Another find from my President's Day Outlet trip!  I can't wait to really wear this - I tried to wear it out once in 30 degree weather and still froze my tush off.  But soon.  Soon we'll be having more 40+ degree days and I can sport my new Under Armour vest! Cute, right?  I can't find it online at a good price right now but keep looking.  This … [Read more...]

As a part of a campaign with Procter & Gamble, I was challenged to test out some Vidal Sassoon products the week after the Oscars.  I was to pick some fun hair styles I liked on various celebs and use some Vidal Sassoon products to try and recreate the look.  So fun, right? Here are two hair styles I thought were fun and would be different … [Read more...]

For the first time ever this month, I ordered something off Groupon. Not a restaurant or some sort of coupon deal but an actual product. It was this Aduro Liqua Sheild iPad Keyboard Case and I paid what it's listed for on Amazon. (It retails for $59.99 but Amazon has it listed for $29.99. Should have known Amazon would have it at a great … [Read more...]

If it's possible to even make this statement, I'm a bit of a makeup wipe connoisseur. I know, it's a bit funny and random but I literally have an obsession with trying different facial wipes. I'm constantly trying new ones and I use them at least twice a day. Once, at night, to take my makeup off. And once in the morning. Because inevitably, … [Read more...]

For the past few years, I've been using an open bin/container with mismatched folders to store keepsakes from my kids' school years. We're talking report cards, cool art work, certificates and more. I'm really not much of a hoarder when it comes to the items they bring home. I only save the really neat stuff or important papers (like the annual … [Read more...]

Such a simple design yet so totally perfect: the Light My Way Portable Nightlight is a huge hit in our house for my 6 year old. The handle is the best part - it's easy for little hands to grasp & he can carry it around with him at night. I think it's actually designed for a younger crowd too so I would imagine this is also fun for toddlers! … [Read more...]

As far back as I can remember, I loved to read. I remember reading in Kindergarten, elementary school and beyond and just loving books.  Judy Blume was my inappropriate author choice in elementary school and thanks to an older cousin, by middle school, I was reading Judith Krantz and Danielle Steel. (Probably with many a shocked look on my face at … [Read more...]

Love this video that just came out from Sesame Street with Big Bird and Michelle Obama chatting about healthy snack options for kids. So fun and love that they're just hangin' in the White House kitchen! Ha! Also fun is this Get Moving video with Michelle & Big Bird... Big Bird just makes me laugh moving around in the background! … [Read more...]

Over Presidents Day weekend, the fam & I took a trip to the Philadelphia Premium Outlets in Limerick, PA. I had never been before and boy did we score big! Not only do all of the stores have fab outlet prices, but we picked the right weekend to go - nearly every store was having additional clearance sales for Presidents Weekend. Like seriously, … [Read more...]

If you have a boy who is 7+, chances are you have heard of Minecraft or he's already playing! My 9-year-old son has been playing Minecraft for a little over a year now. It's the *it* game for boys right now, or it sure seems like it! While I play, I would imagine most Moms don't (I'm a geek) and don't really have any clue what about the game. … [Read more...]
