Back to School with Fruit of the Loom

20130806-IMG_1001

As we get ready for Back to School, it brings back many memories of my childhood.  I remember right before school started it was a yearly ritual to get a new backpack as well as starting out fresh with new socks and undergarments — the basics!  Yes, my parents were very practical but it’s a traditional I love to continue and Back to School shopping is always fun for our family.  With my daughter entering 1st grade in September, this year’s Back to School shopping is very special.  With bigger responsibility this coming year, she has had so much fun […]

5 Tips for Study Space Zen

regency

With my daughter entering 1st grade this fall, it’s her first year of serious studying.  I’m a firm believer that having a proper place to study can effect a child’s mindset on school and studying.  That’s why this summer I’ve dedicated my time and money to build my daughter the perfect zen study space. Finding the right space –  A child needs a consistent and set space to study.  Somewhere he/she can keep her school books, notes and study materials all in one place.  The kitchen table may suffice occasionally, but having your own desk and space is essential in […]

Splish Splash! Fun in our own backyard!

IMG_20130629_143247_884

 It’s hard to believe summer is almost over!  That’s not to say there isn’t time left to still enjoy ourselves!  What I have enjoyed most this summer is enjoying all the amazing activities right in our own backyard!  From exploring the Jersey Shore (#STTS) to Coney Island (#ConeyComeback), which have both amazingly bounced back from the storm to fun jaunts like our favorite Bronx Zoo and new favorites like Splish Splash!  I had no idea this little gem was right in our own backyard, Long Island! Just a short trip out to Riverhead, where we’ve gone plenty of times (to […]

IMG_1272

  Traveling is at an all time high as the summer draws to a close and everyone tries to get in their last hurrahs before school starts. As a newly minted mother of 3/4 kids, I know what a challenge traveling can be with children and I’ve got the full gambit from newborn, 3 year old, 6 year old and 9 year old.  It’s all about planning ahead.  Here are some tips that have really saved my sanity. Yes there are plenty of packing lists you can download but none that is personalized to you.  I’ve tried the pre-made lists […]

Android vs iPhone vs Windows OS — Oh My! #VZWBuzz

nokia-lumia928

Over the past few months I’ve had a chance to check out all three options and I have to say, it’s not an easy choice between the 3.  Each have their unique pluses and minuses which leaves each person to find the right OS for them.  So let’s break it down. If you’re a more traditional OS based person, your choice may simply lie on whether or not you’re a Microsoft person or an Apple fan (Windows OS vs iPhone OS).  Although I don’t think it’s just as simple as that.  The iPhone while simplified in its options, does it’s […]

Lets go (Mr. and Mrs.) Mets! #MetsMoms

IMG_0853

I have always said that one of my wishes in life would be to expose my children to as many exciting life experiences as possible. Being a #MetsMom has given me an opportunity to do just that. My three year old son has such a love for baseball that every game we attend, seems to be the best experience of his life. His face lights up the moment we enter Citi Field, and by now he knows all of the players’ names and positions! When we were given the opportunity to see the Mets play the Phillies this past Sunday, […]
