The Opening of Pandora at Walt Disney World

This post was sponsored by Walt Disney World.  It’s no secret that I am a huge Disney fan, so I was thrilled to partner with Animal Kingdom Lodge to celebrate the opening of Pandora, the world of Avatar!We arrived at the resort Saturday morning, and were greeted by giraffes, zebras, gazelles and exotic birds wandering right outside our bedroom. That is what is so special about this hotel — you can sit on your balcony and enjoy a meal while watching more than 30 different species of African wildlife roam for hours. At one point, three zebras were chasing one another and playing for almost 20 minutes. You pinch yourself because it looks so unreal!We wasted no time and went straight to Pandora. The park is nothing short of mind-blowing – enormous floating mountains tower above the crowds with waterfall after waterfall spilling from the sky.

The Power Of the Black Tee

We all have days when we open our closets, stare blankly at the clothing sitting on the shelves, and frustratingly admit that we have no idea what to wear! On days like this, never underestimate the power of a black tee.The black tee shirt is sexy, cool and trendy without making your outfit too complex. When pairing this item with the right counterparts, you can even achieve a sophisticated look. But not just any old black tee shirt will create a striking outfit. You must choose one that is properly fitted and one that creates a silhouette to compliment your body. Ditch the crew neck for a v-neck to add an extra element of elevation to the tee. It may sound silly, but a detail as small as the shape of the neck makes a big difference in setting the tone of your look. When it comes to fabric, stay away from 100% cotton shirts and opt for a blended or silk material – this will make the tee shirt appear dressier.The other pieces you …
