Children, tweens, teens, and adults will be dressing up as a character from the movie Snow White and the Huntsman this Halloween.2 months ago
Below you'll find costumes & accessories to recreate the looks of Kristen Stewart as Snow White, Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman, and Charlize Theron as Queen Ravenaa.
Don't settle for 'close enough' costumes. These official costumes will be in stores this summer in plenty of time for Halloween costume parties and trick-or-treating. As new items are released I'll add them as well.
I can hardly keep up with all of the new dolls from Monster High. While I was doing my normal internet searching I came across a pic I hadn't seen yet and had to find out if they were custom dolls or the real thing. They are real and are a Target exclusive. I'm sure they will make there way to other locations.1 month ago
This set of Monster High dolls is new for 2012 and were made to go along with the new DVD titled Ghouls Rule!
The background for the movie is that the girls are going to celebrate Halloween this year instead of staying in like they usually do. They've decided they want to dress in over-the-top costumes highlighting their famous monster heritage. These dolls are wearing those costumes.1 month ago
Dance Class is a line of four dolls released in 2012. It includes Robecca Steam, Operetta, Lagoona Blue, and Howleen Wolf. Each one represents a style of dance. There are plenty of dance styles left for future dolls.
I wonder if this will be tied to a TV special or DVD, or if it will just be the theme of a Monster High episode. I'll keep an eye out for that info.
If you know a tween who's into dance and loves Monster High this is the perfect gift for them.1 month ago

Months before the first Hunger Games movie was out there was already buzz about the Capitol's fashion. A running theme of the capitol is to "look your best". There's even an official Capitol Couture fashion blog. I can't wait to see what Hunger Games costumes and merchandise are released over the next few years.4 months ago
My daughter was a Unicorn in 2003 when she was 2 years old. That was my choice. She was also a Unicorn in 2004 and 2005. That was her choice. I had to beg her to be something different in 2006. LOL
Her costumes aren't on sale anymore, but there are some really cute new Unicorn costumes out now. I'll showcase some of the best below for babies, toddlers, kids, and adults.
And I'll show off some super cute pictures of my kiddo from Halloweens past. :)2 months ago

If you join up directly through them you will earn a 20% commission on any sales made through your links.

This will be a directory of my pages here on Zujava arranged by category. I'm thinking of keeping track of my Zujava payouts here as well.
I'm getting this going now while I've not many leaves.
If you haven't met me yet, or I suppose even if you have, I wrote an introduction for the Zujava Blog.6 days ago
Pop Century Resort is one of Walt Disney World's "Value" hotels. It's theme is 20th century pop culture from the 1950s, '60s, '70s, '80s and '90s. Pop Century opened to visitors on December 14, 2003 and has been my favorite value resort at Disney since I first stayed there in 2006.* My family went back for our sixth time this year.3 months ago
Once Upon a Time premiered on ABC October 23, 2011. The setting is a fictional small town in Maine called Storybrooke. Everyone who lives there has been frozen in time, taken out of their fairy tales by a curse from the Evil Queen (yes, that Evil Queen) with no memory of their past lives. I know, sounds weird right?1 week ago

Below you'll find what you need to help do just that. I've scowered Zazzle to find the best Pro Obama bumper stickers, pins and yard signs. Some from the official store and others have been made by people like you.
You won't find any Anti-Romney items though. That's not how I roll. ;)

This Birthday Parade of young Disney Princesses is led by Prince Charming and his trusty steed. Start a new tradition to celebrate each birthday with a beloved character. You'll fill a special little girl's room with the magic of Disney for years to come.
Unlike most Precious Moments made of bisque porcelain, this collection is made of resin, so there's no need to worry about little hands holding these figurines.5 months ago
Bunheads premiered on ABC Family June 11, 2012. The setting is a fictional small coastal town in California called Paradise. Amy Sherman-Palladino, creator of Gilmore Girls, is the writer, director, and executive producer of the show.
FYI: A "bunhead" is a ballet dancer. But don't let the name of the show scare you away if you aren't interested in dance. So far there's been very little focus on dance, and more about the people and the town. Give it a try!3 weeks ago
Oz The Great and Powerful comes out March 8 2013, but I got to see it on February 24th at a special screening for Disney Vacation Club members at Epcot. It was perfect timing since I was already going to be at Walt Disney World, so I signed up when I heard about the opportunity.2 months ago
These are officially licensed Star Wars Bathrobes. Though some of the descriptions say 'for Men' really, any fan of Star Wars, from teens to adults, male or female, will love one of these hooded bath robes. I've found a few in kids sizes too!
Functional, soft, and cozy, any of these will make a great novelty gift.
Now the question is- Jedi or Sith?
Choose from Jedi, Yoda, Storm Trooper, and Darth Vader. Update: I've added R2-D2, Chewbacca, and Boba Fett Robes. Darth Maul is coming soon.3 weeks ago
Dance and TV have been together forever. When I was little it was Dance Fever and Solid Gold, decades later I was watching The Wade Robson Project. But now more than ever dance shows are a major part of prime time television. Every style is represented from Ballet to Hip-Hop, Contempory to Ballroom. We have competition shows, reality shows, documentaries, and even sitcoms with a dance focus. It doesn't matter how old you are, if you have an interest in dance there is a show for you.
Here are 10 TV series that any dancer or dance fan won't want to miss...1 day ago
I was looking for a free e-card yesterday (2/14/12) and while scanning through site after site I saw many cheesy, poorly made digital greetings. I'm sure you've seen them too. I was getting discouraged. There had to be something better!4 months ago
Whether you're a Good Witch, a Bad Witch, or not a Witch at all, you can dress up as a character from the movie Oz The Great and Powerful.
So far there are official costumes & accessories, and makeup to recreate the looks of Glinda (played by Michelle Williams), the Wicked Witch of the West, and China Girl.
I expect there will be more characters as we get closer to Halloween.2 months ago
Typically people think of red and pink for floral bouquets, especially around Valentine's Day. If your loved one favors any shade of purple these will make a welcomed gift. It could be for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, a birthday, or an anniversary, but really, you never need a reason to shower someone with flowers.
From soft hues to bold tones, there are a number of purple flower varieties, many more than I can feature here. Below you'll find Asters, Calla Lilies, Hydrangeas, Irises, Larkspur, Lisianthus, Orchids, Roses, and Tulips in beautiful arrangements.3 weeks ago

There are phones, a typewriter, turntables, a camera, and lamps. If you know something that should be on this page let me know in the guestbook!

If you're looking to bake your own, or hire someone to make them for you, these My Little Pony Friendship is Magic themed cakes and cupcakes should get your ideas going.
Pinterest and Flickr are great places to find inspiration for cakes and cupcakes. Blogs can be even better since they may take you through things step-by-step. I've linked to some of my favorite My Little Pony Friendship is Magic cake and cupcake photos below.
I've also brought together a few video tutorials, cake decorations, specialty cake pans, and MLP Fim licensed candles.2 weeks ago
I keep seeing this online, so much so that I had to look it up. Cards Against Humanity is a new party game that is getting quite the buzz. Facebook, Twitter, the Amazon Best Selling Products list, people are talking about it everywhere.
This is a card game for adults with a good sense of humor. Those easily offended need not play. This game is not for kids! It's best played with 5 to 10 players, but works for any number between 4 and 20.3 weeks ago
The first annual National Princess Week took place April 22-28, 2012.
Children across the country were invited to celebrate the sparkle and wonder of every princess real, aspiring, or imagined, to use their imaginations and dream big. It's a time for children to celebrate their individuality, and let their inner beauty shine.
The concept I love. I'm not a fan of the way they carried this out. Seeing some comments online I wasn't alone. What do you think? Share your opinion at the bottom of the page.2 months ago
I know it's not all that new, but the title track is my favorite song right now.

Build-A-Bear Workshop, in collaboration with Hasbro, launched a new line of My Little Pony plush toys April 1, 2013. Right now they offer two ponies, Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie, in various outfits and accessories. I'm sure there will be more to follow.

When you buy them online you can get just the basic plush or choose one all decked out in an adorable outfit and ready to go.1 month ago
Free My Little Pony Friendship is Magic patterns for fusible 5mm plastic beads. Fuse bead brands include Perler, Hama, Nabbi, and Pyssla, though I'm just going to be using Perler brand colors in descriptions below.
My daughter started using Perler beads in her Montessori days, about 7 years ago. She basically stuck to the patterns that came with various bead kits, or just filled in every spot of shaped peg boards to her liking. The older you get the more elaborate pieces you can create. They aren't just for little kids!6 days ago
Monster High 13 Wishes will be the third CG animated, feature-length, Monster High film to come out on DVD. It will also be a TV special airing sometime in 2013.2 days ago
Sara Bareilles is my favorite contemporary singer-songwriter writer.
You know the song "Hook" by Blues Traveler? With the line "It doesn't matter what I say so long as I sing with inflection" Sara is the antithesis of that lyric. Of the whole song really. Every word that she writes, every word that she sings tells a story. It paints a picture. It makes you think. Her beautiful words are matched by her beautiful voice.12 hours ago

These aren't your typical red and pink floral bouquets. If your loved one favors any shade of orange these will make a thoughtful gift. Perhaps you're looking for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, a birthday, or an anniversary, but really, you never need a reason to give someone flowers.
From pale hues to bright tones, there are a number of orange flower varieties, many more than I can feature here. Below you'll find Birds of Paradise, Gerberas, Gladiolus, Lilies, Orchids, and Roses in beautiful arrangements.
My daughter is crazy about meerkats. I'm not even sure where the obsession came from, but now she's got me loving them too. She also taught me how to spell meerkat. I thought it was meercat. Who knew?
If you love meerkats too any of these calendars will be a great addition to your home/room/office/studio wherever you want to add a little cuteness. Who couldn't use some meerkat photos to cheer them up? And, Bonus! You can organize you life at the same time. Win-win.

One of my favorite TV shows is getting a spinoff. Once Upon a Time in Wonderland has been added to the ABC Fall 2013 lineup. It will be airing on Thursdays at 8:00 pm Eastern.
The first episode of Wonderland will actually start in Storybrooke, the enchanted town in Once Upon a Time. From the trailer it looks like there will be a portal in Granny's Diner. Each show will have their own separate story lines but there will be some crossovers.11 hours ago
