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
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!
Day 8: Pocahontas (1995)
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!

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)!
Day 1: Snow White (1937)
Snow White: 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??
