All the Bows all the Ears

For as long as i can remember, I have always worn hairbows in my hair. It all started as a way of keeping my hair out my face, so why not do that with something cute? My Mum used to collect hairbows for me and each one I treasured. My collection has grown over the years and now not only do I collect them, i also make ones for myself too. I am so proud of my bow collection and love choosing one out to wear each morning. If I could have a bow for each day of the year it still wouldn’t be enough!

When I visit Walt Disney World I love to wear Mickey ears and I am so happy that the Disney Parks collection is growing. They have so many pretty designs and I can’t wait to hopefully get my hands on the millennial pink ears next month, they will fit perfectly with so many of my Disney inspired outfits.

Last year the amazingly talented Nikki came into my life and changed things forever! I became brand rep for her gorgeous ears @nickeyearsco. She creates the most beautiful Disney inspired floral ears and they are honestly the most comfortable ears I have ever worn in my life. Each and every pair is unique and made with magic. Nikki also takes custom orders on her Etsy page NickeyEarsCo.

Here are some of the custom made ears Nikki has made for my recent trips.

Tinker Bell is my favourite character of course and these Tink ears are the perfect colour and even light up, so magical. This pair has received so many compliments when wearing them at Walt Disney World, even from Peter Pan and Tink herself!

I love the crown on these Ariel inspired ears, just beautiful. The little details she adds are so pretty and they worked in perfectly with my Ariel inspired outfits. The large crown doesn’t cause the ears to be heavy at all, they are still super lightweight.

My all time favourite ears that Nikki has made for me has to be these Never Land inspired ears. I have never seen ears like them and they are literally perfect for me! The detail in these ears are incredible and I love every little part from Mermaid Lagoon to Skull Rock. So much aspects of Peter Pan incorporated into one pair of ears, I love everything about them.

These Toy Story inspired ears are so fun and pretty. I love the arrangement of the flowers  on the ears and the little Woody hat. These will be the perfect pair for the upcoming arrival of Toy Story Land over at Hollywood Studios.

For our Christmas trip, Nikki made these Gingerbread festive ears complete with little coloured lights. They were such a cute addition and I just loved wearing them during the Magic of Christmas at Walt Disney World.

@nickeyearsco also make Junior ears for the littlest Disney fans in your life. My Little Peter Pan was lucky enough to receive his own custom pair. Peter Pan inspired of course and he was beyond excited! He had always said that he wished he had a pair like mine and he wasn’t disappointed. The kids ears are again super lightweight, comfortable and I would thoroughly recommend them for your little ones.

The lovely Ashley over at @earsfordaysoc sent me these truly beautiful Steamboat Willie Ears for our upcoming trip to Disney World next month. These ears are very well made and I absolutely love the puffball bow, such a cute design. So pretty and sparkly, right up my street with the oversized bow! They are surprisingly super lightweight and I can’t wear to wear them to the parks.

Another pair of ears i recently received for our trip next month, came from the lovely Kayle over at @espositoears. I fell in love with these ears as soon as I received them with their unique Cinderella design. The colour is so accurate and pretty, with a beautiful white bow and a little Cinderella on top to finish. They go perfectly with the Cinderella inspired outfit I have planned for Disney World.

The inspirational Hollie over at @bowsofmagic knew how much I loved hair bows and sent me the most beautiful Tinker Bell bows I have ever seen! So sparkly, unique and filled with Pixie Dust! Perfectly made and so comfortable to wear. Hollie makes and sells beautiful Disney inspired bows to raise money for her “Bows for Brainbow” campaign. Brainbow is a charity based at Addenbrookes hospital who help rehabilitate children with brain tumours.
