What’s Hot In Disney Style Now

Mickey Mouse Glasses Hat Walt Disney World

Walking around Walt Disney World, you’re guaranteed to see hundreds of people wearing Disney clothing and accessories. Some of it’s from the Disney Store back home, some of it they just picked up at the theme park, and some of it they custom ordered so their group can match while on vacation.

From sneakers to t-shirts, I’ve been wearing Disney clothes for over 25 years. Over time, I’ve worn more of it at home in private, but I want that to change. Being a Disney fangirl is nothing to be ashamed of.

Like I said, I can’t resist walking into The Disney Store when I’m nearby. I’ve bought Disney things all over Canada and the United States, and I wouldn’t be surprised if I pick up something Disney related once I explore other countries.

When I went to New York last year, I made my first purchase of the trip at the Disney Store in Times Square. I love that store because there’s a ton of special products with a New York theme that you won’t find elsewhere. I picked up a black graphic t-shirt with mouse ears filled with icons of the city, such as Times Square, Central Park and the Empire State Building. It features Minnie Mouse dressed up as the Statue of Liberty too!

In Orlando this month, I picked up 2 accessories: silver sequin Minnie Mouse ears and a printed scarf.

25+ Years Of Fandom: A Millennial Retrospective

Sarah Prince Toy Story Buzz Lightyear and Woody

As I get ready to go to Disney World, I’ve been thinking about my path to becoming a professional fangirl. I’ve gone to the most meet and greets in Disney theme parks, so I have no doubt that’s where my interest in posing with famous characters and people came from. It goes back for so many years that my first meet and greets were not captured on a digital camera. After all, it was the early 90s!

I’ve also spent more than a year talking to super fans of Kim Kardashian and more recently, Taylor Swift, daily. This made me want to reflect on my personal history of relationships with pop culture icons. Let’s go back, shall we?

Barney

Before I built a personal brand as the girl in the red jeans, I loved all things purple. Between the clothes, videos and stuffed animals, I basically collected Barney products. 

In middle school, I took on a new Barney project: re-selling new VHS tapes. I bought them at a phenomenal bargain price and sold them on sites likes Amazon and eBay. It was a challenging time to do this because VHS tapes were being phased out. I’m not sure how much $$$ I made, but it was a good way to learn about e-commerce.

National Popcorn Day (CNW Group/Cineplex)

I can’t resist a good national ______ day AKA social media holiday, but it’s even better when one of my favourite brands gets involved. Friday is National Popcorn Day and Cineplex is giving away free popcorn to celebrate!

The promotion is available to SCENE members and if you haven’t signed up yet, then it’s long overdue. I believe I forgot to mention that I saw The Post for $0 because I redeemed 1,000 SCENE points. I guess you could say I’m all about those loyalty cards.

We Need More Role Models Like Kay Graham From The Post

Awards season starts tonight and everyone is obsessed with Meryl Streep, so of course I had to see The Post. I live for watching movies about the media industry! Over the break, I finally saw State of Play. I also loved similar movies based on real stories, especially Obit (The New York Times) and Spotlight (The Boston Globe). In fact, one of my top professional highlights of 2017 was writing a tweet that was noticed by Kim Kardashian and then featured on the Boston Globe’s website.

The Post is about how Meryl Streep’s character Kay Graham, the first female newspaper publisher in America, handled the decision making process when her team at The Washington Post had the opportunity to publish the Pentagon Papers.

These papers were key because as one character points out, the U.S. government “knew we couldn’t win and still sent boys to die.” The movie explains how the classified documents went public while presenting the workplace drama that transpired at The Washington Post, as well as The New York Times and The White House.

If you’re passionate about politics and journalism, then this is a movie to strongly consider seeing.

Concert Review: Barenaked Ladies

Hot On The Street Barenaked Ladies December 2017 (3)

5 years ago, I went to see Barenaked Ladies perform in London and I commented that it wasn’t as good as the concert I remembered in Toronto at the Air Canada Centre.

Walking into Massey Hall last night, I wondered if my claim that it’s better to see them in Toronto would be true and Saturday’s show proved that I was right. I loved everything about it, except for the encore because they played 2 covers I didn’t enjoy.
