I've seen this tag going around on YouTube and I love it. I'm not pregnant and I don't plan to have children any time soon. I just thought this was a fun tag and it's been interesting watching YouTubers and reading other bloggers opinions.

Girls Names

Addison - I do really love this name and I like the shortened version "Addie". I just wouldn't use this name as it doesn't go with other names I'd like to use when I have children.
Winter - This is such a pretty name but I just see a lot of people using month or season names for their children and I think it's quite hard to pair with a middle and surname. 
James - I've seen a lot of predominantly boy names being used for girls and I think James is so pretty. I wouldn't use it as I have a boys name I'd like to use and James just doesn't fit with it
Harlow - This sounds so pretty and again it's a gender neutral name. There isn't a specific reason I wouldn't use this name, but there are names I love more and again it's trying to get the name to go with other children's names, middle and surnames.
Elodie - This is probably my favourite name out of the ones here. I wouldn't use this name as I don't like the idea of shortening it. With a lot of names I don't mind shortened versions but with this it's just so old fashioned and pretty that in my opinion it needs to be said fully.

Boys Names

Octavius - I absolutely adore this name for a boy but I think it is just a tad too old fashioned for my generation. It may be that when I come to have kids that old fashioned names are used more. For now though I just don't see a child with that name having the best school years.
Noah - Gorgeous name I just see it everywhere and I know a few people who love the name for their future kids so I wouldn't use it.
Hamilton - I love last names as boys names and this may still make its way into my top names for boys. I just think it won't fit with the other names and middles names I've picked for when I have children.
Demetri - I wouldn't use this name because it makes me think of the film Anastasia every single time. I also think it's another name that I would find hard to pair with a middle name.
Hunter - Love this name the only reason I wouldn't use it is because I have a friend who called her little boy Hunter. When she said it as an option I thought it's so lovely and suits her little boy to a tee. 

What baby names do you love but wouldn't use?

After doing my 90's Tag post I found loads more across Blogger and YouTube that I wanted to do. It got me thinking that it'd be a great chance to reflect myself more in my blog and give new readers a chance to know me whilst loving what I post. It'd also be lovely to see more people do them too.

It's no secret that I am a huge Disney fan so it was a no brainer that I would end up doing this tag!

1. Favourite Character?
I have so many favourite characters but I always go back to Thumper. 
Just look how adorable he is.

2. Favourite Princess?
I honestly love them all, there is nothing I love more than putting on a Disney Princess film but if I had to chose...I'd probably say Tiana. She's just so hardworking, has a lot of ambition and she's full of sass.

3. Favourite Prince?
Prince Philip. Although all the Disney Prince's either battle the villain or go through hell (literally in Hercules case!) to get their princess this one battled a dragon. I just find it so medieval fairy tale picture perfect.

4. Favourite Sidekick?
I love Gurgi, Jaq & Gus Gus, Archimedes and The Genie along with so many more! This was really difficult in a way because I wouldn't say this character was a sidekick anymore with all the solo movies but I'd say my favourite was Tinkerbell. She's so pretty, has a little bit of an attitude but is so protective.

5. Favourite Villain?
Hands down Dr Facilier. I do have soft spots for other Disney Villains but I love the whole Witch Doctor / Halloween feel to him. I also think he has one of the best styles of music across the Disney repertoire. 

6. Favourite Original Character? (Mickey, Minnie....etc)
It's got to be Mickey & Minnie. They are the staple of Disney and you just can't pick one or the other as they're a pair.

7. Favourite Love Song?
I very nearly said my favourite would be A Tale As Old As Time but every time I watch Tangled and hear I See The Lights I can't help but fall in love with the song. I wouldn't say it was Disney's most stand out love song but I love how it makes them both realise what love is to them and each other. 

8. Favourite Song?
Again it was hard to pick a favourite song but I sing I Won't Say I'm In Love all the time (The Hercules soundtrack is probably one of my favourites!).

9. Favourite Villain Song?
I think a lot of people forget that The Nightmare Before Christmas is a Disney film and it was a toss up between Kidnap The Sandy Claws and Oogie Boogie's Song but seeing as Oogie Boogie is more of a villain in the film I'd say that his song was more appropriate. 

10. Least Favourite Song?
I Will Go Sailing No More from Toy Story. Firstly the singer kinda mumbles the words as he sings, I understand it's to give a sad effect but you can't make out some of the lyrics. Secondly I don't understand why they'd use the metaphoric lyrics of not going sailing when Buzz Lightyear fly's. It's just a confusing song to me.

11. Favourite Kiss?
Miss Bunny & Thumper! Just look how cute!

12. First Movie I Saw?
I believe the first Disney movie I saw was Winnie the Pooh I can remember having them on video before any other Disney Film.

13. Favourite Classic Movie?
The Black Cauldron hands down. I freaking love this movie and it's so underrated. When I discuss Disney Movies with friends or just in general with fellow Disney Lovers a lot of people still haven't seen it as from the offset it would be quite scary to a child. If you haven't yet I'd say you'd have to watch it!

14. Song That Always Gets Stuck In Your Head?
Recently it has been How Far I'll Go from Moana. It is a great soundtrack and I keep getting the song stuck in my head, funnily enough when I'm stressed.

15. Favourite Prequel/Sequel?
There are so many good ones, but I would have to say Monsters University. I could watch it again and again, it's so funny a great prequel story and I think the characters are brilliant.

16. Movie That Makes You Laugh?
Emperors New Groove! It's so well written really funny and witty. It's got so many one liners and catch phrases that I remember using as a kid.

17. Movie That Makes You Cry?
I cry at everything, especially a Disney movie but I think everyone will agree that UP! will make you ball in the first 5 minutes.

18. Saddest Scene?
Apart from Up! I'd say the scene where Lilo tries to save Stitch in Lilo & Stitch 2. It brings back every memory of a pet you've lost. 

19. Saddest Death?
It's got to be Mufasa in The Lion King. I think again that is something a lot of people will agree on and it just pulls at your heartstrings. Bambi is another one that comes to mind and I think what makes them so sad is the child's voice asking for their parent.

20. Favourite Quote?
There are a couple that I love that are uplifting and positive  but i think Walt Disney says it best.

I'd love to see what your answers would be ^.^ Comment them below or let me know about your Tag post on Twitter or Instagram.

Being born in 1992 I had to do this tag. The 90's for me is pure nostalgia and I actually found this tag quite tough as I had so many favourites (I was quite an indecisive kid!).

1. Favourite TV Show?
I have a lot of favourites but the show I watched again and again and I'd get up at 7:00am in the morning for was Sailor Moon. 

2. Favourite 90’s song?

Wannabe by The Spice Girls, 100% the best song to get you in a good mood or to workout to. 

3. Favourite Commercial/Advertisement?

I can't remember that many adverts from the 90's so I wouldn't say I have a favourite. But every Christmas I loved the Toys R Us advert and the McCain's Daddy or Chips advert and the Fairy Liquid ones would make me giggle.

4. Favourite Music Artist?

Spice Girls! I mean who wasn't a Spice Girls fan growing up in the 90's!? 

5. Did you collect anything back then and what did you collect?

Like every child at School I collected Pokemon Cards. That's the only thing I can remember religiously collecting with pocket money or being brought them as treats from parents and grandparents. 

6. How many Tamagotchi’s did you go through?

I think I only had one, I was quite young and I remember it died quite early on and I couldn't work the buttons well.

7. Favourite Video Game & Console?

I loved the Sega Console and my favourite game was Castle Of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse.

8. Favourite Cereal/Cereal Free Toy?

Nesquick & Pokemon Cereal but I don't remember ever getting a toy in them. My younger brother tended to get the toys out of cereals.

9. Who was your 90’s Crush Growing Up?

I only had 8 years in the 90's but I remember having a crush on Ben and Christian from A1. Looking back I was influenced by my older cousins and A1 was their favourite band.

10. What was your Favourite 90's Disney channel movie?
It would be a toss up between Cadet Kelly and Halloween town.

11. Favourite Channel? (Disney, Nick or Cartoon Network)

Disney definitely! It had such an amazing mix or TV shows and movies. I always wanted to do the wand drawing thing they did in the adverts.

12. Weirdest Fashion Trend?

The thin eyebrows! I think a lot of people have learnt from that trend but I remember having the thinnest eyebrows ever trying to emulate the celebrities I'd seen growing up.

13. What were your favourite Toys would you play with?

I had a baby doll I loved it so much! It was hard for my parents to get hold of it one Christmas so I remember being so happy. I had a buggy for it and loads of clothing and accessories. I also religiously played with Sky Dancers and collected China Dolls.

14. Favourite McDonald’s Happy Meal Toys?

Every time a Disney film was released McDonald's would have toys of the characters and I remember having ones from Pocahontas and Mulan and loving them.  

15. What was your favourite thing from the 90’s that’s no longer available today?

Lisa Frank Stationary. I had so many notebooks, folders and stickers from her ranges. Although it is still around today it isn't available like it use to be. I remember Woolworth's and WHSmith stocked it every year for Back To School. 

What do you remember from the 90's? Is there anything here you loved just as much?

We're just into the start of September and companies have already started releasing their Advent Calendars! 
I was on the fence about posting them so early and I'd like to focus on Halloween before posting Christmas content. So this November I will be doing #CalendarCountdown again. 

Last year may of stressed me but I am more determined to give it my all! 
I will be posting 3 or more Advent Breakdowns a day, covering Beauty, Toys, Alcohol and even Pets! 

If there are any calendars you have in mind leave a comment below. If you are a company that have released their own this year and would like to send me any information or promo images please see my Contact Me page on the top.

I hope this is something that interests you and you enjoy reading along over the next few months as we move from Halloween to Christmas!

As always, thanks for reading...
