Happy Birthday Mickey Mouse

As you know I’m a big Disney fan and today is Mickey Mouse’ Birthday!

I thought I’d celebrate the day by sharing some of my Mickey pictures!

Mickey & Minnie wedding cake topper

We had a Mickey and Minnie Mouse wedding cake topper on our wedding cake. We’d discussed getting married at Disney World but knew it’d be too far for our elderly family members. So we just had a touch of Disney.

Mickey Mouse

Taken on our honeymoon. We were at Walt Disney World December 2008-January 2009. This was one of the parades that comes through Magic Kingdom.

Mickey & Minnie

Another picture from one of our holidays to Florida. This was one of the shows they do in front of Cinderella’s castle at Magic Kingdom.

Disney on Ice

Mickey at Disney on Ice. The performances are so good, especially since the skaters are all in large costumes!

Happy 89th Birthday Mickey Mouse!

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.

April

A Memory:

parkrun pacers

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. I’m not a member of a running club but parkrun is the club I belong to. I didn’t know Giles well at all, I only met him a couple of times but he was adored by many.

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.

What are your favourite pieces?

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.

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!
