Cub Scouts & STEM

Have you heard of STEM? (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) I was so excited to join my son at an event for Cub Scouts and STEM; as he learned all about weather data, planets, lightening, lenses, and constellations! He loved that he earned two belt loops to further his Tiger Scout advancement, and I loved watching him soak everything up like a sponge as he learned about science in a very hands on way! 

Thank you to ATT&T, Fabick/CAT, Mad Science, and our local BSA council for putting on an event that 300+ Cub Scouts, leaders, and parents could all enjoy!

{Review} Barely There - Rewriting the Law of Gravity

This is a sponsored post. As a Barely There Blog Squad member, I have received product samples for sharing information about the company, and their products.

You've heard that all things that go up, must come down...thanks to Sir Issac Newton. But you should know that Barely There, is rewriting the Law of Gravity, and is saying "Gravity schmavity!" This Fall, who says that leaves are the only things that you need to think about? Not everything needs to be on the ground or fall down! 
Barely There is rewriting the law of gravity, one cup at a time! Introducing the new innovative Customized Lift system featuring 5 customized petals to give you the perfect amount of lift every time.

This short clip, shows all the great details of how Barely There is sharing the great news, and rewriting the Law of Gravity:
Fuller Coverage Customized Lift (Style #5776)
  • Fuller coverage cup and back
  • Innovative Cup Design
  • Vanishing cup edges
  • Seamless look under clothes
  • Available in White, Black, Soft Taupe, Warm Steel, and Lucky Leopard
  • Sizes: 34-36A, 34-38B, C, and D

As a busty gal, I have always been concerned about my bust line and my overall appearance. Over the years I can recall attempting to cover them up, crossing my arms over my chest, or wear clothes that were very unflattering; all in an attempt to hide or run from gravity! I grew up in a family of large chested women, and remember my aunts sitting around laughing about great aunt so-and-so needing a boulder holder. As the amazing women age in our family, gravity takes over and the "girls" are a lost cause. 

What if I told you that you only needed a little LIFT?! That it really is that simple, and that each cup size is catered to via the Barely There Customized Lift system! This innovative new way of lift, support, and level of comfort is found in the bras petals within the cup?! No matter your cup size, choice of color, or selection of underwire, your fear of gravity never has to rear its ugly head again! Will you join us in saying, "Gravity schmavity?" Rewrite the Law, be free to wear what you want, and love your curves!

Want to know more about Barely There? Seeking comfort and lift in your bra? Barely there would love to help you rewrite the law of gravity! Check out Facebook, Twitter #CustomizedLift, Instagram, and the Barely There website for the latest in trends and colors.

Breaking News: The Hundred-Foot Journey #DreamWorks


Production has begun in southwest France on “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” based on the best-selling novel by Richard C. Morais. Starring Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren, and directed by Oscar® nominee Lasse Hallström, the film will be released on August 8, 2014 in the U.S.

In “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family, led by Papa (Om Puri), settles in the quaint village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the south of France. Filled with charm, it is both picturesque and elegant – the ideal place to settle down and open an Indian restaurant, the Maison Mumbai. That is, until the chilly chef proprietress of Le Saule Pleureur, a Michelin starred, classical French restaurant run by Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren), gets wind of it. Her icy protests against the new Indian restaurant a hundred feet from her own escalate to all out war between the two establishments – until Hassan’s passion for French haute cuisine and for Mme. Mallory’s enchanting sous chef, Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon), combine with his mysteriously delicious talent to weave magic between their two cultures and imbue Saint-Antonin with the flavors of life that even Mme. Mallory cannot ignore. At first Mme. Mallory's culinary rival, she eventually recognizes Hassan's gift as a chef and takes him under her wing.

“The Hundred-Foot Journey” abounds with flavors that burst across the tongue. A stimulating triumph over exile, blossoming with passion and heart, with marjoram and madras, it is a portrayal of two worlds colliding and one boy’s drive to find the comfort of home, in every pot, wherever he may be.

“The Hundred-Foot Journey” is directed by acclaimed Academy Award® and Golden Globe® nominee Lasse Hallström from a script by Steven Knight and is based on the international best-selling novel of the same name by Richard C. Morais. The movie’s producers are Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey and Juliet Blake. The film’s executive producers are Caroline Hewitt and Carla Gardini.  Raphael Benoliel is co-producer.

The filmmakers of “The Hundred-Foot Journey” also include production designer David Gropman (“August: Osage County,” “Life Of Pi”), costume designer Pierre-Yves Gayraud (“Cloud Atlas,” “Albert Nobbs”) director of photography Linus Sandgren (“American Hustle,” “Promised Land”) and editor Andrew Mondshein (“Safe Haven,” “The Odd Life of Timothy Green”).

DreamWorks Studios is producing, with Participant Media co-financing. Mister Smith Entertainment is handling foreign sales to Europe, Africa and the Middle East, DreamWorks’ partner Reliance will distribute in India, with Disney handling the remaining international territories. Disney will distribute the film theatrically in the U.S.
