Looking to take better pictures? Check out the amazing tripods with personality from MeFoto

Standing over an object and holding my breath was something I was accustomed to doing on a daily basis, being a blogger and getting the chance to review items means I need to take pictures of those items to put on my blog. My method was, quite frankly, AWFUL! I would take 40 pictures of an item hoping one of them looked great and even the “great pics” had flaws. I needed to change my style, get something to make me into a better photographer not just at home but on vacation too. That’s where MeFoto comes in with their vast array of tripods.
What makes MeFoto build your own tripod stand out against the rest of the tripods? Style. Why go with a generic, boring, black tripod when you can really step up your photo game and look like a million bucks doing it! With 12 color choices there are 792 possible combinations to put together. Here is a small sampling of what your tripod could be:

Experience the first film clip from Disney’s The Jungle Book movie in theaters April 15th #JungleBook

 Are you ready to take a visit back to the jungle? In a few weeks Disney’s latest movie The Jungle Book will be released. The live action movie, has all of the characters you loved from the classic cartoon. From the clip I have seen the animals are so realistic and the voices fit so very well. This movie hits theaters on April 15th! I know I will be celebrating the end of tax season by taking the family to see this spectacular Disney soon to be classic.

There is a  brand new immersive site for Disney’s The Jungle Book that was recently launched. Created exclusively by Disney on Tumblr, you can explore chapters like “Words to Live By: The bare necessities for a man cub to survive” and “In the Face of Danger: Learn about the Red Flower and Shere Khan.” New chapters will be revealed over the next two weeks featuring exclusive content from the film. Visit the site, to explore!

“Intro to Shere Khan” clip        
Directed by Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”), based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the free-spirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray).
Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa (voice of Scarlett Johansson), a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie (voice of Christopher Walken), who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire. The all-star cast also includes Lupita Nyong'o as the voice of the fiercely protective mother wolf Raksha, and Giancarlo Esposito as the voice of wolf pack’s alpha male Akela. “The Jungle Book” seamlessly blends live-action with photorealistic CGI animals and environments, using up-to-the-minute technology and storytelling techniques to immerse audiences in an enchanting and lush world. The wild adventure swings into theaters in 3D on April 15, 2016.

Colds are going around... Are you ready if sick just got real? #SickJustGotReal

I learned something quickly when I became a mother years ago, kids get sick and usually not at convenient times. As a baby my daughter was relatively cold free, she had sniffles and things like that but nothing really awful. I wasn’t prepared for what came next when she actually got to school and was around other germ incubators, kids are full of germs and no matter how many times you say don’t touch that….or that….and stay away from that! 

They love to spread the wealth around! You learn quickly what works well and what the kids will actually take without putting up a fight because medicine is yucky! Kids….they don’t realize that the “yucky” medicine is better now than when their parents were their age, and that you’d really rather have a cold than take a spoonful of medicine? I always try to be one step ahead of an illness, sometimes your caught unprepared and so we jet off to the nearest Target to grab something to help get the kid back on her feet because sometimes life can’t be interrupted by a cold.

Spring is almost here, it is so exciting, time to put away the snow boots and time to start enjoying the weather and some fun get togethers with family and friends.

We all piled into our tiny home for some movie fun! The kids loved checking out the wide variety of Peanuts Mcdonalds toys, they had a blast with those little guys! Before we stared the movie we began the movie night with a fun game of Uno, with a cool "The Peanuts Movie" edition.

Are you looking forward to seeing Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” starring all of your favorites from Captain America to Iron Man and so many more! As a Fan Girl you know I am excited! Be sure to check out the most recent trailer, and pics to get even more excited to see this great action packed movie. Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” opens in U.S. theaters on May 6, 2016. Here is a hint on who’s side I am on… #TeamCap Who’s Side are you on? 
Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. 
The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in twocamps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire  for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” opens in U.S. theaters on May 6, 2016.

Have a great Easter from Peanuts! Win a Easter Beagle Peanuts prize pack! #Giveaway‪ #‎EasterBeagle‬

Spring is just around the corner, which means we’ll soon be treated to the appearance of daffodils, cherry blossoms—and the Easter Beagle! Yes, our favorite chameleon beagle will be happily hopping from yard to yard, beagle-ears flapping, delivering brightly colored Easter eggs (and a beagle kiss or two) from his Easter basket. As a 2016 Peanuts Ambassador I have some fun Peanuts Easter items to share with you these will make any Peanuts fan happy. 

Sure the Peanuts Easter merchandise is terrific, but I have something even cooler to share with you…. Here are some fun facts about the history of the Easter Beagle*:   Snoopy first appeared as “the Easter Bunny” on April 14, 1968, but Charles Schulz did not give the character the name “the Easter Beagle” until three years later. 

In that first 1968 strip, Linus was the only one to witness “the Easter Bunny” dancing around the front yard and hiding eggs in the bushes—Lucy was too busy watching television to notice. On Sunday, April 11, 1971, the Easter Beagle made his official comic-strip debut. Again, Linus was the first one to interact with him (although it’s Lucy who gets the Beagle kiss!).  Here is one of my favorite cool facts, Charles Schulz once said in an interview that the Easter Beagle was his favorite of all of Snoopy's alter egos.
