the Other Woman is coming to DVD on 7/29 + DIY Viewing Party Tips


the Other Woman is a fabulously funny movie starring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, and Kate Upton... and it's coming to DVD on July 29th!


About the movie:

When Carly (Cameron Diaz) discovers her boyfriend is married she decides to do the right thing, leave him alone. But a chance meeting with his wife, Kate (Leslie Mann) changes everything. As it turns our Carly + Kate have a lot in common... they've both been duped by the same dude! The two not-so-instantly become BFF's. As if things couldn't get any worse, Carly and Kate discover that he's having another affair, with Amber (Kate Upton) a super hot young hottie. The three women team up to get revenge on Mr. Casanova!




The Other Woman is a must own! I saw the movie while it was in theaters with my best girls and we all LOVED it! It was perfectly cast... these ladies are funny and totally relatable. 

The real story is the unlikely sisterhood that is formed out of a seemingly heartbreaking situation. Friendship is one of the most rewarding and magical parts of being human, and I think that this is especially true for women (yes, I am biased because I happen to be one). It's always nice to watch movies that celebrate that kind of bond.

Have a DIY Viewing Party!


Now that we've established that you will be going out to pick up a copy of the Other Woman DVD, you need to invite some of your best chicks over to watch it with you! 

You can serve up a few appetizers like:

B.F.F. Bruschetta
Slimmed Down Buffalo Chicken Dip
Ladies Choice Brownies

And of course your have to have a signature drink, like The Carly or The Summer Fling, so you can play a few games:


The Other Woman is currently available on Digital HD now and on will be available on Blu-Ray or DVD on July 29th.

How to Prepare for Your First Yoga Class

Maybe you’ve finally decided to enter the realm of Yoga. Your sessions will help you to develop a sense of balance between your mind, body and spirit. If you are anxiously anticipating your first yoga class, then you will want to properly prepare yourself so that you can maximize the health benefits. The following are some tips on getting yourself ready for your first ever practice.

Hydrate 
You will need to properly hydrate yourself so that you will have extra liquids when you engage in Yoga stretching and movement the first time. Make sure you drink several glasses of water or Gatorade at least two hours before your session. Your increased fluid intake will help you to prevent dehydration when you engage in increased activities. 
Take a Hot Bath (Before or After!)
Yoga is an activity that essentially promotes relaxation. You can help bring forth your relaxed state by taking a hot bath before your session. A hot bath with eucalyptus or lavender oils will release any tension that you have in the body. It will also loosen your muscles and promote flexibility. 
Clear Your Mind
Another way that you can prepare yourself for your first yoga session is by clearing your mind of stressful thoughts ahead of time. You can do this by practicing meditation before class. To meditate properly, you will need to find a quiet area in your home where you can steer your thought process in a positive direction. You may also choose to find a comfortable spot outside. You will want to take long, slow, deep breaths while focusing on the rise and fall of your lungs. Tune in to the movement and focus your thoughts on your upcoming yoga class.
Dress Comfortably
You will want to wear appropriate clothing when you head to your first yoga session. Spandex is a good choice of material because it enables flexibility. Lululemon founder Chip Wilson swears by his company’s yoga attire. The clothing is meant to allow for optimal movement and relaxation. Most of the time, yoga is practiced with bare feet so shoes are not necessary. Chip Wilson advises individuals of all ages and fitness levels to try yoga and reap the health benefits of the activity.

The last thing you need to do to prepare yourself for your first yoga lesson is to bring a positive attitude to class. You must leave behind all of the troubles and struggles of the day and allow positive energy to flow through your body as you begin the flowing movements.

Taxi Magic App review

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Taxi Magic. I received a promotional code to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
I'm writing this post from a local coffee shop here in my home town. I arrived to the shop nearly 20 minutes ago... delivered safe and sound by the South Bay Yellow Cab company. Why does this matter to you? Well I wanted to share how I came to arrive here... it was like magic - Taxi Magic!

Taxi Magic is an app that partners with local cab fleets. Here in Los Angeles (LA) Taxi Magic provides instant access to over 1,500 LA cabs!

I live on the outskirts of Los Angeles, and if you're familiar with the area you know that everything is pretty spread out here. The roads are always jam-packed with commuters and the transportation systems are just catching up with the 21st century (our Metro-rail system became operational less than 25 years ago). And don't let me get started with the parking problems in most areas! Needless to say, driving is among my least favorite things to do.

Over the years, I have only taken a taxi cab a few times. I often forget that taxi cabs even run here! Mostly because driving is so natural for native Angelino's like myself. But the convenience of taxi rides is pretty excellent... and they're not just for rides to and from the airport either. 

Taxi Magic is the wave of the future, you can schedule a cab ride without Googling a cab company or making a phone call.  You can request a cab for now or schedule one for later.. in a five easy steps:
  1. Make a choice "I'm ready to go" or "Pick me up later."
  2. Input your pick-up location.
  3. Enter destination (if you know it)
  4. Be ready to go.
  5. Get in the cab when the car arrives.
The app charts the course the entire way. Paying for your Taxi Magic ride is simple too. Once you arrive at your destination you click the pay now button (you must have a credit card on file), enter the fare amount (you can include the tip in the final fare amount, which will also include a documentation fee), and bid farewell to the driver.

 It's really that simple! 

My Taxi Magic experience was truly exceptional! The driver was professional + polite. The app was easy to use and worked seamlessly. No muss... no fuss. If you have a smart phone and need to call a cab... I highly recommend you use Taxi Magic. 

Use the MomMagic14 code to get $15.00 off your first ride.

Taxi Magic is available in over 60 US cities, and in select cities in Canada, the UK, and Mexico. Download the app for free on iTunes or Google Play or book online at TaxiMagic.com
