Beyoncé to star in The Lion King and 6 celebrities I want to see in Disney remakes

Move over, Simba, there’s a new Queen of the Pride Land and her name is Beyoncé. Well, possibly. Straight from the rumour mill, it has been tipped that the top choice to star in Disney’s live action remake of The Lion King is Queen B herself. With the franchise being so popular as a Disney classic and a broadway/west-end show, Beyoncé and The Lion King would be an incredible decision.

A source has been whispering into the ears of the press that Beyoncé is director Jon Favreau’s first choice to voice Nala in the remake which is currently in process. However, insiders have stressed that the Formation singer has yet to make a decision regarding the film yet, due to her being kinda busy being pregnant with twins.

Personally, I would love to see her take on a Disney role. I am a big fan of Queen B and Disney, so for me this is a match made in heaven. However, I’m fully aware of the responsibilities of a new baby mama, so whether or not she will agree to the role is another thing, considering the film is set to be in production pretty soon.

Disney have recently announced a bucket full of remakes, so there’s a lot of casting to be done! I thought I’d help out and pick some potential candidates for certain roles…

Ariana Grande as Ariel (The Little Mermaid)

We already know she can rock the red hair and she has an incredible voice to be able to take on the song Part of Your World. Ariana is killing it right now, so a movie such as this under her belt would be perfect. She’s already taken on roles in kids’ TV Shows (Victorious, Sam & Cat), so she has younger fans, too. I’d love to see her donning a fishtail and lending her voice to the evil Ursula in a trade for her to become human.

Just a Cup of Disney: Winnie the Pooh mug

Welcome back to Just a Cup of Disney! Where I’ll be sharing with you some amazing Disney mugs and mugs that I find for you to add to your collection. Today I have found an adorable Winnie the Pooh mug.

Winnie the Pooh, also known as Pooh Bear, is the world’s most famous bear, based on author A A Milne’s son Christopher Robin’s own teddy bear. While he first hit the scene back in 1924, he joined the Disney family later on in 1966. From books, films, TV shows and DVD specials, Pooh has been part of everyone’s family for generations and the silly old bear won’t be going away anytime soon!

This adorable Winnie the Pooh Mug is pretty minimalistic with a sketch of Pooh Bear having a snooze with the words “I’d rather be in bed” surrounding him, which is something I say far too often. This is perfect for your morning brew or late night beverage; ideal for any sleepy Pooh fans. This beauty is available from Primark for just £2.50*!

Are you a big fan of the silly old bear? Would you add this Winnie the Pooh mug to your Disney cup collection?

The Launch of LUSH Spa Cardiff

As I write this, I’ve just got in from my first ever blogger’s event and though I’ve always wanted to go to one for some time, I think this one being my first made it all the more special. I’ve been a fan of LUSH (AKA Lushie) for some time now and it’s my favourite beauty brand.  I’d known about the spa for some time, so I had been eager to see it for maybe even a year, so when I received an invite to the launch of the LUSH Spa Cardiff, I was ecstatic.

I was the third person to enter the spa and was greeted with a name tag and a free drink which is from The Comforter? treatment that’s available in the spa. It was a pink fizzy drink that had candyfloss in it, which tasted amazing.

In my small group of three, the lovely Molly was the one to take us around the store on a special tour of the new building and, of course, the new spa. The first thing we witnessed was a demonstration of the brand new Yellow Submarine bath bomb, which we were informed is exclusive to the LUSH Spa Cardiff! As you can see in the video below, it looks incredible.

Molly showed us some of the bath bombs and melts which all looked gorgeous. If it were possible, I would have bought one of each. Maybe when I’m a billionaire I’ll buy a LUSH shop all for myself and it will be open to special friends and family… I guess it’s time I started playing the lottery, then!

March Monthly Favourites 2017

Last month was quite quiet for me, so I decided not do a monthly favourites. However, I’m back and have quite a bit to share with you for my March monthly favourites.

Divide (Deluxe Edition) – Ed Sheeran

Ed’s big return after his year-long hiatus (which was a good idea for the hectic year of 2016) was highly anticipated by millions and he did not disappoint. In just one week alone, the album received close to 9 million streams, which is highly impressive. Sheeran also managed to get 20 of his tracks in the UK Top 40, which is an incredible record. The album has an eclectic sound, with Irish folk to songs evoking golden-age pop, from jittery guitars to a wispy ballad, there was something for everyone on Ed’s third album. Divide definitely exceeded my expectations and I have found myself playing it multiple times since the release beginning of this month. My favourite songs include Nancy Mulligan – an Irish folk-y song, dedicated to the love story of his grandparents, Barcelona – a song that makes my wanderlust soar and Bibia Be Ye Ye – which which literally translates to “Everything will be alright”.

Available on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes and in most stores

Barry M Matte Me Up Lip Kit in Runway

 

I’ve never truly seen an appeal to the Kylie Jenner Lip Kits, probably because of my lack of interest in the Kardashian-Jenner family, but when Barry M released these limited edition lip kits at such an affordable price, I knew I had to get one. I’ve been a fan of Barry M since I first experimented with make-up when I was around the age of 11 and the quality of their products is amazing for the price range. I stood in the Superdrug store, unsure of which shade to get. After a long decision and swiping the testers on the back of my hand, my mother and I decided that the shade Runway was best suited for me. Matte lip products can be a real hit or miss and I cannot stand something that is so drying, but these lip products were of a great quality and actually hydrating for a matte, which was hugely satisfying for me. The staying power is pretty strong, only needing to top up after eating a meal, so this is great if you want to wear for a few hours and not an issue to reapply on the go.

Available from Superdrug for £6.99

Just a Cup of Disney: Rapunzel Princess Mug

Welcome to a brand new Disney series! This is part of the Disney Nerd series which is dedicated to the wonderful world of Disney cups and mugs. I am such a hoarder of cups and mugs, especially Disney ones, so I thought I’d share ones I find and put on my wishlist with you to share my love of Disney crockery.

Today’s cup is a beautiful Rapunzel Princess mug. Of course, Rapunzel is the princess of Disney’s 2011 animated movie Tangled, which tells the tale of of the captive 18 year old who has no idea of her royal heritage who is freed from her tower by the kingdom’s most-wanted bandit, Flynn Rider, who gives her a sense of freedom.

The pretty pink mug features the beautiful Rapunzel with beautiful silhouettes of items that relate to the princess, including paintbrushes, lanterns and her little best friend, Pascal. The back has her name in a gorgeous fairytale font. It’s not just cute on the outside as the interior is a stunning shimmering pink.

It’s always time for tea with quaint mug, making it fit for a princess (or prince!) You can get it from Disney Store for just £7.99.

Are you a Princess Rapunzel fan? Would you add this to your Disney cups and mugs collection?

 

Disney Nerd: A Dream is A Wish Found at Primark with Disney

It’s no secret that Primark have definitely gone up in people’s estimations over the past few years and now Disnerds are majorly impressed with everything Disney at Primark. After being blown away with the amount of amazing Disney products available there on my last visit, I thought I’d do a round up of some of the must haves.

Beauty and the Beast socks – £3.00

With the release of the live action remake, it’s no surprise that Disney at Primark have jumped on the Beauty and the Beast bandwagon. These were the first thing on display in the Cardiff Primark so they automatically fell straight into my basket. These socks are so cute and affordable, I couldn’t say no! Perfect for any fan of the animation or the remake.

Bambi cup – £5.00

This cup is so fricking adorable! I’m really into cute and quaint cups, so this would definitely earn a place in my cup cupboard. Bambi is such an adorable Disney character and there’s quite a lot of homeware with him and Thumper on, so Bambi fans need to get a move on to see all the Disney at Primark because a large section is full of these sweet woodland creatures.

I will never be cured…

I don’t want to make this a blog post that’s meant to get views and comments, it’s not me trying to do anything… except talk. I just need to get it out there and whatever happens, whether it gets 1 view or 100 views, then that will just be.

I’ve always been an anxious person. Ever since I was really little. When attending the kids’ parties in Primary School, I barely left my mother’s side. I’d sit with the parents rather than go to play with my classmates. My mother would push me to go and play with them because she knew it was important, but I didn’t like being away from her. When I was 10, I was officially diagnosed with anxiety. I didn’t understand what that was at first, I just called it nervous. There’s a big difference between the two, believe it or not. Having anxiety and having anxiety issues are also two different things.

For a while, maybe three years, I thought that’s all it was going to be was anxiety. Then, when I was in year 8 and had my first breakdown, I was diagnose with borderline depression which then turned into clinical depression. I was just 13 when this happened. So I’ve been dealing for quite some time. Then, when I was 16, I had another breakdown and that’s when I received a third diagnosis of cyclothymia, which is a form of bi-polar. Lesser talked about, but just as important to be recognised. The thing is, cyclothymia is one thing, but to have anxiety and depression with it, it’s almost like a more severe case.

Having cyclothymia can be difficult. It’s exhausting and people don’t understand. Unless a person knows me very well and knows my story, they generally just think I’m just an annoying person. But it’s like being on a pendulum. Swing one way to manic, and I’m hyper, I talksofastthatifyouweretotranscribeitthenitwouldbelikeakeyboardismissingaspacebaraNDTHENSOME TIMESICANGETLOUDUNINTENTIONALLYTOOanditrytobequietanduseanormaltoneBUTTHENIGETLOUDAGAIN and it really bugs the fuck out of people. They’re like “why can’t this kid calm down? Why is she so annoying?” and often I can pick up on myself being annoying and I try to stop it, but it just doesn’t happen.

Kids at concerts: Should they be allowed and what’s the age limit?

Earlier this week I was lucky enough to see Olly Murs in concert (again) and it was such a great time, but there was something I noticed… there were some kids at the concert.

Now, I’m not saying that they shouldn’t be allowed to enjoy themselves, but here’s where I began to get concerned. I counted around 20 children at this event. It was a General Admission, which means that it’s all standing. It’s a very crowded environment with loud music and a lot of intoxicated people. Olly, in particular, is an artist who caters to a full age range of teens, right up to middle aged mums, which is great to have such a broad fan  base, but this means concerts aren’t exactly child-friendly. Olly has a large female fanbase who, like him, are quite cheeky and flirtatious, which there’s nothing wrong with. But between innuendos, some risque moves and lyrics… is this really the place for children? I’m talking as young as six years old and at least half of them ended up in tears or with a sour face.
