Pongo 101 Dalmatians

101 Dalmatians, One Dalmatian Disneybound

After dipping my toes into my first proper Disneybound a few months ago, I’m back with an all-new 101 Dalmatians-inspired outfit! Guys, 101 Dalmatians was my JAM when I was a little kid. It came out over two decades before I was born, but I didn’t care. Ariel and Belle were great and all, but they couldn’t compete with 101 DOGS. In the immortal words of Karen Cushman: I myself like dogs better. I still remember the thrill when my uncle gave me a Dalmatians-themed sleeping bag for my birthday one year, plus I had the Pongo and Perdita...

Is Disney + Colourpop Only Good For The Packaging? An Investigation

This is not a review of Colourpop Disney cosmetics so much as it is, shall we say, a revue of them. I show them to you so that we might ooh and ah at their splendor. I’ll offer my thoughts, of course, but I’m a mere makeup tyro. In it for some pretty colors, fun names, and SUPER cute packaging? Let’s go! I’ve dabbled in Disney makeup before, but never to this extent. See, Colourpop offered a really great sale price over Memorial Day weekend, and I got overexcited. Behold my bounty! Ready for the super fun part? We’ve...

In Which Jenn Simply Must Dress Up For Walt Disney World

I haven’t built up to it as much as I usually do, but it’s true – I’m going to Walt Disney World in the beginning of May! It’s been a nail-biter, what with COVID and vaccines and race cancellations, but I can finally say I’m going home. And you know me, Disney Dandy that I am: I simply cannot go to WDW without blabbing to anyone and everyone about what I plan to wear. If the clothes themselves aren’t enough to grab your attention, perhaps my experimental attempt at a new photo format will interest you? Hit it! So here’s...

In Which Jenn Is More Than What She Has Become

I need to look inside myself, I guess. It’s one of the best parts of the whole Lion King movie, no? When Simba’s laying there looking up at the stars and Mufasa’s ghost shows up and yells at him. Okay, well, maybe not when I describe it like that, but you know the bit I mean. I’ve always found the moment strangely moving, although I’ve never been the king of anything. More just the call to be… I don’t know, true to yourself, I guess? I was trying to think of a less cheesy way to describe it, but...

In Which Jenn Shares Her Long Run Disney Parks Playlist

Pray for me now and in the hour of my 17 mile training run. I will appreciate those prayers when the time comes (tomorrow), but as they say: the Lord helps those who help themselves. In addition to prayers, I shall try to make my long run as painless minimally painful as possible with the help of such items as KT Tape, mocha Clif Shots, a spare water bottle, and, of course, music. I will start out with my usuals from Amazon Music (Aerosmith!) or my own personal iTunes stash (J. Roddy/Floggy Molly/Jukebox the Ghost), for at the absolute...

Happy Friday: “You Can’t Cry Over Mufasa’s Death & Then Bust A Cap”

Fun fact about me: I love standup comedy! If I’m surfing Netflix, the first place I’ll look is the standup category. That or the horror section. I’m a complicated person. Anyway – a couple weeks ago I happened upon this guy Jordan Conley, who himself happened to mention Disney in his set. This in of itself is not a huge surprise – these people are in entertainment so it comes up now and again – but his take on a Disney gang really did it for me. He and his space rangers are about to knock you to infinity...

In Which Jenn Has A Disney Sing Along En Español

Let’s get down to business – or, as they say in Spanish, hombres de acción: This means “men of action,” and that’s my segue into today’s topic, which is: my New Year’s resolutions. Duh. Much like deciding what to give up for Lent, I like to make my New Year’s resolutions very doable. For this year, my primary resolution is to watch a maximum amount of Disney movies in Spanish. Disney+ offers language tracks and subtitles for pretty much all their animated movies in both European AND Latino Spanish, and since I already know the context of the dialogue in...

In Which Timehop Throws Shade At Disney???

Holy smoke Rocky, guys, I know I just posted, but I saw the FUNNIEST thing in my Timehop yesterday and I had to share! You guys know Timehop, right? The app that shows you all the stuff you posted on this day on your various social medias and that stuff? In addition to populating with your own on-this-day photos and tidbits, it also sometimes shows some historic events and such that occurred on that day too. Various Disney park openings and movie debuts have sometimes been included as the day’s fun fact, because, I always assumed, many of Disney’s accomplishments...

In Which Jenn Thinks The Mulan Remake Isn’t

Okay, I’ve taken some time to think about it, and I believe I’m ready to weigh in on this whole Mulan remake controversy.* Basically: yes, I have a problem with it. No, it’s not exactly what you think. * Because you’ve doubtless all been waiting to hear what an obscure white girl blogger has to say on the matter. So if you don’t know (but you’re reading this blog then you totally do, but all the same) Disney’s live action Mulan remake has met with some mixed reactions in the fandom. As details have been slowly released, the negative camp has...
