I don't know about you all, but I have moments when I'm feeling nostalgic, ready to watch all the shows and movies that brought me so much joy in childhood.

Streaming platforms and apps have proven to be helpful, but for some of us whose favorite shows or films from the past are only available on DVD or VCR ( I happen to have both still), it can be challenging to watch certain things. For instance, watching the 1997 Rodgers and Hammerstein's made-for-TV Cinderella movie on YouTube despite the low quality would have to suffice, unfortunately.


But no need to worry.

On Friday, February 12, this will no longer be the case. Why is that? This iconic film starring Brandy and Whitney Houston ( Houston also happened to produce the movie) is finally coming to Disney+. I could not contain my excitement!

Let's take a little trip through memory lane to give appreciation for this film.

Brandy not only did a fantastic job portraying a lovely and caring princess, the cast was also very diverse and inclusive, which is admirable. It's hard not to recognize a magical world that represented all aspects of the representation within the world and that there is so much potential to follow your dreams and make them a reality.

It's hard to forget that both Brandy and the late Whitney Houston have some of the most angelic voices ever to grace the music industry.

All in all, it is thrilling that Disney+ is releasing the movie for the many of us who had fond memories of the chic and goddess energy of Fairy Godmother ( portrayed by Houston), the kindness of Cinderella, or Queen Constantina ( portrayed by Whoopi Goldberg).

It's equally as remarkable for the new generation to experience the wonders as well. February 12 can't come soon enough!

Starting a business may have historically been perceived as a man’s game, but this couldn’t be further from reality. Research shows women are actually more likely than men to actively choose to start their own business – often motivated by the desire to be their own boss or to have a better work-life balance and spend more time with their family.

How am I doing as a parent?

Evaluating yourself is hard. It's even harder when attempting to assess your parenting because there's no set guide and nothing to count, measure, or quantify.

How am I doing as a parent?

Some time ago, I met my lovely friend for a drink, straight off the train from London. She told me about a very intense performance review she had at work recently, which, although scary, was incredibly useful; it gave her a general sense of how she was doing and areas to work on.

And it struck me we don't get this feedback as parents. Am I doing a good job? I have no idea.
