How to add Disney Magic to your life in the UK ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’ซโœจ

This is the excerpt for a featured content post.

So, for those of you who follow me on instagram you may know that I have just started a new vlog series. To celebrate 30 years of Disney Store, I thought I would set myself a challenge ( I love a little challenge) I have decided that over the next few months I would try and visit all Disney Stores in the UK and Ireland. There are 42 stores in total and I am actually so excited about this adventure.ย 

I don’t know about you guys but I would just LOVE to be able to visit one of the Disney parks on a more regular basis. But let’s me realistic, it is never going to happen. I live in Newcastle for starters and my nearest park would be Disneyland Paris. The fastest route to Paris is flying but there is no way that we could afford to visit there on a regular basis. So my ย hope is that I can show people that you can sometimes find a little Disney magic in the UK. I think people will be surprised by just how many magical experiences and places you can have here in our home towns and cities.ย 

I asked my followers to complete the following survey Disney magic in the UK and Ireland this was so I could get the inside info on what wonderful experiences there are in your towns and cities. โ€‹

 

โ€‹So, if you are interested then you can pop over and subscribe to my YouTube and share in this exciting adventure with me and my family.

Why am I starting a blog? ๐Ÿค”

This is the excerpt for a featured content post.

I’m sure some of you are wondering why I have decided to start a blog now? To be honest, I don’t really know that answer to that question myself. I did start one about two years ago, but at that point Disneyfind was quite anonymous and I was not too sure about the kind of content I was going to use. However, over the past year or so, I feel like I’ve allowed for more of my personality to come across on Disneyfind and I guess that naturally this is the next step. 

What to expect from the blog? ๐Ÿญ

I guess most of the Blog content will be Disney related, but I also feel that it may be a useful place to share other experiences and a little more about myself with you all. 

I think that the beauty of instagram is that it is so simple and people can just see the image where it’s from and make a decision to buy it. I would quite like to use my blog as a way to express my opinion on merchandise, films, Disney news and experiences that I have in more detail and this would seem like the perfect place to do that.

Also, I would like to use this area to share some of my own Disney collection with you all. I am open to suggestions so if there is anything in particular that you may want me to blog about then please put it below๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป

Top 10 Disney favourite Disney parts of my home ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’ซโœจ

I didn’t quite plan to have so much Disney in my home but it just kind of happened… do you know what I mean? Like when you think that you need a clock and then you see a Disney clock and think I just have to have that! Well, that happens a lot in our house…..

I am actually very lucky that Gareth is also a big Disney fan as I am sure that some partners might not be quite so accommodating. So slowly but surely our home had become filled with lots of Disney pieces and do you know what? I absolutely LOVE it! I know it won’t be to everyone’s taste and I am sure that some people can’t understand why a 37 year old woman collects snowglobes or buys way too many Disney mugs but I am proud of my home and I honestly wouldn’t change it for the world. 

So I thought I would share with you all my TOP TEN Disney pieces in my home. It’s actually very hard to rank them and I change my mind from day to day but here we go! 

NUMBER 10


Peter Pan and Tinkerbell wall art from EBay – I came back from work one day to find that Gareth had bought this and put it beside our alarm system. I love it and I told James that Peter and Tinkerbell add some fairy dust every night to keep us safe ๐ŸŒŸ

NUMBER 9


Olaf toilet sticker from eBay – Gareth also bought this one… I went out for a run a a couple of years ago ( I need to do more of this) and when I came home Gareth had put this on the downstairs toilet. I think it just adds a little fun to the toilet and people always have a little laugh when they see it. 

NUMBER 8 


Disney outdoor area – I took this picture last Summer and I really hope that we get to enjoy our garden as much this summer! We picked up this little children’s patio set from a car boot sale for ยฃ10. The little lights are from Matalan and the cushions are from Primark. I love the Mickey Mouse bird house which is actually a Disney Traditions piece that I bought when I was visiting my brother in Antwerp. 

NUMBER 7


Bedroom Wall Art – I really wanted to add some art to my bedroom as the walls were quite bare and me and Gareth agreed that a Disney wall would be best! So we bought a few frames and used some we already had. We then filled them with some Disney related bits and pieces. This included our wedding invites, a photo of us all at the Disney Store Christmas party, and a picture of our wedding day. I then used some gorgeous prints from various Etsy sellers for the rest. These included:- 

Disney underground print from Disney is always a good idea, the Castle print is from Oh you pretty things, the foil print is from Sweet little Gems

NUMBER 6 


Alice in Wonderland fairy door from Magic by Mimi –  this is one of my most favourite little pieces of magic in our home. I wanted a fairy door for ages and then one day I came across this Alice one and thought it would look perfect in our hall way and it does! 

NUMBER 5

MY CHOPPING BOARD – I get so many compliments about this chopping board and people are always asking where we bought it. I was very lucky and a very kind friend actually made it for me. I love it so much and it’s amazing that such a simple piece can add so much to my kitchen.

NUMBER 4 


Jospeh’s shelves – Jospeh doesn’t have his own bedroom and hopefully one day the boys will share a room but I really wanted somewhere to display all of the special pieces that belong to him. So here it is – the shelves are from Ikea and they fit this little space perfectly! All of the little personalised  pieces were sent from some fabulous Etsy stores. You can watch my unboxing video here Joseph gifts unboxing 

NUMBER 3 


My lovely kitchen – I just LOVE my kitchen and I do appreciate just how lucky I am. When it was just Aoife and I we lived in a little flat and even though I loved our little flat it is lovely to now have this kitchen . I do enjoy cooking and spend most of my time in here so it’s nice to have some Disney bits around the place. The Mickey signs were bought from BHS a couple of years ago. The Mickey Mouse clock is from eBay and we picked it up for ยฃ3.99 – total bargain! 

NUMBER 2 


Our Living area – this is where we pretty much spend all of our time as a family. My brother in law kindly gave us these paintings and I knew they would look perfect here. A few people said that it might be too much and maybe I should just use one but I think they are great! 

NUMBER ONE

โ€‹

Disney snowglobe display – this is my favourite part of our house for the moment! We have lived in this house for about three years now and we have only just managed to get this room sorted. I actually said that there was no Disney in this room but never stuck to that plan! We had these shelves built in to the wall and while Gareth was at work one day I decided to put my snowglobes on them and I think they look perfect โœจโœจโœจ 

So I hope you enjoyed my top 10 Disney bits? If you have any questions then please leave them in the comments below. Also comment below any suggestions that you may have for further blog posts.
