The Disneyland Paris Tag

image1 (3)As you might know by now (if you don’t where have you been?!) I am a huge lover of anything and everything Disney, so when I saw this tag I just HAD to do it!
I also thought I’d add in a few pictures from my trips over the years.
This tag was originally created by the wonderful Ellie Steadman who’s videos I cannot get enough of!

1. When was your first trip and how many times have you been?

My first trip to Disneyland Paris was when I was around 18 months I believe and I have been every year apart from 3 years since that trip, I am now 18 and often went more than once a year, so I couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve been!

This is from when my niece and I were about 3, we visited for Christmas.

2. What Disney hotels have you stayed in? One you haven’t stayed in that you’d liked too?

I’ve stayed in the Disneyland Hotel every time I’ve been apart from four times, and it is of course my favourite! The other hotels I’ve stayed in are The Magic Circus Hotel, The Explorers Hotel and The Dream Castle Hotel. A hotel I would like to stay in would be the Newport Bay Club, as it looks so picturesque and grande.

3. What’s your favourite restaurant?

I think I’d have to say my favourite is the Plaza Gardens which is located in the Disneyland Park on Main Street U.S.A, because they have the most amazing buffet! Although, I did have Annette’s Diner for the first time this year when I visited, and that is good too!

4. A restaurant you’d like to eat in that you haven’t yet?

A restaurant I’d like to eat at which I haven’t yet would be Bistrot Chez Remy in the Walt Disney Studios, as the food looks so yummy!

5. What’s your favourite quick service/fast food?

My favourite fast food is without a doubt Restaurant en Coulisse, which is located in the Walt Disney Studios, which my boyfriend and I may have had everyday for lunch when we visited in April… It is basically expensive McDonald’s but there is just something about it which makes it soooo yummy.

6. What’s your favourite shop?

I can’t say I have one favourite shop, I definitely have a few. My first would be the Boardwalk Candy Palace which is on Main Street U.S.A in the Disneyland Park, simply because they do the most AMAZING candy floss, it is literally twice the size of my head, and getting that is one of the highlights of my trips to Disneyland Paris. As well as the fact I have a huge sweet tooth, so anything of the sweet kind just calls my name! Of course another favourite is World Of Disney in the Disney Village because they do so much Disney merchandise, they have everything you’re looking for! Lastly, the Walt Disney Studios Store, because there are often some hidden gems in there that you don’t actually find in the World of Disney.

7. What’s your favourite season or event?

I have visited Disneyland Paris for every season and event! It’s definitely a tie between Swing into Spring and of course Christmas! Swing into Spring is just lovely because of the colourful decorations and the colourful outfits the characters wear, as well as the fact my birthday is in during the Swing into Spring season ha ha. Then Christmas is of course Christmas! Who wouldn’t love Christmas at Disneyland Paris?! Seeing the park all decorated for Christmas really does make me so happy and I wish I could be there every year for the Christmas season.

8. Disneyland Park or Walt Disney Studios?

Difficult! I love them both equally for different reasons! Disneyland Park of course because of the nostalgia and happiness it brings me being in there. However, I definitely prefer the big rides in the Walt Disney Studios.

9. What’s your favourite ride in each park?

In the Walt Disney Studios, it’s a tie between Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster will always have a special place in my heart because it was one of the first roller coasters I went on when I was younger, but The Tower of Terror I just love! I love the feeling of the drop! Then in the Disneyland Park, I think I would have to say Big Thunder Mountain. I used to drag my dad on with me over and over and over again when I was younger, and it still excites me when I go on it! Although of course, I love a bit of Space Mountain, as that was the first ever roller coaster I went on.

10. What’s your favourite land in the Disneyland Park?

I know it technically isn’t a land in the Disneyland Park, but my favourite place would have to be Main Street U.S.A, I do just really love it there, popping in the shops and staring at the castle. However, if I have to choose a land it would definitely be Fantasyland… I always wished I lived there and it’s full of the princesses!

11. What’s your favourite character meet?

As I have been going to Disneyland Paris since I was 18 months old, I can’t remember every encounter I’ve had with characters, so I can’t really decide which is my favourite. Although, I know I used to adore Goofy! As well as Mickey, Minnie and Pluto. Also, I’m not sure why but I always too a disliking to Donald Duck.. sorry Donald, we’re friends now!

12. What’s your best character meet and greet experience?

Again, like I said above I can’t remember every meet and greet experience I’ve had over the years. However, when I went a few years ago, I think it was for my 15th birthday, my niece and I (she’s 11 days older than me, so we were celebrating her birthday too) had such a cute meet and greet with Tigger, he was bouncing all over the place, and was just having so much fun with us.578729_3350445196411_893036690_n

536853_3350457356715_1983267825_nimage113. What’s your happiest or best Disneyland Paris memory?

I cannot say I have a happiest or best memory at Disneyland Paris because every time has been special and magical in it’s own way, I couldn’t possibly pick just one!
However, I did really really enjoy my trip this year with my boyfriend for my 18th birthday. That was definitely a very special trip and one that I will keep with me and remember forever.
It was slightly weird as it was the first time I’d visited without my mum and dad being with me, but it made me so happy sharing my 18th Birthday with my boyfriend in the most magical place in the world!11390258_10205505631056638_2973866041363592376_n

Autumn Wish List

Hello! I’m back!
After a long break, for no other reason than I have been busy and started to lack motivation, I’m here with a new post.
I can’t promise that posts will be regular as I currently have a broken MacBook which makes writing, editing and uploading posts quite difficult, which is another reason I haven’t been able to post.
I will however try my very best and if you want to stay updated with what I’m doing day to day, give my Twitter and Instagram a follow as I always post on there!

Anyway, without further ado, here is my Autumn Wishlist!

image1 (3)image1 (2)

You may notice a theme in here… I may have an obsession with almost all of River Islands clothes, in fact I had to try and limit myself as to how many clothes from River Island I stuck in here… six out of the eight items isn’t bad.. right?!

RI Beige wrap shirtRI Grey wrap shirt

Recently I’ve been drawn to beige and tan colours so I instantly wanted this beige wrap front shirt when I saw it on the River Island website. The colour is the perfect colour to pair with either blue or black jeans and a pair of tan boots for the Autumn season. I already have this shirt in white and I love it! The material is so comfortable and falls so nicely that it looks like you’ve got a really put together chic outfit. I then saw it in this dark grey colour which of course is going to be great for the Autumn/Winter where I tend to wear darker colours. I plan to get both of these eventually, because who doesn’t need the same shirt in three different colours? I do!

RI Tan Boots

What screams Autumn more than a pair of tan ankle boots? As soon as September came I was on the hunt for the perfect pair of tan ankle boots. I stumbled across this pair on ASOS by River Island. I like that they’re not just plain as they have a bit of character on them with the buckles at the side. Tan ankle boots will look great with all sorts of outfits, especially skinny jeans which is what I wear almost everyday!

Topshop jeans

The next thing I really want is this pair of jeans from Topshop.. well sort of! I went shopping in Cambridge last week and tried on the most perfect pair of Topshop Joni jeans – my favourite kind, narrowly beating the Leighs – which were the same as these with the rips in the knees, however they were very slightly different in colour. For some reason I decided not to buy them, but took the product number so if I wanted to I could order them online, then when I looked online they weren’t there! I know, I’m kicking myself for not buying them! Hopefully, I’ll be able to pick them up in another store ASAP, however if not, this colour is extremely similar, so I’ll get these instead. I’m in desperate need of new jeans as mine all seem to be too short for me now!

RI Pink Cross over top

The next thing I spotted is this pink wrap front top from.. you guessed it.. River Island. Okay, I’ll admit it.. yes I already have this top in a different colour too.. I have it in grey! But I love it so much! It is a thin knitwear material, not quite as thick as a jumper but thicker than your everyday t-shirt. The reason I love it is because it is another one of those tops that you can easily throw on and still look put together. As you can see it crosses over at the front which means you can wear it without anything underneath, however as it is not actually pinned together there, it can sometimes fall away, so I often wear mine with a vest. I really want to get this colour as it is such a cute light pink which again, I think would go with the jeans I often wear.

RI Brown Asymetric top

Another top I want from River Island is this brown asymmetric one. I’ve seen this in River Island for a while but have never got round to buying it, however I think it would be great for the coming Autumn months! I love the fact that it is asymmetric and that one sleeve is longer than the other. Like I said, I’ve been drawn to beige’s and tans recently.

Office over the knee boots

Okay so.. these boots from Office are to die for! All last year I was looking for the perfect knee high/over the knee boots but I just never found a pair that I was willing to pay out for as I just never really fell in love with a pair. However, I tried these on in Office recently and I love them! They’re over the knee so obviously come quite high up, I didn’t think I would like them when I saw they were over the knee but I really did! They’re made from suede so they fit perfectly. Hopefully I will treat myself to them soon.

RI ScarfThe last thing on my wishlist is of course from River Island and it is this scarf. I’m not really a scarf kind of girl, unless I find a scarf I really love, which I had one last year! I really love the pattern and colours of this scarf, so hopefully it is made from a nice material! Which, if it is I will definitely purchase it for when it really does start to get chilly!

That is it for my Autumn Wishlist!
Once again, I am very sorry that I have been MIA recently, I don’t seem to be good at managing my time, however I am desperately working on that. I have a few ideas for future blog posts, which I will try and post as soon as possible. It is however a little hard with the fact my MacBook is broken.

I hope you enjoyed this, let me know what you’re wishing for this Autumn!
