Disney FROZEN Review & Exclusive Photos! In Theaters TODAY! #DisneyFrozen

As a huge fan of Disney films and owner of pretty much all the “classics”, I honestly believe Disney's new movie FROZEN is yet another triumphant film, fit to call a classic.  I was truly overwhelmed with emotions while watching this film.  I was so connected to each character in a special way and when the story came to an end, tears just came down my face because it was just so beautiful.  The narrative is inspired by a fairy tale (Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Snow Queen”), a story of two … [Read more...]

Empanada Mama – A Hidden Gem on 9th Ave in New York City

Why is it that if you fry any foods in grease, it will taste absolutely amazing? Sometimes I wish vegetables tasted the same way. Oh well. A few weeks ago I was in the city with my sister and I mentioned to her that I was craving empanadas (think of a Jamaican beef patty). She said she knew the perfect place. We walked from Times Square to the west side on 9th and 51st Street. The weather was beautiful so we just walked and talked. We even saw Ethan Hawkes chatting with some fans. Once … [Read more...]

Special K Resolution Challenge: I Stepped on a Scale in Times Square!

Yes, I did. For once this wasn't your typical scale with numbers that tell you your weight -- instead it was a scale that showed each individual inspirational words or phrases.  Now if it were a "real" scale with numbers, then that would be a whole other story but it wasn't so bad stepping on a scale in front of people in Times Square.  It was quite liberating to be honest. The Special K Team was there to launch their "What will you gain when you lose" campaign to help women get inspired … [Read more...]
