FOOD FOR THOUGHT: The “Dirty” Secret about Allergies

The Microcosm Within

I was young once. Now, I am a boomer. When I was growing up, I never knew any child with a food allergy. Allergies of any kind seemed rare. Yet now, allergic concerns are frequently encountered. Just a few weeks ago, I was on a flight from Phoenix to Philadelphia. Shortly after the trip began, the flight attendant announced that no nut snacks would be passed out with in-flight beverage service since there was a passenger on the plane with a peanut allergy. After I got over my shock that there might have been any snack at all, I reflected […]

Spring into #SpringKidsStyle with @Gymboree, @JanieandJack, @Crazy8 and @PotteryBarnKids

IMG_3523

Spring is finally here and that can only mean one thing: Its time to bring out the bright colors and fresh, new spring clothing. I for one, love to spend time browsing the isles for some eye catching attire that my children will not only look adorable in but can feel comfortable in as well. Last month I had the chance to get an exclusive sneak peek at the spring collections of several brands such as Janie & Jack, Gymboree, Crazy8 and Pottery Barn Kids, and I couldn’t help but get even more excited for the arrival of spring.

Sesame Street Live – Review & Last Minute Ticket Giveaway!!

IMG_3038

Last weekend my family and I got on a train to New York City to go see Sesame Street Live at Madison Square Garden. While I knew my two-year-old would be thrilled at seeing his favorite characters, Elmo, Cookie Monster and all of their friends, I wasn’t sure how my five-year-old would be able to sit through what he dubbed as “my brothers favorite show”.  Not to my surprise, though, he became just as excited (if not more so) the second he saw the first Sesame Street Live poster at the entrance to MSG. From the moment we entered the […]

5 Reasons to Love Verizon Wireless #VZWBuzz

vzwbuzzlove

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, there’s no better time to move on over to Verizon Wireless.  I never compromise on quality and service for a cheaper deal, but now Verizon’s making price a non-issue with their best ever pricing! Last week Verizon announced price cuts across all their MORE EVERYTHING plans, making now the best time to join the largest and most reliable 4G LTE network! For a limited time, new customers who port-in their wireless number from another carrier and activate their new Verizon smartphone on Edge will receive an additional one-time $100 bill credit per qualified line.

If you haven’t been to the Poconos recently, you just might want to take a visit. It’s most certainly not the Poconos I remembered as a child and Camelback Mountain is beyond amazing! Only 90 minutes away from New York City, they have so much to offer. In the winter you’ve got skiing and snowboarding, snow-tubing and the super fun mountain coaster but in Spring 2015, Camelback opens up their much anticipated Camelback Lodge & Aquatopia Waterpark dubbed to be the largest ski in/ski out indoor waterpark hotel. I recently got a private hardhat tour of the facilities and while […]

Take in the Vista with @CarnivalCruise Lines

CarnivalVista_01_LR

Like many New Yorkers this winter, I am constantly dreaming about getting out of this frigid cold and taking my family to a beautiful and relaxing place. While doing dishes I often catch myself staring out of the kitchen window and can almost picture myself sitting by a pool, admiring the views around me while my kids are having fun and being well taken care of. The busier life gets, the more I know we could really use a get-away. When I heard that Carnival Cruise Lines was unveiling a new ship, I couldn’t help but feel the excitement. My […]
