Growing up, I watched a lot of television. Although oddly enough, most of my favorite shows were adult series and TV Land reruns. However, I was still a fan of Disney, Nickelodeon, and Cartoon Network. The Powerpuff Girls were one of my favorite cartoons. Not only are they adorable, but the show was filled with laughter and action. Well, kid-friendly action. When a live-action Power Puff Girl series was announced, I wasn’t sure how to feel. On one hand, it would be cool to see these characters come to life. On the other-hand, can we keep the lighthearted wholesomeness the original cartoon had.
Unfortunately, if you saw the leaked script for the live-action version it is anything but wholesome. I would goes as far as calling it trash! Luckily they are reworking the series, so a decent series could be possible. I decided it might be fun to image what the Power Puff Girl’s style would be like in the world today. They all have different personalities and their fashion picks should represent them.
This was a fun post to write for you guys, and be sure to check back for future posts. Don’t forget to like and share this post with all your friends. You can follow the blog via email as well. Let me know in the comments who your favorite Power Puff Girl is. As for me, I was always a Bubbles girl.
This is a fun little book post idea that I don’t think I have seen anyone do before. I was raised on Disney! I watched old Disney Channel shows, like ‘So Weird’, ‘The Jersey’,and ‘The Famous Jett Jackson’. We had mountains of Disney movies on VHS. I was always a Disney Princess kind of girl. I thought it would be cool to give some book recommendations based off Disney Princesses. Think of it as Belle or Ariel recommending these books to you instead of me. Most of these books I have read, but some I thought fit the princess’ personality.
Princess:Jasmine Movie:Aladdin Book Recommendation:‘When Dimple Met Rishi’ by Sandhya Menon
In the book, Dimple is against marriage. Specically, arranged ones. She has dreams for her future and, at least right now, being a wife isn’t one of them. However, Rishi is a kind-hearted guy that believes in love and following his parents rules. The book doesn’t mimic Aladdin’s story so much, but I can see Jasmine resonating with Dimple in many ways. They both come from cultures that expect certain things from them, and their parents don’t always understand their dreams. Rishi wasn’t anything like Aladdin, but after reading this book Jasmine probably found him to be charming.
Princess:Tiana Movie:Princess and the Frog Book Recommendation:‘With the Fire on High’ by Elizabeth Acevedo
I haven’t read this book, but I hear that it is amazing. Also, I have never watched “Princess and the Frog” so I guess I’m taking a shot in the dark on this one. I have heard that Tiana is a strong, intelligent woman who loved to cook. This book is about a teenage mother that is juggling school, motherhood, and helping support her family. The only thing that helps her cope is her passion for cooking. The kitchen is where she shines, and everything she cooks is magical. I could be wrong, but I think Tiana would find so many similarities to her life within this book.
Princess:Belle Movie:Beauty and the Beast Book Recommendation:‘Moxie’ by Jennifer Mathieu
This is another book on my forever growing TBR. When you think of a book recommendation by Belle, you might picture a story about a book lover, or a romance. But, I went a different route. Although, I love that Belle was an avid reader, and her love story was my favorite, she was adventurous and didn’t want to be a damsel-in-distress. Moxie tells the story of a girl that is fed up with her small-town and the double-standard in her high school. As sung by Belle herself: Every morning just the same, since the morning that we came, to this poor provincial town. She start an anonymous feminist ‘zine that makes its way throughout her school. Soon, she will set into motion a girls’ revolution.
I had a lot of fun coming up with this post. I may do more posts like this, featuring different Disney Princesses. Don’t forget to like and share this post.
