Totally Minnie

The news that London designers are creating Minnie Mouse inspired garments in time for LFW reminded me how great this 1988 Disney special was back in the day. I was only a baby really but it takes me back to my childhood seeing it again.

Unfortunately it’s in lots of parts but watch below…

I always wanted to go to the Minnie Mouse Centre for the Totally Unhip. I love that at the end of the special Minnie and Elton John sing together – bit weird a gay guy and an animated mouse flirt-singing but brills anyway. Janet Jackson’s Nasty and the Disney montage in part 7 is a particular fave also.

A Valentine’s day message from the Victoria’s Secret girls – Adriana Lima, Erin Heatherton, Candice Swanepoel and new face Lais Ribeiro.

And lastly, words of wisdom from our poet laureate:

‘Valentine’ by Carol Ann Duffy

Not a red rose or a satin heart.

I give you an onion.
It is a moon wrapped in brown paper.
It promises light
like the careful undressing of love.

Here.
It will blind you with tears
like a lover.
It will make your reflection
a wobbling photo of grief.

I am trying to be truthful.

Not a cute card or a kissogram.

I give you an onion.
Its fierce kiss will stay on your lips,
possessive and faithful
as we are,
for as long as we are.

Take it.
Its platinum loops shrink to a wedding-ring,
if you like.

Lethal.
Its scent will cling to your fingers,
cling to your knife.
