Fashion Goals – Century 21

  I have been overweight all my life. I have tired just about everything to lose weight - Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, NutriSystem, Optifast, hypnosis, cabbage soup, pills, bing/purging, staving myself, exercising like a crazy person... nothing worked. I'd lose weight but the moment I stopped I'd gain the weight back - and more. I even had … [More...]

  If you are a long time reader of She Scribes, you know that we have a mini-zoo at home. We have five cats and a Goldfish.

I still say "good bye" to him every day when I leave for work from force of … [More...]

  Here in the Northeast we are expecting a blizzard tomorrow (March 14, 2017). Needless to say none of us are planning on leaving our home tomorrow.

I just assume curl up on my couch with a snugly … [More...]

Movie Review: Train to Busan – an actual GREAT horror movie

  If you read my blog on a regular basis you know that I enjoy horror movies. I am a big fan of the genre. I was into zombies long before most people jumped on the zombie "bandwagon," thanks to shows like The Walking Dead. I've found zombie movies entertaining since the original Dawn of the Dead (1978). As a child I enjoyed Dracula and other … [More...]

Writing a Good Book Review: Tips and Tricks

  Book reviews, when well-written, offer a critical perspective applicable to the assigned text. These reviews will make an argument either for, or against, the topic at hand. They will provide readers with reasons to agree with, or dispute, the author’s position. Most importantly though, a book review is not simply a summary, but a commentary on … [More...]

“Experience” Disney’s Moana at a Dolby Cinema at AMC Theater

  The movie going experience has changed A LOT since I was a young girl. Some things have stayed the same - like popcorn and candy from the concession stand. But seeing the movie it's self has changed so much over the years, including how movies are made. It's common knowledge that movies made these days are high-tech, made with an arsenal of … [More...]

Movie Review: Moonlight

  Every year when I find out what film are nominated for an Academy Award, I do my best to try and see at least most of them. I figured if they are up for such a prestigious award, the films must be really good. This year I only had the opportunity to see two of the films nominated for Best Picture - Hell or High Water and Manchester by the … [More...]

Jetsons & WWE: Robo-Wrestlemania

  Are you a fan of the futuristic family, the Jetsons? The Jetsons were one of my favorite Saturday morning cartoons to watch when I was growing up. I always wanted to live in their world. It's so cool to think about having your own spaceship to drive you where ever you wanted to go - even if it was another planet. I'm not a fan of WWE (World … [More...]

The Little Red Wagon…

Think back to when you were a little child. Was there a toy that was very special to you? For me it was my Fisher Price Little People (back when they were made out of wood) and my stuffed animals. In fact I still have the first two stuffed animals I was ever given - Pal and Bridget. Pal is in bad condition. In fact, he doesn't even have a piece of hair left … [More...]
