I don’t want to scare you but we just past Christmas in July and this means Christmas Day is less than 6 months away! Have you started your holiday shopping? I know I am not quite ready at all, ok I admit it I haven’t even started even a little bit. I am so off my game, I used to stock up the year prior and save, but with my work schedule I have not had the time, and I know I have to get moving.

Time to get gifts for aunts, uncles your parents, grandparents and friends. Now is the best time to start to load up on some great deals while you can. I have an amazing deal that I would like to share with you all. A great deal to double dip on savings when you shop at Kroger grocery stores.

Check out some fun new clips for Disney’s Pete’s Dragon in theaters 8/12/16! #PetesDragon



In less than a month Disney will be taking you on an epic adventure with the retelling of the classic story, Pete’s Dragon. To get you even more excited for this fun family film be sure to check out the amazing movie clips below. Pete’s Dragon flies into theatres everywhere on August 12th!
“Elliot Takes Pete for a Ride”
          
“I’m Out in Those Woods Every Day”
          
“He Says He Wasn’t Alone”
          

“Is Elliot Your Imaginary Friend?”
            
A reimagining of Disney’s cherished family film, “Pete’s Dragon” is the adventure of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliott, who just so happens to be a dragon. “Pete’s Dragon” stars Bryce Dallas Howard (“Jurassic World”), Oakes Fegley (“This is Where I Leave You”), Wes Bentley (“The Hunger Games”), Karl Urban (“Star Trek”), Oona Laurence (“Southpaw”) and Oscar® winner Robert Redford (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier”). 
The film, which is directed by David Lowery (“Ain’t Them Bodies Saints”), is written by Lowery & Toby Halbrooks based on a story by Seton I. Miller and S.S. Field and produced by Jim Whitaker, p.g.a. (“The Finest Hours,” “Friday Night Lights”), with Barrie M. Osborne (“The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring,” “The Great Gatsby”) serving as executive producer.
For years, old wood carver Mr. Meacham (Robert Redford) has delighted local children with his tales of the fierce dragon that resides deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. To his daughter, Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard), who works as a forest ranger, these stories are little more than tall tales…until she meets Pete (Oakes Fegley). Pete is a mysterious 10-year-old with no family and no home who claims to live in the woods with a giant, green dragon named Elliott. 
And from Pete’s descriptions, Elliott seems remarkably similar to the dragon from Mr. Meacham’s stories. With the help of Natalie (Oona Laurence), an 11-year-old girl whose father Jack (Wes Bentley) owns the local lumber mill, Grace sets out to determine where Pete came from, where he belongs, and the truth about this dragon. Disney’s “Pete’s Dragon” opens in U.S. theaters on August 12, 2016.

Why are Disney villains so easy to love and hate? Check out some cool new villains books from Disney Publishing.


For me sometimes the villain makes the movie, especially when it comes to Disney movie villains. They are the classic characters that really stand out and are the stars of the movies. They keep the movie exciting, and usually have a great backstory. Villains are the best characters, they can be sweet, endearing, or mean or just about anything...
From the Evil Queen to the Queen of Hearts to Mother Gothel villains come in all shapes and sizes. Have you ever wanted a book that told you facts and information about nearly every Disney villain? Well there is a great new book from Disney Publishing you are all going to love!


Disney Villains: Delightfully Evil  Author: Jen Darcy 
For decades, Walt Disney Animation and Pixar Animation Studios animated features have offered up some of the most iconic and malevolent villains. Disney Villains: Delightfully Evil showcases rare concept art and photographs and explores the villains’ creative origins, roles within the stories, and influences on and within pop-culture. The deluxe package collects villains by themes such as vain, family, royalty, instincts, and more. $40.00 available now. Ages- Adult.
When speaking about great Disney villains, I immediately think of my favorite villain, Ursula. She is the biggest and baddest of all time. (well in my opinion) she was sneaky, and nearly got away with her master plan. But what made Ursula, Ursula? Find out in the upcoming book Poor Unfortunate Soul, coming out on 7/26/16.
 Poor Unfortunate Soul Author: Serena Valentino

The third novel in Serena Valentino’s ( Fairest of All, Beast Within) “VILLAINS” trilogy, featuring the story of the Little Mermaid from the perspective of the sea witch Ursula. Retails for $17.99 Age Range: 10 - 14 Years. This book will be released on 7/26/16.

These are some wonderful books to add to your library, for tweens, teens and adults. If you are looking for a great gift idea for a graduation, or a birthday or even a good job on your report card gift, why not check out these fun new books from Disney Publishing.

Do you have a favorite Disney Villain?

From acclaimed writer/director Jeff Nichols, Loving celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving (portrayed by Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga), who married and then spent the next nine years fighting for the right to live as a family in their hometown.  Their civil rights case, Loving v. Virginia, went all the way to the Supreme Court, which in 1967 reaffirmed the very foundation of the right to marry – and their love story has become an inspiration to couples ever since.
                 

Loving will open in theaters in select cities on November 4, and will expand across the country later in November.

Check out these Spooky fun Haunted Mansion books from Disney Publishing!


When the crypt doors creak, and the tombstones quake, spooks come out for a singing wake… I know that song puts you in a Disney mood… A Haunted Mansion mood to be specific, it sure makes me think back to the fun my family and I have had on this great ride over the years. Are you a fan of Disney’s Haunted Mansion? Well it is time to get excited, there are two new book from Disney Publishing that will be sure to delight and scare you. 
Disney Parks Presents: The Haunted Mansion Purchase Includes a CD with Song! The song “Grim Grinning Ghosts,” composed in the late 1960s, continues to reside in the dark corridors and spooky cemetery of the Haunted Mansion. Millions of guests leave the mansion with not only a hitchhiking ghost but also this jaunty tune catching a ride all the way home.

Get a new summer look from Lane Bryant and save!


Have you taken a look into your wardrobe recently? Are there any looks in there that pop and are a fresh new look for this summer? I have to admit that when I look into my closet sometimes I marvel at the clothing I have in there... Is this top from high school? When were these pants last in style? I wanted to start this summer off right and pick up a new look.
I am not a tiny girl, I am a curvy girl who has embraced her curves. The one place I knew I could turn to for fashionable clothing that I know would fit me and look great is Lane Bryant. For those who may not be familiar with Lane Bryant, they are the most recognized name in clothing and accessories for sizes 14 through 28, Lane Bryant is all about self-confidence. The fashion that lets every woman be her most amazing self. It was time for me to be my most amazing self.

My usual look tends to turn to dark colors, black shirts and the like, because they have a "slimming" effect, but they are just so hot and uncomfortable in the summer. I wanted to find something stylish and light and pretty. With Lane Bryant this was amazingly easy, the selection of styles and sizes were astounding. You can shop from accessories to dresses to bathing suits to shoes and just about all of the fashion items in-between. After perusing the site I found this super cute outfit!
The outfit I chose included a super cute Geo-Trim Kimono $54.95 We're loving the kimono trend. And the dreamy drape and here-and-there dose of geo trim keep this one lighter than air. This light and airy top flowed in the breeze and was not like a “jacket” at all, this piece did not feel hot and heavy. I loved the detail the lace like trim was beautiful.
