A few of my favourite things … 1

I am going to do a series of some of my favourite Disney related things that you can do, see, shop and participate in online!

I am starting off today with my new favourite Disney Podcast and that is the fabulous IMDO Podcast which is hosted by Mark.

IMDO logo

The format of this new podcast is a radio show, featuring the most wide ranging (and sometimes obscure) Disney music. Combined with interactive call in’s from Disney fans all over the world to share their ‘Disney Opinion’ which can sometimes result in a healthy debate and occasionally just descends into hilarious chaos in the case of ‘sausage gate’

I myself have called in to the show and despite being very nervous to start with it was a really fun experience and one that I am still getting stick for now. So if you have been listening and are considering calling in to share your ‘Disney Opinion’ Do it!

You can listen to the historic footage at Awdio and that is also where you can listen live to the podcast when its broadcasting! There is even an Awdio App that you can download to your smartphone.

If you want to know when upcoming shows are scheduled to be or even ask any questions to Mark, the host then you can find him on twitter @IMDOPodcast or find him on Facebook here

Wish List – March 2016

Hello!

You may or may not know that I am a complete and utter shop-o-holic. I love to buy clothes and shoes and make up and jewellery and basically ALL the things …

So it should come as no surprise that I regularly make up wish lists of things that I NEED right now. So, I thought I’d share it with you because you never know when a random stranger might be looking to buy you a gift – haha!

Princess dress

I am attending the Cinderella Brunch at Inventions on the 3rd March this year and am having trouble finding something to wear. I was browsing through Torrid and found this perfect Princess Dress the white and blue print reminds me of that cute pottery that you see on the antiques roadshow and the underbust cut with open neckline is a really good cut for me. Torrid stock up to a US size 32 (which is a UK size 34) so is an amazing place to shop as a fatty – sadly the $58 international shipping charge is a bit hard to swallow!

Alice Dress

Whilst browsing for my brunch dress I fell head over heels in love with this gorgeous Alice in Wonderland Dress – it is beasically perfect and needs no further description. I will own this.

Loungefly Disney bags are a mild obsession of mine. I have 2 Minnie Mouse, an Alice in Wonderland, R2D2 and Captain Phasma all in bag form. The problem being they keep releasing more ….

Darth Vader

I am definitely a fan of the dark side and so will be needing to get this Darth Vader Loungefly Bag in my life very soon!

I also challenge anyone not to love this adorable BB8 Bag by Loungefly because frankly, that little orange and white driod is the cutest thing ever.

If you thought you’d get away with me only adding one clothing brand on my wish list then I’m afraid you are going to be sorely disappointed. BeBaGo on Etsy creates the most amazing custom design dresses and aprons and is such a delight to work with that I’ve been back to her several times.

Alice Dress 1

This Alice in Wonderland inspired dress by eBaGo Alice Dress is currently in my sights as I need one of these in my life!

You may have noticed that Alice in Wonderland is one of my most favourite things – I even have a chair in my house dedicated to AiW plushes and cushions which I always need to add to ….

Alice Cushion

Thisshopreallyrocks on Etsy is one of the best places to buy fabulous cushions! I have brought quite a few already and there are still so many more that I want!

FemmeDeBloom on Etsy makes seriously magical jewellery! I have so much of her stuff and am always finding more that I want like these earrings …BMacaroon Mickey

Because who doesn’t want to wear cute Mickey Macaroons on their ears? You can get yours from Femmedebloom on Etsy

I think I had best stop there or i’ll go on for days!

Whats on your March wish list?

Let me know!

Swing into Spring

Hello!

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged and for that I am incredibly sorry – life has been running away with me somewhat as my little business over at my Queen Ursula Shop has taken off more than I could have possibly imagined and is keeping me VERY busy!

I just wanted to pop in and let everyone know that I am heading off to Disneyland Paris on Monday for a few days to see the Swing into Spring festival!

Swing into spring

Spring is my absolute favourite time of year at Disneyland Paris. It is so bright, colourful and vibrant in the way that they decorate the park, then add into that the amazing shows, parades and flash mobs and the magic is enhanced tenfold!

This trip will be a little different for me as I am going with my Mummy, Sister and my two beautiful nieces Freya (4) and Evie (1) so this is the first time that I will experience my favourite park through the eyes of a child. I am also staying in the Disneyland Hotel for the first time this trip! I am very excited to experience the luxury of the pink hotel and not having to wander through the village following my nightly glowtini’s in Café Fantasia!

I have been closely following everyone’s Spring trips on social media and they are just making me more and more excited to go – the amount of characters that have been out at the moment is incredible and I’m keen to stand in the Alice corner of the hub for Goofy’s garden party to see my fave characters!

I will also be there for the final day of Star Tours going to Endor! After the 16th March 2016 the Star Tours ride will be being closed for about a year (I think) to be updated to bring it in line with the new Star Wars films.

I have, as usual, meticulously planned my outfits for this trip. I will post up photos when I get back to show you all what I wore! Needless to say one outfit is Star Wars themed!!

There are going to be a lot of people at the parks this time that I know from social media and from meeting in the parks before so I cannot wait to hang out with some really fabulous people!!

Please keep an eye on my social media to see live photos and videos from my trip. I am hoping to utilise Periscope and Snapchat a bit more this trip!
