Grumpy's Top 10 Disney Movies

Hey Guys!

It's been a little while since I last posted – life has been pretty busy! In between attending fitness classes, going to weddings and just general life stuff, I have also started an exciting new job at a large tech company in Brighton.


Exciting times!

If you're thinking "hey, I clicked on this post because you mentioned your Boyfriend (Grumpy) in the title, I don't care what you've been up to"... then have no fear, the wait is over.

My Disney-disliking 'Grumpy' Boyfriend is taking over the reins today with his "Top 10 Disney Movies."

Getting him to put this together was... well, let's just say 'challenging'.

What can I say except, you're welcome.

Enjoy!

My review of the Maple and Whisky Candle Company!

Hey my little Disneys!

I hope you're all enjoying the Summer! I know it's only August, but believe it or not, I'm already SO excited about my favourite season, Autumn.

I've made no secret of the fact that I absolutely love all things Autumn, and typically I'm already raiding the shelves of my local Homesense, and picking up all the beautifully decorative pumpkins and scented candles ready for the season ahead. C
andles in particular are one of my absolute favourite things, but I always feel strange lighting them during the Summer months...

Where I can, I LOVE to incorporate Disney into my home too, as subtly and sophisticatedly as possible, and there is a brand that totally allows you to do this with it's amazing range of scents and fragrances...


I present to you all, the Maple & Whisky Candle Company!



I have been a HUGE fan of Maple & Whisky's offering for several years now... 


From Dole Whip to Pirates of The Caribbean, Walt's Office to The Grand Floridian Hotel... there isn't any scent that takes me back to Disney trips that Maple & Whisky haven't perfectly captured in their wonderful range of candles, melts, diffusers and room sprays!

I was very lucky to receive a couple of my favourite Maple and Whisky candles as a gift, and I can't wait to review them for you in this post.

Enjoy! And if you too feel the desire to purchase a little Disney magic for your home, be sure to use the discount code MERCEDES10 to receive some money off!


- Enjoy! And let me know your favourites!

My favourite Disney Park Snacks!

Hey everyone!

I hope you're all having a great Summer so far! It was Pride weekend in Brighton last weekend, plus I had a Wedding too... so it's been super, super busy!


For those of you that have followed the blog or my social channels for a while now, you'll know that one of my favourite things (perhaps my all time favourite thing) about visiting Disney Parks is the food. It's been a while since I did a food related post so I thought it was about time I shook things up!

For any of you that have listened to the ChatDisney Podcast, you'll know that I have been less than impressed with some of the food offerings at Disneyland Paris and Shanghai Disneyland in recent years so I felt, in order to balance out the negativity with the positivity, the yin to the yang, it was about time I highlighted my favourite things to eat at Disney Parks. Enjoy! And don't get too hungry glancing through this list!
