March 9, 2018 – A WRINKLE IN TIME (Walt Disney Studios)

From visionary director Ava DuVernay comes Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time,” an epic adventure based on Madeleine L’Engle’s timeless classic which takes audiences across dimensions of time and space,  examining the nature of darkness versus light and, ultimately, the triumph of love. Through one girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light.

Meg Murry is a typical middle school student struggling with issues of self-worth who just wants to fit in. The daughter of two world-renowned physicists, she is intelligent and uniquely gifted, as is Meg’s younger brother, Charles Wallace, but she has yet to realize it for herself. Complicating matters is the mysterious disappearance of Mr. Murry, which has left Meg devastated and her mother broken-hearted. Charles Wallace introduces Meg and her fellow classmate Calvin to three celestial beings (Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit and Mrs. Who) who have journeyed to Earth to help search for their father, and together they embark on their formidable quest. Travelling via a wrinkling of time and space known as tessering, they are transported to worlds beyond their imagination where they must confront a powerful evil force. To make it back home to Earth, Meg must face the darkness within herself in order to harness the strength necessary to defeat the darkness rapidly enveloping the Universe.

Directed by Oscar® nominee Ava DuVernay from a screenplay by Oscar winner Jennifer Lee based upon the beloved novel by Madeleine L’Engle, “A Wrinkle in Time” stars: two-time Academy Award® nominee 
Oprah Winfrey as Mrs. Which, Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon as Mrs. Whatsit, Emmy® nominee Mindy Kaling as Mrs. Who, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Mrs. Murry, Michael Pe┼ła as Red and introducing Storm Reid as Meg Murry, with two-time Emmy winner Zach Galifianakis as The Happy Medium and Emmy nominee Chris Pine as Mr. Murry.

Produced by Jim Whitaker and Catherine Hand with Doug Merrifield and Adam Borba serving as executive producers, the film also boasts an impressive creative team featuring some of the most talented and skilled craft persons working today, including: Tobias Schliessler, ASC as director of photography, Naomi Shohan as production designer, Oscar®-nominee Spencer Averick as film editor, two-time Academy Award®-nominee Paco Delgado as costume designer with music by Ramin Djawadi.

“A Wrinkle in Time” opens nationwide on March 9, 2018.

Keep your Feet Warm with Heat Holders!

I received a sample from Heat Holders for the sole purpose of this review
Keep your Feet Warm with Heat Holders!
I have worked with Heat Holders in the past (4 years ago already?!?!?), and I still have my pair and love love love them still to this day. But knowing this winter was going to be particularly bad and cold I contacted them again and they were generous enough to send 3 new pairs of their famous socks!

Heat Holders are incredibly soft, warm and thick. And they are perfect for the brutal climates or even if your feet always get cold. 

This last week we went through a deep freeze (as I'm sure 98% of the country did) and we had windchills as low as -25. Heat Holders SAVED my feet and they came in handy when I was out shoveling snow as well.

Naturally with Dr. Jacobs Naturals

On a quest to be healthier and find healthier alternatives for body products, I discovered Castile soap and I honestly fell completely in love. I use it on my hair, face and body. It is a 3-in-1 product and saves me space in the shower. 

I recently discovered Dr. Jacobs Naturals and their castile and bar soap and I couldn't be happier. Their scents are AMAZING!!

I received the Castile Liquid in Almond Honey, Peppermint, Shea Butter and their new Charcoal.
And I received their bar soaps in  Coco Loco Lemonade, Citrus Crush Cocktail and Minty Cucumber Mojito.
