Going over the master list of who's enrolling in #MonstersU

My fondness for Monsters Inc. is well known. The affectionate, funny, and personable blue and green duo Mike and Sulley is about to return in Disney Pixar's Monsters University. Have you seen the new enrolees into #MonstersU? I've heard that we have some of Hollywood's top stars in this year's class.

Softness to share! US/CAN 05/03 #MissionGiveaway #PayItForward

Mission Giveaway
I love my Woolzies, they're what I turn to when I do my laundry. The only thing I have trouble with is the pups thinking they're their toys! Once I regain possession of my Woolzies though, they do a great job saving me time and money with my clothes drying. So this week's Mission Giveaway brings you a little closer to that eco-friendly lifestyle that also saves you $$$!

Sweet new #trailers for #LoneRanger, #IronMan3, and #Thor

I'm getting pretty psyched for a few movies this year. Can you blame me? What are you looking forward to watching most this year? Here are a few of my most anticipated action/adventure, hero films that of course, come out after Iron Man 3 in May. There's nothing like awesome trailers to pass time.

#MagicPrints and more #Hallmark choices for #MothersDay #GiftGuide US 5/4

Now that I've got a great gift for Mother's Day, I have a dilemma with Mother's Day cards. Why? Because I now also have a great assortment of cards to go with it and it's just so hard to choose! Hallmark has some fab Mother's Day cards this year and some of them incorporate their new product, Magic Prints. I fell in love with them and I may just have the pups make me a Mother's Day gift from it.

Saving money on spring cleaning #springcleaning US 05/06

With Spring comes a part I’ve never liked...it is what’s known as Spring Cleaning. Added to that, I’m moving so it’s even more cleaning and effort than I’d like. The amount of laundry seems never ending and the neighbors often see me lugging 3 bagfuls of laundry to the laundry room. Added to that is my trusty Tide bottle. By itself, it’s fine but when I’m also trying to maneuver 3 full bags of laundry, it gets tough.

My favorite #history film of 2012...#Dreamworks #Lincoln

I now have a movie that depicts fascinating history in my own hands. Yes, it was interesting. Seemingly perfect was the trailer for War Horse as the preview to the movie. I bawled in War Horse, another moving film based off a true story. I actually bawled so much, people on the plane started staring at me wondering what was wrong. I bawled again when I watched it with the hubby. That just goes to say how much Steven Spielberg can move the soul.

Cuddly brown bears coming to a theater near you! #DisneyNatureBears

Disneynature Bears
You all know I'm an animal lover! So, it's not really a surprise to anyone that I'd be intrigued with Disneynature's newest venture in Bears. I have quite a fondness for brown bears and BabyPom often looks like a baby bear! So, I'm really looking forward to this new film from Disneynature.

Getting my day back on track with #MyUrgentRx #CBias

I'm at crossroads in life. Instead of enjoying a laid back, relaxed honeymoon, I'm scurrying around trying to sort things out because I move in less than a week. There's so much to do in so little time. It's things that have to be done. When I overwork myself, I tend to develop headaches and it sucks. There's nothing like trying to get work done and have your head feel like it's about to blow.

Transport your home to #Paris with these #recipes and a tour

Paris is one of my favorite travel destinations, with the mood, the gorgeous architecture, and of course, the food! It's a place I'll visit again eventually. Since I can't make it there anytime soon though, I figured I'd take you there in spirit.

All in a day's work: #AllergyFace Makeover and then McWrapping it with Novak #UnwrapNYC

I've been super busy lately but just the other week, I got to unwind a little. Ah, the joys of being pampered. It's been almost a year since BlogHer, the last time I got my make-up done by specialists. It wasn't the only reason I was there though. I was out to grab you Spring Beauty Tips!

Does OraMD really chase away bad breath? #health

I'm always up for trying new items for breath maintenance. Well, it's a hygiene thing and also because I have chronic sinusitis so it sometimes gets bad. Worst part is that I don't notice it. OraMD is a 100% natural and pure liquid toothpaste, mouthwash and breath freshener in one. They also say that it has ingredients to kill the 22 harmful bacteria that lead to gum disease and other oral health problems. All you need is 2-5 drops each time.

It was a star studded week. We saw Richard Simmons when we were waiting to pick up family at the airport! Then in Times Square, guess who we saw when I was with taking the family around town. Here's your hint...the person is a big part of Disney's Planes!!

#Regulat'ing my immune system? #health

I'm on a health spree lately. Have you figured it out? However, I have a question for you. How far would you go for health? Do you believe what companies tell you or do you do a bit of side research to find credibility in their study.

Reaching within to find my artistic side with #ArtSee Studio

I learnt something new a couple weeks ago. I have the coloring skills of a two-year-old. I had a hell of a time while learning it though and I'm sure others will too, especially the little ones. I'm talking about Artsee Studio, WowWee's newest toy that pairs with your iPad.

Toobs of fun, #Dinosaurs, and more for all! US 4/18

authentic miniature replicas
I had heard of Safari Ltd. before, seen the products online, but I had never actually seen one up close. It wasn't until Toy Fair this year that I learnt each and every piece was hand-painted. That means every finished product is unique. Safari Ltd. has long developed partnerships with the Carnegie Museum of Natural History amongst others to bring to kids and adults alike perfect to scale replicas of dinosaurs.

An easy way to #save energy & money in your home!

Electricity always seems to be a big bill regardless of season. During the summer though, it's particularly high when we crank on the a/c. How do you save energy? We love using energy saving lightbulbs where we can.
