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.”

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

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!

Bendy and the Ink Machine Birthday Party

20180421_124403.jpg

Anyone else have a child who picks the most odd themes that they want for their birthday party?

My son dropped on me that he really wants to have a Bendy and the Ink Machine birthday party in our yard this year for his birthday next month.  And guess what,  there aren’t any party supplies at all for it at retail stores.

I know that he loves it,  and he watches the videos on you tube,  so guess what? This mommy has to do what mommy has to do to make it happen! Make it!

I decided to do like I did last year when he wanted to have a Five Nights at Freddy’s themed party and the were limited decorations to choose from.  Large cardboard cut outs! Very simple and the best part,  the kids can do most of the work. It isn’t child labor if they request to do it right??!? LOL. Just kidding.  He was so excited to get to work on it.

20180421_130140

The first step we did was getting the images to print out in a larger then one paper format. We used a free site called blockposters.com which helps you convert the images easily to multiple pages to create a poster.

Then we cut each piece of paper out and organized them together. 20180421_091641.jpg

Look how great my little boy was doing. Yes, he really did this all himself!

Then, we used anything we had around the house that can act as a sturdy back for the image. We had one piece of a gift box,  and some previously used shipping boxes that we cut to lay flat.

20180421_120605

Then you just glue each piece on order,  let them dry, and cut them out on the box.  We also cut eyes holes out so that the kids can use them as masks.

For the happy birthday banner,  I used my cricut explore and downloaded the banner file I liked for .99 cents.

I already had some cool vintage looking card stock on hand so it worked perfectly for this theme.

Also,  to make it more fit the theme, I printed some of the images I found online of the characters and cut them on sticker paper that you can get at any craft store.

I have added the Bendy & The Ink Machine Birthday Party Invitation to my Etsy Store if you’d like to order! Digital File will be personalized for you! Click the image below!

It was a little time consuming,  but fun to put together.

Here are some pictures of the FNAF them cutouts and party we did last year!

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!
Sun & Earth – Stain Remover Pen

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.
GoViter – Viter Energy Mints

2018 Mazda 3 Vehicle Review

November 2018 was the 2017 NYC Play Fair  and I had to ride in style so #Mazda  hooked me up with this hotrod to take on the voyage across state lines. Ok, ok.. it’s only a 45 minute trip into NYC depending on traffic but I wanted that “dramatic” feel haha! And boy did they hook me up!

20171102_175622.jpg

I feel like I need to start by introducing you to the safety features of this fine beauty called the 2018 Mazda3.

As a mother of 2 boys, I live and breathe what is best for them and my family,  and being that we are in and out of it alot,  my car isn’t a choice I take lightly.

2018 Mazda Mazda3 Safety Features

  • Driver Air Bag
  • Passenger Air Bag
  • Front Head Air Bag
  • Rear Head Air Bag
  • Front Side Air Bag
  • 4-Wheel ABS
  • 4-Wheel Disc Brakes
  • Brake Assist
  • Electronic Stability Control
  • Daytime Running Lights
  • Child Safety Locks
  • Integrated Turn Signal Mirrors
  • Traction Control
  • Blind Spot Monitor
  • Cross-Traffic Alert

In addition to all of the important features listed above, you can turn on the car length guide that shows you if you’re tailgating the car in front of you which I find extremely useful.  You know us NJ drivers need to get where we’re going quickly and sometimes don’t notice we are tailgating until our husband’s yell at us (LOL!).

The interior of the 2018 Mazda3 is breathtaking.  They hit the nail on the head with this ivory and black combination interior… I mean just look at how stunning this looks.  Would you believe the 2018 starts at just under 20K??

20171102_175804.jpg

This model came with a sunroof which i l love to keep the window closed but the screen open. Makes November seem like Spring time letting the sun in… when there is sun…

20171102_175820

20171102_175826.jpg

The heated seats, both driver and passenger are a huge bonus and to top it off, a heated steering wheel! ALWAYS GO WITH THE HEATED STEERING WHEEL! You can thank me later.

20171102_175759.jpg

20171102_175810.jpg

20171102_175749

The interface leaves a little to be desired in my opinion as they artyl haven’t gotten it right.  It’s 2018 and there isn’t a standard navigation package in this model which I found a bit odd with how luxurious everything else was.

Alao,  getting used to the center console controls takes a little but,  but once you get used to it,  it’s fine.

20171103_172134.jpg

Now onto the exterior. What more can I say,  such a stylish,  family friendly vehicle that works it in all the right places.

Check out this beauty in pearl white with aluminum alloy rims, halogen lights and sleek windows. Did I mention the grill is A-Maz-ingly intimidating yet beautiful? Zoom-Zoom!

See for yourself what the fus is about…

The trunk folds down into the 2nd row for sects space if needed,  but even without doing that I wad amazed at how easily I fit my weekly HUGE grocery trip into it no problem.

Bookroo Monthly Childrens Book Subscription Review

20171126_174445

We are no strangers to Bookroo’s monthly subscription program.  In fact,  my son remembers how fun it was to unveil the books the last time he got a shipment,  check out my previous post from a couple years back.

This is a great gift idea for little ones and older kids as well.  They have board books as well as paperback and all are quality books worth every penny of the monthly fee you will be paying for them.  The wrapping paper that they come wrapped in is worth that much alone!

Imagine the faces one the kids wheb they get their monthly package in the mail with two books to unwrap.  Just watch my 5 year olds reaction to the “gifts” he got!

What’s even better is the fact that this makes him want to try reading and creates an excitement around the possibility of books.  Personally,  we have so many books that I like to donate books when we are done with them, but these we tend to keep because they’re special!

Right now they have a GREAT Cyber Monday deal going on for 25% off you order by tomorrow 11/27!

BFJERSEY for 25% off any multi-month subscription (3,6, or 12 months)
One redemption per family. Valid for new customers only. Existing customers may use for the purchase of one gift subscription.
Valid 11/24 – midnight PST 11/27

Lately I’ve been on sort of a health kick.. I am part of a bootcamp training facility that I go to daily at 5am, I am walking a mike a day on my lunch break at work and eating more consciously. I’ve been getting a little into essential oils and using my oil diffuser while i take a shower or a relaxing bath with a bath fizz and some eucalyptus scented Epsom salt to help ease my sore muscles and dry skin.

It also helps me to wind down from the day and just clear my mind. My kids have also used the eucalyptus to help with allergies and sinus issues, I just prop the diffuser in their room and they’re good to go after a couple hours relaxing with it filling the room with aromas.

With that being said, I want to give my opinion on a lesser known mom and pop store in my home town of Staten Island (I love saying I was born on an island because it’s true haha).

20170601_204147.jpg

Www.Relaxbehealthy.com sent me a few items to check out and i have to say I’m really loving them. I haven’t had much experience with essential oil water sprays but these probably take the cake of i had to guess from what i see with their essential oils.

All of their products are organic and hand made in their shop with imported products from around the world.  The items in reviewing are made from raw materials from Bulgaria and are the real deal.

20170602_072647

First up to the plate is the Lavender Water. It’s a 4oz misting spray and is $10.99. It has a scent of lavender just a bit lighter then the oil,  and is a super soft delicate mist.

20170601_203159

All natural Bulgarian organic  Lavender water:

Use to soothe skin, used for redness of soon, eczema, inflammation caused by mosquito bites (must try this!), and acne. It also helps eradicate dandruff and prevent scalp infections.

When sprayed directly only hair,  it helps make hair shiny as it conditions the hair.

You can use the water spray as deodorant for your body,  or even spray on furniture and around the home to deodorize.

There are many other different uses for lavender you can experiment with.

Now this Rose Water is my absolute favorite.  They captured such am amazing scent I could wear it as a body must and probably will! Also $10.99 at their store, I wish you could smell it through this post,  but if you do order from them, I suggest you put this in your cart.

20170602_072702

All natural organic Bulgarian Rose Water:

It can help reduce the redness of irritated skin, get rid of acne, helps to maintain the skin’s PH balance, helps to hydrate the skin, helps to aid healing scars, cuts, wounds, regenerate skin tissues, dermatitis and eczema. It is a great cleanser and aids in removing oil and dirt accumulated in clogged pores, helps aging skin, wrinkles and fine lines

20170601_203212

Extra fun uses include mood enhancer and spray the scent on your pillow to help to sleep better.

Enhance the quality of hair. Helps to rid dandruff, natural conditioner.

For dry & frizzy hair: Mix equal parts rosewater and glycerin, apply on the scalp, massage for 10-15 minutes. Let it stay for another 30 minutes and wash off with shampoo.

Last but not least is their 20ml Lavender Oil that retails for $24.99 but is currently on sale for $21.99 At their online boutique.  This little potent bottle is much more fragrant then any other essential oil I’ve gotten and you can tell it’s just so fresh and pure. Check out my video below to see what i compared it to.

Today, lavender oil benefits your body in the following ways:
  • Reduces anxiety and emotional stress.
  • Heals burns and wounds.
  • Improves sleep.
  • Restores skin complexion and reduces acne.
