Let’s Discuss The New AMC Stubs Premiere Program!

amc-stubs-card-premiere

I got an email, a couple of weeks ago, informing that my existing AMC Stubs membership was about to be upgraded to AMC Stubs Premiere. I skimmed the email, but really didn’t read all that much into it.

For the past couple of years, I’ve been enjoying AMC Stubs because it waives fees from every transaction, and I get a free movie ticket after every 10 visits. There have also been some advanced screening opportunities that I’ve enjoyed. All in all, if you went to the movies once per month, you made your $12/yr investment back. That was worth it to me.

Ole Henriksen PowerBright Means Business


Thanks to the wonderful folks over at Influenster, I got a VoxBox full of Ole Henriksen goodies to try out last week.

The main product was Ole’s 3-step PowerBright System. It is supposed to exfoliate, brighten, and add glow to your skin. Influenster also included the popular Sheer Transformation moisturizer, the Truth Serum collagen booster (which I’ve actually been wanting to try for about a year now), as well as a professional cleaning sponge.

Now the amount of product we Influenster/VoxBox users received was enough for one treatment, although I think I can get two treatments out of my sample.

Serena Williams Is Feeling 22…

I know I’m probably the 49974729596734th person to use that line, in the past 48 hours, but I don’t care! My girl, Serena Williams, has finally won her 22nd Grand Slam title! She had been super close over the past 3 slams, but it appeared the pressure had really gotten to her. She adjusted her game and her mindset for Wimbledon and voila, she successfully defended her title from last year to equal the great Stefi Graf in Grand Slam Championships!

And as if that wasn’t enough, three hours after raising the Venus Rosewater Dish, Serena returned to Centre Court, with her sister Venus, and won the doubles title as well. Everything is coming up Williams Sisters!

I’m so proud of Rena. I hope this win took some of the anxiety and pressure off of her, so she can get back to how she was playing in late 2014 and most of 2015. She was carefree and enjoying the sport. And with the Olympics coming up, that’ll be needed more than ever.

Anyway, I just wanted to take time to post my excitement for Serena and Venus. My family and I are going to London next year, and we are timing it so that we can hopefully catch a match or two at the All England Club. In doing so, we would be crossing a key event off our Bucket Lists!

Starting To Get Olympic Fever!

016_Summer_Olympics_logo.svg

Anyone who knows me knows that I am obsessed with the Summer Olympic Games. It’s almost like I retreat into a bunker for 2 weeks, and I shun all human interaction until the Olympics are over. Your girl is dialed allllll the way in, y’all!

But my excitement has been a little tempered this year. I’ve never been a fan of the IOC. They are corrupt and stay awarding the games to host cities who have no business hosting an Olympics. That issue aside, the issue with the Zika virus (and high profiles athletes dropping out), as well as the contamination in the water (what about the open water swimmers?!), and the security situation are all leaving a sour taste in my mouth.

I want to be my usual excited self for the Games, but I really am concerned for the safety and well-being of the world’s athletes. At this point all I can do is pray all will be well and the Olympics will go off without incident.

So, I’m easing my way back into things with some of Olympic Trials taking place this weekend. As I type this, I’m watching the Women’s Gymnastics Trials. And, come Sunday, I will be reunited with Swimming as their Trials get underway.

GO USA!

Site Cleansing Update

I think I’ve finally cleansed the site of the malware that was plaguing its stay on the previous server. Well, for now, at least. Hackers and spam bots are persistent and always evolving. So, my site is no longer flagged by Google. That’s good!

I’ve also made the decision to move all my running podcasts off the site. I don’t know if the ability to download them, using a WordPress plugin, contributed to the attack of my site, but it certainly can’t hurt to move them. I’m setting my sights on a free download site. (Recommendations are welcome!)

So that’s the Monday update. Thanks for bearing with me!

ETA: The temporary link to all my podcasts (until I re-link them on their corresponding pages) is available on my Facebook page!

Trying To Clean This Place Up!

My previous webhosting server has been continuously attacked by hackers and spammers throughout the past 2 years. With my term almost up with that company, I decided it was time to move to new digs. So, that’s what I’ve been doing the past few days!

I’m just settling in, but I sincerely hope this experience is much better than what I just went through. Here’s to the future!

(And yes, I’m still going to work on fixing links, downloads, and anything else I can that has been broken on the site. Please be patient with me.)
