Disneyland Eats

pretzel

While it’s all about the rides and attractions for the kids, it’s all about the food for me.  Unlike any other theme park, Disney does much more than the average pizza and hot dog meal.  Some of the top rated meals can be had at Disneyland. Let’s start with the iconic Disney basics.    DOLE WHIP.  It’s what dreams are made of.  One of the most talked about treats at Disney (land and World) is the Dole Whip.  There’s a cult following.  Just a glance at the lines, you know you’ve hit the jackpot.  They even have an app to […]

The Art of Seduction #ArtMuseNY

Met_Kids_002

There are days I miss the arts so much.  It was such a huge part of my life at one point.  I remember living at the museums in high school and college.  Even when I was away at school, every time I was home involved a trip to the MET, MoMA.  Even over the years I loved visits to the Getty, Kunsthalle Dusseldorf.  Some where over the years, the luxury of a day at the museum was lost.  My husband also was not a huge fan of the arts, while he could appreciate a beautiful painting, he didn’t like contemporary […]

Hydrating your Life #OTCSafety

I am not sure there is anything more than I am more familiar with than dry skin.  I have been battling it my entire life.  It’s funny despite how easy it is to manage, many of us just don’t take the few simple and logical steps to keeping our skin healthy and supple.  The winter can be particularly brutal on even the best of skin. The first and most basic of skin hydration is to drink lots of water.  It’s amazing how I can drink 2 liters of water at work in a blink and yet when I am home, […]

Cutting the Cord for Good with Dyson #cutthecord

dyson

Last week I attended a press preview of the new  DC59, DC65 and the new generation of Air Multipliers.  As always Dyson never disappoints.  I have been a longtime Dyson consumer.  In fact, the people at Dyson had a kick when I told them I was still using both the DC14 Animal and the DC07, first generation Dysons.  Yep, they are still alive and kicking.  While I have been wanting an upgrade FOREVER, I my husband, couldn’t justify the purchase since they still were in excellent shape.  Even with a handle that is broken, my DC14 Animal still vacuums like a dream.  I’m not […]

Celebrating the Year of Possibilities #VZWBuzz

campaign-lunar-bag-192x211

While I am an American born Chinese with weak ties to my heritage, I hold dearly the values and traditions that I do know and have been blessed to share in, albeit it, some that are a blended Americanized version.  All of these I have been so happy to share with my children.  I think this is such a great time for my kids to be growing up in.  Every where around us, everyone is embracing and celebrating each other’s beautiful heritage and culture.  I thought it was pretty awesome when I read an article on DeBlasio’s wanting the Lunar […]

JCPenney’s New Year #newyou

photo 4

When I got the invitation to jump start my fitness goals for the New year I was very excited. Who wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to be invited to participate in a dance workout that was taught by Karina Smirnoff, from Dancing With the Stars?  But honestly, I was also very intimidated. I have been out of shape since the birth of my second child (over a year ago), and the pounds haven’t come off as easily as I would have liked. Upon my arrival to the ‘dance studio’, and being surrounded by so many beautiful woman with toned bodies […]

New Year and a #NewYou with @JCPenney

8R5A1817

Sometimes you just need a kick in the butt!  My husband has been pushing me to go to the gym.  Before everyone gets in an uproar, it’s not that he was thinking I’m fat, rather just out of shape.  I was always tired, unable to do much.  My muscles were always so tight.  So a little gym probably wouldn’t hurt.  It even might make me more limber and tone.  With Luca being our last, I could no longer hide behind the baby excuse.  While I’m definitely no cow, it still hurt to look in the mirror.  3 cesarean sections did […]

Disney on Ice: 100 years of Magic

photo 2

I was lucky enough to be able to take my 3 year old son and his best friend (a stand in for his brother who was home sick) to their first ever Disney on Ice Experience last week. We were at opening night for the production at Nassau Coliseum, in Long Island, NY. Needless to say, Disney on Ice Celebrates 100 Years of Magic, was by far, their greatest show yet! The kids were amazed the moment they set foot in the arena, as there was so much to see and do before you even got to your seats. There […]
