707 Street Retailer of Loungefly exclusive mini backpacks like this Disney princess Tiana inspired one

Where to Get Loungefly Exclusives – 707 Street!

If you are a Disney fan, then you absolutely know what a Loungefly is. They are these cute mini backpacks that range in style, fandom, print, and just overall cuteness. You can see how I have styled some of my own in my Style Gallery. But when it comes to finding exclusive releases of these amazing bags, you aren’t going to find those in a Disney park. So where do you look?

You can find so many amazing Loungefly bags at a number of retailers like 707 Street! Many smaller retailers like these will work with Loungefly directly to create backpacks that you can only find by shopping with them. Which makes shopping small your best bet to find a Loungefly that is not mass-produced and extremely unique. Read until the end to find a 707 Street coupon code!

Get to Know 707 Street and Their Loungefly Exlcusives

707 Street started in 2015 selling women’s apparel out of an apartment and have thus grown into a widely popular retailer of Loungefly exclusive bags like these:

Their preorders are shipped directly from their warehouse by many hard-working hands to make sure their customers receive their items in a timely manner (even though lately shipping has been an issue for many small businesses). And great news – they offer free shipping within the US! But they aren’t just about selling Loungeflys. They also sell collectible toys, socks, and hats.

They are also very accessible to the public and connect as much as they can with their fans. One way they have done this was by hosting a 707 Street Day Event on July 4th weekend next to Disneyland, California featuring their Alice in Wonderland Allover print exclusive Loungefly backpacks. They plan on having another 707 Street Event on July 3rd, 2022 at the same venue and hope to meet more fans in real life again!

There’s Something For Everyone

Whether you are a Disney, Star Wars, Marvel, Harry Potter, or literally anything else kind of fan, you are sure to find something that fits your style. Especially by shopping the 707 Street Loungefly Exclusives section. They also make seasonal Loungefly mini backpacks so you can match your bag to a certain holiday like Halloween or Christmas.

But what if you are a more of a fan of smaller crossbodies or even wallets? Does that mean you can’t enjoy the luxury of owning a Loungefly? Absolutely not! With 800 Loungefly products listed on their website right this second, I would be more shocked if you didn’t find something that you loved.

5 Magically Inspired Shops to Check Out Now!

It’s no surprise that some of the most magical gear we may see at a Disney park actually came from a small shop owner. Whether it be mouse ears, apparel, accessories, or something customized to fit you specifically, there is no limit to what amazing things they can create. What’s even better is that these small shop owners are finding new and creative ways to bring that magic to our homes too so that we can experience a little bit of pixie dust even when we are miles away from the main mouse himself!

Here are some of my personal favorite magical small shops, and my hope is that they will become your favorites too! Click any of the pictures to be directed towards their shop!

Brand By You

Home of the ever famous “Mouse Ears and Cold Beers” shirt (featured in the pictures below), Brand By You makes whimsical and extremely unique designs for apparel! You won’t find anything found at any other t-shirt shop here. The creator, Donna, created this shop to offer plenty of options of both shirt style and color so that no one has to feel like they can’t get exactly what makes them feel comfortable. You don’t like tank tops, well she offers shirts! Love the shirt but would prefer a different color? Ask her! That’s why it’s called Brand By YOU. Not to mention, the designs are perfect for Disney women and men so everyone can get something that fits their vibe.

Her designs cover all sorts of Disney fandoms including princesses, Star Wars, Marvel, and so much more. She also offers other products like hats, pins, and leggings. My personal favorite designs are “Guardians Radio” (pictured below) and “Black Pearl Caribbean Spiced Rum”. I even have an exclusive code for you – use the code DGB15 for 15% off!

Wish Upon Magic

I have been following Ada, owner of Wish Upon Magic, for so long that I am so happy to see all of her progress through this small shop journey. She offers a number of products including mouse shaped, fuzzy pillows as well as other fun shaped pillows that I am sure you will recognize (see pictures below!). But because those pillows are made-to-order and require more of her time as a creator, she also offers lots of fun stickers that are ready-to-ship! She constantly updates her Instagram to let you know when her pillow openings are coming up so be sure to follow along so you know when to get one.

She also has designed her pillows to have LIGHTS! Yes you read that correctly! Not every pillow has them, but she does offer the option to put lights in your pillows (or your pair of mouse ears to wear to the parks!). I honestly cannot wait until I have my own place so that I can purchase one of her pillows for my couch. I also have so many stickers I want to get in the meantime to put on a new reusable water bottle.

Tina Goodman Designs

A shop that I love seeing on my Insta feed is Tina Goodman Designs! Tina makes all of her work from beginning to end – seriously. She constructs the frames together and she paints everything herself. Watching her behind the scenes videos are some of the most mesmerizing because it just makes you appreciate her hard work even more. Her signs are perfect for a fun home office, a colorful kid’s room, or even just to add a touch of magic in your living room or kitchen. There are a few things on my wishlist from her shop that I would love to put in my home office, but since I am planning on getting my own place soon, i want to wait to treat myself to her work when I have a place of my own to showcase it in.

As you can imagine, her work does sell out pretty quickly so be sure to sign up for email alerts on her website so that you can be one of the lucky people to get something from her! She updates her Instagram regularly to make sure you will always know exactly when her shop is going to be opening up.

It’s A Ear World

One of my small shop bestie, Allison, makes quite literally THE BEST ears on the market. Not only are they the only ears to date to not give me a headache, but they are so well made and extremely beautiful. She is very busy so she doesn’t hold a lot of openings, but when she does, it is madness! I highly recommend following her on Instagram and just waiting it out for her openings because trust me, they are worth it.

She has a number of themed ears (like Star Wars, Toy Story, Tangled, etc) ears and then many that are more of one or two colors that can be matched to any outfit for a day at the park. I currently own four pairs of her ears and the pastel tie dye pair that is featured in the last picture below are probably my favorite, followed closely by her sequined Christmas pair that is not pictured.

Sew Dough Co

Based on the UK but THANKFULLY having international shipping, Lucy, creator of Sew Dough Co, makes incredible mouse shaped donut pillows, ears, keychains, and pumpkin cushions. I have been obsessed with her work for years now and actually had the pleasure of interviewing her for a blog I did. So if you wanted to really get to know her and her work, click here.

If you have fallen in love with her work like I have, be sure to sign up for her email alerts. She holds both make-to-order custom openings and ready-to-ship openings, and she is very good at communicating which opening is coming up and when. But lots of people love her work so those email alerts will be your best friend if you want to snag something. I have a little list of things I want to snag during a custom opening from her but I was working the last time she held it so I will have to wait until the next opening!

I hope this list has gotten you excited about some amazing small shops that are out there right now. Check them out and support magical small shops everywhere!

EcoRoots: Your One-Stop Shop for All Things Eco-Friendly!

Part of my 2021 resolutions was to become more eco-friendly. Now, I’m not perfect, but there’s a lot of little things here and there that can really make a huge difference.

My journey towards being more eco-friendly started when I got a job as a tour operator at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. Being surrounded by conservation and consistently talking about and learning about sustainable switches realy got me thinking more consciously about what I could to reduce my carbon footprint. Not to mention my sister is actually the queen of sustainablitiy and she gives me a lot of great tips too!

But one of the biggest tips I was able to give her was checking out EcoRoots. This is a classic “score one for Instagram ads” kind of situation. I started following a lot of eco-friendly companies like Dropps (eco-friendly laundry detergent), Juni Essentials (bamboo toothbrushes and dental accessories), and Grove Collective (sustainable cleaning solutions), and lo and behold my ads started reflecting that. You can read more about different sustainable switches here. Also at the time, I was talking more and more about eco-friendly tips that my followers could start doing to reduce the amount of plastic they use in their lifetime. So all in all, the ads did their job – they got me hooked and they brought me to EcoRoots’ Instagram page!

The ad that got me specifically was for their bamboo hairbrush. Since I already had worked with Juni Essentials to bring to light their bamboo toothbrush collection, and had done research into the impact switching to a bamboo product would have on my carbon footprint, I was intrigued! With how many toothbrushes I will go through in a lifetime, and with the fact that you can’t recycle them, I figured the same would be true for the impact of switching from a plastic hairbrush to a bamboo one!

But after browsing their site, I saw just how many items they had – ranging from home products to beauty products! All I know is that once Cody and I actually close on a home, I will be shopping this site frequently for all sorts of products for all over our house.

Here are some of the items that they have that could be great switches for you in your own home:

Zero Waste Laundry Detergent
Natural Makeup Remover
Dish Scrubber

Natural Loofah
Reusable Produce Bags
Straw Cleaning Brush
Bamboo Hair Brush
Reusable Coffee Filter
Wooden Dish Brush with Detachable Head
Vegan Face Mask
Vegan Eco-Friendly Floss
Vegan Body Soap

We may not always be the most eco-friendly or sustainable in our life choices, but with companies like EcoRoots, at least they make it a little bit easier to make better decisions to help reduce our carbon footprint!

Reviewing the Portable Movie Projector Cinemood

Read to the bottom for a discount on Cinemood!

As the temperature starts to rise, and spring and summer nights become a haven for spending time with friends outside, have you ever wanted to have a movie night out there with them? I don’t know about you, but I love inviting friends over for a camp fire and some adult beverages. But even more so, I love just having a nice conversation while watching a fun movie or show!

I’m also the type of person to hang out with friends and pretty much use those movies or shows as background noise to a conversation, but it’s also nice to watch something new together!

Now it’s not exactly common for people to have TVs outside, so you would need some sort of projector – enter Cinemood! I have had my Cinemood for about six months now and let me tell you, I love it.

Cinemood is a portable movie projector and connects to your phone for easy mobility through the app. Since I have really only had it during the colder seasons, I haven’t used it as an outdoor movie experience yet. But I love using it to project my shows on my bedroom ceiling. I have also projected it onto a white board in a separate room in my house that didn’t have a TV so my friends and I could chat, enjoy some food, and watch a movie together.

This little projector is small but mighty! It can connect to all your favorite streaming services like Netflix, Disney+, Hulu, Amazon Prime, YouTube and more! One of the big things they advertise that it can do is entertain your kids with fun, educational games or bed time stories. I also see lots of parents using it as a way to keep their kids entertained on flights or at restaurants. Since I don’t have kids, I just use it to stream shows and movies in more creative ways.

More about the device itself:

  • Its compact for easy transport
  • It has an internal and silent fan that cools the system down
  • There’s about five hours of battery life
  • You can download movies or shows from a service like Netflix, take it to a place that may not have service, and it can stream those shows that you saved!
  • Based on what you are projecting on, you can even adjust the focal setting to get the most crisp picture
  • And my personal favorite, you can even connect it to a Bluetooth speaker so that you can get an even louder volume. I personally think the volume isn’t that loud so being able to get a louder volume with a Bluetooth speaker is a definite plus.

If you plan to take it outside, you definitely will need to set something up to project it on like a white board or a white sheet otherwise it just won’t work to see the show easily. You can also use it to project onto your garage door and do a little mock drive-in type of theater! Also be sure to take care of it when you do take it outside – it’s not indestructible! So be sure to make sure you don’t take it out when it rains and that you don’t put it directly on the ground. That could possibly lead to something tripping on it or kicking it. Easy to say, I personally love my Cinemood 360 and I love the options it provides for getting creative with how we watch content on the go.

This isn’t to say that I am so hooked on television that I can’t live without it for a weekend out and about. However, I love being able to have the option to have my favorite shows so that when my boyfriend and I get to a point in our busy day where we just want to cuddle, we have the option to do that even without a TV.

There are different versions of this device and the 360 version is the second tier. Based on your needs you may want to go to the lower tier or the higher tier!

Whichever product you got, I have got you covered! You can use my code DONNAGAIL to receive $100 off of your Cinemood. This coupon code can be used on any Cinemood product. I am so excited to get even more creative with where my boyfriend and I can connect and laugh over our favorite shows. Next stop, I’m thinking a movie night out in the desert.. 😉

Four Products to Use to Be More Eco-Friendly

The Juni Essentials starter kit features a metal toothpaste wringer, a natural toothpaste with recyclable tubing, a bamboo toothbrush travel case, a toothbrush holder, and two bamboo toothbrushes - one with white colored bristles and one with charcoal colored bristles

Bamboo Toothbrush – Juni Essentials

In your lifetime, you will go through 300 toothbrushes. In one year alone, the amount of plastic toothbrushes that are thrown out worldwide could be laid out and wrapped around the Earth four times. What’s worse is that toothbrushes aren’t even recyclable! All that plastic is going into landfills so what can we do instead? Switch to a bamboo toothbrush from Juni Essentials! Bamboo is fully biodegradable and it is one of the fastest growing plants on Earth so it’s easily renewable. Lucky for you, Juni also offers a full line of products to make your dental hygiene top-notch as well as more sustainable. You can use the code DONNA20 to get 20% off of their products to get you started! Click here to shop!

Shade Grown Coffee

This is such an important one to support because it helps to ensure that rainforests aren’t being destroyed to make fields to grow the beans. By not having rainforests and natural environments destroyed for coffee fields, it also ensures that the natural wildlife continues to have a home to live in. Many animals are shoved out of their homes and experience endangerment because of urbanization. Shade grown coffee also does not require chemical fertilizers and because being grown in the shade takes a little bit longer to grown, it actually makes the coffee bean taste better! It’s a win-win to switch! Click here to learn more about shade grown coffee and which brands you can shop!

Save money, save water, save clothes, and save plastic by switching to Dropps Laundry Detergent. This simple switch will help you be more eco-friendly in your everyday life! This picture shows the different sized boxes available for purchase!

Laundry Detergent – Dropps

We are all very aware of how bulky laundry detergent jugs are, and the plastic is so thick! Which is why it’s so upsetting that these are one of the must unrecycled products in our lives! Now you can just as easily start recycling your current jugs (which you definitely should), or you can switch to a product that doesn’t use single-use plastic. Try switching to Dropps! Literally everything about their process is eco-friendly and supports a sustainable laundry life. Click here to check Dropps out online!

Reusable Snack Bags

One family will go through around 500 plastic snack bags per years and, yes, they probably won’t be recycled. Now THAT’S a lot of plastic going into landfills. Buying reusable snack bags will not only limit your plastic use, but it will be cheaper for you long-term not having to continually buy more and more plastic bags! Reusable snack baggies can be found pretty much anywhere – Walmart, Kohl’s, Target, etc. I personally found that the ones at Target had some of the best prints, sizes, and styles. Click here to shop reusable snack bags from Target!

Bonus Tip:

And if you want to be even more eco-friendly, consider making some more significant changes within your home. It doesn’t need to be limited to products you use in and around your home. For instance, reaching out to solar energy companies can be an impactful step towards reducing your carbon footprint. By utilizing the power of the sun, you can decrease your reliance on non-renewable energy sources and also contribute to a cleaner and greener environment. You can also consider sustainable housing designs, like green roofs or rainwater harvesting systems, which can further your commitment to an eco-conscious lifestyle. Remember, every decision you make, big or small, impacts the planet and its future.
