So as my sponsored campaign with Jergens Natural Glow draws to a close I can share with you guys my overall thoughts on the product. I did a final video of the subject that you can check out here:   You can see my first Jergens Natural Glow post, which includes my before picture from January so you can compare my current skin tone with … [Read more...]

So this is totally fun - stickers for your otherwise boring keys on your keyboard!  It's $14 for a sheet of removable adhesives called Keycals that will fit one keyboard.  Kind of love this - how many hours a day are you staring at your keyboard/computer on any given day?  Probably a lot more than your cell phone or other item you have a decal … [Read more...]

Comfortable, springy and colorful - I am loving my new pair of Riptide shoes from Nine West ($75).  A brand new shoe from Easy Spirit - they only just became available a few days ago!  You can order them now but they aren't available to ship until tomorrow, April 30th. (No biggie!) Easy Spirit sent me the blue multi (pictured) to test out.  I've … [Read more...]

You know it must be good if my boys are stealing it out of my shower - which happened shortly after I got a sample of Dial's Coconut Body Wash ($4.99) in the mail. It's the smell. You guys have to check this out next time you're in your toiletries aisle at your local drugstore or grocery store.  Not too overpowering at all, it's just a fresh, … [Read more...]

The great thing about the blazer is how much it can change up an outfit.  They are perfect for spring - go blazer, tank and skirt/pants by day and take off the blazer by night for a more casual look. I recently got the Navy Lightweight Wool Blazer from Banana Republic ($198) for a work function.  I paired it with a plain white tee from … [Read more...]

What's not to love about the Happy Chic by Jonathan Adler collection of furniture, decorate accents and home textiles available at JCPenney.com at an affordable price? I'm totally loving these pillows featured in this picture on the right- they would be PERFECT for my living room sofa (same color as the one in the picture!) I found out about … [Read more...]

Over the years, my family has used several products from the fabulous DadGear.  Years ago, DadGear started out of the inspiration to make baby gear that's Dad-friendly. We've all seen our hubbys and other Dads carry the frilly pink diaper bag and had a chuckle out of it.  DadGear makes guy-friendly diaper bag gear. We've used the DadGear … [Read more...]

Last fall, I had hosted a small gathering of friends in my house with Lee Jeans.  Lee Jeans flew out to Philly to fit us in some of their jeans.  I'll be honest - prior to that party, the name "Lee Jeans" immediately took me back to my middle school fashion experiences in the 80s.  I would not have considered Lee Jeans in 2012 for jeans to wear … [Read more...]

Last weekend, one of the better known Mom bloggy conferences - Type A - came to Philly for a day conference! I was thrilled when I heard they'd be in my own hometown stomping grounds so I signed up for the day. Many of my blog friends made a weekend out of it. My schedule has been just too insane to offer up any more time than a day trip into the … [Read more...]

The following is a sponsored post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own! Today's Earth Day! Are you celebrating in any way? I think of Earth Day not so much as a day to celebrate but to consider what we're doing as a family to help sustain and support the earth. We recycle and we try and reuse as much as we can. My Green Resolution is … [Read more...]
