Disneyland, Star War’s Galaxy’s Edge and Rise of the Resistance

I finally caved into peer pressure and allowed my friends to convince me to buy an Annual Pass to Disneyland. It has been years and years since my last visit at the park and I was very excited to see Star War’s Galaxy’s Edge (or as we fondly keep calling it: Star Wars Land).

My first visit did not disappoint and I was in absolute awe of everything. It truly felt like entering a different world.

Find Your D’Arcy & Live Your Regency Dreams: The Jane Austen Evening

As a rabid Jane-ite, one who considers themselves an expert in all things Jane Austen, I was pleased as a Regency spiked punch to be able to attend the Jane Austen Evening this year, which is held annually at the Pasadena Masonic Lodge by the Society for Manners and Merriment.

The event consistently sells out within minutes online, with lucky patrons being able to choose between just the dance ticket, or combining it with a sit down tea service beforehand. Although the demand for tickets continues to grow, the Society for Manners and Merriment insists on keeping the venue and the size that it is, to ensure a unique, intimate, and carefully crafted event for its patrons.
If you are curious about this event, but wonder what to wear, worry not! Even though there is often a plethora of beautiful regency garments worn by attendees, the ball also welcomes those without timeline appropriate attire to simply wear formal dress clothes.
Step into the world of Jane Austen, and check out some of the beautiful garments, dances, and decor of this wonderful event!
