Sometimes I Quarantine: with Rapunzel

There is so much I want to say about Tangled, but oh where to begin…. Premiering in 2010 right on the heels of Princess and the Frog, I feel like Rapunzel kind of overshadowed Tiana. Not only was Rapunzel Disney’s first white princess since Belle (Belle-1991; Jasmine-1992; Pocahontas-1995; Mulan-1998; Tiana-2009), but Tiana was also Disney’s first princess in the new animation style, Tangled’s animation style … Continue reading Sometimes I Quarantine: with Rapunzel

Sometimes I Quarantine: with Beauty & the Beast

As Disney’s fifth princess, Belle hit the big screen with new animation technology, bold classic colors, and a fierce princess. Somewhere along the way, Disney must have realized that the original film is a bit Stockholm-syndrome-y because they produced two sequels that show events throughout Belle’s kdinapped time and make their relationship seem more genuine. I will always love Beauty & the Beast and the 2017 live-action remake with Emma Watson was stunning!

Belle was my favorite princess until the modern princesses come out. It premiered a year before I was born, and my second birthday part was Belle-themed, my mom even made a Belle Birthday Cake!

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!

Day 5: Beauty and the Beast (1991)

Beauty & the Beast Food & Bev

I had so much tea while watching the Beauty & the Beast movies! We also ate French-feeling food, we had duck breast with cherry reduction, arugula salad with homemade Caesar dressing, duck fat potatoes, & Brussels sprouts. If anyone is interested in recipes for any of the food we’re cooking, comment on the post here, shoot me a message at @sometimesivacay, or send us an email at!

Beauty and the Beast: Enchanted Christmas : Quarantivity – Puzzle!

We do so many puzzles and we’re trying to do them with the matching movies, but they’re quite big, and to make them take longer, we don’t look at the box! While I picked this one up from Shop Disney Parks, you can find the same one here on Amazon!

Beauty & the Beast Quarantivity – Nail Art!

Beauty & the Beast: Belle’s Magic World Outfits

I’ve loved developing a routine throughout this quarantine- I get up around 6, I read, watch TV, work on the blog, and have a cup of coffee (and a cup of tea), around 7:30 Kyle & I go on a 4+ mile walk, then we get back and work, we usually have our own lunches but together while watching our daily Disney movie, then Kyle goes to the office, I do some more work, some kind of exercise (yoga/pilates/Just Dance), Kyle usually gets home between 5-6 and then we have an early dinner!

Belle’s Magic Words Look

Once Upon a Tee Shirt makes the softest shirts! I love Sarah’s doodles and have never been disappointed. Another thing I’ve loved about this series is that it’s put me into a routine!

Sometimes I Quarantine: Classic Princesses

A Snow White DisneyBound is one of the easiest ones you can do! yellow bottoms and a royal blue top, pair it with a red lip and you’ve bounded!

So I decided to watch each Disney Princess movie (even if it’s just in the background) in order of release date, and to pair that movie with a DisneyBound, activity (or a quarantivity), treat, and/or drink! Keep in mind that while going through these, I didn’t buy any of these pieces specifically for these outfits, they’re just what I had in my closet! While being on quarantine, I’m not letting myself go out to shop, but I will let myself do a little online shopping (however, these shipping dates are getting delayed, so I may be adding some items that were bought for Bound, but the Bounds below are all made from items I already owned)!

To see all 3 of my Classic Princess DisneyBounds, check out this Instagram Post, and if you want to see any other DisneyBound outfits that I’ve done, you can find them here!

Day 1: Snow White (1937)

Snow White: Quarantivity

Trading out your wardrobe or doing some cleaning is an insanely good Quarantivity!

Snow White makes me think of hard work and house cleaning! So today, I traded out my fall/winter clothes for my spring/summer clothes and did a deep clean of my closet! We also went through our pantry and front entry closet to reorganize both! It was super productive, and also took like 5 hours, so a great time-burner for Stay Home days!

Snow White: Food & Bev– I didn’t make any specific snacks for Snow White… but I did snack on an apple, that counts, right??

Day 2: Cinderella (1950)

Cinderella Quarantivity: Kitchen Cleaning!

Cleaning was the BEST quarantivity, it felt so productive and I got to really deep clean.
It was super simple, but I seriously jumped right in to the cleaning!

Cinderella Food & Bev– we also didn’t make anything special for Cinderella- that’s not to say that we won’t in the future. I would recommend something with pumpkin.

Day 3: Sleeping Beauty (1959)

Sleeping Beauty: Quarantivity
Exercise & Nap

I loved my themed workout outfit, complete with Chronicles of a Pixie Pink BowBand. Lilly Pulitzer pink zip-up Luxletic jacket, Fabletics cropped legging, and even matching ShopDisney Maleficent Mug!

Sleeping Beauty Food & Bev– again, too soon in the process to start planning our foods around the movies, we’ll get there someday. I think we might try to come up with an actually well-balanced cocktail for each princess!
