5 Best Disney Christmas Tree Ornaments

When my BF and I visited Disneyland Paris a couple of years ago, we were lucky to experience 2 seasons – Halloween and Christmas. If you go around the 1st week in November it’s a mixture of pumpkins and glittery snow.

If you have ever been to Disneyland, then you know there are plenty of opportunities to pick up Disney Merchandise in the little boutiques and in Disney Village. It’s so difficult to pick just a few things, so we chose some Disney Christmas tree ornaments, with the thought that every year when we decorate the tree, we will be reminded of what a magical time we had on our trip.

5 Disney Christmas Tree Ornaments

With that in mind, here are (in my opinion) 5 of the best Disney Christmas tree ornaments:

1. Mobile Mickey Mouse Icon Ornament

This has to be number one on my list, as this goes on the top of our Christmas tree every year. We picked up this iconic Mickey Ears Ornament in Paris after a fantastic holiday. Even if you don’t celebrate Christmas or have a tree, you can still get creative with these Disney ornaments and use them in other ways, great if you have a collection. Some of them even stand on their own, so you can display them all year round.

2. Jack Skellington Shoe Ornament

Of course I couldn’t make a list like this without including something from one of my favourite Disney characters. This Jack Skellington shoe ornament is such a quirky piece. I love the details, check out that bone high heel! There are quite a few shoe ornaments inspired by different Disney characters, it’s kind of difficult to pick just one.

3. Elsa Frozen Musical Ornament

How can it be Christmas without a Frozen ornament?! This hand painted singing Elsa ornament is beautiful! She sings ‘Let it Go’ from her Ice Palace. This can be displayed on a desk or tree and perfect all year round for Frozen fans.

4. Alice in Wonderland Drink Me Ornament

The more I look at this, the more I want to have a Wonderland themed tree. This Alice in her Drink Me bottle ornament is so fun!

5. Princess Jasmine Ornament

The Disney Princess ornaments are stunning, it’s hard to choose a favourite! Tiana and Rapunzel are also sweet ornaments. Glitter accents and satin style dresses are a feature on all of the Princess ornament dolls. This would look awesome on a Disney Princess themed tree.

This year our tree is going to be mainly Jack Skellington themed, we have a white artificial tree and black Nightmare Before Christmas bauble ornaments. Do you have a theme for your decorations? Or do you just throw it all on? :)
Once we’ve decorated I will add a photo to my instagram.

My Instaweek #47

Another week gone in a flash! It’s been a rainy instaweek, with storms, floods and snow in the Canary Islands! Of course I went storm chasing as it’s such a novelty here.

My Instaweek

Storm Chasing

It was nothing like the storm chasing in Twister, but it was exciting taking a drive and seeing beautiful cascades and water where it’s usually bone dry, such as in this video. (This is a channel used as a storm drain, it’s usually as dry as the desert, but we had so much rain in a short space of time, it just flowed down like a river. I was half expecting to see some Oompa Lumpas dancing on the side!)

Check out the snow on the top of Mt.Teide, Tenerife’s volcano

The storm went on for a couple of days, one night I decided to watch Daybreakers alone (big mistake) and there was a mad electrical storm so you can just imagine I was curled up like a terrified Chihuahua as the thunder and lightning crashed about. Speaking of little dogs…

Ay Chihuahua!

I have a new friend, her name is Reina, which means Queen in Spanish and she is the most adorable thing ever! She’s so small, this photo makes her look bigger than she is. Reina belongs to a friend of the family, but I so wanted to sneak her into my bag. ;) #kiddingnotkidding

New Washi Tape

I really need to do an update on my Washi Tape Collection post, as I have quite a few new designs. I just loved this raindrop one that my BF got me for my birthday. It was very appropriate for last week with all the rain we had. :)
Oh and my new Filofax pages have finally arrived from America, but that’s another story. Let’s just say they were the most expensive Filofax inserts in the world! (blog post coming soon)

Senior Dance

(Senior dance as in a dance for old people, not an American High School dance)
As I mentioned in my top 5 Geeky Apps post I love to check TimeHop each day and this really made me chuckle. So, yeah true story! I was the youngest one there haha. It was an outdoor dance in the local plaza and it’s right in the middle of my route to the bins. Of course I got nosey and had to take a peek on my way home.

Fangirl

Hurray! I’m finally getting stuck in my new book ‘Fangirl’ by Rainbow Rowell. I’m only 11% in, but I can already tell I’m going to be sad when I get to the last page. Maybe I will have to write a fanfic about a book about a girl who writes a fanfic. Bahaha!

My Instaweek #46

Hi cute geeks! Where is November going?! I’m nerding out because the weather is changing and I’m finally wearing my Mickey Mouse sweater! Without further ado, here’s my instaweek 46.

My Instaweek

Floating kidney

So the week started off a bit crappy, I found out that I need another operation on my kidney. I’m feeling a bit fed up about this, as my body is only just getting back to normal after my last kidney surgery for nephroptosis aka floating kidney. (Blog post about this coming soon) To cheer me up, my wonderful man brought me some pain au chocolat from the bakery I really like and also cooked dinner.

Hello Kidney

Fall tv

I’m so pleased that 2 Broke Girls is back on! I love the quick wit and humour from Max and Caroline and I love seeing the total they’ve saved from their cupcake business at the end of each episode. Also, how relevant it is, they mention instagram, trends and it’s relatable. In the last episode I saw, Caroline got Han’s prize tropical fish stuck in her top, it was hilarious.

2 Broke Girls

One night I was chilling out on the sofa and there was a Keeping up with the Kardashians marathon on. Previous to this I’d only seen about 4 episodes. I thought I’ll just watch one episode. 2 hours later and minus a few brain cells, I had to force myself to switch off. It’s so mind numbing and addictive at the same time. Kim was rescuing a little Chihuahua, so I just had to watch.

A new show I started watching this season is Jane the Virgin. It’s done in a telenovela style and Jane’s abuela speaks Spanish so I count this as homework. Jane is a virgin but she’s also pregnant, due to a mix up at the Dr’s where she mistakingly gets artificially inseminated. It sounds weird but you should give it a watch.

mountains and mario kart

After Spanish class on Thursday we went for a drive to the mountains. It was beautiful, we ate ‘papas con mojo’ in a restaurant with a view of this huge ravine. I also made friends with a little ginger cat, who wanted to show me round the village. Of course I fell asleep on the drive back home.

my instaweek

With new tracks released for Mario Kart 8, it was only right that we should have a Mario Kart night. It was really fun to race with Cat Peach and Link on the Excitebike track. It brought back a lot of memories!

Filofax Inserts 2015


I’m in the first year of using a Filofax and thankfully there was a reminder to order new inserts last week. This year I have been using a week on two pages, but it annoys me that the space for Sunday is really small compared to the other days. The day when there is probably more to note down!

So, I took to Amazon and ordered some new inserts for 2015. Because I had some Amazon US gift vouchers, I used the US site and so my inserts are coming all the way from Pennsylvania! That’s quite the journey, right across the Atlantic to the Canary Islands.

The inserts were about $11 and shipping was $15!!! I hope they arrive soon so I can prettify them with my new washi tapes!
