Sofia The First: The Floating Palace Out on DVD!

Sofia_The_First_The_Floating_Palace_DVD_Beauty_Shot

 

Who doesn’t love Sofia? The village girl, turned princess (overnight).

We love her and I’m not gonna lie, I find myself singing the intro song every time it comes on TV, but shhh don’t tell my daughter. She says that I’m not allowed to sing any of the songs from her shows.

Pffff. Yeah Right. 

Now, Sofia’s got a new DVD out!

About This DVD:

“Do YOU believe in mermaids? You will – when you set sail on a magical full-length adventure under the sea with Sofia the First! After Sofia helps a young mermaid named Oona, Sofia’s amulet grants her the power to transform into a mermaid and visit her new friend’s secret underwater kingdom. But when Cedric (disguised as a sea monster) plots to steal Oona’s enchanted Mermaid Comb, danger surfaces for both worlds. With a little help from special guest, Princess Ariel, Sofia embarks on an adventure to rescue Oona. Overflowing with oceans of song-filled fun – plus three more exciting episodes – Sofia the First: The Floating Palace proves that when families and friends work together, they can weather any storm and save the day!”

Never seen Sofia The First? What are you waiting for?  Check out a sneak peek below:

 

Pick up your copy today! This DVD includes a Special Appearance by Princess Ariel (from The Little Mermaid), Three Bonus Episodes, Plus FREE Exclusive Friendship Bracelets (which my daughter promptly RIPPED out of the packaging upon receipt).

Dial Vitamin Boost Body Wash

new-dial-vitamin-boost-290x1

 

**Disclosure: I received a complimentary bottle of Dial’s Vitamin Infused body wash for the purposes of this review. No other compensation was given.** 

I am a huge fan of Dial’s Coconut Water Body Wash, so I was excited to try their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash.

You don’t need to use a lot to get a good lather out of this body wash. What I enjoy the most about it is how smooth my skin feels after it’s washed off. I have to be honest, I’m not madly in love with the scent- I prefer the smell of the Coconut Water Body Wash to this.

The Priority List by David Menasche {Review}

The Priority List

** Legal Stuff: I was provided a copy of The Priority List from Simon & Schuster to read and review here. **

I think we all, at some point in our lives, stop and think about the things that are most important to us.

For David Menasche, The Priority List was something that his AP English students did for him each year. When faced with brain cancer, though, Menasche (as he is affectionately called)  creates his own Priority List.

Deciding to forgo further treatment for his deadly brain cancer, Menasche, almost completely blind and crippled decides to take to the road- alone. He seeks out his former high school students to see if in his life’s work, teaching, he has truly made a difference on others.

I enjoyed reading about his family and how he was raised, saddened by the relationship with his wife, and touched by the stories his students shared about him. As a teacher myself, knowing that I’ve had an impact on even one student is fulfilling. Knowing that he had an impact on such a large body of students? Is something that he will take with him until his last breath.

If nothing else, this book serves as a reminder to live each day. To appreciate each day. And to not wait until you receive a death sentence to start doing these things.

It’s definitely worth checking out.
