Plus Size Disney Wish List 

The availability of Plus Sized Disney clothing is pretty crappy in the UK. This means that I end up spending hours lusting over American sites which have extortionate shipping fees and then on top of that customs fees when the items finally arrive. That being said, it doesn’t stop me doing it and I thought I’d share some of my fave items online at the moment 

Starting with Torrid 


Jack Skellington Dress – Torrid 


Coco Kimono – Torrid


Mickey Raincoat – Torrid


Mickey Leggings – Torrid


Scar T Shirt – Torrid

We had some good news in the UK when EMP UK opened here. This is an app which brings clothing from American stores to the U.K. so we can get clothing from Torrid and Hot Topic without the shipping fees. The prices tend to be higher as a result but that’s to be expected. Unfortunately at the moment the plus size availability is limited so I have only included items that I enjoy which come in a size 26/28 and above – so would fit me! 


Lilo & Stitch Dress – EMP UK


Cinderella Dress – EMP UK


Aladdin Dress – EMP UK

Yours clothing usually have some Disney design Jammies available for the plus size market so that’s nice. Right now I’m loving this cute night dress


Minnie Nightie – Yours Clothing

Etsy has a plethora of amazing companies that make bespoke Disney designs, including t shirts, dresses, cosplays etc … 

I’ve included a few of my faves right now 


 Peter Pan Mermaid Tee – Etsy 


Figment Tee – Etsy


Cheshire Cat Skirt – Etsy

 

Hocus Pocus Tee – Etsy

This little lot would cost me a small fortune to buy … a girl can dream though can’t she?  😂

What are you eyeing up online at the moment?

Disney Halloween Twitter Gift Exchange

A few weeks ago I saw a tweet from the lovely @kindnesscourage asking if anyone wished to be added to the #DisneyhalloweenGE and I couldn’t resist the urge to get involved as I do like to send a surprise gift! 

Full details of the Halloween gift exchange were shared on Hannah’s blog here but in summary you provided details of your fave Disney characters and films and were added to a list. When purchasing, you had a budget of £10 to create a gift box for a name you would be given on the 2nd October along with details of their fave characters etc. 

We knew that the deadline for posting the boxes was Friday 13th October but as I was away for a week from that date I was excited to get my gift when I returned from holiday! I wasn’t disappointed! 

Upon arriving home today I received this gorgeous package 


From the very lovely @laurenroseh on Twitter! I cannot thank Lauren enough for my beautiful gift. 

I stated that Alice in Wonderland and Ursula were my faves and she bought be a stunning pen and awesome villain socks to cover that. I also got a gorgeous mickey purse and yummy chocolate pumpkin lolly!  

I am so happy and glad I took part in the exchange! Please take a look at the #disneyhalloweenGE to see other gifts sent and received. 

I also encourage you to follow @kindnesscourage on Twitter and her awesome blog for lovely Disney content and fun events like this exchange. 

Do you think the exchange is something you might choose to take part in next year? 

Thank Alyssa xx

Plus Size 25th Outfits – Part 2

Boyfriend Jeans – Simply Be 

Silver Iron on Star patches for Jeans – 99p each EBay

A few of my favourite things … 2

Dedicated to DLP


Dedicated to DLP comes in 3 different formats, there is a blog , a You Tube channel and a Podcast all run by the lovely Steve, with a little help from his friends!

As well as all those resources? You can also find them on Twitter and Facebook as Dedicated to Disneyland Paris. These are the places where you can get involved with the blog/you tube and podcast and share your opinions.  

The blog is a wonderful resource for all DLP related news. Steve updates press releases, rumours, trip reports, reviews, pin releases and basically everything that you could wish for that is DLP related. If your aren’t already then you really should subscribe to this blog if you are a DLP fan! 


An offshoot of the blog is the Dedicated to DLP You Tube Channel. Here, Steve uploads weekly news update videos as well as occasional collaborations with other DLP you tubers. I know that Steve took some vlog footage on his Xmas trip to DLP so as well as the usual trip report updates, I think we will be getting some vlogging coming in the near future. 

Steve has a very positive demeanour, he is very personable and easy to watch so I really enjoy the You Tube element of Dedicated to DLP. He also takes a very honest approach to his reporting and will share rumours, but always makes it clear that they are not official in any way to avoid disappointment.

The final part of dedicated to DLP is the amazing podcast. This is how I found Steve and Mark and continues to be my favourite recorded podcast to listen to. Steve is joined by Mark (@fusemp on Twitter) for most of these podcasts which are a fun and lively chat about the latest DLP news, changes, rumours, updates and anything else DLP related.


If you want to know more about the podcast hosts, this About page is quite informative … 


The interaction between the hosts is amusing as they often disagree on topics. The podcast relies heavily on input from the social media followers too, Steve will often as for feedback/questions/suggestions for shows and they always credit the people who have contacted them. It’s lovely to have a podcast that is so involved in the DLP online community. 

All in all, if you haven’t had a chance to check out dedicated to DLP on any of its platforms, you are missing out. 

Go have a read/watch/listen and let me know what you think!

Lots of Love

Alyssa XX
