Before I actually knew what Stitch Fix was, I saw people buzzing about it on Facebook.  So when I got a little invite from Klout (it's a social media thing for you non-bloggers) to check it out, I hopped on over since my curiosity had been piqued for awhile. Stitch Fix is a monthly online service that involves you having your own personal shopper … [Read more...]

Flavors and cooking are such an important part of our lives. Flavors and use of spices are passed down in the form of recipes over generations. There are certain flavors and tastes that remind me of special times in my life - what about you? Tonight I'm co-hosting a Twitter Party with @classymommy and McCormick, a family tradition and a brand … [Read more...]

The kids and I just watched the original RIO movie for what was my first time (the kids had seen it before) and we loved it! We're all really pumped for RIO 2 to hit theaters soon, so I was excited to see that Avon Naturals has this new line of bath and body products for kids with a RIO 2 theme. The flavors and scents are all tropical and fun … [Read more...]

Only it turns out, SELF was making fun of them and the tutu … [Read more...]

Last week, I went shopping at RUUM for my boys.  I got them a bunch of cute clothes, including these ADORABLE sneakers that look at a lot like Vans but without the price tag. {Canvas Sneaker, $26 at RUUM}  My 10 year old is currently a size 5 kids.  Later in my house, I looked down at the shoes and thought, hey, those look like they would fit … [Read more...]

Today I'm testing out tarte cosmetics’ lights, cameras, splashes 4-in-1 waterproof mascara, $19.  I got it a few days ago at Sephora and I've been excited to try it out.  I'll admit, I'm not much of a mascara connoisseur.  I'm generally happy with most (unless they are unusually clumpy).  Because of that, I don't tend to spend a lot of money on … [Read more...]

Today's Pinspiration was definitely something that inspired me but ended up in a big ol' Pinterest fail.  If you've clicked over thinking you're going to see some cool DIY headbands, they are NOT done my me as you'll see my epic failure on today's post. I was going to try and do something else last minute and then I thought, hey, might as well … [Read more...]

Yay for spring!  It's still feeling pretty winter here in Philly but I'm just psyched it's "officially" spring because hopefully that means warmer weather is on the way.  I definitely have winter makeup that doesn't work in the spring and summer and vice versa summer makeup that doesn't work in cold weather months.  Do you guys? I find I want … [Read more...]

Spring has sprung in The Hundred Acre Woods, wish we were that lucky in the burbs of Philly! My family of five spent last night (which was cold and rainy) all cuddled up and watching Winnie The Pooh: Springtime with Roo. The perfect flick to get the little ones excited for Easter and the big ones (ok, me!!) excited for spring … [Read more...]
