Can you guys believe that Wreck It Ralph came out in 2012? I’m still surprised that it came out before Frozen. The movie is so cute, and while we all joked that she might be a princess, this was confirmed in 2018’s Ralph Breaks the Internet. I very much love that Vanellope is completely her own character and her friendship with Ralph is adorable. Wreck … Continue reading Sometimes I Quarantine: with Venellope
Oh how special Brave is to me… premiering three days before my 20th birthday, my mom and I saw this together, she was prepared to fall asleep during it, and by the end, we were both in tears! My mom is the most important person in the world to me and it was so special getting to see this movie with her! We’ve watched it … Continue reading Sometimes I Quarantine: with Merida
In 2009, Tiana premiered as Disney’s first new princess in more than a decade, not since Mulan in 1998 had a princess hit the big screen– and Disney did it in a big way. Not only was Tiana Disney’s first black princess, most modern princess (set in the 1920s)– and let’s be real: most relatable princess — but Princess and the Frog was also Disney’s … Continue reading Sometimes I Quarantine: with Tiana
In case you missed it, I grouped the three Classic Princesses–Snow White, Cinderella, & Aurora– into one post that you can find here! I did a super simple Cinderella DisneyBound, scrubbed the kitchen, and celebrated The Magic Factory as a maker of fine Minnie Ears. Day 15 – Cinderella 2: Dreams Come True Cinderella 2: Dreams Come True Quarantivity – Crochet! So I’m super excited … Continue reading Sometimes I Quarantine: with Cinderella
Mulan premiered in 1998 as Disney’s eighth princess and third multi-cultural princess, and once again: addresses the issues of gender in a way that kids can comprehend! Based on the ballad of Hua Mulan, it is said to be set sometime in the late BCE/early CE (is that still a thing? or have we gone back to calling it BC/AD?). Anyhoo, we sort of ignored … Continue reading Sometimes I Quarantine: with Mulan
Airing in 1995, Pocahontas was Disney’s seventh princess, first that didn’t get a happy ending (oops, spoilers?), and first adventure princess! Premiering at the height of the renaissance of Disney Animation, Pocahontas tackled issues about race and gender in a way that kids could understand. While it didn’t spawn any rides or attractions (how do we not have a “paint with all the colors of the wind” walk-through movie experience or something??), Pocahontas definitely gave us one of the BEST soundtracks and stunning animation (for the time).
Sometimes I Quarantine: With Princesses! This series within a series really started as a way for me to keep my spirits lifted while completely socially distancing. Watching the movies gave us something to do during that afternoon slump, trying to think of an activity to match gave us another (we don’t always have a matching activity, but we’re trying!), taking the movie in to account while deciding what to eat that day helps us think of fun and new ideas for food options, and doing a daily DisneyBound encouraged me to wear more than just PJs while working from home! I highly encourage the last one, it’s been super fun- if you want to see any other DisneyBound outfits that I’ve done, you can find them here!

Pocahontas Quarantivity – Coloring
I don’t have any painting supplies that I wanted to use right now, & Paint by Numbers is a great idea, but I pulled out some coloring books and just colored while watching the movie, it was super relaxing!
Pocahontas In-Park Look
I think every time I do one of these posts, I have a new favorite, but seriously, they are gorgeous & sparkly without being over the top. Swipe to see the details, Pocahontas’ arm band on one ear, necklace on the other, and the leaves blowing in the wind on the center turquoise bow… I love the attention to detail and multiple references as opposed to simple color blocking.

Meeko DisneyBound / Workout Outfit
Whenever I am doing a DisneyBound of an animal or inanimate object (like Mrs. Potts) with a distant top, like the ears on an animal, I love wearing a boyband to simulate the ears, I wear these Bowbands a lot normally, bt they’re especially great for this purpose! I’ve recently joined with Chronicles of a Pixie to get y’all a 10% discount on her awesome products! The bows can slide form one side to the other, headbands area actually comfortable, and the bows can also slide off to wear just the cloth headband by itself, like I did for my Briar Rose DisneyBound. I also loved adding the sunnies with the Meeko Bound for the “mask” around a raccoon’s eyes.

Day 13: Pocahontas 2: Journey to a New World (1998) – coming soon!
We can all agree that this is, hands down, the worst sequel that Disney has ever made. Not only does nobody care about the historical aspects of the movie, but it’s a huge bummer that Pocahontas and John Smith don’t end up together– AGAIN!
