ROOM Movie opens November 6

 

It’s movie season and another great movie that you need to know about is coming out soon!

 

ROOM book cover art

 

Both highly suspenseful and deeply emotional, ROOM is a unique and unexpectedly tender exploration of the boundless love between a mother and her child under the most harrowing of circumstances.

 

ROOM movie opens November 6

 

ROOM tells the extraordinary story of Jack (Jacob Tremblay in a breakout performance), a spirited 5 year-old who is looked after by his loving and devoted Ma (Brie Larson, SHORT TERM 12, TRAINWRECK).  Like any good mother, Ma dedicates herself to keeping Jack happy and safe, nurturing him with warmth and love and doing typical things like playing games and telling stories. Their life, however, is anything but typical—they are trapped—confined to a windowless, 10-by-10-foot space, which Ma has euphemistically named “Room.” Ma has created a whole universe for Jack within Room, and she will stop at nothing to ensure that, even in this treacherous environment, Jack is able to live a complete and fulfilling life.   But as Jack’s curiosity about their situation grows, and Ma’s resilience reaches its breaking point, they enact a risky plan to escape, ultimately bringing them face-to-face with what may turn out to be the scariest thing yet: the real world.  ROOM also stars three-time Academy Award® nominee Joan Allen and Academy Award® nominee William H. Macy.
 


At once a taut narrative of captivity and freedom, an imaginative trip into the wonders of childhood, and a profound portrait of a family’s bonds and fortitude, ROOM is a beautifully transcendent experience based on the award-winning global bestseller by Emma Donoghue. Director Lenny Abrahamson (FRANK) remains faithful to the novel while bringing Jack, Ma and their entirely singular world to heart-pounding and intensely cinematic life. ROOM demonstrates the triumphant power of familial love even in the darkest of circumstances, and is sure to take its place among the most emotionally affecting films to ever explore the bond between parents and children.

I’m In Love With A Monster! {actually, more than one!} — Hotel Transylvania 2 review

by Paula on September 25, 2015

THE POST BELOW MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. FOR MORE DETAILS, PLEASE SEE OUR DISCLOSURE NOTICE.

Ariel and I were treated to a a sneak peek preview of Hotel Transylvania 2 recently and we fell in love all over again with Drac and his pack.  We laughed the entire time…. and we weren’t the only ones!!  The entire theater was entranced and entertained.

 

Hotel Transylvania 2movie poster

 

As I mentioned in my Hotel Transylvania 2 giveaway post last week (have you entered yet???  Go here to enter!), we adored the original Hotel Transylvania when it came out a few years ago and fell in love with Drac, Mavis, Johnny, and the rest of the gang.  There was enough slapstick humor to please the kids (and the kids-at-heart) and enough adult/parenting humor that the adults could enjoy too.  Add to all of that, a sweet message of acceptance and love across differences and you have a perfect movie.

Hotel Transylvania 2 builds on all of those strengths.  We get to see Mavis and Johnny as adults/young parents, meet their son Dennis, and fall in love with everyone all over again.

There were many touching scenes where parental love shone through and the struggles we all have (or maybe it’s just me not wanting my baby to grow up?!) watching our children grow and mature and become independent.

 



 

The version of Hotel Transylvania 2 we saw was 3D and I have to admit, I am so incredibly prone to being motion sick that I don’t ever choose a 3D movie when we go to the cinema.  I LOVED it!  Didn’t get sick at all and quite the opposite–thought the 3D added so much to the movie experience that I highly recommend it to everyone I can to see this movie in 3D!

Blah…. blah, blah!  😉

Hotel Transylvania 2 — Drac’s Pack is Back!!

by Paula on September 19, 2015

THE POST BELOW MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. FOR MORE DETAILS, PLEASE SEE OUR DISCLOSURE NOTICE.

We LOVED Hotel Transylvania so finding out a sequel was coming out soon made us very happy!  And it will be out really soon—September 25!

 

Hotel Transylvania 2 in theaters September 25

 

Here’s a little about the movie:

Drac’s pack is back for an all-new monster comedy adventure in Sony Pictures Animation’s Hotel Transylvania 2! Everything seems to be changing for the better at Hotel Transylvania… Dracula’s rigid monster-only hotel policy has finally relaxed, opening up its doors to human guests. But behind closed coffins, Drac is worried that his adorable half-human, half-vampire grandson, Dennis, isn’t showing signs of being a vampire. So while Mavis is busy visiting her human in-laws with Johnny – and in for a major cultural shock of her own – “Vampa” Drac enlists his friends Frank, Murray, Wayne and Griffin to put Dennis through a “monster-in-training” boot camp. But little do they know that Drac’s grumpy and very old, old, old school dad Vlad is about to pay a family visit to the hotel. And when Vlad finds out that his great-grandson is not a pure blood – and humans are now welcome at Hotel Transylvania – things are going to get batty!


Vampa Drac and Dennis in Hotel Transylvania 2
Hotel Transylvania 2 has been rated PG by the MPAA for the following reasons:  some scary images, action and rude humor.  Hotel Transylvania 2 stars Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Kevin James, Fran Drescher, Steve Buscemi, Molly Shannon, and David Spade.  It’s directed by Genndy Tartakovsky.

The Inn On The River: Pigeon Forge’s Perfectly Located Hotel #hosted

by Paula on August 5, 2015

THE POST BELOW MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. FOR MORE DETAILS, PLEASE SEE OUR DISCLOSURE NOTICE.

The Inn On The River is Pigeon Forge's Perfectly Located Hotel

 

Are you among the 11 million folks that will visit Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, this year? If so, you NEED to know about The Inn On The River!! We visited Pigeon Forge last week and were graciously hosted at The Inn On The River by General Manager Karl Thomas. He even gave us a sneak peek into what’s upcoming as far as their continuing renovations and improvements!

 

Exciting Renovations Plans for The Inn On The River presented by General Manager Karl Thomas

 

First off, The Inn On The River is an older property that is being redone from the ground up. It was a chain and now is privately owned. Can I just tell you how perfectly located this hotel is? It’s right on the banks of the Little Pigeon River at traffic light #2 (all of the directions given throughout Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg use directions from the closest main traffic light on US Highway 441 (known around town as “Parkway”)–much easier than learning street names in an unfamiliar area!). The Inn On The River is one of the very few hotels located on the banks of the river, giving it a peaceful and beautiful aspect that is unrivaled in the area.

 

Scenic View of the Little Pigeon River from The Inn On The River, Pigeon Forge, TN

 

Beautiful View of the Little Pigeon River from The Inn On The River, Pigeon Forge, TN

 

And convenient! We were mere minutes away from all of the attractions on our agenda. If we had wanted to, we could have even left our car parked at the hotel and taken the multi-route trolley. It departs just a few steps from the Inn’s front door. (We didn’t this time, but will definitely do it next time! It looks so convenient and easy.)

 

Fun Time Trolley Stop in Pigeon Forge, TN

 

As Mr. Thomas showed us around The Inn On The River, his pride in the all of the improvements being implemented was obvious. He told us of the new pool upgrades happening later in August/early September (properly timed after the summer rush is over). Note: The Inn On The River is one of the few hotels in the area to have both indoor and outdoor pools. The new color combinations are beautiful and attention has been paid to choose function too: the new flooring tiles have non-slip properties. And since the current pools are already so attractive, I can’t wait to see the new look! They’re going to be amazing!!

 

Lovely indoor and outdoor pools at The Inn On The River

 

The guest rooms are all being remodeled and we enjoyed a newly-done spacious and lovely first floor room that faced onto the river. It was fun waking up to a family of ducks (and a few geese) in the morning!!

 

We loved the ducks and geese at The Inn On The River

 

The guest rooms feature Serta pillow top mattresses–ours had two queen sized beds, but king sized beds are also available. We loved the in-room Keurig and thought the bathroom was gorgeous. The Bath & Body Works Stress Relief toiletries were a nice touch too.

 

Beautiful Newly Remodeled Guest Rooms at The Inn On The River in Pigeon Forge, TN

 

From the moment we walked into The Inn On The River, we knew it was a special place. A popcorn machine is not normal hotel lobby decor!! But here, it makes evenings fun. Toss in some family board games (tucked away–but within little ones’ reach–in special bins in the lobby) and 24 hour complimentary coffee, hot tea, and hot chocolate and you have some of the unique touches that make The Inn On The River so delightful. Oh, and there is a special “Vacation Starter Kit” for kids 10 and under. It includes such fun items as an arcade gift card, a deck of playing cards, stickers, and some other assorted toys. Such a sweet idea!

 

Kids' Vacation Starter Kit at The Inn On The River in Pigeon Forge, TN

 

There’s a free breakfast buffet in the morning with all the expected standards and plenty of seating inside and out. I was impressed that an awning was being installed on the patio to turn it into more of a multi-season space. It’s a beautiful area next to the river, but full of sunlight… and in the summer, it gets hot quickly. So an awning makes perfect sense. In the fall, they’re going to add patio heaters and the space will become a warm, welcoming retreat. Perfect!

 

Rest, Relax, and Recharge in the spacious and comfortable newly renovated lobby of The Inn On The River

 

So, as you can tell, we thought The Inn On The River was perfectly located, quiet spot on the river but within reach of so many favorite spots…. but we also thought it was just perfect. We loved all the little extras that added up to one fantastic hotel. It’s #3 on TripAdvisor for a reason!!

 

The Inn On The River is #3 out of 94 hotels in Pigeon Forge on Trip Advisor!

 

Disclosure: We were invited by the folks at The Inn On The River to stay with them while we were in Pigeon Forge so we did receive a complimentary night’s stay in exchange for an honest review on our blog. ALL of the opinions in this post are completely our own.

Always Discreet…. {gulp}…because #PeeHappens

by Paula on July 2, 2015

THE POST BELOW MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. FOR MORE DETAILS, PLEASE SEE OUR DISCLOSURE NOTICE.

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Always Discreet. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

 

Always Discreet Logo

 

I’ve talked about slightly uncomfortable topics here before.  Bullying, periods, sex….yes, you probably expect some of those topics, but here’s one you might not have expected…. sensitive bladder leaks.  Yeah, I know.

And you know.

Pee happens.

Pregnancy can do it to you.

Menopause can do it to you.

Obesity, diabetes, age… all can contribute to sensitive bladder leaks.

And when does it happen?  When you’re having fun–dancing, laughing, exercising (okay, that might not be fun for some of us!)–and that makes those fun times full of worry and anxiety.  But it doesn’t mean  you have to stop enjoying your favorite activities…. it just means you need a little protection to feel safe in your enjoyment.  And with so many of us experiencing sensitive bladder leaks, there’s no reason to be embarrassed.  But there is every reason to use the right products.

More than 40 million American women experience some sensitive bladder leaks–that’s 1 in 3 women!–but only 1 in 9 women are using the proper pads.  Many women use regular period pads, probably because that’s what they already have on hand, but regular period pads aren’t made for bladder leaks and don’t work as well as pads specially created for that purpose.

 

Always Discreet received Good Housekeeping award

 

Always has been a global leader in feminine protection for years and I’ve been a fan of their products for as long as I’ve needed menstrual pads, but I’d never heard of Always Discreet until now.  I guess since they’ve only been around for about six months gives me a little leeway.  But get this–in those short six months, Always Discreet has gotten the attention of some major recognizers and collected some awards:  Good Housekeeping Seal & Product of the Year Best New Product Award for Always Discreet liners, pads and underwear as well as Better Homes & Gardens Best New Product Award for Always Discreet liners.  Wow!  That’s some major recognition!!

 

Better Homes Best New Product 2015 awarded to Always Discreet liners

 

Please allow me to introduce the award-winning line of Always Discreet products:

Always Discreet Liners

 

Always Discreet Liners

 

from the Always Discreet website:

Always Discreet Liners are thin and flexible to help provide a balance of protection and discretion, each individually wrapped for ease of carrying and disposing. Specific benefits are:

Always Discreet Liners come in a dark pink package and are available in three sizes: A Very Light regular length (1 droplet on package), Very Light long length (1½ droplets on package), and Ultra Thin regular length (2 droplets on package), each with increasing absorbent capacity.

 

Always Discreet Pads

 

Always Discreet Pads

 

from the Always Discreet website:

Always Discreet Pads are thin and flexible with added Double LeakGuards™ to help balance protection and discretion, each individually wrapped for ease of carrying and disposing. Specific benefits are:

  • Absorbs leaks and odors in seconds
  • Unique DualLock™ core to help lock away odor and wetness for hours
  • Exclusive OdorLock™ technology that neutralizes odors instantly and continuously
  • Thin and flexible design that fits discreetly under your clothes
  • Full length double LeakGuards™ to help stop leaks where they happen most
  • Individually wrapped.  Easy open. Re-closable for discreet disposal.
  • Absorbs 2x more than you may need* * Based on average US consumer usage
  • Up to 40% thinner than the leading brand
  • Dermatologically tested. Lightly scented

Always Discreet Underwear

 

Always Discreet Underwear

 

from the Always Discreet website:

Always Discreet Underwear was designed by reapplying many years of technical innovation and consumer knowledge in both Feminine Care and Baby Care categories. Specific benefits are:

  • Absorbs leaks and odors in seconds
  • Soft cotton-like fabric in the waist band
  • Double LeakGuards™ to help stop leaks where they happen most
  • Advanced Triple Layer core that helps pull, trap and lock away wetness and odor
  • Exclusive OdorLock™ technology that neutralizes odors instantly and continuously
  • Provides outstanding protection, comfort and discretion
  • Purple back waist to aid in application and indicate the back of the underwear
  • Sensory Delight signals to help communicate protection in a feminine way
  • Dermatologically tested. Lightly scented

Always Discreet Underwear come in a green package and are available in three sizes, each with two absorbency levels: Moderate absorbency (6 droplets on package) in a small/medium, large and extra large size; and a maximum absorbency (7 droplets on package) in a small/medium, large and extra large size.

 

Always sent me samples of both pads and underwear.  I liked both.  The absorbency was a bit much for what I need at this point, but it wasn’t uncomfortable like I had imagined it to be.  And I’m guessing that’s what a lot of women expect.  We’re all used to period pads and think a special bladder protection pad will feel like a diaper and everyone will notice.  But Always Discreet didn’t feel that way at all!  I’m not a mathematician, but the numbers they use seem about right:  Always Discreet pads are up to forty percent thinner than the leading brand and absorb twice as much fluid as the average woman may need.  I was worried that a “light scent” might be too much, since I have extreme allergies to almost every scent… but this didn’t bother me at all.  I love that the liners and pads come in different lengths–so smart.  I only wish they had wings.  That wouldn’t stop me from buying the product because I thought it worked well, but it would encourage me to buy it over another product that didn’t.

Here’s what you need to do:

Check out the Always Discreet website here.  There’s some great info there and, if you think Always Discreet is right for you, you can sign up for a free sample.  And, truthfully, it’s so much easier to do pre-shopping and info gathering in the quiet of your own {private!} home instead of the store with everyone milling around beside you.

Connect with Always  on Facebook here and Always on Twitter here.

Remember that you are not alone and shouldn’t be embarrassed by sensitive bladder leaks.  It’s a fact of life for many, many women and with use of proper products, you can enjoy all the good things that life has to offer without being worried or anxious.

Enjoy!

Hyland’s Dream Dad Contest!

by Paula on June 17, 2015

THE POST BELOW MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. FOR MORE DETAILS, PLEASE SEE OUR DISCLOSURE NOTICE.

Why do we love our dads?  There are SO many reasons, SO many amazing qualities that Dads have that make us love them—who could just list one?

 

hylands-dreamdad-header

 

Well, the folks over at Hyland’s have a fun contest on Facebook where you can vote for your Dream Dad.  Choose from dreamy attributes as Handy Dad, Gourmet Dad, At-Home Dad, Outdoor Dad, Funny Dad, or Sports Dad.  I loved reading the descriptions and knowing how appreciated all of those abilities and aptitudes are in dads.  Can you guess which one I picked?

 

Hylands Dream Dad Gourmet

 

Yes, I love all the different Dream Dads, but I picked the dad that had the attributes most opposite mine…. the Gourmet Dad!!  Because while I love good food, I’m not always dedicated to actually cooking.  What?  You really thought all those pins were dishes I had plans to create?  HA!  I just want to EAT them!!  😀

But with good food, especially rich, gourmet food, can come indigestion.  What better addition to the Gourmet Dad’s medicine cabinet than Hyland’s Indigestion?  From their website:  “It’s a traditional homeopathic formula that relieves upset stomach due to hyperacidity or improper diet.”  Sounds to be exactly what the Gourmet Dad needs to keep on hand!

 

Hylands Indigestion

 

Go over to Hyland’s Facebook page, like them, and vote for your Dream Dad!  There are some great prizes, including a $200 Visa Gift Card and a Hyland’s Adult Gift Basket!  And everyone who enters gets a special offer just for participating!

Five winners will receive the following prizes from Hyland’s!

  1. Grand Prize: $200 VISA Gift Card and Hyland’s Adult Gift Basket
