Movie Review: The Hero of Color City


photo02Although Fall is one of the best times to go see movies in the theater, there seems to be a shortage of kid-friendly movies right now. I’m talking about G-rated, wholesome movies that you can take a toddler to and not worry about violence or inappropriate content. When I received an invitation from The MOMS to attend a screening of The Hero of Color City I was excited – I had no idea a toddler-friendly movie was coming out and I was really looking forward to seeing it with my kids.

legends-of-oz-dorothys-return-33_rgbOne of the most popular books of all time, The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum, has influenced so many artists. Numerous theatrical productions, movies, songs, and other forms of art were inspired by it. The new movie, Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return is an animated sequel to the book, loosely based on the book Dorothy of Oz, and I recently attended a screening with my 7-year-old daughter which we both enjoyed.

Kids’ Film Review: The Pirate Fairy


THE PIRATE FAIRYAre your kids fans of Tinker Bell and the Pixie Hollow fairies? Disney’s new Tinker Bell movie is out now on Blu-ray/DVD and is a delightful movie for young kids. Both boys and girls will love watching Tinker Bell and her fairy friends as they confront a “rogue” fairy who has become a pirate in the movie “The Pirate Fairy”. My two older kids and I recently attended a screening and thought it was adorable. Both my kids immediately wanted to watch it again! Read the rest of this entry

Unique Family Film: Adventures of the Penguin King


PENGUINKING_FinalPoster-IP8bI recently saw a really unique film: The Adventures of the Penguin King. It looks like a documentary but it is narrated by Tim Allen so, as you can expect, there’s a lot of humor involved. What makes it so unique is that the story is told from the point of view of a penguin, rather than an outside (human) observer. Seeing the life of a penguin from this perspective is especially great for kids because it gives them a chance to see how animals live in a place none of us will likely ever travel to. It’s also great for parents because it shows how animals and humans are similar in many ways since they deal with many issues that human parents deal with. Read the rest of this entry

The Little Mermaid Second Screen Live: Fun & Games with Your Favorite Mermaid!


IMG_4878When I was in college I went to see the Rocky Horror Picture Show. The audience put on quite a performance. I remember feeling like part of a group in a very unique and interactive movie experience. Last week I had a similar feeling when I attended a screening of The Little Mermaid Second Screen Live. The screening was synched to an app and my 6.5-year-old daughter and I had so much fun watching and feeling like we were part of the movie. Read the rest of this entry

HTY GOLD Intensive Face & Neck Serum: The Natural Way to Fight Anti-Aging


faceandneckserum_2As a mom of three young kids I find myself so focused on taking care of their needs that I am constantly forgetting to take care of myself. We leave for a day out and I forget to pack myself lunch. Or a hat. I’m just so preoccupied with the kids that I often neglect myself. When it comes to my nighttime routine, I often forget to take care of a very important part: my neck. At 38, my neck looks fine but what will it look like when I’m 50? I recently discovered a neck cream that I think is the answer to turkey neck: HTY GOLD Intensive Face & Neck Serum. Do I sound over-confident? Here’s why:
