I’m going to Disney OTR Social Media Moms Celebration!


I was surprised by an email from Disney, to one of the most amazing (if you’re a Disney fan) events … the Disney OTR Social Media Moms Celebration!

I kind of looked at it in shock for a few seconds, then quickly (and with very shaky hands) called my husband. He didn’t answer and I had to call him like 5 more times! When he finally answered he was super excited for me! He know how much I wanted to go.

Then the shock kinda wore off and i decided to double and triple check and make sure I didn’t misread the email. Yes! I really did receive an invite!

What is the Disney OTR Social Media Moms Celebration you ask?

Disney Social Media Moms Celebration On-the-Road is going coast to coast in June 2015, spreading tons of pixie dust along the way. From dynamic speakers and interactive sessions to behind-the-scenes info straight from Disney Parks, its no wonder that previous attendees have come from all over to experience the unique magic of Disney Social Media Moms Celebration On-the-Road.”

I’m looking forward to learning something new and meeting people with similar interests. And there are always surprises when Disney is involved!  Follow me on twitter or Instagram for more updates. Look for #DisneySMMC to check out everyone’s photos and updates.

HP MyPrintly Event

I have the opportunity to attend a MyPrintly Event here in Austin. And oh my! this event was so much fun! MyPrintly from HP has some wonderful new concepts that would knock your socks off! I also got to see many awesome and sweet familiar faces so I was thrilled.

HPs new printers allow you to turn the pictures on your smartphone into personalized cards and printing them directly from my mobile device with a couple of great new apps. With HP Social Media Snapshots you can print from Facebook, Instagram, or your phone. Check out your iTunes or Google Play store for the HP Social Media Snapshots and HP Cards apps! These awesome posts can be printed with all the tags and hashtags you used on the post. How awesome is that?

We got to decorate adorable picture frames, decorate cupcakes, there was tons of yummy food and stations where we could print cards and pictures. Oh! and a sunday bar :p

OMG and the HP Instant Ink program is Ah-mazing!  You pick a monthly plan according to your printing usage and your printer lets HP know when you need ink and they ship it to your door for a low monthly charge. Smart, easy, convenient. Imagine no more alerts, no more late night runs to the store. No more fights because project are due the next day and it’s already 10 pm, am I the only one with procrastinating children?!?

If you are the crafty kind, like me :) Actually better than me, paper crafts are honestly not my forte. Be sure to visit MyPrintly to find some inspiration on Creating Memories You Keep! From cards to cupcake toppers, even I can make some gorgeousness happen!

I can not express how much I loved this event, seeing old and new friends and leaning about the awesome new technologies from HP, was just the event I needed! Also, a big shout out to the HP team! They were super attentive, nice and made sure everyone felt included and happy!

Frozen Party Series: Tutu-Rela Review

I am so excited to share with you guys one of my latest Etsy shop finds: Tutu-Rela Boutique. They make the most darling tutus and I just had to have some for my Frozen themed party/sleeover.

My daughter K seriously thinks she is a princess. And she shows it in the way she dances, the way talks, acts…even in the way she dresses. I am not a big fan of huge puffy dresses, specially in super humid and hot crazy Texas weather. So image my delight (and my daughters) when we found these gorgeous tutus?! Not only are they light and fresh but they can be added to any outfit to make any little girl feel like a princess. Can I say perfect for a birthday party?

I got the idea for the table setup online and I couldn’t wait to see the little girls faces when the saw them! Each little girl got a tutu from Tutu-Rela Boutique, made to order for each little girl. I can’t tell you how happy they were and how much they enjoyed dancing and playing in their tutus.


The tutus are made with white, purple, and turquoise tulle and decorated with blue ribbon and snowflakes. Tutus are handmade. No-Sew tutus are made with elastic waist. Itty Bitty and Extra Small tutus are made with crochet waist. Please specify elastic waist for these sizes.

Tutu-Rela is an adorable Etsy shop that makes all their tutus to order and they offer an array of colors, sizes and they have a super friendly and accommodating customer service. They also offer headbands, tutu totes and decorated hangers. They are super detailed with the sizing and want to make sure everything surpasses your expectations. Make sure to check out their shop HERE and follow them on Instagram

New Cinderella Live Action Review

I first heard about the new live action Cinderella movie from the Christian Loubouitin ad. Honestly I was dumbfounded Cinderella has always been one of my favorite movies and although I was sure Disney would do it justice, I know we live in a completely different era than the one when the animated film came out. Also, a leap from animation into live action isn’t always smooth nor successful.

This week, I had the opportunity to see the live action version of Cinderella at an advanced press screening. I thought the re-telling of the classic fairy tale was done beautifully. I really appreciated the time spent on Ella’s background and the character development, specially the time spent getting to know her mother. The film did not shy away from the emotional turmoils in Cinderella’s childhood, and kept her mothers memory very much alive through her message to have courage and to be kind.

Lily James and Richard Madden are real life royalty, they are both immensely gorgeous and the dance sequence was magical and amazing. I was a bit wary about that specific scene since it’s so meaningful to the film but once again Disney has proven to they can make everything amazing!

Helena Bonham Carter is a beautiful and ever so clumsy fairy godmother and her rendition of Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo through the elegant orchestra score took me way back to my childhood, to a time when I though I was also a Disney princess. If you are curious about a bonus after the credits, there isn’t one; but I suggest hanging around for the credits to hear Helen Bonham Carter’s rendition of Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo which is also included on the soundtrack. Oh! and the new version of a Dream is a wish your heart makes is tear worthy. Perhaps I just have a strong bond to Cinderella ;)

Frozen Fever

I was super excited about the new short Frozen Fever! And let me tell you it did not disappoint. I am sure there will be a fair percentage of movie goers who are just headed out to see Cinderella for the new Frozen Fever short that is attached. It was super funny and in true Disney short fashion it delivered a lot more than expected. The new song, Making Today a Perfect Day, with Anna & Elsa was very cute and I’m sure will be a huge hit with little girls.


Disclamer: I was given free Press Passes to watch the film, I was not compensated to write the review or watch the movie. All opinions are my own.

Frozen 2 is coming!!!! FREE Disney’s Frozen Activity Sheets

Detox Water Recipe

Lately my stomach hurts all the time and I am feeling miserable and bloated, the heat doesn’t help much either so I asked a friend and she gave me a yummy recipe for some detox water, so of course I decided I should share with you guys :)

Detox Water Recipe
Recipe type: Detox Water
  • Water
  • 1 slice grapefruit
  • 1 tangerine
  • ½ cucumber, sliced
  • 2 peppermint leaves
  1. Just add everything to a pitcher, drink 8 oz before every meal at least 3 times a day.
  2. The longer it sits the better it’ll taste.

I found all the ingredients at Whole Foods, and instead of a pitcher I used the glass bottles I got with flavored lemonade also from Whole Foods, by the way……………so delish! and they are on sale this week 5 for $5!

Give it a try and let me know how you like it.

Best Buy: Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard Review

Logitech Keyboard and app image.jpg

My husband is really into gadges and new technologies, he’s always in the know about all the latest techie goodness. Our home entertainment system is no exeption! He’s always on the lookout for products that will make the whole home theater experience better. Needless to say there’s many things going on on our entertainment center; LCD TV, DirecTV DVR, DVD Player, XBox, Playstation, Wii and a laptop are always hooked up.

Logitech Keyboard and app image.jpg

You are probably picturing the mess and the insane amount of controllers and remotes. However, I still need a different remote to handle controlling each of those things. And don’t get me started with the pain it can be to browse Netflix or Youtube!

So when I was given the opportunity to review Logitech’s Harmony Keyboard it was a no brainer! We were sooooooooo excited and couldn’t wait to give it a go!

The Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard lets you:

  • Control devices behind cabinet doors and walls
  • Control up to eight devices
  • Works with Apple TV, Roku and TiVo
  • Use your smartphone, with the Harmony smartphone app, to supplement keyboard controls with touch-screen gesture
Logitech Keyboard and app image.jpg

The Harmony Smart Keyboard delivers the full Harmony control experience for TV-connected Internet and home entertainment devices. It comes with everything that you need to get up and running. In addition to the keyboard, the kit includes the Harmony hub which is the brain of the system. It also includes 2 USB receivers which can be used in your non-Bluetooth enabled devices like your computer or television. It also includes an IR blaster, USB extender, and USB cable.

All you do is set up the hub so you can use the harmony keyboard and your smartphone to control all of the devices hooked up to your system. Setup was really easy (I supervised my IT guy ;) ). To pair your devices all you do is enter in the manufacturer name and model name/number, that easy! All devices just clicks away, no more having to deal with those silly universal remotes that need to be redone every time the batteries die.

Harmony Hub controls devices behind cabinets or walls

  • IR, RF, USB, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi
  • Simple smartphone setup
  • Harmony App turns iOS & Android smartphones into personal universal remote

Logitech Keyboard and app image.jpg

My son is in love with the ability to easily type what he is looking for without issues. And if typing isn’t as exciting to you as it is to us the keyboard also has 3 keys where you can program activities. I set up the activities we use the most like Watch TV, Games and music. But the keyboard includes integrated DVR and set-top box controls, playback and volume buttons, and a touchpad for cursor control on a PC or Mac, and much more.

Right now through June 21 you can get the Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard exclusively at Best Buy. The cost is $149.99. But I promised it will change your life!

Posh Paper Parties Co Etsy Store Review

Continuing with reviews for the wonderful items we got for the Monster Bash……………..Next stop is PoshPaperPartiesCo, an amazing Etsy shop with an even more amazing mother/daughter duo behind it.

We got a highchair banner, did you know about this? and a party hat from them. The store owner, Flavia Andrews was wonderful! She asked me about the colors and theme of the party and even sent me drafts of the template she would use to make my items.

Everything was perfectly coordinated and customized to my son’s name and party. Look at how gorgeous this banner is!  The colors where vibrant and went perfectly with the party.

Each scalloped circle measures 5″, our banner had 6 of them. It fit perfectly around the highchair.
My son’s name Gael,the words “Is One!” and images were printed in high resolution, mounted on high quality cardstock and strung with fabric ribbon. All in the coordinated colors. 

Now take a look at this gorgeous party hat! Isn’t precious?

Made out cardstock with fabric ribbon trim and ties. Die cut number one and scalloped monster embellishment and soft pom-poms at the top.
Hat measures 7″ tall and 4.25″ wide. It “sits” on top of baby’s head. Ribbon ties measure 13″ long each.

There was no monster themed party hats at PoshPaperPartiesCo but Flavia was so wonderful and accommodating that she made this one specially for my son. That not only shows how talented she is but also how important she takes all her customers.

Make sure to check out their shop HERE and follow them on Facebook and Twitter.

We received 40 adorable cupcake toppers in 3 patterns and gorgeous bright colors, this monsters were adorable! Made with super strong carstock and glued to sticks with hot glue. They went on top of our little bundtinis from Nothing Bundt Cakes. Don’t they look adorable? They kids went crazy for them and were choosing the little cakes not by the flavors but by the monster on top.

We also received this gorgeous banner, which was personalized with my son’s name and three different kinds of monsters all made with very nice thick scalloped cardstock in the party colors with adorable googly eyes, all hanging together with shimmery ribbon. I now have the name banner hanging on my son’s room and it looks adorable :)

Austin Moonwalks Review

A party is not a party without some entertainment! And for our little monster party we had some awesome stuff from Austin Moonwalks. Guests got to bounce around on really cool castle moonwalk and they enjoyed some great cotton candy.

Austin Moonwalks offers free delivery and setup to a limited delivery area, there’s a small delivery fee for some outlying zip codes. A very nice guy came to our party, explained how to care for the items, how use make the cotton candy and went over all the guidelines with me. He also set everything up so we didn’t have to worry about anything!

The kids literally jumped throughout the entire party, they just couldn’t get enough of it! We chose the King Castle moonwalk you can see it HERE. This one rents for $139 and it was super clean no weird smells like some moonwalk can have.


We had a huge line when we started making the cotton candy. It was really easy to make and everyone enjoyed it greatly! There’s just something special about cotton candy. I think both my husband and I were more excited then the kids!  :lol: This one rents for $75 and comes with two huge containers of sugar, we had plenty to go around and still had some left over. You can check it out HERE.

Once the party ended he came back to pick up all the items. We didn’t even have to clean the cotton candy machine which was soooooo much fun but I was very glad I didn’t have to clean it!

Thank you so much for making my little monster’s birthday party extra special and keeping our guests very entertained. Make sure to follow Austin Moonwalks on Facebook and check out all the deals they have.
