“May The Fourth Be With You” Bullet Journal Flipthrough

Ever since I started creating my 2021 bullet journal I’ve been wanting to be more nerdy with it. I’ve done episode reviews with anime and did a Beauty and the Beast themed spread back in March. Now we have entered May, I knew exactly what theme I was going to do: Star Wars!!

Today is Star Wars Day so May the Fourth Be With You, fellow Jedi!!

I’m hopeless when it comes to drawing/doodling so excuse the horrendous attempts at Chewbacca and BB-8! I couldn’t do this kind of spread without including a few little doodles. You can probably tell in the first picture that I don’t use anything to draw circles so my ferris wheel looks like a deformed orange but it still looks cute! This month’s quote and design was inspired by Julietta at thatsmybujoaccount. The only difference is that I added BB-8!

Star Wars

Every time I see a ferris wheel, it instantly makes me think of the fair scene in Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens! If you’ve read the book or seen the film, then you will know exactly what I’m talking about!

I chose this design and quote because life is definitely a crazy ride. Sometimes it’s a rollercoaster that takes you on massive highs and intense lows. Other times you can just relax and enjoy the ride! I’m still stuck on the rollercoaster but hopefully I’ll find myself on the ferris wheel by the end of the year. I mean…I’m not getting younger!

While my monthly overview isn’t the most gorgeous thing to look at, I think it’s a really nice layout. I wanted to do something a little different and jotted down the days of the week and did black and white numbers. This seems like it will be much easier to read and less of a chore to figure out when my brain is broke.

Of course I added a teeny light-saber as a header and doodles of R2-D2, Chewbacca and BB-8 on the side. Poor BB-8 looks like he’s had a rough night but I tried!

Star Wars Mood Tracker

You guys know by now that I love a good ol’ mood tracker. It helps that I need to keep track of it since it’s crazy. Look at how the start of May has gone so far. Got to love mental health taking charge. Meeeeh. Ah well, I thought I’d try and cheer myself up by having light-sabers to keep track of what my mood is doing. Oh and I had to have The Child going after a butterfly to make me smile.

I love how the light-sabers look and you can’t go wrong with a rainbow Star Wars page!

To celebrate May the Fourth I’ve been living my best fan life and watching the films in order. I’ve been meaning to do it for years but now I have an excuse and time to kill. Not only have I got films to watch, there are even TV shows. You have The Mandalorian, Star Wars: Rebels, Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Resistance! So much content for fans and Disney+ is just making my life so much easier!

Star Wars Memories

On the other pages that I haven’t shown are my blog schedule, anime reviews and that’s it. It always depends on what happens on the day whether I make a page about it. Last month was a lot of new pages because stuff happened! It’s amazing how creative I can be when I want to be.

Let’s see whether Star Wars continues to inspire me to make pages for May! Hopefully I at least learn how to make a better circle. Haha!

Are you a Star Wars fan? How have you been celebrating the day?

New In Disney | Spring/Summer 2021

Ooof, can you believe that it’s been eight months since I last wrote a ‘New in Fandom‘ post? I guess our long-overdue guest kept me from fangirling as much as I had prior! You might notice that this post is focused on one fandom in particular: Disney! I’ve been wanting to check what is new in Disney products for so long and I finally allowed myself to look around different sites to see what’s available right now and in the future.

There is so much and it makes me wish I was rich enough to buy all of the stuff that’s out there.

From Funko Pops to pins to clothes and even the odd doll, it has never been a better time to be a grown-up Disney fan. Hopefully you’ll get an idea of what’s out there from this post. Alright, let’s get into what exactly is new in
Disney.

New In Disney

Lilo with Pudge (£9.99) | Marvel’s Wandavision Collector’s Special (£12.99) | Lilo with Scrump (£9.99) |
Loki: Glorious Purpose T-Shirt (£18.99) | Xavier Institute Hoodie (£35) | Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters T-Shirt (£12) | Scarlet Witch Special Edition Doll (£40) | The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Pin (£12) | Minnie Mouse Castle Ears (£24) | Eeyore Rainbow Mug (£11) | It’s A Small World 55th Anniversary Opening Ceremony Key Pin (£10) | Minnie Mouse Poppies Ears (£24) |

Lilo with Scrump

First up I’m starting with one of the two Lilo funko pops that I discovered on my search. There are Stitch ones also but, to be honest, those pops actually make Stitch look freaky. Not a fan! Whereas Lilo looks adorable and definitely need to be on my shelf.

If it’s been a while since you’ve seen Lilo and Stitch, Scrump is a homemade doll that Lilo made. It’s super cute and often needs some surgery whenever it gets torn. Part of me wishes the Scrump doll was still in stock on the Disney store but this funko will work too!

Lilo and Pudge

Up next we have Lilo with the weird tropical fish Pudge.

Pudge is a fish that Lilo seems to have adopted and, according to Lilo’, ‘…Every Thursday I give Pudge the fish a peanut butter sandwich’. Only in a Disney film would you get to see a fish being fed a sandwich for food. The only reason he gets it is because Lilo thinks he controls the weather.

There is a bit of sad reason why she keeps feeding him but I’ll let you discover that for yourself! I love that this funko has the sandwich in his mouth!!

Minnie Mouse Poppies Ears

You can’t have a Disney post without mentioning the Mickey/Minnie ears!

I’ll admit that I’ve never owned a pair of ears to wear to a Disney park but I’m hoping to buy a couple for the future! I love how each pair of ears have their own unique character. Since it’s Spring I reckon these Minnie ears with poppies will be perfect! They give me total Snow White vibes as well!

Perfect for any Disney Princess or Prince!

Minnie Mouse Castle Ears

Another pair of ears that I need to own!

These particular pair look incredible and could fit any Disney outfit you wanted to wear. Between the silver sequins and the golden bow, it will match everything! I adore the teeny rhinestone castle in between the ears. It really adds to the special magic that each of the parks hold.

What outfit do you own that would match these perfectly?

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Pin 

I couldn’t chat about what’s new in Disney without including something from Marvel’s most recent Disney+ show ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’. Anyone else who is addicted to the Avengers franchise will know of Sam and Bucky! It still gives me shivers whenever I see Sam with Steve’s shield but it’s perfect at the same time.

Since the moment I knew that this show was going to be a thing, I had my eyes out for pins! Pins are basically like currency for Disney fans! This pin looks so pretty. It’s like you’re seeing both Sam and Bucky threw X-Ray and it suits them perfectly!

Loki ‘Glorious Purpose’ T-Shirt

Did everyone see the new Loki news?! He’s going to be bisexual and have both male and female romantic interests! This is so exciting!! I can’t believe we’re only a couple of months away from the start of the series and I’m already getting ready for the merch!

What fan would not throw money at having Tom Hiddleston on their t-shirt?! Loki looks amazing on this!

Are you guys excited for the new Loki series?

Xavier School Hoodie and T-Shirt

Before I thought about going to Hogwarts, I wanted to go to Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. It had the same premise as all the other places I wanted to attend: kids were different, they were judged for being different and they thought for what they thought was right.

I guess that’s why I need to own something like the hoodie and the t-shirt! It helps that I love the colour yellow and, unless someone knows Marvel and the X-Men, then people will only see both of these as another school/college look. I mean…there are loads of them out there!

It might be Spring and getting close to Summer, but I still like the idea of having long-sleeved tops to wear when I’m not feeling confident.

Wandavision Book and Doll

Back when Wanda first appeared in Marvel I wasn’t a big fan of her. I didn’t really understand her character and she just seemed way too over-powered. When Pietro died and we saw her coming into her own with the Avengers and Vision, that’s when I started to like what Elizabeth Olsen was creating. I still don’t understand Wanda since she’s a complicated character but Wandavision was a masterpiece!

I love when shows make me think!

You see one thing happen and discover later on that something else entirely was happening. Love it when screenwriters keep you on the edge of your seat! Now we have a gorgeous collector’s edition book chatting about Wandavision with interviews and photography and then a stunningly detailed doll!

Eeyore Rainbow Mug

Do I need another mug for my cupboard? No…yes.

Will I still get this mug because it’s super cute and I love Eeyore? Definitely!!

This design is really sweet and, with everything going on in the world right, we all need to be looking for rainbows.

It’s A Small World Opening Ceremony Pin

The final item on what’s new in Disney and, of course, it has to end with a pin! I love collecting pins and really need to add some Disney pins to my collection. I’ve seen a few special keys on the Disney Store website and it’s safe to say that It’s A Small World is stuck in my head!

What magical things are you into from Disney?
