20 Facts About My Disney Life Tag

So a little while back the gorgeous Amy from Cocktails in Teacups tagged me to do this awesome Disney tag, and I must admit I fangirlled just a little. Amy was one of the first bloggers I followed and I’m so lucky to be able to call her a friend now, but sometimes I still get a little swept up in how much I admire her!


The tag is simple, 20 facts about Disney in your life, so here we go:

  1. Disney love is a family affair, and I’ve been on trips to the parks with almost everyone in my family.
  2. When I was a kid, whenever I met Pluto I used to pull on his tongue. Looking back on it, it seems a little cruel, but it was always meant in a playful way!
  3. The character I identify most with is Honey Lemon from Big Hero 6
  4. I don’t collect pins, but I do have a fairly extensive collection of Vinylmations and Tsum Tsums!
  5. I own all of the Disney animated classics on DVD
  6. I’d love to cosplay, but I worry that my glasses would hold me back
  7. I love all of the Disney parks, but Disneyland CA will always be extra special to me.
  8. Disney princes have never appealed to me really, with the exception of Flynn Rider (and maybe Kristoff)
  9. I have a huge collection of Mickey ears, and I’m forever wanting more!
  10. I have a tattoo of the castle on the back of my neck.
  11. Whenever I book a Disney trip, I’ll probably spend more time planning my outfits than I will on anything else
  12. I never used to think much of Merida as a princess, but since I met her in Disneyland Paris last month and had the best time with her, I’ve totally changed my mind!
  13. The first mac and cheese I ever ate was in a bread cone from the Cozy Cone in Disneyland back in January!
  14. If I could be in any Disney park show, it would be Mickey and the Magical Map
  15. We have Mickey Mouse cutlery in our house
  16. I never used to like Tinkerbell, but since watching her spin-off movies I’m kinda obsessed with all of Pixie Hollow!
  17. I’ve run 4 RunDisney races, with 2 more to go this year and a potential 6 next year!
  18. The only time I like Starbucks is in the Disney parks. I never go into them otherwise.
  19. I pretty much can’t watch any show or parade without tearing up.
  20. I’ve made some of the best friends through Disney, and I’m eternally grateful for that.

I tag Lizi, Jade and Kayleigh!

The ‘If I Could..’ Tag

I was inspired by Danielle‘s perfect responses to the ‘If I Could..’ Tag, and she suggested that I gave it a go myself, so I thought why not!?


If I could live anywhere:

I really love Bournemouth, and I don’t think I could really picture myself living anywhere else, but I guess it would be kinda cool to live in Orlando or Anaheim if I had to choose somewhere else.

If I could have any home:

I really picture myself in a modern build house, with lots of light and space and quite an open floor plan. I’d love a big kitchen and a sewing/craft room, ha!

If I could have any garden:

I’d love a big garden, I’d love to be able to continue keeping chickens, and maybe a dog or cat so plenty of space would be welcome! I wouldn’t want anything too fancy or difficult to maintain, grass space, and an area to grow vegetables, and maybe an awesome tree for climbing!

If I could be on holiday right now:

All I can think about right now is my upcoming Disney trip, so if we could just fast forward a few weeks that would be fab! I’m looking forward to Disneyland California the most!

If I could have any job:

I’m still on the path to my dream job: I’m a cake decorator and would love to open a cake shop with tea-rooms because it would mean I could do what I love every day, and would also be able to put time into my blog and other hobbies, as well as making lots of people really happy!

If I could have any talent:

I’d love to be able to draw and do graphic design. I can draw a few things, and am creative in plenty of other ways, but I’ve always wished I could translate what I see in my head to paper.

If I could live any day again:

I don’t know if I would want to relive a good day again, or go back and change a bad day, but I must be pretty lucky because no day in particular stands out for me! Why look back?

I tag Amy, Shawnee, Lizi and Sammie, and anyone else who fancies it! Can’t wait to hear everyone’s responses!


The Love/Hate Tag

I was tagged by the lovely Sam over at The Belle Jar to do this tagged, originally inspired by another lovely lady, Danielle from Underland to Wonderland!

Aim of the game is simple – I have to name 10 things I love, and 10 things I hate, just a fun way for you to get to know a little big more about me! Lets do this..


1. Being part of such a great community of bloggers and Disney lovers

2. The feeling of finishing a really great run or workout

3. Christmas, especially giving presents!

4. Finishing a crossword, sad but true!

5. Planning and organising

6. Getting post!

7. Long hot showers – I don’t like baths

8. Meeting targets and goals

9. Clean sheet night!

10. Egg fried rice – I could just eat that forever!


1. Cyclists on the pavement – if you want road users to respect you, you have to follow road laws yourself!

2. Foods that mix savoury and sweet concepts – savoury pancakes, cheesecake etc

3. When great things happen for people who don’t deserve it, or don’t even care

4. People who think they’re too good for others

5. Constant negativity and judgement

6. Tomatoes – I love everything tomato based, but actual tomatoes are weird

7. Being unable to sleep

8. Losing or wasting money

9. Bad drivers – not indicating, being in the wrong lane, cutting people off, using phones etc..

10. Rude customers – staff are only ever there to help, so treat them decently!

I tag Amy, Lizi, Shawnee, Kimberley and Sophie, and if anyone else wants to give it a go, drop me links!


Blogger Interview Tag

Thank you to Danielle for tagging me in the Blogger Interview Tag, its a great way for me to share a little bit more about myself and the motive behind my blogging!


How did you get into blogging?

When we booked our 2014 Disney World holiday, I started researching ways to make the trip even more special, and I discovered that there is a whole world of Disney bloggers out there, and they inspired me! Plus, after spending the amount of time I did preparing for my time in the most magical place on Earth, I figured I might as well share my secrets in the hopes that others can enjoy it as much as I do!

What advice would you give to a blogger just starting out?

Do it for yourself; you’re not gonna become huge overnight, it takes time and effort, and if you don’t love doing it, you never will.

Also, become part of the community. Bloggers are great people, and blogging isn’t a competition, so make friends and have fun!

What would be your dream campaign?

I think this depends entirely on what is meant by ‘campaign’.. If we’re talking brands, obviously I’d love to get involved with Disney, or RunDisney, or anything Disney related really! But realistically, there are loads of great brands that I’d love to be able to work with: Asos, Lush, Barry M, Fabletics, I could go on..

Alternatively, if its not about charity campaigns, Children in Need and Parkinson’s UK are two hugely important charities to me, so the opportunity to raise funds and awareness on their behalf would always be welcome!

Do you have a plan for your blog?

Yes and no. I love my blog so much, and its growing so much which is amazing. I’m currently playing around with the idea of a slight rebrand for 2016, but its still just a vague plan, and nothing’s set in stone right now. One thing’s for sure, I will be blogging!

What do you think about rankings?

I like numbers, especially when they’re good ones! I check my blog stats daily, but its not a contest for me – every view, every visitor and every follower makes my day. I see stats as marks of my improvement, not medals.

I tag Amy, Lizi and Shawnee, and if anyone else wants to share their answers, drop me a link! 🙂


The Halloween Tag

Well happy Halloween folks, the spooky day is finally upon us!

So I was tagged by the lovely Amy from Scariel’s Grotto to do this tag, and you can read her original post here! Well here we go..

What is your favourite Halloween movie?

I must admit I’m fairly pathetic when it comes to any scary movies, but I will admit Scream is a slight guilty pleasure of mine, if you can call it a Halloween film. Oh, and I loved The Little Vampire as a kid, must watch that again to see if its still any good..

If you were in a horror movie, how far would you get?

I think this depends quite a lot on the movie.. I’m really not good with anything too scary, but I’m also really feisty so could definitely defend myself pretty well.

What is your favourite memory of Halloween?

It might seem silly, but Trick or Treating with my girlfriends when we were like 14? Our costumes were fairly weak and it was a totally silly night, but it was pretty great.

Your best/worst Halloween costume?

I spent the majority of Halloweens as a kid dressing as a cat because I didn’t want to be a witch, and I recall one year I had a full on onesie-type costume to go to a friends party, and her kid sister had the same one which was hideously embarrassing, even if I was only about 10 at the time! Last year I made my own Maleficent horns, which I wore with a black starry playsuit and dark lipstick which I loved, even if it was just to stay at home with a broken wrist!

How do you get into the Halloween spirit?

Carving pumpkins, 100%

Favourite Halloween decorations?

As a kid my sister usually had Halloween themed birthday parties, and I remember we used to have this huge spider on our ceiling, which I’m fairly certain was made of bin bags but it was cool all the same. Oh, and fake cobwebs!

Name one unusual thing that you’re afraid of

Eels. Cannot cope.

Vampires or Zombies?

I think I’d rather be faced with a vampire than a zombie in a scary situation, because vampires are far more civilised.

Werewolves or Ghosts?

Ghosts I think, I like to believe they’re all like Casper

Creepy dolls or creepy clowns?

Tough one.. I think dolls, cos at least they’re inanimate.

Do you believe in ghosts?

I used to watch a lot of Ghost Hunters, the tv show, and some of the stuff they picked up seemed really conclusive, but I’m still not 100% sold.. I do think the energy of a person can hang around for a little while though.

So that’s me! If you fancy giving the same questions a go, feel free, and drop me a comment so I can check it out!

Now, go have a spooky-good day!

Disneyland Paris: This or That Tag

So the lovely Lizi tagged me in her Disneyland Paris: This or That challenge, and now I’m back from my trip, I’m finally getting round to my response! I went to Disneyland Paris a lot as a kid, but all before I was 6/7, so I have very few memories of those visits, so this is primarily based on my birthday trip, and as I hope to visit a few more times in the coming year or so, these may change, but for now..

Disneyland Park or Walt Disney Studios Park?

Disneyland 100%, you just can’t beat that magic!

It’s a Small World or Peter Pans Flight

I may be the only person in the world, but I love It’s a Small World, cheesy and catchy as it may be

Hotel Cheyenne or Hotel Santa Fe?

I don’t think I’ve stayed at either, but I like the Cars theme at Santa Fe.

Cable Car Bake Shop or Market House Deli?

Cable Car Bake Shop is just a little bit prettier in my eyes

Crush Coaster or RC Racer?

Crush Coaster. It blew me away when I tried it for the first time on my last trip!

Halloween or Christmas?

Christmas, although I did love the Halloween buzz during my last visit

Star Tours or Buzz?

I don’t really think you can beat a good Buzz!

Animagique or Cinemagique?

I love them both, I really do, but I think it has to be Animagique

Le Carrousel de Lancelot or Le Pays de Contes de Fees?

Oh I love carousels, no competition there!

Flying Carpets over Agrabah or Orbitron?

I’ve actually never been on Orbitron! And being on a flying carpet is pretty cool..

Sequoia Lodge or Newport Bay?

Newport Bay. It reminds me so much of The Boardwalk in Disney World which is one of my favourite places ever!

Mad Hatter’s Tea Cups or Dumbo the Flying Elephant?

Dumbo takes it for me, I can’t stomach tea cups so well these days!

Pizzeria Bella Notte or Colonel Hathi’s Pizza Outpost?

I’ve not been to either, but I think Colonel Hathi’s because Bella Notte is just a little out of the way of everything.

Swing into Spring or Frozen Summer Fun?

I’ve never been in the parks for either of these, but I think Swing into Spring is just so much prettier.

Blanche-Neige et les Sept Nains or Les Voyages de Pinocchio?

I think it has to be Pinocchio, Snow White is just a little too creepy for my liking

Alice’s Curious Labyrinth or La Cabane des Robinson treehouse?

Treehouse for sure, I love this views from the top

Liberty Arcade or Discovery Arcade?

Liberty has Casey’s, I think we have a winner!

Fantasyland or Frontierland?

Fantasyland is really where the magic happens in my eyes

Pirates of the Caribbean or Phantom Manor?

Pirates of the Caribbean will always hold a special place in my heart

Cowboy Cookout or Au Chalet de la Marionette?

Chalet de la Marionette is more my kind of food

Space Mountain or Hollywood Tower of Terror?

Oooh.. Space Mountain. I have a love/hate relationship with Tower of Terror!

Big Thunder Mountain or Indiana Jones?

For Disneyland Paris, it’s Big Thunder Mountain, but probably the other way round for Disneyland California

Inventions or Auberge de Cendrillon?

Um, Auberge has princesses..?

Disney Fashion or Disney Gallery?

Disney Gallery – I love Disney artwork!

Discoveryland or Adventureland?

Discoveryland has some of my favourite rides, and I always end up getting a little bit lost in Adventureland so..

Cafe Hyperion or The Lucky Nugget Saloon?

Not been to either, but I’ve always wanted to eat at Lucky Nugget!

La Gallerie de la Belle au Bois Dormant or La Taniere du Dragon?

As nice as the dragon is to visit, the castle is pure Disney Magic!


Annette’s Diner or Planet Hollywood?

I’ve never eaten at Annette’s, so I have to choose Planet Hollywood, but that may change!
