Enchanted Bikinis is a faniciful, new swimwear line by designer Sina. Sina is a French designer who has been inspired by fairy tales. She wants women to be able to feel like a princess while wearing her bikinis. She does have a fairly lofty goal of $24,800 with less than a month to complete. So, we need to get on this now. Watch her above video about how she came up with the idea, her families wonderfully positive influence and the quality of her garments.

Obviously, as a Disney nut, I’m super jazzed bout these bikinis. Now, there are mass produced fairy tale inspired bikinis out now. However, these promise to be made in America, on a much small scale, and of amazing quality.

BTW-if you aren’t familiar with Kickstarter. It’s practically the grandaddy of crowdfunding. That’s when all of us out there make each other’s artistic dreams come true. I haven’t donated to any fashion based Kickstarter’s in a while and this one is definitely a must.

There are a ton of really cool backer rewards available. Backer rewards are what you receive in exchange for your donation to a Kickstarter project. For just $15, you can receive adorable sandals, for $25 a tote, for $35 a beach dress, or for $60 all of the above.

Now what about the bikinis? Well, $100 donation gets you one bikini, $250 gets you 3 of the 5 bikini styles and $450 gets you all 5 bikinis plus the sandals, dress, and tote.

If you decide to donate and choose a bikini, the sizes are limited to S-XL (A-DD), but I bet if the company takes off her range will improve. Since not everyone matches on the top and bottom, you do get a choice to mix and match sizes.

What styles are the bikinis themselves?

Golden Rivers (a very Pocahontas style)

Seashell (a very Ariel style)

Maleficent-good movie, great headwear

Most years I write about what I’m planning to do for my birthday, what I have already done for my birthday, or why I’m (yet again) lamenting my birthday.

Now, for something completely different. My birthday just passed. It was a nice day/weekend. However, what I’m contemplating at this time are the attempts and accomplishments that have taken place since my last birthday.

Impending Graduation
I am currently starting my last semester of school. In the fall, I will finally earn my Associate’s Degree. It took one extra semester. It’s been more work than I expected. There have been doubts, but I will do this. Eventually (hopefully sooner, rather than later), I will then start on my Bachelor’s.

Life as a Disney Cast Member
The reason that I am one semester behind my peers is that I took a leave of absence last fall to participate in the Disney College Program. It was the most difficult, but also one of the most amazing times of my life. It wasn’t easy. There was a lot of hard work and restrictions. The benefits, experiences, and friendships definitely made it well worth it. WDW is now considered one of my past homes to me. I don’t know if you ever truly leave Disney behind, after working there. I’m always itching and contemplating going back in some capacity. Only time will tell.

Love
My love life has changed in leaps and bounds since this time last year. It’s basically unrecognizable. I’m happy.

Food/Exercise
I was on a huge fitness kick at this time last year. However, I love food. I’m not fond of structured exercise on the daily. I will most likely always struggle with my disordered eating, because I am human. Note: This is more difficult when you are not walking 10-12 miles on the daily, while working at the most magical place on Earth.

Comfort Zone
I can now walk out of my comfort zone. I still suffer from social anxiety/generalized anxiety and am on the spectrum. Yet, I work to overcome/work with these issues daily. Disney definitely helped with this. So, yes I’m still incredibly uncomfortable, but no I’m not going to always just fall back, stand down, or hide. I’m going to strive.

Embracing MY Interests
I am currently embracing both my nerdiness and inner princess to their full extents. It’s not that I’m not worried about others, but I matter more. I definitely regret more of the things that I haven’t done in life, than those that I have. I play Dungeons and Dragons and wear my Minnie ears, deal with it.

Body Realization
My body can handle a lot, but it doesn’t mean that I should push it so hard. I worked and played hard in Orlando and to a different extent in PA, but this isn’t something I need to be doing on the daily. I ended up in the ICU with severe dehydration in April. I do not recommend that. I’m just happy that it happened here, while I was with family.

Cosplay
I, finally (after 9 years of attending cons!), cosplayed both last year and this year, at Philly Wizard World. It takes balls, but I did it.

And now to make the next year even better.

Watch on to find out more about my personal experience as a cast member in merchandise at Walt Disney World.

I believe that the only thing that I forgot to mention (well briefly alluded to) in the video is merchantainment. Merchantainment means entertaining guests. You can do this while working the many functions of your role. I have gotten to do it much more so while I was in greeter role at my store, which I haven’t been doing as much lately.

While merchantaining you can generally chat with the guests, give out stickers or buttons or even play games with them. I’ve even asked children for their autographs “because Mickey asked me to do so”. Another small touch is asking for a guest’s “autograph” instead of their signature when they have to sign for a purchase. Those are the kind of small, yet fun personal touches that add to a guest’s experience. I’m pretty burnt out right now and forgot to mention them in the video. They are definitely worth knowing about though. I may do another video strictly about merchantaining in the future.

I haven’t worked World of Disney yet (due to the construction/traffic/parking issues currently happening in Downtown Disney, aka the soon to be Disney Springs). I do plan to one day though. I have worked the Emporium (the biggest store in Magic Kingdom).

So, after knowing that I’ve been accepted into the DCP since March, I’m finally really packing just days before my departure. It’s difficult to decide what to pack for four months. You need business, casual, workout and sleep wear. Plus shoes! I actually went with a smaller suitcase. This one was coming out to a little over 40lbs, which is the cut off. I’m not going to pay $100 extra (which Spirit charges if you are over). Instead my smaller suitcase is coming out to about 29lbs.
