Winter Room Decor!

Hey guys! Winter is almost over, thank Mother Nature for that! Then I realized that i haven’t done a seasonal room decor post yet. So, for the last little bit of winter, and of course next year! On a side note, a great movie to watch over March Break is “Non-Stop”, which is a Liam Neeson psych thriller about an  Air Marshall who gets cryptic messages from someone on the plane. Its really good and you would never expect the ending.

1.Hot Cocoa Mug Desk Organizer

Do you have a messy desk? Do you need somewhere to put your candy? If so, this DIY is perfect for you!

You will need a tin can or other container, duct tape and plain computer paper.

Step One. Cover your container in duct tape. If you have a solid color duct tape, you can draw a decal on it. I decided to draw in the Harry Potter glasses and lightning bolt scar. Cut a circle out of your computer paper. Glue to the bottom of your tin can.

Step Two. Cut a strip of paper. Curl so that it looks like the handle on a mug. Glue to the side.

2.Olaf Wall Canvas

Contrary to the name, this is not really a canvas, but paper glued onto cardboard.

You will need a piece of cardboard and a printout of Olaf. I keep this up year round!

The Only Step. Print off your Olaf picture. I stretched mine to the margins in Word so that i had some white to fold over the sides. Cut your cardboard to fit the photo. Glue the picture down and fold the white over the sides to finish.

3. Hot Cocoa Sign

This is probably the simplest DIY in this post.

All you need is three paint markers and a piece of paper

The Only Step. Use one paint marker to make the border. Use another to write “Hot Cocoa, Marshmallows and Warm Hugs”. On either side of the “and”, use your last paint marker to draw little arrows to finish.

4. Henna Fan

This is another really simple DIY, and you can use it in just about any season. It is really relaxing to draw and i have so many of them!

You will need paper and a black marker

The Only Step. Turn your paper over to the corner. Make a black circle and start doodling outwards. To draw a henna pattern (or Mandala as they are commonly called), just try and make intricate but simple petal shapes or triangles and such and let the relaxation guide you.

Disney Princesses who Should Have their Movies Made Live-Action + Fantasy Casting

“Cinderella”, “Beauty and the Beast”, “Mulan”. What do these films have in common? They were all animated classics before they became live-action. I have consulted my list of Disney Classics and decided that more of them should become live-action and i know just who should be in them! Let me know in the comments which princesses you think should be live-action and your casting thoughts!

aladdin

1. Aladdin

Okay, a live-action “Aladdin” would be AWESOME. With flying carpets, Agrabah in prominence and the best monkey ever. #abu! Anyways, back to casting. Here are my picks!

lesley-ann-brandtfady-elsayed

Lesley Ann Brandt   was featured prominently on the first season of “The Librarians” as Lammia, the second in command  for the Serpent Brotherhood, villain of the first season. She has also been on “Lucifer”. She has South-American roots and is based out of New Zealand. She seems like the perfect pick for Princess Jasmine.

Fady Elsayed  starred as Ram Singh on the first, and possibly only season of BBC’s “Doctor Who” Spin-Off, “Class”. Ram is a football (soccer in England) star who needs to balance the death of his first girlfriend, losing his leg to a shadow beast and meeting new girlfriend April McLean. Oh yeah, he and his friends also need to save the school. He would be an Aladdin to die for.

2. Snow White and the Seven Dwarves

Snow White was the emblem of my childhood. Coming close next to “Tangled”, this was one of my most watched. I always loved how she could talk to the woodland creatures! Here are my casting pics!

natalia-dyertom-felton

Natalia Dyer  is the genius behind Nancy Wheeler on the Netflix original “Stranger Things” which is about four 12 year old boys who are shocked when Will Byers, one of their little clique of four vanishes into thin air. The series is set in November of 1983, which explains the hair. The 19 year old from Nashville attended NYU. She was also on something called “I Believe in Unicorns”. but i have no idea what that is. It is my personal opinion that she would be an amazing Snow White. Oh and yeah, there have been rumors that she is dating costar Charlie Heaton, who played Jonathan Byers. Please let this be true!

Tom Felton  is best known for his role as Draco Malfoy on “Harry Potter”. He wasted his talents on that idiot, that’s for sure. No offense to Draco or anything! Anyway, he has also appeared as a CIA Agent on CTV’s “The Flash”. Now, is it just me or is this guy perfect to be Snow’s Prince? Sorry, i forgot the Prince’s name!

3.Sleeping Beauty

Where do i begin with this movie? My mother used it as a lesson for me: be nice to people or an evil fairy will come and curse your kid. We need an amazing cast with Angelina Jolie back as Malificent. She was so good in “Malifecent”

evanna-lynchjack-p-shepard

Evanna Lynch was born in Ireland. She played Luna Lovegood in “Harry Potter”‘s 5-8. She has also been on “GBF”, which i personally have not seen. She would be a really good Aurora in this movie. BTWs, she broke up with Robbie Jarvis.

Jack P Shepherd is a British actor known for his role as the troubled teen to early 20’s adult, David Platt on iconic British soap opera “Coronation Street”. He hinted in an interview that David may be remarrying after the tragic death of his wife Kylie at the hands of Clayton Hibbs. This guy would be the perfect Prince Phillip!

littlemermaid

4.The Little Mermaid

This movie made me want to become a mermaid. I would spend days wearing my Ariel costume and singing “Under the Sea”. Hahaha. Good times.

lindy-booth2charlie-heaton

Lindy Booth was born in Oakville, Ontario. She played Claudia on “Relic Hunter as her very first acting role (Which she never thought she would get) which she dyed her hair blonde for. However, she is most known for her role on “The Librarians” as Cassandra Cillian. She would be the best Princess Ariel ever.

Charlie Heaton is the guy who played the amazing Jonathan Byers on “Stranger Things”, the Netflix exclusive. As stated when i was talking about Natalia Dyer, he might be dating her and i hope its true. Now, this guy here is the perfect Prince Eric!

Bonus Material

Today’s bonus material is fantasy-casting for 2018’s “Mulan” live-action. Here are my casting picks!

lucy-liujohn-harlan-kim

Lucy Liu is a Chinese-American who starred as Joan Watson on “Elementary”, where she was no damsel in distress. Same goes for when she played Viper on “Kung Fu Panda”. She is an excellent choice for Fa Mulan.

John Harlan Kim is a Korean-Australian who stole everybody’s hearts as try-hard, super-dreamy master thief, Ezekiel Jones on “The Librarians”. He turned 24 on January 10th, 2017. He is soooooo super-dreamy and i could make an entire blog post about that, but i won’t for obvious reasons. He currently lives in Australia, but is incredibly busy travelling. This guy = most dreamy Li Shang  EVER!

Okay, thank you for reading my blog post! I hope you agree with my casting choices and let me know in the comments with your opinions. Remember to press the follow button on the homepage and i will post again soon!
