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 […]

Google Play Brings #FamilyPlayTime to NYC!

I am avid Google user. I can honestly say I use Google for almost every web search or internet inquiry I have, be it lyrics to a particular song or something related to a discussion I am having. I have even taught my five-year-old how to look things up on Google (which is particularly useful when he has projects that require a bit of research). Google has an endless wealth of information.  I mean, there is a reason why people are often found saying “I can just Google it” when seeking out information about a particular subject of interest. Recently, […]

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. On the day that we […]

Emotional Ups and Downs of ‘Inside Out’ #FandangoFamily

Joy & Sadness

If there is one movie you should take your child to this holiday weekend, let it be Inside Out. My family and I had a chance to see a Director’s Cut during the Disney Social Media Moms Conference in April and while our preview was only 75% of the movie, it gave us so much to think about and my kids were dying to see the rest of it. When we finally got a chance to see Inside Out opening weekend, to say we were left speechless in an understatement.  It had all the beauty and wit that we have […]

My UltraShape Story – Part 2: First Impressions

IMG_0301

If you haven’t read Part I : http://momconfessionals.com/2015/06/skinny-fat-ultrashape-ultrayou/ Before I started my treatment I got a chance to sit down with Dr. Marina Peredo of Skinfluence where I am getting my treatments.  First of all, she’s gorgeous and if you’re going to take skincare advice from anyone, let it be someone you’d want to look like too. If you had to go by looks, I’d say we were in good hands but she’s got the creds to boot too.  In addition to being a board certified Dermatologist, she is also an Associate Clinical Professor at Mount Sinai training physicians on various skincare techniques […]

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 […]
