What I Bought From Walt Disney World

So I'm just about adjusting to life back in London after spending 2 wonderful weeks in Florida and I thought I'd do a little haul post to show you some of the goodies I picked up whilst at Walt Disney World! I literally spent all of the spending money I took...every last penny, and I could have spent more! My favourite item I picked up has got to be my Chip mug. Beauty and the Beast is my favourite Disney film and I couldn't wait to get one of these from Disney Springs. I still haven't decided whether I'll drink out of it yet or just use it as an ornament?

I couldn't go to Disney and not feed my Tsum Tsum addiction so I picked up these 3 cuties. I had planned to get the WDW Park limited edition Tsum's (monorail, train etc) but they didn't have them anymore which I was gutted about! I got Rapunzel as I didn't have her yet, Duffy and the bride from the Haunted Mansion who is pretty cool! To be honest there weren't many Tsum Tsum's around in Florida I don't think they're that big in America, they had a really poor selection in Target and JC Penney's which was disappointing.

How awesome is this Disney Monopoly?! We didn't plan on getting this but we saw it at the toy shop in Disney springs and thought it was too cool not to get. I think every family needs a monopoly board and it just so happens ours is Disney! It has a pop up castle in the middle of the game and the pieces are Disney characters such as Mickey and Minnie. The board is based around the parks so you buy rides instead of towns and if you build a hotel the piece is a Disney castle! 

I couldn't believe how many pin badges there were, I knew they were popular but not this popular! I don't collect the pins ( this space) but I thought this one was way cute so had to pick it up. Some of the pins can be pretty expensive but I thought this one was pretty special.

Olly loves any kind of 'mystery' purchase, so when he saw this mystery princess pin set he really wanted to buy it for me, even though I'm usually really against these as I always end up with the rubbish characters. Basically Olly just likes seeing my reaction when I get the bad ones because I act like a baby haha. Anyway I did pretty well with this pack (it was tense) as I got Rapunzel and Pocahontas, neither of them are my favourite Disney characters but I like them both so I was happy.

And finally our Disney Magic Bands. We weren't staying at a Disney resort so we didn't get these free but mine was only $12.99 and Olly's was $22.99 (because his has Mickey printed on it - mine is plain) which I didn't think was bad at all considering how convenient they are. I'm going to do a full pot on tips for WDW so I'll talk more about these then and what they can be used for but they basically replace your ticket so you don't have to keep getting it out.

What I Got For My Birthday

It was my birthday a few weeks ago and so I thought I would share with you some of the gifts I received. I love reading other bloggers posts about what they got for their birthday so thought I would give it a go for myself. I didn't do too much on my actual birthday, just had a nice relaxed day with Olly, but in the week before I had several birthday dinners with friends and family which was lovely. On the morning of my birthday Olly came into the bedroom with an amazing chocolate cake he had bought for me from Wholefoods. It had lots of gold candles on it and I made a big wish when I blew them out. I then opened my presents from Olly which were wrapped in the cutest wrapping paper ever.

He bought me lots of little things as he knows I love opening presents! I love the 'grape soda' pin badge as Up is one of my favourite Disney films and is a film me and Olly went to see at the cinema together years ago before we were even going out, so it's quite a special film for us. A really cool present he got me was a voucher to adopt an animal from Born Free. I can choose which animal it is and I've had a look and think I might choose a turtle! One of my favourite presents from Olly is this Belle figurine, she is my favourite Disney princess and this is limited edition.

I guess my 'big' present from Olly was a gorgeous Swarovski bracelet. It's so sparkly and I love the dark blue colour. Later on I received a delivery which were some flowers Olly had ordered for me, they are the prettiest flowers in the world and look so lovely on my dressing table. Olly's sister Daisy got me a really cool Disney book all about the characters and films, I've already read a bit of it but can't wait to sit down and have a good read. My work colleagues got me a grey Kenzo jumper (which you may have seen me modelling in my Birthday Outfit Of The Day post!) and I absolutely love it. 

My brother surprised me with a voucher for champagne afternoon tea at The Shard which I am so excited about! I'm going to take my mum when she visits London and have a girly afternoon. My other brother and sister in law got me some yummy chocolates from Hotel Chocolat as they know I am a bit of a chocoholic, oops. I got quite a big present from my mum and dad so I'll save that for a post of it's own as it deserves it!
