Disney on Ice "Let's Celebrate!"

Our holiday festivities are off with a bang with Disney On Ice "Let's Celebrate!" My kids LOVED seeing their favorite characters such as Ariel, Jasmin and Lilo ice-skating to their favorite tunes. The show is filled with so many great numbers but the most memorable was probably the surfer surrounded by a fire ring during the luau party.

And after the show, you can continue your ice-skating adventures at the rink across the Staples Center. Get your tickets now at!

Holiday Deals at the Children's Place!

The holiday shopping frenzy is here and there's no better way to save time AND money than by heading over to The Children's Place!

My daughter was in pastel heaven when I brought home a great floral top paired up with a faux fur vest and a stylish gold skirt. They had so many great holiday options that it took forever to finally decide on this adorable pink and red formal dress, which she will proudly wear to take pictures with Santa.

I saved so much time and crossed off SO many items from my shopping list by picking up an Olaf backpack for my son, cute warm and fuzzy panda slippers for my niece, an awesome Christmas morning onesie for my daughter and a few fun critter hats for our friends.

I love bright colors because it helps me spot my little Tasmanian devil quickly in a crowd so you can imagine my excitement and appreciation when I found this orange and grey winter jacket on sale for forty percent off. They also had fleece pullovers for an unbelievable price of $5!!! I think my BEST find was this blue and orange sweatshirt for only $4 on the clearance rack. I KNOW, right?! I could hardly believe it myself.

Disney's Maleficent!

Maleficent is a unique version of the old Disney tale "Sleeping Beauty". Angelina Jolie stars as the mysterious fairy, who immediately invites you into her world with her striking beauty and haunting eyes. It gives the viewer the back story as to "why" the spell was cast upon sweet Aurora in the first place.

As the story untangles, it lures you in with it's dark undertones and enlightening themes. You are enraptured by Maleficent from the start of the film, and fall in love with
her mystic until the very end, as it is true—all stories are not all what they seem.

Fans of Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt will be delighted to see a cameo of their youngest daughter, Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, who plays the young, Princess Aurora as a toddler; in the few minutes of her presence, she graces the screen with her bright smile, sunny disposition and innocence. Elle Fanning does an impressive job of capturing the essence of teen Aurora, who stands out as whimsical, curious and full of life.

Parental guidance is suggested due to some minor haunting imagery. Overall, Maleficent is recommend for families who are ready to be taken on a thrilling magical journey that will strike a chord in your heart, ensuring that “true love” is possible.

Maleficent opens nationwide TODAY!

Spring savings at the Children's Place!


I love shopping for my kids at The Children's Place! They currently have their beautiful Easter dresses on sale and their Spring collection at an additional 50% off.  Although they had several cute options,  I couldn't resist this purple floral number for my daughter and only wish it came in adult sizes

My son, on the other hand, has taken a liking to sunglasses and hats! (Even though he will only leave them on for 2 min. max). There are so many stylish options, I'm not surprised that he chose this black rhinestone pair since they are pretty snazzy.

Summer is right around the corner and Children's Place has bright and colorful options in swimwear so I'll definitely come back for this orange ensemble so I can keep track of my little guy on the shore.

I think my favorite section to browse was the preppy casuals. I love the fact that you can mix and match so many pieces and end up with different options whether it be dressy or everyday wear.

Here is my final shopping tally: I was able to get a beautiful Easter dress, 3 pairs of 2 piece cotton winter pajamas, 2 adorable toddler spring dresses and 8 pairs of earrings for myself ALL for under $50!!! I couldn't believe it but being part of their My Place rewards program REALLY pays off. If you haven't joined, do it NOW and start saving!

Disclaimer: I was not paid for this post. I was provided a $100 gift card to preview the Children's Place Spring collection and the views expressed are my personal honest opinion.
