Travel Diary: Guide to Visiting SeaWorld San Diego

Entrance to SeaWorld

I just spent 3.5 days in San Diego and I can't wait to share my experiences! First up, is my tips and experiences visiting SeaWorld! This guide is best for friends and couples in the 20's and 30's. We spent an entire day (9am-9pm) at the park but if I was to do it again, I would have packed it in a shorter period of time and visited other parts of San Diego. That is not to say it wasn't fun as it was an absolute blast and one of the best attractions in the city!

Ticket Price: $69.99 for a regular 1 day pass
Gate Hours: 9am-9pm (This changes daily so please check before going)
Estimated Time to Spend: 8 hours
Wifi: Only available at entrance and Shamu Stadium

In this post, I'll break down the attractions by Rides, Animal Exhibits, Animal Encounters, and Shows. Then I'll summarize and give a suggested itinerary that will get you in and out while seeing everything!

1000 Instagram Followers Giveaway!!

When I first started blogging 4 years ago, I never thought I'd be taking photos with a DSLR and working with PR firms to test out unreleased makeup. It's a goal of mine to hit 1,000 followers on Instagram in 2016 and I'm so grateful I was able to do it this early in the year.

To celebrate, I decided to put together three prize packs featuring makeup from brands that I discovered through blogging. These three prizes will be provided by the PR companies and therefore only available to Canadian residents. 

I don't want to forget my international followers this time, so I'm also giving away a $100 Sephora Gift Card! Enter one or all of the prize packs.

Prize Pack #1: Stila Cosmetics

I've featured Stila quite a few times on my blog and many of these items have been reviewed on the blog. The brand is super underrated and I've found some quality items that I love.The first prize pack includes:

Wonder Brush For Face & Body - My Review
Stay All Day Bronzer for Face & Body in Medium- My Review
Got Inked Cushion Eye Liner in Smoky Quartz
HUGE Extreme Lash Mascara - My Review
TOTAL VALUE: $188.00

Prize Pack #2: Quo Cosmetics

Quo is a house brand by Shoppers Drug Mart and something I've always passed by before being introduced to it. I love the seasonal collections they do especially the recent summer collection. The prize pack will feature new products to their core collection.

Quo Brow Kit
Lip Gloss Set
True Hues Eyeshadow Palette
Contour Kit
Double Agent
Holy Grail Mascara
Lip Liner
Art of Lining Brush tip
Total worth over $100

Prize Pack #3: Essence Cosmetics

Another neat brand I recently discovered is essence. It's a brand from Europe and features very affordable products with awesome quality! I've reviewed their lipsticks, and eyeliners recently from the S/S collection. But you'll have a chance to win the A/W collection!

The exact items are to be decided but it's estimated at $50 so you'll be sure to have tons of new products to try out!

International Giveaway: $100 Sephora E-Giftcard

I know my non-Canadian readers are often neglected in my other giveaways so I want to make sure everyone's included in this. I think there's no explanations required on what awesomeness $100 from Sephora could bring.

Rules: All 4 prizes will run for two weeks. Winner will be contacted by email and given 24 hours to respond. At that time, a new winner will be selected. Also, please make sure you are actually interested in the prize that you have entered for!

Thanks again for supporting me and good luck!

Music Festival Inspiration (Hair, Makeup, Outfit)

I spent the Canada Day weekend at Fvded in the Park and had a blast! Before attending though, I was searching up inspirations for my hair, makeup, and outfit. It was surprisingly difficult with way too many unwearable options! I decided to compile some inspirations and grouped it to those that are stereotypical "go with the flow" or more unique "make your own way". All of them however are wearable! Let's get started!
