Disney Cafe In Harrods Review

Recently I went to the Disney Cafe in Harrods London for a lovely dinner with my mum. The cafe had a cute atmosphere full of Disney magic like being in Disneyland. It was London themed and had different Disney movies playing on the walls. Plus you got free Mickey or Minnie ears.



The menu was extensive for a cafe, and good value for Harrods
I chose to order the Mickey Ravioli £12 and my mum ordered a Falafel sandwich £8 then we shared some chips. £3









My Ravioli was delicious and the portion was huge! Mums sandwich was more like a burger and she was it was filling yet tasty.  The chips were crisp yet the real star would be the garlic mayonnaise dip.

We stayed in the cafe for a while after our mains before finishing our dessert. I was happy watching sleeping beauty and filling in word searches.



I ordered the Mickey Waffles for dessert and this was where problems arose! After waiting 20 mins we are told, the machine needed to heat up and it would be 5 more minutes. I explain that we are in a rush. 10 minutes later we are told the machine is broken. My mum was slightly angry wondering why we were not told earlier and asks for the bill. However the manager solved things partially by getting me some Mickey Brownies for free. I say partially as our visit to the shops had been delayed and I was not getting waffles.







No doubt the brownies and ice cream were delicious. (usually £7) I would recommend the cafe to any families who like Disney despite the problems. I am assured the machine is now working. If only I was in London to try them. I will just have to try them next time I am in Disneyland Paris.




belated birthday

My birthday was the 25th January so I am now 16, its not very exciting in the UK so I kinda wished I was in America (again). Anyway, as my pressie from my mum, I went to London to Madam Tussauds. It was brilliant. Then I had a pizza night with some friends. I also got the small world Holland Disney doll and some Gilly Hicks clothes.

Paris diary 1

I have been waiting to post this for a while. On my first full day on Paris after flying via air France I visited the Eiffel Tower, it was definitely worth a visit. I walked up it which was exhilarating and beautiful. After that we went to Ile St louis where we went to Berthillon for ice cream and I ordered chocolate sorbet (delicious) and salted caramel ice cream (another good choice) after that we went to the beautiful Notre Dame Cathedral- much nicer than  Sacre Coer as it was more gothic and you could take photographs. I got mistaken for being French in Berthillon by a french man waiting for the toilets and then we met some annoying american tourists moaning about their food. For Lunch we went to Maoz Vegetarian for yummy falafel salad pitta.



Animal testing

Speaking to someone the other day, they stated that they did not know ANY companies still tested cosmetics on animals. Although there are now more cruelty free companies this is unfortunately not the case and it is important that people know this.

If you do not know where you stand on animal testing, I suggest you watch the video of an actress being actually experimented on in a Lush store window. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/video/video-10354/Woman-subjected-experiments-Lush-animal-testing-protest.html 

Here is a short list of popular companies that test on animals.
(I was surprised at how many there were!)

Dove
Olay
Estee Lauder
Johnson and Johnson - also contains cancer causing ingredients!
Armarni fragrances
Juicy couture fragrances- I wonder if they test on Westie dogs to keep the theme
Maybelline
Herbal essences
Maxfactor
Avon
Ponds
Michael Kors
Sally Hansen nail varnish
Proctor and Gamble

- I have purchased from Dove, Avon and Sally Hansen in the past so now, I am not going to do so again and I shall not be purchasing any Juicy or Armarni fragrances in the future although I have not owned any in the past.

Here is a short list of companies who DO NOT test on animals

The Body Shop
Lush
Superdrug own brand
CO-OP own brand
Nivea
Urban Decay
Hard Candy
Abercrombie and fitch fragrances
BURTS BEES
Collection at Boots
Soap and Glory
Victorias secret and pink beauty
Benefit
Pixi
Sephora

Thanks for reading! I hope you will be trading Olay for Nivea and Juicy Couture scents for Victorias secret ones :)
