This day was pretty epic. In fact, it was out of this world. Day 11 had a definite Star Wars theme and we loved it. From getting the most amazing hug from Chewbacca to BB-8 cupcakes, we were embracing all of the new Star Wars themeing at Hollywood Studios.

We stayed here from opening right until close and there was still plenty more to do. Everyone saying that this is a half-day park definitely hasn’t tried to watch all the shows and meet the characters. We were really surprised at how much there is to do here.

If you like improv and comedy, this is definitely the vlog for you because we saw the Citizens of Hollywood quite a few times through the day. We love their brand of humor so made sure we got to see a few of their shows. They’re truly hilarious.

Make sure you take a look at my top tips for Hollywood Studios below after watching the video!

It’s mid-February, so naturally everyone is thinking about Valentine’s Day. I can’t deny all the loved-up couples their chance to flaunt how much they adore each other. It’s the one day of the year where we can’t moan about soppy Instagram posts, so we must allow them their chance.

How much often do you show your gal pals how much you love them, though?

Galentine’s Day is the perfect time to remind them, and I think it’s just as important to celebrate this day as it’s more-prominent counterpart. Friendships are a massive impact on overall happiness. How can a women get through life’s trials and tribulations without the support of other girls to lean on and share in your successes and commiserate your failures? Friends are your support system, and Galentine’s is the perfect time to remember how important that is.

With this in mind, five of my best gals got together at my flat on Saturday night. We ate tonnes of sweets, ordered Dominos, watched Bridesmaids, shared our troubles, ate Lola’s cupcakes, and laughed a hell of a lot.

Here are some ideas for your own Galentine’s get together.

This week’s vlog might look like we’re slacking a bit. It appears that we casually go to ‘Ohana for an incredible evening meal, followed by an evening at Epcot. But what did we do for the rest of the day? Sleep?

In fact, a lot of our day did not get captured in the vlog. We started off at Typhoon Lagoon, going on all the slides and enjoying the wave pool for a few hours. I didn’t want to risk having my camera stolen from a locker or swallowed up in the wave pool, so I took the morning off vlogging.

Have a watch of this week’s vlog, then read on for all my tips, tricks and to hear about Typhoon Lagoon.

I am often surprised by the amount of bloggers who have friends and family that aren’t aware of the very time-consuming hobby that they have. It can seem strange to keep it a secret, but in reality, the opportunity to talk about blogging rarely comes up in conversation. On the other hand, family and friends can be the biggest support and encouragement when it comes to blogging.

So what should you do? Is there one clear answer? Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of telling people about your blog.

Personally, I have told all of my close friends and family that I blog. It definitely makes it easier to explain what I’m doing when I’m tapping away at the keyboard and talking to a camera in the evening!

I may be a Walt Disney World veteran, but now I’m mixing it up. I have always been to Florida every few years, so I’m not due for another trip until at least 2018. Yet, a few months after I got back from Orlando, the urge to book another holiday was overpowering. Of course, I could have booked a weekend break or a big trip to another part of the world. But if you know me, you’ll know that I can’t resist Disney for too long. Combine that with two friends that eventually wore me down, and it equals one trip to Disneyland Paris.

I’m going for four nights in early April. We have good times on the Eurostar, so I hope this will mean that we get to do all the big rides, see all the shows, and meet lots of characters as well. As well as Carrie and Sabrina, I’m going with all the girls that I went to see In The Heights with, so it will be good to get to know them all better.

Also, a five-day park ticket is around the same price as an annual pass soooo I might be purchasing one of those as well. Did someone say Christmas trip? The festive period is my favourite time of year and I have never been in a Disney park while the decorations are up. Could 2017 be the year to change that?

For the next two months I’m going to be researching Disneyland Paris tips and tricks to try and get some semblance of knowing what is going on. There’s also so much to learn about the 25th anniversary. Wish me luck! I’m sure it will all turn out fine because I’m being shown around by Disneyland Paris veterans. What could possibly go wrong?

Where are you going on holiday this year? Anywhere Disney related? I’d love to know! Share you plans in the comments. Also any tips for Disneyland Paris are very welcome! What things do I absolutely have to try and do when I’m there?
