Disney have now released slip covers for their animated classics. I may as well jump on that bandwagon too. Since I was looking to complete my set of animated classics anyway. How exciting!! I do not know if these ones are limited edition or even if they are for all 52 movies, all I know is they’re available in Asda and are really pretty.
And so, mama bear has started papering my room. This is my main wall. Victorian style. I’m so excited. I’m using the extra wallpaper on my new furniture I will (eventually) get. Vintage and pale, bring a bit of light into the room!
I’m now offering free delivery on the majority of items on my #depop. Everything except shoes as they’ll be sent via collect+. There will be more items going on soon so grab a bargain.
After searching for MONTHS for the “perfect” watch, I found this wee one on #depop. I paid only £5 and the seller even sent me a wee handwritten “thank you” for buying it.
It’s literally only arrived today, but it’s perfect. I’m 100% in love with my new wrist candy! I highly recommend. The seller was @danica94.
I downloaded this wee app to go about selling some items of mine that I no longer use. It’s quick and easy to use, however, my only negative comment is that when you search for an item or brand, it’s not very useful. There needs to be a “refine” button methinks. But aside from that, it’s wonderful.
I have no need at the minute really, but I am going on holiday next year so I thought some sale shopping on a few items for next year would be well thought out. I think I’m right. Haha. I’ll post again when they arrive and tell you how they fair.
Oh, you’re being spoiled today, two posts!!
Okay, this little app “Duolingo” is free, yup, FREE. I downloaded it yesterday to brush up on my French for going to Paris in November. It offers several languages including: Spanish, French, German, Italian, and Portuguese.
When you first start, it asks you to set a goal, how many minutes a day etc, then you go about doing 5 little quizzes to increase your knowledge. For someone (like me) who’s brushing up on their skills for a holiday, it’s great, however, I haven’t used it for a new language just yet!! But I’d definitely say, give it a try. 😊
So, as you all know, I have been collecting these beautiful DVDs. Sadly, I was unable to find the 24th DVD (Pocahontas). However, Alex woke me this morning at 3am to tell me she’s found her and was shipping her my way! How exciting!!
A wee thing about Disney DVDs that I didn’t know is that most come with a little piece of paper on the inside. If you go to the website it tells you, join, put in the code AND the last 6 digits of the DVD, you get 100 points. Once you gain 500 points, you can get a free DVD!! I managed to get The Arostocats, Tinkerbell, Tinkerbell and the Lost Treasure, and Tinkerbell and the Great Fairy Rescue. An exciting way to collect DVDs!
Off the clothing topic, Disney have released 24 movies with Villains on the covers to celebrate 90 years.
The list includes:
The Jungle Book
The Little Mermaid
Alice in Wonderland
The Princess and the Frog
Lady and the Tramp
The Emperors New Groove
The Black Cauldron
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Basil the Great Mouse Detective
Oz The Great and Powerful
101 Dalmatians (Live Action)
The movies were picked by those currently working for Disney, and the top 24 were chosen for the villain treatment. I bought The Little Mermaid and Peter Pan in Disney Store in Belfast for £5.99 each, but I bought Oz The Great and Powerful off Zavvi on eBay for £8.99. Sadly, the online Disney Store doesn’t stock the villain covers so you’d need to be in Belfast (or a disney store near you) to pick them up.
I, personally, am gonna try and get as many as possible since I’m updating my DVD collection to be independent from Rebecca’s. I’m particularly looking forward to getting Mulan and Pocahontas if I can find them, they seem quite elusive.
Keep in mind that these DVDs are only available for the month of June so it may be wise to collect soon!
For those of you who follow my normal blog, you will have already seen these bad boys. My new loves. My Vans sunglasses! You can get them here in peach or black.
Okay, my review is simple, buy them. They are definitely worth the money. I love the fact that the lens is round, despite the frames being cat-eye. Thought it’d be a new twist on an old classic.
They’re perfect for my small-ish face and don’t look to wide at all (which is something I always worry about). Well-made, sturdy glasses. 👍
On a side note, my nails are done by Kirsti Adair, and if you’re in the Larne area you shall find her here.
