Make It Pink, Make It Blue

Make it pink, make it blue

Make it pink, make it blue

I think this might be one of my favourite outfits for my upcoming Disney trip! It is, of course, based on Sleeping Beauty, which was my favourite Disney film and favourite princess as a child. I also love a flannel shirt and an excuse to get new Mickey ears.

The shirt is from the awesome Cakeworthy, which I bought towards the end of last year. I’m so glad I got it when I did because I’d been looking at it for a while, and its actually sold out now so I definitely timed my purchase right! As soon as I decided that I wanted to turn it into an outfit for this trip, I knew exactly the top I wanted to pair it with – this Make It Blue tank from 2319 Threads, which I’d seen on Instagram and I had a discount code!

To top it off (quite literally!) I commissioned these GORGEOUS custom ears from ImagineEars. I’d been thinking about getting a pair of sequin ears for some time, and I’m so glad I did because I love these!

Oh, and if you were wondering, I’m Team Blue!

The Disney Princess Tag

The lovely Jade tagged me to do the Disney Princess Tag, so here it goes!


1. Which princess do you like the least?

I know she’s the first and everything, but Snow White really doesn’t do it for me! I find her voice in the film kinda annoying, but I’d love to meet her in the parks!

2. Which princess do you adore most?

I love Rapunzel, but I don’t think that’s much of a secret!

3. Which princess do you relate to most?

Definitely Anna. I’m clumsy, awkward and don’t know when to stop talking, and sometimes don’t know if I’m elated or gassy.

4. Which sidekick do you wish you had?

Pascal, he’s so sassy!

5. Which best friend would you like to hang out with?

I’d love to hang out with Pegasus, I bet he’s really fun to fly with!

Um, Flynn, hello!

Personally, I think being raised by three fairies in the woods sounds pretty cool..

Sleeping Beauty’s! Its pink and pretty!

9. Which dress would you love to own?

Briar Rose for casual wear, and Cinderella’s live action dress for twirling!

10. Which voice do you wish you had?

Tiana’s voice is amazing!

11. Which two princesses do you think would be best friends?

Probably Rapunzel and Anna; they’d be a perfect pairing!

Jasmine and Snow White, but I can’t put my finger on why..

Sebastian and Mushu

Philip and Charming, two classics

Gaston falling into the mud, ha!

17. Which movie has your favourite soundtrack?

I love the music from Princess and the Frog!

18. Which scene makes you cringe most?

The kiss between Naveen and Tiana when he turns her into a frog, uck.

19. What story do you wish was your life?

I really like Tiana’s story; I love her work ethic and how she proves to everyone that if you work hard enough you can have and live your dreams

20. Which movie do you love most?

Sleeping Beauty was my favourite princess film when I was a kid, but everyone knows I adore Tangled. I hate picking favourites though because I love them all!

I See What You Did There, Valspar..

I’m a bit of a DIY junkie. I can’t wait to move into my own place and start decorating and re-decorating constantly, and one of the things on my Disney Bucket List is to have at least one Disney themed room in my house, so this week, with the help of Valspar Paint UK, I’ve been looking at ways you can bring a little Disney into your home, without going too overboard!

The challenge I set myself, and this is going to be an ongoing series with different themes each month, is to pick out colour schemes to represent Disney films using Valspar colours, but only if the name of the colour relates to the film! You see, each of Valspar’s 2000 pre-selected colours has its own name, from the cutesy Party Pattie and Freshly Squeezed to the slightly stranger Cabbage Juice and Warm Alpaca!

Every colour can be mixed in whatever paint you need, from matt emulsion for walls to gloss for wood and metal trims, and even masonry paint, so you can throw old ideas of painting plain out the window, and colour outside the lines!

So this week I’ve taken on Disney princess films!


Frozen – Cold as Ice (R191E) Frosty Aqua (R219F) Snow Flurries (R184E)

Once I found Cold As Ice, the rest of the colours came easy. Lots of the pale icy colours look great together, but I really liked the hint of purple Snow Flurries brings to the table, without being too in your face.


Brave – Fiery Sky (133E) highland Loch (R193D) Shadows of Time (R220A)

The names of these colours are a little more loosely linked to the film itself, but Shadows of Time really reminded me of the magic in the movie, and Fiery Sky made me think of Merida’s fierce personality.


Tangled – See the Light (R143A) Birthday Bouquet (R63C) Purple hibiscus (R50D) Lantern Glow (132C)

I actually had a fifth colour for this colour scheme called Sun Sparkle, but it was very similar to See the Light. I think the names of these are really self-explanatory, but the photo makes the colours look a little darker, they look better together in real life!


Princess and the Frog – Bayou Serenade (R13C) Ribbet! (R236A) Frog Prince (R226A)

I love that all the names of these tie in together because they look so good together! Bayou Serenade would make a great main colour (grey is totally in right now), with Frog Prince as a feature wall and Ribbet! for the skirting and other features.


Mulan – Ming Dynasty (R160A) Green Reflection (R225F) Samurai Fusion (R70E)

My camera’s gone a little wacky today, Green Reflection isn’t quite as light as it seems here, its a shade or two lighter than the green Mulan wears in the films. Samurai Fusion and Ming Dynasty are great feature colours!


Pocahontas – Nice Tan (R114C) Soul Searching (R6F) Soul Blue (R168C)

I really like this selection; I watched Pocahontas last night so I’m feeling it right now. Soul Searching is more brown than the photo shows!


Aladdin – Three Wishes (R227E) Bengal Tiger (W24C) Glistening Aqua (R128E)

Ok, so Glistening Aqua doesn’t strictly fit into the theme of the movie, but I’m sure you can say water is somewhere in the film, and the colour matched Jasmine’s outfit so perfectly!


Beauty and the Beast – Bonjour (R140C) Consomme (R119C) Pain Au Chocolat (R98F)

I struggled a lot with this one as there are so many colour scheme options that could all represent the film, but I went for a French theme that incorporated Belle’s classic ballgown!


The Little Mermaid – Cajun Shrimp (R72E) Enchanted Mermaid (R220C) Purple hibiscus (R50D)

Ok, so Enchanted Mermaid is the perfect name, and a great colour. I kept to Ariel’s classic look when picking out the colours, which are all very bold so perfect for playing around with artsy stripes and tape tricks.


Sleeping Beauty – Sleepy Kisses (R29A) Budding Beauty (R32A) Princess heartbreak (R68E)

The camera has washed the pale pinks out a little bit, but either would make a great light wall colour, with the other for accents and skirting and Princess heartbreak as a feature wall.


Cinderella – Daydream Believer (R61B) Little Glass Slipper (R171E) Periwinkle Dream (R159E)

Little Glass Slipper, come on! I was half expecting to find a colour called A Dream is a Wish, but no luck so I settled for two more dreamy colours that look perfect together.

And I totally failed with Snow White, but mainly cos I totally spaced and forgot about her!

Disney Princess Converses

I live in Converse All-Stars; have done ever since I got my first pair over 6 years ago. My entire shoe collection, with the exception of one pair of sandals, one pair of heels and two pairs of boots, consist of Converses – high tops for winter and low tops for summer is how I see it!

My dad is also a huge wearer of Converses, and often uses his creative talents to create his own personalised ones on the Converse website’s ‘Design Your Own’ feature, which inspired this Fashion Tuesday post..

In my opinion, All Stars are the best shoes for wearing around Disney parks; lightweight and cool enough for Florida heat, with a solid sole to support your feet, and incredibly hard-wearing. And while they come in a spectacular range of colours and patterns, none of them are Disney enough.. So I spent an evening creating Disney Princess themed shoes, using just the DYO app on the Converse website, and here’s what I came up with:

1. Snow White

2. Cinderella
