Happy Birthday Mickey Mouse!

November 18th, 2014

mickey mouse birthday

Today is Mickey Mouse‘s birthday! The super famous fictional Disney character first appeared in a cartoon titled “Steamboat Willie” on November 18th, 1928, making Mickey Mouse 86 years old today! Wow! To celebrate our favorite mouse’s big day, we pulled together a few fun facts about Mickey that you may not know!


-Walt Disney got the inspiration for Mickey Mouse from a tame mouse at his desk at Laugh-O-Gram Studio in Kansas City, Missouri

-In 1925, Hugh Harman drew some sketches of mice around a photograph of Walt Disney.

-In the Spring of 1928 when looking for a new cartoon character, Walt Disney became inspired for Mickey Mouse because of a tame mouse at his desk at the Laugh-O-Gram Studio in Kansas City, Missouri.

-One of Disney’s artists, Ub Iwerks, kept Hugh Harman’s drawings in mind and worked to create a new mouse character for Disney

-”Mortimer Mouse” was born, and later changed to “Mickey Mouse” when Lillian, Walt’s wife, told him to change it.

-Mickey’s hands have only three fingers and a thumb. This simple design was important to Walt Disney, and he stated why: “Artistically five digits are too many for a mouse. His hand would look like a bunch of bananas. Financially, not having an extra finger in each of 45,000 drawings that make up a six and one half minute short has saved the Studio millions.”

-Mickey’s first appearance, “Steamboat Willie,” was first released in New York and was co-directed by Walt Disney and head animator Ub Iwerks.

-From the first speaking short in 1929, “The Karnival Kid,” all the way until 1946, Walt Disney himself was the voice of Mickey Mouse! After that and til today, only a few other voices were Mickey.

We hope you liked all the awesome facts about the birthday mouse! We can’t believe he is 86 years old today! Happy birthday, Mickey Mouse!

What is your favorite Disney cartoon? Can you believe Mickey is 86?

November 15th, 2014

Home To Mama


Singers Justin Bieber and Cody Simpson got together to sing the most amazing song together! The collaboration is called “Home To Mama” and we’ve been waiting a long time for it to come out- and now it has! The duo took to Twitter earlier this week on November 11th to let fans know they were dropping the single. Cody tweeted,

“Aye @justinbieber you wanna give them a little something later today?”

and then


and then Justin answered,

“For the fans… #mybeliebers.”

The acoustic duet is a really sweet song and amazing instant hit that we just can’t stop listening to! We hope that Justin Bieber and Cody Simpson get together to write more music again in the future! We love hearing both of their voices on one track! For now, we will read the lyrics and sing along to “Home To Mama” below!



“Home To Mama”

I don’t work hard when it’s easy
I put in work when it’s hard
Girl they never believed in love until I had yours
This is more than a season
And I’m not just sprung
I’m not afraid to tell you that you’re the one
But when I wake up thinking ’bout
The one that I can run to when I’m feeling down
Life is so good when you’re around
Girl nobody from the past is beating you right now
Cause I’ll take you home to mama, let you meet my friends
Cause you don’t come with drama
So I want you till the world ends
You’re way more than worth it
But I don’t feel like I deserve it
You got the pieces
You’re my kind of perfect


What do you think about Justin Bieber and Cody Simpson’s song “Home To Mama”? How many times have you listened to it so far?

November 14th, 2014


“Twilight” actor Robert Pattinson is sporting a brand new look, one we have never seen before! He was just seen wearing a really nice suit to the 2014 GO GO Gala at the Montage Beverly Hills in California on Thursday, November 13th. The style looks pretty normal from the front, but when he turns around you see a small rectangle of hair around an otherwise shaved head. So weird! Get a better look at the larger photos below and then vote to tell us if you love or hate Robert‘s new look!

Get The Look: Taylor Swift’s Chilly Weather Outfit

November 14th, 2014


The weather is getting chillier outside, so Taylor Swift is beating the cold air while looking totally stylish at the same time. She wore a navy sweater that reminds us of the ugly Christmas sweaters we love so much, with a knit hat, burgundy pants and tall boots. We think her look is cozy and adorable, so we found some items for you to wear to score her look!



First up you will need a sweater! We like this cable knit bear sweater from Kohl’s!



The burgundy ankle pants from Target are perfect for the look!




This pom pom hat may not be green, but we like it anyway! It comes in grey, pink and mustard yellow, also at Target!



These Croft & Barrow brown boots from Kohl’s pull the entire look together. Such fun!

We can’t wait to see what else Taylor wears during the Winter season- we know it will be amazing and we can’t wait to try and find things to match her!
What do you think about Taylor Swift‘s outfit? Will you get any of these pieces?

New 1D Song Written By Ed Sheeran!

November 13th, 2014


Amazing! One Direction just released a new song titled “18″ from their upcoming album “Four” on Tuesday, November 11th, which was written by another awesome singer, Ed Sheeran! Ed shared on his Twitter feed,

“I wrote a song called ’18′ on the new one direction album, the song is released today at 4pm uk time x”

Both One Direction and Ed Sheeran will be singing the new Christmas remake of “Do They Know It’s Christmas” this coming weekend for Band Aid 30, don’t forget! For now, we are going to listen a trillion times to One Direction‘s new hit song, “18″, which is available for purchase on iTunes (or ready to listen to if you pre-ordered!) You can read along with the lyrics below, if you are listening!


I got a heart and I got a soul
Believe me I will use them both
We made a start
Be it a false one, I know
Baby, I don’t want to feel alone

So kiss me where I lay down, my hands press to your cheeks
A long way from the playground

I have loved you since we were 18
Long before we both thought the same thing
To be loved, to be in love
All I can do is say that these arms were made for holding you
I wanna love like you made me feel
When we were 18

We took a chance
God knows we tried
Yet all along, I knew we’d be fine

So pour me a drink
Oh love, let’s split the night wide open and we’ll see everything
We can live in love in slow motion, motion, motion

So kiss me where I lay down, my hands press to your cheeks
A long way from the playground

I have loved you since we were 18
Long before we both thought the same thing
To be loved and to be in love
And all I can do is say that these arms are made for holding you, ooh
And I wanna love like you made me feel
When we were 18
When we were 18
Oh lord, when we were 18

Kiss me where I lay down, my hands press to your cheeks
A long way from the playground

I have loved you since we were 18
Long before we both thought the same thing
To be loved and to be in love
And all I can do is say that these arms were made for holding you
I want a love like you made me feel
When we were 18
I want a love like you made me feel
When we were 18
I want a love like you made me feel
When we were 18

What a wonderful song! We already memorized the lyrics and will be totally ready the first time we hear it playing on the radio! We can’t wait for One Direction‘s album “Four” to come out next Monday, November 17th!

Have you heard 1D‘s song “18″ yet? What do you think about it?
