Up Your Commitment To The Environment

Following last week’s report of a large part of Antarctica breaking off into the ocean, perhaps it’s time to up our individual contribution in the fight against combating climate change. As more and more countries are making environmental commitments, you might feel like there’s more you can do as an individual to decrease your carbon footprint. Here are a few ideas that are easy to do, and might save you some money, too.

Recycle moreI don’t just mean your typical recycling with your cardboard and glass, I mean taking it further and applying recycling to more areas of your life like clothing and household products. Next time you’re looking for something new, consider whether it could be bought secondhand - you might just save some serious money, too.

Renting and SharingThere are more and more sites out there for sharing and renting. For upmarket clothing, consider using sites like renttherunway or girlmeetsdress, where you can rent designer clothes for a limited time for a much lower fe…

The Boss Baby

AVAILABLE JULY 25!
Rated PG 98 minutes

DreamWorks Animation and the director of Madagascar invite you to meet a most unusual baby. He wears a suit, speaks with the voice and wit of Alec Baldwin, and stars in the animated comedy, DreamWorks’ The Boss Baby. The Boss Baby is a hilariously universal story about how a new baby's arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator, a wildly imaginative 7 year old named Tim. With a sly, heart-filled message about the importance of family, DreamWorks‘ The Boss Baby is an authentic and broadly appealing original comedy for all ages.

REVIEW:
Clever and entertaining!
I loved hearing my favorite Beatles tune! When it played, I realized how much kids would love it too. The way they sang it geared it more to a child but it was good.
A great family movie is one that can capture the child and adult alike. This movie definitely  did that. Even the dog got up to the screen a …

Another V.C. Andrews novella this week for the #Friday56 #Instagram56

Corliss by V.C. Andrews (13)

Kindle: 1543 KBPrint: 120 pagesPublisher: Pocket Star (June 12, 2017)ASIN: B01MDNKX41
Book One of the Girls of Spindrift. From the New York Times bestselling author of the Flowers in the Attic and My Sweet Audrina series, now Lifetime movies, here begins a haunting new series featuring highly intelligent teenage girls who struggle to survive a specialized high school and find their place in a world that doesn’t understand them.

Such is the burden of being brilliant.

Corliss is not like the other girls at her Los Angeles high school. Incredibly intelligent, shy, and a loner, she has difficultly in fitting in. What’s worse, a clique of girls is out to get her because she’s not down with their games.

On the night of a school party, her refusal to take drugs with the girls leads them to take matters into their own hands—spiking her drink. Quickly, Corliss’s entire life is turned upside down and no one—not even the handsome valedictorian who had agreed to go out with her—looks at her the same …
