Kendra Wilkinson Is Having A Girl

Disney's "Frozen" - Los Angeles Premiere

For Reality TV star Kendra Wilkinson the second time does indeed seem to be the charm: She’s having a girl! For a lot of parents one of the biggest wishes of their second pregnancy is to have a different sex than that of the first baby. I’m being general here, but mommy tends to usually want the little girl and daddy tends to usually think of playing with big trucks and Ninja Turtles. Kendra Wilkinson and hubby Hank Baskett will definitely have a lot to be cheerful for this holiday season.

The Reality TV star and former playboy model first confirmed her pregnant state back in October with a Twitpic where she holds out her pregnancy test capsule saying: Pregnant. At that time she was rumored to be around 8 weeks into her pregnancy, which should mean that she now should be anywhere from around 13 weeks to 14 weeks – almost halfway there Kendra!… [read more]

Past relationships can, and most definitely do, affect one’s future course of action. In this case, Katy Perry still blames her marriage fail – though it seemed doomed from the start – to comedian and, let’s be honest, playboy Russell Brand for her feelings of anxiety when thinking about the possibility of pregnancy. Although she says she’s verry happy with current partner John Mayer, she still feels a ways off from making that huge step that seems to give certain celebrities all kinds of nightmares – after all, they DO have to sacrifice their public image for some time right?… [read more]

Happy Thanksgiving! Disney’s Frozen Hit Theatres Today! #MovieReview

Happy Thanksgiving From Frozen

In case you haven’t heard, Disney‘s highly anticipated animated film, Frozen hits theatres today! Earlier, this month I got the chance to attend a sneak peak of the movie and I’m happy to report Disney animators have done it again. Frozen is sure to be an instant classic with it’s strong soundtrack and compelling story.

Music is an important component to any animated film. What parent doesn’t know the words to their favorite songs from classic Disney movies?  The songwriters of Frozen were deeply aware of this and created a soundtrack that will add a couple of new hits to the Disney canon. Written and composed by theTony Award-winning husband-and-wife songwriting duo, Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-LopezFrozen delivers with the power-ballad Let it Go. The song is performed in the movie by Elsa (Idina Menzel), when she leaves the kingdom of Arendelle and creates her own ice palace.… [read more]

Eye-Fi mobi: Photography Meets Social Media On The Go #HolidayGiftGuide

Eye-Fi mobi

As an amateur photographer – and I mean REALLY amateur – I take lots of pictures of my daughter Ava. I’m sure it’s a favorite past-time of many parents, so I include you as well when I say amateur(even though you probably are much more skilled than I). As a blogger, I post pictures of my daughter to my social media accounts quite frequently but I usually post those not-so-optimal smart phone, or tablet pics. The reason: it takes much longer to get that good picture off of my Nikon DSLr camera whereas posting a picture from my phone is a one-click (two at most) affair. Before getting acquainted with the Eye-fi mobi 8GB SDHC, I had one of those moments where I thought to myself: ” Wouldn’t it be cool to have a wi-fi SD card so that I could instantaneously transfer my high-quality photos from my Nikon and publish them directly on my social media through my smart phone?!” And like anything else we think of these days, someone always seems to beat us to the punch. It’s a good thing they did because the Eye-fi mobi is an indispensable tool for someone like me.… [read more]
