If you have Disney fans in your house then you'll be spoiled for choice for stocking fillers this year as all of our favourite brands went into Disney fever with Mickey celebrating his 90th birthday. 

Here are some ideas for Disney stocking fillers for Kids.


Hallmark Itty Bitty's*
Itty Bitty's are the perfect size collectable, stocking filler. They are available from Amazon and there are many much loved characters available such as Disney Princesses's, Star Wars and more.




Disney Doorables
Disney Doorables Mini Stack Playsets would make great stocking fillers. They are the ideal size, they are fun and they provide a surprise. All of the sets can be stacked and built together in various ways making endless adventures. They are available from all good toy retailers.



Ralph Breaks the Internet Official Guide 
Ralph Breaks the Internet is currently showing in the cinema and it is fantastic. The official guide by Dorling Kindersley fits nicely into a stocking and is a must for any fans of the film. It's full of film facts and character guides from the much anticipated sequel.


Mad Beauty Disney Princess Face Masks
Mad Beauty do a fantastic range of Disney face masks which are available from shopDisney. They have Belle, Aurora, Jasmine and Ariel available.

Danilo Slimline Calendar 
Danilo offer a wide range of Disney slimline calendars which are a great stocking stuffer. 



Mad Beauty Tinkerbell Bath Fizzer Wand 
Lots of children adore bath bombs and fizzers so this Tinkerbell wand from Truffle Shuffle is sure to put a smile on their faces.



3D Stormtrooper Soap On A Rope
Soap on a Rope was all the rage when I was younger and it seems it has made a comeback. This apple scented Storm Trooper Soap is available from shopDisney.

This has been a very special year in the world of Disney. The main mouse himself turned 90 and the whole world celebrated. All of our favourite brands embraced Mickey fever and released products for Mickey's 90th anniversary leaving us Disney fans spoiled for choice.

Heres are my Mickey's 90th Anniversary Top Buys:



American Tourister Suitcase*
American Tourister have released an amazing collection of Disney legend 4 wheeled suitcases this year featuring our beloved Mickey and Minnie. The suitcases are hard and sturdy, lightweight with quiet wheels making them ideal for a mini break away to Disney.




Danielle Nicole Mickey Mouse Hand Backpack
It's no surprise that I love the Danielle Nicole Disney collection bags and I have a few already. Her latest collection featured the main man himself and this backpack has gone straight on my Christmas list. You can purchase it at shopDisneyUK.






Cath Kidston Mickey Mouse Wallet
If you're a regular reader of my blog then you'll know how much of a fan I am of the DisneyxCathKidston collaborations so I was over the moon to see them release a Mickey Mouse collection. I bought this wallet as the print is super cute (and I can't believe it has the Ducktales on it). I was gutted to have missed the bag.


Where's Mickey? Search and Find book*
I received this fab book by Studio Press Books. It's a great one to do with children (or by yourself). There were 90 special books printed in the UK which contain a Golden Mickey and I was very lucky to have one of them. 



DisneyxHype Clothes
Hype recently launched a huge collection of Disney clothes and accessories with awesome prints. My favourite picks from the range are the Lover Splice Crewneck and the Grey Polka Dot Skirt. Both items are perfect for some Disney street style.




Build-A-Bear 90th Anniversary Mickey Mouse
These two items may be the cutest of the bunch. Build-A-Bear have released a special edition Mickey Mouse. His feet are my favourite part of the new teddy. You can also get a Fantasia outfit to dress him up in.




Pandora Limited Edition Mickey's 90th Charm
I have a couple of Disney Pandora themed bracelets so I was very happy to see them release a limited edition charm for his birthday. 



Aden and Anais Disney Baby Dream Blanket*
Aden and Anais have had a Disney collaboration out for a while. They sell beautiful baby products such as muslins, blankets, swaddles and more. Some of their cute Disney designs include Winnie the Pooh, The Aristocats and more. To mark Mickey's birthday they released a gorgeous collection just for him. Their dream blankets are lovely. They are soft and just the right size for snuggling.





Disney x Vans
Last up is the insanely good collection that was recently launched by Vans. My favourite print from the range is 'Mickey Through the Years'. 




Have you seen any new products celebrating Mickey's birthday that you think I'd like?



*Items marked with a star were gifted to me, however all opinions are my own*
You’ve committed yourself to completing one of the toughest physical challenges you’ll ever have to face. The excitement you felt when you signed up has now given way to sheer panic as the reality of training sinks in.

Whether you’re looking at running a marathon, cycling across the country or trekking up a mountain, pushing yourself to take part in something way out of your comfort zone is a brave, bold and terrifying move. The good news is that taking on challenges like these has benefits not only to your physical health but also boosts confidence and your mental well being.

Physical challenges are some of the toughest you can train for because they don’t just require your body to be in tip-top condition but your mental toughness needs to be up there too. If endurance is about aching muscles, it’s also about grit and the determination to push through and complete the course.

How do you prepare for something so grueling and uncomfortable? You start now.

Plan Don’t Panic

For major sporting events, such as a marathon or endurance course, most of the sites will recommend a training plan for athletes. Take notice of it. Study it carefully and figure out if the schedule can be fitted in to your life. There’s no two ways about you may well have to sacrifice some of your cosy nights in and late starts for cold, dark training sessions but if you are to succeed, it’s a sacrifice well worth making.
Read around the mental aspect of training too and take on board any top tips from athletes that you respect.

Check you have all the equipment you’re going to need. Make sure your bike is primed and ready and activate that gym membership. Don’t get caught out in a last minute push for fitness that will leave you unprepared and open to injury, not to mention failure.

If your training schedule requires a lot to remember consider printing it out and placing it somewhere prominent. There’s not much more satisfying than ticking off another grueling training session. Get your fitness apps and training watch fully up to speed to track your sessions online.

Sometimes things do go wrong, even with the best preparation but even the bad training sessions will be useful to you. It’s only when things don’t go according to plan that you learn why that technique is one to avoid or why that particular brand of sports gel doesn’t work for you.

Your training is going to include more than just heading out to the gym or for a run, you’ll need to think about nutrition, so again planning ahead with a diet that supports your training needs is crucial. Consult the experts and meal plan for the week to make sure you’re not left staring at an empty cupboard in need of a post-workout boost.

Finally remember to rest. Your body will need time to recover.  Pushing past comfort is one thing but pushing yourself to exhaustion will seriously impair your performance.

Factor In Recovery

Alongside rest days you’ll need to consider other ways to help your body actively recover. Regular physiotherapy sessions will help iron out any recurring injuries, particularly if you visit a practitioner who is an expert in your sport.

Get some serious stretching in with Yoga or Pilates and swap your sport over to something different, like a weights session, to factor in some cross training.
If you’re still stiff and sore, invest in some foam rollers to get a deep massage for your problem areas. They’re a painful but cheap alternative to a sports massage.

However if you can get a regular massage in, your aching body will thank you for it.

The Big Day

As you get closer to event day it’s natural that you’ll have butterflies in your stomach and an increasing feeling of fear. You may even wish you’d never signed that form in the first place. This is the moment to take a few deep breaths and put your faith in all the training you’ve done. You may not feel ready but your body has been conditioned to go the distance, the speed or the heights so trust in your form.

Before the big day, make sure to re-read the event pack and have a plan of how you’re going to arrive, taking with you any equipment you need. Figure out how public transport might work, if there are any shuttle transfers for competitors and where to leave your kit bag to pick up afterwards.

Then it’s time to pack that kit bag. Your training will have provided you with a good idea of what you need to feel better after a tough session. If you need protein bars, sports shakes or a banana, make sure it’s all ready for you. Don’t leave packing till the morning.

It’s always a good idea to lay out your sports kit the night before, including your earphones and any race number you might need and have your phone charged ready.. If you’re carrying any extra water or snacks, be sure to load up your sports belt.

Have a quiet night, read a book, browse some blogs and get plenty of rest. Follow your nutritionist’s advice on what to eat and try and relax.

And you’re all set. It may be terrifying, it may be like nothing you’ve ever experienced before in your life but if you’re willing to push yourself to the limit and be one of the few who are willing to put themselves out there, you’ll never regret taking on that challenge.
Make sure you’re prepared, that you have everything you need to complete your training and sign up the support of friends and family to get you through those tough miles.

Use your mental strength to push you through the hard times and make it to the end for your glorious finish. You never know, you might enjoy it so much you sign up for the next one. Or perhaps not.

Happy 1st December. Here is our family Christmas bucket list for this year. 


What is on your bucket list?
I have a confession..I'm a closet Keeping Up with the Kardashians fan. I love nothing more than watching the lives of Kim, Khloe, Kylie and the rest of the family. Annoyingly I always seem to miss the latest episodes that's why I am super impressed with Cyber Monday deal for a subscription to TVPlayer.


The Cyber Monday deal is available for a limited time only and customers can get a year's subscription to TVPlayer from as little as £41.90 saving nearly £42 (usual cost is £83.88). You'll be able to catch up with the latest shows on MTV such as my fave, Keeping Up with the Kardashians on E!. Subscribers can stream 19 channels not available on Freeview, plus 61 other channels through Fire TV. The deal ends 5th December. You can view it here, TVPlayer deal.


I've followed the antics of the Kardashians for a while. To be fair, it's hard not to as they are all over social media. Kanye West is one of my favourite artists so when he and Kim got together I became even more interested in them. I went to see Jay Z and Kanye West in concert in Birmingham about 6 years ago and when I popped to the toilet mid show, Kim was walking past me. She was stunning in real life and I couldn't believe how petite she was.


I also love watching Kendall's life as a model. She has done incredibly well for herself and I always find watching her shoots and catwalks fascinating.

Do you want Keeping Up with the Kardashians? What show do you secretly love watching? What show could you binge watch?
