Halloween With Disney…

Visiting Walt Disney World at any time of the year is a magical experience. Visiting at Halloween takes things to another level. During this time the Magic Kingdom hosts Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.  This year the event takes place on select nights from September 2-October 31 and does require an event ticket that is separate from the normal theme park entry.

Let’s take a journey into Mickey’s world:

Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween party

Last year I was able to attend Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party for the first time. My husband and I went as Prince Eric and Ariel. You need not dress up, but it really makes the experience even more fun! There are some rules associated with costumes so if you plan on going and dressing up check out this link: dressing for the occasion.

During the fall the Magic Kingdom is decorated in fall colors, but on the nights of the party they really play up Halloween even more.

I couldn’t resist taking pictures in the Under the Sea- Journey of the Little Mermaid ride.  I was after all the mermaid! 😉

The colors were spectacular during the event. The buildings down Main Street were lit with purples, oranges and greens. It set the perfect tone for a spooktacular evening! Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween party
One of my favorite parts of the party was the Boo-To-You Halloween Parade! Watch out for the Headless Horseman who gallops in right before the parade starts!Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween party

Art by C.Joseph

One great thing about scrolling through Instagram is that you can encounter some truly talented people! That is exactly how I discovered the artwork of C.Joseph, fellow Texan and lover of music. I didn’t want to run the risk of you all not also discovering his talent so I asked him if I could feature his art on Channelling Dolly. He was gracious enough to accept my request! 

Inspired by Andy Warhol, Van Gogh, and Jackson Pollock, Christopher Joseph Gonzalez, the man behind C.Joseph, blends their visions with an exciting selection of colors. Whether it being through objects, musicians or cityscapes these vibrant pieces would be statement-making in any space! 

Without further ado allow me to introduce you:

Santa Fe, New Mexico

Have you ever loved a place before you’ve ever even been there?Read about it and just knew that this would be your place?  This was me with Santa Fe, New Mexico for years before going there. From the art to the colors, the shopping to the history, Santa Fe truly is a majestic city.

One of my favorite artists is Georgia O’ Keefe. From her flower paintings to her desert landscapes and especially her cityscapes I have always been so fascinated by her work. When planning a trip to Santa Fe the number one thing on my list was to visit the Georgia O’Keefe Museum.  Continue reading Santa Fe, New Mexico

It's Fall Y'a;

On Labor Day I noticed posts all over social media mourning the end of summer. At the time I thought that those sillies didn’t realize they had more sunny days ahead. Well, today it really IS official. Summer 2016 has gone and fall has arrived. 

While I love beach umbrellas, daylight until 8 pm and cookouts as much as the next person there are some things that make me look forward to the change in season every year: Continue reading It’s Official…
