Feeling great about life and yourself is something we all ultimately aspire to achieve.  In the upcoming film, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot by Paramount Pictures, Tina Fey is an unhappy journalist sent to Afghanistan to cover the war. Through her journey she does a complete 180 degree change with her life for the better by changing her outlook on life and assimilating to a whole new world. To celebrate this film I have created a quick list of ways to achieve happiness, health and self-love.

  1. Exercise – With as little as 30 minutes a day, you can be on your way to a healthier and happier you! Studies show that exercise not only do you better, but your mind is clearer which enables you to accomplish  more.
  2. Find a partner and exercise together – Grabbing your bud and hitting the gym is not only fun to catch up, but it also keeps you committed to a routine.
  3. Exercise helps you feel better about yourself! Once you get into a routine, you will begin to see a change in your appearance.
  4. Have you ever felt stressed or anxious? If so, next time it happens just take a deep breath and close your eyes! Visualize everything working out. Not only will this calm you down, but you’ll feel extremely positive.
  5. Smile! The power of a smile is infinite. You’ll feel better and your smile will help others feel better too.
  6. Take time every day to write 5 things you are thankful for! Gratitude opens the door to more blessings and improves your physical and psychological health.
  7. Take a look in the mirror every morning and give yourself a positive pep talk with a few positive mantras. Anything from, “I am great” to “Today will be amazing” works! Figure out which mantras work best for you and stick to it.
  8. Meditation is key! I’m sure you’ve heard about meditation in the past few years, right? Well it works! Take a few minutes each morning to zone out and relax. There are several mediation apps and books available to help you get started.
  9. Do not compare yourself to others! We are all different and that’s what makes you unique. That is your very own super power! Embrace you!
  10. Challenge yourself to a new workout routine! Nowadays there’s a variety of fun and exciting exercise routines. From Body Beast, Insanity, Zumba to running clubs. Find what works best for you and give it a go.

Make sure to catch Tina Fey’s transformation in Whiskey Tango Foxtrot on March 4!

One Sheet (1)

Creo que todos en algún momento hemos sido victimas de entrar en la rutina y lo monótono que puede ser una relación amorosa. No es que sea difícil ser espontaneo o hacer cosas diferentes pero simplemente la rutina del trabajo y cosas por hacer en casa nos dejan rendidos o a veces con muy poco tiempo y energía para ser creativos para realizar nuevas experiencias.

Pero caer en la misma rutina a veces nos puede costar hasta el hermoso matrimonio que se ha construido y muchas veces es lo causante a que existan tantos divorcios, en mi humilde opinión, porque se va perdiendo la gran chispa del amor.

Gracias a Latinas Bloggers Connect (LBC) pude disfrutar de mi sábado y reír como nunca antes. Al final de la película Sandra Echeverría nos deleitó con su presencia y nos habló detalles de la película y cosas que pasaron “behind the scenes” que no había contado. (Risas)

Disfrute mucho de la charla de Sandra y creo que muchos de los otros bloggers que participaron estan de acuerdo conmigo.

En Busco Novio para mi Mujer, Sandra Echeverría incursiona como productora cinematográfica después de haber participado en algunos doblajes (El Libro de la Vida (2014) y El Profeta (2016)) y haber compartido el set con Salma Hayek en la película Salvajes (2012) de Oliver Stone. Por su parte, Arath de la Torre vuelve como protagonista a la pantalla grande después de 15 años (Inspiración, 2001), compartiendo créditos con Mónica Huarte (Cansada de Besar Sapos, 2006), Mauricio Isaac (XY, 2009, 2012) y Yago Muñoz (Miss XV, 2012).

De la mano de Pantelion Films, la casa productora detrás de la película mexicana más taquillera de la historia, No se Aceptan Devoluciones (2013), de Eugenio Derbez, llega Busco Novio para mi Mujer. Bajo la dirección de Enrique Begné, Sandra Echeverría y Arath de la Torre protagonizan esta adaptación de la cinta argentina Un Novio para mi Mujer (2008), de Juan Taratuto, la cual tuvo tanto éxito que inspiró otros dos refritos en Italia y Corea del Sur.

El poder de la voz latina es inmensa entonces todos vamos a verla el 19 de febrero en una sala de cine cerca de tu casa. Si te gustaría ver más películas en español en las salas de teatro aquí en Estados Unidos te recomiendo apoyar esta cinta cual saldrá en más de 350 cines para que tengamos acceso a más películas en español.

Ya sea que vayas solo o acompañado, esta cinta te hará pasar un muy buen rato y, en una de esas, te hará pensar dos veces antes de dejar ir lo que has ganado con tanto esfuerzo y dedicacion.

Que te diviertas.

Alvin, Simon and Theodore hit the road for another crazy adventure in ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS: THE ROAD CHIP, opening THIS FRIDAY DECEMBER 18th. 

These classic characters are sure to delight new fans and old.

Through a series of misunderstandings, Alvin, Simon and Theodore come to believe that Dave is going to propose to his new girlfriend in Miami and dump them. They have three days to get to him and stop the proposal, saving themselves not only from losing Dave but possibly from gaining a terrible stepbrother – in ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS: THE ROAD CHIP. The new film is a mix of classic Chipmunk elements – including mischievous humor and heartwarming moments – that fans love about the franchise.

In 2007, ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS, a global phenomenon to generations of fans, became a live action/CGI motion picture event with a contemporary comic sensibility.  In the holiday season blockbuster, which grossed over $350 million worldwide, songwriter Dave Seville transformed singing chipmunks Alvin, Simon and Theodore into pop sensations — while the out-of-control trio laid waste to Dave’s home, wreaked havoc on his career, and turned Dave’s once-orderly life upside-down.

Before you could say, “Alvinnnnn!!!” talks began about a new ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS movie.  Not content to rest on their laurels, the ‘Munks came up with yet another “first”: a “Squeakquel,” in which Alvin, Simon and Theodore finally meet their match – and maybe more – in the newly arrived female trio, The Chipettes.  Released in 2009, ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS: THE SQUEAKQUEL grossed over $440 million worldwide.

Two years later, the Munks unleashed ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS: CHIPWRECKED, in which the vacationing Chipmunks and Chipettes turn a luxury cruise liner into their personal playground, until they become ‘chipwrecked’ on a remote island.  As the ‘Munks and Chipettes scheme to find their way home, they accidentally discover their new turf is not as deserted as it seems.  CHIPWRECKED came ashore with over $340 million globally.

The_Road_Chip_Poster_2

Now, it’s time for the boys to hit the road in their biggest journey yet, as they embark on a “road chip” across the U.S. During their storied misadventures, Alvin, Simon and Theodore have always had to solve problems they’ve created themselves! But during their road chip, and for the first time, they’re on a mission to keep their family together.

Starring: Jason Lee, Tony Hale, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Josh Green, Justin Long, Matthew Gray Gubler, Jesse McCartney, Kaley Cuoco, Anna Faris, Christina Applegate

Hotel Good Luck is a story that aims to reconcile ourselves with life, through reconciling us with death.  It is a play about love in its different ways. It’s a play about the abandon, the need of dropping, and above all the need of accepting that we are only here for a short while, in passing, and that’s why we need to be the very best we can be.

Hotel Good Luck builds up a very particular universe full of absurd situations and ironies, as well as a lot of humor, or rather said it builds up several parallel universes, occurring over and over.

Directed by Alejandro Ricano, and starring Luis Gerardo Mendez and Pablo Chemor, Good Luck Hotel comes to Hollywood for 3 performances only, in Spanish, so don’t miss this opportunity to see Mexico’s brightest talent live on stage at The Montalban in Hollywood, CA (1615 N. Vine St.)

AVivirLA had the opportunity to be part of a special screening for the movie The Last Witch Hunter coming out in theaters on Friday, October 23rd. I won’t spoil the movie, but it was great for all supernatural movie-goers.

Additionally, I received some pretty exciting swag from my friends over at Allied Hispanic! Thank you.

In the fantasy film Vin Diesel’s character deals with death. He’s been cursed with immortality by the Witch Queen, which means he isn’t able to reunite with his loved ones in the afterlife.

He has the job of coming between the covens of New York City and their goal to destroy humanity by way of a horrific plague. In order to accomplish this, he must partner up with a beautiful female witch – a ‘dream walker’ named Chloe – played by Rose Leslie.

The Last Witch Hunter- poster 1

Others that are part of the cast are Elijah Wood, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Julie Engelbrecht, and Michael Caine. The movie was directed by Breck Eisner.

The modern world holds many secrets, but the most astounding secret of all is that witches still live amongst us; vicious supernatural creatures intent on unleashing the Black Death upon the world. Armies of witch hunters battled the unnatural enemy across the globe for centuries, including KAULDER, a valiant warrior who managed to slay the all-powerful QUEEN WITCH, decimating her followers in the process.

In the moments right before her death, the QUEEN curses KAULDER with her own immortality, forever separating him from his beloved wife and daughter in the afterlife. Today KAULDER is the only one of his kind remaining, and has spent centuries hunting down rogue witches, all the while yearning for his long-lost loved ones. However, unbeknownst to KAULDER, the QUEEN WITCH is resurrected and seeks revenge on her killer causing an epic battle that will determine the survival of the human race.

Don’t forget to go check out all the supernatural fun on the big screen this weekend starting on October 23rd. Here’s the movie trailer to get you in the mood and especially a great movie for this Halloween:

A much anticipated prequel to the unprecedented worldwide blockbusters Despicable Me and the beloved sequel Despicable Me 2, Minions is an immensely entertaining film for all audiences called “inventive and hilarious” by Julian Roman, Movieweb.com.  The Blu-ray Combo Pack and Digital HD also come with three all-new mini-movies and even more Minions everyone will want to watch again and again especially during the busy holiday travel season.

The story of Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Minions begins at the dawn of time. Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters.  Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these masters—from T. rex to Napoleon—the Minions find themselves without someone to serve and fall into a deep depression. But one Minion named Kevin has a plan, and he—alongside teenage rebel Stuart and lovable little Bob—ventures out into the world to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow. The trio embark upon a thrilling journey that ultimately leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (Academy Award®-winner Sandra Bullock), the world’s first-ever female super-villain.  They travel from frigid Antarctica to 1960s New York City, ending in ‘mod’ London, where they must face their biggest challenge to date: saving all of Minionkind…from annihilation.

Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side, Gravity) heads up an all-star voice cast including Golden Globe and recent Emmy Award®-winner Jon Hamm (“Mad Men,” Bridesmaids), Academy Award-nominee Michael Keaton (Birdman: (Or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance, Toy Story 3), seven-time Emmy Award-winner Allison Janney (“The West Wing,” “Masters of Sex,” “Mom”), Academy Award-nominee Steve Coogan (Despicable Me 2,Philomena), BAFTA Award-winner Jennifer Saunders (“Absolutely Fabulous,” Shrek 2), and Academy Award-winner Geoffrey Rush (The King’s Speech, Pirates of the Caribbean series).  The inimitable voices of theMinions are again voiced by Academy Award-nominee Pierre Coffin (Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2) who co-directs with Kyle Balda (Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax). Minions is produced by Illumination Entertainment CEO and founder Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy. Brian Lynch wrote the screenplay, and Chris Renaud serves as executive producer of the film.
