Go see #Snatched Silly Fun, but meeting #GoldieHawn & #AmySchumer amazing!

IMG_1165Snatched was a silly fun movie, dumped by her boyfriend on the eve of their vacation, impetuous dreamer Emily Middleton (Amy Schumer) persuades her cautious mother, Linda (Goldie Hawn), to accompany her on an exotic getaway to South America.  Opposites, Emily and Linda must soon work through their differences to escape from a wildly outrageous and dangerous jungle adventure funny, entertaining. But the best part was meeting Amy and Goldie at TheMom's blogger movie premier event on Park Ave in New York City. The interview was serious at times but Amy true to herself was hysterical The moms interviewed and hosted Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn for a Mamaraazzi event in NYC for their new movie Snatched. They sat down with The MOMS to dish on the film and during the interview Amy admitted “her uterus remains empty for now, but she would like to have kids someday.” I also gave Amy Schumer a crystal for good energy and she liked it! I gave the one to Donald Trump too, hey we all need good energy, maybe on a higher level it will help. We all had a absolute blast and even all dance together in honor of #DanceforBreastCancerChallenge.

Encourage kids  and caretakers join in to play sports such as soccer, basketball, skateboarding or surfing, boogie board Remember all summer long wear comfortable shoes likes crocs  www.crocs.com so you can keep moving from the boat to the playground, beach and backyard.

The more you move the more you can build strength, coordination and mental stamina doing unplanned fun activities. Walk, local parks, to the store, church friends house, wherever your heart desires. Its calming to the mind and great for your body. Also you will find that you sleep better with the fresh air.SFVI1439

Earn a little money, have the kids clean out and sell there old toys and clothes. Also a good old fashion lemon aid stand is great, it teaches kids very quickly about money and dealing with people.2016-02-09 22.46.54-2

Set up an obstacle course packed with different challenges. This is so much fun, a egg on a spoon race, wheel barrel, water balloon challenge.

Book club and Art Club It’s a fantastic way for them to socialize and read a book.  Make it fun let your kids pick the book. Even if they just read a few chapters or draw pictures to join in the conversation its good constructive fun.IMG_7783

 

Movie night is great,  its fun to watch Dad’s favorite and Moms favorite comedies too. Very nostalgic and always a good conversation starter.

 

Meditate, in this busy world I know it’s hard to stop but just sit unplugged, for 5 minutes in  with your eyes closed unplugged.

You will see how you slowly increase to 10, 15 minutes. You will feel more refreshed and productive. A healthy mind and body makes you more productive and a better problem solver.

#KateHudson & #LucyLiu KUNG FU PANDA 3 MAMARAZZI®

Kung Fu Panda 3, opens today in theaters, I had a sneak preview. I especially liked this move because I'm a  Reiki Master and spiritual junkie, I believe in Karma, energy from the universe and trusting your chi.  I do believe this is the best Kung Fu Panda movie.  Everyone agreed, The Moms, press, bloggers, kids, we all loved it. I especially liked when we got up close and personal with Kate Hudson and Lucy Liu. Yes ladies they were great, very open and answered all our questions.

Nickolas F. Lumanpauw, my smart quick acting intern (www.g2organics.com) from Fordham University got the only "selfie" of the day with Kate Hudson. They had a great moment!

What I love about this particular movie is that it talks about  love and acceptance. Even if you have a birth father or an adoptive father it doesn’t really matter its your family or the people you surround yourself with. There is enough love to go around..” ~Lucy Liu,

IMG_6450IMG_6450IMG_6445The sponsors for the event were  LYNX FITNESS & CHEVY TRI-STATE. I can't believe I won the raffle for the home fitness package minus the personal trainer. I cant wait to get started.

#IVIVVA and #Luluemon, us girls LOVE! Great #style and #healthylifestyle #mamarazzi

#IVIVVA and #Luluemon, us girls LOVE! Great #style and #healthylifestyle #mamarazziIMG_5833

My favorite “The Moms” with our daughters at the Mamarazzi® event celebrate  a pop up store in Union Square, NYC. It was a great evening, fashion, music, health wellness with lots of smiles all embracing the culture of at the ivivva (ih-vee-vah) which is  actually a word made up. Ivivva believes that both the logo and the name represent the strength and beautiful individuality in all girls.

We watched a great fashion show, mingled, ate healthy and all oowed and awed at the fantastic models who did flips and cartwheels down the runway. One of our favorite models was 4 year old Gia also featured  School Yard Style.  Ivivva connects girls through movement and encourage them to dream big.

ivivva sparks and connects a global community of brave, compassionate and adventurous girls – to get involved, support each other and impact the world around them in their own unique way.

I personally love LuLuemon, and have been wearing for years, and they still look great. We also shopped the latestest fashions and were treated very very well!

The Pantone color report features New York Fashion Week Spring 2016 runway designers and their color infatuations along with Pantone’s Top 10 Color picks for the S/S 2016 season. “Colors this season transport us to a happier, sunnier place where we feel free to express a wittier version of our real selves,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. Additionally, “there are truly no perceivable distinctions in color choices between the men’s and women’s collections, both focus on a desire to breathe and reflect, then play.”

Top 10 Benefits of eating together,Family Dinners!

Top 10 Benefits of eating together,Family Dinners!

 I wanted to share the benefits of frequent family dinners, even if you know its always a good reminder. I see it as a positive way to reconnect and regroup. 

  • Everyone eats healthier meals. Even at restaurants people dinning together eat better
  • Kids are less likely to become overweight or obese.
  • Kids more likely to stay away from cigarettes.
  • They're less likely to drink alcohol.
  • They won't likely try drugs
  • School grades will be better.
  • You and your kids will talk more.
  • You'll be more likely to hear about a serious problem.
  • Kids will feel like you're proud of them.
  • There will be less stress and tension at home.

Even if you are not enjoying family dinners, here are some tips on getting started:

Build up slowly if you are not already regularly eating together, once a week for a while and then every other day, and then every day. Be flexible, some days it may not be possible for everyone to be there. 

Keep the meals healthy but simple, so that you don’t run out of time with too much cooking. 

Show them good table manners - actions always speak louder than words. They will learn to respect others around the table and take this with them when they leave the house. 

Even if its "takeout" still eat this at the table as a family. Show them that it doesn't’t matter what the food is, you still all want to eat together. 

Invite your children’s friends over for a family meal. Show the children that their friends are also invited to the table and that having friends over is not always about getting a take-away to eat in front of the television. 

• Make family meal times enjoyable. Happy talk! Rose and thorn of day!

Have the kids help, my daughter makes a great "side dish" and they are so tasty.
