Where does on learn how to host a viewing party exactly? I mean, we all have to learn somewhere. Maybe you've picked up ideas on blogs or from friends, but for me – I learned from experience and creativity. You'd be surprised at what you can do when you really put your heart into something. I was recently approached by DreamWorks to host my very own Light Between Oceans viewing party. This is a major drama flick, so I decided that my overall theme would be comfort. The guests at my viewing party were all women, so I made it a point to cater to them. If you're looking to host a viewing party for a drama flick, keep these tips in mind.
Social Media. It has a bit of a stigma attached to it these days, with good reason. A few things we all think of when social media is mentioned are: funny memes, cat videos, addiction, bullying, and gossip. Is that all social media has to offer? Is it only beneficial
Travel and accommodations for the Loving Press Conference provided by Focus Features. All opinions are my own. We are all guilty of assuming we'd react a certain way in a stressful situation. Some of us are confident enough to think we would choose to fight in a fight-or-flight situation. Realistically
For the longest time, I've wanted to write this series. I've always been a people watcher. It's in my nature. My best friend and I used to go to the mall and sit for hours people watching. My stepdad and I did, too. It's definitely my favorite pastime. I've always
For as far back as I remember, I fought for love. I wasn't particularly raised to accept everyone for who they are. I was never taught that race, religion, and differences didn't matter. I wasn't told to look at a person's heart, but I always have. It's truly something I
As a young woman, I've explored a lot of different relationships. I've had really long-term relationships, love at first site relationships, really passionate ones, and really volatile ones. No two relationships are the same, but they all carry a few common things that nobody seems to mention. Maybe we are too involved to realize it, maybe we are too afraid to admit the truth, or maybe we just don't talk about our relationships enough. These are the 5 things nobody tells you about relationships.
There's a popular news article floating around which shows a disturbing image of a couple in the front seat of a car, passed out from drugs, with a child in the back seat – wide awake. I'm not sure how long the poor child was there for or how the story
It's important in our lives to do as many kind things as possible. Some people don't believe this, but I think the reason for our existence is to help one another. It doesn't have to be big acts of heroism. It's the little things that matter. You'd be amazed at how a simple act of kindness can change a person's day or even change their life. It's something that we, as individuals, should be practicing and something that we should be teaching the new generations. This is my 50 acts of kindness bucket list. You can even get this free bucket list checklist printable to check off all of the 50 acts of kindness! It's something fun to do as a family, individually, or with friends.
I can't be the only one dying for a list of new breakup songs. I've searched my iTunes for my most-played breakup songs to make this list for all of you. I filtered out the popular songs, such as Sam Smith's Stay with Me and Adele's Someone Like You. Maybe you've heard a couple of these sounds before, but I bet you haven't heard them all. Listen to them. Cry. Buy them on Amazon. Listen to them 10 times back to back. Cry some more. Thank me in the comments below.
You never know how you can change someone's life just by giving a helping hand, complimenting them, smiling at them, sparing some cash, or standing up for them. We are humans. It's our job! We should always have each other's backs. Sometimes it's important to not mind your own business. Sometimes a simple act of kindness isn't so simple gives more than a simple feeling. We're all in this together, after all.
I just finished watching one of the most inspiring, honest documentaries I've ever seen. Life, Animated is about a boy with autism that couldn't speak, but found a way to communicate through animated Disney films.
In 1967 the US Supreme Court made a decision between the Lovings vs Virginia, which struck down all US State Laws banning interracial marriage – mainly between non-whites and whites. This is a day to remember and a day that should be celebrated until the end of time. I know that it's easy to get wrapped up in all of the hate, but we truly are a loving nation and we should remember where we came from. I couldn't imagine a life that wouldn't allow me to be with the one that I love.
DreamWorks Pictures’ “The Light Between Oceans” is a heart-breaking drama about fate, love, moral dilemmas and the lengths to which one couple will go to see their dreams realized.
If there's one thing in my life that is guaranteed it's that I am going to watch a Nicholas Sparks movie and cry. So, that's exactly what I expected with The Choice. Little did I know that I would laugh just as much!
I absolutely love Nicholas Sparks. He's a hopeless romantic like myself. His books and movies speak right to my heart. I was binge watching his movie just a few nights ago, so you can imagine my excitement to hear that The Choice will be available on Digital HD, Blu-ray, and DVD soon!
