tuckeblstbanner-300x217The reviews for TUCK EVERLASTING are in, and the critics are split…it turn out to be magical Broadway shows. I personally loved it, theater to me is pure relaxation and fun.  Though there are moments of brilliance in the music by Chris Miller, lyrics by Nathan Tysen, and direction and choreography by Casey Nicholaw, the heavy-handed book offers more challenges than rewards. The plot is satisfyingly streamlined, for all audiences of all ages. The acting is commendable overall, but the highlight of the show is Terrence Mann as The Man in the Yellow Suit, portrayed as a delightful carnival barker.  The costumes were beautiful. The singing and dancing magical. I loved this play, it’s a reminder to enjoy every stage of your life and truly I would not want to live forever, nor should we, but go to relive one of your favorite childhood stories.

Parenting cell phones, tips and reminders!

Unknown-2images-16images-8Parents and cell phones! I hate to pass judgment, but here are some tips and reminders why we need to be mindful. Everyone is clearly overusing cell phones its not only kids that are over using parents are too. Remember kids model adult behavior, this is how they grow to be functioning adults. It makes me crazy when I see a child and adult dining and the parent is ignoring the child talking to a friends or texting. Children need interaction with parents they need to feel acknowledged and secure, which helps them in their social skills and future self-esteem it begins when a baby smiles, the parent smiles back and laughs, so does mom and dad this is called “mirroring.”

Parents over use of cell phones around kids, can cause emotional and physical dangers,  When a parent is ignoring there child and always on the phone I call it the“emotional freeze out”, the poor kids have to compete with a phone, this causes a lot of anxiety for kids and they are start seeking attention any way they can get it. Kids also misbehave when they know there parents are distracted.

I don’t want to shame parents but here are guidelines that we can all use, even when we are working and taking kids on a outing at the zoo.

1.   Do not use the phone at meal time, engage with your  family  Have a phone basket during dinner every ones phone goes in the basket until meal time is over

2.   When at events WATCH your children, be engaged in the event, put your phone on vibrate and tell your other family member friends what you are doing so they wont be calling or texting you at that time

3.   If you are mobile working, hold your Childs hand or have help watching them if you are returning messages

4.   If you have a call to answer keep it brief, and don’t get into long conversations 

5.   Speak softly, respect surroundings

6.   Remember you don’t have to be in constant contact

7.Send out a auto response that “I'm unavailable , if its a emergency call this number 

8.Dont be looking at your phone crossing street, driving, and at the movies with the bright light

 9. Show children by example, if I hear one more  stupid, waste of time conversation while standing on line, as the kids run around I'm going to say "excuse me, but…"  

10. I also think that parents need to help each other out, if you have a important call to make during a outing I know most moms would have no problem keeping a eye on your child for a few minutes.

11. If you need to check your phone, acknowledge the people you are with and say excuse me, I have to check my phone.

 
Respect people, respect the surroundings, respect your children and most conversations and texting are just a distraction from dealing with real life.
ENGAGE and stay in the moment.http://www.marketwatch.com/story/parents-heres-the-no-1-reason-you-should-get-off-your-cellphones-2016-06-06

#Earth Day should be everyday, #Green Chic Lifestyle! Im sharing a great BLOG!

 I just love this blogger and blog and wanted to share!

Earth Day: Green Chic Lifestyle!

WELCOME
 

 

My 2015 Beauty Finds

 

Happy Earth Day 2016! To celebrate such an important occasion, I have curated a special selection of mouth-watering items that will make your life easier and more environmentally-conscious. Who said that green couldn't be chic?
 

(Psst… Follow the pretty bold pink links to learn more about the products!)
 

1. Lavender aromatherapy candle by Lather ($10): This gorgeous candle is made exclusively with natural ingredients. Manufactured with paraffin-free and 100% natural soy wax, a spun cotton wick, lavender essential oil and lavender buds, this wonderful candle quickly scents the room with a soothing and calming fragrance. This is one of my personal favorite candles to pair with a relaxing bath or for burning after a stressful day, right before I go to bed.
 
2. Organic Manuka Honey Lozenges by Wedderspoon ($11.99): Want to bring some USDA Organic Certified goodness in your life? These eucalyptus lozenges are a life saver. Chock-full with manuka honey and bee propolis, they are great to soothe raspy throats without synthetic nasties. Since I discovered them, I always carry a few lozenges in my purse- with this crazy New York spring weather you never know what to expect!
 
3. Organic mini bath bombs by G2 Organics ($15): The perfect companion for the lavender aromatherapy candle, these small bombs are big in natural contents. One bath bomb is enough to draw a relaxing bath that also soothes and calms the skin (mine is extremely dry, and I have found these beauties also leave it hydrated. Yay!) The set of mini bath bombs includes six amazing scents: Amber, Passion fruit, Mango Cilantro, Aqua Blueberry, Pink Sugar and Fresh Apple (my personal favorite.)
 
4. Garden-in-a-can by Back to the Roots ($23.96/ 4-pack):  Do you have a green soul but lack the skills to keep your plants alive? Well, you've just found your soul mate: I sometimes believe I left my green hand back in Spain. This wonderful invention by Back To The Roots allows you to plant non-GMO/ USD organic-certified basil (shown in picture), cilantro, sage, and dill in the comfort of your own windowsill. As easy as opening the can, putting the seeds, and watering them, this cute kit allows makes it fun and easy to harvest your own organic herbs. With no chemicals and no messy drainage holes, this garden-in-a-can is the perfect companion for my wardrobe-sized apartment in Gotham, and makes it the ideal companion for families who want to initiate their kids in the wonders of healthy agriculture (and healthy eating!).
 
5. Pure Castile Rose Liquid Soap by Dr. Bronner ($10.99/ 16 oz.): This liquid soap boasts one of the cleanest vegetable oil-based formulas out there. Made with organic and certified fair-trade ingredients, Dr. Bronner's soap is created after the original formulas originating from the Castile region in Spain, with which I'm personally acquainted. Vegetable oil-based Castile soaps have been used in my country for centuries, and I'm really glad to report that Dr. Bronner's formula is very much what I expected.

This is a genuinely ecological and simple soap that can be used for almost anything: To clean your face, your body, or even your home – it's a great ally to wash food, do the dishes, get a sparkling laundry, mop your floors, or clean your pets– with no synthetic preservatives, detergents or foaming agents. This means no Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfate, a common chemical detergent to which I am extremely allergic. I personally use Dr. Bronner's Pure Castile Liquid Soap to clean my kitchen and my bathroom; by mixing it with baking soda, it attacks the toughest grease stains. However, and because it is a very concentrated formula, you need to dilute it to get the best results. You can visit Dr. Bronner's blog here for suggestions on how to make the most of this wonderful product.

6. Hanging Air Plant Terrarium by Maker's Kit ($24, featured here with a black display stand from Amazon): This cute DIY green kit includes a hanging glass bubble, preserved moss and lichen, decorative rocks, a water atomizer, a Tillandsia plant, and an easy-to-follow set of instructions to take care of the lil' guy. You only need to provide a sunny spot for your new friend!

#Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel perfect for#kids Birthday Party

 

Sheraton New York Time Square #kids #parties, oh yes! I highly recommend it was a blast, for Mom and Dad too!

Parents, do you have fun at your kids party? I think last year when the Hawaiian luau had to be moved indoors because of the storm, and I had to cancel the flame throwers and hire my trainer from the gym to entertain, as well as the zumba teacher to be the Hula dancer, I said to myself the next year I'm having a fun, stress free party. I love my daughters birthday, she was born on Mothers's Day so its always a special to me. I've done sleepovers, backyard Hawaiian parties, spa parties, Lady bug party, Alice in Wonderland, Broadway, Candy Land. Even when I have it at a restaurant, its still lugging decorations, gift bags, and the after party party! This year I wanted to do something that was enjoyable for my husband and myself. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed all the other parties but this year I left it to  to the incredible, professionals at Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide.

​We all had the best time, the service and attention to detail was beyond. When we walked into the adjoining suites  and balloons, elegant hand written birthday note, chocolate covered strawberries, apple cider champagne, cake music playing  more, it set the mood for a fabulous celebration.The manager, and staff were attentive, engaged and made the party effortless. We all had the best time!

#Dr.Oz and #Manuka #Honey and my favorite #Wedderspoon!

Dr.Oz show, I'm the Beauty Expert giving my Manuka Honey anti wrinkle mask recipes and benefits of honey the organic beauty. from Cherie Corso on Vimeo.

The benefits of honey are amazing, as demonstrated on Dr.Oz my favorite is Manuka Honey which promotes skin regeneration, repairs cellular damage and lessens appearance of wrinkles.

Hydrates: When applied to your skin, manuka will hold in moisture and absorb moisture from the air for a dewy, glowing complexion.

Anti-aging: Because of its moisturizing properties, manuka retains moisture without making skin oily, the first step in wrinkle-free skin.,helps slow down enzymes that destroy collagen.

My favorite is Wedderspoon brand, because I know its pure, not mixed with fillers like some other brands you can purchase at  http://wedderspoon.com. On the Dr Oz  show, I showed my favorite manuka honey mask, it is with cinnamon and apply it as a mask. Steam your skin, pay dry and apply a thin layer of manuka blended with a pinch of cinnamon. Leave on for 20 minutes and gently wipe off. Close pores after by rinsing with cold water. Use the same mixture as a spot treatment and leave on overnight to see blemishes disappear.

Cleanser: Add a few drops of hot water to a quarter-sized dollop of  Wedderspoon Manuka and cleanse massage around your entire face for three minutes (make sure you're not wearing any makeup). Gently wipe off with a washcloth or sponge for extra exfoliation.

Dark spot treatment: To fade acne scars, brighten and resurface the skin, mix a quarter-sized dollop of  Wedderspoon manuka, fresh-squeezed lemon and a teaspoon of olive oil. Massage mask into steamed skin and allow the mixture to work its magic for 20 minutes. Rinse and close pores with cool water.

Manuka honey is often graded as "12+ or "16+," which indicates its concentration of beneficial compounds and antioxidants, so the higher the number, the stronger the antibiotic effect.  http://wedderspoon.com

Don’t Judge a PREZ By The Cover! It’s all in the face!

What do facial features tell us about our REPUBLICAN presidential candidate? The FACE tells it all . http://www.newmediapatriotradio.com/conservative-blog/2016/2/5/episode-19-what-do-facial-features-tell-us-about-our-republican-presidential-candidate-the-face-tells-it-all What does each presidential candidate features say about them? I have been studying by face reading for over 20 years. Face reading is Chinese art of Face Reading over 2000 years old, is an ancient form of physiognomy and entails the use of the face and facial characteristics to evaluate key aspects of a person just how much you can learn about a person just from just their eyes, ears, mouth, nose and eyebrow, and I love reading hands too. One can tell a lot. We hear wise tails and nicknames for certain features that in many cases turn out to be true. For example stubby fingers “grabby person”, at least this is what my grandmother would say and I have found it to be true. The FBI have many files on certain characteristics, Journal of Social, Evolutionary, and Cultural Psychology, Jeffrey M. Valla, Stephen J. Ceci, and Wendy M. Williams of Cornell University show that people can tell criminals and noncriminal apart simply by looking at their still photos . This is groundbreaking proof in todays world, but the practice of face reading has existed for thousands of years not just in China. I like taking a look at the faces of our presidential candidates. I can tell you a more about he candidate’s them by their features, then what they say and who will be the best president. Favorable and unfavorable facial features. The placement, flashiness, position, I have been practicing in a non-judgmental way for years. Eye movement, looking up to right is lying, unsure, the way the eyes move. Everything on the face means something, for example big ears like president Obama has, means listener, always listening, never taking action. Now small ears tiny ears, means selective hearing and selfish. Based on my years of face reading this is my read on our REPUBLICAN presidential candidate – See more at: http://www.cheriecorso.com/?p=2076#sthash.1Qc6cOAL.dpuf

Speak Up Women Conference at The United Nations NYC

Why and when to speak up!
 

Speak Up Women Conference

Chasing the dream of life balance is exhausting. We, as women, spend more time giving to everyone else, leaving ourselves bankrupt. As the nurturers of the world, we are born with an innate gift to give; however, when we decide to give to ourselves, it is looked at as selfish. Some of us hate telling people no in fear of disappointing them at the cost of our sanity. That mentality has stopped many successful women reach their full potential in life and in business.

I am compelled to write to you to give you the confidence boost you need to come out of the shadows and speak up, demanding the life you deserve. You have a voice and hopefully these 5 steps will help you find it and ignite the inner strength you need to finally SPEAK UP!

 

Step One – Realize everyone is NOT going to like you.

The first thing I think every woman entrepreneur should understand is that your gifts and talents are not for everyone and that’s okay. As you understand your purpose, you will attract all those kindred spirits that you were sent for. Have you noticed that many entrepreneurs will name their audience?

Names like tribes, societies, newbies, armies, etc. are given to give them a sense of inclusion and letting your audience know you were sent for them and them alone. You’re either in the tribe or you’re not. The more you focus on the people that don’t like you, the less time you will be able to focus on the audience that’s waiting for someone just like you to speak directly to them.

Step Two – Believe you have a lot to offer.

You’ve probably said one hundred times, “Why would anyone want to listen to me?” Or, “that’s been done already, so why bother?”

Speak Up #2

When I got the idea to start G2 Organics, I didn’t look at all the other product lines out there. I knew that my beliefs and ideas were worth all the money and work to get it in the hands of customers around the world.

I believed so much in my voice that I couldn’t keep silent about it. Regardless of how many people have done it before you, no one will be able to transform that idea using your feminine energy and knowledge. Every trial, failure, and victory has led you to this moment. Seize it!

Step Three – Understand the role of competition.

We are bombarded by society to be in constant competition with each other. If you’ve seen two celebrities wear the same outfit on the red carpet, the headline the next day will read, ‘Who wore it better?’ For the single ladies at weddings, they fight to the death for the bride’s bouquet. There’s no need to be defensive and even snippy with other women. Realize that we are greater in numbers and the community that you’re able to build will elevate your thinking and status in so many ways.

I challenge you to find at least two like-minded women that can give you the much needed motivation to keep going. They will feed the woman that you are and the entrepreneur that you’re striving to be. These women will hold you accountable to your goals and a little friendly competition never hurt.

 

Step Four – Prepare for success.

I love to hear people say, “She came out of nowhere!” In reality, no she didn’t. There were years of planning and preparation before anyone knew her name. It takes a lot of work to be spontaneous. If you have an important meeting scheduled, show up early and have a pre-meeting, breaking the ice with conversation. When you’re in a relaxed state, your feminine energy shines and your mind is clear to communicate your ideas effectively.

Speak Up #3

The more you prepare that speech, presentation, or meeting, you are giving yourself room to adjust to last minute changes. You are able to simply acknowledge life’s hiccups and make the immediate adjustments. Luck is your preparation that meets the opportunities.

Step Five – Take the physical and emotional risks as an entrepreneur.

As an entrepreneur your greatest successes will come out of your greatest failures. You’re going to have to take the leap out of your comfort zone to take the risks necessary to get results. Some of our favorite inventions like the microwave, chocolate chip cookies, and even the potato chip were all products of the inventor’s mistake. Having your own business is exciting and exhilarating, but never lose  your ability to throw your ideas to the walls and see what sticks.

As a wife, mother, and businesswoman, I wear many hats and sometimes I amaze myself when I get it all done. It takes work, but it’s not as hard as you think. Every no is one step closer to a yes! Will you be ready?

I look forward to meeting you at the Speak Up Women Conference on March 5th at the United Nations and hearing about your experience!
