The Disney Princess Tag

Oh boy!

You can certainly blame Novellette for this post. She posted both posts of her answers to this tag within days of each other earlier this month and I kind of feel in love with the whole thing that I knew I had to do it too! She had some pretty good answers too, so you’ll have to check out her posts too! All right, let’s get this show on the road! Prepare yourselves for the Disney gif overload!

Which princess do you adore the most?

Princess Aurora/Briar Rose is my favorite! There are a lot of things that I loved about that story, she has some Snow White and Cinderlla tendencies like talking to different woodland animals, but never loses the “realism.” I was also surprised that after I watched Malificent it didn’t tainsh my love for all of the characters. I actually liked Elle Fanning playing the live action version of young Aurora! I was very impressed! And nobody could’ve played Malificent as good as Angelina Jolie!

Which princess do you like the least?

I have to say, Ariel has always been my least favorite princess. However, I do love the second The Little Mermaid! Mostly because her daughter Melody just sounded like me as a kid.

One of the things I’ve always been surprised about it, is that Ariel’s story shows she can’t walk on land, whereas kids like me that are stuck on the floor or in their wheelchairs/braces. It has that sort of story line for kids with disabilities saying like “never give up” but even though I’ve figured this out, she’s still not one of my favorites!

Which princess do you relate to the most?

I think I am like both Merida and Pocahontas in different ways. I have sides of me that are like Merida, she’s brave and doesn’t like to be put into a box. She doesn’t want to do what others expect her to do. And then you have Pocahontas where she’s very curious, she sees everything in a different light than others, she appreciates nature and tries to show there’s more than what meets the eye!

Which sidekick do you wish you had?

I’ll be honest, whether or not Mulan belongs in the whole Princess category, I have to say Mushu and Crickey would be my sidekicks. I’ve always loved Mushu and I’ve always heard that crickets were lucky, even now as an adult! I just have a bad problem with killing them! Anyways, I feel like Mushu is like the dragon/mythological fairy godmother–in this case godfather! If it wasn’t for Mushu and Crickey, I fully believe that the whole movie would have been less entertaining for viewers!

Which best friend would you want to hang out with?

I’ve always loved Jacques and Gus-Gus! I actually used to hate Cinderella as a kid, but now that I’m older I feel its the ultimate princess film! I would love to hang out with Gus-Gus though, he’s a goofball and brave mouse! Plus, he loves to eat just like me!

Olaf is another character that I’ve always loved! I remember watching the preview for Frozen and seeing this little snowman with a cute voice! I feel bad for Josh Gad though because every other movie I watch with him in it, I think of Olaf! I think I would be best buds with him.

Which prince would love you?

I’ve always had an animated crush on Prince Eric. I was really weird as a kid, like I would have dreams and he’d just show up! I’ve also secretly wanted to name my future son “Eric” after this character because it was basically the first male I ever fell in love with and of course, that sounds so bad! It’s the truth though! So I’m hoping he’d fall in love with me!

tumblr_mo5xopwbpt1r076c1o1_500

Which parents would raise you?

I don’t know if this counts, but it’s still my answer. Like I said before Sleeping Beauty is my favorite movie, so the fairies in the film would be my “parents” that would raise me. Merryweather and Flauna have always been my favorites! Merryweather’s sassy attitude and Fluana sweet and angelic, plus since she’s the one who gives the gift of song, she just makes me so happy! Flora just irradiated me at times. She reminded me of my own dad!

Which castle do you want to live in?

I’ll be honest, different movies would always inspire me to hopefully one day travel there. The palace in Aladdin has always reminded me of the Tahj Mahaj in India. Even though the whole place in the film is fictional, this would be my castle to live in! The place was made for love, a sultan created it for his wife whom he loved very much and I’ve always loved that devotion and wished for that kind of love throughout my life.

tumblr_n76cn5phsp1tx9vazo1_500

Which town do you wish you lived in?

This was the best gif I could find of Paris, France. I’ve recently discovered that the two most popular locations for most Disney animated films were London and Paris! Very interesting! I’ve always been fascinated by both places because of all the Disney movies, but as the years have passed, Paris is no longer part of my list. However, if I ever got a chance to go I would take it instantly!

tumblr_mzyjplqcsr1t1tmdbo1_500

Which dress do you wish to own?

I love Elsa’s dress! I’ve been super jealous of little girls lately because they get to wear mini versions of this dress. I’ve actually never been really impressed by any other princess dress except for this one!

tumblr_n0jerduhsh1qj4315o1_500tumblr_n7g4elb2qc1rfupdoo1_500

Which voice do you wish you had?

I chose both Adriana Caselotti who voiced Snow White and Mary Costa who voiced Aurora/Briar Rose. The reason is because both ladies were trained opera singers. I’ve always wanted to train myself in their image I guess.

tumblr_n2ooq7zipc1ttw09qo1_500tumblr_mxhapbvdxv1rbm4t1o2_250

Which two princesses would be best friends?

I only think Cinderella and Elsa could be best friends because of the fact that their ball gowns changed by magic! Even though Cinderella didn’t create hers in the same way as Elsa, but it still works!

tumblr_mn515jv1or1spx9gdo1_500tumblr_lqypkpvcnk1qm6oc3o1_500

Which two princesses do you think would hate each other?

I think Mierda and Pocahontas would be enemies, mostly because Pocahontas is very much into the land and nature. She knows everything has a soul and Mierda is like the total opposite of her. If she could, she would go hunting with her father!

tumblr_n6j6ddkkd01tqqihyo1_500tumblr_mdk4notgxn1ro8qpo

Which two sidekicks would make a good duo?

I think Flint and Sebastian would make a good duo! All they try to do is look after their friends! They tend to bang their heads against the palm of their hands most of the time, but they try to direct both Ariel and Pocahontas in the right direction.

tumblr_n25cxp2pnn1tqs1heo1_500tumblr_n2ggbnquar1qbom4so1_500

Which two princes would be best buds?

I’ve managed to notice this after a while! I think Prince Philip and Kristoff would be good friends as they have a special bond with their animals? I don’t know the right word to put there!

tumblr_inline_n96gl0c9x11s93lo1

What scene makes you cry?

I’m not joking, the first time I watched Frozen I bawled like a baby at this scene and the beginning of “Do You Want To Build A Snowman”. Unfortunately, I don’t know the exact reason why I cried so much! Sorry!

tumblr_inline_mzjzntf0rw1qj3ir1

What scene makes you cheer?

I love the last fight scene of Mulan because they see past that she’s a woman and wants to rescue the Emperor and they want to help her out. The scheme works out for them and it motivates me every single time!

tumblr_mc4mpq9c831rncdgao1_500

What scene makes you cringe most?

When I was little, I couldn’t watch the part where Snow White gets hunted through the dark forest. All of those faces in the background use to freak me out!

Another scene is when Frollo goes after Quasi and Esmeralda at the end of Hunchback Of Norte Dame and when he misses his step and he wraps his hands around the arch where water drains out into the ground. Either his hallucinations create the angry, devilish face come alive but that breaks off and both fall into the fire pit below. That scene has always made me cringe mostly because it’s so dark and people can assume that he went to hell for his sins.

tumblr_mu2nuq4n8i1sobyjzo1_500

What story do you wish was your life?

I’m not a very confident person. I seem to be at times, but majority of the time I’m not. Mulan has always been an inspiration to me, the whole story of family, ancestors, and proving people wrong whether you’re a girl or in my case disabled. If you love someone, you want to protect them at all cost and you have to be your own hero sometimes!

tumblr_nr10exnvbe1u9hzkjo1_500

Which movie do you love the most?

I’ve always been very upset that I’m still missing quite a few Disney movies on my DVR. Beauty And The Beast is one of those films. My sister and I share the love of this movie for different reasons. I technically like all of them, except for a few, but that’s normal.

REVIEW | Supergirl

I think I should mention this before we even start this review. I’m going to be VERY honest with this so no if you disagree with me that’s fine, just keep it to yourself.

I’m still slightly confused why I decided to record this Monday night. I hadn’t heard much about it, only that Claire Holt was up for the main role and Jenna Dewan-Tatum was going to play Lois Lane’s sister Lucy Lane on the show. I didn’t think I would watch it after what happened when I watched Man Of Steel for the first time. If you want to know what that’s about just read this. I didn’t have any expectations for it and I decided to look at that as a good thing and see what all the fuss was about and I’m glad I did since that’s what everybody is talking about the day after!

I hope I don’t give too much away, but it’s about a young girl named Kara Zor-El who is a cousin of Kal El, aka Superman. She was sent to look after him just before their home planet was to explode. She has all of the same powers as Superman, but after Krypton was destroyed her shuddle was thrown off course and she was trapped in space. When she did make it back to Earth, the world already knew of Superman and his powers so he sent Kara to live with a foster family. She decided to become a normal person, so she is somebody’s assistant at a big newspaper company. She only breaks her normal life to save her sister Alex and other passengers on board a plane that’s about to crash, and after that everybody finds out they have another superhero on their hands. Not everybody is happy about it of course! I’ve decided to leave it like that, a little cliffhanger!

First thing, the whole storyline isn’t that bad. There were a lot of things in the pilot episode that I liked, but of course I also had a lot that I hated about it too! When I first heard about the show, I thought Supergirl? She’s going to be a teenager, baby sister to Superman. I thought she was going to be a lot younger, around 15 or 16 years old and had a lot of knowledge about Krypton and their families and basically save the world right along Kal, but like always I was wrong! She’s my age and living a normal life. Which is fine, but she’s a 24 year old woman not a girl. What I was looking for were the younger years of when she was busy adjusting to life on Earth not being a protection for baby Kal like she was supposed to, how was family life like after seeing her home being blown up? How did she control her powers? What was it like with her and older sister Alex like, especially when Alex was recruited into that agency? And maybe we’ll see that later on in the season, I doubt it since the story is pretty big without it.

I understand that there are big differences between the superhero films converting into TV shows, most importantly the ways of special effects. I had to readjust to it when Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premiered on ABC (and I know it’s not right to compare Marvel and DC Comics but at some point we all do!) the funny thing was, the special effects used in that show doesn’t necessarily look computer generated, it basically look real in almost every scene. So when I was watching this show, I felt as though it was corny. I’ve seen a lot of shows that use big effects and I have to say this was my least favorite out of every show. Every time they would go to show Supergirl flying and fighting scenes would be WAY too fast and I wasn’t like excited to see her in the whole rescuing frame of mind. It almost went too fast, the whole show and maybe it was because I was watching it through my DVR and I don’t know.

I don’t really have an opinion on the cast except for Laura Benanti as a villain role? Perfect!! I am seriously so stoked to see her as the ultimate evil person to this new superhero. I know a LOT of people watched the first episode and apparently liked it, but I was unimpressed. However I am going to watch the second episode next Monday. I want to see what happens and see if things can get better or not.

Okay, your turn! What do you think of Supergirl?

Is There A Difference?

Untitled

 

Tuesday’s are a day of fun, at least for me they are! I do a lot of different blog chats throughout the week and Tuesday’s are the busiest day of the week because I have three chats going on back-to-back in the afternoon, of course they’re all UK-based chats so it’s evening there for them. My first chat starts at 2pm and my last that I haven’t been joining in the last few weeks starts at 4pm. In between those two, I have my favorite out of three chats that I love the most, the #fblchat (Fashion, Beauty, and Lifestyle Chat)  if you’ve seen me tweeting this hashtag and always wondered why I end with that, now you know! Different bloggers host the chat and come up with the different themes of discussion. Yesterday the topic was about bloggers being influential. I thought this was a good topic to talk about, but by the middle of the chat I was either losing interest or getting tired of sitting up, and I was hardly getting any notifications of people favoriting or retweeting my tweets of their agreement. Which became a good thing as I answered the last question in my personal opinion, is there a difference between being a Blogger or just having a blog? My answer was simply:

“Ooh, I think a “Blogger” is someone who wants to share themselves with the world and is proud of it to talk about it in everyday life.”

After I posted my answer, I began to read others answers and realized that I might’ve been wrong on how I answered it, but then again I thought, “no, there is a difference between the two.” People were saying that if you have a blog, you’re automatically a blogger. I don’t agree with this and instead of explaining my answer on Twitter during the chat, I stayed quiet hearing my thoughts boil up to the top. I knew I had to release it sometime. So here are my thoughts on this subject. There is a difference between the two, being able to call yourself a blogger and having a blog are two completely different things. No matter what anybody says. I stand by my answer and say that I’ve been a blogger for five years (almost six) and have used two different platforms, learned how to do everything on my own and kept at it after going through different things. I never stopped doing it. I talk about it in my everyday life, almost everybody that comes around me gets told different parts of my blog. I am very open with it because it has become part of my life and I cherish it. Not only that I’ve healed myself from different things that I’ve gone through by keeping up with my blog. I honestly don’t like admitting it, but I’ve helped people through my posts. I am very proud of myself and my little blog for doing so much. I feel so blessed to have met other bloggers and enjoy reading all the nice comments I get on different posts. I don’t know what I’d do without my blog, so that’s why I’m in defense mode as you can tell, sorry!

Now on the part about just having a blog, when I think of someone just having a blog and not really doing anything with it, I don’t consider them being a blogger. You don’t have to blog everyday I know that, I understand writer’s block very well trust me. This isn’t about writer’s block here. There is a thin line between having a blog and actually blogging on it. To me, blogging is more about pictures and that goes for all of the different themes you select for your blog, beauty fashion, parenting, etc. Blogging is about pulling somebody into your little world that you’ve created in this 2-5 (or more) paragraph post. You try to make them see and understand your pain, struggles, joy, humor in one single post. That’s why I am not a person who supports this thing of calling people who use Tumblr bloggers. They are NOT bloggers by any means! At least none of which that I’ve seen over the years. Both Tumblr and Pinterest are not the ideal platforms to use to share anything. Yes, a picture can say a million words but it’s also like an abstract painting, not everybody is going to meaning of it if you don’t explain why you’re talking about it. I mean, come on! I’ve had lots of different bloggers agree with me on this before, because if you’re just reposting pictures and calling yourself a blogger, you’re calling us real bloggers a bad name. We work hard to give our readers a glimpse of our loves and everyday life and here you are just liking a picture of somebody else’s work and putting it on your profile. You get excited of how everybody is loving your new post. How is that blogging?

Let me just say to finally end this post for good. I know I am not the most perfect blogger in the world but I do try to be the best person I can be, and I’m only being honest and real with you. You can agree or disagree with me, I really don’t care what you think. I just had some thoughts on the matter that I think need to be considered before I did anything else today. At least now I’ll be able to go about my evening in peace.  So I hope you have a good night and enjoy your Thursday!

Writing Prompt: Alexina Meets Evander

I’ve been thinking about different things and I keep having little “fairy tale” visions in my mind. So I’m going with this for today. This might have a few sections later on if I continue to develop thoughts and story lines about these two characters and era. I hope you think this interesting and hope you enjoy it!

Night and day are united as one, the sun no longer shines outside the clouds as the plague continues to spread throughout the kingdom.
The village outside the palace is dreadfully infected with the disease and all of the staff are not allowed to leave the palace for any reason in case someone were to pass it along to any of us trapped inside.
We are slowly running out of food and since the sickness still affects everybody outside of the castle, we may be resulting in asking for help from other kingdoms.
Father hasn’t written any letters so far asking for more help with the care of our people and we need more food to feed them and ourselves, but my mother has and father wasn’t too thrilled about the fact that a woman wrote to the other kingdoms for their help.
Within a month, the plague still lingers on and we have officially run out of food here in the castle and three different kingdoms deliver their best men, doctors, priests, and food by the dozen for everybody in the kingdom as they said they can’t turn down a lady’s letter.
Father wasn’t pleased that they had brought it up, but inside he did feel grateful.
Since all of these extra people were coming into the palace, my sister and I helped the servants with dressing each room with blankets, towels, and fresh clothes for them.
“How many people do you think will be here with us?” Sloane said, as she was helping me fix one of the beds.
“Mother said probably close to forty people. That is, if the plague doesn’t affect them on their journey here.” I said back to her.
“Alexina, Sloane. They’re here.” Mother came in with three of her ladies in waiting, and two other servants who took over making the rest of the beds.
We grab the sides of our big skirts and follow them down the long hallway to the stairs, we looked down to find close to thirty people in the great room.
All of them kneeling down in front of father, and they stayed there to show their respect for mother, Sloane, and I.
We walked down the stairs and I looked at all of these people, I was expecting more than this, but I felt sad too as that meant the weather took some of their lives.
“Welcome to our home. I know you’ve come a long way and I thank you and my people will also thank you as well. We are in need of your help and we will greatly help you if you need it. Meet my queen, Freya and our daughters Alexina and Sloane.” My father said to all of our visitors, one of the male knights that still kneeled in front of us, had olive skin and dark hair with brown eyes.
He looked distanced but more alive than the rest that kneeled before me.
He didn’t look away from my father’s glaze and I actually wished he would so I could see his whole face and make him feel welcomed here.
“My trustee Nils will show you all to your rooms and then if you will go out to the village and began seeing my people. There will be a safe house for those who leave to do so, as I’m afraid I will not have my wife, daughters, staff and myself infected by the disease outside. Now, good day.” Father said as he concluded his speech.
The young man turned his face down towards the red and gold rug on the floor.
He seemed like a quiet soul, but he seemed kind of adventurous as well.
As father and the leaders of each kingdom walked away to catch up on old times, mother and her ladies in waiting walked towards the servants that came with all of the knights, to help them with whatever they needed, my mother wasn’t like any ordinary queen; she believed in helping any way she saw fit.
Sloane followed suit as I stood along up against the stairs looking straight at the mystery man that got my attention before my father started talking, he finally saw me and gave me a slight smile.
No teeth, but that was enough for now.
The commander got his knights attention by stomping his cane on the floor three times and they all stood up from the ground and turned away to walk up the stairs.
I got out of their way, but just enough that each of them nodded at me and kissed my hand.
When the man grabbed my hand, sparks glowed in his eyes, still looked distant but he was definitely interested now.
“What is your name?” I said in a firm voice but my voice cracked mid-sentence and I felt embarrassed of myself.
“My name is Evander, your majesty. Please to meet you.” He said as he leaned down to kiss my hand and then he gave me another small smile before walking away to the next man came walking behind him.
I kept quiet with him and the rest, they didn’t seem interesting enough for me.

Victoria’s Secret Angel

Up until recently, I have never given myself any thought to being pretty or anything. Unless there was something I was wearing and I just loved how it looked I actually felt pretty. I’m trying to consider all things I hated about myself. Like, beauty and being an inspiration. I’m trying to fix both of these but they’re proving to be harder to get through than accepting. I found this picture on Tumblr, the account is called, “perfect bucket list.” Yes, this is one of the many I reblogged.

It’s going to take me awhile to accept my beauty, but I started thinking about this picture and thought, “You know how many girls don’t like themselves because of all these models?” Every girl in the world wants to be beautiful. To be told, if you are pretty you got the better part of life. That’s not all true, some models strave themselves for these jobs. To be stick thin, because the designers clearly make things in one size. Thank God for the designers who don’t design for just those types of girls. Sometimes I hate fashion because of how they make these girls think about themselves. I’m for sure one of these girls who looked up to these gorgeous women and later hated my body for not being like their’s. It’s one heck of a curse.

I normally don’t watch the VS Fashion Show, for one it’s nothing but tiny girls walking around in lingerie, until they put their second line Pink on. The other day I had decided to watch this video of the opening of this year’s fashion show. It wasn’t what I thought, except the tiny girls. Then that night I got to thinking, I’ve seriously got to stop doing that, especially at night. I dreamt I was a Victoria’s Secret Angel. I was a their first handicapped angel. For me to not be able to get I’m an inspiration to others I dream up this and I get a little bit depressed. I should stop dreaming of things that will never change. Unless the fashion industry has a crisis of not being able to find the “right” girl, they chose somebody like me. Not saying, it would never happen. It’s just going to be someone really gorgeous and confortable in their skin, and the designers to just go for it to make this happen. I don’t know maybe this dream is a sign that maybe it will happen soon.
