Just a Cup of Disney: Bambi Dreams and Wishes 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 a Bambi Dreams & Wishes mug that is too cute for words.

Bambi, known from his self-titled film, is a white tailed fawn known as the Great Prince of the forest. He first leaped into cinemas back in 1942, which is based on the book Bambi, A Life in the Woods by Felix Salten. Despite there being lots of handsome Disney princes, I think we can all agree that Bambi is definitely the cutest!

This such an adorable mug! I think it could make the perfect Easter gift as it has quite a Spring-style decor to it with the light and pale colours. For any Bambi or classic Disney fan, I think this is a must have for your Disney cups and mugs collection. This is my favourite shape mug that Disney often uses for their products and makes it more interested than a straight mug. You can get this beauty from eBay for £8.99!

Are you a fan of the Bambi Dreams and Wishes mug? Will you be adding this to your cups and mugs collection?

Just a Cup of Disney: 100% Princess 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’s mug is perfect for any Disney Princess mug.

The Disney Princess franchise is a big part of the Disney family. There’s over 11 main Disney princesses and over 20 who are out of the main lineup. While Cinderella may be classed as the most classic Disney princess, it’s Snow White who was the first original Walt Disney Animation Studios feature film, which was released in 1937. Disney’s latest Princess is Moana, whose film released back last year in 2016.

This adorable mug is perfect for any Disney Princess at heart. Featuring some of the original princesses, including Ariel, Cinderella, Belle, Jasmine, Snow White and Mulan, there’s also the slogan which says “100% Princess”, fit for any royalty. I actually got this for my friend’s birthday a few weeks ago, so I thought it would be perfect to feature here. You can get it from Truffle Shuffle for just £6.99!

Who is your favourite princess? Would you add this Disney princess mug to your collection?

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?

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.

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.

Review: Beauty and the Beast (2017)

Ever since the first announcement of the film being made, I have been desperate to see the live action of Beauty and the Beast. Two long years later, the day arrived and I made sure my mother and I were to see it on the day of release. Having fallen so in love with the original Disney animation released in 1991, I had high expectations for the remake.

The film is suitable for all the family; from the tiny tots to the big kids at heart, Beauty and the Beast has the capability of winning the hearts of people of all age groups. The first thing I noticed with this film in comparison to the animation is that it’s far more detailed, which is probably why it’s of a greater length than I expected. It was refreshing to be able to learn more about each character in this one, with a bit more backstory to who they are.

Another difference is that the violence in this version is a bit more graphic but nothing that’s too disturbing. Sword fights are more visual and theres a few punches from the likes of Gaston, but nothing that’s in need of PG and very minimal gore.

It’s a step in the right direction to see a racially diverse cast in the film, especially compared to the 1991 version. Representation is hugely important and to see even some of the supporting cast of different races was a big step towards better equality.

Be the Belle of the Ball! 5 yellow dresses that channel Beauty and the Beast

Everyone finds Belle’s dress from the ballroom scene so beautiful and dashing and it’s definitely one of my favourite Disney princess dresses. So, I’ve decided to channel the art of Disneybounding and found some gorgeous yellow dresses inspired by Belle that are fit for any princess to pull off this upcoming Summer season.

This gorgeous cornelli dress is perfect to frolic in the summer sun. I love the pattern which sort of resembles damask and reminds me of the decor inside the Beast’s castle. This is a perfect seasonal pick for the sunshine and great to throw in a suitcase if you’re heading off to a sunny destination.
