Disney Mickey Mouse X Cath Kidston

Cath Kidston have announced another collaboration with Disney and they’re bringing out more Mickey and Minnie items with the odd dash of Donald and Daisy! I’m really excited for the new launch but a little disheartened after trying to get things twice before and really struggling. This is definitely something Cath Kidston need to work on. Their system grinds to a halt every time there is a new launch of Disney items.

There is a really large selection of items coming out. So I’ve included the first 30 items which is mainly handbags and purses. Handbags are what started my love of Cath Kidston so it felt apt to include these rather than the crockery etc. However if you’d like to see the full selection they’re here (opens in a new window)

The items go on sale on Thursday 16th November at 7pm. You have to be quick though as the items go quick!

Now let’s have a look at the goodies.

spot buckle backpack

Button Spot Patches Buckle Backpack £65 – I love this but I know the buckle would annoy me. Having to get things out of a backpack can be fiddly enough as it is without throwing a buckle in the mix.

spot suitcase

Button Spot Patches Cabin Wheeled Suitcase £150

overnight bag

Mickey & Minnie Little Patches Foldaway Overnight Bag £55 – I own a couple of Cath Kidston’s foldaway overnight bags. They’re really good and surprisingly roomy!

shoulder tote

Mickey & Friends Shoulder Tote £55

continental wallet

Mickey & Friends Curved Continental Wallet £38

leather backpack

Mickey Stripe Leather Backpack £150 – I love Cath Kidston’s leather collection but I’m just not sure about the picture of Mickey on this.

lozenge bag

Mickey Stripe Leather Lozenge Bag £100

coin slot

Mickey Stripe Leather Folded Purse Coin Slot £45

saddle bag

Mickey Stripe Leather Saddle Bag £150

stripe strap

Mickey Stripe Strap £25 – These can be added to any Cath Kidston bag that has the loops for it. Nice way to change the look of your bags

round bag

Mickey & Minnie Little Patches Round Bag £50

trainers

Mickey & Minnie Little Patches Patch Slip On Trainer £40

keyring

Mickey & Minnie Little Patches Embroided Keyring £15 – Personally I feel £15 is a little pricey for a keyring!

universal case

poly set 1

Mickey & Friends Set of Two Poly Pouches £15

poly set 2

Mickey & Friends Set of Two Poly Pouches £15

sequin pouch 1 sequin pouch 2

Mickey and Minnie Two Way Sequin Pouch £26 – I’m not sure if this is a different picture of each side or if it’s one of those where you run your hand over the sequins and it changes the picture. Either way it’s a cute bag and sparkly so could be good as a little clutch bag on a night out.

foldaway backpack

Mickey & Friends Button Spot Foldaway Backpack £38 – I really like this but find the foldaway backpacks too thin. I’m always scared my things will bust through it!

foldaway tote

Mickey & Friends Button Spot Large Foldaway Tote £25

washbag

Mickey & Friends Button Spot Framed Washbag With Ears £25 – This is very cute! The ears really add to it

makeup bag

Mickey & Minnie Little Patches Zip Makeup Bag £16

cosmetic bag

Mickey & Minnie Little Patches Zip Cosmetic Bag £18

Disney’s Peter Pan X Cath Kidston

Cath Kidston have announced that their next collaboration with Disney will be a Peter Pan collection. As a fan of Tinkerbell this pleases me greatly. However, past experience shows, I’m not likely to get much from the collection if anything as everything sells out so quickly.

The collection launches online on Thursday 21st September at 7pm. This time it looks like a large collection including items in bags, clothing, homeware and Cath Kids! There is currently a preview online that can be viewed here. All images in this post are courtesy of the Cath Kidston website.

I really like the Tinkerbell polka dot dress. It even looks like this comes with a Peter Pan collar! Very clever. They are also bringing out a skirt.

Now Cath Kidston bags are my thing and I couldn’t choose just one so I’m going to be sharing them all, starting with this large navy tote. It has the iconic image of Peter Pan, Wendy, John and Michael as they fly over the London skyline to Neverland.

Disney's Peter Pan X Cath Kidston

This rucksack will be mine! I have the original London print this is based on as a rucksack so I need to add this to my collection.

These bags are so cute. I can’t be sure but I think the small silver star bag/purse is probably a Cath Kids bag. The navy star bag/pouch at the front looks like either a small structured bag or maybe a foldaway shopper bag. But can we just take in the Tinkerbell clutch bag? That is beautiful!

Disney's Peter Pan X Cath Kidston

The home items are lovely and I definitely want the London print cup that matches the rucksack. I also like the notebooks and pencil case. I probably wouldn’t order the cushion or crockery but that’s just because it wouldn’t match my house! Although I do need some new crockery!

2016 – A Review

For some reason this post didn’t publish when it was meant to and I didn’t even notice! Bad blogger! So I know it’s late but I thought I’d put it out there since I went to the effort of writing it and collating the pictures so here’s my late review of 2016.

At the end of April Giles, one of the founding members of parkrun and chairman of Gosport Road Runners passed away. People were asked to wear their club vests to the run.

What I Got For Christmas

I know some people don’t like these type of posts so feel free to skip by. I however love seeing what other people got. It gives me ideas for presents to ask for with my Birthday being on the way. I’m not going to detail all of my presents but below are some of my favourite presents.

Mickey Mouse Purse and Mary Poppins Bottle

My friends know I love Disney. These were part of my presents from two work colleagues. The drinks bottle is hard to photograph but it’s Mary Poppins and on one side has Mary’s silhouette and the other says “Practically Perfect In Every Way” I love Mary Poppins, it’s one of my favourite movies. My friend popped a coin in the Mickey Mouse purse so hopefully now it will never be empty.

Minnie Mouse Watch

How cute is this Minnie Mouse watch?! My mum got me this as a present I could open. I ask for vouchers from my mum a lot. My birthday is right after Christmas so all my gifts come at once. If I ask for vouchers I can then get myself things through the year. It helps stretch out the presents a little more. It’s from Avon and has a rubber strap which I like because in my work I can sometimes get messy and rubber straps are much easier to clean!

A gift from my keyworker

Speaking of work, here is part of a present one of the children from work got me. I absolutely love it. It’s very chintz and Cath Kidston-esque so it’s perfect for me, and the statement is all true hehe.

Cath Kidston Leopard Flower Backpack

Whilst we’re talking of Cath Kidston it’s time to bring on the big guns. Here’s one of 3 Cath Kidston bags. It’s the Leopard Flower backpack. I was lusting after this a while ago  but it went out of stock quickly. I saw on Twitter just before Christmas that it had come back in stock and dropped a few hints to my husband. It has so many pockets, this is going to become my new work bag.

Now for one of my absolute favourites. The Mickey in London Disney X Cath Kidston backpack. I love it. I was gutted when the pre sale took place and I had everything in my basket but the website was so busy I couldn’t check out and so I sat watching things sell out and one by one disappear from my basket. My husband got the email there was more in stock whilst I was at work and got straight on it and ordered this and…

Disney X Cath Kidston Spot Mini Satchel

This! The Disney X Cath Kidston Minnie and Mickey Mouse spot Mini Satchel. It’s perfection. I absolutely love it. It’s just the right size for when you’re popping out and don’t want to take a big handbag with you.

So there you have it. I’ve been one lucky girl this year.

Disney X Cath Kidston

It’s almost time for the next part of the Cath Kidston X Disney collaboration. This is the one I’ve been waiting for as it features Minnie & Mickey! An email was sent out last week with a sneek peak and I thought I’d show you my favourites.

Mickey and Minnie cardigan and Minnie Polka Dot dress

cathdisney01

These are so cute. I love the cardigan with Mickey and Minnie featured on the pockets. It’s not overly Disney or Cath Kidston so if you just want a pop of Disney then this is the cardigan for you. The dress however is the opposite, it’s so Cath Kidston and has a large Minnie face on the front. It’s a classic style and won’t go out on fashion.

Red polka dot Mickey Book Bag and Red polka dot Mickey and Minnie Shoulder bag

cathdisney02

The polka dot bags for me are a must have. I love the polka dot print Cath Kidston do and it’s probably the print I own the most of in a variety of bags and colours! So to team this with Mickey and Minnie is perfection to me.

Cath Kids Mickey Mouse Bag

cathdisney03

I know this is part of the kids range but I seriously don’t know if I’m going to be able to resist this little beauty! Just look at it! It’s adorable.

The online pre-sale starts on December 2nd at 8pm and the collection is available in stores from December 3rd.

September Roundup

September seems to have been and gone in a flash and as a result I don’t feel like I’ve done much but never the less. Here is my September roundup!

img_8989

Firstly in September I won a competition! I’ve never won anything before in my life so I was pretty amazed when I won this gorgeous palette on a giveaway over at Sophie’s Blog

img_9118

One evening after work we decided to go to JoJo Gelato in Fareham. I had this scrummy Nutella and Cookie supreme crepe. It was so good, especially after a hard day at work.

waitrose_01

We also visited the Waitrose Farm Shop. Here is the post about our visit.

img_9016

In Lee-on-the-Solent there was a super low tide on 18th September. I’m still discovering new things about living by the sea and this was one of them. The photo doesn’t do it justice but the sea really was a lot further out than usual.

img_9030 img_9060

At the end of September we went to Wales for 4 nights. I’ve never visited Wales before so it was nice to explore somewhere new. There’s a more detailed post to follow.

In September I did 8 blog posts which I think might be a record for me! If you missed any, they’re linked below:

Disney X Cath Kidston – Winnie The Pooh

So the first of the Disney X Cath Kidston collaboration has launched and already some of the items are sold out. They’ve released the Winnie the Pooh prints first. I’ll not be ordering anything as I’m holding out for the Minnie and Mickey items but here are my favourites from the range.

Balloon spot raglan dress and elasticated waist skirt

image1image2

The dress is £75 and the skirt is £40. I love the cut of the dress and the cute cap sleeves but also love how if you have just the skirt you can team it with a plain top so it’s not as much print all at once.

A Day in the Hundred Acre Wood Placement Sweat £35

image3

A cute design on a sweater that’ll be perfect for keeping warm now the days are turning chillier. This is Limited Edition so be sure to keep your eyes out for it coming back in stock.

Balloon spot mini reversible messenger bag £35

image4

I have a couple of this style of bag from Cath Kidston and they are so perfect for when you have a lot to carry. They’re surprisingly roomy and with it being reversible, its like having two bags in one!

Bramley Sprig modal PJ set £40

image5

I love the flowers on these and it’s a true Cath Kidston print. These are Limited Edition too so grab them while you can.

Balloon Spot Breakfast Cup & Saucer £16

image6

Cath Kidston crockery lasts so well. I have a few cups and saucers in various London prints and they look lovely on display but wash well and are sturdy.

There are also home ware and baby items available but these 6 are my favourites. I’m so excited to see what they release next!

Disney X Cath Kidston

The other night my phone started going crazy. Notifications were flooding in to all platforms of social media. My friends know me so well they were alerting me to the fact that two of my favourite companies were joining forces. Disney and Cath Kidston!!! This makes me so excited.

Img_8638

The first pictures released on Cath Kidston’s Instagram were of Winnie the Pooh. My heart sank a little, I’m not a huge Winnie the Pooh fan but then..there it was…a Minnie Mouse print!

Img_8639

I’m also loving that there is a Polka Dot Mickey print too!

Img_8640

All photos courtesy of Cath Kidston’s Instagram. This was just a sneak peek at what they’re doing but then one of my favourite Instagrammers @disneyfind posted this little beauty!

Img_8633

I pretty much need everything from the top row! And the bottom right picture is perfection. Some of the Cath Kidston accessories will go perfectly with the bag there.

I literally can not wait to find out more. Hurry up September!
