“Christmas Time Is In The Air Again” Single (Mariah Carey)
Looks like I’ve got my question answered by holiday music extraordinaire Mariah Carey. YES!!! We can now play Christmas music FINALLY! Thanksgiving is over and Mariah is here to assure us that “Christmas Time Is In The Air Again“, which just so happens to be a single off her Merry Christmas II You (2010) album. I personally think Mariah Carey is the best of the best when it comes to Christmas music; her songs are so giftedly spiritual and there isn’t one of her Christmas songs that you will not fall in love with. My favorite Christmas song of Mariah’s is the signature holiday tune that’s always the number one record on the holiday charts “All I Want For Christmas Is You” off of her first Christmas album Merry Christmas (1994).
Let’s Take A Flashback From Her Very First Christmas Music Video To Her Present On; (Merry Christmas To Merry Christmas II You).
“All I Want For Christmas Is You“

In the words of Mariah Carey “LET’S GET FESTIVE”!
You’re probably wondering what those UFO-looking things are for. Well they’re called Mega Balls. Mega balls are a new, revolutionary way to make ice cream for those of us who can’t afford, or don’t have the space for, big, giant ice cream machines. Last night my father and I made Hot Chocolate Ice Cream from scratch and it was the best ice cream I ever had!! You can find the Mega Ball at almost any retailer such as Wal-Mart, Target and Amazon for less than $40.00. It is totally worth it, I swear by this product and it’s a lot of fun and easy to make with kids!
The Mega ball comes with a booklet of different ice cream flavors you can make including S’mores, Coconut Almond and Cherry Chip! But here are the ingredients and directions for making the Hot Chocoloate Ice Cream I had last night. This will make about a Quart of ice cream for you and your family to enjoy!
1 Quart Heavy Whipping Cream
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
3/4 Cup & 2 Tablespoons Sugar
2 Hot Cocoa Mix Packets (marshmallow optional)
Rremove the lid from the ice end of the Mega Ball and fill with as much ice as you can and 1 cup of rock salt. The salt makes the ice even colder. Then, add the above ingredients in a container and shake well. Once the ingredients are well mixed, pour them into the metal cylander of the Mega Ball (on the opposite end of the mega ball from where you added the ice). Once all the ingredients are in, shake the ball for 20 minutes to a half hour non-stop until you think the mixture is turing into creamy, delicious ice cream!
I promise you won’t be dissapointed and if you like ice cream like I do, you won’t be able to resist!! It’s so easy to make, you must be careful not to eat it every day since it’s a million calories!
Recently I have been looking for new exercise classes to take. In the past I have taken trapeze, yoga, zumba, and spin. My favorite class to take has always been yoga, with that being said I looked into various different yoga classes. The most interesting class that popped up in my research was the Antigravity yoga classes. In this yoga practice you use a sling, made of the similar material acrobats from circ du soliel use. It is a great way to tone your body and more importantly it is fun! The OM factory, where I took this class is a great way to learn Antigravity yoga! They are not the only one’s that offer this class in NYC, other places such as Yoga Works also offers this class. I highly recommend Antigravity Yoga, it is a fun way to get into shape!!
Being a a huge lover of yoga, I am a fan of cute yoga attire. Yoga gear mainly consist of tight or form fitting clothing. Some great ways to look cute with out breaking your piggy bank are to go to Zappos and check out their fitness attire. They have a large selection to choose from, and you can mix and match for a great price! There are also some cute options to dress up your Yoga Mat, by purchasing a cute carrier bag. Amazon has lots of choices to choose from for a fraction of the cost! A higher priced, but super cute option is to go to OGorgeous. There you can find blinged out yoga bags.
