Last year, my boyfriend and I surprised my mother with a surprise comedy show. We took her to see Kevin Hart on his What Now tour. She had no idea what was going on until we arrived at the venue. It was probably one of the most exciting days of her life. You see, we are all huge Kevin Hart fans. He quickly became a comedian that I loved to being my very favorite comedian. His comedy somehow surpassed my love for Dane Cook's comedy. Kevin Hart was the first comedian to get his stand up on the big screen (with his Let Me Explain tour) and it's obvious as to why. There's something so hilarious about him. His size, his facial expressions – everything abut him is just too funny.
My heart filled with excitement when I found out that I was not only getting The Jungle Book lithograph, but that I could give one away to one lucky reader! That's right, my pretties, one lucky reader will win a limited-edition The Jungle Book lithograph. The number will be randomly chosen, but there are only 200 in this edition. You can enter below, but first let me tell you all about the incredible The Jungle Book Blu-ray.
This post is in partnership with Universal Pictures. If you've ever seen Bridget Jones's Diary then you probably remember how imperfect Bridget Jones was. She would drink, smoke, say inappropriate things, and was quite clumsy. Bridget Jones was the perfect example of a normal woman. She wasn't the perfect, well-kept
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.
We are huge collectors in my house. Anything geek or nerdy – we've got it! If it's a movie or show, we own it on Blu-ray. There are some shows that release and unfortunately, are never made it the Blu-ray format, but lucky for us, Star Wars: Rebels is available on Blu-ray and DVD! It hits the shelves on August 30th, but you can preorder immediately on Amazon. You can also pick up some awesome Star Wars Rebels gifts.
Ladies, how do you celebrate Halloween? If you have children you probably get them all dressed up and take them around the neighborhood trick-or-treating. Maybe you're more of a modern mom and you take them to a mall, church, or just throw a party. If you aren't a parent then
BetchaTV is play-as-you-watch app. Basically, you are turning your favorite TV shows into a game! Seriously, who doesn't want to do that? You will play amongst other fans of some of your favorite shows (The Bachelor shows, Shark Tank, So You Think You can Dance, Big Brother, American Ninja Warrior, and more).
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've always loved the Power Rangers. Being a 90s kid, I used to watch it all the time. My friends and I would fight over which Power Ranger we wanted to be. What we loved about Power Rangers is we felt like we could grow up to be them one day. It was a childhood staple. I'm glad it's back for so many reasons!
Being women in our twenties, Sarah Scoop and I got to talking about all of the things that we love: travel, entertainment, and everything girly. We realized that our interests are not only similar to each other, but to other women in our age range. We decided to team up to for a guide that will reach the audience of average, everyday women. We've compiled a list of our favorite things that you can add to your wish list.
Empathy. It's something that our world lacks. It's something that children need to understand at a very young age. Empathy could would save the entire world. I was born an empath. I've always called it a blessing and a curse because it's almost as if I have no control over my own emotions. I've lived my life feeling like an outcast because of my empathy, being stigmatized as an emotional woman. Empathy is so much more than being emotional, though.
We all know the story of Snow White. It's a tale as old as time (Ignore my Beauty and The Beast reference - I'm obsessed). What we haven't heard (until now) is the story before Snow White. Aren't you a little curious about what happened before the story that we all know and love? I'm curious about the before and after of every movie that I love. The Huntsman Winter's War is a movie that you want to own. Not only is it an action-packed thriller with a stellar cast, the story is really interesting.
I am all about scary movies. The thing is that most movies these days just aren't horrifying enough to really give me the creeps. There are some movies that have genuinely terrified me, like The Strangers and The Fourth Kind. For the most part, movies nowadays days are remakes or just too fake for me to take it seriously. I like movies about things that could really happen. Basically, I'm not into the whole aliens and monsters thing, but there are some movies that I will make an exception for. I must say, 2016 has been quite impressive on the movie front. There are some movies coming this year (and next) that are going to chill me to my very core. If watching the trailers gives you goosebumps, just imagine how scary the movies are going to be.
There was a a lot of hype about Ratchet & Clank when it hit theaters. I'm going to be honest, I wanted to sneak away from the house to see it in theaters. There was something so fun about it! Apparently, it was a video game! I'm sure that some of you are saying, "Yes, we know!" It's all news to me, people. I'm not going to lie, I kinda want the video game now - just sayin! I just knew that I needed to grab it on Blu-ray as soon as possible. I've partnered with Universal to not only check out the Ratchet & Clank Blu-ray, but to give one to a lucky winner, as well!
I attended the incredible press event for the Adventures with Tip & Oh series. At the event, I had the pleasure of interviewing some of the cast and screening some of the episodes. The show is now on Netflix, so I'm sure you've binge-watched it already. I mean, it's pretty incredible. To celebrate this fun Netflix release, DreamWorks and I have teamed up to give you a back-to-school kit.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens was MEGA! It's an incredible movie. I literally have 3 copies of it on DVD & Blu-ray. Coming right before Christmas is the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Collectors Edition! This is going to be the most EPIC Christmas gift of all time. I sure as heck would love it for Christmas. Mark your calendars because it's all coming soon!
As an empathetic woman, I strive off of movies that make me feel something. If it makes me cry, then it's a success in my book. Why do you think I love Nicholas Sparks movies so much? They make me laugh, cry, and feel like I'm falling in love again. I love those types of movies and I can't be the only one. I've had my eye on quite a few upcoming movies that I think are going to tug at the heart strings, so I figured I'd share them with all of you.

What makes OrangeGlad really special is that they send deluxe sized treats (not sample sizes like other subscription boxes) and they send treats that are curated around the country. You can expect homemade, gourmet goodies that will add just the right amount of sweet to your life.
The most popular blast from the past beauty trend comes right out of the 80's. We are rockin' high pony tails, big hair, and colorful lipsticks. It's not unusual to walk into your local Sephora and find lipstick shades in every color of the rainbow. I have more pink and purple lipsticks (and lipstains) than I'd like to admit. My makeup bag is packed full of 80's flair and I blame Sephora and the Sing Street DVD.
I am so excited about the release of Pete's Dragon! It's always been a family favorite. I love that Disney is bringing all of these classic movies back to the big screen. I am so excited to see what surprises are in store for us and even more excited to see how cool Elliot is! Be sure to take the time to enter the giveaway below because it's pretty epic!
