Twisted Disney Princess'



This is from another amazing artist I've come across on DeviantArt called Jeffrey Thomas! He has done a series of 'twisted' Disney Princess' ... this is his latest one of Rapunzel! It's not as scary as the rest!

His work depicts a different spin on Disney Princess' ... and they are awesome! One of my favourites is Ariel ... the attention to detail is amazing!! :) Please check out his Gallery

A Royal Celebration at Disney Stores!

I was in the Disney Store at the weekend (as you may have already seen! :P) And I got given this flyer! It shows information about 'A Royal Celebration', taking place in Disney Stores in the UK this Friday and Saturday!

It looks like great fun if you have kids! I'm not sure if this is for all Disney Stores UK nationwide - It doesn't say if it is or isn't on the flyer, so you may want to double check with your local store first before heading over! :)



I also spotted this on DisneyStore.co.uk a few days ago - Cinderella, the Royal Edition DVD! This was released on 4th April 2011 :) Whether it was released specially to celebrate the Royal Wedding or not I don't know ... but it sure is brilliant timing! :P

Shopping on a Saturday!

I went shopping today! :) And where did I end up but the Disney Store :P amongst other places :) 
So I thought I would share what I got! :)


Earth Day Shopper from the Disney Store - I love these big bags! They are so handy when you go food shopping :) and they're so much cuter than the supermarket branded ones :P

Easter Nest Cakes!



Its Easter Friday! Yeeey! And since it's Easter ... I thought I would try a classic Easter treat recipe with a Disney twist! I found this recipe for Humming Bird Nests, inspired by the Disney movie Pocahontas on DisneyFamily.com! They are SO cute! ^.^ I also made Honey Nut Chocolate nests! :) Om nom nom!

Disney Cars ... in your own Driveway!



I found this on my computer from January! I did it to my car one morning after it had been snowing all night! It was so much fun :) I wish I could have driven around with my car looking like a cars character, but I don't think it would have been very safe somehow! lol!

Disney Blog Hop Thursday!

Welcome to this weeks Blog Hop hosted by Babes in Disneyland!

This week the theme is "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" ... I tried to think outside the box but ended up taking a very simplistic route! lol!

Part 1!
Here are some photos of collectables that I saw in the Disney Gallery Store in the Disney Village on my trip to Disneyland Paris in 2007 :)

The Good

I want this on top of my wedding cake ... btw ...lol!

The Bad
(More like eeeeeevil!)

The Ugly

I laaahve this! It's from a 1995 animated short called 'Runaway Brain'
If you haven't seen it ... check it out below! It's so funny! :D


Part 2! 
So "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" is a Western film ... and Frontierland is a Western themed land in Disneyland Paris ... so here are some shots from Frontierland in Disneyland Paris that I'm really proud of :)




Hope you enjoyed my Disney Blog Hop post for this week! 
Thank you to Babes in Disneyland for hosting the hop! :D

Johnny Depp in Latest Disney Dream Portraits

For the first time, photographer Annie Leibovitz has included an actor in her Disney Dream portrait series, who actually plays the Disney character that her portrait is portraying!

Her latest Disney Dream Portrait is non other than Johnny Depp as the infamous Captain Jack Sparrow!


There is not only one, but two new portraits! The second includes American singer, songwriter and artist, Patti Smith; also depicted as a pirate, aaarrr!!


Both portraits read : "Where magic sets sail, and adventure becomes legendary"  *Goosebumps!*

I laahve them! They've been released in perfect timing for getting everyone in the mood for the soon to be released 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides'! ... I can't wait!

Disney Heroes!



Oh golly ... It's my Disney crush Aladdin! I have a soft spot for Prince Eric too ... but you can't beat 
Aladdin's cheeky charm!

I came across an artist on Deviant Art a few years ago called David Kawena ...his work is awesome!! 
He has a series of art called 'Disney Heroes, like you've never seen them before'. And believe me, if you haven't seen this guys artwork ... you definitely haven't seen the Disney Heroes like this before! His newest piece in the Disney Heroes series is Flynn Rider. Please check out his Gallery! But be warned! ... it probably isn't safe to click on if you're at work! ;)

For those of you who follow me on Twitter ... I said I was making something very exciting last Thursday night ... and here it is!! Mickey Mouse Cake Pops!! I was SO excited when these came together ... they are awesome!!

I found the recipe on DisneyFamily.com, but (as usual!) I had to change it slightly because some of the ingredients aren't readily available in the uk!

Disney Blog Hop Thursday!

Welcome to this weeks Blog Hop hosted by Babes in Disneyland!

This is my first go at this ... hope I do it right! Here goes!...

Here are some of my favorite Disney pics from the last year, not taken in a Disney Park!



I got this for my birthday from my lovely boyfriend! I laughed so much when I opened it and said ... when will I ever use this!? He said, well I thought you would like the Pascal charm on the bracelet ... and I was like oooh! I do! I will wear that! :P I looove Pascal from Tangled! He's so cute! My boyfriend also got me all the Pascal cuddly toys from America ... I'll post about them soon!


I saw this in Asda ... why oh why did it only come in child sizes! :P


I made these for Halloween last year! You can find the recipe here, which includes
a link to print the cute little Haunted Mansion headstones! 


My sister and I had a bake-athon one Saturday last August ... which included
these cute Toy Story topped cakes! ...



... and these Disney Princess themed cakes! The little pillows with
the glass slipper on them were adorable!

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Disney Recipe - Easter Mega Cupcakes!


I made some Easter Chick, Bunny and Sheep (Mega!) Cupcakes last Saturday! :)

I found the recipe for the Chicks and Sheep at DisneyFamily.com. The recipe for the Bunnys can be found at DisneyFamilyFun.com!

Sometimes when I find a fun recipe like this I can't source all the exact ingredients that are listed (especially if they are specifically American ingredients not available in the UK - this happens alot!)
I also find that I never follow the instructions exactly either! So I wanted to show you how I made these with easily accessible ingredients and how I put them together!

Share the love with WALL•E and EVE!



Ok, so I know I'm a little late, since this image was released a while ago! But I can't stop looking at it! 
This artwork is amazing! I also looooove the way Space Mountain looks in the background, it's one of my favourite rides in DLP!
