Disney's Doc McStuffins Mobile Clinic - Move over Dora.

This review was facilitated; BB got it in the mail for her opinion. Y aqui esta.


HolaHolaHola My Beautifuls!


Hoy Babushka gets to review the newest of Disney's Doc McStuffins videos- Mobile Clinic.  Once again the S Sisters were looking out for BB, because the Doc happens to be the latest love of my granddaughter La Princesa.  Not only that, but it's also her 5th Bday on March 27 and she'll be getting this DVD - talk about Terrific Twofer!!


NOW IN STORES!!!


Honestamente, I wanted to see how could Doc replace the classic y muy querida Dora, so I was happy to receive and review the DVD.  Ahora, let's see what La Princesa enjoys about the Doc.

Episode 1- Doc McStuffins Goes McMobile


In this episode Doc McStuffins realizes she needs a mobile way to tend to her patients. 

The takeaways were:

Checkups-  what is done during a doctor visit
Perserverance- the Doc kept at her "Doc Mobile" until it became a reality.


Episode 2 Chip Off The Ol' Box


The support of friends & family is the main idea of this episode. 

Takeaways:

It's OK to ask for help.
Parents get sick too.
Believe in yourself.


Episode 3 Doc to the Rescue


Staying Calm during Emergencies was the main point of this episode.

Now, even though that was the main point and takeaways for children, 
for BB this was my fav because it was hysterical!! 
 In this scene the Doc asks the doll what she learned- and BB quotes, 

"Fashion Wear isn't the answer to everything"


Episode 4- Don't Knock the Noggin'



The importance of headgear is highlighted in this episode.

Takeaway:

You can be "Rad" and cool while wearing a helmet.
Helmets help against head injuries.



Ok, BB can see the attraction and even appreciates La Princesa going to the Doc.

De veras, how can you not see the pluses of a female doctor, African American, who can fix toys with intelligence, care and song, while also having a loving family who supports her and her medical practice.  BELLA!! I can see where my granddaughter would sympathize and see herself, and a great role model like Doc McStuffin is most celebrado en our house. Now... if we can only teach her to speak in Spanish...


BB wholeheartedly approves and enjoys Disney's Doc McStuffins Mobile Clinic and knows y'all will too.  


Let Babushka know what's your view on the Doc and which was your favorite episode.

P.S.  If you think this is the only thing La Princesa is getting for her bday- JU SO FONII!!!
  Pero that will be in another post.

A Pre-Valentine's Get together - with AMBAR



HolaHolaHola My Beautifuls!!

Dedicated to +ambarmusical .

 This post was originally part of my Miami recap, 
but the woman it talks about deserves the same trato that she gives- 
detailed attention, sincerely and with heart.


SAVE THE DATE

PRE-VALENTINE'S GET TOGETHER

 

When:  Thursday, February 13, 2014 at 6pm

Where:  1050 Brickell Avenue

12th Floor, Wine Room

RSVP:


At almost 3 years in the blogging gig, I've been to a few events and press junkets, but I must say nada and none had the special touch of this one.  A small group of bloggers for an intimate gathering and personal attention. It truly did feel like a group of friends just hanging out, enjoying the good things in life and each other. 






 By the end of the evening BB could tell this was a true representation of our hostess Ambar. 


 For those who don't know who she is, she is a multitalented singer who put her career on hold while she raised her child.This kind of dedication to the "realness" of life eminates in her.  In her toast she stressed that Valentine's Day wasn't only about romantic love, that there were so many other types just as, if not more important.  

She dedicated the evening to family, friends and self love.  


Ambar instructed us to follow our dreams and our hearts- and this is one lady who did and does just that.  After leaving "show business" to care for her son, shes returned como si nada- without skipping a beat. But she's definitely has lots of people dancing to one!! Her new CD is BUENISIMO!!  Honestly, Babushka isn't much of a follower of the newer musica, but I definitely can bailar to this one. See if you don't agree with BB.





 Who say's you can't go back again??  Not only is she back, but she's focused and with fervor. She  has her cd and also shows her love of fashion by bringing us her own line of designer watches.  Although they were debuting in March, she was the perfect hostess and gave her guests autographed, numbered timepieces before the official launch.



With all her wonderful qualities, vision, and genuine generosity,
 todas fell in love with this Bella Boricua.



Please join Babushka as she follows Ambar on-

Tweety-   @AmbarMusical

And let's all vote for her en los Premios Juventud- vote by 3/30 !!

And now, another of her songs y-

♪ A BAILAR SE HA DICHO!♪





Babushka Besos a todos.  Cuidensen.

HolaHolaHola My Beautifuls!


That is the picture of Babushka getting ready for Spring Cleaning- #LimpiezadePrimavera.
Y'all know cleaning is about as high on BB's enjoyable,must do list as exercise, and in small, humid,spaces it's doble.

BB enjoy #LimpiezadePrimavera??  JU SO FONII!!!

Ok si, yo se, I know- cleaning is a necessary evil, and so in Babushka’s eyes that means  spring cleaning is a super villain.
 So who else but super heroes to do the job?  
Babushka knew just who to call-

cb_scjohnson_bb.JPG
BB was so happy to see them at my Wakulla Walgreens that I just had to give them un big abrazote!!



#MyColectiva helped me summon these SuperChampions- SuperCampiones of SC Johnson.

Not only did Walgreens have them on special, pero tambien, they also had a coupon on it!
TREMENDO TWOFER!!!!!
Notice Babushka got the Antibacterial Multi Surface and the Toilet Wand.
Oh Si! The annihilation will be swift, strong, and sanitary.
Those germs stand no chance, and BB will shed neither sweat nor tears. Los dias de sudar y llorar se fueron.  
Como decimos en buen Cubano- con estos SuperCampiones, SC Johnson "se lo comieron!"

Sabemos, we all know the commercials with the foaming bubbles-son Cutisimos!! Y que me dicen, what do y’all think of those crows hitting the clear windows?  Bueno My Beautifuls, not only do these products, Scrubbing Bubbles y Windex talk the talk, they walk the walk.  

SON BUENISIMOS!!

Solamente con un Whissh! de Windex, se fueron todos los germenes- y que brillo!!
 It was actually fun spraying with my SuperChampion Windex, each Whissh! brought clean and shine. 
And the wand? Use it, then lose it. Non of those nasty toilet bowl germs hanging around.
BB actually got into cleaning- de veras!


Yo sabia que no me lo hiban a creer, so I took some photos.


Dueling the Dreaded Dungeon.
















You see My Beautifuls?? Vieron?? 
Anything that can make cleaning fun tiene que ser, they've got to be SC!!

P3 #PortableProtein Pack & Plebeian Pride - Partners Perfecto!!!

and its advertiser.



 HolaHolaHola My Beautifuls!!!

As BB plans for another Miami visit, I start by making my snack list. Quee?? 
Doesn't everyone start packing with snacks first??  Continuing.

Snacks- the stuff sweet dreams are made of. But sweet isn't always good. Babushka had a lagging, sluggish feeling after those long bus rides and knows it was the snacks in my Popa bag. Balanced and nutritous were missing. Felizmente Oscar Mayer came out with the P3, a portable protein pack that was perfecto for my traveling. Nothing fancy, just practical and powerful. Ok si, JUSOFONII!!!  just like BB. And the price My Beautifuls??  A dollar.  Yes, you read that correctly. Uno, One dollar Americano.  You know what BB had to do ...



Actually, it went like this. 
 BB went into her neighborhood Wakulla Walmart and found the P3 right away.










And then when I saw the price...










ESO!!!


As you saw My Beautifuls, I took all they had- which wasn't much. But honestly, for all that #MeatCheeseProtein I was surprised they even had that much still on the shelves!  Did you see the cantidad, quantity you get for your dinero??





 There are 4 varieties :
 Applewood Smoked Turkey Breast, Applewood Smoked Ham,
Rotisserie Seasoned Chicken Breast, and Slow Roasted Turkey Breast.

 Missing is the Ham P3, pero again, I was pleasantly surprised to find these!!




And they really are Yummy in my tummy!

My favorite so far is the Slow Roasted Turkey Breast, and Sweetie's partial to the Rotisserie Seasoned Chicken Breast. We're both looking forward to trying the Applewood Smoke Ham, and keep going back to Walmart to see if it's been restocked!  What can BB say??  We know a good thing when we see it, and as Sweetie said about the P3, "Hey Honey, these here are some of your twofers. They taste good and are good for my wallet."  Babushka couldn't agree more. 



Es mas, and matter of fact, they're now my choice of snack when I do my writing.

Blogging can take horas, and when my muse Marti is on a roll I don't dare stop her. There's nothing better than a quick P3 with its #meatcheesenuts combo to keep BB going.  No lag and no having to stop everything to make a meal.  

DEFINITELY a Babushka Twofer!!



Gracias #CollectiveBias for introducing BB to this #PortableProtein




NOW Babushka's ready for her next trip!!

P.S.  For more pics of when BB uses P3 go to Feibu, and the rest of the video will be posted on YouTube...eventually.

Stampin' My Style at Sweetie's w/ Kleenex - Classic & Cutisimo!!


Post is sponsored by Kleenex, via Linqia, with words and opinions of BB.



HolaHolaHola My Beautifuls!!


A fact in Cuban Households. When someone needs a facial tissue, they yell, "Oye, dame un Kleenex!" 

Only natural that the brand name would be synonymous with the item, considering they've been making quality tissues for 90 years! Ahora, just because something's a classic doesn't mean it's boring or stuck in its ways.

Quee?? JU SO FONII Ok si, that goes for Kleenex and BB.


Imaginate-
 In their 90 Años of Style, Kleenex:

- has been in the MOMA twice!
- in 1941 had the True Confessions campaign that invented Social
-is the leader via a humble beginning as a facial tissue for removing makeup

And when Babushka says leader, she ain't just whislin' La Guantanamera!!

Kleenex has so many styles it's hard to pick... I was lead to buy todo!


Check out the modern prints! 




Classic yet a tad of Bohemia. 


and for the ever traveling- gotta have this travelin' trio!!




Now you KNOW Babushka had to put this right away into the car 
and of course my Signature Popa Bag.



Speaking of my signature, putting it in my new home has been very slow going.
 Being a newlywed and entering the home of two confirmed bachelors has not been easy. 
 One treads slowly when changing, rearranging the prior look. 


 Kleenex is the perfect way to make a stamp of style in a little container.

Look what I did to the "office" wall bookcase.


Not the prettiest picture...

but now with BB's Kleenex style,


at least there's algo pretty on that bookcase.

Quee?  You expected me to clean that?

Y'all new around here aren't ya?


No My Beautiful, that Pop of color is the first thing BB sees when she looks that way now.


Bella isn't it??

You see, like all things in life- 
BB decides to focus on the beauty, and that box of Kleenex made the bookcase.

Inspired and knowing my #KleenexStyle was perfection, Babushka dared to tackle- 
the boy's sacred TV Cabinet!! 



 Now, since this is our shared, common area, the sneezes are shared too. 
Not only has Kleenex got the Style part, but it combines it with different types of tissues!  
Did you notice the "Sneeze Shield" box?


Di' la verdad. Isn't that box just perfecto?? 
 Perfect color with the statue, yet the bursts of color match  my artist brother-in-laws painting. 

 Hecho, made for BB. 


Now, lest you think Babushka has no space she can call her own, 
let me share my bedroom reading nook and side table.




Again, the BB stamp via Kleenex.
  They've got my every room, every mood, and even every texture for whatever, wherever.

Which is your #KleenexStyle?

Visit the site and let me know.

Go get your POP of perfeccion con Kleenex.

Classic & Cutisimo!!
