Queen Of Katwe


Last month when I flew out to LA we had a busy schedule Queen Of Katwe was first up on our itinerary. It’s always so exciting to go into that screening room and see a movie that has not yet been released.

Queen Of Katwe

I laughed and I cried and it really opened my eyes to the struggles that many people all over the world struggle with every day. Most days they don’t know what they are going to eat and if they will have a roof over our heads. This story will inspire anyone – that no matter where you came from, if you set your mind to it, you can make your dreams come true!


This is not something that was written from someones imagination – it is a story about someone’s real life experience. “Queen of Katwe” is based on the vibrant true story of a young girl from the streets of rural Uganda whose world rapidly changes when she is introduced to the game of chess, and, as a result of the support she receives from her family and community, is instilled with the confidence and determination she needs to pursue her dream of becoming an international chess champion.

This post and giveaway were made possible by iConnect and Pampers Easy Ups. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

 Make Potty Training Easier With Pampers Easy Ups + Giveaway #PampersEasyUps

Potty training is a huge milestone. It means no more changing diapers in the middle of a meal – or smelling a stinky diaper that you left on the changing table. Most kids don’t get it over-night. It’s a big change for them to go from wearing a diaper and going to the bathroom at that moment to realizing they have to pee or poop, telling someone, and then getting to the bathroom on-time.

Pampers Easy Ups is here to make the “underwear training” journey a little bit easier. Less accidents for you to clean up and more confidence for your toddler because they can easily take off their Easy Up and use the potty.

Your little one will think they are wearing underwear because Pampers Easy Ups look, fit and feel like real underwear and they still providing the leak protection you’d expect from Pampers.

Benefits of Pampers Easy Ups:

  • 360° stretchy waistband for an underwear-like fit
  • Super soft, like cotton underwear
  • The sides tear easily just in case it’s needed.

As a mom, I know I can trust Pampers. They are absorbent and comfortable for your child. The Easy Ups have an exclusive Extra Absorb Channels™, that provide excellent protection against leaks during the day and night. Plus it has Dual Leak-Guard Barriers™ around the legs help prevent the leaks that can happen when they are on the move. Read more…
