MommyParties Sponsored by Pregnancy 2.0

First of all a huge thank you to MommyParties for choosing me to host this awesome MommyParty sponsored by Pregnancy 2.0! This couldn't have came to me at a better time. As you can see I am now expecting my second child and I am one of the many pregos in my group of friends. I was so thrilled to be able to share all of these great items and info with them. There were several items for us to play with so we had lots of fun!




First item we reviewed was the Britax B-Safe Infant Car Seat. The guests took it out of the box, disconnected the seat from the base which was very easy, and carried it around and realized how light and easy this car seat was compared to other car seats on the market.


Weight capacity accommodates from 4-30 pounds and up to 32 inches.

Side Impact Protection distributes crash forces, shields from vehicle intrusion, and contains the head and body.

Tangle-Free, Five-Point Harness distributes crash forces across the strongest parts of the body and provides a secure fit.

Four Harness Heights and Two Buckle Positions for your growing child.

Integrated CLICK & GO adapter system works with Britax B-Series Strollers

MSRP $179.99

Second item we reviewed was the Britax B-Agile Stroller. During the party we took out the stroller, put it together according to the easy to follow directions, attached the Click & Go adaptors and attached the the B-Safe infant car seat.


Weight Capacity accommodates from birth up to 55 pounds.

One-Hand, Quick Fold with automatic chassis lock.

Travel System Compatible with other major infant car seat brands, including Graco, Chicco, and Peg Perego, when used with Britax infant car seat adapter (sold separately).

Lightweight aluminum frame- 16.5 lbs total weight.

No re-thread - adjustable, five-point harness and head pad with reflective binding.

MSRP $249.99

Next item we reviewed was the Britax Award-Winning Baby Carrier. We took it out of the box and put it on. This carrier was so easy and everyone agreed it was very comfortable to wear. The **seat extender makes it even nicer cause we felt like it gave the baby better support on baby's bottom.


• Weight Capacity accommodates infants from 8 pounds to toddlers up to 32 pounds.

• CarryLong System with padded waist belt and shoulder straps, distributes weight across shoulders, back and hips for maximum extended wear comfort.

• Removable Infant Insert ensures a comfortable, natural sitting position for smaller babies.

• Multiple Carrying Positions offer parent versatility to face baby inward or outward.

• Simple Slip On & Off Design makes use quick and effortless.

MSRP $129.99-$139.99

**The seat extender insert can be used with the Britax Baby Carrier once your child no longer requires use of the infant insert. The seat extender insert is a removable support that provides a wider seating area by cradling your baby's bottom and thighs, which allows your child to wrap or splay their legs around your waist when facing inward through the entire use of the carrier. This supports a wide, spread squatting position for your child and enhanced longer-wearing comfort for you through balanced weight distribution.

MSRP $24.99





Next item we reviewed was the BabyPlus Prenatal Education System. The BabyPlus is designed to strengthen your baby's development with patented, scientifically designed audio lessons. Created by a developmental psychologist, the simple and safe system introduces natural, rhythmic sounds to your prenatal child. This auditory exercise unlocks your baby's potential as he or she learns to differentiate the progressive patterns of BabyPlus from the mother's heartbeat. Just encourages strong cognitive development, giving your newborn a head start with benefits that will last a lifetime.


Since I am now expecting I did the honor of trying out the BabyPlus. From all the information BabyPlus has provided I am very interested in seeing how the results will be once our little bundle of joy is born!

We also received lots of goodies for all the guests including the following:
Spry Gum
Kid's Xclear Saline Nasal Spray with Xylitol
Kid's Spry Tooth Gel
Xclear coupons and brochures
Rashti & Rashti Snuggle Buddies

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ magical classic “Beauty and the Beast” returns to the big screen in Disney Digital 3D™, introducing a whole new generation to the Disney classic with stunning new 3D imagery. The film captures the fantastic journey of Belle (voice of Paige O’Hara), a bright and beautiful young woman who’s taken prisoner by a hideous beast (voice of Robby Benson) in his castle. Despite her precarious situation, Belle befriends the castle’s enchanted staff—a teapot, a candelabra and a mantel clock, among others—and ultimately learns to see beneath the Beast’s exterior to discover the heart and soul of a prince.

Featuring unforgettable music by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, and an enormously talented vocal ensemble, “Beauty and the Beast” was the first animated feature to receive a Best Picture nomination from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

·The film was nominated for six Academy Awards®, winning Oscars® for Best Song, by the renowned Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, and Best Original Score (Menken).

·“Beauty and the Beast” was the first animated feature to cross the $100 million plateau in its initial release.

•Alan Menken has been nominated by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences 15 times with seven wins. Prior to his death in 1991, Howard Ashman received six Oscar® nominations with two wins.

•Three years after the film’s debut, “Beauty and the Beast” hit Broadway. The musical opened at the Palace Theatre and ran in New York for 5,464 performances between 1994 and 2007, becoming the eighth-longest running production.

The Muppets Movie Review

The Muppets are back in theaters and are better than ever. My son and I had the opportunity to attend a screening this past weekend and I must say it was wonderful! I grew up with the Muppets and so has my son so we both enjoyed the movie although I think I enjoyed it just a tad bit more :) There was singing there was dancing this movie had it all! And most of all it had a cute green frog named Kermit.

The Muppets is out in theaters today so what are you waiting for get the family together and enjoy this holiday season with The Muppets!

Here are a few clips for you to enjoy...








Synopsis:
On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world's biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets' former stomping grounds. To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate. With secret, signature, celebrity cameos.

Rated:
PG

The Muppets Saga

With The Muppets hitting theaters tomorrow and all this talk about Twilight Breaking Dawn I thought these were just perfect and had to share!




***Disclosure - Informational post only. No compensation received.

Animal's Five Rules of Cool

In Disney’s THE MUPPETS (in theatres everywhere this Thanksgiving!) Animal is enrolled in an anger management class. But with help from the Muppets, he has achieved personal & artistic balance. Now, Animal helps you find your inner Animal with ANIMAL’S FIVE RULES OF COOL: A guide to life from Drummer, Rock Icon, Force of Nature and Anger Management Graduate!


· LIVE LOUD!!!! – Anything worth doing is worth doing at high-decibel. Whether it’s playing drums, singing, expressing your opinion or simply wearing a really loud sports coat, this is a surefire way to make sure the world knows who you are, where you are and in which direction you’re headed.

· EAT NOW! – There are those who believe it is important to “stay hungry” in life, to put off rewards and defer gratification. Animal is not one of those. He devours life—literally—which goes a long way towards explaining his mealtime nickname: the Appetite with Legs.

· FRIENDS! – Good friends watch your back, take care of you and always follow your beat. With his band mates in the Electric Mayhem, Animal has found kindred spirits. (Oh sure, sometimes they yank his chain, but that’s only to make sure he doesn’t miss the tour bus.)

· ROMANCE! – Animal is not much for subtlety when it comes to finding romance. His idea of flirtatious small talk usually consists of the phrase “WOMAN! WOMAN!” But it works…for him. As for you, may we suggest finding a slightly less assertive approach to finding love.

· NICE BUNNY! – Everyone needs a sense of security, a quiet space where they can find peace. For Animal, it’s time well spent with his bunny, whose name is “Nice Bunny.” For you, it can be anything from soaking in pond scum (Kermit) to wearing tapioca-filled tap shoes (Gonzo). Wherever you find it, embrace your bliss. Just don’t squeeze too hard.

CoverGirl Hits the AMA's Red Carpet

COVERGIRL spokesperson Taylor Swift won the biggest award of the night, Artist of the Year! She wore a Reem Acra dress and COVERGIRL’s NatureLuxe Silk Foundation for her popular soft natural look created by Lorrie Turk.



Taylor Swift’s look at the AMA’s by makeup artist, Lorrie Turk

· The American Music Awards Show itself was the inspiration for Taylor's look. I wanted to reflect the youthful, fun vibe of this event.
· With a foundation brush, I smoothed CoverGirl's Natureluxe Silk Foundation onto her skin followed by a dab of concealer on the inner corners of her eyes. I applied the concealer with the tip of my ring finger in a patting motion. CG TruBlend Minerals Blush in Shimmering Sands was used along the cheekbones to add highlight and color.
· With a dampened eyeshadow brush, I brushed on COVERGIRL Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadow in Tapestry Taupe from her lash line to just above her crease and blended that in an up and outward motion. On the innermost corners of her eyes, I applied COVERGIRL Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadow in Snow blossom with a small damp brush to brighten and highlight her eyes. I lined just the tops on her lash line with a very thin line using COVERGIRL LineExact Liquid Liner in Very Black. I finished her eyes by applying a couple of coats of COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara in Very Black to her upper and lower lashes.
· I applied COVERGIRL ShineBlast Lipgloss in Dazzle directly from the applicator wand and then put it in her purse for any possible touchups later in the evening.

In addition, COVERGIRL had the honor of teaming up with Katy Perry’s makeup artist, Jake Bailey, for her unique look. Katy, wearing Vivienne Westwood on the red carpet, was awarded a special AMA for having five #1 singles in 1 album. Congrats to both of these beautiful young talented ladies on behalf of COVERGIRL! Below you will find the details on how their glam looks were achieved using COVERGIRL’s latest along with official photos attached.


Katy Perry’s look at the AMA’s by makeup artist, Jake Bailey

· I wanted to do a sophisticated twist on the "classic Katy" look to complement the Vivienne Westwood couture dress. We went extra dramatic with the signature liquid liner and lashes and went for a coral (orangey) red as opposed to a classic red to pick up on some accents in the dress.
· I perfected her skin by buffing a liquid foundation onto her skin using a large kabuki brush and set it with a dusting of Guerlain's Les Viollettes loose powder. I warmed her complexion with a tawny blush from nars called "madly" and swirled a tiny bit of a coral shimmer blush called "orgasm"...also from Nars on the apples of her cheeks for a little extra glow.
· I elongated her eyes using a liquid liner marker from Le Metier. Then, I applied 2 sets of strip lashes and coated them with 2 coats of COVERGIRL LashBlast 24HR mascara (available in January!). This is an extra rich formula that lasts forever. I've been using this on all my clients for red carpets lately since I can’t always be with them for touch ups. I lined her lower lashline with COVERGIRL LiquilineBlast eyeliner in "violet voltage" I softened it by blending it out with a small shadow brush.
· I used a bright coral red, COVERGIRL LipPerfection lipcolor in "flame". This was the perfect color to pick up on the dresses coral accents and complemented her pink hair :) I had Katy apply the lipstick directly from the tube and I refined the edges using a small lipstick brush.
