Last weekend me and my girls were lucky enough to screen #MissingLink, a new film from LAIKA studios starring the voice talents of Hugh Jackman, Zoe Saldana and Zach Galifianakis. We are HUGE LAIKA fans, with Coraline being a favorite of ours, so we were really excited to see what LAIKA had in store for us. #MissingLink did not disappoint, we laughed our way through most of the film, which also had a ton of heart and of course a little bit of a life lesson thrown in for good measure. I’ll be very honest, a particular theme that stands out to me now is when there is a strong female character being represented and #MissingLink has that with Adelina, voiced by the phenomenal Zoe Saldana.Read More
Are you one of the millions that went to see Marvel Studios Captain Marvel? We got to see an advanced screening last week and by we, I mean my 10 year old daughter and I. Who else would be a better date for Captain Marvel? Of course I want to take my daughter to see a female superhero movie, but what we saw was so much more.Read More

What house do you belong to? Here’s a little known secret about me. I was officially sorted, by the Sorting Hat himself, into the house of Slytherin. Now, I would have liked to have disagreed, because I always felt more of a Gryffindor at heart. But, I must embrace what the hat says. So when Universal Studios Hollywood announced that the Dark Arts were taking over the lights at Hogwarts Castle, it kind of gave me the chills. I mean, the lights at Hogwarts ALWAYS gives me the chills. Whether it be the Nighttime lights, during the Summer or the beautiful Christmas version, it kind of takes my breath away every time. I can’t wait to see the Dark Arts take over!Read More
I don’t know about you, but we’ve been having a pretty Incredible month-long Halloween. Disney-Pixar’s The Incredibles 2 is now available for digital download and will be available on DVD/Blu-Ray on November 6th. One of my favorite things about Halloween is seeing all of the kids dressed up and I have a feeling this year there will be quite a few Incredible costumes. In fact, if you keep scrolling, you’ll get to see me as Edna! #Incredibles2Read More
One of my favorite things to do around Halloween is to fill the month up with as many Halloween themed movies as possible. My girls are still a little young for real scary movies, so family movies it is. Perfect timing for Hotel Transylvania 3 is now available both on Digital and Bluray/DVD. #HotelT3Read More
Just in time for Halloween, the perfect family friendly scary movie is here, in theaters now, and it’s so good.

Yeah, it was as cool as it sounds.Read More
What better way to celebrate Mexican Independence Day than with Los Tigres del Norte at the Hollywood Bowl?! Socio-political corrido pioneers Los Tigres del Norte will headline the Bowl’s first-ever concert dedicated to música norteña. They will perform with an orchestra, including all-star musicians from the Youth Orchestra Los Angeles (YOLA). Los Cachorros de Juan Villarreal and Los Cadetes de Linares de Los Primos Tijerina make it a star-studded norteño night.Read More
The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles is one of our favorite places to visit throughout the year. If you grew up in LA then you most likely visited either on your own or on a school field trip. One of the reasons why I love NHMLA so much is the constant exchanging of exhibits. You can always count on seeing some of the classics and witnessing something new. We recently attended a media preview for the newest exhibit, Wildlife Photographer of the Year.Read More
Ah you guys! The day is finally here! Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War is now officially on Digital, 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray! I remember the excitement back in March when I got to see the movie at the El Capitan Theater and thinking I could not wait to watch this at home, with some pizza, in my bed! Because there is literally no better way to watch a movie, than with pizza in your bed. Am I right?Read More
Are you ready for Christopher Robin? I wasn't sure if I was ready to see some of my favorite childhood characters come to life. I will tell you right now what made it work so well for me, the voices. The voices were spot on. The minute I heard Winnie the Poohs voice, I felt it in my heart. It was like being taken back to my childhood. It was like that every single time one of the characters first appeared. Hearing Eeyores gloomy voice as he floats down the river made me almost giddy. In case you were wondering, Eeyore is my favorite.Read More
Visiting the Hollywood Bowl during the Summer concert series is one of those things you kind of have to experience. Last year was my first visit to the Hollywood Bowl and I could not wait to come back this Summer. To make it an even more amazing experience, we attended the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire™ - in Concert featuring conductor Justin Freer and the incredible Los Angeles Philharmonic. If you are a Harry Potter fan, this is something you need to check out next Summer. Hearing Patrick Doyle’s unforgettable score live-to-picture is... magical.Read More

Yes, Maddalena, the restaurant at the San Antonio Winery is family friendly and the perfect spot for a Summer lunch or dinner.Read More
The long wait is over, the #Incredibles2 is now in theaters. For years and years every now and then my Dad would ask me, "When are they coming out with another Incredibles?" Well, now! It's out and what I loved about it, is it picked up right where the first one ended. Like no time at all has passed. Except 14 years ago when the first one came out, I was a teenager. This past weekend I took my daughters to see Incredibles 2 at an early screening at the El Capitan Theater.Read More
