It is no secret that I am a huge fan of the Disney movie: Beauty and the Beast. It’s always been my favourite film alongside Harry Potter. My favourite characters of course: Belle and Hermione. With Emma Watson cast as Belle in the live action Beauty and the Beast, I knew my childhood self was in for a treat. I of course have been day-dreaming of what the film would visually look like for months and am now absolutely excited to the core with thanks to the anticipating trailers that have been recently released. Alongside this, I have been dreaming about what wonders Disney would create for the merchandise. When they released the collection yesterday I of course sprinted to my closest Disney Store and thankfully…was not disappointed.
I already own what seems like a never-ending collection of Disney mugs…especially Belle ones. As soon as I saw this one in the flesh I knew I couldn’t leave it behind. The overall design of the mug is gorgeous and is the same shape as the Art of Belle mug; the gold handle makes it so glamorous and blends with the design of the Beast’s enchanted castle. I prefer this mug so much more than the other one, if you’re a Belle fan you need this mug in your life. I’ll link the mug here.
It is no secret that I am partial to a Disney Store reusable bag and as soon as I saw this I just knew I had to have not one, but two to add to my collection! The picture they decided to use for the main side is absolutely beautiful focusing mainly on Belle but with Beast looming in the distance. I adore this bag so much; I’ll link it here.
The drinks bottle was something that I didn’t intend on picking up until I saw it in the flesh. The overall design of the bottle is beautiful with different moments of Belle on either side and the lid is dark blue with a matching handle. I was so pleased when I learned that the way to drink it is with a straw; my last bottle was a Zootropolis one with a straw and it was so easy to use. I’ll link the bottle here.
As soon as they released the pictures for the ‘pre-shopping event’ online I just knew I had to get my hands on this journal. It’s much larger than I expected (almost A4 size) and is absolutely stunning; I cannot emphasise enough how much I adore this journal. I love it so much I actually never want to write a single word on the beautiful pages that are delicately decorated with the silhouettes of Mrs Potts, Lumiere and Cogsworth. The first page you see is the beautiful Belle and Beast in the ballroom scene surrounded by an array of gold and white roses. It comes with a tassle (so you can keep your place) and has ‘Beauty and the Beast’ engraved on the back cover. If you can get your hands on this journal you must do, its absolutely beautiful and I think its going to be a best seller. I’ll link it here.
Overall I just absolutely adore the colour theme of this collection. I’m so glad they steered away from the traditional ‘yellow’ that we associate Belle with and instead have leaned towards the blue that reminds us of her village girl days. Other pieces of the collection I hope to get my hands on is the pyjama set, the fleece and of course the updated Mrs Potts tea set. Sadly, my local Disney Store didn’t have the pyjamas in my size but I’m hoping they’ll get them back in stock super soon. I wasn’t completely won over by the jumper at first but am now starting to really like it. And of course, hasn’t just about everybody fell in love with the tea set? I hope to maybe treat myself if I get anywhere near a flagship store that sells them!
