Hey everyone and thank you for coming over to this blog post. I am really hope to make this kind of post a regular thing (weekly, if possible) just to keep you guys updated on what is happening in the UK with all things Disney but also sharing some things more personal to me.
My reason for doing this?
Well, where do I start? I want to be really honest with you all and explain to you all how I have been feeling recently. I have been a little bit lost over the past couple of months and I was starting to feel like I was losing a lot of confidence and belief in myself. Then James had been poorly, on and off of for about three months and we had a bit of scare which put everything into perspective for me.
I started Disneyfind because I love Disney. I just wanted to share my love for Disney with other people and I think I had forgotten this. So, finally I am back in a good place and enjoying Disneyfind for the right reasons so thank you to all of you who engage with me and send me kind messages. You have no idea what it means to me! I still can’t understand why over 20k of you watch my stories every day but I want you to know that every like, kind message or comment that you make honestly means the world to me.
So now I’ve got the honest part out of the way, I’ll start….
We were in London last weekend for the christening of one of Gareth’s cousins and it was held at the Italian church, which is stunning. It was also fun to get the boys dressed up and to spend some time with Gareth’s family which we don’t see much of as they all live in London. Aoife couldn’t make it as she was meeting her boyfriends family for the first time so that was a bit of a shame.
I also managed to do my first run in forever as I would like to lose a little bit of weight before we go to Florida, which is only in 42 days ( OMG – sorry if I am going on about it too much! I am just so excited) I don’t know about you guys, but I have to be in the right frame of mind to lose weight, I find it so difficult otherwise. I don’t want to be skinny but I just want to feel comfortable enough to wear shorts, I think I just generally need to have more confident in myself, which is easier said than done at times. So I’ll keep you updated with my progress with that one! I am planning to go to a few classes at the gym this week but like I said “watch this space”
So, this past week has been very exciting actually. I was invited to the HQ of Chamilia and treated to afternoon tea there to celebrate the launch of their NEW fine jewellery range. We also launched a giveaway to win the Little Mermaid set and they gave me a few gifts to take away with me, which was very kind. I never take experiences like this for granted and I know that I am very lucky to have such special opportunities. See the full collection here Disney fine jewellery collection

Equally, if you are enjoying what I post or have any suggestions of other topics I could cover then also just give me a message or a comment and I will try my best to add them.

The NEW Disney Eats collection from Disney Store was released last week and it is so good! It is a Mickey and Minnie cooking range aimed at adults and children. In the range there are aprons, cookery hats for both children and adults although I have to admit that the kids products is the cutest. There is also matching whisks, bowls, spoons and spatulas. I love he fact that it is encouraging parents to cook with their little ones. James and I could have done with this range when we attempted to bake cakes on Sunday, if you saw my stories, it was a bit of a disaster. Find the full collection here Disney Eats
This week my chosen place to visit is a Toy Story themed Afternoon Tea at Fawsley Hall in Northamptonshire. This themed afternoon Tea is available on selected dates through May and June.

This week saw the release of Avengers Infinity War. I am actually so excited to se this movie. I never used to be a big Marvel fan but since I married Gareth that has all changed. Gareth is a huge superhero fan so quite often our chosen Saturday night movie would be a Marvel but I have actually become attached to them myself now! I have enjoyed all of the Avengers movies, Guardians of the Galaxy is now one of my all time favourites and I have a real soft spot for Captain America. So I can’t wait to get a babysitter and manage to go and see it which seems a lot harder these days with both of the boys and no Aoife on hand to help.
This week have also been treated to some images of the upcoming CathKidston x disney collection. I wasn’t too sure whet to expect from the Alice in Wonderland collection but I have been very pleasantly surprised. It is gorgeous, I was also very excited that Cath Kidston followed me on Instagram, which is exciting! My favourite piece from what I have seen so far is the Alice dress.
I hope you have enjoyed my first every weekly blogpost, I am not the greatest writer but I do find that writing can often be very therapeutic and helps me to focus. If you have ideas of anything else I could add then please let me know?
Thank you for reading and have a great week!
