This time last year I was introduced to a brilliant, new, Amazon series. The Other F Word is a unique series in its own right but is also a part of a growing movement of film, television and digital content targeting female friendships and women who are no longer sporting the age of 20 or […]
Wishenpoof, the newest Amazon Original Kids Series, IMG_7601will be available for Amazon Prime members beginning on August 14th, One of the perks of being a blogger is the chance to preview new TV shows, and my boys (ages 4 and 7) binge-watched the entire 13 episode run of Wishenproof during a recent vacation.
Typically filmed in LA, the hosts of The Talk made a special trip this last week to film a couple shows in NYC and grace the city streets with their larger-than-life totally fun personalities. I was invited to go Tuesday for the filming of the Friday show but was sad to miss what I hear […]

Octonauts, an animated TV series by Disney, is adorably perfect for my boys, who will turn two and five this April. My oldest loves swimming and visiting the beach, so he is very interested in the ocean and life under the sea.

Tim Burton is well known for being wildly creative and a little offbeat. From Edward Scissorhands to Alice in Wonderland, Burton does a great job of drawing you into a story, resounding with characters and entertaining all […]
I wrote before about how much my boys love Peppa Pig on NIck Jr. Peppa Pig is a lovable, cheeky little pig from the UK, and the charming cartoon follows her family life and daily activities.

Since I’m a fan of many quirky cartoons (Simpsons, Futurama, Family Guy, Archer and more), it looked like something that would appeal to my odd sense of humor.
