Dad Overseas Ensures 5-Year-Old Has Magical Date For Father-Daughter Dance

When a dad overseas couldn’t attend his daughter’s dance at school, he came up with a solution fit for a Disney princess

On April 28, 5-year-old Gracee Nelson attended her school’s father-daughter dance in El Paso, Texas, with an unexpected guest. Her father, Christopher Nelson, is in Afghanistan for a year-long stay as a contractor for the Army. He knew he wouldn’t be able to attend the dance with his daughter, so he worked with his wife, Lanya Nelson, to come up with a plan. 

“Once I realized how much the dance meant to her I told my husband and he wanted to make sure she’d still be able to go,” Lanya told HuffPost.

Christopher and Lanya first suggested that Gracee take her uncle or grandfather, but they soon realized it would be too difficult since they live too far away. After thinking about the dance’s theme, which was “Beauty and the Beast,” the parents decided to get the Beast to accompany Gracee to the dance.

After the parents got Gracee’s school’s approval for the surprise, they found an event company that would accommodate her request. Lanya first hinted at the idea to make sure her daughter would be comfortable with someone else taking her. Then at the dance, the Beast surprised Gracee.

“She thought the real Beast from Disney World came all the way down just for her because ‘Daddy asked,’” Lanya said.

Lanya told HuffPost that Gracee had a blast at the dance. She danced with the Beast and was able to FaceTime with her dad.

“The beast made her night such a memorable experience,” Lanya said. “She was filled with so much joy.”

Lanya said she and her husband were especially glad they were able to come up with such a fun solution for their daughter. 

“She had the time of her life and our hearts were happy knowing we didn’t let her down.”

Five Mothers Dress As Disney Princesses For Magical Maternity Shoot

Victor and Marie Luna, a husband-wife photography team in Texas, might have come up with the most magical maternity shoot ever.

On April 7, Victor, a photographer, and Marie, a photo editor, went to Newman’s Castle in Bellville, Texas, for a maternity shoot with five women. The theme? Disney princesses.

The couple was first inspired by the new popularity of “Beauty and the Beast” and then decided to expand their idea. 

“It started out with a Belle-inspired shoot, but as we talked about the ideas and planned it, the more we wanted to go outside of our own element,” the couple told HuffPost. “That is where the group shot of the Disney-inspired photo shoot with all the princesses came to be.”

For the shoot, the mothers (who were either previous clients or models) dressed as Tiana from “The Princess and the Frog,” Snow White, Cinderella, Belle from “Beauty and the Beast” and Jasmine from “Aladdin.” Sew Trendy Accessories, a business that makes handmade maternity gowns, provided the dresses.

Victor and Marie told HuffPost that they aligned the “beautiful mommies” with the princesses they thought they represented. They also described the shoot as “a mix of magic and chaos.”

“Between the wardrobe changes, the makeup retouches, the pee breaks, and one mommy close to giving birth, we managed to make it come together beautifully,” they said.

The couple didn’t want to dive too deep into the characters, but did add a few touches to the shoot like ribbons, headpieces and flowers to represent the princesses. For example, the mom who dressed as Cinderella held a glass slipper for some of her photos. 

The moms in the shoot were “incredibly excited” to see the final results, according to the couple, and Victor and Marie said they were happy to make the moms feel like Disney royalty for the day.

“When we noticed that a few people started to share the photos, our mommies would get in contact with us to let us know that they were famous!” they said. “It made us feel so happy that they were feeling like actual princesses.”

See more photos from the shoot below and see more work from Victor and Marie on Facebook and on their site.

23 Gifts And Cards For Moms Who Are Magical

There’s no question moms are magic. Only instead of pulling a rabbit from a hat, they can catch vomit in a bare, open hand.

Below, 21 extraordinary gifts and cards for the moms in your life who are so good it’s otherworldly.

The Magical Ways Ashley Graham Completely Nailed 2016

2016 was a god awful year and the dread of what’s to come in 2017 is getting ever closer. But there were some good things to come out of this past year, and Ashley Graham’s increasing presence in the public eye is one of them. 

The model, designer and body activist has led the way toward shifting beauty standards in the fashion industry, whether it be through spreading her own message of body positivity or landing jobs historically reserved for models of a smaller size. It’s hard to think of a single person in fashion who had a better, more impactful year than the 28-year-old model. 

Still not convinced? Allow us to break it down for you chronologically. We could essentially create a running list of every successful minute of Graham’s year, but that would be creepy and we’d be here all day. So herewith, her biggest, boldest wins of 2016. 

#1

Graham kicked off the year with a bang in January by being named one of Forbes’ 30 under 30 in Art and Style, thanks to her growing roster of magazine covers and a successful lingerie line.  

#2 

Then, in February Graham landed the cover of the iconic Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, becoming the first plus-size model to ever earn the highly coveted spot, and catapulting her to stardom. 

#3

Just a few weeks later, Graham co-hosted E!’s Academy Awards red carpet coverage on Feb. 22 alongside Zanna Rassi, Kris Jenner and Giuliana Rancic wearing one insanely beautiful dress.

Had a wonderful time with these gorgeous ladies on @enews tonight! #Oscars // dress by @baotranchi //

A photo posted by A S H L E Y G R A H A M (@theashleygraham) on

#4

March brought the in-demand model to Paris, where she walked in H&M’s show at Paris Fashion Week. C’est bien!

#5

She covered Maxim’s April issue, and then Cosmpolitan’s August issue and Self in October, to name a few. Shall we go on? 

#6

We shall. In May, the supermodel appeared as Joe Jonas’ love interest in the video for DNCE’s “Toothbrush.” Jonas, Graham and DNCE were all praised for the move. The super sexy video didn’t hurt, either. 

#7

Graham was unsurprisingly named one of Glamour’s Women of the Year in early November, but the month ended up being a double win when she was presented with a Barbie made in her likeness, complete with touching thighs

#8

The very last day of November left us with one reason to be excited for 2017 ― she became the first plus-size model to land the cover of British Vogue.

#9

Finally, Graham made her debut as a judge on the “America’s Next Top Model” reboot on Dec. 12, alongside Rita Ora, stylist Law Roach and photographer Drew Elliot. 

Bow down. 2016 was a great year for Graham.

Gratitude: The Path to a Meaningful – and Magical – Life

Long after Thanksgiving is over, two things endure – the feeling that I couldn’t possibly eat another piece of turkey…and, more importantly, a deep sense of gratitude.

It will come as no surprise, then, to learn that I recently picked up a book called GRATITUDE by Oliver Sacks. It’s a quartet of essays that he wrote in the last two years of his life. Despite his struggles battling cancer, he chose to highlight his immense gratitude – something he felt not only through that ordeal, but through his entire life.

Here’s what he says about the gifts of old age:

One has had a long experience of life, not only one’s own life, but others’ too. One has seen triumphs and tragedies, booms and busts, revolutions and wars, great achievements and deep ambiguities… One is more conscious of transience and, perhaps, of beauty.

And he concludes:

I do not think of old age as an ever-grimmer time that one must somehow endure and make the best of, but as a time…freed from the urgencies of earlier days, free to explore whatever I wish, and to bind the thoughts and feelings of a lifetime together.

As you gather with loved ones this holiday season, I invite you to allow gratitude to fill your spirit and lead you into the New Year. How? Let Merlin guide you.

While Merlin is beloved around the world as a legendary wizard, the Merlin I’ve written many books about is also a real human being. He has struggles, sorrows, joys, and aspirations – and, hidden deep within him, a remarkable gift. In that way, Merlin is no different from all of us: he is burdened by the human experience, while at the very same time exalted by it.

All of us have hidden struggles – and hidden potential. And all of us, like the great wizard Merlin, have something special within us. No matter how many obstacles we face, we still have the ability to reach for the stars. We can strive, create, love, hope, sing, be kind, and work to build a better world.

Recently, I wrote a book about Merlin’s seven most magical words, THE WISDOM OF MERLIN: 7 Magical Words for a Meaningful Life. I purposely chose Gratitude to be the first of those words. Here’s a passage that explains why:

Gratitude is a good place to begin to make a meaningful life. To be wholly alive is to be grateful–for every breath we take, every song we sing, every person we love, every day we discover.

All we have–truly all we have–is our time and our souls. Even if you live as long as a wizard, that time is really very brief. It’s never long enough to do all you can do and be all you can be.

Each day, take a moment to love a person, a place, or an idea that touched your heart. Cherish those blessings through all the seasons of a year–and all the seasons of your life.

My favorite place to feel grateful is in nature–under a starry sky in Colorado wilderness, by the vast ocean at the Great Barrier Reef, or in a grove of towering redwoods in California.

Here’s the miracle of such places: With nature’s wonders all around, I feel both very small and very large at once–diminished and humbled by my own insignificance, while also enlarged and inspired by the vast sweep of creation. And both you and I belong to that creation! For we are all made from miracles, no less than the stars themselves.

One of humanity’s great challenges is to embrace nature without suffocating it–to treat our natural home with appreciation, not exploitation. We have been given the garden planet of the universe–and we can either nurture or devour it, protect or destroy it.

Fortunately, we have one great advantage in facing any challenges: ourselves. We can accomplish anything if we truly devote ourselves to the task.

And that, my friend, is worthy of our gratitude.

This Photo Of Taylor Swift And Emma Watson Is More Magical Than Hogwarts

Baby, now we got Mudblood.

Muggle-born witch Hermione Granger, aka actress Emma Watson, and “Bad Blood” singer Taylor Swift met up for a photo Saturday at the singer’s London show. The snap reportedly happened backstage and was shared by singer Lauren Aquilina, who also appeared in the photo along with Martha Hunt, Karlie Kloss and Echosmith singer Sydney Sierota:

“Harry Potter” actor Tom Felton previously told The Huffington Post that Swift would probably be sorted in Gryffindor, which might explain how Watson and the singer became buds. (They obviously bonded while studying for exams in the common room.)

But Swift also brought Hunt, Kloss, Cara Delevingne, Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Serena Williams on stage with her during the show, which is so magical that it can only mean one thing:

Taylor Swift isn’t building a “squad”; she’s making Dumbledore’s Army.

Way to go, Taylor. Dumbledore will never be gone! Not as long as those who remain are loyal to him!

Someone Requested All Of The FCC Complaints Against ’30 Rock,’ And They’re Magical

Ain’t no filth like Liz Lemon filth.

Tiny Fey’s “30 Rock” ran for 138 episodes, garnering more than 100 Emmy nominations, but apparently it should’ve been taken off the air far sooner, thank you very much.

The fine people of MuckRock requested every FCC complaint lodged against the sitcom — there were only nine, but some viewers took strong offense to the “crap” broadcast by NBC.

Many people were upset with the show’s language, including moment’s where Fey’s character Liz Lemon “called someone a son of a bitch” and an unidentified actor said, “Kiss my daughter’s ass.” A particularly dismayed viewer was offended by the line “Have you been soaking your tampon in vodka?” and ended their complaint chastising the character Jenna Maroney for “kissing a man dressed as a woman.”

And of course the network sensation “MILF Island” was mentioned by a foul-mouthed complainer: “M-I-L-F is acronym for ‘Mother I’d Like to Fuck’ This is shameful … Where in the WORLD is the decency rules and why are they not being enforced.”

Maybe the network should’ve run with “Queen of Jordan” instead.

Take a full look at all of the complaints below:

Costa Rica Magical Places to Visit

Costa Rica Magical Places to Visit


Costa Rica’s incredible biodiversity and variable climate offers a multitude of travel destinations to explore and enjoy. With so much to see, deciding where to go can often be the hardest part of your trip planning process. Often, a good first step is to choose one or two destinations, and then complementary locations can be found based on time constraints, proximity, and interest. Many travelers choose three or four destinations to visit in a 7-10 day period. One of the reasons Costa Rica is such an exciting country to visit is that it affords visitors the opportunity to see multiple locations and habitats on a single vacation.

Lalaine Explains How That Magical ‘Lizzie McGuire’ Reunion Came To Be

Unless you’ve been living under a rock (and that rock doesn’t have Wi-Fi), you’ve probably heard about the recent mini “Lizzie McGuire” reunion with Hilary Duff, Lalaine and Jake Thomas. If you did somehow miss it, just know their spontaneous meetup in a bowling alley was definitely what dreams are made of.

So this happened last night… #LizzieMcGuire

A photo posted by Jake Thomas (@sirjakethomas) on




Recently, Miranda Sanchez (known as Lalaine IRL) spoke with HuffPost Entertainment and explained why that impromptu meeting was totally fate.


Image: Tumblr

So how did this even happen?
I like to bowl. I have my own ball that my dude got me during Christmas, so we’re pretty into it. We started bowling and I swore I thought I heard [Hilary Duff]. Like her voice will never not be recognizable for me. I mean, c’mon, we were like family for how long? And then I looked, and it totally was her. We finally happened to be in the same place after 14 years. It was random and a little bit of fate maybe, so I forced fate’s hand a little bit and I immediately hit up Jake [Thomas] because he’s like less than a mile away from the bowling alley.

Oh cool, so you guys kept in touch?
Yeah, I have actually been very close with most of the people that were on the show. I was just on the phone with Adam [Lamberg] for example, so I just was like, “This is hilarious,” so I hit Jake up, and I was like, “Yo, at Pins. Hilary’s like four lanes down,” and he was like, “Haha! Oh my God! Should I come there?” So he came on over, and then we were like, “Let’s make this even more hilarious and send her a drink.” And we did. She waved to us, and she had no idea who we were because we were pretty far from her and it was dark.

But then she walked over and immediately saw me. As she was walking up, I’m just like, “Really, girl? Really?”… It hit her that it’s me. She turned around and was cracking up, and it didn’t even faze her that Jake was standing right next to me. I was like, “Are you kidding me? Did you not see this thing right by me?” She was like double stumped … It was just fate.


Image: Giphy

Wow, this is amazing. It’s the best Instagram post I’ve ever seen.
Oh for sure, and Jake was just like, “I get dibs on putting this up first,” and I was like, “I don’t care about that, dude.” It’s probably been a couple years less for him, like, maybe it’s been 12 years for him since he’s seen her, but for me it’s been like 14 … I was more on the fact that it was hilarious that all of us were here.

So was Gordo not invited because he hates bowling?
[Laughs] Oh my God! Adam would’ve totally been invited. Gordo may hate bowling, but who knows — after 12 years he might’ve changed his mind.

Might’ve changed his mind. Sure …

22 Terrifying and Magical Capabilities Someone Has When You Fall For Them

Love is terrifying, and terror is love.

How exceptional is falling in love? How breathtakingly incredible? How painful and enchanted it is to have your heart opened. It presents so many chances for overwhelming pain, and also for captivating joy. It’s a double-edged sword that can release your innermost desires and also your deepest fears.

Oh, love. How petrifying and wondrous is the single most infinite component of human life. Here are 22 powers your beloved has when you first fall for them:

  1. They see who you really are. Your insecurities and flaws lie exposed like an open wound.
  2. They want you, regardless. You know that what you see as ugliness is lovable to them. You know you’re perfectly imperfect to them, and few things in life match that comfort.
  3. They can leave you and you know you’ll feel a little lost if they do.
  4. They can stay. They can be there when no one else is.
  5. They can hold you back in life when you focus too much on them.
  6. They can support and push you. They can directly aid in the pursuit of your dreams.
  7. They have expectations for you that you could not be able to meet, and you worry you could become a disappointment.
  8. You could fulfill every hope of theirs and then some. You could be gratifying and refreshing in all that you are.
  9. They could be unfaithful to you and embarrass you.
  10. They’re choosing you and only you. Being with you means they want you. You’re wanted solely and exclusively, which is worth the risk.
  11. They can hurt you.
  12. They can heal you.
  13. They can expose and exploit you.
  14. They can listen to and keep every one of your secrets. They can be your safe home and endless confidant.
  15. They can take you from the people in your life.
  16. They can encourage you to spend time with the people you love, and also introduce you to new and exciting people.
  17. They can painfully reject your opinions and beliefs.
  18. They can open your mind to new perspectives.
  19. They can easily break you down.
  20. They can easily build you up.
  21. Everything could change.
  22. Or, they can change everything.

The ‘Harry Potter’ Cast Had The Most Magical Reunion Ever

We solemnly swear that this is amazing.

Draco Malfoy was hanging out with the Weasleys in West Hollywood recently and decided to share the Hogwarts reunion on Instagram for all us Muggles to see. Ten points to Slytherin for that!

Joining actor Tom Felton in the photo were Rupert Grint, otherwise known as Ron, actress Bonnie Wright, perhaps better known as Ginny, and actor James Phelps, otherwise known as Fred. And something tells us they weren’t drinking butter beers:

Kim K stood me up. Outnumbered by 3 Weasleys. Ugh.

A photo posted by Tom Felton (@t22felton) on




In the caption, Felton also made light of Kim Kardashian’s new look, which has been compared to his in the “Harry Potter” movies. Felton previously told HuffPost Entertainment that Kardashian would be a Slytherin at Hogwarts, so apparently he was spot on. Phelps also shared a reunion photo of his own with a caption reading, “Mini family reunion…and Tom”:

Mini family reunion…and Tom. Great night with the gang

A photo posted by James Phelps (@jamesphelps_pictures) on



Accio good times, right? Though the group didn’t share many details of what they were up to, we’re guessing it was mischief managed.

How A Midwest Thunderstorm Resulted In Magical Engagement Photos

There are certain moments in our lives — vacations, wedding days, family picnics — when rain is basically the worst thing ever. But once in a while, the rain we dread so much creates a memory we never saw coming.

This was the case for Jeff and Jessica, a young couple who recently planned their engagement shoot in the small town of Kelly, Kan. only to have it interrupted by one of those famous midwest thunderstorms.

Of course the lovebirds and their photographer, from Salt and Pine Photo, decided to turn lemons into lemonade — which resulted in one of the most enchanting engagement photos we’ve ever seen. Here’s their story:

The day started out fine, the couple is all smiles stealing kisses on Jeff’s family farm.

Then, the storm clouds came in, ominously looming overhead.

The rain began to pour down on them — but Jeff and Jessica powered though it.

Their photographer Darryl thought an outfit change might give the rain a chance to stop — and it did for a minute.

But then the rain had other plans and became a full on downpour; Soaking them head to toe.

And this one — all of which would not be possible had they gone inside.

A Magical Six-Week Life Experiment

I had been busy building a career for 15 years. This was the path I thought I needed to excel in to have a “successful life.” I had been collecting degrees, accolades, promotions. But last year I was feeling stuck and unfulfilled. Maybe success meant something else? I was very good at putting my work subjects through various experiments but I had never taken the time to do that with my own life. So why not design a life experiment to test my life perceptions? All I needed to do was conquer the fear of leaving my job and give myself the permission to change a few life variables.

Inspired by Arianna Huffington’s book Thrive and her journey through redefining success, I decided to leave my job, my home and my packed calendar to visit a different country every week. It was time to put up for review the very well-planned life that I was holding on to so tightly — one that was not bringing me joy. As I went through my life experiment, let’s call it my Thrive sabbatical, I noticed I was experiencing magical changes week by week.

1. I became closer with the world around me. I became more present. Of course, staring less at my cell phone really helped! I observed more, I felt more and I did less “sleep walk” living. Instead of being self-absorbed and always in my head, or on my phone, I chose to travel the world with an open heart for every person and experience I encountered. I found language was not a barrier for the heart and stories to connect. Inspired by the traditional Thai greeting, I found myself taking the time to bow to and recognize the presence of other beings. I felt closer to every life expression. I also never really felt alone.

2. I came to terms with my active mind. Taming your mind is like teaching a child to behave… a hard task. I went on two retreats, and at the beginning of each, I was resisting the experience of calming down. Apparently my mind was not OK with being still. After a few days of Yoga, meditation and silence my chatty mind surrendered to the simplicity of life. And I was happier. I was learning that mastering my own mind was more meaningful than getting another Master’s degree.

3. I stopped feeling time starved. The time famine stopped as I was experiencing the world without a set schedule. As a result, I became more generous with my time. I enjoyed simply being part of someone else’s life for a little bit. I watched the sunset every day. Believing that time was not scarce gave me more freedom and joy. I learned that time famine is something I create and a feeling I control. I can now set better priorities that include time for joy and helping others high on the list.

4. I began to let go more easily. My plans changed a few times — like with the unexpected military coup in Thailand, which affected travel. I also had to let go of my routine, expectations and old thought patterns — like negative feelings from the past. The more I did it, the easier it became. When it rained at the beach, instead of running to find shelter, I chose to stay out and enjoy the water. It actually felt warmer. When I danced with life versus trying to stop the dance, things simply flowed better.

5. I discovered endless lifestyle choices. I met fascinating people with refreshing lifestyles — scuba instructors, teachers in foreign countries, yearlong sabbatical people, athletes, entrepreneurs, etc. This helped me lessen my fear to change things in my own life. It was a permission to redefine what success looks like. I asked myself frequently: “If my main life purpose was simply to thrive, how I would design my life?”

6. I learned that the things that really matter in life are portable. I am not my house, car or job; I am just a human being who is here to experience the world every day as it comes. We don’t really need as much as we think we do. In my case, all that I needed came along with me on this trip. My whole being, which includes my body, my soul and yes, the chatty mind I wanted to calm down is portable. And their well-being is what became most important to me. Success without a peaceful mind, a thriving body and a joyful spirit was not the kind of success I desired any longer.

These are just some of the magical lessons that I learned from simply living differently for six weeks. The benefits of this life experiment still continue: Upon my return, my feeling of being stuck went away; I was fully happy in my heart, mind and body. Strangely enough, letting go also brought me new opportunities, people and ideas that I didn’t expect. Instead of losing my job, I got promoted upon my return.

I am determined to live by these lessons and to pretend I am on a sabbatical every day. I want to be energized and more present. Give my best to others. Make meditation and watching the sunset part of my weekly routine. That is what having a thriving life means to me. And if I ever forget how to do it, I will keep going on sabbaticals to rediscover life’s magic.

What are you waiting for to design your own sabbatical life experiment? I promise it will be magical.

If you need encouragement to go on a sabbatical (yes you can do it!) or have questions tweet me @crogoll.

Magical Memories: The Greatest Royal Photographs of All Time

Magical Memories: The Greatest Royal Photographs of All Time


A fully updated collection of the very best of Arthur’s delightful color pictures and unique stories, including the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, the 2012 Olympics, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s new baby In terms of royal photography, Arthur Edwards is a legend. For 30 years, he has captured the most poignant and memorable moments in the recent history of the monarchy. His images range from candid shots to intimate portraits to rare moments when protocol is put aside to reveal the true personalities behind. Princess Diana referred to him as “our Arthur” and Prince Charles introduces him to world leaders when they are on royal tours. He has been on hand to capture the blossoming romance and subsequent wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton; he was there to witness happy and loving moments at the start of Charles and Diana’s marriage; he saw Prince William’s first steps; and he was there for Prince Harry’s first day at Eton. As well as having taken momentous pictures, Arthur has fascinating stories to go with them. For example, the time when Patti Palmer-Tomkinson announced to the assembled press that her “Uncle Harry” would be joining her party–and out stepped Prince Charles wearing false glasses, nose, and moustache. Or in Liverpool when a young lad rode up to Princess Diana and asked for a kiss–and she obliged. It was also Arthur who pointed out to Prince Charles during a polo match that his fly was down–having checked with Arthur that nothing was showing, the Prince then carried on playing. This wonderful book is packed with the magical memories of someone who has been present as history and headlines have been made.
