Disney World 2020 Edition :

Disney World 2020 Edition :

Disney on my mind all day everyday; if it were up to me I would basically live at the “Happiest Place on Earth” 🌎! I’ve been going to Disney World for as long as I could remember, mostly because my parents did everything in their power to take us to Disney at least 3-4 times a year. It’s truly such a magical place no matter what your age is! I mean, take me as an example, I’m 25 years old and I am completely obsessed with it.

At the beginning of this year (before this whole pandemic started) I had mentioned to Alex that I really wanted to go to Disney, mainly because we hadn’t visited Star Wars : Galaxy’s Edge and Pandora : The World of Avatar. But for obvious reasons that was put on hold because COVID-19. The parks were closed for about 3-months and once they announced their reopening, I myself was a little skeptical about going. Just because I wasn’t sure how Disney would handle a pandemic, I knew that they would only reopen if they fully felt like they could handle it properly, but I was still a little skeptical. Disney immediately detailed how they would be reopening their parks in phases, all in consideration of the safety of their guests + cast members. So when I saw exactly how they would be doing it, I felt a little more at ease, especially seeing some close friends & family go to the parks after reopening and sharing their own personal experiences with me. So it was just a matter of time, till we were gonna finally be able to experience it all for ourselves! Luckily, Alex went ahead and planned out this little weekend getaway for just the two of us and now I get to share our personal experience with you guys!

Where Did We Stay?

We personally love staying at Disney properties whenever we plan a Disney trip, just because the amenities offered in these resorts are a plus. We love the fact that you have complimentary transportation included from your resorts to any of the parks, plus you’ve also got transportation included to all of the other resorts within Disney World; just incase you prefer spending your day resort hopping (which incase you didn’t know, resort hopping at Disney is definitely a thing)! So we stayed at Disney’s Pop Century Resort, which btw had a major facelift, I absolutely loved how the rooms are newly remolded and the fact that they don’t have carpet anymore! I honestly hate carpets, and I felt like them adding wooden floors was definitely a nice touch. We got a standard room in the 90’s section, and the size of the room was perfect for the two of us, everything was cleaned to perfection + disinfected. They also recently added the SkyLiner to the Pop Century, which is another great way of complimentary transportation to either Epcot Center or Hollywood Studios.

Which Parks Did We Visit?

  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios
  • Magic Kingdom
  • Animal Kingdom

Disney’s Hollywood Studios has recently added a few attractions that we both hadn’t visited and we were really looking forward to finally being able to enjoy Star Wars : Galaxy’s Edge. Guys when I tell you that we are both obsessed with Galaxy’s Edge, BELIEVE ME…..WE ARE! Disney always outdoes themselves when it comes to experiences, they try to immerse you into every little detail and they definitely went above and beyond to do just that with Galaxy’s Edge! Specifically with the Rise of the Resistance; it honestly has been the BEST ride I have ever been on! Other than Galaxy’s Edge, Disney also added Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway and it’s honestly such a cute ride, especially for those who love Mickey & the gang!

Magic Kingdom is a total must, no matter how many times you’ve already been to it, it will never get old! I personally love the feeling I get once I walk down Main-Street & I see Cinderella’s Castle! It’s like I’m a 10 year old all over again, BEST FEELING EVER 🥰! Overall Magic Kingdom hasn’t changed much since the last time we went, although they are currently working on “Tron Lightcycle Power Run” , which gives us another reason to return as soon as it opens!

Animal Kingdom has also added a few new attractions, since the last time we had visited, so we were extremely excited to finally be able to return & enjoy Pandora – The World of Avatar! Avatar Flight of Passage is Pandora’s signature attraction at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. This flight stimulator attraction creates the exhilaration feeling of flying from the back of one of the Banshee’s, over and through the breathtaking landscapes of Pandora. It’s often compared to Epcot’s Soarin “Around the World” as it simulates the sensation of flight and uses a giant screen coupled with scents and water effect. But Flight of Passage is literally Soarin on steroids, it’s that much better than Soarin!

Where Did We Eat?

I don’t know about you guys, but I personally LOVE to eat! Especially those Mickey head Pretzels that you can find in every Disney park! Disney is well known for their yummy bites, and the diversity of food they have throughout all of the parks. During our recent trip we mostly ate in their counter service dinning options, we would grab something quick and go about our day, and I must say they recently added a new way of ordering your meals/snacks that made the whole ordering process much easier. Whether you’re waiting to hop on an attraction, strolling through a land or find yourself directly in front of a restaurant you’d like to try, they made it easier for you to order, pay for and pick up fresh food throughout all of Walt Disney World Resorts. All you need is your phone and the My Disney Experience app. Whenever Alex & I craved something to eat, we would just order it on the app and choose a timeframe for pick-up. Which I personally loved, just because you’re not forced to be stationed at a line in order to get your food, you can just enjoy yourselves while they get your food ready.

Now we did splurge a little on two occasions during our recent trip, we were able to get reservations for both The Boathouse & the Be Our Guest restaurants, both of these restaurants are a total must if you go to Disney World. Their food and service is exceptional, on both occasions I ordered the Filet Mignon and I wasn’t disappointed. I personally loved the Be Our Guest, just because I am totally obsessed with the movie “Beauty and the Beast” , so it’s obvious that I would love this particular restaurant especially for it’s experience. That’s something I feel is extremely important, especially whenever you’re dinning at one of the Disney themed restaurants; you are paying for an experience. That doesn’t take away from the fact that the food should also be amazing, but also remember that it’s a combination of both things; experience and food. Overall the experience and the food at the “Be Our Guest” restaurant is well worth it in my opinion!

Final Verdict :

Overall, Alex & I really enjoyed ourselves during our recent Disney trip. We felt like Disney’s main concern, was definitely the guests safety and wellbeing. They went above and beyond to incorporate safety measures all throughout all of their parks, but definitely with a magical touch. If you have been dying to go, but haven’t been completely sure as to “how safe it actually is”, I hope this post can answer all of those pending questions & concerns, and also help you figure out if Disney is the place for you and your family during a pandemic. I personally cannot wait for our next trip back, I’m low-key already planning it lol 😂! But for now I’ll just enjoy all of our pics & videos, until I can be back at the Happiest Place on Earth!

XOXO, Yesi 🥂

LIKEtoKNOW.it :

As many of you guys know I started this blogging journey 2 years ago, I found myself in a place that I was finally ready to do something that I had always wanted to do. I wanted to give myself an opportunity to grow and get out of my comfort zone, but most importantly share with you guys a little bit of my everyday! When I first started, I honestly didn’t know what I wanted to talk about or what to share, but little by little it all started to fall into place. I found myself talking about pretty much anything, and it all came out so naturally, mainly because you guys were interested.

I found that you guys were mostly interested in my #OOTD / #OOTN . But I was caught up in a place where I didn’t know how to share all of my outfit details in an easy shop-able way. I noticed that a few of my favorite fashion bloggers used the LIKEtoKNOW.it App and I instantly loved the idea of having a direct link for all of my outfit details. So of course, I had to apply for the program & here we are today! I wanted to create a little blog post explaining to you guys what LIKEtoKNOW.it is and how it works, so if you guys ever come across any of my links, you can understand how easy this shop-able link is!

I myself was a little confused as how to operate it! After a few posts here and there, I was finally comfortable enough to share this new platform with Ya’ll. This app is here to make shopping for items a lot easier for my followers and ultimately, makes it easier for me to earn commission for each of my LIKEtoKNOW.it posts if someone decides to make a direct purchase from any of my links. ( I like to keep things transparent with you guys, and I want you to fully understand exactly how this platform works; and how it’s not only beneficial to you to “shop my looks”, but also beneficial to me!) At the end of the day I was always tagging every individual brand in all of my pics, and I would also go to the extent of sharing direct links to these brands websites for you to shop my look. Which is why this didn’t feel any different for me, because it’s not like I was changing my post routines. I’m basically doing the same exact thing, just making it much more simpler for you guys to shop!

The best part about this platform is that, EVERYONE can sign up for a LIKEtoKNOW.it account, regardless if you’re a blogger or not! It’s completely free and simple to do. Simply enter the email address you’d like to receive your product links from and that’s it! If you follow me on Instagram and see a product you’d like to buy, check to see if a “LIKEtoKNOW.it URL” is mentioned within the caption, and if so, just double-tap the image to “like” it and you should receive an email almost immediately with clickable images directing you to the exact product or up to 6 similar styles! Talk about making your shopping experience 100X EASIER! If you haven’t done so already, download the LIKEtoKNOW.it App and search @adayinyesislife & simply follow me for more details! #HappyShopping 🛍

Marilin’s Jewelry :

Marilin’s Jewelry :

As many of you know Marilin’s Jewelry is literally my L.I.F.E 💎! It’s only fair to say this, because I was basically raised at my parents store. So much so, that every client that sees me always says the same exact thing, “Omg Yesi! You’ve gotten so big”! They were always so used to seeing me running around the shop or pretending to know what I was doing ever since the age of 7 🤣! But now I am all grown up, and managing two storefront locations alongside my parents, creating new marketing techniques & learning each and everyday what this business has to offer. I make it my daily goals to always continue bettering our brand, it’s not easy because I’m not a professional marketing director, but I feel like the fact that I care so deeply for this brand, it gives me more motivation to do better for it.

Creating can be difficult sometimes, especially when you’re working extra-hard to do something completely different from the norm. I’ve found that being different will definitely set you apart from other brands, and actually give you a chance to be seen as an original. In the jewelry industry, it’s extremely important to be authentic and have originality, especially if you’d want be seen by others. Which is why it’s been kinda difficult for me to find exactly how I wanted to market our Insta page. I’ve found myself on many occasions in a place, where I would come up with an idea, do it for a couple of months and then see it plastered on every other jewelers page. So I would feel, like maybe the idea was cool for the moment, but I gotta move on to something much more different + cooler 😎! Which is why progress & change are also very important factors in a business.

With that being said, I always envisioned our brand to take the next step and create an online presence. But as many of you know, working a full-time job and building a website can be difficult to-do at the same time. So when our storefront locations were mandated by the County to close on March 19th due to COVID-19, I thought to myself, let me make this time as useful as possible. I not gonna sit here and lie to you, the first couple of days I did take some time off & relaxed, because I physically and mentally needed it. But after I did, I felt like I could finally set my attention towards something I always wanted to do. Which was, build a website for Marilin’s & figure out what I wanted our brand to be. Figuring out what I wanted our brand to look like, was much more simpler than building a website. But I thankfully got both things done in a timely manner, I came up with a plan for our brand + built a simple website for the time being, because I really wanted to have an online presence as quickly as possible for our clients during these unprecedented times. The website is definitely a work in-progress, but the first step was taken already, and that’s the important part from all of this. Now that our website has been live for just a couple of days, I have realized why it’s so important to have one and I am glad that I took that initiative to build it, because now this step has opened up a whole new world for our brand! So cheers to Marilin’s new achievements & to many more!

Fall Lippy Must-Haves :

Fall Lippy Must-Haves :

Now that it’s officially Fall🍂, not only can we bring out all of our dark-toned clothing + leopard printed sweaters, but we can also plump our lips with some cute Fall Lippy tones! And I’m all for it; I personally enjoy wearing darker tones on my lips, because I feel like they look best with my skin tone. So you can definitely always find me rocking a few of my fave beige-toned Lippies all year round, but especially during this time of the year!

I recently purchased this L’Oreal Infalliable Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick in the tone “Candy Man” from their “Les Chocolats Collection”, and it’s to die for!😍

When leaning towards to the beige-pallets, I always try to purchase Lippies that will be long-lasting + with a matte finish, I just feel like the matte finish always makes the lips look so much nicer (although they can usually dry up your lips). A good recommendation for keeping your lips looking flawless & not dry, would be that once you remove the matte lipstick, always try to apply chapstick or ointments after removal. This will help your lips feel refreshed & smooth, so whenever you do decide to reapply Matte Lipstick your lips won’t look chapped.

Now that I’ve poured all the deets , here’s a little list of some great Lippies that you just gotta have for Fall of 2019 :

  1. Mabelline Creamy Mattes Lip Color : “Sensational”
  2. Mabelline Super Stay Matte Ink Lip Color: “Driver”
  3. Matte: NYX Professional Makeup Matte Lipstick Color : “Suede
  4. Burt’s Bee’s Moisturizing Lipstick Color : “Nile Nude
  5. Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Fall Lipstick Color : “Silver Fox”
  6. MAC Fall Lipstick Color : “Sin”
  7. Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick Color : “Trust Issues”
  8. Chanel Rouge Allure Fall Lipstick Color : “Secret”
  9. Kay Von D Fall Lip Color : “Plath”
  10. Bobbie Brown Fall Lip Color : “Blue Raspberry

Miami Swim Week #OOTD 7.14.2019:

Miami Swim Week #OOTD 7.14.2019:

Summer in Miami means three things, ungodly heat, white sand beaches, and Miami Swim week. So imagine my frustration finding something to wear to the events that fit my style and function.


This long slit dress has beautiful vivd colors which defiantly caught the attention of a few party goers.

For my dress I took to one of my favorite stores for cute outfits, Forever21. Dressing stylish doesn’t require breaking the bank. I was immediately attracted to this stylish slit dress that showed off just the right amount of skin. The bright vivid colors popped against the white back drops and runways making sure I stood out amongst the crowds of fellow party goers.

I accessorized with a pair of 14K Gold Hoops & 14K Gold Ear-Cuffs from Marilin’s Jewelry + I decided to wear the cutest bobby pins ever from Forever21: Drip Bobby Pin Set & Shook Bobby Pin Set.

Then came figuring out what accessories to pair with my outfit. My advice, always go with a good pair of big gold hoops. Having a pair of gold hoops in Miami is rite of passage. They complement any outfit and provided the perfect balance between style and bag for your buck!

Walking to all the different events can be a drag. That’s why I chose to complete this outfit with my favorite pair of Michael Kors Berkley Leather Platform Sandals! These things are comfortable and stylish.

Being invited to Miami Swim Week events has one big caveat though. With so many events crammed into a short amount of time you gotta plan getting too and from events quickly and efficiently. On any given day I spend up most of 8 hours standing which means I need the absolute most comfortable and stylish heels available period! These Michael Kors Berkley Leather Platform Sandals are my go-to pair when I know I’ll be up standing all day. My only regret is not buying them in all the different colors #xmaswishlist2019

Overall, this years Miami Swim Week 2019 was simply amazing. Big-shout to Modern Luxury Miami Magazine & Nu Wave Swim for inviting me to their event it was truly a pleasure!

XOXO, Yesi 🥂
