My #DisneyBound Year in Review: Looking Back on 2020

Post a comment!

A collection of Disney bounds created by Jamie Allison Sanders during 2020.
Do you know what it means to DisneyBound? If not, don't worry — before about two years ago, neither did I! DisneyBounding means putting together outfits inspired by Disney characters, but not dressing as the characters (which would be cosplay). So, you take pieces from your wardrobe and put them together to create different characters! I first learned about bounding from my friend Erin during our many trips to Disneyland (she is a true bounding queen), and while I had dabbled in it before 2020, I really let my creativity fly this year. Hey, I had to do something while I was just sitting in my apartment all year! Below, some of my favorite bounds of 2020.

I'd been swiping on Tinder and Bumble for awhile, meeting men occasionally, but not getting into anything serious. Then I met H.

Get to Know Lindsey Gaughan: Creator of Best Day Ever Ears Co.

Post a comment!

Lindsey Gaughan is the founder and creator of Best Day Ever Ears Co. and makes Minnie ears.
If you know me at all, you know I am a major Disney person. Every time I go to the parks (RIP right now, but in general), I plan out the perfect outfit to wear that day. And a lot of that starts with the right pair of Minnie ears! My absolute favorite small shop for Minnie ears is Best Day Ever Ears Co. Lindsey Gaughan creates so many amazing pairs of Minnie ears that truly bring joy and delight! She thinks of new designs each season (not to mention each month), and painstakingly crafts them with such love and care. The quality cannot be beat! I also love that Lindsey is now making masks during the pandemic, and of course those are just as amazing. I'm thrilled to feature her! Read on to discover how Lindsey got her start making ears, the number 1 beauty product she can't live without, and so much more.

The One That Kept Ghosting

Post a comment!

It was October 2017, a night like practically any other. I matched with a cute guy named Mike on Tinder, and we started chatting. Fairly par for the course, right? The witty banter was good, the conversation flowed easily, we moved to text. Again, par for the course.

VOTE.

Post a comment!

 

Jamie Sanders is bounding as Rosie the Riveter in a blue denim dress and red and white striped headband, in the We Can Do It poster.

Today is the day. I am feeling apprehensive. Trepidatious. Anxious. Scared. Nervous. And also, a touch hopeful.

I truly hope everything we have done in advance of this election has been enough. That democracy will triumph. That equal rights for EVERYONE will not be stripped away. That science, intelligence and knowledge will prevail. That Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will have the chance to bring us a brighter future and a better world.

I decided to bound as Rosie the Riveter because this very image epitomizes the strength and hope I'm wishing for in this moment.
 
Let us hope.
