I don't know about you all, but I have moments when I'm feeling nostalgic, ready to watch all the shows and movies that brought me so much joy in childhood.

Streaming platforms and apps have proven to be helpful, but for some of us whose favorite shows or films from the past are only available on DVD or VCR ( I happen to have both still), it can be challenging to watch certain things. For instance, watching the 1997 Rodgers and Hammerstein's made-for-TV Cinderella movie on YouTube despite the low quality would have to suffice, unfortunately.


But no need to worry.

On Friday, February 12, this will no longer be the case. Why is that? This iconic film starring Brandy and Whitney Houston ( Houston also happened to produce the movie) is finally coming to Disney+. I could not contain my excitement!

Let's take a little trip through memory lane to give appreciation for this film.

Brandy not only did a fantastic job portraying a lovely and caring princess, the cast was also very diverse and inclusive, which is admirable. It's hard not to recognize a magical world that represented all aspects of the representation within the world and that there is so much potential to follow your dreams and make them a reality.

It's hard to forget that both Brandy and the late Whitney Houston have some of the most angelic voices ever to grace the music industry.

All in all, it is thrilling that Disney+ is releasing the movie for the many of us who had fond memories of the chic and goddess energy of Fairy Godmother ( portrayed by Houston), the kindness of Cinderella, or Queen Constantina ( portrayed by Whoopi Goldberg).

It's equally as remarkable for the new generation to experience the wonders as well. February 12 can't come soon enough!

Peta and Staffies: Why the call to eradicate the breed has to end

Peta has called for Staffordshire Bull Terriers to be sterilised, claiming it's the best thing for the breed. But shouldn't the focus be on irresponsible owners, not the dogs?

Once again Peta (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) - a charity that claims to protect animals, is pushing for Staffordshire Bull Terriers - a loyal, loving family dog, to be eradicated.

In 2018, during a government consultation of the Dangerous Dog Act 1991, the charity called for Staffies to be added to it claiming, at the time, that it was, 'best for the dog.' If they had been, it would have made it illegal to own the breed in the UK.

The challenges of summertime parenting - from brain freeze to sandy cars

The best time of year to be a parent, just don't forget sunscreen

I love the sun more now than I ever did because parenting gets a bit easier in nice weather. But of course, the lighter nights and sunshine bring their own challenges too.

My four-year-old says the only thing he doesn't like about summer is brain freeze, which indicates how many ice lollies are consumed in this house. I made my own last summer from sugar-free cordial and may have to do the same again this year because they requested ice lollies for breakfast and haven't stopped asking.
