As I sit here writing this, I’m drink a medium Iced Caramel Swirl Coffee (2 pumps of Caramel) with almond milk from every New Englander’s favorite Dunkin Donuts. I got it on the way home from the dentist and now, sadly it has melted. Saturday morning, on my way to work, I got the same thing but in latté form.
What’s the point of this post? There is none, except that I wanted to share my love of caffeine (and my obsession with taking pictures of everything I drink) with you all.
I have to say the Starbucks I went into during my recent trip to Walt Disney World (read about it here), were incredible. The service was completely up to Disney’s fantastic standards and I may have come home with a suitcase full of the “You Are Here” collection mugs.
So nope, there’s no point to this other than I love coffee, caffeine, and taking pictures of my drinks. Hope you’re all having a good day and hope the ridiculousness of this post made you smile!
There’s no better place to be than the Happiest Place on Earth. That’s a definitive fact and I can prove it.
This past week and a half I was lucky enough to venture down to Central Florida with my mom and sister for a girls’ getaway to Walt Disney World, which happens to be my favorite place in this big wide world that we live in. While my father and brother stayed home due to athletic commitments, us girls braved the steamy July heat, riding rollercoasters and sampling foods around the parks until our hearts were content.
We went in without a plan, lounging around in the mornings at Kidani Village‘s (part of the Animal Kingdom Lodge) gorgeous pool and bar before heading out to which ever park we had FastPasses for that day. For those of you who aren’t dedicated Disney buffs like myself, FastPasses are tickets you can book online with you park admissions that allow you to basically cut line for a designated ride (10/10 recommend).
Now I truly love each and everyone of WDW’s four uniquely themed parks, but EPCOT holds a special place in my heart. Being able to “visit” eleven different countries in a day is an experience like no other. Each country around EPCOT’s World Showcase is staffed by people of that nationality who always have to most amazing things to say about where they come from and the experiences and people they’ve met throughout their life.
While every part of my vacation was so enjoyable, dinner at EPCOT Morocco’s Spice Road Table was an evening I truly will never forget. My mom had planned this dinner for the three of us due to my love of African food and spices, but it wasn’t just the amazing hummus fries and lamb sliders that put the evening as a such a highlight. The entire staff, from the bus boys, to the host, to our incredible waiter, Madhi, were so incredibly warm and welcoming that they had the entire restaurant talking and laughing with each other. Disney’s service is always amazing but sometimes you meet people with an extra sparkle and it’s incredible.
Walt Disney World will always feel like home to me and while I’m not sure when I’ll be able to return, this trip will always hold a special place in my heart.

Hello everyone who happened to stumble onto this page! I’m Megan and this is meganelizabethcollins.com!
Now blogging is clearly new to me, but I’ve been so inspired lately by the likes of Hello October and Lydia Elise Millen that I’ve decided why wait and daydream of creating when I could start today? And so my blog has been born…
High school has officially ended for me as of thirty-one hours ago (I still cannot believe I am now a BHS alumni… ahh!) and I’m ready to take the world by storm. I’ve spent the entirety of my life so far in the most beautiful, coastal town of Beverly, Massachusetts which, thankfully, is only a twelve dollar ticket and thirty-five minute train ride from Boston, a city I’m proud to be a part of. In three months I’m headed to Philadelphia for college to do whatever it is I end up doing and I’m so excited for the new adventures that await me!
Summer has started for me today and needless to say I’m beyond happy it’s finally here. My days from here until school starts consist of the beach (a place pale redheads are never found without a bucket of sunscreen), at work scooping ice cream (it’s actually really fun), the gym (I hope), and countless hours with my best friends (and Netflix) by my side. I absolutely love to spend too much of my time browsing Bloglovin’, online shopping every sale, and pondering what those cute, little Pinterest DIYs would actually turn out like if I were to try them.
So I’ve been trying to avoid making this sound like an online dating profile and I don’t want to ramble on forever because, truth be told, I am known to do that. With this blog I’m just hoping to create an avenue to express my passion for everything that makes me smile – from fashion to beauty to fitness and just my day-to-day travels. Right now, I’m an eighteen year old girl headed in so many different directions that sometimes my head spins, but I hope you all will stick with it and follow wherever my footsteps carry me.
