Enter to #win Aftershokz BLUEZ 2S Wireless Bone Conduction Headphones | #Giveaway

Disclosure: I was not compensated. Giveaway prize fulfilled by sponsor.

Aftershokz BLUEZ 2S™ Wireless Bone Conduction Headphones
Sponsor: Aftershokz
What are Bone Conduction Headphones?
Bone conduction is a natural part of the hearing process. Sound travels through the bones and eardrums simultaneously and these headphone transducers guide the mini vibrations through the cheekbones and directly to the inner ears. That makes these an open fit so you are not tuned out to the world while still enjoying quality sounds of music or your phone calls. These headphones uses Premium Pitch+™ technology meaning you get dynamic sounds for your music and crystal clear voice calls. This is accomplished by the addition of a second alloy spring in the ear piece to increase dynamic range and bass.
For voice calls you get dual microphones to enhance speech and suppress noise. It is also sweat proof with its extra layer of housing in the band. The power button is raised and volume controls are larger than standard for easy control.

P!nk Partners with Disney’s Alice Through The Looking Glass + The New Poster | #DisneyAlice

I remember seeing P!nk way back when she toured with *NSYNC – yes, I loved (OK still love) them and I may have seen them perform in 10+ states but hey, we are getting off track here. The bottom line is I have seen P!nk perform live several times and she is just incredible. I love her stuff and will be a fan of hers for life. So of course when I found out that she was partnering with Disney’s Alice Through The Looking Glass, I was thrilled! I loved the first movie and have been dying to see this one since it was announced. Johnny Depp is incredible as the Mad Hatter (when is he not incredible?) and the footage that I saw at the D23 Expo made me even more excited for it. He is going to be more or less the main focus of this movie and I for one, cannot wait for it. Watch the video below (and check out the brand new poster above!) and just try to tell me that you are not excited about it too – you won’t be able to. I love that Sacha Baron Cohen is joining the cast. He is a brilliant actor! Read on to learn more about P!nk’s contribution to the film.

Why Brad Paisley is the Best Concert You Will Ever See | #BradPaisley

You may not know this about me, but I am a huge country music fan. In college and immediately after graduating I worked at a couple of different radio stations on the promotions team. It was always a good time and I loved being able to see the other side of artists that you don’t see on stage. One of my favorite people to meet was Brad Paisley. He was a total sweetheart and down to Earth. Just a normal guy. He has always been one of my favorite artists because I think he is incredibly talented. When I met my husband he really didn’t know much about Brad, but I played his music for him and then took him to a concert. Now, he isn’t a huge country fan, but he still says Brad Paisley is one of the best concerts he has ever been to. If you don’t know who he is (you must live under a rock) look him up and go check him out. He is currently touring (Crushin’ It World Tour) and he has lots of dates coming up in 2016. Read on about why Brad puts on the best concert you will ever see – and then check out his upcoming tour dates here – you will thank me!

Brand New Music Video for Shakira’s “Try Everything” from #Zootopia | #Disney

If you follow me on social media, than you probably saw the brand new Shakira music video for “Try Everything” that I posted yesterday. I am a little bit obsessed with it and already watched it several times. It is from Disney’s upcoming movie Zootopia, which hits theaters nationwide on March 4, 2016. That very same day, Walt Disney Records will release the soundtrack to Zootopia – so be sure to grab it. The “Try Everything” single is available now at digital retail (click here to get it). In Zootopia, Shakira will be playing beloved superstar, Gazelle. “Try Everything” is an all new and original song written by singer-songwriter Sia and songwriting duo Stargate – just for Zootopia! Shakira is a Grammy winner – and I cannot wait to see her in Zootopia. The film looks hilarious, fantastic – and it is from Disney so you know it is going to be amazing. I cannot wait to take my girls opening weekend! Watch the music video below – and let me know what you think!

Take the Family to a Symphoria Performance this Season | #Giveaway #CNY #Syracuse

I love going with my family to special events. We enjoy going to concerts, shows, and other cultural and local arts performances. Now that the girls are getting a little bit older, we can do a lot more with them. My husband and I have always looked forward to these types of outings and now they are starting to as well. So when I hears about Symphoria (a fully professional orchestra serving Syracuse and Central New York), I was pretty excited! I didn’t know there was something so amazing so close.

Disney in Concert: A Silly Symphony Celebration at #D23Expo

While at the D23 Expo, we had the chance to attend Disney in Concert: A Silly Symphony Celebration. I had really been looking forward to this the entire trip because I love the Silly Symphony cartoons. I grew up watching them because my mom loved them so much. They are a fond memory for me and I always thought they were so much fun. This event was hosted by film historian Leonard Maltin and it was incredible to attend. Silly Symphony shorts were played on large screens as a 32 piece orchestra accompanied them with their original soundtracks. The precision was amazing. The orchestra had to be on point in order to accompany the cartoons so well – and they were. I especially loved watching the man who was making the fun sounds like ducks quacking. It was very entertaining to see up close and personal. The music was performed as it would have been recorded during those historic days at the Disney Studios on Hyperion Avenue in the 1920s and ’30s. Just knowing that gave me chills while watching it. Many of the 75 Silly Symphony shorts were performed, but my favorites included Three Little Pigs, The Old Mill, The Ugly Duckling, and of course, The Skeleton Dance. I also really enjoyed learning a bit more about Walt and seeing him talk about the different shorts we were about to watch.
