Good morning everyone! This week on my blog, I will be bringing you a different guest post every day from Monday until Friday from a different blogger as I am away on my holidays this week! I’ll be chug, chug, chugging along on a boat along the Norfolk Broads, without a laptop or much WiFi for that matter so I thought it would be a perfect chance to get some guests on and talk about different topics than what I usually write about. So… let’s kick things off shall we and first up we have a wonderful post from Mairéad, all about her time working in Disney World!
I don’t do these chain award tag posts anymore if I’m honest. A lot of them are for new bloggers and I’m long from being a new blogger but I was tagged in one the other day which was mostly Disney themed and it looked like fun so I wanted to join in. I’m not sure if this tag is designed for new bloggers or just anyone who fancies doing it but what I’m going to do is tag 10 bloggers with under 500 blog followers at the end of this post for you to check out and spread the love! Thank you to Charlie from That is the Spell for my nomination, do go and check out his wonderful blog!
I really love doing fun and personal posts every now and again and I recently stumbled upon Gabriella’s video about ’10 things she would save in a fire‘. This video was intended to be done as a video ‘tag’ but as you’re well aware that I definitely, 100% do not do YouTube I decided to make it into a blog post instead! But credit to Gabby for creating the tag in the first place and you can find her video here. I really enjoyed doing this and thinking of the items I would save; it really makes you realise what is sentimental to you and what isn’t and I was surprised by some of my choices. So let’s assume every human in my house is clever enough to get out themselves, with everything left, here’s the 10 things I would save If my house was on fire *but touch wood it won’t be*.
You know me, I love Disney. That’s no secret. And a major part of many Disney films are the messages and lessons they try and teach us within them. Most of these films come with quotes and I for one, love a good quote. I think quotes (not just Disney ones) can help us realise that we’re not the only one feeling how we’re feeling and finding a quote that sums up perfectly how we’re feeling at that specific time… Well, is there anything like it? And as well as the fun and the magic, Disney has some amazing, life-affirming quotes and today I want to share with you 10 of my favourites!
If you cut open my veins (what a charming way to start a post), you’d probably find fairy dust instead of blood. Disney is in my blood and I’ve loved it ever since I was 5 years old and my parents took me to Disneyland. Granted, I wasn’t big enough to go on much but I can imagine it was an very magical time. Like most Disney fans, the movies play a huge part in that childhood (and adulthood) passion. Today I want to talk about those movies which aren’t always raved about – like Frozen or The Lion King. The hidden gems. The ones that often get over-looked. I absolutely adore all of these movies and can’t believe they’re not rated as highly as some others!
About a billion years now ago, I was tagged by Hailey from The Undateable Girl’s Diary to take part in ‘The Alice 1951 Tag’ (ok it was only a month ago but whatevs). The tag includes Alice in Wonderland themed questions from the original Disney classic, which I absolutely adore so I knew I wanted to give this one a go, I just completely forgot about it and ya’no, life got in the way – as per usual. But, better late than never so here are my answers and I will tag anyone who loves Disney and Alice in Wonderland! But don’t forget to credit Danielle, from Underland to Wonderland who created the tag!
10 days ago, it was my 24th birthday (I wrote a post here) and I’ve never done a birthday present haul before due to a fear of it appearing show-offy or something but I figured it’s my blog and I can post what the hell I like. Yes, it’s taken me 3 and a half years of blogging to actually realise that. As I said in my birthday post (which you should have read by now, if not I’m totes disappointed), I’m not a huge fan of my birthday and I didn’t ask for much. In fact, of all my presents I actually only asked for 2 of them, the rest were surprises which I am very thankful for.
I love every aspect of a Disneyland Paris holiday: from the journey on the Eurostar, the hotel, the parades and the character meets. But the rides and attractions also play a huge part of the holiday for me. I’m not a lover of big, big rides so Disneyland is ideal for me because most of the rides aren’t too scary but some are just enough to give you a thrill! I’ve spent many an hour queuing for all the rides at Disneyland Paris so here are some of my favourites.
I was talking to my friend recently about Disney princesses and other females in Disney films, when I mentioned that Pocahontas, Mulan and Esmeralda were my favourites when I was little. ‘What?!’ she exclaimed, ‘Those are the worst ones!’
This got me thinking about Disney films which I love but don’t seem to have won over as many people as the BIG Disney films. These are the films which I will watch over and over, know the songs off by heart and adore the storyline and characters, but which would be easy to forget about if you visited the Disney Store or any of the Disney parks because they don’t seem to get a look in when it comes to merchandise, characters or shows.

As well as it’s memorable characters, uplifting moments and incredible songs, Disney films are also often known for their extremely emotional scenes. It doesn’t matter that it’s an animation or that you’re 23 years-old – some Disney films will never fail to make you cry. Here’s 5 of my most heart-wrenching Disney moments, although it was extremely hard to narrow down!
