Cirque Italia Review

Last Saturday we had the opportunity to attend Cirque Italia in front of the Riviera Dunes Marina in Palmetto, Florida and it was amazing!

I had never been to a show like this before so I was excited to see what a water circus under the big tent would be like, and it certainly did not disappoint! 

When we arrived we grabbed some popcorn and light-up toys because, well, it’s a circus it’s a time for some extra fun.  Next, we went to find our seats, and because I was visiting on my own with the 3 kids I was very happy to see staff escorting guests to their seats as they entered the venue.  Little things like this make a mom whos hands are completely full’s life so much easier.

As soon as the show started, and these two clowns came out, I knew it was going to be a great time.  They had everyone laughing from the moment they took the stage and came out between each cirque act with new shenanigans that the kids absolutely loved!

The Cirque Performers were incredible, each performer had a unique talent that left us all in awe.  From tightrope walking to acrobatics, and even a cool rollerskating performance, this show was filled to the brim with amazing talent.

The water element of this show is something that makes Cirque Italia particularly unique, an ultra-modern water curtain surrounds the stage and controls every droplet that falls to the lagoon below, as words and designs are displayed on it throughout the performances.  

I can definitely give Cirque Italia two thumbs up!  They not only kept me in awe but also kept 3 kids entertained for the entire 2-hour show.  They were either laughing or staring with their eyes and mouth open wide in shock.

Here’s a bit more about the show:

Beginning in 2017, Cirque Italia, the first traveling Water Circus, introduced a second unit, the Gold Unit: a luxurious experience where technology and preforming arts are mixed to create a one-of-a-kind show. Now for 2018, a brand-new performance has been created. With over 90% of their shows being sold out, they decided it was the best time to provide a substantial investment into doubling their presence at the national level.

This new performance features an ultra-modern water curtain that controls every droplet of water meticulously. Audience members can expect to see words and beautiful patterns as the water falls to the ‘lagoon’ below. Cirque Italia is ready to provide a breathtaking experience. This new stage by itself is enough to amaze the most demanding audience, and synchronized with the most creative display of superhuman talent – the result is simply out of this world!

The latest trends of the industry are challenged with every Cirque Italia appearance and this 2nd unit is not any different. A careful casting selection has united the best artists from all over the world. This production will feature acts all the way from Russia to Mexico. Cirque Italia believes in multi-culturalism as one of their strongest assets.

Packed full of incredible acts, there is no room for boredom. The variety presented is exceptional. For those who enjoy whimsy, they have an Avatar and not one, but two mermaids. There is almost no bodily limit for their contortionist, Ricardo, as he bends in ways you never would have imagined. Their incredible wheel of death performance features a front summersault flip, something you will be hard-pressed to see anywhere else. If that doesn’t get your head spinning, perhaps their 5 roller skaters and their incredible tricks and turns will. And although Cirque Italia does not use animals in their performances, this year they will be featuring amazing life-like elephant puppets. They are so well made, you might just think they are real. Whether it’s a futuristic laser act or mesmerizing aerial performances, the show has something for all tastes and expectations. One thing Cirque Italia sets out to accomplish is to create a type of world-class entertainment suitable for all age groups.

This new second unit also follows the same strict animal-free policy that makes the Water Circus stand out from other circus entertainment shows.

The “magic touch” of the Italian entrepreneur Manuel Rebecchi, President and Owner of Cirque Italia, added to the flawless direction of the COO, Chanté DeMoustes, and has turned this once romantic project into a successful production known and acclaimed all over the country.

Don’t miss the opportunity to be amazed and transported to a fantastic realm where your deepest dreams can -and will- come true.

7 Tips for Entertaining with Ease This Holiday Season!

7 Tips for Entertaining with Ease This Holiday Season!

The best part of the holidays is spending time with family and friends, making amazing memories.  Each year we have a family Christmas party on my mom’s side of the family, A friends Christmas get together, and another big party with my Dad’s side of the family on Christmas Eve.  We all take turns hosting these parties, so I know how easy it can be to get bogged down with the cooking and cleaning so that by the end of the night you realize you didn’t get to truly connect with anyone. 
That is such a crummy feeling to have, especially during the holidays.  So, I have a round up of 7 great items that will have your family thinking you’re a hosting superstar with ease so that you can find time to enjoy the festivities yourself!

Simplify the Hors D’oeuvres but keep them delicious with Castello Cheese.  These gourmet cheeses make creating the ultimate cheese board easy and tasty.  I tried the Aged Havarti, Gouda, and Traditional Danish Blue Cheese and every bite was delicious!  A cheese board is a perfect appetizer that can be made up in minutes.  Plus, if you don’t know what to pair together on your board, Castello has an online Custom Cheese Board Builder, that asks you several questions then creates a list of the best variety for your taste.

Keep your appetizers looking festive and stylish with Snowflake Hors D’oeuvres Picks from Cracker Barrel.
I am very impressed by the quality of these holiday picks, the kick the look of your tablescape up a notch, and they would also make perfect holiday gifts if you’re not the one hosting this year!
Use Code: SHOP30 to receive 30% off storewide.

Reduce fat and calories while also making sure the dishes will be easy to wash while cooking your holiday dinner, by using PAM Cooking Spray.  These non-aerosol cooking sprays have no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, and give you a superior non-stick cooking surface.  I love how these bottles make it easy to control how much I’m using, and not having to soak and scrub my pans after dinner is a huge win!
Download the ibotta app and you can earn cash back on your purchase of PAM Spray Pump.

Have something special on hand for the little guests, like these adorable Reindeer and Santa Glass Milk Bottles from Cracker Barrel.  These Christmas milk bottles will definitely bring lots of little smiles to your dinner table, and after dinner, they would make an adorable Christmas decoration too.
Use Code: SHOP30 to receive 30% off storewide.

Keep the four-legged guests happy too with Wellness CORE Natural Pet Food.  This 100% grain free dog food contains dried raw bites of 100% meat with no fillers.  The recipe is high in protein for lean body mass and muscle tone but best of all, it must be yummy because our Brady ate up his whole bowl before I had time to put the bag away.

After the pups have a nutritious meal of their own treat them to a WHIMZEES Daily Dental Chew.  These great treats contain all-natural ingredients, freshen your dog’s breath, promote gum health, and clean their teeth.  Plus, they look adorable, and the kids love that Brady is brushing his teeth with us now!

And of course, it wouldn’t be a perfect holiday party without some beautiful decorations.  Luckily Christmas Central has everything you could possibly need to make your home into a magical Christmas setting.  From lights and trees to table linens and candle holders, Christmas Central is your one-stop shop for holiday decor and you don’t even have to leave your house.


I am in love with their Snowy Pine Flocked Tree and Trim, it is stunning!  I can imagine curling up on the couch with some hot cocoa and just watching the lights twinkle.

Are you hosting over the holidays?  I hope these products help make your festivities exciting and let you host with ease.

 

Disney’s Pixar’s Incredibles 2 Coming in 2018! Check out the New Trailer!

I am super excited about the news I’m sharing today!  Have you heard about the upcoming Disney Pixar’s Incredibles sequel?

Incredibles 2 hits theaters on June 15th, 2018 and after watching the newly released trailer, my family has already started the countdown!

Seriously how cute is this baby?!

Disney Pixar’s INCREDIBLES 2 Synopsis 

Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.

Our Thanksgiving Morning Tradition

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of Macy’s; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

Our Thanksgiving Morning Tradition

As a little girl, I remember waking up to a call from my Nana every Thanksgiving morning, asking if I was watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.  My mother always hosted Thanksgiving dinner, however, Nana would arrive in the morning before Santa made his way down the streets of Manhattan.
I hold these memories close to my heart, and that is why I made sure to keep the tradition alive with my own children. 

We started another tradition a few years ago of spending Thanksgiving in Charleston, South Carolina with my brother and our parents.  We rent a large house on Kiawah Island and enjoy some family time, yet we still wake up every Thanksgiving to watch the dazzling floats and Character Balloons fill up the screen.

This year marks the 91st Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and Macy’s has added some epic performances to the opening of the Thanksgiving Day Parade.  It will feature an all-star cast of celebrities all singing and dancing together in a performance of Dancin’ in The Street!  Also, as part of the first hour of festivities, Gwen Stefani will perform White Christmas at the Bryant Park ice rink!  New York during the holidays is always a breath-taking sight, while I wish I was one of the 3.5 million spectators that will be lining the streets of Manhattan, I’ll have to settle for being one of the 50 million people watching from the home, and cozying up with some coffee and my munchkins sounds just as good.  I can’t wait to see these performances though!

Make sure to tune in at 9 a.m. ET to watch the new opening of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!

Do you remember the first time you tuned in to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade? What about the parade do you look forward to most each year?
