Disneyland Paris 2012

Posted on

Bonjour!!! That’s probably as far as my French extends to I’m afraid 🙂 this became one of the most annoying things I found about Disneyland Paris…. but obviously being in Paris it was expected of course and there was no way I could afford a trip to Florida at the moment. I don’t want to sound rude about the French in fact I have to hand it to them, we received good service in the hotel and wherever we went in the parks. Anyway it has to be said that I had a fantastic time away and would definitely go back at some point. We  went on most of the rides but missed out some of the smaller ones. I really enjoyed ‘Rock n Roller coaster’, a high-speed coaster that plays Aerosmith songs as you go round, we went on that 5 times. My heart temporarily left my body on the ‘Tower of Terror’, it was that frightening but I managed to get off in one piece in the presence of two very amused friends. The rest of the coasters like ‘Indiana Jones Temple of Doom’, ‘Big Thunder Mountain’ and ‘Crush’s Coaster’ were a little more mild but still lots of fun.

The queues were horrendous… we found ourselves queuing for everything but I expected that too. I’m just glad we didn’t go during peak season. The food was very good but despite saying that the restaurants cater for vegetarians, I was disappointed to find out that they only had one or two vegetarian options on the menu’s, myself and my friend had to have veggie burgers two nights in a row in different restaurants.

The characters are like royalty at Disney, they certainly know how to entertain the children and the adults alike. The parades are nice to watch and the new light show that they have introduced for their 20th anniversary year which included projected images, lasers and fireworks was very impressive.

I took so many photo’s, so obviously I can’t include them all in my blog but I was thinking that I may separate them into groups and post different ones each day so stay tuned 🙂

An Ethical Gift

I must admit, I’ve never stepped foot inside a LUSH store because quite frankly the smell offends my nose. Because of this I never really knew much about them or their products. For Christmas I received a cute set of bath bombs contained within a tin money-box house and enclosed in an attractive bird design wrap which was made using recycled plastic bottles. Inside the tin was 4 different shaped and coloured bath bombs all with their own individual scent which was slightly potent but not at all bad. The set came with a little hand book that explains how to use the bath bombs; some you drop straight into the bath and some you run under the tap. What is good about LUSH’s products is that they are all handmade from fresh organic fruit and vegetables, essential oils and safe synthetics and most importantly they don’t test on animals making it ideal for Vegetarians and vegans.

This morning I decided to try out one of the products; the Cinders -PLU 2911. It’s a mulled wine – scented crackling candy bath ballistic which I placed into the bath like the instructions stated and watched as it fizz, crackle and bob up and down until it completely dissolved and turned the water yellow.

As I climbed into the bath I noticed that the water only had a slight aroma to it  which was a little disappointing considering the ball had quite a strong smell to begin with but that didn’t put me off. The water had no affect on my skin, it didn’t stain or create an allergic reaction; in fact my skin felt smooth upon drying. You can also use your usual shower gels and washes which if also smells sweet can create a nice combination of aromas. I look forward to trying out the others!
