Going on holiday can be an exciting time. Whether you’re planning a girls weekend away, a family holiday or perhaps a mini city break, making sure you pack the essentials can really ensure your trip goes smoothly. Here are my top five holiday essentials. Camera One of my biggest essentials when going on holiday is my camera. I used to have a heavy and pretty bulky DLSR, but I’ve seen the light and have invested in a super lightweight, portable and easy to carry camera. Some of the best compact camera Panasonic offer online are perfect for holidays. Panasonic’s line of 4k… [Read More]

Disneyland Hotel Review

If you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past month or so then you’ll be forgiven for not knowing that we’ve not long returned from a 5 day trip to Disneyland Paris.

A Night In with Belle: Beauty and the Beast

As a massive fan of all things Disney, it probably comes as no surprise that my favourite Disney Princess of all time is Belle from Beauty and the Beast. She’s fearless, feisty, brave and strong, but also feminine, intelligent, kind and caring. For me, she’s the best Disney Princesses because she encapsulates what women should be. She’s not a typical princess, and by that I mean she doesn’t loves pinks, she’s not dim and she doesn’t always falls for the wrong man like most princesses do. I genuinely think she’s a princess that can be looked up to, as a… [Read More]

Disneyland Paris Trip Report Day 4

If you’ve enjoyed reading my Disney Trip Report, you can read them all here, along with lots more Disney posts! So day 4 is our last day in Disney. Sad times! We knew we had to make the most of our last day, so we crammed in as much as we could and that also meant watching the castle illuminations show one last time. On the morning of our last day, we had breakfast in inventions in our hotel (the Disney Hotel) and then we headed straight over to Frontierland as R was desperate to meet Peter Pan. When we… [Read More]

After having breakfast in our hotel (the Disneyland Hotel) restaurant, Inventions, we headed straight to the Studios. We arrived around 9am and found a small crowd of people waiting. We joined one of the lines so pretty close to the front of the queue. When the… [Read More]

Pirates of the Caribbean Jacks Pirate Ship Review

A few weeks ago I took my children to a local play centre because they had a pirate day going on. In addition to the pirate day, children also had the chance to meet Captain Jack Sparrow. Obviously not the real one, but he was a pretty good look a like and my girls absolutely loved him! They spent ages following him around, talking to him and helping him find his buried treasure! The trip was a success and it was also pretty good timing because it was just a few weeks before we went to Disneyland Paris and saw… [Read More]

Disneyland Paris Trip Report Day 1

Disneyland Castle

It’s hard to believe that two weeks ago we were in Disneyland Paris. I  booked our trip rather spur of the moment last October and remember thinking that it was ages away. Well, now I wish I was back there because the time we had there has flown by! We stayed in the Disneyland Hotel which was absolutely amazing! I knew before booking our trip, that if we were going to go to Disneyland, then we had to do it properly and stay in the Disney Hotel! It was everything I thought it would be and more! More on the… [Read More]
