The Oscars, Your PJs, Wine + Popcorn Pairings (+ Hoping Leonardo DiCaprio Wins!)

With the 2016 Oscars around the corner, the question on everyone’s mind is whether or not (my love) Leonardo DiCaprio will finally win a tiny gold man!

Okay, well maybe not everyone, but, it’s certainly on my mind.

So, you know I’ll be sitting at home just waiting… and waiting, and mentally preparing my angry Facebook status rant/happy Facebook status rant-dependent on outcome.

But whether you plan to go to a viewing party or hang out at home, our friends at SkinnyGirl served up a few fab wine and popcorn (yes, you read right) pairings for Hollywood’s biggest night! [Read more…]

Roots And Wings: Miranda Lambert Partners With Ram Trucks, Easton Corbin Extends Contract

Continuing a partnership that started in late 2014, Miranda Lambert stars in Ram Truck’s latest commercial with her song “Roots and Wings.”

Lambert wrote the song exclusively for Ram’s campaign and Chrysler Group has stated that both the country singer and track were chosen to take the brand beyond their core audience, while still hitting home.

“This campaign is actually designed to broaden the appeal of both Ram and Miranda, beyond our core audiences as we connect with our respective fans in new, meaningful ways,” said Olivier Francois, Chrysler Group’s chief marketing officer.

“In simple terms, the target for our ‘Roots and Wings’ campaign is not a single target. Men, women, all ages, and sure, we hope the millions of die-hard fans Miranda has will like it too.”

An Interview with Tanc Sade

Last time we chatted with Tanc Sade, nearly two years ago, he was fresh of off Gilmore Girls, in the midst of producing with his film company, Five Island Films and seeking his next big adventure on the Southern California horizon.

Tanc spared some time for me and we caught up on everything from his acting career, producing and the love of his life, diving. [Read more…]

An Evening With Snow White and The Huntsman, NBC Universal and [yellow tail]

We seriously heart the folks at NBC Universal and [yellow tail]. They really know how to throw intimate, fun, exceptionally well-catered and put together events.

Whenever we step into a NBC Universal and [yellow tail] production it is always feels like we’ve stepped into another world.

Thereby, the NBC Universal and [yellow tail] blu-ray/DVD launch of “Snow White and The Huntsman” was nothing short of an ‘outstanding’ that even Dolores Umbridge couldn’t argue with it.

Minerva McGonagall would be proud.

Ignore our sleepless, New York Fashion Week, extremely tired face… rather pay attention to our pretty dress, red lips and cutsey wedges! *wheeee* Go us! 🙂

Centered around the theme of “Good and Evil” (we felt very Florence + The Machine “Shake it Out” music video-esque), the night was full of delicious [Read more…]

The Rekall of Total Recall

I live in Gotham City and we have strange things that happen here.

No, really.

We do.

So about a month ago when I started seeing these strange adverts for something called ‘Rekall’ with their whole “Tell us your fantasy. We’ll make it real” slogan, I was kind of confused.

I imagined it had to be some gimmick by Madame Tussauds or a weird strip club advertising some type of mind-blowing (no pun intended) fantasies.

Heck, for all I knew, it was some odd country club trying to be a combination of Nectar Island meets A Small World in scene of augmented reality on Innovations-crack a la Disney Orlando. [Read more…]

Hunger Games Mixology: DISTRICT 7,8,9,10,11 and 12 Cocktails

By: Ashley Bryce, Liana Cole and Sasha Muradali

Each year the Hunger Games are held inside the Capitol, in the county of Panem.

Panem rose out of the rubble that once was North America and had thirteen districts that surround it, each having a unique purpose. Tired of servitude, the thirteen districts of Panem rebelled against the Capitol and the nation turned into a battle ground.

In the end, the Capitol held down the resistance and District 13, known of its nuclear power, was destroyed in a disaster.

The twelve remaining districts signed the Treaty of Treason and the Hunger Games were born as a punishment for the costly rebellion.

Each year the districts have to sacrifice one girl and one boy, known as tributes, to the games. These tributes engage in a battle to the death with
one survivor.

The victor who goes back to his or her district with fame and fortune.

In recognition of these yearly games, we present drinks for the remaining 6 districts of Panem.

Happy

Hunger Games!
