EMP Disney Christmas £10 and Under Gift Guide

Hi lovelies! EMP contacted me a little while ago to ask if I'd like to be sent some things to do a Christmas gift guide on and of course I jumped at the chance! If you haven't come across EMP before, they sell clothing and merchandise from lots of different brands and fandoms including Disney! As well as selling the loveliest Disney clothing, they also have a great range of Disney merchandise so I'm featuring some of my favourite pieces of theirs here today which are all £10 and under - perfect for stocking fillers!
First up is this gorgeous Peter Pan pin (£6.99). I honestly think this has got to be one of the prettiest pins I've ever come across, and so reasonably priced too! This would be the perfect gift for any Peter Pan fans out there. They also have a Beauty and the Beast rose pin and Lilo & Stitch pin (both £4.99) as well!
Next is this gorgeous Beauty and the Beast choker (£7.99)! This would be perfect for wearing for a trip to the Parks or to add a little Disney to your everyday outfits. If Beauty and the Beast isn't your thing, they also have a Mickey Mouse one (£6.99) or a Maleficent choker (£9.99).
How beautiful is this Peter Pan mug (£9.99)?! Unfortunately it seems to have gone out of stock since I ordered these but it might be worth keeping your eye on the website in case it comes back! Instead, they also have this beautiful Beauty and the Beast (£6.99) mug available. If you're not sure what to get someone I think mugs are the perfect gift as they're both practical and pretty!
How cute is this little Stitch patch (£3.99)?! I've been wanting to customise a denim jacket with Disney patches for ages so this guy will be the perfect thing to get one started! If you've got someone in your life who loves Disney style then this would be the perfect stocking filler - there's also Jack Skellington and Zero (both £3.99) too!
Next up has to be my favourite! For only £4.99 you can get one of these adorable Funko blind boxes with a mystery Beauty and the Beast character inside! I got the Beast and I could not be more pleased - just look at that little face! There's also a Nightmare Before Christmas one (£6.99) for Tim Burton fans.
And last but not least is this lovely Moana and Pua Funko Pop (£9.99)! I think I've included a Funko figurine in almost every gift guide I've ever done as they're reasonably priced but so cute! Unfortunately this one seems to keep going in and out of stock at the moment but EMP have loads of Disney Funko Pops including Mrs Potts + Chip, Simba and Young Moana (all £9.99) so there's sure to be something for any Disney fan in your life!

Hope this helps anyone who needs a little inspiration for any last minute presents!

Thank you so much to EMP again for sending me these goodies! It was like Christmas come early!

Belle Winter Outfit DisneyBound Collab

Hi lovelies! It's been a while since I've done a Disney outfit post but when Victoria from Accio Victoria and I came up with this idea for a Blogmas collab I was excited to give it a go again! For this collaboration, Victoria and I have both attempted our own take on a DisneyBound of Belle from Beauty and the Beast's lovely winter outfit. In case you're not familiar with DisneyBounding, it's where you recreate a character's costume using your own clothing to create a look inspired by that character. I am so in love with Belle's beautiful winter outfit - I need a cloak of my own! - so this was a fun outfit to put together!
For my look, I used this gorgeous red coat from Next to represent her cloak, a white cropped jumper from New Look for the white fur from her hood and for her pink dress I chose this beautiful skater dress that I bought years ago at a market stall in Bath. I love the pleating on it! And finally as Belle is a book worm, I thought I'd finish off the outfit with this cute book-shaped clutch from Disaster Designs!

Just before I go, here's a little peek at Victoria's take on the outfit. I cannot fangirl enough about Victoria's look, she's done it perfectly:
Make sure to visit Victoria's blog to see the rest of the photos! She looks like a real life Belle!

See you very soon for my next Blogmas post!

Disney Store UK #GiftMagic Event Haul [Part 2]

Hi lovelies! Last week I posted part one of my #GiftMagic haul about when I attended the Disney Store's Christmas event and as well as being given lots of lovely goodies by the Disney Store which I featured in my last post, we were also given a voucher to spend in the Oxford Street Disney Store! Today I thought I'd share the lovely things I picked up as part of Blogmas as so many of these would make great Christmas presents!
First up is this beautiful Animators' Collection case! Aside from the gorgeous artwork on the outside and the lovely baby blue colouring, this case is so practical as has four wheels and is really lightweight! I should know... I used this case to get everything from my haul across London and it was so helpful haha! This would be the perfect Christmas gift for any Disney fans in your life who have some jetsetting planned for 2018.
Next up we have some tree decorations! My boyfriend and I finally moved into our first little flat together so 2017 will be the first time we'll have our own Christmas tree so I was eager to pick up some beautiful Disney Store ornaments to decorate it with. One of my boyfriend's favourite Disney films is Beauty and the Beast and he also has a bit of an obsession with the Aliens from Toy Story so of course I couldn't resist these two!
Also from the Disney Store's Christmas collection, I picked up this snuggly blanket! My favourite thing to do in the winter is cuddle up on the sofa and marathon films with a hot chocolate so we'll definitely be getting a lot of use out of this. I love that cute little festive Mickey and Minnie motif on it as well!
I also couldn't leave without picking up some soft toys! I bought this lovely Animators' Collection Owl from Sleeping Beauty (his little cape though!) and of course I had to add another Ufufy to my ever-growing collection. Ufufys are the perfect stocking fillers/Secret Santa presents as they're only £5 for the standard small size! I also chose this cute little Olaf's Frozen Adventure Olaf. I love the knitted effect on him!
I also picked up two jumpers - the lovely 2017 ladies' Christmas jumper which I will be wearing constantly to work this month and this gorgeous Art of Snow White one! The artwork was so beautiful on it I just couldn't leave it behind!
I also managed to get my paws on this Baymax mug which had been on my wishlist for quite a while. I love that it has a little pain scale on the inside! It's those little extra details that make Disney Store products so special. Whenever I'm feeling a bit under the weather now I'll be making myself a big ol' cup of tea in this mug so I can have a little TLC from Baymax!
This was a bit of an impulse purchase but I'm so glad I added this to my bag now! The Disney Store recently released a few sets of sleep masks and cosmetic pouches (including a really lovely Eeyore one!) and they're the cutest things! I can't seem to find them online at the moment but you might be able to track them down in store. They'd make great stocking fillers!
And finally something the boyfriend requested haha! I don't know too much about Star Wars figurines but the boyfriend was incredibly excited when he saw this one on the website so I knew I had to track it down!

Hope that gives you a little Christmas inspiration - whether as gifts or for treating yourself haha!

Thank you so much to the Disney Store again for inviting me along to this magical event. It was honestly like a dream come true and will definitely be one of my favourite moments of 2017!

Primark Custom Disney and Star Wars T-Shirts

Hi lovelies! I'm going to attempt Blogmas again this year and like last year I'll be posting every other day which comes to 12 posts, hence the 12 days of Blogmas (I know the actual 12 days of Christmas are after Christmas haha - it was just too cute a name to pass up!).

To kick things off I thought I'd share a perfect gift idea for any Disney and Star Wars fans in your life - Primark's custom t-shirts! Primark currently have a t-shirt making facility in their Tottenham Court Road store in London which I was able to visit and try for myself earlier this week so I thought I'd share some details and tips here!
How it works
When you arrive you begin by choosing your design on one of the screens on the desk. You can choose your own character, background, slogan and you can also add your own text! Once you're happy with it and picked the size you want, you can send it off to be printed. You can then pay for your shirt a little further down the desk and the collection point is right next to the till.

What characters you can get
At the start you can choose between either Star Wars or Disney and there is a decent range of characters to choose from! For example the Star Wars characters include Darth Vader and Stormtroopers and the Disney ones include Mickey, Minnie, Bambi, Thumper, Marie and Tinkerbell!
How much it costs
Adult shirts are £8 and kids shirts are £5 each

How long it takes
Once I'd sent my shirt off to be printed I think it was only about a 5 minute wait before it was ready to be collected. It was a very quick process yet the shirts came out beautifully printed!
The sizing is a little strange on these shirts! They're unisex so they advise you to size down but if you have a curvy body type like me then I think it's probably best to go with an oversized fit. I'm a size 12 and I went for a small and while it fits, being unisex it's not the most flattering fit so if I get the chance to visit again I think I'll either get a medium or even a large. They have all the sizes hung up on a clothing rail there for you to look through to help you decide what's best for you.
And my final design! I love that you could get a floral border - so pretty! I visited with the lovely @londondisney and @kateerindisney and we all decided to get our social media handles on our shirts! I hope this helps anyone who was thinking of visiting soon. There's lots of Christmas designs too so they would make great presents!

See you in two days times for the next installment of Blogmas!
