Celebrate International Women’s Day with a She-Ra Party!

Something I have always thought was very important is female empowerment. I have two young daughters and my husband and I have worked hard to show them that they are strong and can do anything they want to do. One show that really reinforces this is She-Ra and the Princesses of Power from DreamWorks Animation on Netflix. It is They both fell in love with it from the moment we started watching it. This show is so great for young girls because they see that females can be the heroes. I decided to put together a party to celebrate International Women’s Day (March 8th) for my girls and a few of their friends. Of course our theme centered around She-Ra and the other Princesses.

Disney Junior Dance Party Review: Did We Love It As Much As Disney Junior LIVE?!

I have two young daughters, so one of our favorite things when visiting Disney World was always the Disney Junior LIVE! show at Hollywood Studios. This is now gone, but it has been replaced with the NEW Disney Junior Dance Party. During our last visit, we decided to check it out. We loved how interactive this show was, although we did miss Sofia the First and Jake, who are not in this show. That being said, some of our favorites have been added like Vampirina and Timon.

NEW The Incredibles Instagram Walls at Hollywood Studios Walt Disney World

I travel to Walt Disney World at least twice a year because we are Disney Vacation Club members. One of my favorite things to do is search the parks for new things that have appeared since the last time I was there. So imagine how excited I was when I turned a corner in Hollywood Studios to see a whole The Incredibles themed area! Now, I am a HUGE Incredibles fan, and I even went to Pixar last year to get a behind the scenes look at the making of the latest film.

How To Eat Keto and Low-Carb on a Disney Cruise

If you have been following my blog and social media at all, you know I have been living the low carb and keto lifestyle for about a year now. Yes, I cheat here and there, but I pretty much stay on track. So when my family and I went on a Disney Cruise I knew I had to make keto work for me. It was actually a lot easier than I expected. Sure I had a milkshake or a dessert here and there, but I didn’t binge out on them. And if you wanted to stay strictly keto while onboard, Disney is very accommodating.

Is the Express Pass Worth It When Visiting Universal Studios Hollywood?

I recently took a trip with some friends of mine to check out Universal Studios Hollywood. We had so much fun – largely in part to the Express Pass. This allowed us to take our time and not stress about running from ride to ride to make sure we got them all in. I have had several friends and family ask me if purchasing an Express Pass is worth it when visiting – and my answer is YES! So worth it! And here is why.

4 Reasons Why The Disneyland MaxPass Is SO Worth It!

You guys probably already know that I am a Disney Vacation Club member. I have mastered the FastPass+ at Walt Disney World even getting 16 FastPasses over 3 parks in one day before.

Hands down. And here is why!

Disney On Ice presents Worlds of Enchantment Is Coming To Syracuse: Win Tickets Here!

My family has had a tradition of going to see Disney on Ice yearly for quite a while now. I used to go as a child and it is some of my fondest memories. So as soon as I had kids, I knew this was going to be something we were going to do whenever it comes to town. My girls have been loving it, and look forward to the winter because we know that is when Disney on Ice comes. This year the show is Disney On Ice presents Worlds of Enchantment – and we get to bring one of their friends to opening night! They can’t wait!
