Still waiting to hear if we'll actually have Trick or Treating tomorrow in our area as Sandy came through and has done some damage!

Sunday I had posted how we were prepping for Sandy. It was weird - when Irene hit here last year, we were visiting my parents in Florida. I remember not sleeping well the night it hit - obsessively checking Facebook and Twitter to see how friends were back home. I also remember feeling I wish I were home to just check on our house, our cats, etc … [Read more...]

From important emails to holiday gift ideas, work notes to beauty products to try, Evernote lets me keep all of my random bits information for work, life, house, friends and motherhood in one easily searchable place. But it gets even … [Read more...]

Fall is such a fun time... hayrides, candy, being outside, enjoying the weather. Why not do all of those things, while at the same time enjoying rides, shows, and your favorite friends from Sesame Street? We had the opportunity to do just that at Sesame Place this month and enjoyed their Halloween Spooktacular event! If you have never been to … [Read more...]

Last month, I shared a post with you guys on Finding the Right Pair of Sunglasses.  The post was in honor of a new ambassador program and relationship I have with VSP Vision Care.  I'm really enjoying working with them. They already happened to be my eye care provider, but there was a ton I didn't know about them, like the fact that they are the … [Read more...]

How many times have you guys done this? Put your makeup on in the morning, checked it, thought it looked good and walked out the door. Then, like 6 hours later, you catch a glimpse of yourself and you realize your makeup's off and you've got some shine going on that you'd otherwise have not be there?
