Meet Melanie

Hi there, I’m Melanie!

Photographer, mom, coffee junkie, travel-addict

I’m one half of Polkadots and PixieDust and together with my sister Rochelle we write this blog and run our tshirt shop. I take care of IG and she takes care of Twitter and Pinterest, but we basically split all of the other responsibilities- the writing, the marketing, the photos, the designing.

Philosophy:I never look back Darling, it distracts me from the now

Best Advice: If you don’t know where you want to go, then it doesn’t matter which path you take

Current Dream: To figure out how I can live in Cinderella Castle….anyone, anyone?

Vice: Shoes. I just love them. Oh yea….and coffee.

Something Disney: Have courage and be kind -Cinderella

Giant Flaw: I’m too nice. It’s seriously annoying

Something Classic: Audrey Hepburn. Always Audrey Hepburn

Fave Fairytale: The Little Mermaid

Crush:Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them)

Current Obsession: New Zealand

I am a single mom to G, the little beauty in the picture with me. I first took her to Disney when she was 7, after (finally) graduating Physical Therapy school and we’ve been coming ever since. We have APs and try to get down to Disney whenever we can find a cheap flight.Everything I do, I do for her and want to show her, that while Prince Charming is great, you don’t need one to have a happy ending.

I work in an outpatient clinic as well a rehab facility and while my job can be exhausting, it is very rewarding. Because of that, I’m so happy to have this blog and our shop as a creative outlet?. I’m a big believer that being kind is the best thing you can be❤

I like to think that I’m a minimalist and extremely frugal but I also have an obsession with supporting small shops, so while I might not have a lot of “stuff” I do have about 40 pairs of Minnie ears(that’s ok right???) I love to travel outside of Disney about 50% of the trips I take are just with G and myself. We love adventure and exploring and my favorite trip so far has been our drive down the California coast. We are hoping to go to Iceland next year so we will see how that goes!I don’t love having my picture taken because I’m more a photographer at heart but I’m working on it????. My favorite park is Magic Kingdom, my favorite resort is The Polynesian and my favorite ride is Splash Mountain. If I could eat Dole Whip for every meal, I would ?So there you have it, me in a nutshell??
