Fun Findings Friday #177

Oh hey, Friday! Today’s an extra great one because the highly-anticipated Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits theaters! As a huge Harry Potter nerd who went to the midnight book releases and movie screenings growing up, my excitement levels are through the roof! Plus, we’ve officially made it to the best time of the year! 24/7 Christmas music is already playing on the radio and festive decorations are starting to pop up everywhere!

Anker Dual USB Charger

I’m always looking for products to make my life easier and my most recent find is in this awesome dual USB charger. While I’ve been using it at home for quick charges at my desk, it’s been an especially great travel accessory, allowing me to charge up 2 of my USB products (i.e. iPhone and Apple Watch) simultaneously, without having to choose upping one battery’s life over the other. The plug part also folds up, making this easy to transport and use on-the-go!


theSkimm’s Tunes for Thanksgiving

theSkimm is my absolute FAVORITE newsletter, and it’s FREE! If you don’t already get it in your inbox, you can sign up here and stay up-to-date on the latest news and other important things you should know, and it reads like a convo with your bestie. In honor of Thanksgiving next week, theSkimm put together an awesome “Thank’skimming” playlist. While there aren’t any Christmas tunes in it (I’m sure that one will come at the end of next week), it’s filled with a mix of great tunes to play in your kitchen while preparing for Thanksgiving!


Beauty and the Beast Trailer

If you haven’t seen the new trailer for the Beauty and the Beast movie, check it out below! As one of my favorite Disney movies I was a little skeptical when it was announced that a remake was happening. But you guys, Emma Watson looks like THE perfect Belle and I can’t wait to see this in March! What are your thoughts on the live (real people) versions of the Disney movies starting to roll out?

    FREAKING OUT over the Beauty and the Beast trailer. I seriously have watched it like 20 times, haha! Growing up, my nickname was Belle or Chelsabelle after the movie because I loved to read and loved to listen to stories, so naturally Beauty and the Beast was my favorite movie. And I’m SO excited about the cast!

      Aww I love that! I don’t think they could’ve cast a more perfect Belle – I love Emma Watson!

    • November 22, 2016 / 11:43 PM

    I just about died when I saw the Beauty and the Beast trailer! Belle is my favorite princess and it’s going to be so awesome to see it in real life, especially since Emma Watson is going to be Belle! Have you watched the video that shows the trailer for the cartoon side by side with the real life trailer? They’re pretty much the same and it’s awesome!

    • November 22, 2016 / 11:47 PM

      I have! I’m so glad they kept it (at least based on the side by side) so true to the original. We all love it so much so there’s a very high bar set already. I know we’re all going to love it though!

    • November 22, 2016 / 11:46 PM

      Same! It already looks so true to the original and I love the casting choices!

    • November 22, 2016 / 11:47 PM

      Me too! The trailer is perfect!

    My husband and I love our dual USB chargers. We even have a quad in our car. It’s absolutely genius.

    • November 22, 2016 / 11:48 PM

      Ooh good idea! You never know when you’ll need to charge things up!

  10. November 20, 2016 / 10:01 PM

    That trailer made me so excited!!! Beauty and the Beast was one of my favorites as a kid :)

    • November 22, 2016 / 11:49 PM

      Same! It makes me excited to see what they do with the other princesses since I’m sure they’ll end up redoing those as well!

  11. November 21, 2016 / 3:02 PM

    • November 22, 2016 / 11:49 PM
