We’re almost three weeks past Christmas already, but my mind still tends to wander back to Disneyland Paris, where we spent the holidays. I haven’t mentioned much about the trip on here (let’s just forget the fact that I haven’t been showing much activity at all lately) but now’s the moment to catch up a bit!
Let’s cut this short – the trip was absolutely magical! I watched some of my friends perform in the parades, had a little chat with my favorite Princess, got to watch Mickey and Minnie light an enormous Christmas tree, spent three nights in an amazing hotel room (seriously!) and overall I simply had a great time together with my boyfriend. On such a trip you snap the most beautiful pictures and I have been thinking of printing my favorites to showcase them on the wall..
Memories in polaroids
Honestly, what better way to showcase your favorite pictures than in polaroids? You know, those shiny vintage photographs with a white border! I picked 20 of my favorite Disneyland photos (I sneaked in some of our previous Disney trip, too! Couldn’t resist!) and had them printed on glossy polaroid-like photosheets. What I like the most about polaroids is the fact that they look good wherever you put them! They look great in photo albums, in your wallet, on your fridge door or hanging on a thread on the wall. They also do good on Instagram… Just so you know… ;-)
I ordered a ‘Pro set’ from the ‘Vintage prints’ on Polabora. This set comes with 20 high quality glossy polaroids and costs €9,99 (they ship internationally, by the way!). The process of ordering is really easy — you pick a set, upload your favorite photo’s directly from your PC or even import pictures from your social media accounts, and voila! A little tip from me personally is to go with a certain theme. It looks really good if they’re all edited with the same filter. :-)
By the way, if you’re interested in the trip, I’m uploading Disneyland vlogs on my YouTube channel! :) From now on my YouTube channel is going to be my main Disney outlet, instead of just my blog. So I’ll be talking about my audition experiences (hopefully also work experiences soon!) and other Disney-related stuff on there!
How would you showcase your favorite polaroids?
This product was sent to me for free.
You know, this time I’m not even going to mention the fact that I’ve been MIA for too long. Oops, I did it anyway. One word: college (actually I was going to say ‘final year of college and crazy deadlines’, but that’s not one word).
So.. HAPPY 2016 TO ALL OF YOU! I hope you have a lovely year ahead of you full of exciting experiences and good health. I know people say this every year, but this time I’m jumping onto the bandwagon right here — 2016 is going to be MY year! I’ve been waiting for this year for all my life, because for as long as I can remember sixteen has been my lucky number. And little did I know that some major things would actually happen in this particular year! For starters my boyfriend and I can move into our first house this year! After a big delay, we can finally say that the expected completion date is in april, so that’s definitely something to look forward to. And this is also the year I’m graduating college if everything goes according to plan. Freedom! As of that moment I want to try to get into what they call ‘fulltime blogging’, something that I’m dying to start right this second, but unfortunately I’ll have to be patient and wait until summer.
And of course – sorry not sorry for mentioning it again – I’m looking forward to my next Disneyland Paris audition! Hopefully I’ll pass this one again. Because this time I won’t have to turn down a contract to go back to college, like last time. No sir, this time I’ll actually be free to go whenever they need me! Fingers crossed!! I’m also attempting to keep my toes crossed (who can actually do that?!) in hopes of getting a face character contract!!
I’m not really superstitious, but I do have to admit – if this dream of mine comes true this year (along with all the other great events that are happening), it can’t be coincidence.. ‘Sixteen’ would really prove itself to be my lucky number!
What are you looking forward to most in 2016?
PS. Like I said I’m going to be active on this blog and my social media fulltime this summer, but until then I’ll try my best to upload as often as possible! I also have a lot of vlog material from my Disneyland Paris Christmas trip (which was amazing, by the way!), so I’ll be uploading that soon! Please bear with me as I’m trying my best to keep up! :-)
