Disney Secret Santa Swap

So today I'm carrying on from my own Blogger Swap to a Secret Santa swap, which was set up by my amazing instagram friends @katedoesdisney, @disneyinparticular and @alexburgers
My gifts came from @taylorburgess13 and I love them so much that I had to share them with you! Now if you already followed me on instagram you will have probably seen the gifts but if not you in for a great treat :)

Firstly I will share the stunning card she sent me with a beautiful picture of the Disneyland Paris castle at Christmas taken by the amazing Laura Knighton. Laura is also known as @thatdisneylover on instagram, twitter. She also has a Youtube channel, which is awesome! Anyway, the picture is stunning. 

Next is an adorable postcard of my favourite place in the Disney universe, Neverland! This postcard is made by the wonderful Lizi, known on instagram as @disneyisalwaysagoodidea. Lizi makes postcards for all different Disney locations printed on a logo just like a tube station. I love this so much and hope to get more in the future so I can put some of my favourite locations up in my room!

This piece of art is also made by Lizi from @disneyisalwaysagoodidea and I LOVE IT! Rapunzel is my favourite princess and this is just stunning. Lizi takes pictures from Disney books & art and make little decorations. You can't see on the picture very well but it's covered in glitter too! You can buy these from here Etsy shop here! She is currently closed for Christmas but will be back up & running soon :)

Lastly are the most beautiful pair of ears I've ever seen. These are no ordinary ears though as they are handmade by Lola Hancock on instagram, known as @lubyandlola. I've been wanting a pair of Luby&Lola ears since I first followed them but never got the chance but here I am with my first pair! I LOVE THEM SO MUCH! As you can see they are Belle inspired with gold glitter & yellow bow with small rose detail. I can't wait to wear them to Disneyland Paris next year when I go for my 18th! I'm also sure I'll be buying more especially Tinkerbell, Rapunzel & Marie pairs, I feel a collection coming on...! You can buy Lola's ears on Etsy here! She is currently closed for Christmas but will be back up & running soon :)

I love my gifts so much and once again can't believe how nice & amazing people I only know online can be! Thankyou so much Taylor if you reading this :)

Disney Blogger/YouTube Christmas Gift Swap

This year I was asked by my friend Dan to help organise a blogger/youtube christmas gift swap! I jumped at the opportunity as I love gift swaps and christmas! Today is reveal day and everyone who particpated will be posting on youtube, instagram or on their blog in the next few days heading up to Christmas. 

I was super lucky and my presents were from my good friend Tracie, also known as @trixiebell_85 on instagram. You should totally check out her instagram as it's full of Disney magic! 

Now onto the presents! They came wrapped in amazing Frozen paper and I couldn't wait to see what was inside...

I'll start with the non-disney thing first, which I thought was super sweet as I didn't expect anything MLP but I LOVE it! It such a cute calendar and I can't wait to display it in my room. I love all the little pictures and it includes all the mane 6, which is so rare!

 Next up is this super cute princess keyring with Cinderella, Belle & my personal favourite Rapunzel! I can't wait to put this with my other disney keyrings in my room and display it with all my princess things. I also love the backing card with all the little princess scenes :)

 I love this awesome figural pen from The Disney Store. It's part of the new range called 'MXYZ', they do all different random stationary bits and I love this pen! I'm going to put it on my desk as she is such a cute figure anyway. I love the pink aswell, as pink is one of my favourite colours. 
A useful item with a touch of disney :)

 Last up are my favourite things, which are the Moana Tsum Tsums! I missed these on release day and was really sad but I'm so happy now as I have Moana & Pua!! Pua is the cutest thing and he was the one I wanted most so I'm so happy to have him in my collection. I also collect princess tsum tsums so Moana was needed and she is so detailed.

I LOVE MY PRESENTS! I was so taken back & overwhelmed when I open them as I couldn't believe a person that I don't actually know other than online, could be so friendly & generous. 
Thankyou so much Tracie if your reading this!! 

Can't wait to do this all again next Christmas!

My Disney Plush Collection

I was wondering what to blog about today and decided on sharing my plush collection with you! Over the years I've collected quite a few plushies and this isn't even all of my Disney ones as I have older ones from WDW that my Dad bought years ago. These are the plushies that I have in my room on my floor & on my shelves, so here we go..

Gaston | Belle | Beast | Peter Pan | Tinkerbell | Rapunzel | Anna | Elsa | Snow White

I'm going to start off with my shelf plushies. These are some of my favourites as they are mostly the soft dolls. They include some of my favourite characters from Gaston to Elsa! I think the detail of the clothes and faces on these dolls are lovely too, they are a great gift for any Disney fan! Beast is extra special to me as I bought him in Disneyland Paris this year. I also love my Frozen dolls as Anna was the first I ever got and I remember The Disney Store were sold out of Elsa for months and she came online one day and I rushed to get her!

Thumper | Stitch | Baymax

These are my random plushies as I like their characters but they aren't favourites of mine, though in plush form they are all adorable! I bought Stitch when I went to Disneyland Paris for the first time and fell in love, which was weird as I didn't have anything Stitch previously. Thumper was on a special offer when I bought him but I love him so much, he is so cute!! As soon as I saw Baymax in the Big Hero 6 trailer I knew I loved his design, so cute & simple. I knew the plush would sell out as soon as the movie came out so I bought him just before and I'm glad I did!

Ariel | Sofia the First | Tramp | Lady | Olaf

I love my Ariel and I got her for my birthday one year, the only annoying thing is that she can't sit on my shelf because of her tail! I LOVE her red long soft hair though. I also have a tiny Sofia the First as she is so small and I love her dress. I only recently got Lady & Tramp in the 'Buy 1 get one for a £1' sale, which was just too good to resist! They are two of my favourites now. Olaf was one of my first plushies and he actually sings! I remember getting him when I went to Oxford Street Disney Store for my birthday :)

Pua | Medium Donald Tsum Tsum

Pua is just THE CUTEST THING EVER!!! I saw Pua for the first time and knew I needed him! Pua is the softest little pig in the world and I love him so much!!! I also love my Donald Medium Tsum Tsum. Donald is one of my favourite classic characters so I obviously need him in every form :)

Marie | Pluto Pillow Pet | Donald Duck

Another favourite character of mine is Marie, she is just so girly and classy. I love how soft her plush is and the detail on her bows. The Pluto Pillow Pet is actually from Disneyland Paris a few years ago and I haven't seen them anywhere else in the UK, which is kind of sad as I'm sure they would sell if they put them in the Disney Store. I use my pillow pet every night and it so comfy. As I said before, I need Donald in every form so here is classic Donald. He was another recent purchase and I LOVE his little outfit!!

Rapunzel Toddler | Tinkerbell Toddler | Elsa Toddler | Anna Toddler

These are the original toddler/animator dolls that they started making a few years ago. Recently they changed them to a new design but I much prefer these as I find them cuter. Sadly I only have four and would have loved more but I'm happy with the four I have. I love how detailed but small these are too.

And that's my Disney Plush Collection! Not as big as some people's but plush aren't my main collection so I'm happy with what I have. I hope to get more in the future..well as many as my floor can handle!

November Favourites

Can you even believe it's December already, it's crazy! But since it's December that means it's time for my November Favourites, which are of course all Disney themed. I have quite a few this month so let's get started..

First up is the Moana Classic Doll from The Disney Store. Moana came out last Friday here in the UK, but I haven't seen it yet so that's a must watch! I did buy the classic doll though in the black Friday sale as I knew I wanted her for my collection and didn't want her to sell out like Elsa & Anna did back when Frozen came out. She is so chunky and beautiful, I love her so much as she is so different to the general princesses. 

I've recently decided to start collecting the Disney Shoe Ornaments and knew I needed Rapunzel. I got Tinkerbell last year, Minnie when I went to Disneyland Paris earlier this year and I've ordered quiet a few for Christmas! Rapunzel was going to be harder though as they didn't sell it in Disneyland Paris or online at the Disney Store and the only place to find it was ebay for crazy prices!! Luckily I found the shoe on facebook on a Disney selling page for a great price and had to get it. The shoe is stunning with pink & purple glitter and her hair braided up the heel with flowers. 

Over the past month I've been doing alot of trading and managed to acquire one of my grails along the way, I'm talking about this amazing Frozen Jumbo! It's actually massive and I love the stain glass detail in the background. It also has all the main characters on it, which is hard to find as Hans is often excluded from merchandise. Elsa and Anna also have a pin-on-pin 3D effect, which is super cool! I still can't believe I now own this pin!!

I actually got this Belle in a raffle and I love her so much! I have been wanting her for ages especially with the amazing detail on her dress of her castle. I always love Jim Shore's take on the Disney characters with his patterns and I think Belle looks stunning.

I've been collecting the Disney Christmas decorations this year and this has to be one of my favourites. Peter Pan is my favourite Disney movie (if you don't know already!) so this was a must have for me. I love the Big Ben scene in the movie and kind of wished this ornament showed the same time as the movie but you can't have everything perfect! It includes Peter Pan & all three children (Michael is on the back) and it covered in gold glitter.

And of course I couldn't do my November Favourites without including this amazing Princess figure set from The Disney Store. I did a full review on this set last week, which you can find here. I love this set so much as it includes so many princesses and sidekicks that are often forgotten. The are covered in pretty glitter and look great in or out of the box! 

That's all my favourites for November! 
What's your favourite?

Disney Princess Mega Figure Set Review

Yesterday I went my local Disney Store and totally fell in love with this Disney Princess Mega Figure Set so I knew I had to buy it especially after putting it on my Christmas Gift Guide! Luckily it's still in the Black Friday sale (till today!) so I got it for a great price. This retails at £44.99 in the UK but I got this for £25 in the sale, which I'm so happy about.

The set includes 20 figures from all the different princess movies. Now you can get these princess figures normally in two different smaller sets but the cool thing about this set is you get the sidekicks/animals too from Jaq & Gus to Rajah. It includes every princess up excluding Elsa & Anna, which is awesome as sometimes some of the princesses get left out of certain products.

The princesses & sidekicks included are:
  • Snow White & Forest Animals
  • Cinderella & Jaq and Gus
  • Aurora & Forest Animals Dressed as the Prince
  • Ariel & Flounder and Scuttle
  • Belle & Philipe 
  • Pocahontas & Meeko
  • Mulan & Mushu and Cricket
  • Tiana & Naveen
  • Rapunzel & Pascal
  • Merida & Angus

Most of the princesses sparkle as they are painted with glitter! The details on each princess are great and each pose really captures each character to the fullest.  This would be the perfect present for a Disney fan as it includes such a range of princesses, some that hardly get noticed anymore. Whether it's for a young child or an older fan, I think they will love it! It is perfect to keep in box as the box itself is so pretty or to take out and play with or display (like I am!). 

 I think this set is worth the RRP price of £44.99, with the range of figures and detail but as I said in my Christmas Gift Guide, I'm sure you can get this for less coming up to Christmas as The Disney Store always has some kind of amazing offer! 

Click here to buy this amazing set!

 I wanna know whose your favourite in the set?
Mine has to be either Snow White or the Animal Friends dressed as the Prince!
