Fall in Love with "The Fault in Our Stars" on Digital HD now! #TFIOS @FoxHomeEnt @FHEInsiders

The Fault in Our Stars is now available on  digital HD and I am a little excited to say the least!   I am a total book nerd, so I was anxiously awaiting the release of this movie.  Just like a good book that one reads over and over, this is a movie that your will watch over and over again!

 A little about the movie:
Hazel (Shailene Woodley) and Gus (Ansel Elgort) share a sarcastic wit, a disdain for the ordinary, and a love that sweeps them on an unforgettable journey. Although the teens face challenges, they learn that while life isn’t perfect, love is extraordinary. Laura Dern and Sam Trammell also star in this powerful film based on John Green’s New York Times bestseller.

For those of you who have not read the book, the storyline focuses on two teenagers Augustus and Hazel who meet at a cancer support group.  From at first glance you can feel the chemistry, they are drawn together but not just because they have cancer, but by love and all they want to experience together.   The emotional journey they embark on, has you hooked.  You will cry, laugh and wish for an alternate ending, but all of us book nerds know how it ends.

 As with all books turned into movies, you will notice some subtle differences in The Fault in Our Stars, the movie omits Hazel's best friend (Kaitlyn), so Hazel appears to be a loner, but it works.  Another character omitted was Gus' former girlfriend Caroline who died of cancer.  There were a few other smaller differences throughout the movie, but the biggest difference for me was at the end, when Hazel searches everywhere for that "letter" Gus wrote for her, that is portrayed differently in the movie, it is not as frantic, emotional, gut wrenching as the book.

The acting was superb, Woodley and Elgort portrayed the characters exactly as I imagined.  Laura Dern nailed Hazel's mom!   I was also shocked that William Defoe was cast as  Van Houten, I was expecting an older cantankerous character.    I truly loved this film, even once I was done watching it, I wanted more.  I will be watching this film over and over again.

Looking for some girl time this weekend, I would suggest experiencing The Fault in Our Stars!   A great book turned into a movie is always a safe bet and good time.  A great way to stay connected with the characters we fell in love with on paper, now to only fall in love again on the big screen!

Crayola: Back to School #Giveaway - win a $25 gift card! #Back2School

For over 100 years, Crayola has never missed a first day of school and 2014 is no exception!  Well this year they are adding some new products to their collection and I am super excited about them!  Just check out the  newest products as well as standard school supplies for every shopping list that will ensure your kids are sent school with the best:
  • Brand new for 2014 are Crayola Ultra-Clean Washable Markers, featuring all-new washability technology that allows these markers to wash out of skin, clothing and now from painted walls! Ultra-Clean will allow teachers to wash off common classroom desks with ease.
  • Crayola Visi-Max Dry Erase Markers are designed to help maximize classroom visibility. New for Spring 2014, Visi-Max Dry Erase Markers have improved color vibrancy, making them easier to read.
  • And who can forget about those other back-to-school necessities? 
I love that Crayola now has  the Visi-Max Dry Erase Markers. Not only do we have to provide dry erase markers  for the children to use on their dry erase boards, but we must provide for the teachers as well.  I love they markers have improved color vibrancy, making them easier to read.  Low odor and easy erase is a must for the kids and these markers have just those qualities.

Currently the Crayola store online is closed, but will reopen on 09/04!  They will have a brand new shopping experience for you so please check back next week or sign-up  to be notified when the new store is ready.

With some schools in full swing and others starting soon, it is always best to buy extra school supplies and have on hand.   I actually have a container in the basement, just for extras!  This way when the kids come home and say they need new markers, glue, fill in the blank, I am not making a mad dash to the store.  This year my kids' school lists also include washable markers, crayons, colored pencils and water color paints.  So of course I turned to Crayola to fill all those needs.  The Crayola Ultra-Clean Washable Markers are perfect for school.   They are bright and vibrant, yet still wash out of clothes and even walls!   Well now Crayola even offers washable watercolor paints.  Kids can get creative and as moms we don't have to worry about their clothes getting ruined.

I am super excited for the new store to open, so I can pick up some extra supplies and items to keep the creative juices flowing.  Well thanks to the great folks at Crayola, one lucky reader (US only) will win a $25 gift card to get some creative items!

The Fault in Our Stars hit digital HD yesterday and I am a little excited to say the least!   I am a total book nerd, so of course I read this book.  My friend and I read it at the same time, so we could chat about it while reading. When she found out that the digital version was out this week, my phone buzzed with a message asking when  this weekend were we going to watch it!  So plans have been made, while the men folk watch football this weekend, we will be watching the digital version via iTunes on my laptop!  I foresee a lot of tears to be shed.  I actually texted my friend to be prepared to see me ugly cry, I know we will get choked up if it is anything like the book!

A little about the movie:
Hazel (Shailene Woodley) and Gus (Ansel Elgort) share a sarcastic wit, a disdain for the ordinary, and a love that sweeps them on an unforgettable journey. Although the teens face challenges, they learn that while life isn’t perfect, love is extraordinary. Laura Dern and Sam Trammell also star in this powerful film based on John Green’s New York Times bestseller.

So if you don't have any plans this Labor Day weekend or looking for some girl time this weekend, I would suggest experiencing The Fault in Our Stars!   A great book turned into a movie is always a safe bet and good time.  A great way to stay connected with the characters we fell in love with on paper, now to only fall in love again on the big screen!
