Tweet Three weeks ago I was invited to an amazing event hosted by Audrey McClelland and Proctor and Gamble. It was a Back to School Event where we were treated to manis and pedis and shown some great stuff that Proctor and Gamble have for getting the kids ready for back to school. And I have to admit, I am not ready, but I wanted to pass this che

Tweet I hate LEGOS. The big toddler LEGOS, they are just OK. But those small, ubiquitous, pieces of plastic…yes, I hate those. They suck. They can kiss my…well, they are annoying. And now that my boys are 7 and 5 years of age, they have become OBSESSED with LEGOS. Specifically, LEGO Ninjago. Every day I wind up stepping on little

Tweet So my husband has been eyeballing all of the products that I received from the Disney Baby event, hoping that its not a hint. His wish is that I get it out of the house as soon as possible. In order to make that happen, I need YOU to tell me about a mom-to-be who would love to have it. Or one that you are supposed to buy a gift for, but do

Stranger Danger
July 20 2012, 2 Comments


Earlier this week, here in Philadelphia where I live, there was an attempted child abduction caught on tape. A ten-year old girl was walking home with her two-year old brother and a man physically picked her up and tried to take her. She fought him off with tactics that she picked up by watching Law and Order SVU. Her little brother also screamed so loud that it scared the attacker away. I was invited to the local NBC affiliate to speak on-camera about what happened and how I plan on [...]

The Owie Pillow Let's face it, seat belts weren't designed for the pregnant belly. They were made to protect our bodies from vehicular impact. So when a woman becomes pregnant, its no surprise that there is some discomfort across the lap be [...]

Pretty Mommies Skincare - Our Newest Product Line
June 21 2012, 0 Comments


Pregnancy mask, oily skin, freak acne breakouts, I had it all when I was pregnant with my little ones. Even now my skin gets a bit oily and I sometimes get funky little breakouts, so I am very critical when it comes to skincare products. Recently new skincare company Pretty Mommies contacted me about reviewing their products I have to admit, I was hesitant at first. I mean what makes them so different from the other brands that are out on the market, ALL formulated for and marketed towards pre [...]

House Plants, the New Shower Gift
June 01 2012, 0 Comments


While looking for new and interesting baby shower gifts, I recently came across a brand new company called Green Your Air. Their baby shower gifts are basically PLANTS! NASA has provided research that shows that plants can naturally filter dangerous chemicals that are found in your home. That "new smell" that emanates off of your baby's new crib, mattress and other furniture could be very harmful. And because many new homes are made with man-made materials and are sealed to be more energy ef [...]

I Found a Skin Care Line That Honestly Works - GIVEAWAY
May 22 2012, 40 Comments


I have been on a lifelong quest to find a regimen that works for my busy lifestyle. My experimentation has lead me from Clinique, BeautiControl, Clarisonic to Neutrogena, Olay...the list is endless. Like you, I have received little packet-sized samples of skin care products, but there is barely enough of a sample for one to realize a clear result. That is until I attended the Face 2 Face Event. Christina from Therapon gave each attendee a FULL skin care kit to try so that we could adequately [...]

Mother's Day Gifts From Small Children
May 08 2012, 0 Comments


Every year I rush around trying to purchase Mother's Day gifts for not just my mother, but my mother-in-law, and two grandmothers. I hand the gifts to my two boys to present to our "mothers", but I realized last year, there is a huge disconnect. My boys would love the opportunity to contribute to that celebration of the women who have given us so much support. So this Mother's Day is our chance to do just that. This year, I decided to have my boys "create" their gifts. About a month ago, [...]

Stonyfield Greek Yogurt FOR KIDS!!!
May 01 2012, 0 Comments


Since I have started on my healthy kick, my newest love is greek yogurt. First introduced to my by a worldly co-worker, I opened it up and thought, "there is no way I am eating this chunky stuff". I mean it looked like cottage cheese. That was enough for me to throw it away. But when I was looking for additional sources of protein, I found the greek yogurt has TWICE the amount of protein than regular yogurt, so I made the switch. As with most moms, whenever I sit down to eat something [...]

In January of this year I was on a show called, "The Revolution". They wanted to show a typical family and how our "convenient" lifestyle impacts the earth. The show connected me with Annie Leonard from YouTube viral video sensation, "Story of Stuff". Annie gave me some great ways to reduce. Here is the followup podcast interview: What simple changes can you make to impact the environment?
