Boston Advance Screening: Ingrid Goes West (free passes available)

 

ingrid goes west, movie, aubrey plaza

When Parks & Recreation ended a few years back I felt empty inside. From Little Sebastian to Leslie Knope’s waffle obsession to the amazing Jean-Ralphio Saperstein, I’m not sure there was a better cast! One of the characters I loved most was April Ludgate aka Aubrey Plaza. Her humor was dry and her heart was likely black. And I loved it!

I enjoyed seeing Aubrey recently on Criminal Minds and I am super excited to see her hit the big screen in Ingrid Goes West, premiering nationwide August 25, 2017. Aubrey plays Ingrid Thorburn a social media stalker alongside Taylor Sloane (played by Elizabeth Olsen) an insta-famous star. The movie follows Ingrid to LA to continue her stalkerish behavior while befriending Taylor and things quickly take a turn for the worst. A Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award winner at Sundance, the brilliant dark comedy pokes fun at social media proving #perfect isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

If you’re an Aubrey Plaza fan and looking for a fun way to spend a night out with friends in Boston, I’ve got ya covered!

Grab your FREE tickets today to see #IngridGoesWest on Wednesday, August 16th at 7pm at the AMC Boston Common! Oh, and tell your friends!

Car Buying & Selling Made Easy with Cars.Com!

Sponsored post.

cars.com

We’ve been a car free family for six years now. Luckily, living just outside of Boston, it is pretty easy to get around via public transportation, walking, biking and the occasional car rental. We are a family that makes it work! With the arrival of baby number two in February I am once again the “bag lady” and carrying around 28 bags and two children is tough! Possible, but tough! I miss the convenience of having a vehicle, especially in the summer when we often want to pick up and go on adventure! Though I sure don’t miss having a car note!


I’ve been leaning heavily towards leasing or purchasing a car, especially as I forecast commuting in the winter with two kids! It’s hard to know where to start looking for suggestions on affordable, safe, family oriented cars that can take our entire family (dog included) to our destinations smooth and safe. Luckily, for non-car-savvy people like me, there is a solution – Cars.com! Choosing a car takes time and research and for me it’s all about the feeling I get when I get behind the steering wheel and start driving. One of the largest automotive sites, Cars.com wants to take the frustration out of the car choosing and buying process and connected consumers with local dealers all across the country. And, to make things easier, they have an easy to use mobile app so you can browse through used and new cars at your fingertips. Hooray for technology that makes our lives easier! Looking to sell your vehicle? You’re in luck, Cars.com helps shoppers buy, sell and service their cars. A literal one stop automotive stop!

As much as I’d love an SUV like a Kia Sorrento (like my sister) or maybe a Highlander, I’m keeping an open mind as we slowly dip into car buying. Well, that’s not entirely true. I refuse to drive a mini-van. Nooooo, thank you!! Though with four adults, one dog and a partridge in a pear tree maybe a mini-van is in our future!!

Help – what are your tips for shopping for a family car? Tell me everything!

Comcast Announces Xfinity xFi: Your Custom Home Wi-Fi Experience

This is a sponsored post with Xfinity. All opinions, as always are my own.

Between my daughter, partner and I we have 11 devices in our home that are connected to WiFi! From catching up on the new season of Orange Is The New Black, to playing white noise for the baby to reading books on the kindle, we are a connected family and have been for awhile. Now that my daughter, who is 11, is using technology more (mostly to find the perfect slime recipe) it’s more important than ever to protect her while she’s online.

As a long time customer of Comcast, I love staying updated on the work they do in the community as well as new products and features. They recently launched Xfinity xFi which takes your home Wi-Fi experience to a whole new level.

In today’s digital world, convenience is king and Xfinity knows that and aims to create products that work with today’s on the go customer. With Xfinity xFi you have a digital dashboard to manage your home network, passwords, troubleshoot and (my favorite) create parental controls. No sneaking phones under the table at dinner time to watch cat videos! You can choose to pause Wi-Fi service during dinner or whenever you want!

How does it all work? A mobile app of course! And also on the web and though the X1 voice remote. Setup is a breeze as well. Current customers can click here or choose to download the xFi app which is available for iOs and Android users. Annnnd….there is no extra charge!

Why should you use Xfinity xFi?

  • Setup is super easy and no extra charge for customers
  • Edit your home Wi-Fi network from your mobile device, wherever you are!
  • Parental controls!
  • Assign family members specific devices
  • Monitor who is online and when

I (if you can’t already tell) love love Xfinity xFi! The parental controls are what I love most followed by being able to pause Wi-Fi whenever I want! Or when the family goes out and gets ice cream and brings it home to eat in front of you, and they forget you are dairy free. Wi-Fi paused, family!

If you are already a Comcast customer Xfinity xFi is a no brainer! Let me know how you like it! Comcast is the nation’s largest internet provider and offers one of the nation’s fastest in-home Wi-Fi experiences. The company’s Wi-Fi network has more than 17 million hotspots spread across U.S. homes, businesses, and outdoor locations.
