Into the Unknown: Frozen 2 Red Carpet World Premiere and After Party

Thank you to Disney and The Geekly show for the opportunity to attend!

Have you ever stood in your own way of something so unbelievably amazing because you underestimated your gift and purpose? If you can relate, I'm sure looking back you've either kicked yourself repeatedly out of regret or you rose to the occasion and listened to the sirens of the universe pulling you towards greatness. When the application went out to attend the first-ever Geekly Retreat, I had such a surge of feelings that fluttered between excitement and self-doubt.

Fast forward to months later and I'm so glad that I pushed fear aside and applied. I've always been a true believer that "what's meant for you, will always be for you". Now I'm sitting here pinching myself while thinking of the many incredible moments we just experienced during a whirlwind 4 days this week in California. It's kind of surreal that as part of our retreat itinerary we attended Disney's Frozen 2 red carpet world premiere and after-party all thanks to the ladies of The Geekly Show.

Living in NYC as a freelance family and lifestyle writer, I have been honored to attend advanced movie screenings and to receive opportunities to interview celebrities and directors during press junkets over the last 5 years. Where we've been invited to a few movie premieres in the past, I'd never been invited to actually walk the red carpet.

Kid Reporters Attend NYC Premiere and Interview John Cena and The Cast of Playing with Fire

What's tougher, being a smokejumper battling dangerous wildfires, a wrestling superstar throwing down in the ring in front of thousands of audiences daily or juggling three witty, high energy kids who keep you on your toes? I'm sure if you ask the adult cast of Paramount Pics' new film Playing with Fire, they'd say that babysitting is no easy feat, even if they're just acting. This month NYC family bloggers and content creators had the chance to attend the Premiere of the family-friendly new film and our mini reporters were handed the mic to ask all the important questions to the cast and Director on everything from what inspires them, owning up to their mistakes & their fave hilarious moments in the movie.

Meet the Ooky Spooky Addams Family in Westfield New Jersey for AddamsFest

Imagine getting to celebrate Halloween with the creepy and cooky first family of scream, the Addams family in their home town! With their return to the big screen that’s exactly what you can do by heading to theaters for their first animated comedy feature premiering this October. Then, after the movie, take a trip with Lurch to Westfield, New Jersey for AddamsFest!!

Did you know that the creator of the original Addams Family New Yorker cartoons, Charles Addams, was in fact from this quaint yet eery little town in New Jersey? We had no idea and were intrigued by our visit to Westfield to tour where he grew up and see how the native son is celebrated with all the fandom of this iconic television family.

Nike Adventure Club: The New Sneaker Subscription Service Encouraging Play

Back to School is in full swing and you can usually call me last minute Susie, but this year I actually got a headstart on supply shopping. I'd been procrastinating & dreading hitting the stores to stock up on gym clothes, sports gear, and sneakers for our two boys who seem to outgrow everything at lightning speed and although they have a great personal style, they have absolutely no patience to shop. I

magine how intrigued I was when Nike invited us out to an exciting day on Governors Island to learn all about their newly launched sneaker subscription service. Nike Adventure Club is going to save parents time and spare in-store headaches by sending a new pair of cool sneakers directly to your active kids at home.
