It's been a year since I went to Disney - Disney Tag

Sunday, 25 June 2017
I honestly can't believe it's been a year since Matt and I flew to Disney World, Florida. It was such a magical holiday and we made so many memories that will stay with us forever. Disney has definitely become a place that means so much to Matt and I and we both hope to visit there together again soon.


I thought it would be a really nice idea to share a few of my favourite photos that were taken whilst we were in Disney and I also thought I would through the Disney tag in this post too. I found this tag floating around the blogging community and I loved the questions (however I did add an extra question at the end as there were only 9 questions, which slightly bugged me!).

01. What's your favourite Disney film?
I have so many Disney film favourites. I just love Disney so this question is so hard to choose just one. However, what I will do is list my top 5 films at the moment, those being: Moana, Big Hero 6, Wreck it Ralph, Lilo & Stitch and Pinocchio


02. Which Disney movie's scene would you have love to live?

Another really hard question as I would love to live so many moments in many different Disney films... There are two scenes that do come in to mind. The first being the lantern scene from Tangled and the second being the scene where Lilo, Stitch, Nani and David go surf boarding - honestly, one of my dreams is to go to Hawaii and another is to learn to surf - perfect scenario!



03. If you were a Prince, who would you be?
If I were a prince I would like to be Naveen from The Princess and The Frog. Yes, he's a little naïve at first and is not very favourable but you can't deny the passion he has towards music is just so fun. Also, he becomes a well respected prince by the end of the film and I love the journey he takes. He's also very funny!

04. If you were a Princess, who would you be?
If I were a princess for the day I would choose Moana because she is just super inspiring and coageous. She's just one confident gal and I love everything about the film Moana, especially the culture. I will also choose another Princess as Moana is technically not a princess! Another princess I would love to be is Merida from Brave for pretty much the same reason as Moana. She again is so courageous and confident. I love that she's so independent and strong and her hair is just goals.

05. Who do you look like the most?
I have been told that I look very much like Megara from Hercules as well as Vidia from the Tinker Bell films! What do you think?


06. If you could choose a Disney character to be your friend, who would it be?
I don't know if this is cliché but I would love Mickey Mouse to be my friend, I mean he's just too adorable. To be honest, I would just like to be best buds with Mickey, Donald and Goofy! I would also love to be friends with Minnie and Daisy, they would be the best of friends I'm sure. Max would also be so fun to be friends with, he just seems like so much fun.


07. A Disney scene that makes you cry every time?
Definitely Inside Out, that film wrecks me. I couldn't stop uncontrollably crying when I watched it and I still get tearful when I re-watch it. I also always cry or get teary during the film Stitch Has a Glitch. If you know what I'm on about that film really tugs on your heart strings.

08. Which Disney film have you seen the most?
Overall, I honestly have no idea but I have watch Lilo and Stitch a LOT. I have watched all the films including all of the TV episodes - can you tell Lilo and Stitch is my ultimate favourite film!?

09. What's your favourite Disney song?
Another really difficult question, I love so many Disney songs! Here are just a few that I will almost definitely belt if you put them on...
How Far I'll Go - Moana
You're Welcome - Moana
   (basically all the Moana songs)
Hawaiian Rollercoaster Ride - Lilo and Stitch
Make a Man Out of You - Mulan
On My Way - Brother Bear
I Got No Strings - Pinocchio
Let It Go - Frozen
When Can I See You Again - Wreck it Ralph (also the song from the street party parade at Disney)

10. What's your favourite memory made at a Disney park?
We made so many wonderful memories but I would definitely have to say that our encounter with Minnie and Mickey at Animal Kingdom. They were so funny and adorable, it was just perfect. I also loved meeting Chip and Dale - everyone says they're such laughs and they really, really are. Definitely two characters I would love to meet again.

Now here are a complication of photos taken over our holiday last year:


I hope you liked this post, I really enjoyed writing it. I'm loving my Disney themed posts at the moment, I just adore Disney and it really does hold a special place in my heart. If you haven't seen already, I posted a post on my Disney tsum tsum collection, so if you want to check that out, click here.

Have you ever visited Disney? Also how would you have answered these questions or some of my responses the same? I would love to know.

Fortnightly Reflections 7/06 - 21/06

Wednesday, 21 June 2017
#1 

Even though I'm home for summer and I have so much time on my hands, I have hit a wall with blog post inspiration. I have really struggled with thinking of some great posts as well as being inventive and organised with my photography. It's a right pain, but thankfully I read Lauren's post on how she become inspired to write posts and wow, it really did help give me that sprinkle of inspiration and motivation I needed.

I personally loved the section in her post where she looks at herself for motivation and by doing so she now writes monthly reflections on where she reflects on how the past month has gone for her. By reading this, it inspired me to incorporate a reflections post within my blog, so let me introduce you to my new lifestyle series that you'll find twice a month on my blog - Fortnightly Reflections -


Honestly, when looking back over the last 2 weeks, it's definitely a whirl wind. 2 weeks ago I has just finished my penultimate exam and now I'm sitting in my garden in the scorching heat, sipping on a iced caramel latte (obsessed with these at the moment). Since finishing my 5th exam, I have completed all my exams, packed up most of my stuff in my university haul, moved back home for summer and have caught up with some of my closest friends. Not only that, it was also my mums 50th birthday and we had a big meal not only celebrating her birthday but also celebrating my nan's 85th birthday, my brother's 18th birthday and my 21st birthday (can't believe I turn 21 next Sunday!!).

The meal celebrating all our birthday's was just lovely, it was so lovely to see so much of my family, a few of my closest friends and my boyfriend all so soon after finishing my first year at university, it was one big celebration we all thoroughly enjoyed. 

I'm not going to lie, I have also been feeling a little down since moving back home for summer. Don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled to be home living with mum, brother and sister again but it's hit me hard coming from the busy university life to coming home to a not-so busy lifestyle. I'm also struggling, as all my close friends I have made during my first year, all live so far away from me, making it very difficult to see each other. It also sucks that all my close friends from home are other away traveling or living in Nottingham finishing their placement year! Luckily I have a very supportive friends and family who are constantly texting me and chatting to me so I don't feel too on my own. 

Another plus that's also helping with the sudden shock of leaving university life for the summer, is that I'm searching for a job and I feel confident that I'll be working in the next week or so, I will definitely let you know if I find one, in my next Fortnightly Reflections. 


I'm hoping that once I have a job I will enjoy my summer just a little more as I know I'll be earning some money which I can start to save towards the adventures I want to experience next year. 

I hope you enjoyed this post and I hope you'll enjoy seeing more of these posts over the next few months. How have the last 2 weeks been for you? Have you been getting great weather? I'm definitely enjoying the sun!

Disney Collectible Haul

Friday, 16 June 2017
I adore Disney and that's why I want to incorporate more Disney into my posts as it's a company I feel very passionately about. I really want to share with you all, all the collectibles I invest my money in to and I just want to share my love of Disney with you all too! Just so you know I have now added an extra tab to my pages drop down menu named 'Disney', which is where you'll be able to find all my new Disney content and I have also added a tab called 'Tabitha's Tsum Tsum Collection' where you can find a complete list of all the Tsum Tsums I have on my shelf.

        

Today I thought I would share with you the latest Disney collectibles I have bought recently - a small treat to myself for completing my first year at university. 


I have eyed up the Disney Animators' Collection Dolls since the day the were released and yet I have never bought one before. I usually told myself that I didn't need them or they were too much money to just sit on a shelf, however I am so happy I decided to pick this beauty up last week. Everything about her is gorgeous and I just love all the little small details, such as the scrump teddy, the classic satchel she carries throughout the first film and her tiny little sliders (I didn't get a photo but I promise they're cute). 

I picked up Lilo as the film Lilo & Stitch is by far one of my favourites and I have so many fond memories when I think of the film and the characters. I also got her at a cheaper price as the Disney store has currently got a sale on these dolls (except the Moana one, which pains me because she's the next little one I desperately want!). 

Lilo is currently sitting at the top of my bookcase and I love it, I just can't wait to have baby Moana standing next to her - then my bookcase will look perfect! 


As you can probably tell by my new 'Tabitha's Tsum Tsum Collection' tab, I'm a massive fan of Disney's Tsum Tsums! My boyfriend got me into collecting them, as when I used to visit a Disney store, I always wanted to buy something (but everything is quite expensive - especially when you kept eyeing up the mugs!) and so when these little plushes were released, Matt said why not collect them, considering they're only £3 each! This past week I have picked up 5, I normally wouldn't pick up 5 in a week usually, however 2 of which I ordered online and the other 3 were little treats to myself for again, getting through my first year at university! 


I ordered Baymax and Hiro online from a girl on twitter and I love them. They're Japanese imports so slightly different to the UK ones but not majorly. I'm honestly so happy to have Baymax as I'm obsessed with Big Hero 6. He is also adorable in his little superhero uniform. I couldn't buy Baymax without buying Hiro and they do look perfect together. Very happy with this purchase. 


From this months new released collection (Tangled, The Series), Pascal definitely stuck out more than the rest of them. I just love that he has his tongue stuck out - too cute. 


I just had to pick Leia up when I noticed that the Disney Store had released her again. She flew off the shelves the last time she was released so I just needed to get my hands on her as she's definitely my favourite character from the original films. Matt picked out the Ewok for me and I'm glad he did as again (like the rest) he is just adorable! 

That's all of the Disney collectibles I have collected recently and I love all of them. No doubt I'll buy some more soon. Let me know what you thought of this post, I definitely can't wait to update you all on all the cute Disney things I'm buying.
