New Movie Alert, I’ve been seeing a few trailers circulating on Facebook and couldn’t help but be intrigued.  I was a bit fascinated with this new sci-fi and did a little research. The movie is based on acclaimed best-selling Southern Reach by Jeff VanderMeer’s 2014 award-winning trilogy of novels, starting with Annihilation.

ANN_Dom_Online_Unrated_Vertical_Cast_2018Synopsis
Lena, a biologist, and former soldier joins a mission to uncover what happened to her husband inside Area X – a sinister and mysterious phenomenon that is expanding across the American coastline. Once inside, the expedition discovers a world of mutated landscape and creatures, as dangerous as it is beautiful, that threatens both their lives and their sanity.
From visionary writer and director Alex Garland (Ex Machina, 28 Days Later) and based on the acclaimed best-selling Southern Reach Trilogy by Jeff VanderMeer, Annihilation stars Natalie Portman, Oscar Isaac, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tessa Thompson, Gina Rodriguez and Tuva Novotny.

After watching the trailers I have definitely deemed this as a movie experience I can’t miss.  It has too many exciting and beautiful elements that cannot go unnoticed.  Have you seen the Beautiful Shimmer and creatures that relic in the trailers?  In honor of the New Movie Annihilation, I thought it would be fun to enclosed a recipe that would be the perfect food for venturing into the unknown (The Shimmer), something quick, easy, and a non-perishable food.  Thanks to Baking-Ginger I was able to find a simple yet tasty recipe. It has all the perfect elements to keep one from going famish.

I just can’t tell you how excited I am that winter is almost over, and Spring is literally just around the corner, and you know what that means. Time for Heaps of Sunshine, Perfect Temperatures, Fresh Breezes, More Sunny Hours in a day, +Flowers+Flowers everywhere, Workouts Outside, Spring Cleaning, Recharging Trips to Nature, and Easter. Which is always the perfect time to make beautiful memories with my family.

The Spring weather couldn’t be more of a perfect time to hunt for adorable outfits for my triplets. I have to admit that one of my most favorite things to do is dress up my babies.  As a Mother of Five, I know this time won’t last forever and there will be a day that they won’t let mom pick out their clothes.

When the opportunity to try Matilda Jane clothing, emerged I was so excited, I’ve heard so many good things about Matilda Jane Clothing. They have the sweetest patterns and color,  and the best part is they have matching accessories! It was the cutest thing to see them feeling so pretty and fancy in their Matilda Jane outfits. My girls absolutely loved their outfits.  Matilda Jane is known for their fun and cheerful patterns. Their goal is to bring happiness to all those who wear Matilda Jane

“It’s all about keeping a little girl… a little girl. Keeping her youthful. Keeping her spinning and twirling and carefree. And most importantly, bringing her happiness. “DENISE DEMARCHIS, MJC FOUNDER

I couldn’t agree more, it is very important to have little girls dress like “little girls”.  I am in no rush to grow up my sweet little girl and dressing them age appropriate is very important to me as well. Matilda Jane has clothing for all ages as well as accessories, and bags. With so many adorable and fun patterns that will surely bring a smile to your face.

I had the pleasure of collaborating with Summer Huber, local Trunk Keeper #1577 for Matilda Jane. Her family moved to Henderson in 2006 following her husband’s Dental school graduation. Her husband bought a dental practice in Boulder City in 2008. Her family consisted of 5 amazing kids 3 boys and 2 girls, Hunter (18), Annalise (15), Thomas (12), Brooklyn (9) and Owen (7). At the time she was a SAHM, when her baby started kindergarten in 2016 that promoted her to become a trunk keeper for Matilda Jane Clothing. She wanted to share her love for the amazing clothing Summer had been buying her girls and even herself to everyone! She loved the way Matilda Jane made her and the girls feel when they would put it on, it was like they can conquer anything thrown there way, it was the feeling of confidence.
 
A lot of people out here in the West have never heard of Matilda Jane Clothing. I’d like to spread the brand name to our local Vegas moms! Matilda Jane is sold exclusively through trunk keepers. I am a trunk keeper. I would love to get my small business out there to our local ladies. I know they will love the quality of the fabrics and especially the way the clothing grows with your child. You can get years out of Matilda Jane, not just a season.  In the photo below you can see the same dress worn from 2013 to today in 2018! Dress, tunic than a top.
