10 Things We Learned From Beauty and the Beast….The Original.

What’s that sound? Must be the huge buzz that is the amazing new live-action remake of Disney’s classic take Beauty and the Beast! Hitting the big screens all over the world, this new instalment promised to bring this animated classic which was first released way back in 1991 (26 years ago! Eeeep) into the modern movie scene and audience.

This got us thinking though…. what did we learn from the original? What life gems did we take away from all those VHS (magic video tape things for you youngns) screenings at home on the telly?

To find out we had a little think and have come up with our 10 Things We Learned From Beauty and the Beast….The Original. Enjoy!

You’re never too short-tempered, rich or… hairy to learn.

Okay we’re going to let you into a little secret here, us TruffleShuffler’s are not all the baby-faced teenagers we used to be (I know… the 80s was a long time ago now apparently), this means we’re constantly learning about the latest app, social media profile live chat profile thingy we have to be amazing at suddenly. If you ever think you’re done learning and you’ve got things covered, you couldn’t be more wrong! Be the beast of learning!

Not fitting in, is awesome!

We don’t know about you, but the people we look up to and admire the most are the people who are just out there being themselves and not afraid to be different! We’re pretty sure Belle’s father Maurice isn’t ready from the same chapter as everyone else, but he isn’t afraid to show it! To be weird you need to be brave, and if you’ve brave you can do anything.

Never judge a book by it’s cover.

The Beast is…. well a beast! Horns, mad scary teeth, covered in more hair than a busy salon floor but hey, he’s also kind, brave and you could say has been through a lot in his days. Mr Disney sure taught us that how someone may appear isn’t always the full story. Looking at someone, you’ve never know their achievements, ambitions, struggles, and fears. Why just guess when you can find out for yourself. They might just surprise you.

Stick up fo yo self!

Why is Belle so gosh-darn awesome?! She’s kind, brave, funny and she knows what she wants and goes for it! Is there much cooler than that? She taught us to stick up for what we believe in, what we think and what we want. She didn’t let a whole village bring her down for Pete’s sake!

Nobody likes an angry Beast

If you pay suuuuper close attention to the classic, you might find a few odd moments where the Beast isn’t the happiest camper. Ultimately, this gets him absolutely nowhere. Things only start to go well and him and his relationships when he learns to control his anger and hate which is certainly something we took away from this Disney gem. Keep calm, keep cool and keep moving forward. Thanks Beast!

Good mates always there for you.

Never a truer world said! For us, some of the most iconic and memorable characters in a lot of stories are the supporting roles. In B&TB, Mrs. Potts, Cogsworth, Chip, Lumière, Babette and… the Wardrobe offer some of the best scenes, moments and songs and you could say this is true for life in general. They’re there in times of need, they offer advice, guidance and can always help spread some cheer.

Sometimes popular people aren’t all they’re cracked up to be.

Remember those popular kids at school? How many of them do you really look up to now? Chances are you just don’t care and are probably wondering why you ever did. The case in point here is Gaston, he can wow the crowds, can lay on the charm and get people to do what he wants, however ultimately he is the villain. Smoke and mirrors people, smoke and mirrors.

Relationship problems happen, and it doesn’t mean you should give up.

This one is sad, but possibly true for a lot of us. Belle and the Beast obviously didn’t always get along, but hey sometimes you’ve just got to look through the messy eating and temper tantrums and see the greater good in any situation. You may fall out, argue but you will also compromise and make up if you both know it’s worth the fight.

People who care will offer good advice, try not to ignore them.

We’re sure there’s a little of Belle and a little of the Beast in all of us right? If there’s one thing this absolute childhood classic taught us it’s that it’s the people around us who really help make things happen, transform situations and help us through almost anything. It’s hard to admit you don’t always know what’s best, but perhaps someone else does.

Everyone is (probably) weird AF in their own homes too!

If anyone ever tells you they’re not, they lying! From dancing around the house to your new favourite song like a total goon, to cupping water in your hands from the shower then dumping it all out like a giant waterfall (come on you’ve done it!), people like to get weird at home and that’s okay, they are not alone!

So there you have them folks! These are just a few of the life-long lessons to be taken away from this total Disney classic.

Are there any that you think we missed? What things did YOU personally learn from the movie gem? Let us know by popping a comment below.

Thinking of going to see this new release? Why not look the part with something from our huge range of Beauty and the Beast Merchandise including Beauty and the Beast TShirts, Beauty and the Beast Jewellery, mugs and so much more!

TruffleShuffle’s Top Tips For Pokémon GO!

So it’s official, Pokémon GO is here, and…well… it is absolutely HUGE. Like bigger than the Death Star big! Frankly, if you’re not using your phone to walk around and catch virtual creatures in your area we have no idea why you even have a phone!

With so much buzz surrounding this groundbreaking AR adventure game (for those who never discovered Ingress at least), it seems Pokémon is right back at the top of the pile and bigger and better than ever. Talk about a comeback! From battling it out on our trusty Game Boy colour back in the day to talking stats and evolutions with friends down the pub, Pokémon has always brought people together and turns out is still as cool as ever.

Now it’s back in our lives in style, we figured we would pop together some really cool and useful tips that we have picked up along the way. Who knows they might just give your game a little boost! For free! Sit back and check out our Top Tips for Pokémon Go!

You can grab Pikachu as your starter Pokémon

Yep believe it! Pretty much THE face of the entire Pokémon empire, Pikachu can be grabbed right from the get go. Perhaps not so useful for all you eager players out there already catching your way through the levels, but as a new player when you’re asked by the Professor to catch you very first Pokémon you will be met with some old faces including Charmander, Squirtle and Bulbasaur. However! If you walk away from them (literally walk away), and continue to walk away from them until your phone vibrates the three classic stater Pokémon will appear again. Walk away again, and repeat 3 to 5 times and eventually Pikachu should appear.

When exploring, vary your surroundings

So just like you would fine in the real world, different Pokémon can be found in different areas. So for some examples, Rock types can be found near Quarries, Water types can be found near….you guessed it, Ghost types can be found near cemeteries and Electric types near power stations. We’re not suggesting to climb a mountain or break into a industrial area but instead vary where you hunt a bit.

When you capture a gym, defend it!

So you’re at at least level five and the real fun has begun, setting to work capturing your local gym will earn you some big rewards so well worth doing but hey….nothing good comes easy. Other players will be looking for a taste of of high life so be prepared to defend your gym by leaving good Pokémon there. Good defending will also earn extra bonuses and keep you in a good position.

Master your power

Now we don’t mean Pokémon powers or even superhuman powers, we mean getting the most from your device to keep you playing. It’s no secret that playing Pokémon GO pretty much smashes your battery so be smart. Activate the Pokémon GO battery saver mode in the settings option, dim the screen brightness, close unused background apps you might have running or perhaps invest in a battery charging pack to give you some extra juice on the go.

Throw a Curve ball

Not figuratively, literally! When you’re about to catch a critter, hold down on your Poké Ball and spin it in a circular motion with your finger. This will start it spinning, and if you hit and capture a Pokémon with this move you’ll gain some extra XP. Score!

Get out and play!

Possibly the best tip really and perhaps not one which can be avoided too much. The best way to enjoy the game, earn the good stuff and continue your amazing work is just to get out and explore….safely. Walking distances will help everything along and will help you bump into new characters and places. Again try to vary the locations, location types and even time of day and keep in mind that seeking landmarks in your area will be some great treats along with them too. The more you play, the more XP you will earn and the better everything will get.

So there you have them peeps! Hopefully we’ve passed on some handy hints to help you along you way. Know any other cool tips to help you fellow players? Shout them out below in the comments section!

Naturally, as veteran Pokémon trainers we’ve stocked a whole heap of Pokémon merchandise over the years and it seems that no more than ever is the time to grab a slice of the action and start showing off your love in style! Check out our latest catches including some fab Pokémon jewellery…
