Lately, I don't know which end is up and which end is down. Spring has been by far our busiest month both as a family and for me in my business. It's rare that I have any downtime and I'm looking forward to summer while trying to wade my way through the rest of the school year as best I can. One of the things that definitely gets sacrificed when … [Read more...]

This Mossimo Long & Lean Tank Top from Target is my favorite tank top to layer with. I like the long & lean part because it covers and comes down below in a way other tank tops don't. I literally wear it with evvvvverything. This time of year it's the best - I do two of these with a maxi, or I do it under a different tank or tee. It's … [Read more...]

Giada De Laurentiis did two cooking demos for us, using her food and culinary products. I am such a Target fan , plus I worked in production at the food network from 94 to 99 (3 years before she joined the … [Read more...]

We're in the midst of an early summer heat wave here in Philadelphia.  My back deck thermometer read 101 yesterday in the sun which wasn't really true but still tells you that it's pretty damn hot outside. I'm holing away inside of my air-conditioned house as much as I can but of course my daily craze gets me outside pretty often.  The kids have … [Read more...]

This winter, Bravado, who's bras usually tend toward the pricier of the nursing group, began stocking racks at Target, making their brand available to the mainstream. Labeled Basics by Bravado!, its a smaller, less frills line than the fancy Bravado brand bras. Available in only a few "natural" colors and 3 styles: the Emma (Sleep bra), Stella … [Read more...]

So I have to start out by saying I think this coat is even cuter in person. I don't think this photo does the coat justice. The week before I headed off to Disney for the Social Media Moms Conference, I was walking down the aisle at Target when this coat called out to me.  It reminded me of a similar coat my grandmother used to have when I was a … [Read more...]

I can't tell you guys how excited I am about this one.  Although I've been hearing about e.l.f Cosmetics for years (Mariana, one of our first product reviewers first blogged about e.l.f on Mommies with Style back in 2005), I hadn't actually tried any of the product until this summer.  I attended an e.l.f cocktail hour at BlogHer back in July.  … [Read more...]
