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!

IMG_1568

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, […]

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

BerenstainBears

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 […]

Mom Trends Back to School Essentials Guide

Momtrends Back to School Bash - Matilda Jane Clothing Fall 2015 Collection

Hard to believe we’re already thinking about Back to School, but thanks to Momtrends I am feeling really quite prepared instead of my usual frantically last minute overwhelmed.  They really thought of everything from the perfect back to school outfits from Matilda Jane Clothing to essentials and staples like Mabel’s Labels and Stride Rite shoes. While my daughter is a prep school kid who wears uniforms every day, once a month she get’s to “DRESS DOWN” and as we all know, it really means “DRESS UP”.  She was loving the Fall Collection from Matilda Jane Clothing and being one of the […]

The @BronxZoo Children’s Zoo is Back! #NYisWild

Going to the zoo is always an adventurous experience for my kids. Being up close and personal with all of those wild animals that reside so close to home is a sight to see. My kids are always excited to take a trip to the Bronx Zoo, and now that the Children’s Zoo has re-opened it’s doors, there is even more to look forward to. The Children’s Zoo, located within the Bronx Zoo, allows even the littlest animal fans to get so close to so many unique animals that they can literally reach out and touch them.

Call Me Mom BUD (Baby Under Development)!

8F5CD7F5-EE59-410C-874A-44A90FA2D742

One of my dearest friends just found out she is pregnant for the very first time. I am so excited for her to embark on this journey to parenthood.  Just like any first time parent, she’s incredibly nervous and excited at the same time. She shared her news almost immediately, just shy of 5 weeks into it and I silently wished she hadn’t so soon as all the painful memories of my losses came rushing back to me. I know too much. I had to remind myself of the excitement I felt when Vin and I first found out we […]
