Aquaphor is turning 90 and They Want You to Join the Celebration! #AquaphorIt

Aquaphor Logo

Aquaphor is hosting its 90th birthday this year and they want you to join in on the celebration! Aquaphor is well known for helping people protect minor cuts and scrapes, solve beauty dilemmas and fix a variety of simple skin woes. I personally like to use Aquaphor on my hands all winter to avoid that winter dryness. To celebrate their 90th, Aquaphor is launching the #AquaphorIt contest which encourages people to share the many moments that the product has helped them (inspired by the ointments recommended uses). Whether you’ve been taking care of your dry hands, lips or you cracked […]

Meet American Girl, Maryellen Larkin!


Today was a dream come true for my daughter as she got a chance to meet, up-close and in-person, the newest American Girl BeForever character, Maryellen Larkin.  Transporting us back to the fabulous 1950’s, it was a great conversation starter and glimpse into the time when her grandparents grew up in.  While my parents were not in the US yet, they identify a lot with that time period and remember poodle skirts, jukeboxes and vintage TV consoles.  For me it brought back fond memories of Grease and old school drive-ins and diners. Ava got a chance to meet Valerie Tripp, […]

5 Tips for Safer Online Shopping #LifeOnFiOS


  Who doesn’t love to shop online these days? It’s so convenient, with a world of products right at your fingertips, quick price comparisons. Shipping and handling is often free and even if it’s not, many times it’s worth the extra few dollars and offset by the fact you don’t have to waste time driving to the store, finding parking, dealing with crowds and long lines. Lately though, every time you turn on the television these days you hear about another security breech and cases of internet fraud.  It’s particularly nerve racking when it’s often names of companies you often shop […]

GIVEAWAY: The Berenstain Bears LIVE! Family Matters the Musical in NYC!!


Do you remember your favorite childhood stories? I can recall countless Berenstain adventures that I loved hearing about at bedtime. My favorite book as a child was Inside Outside Upside Down, an entertaining story about a sneaky bear cub, that I now get to read to my kids. While there are so many new characters out there to impress my children these days, I often find that the classics still keep them engaged and entertained. My childrens’ minds explode with each lesson that they learn through reading. The Berenstain Bears are a large part of our bedtime story telling and the kids love following Brother […]
