Disney | Disneyland Paris Haul

Hi blog friends!!

As some of you may know I have just got back from Disneyland Paris for my 21st birthday. It was the most amazing trip so expect some DLP posts very soon. 
Today I thought I would show you what I bought in the parks and in the Disney Village. 
The merch in Disney is all so amazing and if I had the money (and room in my suitcase) I would have bought absolutely everything! 

*Disclaimer I am not trying to show off or anything, I was lucky enough to be given some birthday euros so was able to afford these things*

Since I have an ever growing Tsum Tsum collection I couldn't resist buying a few there was a pretty average selection to be honest which I was surprised by, so I only got 3 in the end. 
The first one is Figaro from Pinocchio as he is one of my favourite characters, then Jaq from Cinderella which is a Tsum I haven't been able to find in England and I think he might be a DLP exclusive so couldn't let the opportunity pass and the last Tsum I purchased was Duffy Bear, if you read my latest Disney Wishlist you'll know I have been looking for this Tsum for SO long so obviously I was going to pick him up! These all cost €5.99.

Since you can't go to Disney and not meet characters I got an autograph book and pen for €10 I think in our hotel shop. We actually only met Mickey & Minnie, which I am definitely not complaining about as it was the first time I have ever met Mickey (on my birthday so it was very special for me). 
We decided to purchase a few of the professional photos from the meet & greets with the Photo Pass system. The photos are absolutely beautiful and really capture just how happy I was to meet them! I would definitely recommend the Photo Pass!

Next I got a few Princess items (and Thor). 
Firstly is one of the Princesses shoe representations (which are actually Christmas decorations), I couldn't decide between Snow & Rapunzel but settled for Rapunzel as I just preferred the heel on the Punzie shoe (it is her hair when it has been braided and has flowers in, it's so cute!). I didn't get the Belle shoe as I thought it was just really boring compared to the other shoes! But instead I picked up a Belle keyring which is SO adorable, they had most of the Princesses but obviously I was going to get Belle, I also picked up Thor as he is my favourite Avenger.
Finally I purchased one of the absolutely beautiful canvas drawings of Belle. I think the way she is drawn is stunning and I can't wait to hang it up and show her off!

Next are a few Minnie/Mickey items and pins.
I couldn't stop looking at this Minnie plate and every shop we went in to I would pick it up and be like 'but do I need this' and every time my head said yes, so in the end I thought who cares and got it haha! I want to use this for blog photos as it is just so cute. 
Next I got some Mickey head cookie cutters. I have wanted some of these for ages now and couldn't find any cheap ones or ones that actually looked like Mickeys head, so when Bob found these I was so happy. They come in 3 sizes as well which is perfect.
Next are my favourite purchases without a doubt from the trip. 
I have always wanted to collect the Disney pins but never really knew what it was about, so after finding out a bit more about it I knew I wanted to get some this trip. 
I got the lanyard in the Tower of Terror shop for €9.99 and along with this I picked up the Belle, Aurora, Marie and Main Street DLP pins. I was annoyed that they didn't have the Tower of Terror ride pin as that is my favourite ride at Disney, but luckily we went into another shop and they had the ToT pin as well as the castle pin. 
All the pins that I got cost either €6.99 or €7.99 but some of them are a lot more it just depends on how detailed the pin is. 
When I go back to DLP in November hopefully I can do a few swaps with cast members.

I finally got a Duffy Bear!!!!! After a lot of umming and ahhhing I decided I would get a Duffy because he is the official bear of Disney and I just had to have him. He is the softest plush I have ever touched. I didn't really want him to be naked so bought him the Donald Duck costume. I think when I go back in November I am going to get him the Pinocchio costume!

I got some sweets for my family and friends. The lollies are for my housemates and then I got my family these Maoam type sweets which we used to have as kids so it was very nostalgic and plus they are so tasty!

The last item I got was actually bought for me by my wonderful boyfriend. These are the Mickey head earrings with my birthstone in them. They were on the pricier side so I was VERY grateful he got these for me. I think they are so beautiful and are small and subtle enough to not scream Disney so I can wear them everyday!!

I also picked up 2 perfumes in Duty Free on the way out, My Burberry by Burberry and Ghost Girl by Ghost.

I am honestly so thankful for the generosity of my family and my boyfriend for making it possible to purchase these items. 
When I go back in November there will most probably be another DLP haul! 
I hope you enjoyed seeing a few of the items Disney has to offer!

What was your favourite item?! What would you get at DLP?!

Lots of love

Beauty | My Go To Face Masks

Hi blog friends!! 

When it comes to a pamper night, everyone has their go to face masks because as we all know, no pamper session is complete without one!

I have 4 go to face masks, all for different things and they never fail me!

Firstly is The Body Shop's Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask. This is obviously a night time mask that replenishes and smooths the skin overnight leaving you with supple, bright, bouncy skin in the morning. I love this mask as it is cooling and really does what it says on the tin/jar. I always wake up with my skin feeling refreshed and very smooth. One tip for this mask is to put it on at least an hour before going to bed as it is quite sticky and needs time to settle before you hit the pillow.

Second is Liz Earle Deep Cleansing Mask. This is a clay mask made with green clay, Manuka honey, propolis and rose scented geranium and it smells so fresh and invigorating. This is the mask I turn to when my skin is needing a deep clean and when I need to get rid of any blocked pores, it also balances out oily skin so if you suffer from really oily skin like me I would definitely recommend this product. My skins feels so smooth and purified after using this mask.

Third is another Liz Earle Mask and this is the Intensive Nourishing Treatment Mask. The name is pretty self explanatory. This is the mask I turn to when my skin really needs hydration and quick! This mask has a beautiful scent of apricot kernel, borage, rose scented geranium oils and comfrey (I have no idea what that is either!) This mask is perfect for those of you with dry/dehydrated skin as it is so nourishing and packed with rehydrating ingredients that are sure to have your skin back in tip top shape in no time!

Finally the last mask I always turn to is the Superdrug Hydrating Vitamin E Moisture Mask. I have spoken about this mask before in a monthly favourites post (which you can read here) so I won't go into too much detail, but this mask has been a saviour for so long and I think I'm on my 3rd tube of it. It has a beautiful vitamin e scent and leaves my skin soft and very supple. I use this around 2 times a week, especially in the winter months as my skin gets terribly dry and this mask eradicates any dry patches all in 10 minutes which is fabulous for those of you with a busy lifestyle!

I have a lot more than just 4 favourite face masks so I will probably do another post on my other favourites soon!
What are your favourite face masks?!

Lots of love

Music | My Favourite Movie Soundtracks

Hi blog friends!! 

Being a film student it will come as no surprise that I would rather listen to a film soundtrack than chart music, I just find scores to be so moving and can stir so many more emotions than a song about asking people what they mean (Justin Bieber)! 

As I write this post I am actually listening to a playlist on Spotify called 'Movie Scores Study' there are some absolutely cracking pieces of music on this playlist and also doing an essay is 100 times easier when listening to fantastic scores. 
I just can't believe how beautiful some of these songs are, a personal fave is the theme to Jurassic Park but come on how can you not absolutely LOVE that piece of genius!
I think most people forget about soundtracks as I'm sure many people would rather listen to music with lyrics in, but sometimes powerful movie music is all you need. 
I think there is nothing better than getting a cup of tea and sitting down to relax with a few movie tunes. Sometimes music with no words says a lot more than music with lyrics. 
GUYS JURASSIC PARK JUST CAME ON AND I THINK I MIGHT CRY!!!! I'm just gonna have to take a minute.

My love of film scores started when I was in year 10 (about 14 or 15) when I started to study film properly for my GCSE's and I distinctly remember re-watching Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and thinking that the music was simply stunning and made the film come to life!
I have always been one for wanting to live inside a film and maybe that is why I am so attached to scores, as when I listen to them I can't help but become immersed by them and pretend I'm living inside the film (this definitely happens with the HP soundtracks haha)!

The 4 scores I turn to on a regular basis are:

The Grand Budapest Hotel Score by Alexandre Desplat

The Jurassic Park Score by John Williams

Any Harry Potter Score by Nicholas Hooper

Go have a listen to them, they're all fantastic!
What are your favourite movie soundtracks?!

Lots of love

Lifestyle | Autumn Inspiration

Hi Blog Friends!! 

As Summer is very much officially over this can only mean one thing...AUTUMN!!

Autumn is my favourite season for so many reasons, I mean most importantly it's my birthday season!!

Autumn means that winter is coming (Jon Snoooow) and we all know that winter means Christmas and Christmas means festive everything!!! 
But back to autumn, it is possibly the most cosy time of year as the fashion changes to big knitwear jumpers, scarves, boots, tights, Costa and Starbucks bring out their autumn/winter drinks (praise da lord for white chocolate hot chocolate), crunchy leaves, long walks in the crisp air, orange and red hues everywhere, Halloween, Bonfire Night, berry lipstick. 
I just got so excited writing all that, I just love autumn so much haha!
Autumn also brings around a new school/uni year for most people which means you get the chance to start fresh and work as hard as you can. Just work your socks off and reap the rewards, you won't regret it.

Pinterest is the place to be when it comes to Autumn inspiration and I have been trawling the autumn search for days now being inspired by peoples outfits, recipes and decor. 
I have put together an Autumn pin board and thought I would share some of my favourite pins with you. 
*all pictures are from Pinterest, I do not own them!*

What's your favourite thing about autumn?!

Lots of love

Disney | Custom Made Disney Ears

Hi blog friends!!

A few weeks ago I purchased something so exciting I can't even describe! 
I had known about this Esty shop for a while and had always wanted to put an order in for some beautiful hand made custom Disney ears, and I finally did due to my boyfriends incredible generosity!

Queen Ursula UK is an Etsy shop based in England run by the fabulous Alyssa who specialises in creating beautiful custom Disney ears to her customers own specification. 
I purchased the deluxe ears (£30) which allowed me to have up to 4 different characters on my ears so obviously I chose Belle and the Beast, I mean how could I not! I also knew I wanted Marie as she is my favourite animal Disney character, but I spent years trying to decide my final character, I even had a list of characters I wanted but I finally decided on my second favourite princess, Aurora.

Alyssa creates all these amazing ears from scratch, painting the bases and making them all sparkly one tiny crystal at a time which I think is absolutely incredible! 
Her service was fantastic as well, she kept in contact with me and sent me pictures to make sure everything was as I had imagined. 
I got my ears after, I think it was 4 weeks. Although due to her volume of orders the shop is now closed for a short while (keep checking her Etsy & Instagram for updates). 
Over all I am SO impressed with these ears and the quality of them! I can't wait to wear them around Disneyland Paris next weekend!

Who would you get put on your ears?!

Lots of love

Beauty | MAC Haul

Hi blog friends!!

I have been super busy with my challenge week at uni this week so haven't had time to even plan any posts, so today I thought I would tidy my room and then blog to my hearts content, which means I have planned like 2 posts haha!

Over the past few weeks I have been absolutely LOVING MAC! Like it is without a doubt my new obsession and whilst I love that my bank account certainly doesn't but I don't care! I have bought a fair few things from them recently and thought I would share with you guys what I purchased and my thoughts on them.

Firstly I bought 2 lipsticks and a lip pencil from MAC in Plymouth's House of Fraser. I tweeted about this because the woman who served me was absolutely amazing and so helpful but I didn't catch her name which annoyed me! I only went in to get Media but because she was so lovely I ended up getting 2 other items as well! So I got Media which is a satin finish lipstick in a deep reddish purple and looks absolutely amazing next to my fair skin. I love a really bold lip, especially in the Autumn/Winter months and plus I'd rather have a bold lip than bright and bold eye shadow.
To go with Media I got the Currant lip pencil which is pretty much a perfect match to the colour of Media, I'm so glad I got a liner though as dark colours tend to be very hard for me to get exactly right and if you make a mistake it's very noticeable!
The second lipstick I picked up was Brick-O-La. This is an amplified creme finish and my absolute favourite out of my whole lipstick collection! It is a mid berry toned red and looks so beautiful on the lips, I just love everything about this lipstick!!

Top to bottom:
Ruby Woo
Currant lip pencil

I was browsing the MAC website and chose 2 more lipsticks (I need them okay, well that's what I'm telling myself haha). The first was Chatterbox which I'm pretty sure a lot of people have but I have only just caught up with the band wagon! This lipstick is also an amplified creme finish and is a reddish pink. It is such a lovely colour and a lot brighter than I was expecting which I love!
The second and final lipstick I purchased was Ruby Woo. This is a gorgeous bright blue toned red with a retro matte finish. Im a big fan of the matte lip and also because this red is blue toned it goes perfectly with my skin tone! Overall I am infatuated by MAC lipsticks right now and I feel like nothing can beat them (well nothing in my price range haha). I would definitely recommend Brick-O-La and Chatterbox.

I also bought  my first ever MAC eye shadow when I was going through their website. I have heard a lot about this colour and I know that Gabby from Velvet Gh0st has this (she was also the reason I bought this haha). I bought the colour Woodwinked which is a warm gold toned eye shadow and I think I might be in love with it and I haven't even used it yet haha!
It is a beautiful gold colour, almost like a burnt gold with tons of shimmer in it!
This eye shadow is going to look amazing for Autumn/Winter eye looks paired with my Naked 3 palette and I can't wait to try it out!

What are your favourite MAC products?!

Lots of love

Life | Life Update

Hi blog friends!! 

I haven't done a chatty/life update post in a while and I though it was about time, plus I love doing posts like this, for some reason it feels like I'm having a big catch up over coffee with all of you haha!

Recently my life has been thrown back into London and I am so happy and excited for the next couple of months and what is in store! 
Since moving back to London I haven't done a great deal other than eat, blog, edit, repeat but today my uni course is starting unofficially with a challenge week and I am so excited about it (although I keep complaining but I really am excited haha) mainly to see all my friends again! 
On the other hand it does mean that the start of real lectures is fast approaching and the thought of all the work I am going to have to do this year kind of makes me want to cry, but I feel like I am ready for the challenge and I am going to try SO hard this year as it is my last and I am dying to leave uni with a 2.1!
I feel like in 2nd year I had a lot going on and my work really suffered as a result and it makes me upset to think I could have done so much better but you can't dwell on the past, you just have to look forward and put the effort in, nothing will stop me this year I'm going to be an essay writing machine! 

Leaving my home in Devon was hard for me though, I had been home for so long I got into a routine of doing nothing and buying Tsum Tsum's haha but like fo'real I was so lazy this summer and I'm angry at myself for that but oh well ey it gave me time to blog...every cloud! 
Like I was saying however, leaving was hard for many reasons the biggest obviously being that my boyfriend lives in Devon and now I won't see him till my birthday trip to Disneyland Paris. We talk every day but goodbyes are always hard and this was no exception! I also didn't want to leave my dad and brother, but this is all part of growing up I guess. 
Since being in London I have felt a bit wobbly to be honest, I'm just feeling all the emotions at the moment and it's making me a bit well, confused. I am beyond excited for this year and being back in London as I LOVE being here but I miss everyone at home and I'm also scared about what I'm going to do after uni but I'm happy that I'm here and I'm doing what I want.

I think my anxiety plays a part in all this confusion. 
I get so anxious whenever a new term at uni starts, mainly because I always seem to convince myself I will fail and that uni isn't for me and that I hate it. 
Like I said before my second year wasn't the best for me and I used to wake up everyday dreading going into uni and doing something I didn't want to do, all I wanted to do was hide in my room all day and cry and I really don't want this mindset to carry on into this year as I'm feeling really good about 3rd year. So I am going to make a conscience effort to stamp out that little voice in my head and tell it that I WILL do well and that I WILL get the grades I want instead of letting it take over everything like it did in 2nd year! Positivity is key (god this damn post is like cliche central). 
However I did find myself pulling out my eyelashes the other day and had to stop myself which I haven't done in a long time so I know I'm definitely stressed/anxious about something but I will not let my anxiety and trichotillomania get the best of me and I am now on high alert for pulling!

But overall I'm feeling confident and happy right now, I have this incredible blog, amazing friends, my wonderful and supportive family and an amazing boyfriend and I am very grateful for every single one of them even if I don't tell them enough! 
Plus I have so many things to look forward too in the up coming weeks, firstly freshers, then my early birthday celebrations with my housemates, Disneyland for my actual birthday with Bob and Fall Out Boy with Bob.
Overall I'm trying to be positive in my outlook right now and I think over time I will thank myself for that! Oh and before I leave you just thought I'd let you know that I'm super excited for the iPhone 6s to come out, hot dang I need that rose gold phone in my life haha!

What a random way to end that little life update haha I hope you enjoyed reading. I will leave you with one question, just a simple...

How are you guys doing?!

Lots of love

Beauty | Lush Haul

Hi blog friends!!

Now I'm a gal who loves a pamper and what is the best place for pamper products?! Lush. 
I kept looking through the website trying to decide all the different products I wanted, until I realised my list was about the size of my arm and had to stop myself haha!

I decided to go into Plymouth Lush and thought I'd treat myself to a few products that I really wanted! 
I will admit though I am not the biggest bath lover, I usually get in for about 10 minutes decide I hate them and get out. So in a bid to learn to love them I went a bit crazy on the bath bomb/ballistic front! So hopefully these products will convert me!

The first bath ballistic I got was Dragon's Egg (£3.35). 
I had asked on Twitter what everyone's favourite bath bombs from Lush were and which ones I should try and I had an overwhelming response of 'get Dragon's Egg'.
Dragon's Egg is a citrus based bath bomb with a hint of jasmine. It turns your bath a gold colour and the most exciting part is that is has popping candy inside for an extra little pop! It smells very citrusy which I love, as lemony citrus scents are one of my faves.
As you can see I have 2, I only bought one and the one in the blue packaging was a present from my friend Tate as she stayed in my house for a few weeks so that was really lush of her (see what I did there, also thank you Tate!)

The next 2 bath bombs I purchased were Honey Bee (£3.35) and Frozen (£3.35). 
Firstly Honey Bee, it smells absolutely divine! It smells exactly like Honey I Washed The Kids soap, which is one of my fave soaps ever. It is a honey scent with a hint of aloe and orange. This particular bath bomb is meant to be very moisturising and nourishing as it contains an ingredient called Rhassoul Mud which has natural cleansing properties and helps to soften and condition your skin, so I think I will be using this bath bomb when my skin gets dry in the cold weather! 
The last bath bomb I picked up was Frozen. This bath bomb was exclusive to the Oxford Street shop when it opened and I was so annoyed because I really wanted to try it, so when they brought it out in all Lush shops I knew I had to get it!
The strap line on the tag is 'Do you want to have a bath bomb? Do you want to splash and play?' which I think is SO cute but probably not to everyones taste haha! The bath bomb smells really floral and almost herby, with grapefruit and neroli as the main notes. It turns the water a deep blue colour which excites me and I can't wait to try this bath bomb out!

I also got the Milky Bath (£3.75) bubble bar, which smells like cocoa butter and patchouli with a tiny hint of orange. The bar is shaped like a milk bottle which honestly was the reason I bought it haha. It feels really moisturising to touch so I am excited to use this bubble bar.

Next I bought 2 face masks as I absolutely LOVE Lush face masks, they are full of natural ingredients with nothing harmful to hurt your skin. The first one I picked up was the Oatifix face mask (£6.50). Full of oats, bananas and vanilla, this mask gently exfoliates and nourishes the skin. It has an amazing cinnamon, almond, vanilla scent and feels amazing on the skin. After using it my skin feels so nourished and smooth. 
The second face mask I picked up was Catastrophe Cosmetic (£6.50). This mask is full of blueberries, chamomile, rose and almond oils and smells so fresh. I have used this mask before and loved it so that was why I repurchased it. It is very cooling and moisturising and leaves the skin feeling refreshed and supple!

Finally the last product I picked up & the most pricey was the Hair Custard (£12.95). Now I know that this doesn't sound that appealing, the thought of putting thick custard on your hair may sound ridiculous but obviously this isn't the case haha! Firstly it smells incredible, like a big tub of vanilla with a little hint of coconut and oh my god I can't stop opening the tub just to smell it. It is basically a custard consistency cream that you smooth onto the hair before blow drying it to stop static and make it feel nourished and shiny. 
Static hair is a thing of the past now!

Ooh I do love a Lush haul! I can't wait to try out all my products! I was also given the new Lush catalogue with my purchases and have already circled pretty much EVERYTHING haha!
What is your favourite Lush product?

Lots of love

Hair | The Incredible Invisibobble

Hi blog friends!! 

When it comes to hair I'm a fussy one, I hate putting my hair up in a bun or a ponytail (except now I have had mine all chopped off into lob so looks a bit silly haha) then taking it out and my hair has a massive kink in it and looks like I've just woken up! 
But over the summer a few of my friends kept talking about the Invisibobble, a traceless hair ring that is shaped like a spiral meaning the hair can't get trapped and therefore you can't get a kink!

I didn't really understand the whole concept and thought that it doesn't matter what kind of hair tie you have, surely it will kink your hair! Oh how wrong I was!

I was searching for some make up one night on and I clicked on the hair section as I was hoping to buy a scrunchie (90's gal at heart) and when I saw that Topshop sold the Invisibobble I thought I might as well try it and see what the fuss was about, although I wasn't happy with the price £4 for one hair ring, what a rip off! 
But when I received my Topshop package (also why the hell is Topshop delivery £4 that is daylight robbery if you ask me) I realised that you don't just get one hair ring you get 3, which made feel a bit better about the price haha!

The packaging was compact and simple in a tiny cube box, the first thing I noticed about the Invisibobble was how small it was, and I wasn't convinced that this tiny thing could stretch that far but surprisingly you can wrap it around even the thickest of hair!
So I thought I would give it a try, I put my hair up in the morning and left it there until I was about to go to bed. I was seriously so surprised with the results, my hair fell back down, no kink, no bedhead hair although it did have a bit of a waviness to it. 
I was pleasantly surprised at how well it worked!

My biggest gripe I with this product however is that, if you stretch the bobble too much it becomes all loose and doesn't go back to being all small and compact, it just stays loose and you have to mould it back into it's smaller shape which is pretty annoying, I was sort of expecting it to spring back to the size it was in the box, but never mind!

Overall I am so impressed with these hair ties. They are a bit pricey for what the are to be honest but I know that you can get cheaper ones in Primark, so if you think paying the £4 is a bit too much head there and check them out! 
This is definitely a step forward in hair tie technology haha! I don't think I will ever use anything else on my hair now, I just love how you can take your hair down after wearing it up all day and you can't even tell that it has been up in a bun or ponytail, it is virtually undetectable!

Have you tried the Invisibobble? How did you find it?

Lots of love

Lifestyle | 15 Random Questions Tag

Hi blog friends!!

At the moment I am super busy packing my whole life up and moving it back to London so I am sorry that I am doing another tag post so close to my last one (click here to see it) but 1) I am SO busy and this is nice and fun to do and 2) I love tag posts, maybe because I'm nosy but I find them so interesting finding out more things about someone, I feel like I'm getting to know them a bit better! 
This tag has been around for ages but I really like the questions so thought I would let you guys know a bit more about me! So here are the 15 random questions:

3) Do you have any weird phobias?
I am terrified of answering the phone if I can't see who is calling, actually even when I can see I still get petrified. Whenever the house phone used to ring I'd lock myself in the bathroom till it stopped haha. I used to be really scared of plug holes (like in the bath and sink) as well!

4) What song do you secretly love to blast & sing along to when you're alone?

6) What is one of your nervous habits?
When I'm nervous my nose starts to twitch, it's really annoying because it tickles haha

In my own bed I sleep in the middle, but I sleep on the right at my boyfriends

8) What was your first stuffed animal & it's name?

9) What drink do you always get at Costa?
Medium Peach Ice Lemonade, always!

10) What beauty rule do you preach but never actually practice?

Disney | Disney Wishlist #2

Hi blog friends!!

It's that time again!! Another Disney wishlist (here is the first one in case you missed it), which I admit is a long time over due! I have been gathering a very, VERY long list of all the Disney items I have been loving and most certainly needing, so to narrow it down to these 9 things is pretty impressive I would say!

Ever since buying my Belle plush I have wanted Aurora, her being my second favourite princess and all. Her dress looks so pretty and if it is anything like Belle's I know it will be! These canvas drawings of the princesses are so intricate and detailed, I love this one of Snow and I also like the Rapunzel one. Britto is a new edition to the Disney collectables range and they are AMAZING! So colourful and pretty, this one of Belle is perfect as it is mainly blue, my favourite colour! Since I'm about to go back to Uni, stationery is key right now and this Lady & the Tramp notebook is perfect as it is A5 size, there is also an adorable Bambi one. I cannot get over how cute this Marie top is, I have also had 'Everybody Wants To Be A Cat' stuck in my head the whole time I have been writing this post! For some reason I cannot find a link to a Duffy Bear Tsum Tsum anywhere but oh well, I have been so obsessed with Duffy recently and I don't know why, maybe it's because you can only really buy merch for him in WDW, so that makes him more appealing haha! Dumbo is one of my new found favourites, I adore little Dumbo and this Tsum Tsum style mug is just the definition of cute, the Dumbo Tsum is actually one of my favourites so I couldn't resist popping this guy in my wishlist! I have wanted this lip balm for ages and its been sold out for as long as I can remember so Truffle Shuffle please re-stock it, like now! Finally I stumbled across this t-shirt whilst on Easy and just fell in love, I love the fact its so plain but yet every time I see it I start singing the song haha I also really like the font!

That is just a handful of all the Disney items I have been loving and wanting (needing haha). 
What is your favourite item in the wishlist?!

Lots of love
