Who doesn’t have a hilarious love/hate relationship with their sisters? As the eldest of FIVE sisters, we’ve had our share of everything, from chaotic catfight craziness to simple sibling love! The holidays are the best time to take a little break from the holiday shopping, cooking and kids reunite with your sisters over dinner and a movie. And what better movie to check out this weekend than SISTERS – in theaters this Friday, December 18th!
About the movie: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler reunite for SISTERS, a new film from Pitch Perfect director Jason Moore about two disconnected sisters summoned home to clean out their childhood bedroom before their parents sell the family house. Looking to recapture their glory days, they throw one final high-school-style party for their classmates, which turns into the cathartic rager that a bunch of ground-down adults really need.
If you’re a fan of SNL, Parks & Recreation or 30 Rock then you know just how hilarious Tina Fey and Amy Poehler can get. After watching the trailers on tv and online, I’m ready to grab my girls this Friday and catch what’s sure to be the funniest film of the holiday season.
There’s just something about the bond of a sister! Have a favorite sister? What about a sisterly confession? Enter for your chance to win a super cool SISTERS Party Pack Giveaway!
(and don’t be stingy – share the love and tell your favorite sister to enter too!)

When was the last time you’ve truly received a gift you loved for the holidays? Some gifts these days are 50% well-thought and others are 50% re-gifted efforts. I’ve received my fair share of gifts for years, and there’s no better gift to share or re-gift than a gift card! I mean, I’ve traded off gift cards as stocking stuffers, holiday card stuffers – you name it! But what if you found a gift that everyone would want – no re-gifting necessary?
I’m so excited to be partnering with AT&T this holiday season to celebrate AT&T’s 12 Days of Giving! The 12 Days of Giving promotion is all about showing off the best holiday gifts for 2015. Starting Cyber Monday, November 30th through December 11th, the AT&T’s 12 Days of Giving promotion will highlight a different product perfect for anyone on your gift list. Each daily gift will be specially priced (and if you keep reading, you’ll even have a chance to win one for yourself or anyone on your gift list below!)
One of the top gifts on everyone’s wish list this year is a tablet! The Microsoft Surface 3 one of my favorite tablets for work and play while on the go. Powered by AT&T, the Microsoft Surface 3 is the most compact member of the Surface family and is the equivalent of a desktop computer, you can hold in one hand. It offers the best performance of a tablet, like downloading movies and gaming but it also outperforms other tablets offering a full USB port, Micro SD card reader and the ability to run full versions of iTunes, Photoshop and other Windows desktop software.
From Entrepreneurs to students, the Microsoft Surface 3 makes a great gift for practically anyone! Why not replace the family desktop at home and empower the loved one in your life with productivity on the go with a Microsoft Surface 3. Why not give a gift or get a gift that you too will love? I’ve partnered with AT&T to gift one lucky reader with a Microsoft Surface 3 ($599 value) – just like mine!

The holidays are filled with reuniting with family and friends plus photos for Facebook and Instagram – the last thing I need is cold weather ushering in dry skin dilemmas. Dull, flaky skin and dark spots are not welcomed on this face and it only takes one sub-par selfie to remind me to supercharge my skincare regimen with the UK’s #1 beauty brand – Boots No7.
Lucky for me, youthful genes run in the family and I don’t have to stress out about wrinkles and fine lines anytime soon. But that doesn’t give me the green light to neglect proper care for my skin. Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Advanced Serum is the prevention care that my skin needs, it’s easy to use and provides easy-to-see results. After 2 weeks, skin looks younger and more radiant; by 4 weeks, skin looks clearer, and fine lines are visibly reduced.
As a “wash-and-go” kinda girl, I don’t have a lot of time fuss over my face in the morning. Using the Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Advanced Serum is as easy as it gets. After cleaning my face, I simply apply the serum and go! (To fight off dry winter skin, I also use No7 Beautiful Skin moisturizing cream & Youthful Eye serum to boost protection and keep the ashy face at bay.)
What comes next is soft, hydrated skin that looks completely refreshed, renewed and ready to snap a throwback selfie reminiscent of my high school years! (It’s no wonder 80% of women said this serum provided the best anti-aging results they had ever seen!)
The beauty behind Boots, is that no matter what stage your skin is in, they have skincare for everyone! Boots No7 offers four anti-aging skincare ranges that target different stages of skin aging and concerns.
No7 Protect & Perfect Advanced: Powerful prevention that protects skin from future signs of aging, keeping it looking younger for longer.
No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced: This serum restores visibly younger looking skin and is intended to combat deeper lines and wrinkles.
No7 Life & Luminate Day & Night Serum: This powerful duo targets three key signs of visible aging: wrinkles, lack of firmness, and uneven skin tone.
No7 Restore & Renew Day & Night Serum: Clinically proven to strengthen mature skin and reveal youthful radiance. This powerful serum duo works together to effectively target five key signs of aging in mature skin.

Remember a few months ago when the revolutionary Apple iPad Pro and Pencil was revealed? Discover the iPad pro release date and exactly when you can get your hands on the highly anticipated tablet below!
Apple unveiled its long-rumored larger iPad – the iPad Pro – at its iPhone 6s and 6s Plus launch event. Apple is even offering a stylus for the first time with the iPad Pro — something Steve Jobs famously joked was a sign of failure in both smartphones and tablets a couple years ago.
The iPad Pro is the most advanced and powerful iPad ever made. Its beautiful and large 12.9-inch Retina display has 5.6 million pixels and provides an immersive experience for content and apps. The iPad Pro is far and away the fastest iOS device ever made — its A9X chip beats most portable PCs in both CPU and graphics tasks, but is thin and light enough to hold all day.
Apple announced that the 12.9-inch iPad Pro would go on sale in November but never gave a concrete date. A new report claims it will actually be released in the first week of November, along with the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard accessories, which will set you back $99 and $169.
The iPad Pro starts at $799 for the 32 GB Wi-Fi model, while the high-end 128 GB Wi-Fi + Cellular retails for $1,079.
But wait, there’s more…

If you’ve been reading DivasandDorks.com for a few years, then you know how year after year – AT&T has been leading the change to educate and advocate against the dangers of distracted driving. As a matter of fact, AT&T has invested thousand of man hours and dollars in programming events, research and even partnering with Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile to spread the message that when it comes to multitasking while behind the wheel – It Can Wait.
AT&T has expanded the It Can Wait campaign from a focus on texting while driving to include major smartphone driving distractions like tweeting, snapping selfies and checking email from behind the wheel.
[Must Read: “It Can Wait” Battles The Most Deadliest Days Of The Year]
New research from AT&T shows nearly 4-in-10 smartphone users tap into social media while driving. Almost 3-in-10 surf the net, and surprisingly, 1-in-10 video chat. 7-in-10 people engage in smartphone activities while driving. While texting and emailing are still on the top of the list for distracted driving activities but now Facebook tops the list, with more than 25% of those surveyed admitted to using the app while driving.
AT&T is using the survey findings to help drive awareness of the dangers of smartphone use behind the wheel, and to encourage life-saving behavior change. AT&T’s working with social platforms and will launch a nationwide virtual reality tour this summer to show smartphone users that there’s no such thing as safe driving while using a smartphone. Twitter has even jumped on board with AT&T to share messages about the dangers of smartphone use behind the wheel.
Samsung, Bose and Google will support the immersive tour experience, which will be delivered through Samsung Gear VR, with premium sound from Bose QuietComfort 25 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones. Google Cardboard will make it possible for people to use their own smartphones to see the 3D virtual reality program.
Since 2010 the “It Can Wait” program has helped drive awareness of the dangers of texting while driving and has inspired more than 6.5 million pledges not to text and drive.
[Must Read: Take The Pledge #ITCANWAIT]
This next chapter in the fight against distracted driving is dedicated to spreading the word about the dangers of texting, snapping selfies, checking Facebook and Twitter from behind the wheel – No smartphone distraction is worth a terrible accident, or worse – losing a life.
To help spread awareness about the new leaders of distracted driving, DivasandDorks.com has teamed up with AT&T to give away an amazing It Can Wait prize pack which includes a Samsung Galaxy S6 smartphone, selfie stick, Beats By Dre Pill and more (EST value: $1000).
