Marvel’s AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Teaser Trailer & Poster! ~ #Avengers #AgeOfUltron

Yesssssss! Do you know how long I’ve been waiting for a glimpse at this film? Today is our lucky day! FINALLY there is a teaser trailer out for Marvel’s AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON! Plus this awesome poster was just released…
AvengersPosterIn case you caught the trailer last night, you’ll notice that we find our heroes feeling a little beat down over their latest adventures. We also meet the new villain, Ultron, a robot, commander of quite a brutal robot army. We also meet two new characters, twin siblings Pietro and Wanda Maximoff, also known as Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch! AND we FINALLY see Iron Man’s HULKBUSTER armor suit! (Yeah yeah yeah, I know, I’m a Marvel nerd!)

When Tony Stark jumpstarts a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as they battle to save the planet from destruction at the hands of the villainous Ultron.

And now the teaser….

Teaser Trailer

So now I just have to wait 7 months for the movie. The teaser was great and gave just the right amount of teasing (Why oh why is Captain America’s shield laying there all broken???). Can’t wait for the full length trailer, where hopefully we’ll get a look at a character who was missing from the teaser… The Vision!

Be sure to connect with the AVENGERS on Facebook and Twitter!

Marvel’s AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON will hit theaters everywhere on May 1st, 2015!

Special Look at Disney’s FEAST! ~ #Feast #BigHero6

FEASTLast month I posted a feature on Disney’s BIG HERO SIX! In the feature I chatted about Disney’s latest short FEAST. Today I’m offering you a special look at this adorable short film from director Patrick Osborne.

“Feast,” a new short from first-time director Patrick Osborne (head of animation for “Paperman”) and Walt Disney Animation Studios, is the story of one man’s love life as seen through the eyes of his best friend and dog, Winston, and revealed bite by bite through the meals they share.

Special Look at Feast

As I mentioned before, FEAST will open in theaters in front of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ new action-packed, big-screen adventure BIG HERO 6 on November 7th.

GoldPeakCoffeeImageSince my son started school in September, I feel like life has become even busier! As I’m already a single working mom, to say life is hectic is an understatement. Ever have those days where you feel like you can’t “catch up” or accomplish that list of errands? That’s every day for this momma!

Luckily, thanks to Gold Peak Coffee, I’m able to have moments where I can stop, appreciate life, and enjoy time with my family. To me nothing is more relaxing than being with my loved ones, while sipping on my favorite beverage, enjoying the warmth it provides.

GoldPeakI was first introduced to this particular brand of coffee back when they were Georgia Coffee. They’ve since re-branded as Gold Peak Coffee and is now available in new various markets all across the United States. They’ve definitely expanded their availability, which is great for a coffee lover like me.

LaundryBlissBadgeAs a busy working mom, my schedule is tight! Time is precious, and there are some days that I feel like my quality “me-time” or family time is dwindling. I’m always on the look out on how to efficiently save on time (and money!). One way I do this is by purchasing the best products (such as dish soap, medicines, laundry detergent) I can find that not only have a great value, but also actually WORK and get the job done. One of those brands is Purex!

Speaking of saving time… did you know Target now offers a service where you can order items online and then just pick them up at the store? Yes! No longer do you have to deal with long delivery times. Simply order your items, and once your Target has confirmed your order, simply head to the Guest Services desk that same day and pick up your items! This is especially convenient for me since I live right next to our local Target. Most of the time I’m passing it when I head home from work anyway.

Enjoy Family Fun with ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY ~ #VeryBadDay

AlexanderVeryBadDay1If you recall, over the summer I attended an amazing press trip thanks to Walt Disney Pictures! During my time out in Los Angeles, I was able to screen a wonderful family comedy that comes out this Friday… ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY!

Now I remember reading the book as a kid, so when I found out we would get to screen the film, I was super excited! I remember the book being so funny. Like many children’s book film adaptions, the film doesn’t stick to the book’s exact plot. That can be expected. The plot that the filmmakers came up with was absolutely, adorable, actually relatable, and full of fun and laughs!

The film centers around 11-year-old Alexander (played by Ed Oxenbould) and his family. Alexander experiences what he believes to be the most terrible and horrible day of his young life! We are talking tripping in front of his crush, gum stuck in his hair, and setting his science work on fire!

Alexander536d08e11de3bWhen Alexander tries to “vent” to his upbeat happy family about his day, he gets little sympathy. He goes to bed that night wishing that his family would experience a horrible day just like him…

Take Part in The Allstate Foundation’s Purple Purse Challenge! ~ #PurplePurse

Disclosure: This post is part of a sponsored campaign with The Allstate Foundation and MomSelect. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

purple purseToday I’m writing a post that I truly hope you take a moment to read and really let sink in. Reality is that domestic violence affects one in four women in her lifetime – that’s more women than breast cancer, ovarian cancer and lung cancer combined! It is very often that people think only of physical abuse when they consider domestic violence. This is not the case though. Domestic abuse comes in all forms including financial abuse, which happens in 98% of all cases of domestic violence and is one of the most powerful ways to keep a victim trapped. This is why it is so important today that I chat with you about the  Allstate Foundation’s Purple Purse Challenge!

Television and film actress and domestic violence activist, Kerry Washington, serves as an ambassador to help bring this program to the nation’s attention. She has designed an adorable limited-edition purple purse. I love that this purse will be distributed to help raise awareness. Additionally, The Allstate Foundation is producing 80,000 purple purse charms and tassels, which will be sent to Purple Purse challenge participants and agents!
Allstate PURPLE-PURSE 1How cute is it?? What a great way to attach one to your favorite purse as a sign of your support. It is very inspiring in that each tassel has a removable card featuring one of five survivor stories.
