In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a big fan of “The Mouse” and although my kids adore Disney, mama has a special place in her heart for the magic as well. Each and every time we visit Walt Disney World, I make my way through the gift shops for both my daughters as well as myself. There are many great finds for adults that are both tasteful and subtle without ever screaming “DISNEY!”
The Dooney & Bourke collection has been on my wish list for quite some time now. This famous designer releases limited bags and leather goods that are inspired by Disney Parks each and every year. The Sketch collection is one of my favorites, but they also have an assortment of other fun designs.
From fashions and jewelry to kitchen goods and home decor, here are 15 adorable and tasteful Disney gifts that should be on your radar for your favourite lady.

When it comes to photography and photo organization, I’m extremely disorganized. My video clips and photos of my kids are all over the place and usually get dumped into iPhoto or folders throughout my desktop. This makes things challenging when I’m trying to create photo books or fun creations for my family. Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been testing out the brand new “Story” app from Disney that has made my life so much easier.
This is a digital storytelling app for iPhone and iPod touch that allows you to transform your photos and video to create beautiful stories that can be saved and shared. It’s genius because it automatically places your photos in order (by time and date) so you don’t have to manually insert each and every one. I took my son out to the park yesterday afternoon and put it into play. Here’s a look. Want to create your own? The Story App officially launched today and is available for free from the App Store http://bit.ly/18slGZY.
Have you been thinking about doing something a little out of the ordinary for Mother’s Day? Flowers and gifts are a lovely thought and oh so welcome, but a day out, that’s what this mama wants. I’ll be out of town this Mother’s Day on a trip (there are plenty of great Mother’s Day packages going on!) but if a getaway isn’t in the cards right now there are still so many ways you can escape for the day.
Last year for Mother’s Day, my husband and our kids took me out for a lazy and relaxing drive before stopping for an impromptu lunch at one of our favourite restaurants. It was such a welcomed surprise and I loved spending time with everyone without having to rush back for XY or Z. Whether you are looking for a day out with the kids, or one on your own, here are 10 day trip ideas that range in price from $0-$200. Affordable, fun and memorable!
Minnie Mouse, Tinker Bell and the princesses have ruled our home for the past 6 years, but with the arrival of my son that quickly changed. Mickey Mouse and all things blue have added such a nice mix to the usual pink. Needless to say, my husband is happy and our home’s color scheme is more varied. Speaking of varied color schemes, have you seen the new Mickey Mouse nursery collection?
If you are a big fan of the Mouse, you will adore this boy themed nursery line from Disney Baby. From a full nursery bedding set and plush organic blankets to lamps and super cute mobiles, this collection has everything you need to transform your baby’s nursery into a mouse haven.
