Finally after what felt like a decade, my daughters and I got to watch Frozen last Friday evening. I know this is a tad bit late (3 years later to be precise) but you gotta cut me some slack given that animated movies don’t really tickle my fancy. Well Xia, the 10 month old, did not understand much but being the TV buff that she already is, she remained glued to the screen and clapped happily every time the musical acts came on. On the other hand, Xena was competely immersed in the movie, so much so she sat through the entire 1hr 42 minutes, asked a million questions and when the credits rolled, all she wanted was to visit Frozen land. Since her debut appearance on TV (Ebru Africa), she believes anything that comes on TV is real and it is posible to be part of it. When I asked her who she would really love to meet, she said princess Elsa (but of course!) and Kristoff (awwwhhh).
Anway, fairy tales aside, I loved the lesson behind the movie which is something that I will keep reminding my daughters for as long as I have breath in me. To let go of any insecurities they may have, embrace their imperfections and not have a fear in the world. I now understand why Frozen ranks as the highest grossing animated film of all time and why so many companies have made a fortune selling Frozen mechandise!
I cannot think of a fancier way to rock Frozen wear than this two piece Disney set which includes a cotton Frozen sweat shirt and jeggings. I love the star detail that runs right below the knee to the ankle. The warm baby blue sweatshirt featuring princess Elsa makes one feel as if they are right at the top of the mountain singing “Let it go”. It makes for a proper wadrobe staple for this bipola Nairobi weather but if the cold never bothered you anyway, the jeggings can be styled differently! See what i did there hehehe
Love, Joy & Xena
