RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET opening in theatres everywhere November 21st

In RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET, video-game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and best friend Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) leave the comforts of Litwak’s arcade in an attempt to save her game, Sugar Rush. Their quest takes them to the vast, uncharted world of the internet where they rely on the citizens of the internet—the Netizens—to help navigate their way. Lending a virtual hand are Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), the head algorithm and the heart and soul of the trend-making site “BuzzzTube,” and Shank (voice of Gal Gadot), a tough-as-nails driver from a gritty online auto-racing game called Slaughter Race, a place Vanellope wholeheartedly embraces—so much so that Ralph worries he may lose the only friend he’s ever had. Directed by Rich Moore (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph”) and Phil Johnston (co-writer “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Zootopia,” writer, “Cedar Rapids”), and produced by Clark Spencer (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Bolt,” “Lilo & Stitch”), “Ralph Breaks the Internet” hits theaters on Nov. 21, 2018.

GAME CHANGER
New World Tests the Strength of Friendship
“Ralph Breaks the Internet” takes Ralph and Vanellope to a vast, unfamiliar world with
endless possibilities. When filmmakers put themselves in the characters’ shoes, they
realized Ralph and Vanellope would have completely different points of view when it came
to the internet. Says director Rich Moore, “They’re like a couple of small-town kids who
venture into the big city. One falls in love with the city, while the other one can’t wait to go
home.”

“Ralph is in love with the life that he has,” adds director Phil Johnston. “But Vanellope is
ready for a change—she wants to spread her wings a little. That creates conflict within
their friendship, which becomes the heart of the story.”
“I love that the film is about change,” says producer Clark Spencer. “Two best friends are
about to realize that the world won’t always be the same. The internet is the perfect
setting, really, because it’s all about change—things change by the second.”
The story kicks off in the arcade, where Ralph and Vanellope have been living
harmoniously—fulfilling their duties in their games during the day and hanging out together
in their neighboring arcade games at night. “Vanellope is lamenting the fact that her game
is getting a little boring,” says Johnston. “So, Ralph takes it upon himself to amplify the
excitement in Sugar Rush. And Ralph being Ralph—it doesn’t go exactly as planned.”
Ralph’s shenanigans trigger a chain of events that culminate with a player in the arcade
accidentally breaking the steering wheel off Vanellope’s game. When Litwak learns that a
replacement part would cost more than the game makes in a year, he has no choice but to
unplug Sugar Rush and sell it for parts. “The part they need to fix the game is at a place on
the internet called eBay,” says Pamela Ribon, who co-wrote the screenplay with Johnston.
“Ralph and Vanellope have never heard of the internet, much less eBay, but Litwak has
installed a router, so the arcade is actually online for the first time. They decide to take the
leap into this unknown world and travel to the internet in order to find the steering wheel
and save Vanellope’s game.
“The internet strikes them as loud, fast, crazy and completely unpredictable,” continues
Ribon. “Ralph is nervous and uncomfortable, and Vanellope is smitten, of course.”

BrightDay – Hangover Preventions

This is such a cute brand.  The outstanding packaging it comes in is worth it alone, but the nail polish color is just so cute and trendy. This is good enough to give as a gift if you can part with it.
Trust Fund Beauty – Nail Polish
20180812_102449.jpg
These are cute little samples of Grandpa soaps. I love the witch hazel which naturally clarifies your hair folicals and scalp. It has the faintest smell, ordinarily I like a fragrant shampoo, but this was ok.

Protein bars are sort if my arch nemesis.  Ive only met one brand that I liked, and sadly this isn’t it.  I love me some peanut butter, but the consistency on this is hard to swallow.  It might just be me being picky!

2018 Toyota C-HR XLE Review

2018 Toyota C-HR XLE

IMG_20180406_140602_952

Check out the all new C-HR by Toyota. What a cool looking car right? Immediately I felt like it was a car of the future,  especially with the back door handles higher up then normal,  made it feel like a “special” vehicle that I’d feel proud to ride around town in.

My kids,  my husband,  and I went to Medieval Times  over the weekend in Lyndhurst NJ and took the 1 hour ride in style with this beauty.

FB_IMG_1523194895208

It has everything you’d expect from a 2018 vehicle,  blind spot monitoring,  large LCD touch screen with bluetooth capability,  heated seating,  and more, although navigation does not come standard which is interesting.

One thing that I found unique that may be a Toyota brand thing (this is my first time with a Toyota) is the back up camera comes up on the rear view mirror as opposed to what I am used to which is on the large LCD screen.

20180406_133939.jpg

See how small it is? Personally I am not a fan of this for a few reasons.  The number one reason being the picture is very small and grainy and I don’t quite get the point of it being there instead of a much larger viewing screen.  The second thing is,  as a mom,  while driving I have enough distractions with the kids fighting over things in the back seat,  It’s defintely a distraction to have to look into the rear view mirror foot the back up camera,  and in the right side is the actual mirror which you can see out of the back, yes, but you also see little heads bopping around and hands flailing about.  I guess I don’t really see the point of it IN the rear view mirror. Anyone?

I found myself not even using it and struggling to see out of the accrual mirror instead along with the turn your head to see technique which the back windows make it very hard to see out of since they’re small due to design.

I guess that’s a price to pay for external beauty.  The vehicle itself shines no matter where you go because it is so different in its design.

I thought my kids would have a hard time opening the back doors themselves but once I told them where the door handle was (I admit, I let them struggle for a bit trying to figure out where it was #badmom) they were able to open it pretty easily.

20180406_132936(0).jpg

Can you find the back door handle? LOL!

The inside front is much smaller then my husband and I are used to with me having a full size explorer, but it is roomy enough to get comfortable in after. Also,  surprisingly The back seat is much roomier than you would think.

My stepfather wanted to go for a ride in the back seat with my youngest and he raved about how comfortable he was back there even though it’s a small sized crossover.

From the back it looks like a small hatch back, but looks can be deceiving.

These were better then I thought.  Ginger is really good for colds and coughs and has nutritional value but we seldom have it. These chews put it in a candy form,  but leave the nutrition and health benefits. Covered in confection sugar , these little individually packed chews aren’t so bad.

I always used to carry a tide-stick in my purse for on-the-go stain fighting super powers, but somehow I just stopped having one and I don’t remember why. . Maybe a villa super thief accidently pocketed it after asking to use it one day,  but I can’t be sure. What I can be sure of is how excited I was to find this earth friendly stain remover pen in the box this month!

I was excited to try these protein packed little snacks but it wasn’t as good as I thought.  Very light on flavor.
Kay’s Naturals – Sweet BBQ Snack Mix
20180307_132110
I was definitely not a fan of these.  Great concept of little power caffeine capsules available at your fingertips,  but the flavor was very odd. It says that it is wintergreen flavor,  which I did taste,  but there is an off aftertaste that tastes so powerfully like an artificial sweetener which I’m not a fan of.  If they can get the flavor right,  I’d definitely carry these little bad boys on me.
