Let me make this Crystal 💎Clear…L❤️VE in it’s truest form…only sees the heart…& the “eyes” are the window to the soul…


Discover  #Beauty & #Love in these modern days… in a story old as time….

I BELIEVE in the power of L❤️VE… I always have… I’m a true ROMANTIC at heart. 🌹

Seeing Disney’s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST touched my heart in the most 💕WONDERFUL 💕 way! It awakened the notion that love at any stage… at any age..no matter how.you.look. is possible…. #Yes ❣️

😔 Sadly enough… I’d forgotten about that… and it took an animated film to ✨awaken my spirit✨ and remind me… (sigh)

I was ABSOLUTELY ENCHANTED watching BEAUTY & THE BEAST!

 I watched it in IMAX 3-D… and the ✨magic✨ of that experience was truly INCREDIBLE!!!! If you have the opportunity to see it in this form… DO IT!!!!!

It appears that a lot of people made it to the box office opening weekend… The movie made over $100 million 💵💵💵💵 right away… ((( and BELIEVE me…. the film is worth every cent! -plus some- with whatever it will earn in the future! 

At the writing of this blog 3/25/2017 –the global total of ticket sales passed the $500 million milestone!!!!! #JustWow!!!! 

This film is putting Emma Watson on track to being one of the highest paid actresses… #WowAgain!!!!

*** That DISNEY 🏰 MAGIC is UNSTOPPABLE!!!! ****

Disney’s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is a live-action adaptation of the studio’s animated classic about the fantastic journey of  “Belle,” 

(Emma Watson), a bright, beautiful and independent young woman, is taken prisoner by a beast (Dan Stevens) in his castle.



Let me say…the role of BELLE is beautifully played by Emma Watson... She demonstrates an authentic “sweetness… ” with enough of a “strong will” –to make her both charming… and respectable… 

Belle is such a delightful character for young girls to see… A beautiful young female who LOVES to read!!! ****Yay!!!!**** 🎉  

She is an independent spirit… who marches to the beat of her own drum… even when others in her village think… she’s a “little different.” 

BELLE is true to herself… gentle enough to care for others… but strong enough… not to conform to the “cookie cutter” image… of  what seemed to be “ideal” in the eyes of “the ring leaders”  in town.

Emma Watson is great for portraying nice…sweet characters… who are smart.. and fiesty!  She rose to prominence after landing her first professional acting role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter film series… ((( Huge fan of that series as well! 😉)))

👉🏽…Back to the 2017… Beauty and the Beast… masterpiece…

After a series of events… Belle becomes a prisoner to the Beast… in a cold and scary castle…( Oooo…. 😖)

Despite her fears…she befriends the castle’s staff… A “lively” bunch of actors who bring ZEST… and excitement to the delightful cast of characters…




Listed below…👇🏾is a complete list of Beauty & the Beast Cast Members.  Each and every one of them✨ “SHINE” ✨so exquisitely in this film!  

They are zany and fun… when necessary… and serious… or sensible enough to be in touch with the human spirit… in their own special way! “🤗”

A-hem….”. 👉🏽 Back to ensemble cast of characters…. existing in the cold… and crumbling castle.. where the BEAST lived under a spell….

With the gentle prodding…of the  castle staff…Belle takes time to get to know the Beast…learning  to look beyond his hideous exterior… 

Slowly… but surely… this allows her to recognize the kind heart ❤️ and soul of a true prince that hides on the inside…

Eventually…you could see the hurt… the love… and kindness in the eyes of the creature… those distinct… blue eyes…

Ahhh- ha! I knew… there was something “strangely familiar about the actor, (Dan Stevens), who portrayed “Beast.” and then..by golly.. I GOT IT! 

This is the actor… who portrayed Matthew Crawley in the #PBS #Masterpiece Classic drama series…Downton Abbey!” Oooo… that’s one of **MY FAVORITE*** DRAMATIC TV series…. OF ALL TIME!!!! (((( #For Real!!! )))) #HonestToGoodness!!! Mr. Fellows..#PleaseGiveUsADowntonAbbeyMovie!!!!

✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨

Ahhh… yesSs!!! There were so MANY priceless moments I discovered in this movie! 

✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨

The cast is extremely DIVERSE… and honestly reflects the REAL WORLD 🌎 in which we live! 

*** #HoORayForThat!!!!****

This is ALWAYS a great thing for people of ALL AGES…. and walks of life to see…on the BIG SCREEN!!! “🙌🏾”

***** BRAVO!!!! 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾*****

Seeing this movie made me #Dream! #Swoon! and #cry!  tears of understanding the pain of being misunderstood… and out of touch… 😥 tears of understanding… for those hurting… and the actions… and reactions of wounded souls… 😢and of course….😡 Great disappointment…at mean spirited folks… and the angry villagers… anxious to take out their frustrations… and gang up on others… without any CLEAR understanding… and…. ohhh… those “Happy tears!!!” precious 😭 liquid drops of  relief:  Joy and delight!!! 😂

For example… The scene beginning with Beast realizing BELLE has accepted his invitation…to a private ball… 

((( oOohhhh!!!!!))) but….

((( ahhhhh . those first date jitters..)) 

and then….the fantasy sequence… of BELLE getting carefully dressed… –and finally– that romantic ballroom dance..

✨✨✨SUPERB!!!✨✨✨ It was ALL a glorious experience indeed! 


Woooo….(((Exhales….)) 😚 Bill Condon does a **masterful***job of directing this film… 

The pacing and timing of everything is PERFECT! It doesn’t rush us through this fantasy…

It ✨brilliantly✨ allows  us to feel every ounce of emotion necessary… to accurately bring this FAIRY TALE to Life!

In a time where people are so critical about how people look… and how the tiniest flaws can rob people of a real chance at love… this movie couldn’t have been released at a BETTER time….

While this movie truly SHINES… as good as GOLD... I hope one lesson everyone will learn… is to stop chasing glitter… and take time to recognize TRUE GOLD... when it is within your reach! Don’t forget… Diamonds start off as lumps of coal… until they are polished… and refined…

 Too often… people loose out on the perfect partners… chasing fools gold…. They let go off polished diamonds… trying to gather as many stones as possible… (Enough metaphors… you get the picture! 😉)

*** BEAUTY 🌹*** is in the EYE of the beholder…

You know….another reason why I LOVE 💝FAIRY TALES 📚 so much… is because they teach us life lessons… in such colorful 💛💜💚💙💛❤️ and simple 💓ways…

Never stop believing in TRUE LOVE! *{ note to self… ✍🏽} It’s out there… just be willing to go on the journey…. and…keep your heart open.. The right connection… can be ✨MAGICAL!✨

(((NOTE:))  I am a HUGE FAN for ANYTHING DISNEY🏰 ‼️‼️‼️

… and I have been my entire life! 

I have had complete collections of Disney BOOKS, and Musical ALBUMS… with the illustrated stories… collectibles 

***THE WHOLE BIT!***and let’s not even get into how thrilled I am to visit DISNEYLAND & DISNEYWORLD— to see all my favorite characters… including BEAUTY & THE BEAST and company… in those WONDERFUL PARADES!!!! 🎉🎉🎉🎉 Yep! even now…… 

I’ll ~NEVER~ get too old… to stop loving all those wonderful things created by WALT DISNEY!!! I hope you… and your family cherish these things too…

 I’ve seen ~EVERY~ MOVIE from WALT DISNEY STUDIOS!!! 

The careful attention to DETAIL… makes every movie a rare GEM!!! and I… like so many people all over the world…🌎 treasure that authentic “DISNEY STYLE!!!”

I am most PROUD about the vast DIVERSITY of Disney Princesses…💝✨✨✨👸👸🏽👸👸🏻👸🏼👸🏿✨✨✨

This warms my heart the most… knowing that –NOW– EVERY child can make a connection… (pause…) 😌😊😂😭 and **that***  is so BEAUTIFUL to me……” 😍 “

All of us… can learn something about the cultures these characters come from… 

We also get to see a little bit of OURSELVES in each one❣️

Every story is a teaching moment:

❤️ There are all kinds of people in the world… and we must appreciate… and value differences… and try and understand thise things that are different… and accept people as they are… 

There is SOMETHING special…. about ALL OF US! 👍🏽

❤️ “Everyone” is BLESSED with a special gift… some people find it naturally… others have to dig deep to make those discoveries… and some…need more patience…encouragement…. and understanding…on their path…in life… ( the highs…… and the lows..)

❤️ With the HEROS…. “SHE” -RO’s and villains…. children can learn about GOOD & EVIL in the world as well… 

❤️ Every day is not lollipops 🍭 and rainbows 🌈 … There comes a time when we ALL have to have courage… and be brave!!! 

❤️ Sometimes… we have to invent… a song to sing… when the little birdies… chipmunks and other creatures aren’t coming out of the wood works… “singing…🎶🎵🎶

❤️ There is goodness… and beauty all around us… you just have to WANT to see it…

❤️ Without ☔️ rain… we would not have rainbows!!! 🌈 

❤️ When things seem most bleak… God… and the universe will conspire to help you… and maybe even send a helper… or a “lively” bunch of characters… to help you find your way… and on that note…

❤️ “Fairy Godmother’s” exist! 🎇 Don’t you BELIEVE ⁉️

There are soooo many valuable lessons to be learned in Fairytales… review some more of these tales… and pay close attention! I could go on…. and on… but I’ll stop with one more…

**The GOLDEN 🔶 RULE: ***  “Treat others… as you wish to be treated… ” 

It costs 0.00 to be a decent person…

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST touches on nearly every one of these themes… plus more!

 I honestly **APPRECIATE**  all the thought… time and efforts.. of the “imagineers” writers…composers… singers…dancers..producers… costumers… make up & hair artists… set designers… prop people…illustrators… voice-over actors…cast/ crew members… ***EVERYBODY*** who helps us DREAM again! Smile! 😃… and most make us ✨✨BELIEVE ✨✨ that when we wish upon a  STAR 🌟DREAMS… REALLY DO COME TRUE!!!! 🌠



The End……
