Romantic getaway wish-list *

Despite being in various long-term relationships, I can’t say I’ve ever really been on a proper “romantic getaway” before. I’m not a hugely romantic person but you never know what being whisked away to far off shores could do to a gal! I’m yet to find that one out (and I wouldn’t personally consider a week on a boat on the Norfolk Broads a “romantic getaway”, as fun as it was) but a girl can dream, right? From Thailand to Australia, Paris to Austria, I think anywhere has the potential to be the perfect destination for a romantic getaway, depending on your own personal preferences. Where one couple might find sky-diving and jet-skiing romantic activities to do together, another might not (I certainly would not…) So, if I had my way, money was no object and I could deal with heat a little better than I’m currently doing right now in this ridiculous UK heatwave, here is my wish-list of romantic getaway destinations!

Orlando

We all know I love Disney by now so any trip that involves Disney would be romantic to me! (As well as super fun and magical!) Not only would the U.S be a great place to visit, throw in Walt Disney World and you more or less have my ideal romantic getaway! I’ve only ever visited Disneyland Paris and whilst I love it and consider it my home from home, I’d like to check out one of the other resorts at some point in my life!

Phuket

I’m sure everyone has dreamed of Thailand once in their life, the beaches, the culture, the people, the food and the weather that people who have been always talk about. Although it’d probably be a bit on the hot side for me, with one of my all time favourite books and films being “The Beach”, Thailand would certainly be up there on my list of romantic getaways. If you’re in the business of wanting to visit Thailand yourself, Destination2 have some great Thailand all inclusive offers to check out!

Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi sounds like a really stunning, luxurious and magical place to visit. I’ve always liked the idea of going to the Middle East where it pays to be civilized and respectful. And of course, it’s the home of the final Formula 1 race of the season and assuming that I’ll be attending my romantic getaway with my partner, that certainly would be an ideal trip for us, as two highly enthusiastic Formula 1 fans! The glitz, the glamour, the luxury and the sound of engines, what more could you want?

Santorini

And finally, a little closer to home but still utterly beautiful, Santorini would definitely be on my list of romantic getaway destinations I’d love to visit. If all the photos I continuously pin on Pinterest are anything to go by, it truly is a beautiful place to visit. I’ve never been to Greece before but it’s always been somewhere I think I’d really like. My parents first holiday together was in Greece, so maybe that’s why!

Have you visited any of these places? Where would feature on your own romantic getaway dream wish list? Let me know!

My thoughts on Disney re-makes

At the time of writing this post (end of May), we have just been graced with the full trailer for the Christopher Robin movie, starring Ewan McGregor and everyone’s favourite bear, Winnie-the-Pooh. The release of the film is fast approaching and I’m certain I will cry all the tears then probably gone back to watch it again. I am a huge fan of Disney (obviously), and this year, I’ve worked hard to include more Disney related content into my blog because it is and always has been a huge part of my life, so why wouldn’t I? The films are so magical and mean an awful lot to me as I’m sure they do to a lot of people who have grown up with the magic of Disney.

Magic Chest book subscription box review

I have reviewed a couple of bookish subscription boxes before in the past and I bloody love them – definitely more so than beauty subscription boxes. That’s obviously the bookworm in me talking but there’s nothing quite like getting a package and knowing there’s so much bookish goodness inside waiting to be opened! When I was contacted by Magic Chest*, a Fantasy based book subscription company, I was on it like a car bonnet. As it usually works with these types of boxes, each month is a different “theme”. I was given the option of the May box or any of their previous boxes so I went with one of their older “Fairy Tales” themed boxes. You all know I love fairy tales; Disney, magic, re-tellings. Give me it all. So I was super excited to receive this box and see what was inside.

My favourite Disney movies

I know this topic has been done to absolute death on blogs and when I started writing more Disney related posts a couple of months ago, I thought I wouldn’t bother writing about my favourite films because like, does anyone really care? But after I put a poll out with a couple of Disney-related options on it, it turns out, that people do actually like reading these posts. If you’re a Disney fan, you’re going to be interested in what Disney things other Disney fans like – I assume!

My favourite Disney songs

Hello! I’m back with another Disney related post for you today! I’m soooo enjoying writing about Disney again, it’s totally ignited my love for it again and I’ve had Disney songs on repeat over the last few months. Of course, I have plenty of Disney soundtracks on my iTunes so this is the perfect time to talk about my favourite Disney songs. Of course I won’t be able to mention every single one and I’m by no means putting these in order (that’s just cruel and impossible!) but here are some of my favourite ever Disney songs!

My favourite Disneyland Paris attractions

Last month, I really enjoyed working on more Disney related posts such as What Disney Means to Me and My Favourite Disney Items. Disney has always been a huge part of my life ever since I was little, I have a Disney category on my blog but I rarely post anything in it so I’ve worked hard on turning that around and going forward, I would love to feature Disney related posts much more regularly. Disneyland Paris holds a very special place in my heart. It was my first holiday ever when I was 5 and I’ve been twice since then. I’m dying to go back which I have faith that I will do soon but for now, I’m talking about my favourite Disneyland Paris attractions!

* Apologies for the slightly dreadful quality images in this post. These were all taken on an old camera back in 2011.

Make a statement with Cardology *

Buying gifts for people is something I pride myself on. I always ensure that I look for something which is personal or a little different from the usual ‘stuff’. You know what I mean, a smelly set from Boots or a box of chocolates. There’s nothing wrong with those things of course – I’d never say no to a box of choccies! – but I like to put a lot of thought and effort into everything I buy anyone. Which often results in a lot of stressful scrolling and hectic brainstorming! Greetings cards can be just as special as the gifts. I always opt for a greeting card that matches the person I’m buying for. My dad will receive a funny one, my mum will receive a personalised one probably with a picture of our dog on – you get the gist!

March goals: How did I do?

I can’t believe we’re at the business end of March already. I hope this month has been good to you and you’ve achieved some cool stuff! I’m looking back over my March goals today to see how I did and I can safely say I did much better than I did in February, so that’s a bonus!

My favourite Disney items

I recently blogged about what Disney means to me and that was a post I really enjoyed writing. Disney is a huge part of my life, my self and my childhood so I would like to blog about it more. I’m not a collector of Disney merch. In fact, I’m not a collector of anything because I hate hoarding stuff and literally throw everything away at the first chance I get. However, I do have some treasured Disney items at home that I absolutely love and that mean a lot to me. I might not have four thousand Tsum Tsum’s or all the movies on DVD but in no particular order, here are 5 of my favourite Disney items I own!

What Disney means to me

A little while ago, I ran a poll on Twitter asking what kind of posts you’d like to see more of from me. I’m sure most of the people who voted just voted on the general kind of blog posts they like reading from anyone – not me specifically (I don’t think I’m that special) but still, I like to take on board what people enjoy reading and try and cater to that. One of the most popular options was Disney. Which surprised me a little bit. I know there’s a humongous Disney community on Twitter but there’s also a humongous amount of people who aren’t that bothered about Disney or who like it but wouldn’t necessarily go out of their way to read Disney related blog posts.
