Whoever says they are too old for family holidays is lying to you! I am 23 and I don't think I will ever stop enjoying my family time away, especially since I moved out. I appreciate all the little things about family time that I used to take for granted, when I go home and my parents offer to do my washing I think to myself "I must be the luckiest girl in the world". I even enjoy getting in the car and going to a massive supermarket back home because living in central London it sometimes feels as though the biggest shops I can find are Tesco Express and Sainsbury's Local.
So when my lovely family invited me to go to Paris for a week I was OVER THE MOON. Not only do I get to spend a week with my beautiful family but I get to visit one of the most beautiful cities in the world. PLUS I got to go to Disneyland for three days, I know right? LIVING THE DREAM!
I obviously decided to dress like a princess with this tutu skirt from Missguided and please try to refrain from being too jealous but some kids actually walked past when I was shooting this outfit and said 'look there's a princess'. YES children you are right I am a real life Princess haha. I wore these Vans trainers with the outfit for two reasons, one of them being comfort and they other being that I think trainers and skirts enable me to channel my inner Avril Lavigne. I was OBSESSED with Avril Lavigne when I was younger.
I actually have a funny story about it so here it goes: when I was younger I was spotted dancing at a Liberty X concert and if you don't know them, then YouTube them because you'll love your life. At the concert I was approached by a producer and she invited me to Wembley to meet with her recording label as they were auditioning for a new girl band which later on became "S Club Juniors". I LOVE singing and I am actually good at it however after dancing in front of the panel and the producers etc I decided to sing a rendition of Complicated by Avril Lavigne. Which unfortunately for me just wasn't my style of singing, didn't suit my voice at all and showcased absolutely zero percent of my talent. I was aware I hadn't got the audition when I saw their faces and they came back with "interesting. Have you got anything else?". They were not impressed and I look back now and think its hilarious because I promise you I got so into the song in front of them because I loved Avril but honeys Avrils song just wasn't for me. I went for a pop band audition and sang Avril Lavigne - Am I alright? hahaha.
This is my issue I started talking about trainers and I have completely gone off topic. Back to the original story, I think that dressing down this tutu skirt gave me a cute/cool edge and I loved this outfit. My hair unfortunately wasn't having a great day because I had been on so many rides prior to shooting this look so please excuse the mess that it is. I cannot apologise too much though because honestly those rides are just IMMENSE. There is something so fun about rollercoasters, the thrill that you get you just can't describe.
Our first day at Disneyland Paris we went to the Disneyland Park as they have two different parks in Paris and we had a three day pass so we decided to dedicate a whole day to each park. We stayed late to watch the firework display and obviously like the big emotional wreck that I am I couldn't stop crying, you see images projected onto the Disneyland Princess Castle and you watch a fairytale infront of your very eyes, with all of the fireworks and music on top of it, no wonder I cried. It was just visually incredible and it makes you remember all the Disney films you watched growing up, its hard not to feel like a child again.
