The dreams that you wish do come true πŸŒŒ

So you may or may not know that on the 26th July my husband took me to Disneyland Paris πŸ™‚ he booked it as a surprise as I have never visited Disneyland and it’s the 25th anniversary of the park opening this year so it seemed fitting to go πŸ™‚ I thought I’d share some snapshots with you guys today and tell you what we got up to πŸ™‚ so I hope you enjoy this journey x

Wednesday 26th July

We got the 9:07train to London then went over to st pancreas station where we checked in and waited to board the Eurostar πŸ™‚ this photo is us on the Eurostar ready to start our journey to France!! The journey was super quick and the Eurostar is so nice the facilities are great and it was a super smooth journey πŸ™‚ we stopped at Lille and headed to Lille Europe train station to catch our connecting train…when we got to the station however there were police and army everywhere yelling in French to get back from the area we asked someone what was going on and apparently there was a suspect package in the station that they suspected was bomb! Thankfully it was all dealt with and the station was reopened 10minites before our train was due to depart!! This was my first time on a double decker train so Darren booked us first class tickets on the upper deck it was so much fun!!! We arrived in Disneyland train station at 4:30 and headed into Disney village where we got a McDonald’s then headed to the bus station to catch the shuttle bus to our hotel πŸ™‚ the hotel was super nice and only a 10minute journey to Disneyland we had a swim in the pool and a drink at the bar then headed to bed to rest up for our first day at Disney!!! Xx

Thursday 27th July

Top gifted from mum&dad shorts charity shop shoes vans headband primark

We had breakfast at the hotel then caught the 11am bus to Disneyland when we arrived we collected our tickets and headed into the main park…I was stunned into silence seeing the Disney palace and just the shere size and all the sights and smells I had no words!! We walked around alot seeing where everything was and exploring fun little places such as Aladdin’s cave of wonders and Alice’s curious labyrinth which made me a very happy girl! The first ‘ride’ we went on was it’s a small world because have you really been to Disney if you didn’t go on it’s a small world? I really enjoyed it! Then we went on pirates of the carabean which had only opened up on the Monday it was SUCH an amazing ride!! We then watched the parade which was fascinating and headed for some food. We decided to go back to the hotel for a shower and a cup of tea then headed back to the park for 10pm to watch the fireworks display and….I cried ! It was just so magical and being there in that moment with my husband who had planned the suprise trip just made me feel incredibly thankful for all that I’ve got and for being there in that moment!! We got back to the hotel at 12:15!!! Zzzzzzz

Friday 28th July

Top primark shorts charity shop

Today we went to the Disney studios park which was so fascinating it was more behind the scenes bits but still had loads of rides πŸ™‚ we did the tram tour which goes behind the scenes and shows you special effects it was so much fun!!! Then we went on the Armageddon experience it was awesome and so clever I really enjoyed it!! Then we decided hey let’s go on crush’s coaster it’s a kids ride sure but it sounds fun……..well my god it was the fastest scariest roller coaster I’ve ever been on!! (I am a wimp!!) But it was so much fun my legs were like jelly afterwards!!! We then went to watch the stunt show and just WOW the stunts were amazing I really enjoyed this!!! 

Saturday 30th July 

Our last day 😦 today we travelled home so only had a few hours we decided to go back to Disney studios for Darren to ride the aerosmith roller coaster he really enjoyed it!! Then we got annual passes so we can go back as there was SO much we didn’t do!! Then we went on haunted mansion which was a super cute little ride which was really meant for kids but we wanted to do it! Then we went shopping and headed to the train station..

Summed up. Magic. Pure magic I loved it ❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀

Summer OOTD a Collaboration with Being Chantal

Well, you have to have interested in fashion of course. I was thinking perhaps an ootd? Summer or winter. (Depending on your country) I’m feeling a bit spicy, like blowing up my creativeness. SO, if you are up for it email me: beingchantal@gmail.com PS: This is for blogpost or youtube πŸ™‚

via FASHION COLLAB ANYONE? β€” Being Chantal

This beautiful girl is Chantal and I have been following her blog and YouTube for a long long time! Chantal posts on WordPress and YouTube about a variety of things such as outfit of the day posts, look books, self help posts and cooking posts (all of which make me hungry as they look super yummy!) so when Chantal was looking for people to do collaborations with i knew i had to jump at this chance!! So today I will be showing you guys how i style jeans for summer and head on over to BEINGCHANTAL (link at the top of page) to see how she will be styling leggings for summer which i am very much looking forward to as i have various pairs of leggings and no idea how to style them so please please please check her blog out!! Edit: Chantal’s post will be live tomorrow πŸ™‚ ❀

 

Here is how i am styling jeans this summer i hope you enjoy πŸ™‚

x

Pair with flowy fabrics

If i am wearing “heavy” material on the bottom such as denim I will pair them with a nice chiffon/silk/cotton top that’s more breathable and helps keep you cool. I have paired this high-waisted pair from primark with a lace bralet also from primark and this cute sun patterned chiffon wrap blouse from Marie curie cancer research charity shop.

Adjust the length

I like to roll my jeans up in the summer to create different lengths not only does this create a different style but it also helps to keep you cool!!!

Accessories!!

Think about what accessories and footwear to pair your jeans with to help keep you cool and finish off the look, I added my black mule sandals that i got for 99p from barnardos (originally office) my floppy black sunhat black velvet choker and some primark sunglasses.

Come back tomorrow for TWO posts
