The DOVEKEEPERS Special Four Hour Event Coming To CBS March 31- April 1st!!!

Disclosure: This post sponsored by Role Mommy Writer's Network, however all thoughts and opinions are my own.
I'm really excited to tell you guys about a special four hour event that's coming to CBS next week! It's called THE DOVEKEEPERS and it's from executive producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett. I can't wait for this to come on, it also stars Cote De Pablo, who is one of my favorite actresses! Here's some more info:

THE DOVEKEEPERS, a four-hour limited event series from executive producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett, will be broadcast Tuesday, March 31 and Wednesday, April 1, 2015 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT). 

The project stars Cote de Pablo, Rachel Brosnahan and Kathryn Prescott in the title dovekeeper roles, Sam Neill as first-century Jewish scholar and historian Josephus, and Diego Boneta as a star warrior of the Jewish army at Masada. The series is based on Alice Hoffman’s bestselling, critically acclaimed historical novel about a group of extraordinary women whose lives intersect in a fight for survival at the siege of Masada. 

Set in ancient Israel, THE DOVEKEEPERS is based on the true events at Masada in 70 C.E. After being forced out of their home in Jerusalem by the Romans, 900 Jews were ensconced in a fortress at Masada, a mountain in the Judean desert. Besieged at Masada, the Jews held out for months against the vast Roman armies. The project will recount the events from the perspective of a few extraordinary women who arrive at Masada with unique backstories, but a common bond for survival. Additionally, these women, who work together daily as dovekeepers, are all concealing substantial secrets.

Hoffman’s novel was published in 2011 by Scribner, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, earning the New York Times’ bestseller status and widespread critical acclaim, including being hailed by Nobel laureate Toni Morrison as “a major contribution to 21st century literature.”

THE DOVEKEEPERS will be brought to television from executive producers Roma Downey and multiple Emmy Award winner Mark Burnett (SURVIVOR, “The Voice”), the production team behind the Emmy-nominated 10-hour miniseries “The Bible,” which scored big ratings for the History Channel in March 2013, and the feature “Son of God.”

Frank Siracusa, John Weber and Yves Simoneau also serve as executive producers, with Simoneau directing. Ann Peacock adapted the novel for the screen.

THE DOVEKEEPERS is the first project from CBS Entertainment and CBS Television Studios’ Limited Series and Event Programming unit. It is a co-production between CBS Television Studios and LightWorkers Media, a division of United Artists Media Group.

I'm telling you guys, you are going to love this! I had the chance to check out the novel and also to preview the movie (should I call it a movie? I don't know!) and it is super! It is really a great story, and really gets you caught up in the story right away! Check out this video below, and make sure to set your DVR because you are not going to want to miss this!

Fit Tea #PostNatalFatBurner Is A Great Way To Lose The Baby Weight!

Losing weight after having a baby is certainly not as easy as I thought it would be. Now, two babies and almost 9 years later, I am still struggling to lose the "baby weight" and I seriously doubt my body will ever come close to being the same again. It seems that no matter how hard I try, I just can't get the baby weight off. However, 2015 is my year and I am going to make it happen. I'm really taking my health seriously now. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that I am approaching 30, but things are just really different for me now. I'm working on eating healthy, exercising more, and trying to get on top of things. Life is so crazy, and I know it's the same way for everyone, not just me, but this is something I have to do on my own. Now is the time.

If you are a mom who is struggling to lose your baby weight like I am, you should consider Fit Tea's PostNatal FatBurner. It's a great herbal option for women who are looking to get rid of stubborn baby fat. The PostNatal FatBurner uses only 100% natural ingredients.It's a really great option for busy new moms who have a hard time getting rid of stubborn baby weight. It is even safe to use while breastfeeding, but of course, make sure to talk to your doctor before taking any herbal supplement. There are no harmful chemicals or stimulants either, so this supplement is completely safe! Give it a try if you are like me and trying to knock off those extra few pounds.

Lyft: Travel Has Never been More Convenient or Cheaper Than This!


To use Lyft, all you have to do is simply download their app and use it to find a driver who is going in the direction of your destination. You fix the time of the pickup and wait for a few minutes for the car to arrive. Once you have been ferried to where you want to go, the app will automatically charge your card for the travel. It is really as simple as that!


The Lyft Advantage

With Lyft, not only will you be saving on transportation but you may even make a few friends along the way. If that isn't good enough, the savings offered by Lyft are significant. For instance, with regular Lyft rideshare, you would save as much as 50% on travel while Lyft Line offers even greater benefits by reducing the cost of travel further. So, a journey of about 25 minutes in San Francisco would cost you a mere $15-$16. Compare this with taxi fares which can go upward of $35.

Also, unlike other services which just give you an estimate and taxi drivers who shock you with exorbitant fares, when using Lyft rideshare, you will be able to better plan your monthly transportation expenditure. Moreover, since the pickup and drops are right outside your door, you will spend less time on travel.

The best part of Lyft is that there is a feedback system that works both ways. So, if a driver and a passenger rate each other at 3, they will never be paired with each other again. What's more is that drivers who let their rating drop to 4.6 out of 5 are no longer allowed to ply passengers for the service.


Lyft for families and parents

If you are traveling with young kids in tow, the prospect of using public transportation can be utterly daunting. Imagine making your way into the train through the hordes of passengers while you desperately clutch on to your toddlers. Not everybody can afford regular cab travel, particularly over long distances and to be considered for car pooling, you would have to be in a position to return the favor.

Now, pitch these options against Lyft; you could hail a vehicle within a matter of minutes using just your smart phone. You will consistently be paying lower than the fare charged by regular cabs and yet, you would be traveling comfortably in the backseat of a well maintained car with your children tucked safely at your sides.


Lyft for professionals and students

As a busy professional with time constraints, trying to find a parking spot on the bustling streets of New York or Denver can be harrowing. Also, when you need to jump from one meeting to another, some alone time in the back seat of a car will give you the precious few minutes that you need to better prepare yourself.. With Lyft, you get all of this. You only have to use the Lyft app to have the vehicle waiting for you outside the building.

As far as college students are concerned, saving money is a prospect that looms large. If you use Lyft, not only will you be spending half of what you normally do for traveling to and from your university, but also you could avail further discounts by riding along with your friends.

The best part is that for a limited time, Lyft is allowing you to try out their service for free and this is truly a no strings attached scheme. You just use the Lyft credit code and give the service a shot.
