Into The Woods coming in December!

I have always been a movie girl because I was born and raised in L.A. Hubby is a theatre guy because he is a professional theatre lighting designer. I started loving live theatre when we started dating. I love it when theatre and movies come together because we both get what we want.

I saw "Into the Woods" on stage years ago and I loved it. The music is great, the story is wonderful and now it's a movie!! I cannot wait to see this! I am also glad it was directed by Rob Marshall who also did one of my favorite musicals into movies, Chicago! This is a must see this Christmas!

“Into the Woods” is a modern twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy)—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them. Rob Marshall, the acclaimed filmmaker behind the Academy Award®-winning musical “Chicago” and Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” directs the film, which is based on the Tony®-winning original musical by James Lapine, who also penned the screenplay, and legendary composer Stephen Sondheim, who provides the music and lyrics. Produced by Marshall, John DeLuca, “Wicked” producer Marc Platt and Callum McDougall, “Into the Woods” will be released in theaters Dec. 25, 2014.

Spicy Shelf Review and Giveaway!

Because I love to cook, I have tons of spices. A lot of them are the regular type you buy in the store. Some of them are specialty spices I have collected on my travels. The unfortunate thing is my new kitchen does not have tons of space for my spices. I have had to put some in the pantry. This is inconvenient because I want them right by the stove when I need them.

Luckily, I found a great organizing tool that helps me reclaim some of my spice space and have them handy when I am cooking. The Spicy Shelf is a great new product that gives you a perfect solution to not having enough space in your spice cabinet.

The Spicy Shelf comes with 2 Spicy Shelves, 8 small legs, 4 leg braces and 8 large legs. The different sized legs allow you to size the Spicy Shelf any configuration you would like. This allows you to double or even triple the space depending on your cabinets or pantry.

The Spicy Shelf is wonderful for my kitchen. My spice cabinet was a hot mess. The Spicy Shelf allowed me to take my spices and consolidate them into one area. The Spicy Shelf was super easy to put together. We tried different configurations and because of the size of my kitchen cabinet, I could only do one shelf and then do a secondary one. It worked out fantastically.

I was able to put my large spices on the bigger shelf, then the smaller ones on the smaller Spicy Shelf. The space underneath allowed me to put my awkward shaped spices. I really love the Spicy Shelf. I found spices I had no idea I had!

If you have the same problem I did, you need to look into the Spicy Shelf. It turns that unruly mess of a spice cabinet into an organized space. Head over to the site and check out the video. Use the $5.00 Off Promo Code -- SPICE5. The Spicy Shelf Organizer is $19.95 Plus $7.95 P&H.
