The Most Versatile Swimwear For the Mommy With Some Tummy

Summer is almost here. Let's be honest. Who among you get a little stressed out about the mere thought of wearing a swimsuit? I'm sure a majority of you do. Me? - It scares me!  

Let's be real. When pregnancy occurs, it does a number on our once pristine bodies and reshapes it into a work of art that uncannily resembles our favorite bakery items! Most famous of them all? The Muffin top! If you don't have them, lucky you! But for most of us, not so much.  And worst part of it? "Traditional" swimsuits out there, they're no help at all. Que horror!

Let's be brutally honest. These regular swimsuits, they do nothing but highlight our mommy-tummy. Others, they make us look like burritos! You've seen moms who fall victim to these curse! You cringe and you die a little inside because you're also a mom and you totally can relate. I figured there must be some way around these nightmare. Well, finally, there is (especially for me anyway). Check my curated board - Ultimate Beach Mom Beach Babe Swimwear Must-have!

Contributor Review: Alice Through the Looking Glass Fell Down The Rabbit Hole A Little Too Far

Editors Note: Alice Through The Looking Glass officially opens on Friday, May 27. We received a media invite to preview the movie and our contributor and movie buff Nigel had the opportunity to see it. See what he have to say about the movie.

High Expectations. Fair in Comparison.
Seeing Tim Burton's work on Alice in Wonderland as a director, one can easily see the difference in this sequel; Alice Through the Looking Glass, which this time he co-produced. Being aware of this carries certain expectations, one of which is that the vision transported from Tim's mind to the screen will be a visual feast for us mere mortals that can no longer believe in as many as six impossible things before breakfast, and Alice Through The Looking Glass, does not disappoint in that regard.

Unfortunately, it seems that Burton set the bar so darn high with Alice in Wonderland, that even he, and Alice Through the Looking Glass director, James Bobin, have been unable to deliver the same impact with this second offering in the timeless works of Lewis Carroll.

Getting Refreshed with Santa Cruz Organic® Agua Fresca Beverages From #MomsMeet and #KeepOnCruzin (Giveaway)

My house is a house that loves lemonade. But not just any lemonade. We love our own homemade, organic, freshly-squeezed lemonade that we make a lot of when the weather gets hot. With Summer just around the corner, the thought of a refreshing frozen lemonade is not that far off from our minds. But let's face it, there are times when we don't have the time to make a good-tasting homemade lemonade. So, once in a while, we rely on store-bought versions to quench our cravings.

Now you should know that we are very particular about what product we buy. My family is a huge consumer of organic products and we are ingredients-nazi as well. If we can't pronounce an ingredient or there are just way too many it's ridiculous, that product immediately goes straight back to the store shelf. Thankfully, Santa Cruz organic lemonade and Agua Fresca Pomegranate is an organic product. So, when Green Moms Meet asked me to try Santa Cruz Organic® Agua Fresca products, I said yes, right away.

Why DisneySMMC is More Meaningful to Me and My Family this Time Around

Inside Yacht and Beach Club Convention Center 

The Disney Social Media Moms Conference is perhaps the most coveted conference available to bloggers out there. It is by-invite only and limited, making the conference a very exclusive event. To be invited is almost an achievement all on its own. And rightly so. It's an invite by Disney itself afterall. None can top that!

Alice Through The Looking Glass: A Twisted Reality

I have seen trailers of Alice Through the Looking Glass a few times and heard all the buzz, but nothing prepared me for how awesome it was to actually watch the entire movie on the big screen and on 3D - waaaayyy before it officially opens in theaters! Nothing also prepared me for the unexpected surprise that this movie is entirely a story all on its own and only inspired by the original story based on the book by Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass. However, this version will surely make you mad - mad with delight!

Disney World's New Disney Springs: An Exclusive look Behind the Wall

Downtown Disney No more...
If you frequent Disneyworld or is from Orlando, you probably noticed or heard that Downtown Disney is no longer referred to as such. Rather, it is now aptly called, "Disney Springs". And it's not just the name that changed. Instead, there is a whole redesign and re-imagined shopping overhaul to the town center that will make you feel like you're walking through Florida's historical timeline while enjoying a top of the line shopping experience.

The World Behind The Wall
I was one of the privileged few - thanks to DisneySMMC (Disney Social Media Moms Conference) - to not only step inside the enclosure hiding the new Town Center and final expansion of the new Disney Springs shopping hub but also got a private tour to walk around the site and had a sneak peek on what's in store for the shoppers once it opens. All I'll say is that Shopaholics will surely have the time of their lives once this finally opens to the public!

Disney Pixar's Finding Dory: Her Forgotten Past Finally Revealed

We all know Nemo of course and when we think of this famous clown fish's movie, that Blue Tang, Dory, isn't that far away from our minds, is it? Wait...

Dory who? 
That's right. Dory in a nutshell. The Blue Tang with its relentless STML (Short Term Memory Loss) disability. Nemo's reliably unreliable forgetful friend. However, she possesses a big heart and big enough to make up for her usually erratic misgivings. A positive quality of hers that overcame her sometimes annoying flaw. Her wackiness is so cute and so impressionably adorable that Dory swam into our hearts in full speed and stayed there.
