Over the weekend I wore the ZONE "Electric Blooms" Anywear Unisex Lighweight Slip Resistant Injected Clog while doing all the "weekend" activities. These clogs kept my feet comfortable, while also looking so cute.

A few things that stood out for me include it really was slip resistant. Both the inside sole (so soft!) and outside sole kept me on my feet, while I was in the restaurant or outside in the backyard.

Speaking of being in the backyard, these clogs cleaned off easily with water so I can keep looking cute after my backyard adventures. LOL.

I also liked that I can use the strap for a full fit, or slide up so I can use the clogs as slip-ons.

So if you are looking for a unisex shoe line that's good for wearing both at work and home, then Cherokee Unisex Footwear is a great fit!

Here's a few more style options.

Spider-Verse fans get ready! I was able to screen Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, before the film released in theaters, and it is truly a mental, visual and audio treat!
3 Reasons to See Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse in Dolby Cinema

Note: I was invited as media to the movie screening. However any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

Because I wanted to FULLY be engrossed in this second Spider-Verse film, I choose to see it in a Dolby Cinema. And it was the perfect choice!

3 Reasons to See Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse in Dolby Cinema
3 Reasons to See Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse in Dolby Cinema
While one of the benefits of being in a Dolby Cinema are the spacious recliner seats with clear sight lines.....because I need to be comfortable while watching Miles swing around in the Spider-Verse!

But there's so much more to enjoy!

Getting back into the Spider-Verse

Just like the first film, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, we're taken into Miles world to see how he's living both as his neighborhood spider-man and a teen kid juggling school and his parents.

It was nice to get back into that world and catch up with Miles, even if that meant seeing him struggle with his family, missing his friends and facing a new villain and Spider-Verse challenges.

Meeting the other Spider-Verse "Spideys"

 Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse in Dolby Cinema

OMGosh! The Spideys! So many spider-people? animals? Spiders?! While part of the film is following Miles as he's introduced to Miguel O'Hara / Spider-Man 2099 and all the other Spideys and what that means....

The who film could have been just about that. There's SO much storytelling there! And what it means for Miles and his choice to be Spider-Man.

I LOVED seeing all the different Spideys and LOVE LOVE LOVE that one of them was a pregnant women, another a "black" female techie, and another a T-Rex. Because...of course!

Storylines within storylines within storylines

Listen! Across the Spider-Verse ended on a cliff hanger (spoiler!) BUT besides that, it could have went on and on and on. Cause there was SO much storytelling angles and it was ALL SO GOOD.

It's amazing they were able to keep different characters and their storylines just as interesting and Miles and hos storyline.

Your going to want to see Across the Spider-Verse again and again just to fit pieces together and try to figure out Easter eggs before the 3rd film releases in 2024.

During a preview for Parent’s Path Art Collection by Philips Avent, I meet women artists and have a first look at some of their artwork, which highlighted each artist reflections on their unique journey with motherhood.
Lauren J. Turner Parent’s Path Art Collection by Philips Avent

Note: I was invited as media. However any personal views expressed are 100% my own.

Each artistic piece depicted self-expression, self-care and community support as essential parts of nurturing new parents through the journey. While all the women are mothers, Philips Avent understands and supports each parenthood personal experiences.

To hear how one artist uses art to highlight her parenting experience, I interviewed Lauren J. Turner, a mother, artist, and birth worker (lactation & doula) who uses her passion for maternal health to celebrate and support families.

Interviewed with Artist Lauren J. Turner

Importance of Portraying Breastfeeding

Lauren J. Turner: It is definitely important to have representation. Being able to see yourself is important and sometimes you don't get the opportunity. Art gives us the opportunity to go into spaces that we would not necessarily see.

When I was breastfeeding my son, even before that, I did not get an opportunity to like see nursing happen. I never saw anybody breastfeeding growing up.

Lauren J. Turner: And then when I did it with my son, I had a family member tell me to put my breast away. Like, you know, as if it was something wrong. But the art is to celebrate that moment.

Connecting with Philip Avent

Lauren J. Turner: I think we connected via email or social media. But I use the bottles with my son. But with my daughter, I decided to just nurse from my body, but with my son, I needed the opportunity to get, you know, get time alone for my mental health.

Working with the brand means a lot to me because, they have the same ideology that I have, which is to celebrate these moments and allow people to feel comfortable with doing it.

Sometimes bottle feeding is absolutely necessary. Sometimes it's an option and having an option is important.

To get ready for Knights of the Zodiac live-action film, releasing in theaters May 12th, I interviewed Diego Tinoco about his role as Nero the Phoenix Knight and the message to take away.
Diego Tinoco Interview Knights of the Zodiac Live Action Movie

Note: I was invited as media for screening and cast interview. However any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

Appeal of Nero Character

Diego Tinoco: So much appeal to me about this character started on paper. Reading the script, seeing how he's kind of mysterious and sleek individual. And then really seeing in the third act of the script, all this explode.

So all of that on paper, but as an actor, you got to do research, right? Then I dug a little deeper into this guy in the original anime manga. And when I found most appealing was, this guy's past. This guy is dealing with so much tragedy.

Diego Tinoco: From watching the love of his life, literally get murdered in front of him, to watching his little brother get taken away from him, at such a young age.

This guy has been through it, right? But, I really tried to channel all of that, that tragedy, and that trauma to use that as fuel. And I think in the third act of this movie, that's when you'll really see all this guy's past come out and explode on the movie screen.

Preparing for Stunts & Action Scenes

Diego Tinoco: We had a lot of special training. We trained with Andy Chang, who was the stunt choreographer on Marvel's Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

So he handled the choreography for our movie and I worked with him for weeks. The choreography, the body behavior of this character, the all the fights scenes, all that stuff.

Diego Tinoco: Obviously, there were some things that I don't think I was talented enough to handle, and it was a little risky too, right?

So we had these really awesome stunt doubles, who who really took on some of the impacts, that I guess the producer wouldn't let me take on.

Memorable Scene for Latino Representation

Diego Tinoco Interview Knights of the Zodiac Live Action Movie

Diego Tinoco: I think one of the most memorable scenes for me to film was when Nero was turning into the Phoenix Knight. It was my first time working with wires and having this grand sci-fi type of transformation, right?

And I think once I was in the air, I wasn't even too high in the air, I was like, maybe like six feet or seven feet in the air, right.

Diego Tinoco: When you're in the air and seeing everybody below, it feels like such a magical moment. And you really think like wow, this is happening, I'm about to be a superhero!

And you don't see too many Latinos on the on the big screen turning into these iconic characters, so it was such an honor and a privilege.

The Film's Message

Diego Tinoco: I really want them to take away from this film, the powerful message that we instilled in the movie... which is nobody's destiny is written in stone.

You can create your own destiny, you can take charge of the cards that life is dealt you, and you can create the life that you want. I think that's a very powerful message.

I've said it all my life, I always tell my friends that, and I've been told that by my parents, my whole life growing up. And it's a message that I strongly believe in.

Diego Tinoco: I don't think anybody's defined by the circumstances that they're born into, and i don't think nobody should be defined by the circumstances that they're born into.

I think that in this life, the whole experience of living is being able to create this video game type of character. Create them, however you want. You know, that's ourselves, right? So I want people to walk with that message.

Diego Tinoco: And, then also, I want all my Latinos out there, to see a Latino on the big screen be like, hey, okay, there's Latino's doing that. I want people to leave inspired, all my Latin people out there, to leave inspired and be like, man, this guy's doing big things.

There's a lot of dark times we're going through, right now, right? But I want everybody go to cinema, enjoy a cinematic experience with the family, and just leave inspired feeling good.

I think that's what a movie should be all about.
