Giving Back on Thanksgives

To give back on Thanksgives, TSC has teamed up with Sevenly to promote autism research.

Sevenly’s mission is to harness the power of art & community to build sustainable awareness & fund movements that support charities in their efforts to change the world. They also support charities everywhere to gain capital & awareness to the world’s greatest causes.

I love that they take a deeper look into why certain charities aren’t continuing to grow; there’s a lack of awareness, funding, & following.

So take a minute from your turkey/champagne/cranberry sauce-filled day & check out their rad site! XO.

Love.L

Concessions

Movie Theatre Candy

A smart choice at the movies

My boyfriend, Michael, has a slight obsession with Harry Potter. This may sound odd, as he is a twenty four year-old man, but he takes the film series VERY seriously. And this Sunday past, he was determined to create a perfect movie date. He booked the tickets online, excitedly recanted previous Harry Potter plot lines and discussed [ thoroughly ] the importance of attaining the perfect IMAX seats. My mind was focused on the fact that I had already used my “cheat day” of the week and wanted to make smart choices, food-wise – lower-calorie options that attempted to be healthier…

Harry Potter

The famous Harry!

When we got to the theater [ forty-five minutes early, per Michael’s request, of course ], we immediately went to the concession stand counter. Instead of a small popcorn, I requested the kid’s popcorn with no butter or salt, the mini Diet Coke soda [ which, I handed off to Michael, as Aspartame is the devil ] and ended up throwing away the gummy snacks that come along with the kid’s meal.  I was craving some candy too, so I picked out Raisinets. When I got into the theater, I sprinkled about twelve Raisinets on kid’s popcorn. It was the perfect light salt/light sweet mix. It satisfied me completely, while Michael was immersed in his fantasy world movie and happily munched on a medium popcorn and my leftover Raisinets. It is safe to say, Harry Potter was a delicious success.
