Okay, so when I was asked to review DisneyLife, Disney's new streaming service – I was a tad nervous.

Nervous, why nervous, I hear you ask? 

Well, because my expectations were sky high, and I was a little worried my sweet friends at Disney would disappoint.

Spoiler alert: they did not.

Anyway, last weekend, I cleared my not-so busy schedule, and dedicated a full Saturday to the true DisneyLife experience. 

The weather was shitty and grey, so I closed the curtains, wrapped up with a mug of tea, and let the magic unfold. 

First point of information – signing up is SUPER easy, which is a blessing for impatient humans like myself. 

Fill in all your details (name, card number etc), select your adorable character, Minnie Mouse thank you very much, and away you go.

Also, let's talk about the price for a little moment – DisneyLife is only €6.99 a month (cheaper than other streaming services – sorry Netflix), so its a no-brainer.

Next, there were the COUNTLESS choices, I hardly knew where to begin! 

Do I go old school and watch The Little Mermaid, or do I embrace the modern world of Disney, and watch Frozen for the 87th time? That's when I realised that the fun doesn't stop at animation, as I scrolled through I saw that SISTER ACT was an option. 

Sold.

There were so many amazing movies to choose from, which leads me to the discussion of my favourite DisneyLife feature – the offline mode. 

I travel quite a bit, and tend not to love the movies shown on planes, but that is no longer an issue for me! DisneyLife allows you to download movies and shows while in Internet, and then you can watch them forever – No wi-fi? No problem. 

All-in-all, I reckon there are a number of days in my future where I will be snuggled up in bed, binge watching Disney movies. 

DisneyLife is class. End of.

It all started with a mouse…

If someone had told us that there would come a day when a selection of wedding cakes would make us clasp our hands and squeal in glee, we'd have given them a wide berth.

And then we stumbled upon these Disney-inspired gems.

A sugary ode to some of our favourite characters and storylines, these cakes are the brainchild of couples who decided to bring some extra magic to their big day, and we're here for it.

From Mickie and Minnie to Belle and her beloved Beast, these cakes are a thing of beauty.

Here are just some of our favourites…

1. Shout-out for this one.

2. This. Just this.

 

Probably my favorite wedding cake ever!

The Lion King is the next up and coming Disney live-action to hit our screens, and though it won't be here until 2019, Disney have already revealed exactly who is on board to voice act in the new flick. 

One of the most exciting revelations is that Queen Bey herself is on hand to star in the flick.

Beyoncé has been confirmed to play Nala, while the divine Donald Glover will voice Simba.

As we reported a number of months ago, actors and comedians Seth Rogen and Billy Eichn have been enlisted to play iconic double act Timon and Pumbaa.

James Earl Jones, who originally voiced Mufasa in the 1994 classic, will return to take on the role once again. 

Chiwetel Ejiofo is stepping up to the role of Scar. 

The film is due for release in July 2019. 

We're already ridiculously excited

So, Bette Midler isn't a fan of the rumoured Hocus Pocus remake and our inner 90's kids are crying uncontrollably.

Last month, we reported that everyone's favourite Halloween movie was getting a reboot – and while we can hardly contain our excitement, it looks like not everyone is too thrilled about the upcoming project.

Speaking to People at the Restoration Project's annual Hulaween party, the actress said:

“I know it’s cheap. It’s going to be cheap!”

Adding: “I’m not sure what they’re going to do with my character. My character is very, very broad and I don’t know who they’re going to find to play that.”

Bette played the role of Winifred Sanderson in the 1993 original, alongside co-stars Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy.

Mick Garris, a writer who worked on the original Disney Channel film previously said that re-casting the story's main characters would be a “big mistake” – but we're not holding our breath.

When asked by reporters have big the pay check would need to be before she would consider reprising the role, Better simply replied, “no!”

Brb – just mourning the loss of our treasured childhood memories.

You may have realised by now, but we are TOTALLY obsessed with all things Disney (shocking, I know).

Anyway, that has led to a constant hunt for new and gloriously magical products, that just put a smile on our faces.

I don't mean to alarm you, BUT we have found the best Disney related goodies yet – and they're homegrown!

Odds&Trends is a gorgeous company that sells special gift boxes, filled to the brim with Disney goodies, along with other magical things (we're talking mermaids, wizards and unicorns!)

"We met in our home town of Limerick over 15 years ago. Both a bit blunt, both ambitious, and both creative, we knew immediately that we would be close friends," says the awesome Jenny Lang, co-founder of Odds & Trends. 

Explaining how their fantastic business idea came about, Jenny said: "With an eye for detail, and over 20 years of online-shopping experience between us, we have always enjoyed picking out the perfect items to bring a smile to the faces of our friends and family."

"And so the concept of Odds&Trends was born, from our belief that giving gifts should be as stress-free and enjoyable as receiving them. Therefore, we've decided to do the leg work so that you don't have to."

Amen to that sister, we thank you in advance! 

Magical Friends Gift Box

Odds&Trends was founded in 2017 and since the first day in business, they have been bringing the best selection of products and merchandise to their magical customers. 

The best part is that the two gorgeous ladies behind the brand put so much time and effort into ensuring a variety of fantastic items, along with unique limited edition and seasonal items that fit any budget.

"Tell us more, immediately!"  I hear you ask? 

Basically, the ladies offer magical themed gift boxes that are filled with gorgeous goodies – like mermaid makeup brushes, Disney princess prints, and even the occasional butter beer! 

We're telling you that this is the BEST present idea out there – and we'd like to order 87 boxes. 

The best part? These gorgeous goodies won't break the bank, at a very reasonable €22.50! 

I mean, kindly shut up and take our money.

Nothing reminds us of Christmas like sitting around the table playing a board game, right?

Sure, eventually someone gets extremely p**sed off by losing, flips the game in the air and the fun is over – but that's just a family story to tell! 

Anyway, this year might be the year that NO arguments over a board game occur – all thanks to our amazing pals at Disney. 

That's right folks, this year will see the official launch of Disney Monopoly, and we can hardly wait to play! 

The counters have had a Disney makeover, swapping the Old Boot for Cinderella's Glass Slipper, naturally enough. But wait, there's also the Lamp from Aladdin, the Circus Tent from Dumbo, and Hook's ship from Peter Pan.

HOW DIVINE?

There's also a tiny version of Snow White's Poisoned Apple, and Beauty and the Beast fans can rejoice as there is a little stack of teacups too – we're swooning!

The game is just like the classic in that you pay bills and taxes and all that other fun stuff. 

However, there are cute perks like teaching Bambi how to ice skate, which will help you earn a fortune. So cute. 

The money has had a Disney mix up too, with cute little dalmatian paw prints scattered on it, and in true magical style, you'll be playing for castles and cottages, instead of flats and semi-detached homes. 

You better act fast if you want to get your hands on one of these babies, as they are limited edition, and cost £27.43 from Amazon

Bargain.

Hands up if you totally love when brands team up with Disney to make an extra special collection.

*Throws hands in the air immediately*

Seriously, whether it's pyjamas or furniture, there is nothing we love more than a super magical Disney collaboration.

The latest folks to team up with the wonderful world of Disney? Kiehls – one of our all-time favourite skincare brands.

Each of the four gorgeous new items in the Disney x Kiehl’s collection will feature Mickey Mouse on the packaging (so pretty!)

Of course, that means the always-luxurious Kiehl’s products will be even more adorable than usual!

But wait, there's more – 100 percent of net proceeds (up to $100,00) from each item will also help benefit charity, namely Feeding America.

The collection will officially launch on November 2nd, but we're to give you a special sneak peak. 

You're welcome.

If you've ever dreamt of being a real life princess who travels the world for a living, we suggest you keep reading.

Disney is currently on the hunt for wannabe princes and princesses to work on its luxury cruise ships in a variety of exciting roles.

From character performers and DJs, to nursery counsellors and housekeeping managers, there's a position to suit every qualification.

Each role will of course require some specific skills, but the most important thing to keep in mind is that all Disney staff must go the extra mile to make the cruise experience as magical as possible.

According to the company's website, the “amazing crew members are a big part of why Disney is known as a world-renowned leader in the entertainment industry.”

“With incredible itineraries that visit exciting destinations around the world, crew and officers can chart the course for an unforgettable adventure with Disney Cruise Line.”

Sounds amazing, right?

Of course it does – travelling the world via the happiest boat on earth – what's not to love?

Well, there's just two small catches.

  1. The roles are based in the US, which means you'll have to be willing to move.

  2. You need to commit to a seven-day working week with limited time off.

But if the idea of being ferociously happy seven-days a week hasn't scared you off, you can apply for a role at disneycareers.com.

See ya round Summer, we never liked you anyway. 

Lol, jk, we miss you already.

However, the shorter days and colder mornings mean one really exciting thing – Christmas is coming! 

It may seem a bit premature, but we're excited. 

We're also super excited about the new festive decorations that Penneys have on offer.

The amazing store are selling Disney themed Christmas tree baubles, and holy moly, they are divine. 

We are particularly obsessed with the Minnie Mouse decorations, the don bows, polka dots and glitter.

However, there are also Beauty and The Beast baubles, Frozen baubles, and even a Winnie The Pooh option. 

All adorable, as you can imagine. 

The four packs (the ones with the Mickey mouse ears) are €5, and then the special baubles are €6 each.

Will we be buying every single one of them? Hell YES.

Check them out, and tell us which one is your fave.
