Bloom Voxbox for the month of May

There were quite a bit of goodies in this box. I actually did an unboxing here:

There was one item I really enjoyed. It was the Sunbelt granola bar. It was one of the best I’ve had. Maybe because it was covered in chocolate and had chocolate chips in it. It was definitely the best in the box. I wish I had gotten a whole box of food though, only because I’m pregnant and I can’t really use a lot of the products.

I wish they would have put 2 or 3 three in there. Or a full size box lol. You guys should try this out. It’s really yummy!

NOTE: I received these items complimentary from Influenster for review purposes.

This was a highly anticipated movie for us and we were so excited to see this. Last night we went to our local theater and it was packed. We were lucky to find seats in the upper portion of the theater because, apparently, a lot of teens wanted to see it on a school night. I remember not even staying up that late for a movie when I was a teen. Kids these days are so spoiled, lol. Don’t they have homework or something? Well, anyway, we were lucky enough to not get seats in the front of the theater.

When the movie started, I didn’t even notice that it had started. I thought that it was the beginning of another trailer. Haha, silly me. The movie starts with a little bit of a background story of the Winter Soldier. I’ve actually never seen the other Captain America movies. I’ve never been a big fan of him but their stories always mix together so I’m planning on watching the older films.

This movie focuses on the splitting up of the Avengers team. There have been complaints on how the Avengers cause massive destruction wherever they are. This film made me think about how true that is. You see these movies and don’t thing anything of it but lives get destroyed and people get hurt. It’s nothing like how Superman (in the old movies) handled things. He always tried his best to make sure that people didn’t die while he was trying to apprehend a criminal. It almost seems like the Avengers don’t really care about how much damage they cause just as long as justice is served. You notice this in many scenes and you only see how much people are hurting in this movie. They come forward and demand justice. They demand for the Avengers to take responsibility for their actions.

There was a document drawn up to keep the Avengers in check called the Sokovia Accords. Sokovia was one of the places where so many people got hurt and killed due to certain Avenger actions. Captain America didn’t want to sign the document and was completely against everything it stood for. Iron Man on the other hand, after being approached by a grieving mother, is all for the Sokovia Accords. There is this great divide within the team which eventually splits them up. I believe that the Accords were a good idea but maybe could have been tweaked. I don’t believe that there couldn’t have been some sort of negotiation about that. There’s just been so much death that the Accords were needed. Everything in life has rules. Even though the Avengers are sort of rogue agents that protect the world, they have to abide by rules too.

Both sides make great arguments for their side but I still think that they should have all signed the Accords. It would have made everything easier and there wouldn’t have been so much fighting and they would have caught the guy so much sooner.

What I loved so much about the movie is the humor that was blended in so nicely with the fight scenes. I also really liked that they have Antman and Black Panther in there too. I was a little taken aback by Spiderman but he didn’t fail to entertain. The fight scenes were just so amazing and I loved the special effects. Always a plus in my book. I can’t wait for the next one!

So this has been on Facebook and everywhere on the internet. Which side are you on? I’m obviously on Team Stark. Click below to choose your side.

 

Friday Crafts: 8-bit Baby Groot Tutorial

It’s been a while since I’ve dabbled in 8-bit art. I did a video in the past about perler beads:

This time I made an 8-bit character using Hama beads. These are more flexible because I used the mini beads instead of the regular sized ones. These are really fun to make with your kids and friends. You can make so many things with them like magnets, wall art, decorations for your notebooks. The possibilities are endless🙂 Let me know if you make your own Hama bead art and feel free to post them on my Facebook page!

Here is where I got all my supplies:

  1. Hama beads
  2. Tweezer

This is the image I was working off of. I actually added a little more green and brown to groot to make him look a little more put together.

Screen-Shot-2016-02-11-at-12.35.48-PM

This is one of the few girly movies I will watch in the theater. I typically wait to see these types of movies online or on DVD. I just really liked the cast and my fiance was nice enough to see it with me. If you don’t know what this movie is about, the title says it all. It’s all about mothers and their impact on our lives. No matter how bad your relationship is with your mother, you still need that motherly figure in your life. I have a really good relationship with my mom and this made me teary eyed a couple of times. I just tugs at the heart strings and even if you don’t like chick flicks, go see this one. If you don’t have a good relationship with your mom, it will make you appreciate your mother more. I really enjoyed this film and I hope you will too.

I thought the acting was good and it was also funny in all the right parts. It was just a really fun movie to see. I was afraid that it might be a little bit too girly, but it really wasn’t. I just loved Jennifer Aniston and Julia Roberts in this movie.

I really don’t want to say anything more about it because I don’t want to ruin it for you guys. This is one of those films that you just have to see for yourself. It’s not a super complicated plot but it gets it’s point across. Go see it with friends, go see it with your mom. Let me know your thoughts if you’ve seen this. I would love to know what you think of this movie.
