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, […]

The Antibacterial Plush

The Antibacterial Plush

Yes you heard right! Anti-bacterial (and anti-fungal too) baby! I think that is my favorite part about this delicious 9″ plush, amongst many other things. As a green mom I obviously love that it is made from Bamboo, one of the most rapidly renewable plant resources around. Who knew you could weave such a soft and plush toy from Bamboo?! I was so excited when I got this in the mail, it was perfect for my little Ava. Most recently the Elephant has become her favorite animal and word, she says “Ella-fant! Ella-fant!”, not to mention it is “pink!” (her […]

Spring Cleaning…

Spring Cleaning...

Since I’m a mom too, I guess I won’t be going to Cancun for Spring Break anytime soon, although I hear that’s not where they should be going either. So amongst the bill paying, the filing and occasional catch up studying… I decided to do what I’ve been somewhat fearing now since my Toxic Tub post… I don’t know why I’ve been fearing it, but perhaps it might be the ah hah moment where I realize perhaps it might explain many things in my health history. After all it’s not just about what touches and goes into your baby’s skin, […]
