"...The Salt in the Air and the Sand at My Feet."

Beach Road TripFashion Trends & Styles - Polyvore

Beach Road Trip by angellwings featuring Old Navy 

Make that tank top purple and put the spots in the shape of a heart and you've got my outfit for tomorrow! 

I'm going to the beach tomorrow. I'm leaving early in the morning with my mom and my friend Holly. We're going to get there, buy groceries for the room, and then my dad and brother's family will be joining us later in the day.  I'm very excited about this trip! 

Holly and I will essentially be on a seperate vacation from the rest of my family. I'm driving my car so we get to go where ever we want to go. We've decided on two things. 

1) We're having lunch at Margaritaville one day. Our parents (hers or mine) will NEVER eat there so we're going to. (We also want to eat at Planet Hollywood one day).

2) We're going to Mayfest where I will hopefully be meeting Tiffany Thornton from Sonny with a Chance. I've got my camera charged and ready to go. I'll be the oldest non-parent or sibling in the line to meet her but that's okay. :) I'm also hoping to meet Jasmine Richards (from Camp Rock) if I can get through Tiffany's line fast enough. (Also I'm not sure how it will work but at the same tent, at the same time will be Debby Ryan and Nathan Kress. So I might meet them as well!)

So, those will be the highlights of my trip and I might film them with the Flip (if I can convince Holly to stand in line with me at Mayfest that is.)

Anyway I'll be back on Monday so that I can start work! YAY! I'll be working Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, and I'll be shadowing the Ad Sales director for two local magazines on Wednesday. So, next week will be very busy! 

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend! I know I will! I'll tell you guys all about it when I get back! 

Until next time, have a magical day!

Let's Talk Summer...Jobs

So, if you follow me on Twitter or if you're my friend on Facebook you know about my summer job troubles. I started applying for summer jobs at the end of March, and in total I applied for 17 jobs. I work at a daycare during the school year and I wanted to do something different so applied to restaurants and retail stores. I was hoping to sort of know what I was doing before I get to Disney as I've never worked retail.

But alas, that was not to be. I heard from Target. They said they had nothing to offer me at the moment. Then I was told by Texas Land and Cattles employment recruiter to go by the restaurant and fill out an application in person so that I could meet the manager (only to get there and be greeted by one nice hostess and one MEAN hostess.) The e-mail said to go by any day of the week from 2-4. The only day I could go by was Friday, and I got there filled out an application and was told that the managers only meet people Tuesday through Thursday (and that they would NOT be happy if they had to stop and talk to me) in a VERY RUDE tone. So I told the mean hostess to forget it and just take my application.

I left knowing that I wouldn't be getting a job there (even though I was certain I'd be a better hostess than EITHER of the ones they had).

As for the other 15 jobs...I never heard a thing. I never even got an official rejection from any of them. So I came home from school with no summer job. I had planned on having a job long before I got home, but that didn't work out. So my roommate said she had a profile on this website called and that she had just gotten some babysitting jobs off of it, and Sharon (my career development HERO) told me I should just take it easy this summer and look for odd jobs and I thought babysitting would be the best odd job for me. So I went on and made a profile. I immediately found a job with a family that seemed very convenient. I applied for it, and then got an e-mail about calling to set up a meeting. I met with the family, and now I've got a job!

I'm very excited about it! I start a week from today! I get $10 an hour and I'll be working at least 20 hours a week! I'll be able to save money for Disney AND pay off my credit card balance! YAY!

Also, I've had since May 5th off to do what I please. I've been shopping (too much) and hanging out with friends. It's been awesome. This is my last week of having nothing to do and so I'm enjoying it. I have friends coming over tonight, another friend coming over Wednesday, and in the mean time I'm cleaning and packing for the beach. That's right the BEACH. I'm going to Myrtle Beach this weekend in the hopes of meeting Tiffany Thornton (Sonny with a Chance) and Jasmine Richards (Camp Rock/Camp Rock 2) on Saturday (I might meet Nathan Kress [iCarly] and Debby Ryan [Suite Life on Deck] too.) There might be too much of a mob for me to meet them, but I'm totally gonna try.

Hi, I'm Logan. I'm 22 years old and I still watch Nickelodeon and Disney Channel.

So, that's my story of how i landed my summer job and what I plan to do this summer. I hope it was worth reading. I think my next entry is going to be about my summer reading list.

Until next time, have a magical day!

My Cosmetic Essentials (That I Will Be Taking to Florida)

My Cosmetic Essentials

You can replace all the Mary Kay in this with Arbonne. My mom sells Arbonne so now I use their mineral foundation. I do still use Mary Kay's lipsticks and glosses though. I love BareMineral's eye shadows. My favorite is their gold. I use dark brown shadow first and then apply the gold on top to give it a warmer tone. I use dark navy blue Arbonne eyeliner to make my eye color pop, and Paradise Pink lipstick by Mary Kay with Arbonne's gold lip gloss to bring out the warm tones in the eye shadow. I use a rosy pink blush to help bring out the warmth as well. And I swear by Maybeline's Great Lash Mascara. I've tried other mascara's but I always come back to that one.

When it comes to my hair, if I want it curly, I use Catwalk or Curly Sexy Hair. Which one I use depends on how tight of a hold I want. When I want it straight I use Phyto's smooth serum to keep my hair from becoming too frizzy and I spray on some of Bed Head's "Head Rush" spray for some extra shine. I LOVE OPI nail polishes. Those three colors included above are my favorite nail colors that I have. I especially love them in the summer.

And those are the cosmetic essentials I'll be bringing with me to Florida.

And THOSE are my addiction. I have an addiction to Wayfarer style sunglasses. I buy cheap knock offs of them ALL the time. I have 8 pairs in my car right now. I'm pretty sure I have enough to go with any outfit I could EVER wear. They'll be with me in Florida too.

Until next time, have a magical day!

"Donald Duck Never Wore Pants..."

"...but whenever he's getting out of the shower he always puts a towel around his waist. What's that about?" -Chandler Bing, "Friends"

 So, this is just a post to day that there will be another post coming later. I've got a lot of personal updates to vent about. Plus I've had some ideas for Top 5 Lists. 

Anyway, I have some videos that I'll be posting fairly soon. I'm going out tonight with some friends and I'm gonna try to take some video without freaking them out, haha. 

Also I wanted to say I hope everyone checking in tomorrow has safe travels and LOTS of fun waiting in all those lines, haha. I'm jealous of every single one of you. I still have 83 days to go.

Top 5 Things to Pass the Time

1. Work -- yes I want a job for the paycheck, but it will also give me something to do for the next 88 days. If a good chunk of my day is busy then the days will pass quicker. (Oh, and I THINK I got a job. But I'll share more about that when I hear an official word.)

 2. Summer Reading List -- Having books to read passes the time greatly. I have a list of books that I have here in the house but haven't read or never finished. I'll be taking care of that list this summer. Reading is one of my favorite things to do and it always keeps me busy. I'll be doing another top 5 about my Top 5 Favorite Summer Reads later so look out for that!

 3. Spending time with Friends and Family -- Hanging out with my friends around home ALWAYS keeps me busy. I enjoy hanging out with people and just generally having a *classy* good time. I adore my family as well, and spend any time I can with them. They are all awesome.

4. Writing Fanfiction -- Yes, I write fanfiction. I'm good at it too! I just tied for an award at a fandom specific awards site! Fanfiction is fun, and I've met a ton of cool people because of it! It allows me to correct things I don't like about shows I watch while using my creative energy. You can check out my profile here:

5. Watch Movies -- whether that's at the theater or in my own home. I LOVE movies. There are a TON that I want to see this summer so I'll be spending lots of time at our local theater. Starting this weekend when I go see "Letters to Juliet". Actually it started on Monday when I went to see "Iron Man 2".

Until next time, have a magical day!

Formspring Wednesday!

Who is your favorite Disney character?

Oh wow, this is hard...hmmm. Well, I collect a LOT of Tinker Bell merchandise so I think I have to say her. I just think she's adorable. I love her in Peter Pan and I like her in her own movies, and just simply LOVE her. I will buy anything with her on it. Honorable mentions: Princess Aurora and Prince Philip. 

Thank you for your question, meganwdwcp2010!

I really appreciate your question!

Until next time, have a magical day!

My Top 5 Summer Clothing Essentials

My Five Summer Essentials
My Five Summer Essentials by angellwings featuring Steve Madden shoes

First of all, I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day! 

 Okay, so this isn't very Disney related, but I was bored tonight so I made a Top 5 Polyvore Set.

These items are my Top 5 Summer Essentials. The things that I can not survive a summer without.

1) An oversized handbag. I am a BIG FAN of large handbags. I carry one year around. I just believe in having a purse big enough to fit my universe in. Need to take your lunch with you? Throw it in a ziplock bag or a small insulated lunch pail and then stick in your purse. Need to bring a notebook or a binder with you? Put it in the bag. Need a change of clothes? Throw that in there too. No worries, it will all fit. BECAUSE YOUR PURSE IS HUGE!

2) Sandals. I can never have too many pairs of sandals. I wear them all the time. I like the flat ones the best. They're comfortable and cute. The perfect shoe for summer. They are my annual summer addiction. 

3) Wayfarer style sunglasses. I have at least 8 pairs of these in my car. I am not lying to you. I look for cute pairs every where I go. My DREAM is to have an authentic pair of Ray Bans, but that won't happen any time soon. So until then I buy cheap imitations and store them in the arm rest of Ruby the Escahpay. 

4) Old Navy tank tops. They're cheap, cool, layer-able, and just plain cute. I have at least 4 in different colors. I wear them all the time. My favorite casual summer top by far. If you haven't before go by Old Navy and purchase one or two. You won't regret it. 

5) American Eagle bermuda shorts. I buy a new pair every summer. They fit so well, and look so cute. You can't go wrong with denim bermudas. They'll completely worth the money. (Good Tip: If you have a pair of jeans with worn out hems and knees don't throw them away! Feel free to cut them off and create your own bermudas.)

That's our Top 5 for now! Lookout for another Vlog VERY soon. 

Until next time, have a magical day!

I'm Back Home!


And on Wednesday I moved out of my apartment. I spent the day packing my car and driving back to my lovely small town that's still closer to a Target and SEVERAL Starbucks stores than Boone. I arrived back home Wednesday night and then spent Thursday unpacking and doing laundry. Today has been spent unpacking storage containers and sorting through things, throwing out what I don't need and putting away the things that I do. I'm so crazed right now because of it. My brain can no longer process what goes where.

So, I'm taking a break to blog about it. Here are my pictures of EVERYTHING I've got to find a place for.

So, as you can see my room and my house is a mess. It looks a little better now since I've finished clearing out my containers. Once I find a place for everything I plan to film a vlog and show you guys all the disney merchandise in my room alone, lol. My room is COVERED in Disney, haha.

That's all for right now guys! I can not wait until I get all of this clutter put away. It's very frustrating!

Until next time, have a magical day!

Formspring Wednesdays

So, yesterday I had to go on a last ditch effort to get some questions, and you guys came through! I have three real beautiful questions in my inbox right now! Thank you! I really do appreciate it!

But, as so many people on Formspring have experienced, the anonymity can sometimes be a bad thing. People decide to take advantage of that, and use it to be cruel. This happened to me this morning. Now, I'll say that while these comments do not make me doubt myself, they do make me angry. They make me angry that I know someone, somewhere who would say these things anonymously because this can only mean that whoever this is is being nice to me to my face. Which means that I'm being duped into believing someone is a friend or an acquaintance. These person's comments (Yes, I'm certain it was one person who submitted TWO comments) include the following:

"You are a terrible singer I wish someone had told you that before you entered a singing competition."


"Do you realize you cant sing ?"

Now I'm not one to reject constructive criticism, but this isn't constructive at all. Whoever this is just needs to say this stuff to my face. I know I'm not the greatest singer in the world, but I also know that I have family and friends who respect me enough to TELL ME if I was that terrible. If this person meant these things at all they would be brave enough to say them to me directly without the cowardly mask of anonymity. And that's all I have to say on the matter.

Now onto the real questions from the wonderful people. 

Today, we have three Formspring Questions that I'm going to be answering for you guys. Enjoy!

Are you going to go to Universal Studios or Islands of Adventure while your down their?

Most definitely!  I really enjoy Universal Studios. Disney World is my favorite but Universal has some top notch rides. I love the Mummy rollercoaster, Twister: Ride it Out, Jaws, and all the other AWESOME attractions at Universal. Plus, Islands of Adventure has Marvel Superhero Island which is my favorite place island at the moment, but that may change once I get the chance to visit THE WIZARDING WORLD OF HARRY POTTER! So pumped to see that place! I can not wait! I am a Harry Potter fanatic! I love the books and I love the movies!

When did you become interested in Disney?

Ever since I saw a little movie called "The Little Mermaid". Seriously, it was the first Disney movie I ever watched, and I loved it. I grew up in that generation that got to watch all those early nineties Disney movies when they were new releases. Movies like Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Lion King all came out while I was in elementary school. Along with those new releases though my parents made sure to expose to the Disney they grew up with (So, I grew up loving movies like Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty). I also got to experience the Disney my brother grew up with as well (which was Oliver & Company, The Rescuers, and The Great Mouse Detective). I also have aunts and uncles who are Disney experts. When my aunt got married her honeymoon was in Disney World. I grew up with sing-a-longs that immortalized the place for me, and yet I didn't get to go until I was 15. So, I guess you could say me doing this program is me trying to make up for not seeing the place as a kid.

What is your dream job?

Dream job? My absolute DREAM job is to be a singer and actress. Now I doubt this will ever happen, but it's the job I dream about having. I love to sing (I have a passion for broadway and country music), I have a blast acting, and I would love to make a living doing those things! I plan on learning to play the guitar this summer. But the drawback is that if I were to be an actress I would have no drive to be taken seriously. I love comedy, and I love fluffy romantic comedies so I would probably make more of those than anything else. Of course, I wouldn't object to playing the comic relief in an action/adventure movie or the plucky sidekick in a superhero movie, lol. So, your answer is I would love to either be a country singer or an actress (of any kind: broadway, TV, or Film).

Search Stories: The Adventure of a Lifetime

Just three more months! I leave for my mini-Disney Vacation in exactly three months! Here's something fun to celebrate!

Until next time, have a magical day!

Tales of a Disney College Program Hopeful -- Vlog #19 (Five Facts!)

Until next time, have a magical day!

Happy Star Wars Day!


Yes, today is Star Wars Day, and May the 4th be with you! I'm a huge Star Wars fan! I'm specifically a Han Solo fan. Yes, young Harrison Ford as Han Solo just makes my little fangirl heart skip a beat. So, go watch Star Wars movies! Have a marathon! If I hadn't taken all my DVDs home already I'd have one as well.

Today is also MY LAST DAY OF EXAMS! Today I turn in my last college assignment (not counting the classes I'll be taking at Disney) until 2011! Be excited! I know I am!

Today is a busy day. I've got to take my books back (cross your fingers that I really did only rent 4 books because that's all I have), finish putting together a project, present said project, and finish shopping for my mom's Mother's Day present.

I've already gone out to get breakfast and shop for the first part of her present. Tomorrow my summer break starts and I'll have to take the job search to the extreme, but for today...MAY THE 4TH BE WITH YOU!

Until next time, have a magical day!

Top 5 Things to Do Over the Summer...

We're in the midst of exams here at Appalachian State, and in between all of my studying I'm contemplating what I'm going to do with all my free time this summer. I'm not used to being home during the summers. Usually I'm living on top of a mountain with about forty other girls, and taking care of precious tweenage girls week in and week out. I'm not used to having most of my days free.

So, I've been thinking of how I want to take advantage of that. Since the summer will be my last 3 months in NC before I head off to live in Florida for 5 months. I've decided to make this a Top 5, but unlike my other top fives the ranks mean nothing. This is just a list of goals of FUN things to do this summer.

1. Go to Carawinds Theme Park. It's not Disney World, heck it's not even Dollywood, but it's full of good fun. I really enjoy the water park. I want to get a few people to go with me and just have a play day in the park. It will be nice to have a good dose of Roller Coasters to tie me over until Disney.

2. Go to Mayfest at Myrtle Beach. Some of my favorite Disney Stars are going to be doing meet'n'greets Memorial Day weekend and I'm totally going.

3. Go to the Sun Fun festival which is also at Myrtle Beach in June.

4. Take an overnight trip somewhere with OUT the parents or any other adults. I've never done this, and I really want to. Go somewhere over night, just me and my friends. I don't care where...just somewhere. And the hotel would have to be cheap, haha.

5. Go to the Biltmore House and take the tour again. I haven't been to the Biltmore in Asheville since middle school, and I've forgotten half the stuff they tell you on the tour. I remember finding it all REALLY interesting, and I remember watching a classmate reach past the velvet ropes and "do not touch" sign to run a hand across one of the velvet seated chairs. But that's about it. It would be fun to have a refresher of the place.

So, there's my list of goals for Summer 2010. I'll let you know how it goes. I might even vlog about all of them. (Not that anyone is really watching my Vlog, except for Mandie and Michelle. Hi roomies!)

Until next time, have a magical day!
