5 Must-Do's For My Halloween Disneyland Paris Trip

Wednesday, 31 August 2016

A week ago I finally booked my next trip to Disneyland Paris, I wasn't sure if I'd be visiting this year but I was determined to make it happen. My dream was to visit during the Halloween season again and as October got closer and closer, it didn't look like a trip was going to happen. However, I manged to find an amazing deal and I have booked to go with my twin brother, friend and auntie from the 9th - 12th October and I am ridiculously excited. I went during the Halloween season when I was 8 years old and fell in love with it, the whole park looks incredible. 

My Dissertation | Aladdin

Sunday, 28 August 2016

Out of the five Princesses I wrote about for this chapter, I probably wrote my section on Jasmine the quickest. I knew straight away what scenes I was going to analyse and once I had started writing I found it incredibly easy to discuss her character. I love Jasmine as a Princess, she truly stands up for what she believes in and she has my favorite animal as a pet. I have titled this Aladdin and not Jasmine because I wanted to make sure I referred to the film and not just the Princess, even though I will only be talking about Jasmine.

The 25 Questions Tag

Wednesday, 24 August 2016

I wasn't actually tagged to do this tag but I really enjoyed reading everyone's answers, so I thought I'd do it regardless. Hopefully you'll be able to get to know me a bit more by reading my answers! I'm not too sure whether or not they'll be interesting...


My Dissertation | Beauty and the Beast

Sunday, 21 August 2016

I decided to write about the five Princesses that are in my chapter on "The Princesses of the Disney Renaissance" in the order they were released. It made it a lot easier for me when I was doing my research, as the books I found also wrote about them in chronological order. I really enjoyed writing about Belle, I think she is such a unique princess.

How to Make Your Own Disney Bunting

Wednesday, 17 August 2016

As I was walking home from work last week I noticed that The Works were selling Disney books for £1. I was initially going to buy them to add to my growing collection of Disney items but then I remembered I have some blank wall space in my room and what better way to fill it than creating my own Disney bunting? I had helped my friend make some bunting last year, so I remembered how to make it without it looking like a toddler had done it. As I am not the most artistic person there was definitely a chance that could happen. It is extremely easy to make and does not take too long, I think it would make a perfect handmade gift for any Disney fan. I am also going to be giving one away over on my @Disney_Blogger account once we reach 300 followers, so make sure you are following so you don't miss out!


Things you will need:
Disney books of your choice (make sure the images are big enough to fill the bunting template)
Ribbon
Scissors
Glue
Card
Bunting template

My Dissertation | The Little Mermaid

Sunday, 14 August 2016

As The Little Mermaid is my favourite film and Ariel's my favourite princess, I found it the easiest to write about her. For the next five princesses I wrote about them all in one chapter called "The Princesses of the Disney Renaissance" and each of them has their own section, which is about 900 words.

How to Create Your Own Tangled Inspired Lanterns

Wednesday, 10 August 2016

I remember watching Tangled for the first time and falling in love with the lanterns, the lantern scene is definitely one of the most beautiful pieces of animation I have ever seen. Ever since I have thought about gathering loads of people and letting off our own lanterns but that is still yet to happen. Therefore, creating my own lantern that I could use at home seemed like the best idea. These are incredibly easy to make and add a little Disney magic to your home! These definitely didn't turn out exactly how I had hoped but I'm still pretty pleased with them regardless!


Things you will need:
An empty candle jar
Matte frosted glass spray
Full sheet A4 label paper
Yellow paint (optional)

My Dissertation | Snow White Chapter

Sunday, 7 August 2016

I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy writing my dissertation, at the time it was an awful experience but looking back on it I somewhat enjoyed writing it. I also put a lot of pressure on myself do well due to picking Disney as my topic. I disliked that a lot of my time at home was spent curled over my laptop, books and journals but all of the hard work I put into it paid off and I have honestly never been so proud of myself. I came to the realisation that writing about Disney is something that I thoroughly enjoy doing. Taking my time to analyse clips from the films I chose to write about and dive deeper into the meaning behind certain aspects of the films was extremely interesting and gratifying. Due to doing a film degree I had too textually analyse the clips I chose, therefore discussing the music and shots used was important. I also includes a chapter on what theories were relevant to my topic, but I won't be uploading that chapter on my blog.
I wrote a chapter on Snow White in order to compare the representation of gender in an earlier Disney film to those released during the Disney Renaissance, I wrote about The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Pocahontas and Mulan. I'll be uploading each princesses section in separate blog posts, in order to spread them out.
Overall, I received 75% for my dissertation, which is a first and I couldn't be happier.

How has the representation of the female gender in the Disney Princess movies progressed during the Disney Renaissance in relation to Snow White?

My Disney Wishlist | Part Two

Wednesday, 3 August 2016

After writing my first Disney wishlist I actually acquired a couple of the items on it, so I thought it was time for me to put together my second wishlist. My twin brother bought me the Rapunzel Jim Shore figure for my birthday and I managed to buy the Toulouse and Berlioz tsum tsums from a group on Facebook. As I wrote my first post almost 5 months ago, Disney have been churning out new merchandise, I do not doubt that I will start making a new wishlist post every month, or every other month due to waiting to purchase most of Disney's merchandise.
