WDAS Life Lessons – Pinocchio

Hello!

It is time for the second life lesson from the Walt Disney Animated Studios and this week’s film is Pinocchio.

As this film centres around a little wooden boy and an anthropomorphic cricket teaching him right and wrong, and also the strength of our own desires, there are a quite a few life lessons to be learnt.

Cosy Autumn Comforts

Besides the torrent of rain we’ve been subjected to recently, I’m so happy that we’re now nearly three weeks into Autumn.

It is my favourite season because despite the weather, it is full of warmth and cosiness.

WDAS Life Lessons – Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Whether you are a fan of Disney or not, you cannot deny that it teaches us a thing or two. It makes us think. It makes us value our choices. It gives us a positivity boost when we are feeling low.

I don’t shy from that. I’m all for the positivity that Disney brings and it is why I turn to Disney when all I want to do is hide from the world.

The Most Recent Films I’ve Watched and Loved!

I’m always one to talk about all the books I’ve read and things I’ve crocheted over the months but I rarely talk about film and tv, which is silly as I have a whole category on this blog dedicated to film and tv.

I think as I rarely bother with the huge programmes or take a trip to the cinema for reasons I’ve explained before, it’s not such a huge deal for me. However, I want to break up the pattern a little bit as everything up to now is very book-orientated and it’s nice to have a change.

Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Books – If I Can’t Love Her.

Hello! Welcome back to Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Books, the series where I match three books to a Disney song. This time I am here with a song recommendation from Fran Laniado – If I Can’t Love Her from the stage adaptation of Beauty and the Beast.

It gives such a great insight into the Beast as a character and how he struggles sharing his inner thoughts.

Five Disney Characters Who Inspire Me

Hello!

Welcome back! I’ve not written a Disney post for a while and it’s nice to finally get back into the rhythm of it because I miss it, and Disney is my comfort blanket.

It’s also the place where I find inspiration and motivation and whilst that comes in many forms, a lot of it does come from the characters and their own stories. Therefore, I want to share with you five characters who inspire me everyday.

Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Books #1: When Will My Life Begin?

Hello!

After due consideration, all my other series have been consigned to A Dreamer’s Library’s archive for now and I’m starting afresh. I still have ‘Showcase’ running which I’ll do another post for at some point but I wanted something new to work on that combines Disney and books and I think I’ve finally found it.

The Second Star To The Right

Hello

It has been a while since I have inducted a song into my blog’s songbook and this one is slightly different because I am combining it with a Language Library post.

I want to translate The Second Star to the Right from Peter Pan. This is probably my favourite song from the film and for such a short song, it evokes so many different feelings and memories of my childhood that I don’t want to forget.
