Our family and my daughters BFF went to the movie premier of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, I do love going to the movies, I love to just sit in a theater munch on my popcorn, and be entertained, its one of my guilty pleasures. This premier hosted by The Moms, Denise Albert, Melissa Musen Gerstein with a special treat to meet the star of the movie, SNL's Bill Hader, who is a sweetheart! He answered all the kids questions with facts and kindness and humor. This guy just cracks me up by looking at him…what can I say.
“Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2,” from Sony Pictures Animation, it reminded me of Jurassic Park meets Avatar, both great stories but this was acted out by food animal hybrids. It also had a father-and-son bonding, friendship lessons and an overall exciting ride for the entire family. This fun movie movie opens Sept. 27. The movie picks up where the other one left off in a big food mess.After the disastrous food storm in the fist Cloudy movie, Flint Lockwood, (voice was Bill Hader)r and his pals are forced to leave town. Flint agrees to work for his idol Chester V at Live Corp, a company which has been hired to clean the island from the over-abundance of food left from the first movie. I was surprised the movie was rated "PG" but I guess it can get a little scary when a cheese burger with French fry legs is chasing you or a taco wants to play with you.
I liked the movie, my daughter feel in love with the little food-i-mals strawberry and marshmallows. I saw some 3 year olds going into the theater and did not hear any screams, so I assume they were not scared and enjoyed it. The "celebration" button was my personal favorite part along with the animal vegetables and the funny one liners.
The other cast members were Anna Faris, Benjamin Bratt, Terry Crews, Neil Patrick Harris, Andy Samberg, Schaal, Will Forte and James Caan from co-directors Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn. The film is written by Judi Barrett (characters), Ron Barrett (characters), John Francis Daley (screenplay), Jonathan M. Goldstein (screenplay), Erica Rivinoja (story and screenplay), Phil Lord (story) and Chris Miller (story). The film is rated “PG” for mild
This event was fantastic, box sandwiches were proved by subway to nibble on during the movie and gift bags. I also got SPOT remover. Never turn down a breath mint or spot remover that my motto.
After leaving the AMC theater in Lincoln Center, of course hungry " where are we going to eat" after this movie, we ran into the opening of the New York Philharmonic Symphony. This night is pure NYC star power, CEO's, sponsors, old young all looking snappy and chic, of course always a chubby guys in tuxedos with a young model on arm. The energy was electric at Lincoln center, always a "step and pose" photos, reporters, and security.
I ran smack ran into Alec and Hilaria Baldwin they were being interviewed about The Philharmonic Symphony, I love Alec Baldwin he has a passion for life and his family. What drives him can also hurt him, I don't like the "bar room" style antics reported in the New York Post, … as I said what drives him and can hurt him. I'm so happy that he found LOVE, that he is married to Hilaria, a yogi and fellow spiritual person. I gave her a Reiki charged crystal and she, knew immediately that I was sending her good energy. I can feel that she is a calming energy to Alec. They just had a baby girl, and as a Mom I know its so hard to leave your baby, even thorough you want to go out to a fabulous night like the symphony with your husband .Its a balance that every new Mom struggles with. I am sending them good energy and continued success. The frequency is very high around them, I wanted to chat with her but it was not the time or place.Hilaria looked stunning in red strapless dress, the perfect color for grounding and power, her skin was flawless and Alec dashing in his tuxedo I like his hair salt and pepper, not colored looks great natural and very manly!!
Manhattan Manhattan you never disappoint!
THE Cake Boss!! Every kid seems to know who Buddy is, my daughter loves this show. She had me watch back to back to back episodes. Being a very visual person, I was mesmerized by the beautiful cakes and the family dynamics. I did a "reality show" so I am very familiar with the manipulation and stagged antics, but who cares. This show makes a beautiful product and I loved all the personalities in the bake shop. They are not mean spirited, and all have one goal to satisfy the customer and create. So when my daughter said she wanted to visit Carlos's Bakery, in Hoboken I was in. The only thing I honestly knew about Hoboken, NJ is that's where Frank Sinatra's from. There is no doubt people are big fans of TLC's "Cake Boss" show. , so the excursion to Hoboken , Carlo's Bakery — home of the "Cake Boss" began.
We took the ferry from NYC, SeaPort Authority and then walked to Carlo's City Hall Bake Shop, it was a long walk from the ferry to Carlos's bakery, we stopped for lunch along the way at one of the many restaurants they have along Washington Street.
Carlo's City Hall Bake Shop
95 Washington St., 201-659-3671
Finally when we go there, I thought we could just walk in, and for some reason crazy thought we would see Buddy, get a tour, something..but when we arrived we were shocked SHOCKED to see a line across the street in front of CVS. A man from the bakery came out and handed us a number, I don't like to wait in lines (who does on a hot day) but for my daughter we waited one hour. I have to say it was not that bad waiting, we met people from all over the world who wanted to visit. I met a women from Finland and she knew all the episodes and said that this was on her to do list when she was visiting NYC. On line the anticipation started to build, as crazy as that sound to taste this cake!! When our number was called, we went into the small store front bakery, packed with people buying cookies, cakes. T-shirts, autographed mugs, DVD's.
No tour, No Buddy, No sisters just very nice people taking your order. We bought it all the cake, T-shirts, Mug, cookies (which were excellent). My daughter wanted the beach cake with the surf boards and brown sugar sand. It was one layer chocolate filled with fudge and the bottom layer vanilla. The cake was moist and very flavorful, it cost $50.00 for a small cake…eeekkkk but her it was part of the experience. It was a full day event and IM glad we did it. Since then I have learned if you just want a Cake Boss cake, there is a store in Time Square, and supper markets carry them.
My advice would be to go very early in the morning, or near the end of the day the line will be less, also buy extra cookies because when you get home everyone wants to sample. I also hear that Buddy Valastro does visit occasionally but don't expect to meet him then the kids won't be disappointed.

Debra Atlas: The Hickey Stick covers more than embarassing hickies
By Debra Atlas
Saturday, August 10, 2013I recently tested a product called The Hickey Stick, an organic two-step concealer/cover-up stick from G2Organics.
Used by both men and women, its thick, rich formula gives easy coverage. It works well to cover breakouts, scars, bruises, tattoos, razor cuts — and embarrassing hickies. It can even be used under eye shadow to conceal those dark circles.
Cherie Corso, one of G2Organics’ co-founders, says her daughter even uses The Hickey Stick to treat mosquito bites.
The Hickey Stick is made with non-toxic natural and organic ingredients. It contains no parabens, phthalates, petrolatum or lanolin, but includes ingredients such as rosemary, zinc oxide and Vitamin E.
Corso, an entrepreneur and a print model, and her partner, Marie Elena Lamarie, a finance major, entrepreneur and cosmetologist, take health and healing to heart. Since launching their company in 2009, they have become a leader in green beauty, producing safe, organic, eco-friendly, non-toxic products good for both consumers and the environment.
Both women are Reiki Master healers. A hands-on healing method, Reiki plays a part in all the products their company offers. All of their products are Reiki charged or imbued with Reiki healing energy.
Corso has been a guest on the Dr. Oz show, interviewed by the Wall Street Journal and other noted venues about her company and its natural products. She realizes that not everyone can do everything organic. But, she says, “If you do one or two things (green) in your beauty routine, you help lessen the impact of the chemicals you’re using on your body (and) in the environment.”
“Every little bit helps,” she said.
The Hickey Stick is a two-stick, two-step system. The first stick acts as a primer to mark what you want to conceal. The second stick neutralizes the first, to give even coverage. It’s available in both light and dark shades to match any skin tone.
Priced at $24.95 for two sticks, a portion of sales goes to help cancer research.

Visual comedy, life lesson and cute little blue guys is a winning formula for cast and Raja Gosnell the director of The Smurfs 2. I saw the movie in NYC at a blue carpet screening, it was very exciting for my daughter to meet the smurfs, okay I loved it too, they were so cuddly and cute!! Hank Azaria who played Gargame was there too, he kills me, I have liked him since his roll in Pretty Woman with Julia Roberts, remember?? He walked into the room with out a cape and said "Hello my little Smurfs", my ten year old loved it, some of the kids got scared but it was so funny. YES YES I wanted a picture, but we stepped back and let the photogs do their thing. We took the moment, sometimes like all of us we take everything in through camera, so we stayed in the moment and I just felt the energy. Honestly I was "NY COOL" with Hank but could not contain myself when I ran in to Dan Abrams legal analyst at Dan Abrams (danabrams) on Twitter ABC News Good Morning America with his family. He is just a nice smart man,
I had to give him a crystal for continued positive energy. I just respect his legal opinion on cases he always breaks it down and has a logical point of view. I just appreciate his authentisy vs some of the blow hards I see and hear on TV. Anyhow back to the movieThe Smurfs 2 | Official Movie Site | Sony Pictures
The Smurfs have been just smuffing since their 2011 big-screen outing, but there’s trouble stirring in their new adventure-comedy that will require their mix of optimism and silly enthusiasm to resolve the wraith of Sorcerer Gargamel (Hank Azaria).
The movie had a vibe of happiness, and beloning to a family. I enjoyed the NewYork City scenes and Katy Perry Katy Perry (katyperry) on Twitterwas just the perfect! We all went to the party at Dylan's Candy Bar.
The birthday of Smurfette’s (Katy Perry) KATY PERRY // Official Website // presents the opportunity for her to recall her conflicted origins – rather than a “true-blue” Smurf, I just love the picture above from the LA event in THE SUN, she was actually Gargamels daughter and raised by Popa Smurf. Because she was always shown unconditional love and respect she was a true Smurf, but always had bad dreams about not being "a real Smurf". Gargamel (Hank Azaria)Hank Azaria (HankAzaria) on Twitter, has a evil plan to kidnap her from her enchanted-forest home to obtain the formula for the magical Smurf-essence that Papa Smurf (Jonathan Winters) used to originally blessed her with blue skin. Once he has the secret, Gargamel plans to power up a host of Naughties, Smurf-sized creatures he’s created, to help him take over the world. The kids in the theater loved and feared Gargamel. It reminded me of how I felt about Crella de Vil the antagonist from 101 Dalmatians.
So he sent his Naughty daughter Vexy (Christina Ricci)http://www.christinaricci.ws to drag Smurfette through a magic portal and into the real world where he can toy and manipulate her inherent identity issues. Papa Smurf and his mismatched extraction team consisting of Grouchy (George Lopez),http://www.christinaricci.ws Clumsy (Anton Yelchin) and Vanity (John Oliver) will have to portal to the live-action world to reunite in Paris with his beautiful sweet young family of Patrick (Neil Patrick Harris) Neil Patrick Harris (NPHnews) on Twitter and Grace (Jayma Mays) Winslow, their live-action counterparts from the original movie, if they’re to have any chance of rescuing Smurfette.
Belgian Smurfs comic-strip originator PierreCulliford adds some visual interest, with Paris as the backdrop for the Smurfs’ rescue and recovery mission, I did enjoy the backdrop of Paris but NYC is where the action is. I loved the use of crystals in the movie, finally the recognition of the power of crystals in being recognizes. Thank YOU!
The Smurfs director Raja Gosnell (Beverly Hills Chihuahua, Scooby Doo) understand the power of cuteness, and deliverers with the Smurfs’ big-screen return. With the understanding of entertaining adults and kids he entertained us the audience enjoyed repeating lines, gags and life lessons. I likes the Smurf "talk" and the silliness, of the adjectives as names. I was able to sit back with my family and relax as well as be entertained. OMG I almost forgot to tell you to watch for this part….the "apartment scene" is so funny at the beginning of the movie with narsistic, self absorbed, parenting scene, when they give the little boy a Birthday party, is very funny. It personifies the "kookiness" and need for "PC" in parent's minds . I loved it, I wanted to jump up and scream YES YES see how nutty it's gotten.
In his final film role, Jonathan Winters reprises the beneficent Papa Smurf with the requisite twinkle in his voice, but compassionately understands Katie Perry’s bewildered, wounded and ultimately outraged Smurfette. Harris and Mays, as the parents of a young boy appropriately named “Blue” (JacobTremblay), acquit themselves good-natured enough, although it's Brendan Gleeson as Patrick’s well-intentioned but misunderstood stepfather, Vince Winslow, who is my favorite, shines throughout the movie even when he is a bird he is hysterical. Azaria ahain makes the movie, he is brilliant as the bumbelling wizard with the bad teeth. The unrelenting, team of Smurf rescuers featuring Lopez George Lopez (_George_Lopez__) on Twitter , Yelchin and Oliver were very funny.
Overall I loved this movie and also check out my favorite The Moms in Chicogo at the MAMARAZZI EVENT, http://themoms.com They were fantastic!

I just love going to the movies, I love the shared experience with my family and being in a theater, AMC Loews 34th Street 14 – New York, New York 10001 – AMC Theatresespecially if its a thrilling movie, I love the 3D, the smell of popcorn,the big screen, going to the theater, finding a seat, putting on my 3D glasses and being transported. I know today the home experience is so good, on your comfortable couch, with snacks, the family and the dog on your lap. It's sometimes hard to justify the time ,effort and expense, to go to the movies, but trust me this movie is worth it. The Wolverine | Official Movie Site | View Trailers | NOW PLAYING The action scenes had us screaming and cheering in and out of our seats. Hugh Jackman was exciting, his true energy and high frequency jumped off the screen. He humanizes, a comic character. If your not familiar with the comic, you will still enjoy this movie. This does have , blood, a little swearing in the right places and a great story line. I liked the message about Karma and repaying debts and that sometimes things aren't as they appear and people have different motives. I think this can open up conversation with your children in a exciting current way. In the movie the car of choice was the Audi The Wolverine Teams Up With Audi For Promotional Content | Comicbook.com , I am in love with this car. The cars World Class reputation delivered! The chauffeured Audi picked us up and drove us around all day. We went to lunch and shopped on Madison Ave, as the car waited for us outside. Okay as a NewYorker, we see it all and are so use to seeing beautiful cars that most people don't even notice. I have to tell you my experience, everywhere we went in this car, heads were turned people even snapped pictures. We felt like movie stars, this car Audi delivered the whole experience. The performance of this car on the open road was far superior then my car. I personally would love to buy this car.
The Wolverine, 2013 American-Australian superhero film featuring the Marvel Comics character Wolverine, starring my favorite Hugh Jackman. I think this movies one is the best, he brings a adrenalin filled performance that we viewed on the AMC Empire 25 3D theater was thrilling to watch, the claws, even the fashion Viper wore had me reeling. I will be sporting the black leather gloves with gold studs at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 2014.
Okay now lets get to the good part as promised," what Hugh Jackman was really like in person?" The Mamarazzi event hosted by The MOMS Denise Albert and Melissa Musen Gerstein delivered him right to the theater (thanks girls). Security was tight, cameras filming. People snapping pictures. I was so lucky with a random seat I picked, he brushed right by me. He was tall and muscular, smelled very "clean" not heavily cologne, his energy was positive. I did my quick "energy Chakra scan", on him. I felt heat coming from his shoulders, I could tell he had a lot on his mind, he is a thinker, very smart. He handled the media and fans with grace and had a humble confidence. A genuine nice guy, a hard worker, family man. He talked about his family and not being away from them more then two weeks. I liked that. My daughter could not wait to ask him a question. She was brought to the front.
As a kid who loves to swim and spends a lot of time in the pool. I notice as temperatures climb , I find myself going for a cold dunk in the pool. Swimming is most peoples favorite summer activity. It's a body workout thats fun. But there is one bad side about swimming in the pool, it has so much chlorine
"Chlorine is used as a disinfectant to kill harmful bacteria in the water. This keeps you from getting sick from E. coli and other nasty germs, but it also strips out the natural oils that protect your hair from damage and daily wear. Since I don't want my hair to turn into hay, I've learned to coat my strands with hair product before I jump into the pool." – MIN-JA LEE
so i have some tips so that cant happen
1. put coconut oil in hair before and after swim
2.try Pantene pro-v bb cream
3. shower imidetely after swim shampoo and condition an leave condoner until next swim TRY ONES BELOW
