Japan 2015 | Universal Studios Osaka

Friday, 18 March 2016

I have been sat looking through my pictures of my trip to Japan for a few minutes and I came across the ones I took while I was at Universal Studios in Osaka. I thought I'd compile them all into a blog post and talk about my day there! I don't talk about my love for Harry Potter as much I do Disney but as you can probably guess from my blog name, I love Harry Potter and that was one of the reasons I wanted to visit Universal Studios while I was in Osaka. The Wizarding World looks exactly the same as the one in Florida and they sell the same merchandise but I could not pass up the opportunity to visit. I might start doing more posts on Harry Potter, as it has played a big part in my life for such a long time. Maybe there's a Harry Potter tag floating around somewhere? I didn't actually take that many pictures in The Wizarding World part, as I took SO many photos while I was in Florida and like I said, it looks exactly the same and it was pretty bleak day. However, I hope you enjoy the pictures I did happen to take!

My Disney Wishlist | Part One

Wednesday, 16 March 2016

I have seen quite a few Disney bloggers do posts all about their Disney wishlist, so I thought I'd put one together! Disney merchandise is my weakness but unfortunately I'm running out of space in my room for it and some of it I cannot get my hands on in the UK. It is official, Japan definitely get the best Disney merchandise and I regret not buying everything when I was there in July last year. Although, I did come home with a ton of Disney merchandise, I just couldn't resist but they have just started releasing a lot more products and everything is so, so adorable. This is just part one because there is definitely more stuff that belongs on this wishlist but I couldn't fit it in the picture! It also appears that my wishlist has a colour scheme, which was completely unintentional.

My Disney Confessions | Part One

Tuesday, 8 March 2016

I have a few Disney confessions that I have been thinking about and after seeing Sam and Amy do a blog post all about their own Disney confessions, I thought it would be fun to give it a go and put mine on my blog for everyone to read. This is just part one, so I will definitely be doing more of these posts as I really enjoyed writing these 7 confessions and I will more than likely come up with a new one to write about straight after I publish this post. If you have any Disney confessions then let me know in the comments!

1♥  I am a pretentious Disney fan.
A couple of years ago Sarah Snitch made a video all about being a "pretentious" Disney fan on her YouTube channel and as I was watching it I realised that I can relate to everything she is saying. Most Disney fans are probably the same way, if someone states a Disney fact and you know they are wrong then you have to correct them, you cannot let them go on without telling them that they are in fact wrong. I like to tell people Disney facts whether or not they want to hear them, I enjoy pouring my knowledge of Disney onto other people, especially my family and my boyfriend. I can't watch "guess the Disney song" videos on YouTube without getting angry, they usually play it so they can establish who the biggest Disney fan is but I just find myself shouting the songs at the screen and getting annoyed if they do not guess them straight away. I could go on and on about being a pretentious Disney fan but you should definitely watch Sarah's video on it here:

Japan 2015 | The Ghibli Museum, Mitaka

Friday, 4 March 2016

I am writing this short post 8 months after visiting Japan and it is making me miss it more than anything but I have been meaning to write about my visit to the Ghibli Museum for such a long time, that I thought it was time I finally did it. Being able to visit Japan was such an incredible experience and I really am grateful that I was able to travel to such an amazingly, unique country and I can't wait for the day I am able to go back to where I consider home for me (as well as Disney, of course.) The first Studio Ghibli film I watched was Spirited Away and I admit that I was not a fan of it at first but the more Studio Ghibli films I watched, the more I began to love it. I give my twin brother full credit, as I know that he will want it. I was ridiculously excited to visit the museum because my brother, aunt and uncle had been before and had told me all about it on numerous occasions. It is important to know that you have to buy your tickets online, you cannot turn up at the museum and expect to get in without having a ticket already. Unfortunately, you are not allowed to take pictures once you are inside the museum, so I do not have many pictures to show you but there are a few pictures situated on their official website which is linked at the bottom of this post. I agree with the policy of no pictures because it allows you take everything in and appreciate the museum a lot more without worrying about pictures, even though you still get the odd guests that will completely ignore this and take pictures regardless.

Baking | Vegan Peanut Butter & Banana Cookies

Wednesday, 2 March 2016

When baking I always tend to stick to the same recipes and typically only ever bake basic cookies and cupcakes, sometime last year I decided to give baking some vegan cookies a go and I personally think they turned out amazing. I am vegetarian but I'd love to start trying out a lot more vegan recipes, so I thought I'd make these cookies and share the recipe I used with you. Like my Mickey & Minnie Mouse cookies I did follow an already made recipe but with this one I am going to change it slightly. You can definitely really taste the peanut butter in this cookies, so if you are not a fan of it you can always add less or just take it out of the recipe altogether and if you do not want to make as many cookies just simply half the ingredients! These cookies are super quick and easy to make, they also taste amazing, if you are someone who doubts vegan cooking and baking then definitely give these a go and try them out for yourself!

120g mashed bananas
125g peanut butter
70g dark brown soft sugar
100g caster sugar
1 and a half teaspoons of vanilla extract
165g plain flour
1 table spoon of baking powder
