{Review} UP by Jawbone #Verizon

Image
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Verizon Wireless and UP by Jawbone. I was loaned a product sample, that facilitated my review.
I was very excited to partner with Verizon Wireless and UP by Jawbone, as I had heard of the product, but had never seen one up close! To say that I was nervous, was an understatement! I mean who wants to admit that they are unhealthy or need to make lifestyle changes? As a self admitted klutz who lacks zero athletic ability, I had serious butterflies, when I opened the UP by Jawbone! What would I need to do to see good numbers? Was I a couch potato, who really needed to make some major changes in my life? The UP by Jawbone and I were about to embark on a journey, and I was stepping up for the challenge! The UP by Jawbone, tracks your sleep activity, steps, calorie intake, and much more. The wrist sensor partners with the FREE mobile app, that you can download to your smart phone. The UP plugs into your smart phone via the headphone port, and with a si…

{Friday Sneak Peek}The Fifth Estate - New Featurette

Image
Triggering our age of high-stakes secrecy, explosive news leaks and the trafficking of classified information, WikiLeaks forever changed the game. Now, in a dramatic thriller based on real events, “The Fifth Estate” reveals the quest to expose the deceptions and corruptions of power that turned an Internet upstart into the 21st century’s most fiercely debated organization. The story begins as WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and his colleague Daniel Domscheit-Berg (Daniel Brühl) team up to become underground watchdogs of the privileged and powerful. On a shoestring, they create a platform that allows whistleblowers to anonymously leak covert data, shining a light on the dark recesses of government secrets and corporate crimes. Soon, they are breaking more hard news than the world’s most legendary media organizations combined. But when Assange and Berg gain access to the biggest trove of confidential intelligence documents in U.S. history, they battle each other …

"Enough Said" - Honor James Gandolfini - September 18th

Image
A divorced and single parent, Eva (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) spends her days enjoying work as a masseuse but dreading her daughter's impending departure for college. She meets Albert (James Gandolfini) - a sweet, funny and like-minded man also facing an empty nest. As their romance quickly blossoms, Eva befriends Marianne (Catherine Keener), her new massage client. Marianne is a beautiful poet who seems "almost perfect" except for one prominent quality: she rags on her ex-husband way too much. Suddenly, Eva finds herself doubting her own relationship with Albert as she learns the truth about Marianne's Ex. ENOUGH SAID is a sharp, insightful comedy that humorously explores the mess that often comes with getting involved again. In theaters September 18th.

Honor this amazing actor and father, by seeing his last film! James Gandolfini 1961 - 2013
