Rock On!

rocklove

{ disclosure : self-purchased, no discount or incentive received } When I saw these teethers,  I had to have them!  Yea I admit, not even for baby.  They were soooo cool looking I completely skipped the whole teether bit.  They fondly reminded me of an old wooden rabbit nesting puzzle I had loved as a child – aged with beauty.  Resembling slightly like pretzels, probably to induce some good teething reflexes out of the babe, they are made from FSC certified cherry wood and finished with all-natural bees wax.   Sold as a set of three ($38) or individually ($17), they come in a […]

REVIEW: Weil Baby Products

weil

{ disclosure : samples received and coupons for free products were given to guests } This past weekend I hosted a Dr. Andrew Weil Baby House Party with some of my pregger and mommy friends.  With all the hype over the BPA controversy — which I hope isn’t a controversy anymore — I was shocked to find out that many new, first time moms and mommies-to-be had no idea about the dangers of BPA!  Yes, I was even disappointed in myself, being their friend, not bringing it up sooner amongst all our talks about breastfeeding and getting ready for baby… how did […]

A few constants

IMG_0477

There are a few constants that you know just always will be.  Things like how much you’ll always love your children or  how you’ll always forget one thing during your vacation packing and $20 will always be $20.  One thing that I can count on with Ava and my nephew is that their love for bubbles will never wane.  They jump for joy for bubbles at school, at birthday parties and go nuts when we’re outdoors for them.   I have found myself wandering Target, Toys R Us and drugstore’s on more than several occasions this year looking for bubble […]

Picnic at Gantry State Park

IMG_0537

I’ve lived my whole life in New York City and often I’m still struck by how things have changed over the years.  Perhaps its the reminder that I’m getting old.  It’s definitely a strange feeling when at times you feel so young and then are reminded as you’re walking down the same streets you walked as a child, with your own child, because your parents, creatures of habit, still live in the same house they’ve lived for the past 30 plus years.  Gone are the mom and pop owned stores and kitschy craft stores that you always wondered how they ever […]

An Enduring Love…

size

With all the hoopla surrounding BPA and other leaching chemicals and its prevalance everywhere it seems in our lives from baby bottles, water bottles to canned goods. It’s been hard to find safe alternatives.  I recently stumbled upon a company called Love Bottle.  What immediately attracted me was the name, but what drew me in was the elegance of the concept.  One of my favorite ideals is “finding beauty in the old”.  Made from recycled glass, these bottles are reusable, customizable and did I say CHIC!  They believe if you feel good when you look at your bottle, you will […]

The Grass is always "Greener"…

The Grass is always "Greener"...

Not to brag or anything, but… I’ve got the plushest lawn this side of… well you get the picture. It was one of the main things I loved about our home… the beautiful well manicured plush green lawn… I pictured our (at the time non-existant) kids running around under a sprinkler and having friends over for a summer time BBQ. Now that that picture has come to life, I’m looking at my lawn in a whole different way. I have to say that I usually have nothing to do with the outside of the house. That is my husband’s domain, […]

sunny days…

sunny days...

Now that summer has officially arrived (I say that sitting in my 90+ degree weather I’m entertaining right now), spring decided to take a pass on us this year. So yes, its another look at what goes onto your skin… I’m sure we can all agree sun safety is important – no if’s, and’s, or but’s about it. If you’re like me, you’re lathering up your child every minute you get… add that up, that’s a LOT of sunscreen your child’s skin is drinking in. Have you bothered to give your bottle a once over?According to the Environmental Working Group, […]
