I smell another huge hit in the midst since Disney Animation Studios revealed plans for Moana. What's Moana, you ask? A CG-animated comedy-adventure about a spirited teenager on an impossible mission to fulfill her ancestors' quest. In theaters in late 2016, the film is directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker ("The Little Mermaid," "The Princess and the Frog," "Aladdin”).

Legacy Recordings has announced, Henry Mancini's The Classic Soundtrack Collection is scheduled to release on Monday, November 17th. Just in time for Christmas! I received an early copy for review purposes. While I am not the music connoisseur in my household, my husband certainly is. He has an eclectic taste in music and is a drummer in a local (instrumental) surf rock band. I found it only fitting to have him listen to the Soundtrack and share his thoughts on it! Here it is:

Disclosure: I was not financialy compensated for this post. I am part of the Nutrisystem Blogging Program where I receive free product and share my experiences with the program. My opinions are 100% my own. Disclosure Policy Here.
Remember my awesome news a few weeks ago? I lost 5 pounds thanks to The Fast Five on Nutrisystem. Well, the real test has begun! Sure, I always do great starting out on a weight loss program and then it starts to plummet. Especially when it is that "time of the month." You girls can understand, during that time I become increasingly hungry and crave chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate! And this month has been extra tough with all the Halloween candy lying around!
My husband knows the way to my heart is with chocolate, cake and pretty much anything sweet. The owner of Winston, in Disneys new short film Feast, seems to have the same philosophy. Feast is a new short film by first time director Patrick Osborn and will play right before Big Hero 6 which opens November 7th. Pretty awesome, right? I have already been looking forward to Big Hero 6 and here is another reason to get super pumped about it!

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for Jif To Go Dippers. I received a sample to facilitate my review and a thank you item for participating.
When it comes to snacks, one of my top priorities in a snack preference is the health factor. I want a snack that will not only satisfy the "yummy tooth" but also provide some nutrition. These specifications can become a slippery slope when it comes to snacks, especially when you are looking for a quick, On-The-Go snack. Jif has come to save the day with its To-Go Dippers!
