: Shopping!

I’m not going to deny it. I had an entire shopping plan laid out. Interspersed between sightseeing and eating, I thought of all the cool London designers. My goal was to acquire the perfect souvenirs from our trip and things that I could not get in the US. I mean really, shopping is an intricate part of visiting London. My list started as such: Harrods Selfridges Reiss Hamley’s Toy Shop Burberry Factory Outlet Boxpark Radleys With neighborhoods to explore like: Covent Garden Camden Market Picadilly Circus Regent Street Oxford Street Bond Street VAT – VALUE ADDED TAX The first think
