A Full List of SHEIN Disney Bounds – January 2023

I have written so many Shein Disney Bound blogs and, with it, provided a great list to choose from. However, it’s time to update the list! And this time, I am focusing on park-friendly outfits. By park-friendly, I mean that you can easily and comfortably wear these into any Disney park. But don’t think jeans and a t-shirt. These Shein Disney outfits are for those who love looking cute in the park. Who love making Disney content. Who always attend Dapper Day every year. Sound like you?

If so, then here is a MASSIVE list of characters for your next SHEIN Disney outfits:

Marie from the Aristocats

Dare to be classy during your next park day with this cute Shein Disney Bound of everyone’s favorite lady.

Captain Hook

We love a good villain gender bend Disney Bound! To mimic Captain Hook’s hook hand, you could always get a silver glove for one hand.

Colette

Next time you find yourself on Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, you will need this perfectly on point outfit.

Russell from Up

This is a great outfit for summers in the parks. Especially when you prefer function over flare. Be sure to do a character meet and great with Kevin!

Jane from Tarzan

Jane’s outfit closely resembles Belle’s. The key to make the distinction is to have the purple bandana. And having a monkey plushie would help too!

Gaston

You’ll love this Shein Disney outfit as much as Gaston loves his reflection. And I’m sure he would agree.

Tiana

Tiana is FINALLY getting the love she deserves in the park. Not only with a brand new ride, Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, but with a new restaurant at Disneyland too!

Mickey Mouse

We all need a classic character to Bound every once in a while. And it doesn’t get more classic than the main mouse himself.

Rapunzel

I know what you’re thinking. “A corset isn’t park-friendly.” But this is perfect for Dapper Day. Or for those who like dressing up while in the park!

Spider-Man

I am seriously adding everything to my cart as we speak. There could not be a more perfect Shein Disney Bound for Spider-Man than this.

Belle

Belle’s defining accessories are going to be books and roses. Be sure to have the classic rose-colored pop of color to make the distinction!

Ralph from Wreck It Ralph

Wreck It Ralph is definitely an underrated movie. Give it some love with this Shein Disney outfit!

Aurora

One of the most famous scenes in Sleeping Beauty is the “make it pink, make it blue” scene. You can use one of these sets or both to create some really fun transition content. Or you can mix and match them!

Ironman

Playboy, billionaire, fashion icon. Turn heads while you’re saving the world. Getting apperloth items are great for superhero Disney Bounds.

Merida

Remember that your Disney Bound essentially comes down to how you accessorize. Make sure your Merida outfit has some sort of bow and arrow accessory!

Black Panther

If that isn’t the perfect shirt for Black Panther, then I don’t know what is. Keep it simple with mostly black with some slight pops of silver.

R2-D2

Again, this shirt SCREAMS R2-D2. And although the listed items come from Shein, I personally would opt to get the exclusive R2-D2 Loungefly from 707 Street to complete the look.

Although all of these Disney inspired outfits are from Shein, this is not your only option. I make most all of my Disney Bounds by purchasing clothing at the thrift store. If anything this list should serve as inspiration! Use the collages as a reference point to find what suits you. And better than that, be sure to check your closet first before shopping for something new. Disney Bounding can be a rather expensive hobby so being resourceful will help you in the long run. Not to mention that I made these collages with the intention of using different items for every single character. But in reality, when I make my Disney outfits, I am constantly reusing the same pieces in different ways. And you should too!

The Best Loungefly’s for Disneyland Paris

You’re going to Disneyland Paris?! Oh mon dieu, how wonderful! Like any Disney park, Disneyland Paris has its own aesthetic and featured attractions. Simply put, it’s unique! And what better way to match the aesthetic of this beautiful park than to accessorize for your trip. Get ready for the best Loungeflys for Disneyland Paris.

What Disney movies took place in France?

There happens to be so many Disney movies that take place in France. Two of which take place in Paris itself!

  • Aristocats
  • Cinderella
  • Hunchback of Notre Dame
  • Sleeping Beauty
  • Beauty and the Beast
  • Tangled
  • Ratatouille

The Aristocats and Ratatouille both take place in Paris.

What is unique to Disneyland Paris?

For starters, like all Disney parks, Disneyland Paris’s castle is the only one of its kind! It is also a continuation of Sleeping Beauty’s castle. But don’t worry! It looks nothing like Sleeping Beauty’s castle in Disneyland, Anaheim. There are no castles that are the same.

Secondly, this park has an absolutely incredible Alice in Wonderland maze attraction, the Curious Labyrinth. It’s themed beautifully and fully transports you into Wonderland. Having a perfect outfit for this section of the park would make for some great pictures.

In terms of rides, you can also only ride Crush’s Coaster at Disneyland Paris. This makes cruising the EAC that much more fun! Adding a Crush themed mini backpack would make a great Loungefly for Disneyland Paris.

And for those who love Pirates of the Caribbean (which let’s be real, that’s everyone), they have a whole pirates-themed land. Time to dress in your favorite sea-adventure gear and take some fun pictures!

Lastly, get ready for thrill because you can only ride the heart-racing Avengers Assemble: Flight Force at the Avengers Campus in Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris.

Which Loungefly’s you should get

Based on which Disney movies were set in France and what makes this park unique from other Disney parks, here are my recommendations on which Loungefly’s to get for Disneyland Paris:

This is in no way an exhaustive list. Not only are there more options for the movie titles that I have chosen. But 707 Street adds new Loungefly’s all the time. Not to mention, there are some Loungefly’s that you can get by shopping with them specifically. Including more Loungeflys for Disneyland Paris!

Do I really need a blog?

Whether you are a budding content creator, an established influencer, or a business, you may be considering starting a blog. But obviously you are questioning whether or not it’s even necessary. Blogs can be time consuming and extremely difficult to start up. So the question stands…

Do I really need to start a blog?

Simply put, yes, you need a blog. It does not matter what industry you are in, you need a blog if you are trying to make money through selling products, services, or monetizing your content with affiliate links. But this is a loaded question as it also brings up other questions about why you should make a blog and how.

Why do I need one?

When people are looking for something, they are using a search engine to help them. They are typing words into a computer and hoping for an answer. That answer will not be found on your social media page. It will be found on your own website. Social media is great for fleeting engagement, time sensitive information, or sharing something fun. You may recommend to your followers how awesome a certain vacuum is, but within a week, your audience probably will forget the model you were talking about. And if they weren’t a follower of your page, the odds of them finding the answer with you is slim to none.

Having your own website with blog content ensures that those searches find their way to your door.

What do I write about?

It’s easy enough to say that you can “write whatever you want”. But that’s too vague and mostly untrue. You need to write things that are 1) in your wheelhouse, and 2) relevant to your audience. For instance, I don’t have kids and as such you won’t see content about “what to pack in a diaper bag” on my blog. Because that is not in my wheelhouse of knowledge. I also don’t write about “the best plays by the Kansas City Chiefs” because that is not relevant to my audience.

So I will say this: you can write whatever you want within reason.

What shouldn’t I write about in my blog?

Like I have said before, people everywhere are looking for answers to questions. It will be your job to answer them. I can tell you from personal experience that writing about your personal experience will get you nowhere. I am not sorry to say this, but no one cares about how much fun you had in Utah. No one cares about how difficult it was during your breakup. No one cares about the list of books you read this year.

Instead, you should be writing content like this:

  • “Fun Activities to Do in Utah”
  • “How to Get Through a Rough Breakup”
  • “30+ Books that You HAVE to Read This Year”

People are searching for answers for themselves. They are not going to type “what did Chelsea do while visiting San Diego”. They are going to search “what to do on a short trip to San Diego“. Obviously to answer these questions you will need to have personal knowledge on it. But your content should be geared towards helping someone else. Nothing is more painful than looking up a recipe for snickerdoodles and having to scroll through paragraphs and paragraphs of that person telling us about their life history with their grandma. I’ll say it again for the people in the back – no one cares about YOUR experience. And as such you will have to spin your blogs to make sure it is directed towards what other people would be asking.

Blogs are meant to answer questions. Even if they never formally asked them. Write your content in a way that helps to answer a question that they may not have even known they were trying to ask.

So stop waiting. You need to start a blog because you need a blog. I personally recommend WordPress. It has helped me start at the level that I wanted for free and as I saw growth, they had upgrade options to help me do that. I love the amount of customization you can put in the blog content itself. You can also install plug-ins to help advance your blog further. A lot of the plug-ins I use are free too! This year, I was even able to use one of the plug-ins to make my own app! (Check it out – it’s available for iOS and Android!)

What to Wear for a Rainy Day at Disney

Rainy days are only fun if you are properly prepared. Especially at a Disney park. If you aren’t dressed for stormy weather, a rainy day at Disney can be miserable. And for the amount that you spent on tickets to get in, a little water should not be ruining your day! That’s why it’s essential to know what to wear for a rainy day at Disney. For whatever Disney park you go to.

1. A clear, bubble umbrella

This is by far THE BEST decision you will ever make. At least when it comes to rainy days at Disney. I got my clear, bubble umbrella in-store from Marshall’s for $10, but the brand is Totes. You can also get it or one like it on Amazon.

The reason that this umbrella will be your best friend is that it’s see through. No shit, right? For how gorgeous the Disney parks are, you’ll want to be looking around. Having a solid colored umbrella won’t allow you that opportunity. Not to mention, you can more easily maneuver around people since you can see through it. Also for someone like me who wears glasses, this is perfect. I can put myself in the little bubble and as soon as I move into the indoor parts of the ride’s line, my glasses are clear of raindrops.

Gone are the days of having the wind pick up and your umbrella bending against the wind. Gone are the days of the rain moving sideways and circumventing your umbrella’s defenses. This bubble umbrella will keep you dry from the top of your head to your chest area. I was even complimented a few times on my technique for using it! Holding it so my head was touching the top of the inside of it was the most dry I have ever been in the rain. I created a perfect bubble cocoon of dryness.

2. A proper pair of boots

The reason this says “proper pair” instead of “rain boots” is because for a Disney park, rain boots may not be best option. Rain boots make the most amount of sense for a rainy day. But at least in my experience, rain boots aren’t comfortable. Especially for all the walking you will be doing for a day wandering around the Park.

So instead I suggest a pair of boots that will be able to be worn for more than just the rain. My personal pick are these platform boots. Again, I got them in-store at Marshall’s for $20, but they are available on Amazon. They’re fashionable, they work well with most outfits for rainy weather, and they did an amazing job keeping my feet dry and happy for a stormy Disney day.

The platform sole also is great to keep you above the puddles. I even stepped in a pretty big puddle that I didn’t see and I thought “for sure this is going to be when my socks get wet”. But spoiler alert – they never did! This boot comes in so many different colors that there is something for everyone. I may even get myself another pair!

3. A mini Loungefly backpack or something similar

The biggest mistake made when figuring out what to wear on a rainy day is the wrong kind of bag. Anything that is a fabric should never be considered. Not only will your backpack be a soggy heap, but so will everything inside. I highly recommend getting yourself a mini Loungefly backpack or something similar. A PU leather backpack is a great alternative. It’s is faux leather, less expensive than a Loungefly, and can be used more frequently outside of Disney.

707 Street offers a wide range of these kinds of Loungefly backpacks. They also have a lot of exclusive Loungeflys that. you can’t get anywhere else! I recommend browsing Nordstrom Rack to browse a good range of PU backpacks. For the exclusive Crush Loungefly from the picture above, click here. For the pink PU leather backpack from the picture above, click here.

4. A long rain jacket

Your handy, clear umbrella is going to do a great job, trust me. But you’ll still need some proper coverage. Disney has a good selection of fun rain jackets. However, they aren’t long enough to help keep your pants dry enough. Not only that, but a long jacket ensures that your booty stays dry when sitting down on a ride. Lots of rides are outdoors and probably getting wet in the process. Don’t get caught sitting in a puddle.

Again, I recommend browsing the selection on Nordstrom Rack. Not only is Nordstrom Rack great quality, but you also get a fantastic price. For the light blue rain jacket from the picture above, click here.

5. Layers, layers, layers

Layers are essential to keep warm. Unless of course you are figuring out what to wear to Walt Disney World in the summer during hurricane season. In which case, this section does not apply to you. A long sleeve under a classic Spirit Jersey will keep you warm AND in the Disney spirit. And for those extra cold winter days, a pair of leggings under your jeans will also help you out. This section doesn’t require too much additional thought. Your closet should currently suffice to layer up for a cold rainy day at Disney!

Can AI Write Good Blogs?

Believe it or not, this blog was written by artificial intelligence. Well.. in part. Artificial intelligence (AI) is becoming increasingly popular. And its real world uses are becoming more diverse and helpful. One area that it is starting to grow in is online content. So can AI write good blogs?

How can I use AI to write blogs?

Artificial intelligence has come a long way in recent years. One area where it has made significant progress is in the realm of writing. Many people wonder if AI can write good blogs. Well the answer is: it depends.

On one hand, AI has the ability to generate content that is coherent and well-written. It can also be trained on a wide range of topics. That means it is capable of writing about a variety of subjects. In fact, AI has even been used to write news articles and reports, with some readers being unable to distinguish between AI-generated content and human-written content.

On the other hand, AI is still limited by the quality of the data it is trained on. If the data used to train the AI is of low quality or biased, then the resulting content may also be of low quality or biased. Additionally, AI lacks the creativity and critical thinking skills of a human writer. That being said, it may struggle to produce truly original content.

Not to mention, some free online AI’s may have a knowledge gap. For instance, the AI program that wrote the three paragraphs that you just read, ChatGPT, only has knowledge until the end of 2021. So anything that has happened in 2022 and beyond has not yet happened. This could make it difficult to provide content or answer questions in current times.

So.. what’s the verdict?

Overall, it is clear that AI has the potential to write good blogs. However, it is not yet at the level where it can consistently produce high-quality content on par with human writers. While AI may be able to generate coherent and well-written content, it is still no match for the unique perspective and creativity that a human writer brings to their work.

Oh, and that paragraph above was also written by AI.
