I’m not sure if you’re aware (I wasn’t until recently) but “Disney prohibits anyone over the age of 14 from sporting a costume in its parks, because it has the potential to infringe on the official characters that Disney employs”. (Thank you Refinery 29). I actually dated a former cast member handler for a while, and he told me I’d be a shoe-in for Alice/ Tinkerbelle, so I guess I can see this. However, you can Disneybound.

If you’ve never heard of the term Disneybound, let me educate you really fast. Starting on Tumblr in 2012 and becoming a mainstream concept since, it’s essentially creating outfits inspired by your favorite Disney characters, be it from a movie, ride, what have you. You can check out the original blog here.

I actually get kind of annoyed at adults that are SO OBSESSED with Disney. Like, yeah, Kendall and I call our apartment Pride Rock and I’d like to go to Disneyworld for my 30th birthday but some of it is all just cliché to me. I’m just not a huge fan of the actual Disney princesses. I was kind of fond of Aurora from Sleeping Beauty because of her dress that changed colors at the end, but really, until the mid/ late 90s the princesses were almost totally useless. Incidentally, my sister’s favorite princesses were Pocahontas and Jasmine- two of the less damsel-y options.

I said it before on Little Bitty City One, but the animals were really what I loved. Especially the cats. Oliver & Company, A Goofy Movie, Aristocats, Lion King… those were my favorites! (Alice in Wonderland too but again, not a princess.) I also dragged my Grandaddy and Gramma Dee around Epcot until I found a stuffed Figaro from Pinocchio to bring home with me in 4th grade.

The reason why I wanted to Disneybound my girl Marie is that I think she best mirrors me. She’s small and sassy, looks great in pink, is kind of a show-off, and doesn’t like to be told what to do. She’s also a bit of a whiner and a mama’s girl.  Yup. I’m Marie.

If you were a Disney character, which one do you think you’d be?

I’ve been kind of mushing about Valentine’s Day for a couple of weeks now, and I’m so thrilled that January is finally over and February is here. This month, it’s Kendall’s birthday, Valentine’s Day, my shower/ bachelorette party, and my dad’s birthday. And no leap-year this year (I just checked) so February is going to fly. Clearly, I had to do a pink on pink on pink theme for this month’s wish list!

  1. One of my favorite perfumes now comes in PINK. Didn’t think the bottle could be any cuter than the original but here’s MOSCHINO Moschino Pink Fresh Couture.
  2. My bridesmaids poo-pooed the kate spade new york Lotus Slip-On Sneaker as a wedding shoe, but they all agreed that the classic car nod to my granddaddy would be cute for the rehearsal dinner or after party.
  3. I just got a new phone. (RIP 6s) Maybe a cute new Portable Charger to go with it?
  4. The reviews for Too Faced Glow Job Radiance-Boosting Glitter Face Mask aren’t stellar, but between the cheeky name and the fact there’s glitter in it I think it would be fun to try. I’m also very into (probably because of the packaging) their:
  5. Diamond Light Multi-Use Diamond Fire Highlighter and
  6. Love Flush Long-Lasting 16-Hour Blush
  7. Rox got a Baby G watch in a review box and I was reminded how the cool girl freshman year of high school had one. Especially loving the BABY-G G-Shock ‘Ana-Digi’ Resin Watch.
  8. Totally typical Caro. Halogen + ruffles- Halogen Velvet Ruffle Top.
  9. Honestly I’d never given Ted Baker bags much of a though until I snagged the perfect black tote from the Nordstrom sale a couple years ago but their bags are stunning! Super into this extra af Icon Faux-Pearl and Crystal Large Tote.
  10. The Sadie sunnies in pink on pink have be discontinued so they’re under $10!
  11. Let’s honest, this Free People Bell Sleeve Swing Dress is going to be a hit or miss. I’m def going to order to try it on though!
  12. Between Etsy, Picmonkey, and Zazzle, I have DIYed quite a bit for my wedding. This includes stationary of all kind and t-shirts for my bachelorette party/ getting ready on the big day. This Mrs. Price Sweatshirt is my most recent creation and I feel like even though it is somehow extra and basic, I kind of need it.

What’s on your February wish list?

As I said in my Valentines for her post, I know I’m in the minority of most of the women I know when I say I actually LOVE heart-shaped jewelry. Hear me out on this, guys. Heart shaped jewelry is fun af. In my humble opinion, the kitschier the better. If you’re going to be wearing it at all, why make it subtle?

Heart shaped jewelry is also iconic, thanks to a little movie called Titanic that is essentially about this one heart shaped diamond- am I right or am I right? Heck, even our girl Britney made a reference to that big, beautiful rock and you really can’t get more iconic than that.

Here’s the main thing though. I like it. And so I will continue wearing it. I’m sure there are girls out there that feel the same. But there are also people who tweet things like:

…and I respectfully decline their opinion. That’s fine they don’t have to wear it or gift it. Tacky is in the eye of the beholder. But I’m here to bring you heart shaped jewelry that I think is adorable and fun and perfect for this season of love.

I tried to pretend to hate Valentine’s Day for years- but pink and hearts is kind of my jam, as is any excuse to buy presents for the people I love. I think I’m one of the few girls who actually loves heart-shaped jewelry, honestly. When I tagged along with my friend Tiffany to have her ring cleaned before I was engaged, the jeweler and I discussed a future ring of my own. At one point, I wanted a heart-shaped engagement ring… until this guy I dated before Kendall told me they were tacky and TO THIS DAY it bothers me that he brought up rings on our second date and then poo-pooed my preference. Anyway, the jeweler had me try on a couple super fancy halo settings and I discovered that they were far too fussy for me, but that my original preference for the heart-shaped just said that I was a hopeless romantic at heart.

Luckily, my Kendall is too- and he knows what I love. Let’s not forget that my ring is rose gold and morganite. My engagement ring is pink. #justcarolinethings.

So you can see, this is kinda really my day. I think Valentine’s Day has the absolute cutest gifts to give for her. Galentines, girlfriends, moms, sisters…everyone deserves a little something to remind them that they’re loved.

I should have seen it coming. Our director came in after the holidays grumbling and sneezing and coughing and generally miserable because his kids got him sick. The poor guy. I’m not really supposed to talk about my company on my blog but I will say this- these guys work hard, long hours and travel constantly, so they can’t really let anything slow them down. So, Big Boss came to work sick for the majority of the week. I even picked him up some chamomile tea because it was so sad to hear him try to talk (and because he requested it for the next grocery delivery- which would have been two weeks away).

But yes I should have seen it coming. Between Big Boss’s cold and the cold I seem to have come down with something/ back down with something because since this cold snap I haven’t felt altogether healthy. Sniffles, sneezes, chills, and a cough that won’t quit. I was face timing with Kendall on Thursday and after like 20 minutes of hacking, he insisted that I make myself a cup of tea.

My mom is a huge tea drinker and my dad drinks several cups of coffee a day, so I grew up with quite the collection of mugs. This is also due, in large part, to my mom being a teacher who’s students knew she loved tea and would gift her mugs. Plus me working at Pier 1 and bringing home clearance mugs that caught my eye. I do NAHT drink out of plain mugs thank you very much. I even keep two at work that are very Caroline and very mine and I dare anyone to use them. I’ve even started selling mugs in my Etsy shop!

I like to see my coffee and tea as a ritual, especially since learning about hygge last year. Something to help me start the day, break up an afternoon, or settle me before bed. Therefore, I think it’s imperative to drink out of something that makes you happy. How do you take your coffee or tea?
