Interviewing Cinderella Director Kenneth Branagh #CinderellaEvent

Richard Branagh, Cinderella. CinderellaEvent

I think that my #CinderellaEvent weekend was better than any other weekend this year. Not because I got to see Cinderella and walk the red carpet premiere. Not because I went to a Glam Ball and got invited to a pre-reception. I mean those happen every weekend right? I am joking. Those things rocked my socks and I am still shocked that I was able to do so much in so little time. My weekend was better because I got to meet Kenneth Branagh, who on top of being insanely attractive, is the director of Cinderella. He is also the director of a little known … [Read more...]

BeanBox Coffee Subscription Service- affordable gourmet coffee straight to your door!


I rarely rave about things, but this is going to be one of those rare occasions.

Talking with Cinderella – Lily James Interview #CinderellaEvent

Lily James, Cinderella

 I was invited on an expenses paid trip to LA by Disney to cover the #CinderellaEvent in exchange for my posts of the trip experiences.

Not saying every girl wants to be a princess and every boy a prince because that is blatantly untrue but there is something about the magic of Disney especially movies like Cinderella. A movie where you can change your fate by being kind and generous. When Lily James walked into the … [Read more...]

Portobello and Broccoli Black Bean Burger- Vegan and Gluten Free options!

meatless monday, vegan, gluten free,

Sometimes I'm in a burger mood but I don't really want to have a meat-style burger. Sometimes I want VEGETABLES. Black beans make a really good base for a wide variety of homemade vegetarian burgers so that's the first thing my mind jumped to. In terms of vegetables, I wanted to use what I had on hand, which were onions and broccoli. Served on a fresh soft white or whole wheat bun, this is a great way to get some veggies and fiber into your day without added fat, and you really get the flavors of a traditional burger with the seasonings. And it … [Read more...]

Walking the Cinderella Red Carpet Premiere at the El Capitan Theater #CinderellaEvent


I was invited on an expenses paid trip to LA by Disney to cover the #CinderellaEvent in exchange for my posts of the trip experiences. As always, all opinions are my own. I did it. I survived. I walked a red carpet premiere in Los Angeles at the El Capitan Theater and I did not trip. I did not make funny faces at the massive amounts of press and I did not make a fool of myself by fangirling over anyone famous. I did see plenty of famous people and stood next to a few. I even offered a napkin to a couple of Disney child stars. Let me tell you … [Read more...]
