Planning Your Walt Disney World Vacation

So much goes into planning a Walt Disney World vacation. This blog post could go on forever! I totally get why people devote entire blogs to all things Disney World.

I love planning and thrive while doing so. So, planning a Disney vacation is the perfect experience for me. I can’t wait to do it again!

What ticket package do you get? When’s the best time to go? Which parks should you go to and how much time should you spend there? Where should you stay? All of these are important factors to consider while planning the logistics of your trip. While many bloggers are way more experienced on this topic, I’m still going to give my personal advice. Later, I’ll be making a post about my time at each park. Keep reading and check out my other Florida travel diaries here.

Miami Heat: A Travel Diary

Miami Heat: A Travel Diary Redhead Rendezvous

Welcome to my Miami travel diary! Let me begin by saying, a day in Miami is not enough. Coming from Illinois, dipping my toes in the sand and sweating while wearing romper in January is unreal. A week in my swimsuit lounging around Miami Beach sounds ideal. Unfortunately, I had only one day to cram in a tour of Miami. To read more on my trip, you can find my Florida Keys travel diary here. Read on to find my itinerary for a day trip to Miami!

New Year Resolutions

Redhead Rendezvous New Year Resolutions

After finishing a blog post reflecting on 2016, I started to think up some goals for 2017. Goal setting is something I continuously do, and I find it helps to write it down. I did a post on my bucket list for last summer, and publishing that made me constantly think about the things I want to do. This year, my resolutions center around becoming a better, more holistic person. Here are my top five goals for the new year.

My 2016 Year in Review

Redhead Rendezvous 2016 Year in Review

I think we all can agree when I say that 2016 sucks. However, despite how horrible this year may have been, it is safe to say that it flew by. I perfectly remember ringing in 2016 at my grandma’s house with my older sister. We stayed up till 4 AM learning how to wobble (I still can’t) and watching our favorite music videos (lots of Taylor Swift). This year, I’m celebrating 2017 in Orlando. Stay tuned for travel diaries later this week.

For today’s post, I’ll be recapping my personal highlights from each month of 2016.

Anginetti: Italian Christmas Cookies

Redhead Rendezvous Anginetti: Italian Christmas Cookies

Some of my best holiday memories are the ones in my grandma’s kitchen, making Christmas cookies with her and my sister. We make the classics: thumbprints, chocolate covered peanut butter crackers, chocolate covered pretzels, and festive spritz cookies. However, this year, my grandma chose to mix it up and get in touch with our Italian roots by making all Italian cookies. Our list includes dark chocolate pizzelles, ricotta cookies, and my favorite of the bunch: anginetti–Italian lemon drop cookies.

I’m a total sucker for anything lemon flavored. These iced lemon cookies are totally delicious. They’re soft, chewy, and sweet. So, I’m making it my first food post on the blog! Read below to find our recipe for anginetti. And, if you want to read more about great Italian eats, check out my Rome and Florence travel diaries.

Stocking Stuffers for College Students

Redhead Rendezvous Stocking Stuffers for College Students

Opening your stocking is one of the best parts of Christmas. It’s like the appetizer to a delicious meal. In my last post, I shared my Christmas wish list, and now I’m here to give my suggestions for stuffing stockings.

As a college student, I really appreciate day-to-day necessities I once took for granted. Socks and underwear may be a drag to get as a gift, but now I welcome them. Nothing would make me happier than receiving things like makeup wipes, contact solution, and tooth paste. But, no one would want to read a post on the top toothpaste for your college student, so I tried to spice up my list of stocking stuffers that college students will still put to good use. Keep reading to see what I suggest putting in your college student’s stocking.

Christmas Wish List: 2016

Redhead Rendezvous Christmas Wish List: 2016

Happy holidays! Christmas season is in full swing. I love this time of year. Finals are over (find my post on how to survive them here), and my only obligations are eating Christmas cookies and watching Hallmark movies. With gift giving season here, I compiled a wish list full of my most wanted items. With my birthday falling exactly three weeks after Christmas, my wish list always doubles as my birthday list as well. Hopefully this post inspires you when shopping for friends and family, or prompts you to add some things to your own list. Keep reading to find out what I’m asking for this season.

College Survival Essentials

Redhead Rendezvous College Survival Essentials

The end of the semester is quickly wrapping up! I just wrote a post on coming home for Thanksgiving and now I’m a week away from winter break, meaning I’m almost halfway through my junior year. Finals are approaching, term papers are nearing their due dates, and every last point now counts. It’s crazy to think that in three short semesters, I’ll be done with college.

Since I’m over halfway done with my college career, by now I’ve figured out which items are absolute college essentials. I skipped basic essentials like food, water, and a bed, because that should be self-explanatory, but I also didn’t include a laptop or notebook, because that’s personal preference. (I still take notes by hand). These are simply added items that can offer benefits to your college experience. Here’s my list of everything you need to get by in college.
