Move over Bejeweled, I got a new game app.

Disney lovers have you heard of Tsum Tsum (ツムツム)? It's a popular free Japanese game app that recently became available to play in the United States. I admit that I am hooked on it. It's a simple game with super cute Disney characters that children and adults will enjoy. The goal in each game is to create the longest character chain which will give you more points, but a chain of 3 will also suffice. Collect coins to purchase bonuses or special boxes which contains a random character, each with a different skill that you can use to to help you with your game.

If you can't get enough of the game you might find yourself collecting the stuffed toys! Although these are a little harder to obtain since not ever Disney store carries it. Be sure to give your local Disney store a call to see if they have it, otherwise you can always purchase it online. If you are lucky and live in Japan, they have character plushies such as in Alice in Wonderland, the seven dwarfs, Oswald and more that the U.S. does not have available. They even have Anna, Elsa and Olaf Tsum Tsum in the game with various skills.

Throwback Thrusday: Wizarding World of Harry Potter

This is summer is all about Harry Potter. It's a very exciting time for fans of the series because of the Diagon Alley expansion at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios Orlando opening to the public on July 8, 2014. That's about 3 weeks away! And across the pacific in the land of the rising sun, the version 1 of Wizarding World of Harry Potter will open at Universal Studios Japan on July 15, 2014. Not to be out done by the original Harry Potter park, you can definitely expect to find some new features in Japan that you won't be able to find in Florida. Such as the Black Lake outside of the castle, take a peak inside the Hogwarts Express and have your photo taken with the beautiful interior design, and the restrooms are designed after the ones in the films. If you are a Harry Potter fan like me, definitely check out both theme parks if you get the chance.

This post is a throwback post when I went to the original Wizarding World back when it opened the summer of 2010. One of the most magical time in my life. Just as magical as visiting a Disney theme park, but with it's own charm.

Mom! I made it to Hogsmeade.
 The snowy rooftops of Hogsmeade
 Inside Honeydukes
 Some edible chocolate wands
 This place will bring out the child and your sweet tooth with all the fun colors
 Chocolate frogs and with famous wizard cards found inside

 The owl post is a resting area and you can send a post card stamped with the official postmark
 The restroom was next to this and you can hear Moaning Myrtle while doing your business
 Hogs Head is where you can get butterbeer and real beer
 Voices kept coming from this area
 Mmmm frozen butterbeer. You can get 2 types the regular carbonated one or the frozen. Buy the mug and get $0.85 refills around the park.

 Mandatory photo with Hogswart castle
 The attraction inside Ollivanders wand shop
 The Three Broomsticks won't serve alcohol to even minor wizards

That's all for now stay sweet!

MAC's Maleficent True Love's Kiss

"Lips that shame the red red rose". - Sleeping Beauty
I wanted to rock red lips again after watching Maleficent last night.
This color is called True Love's Kiss from the Maleficent collection released by MAC. I didn't really need another red lipstick since I have another color very similar to this, but I love the finish of this which is something I do not have in my arsenal of lipsticks. I tend to shy away any sort of sheen, gloss or anything that emphasize my lips more on an already bold color because my lips are naturally full. By wearing a bold lipstick color the attention is already on my lips, no gloss or sheen is needed. However, True Love's Kiss has a slight "quiet" sheen that I thought I would not like but I love it!
This one is a keep for me.
