II am absolutely thrilled to introduce you to 3DLIGHTFX 3D Deco Lights. They are the perfect gift this holiday season for anyone!  They have a full range of comic book, super hero, Disney Princess, sports and car lights that look as though they are popping right out of the wall!

They are battery operated and cool to the touch so you can place them any where in the room. Your kids will love having these in their rooms and they’re also the perfect additions to a den, family room, man cave or office! They’re also unusual and can be found at Target: http://bit.ly/TargetUSFamily!

Here are some pictures of these super-cool lights:





I look forward to getting one of these for my son (shh, no one tell him!) and will write up a post with pictures when I receive it!

Build-A-Bear Workshop® is fun for all!


I recently had the chance to visit Build-A-Bear Workshop®  thanks to Smiley360, who offered a gift card to promote the new Superhero, My Little Pony® and Disney® Princess Palace Pet characters that are available both in stores, as well as online here.

I brought my four year old daughter for the first time to create her own Build-A-Bear and she is in love! We were greeted warmly by a helpful woman named Aimee at the Altamonte Mall location in Altamonte Springs, FL/ Aimee was extremely helpful in helping Olivia choose her ideal new “friend” and helping to choose any add-on’s such as voice and scent! After she gave a good luck kiss to the little red satin heart that goes inside her new fluffy friend, she got to help press the pedal to pump filling inside. She then got to “bathe” her purple colored “My Little Pony” and choose any accessories. (She chose a microphone but will be returning soon for a tiara)

Here are some pictures showing the fun we had:

What’s your #DisneySide

Back in December of 2013, I hear about an opportunity to host a Disney Side party and just knew that I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to apply and possibly be chosen to host, which entailed choosing a party date and setting up fun activities for friends! When I received the acceptance email in January I was absolutely thrilled and the anticipation grew even more after I joined a Facebook group for the hosts and saw that the hosts were receiving boxes with not just party supplies, but luggage as well from one of the sponsors American Tourister!

As a long-time Disney fan and former cast member I will always love Disney, from the old Mickey Mouse cartoons to the movies and theme parks. One of the reasons I love living in Central Florida is that I am close enough to visit Walt Disney World, even if it’s just for a day here and there! My children have all been bitten by the “Disney-bug” and are huge fans like their Mom.

I had just as much fun planning the party as I did hosting it! Here are some pictures of the goodies and fun we had!

Cool Mickey Mouse cookie cutters

T-Shirts and Markers to decorate from Hanes

Another sponsor of the parties: Hanes® came through in a great way by sending t-shirts and fabric markers! What a wonderful activity as well as party favor! Did you know that Hanes® even has a design-your-own shirt store at Downtown Disney?

The box was filled with goodies!

My fabulous American Tourister hostess gift


If I even have the chance to host another party for Disney I will do so in a heartbeat! If you’re interested in hosting for 2015, check back at http://www.disneysidecelebrations.com/!
