Disney Days: Blogger's Day Trip

Disney Days: Blogger's Day Trip | Style Through Her Eyes

When I heard my friend Karen of A Simple Cup of Tea was going to be visiting from the UK and wanted to meet up, I was so thrilled and immediately suggested that we spend the day at Down Town Disney. She had never been before and I thought it'd be a wonderful experience for her (she is going to Disneyland during her stay here, and will have even more exciting adventures!). Karen and I met each other years ago back when Live Journal was almost as popular as Facebook. She was even one of the lovely ladies who participated in posting here on SHE five years ago when I first started the blog. So, to finally meet her and spend the afternoon chit chatting and browsing all the shops was so much fun! Here's a few photos from our day!

We had lunch at La Brea Bakery Cafe. They have yummy pizza, salads and sandwiches with most meals ranging from $15 to $20. This is also one of the sit down restaurants that you can get your parking validated for an extra two hours. Consider that your Disney tip of the day ;)

Karen and I thought the California Grilled Chicken sandwich with bacon, white cheddar, alfalfa sprouts, and avocado mayonnaise on a rustic roll sounded good. It came with a side of yam chips which were similar in taste to sweet potato fries. The sandwich made our eyes widen it was so good and we pretty much continued to comment on the taste as we discussed differences between the UK and the US.

Of course we had to shop in one of the largest Disney stores, the World of Disney! You can easily spend so much time in there because there is so much too look at! This is where Karen found her 60th Celebration Diamond Mickey ears!

I don't collect Precious Moments but I do love looking at the Disney figurines. This one of Mulan and Mushu I hadn't seen before. I appreciate it when characters who aren't often thought of get some love this way!

We made a stop inside Sephora and took a mirror selfie.
You know, like most people do.

One of my favorite shops is the Wonderground Gallery. It's filled with art and collectibles from several talented artists. This was a new Star Wars magnet set I spotted by Jerrod Maruyama. So cute!

We browsed many other shops and ended the day with a relaxing time sitting in the beautiful lobby of the Grand Californian Hotel. There are many couches and chairs, a fireplace and a grand piano where often times the most beautiful Disney music is played. It's difficult to leave such a place!

I had such a great time with Karen! Have you ever met anyone you've known for years online? What was your experience like?

Beauty Box 5: Flash Tattoo Review | Style Through Her Eyes


In this month's Beauty Box 5 box I received a sample sheet of Pur~lisse Flash Tattoos. I was so excited about these that I forgot to take a decent picture of the full sheet of the tattoos before cutting the different designs out to try them! With a wet wash cloth I was easily able to transfer each of the tattoos I placed on my chest and wrist by holding the wash cloth on top of the tattoo for about 45 seconds. They are said to last for about 3 to 5 days and can be removed using baby oil or coconut oil with gentle scrubbing. I'm currently on the second day of wearing them and they look great! I'm so happy that I finally got to try these out and I love how they look on! I found a few websites via Google that sell them, including Flash Tattoo, but you can also find them in stores at Sephora and Target.

Have you tried any of these metallic looking tattoos yet? What do you think of them?

Here's what else I got in my box! Three full size products (lip liner, lip gloss and nail polish) along with some serum and face cream samples. You can get multiple sized products like these every month for just $12! Sign up here!

June Favorites: Accessories, Apps, Film & Food

I feel like I just wrote about my favorites in May! I think one of the reasons the year is just flying by for Jason and I is because we have had countless events and weddings on top of the Birthdays we celebrate every month. There's been so many amazing things happening though and I can definitely say this has been one great year so far!

June Favorites: Acessories, Apps, Film & Food | Style Through Her Eyes

I wanted a somewhat festive accessory to wear for the 4th of July so at the end of June I chose a few charms to add to my Brighton Charm Necklace ($30). I picked out the ABC Heart Charm ($9.50) and a couple of Swirly Spacers ($6) to go on each side of the heart. I like the spacers because they look like waves, which happens to be the meaning of my name, white wave.

Last month my Gramma came to visit during the weekend of my mom's Birthday. I treated my mom to El Torito for lunch for her special day where we both enjoyed a delicious Grilled Chicken Taco Salad and talked about most things Disney and Star Wars. While my Gramma was down we also had a girls day and went to get frozen yogurt from our favorite place, Yogurtland, with some shopping at Home Goods afterwards.

Jason and I weren't planning on seeing Jurassic World in theaters. We both thought the trailers didn't look good but then we randomly decided to go and see it one weekend. We left the movie completely shocked and entertained! I definitely didn't expect it to be the most intense Jurassic movie. At one point my knee was almost up to my chest and I found my hand constantly over my mouth during the movie. It's very action-packed! There is some cheesy dialogue but the acting was good. We had never seen Chris Pratt in anything before and enjoyed his performance. If you liked the previous Jurassic Park films, I think you'll like this one!

To say I have been obsessed with the Star Wars Card Trader app is an understatement. It's basically a digital card trading game where you earn a certain amount of coins each day to purchase card packs that are released throughout the day. You may pull a card you want but sometimes you won't get anything that you were hoping for. The great thing is, you can trade with other fans in the app's Fan Feed or on the Facebook Group, Black Sun Cantina. There are various card rarities and many sets to collect. Oh, and if you pull a rare one and don't care to keep or trade it, you might even list it on eBay. Yep, it's pretty intense and has actually become the first thing I check on my phone each morning. I never even expected that!

Hope you all had a great month too! xoxo

JORD Watch Review

JORD Watch Review | Style Through Her Eyes

What I Wore

Top Shop Blouse: Nordstrom Rack
Knit Jeggings: American Eagle
Franco Sarto Heels: Nordstrom Rack
Wooden Watch: JORD
Secret of Love Hinged Bangle: Brighton
Twinkle Necklace: Brighton

I haven't worn a watch in years but have occasionally browsed some that caught my eye while out shopping which has recently led me to think, "Maybe I should get one...". So when JORD (pronounced Y-O-O-D) contacted me asking me to style one of their wooden watches for them I was very eager and excited for the challenge. JORD is a fairly new company that was started by three brothers who were born and raised in St. Louis. While they do have a few jewelers who carry their watches in their hometown, they are best known as an online company. Like their watches, which are primarily made from 100% natural wood, their website is simple but modern and easy to use. You'll find a great selection of both men's and women's watches with various styles along with descriptive information about each watch to assist you in making the perfect purchase.

I chose the Elly watch in the maple finish. I felt the lighter wood and delicate features would be the perfect fit for my tiny wrist. Upon receiving my watch, I was pleasantly surprised by the way it was packaged. I think the way a product arrives at my door step speaks numbers about a company and I truly appreciate the special wood case it came with as well. The wood is firm but soft and comfortable to wear. It's also splash proof, which is a comforting feature, though obviously it should never be submerged in water. I also really like the nifty stainless steel clasp feature. You'll notice from my pictures that when the double sided clasp is closed it is completely hidden by the wooden band. I accessorized my watch with silver accessories from Brighton to compliment the features but not take away from the beauty of it. Some people might expect a wooden watch to only go with simple Spring and Summer outfits like shorts and dresses, but as you can see, it also looks fantastic worn with something a little more dressed up as well. I love my watch and am excited to continue to wear it throughout all seasons!

Wal Mart Beauty Box - Summer Edition

Wal Mart Beauty Box - Summer Edition | Style Through Her Eyes

In case you haven't heard, Wal Mart has a Beauty Box that is sent right to your door once for every season. The boxes are only $5 each and often come with some good sample products. You can see what I got in my Winter box here and my Spring box here. Usually shampoos and conditioners turn me off instantly because I'm very particular about the ones I use, and I don't often use body washes that are sent to me, but I did get a few things in the Summer box that I'm excited about which you can see below...
