Nintendo Switch News – Luigi’s Mansion 3

Post written in collaboration with Nintendo. All opinions are my own. #NintendoFamilyFun Most recently my family and I attended a spooky event hosted by Nintendo to preview Luigi’s Mansion 3. The previous arcade version has been my kids’ go-to game for a long time. Whenever they quickly disappear, we usually find them at this game. I mean, what’s not to like about hunting ghosts with a flashlight and vacuum cleaner? Play as Luigi or Gooigi. Now it will be better than ever with new moves, new themed floors, new tools, new challenges, and more! Luigi’s Manion 3 becomes available on Nintendo Switch just in time for Halloween on October 31, … READ MORE >>

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s LOVE NEVER DIES

I received tickets to review the show. All opinions are my own.  It has been 10 years since the Phantom disappears and Christine, due to hardships and because she needs the money, accepts an invitation to perform at a renowned opera house in New York. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Love Never Dies” is the sequel to “The Phantom of the Opera”, and it is now performing at Segerstrom Center for the Arts April 24 through May 5, 2018! “The Phantom of the Opera” is one of my most favorite Broadway musicals so when I learned about “Love Never Dies,” I had to go see it.

ODYSSEO by Cavalia Flash Ticket Giveaway! #odysseoOC

Odysseo by Cavalia is back in Orange County for the holidays! We attended a media preview for opening weekend. What a super spectacular show! Both my parents and toddler loved it! It was a beautiful performance of human and horse, and it is one of the best performances I have ever seen. I loved how the horses were gracefully composed throughout the show, and my toddler loved seeing the princess balance on the two horses. The tribal performers were really fun to watch too. My favorite part was when the stage turned into water. What a treat for everyone! -Leyna Odysseo by Cavalia November 16, 2016 to January 8, 2017 … READ MORE >>

MAMMA MIA Returns to Segerstrom Center November 22-27! (Farewell Tour)

MAMMA MIA!, the smash hit musical based on the songs of ABBA, returns to the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa November 22-27, 2016. I saw it when they were here last time and loved it especially when they sang all-time-favorites like “Dancing Queen”, “S.O.S.” and “Take a Chance on Me”. MAMMA MIA! is one of the most successful musicals of all time and one of only five musicals to have run more than ten years on Broadway.
