Behind the blog: Pixie planner


Today I'm going to be sharing the next post in my behind the blog series, and todays is going to be in collaboration with Alannah from the blog Pixie planner! She is a 32 year old Disney blogger and Mum to Quinn, and lives in a little village called Balmedie, just outside Aberdeen. She is obsessed with all things Disney: planning trips, the parks, the film's and more! So, let's find out a bit more about her and her blog..

Tell me more about your blog? 

My Blog is still fairly new, but it’s a Disney, Lifestyle, travel and parenting Blog, and I write about our adventures at Disney and right here in the UK. 

What inspired you to start blogging?

I had thought about starting a Blog for a while, but kept putting it off as my Instagram was basically my own personal blog. I didn’t feel like I had enough confidence to write what I wanted to write about, but your blog and inspired me to push myself and I’m so glad I did!

Besides blogging, what else do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

In my spare time, I spend as much of it as I can with Quinn, my husband Kevin and our chihuahua Diesel, walking, eating out and going to the theatre. I love to go shopping, especially to Primark on a Disney hunt of course! 

What's your favourite thing about living in Scotland?

My favourite thing about living in Scotland is the fresh air and scenery. We live a 10 minute walk from the beach and an hours drive from the hills, so there’s plenty places to explore.

What are your favourite and least favourite things about blogging?

I love having the opportunity to write about the things I love and to be able to share my experiences with others. It’s been wonderful so far to work with some small shops and some bigger brands that I adore. The not so fun part is having to sometimes juggle the time spent blogging with being a Mum and working too! 

What's been your greatest blogging achievement so far?

My greatest achievement so far is starting my Blog and having such a great response to it. I’m blown away that people actually take the time to read my blog posts and it really means everything to me!

Who's inspired you the most with regards to your blog?

Your Blog of course! It’s so pretty and colourful, just gorgeous! You are such an inspiration and I love everything you post! 

How do you stay motivated and organised with your blog?

I stay motivated by setting some time aside two days a week to sit and write for my Blog. I usually always know what I’m going to write about and scrolling through my photos always gives me inspiration. I try to be as organised as I can! 

Describe your fashion style?

I would describe my fashion style as girly and filled with bows! Everything is either Disney styled, white or pink and always finished with a hair bow! I wear a lot of dungaree dresses and trainers or t-bar shoes. 

Which Disney character do you relate to the most, and why?

My favourite Disney character is Tinker Bell, but the character i relate the most to is Ariel. Growing up I had long red hair and back then used to get teased for it. She was the newest Disney Princess at the time and she meant so much to me, I thought I could be just like her! 

What do you love the most about the Disney parks?

There are so many things I love about the parks. That sense of belonging we get as we enter into a place filled with magic and happiness. We have made so many friends over the years and it really does feel like home to us. I love watching Quinn play with  Peter Pan, watching Festival of Fantasy and we all love the food!

What's your favourite and least favourite Disney Park attraction and why?

My favourite attraction is Peter Pan’s flight as it means so much to us all, also Thunder and Space Mountain are family favourites of ours. The only attraction i dislike is Tower of Terror as I am so scared of the drop! 

If you could recommend one Disney Park restaurant, which would it be and why?

The restaurant I’d recommend would be the Plaza Restaurant at Magic Kingdom. I think it’s a hidden gem with a lovely light menu of sandwiches, pastas and milkshakes and desserts. It has the most fun atmosphere and we always make sure to visit in our first and last day of our trips!

Where has been your favourite travel destination so far?

My favourite destination so far has of course been Walt Disney World. Where else can you get sun all year round and so much magic!

Where is on your bucket list to travel to next?

On our bucket list is definitely the beautiful Disney’s Aulani resort in Hawaii and Disneyland California. We had planned to go in 2019 but can’t bear being away from Disney World for so long! Hopefully we can visit them both soon. 

What's been your favourite blog post you've published so far and why?

There have been a few blog posts that have been my favourite, the Little Peter Pan post was a lovely one to write and the Magic Of Never Land as it means so much to us. Another one was the Magic and Adventure of the Disney Vacation Club as it's the question I get asked most about and I love helping others plan their Disney trips!

What advice do you have for any new bloggers?

My advice for new bloggers would be, you can do it! Go inspire someone out there by sharing your adventures with the world and always believe in the magic!
