My Current Grail Disney Items Wishlist

Hi lovelies! The problem with being a Disney fan is that most of us always have a wishlist longer than a novel of the various Disney items we *need* in our life... The Disney fandom honestly has to be the most expensive fandom to be in! So the lovely Lize from Lize in Disneyland thought we'd collaborate and share the merch that is top of our respective wishlists at the moment! You can see what made Lize's list here. Let's begin!

Disney Showcase Live Action Cinderella
If you've followed me for a while, or if you're a fan of the film, you might know that my blog is named after the live action Cinderella ("have courage and be kind") so this gorgeous Showcase figurine has been on my wishlist for the longest time! It's so beautifully done and I love that it's her iconic ball dress - I was mesmerised by it from the moment it first appeared on screen! I will definitely have to add this to my collection soon.

Funko Pop
Halloween Town Sora
I've recently started playing Kingdom Hearts and true to my addictive personality, I naturally want to buy all of the merch, including this Halloween Town Sora! I'm a huge fan of Halloween too so this is the perfect crossover for me!

Walt Disney World Christmas 2016 Mug
This was a really hard pick because I've always got a list as long as my arm for grail mugs but this Christmas one has to be at the top! I posted a while ago about how I narrowly missed out on getting it from the Disney Store and it's haunted me ever since! It's the most beautiful Christmas Disney mugs I've ever seen and I so badly want to get my paws on it!

Snow Globe
Disneyland Paris Rapunzel Snow Globe
Another item I missed out on whilst it was on the Disney Store website, argh! I don't own a single Disney snow globe which makes me so sad - snow globes are so gosh darn magical! This Rapunzel one is my most wanted one as Punzie is always my favourite gal and little Pascal is just so adorable in the globe itself! Hopefully I'll be able to track this down on eBay someday.

Loungefly Minnie Mouse Sequined Mini Backpack
This is a very new one but it was like love as first sight... In the backpack form! This ridiculously shiny is currently only available in the US but I'm hoping and praying that it finds its way over here too because it's literally my dream bag... Rose gold, sequins and Minnie Mouse?! HELL YES GIRL.

Walt Disney World Castle
This Lego Castle is an absolute dream! It's a couple of hundred pounds so it will probably always stay a dream for me haha but I've recently got into building Lego - does anyone else find it oddly therapeutic?! - and this would definitely keep me happy for a good number of hours! Plus what a gorgeous display piece it would be once it was finished!

Those are my current favourties! Do you share any of these or do you even own some of these yourself (ngl I'll be very jealous)? Let me know in the comments below!

7 Disney Songs That Always Make Me Happy*

Hi lovelies! I've teamed up with Panasonic to share seven of my favourite Disney songs that never fail to make me happy! Nothing brings a smile to my face quite like belting out Disney songs and with a Panasonic Waterproof Bluetooth speaker, what better way to start your day than singing along in the shower to these feel-good anthems! I've chosen these songs from all over the Disney universe so there might be a few new discoveries, alongside some classics too!

1. Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious - Mary Poppins
I defy a single person to listen to this song without getting a smile on their face! The oh-so-lovely Julie Andrews recently appeared on The Graham Norton Show and proved that she could still say "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" backwards even now... Practically perfect in every way!

2. Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride - Lilo & Stitch
Although the Lilo & Stitch soundtrack is packed full of iconic songs, this particular classic is a favourite of mine as the Hawaiian singing always transports me to a warmer climate!

3. My Year - ZOMBIES
While it may be the most recent Disney Channel Original Movie, ZOMBIES has soared straight into my list of favourites for it's crazily catchy soundtrack. I absolutely love "My Year" in particular though because it's such a positive, feel-good song. It's definitely a must for any Disney playlist.

4. You're Welcome - Moana
Another film with a brilliant soundtrack! While most songs from Moana leave me all teary because ALL OF THE FEELS, it's impossible to not feel good after listening to the oh-so-sassy "You're Welcome". At the very least you won't be able to resist cracking a smile from attempting the rap from this song! I can't keep up even when I'm reading the lyrics!

5. Wind In My Hair - Tangled: The Series
Composed by Disney legend Alan Menken for the Disney Channel's brilliant Tangled: The Series, "Wind In My Hair" is just as good, if not better, than any of the original songs from the film itself! Even my non-Disney-loving-boyfriend can't help singing along to this when it comes on in the car!

6. Dream Big, Princess
This total power anthem that Disney released for their Dream Big Princess campaign is criminally unheard of! It's such an inspiring and empowering song, whenever I need a little motivation this is always my go-to!

7. When Can I See You Again? - Wreck-It Ralph
And finally, this has to be the most upbeat Disney song of all! It's such a fun song that you just can't help but dance to. Fingers crossed Owl City return with a new song for Wreck-It Ralph 2!

Did I miss any of your favourite feel-good Disney songs? Let me know in the comments below, I'm always looking to add more songs to my playlist!

My 5 Favourite Disney Universe Funko Pops

Hi lovelies! When I bought my first Funko Pop I thought I'd end up buying the odd one or two to add to my shelves but it's been just a couple of years and I've already built up quite the collection... These cuties are just too adorable to resist! I was hoping to share an updated collection post this year (you can see my previous collection post here) but unfortunately about half my Pops are in storage at the moment so I thought I'd share my current favourites instead!
5. Sally with Nightshade (The Nightmare Before Christmas)
Number 5 is my favourite spooky gal, Sally. This is the Nightshade version where she's clutching the trusty potion she uses to escape from Doctor Finklestein and it also features an adorable little black cat peeking out from behind her! I was kindly gifted this at an event held by EMP but it's still available on their website for £12.99!
4. Gus Gus in Slipper (Live Action Cinderella)
Look at this little cutie pie in his glass slipper! This is definitely one of the most unique Funko Pops in my collection - he really stands out on my shelves! I bought him a few years ago now but he might crop up on eBay if you keep an eye out.
3. Porg - Chase Edition (Star Wars: The Last Jedi)
I think we can all agree that Porgs are just about the most adorable things ever and this Funko Pop captures them perfectly! I was actually lucky enough to get the Chase Edition but the normal version is just as cute! You can order them from here for just £12.99.
2. Kylo Ren - Unmasked (Star Wars: The Force Awakens)
If you've been reading this blog for a while then you won't be surprised at this one! From the moment I first saw The Force Awakens I developed a bit of an obsession with Kylo Ren so as soon as I saw they were making an special edition unmasked Pop, I knew I had to track him down! He was only available in the US so he's definitely the priciest Pop figutr I own but he's worth every penny to me!

If you'd like something similar but without the hefty price tag, Funko actually released a similar unmasked one for Episode 8 which is available here for £12.99.
1. Ernesto de la Cruz (Coco)
PLEASE tell me I'm not the only person who has a weird lil' crush on this guy?! I know I'm not supposed to like him but there's just something so charming about him...? Questionable crushes aside, this Ernesto de la Cruz Pop easily steals the top spot on my list for how gorgeously detailed it is. I don't think I've ever seen a Funko Pop before that's quite so intricate! He's also available from EMP for £12.99.

What did you think of my choices? Let me know your favourite Pops from your collection!

Practically Perfect Mother's Day Presents For Disney Mums

Hi lovelies! With Mother's Day coming up this weekend I wanted to share some gifts that would make a magical present for any Disney-loving Mums out there! For Mothers that love their Disney Style, this Danielle Nicole Aurora Lips Clutch Bag (#1) (£45.00) or Couture Kingdom Beauty and the Beast Rose Earrings (#6) (£29.00) would make the perfect picks. Or if your Mama is in need of a bit of rest and relaxation then how about this beautifully packaged Mad Beauty Bambi Bath Soak (#4) (£3.99) to unwind with and then these Stance Minnie Mouse Socks (#5) (£13.99) to cosy up in afterwards? I have a pair of Disney Stance socks myself and they're honestly the nicest quality socks I've ever owned so they'll definitely be Mum-approved!

Alternatively if your Mum is a little like mine and always running about doing 50 things at once (I don't know how she does it!) then she'll love this Oh My Disney Sleeping Beauty Travel Mug (#3) (£10.00) for getting her caffeine fix on the go! And finally this Cath Kidston Mickey and Friends Teapot (#7) (£25.00) and Disney Store Minnie Mouse Half Mug (#2) (£12.99) would be perfect additions to the traditional Mother's Day breakfast in bed!

Hope this helps & a big ol' Happy Mother's Day to all the magical Mums out there!

The Disney Easter Gift Exchange

Hi lovelies! With Easter on the horizon (and sunny days and blue skies!), I thought I'd like to do something to celebrate the season! For the past two years I've hosted a Disney Halloween Gift Exchange on Twitter which is basically a Disney/Halloween-themed Secret Santa so I thought I'd try my hand at holding an Easter one on Instagram this year!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

How it works/rules:
- This is a secret exchange so I'll pick a person for each participant to send a gift to and a person for everyone to recieve a gift from! The person you are sending to and the person you are receiving a gift from will be different so it will be a great opportunity for you to get to know two people in the Disney community a little better!

- The theme is Disney and Easter so you'll need to include something from both of these in your gift. For example for Easter you could include some Easter chocolate or a card and then for Disney... Anything Disney-themed goes!

- The budget is £10 (postage not included) but handmade gifts are more than welcome!

- This is open to anyone who has an Instagram and would like to take part but only addresses in the UK I'm afraid due to logistics!

- Remember to include your Instagram handle with your gift so the recipient knows who it's from!

- You can post your gift by any postage class/type you wish, but you must obtain proof of postage and you'll need to send me a picture of this once it has been posted

- If for any reason anyone doesn't send a gift to their recipient and I don't get any contact from them I'm afraid I will have to blacklist you from taking part in any future gift exchanges I host (I know this sounds harsh but you'd be surprised how often this happens...!)

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

- I will be collecting everyone's details until the end of Sunday 4th March

- I will allocate everyone someone to send to by Wednesday 7th March and then you can start shopping!

- Your gift needs to be posted by Monday 19th March by the latest

- If I haven't heard from anyone with their proof of postage by Tuesday 20th March I will start chasing those people!

- If you haven't received your gift by Monday 26th March please let me know and I'll get something sorted. Don't worry - everyone will definitely receive a gift one way or another!

***If you think you won't make the last posting day please let me know! As long as I'm kept in the loop we can get things sorted!***

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

If you'd like to get involved:
Send me a message on Instagram (@courageandkindness) with these details:

1. Your full name and address
2. A few of your favourite Disney characters/films
(To make it easier for the person who is buying for you!)
3. Whether you'd be happy to receive sweets/chocolates

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

And that's everything! If there's anything you'd like to ask, feel free to send me a message on Instagram!

The Oh My Disney Collection at the Disney Store UK

Hi lovelies! The most amazing big ol' box of goodies arrived on my doorstop from the Disney Store last week and I'm so excited to share it with you! Digital Disney superbrand Oh My Disney have teamed up the Disney Store to create the most magical yet sassy collection and I am so in love. The entire range is utterly dreamy and there's everything from glittery notebooks to an inspirational makeup bag! Here are some of the wonderful things I received...
Pencil Set - £6.00
Journal - £12.00

Everything in this collection is so incredibly designed - it definitely feels like a collection that was made for the fans! While the usual popular films are covered in this collection like Cinderella and Snow White, they've also included some other Disney films that don't usually get as much love like Mulan and Brave which makes me so happy to see!
Luggage tag - £8.00
Sticky Notes Set - £6.00
Passport Holder - £10.00

As well as the beautiful designs, everything still has that usual Disney Store quality and attention to detail that you'd expect. I love how the makeup bag has an adorable Lion King print on the inside and even the travel mug has a proper sliding lid on the top, making it just as practical as it is pretty. No coffee bag spills for this sleepy Princess!
Make sure you check out the entire collection on the Disney Store's website! There's also an amazing pin set and the loveliest Millennial pink Cinderella shirt that I may have to add to my basket on a future order!

A huge, huge thank you to the Disney Store for sending me these gorgeous things. I'd spotted this collection online a while ago and I had been praying that it would come to the UK so I was so over-the-moon to be given all these goodies!

Disney Valentine's Day 2018 Gift Guide - For Her & Him

Hi lovelies! With only a few more days until Valentine's Day arrives I thought I'd share a Disney gift guide for anyone who needs a little inspiration for the Disney fan in their life! I've included quite a few things from EMP who are actually currently running a discount code on their Disney range for Valentine's Day! Just spend £20 and get 15% off your order with the code "EMPUKDISNEY15", valid until 11:59pm on 11th Feb!

If your partner loves a good t-shirt then how about EMP's Coco T-Shirt (#1 - £12.99) or the Disney Store's Minnie Rock The Dots Ladies' T-Shirt (#8 - £16.00)? Both of these are shiny new releases so hopefully they shouldn't have already picked one up for themselves! EMP'S Beauty and the Beast Sparkling Dress (#3 - £32.99) and Beauty and the Beast Rose Choker (#11 - £7.99) would also make the perfect Valentine's dinner outfit!

If accessories are more their thing then the Disney Store currently have lots of lovely Danielle Nicole bags and purses in stock like this lovely Snow White Coin Purse (#4 - £12.00). I have one of these and it looks and feels like it should have cost ten times the price! There's also this lovely (and romantic!) Tangled Pocket Mirror (#2 - £12.99) from EMP. And if you'd like to go a little more traditional, this beautiful Beauty and the Beast Rose Gold-Plated Enchanted Rose Bracelet (#7 - £27.00) from Couture Kingdom should be just the ticket!

If you're looking for a more of a gift-type present then the Disney Store's Lady and the Tramp Soft Toy Set (#6 - £20.00) and Mickey and Minnie Ufufy Mini Set (#10 - £6.00) are ridiculously adorable choices! And for those Tim Burton fans, these Sally + Jack Skellington Vynl Figures (#5 - £19.99) are a lovely alternative to the usual Pop-style figurines!

And finally, Typo have reduced this Mickey Valentine's Day Card to only 50p! Bargain!

Hope this helps!
