Peppa Pig: Peppa's Christmas DVD Review

Disclosure: A complimentary product  was received for review purposes.


It's no secret that my kids love Peppa Pig, and they were very excited to watch the newly released Peppa Pig: Peppa's Christmas DVD.

Synopsis: Join Peppa in this All-New fun-filled holiday special as Peppa and her family celebrate the season. Peppa and George write letters to Santa, decorate the Christmas tree, sing festive songs and stay awake all night waiting to catch a glimpse of the big guy himself. There s also a trip to Pirate Island, a visit to the Dentist, a school bus trip adventure and much more! Kids will love these hilarious adventures filled with lots of snorts and laughter, and of course, jumping in muddy puddles!

There are 12 episodes on the DVD, and with each episode running about 5 minutes, it's the perfect length for my kids.

My kids loved Peppa's Christmas episode where everyone got special gifts from Father Christmas. The scenes and the decorations sure made my kids excited for Christmas!

They also liked Pretend Friend, where they were introduced to "Leo," who loved to eat fruit cake.

One of my kids' favorite episodes is The Long Grass, simply because they think it's so funny when Daddy Pig exclaims "What a nice day for doing...nothing!" and falls back into his chair, only to find himself having to cut the long grass.

My kids really enjoyed the various episodes of Peppa Pig and her family and friends finding themselves in funny scenarios and exciting adventures.

If your kids are fans of Peppa Pig, this is definitely a must for the DVD library.

31st Annual North Carolina Holiday Flotilla


NC Holiday Flotilla, photography by Joshua McClure
Named one of the Top 20 Events by the Southeast Tourism Society in 2013, the North Carolina Holiday Flotilla weekend, a coastal Thanksgiving tradition, returns to Wrightsville Beach, Nov. 27-30.

Celebrating a 31-year run, the North Carolina Holiday Flotilla attracts 50,000 visitors to its culminating event, a maritime parade featuring thematically decorated power yacht and sailboat floats. The spectacle, reflected in the Banks Channel, glitters with thousands of twinkling lights.

Located directly on the parade route, sponsor and host hotel Blockade Runner Beach Resort launches the weekend with a gala, Thanksgiving Day feast for early arrivals. Soundside, Cape Fear Naturalist Captain Joe Abbate navigates local waters guiding Masonboro Island, Harbor Island and Sunset Cruises for the family.

Friday brings Santa Claus and the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony to Wrightsville Beach Town Hall Park. Children anxiously await, list in hand, for a personal audience with St. Nick. At 7:00 p.m., The Embers - Featuring Craig Woolard, headline Atlantic Marine's festive Flotilla Launch Party, including dancing, hors d'oeuvres, a cash bar and silent auction of gifts from civic-minded supporters.

"One of the hidden gems during flotilla weekend is Saturday's Festival in the Park for the children," said Pres Davenport, Chairman of the Holiday Flotilla board.

From 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., the park is bustling with bouncy houses, slides, climbing walls, the Arab Choo Choo, live blue-grass music, an antique auto show, and, an estimated 100 booths featuring local merchants and arts and crafts vendors. Children will have an opportunity to decorate and submit entries in the flotilla boat-coloring contest, and Home Depot will be on site with wooden boat kits, free for young carpenters. Admission is free for the entire family.
2013 Best In Show, Photography by Beth Watson-Hedgepeth
Saturday at 6:00 p.m., a short burst of aerial fireworks will light up the sky announcing the twilight parade of beautifully lit and decorated power and sailing vessels. The flotilla weaves a 4-mile route through Motts Channel, Banks Channel and the Intracoastal Waterway, passing the judges' viewing stand at Blockade Runner, all competing for $10,500 in cash prizes. A panel of judges, including John Boy, of John Boy and Billy's Big Show, carefully select the winners. Text voting continues this year, with the Crowd Favorite and People's Choice Awards determined by spectators.

Immediately following the flotilla, a stunning 21-minute, 4,000-round fireworks display illuminates the night sky, showering the waterway with sound and color. "We have a long show by Zambelli International, one of the most reputable fireworks companies in the world," said Davenport. "We're able to put on a really impressive display that rivals or surpasses most July 4thshows. Most shows are 15 minutes. That additional five to six minutes puts a great cap on the weekend with an impressive fireworks finale."

"Another thing we're really excited about this year is the fact that the Surfrider Foundation has volunteered to help clean up the waterway and beaches the morning after the fireworks show, to make sure the debris is gone and we are good stewards of the environment," said Davenport.

Dallas' NorthPark Center Expands Public Art Program; Announces Free Exhibition of Jim Campbell's Scattered Light / Opens November 25, 2014

mNorthPark Center presents Scattered Light, a public art installation of pioneering new media artist Jim Campbell. The work will be on view in CenterPark Garden for the shopping center’s “Season of Light” holiday, and remain up through spring 2015.

Scattered Light, 2010, is a three-dimensional installation immersing viewers in a luminous maze of over 1,500 LEDs encased in conventional light bulbs. The seemingly random flickering of these lights is, in fact, meticulously programmed by the artist to evoke the shadows of figures walking across the curtains of suspended bulbs. Scattered Light was commissioned for Madison Square Park in New York City and was most recently on view at Edinburgh Place, City University of Hong Kong in Hong Kong.

“It is with great joy that we bring this iconic light sculpture to NorthPark Center after its successful run in New York City and Hong Kong,” said Nancy A. Nasher, co-owner of NorthPark Center with husband David J. Haemisegger. “We are committed to continuing our role in enhancing the cultural vibrancy of Dallas, and believe our ongoing public art program at NorthPark is a unique contribution in this regard. Jim Campbell’s incredible installation of light, electronics and ingenuity is nothing short of awe-inspiring, and we are certain it will capture the amazement of art enthusiasts of all ages.”

By installing the work within the tranquility of NorthPark Center’s CenterPark Garden, Scattered Light creates a poetic contrast with its urban environment and offers viewers a respite to linger and examine the brilliant work without distraction. As the artist notes, “Light is a meta-thing. There’s something magical about working with it; people have almost a meditative response.”

Campbell’s inventive fusion of science and art is recognized worldwide. His work has been exhibited internationally and throughout North America to great acclaim in many important institutions, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; The International Center for Photography, New York; The J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, Australia, among others.

The Museum of the Moving Image in New York recently displayed Jim Campbell: Rhythms of Perception, a career-spanning exhibition of more than 20 works featuring early experimental film, interactive works, low-resolution videos, and large-scale installations. His iconic electronic artwork is included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Whitney Museum of American Art; the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the de Young Museum, San Francisco, and the Berkeley Art Museum, among others.

In 2012, Campbell was the recipient of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s 13th Annual Bay Area Treasure Award. Previous honors include a Rockefeller Foundation Fellowship Award in Multimedia, three Langlois Foundation Grants, and a Guggenheim Fellowship Award. He has two Bachelor of Science degrees in mathematics and electrical engineering from MIT, and as an engineer holds nearly 20 patents in the field of video image processing.

MySuperCookies Review

Disclosure: Complimentary samples were received for review purposes.



MySuperCookies, from the MySuperFoods Company, are available in three varieties - Honey Heroes, Blueberry Vanilla Heroes, and Chocolate Heroes.

Each variety is represented by a superhero that represents health and nutrition (e.g. Chocolate Heroes' Luca-Pro focuses on the consumption of protein).

Not only are they delicious (I personally love the Blueberry Vanilla) and cute, but they also contain no artificial colors or preservatives and is a good source of Vitamin C.  I also think it's great that the cookies are made from organic and non-GMO ingredients.  

MySuperCookies are snacks with a mission of educating kids about health and nutrition in a tasty way.

MySuperCookies are sold in over 600 grocery stores in 30 states in the U.S. (including Costco, Target, Mom's Organic Market and Kings), as well as online at Amazon.com and Vine.com

VSP Vision Care Can Help You #SeeMuchMore and Designer Sunglasses Giveaway

Disclosure: The below is a sponsored post.

My kids just went to their yearly physicals, at which they went through an eye test.  However, because it's not a very thorough exam, and even though they go through screenings at school, we still make them see an eye doctor.

Thankfully, we have VSP Vision Care, which provides our family with a large selection of eye care providers to choose from when it comes to our vision care needs.

We are grateful that VSP Vision Care enables us to afford the cost of eye exams and any other services, as my oldest son was diagnosed with exotropia a few years ago.  Therefore, it is very important for us to ensure he checks his eyes as often as his eye doctor recommends.

If you suspect your child may have vision problems, or it has been years since your child has gone to see an eye doctor, it's important for him/her to get an eye exam, and VSP Vision Care can help.

About VSP Vision Care (VSP)

As the largest national not-for-profit in vision care, VSP Vision Care reinvests in the things its nearly 66 million members value most – the best care at the lowest out-of-pocket costs. With a network of 30,000 eye care providers, VSP members have the freedom to choose the provider, location and eyewear that’s right for them. It’s easy to see why VSP is consumers’ #1 choice in vision care.

SeeMuchMore.com (www.seemuchmore.com) is a one-stop site for all the information you need about enrolling in vision benefits. The site includes a virtual savings calculator to estimate your savings with VSP vision benefits. There is also helpful information about maintaining healthy vision that can be found at the Learn About Your Eyes section of the site, and you can download a very informative "Busting Eye Health Myths" sheet here.  You can also find out if your city is listed in this Top 10 Eye Healthy Cities for Kids in the U.S. video, and even play an interactive game for a chance to win prizes.

The importance of eye exams:
  • In-school screenings do not provide the same level of detection as comprehensive eye exams. 
  • 80 percent of what we learn is through our eyes, making an eye exam essential for your back-to-school “to do” list.
  • Common signs of vision problems include squinting, head tilting, avoiding “close work,” trouble focusing, continuous rubbing of eyes and headaches.
  • 1 in 4 children has an undetected vision condition that can negatively impact learning.
What are the benefits of enrolling in vision insurance? With VSP Vision Care, you can:
  • Keep your eyes healthy with highly credentialed doctors who provide the most thorough exams 
  • Save money – the average VSP member saves approximately $320 each year with vision insurance!
  • Get access to great eyewear – more than two dozen brands and hundreds of styles to choose from!
  • Enable your family to experience life to the fullest

Win: One lucky winner will receive a pair of designer sunglasses from VSP!

2014 Holiday Gift Guide: 3rd Culture Style

Disclosure: Complimentary product was received for review purposes.



About 3rd Culture Style:
Made in the USA, 3rd Culture Style is the brainchild of one of the world’s top percussionists on today’s top touring and recording circuit TAKU Hirano, referred by rock legend Mick Fleetwood as “the secret weapon” behind today’s top names in music.

3rd Culture Style embodies all of TAKU’s worlds of international travel, skate culture, rock music, Hip-Hop lifestyle, fashion, love of tattoo art, and photographic curating of street art. All now melded to form 3rd Culture Style, boasting today an expansion of style reps and influencers in China, Japan, Portugal, Germany, Holland, France, Switzerland, UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia and the Caribbean.

TAKU's take on what 3rd Culture Style is: "Inclusion, and then Fusion is the way. Know your core, blend in your surroundings, and what will be expressed through your talent is the 3rd Culture. This is your edge. Others will just have to 'TRY AND KEEP UP.' Let them know with the 3rd Culture moniker!"

Another lifestyle statement from TAKU that's gaining worldwide momentum from the streets of New York to Los Angeles and from Shanghai to Osaka, Japan is “Too Much Ego Will Kill Your Talent” featured also to the right, perhaps inspiring this year’s holiday gift for those who work with bigger than life personalities. 

The TRY AND KEEP UP tee, available in a variety of colors for both men and women, features a simple, yet bold statement.  

It can take on a lot of different meanings, but to me it simply means that as long as you follow your passion, you'll be successful, and other people will have to "try and keep up."

I love what 3rd Culture Style embodies - a multi-faceted union of art, life, and culture.  

To check out more of their designs, visit www.3rdCultureStyle.com.

Big Hero 6 Review

Synopsis:
With all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Big Hero 6” is an action-packed comedy-adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius—thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion—a robot named Baymax—and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery. Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, and featuring comic-book style action, “Big Hero 6” is directed by Don Hall (“Winnie the Pooh”) and Chris Williams (“Bolt”), and produced by Roy Conli (“Tangled”). 

My family and I attended a screening of Big Hero 6, which I thought was a really great family film.

The movie is centered around Hiro, a 14-year old genius, and Baymax, a robotic Healthcare Companion built by his brother, Tadashi, plus four friends who are geniuses themselves.

From the very beginning of the movie we witnessed Hiro's awesome robotic skills, which were displayed in a hilarous Bot Fight match.

When Tadashi takes Hiro to the San Fransokyo's Institute of Technology with the hopes of getting him to apply his skills in a prestigious school rather than in Bot Fights, we were introduced to four of his science wiz friends, as well as Baymax.

Activated via others' expressions of pain, Baymax can help with just about any health issue there is with a quick scan and a few questions, and he will not deactivate until his patient expresses his or her satisfaction.

Hiro is so impressed with Tadashi's (and his friends') projects, that he wants nothing more than to get himself enrolled in the school.

He succeeds, but tragedy soon strikes close to Hiro, and he no longer has the enthusiasm for school, nor anything else.

However, he and Baymax soon discover some evil things that are occurring, and they enlist the help of the four friends to stop the villain behind it all.

After becoming equipped with super "powers," the team of 6 - Big Hero 6, conquer many obstacles and eventually succeed in their mission.

Knowing how much good they were able to do, and how much they can still do, they continue their efforts in offering help to those who need it.

Big Hero 6 was full of lots of excitement and laughter, and even a few tears.  I did not expect for some of the sequences to be so heavy, but thankfully most of the movie was full of action and adventure, and many, many funny moments - most of which involved Baymax.

Despite no facial expressions, Baymax's actions and verbal communication sure made people laugh. One of the funniest for my kids was when he had to deflate a little in order to fit through a small window - watching Baymax get smaller and the noise that accompanied the action resulted in giggle fits!

There were also a few funny moments that only adults could understand, and I thought it was very clever how they fit those parts into the movie.

I loved how this movie made science look cool and fun, and the scenes of San Fransokyo really added to the entertainment value of the film.

Big Hero 6 is a very entertaining family film, and I hope to see Big Hero 6 on more adventures!

Big Hero 6 (Rated PG) is now in theaters.



Thank you to the sponsor for the complimentary screening tickets.

Gamesformotion Chocolate Games Review

Disclosure:  Complimentary samples were received for review purposes.


Gamesformotion has hit the ball out of the park for the upcoming holiday season and has just announced the US release of your favorite childhood board games recreated to include Belgium chocolate pieces.  Can you say FUN and DELICIOUS for the entire family? The unique chocolate editions will feature games like Monopoly, Battleship, Trivial Pursuit™, Scrabble®, Candy Land, Clue, Twister, Battleship, Mr. Potato Head, and much more! Children and adults alike will love the idea of devouring their game pieces after winning game night!

All of the chocolate games have the same essential features as their famous counterparts, except that their cards and letter tiles have been replaced with the finest Belgian milk chocolate encased within printed wrappers. Rules for all of the games have been slightly modified by Gamesformotion to ensure they’re always fun and easy to play. Now instead of playing solely for the bragging rights of
winning, in many of the games, you now win all of the chocolate that you could hope for in one sitting. Now that’s something to pass go for.


Gamesformotion has combined two of my favorites - board games and chocolate, into a fun game that the entire family will enjoy playing (and eating!) together.

My kids loved playing Candy Land.  It's already one of their favorite games, but being able to eat chocolate at the end of the game was a sweet prize.


The gameboard itself was on paper, and the color cards were the chocolate wrappers.  Cards were picked "without looking" and since there were color cards on each side of the wrapper, one side was used on one turn, and the other side was used on a subsequent turn.

The winner ends up eating a chocolate coin, and gives each player a piece of chocolate to eat.

Although there is only one chocolate coin, other candies can be substituted for the game winner (great way to use up all that Halloween candy!).

Because the game pieces are actually the chocolate wrappers, once the chocolate is eaten it's a little difficult to the play the game again.  You can, however, cut the wrappers and glue them onto card stock in order to keep on playing without the chocolate.

Each of the Gamesformotion Chocolate Games is fun to play with the entire family, and because of the size and modifications, they are great to take on road trips or playdates.  They will make a sweet and entertaining gift for the holidays!
