You know how you're looking to tuck a nice blouse into a skirt or pants and you just can't get it to tuck right? Or you tuck it, head to your meeting/event/whatever and find yourself fussing with it the entire time? Enter TUXE Bodywear. I wasn't sure what to think of this at first - TUXE Wear makes high-end body suits, basically. I wondering if … [Read more...]

In honor of National Dog Day yesterday, I wanted to share a quickie about subscription box service BarkBox.com. I signed up the day after we picked up Maisie from the shelter and we got a box last week. Since we're newbie dog owners, I thought this would be a fun way to try out some dog products since everything is new to us! Maybe we'd discover a … [Read more...]

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Restylane Silk. However, the thoughts and opinions are my own.   Last month, I had the pleasure of attending a brunch in honor of Restylane Silk, the new, natural-looking solution for aging, thinning lips. I know Im not alone in this problem, but it was reaffirming to see a room full of beauty … [Read more...]

For the last week, we've been on vacation visiting my parents down in North Carolina. Let me set this story up for you: that's my very tech-savvy family of 4, staying in my parents house with a crazy amount of devices that require fast Wifi. Let me take a count now on how many devices we connect with daily. Hubby: his work laptop. iPad. … [Read more...]

While yes, this is a sponsored post, I'm going to tell you guys the Gods honest truth: Neutrogena is the only sunscreen I use on myself and on my children and that's the way it has been for years. We've tried a lot of sunscreens over the years but the one we've had the most success with is Neutrogena. For starters, Cole (8) used to have really … [Read more...]

Furniture can really change your perception of a room. I am living proof of that with both of my bedroom(2014) and family room (2015)- both of which rooms were redone with Raymour & Flanigan over the course of the last year and a half. The early re-do this year was the family room. And I won't go so far to say that I hated my family room but … [Read more...]

My baby will be starting middle school in less than two weeks. It's hard to believe he's such a big kid now. He's entering middle school and moving school systems so it's a big change for him. In honor of the change, I've been looking into getting him a new backpack. He's had the same L.L. Bean backpack for the last three years and while it's … [Read more...]

It's been a couple of days since I posted. We're currently on vacation so that's part of the distraction but this is my other mega-distraction: I can't help but be distracted by that face!! Her name is Maisie and she will be 12 weeks old on Saturday. We adopted her through a local shelter who rescues dogs from the south who are in … [Read more...]

I brought back a box of Bendastix from NYC last month. Lately they've gotten too-cool-for-school and don't want to play with toys or crafts anymore but these Bendastix were a huge hit. They spent hours playing with these little creative goodies. Depending on the size you buy, Bendastix comes with a bunch of stix in various sizes and shapes, … [Read more...]

Part of my interest in Stitch Fix comes with the intrigue of it all. There's excitement when I get a box on my doorstep and there's that gleam of hope that what's inside will be cute and perfect. Plus, who doesn't love having someone else shop for them? I know I do. Having a personal stylist via Stitch Fix is about as rich for my blood as I'm … [Read more...]
