Disney’s Adventures In Babysitting Now on DVD

Monday night I was reminded of one of my favourite movies as a kid. It was modernized and updated for today’s youth but there were just enough subtle reminders of the original movie throughout to help us ‘oldies’ still feel the nostalgic. In case you missed it I’m talking about the 80’s classic Adventures In

The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar – #Review #Disney

One of my absolute favourite Disney movies was always The Lion King. I love all the songs and can sing every one of them. And of course, the banter between Timone and Pumba was hilarious. I’ve seen the movie at least 100 times and I wish I had it on DVD but I only have

I’m Happy For You {Sort of…Not Really} #HydrateForTheHolidays #giveaway

Tired of performing? Feeling weighed down by the pressure to be Pinteresting? Does your friend’s wardrobe, body, marriage, paycheck, vacation plans, or photoshoot-worthy home décor leave you wishing your life looked more like that?
You’re not alone.
With its focus on smarter, faster, thinner, and ever-better, our cultural obsession with comparison is undercutting relationships and sapping contentment. Our friends become our audience (or judges), and our titles, activities, even kids become part of our brand. Factor in social media’s constant reminder of what everyone else is doing, and no wonder we feel drained, discontent, and isolated.
Thankfully, we don’t have to live this way!
The book title says it all!!
