Walking the Purple Carpet at the Inside Out Premiere! #InsideOutEvent @PixarInsideOut

Walking the Purple Carpet at the Inside Out Premiere!

By Erin

*I attended as a guest of Disney as a part of the Inside Out Event and I  am very grateful for the opportunity to do so.*

Last Monday marked the rainbow colored Los Angeles premiere of Inside Out. The movie’s stars, included Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Phyllis Smith, Lewis Black and  Mindy Kaling who all walked the vibrant purple carpet on June 8th.  The star-studded premiere also included Mario Lopez, Pink, Rob Riggle, Minnie Driver, Busy Philipps and many more. This was my 2nd time walking the red carpet at a premiere. Or rather I should say *first time* walking the purple carpet as this carpet was NOT red, but a brilliant PURPLE! My first time on a red one was last summer for Guardians of the Galaxy, which was also a very memorable experience.


So come take a walk with me along the *Purple* carpet! 🙂


At the premiere they had a model of what the control center looks like inside of 11-year-old Riley’s mind!


As we continued to make our way down the carpet, we noticed that they had themed games that represented the five islands of Riley’s personality — family, goofball, friendship, hockey, and honesty.


They even had a bounce house and a silly, but fun Honesty Island game, which of course we had to play!


Being the total foodie that I am, I had to take some shots of all the delicious eats and movie themed food items. You might not quite get the Broccoli Pizza bit just yet… go see the movie this Friday, then you’ll be in on the joke too. 🙂


Then these cupcakes, how adorable are they? They were quite tasty too!


Of course what would a *purple* carpet event be without all the movie stars??? 😉

Have you been to Knott’s lately? If you have, you may have noticed a lot of pink and hearts decorating the park. No, it’s not for Valentine’s Day, but for something even more special and important. Knott’s Berry Farm is proudly partnering up with Susan G. Komen Orange County for the second year in a row to offer a very special Pink Ticket” through March 27th, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Susan G Komen Orange County, your local breast health organization helping to serve women and save lives.

KnottsPink For the Cure

At the kick off event for Knott’s Pink for the Cure,  we were able to honor an amazing fellow blogger and dear friend, Jaime Jenkins of Polka Dots on Parade, who’s currently fighting breast cancer and is a beautiful, positive woman! She is such a ray of sunshine and brings joy and happiness wherever she goes. Her strength and bright spirit has inspired many of us; her smile will light up the room, her hugs will lift your spirit with how powerful they are, her energy and enthusiasm is contagious.

At the kickoff event, many of the amazing women who are Pink Warriors, survivors of breast cancer, rode on the Jaguar ride at Knott’s.  Many of these courageous ladies will fight every day of their life to make it through this. Their strength and positivity amazes and inspires me. I just love Jaime’s contagious smile here. It is just full of pure joy! 🙂

Knott’s Goes Pink For the Cure With Susan G. Komen #KnottsPink & Giveaway

Knott’s Goes Pink For the Cure With Susan G. Komen 

By Erin

Disclosure: I will be attending a media event at Knott’s Berry Farm courtesy of Gigasavvy to hear about the Susan G. Komen & Knott’s partnership. The Knott’s Ticket giveaway is also kindly provided by Giga Savvy! All thoughts and opinions remain my own.

Knott's Goes PinkIt’s no secret that I love the amusement parks that Southern California has to offer. When I heard that one of my favorite places was teaming up with a good cause like Susan G Komen to help fight breast cancer, I knew I had to help spread the word and share about the wonderful work they were going to do together.

For the months of February and March, Knott’s Berry Farm and Susan G. Komen of Orange County are working together to raise money for breast cancer awareness, services and research by offering a very special “Pink Ticket” and limited edition specially designed “pink” merchandise. Knott’s will offer a specially discounted “Pink Ticket” February 1st-March 31st in support of the organization.

In Orange County, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Thanks to Komen’s funding of research, new treatments and awareness of the importance of annual mammograms to detect breast cancer in its earliest and most curable stages, the survival rate for breast cancer has risen dramatically over the 33 years of the organization. The Orange County Komen Affiliate provides mammograms for uninsured women and works with other organizations to bring information to people throughout the county.

The promotion will provide guests with the opportunity to enjoy Knott’s world class entertainment, attractions and specially-themed “pink” décor, while supporting an important cause that touches many women. Starting February 1, through March 31, guests can purchase “Pink Tickets” for theme park admission only online at www.knotts.comA portion of the “Pink Tickets” proceeds will benefit Susan G. Komen Orange County.
