Most Underrated Disney Movie


There's a lot of movies that Disney have done that I don't feel are loved too much universally. It's not many, and it's mainly a few of the classics that slipped through the net over the years. So which Disney movie do I feel is the most underrated?

Basil the Great Mouse Detective.


This film was simultaneously the best and scariest film I watched when I was a kid. By the time I was 8, it was no longer scary to me, and it became a fave. I watched it so much with my sister that we drove Mum mad. Over and over, each day until the VHS tape started skipping little bits here and there.

It was released in 1986, so 6 years before I was even born! I have no idea when I first watched it, who showed it to me, or how old I was. But I remember watching it a lot before school back in the 90's, so I remember being about 4/5 years old when the obsession began.


I loved little Olivia, and her dad the toy maker. I was terrified by Ratigan and Fidget - the latter gave me nightmares for ages - but I still insisted on watching it repeatedly. It wasn't until I was a pre-teen that I realised it was loosely based on Sherlock Holmes, which just made me love it even more.

I recently bought it on DVD and have been reliving my childhood again!

What was your fave Disney movie as a child, and which Disney movie do you think is seriously underrated? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

5 Awesome Places To Eat In Cornwall


Cornwall is like my second home. I've been every year since I was 11 months old, bar 2 years. Sadly can't afford to go this year as well as the Florida trip, so I'm having to miss a third occasion!

Cornwall is a place that is always so calming to me. Lots of countryside, beaches, clean air and quaint little seaside towns. Along with all the lush countryside, there are a plethora of places to eat - and as someone who has ate in like 90% in Cornwall, I can say I've tried a lot!

These five places are ones myself and the family visit each time we go on holiday there, and I've yet to be disappointed in a single meal from any of these places.


Fort Inn, Newquay

Just around the far end of the high street, and on the way to Fistral Beach and the Headland Hotel, this pub/restaurant is perfect for lunch and dinner. It gets very busy, very quickly between 12 and 2 in the afternoon, so getting there a little early is wise!

They have a wide range of foods - my dad is a fan of their steak pies, and my sister loves their cheese sandwiches - and it's always a big portion, so you won't be hungry. Above is my fave meal at the Fort Inn... My trusty chicken and bacon caesar salad!

The White House, Truro

No, not where Trump resides... Above is another chicken and bacon caesar salad, which again, I have each time we go here. We usually eat here 2-3 times each holiday, as it's on the way home from a few locations so is easy to access. They have a lovely roast dinner buffets on Sundays, and there's a couple of large pool tables and fruit money machines to play on!

Golden Guinea, Looe

We've been eating here every year we've gone to Cornwall during our Looe visits. They have a good range of dinners on offer, but me and Dad religiously have their roast dinners as they're sooooooooo yummy! Above is a nice beef dinner, which is delicious and a nice serving of veggies when you've had nothing but junk food all holiday!

Slades House Country Inn, Wadebridge

This pub is a new fave from a few years ago! We drove past it one day and Dad made it his mission to go back for food one afternoon. We were not disappointed! The staff were super friendly, and the owner was having a chat with a load of the customers, which was a lovely touch to the atmosphere! The portions are massive here, and the burger and chips I had above, were only half consumed!

My Dad and Grandad both had super large cod and chips which took them nearly 30 minutes to polish off, so you could easily split some meals between two people.

King Arthur's Arms, Tintagel

Ahh the new fave! This is one we sadly can't go back to all that often as it's very out of the way for us to get to! Where we stay is a while away from Tintagel, and though there isn't a great deal to do there, this pub is honestly worth the trip. Tintagel is the supposed home area of King Arthur and Merlin, so there are a lot of visitors there each year, and the pub is named after the famous King!

There's free WIFI, which is always a bonus, and the food is amazing. I had this beauty of a Ploughmans salad when we went the first time, and it was the best dinner I had the whole holiday!


So those are my fave places to dine in Cornwall when on holiday! If you've been to Cornwall, let me know your fave places to go, as I'd love to try them out! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

There are some amazing products on here and after spending a few hours getting lost in the recommendations, I've got a massive shopping list building up.

The Perfume Edit


I wear perfume every day as I cannot get enough of the many scents I have on my shelf. I've got about 20 different perfumes on the go right now, but these three are the ones I always go back to time and time again.

I've got a variety of cheap samples, 'higher end' products, a bunch you can get in drugstores, and a few from Primark!



Primark Gold - £8

I've been using Primark Gold for about 2 years now, and sadly they no longer stock this it seems - but luckily at Christmas, I bought 2 more large bottles, so that should last me for about another year or so! It's my fave one to use, so I'm sad it's no longer about.

Zoella's Lets Spritz is a lovely summer scent that I normally use on holidays - or when I want to be reminded of summertime during winter! It's a nice cheap scent as well, so I don't feel so bad using copious amounts of it at a time!

Finally, Hollister Wave* is a new fave from Christmas. I was kindly sent this by Debenhams to use in a Christmas gift guide! It came in a set with a body lotion which I used very quickly! This scent is amazing, and with it being £33, it's the more expensive end of the perfumes I own. But it's so worth it as it smells amazing and one I recommend.

What are your fave scents and how many do you own? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Beacon Beefeater, Dartford*


About 8 weeks ago, I was contacted by the lovely Chris from the Beefeater restaurant Head Office, about reviewing their newly refurbished Beacon Beefeater in Dartord. I am a food lover, which should be obvious from the size of me!

Thankfully I was able to say yes, as I was going to be in the area for a shopping trip with Nicola at the end of May, and Chris was kind enough to wait that long for me to visit and review, so thank you! I'm down south in Kent, so about 30 or so minutes away from Dartford, which is on the way home from Lakeside, so that's where we headed to dinner!



'The restaurant, located at, Halcrow Avenue, Dartford has undergone a stunning makeover to create a light and welcoming environment for guests. The venue boasts a fresh look inside and out, with booth seating now available for larger groups. With comfort and style a priority for Beefeater, visitors can now enjoy the modern interior and relax in the new-look bar.

The menu is packed with a wide range of favourites, including tender steaks, mouth-watering burgers and fresh salads. Guests can also tuck into Beer-Battered Cod & Chips, Smothered Chicken and the Beefeater Mixed Grill, each prepared with care and presented with flare. 

Beefeater prides itself on affordable quality with not-to-be-missed deals and offers. Steak and chips is up for grabs from just £11.29 with a Daytime Menu also available between Monday and Saturday before 6.30pm.'












My dinner was amazing, and Nicola and I, both enjoyed the atmosphere there and the food! The staff were all really nice and attentive. We were served super quickly - albeit a 15 minutes wait for the bill - but was overall a lovely place to eat, and another Beefeater I can now add to my list of places to go!

If you're in the Dartord area, or want to eat after a day of shopping at Lakeside, this is the perfect place to! Are you a Beefeater fan? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)
