L'Oréal EverCurl

I had super naturally curly hair when I was younger. I then started to color and use heat styling on my hair and it is now less curly, but still wavy. I need product to help with my waves so I tried this Ever Curl from L'oreal. It smells great, helps with frizz, and won't make your hair greasy or stiff. Try it out to help tame your waves.

I received L'Oreal EVER products complimentary, but all opinions are my own.


I remember going to the theater with my sister-in-law in 1991 to see Disney's animated film Beauty and the Beast.  The library dance scene looked so unbelievably real. I was hooked on the movie and the music instantly.
You can only imagine my excitement when Disney announced a live-action adaptation of the Studio's animated classic. It is even more exciting to here the cast: Emma Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens as the Beast and as the Prince, Luke Evans as Gaston, Kevin Kline as Maurice, Josh Gad as LeFou, Ewan McGregor as Lumière, Stanley Tucci as Cadenza, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, Audra McDonald as Garderobe, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, and Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts.
Throw in Ariana Grande and John Legend singing the Beauty and the Beast iconic song and this is sure to a hit that I am so excited to see when it opens in theaters everywhere on March 17, 2017.



I have been trying to see the ice castles in Midway for years, but the crazy winter weather seems to warm up before my visit date and melts the ice. However, this year, I made it!
The ice castles are an amazing sight to behold.
 You can purchase your tickets online for a certain day and time. This is really nice so it isn't super crowded.

The first castle was built in Alpine, Utah, in the front yard of Brent Christensen. He was building an ice cave for his daughter and then the Ice Castle concept was started.

 It is like a Frozen movie lover's dream come true. There are slides, mazes, and fountains that are available all day/night.
Make sure you dress warm during your visit because you are walking around ice! It's like being in the frozen foods section at the grocery store the entire visit.
The ice looks blue during the day. At night, there are different colored lights that illuminate the ice masses. Some nights even have fire dancers/entertainers and you just might see Elsa or Ana princesses available for a picture while you're there.
These are a must see for the entire family. The castle staff encourage you pull your small children in a sled and leave the stroller at home. Pets are not allowed either (to prevent yellow snow).

There are ice castles in UT, NH, MN, WI, and AB in Canada.

How many of you are excited for the new Disney Star Wars film?

In a time of conflict, this film attempts to tell the story of how a small band of rebels were able to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.

Disney MOANA

I was able to see Moana with my nieces and nephews a few weeks ago. My niece Jacq walked out repeating, "That was so good. I would see that again!"
MOANA stars voices from Dwayne Johnson (Maui) and newcomer Auli’i Cravalho (Moana). It was directed by Disney legends Ron Clements & Don Hall (“Aladdin,” “The Little Mermaid,” “The Princess and the Frog,” etc.) with music by Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Hamilton”). 
The movie story celebrates the Pacific Island cultures and introduces new Disney characters that will keep you laughing and smiling throughout the entire film. It is a show that is great for the entire family.
The film opens in theaters November 23rd.

Enjoy some printables and games from the movie below.

Christmas Love Letters from God #BOOK #GIVEAWAY

I love Christmas. It is my favorite holiday. I love holiday movies, books, decorations, lights, and everything. Most importantly, I love the reason for the season.
I discovered a cool book for children ages 4-8 called Christmas Love Letters from God that tells the story of Jesus’ birth in a great way. The book includes 7 stories, beginning with Isaiah’s prophecy and ending with the visit of the 3 wise men.
After each story, children will find a letter addressed to them from God (there is a line to write his/her name). It is designed to make them feel special and inspire them with messages of love and hope.
I love this book. Check out this video of it.
It can be purchased on Amazon, Barnes & Noble

Marvel's DOCTOR STRANGE opened in theaters November 4th.
Marvel Studios’ “Doctor Strange” follows the story of world-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange who, in his quest for healing his hands after a horrific car accident, discovers powerful magic in a mysterious place known as Kamar-Taj. He quickly learns that this is not just a center for healing but also the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality. He makes new friends and discovers a new set of magical powers in his grasp. 
For those of ya'll who like to travel, you should know this film was shot in London, New York, Kathmandu (Nepal) and Hong Kong. 

To research his character, Dr. Stephen Strange, Benedict Cumberbatch spent time with neurosurgeons, and the director, DP and production designer all visited New York City operating rooms and emergency rooms to guide them towards the lighting and textures they would need to create a realistic hospital environment onscreen. 

Doctor Strange’s car in the film is a Lamborghini, which he drives when he is a surgeon. Six Lamborghinis were required for filming. 
Here is a clip of one of my favorite parts:

I was given the opportunity to view the DreamWork's Trolls movie. It is hilarious! Combine voices of some very talented actors (Anna Kendrick, Zooey Deschanel, James Corden, Gwen Stefani, Russell Brand, and a ton more), an amazing soundtrack including a song from Justin Timberlake, and gangs of hilarious lines and you have a movie that you absolutely MUST see.
I promise the entire family will love this movie and every character in it.
