REVIEW: Ergo Xtra Baby Carrier

IMG_20130910_162440_937

The word on the street has the Ergo Carrier as being the “IT” carrier.  Always being more of a lover of clean lines and the modern, I identified the Ergo Carrier with the hippies.  I never had the urgency to try it as my first two weren’t much of carrier children.  The Little Miss did a stint in a sling, but generally they liked the stroller.  McChubbs often had to sit things out in his Mamaroo or Tiny Love 3-in-1 Rocker while I tended to the two other more active children.  He often cried to be held or just to […]

Checking Out the Revolutionary Olympus OM-D E-M1

FZ+ftsED50macro

If the name itself OM-D E-M1 didn’t sound high tech enough for you, let me tell you, this may be the only camera you’ll ever want to carry.  If you’re a semi-pro or as I like to dub myself, “amateur pro” — we like, even LOVE the big guns but taking it with us every where isn’t the most convenient.  To meet the demand for a more compact sized camera that delivers pro quality images, Olympus debuted earlier this evening at an exclusive press event, the revolutionary OM-D E-M1 and it is a beaut! The OM-D E-M1 is the successor to the Olympus E-5 DSLR , making it their new […]

When you find out for the first time you’re going to be a parent, it can be an exciting time… and also a nerve wracking time too.  The overwhelming senses of responsibility sets in fast.  One of the very first things people do when they find out they are about to become parents is research all about child safety — everything from finding the safest car seat to making their homes safe or “child-proof”. Many parents have come to rely on Safety 1st, a company that  is driven by a single-minded focus of making the world a safer and happier place for […]

Life in the Dreamhouse with Barbie #BarbieIsMoving

IMG_20130825_214515_688

As my family and I contemplate our next chapter in our life, we’ve considered that it might include a new home.  So a bit of the #BarbieIsMoving campaign really resonated with us.  I never had Barbie dolls as a child, and obviously never had a Barbie Dreamhouse… but I ALWAYS wanted one.  We had a neighbor whose grand-daughter had every Barbie and the Dreamhouse to boot.  My sister and I LOVED when she came and visited her grandmother with her Barbie suitcase and everything else Barbie in tow.  Looking back, the 1980’s Barbie Dreamhouse was really something to behold and […]

Mike the Knight at the New York Renaissance Faire

{ written by: Kristen Ryan } The New York Renaissance Faire has always been a go-to event for my family. My husband, two boys and I get a kick out of riding a school bus from the parking lot, exploring the enormous event and walking around among the wenches. The kids love the jousting and the costumes and the pageantry, and I am oddly comfortable with a giant turkey leg in one hand and a stein of grog in the other. This year the Faire invited us to check out the all-new Mike the Knight live show, which will appear […]

Back to School with Staples

IMG_20130821_112106_133

We love Staples!  It’s one of our MUST stops during the back-to-school season.  I love all the bins filled with not just amazing deals, but also amazing and cute selections!  They’ve got you covered with everything from basic supplies to computers.  I recently got schooled on how to select a new computer by their knowledgeable staff.  For a solid notebook for back to school, the HP Pavilion 11 TouchSmart was highly recommended to fit our family’s needs. It’s the most affordable HP touch-enabled notebook and is great for work and play. It’s also super affordable at $399.99.  I was eying […]
