2014 Disney Social Media Moms: Day 4

This is it, folks. The last video from the celebration. And it was quite a celebration. I know there are plenty of naysayers out there. I know there are people that just don’t get the Disney magic. That’s cool. You can just go about your lives. But for those of us that went and want […]

2014 Disney Social Media Moms: Day 3

  The days are getting longer and my evenings getting shorter. So the time it takes to edit a video is getting rougher. Especially tonight. Tomorrow morning, I have to (voluntarily) be up and out by 5:30am. Honestly, it doesn’t matter if I’m on East coast or West coast time, 5:30am is still FREAKING early! […]

2014 Disney Social Media Moms: Day 2

Today was the BIG conference day and what did I learn? A lot. But let me start with the obvious. I’ve learned that shifting to West Coast time and spending a long day in Disney town makes it really really tough to edit and upload a video at the end of the day. Especially when […]

2014 Disney Social Media Moms: Day 1

Here I am sitting in sunny southern California wondering if I’ll really feel the Disney magic here. Even though Disneyland represents the original Disney park, I just felt that it wouldn’t be the same as the massive complex in Orlando known as Walt Disney World. Truth be told, it’s definitely Disney here. Maybe it’s more […]

The 50 Dullest Things You’ll Ever See on Video

It’s an attention grabbing headline because it made you click through. But I’m not sure why. I WAS BEING SERIOUS. Here’s how this shakes out. Just like those chain emails and then Facebook notes… now we’re doing video. It’s called The TMI Tag. I didn’t invent it. I’m just perpetuating it. It all started with Amiyrah […]

What to do with all those Instagram photos

Instagram1

My instagramming has a very distinct style and my Instagram profile kind of says it all: I like interesting photos and colorful filters. But the style is also about when I take photos. Unlike Facebook and Twitter, Instagram isn’t an every day social media tool for me. If it was, it would get a little […]

Do We Really Need A Bucket List?

Browning Quote

I don’t recall ever hearing the term “bucket list” until the movie of the same name came out in 2007. Although I’ve never seen the movie, I actually love the premise. Two terminally ill men escape from a cancer ward and head off on a road trip with a wish list of to-dos before they […]

Reinventing Valentine’s Day

St-Valentine-Kneeling-In-Supplication

I have to admit that most of the sentiment I read over the past week would have me think love is dead. Or dead on Valentine’s Day, at least. The excuses ran from “too much commercialization” to “every day should be Valentine’s Day, not just one day to show someone you love them.” While both […]

Imagine me an Imagineer

You know what I want to be when I grow up? I want to be the person who gets to embrace creativity and fun and actually make money doing it. Actually, that sounds a lot like blogging, except for possibly the making money side of things. I get to be creative, have fun, embrace my […]

When Dr. Oz Called Me Nuts

Screen Shot 2014-01-08 at 11.21.07 PM

I’ll admit that TV has always fascinated me. When I had early ambitions of becoming an actress, I had my whole career plotted out… I’d start off as a young ingénue on a popular soap opera. Small films and bit parts would trickle in until I had my breakthrough role in an indie film. Then, […]

The Hunger Games: Catching Chocolate

Fadra and Chocolate

If you think the title of this post is a misprint, you’re wrong. You see, for me, the REAL hunger games are about food. When I’m hungry and I want something to satisfy that hunger, lamb stew just doesn’t cut it. So in honor of a certain big movie that happened to come out this […]
