With cooler weather heading our way we have to get creative and figure out how to revamp the classic family pastimes to keep the family entertained. Movie Night is one of my favorites; it’s a great way to sit down as a family and spend some quality time together. With these awesome tips and ideas you are going to go down in history as the best movie night host ever. Or that will be what your kids will think of you, at the very least.

Inspired by Orville Redenbacher's Popcorn, I set out to create an outdoor movie experience—but indoors. I wanted to keep the theme as authentic as possible and I did not want to watch the movie on our TV. So I did some research and found out that many libraries rent out projectors. My local library does not, but my friend that lives a town over told me her library did, so she volunteered to rent the projector for me. (Check with your local library, you may be in luck!) You don't need a fancy screen, you can simply layer two white sheets and you are set to go. Once you set up your screen, you want to set some blankets on the floor; I added some pillows to make it cozy and extra comfortable. To add to the fun and excitement you can have your kids create DIY tickets beforehand, and even set up a pretend ticket booth, allowing them to enjoy a little pretend play before show time.  Last but not least, the popcorn! Take your Orville Redenbacher's Popcorn, put it in the microwave right before movie time and prepare everyone for the show. I really hope you guys enjoyed these quick and easy tips for creating the best "outdoor movie night" indoors.

Cape Blazer

Hat: H&M | Cape: Nasty Gal | Top: Zara | Boots: Aldo | Chain: Bebe | Lippie: Stila- aria (04)

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I attended the We all Grow NYC summit this past weekend. It was the perfect fall day so I decided to wear my favorite cape blazer from Nasty Gal because I'm just not over it and it makes any outfit look so chic. As soon as I decided to wear the cape blazer,  the rest of the outfit was a breeze to put together.  I got so many compliments on the blazer, it was definitely a hit.  
Speaking of hits, lets talk about  We All Grow Summit. It was an entire of day of inspiration and networking  and I had such a great time. The folks from Latina Bloggers Connect definitely went all out to make this event a successful one. If you are a blogger I highly recommend that you look into the We All Grow Summit in LA. It is much bigger than the one I attended here in NYC, but if the NYC one was a preview of what is to come I definitely do not want to miss out on the next one. I learned so much and I left the event super inspired and ready to implement so many of the tips and advice I received from the speakers/mentors. So get ready for some new and exciting changes on the blog and my social media and lets attend the summit together! let me know if you are going .
