Celebrate Innovation with the 2016 Product of the Year Winners #Giveaway #POYUSA2016

With 50,000 new consumer products introduced each year, when purchasing products for your home and family how do you come to the decision on what's worth your hard earned dollars? Although it may initially spark my interest, just because I've seen the new trendy product in a commercial or magazine ad it doesn't necessarily mean that brand is going to get me to run out to the store or buy it online. I'm a huge fan of reading reviews and word of mouth recommendations, sometimes I make my decisions based solely on how many stars or thumbs up a product receives before purchasing. Haven't you ever wondered what goes into the voting process when a product is named as one of the BEST?

This year I attended the Product of the Year Awards where the most innovative products were

The Angry Birds Movie Cast Celebrates International Day of Happiness #AngryBirdsHappyPlanet

International Day of Happiness

How could anyone be angry when thinking about all the ways to make our planet a happier place to live in? Our red feathered, eyebrow scowling favorite Angry Bird "Red" joined the United Nations to help spread the word and encourage everyone to take action against climate change and it's impacts. The International Day of Happiness 2016 presentation included the movie's US stars Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad and Maya Rudolph as well as producers John Cohen and Catherine Winder, who asked the attendees for their support to make the Angry Birds happy.

"We are incredibly honored that Red from 'The Angry Birds Movie' has been named as the Honorary Ambassador for Green.  While Red may still look angry, we know that he's smiling on the inside. As we say in our 'Help Red Go Green' campaign, nothing makes an angry bird happier than a healthy planet.  In partnership with the UN, we are very excited to help raise awareness of critical global issues such as climate change," said John Cohen, producer of "The Angry Birds Movie" and "Despicable Me.

Despite living in NYC all of my life, visiting the UN was a first for me & definitely a one of a kind blogger moment.  I was so honored to be in attendance that day and happy to be in the company of my blogger babe Natalie Diaz of 

The cast presented the "Help Red Go Green" materials including public service announcements created to support the campaign. By participating in the #AngryBirdsHappyPlanet campaign, individuals can make the AngryBirds happy and "Help Red Go Green" by posting photos and messages to show how they are protecting our planet by recycling, taking public transportation and conserving water, for example.

After United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon named Red as Honorary Ambassador for Green, the campaign was presented to hundreds of young people in the iconic General Assembly Hall of the United Nations.

Licensed to Move: Imagination Movers in Concert

Family Fun in NYC

As parents, we have all employed the power of music for the benefit of our kids. The exposure to varying types of music from lullabies to nursery rhymes, theme songs of their favorite shows, to even simple and unique melodies we make up for our children play an important role in our kids’ development. I tend to let my musical side come out by constantly making melodies for my three year old baby girl of the most mundane things. She is a lover of music and so I have found that is a great way to reach her even in her crankiest of moments. There is no better feeling for us than to find that magical way where we can entertain our children while teaching them.

Must Haves For Lil' Monsters: Natural Skincare Line #AcureBaby

Natural skincare for baby

Disclosure: I was invited as media to attend the Acure Baby launch party. This is a sponsored post & opinions expressed are 100% my own.
Recently, I was browsing through one of my pregnant girlfriend’s baby registry and I surprised myself by hovering over the “baby care” section much longer than I intended. The list of lotions, creams, ointments and soaps caught my attention because almost all of them were “natural”, “green”, “organic” or some combination of those. It made me realize how much the market has changed since I compiled my very first baby registry 9 years ago.

Empowering the Next Generation of Girl Entrepreneurs at The Curls Girls Luncheon #CurlsGirlsRule

Girls Empowerment

To live our best life, honestly isn't that what we are all striving for? It's funny how life comes full circle and you realize that many of the interests you had as a child and teenager are possibly the very same ones that would fuel your passions into adulthood. I've always loved to express myself creatively whether through my lyrically poetic writings, collages and vision boards plastered over every wall and door or while hanging film in my college's dark room after an afternoon of people watching and snapping pics in Central Park. And although I'm proud of my accomplishments, my degree in Forensic Psychology, my experience as a pre-school teacher while working on my Master's Degree,  I get the goosies just thinking about bringing my passion projects {like} to fruition and encourage other women often on stepping out of the box or rather taking leaps out of the box to foster their true callings.

TextureMedia & Target Celebrate Curls, Coils and Waves with Texture on the Runway #NYFW

Variety. Assortment. Mixture. Contrast.... it seems these days whether discussing popular award shows, or the appearance of multi-ethnic models on the runway, if you've seen the hashtags #oscarssowhite or #blackmodelsmatter,  DIVERSITY has been a big topic of discussion everywhere. 


Disney Pixar Movies

"Just keep swimming, Just keep swimming"..... I remember when my now 11 year old would hum these words to himself at 3 years old while completely mesmerized by the adventurous and humorous film Finding Nemo. Who didn't find themselves giggling at Dory's hysterical moments of forgetfulness and her endearing personality and witty bits of knowlege as she helped Marlin the clown fish while braving the perils of the ocean all to rescue his son Nemo.
