Perfect Party Bites with Sonic Drive-In

wings

Whenever my family and I go on road trips, stops to Sonic are a must!  Until recently, there wasn’t many near us despite all the commercials playing on our TV, almost mocking us with its handcrafted sodas, drinks and classics like their chicken club toaster, tots and onion rings.  It was a real treat to make a stop at Sonic.  So whenever we see one, we always make a stop.  What’s great is they serve their menu the entire day, so you want a Chicken Club Toaster at 9 am?  NOT A PROBLEM! I recently had a chance to bring […]

REVIEW: The Armadillo City

peekaboo

A clever name for the very clever Mamas & Papas Armadillo City!  Yes this mom got a chance to review yet another stroller, and this one is love.  If you’ve been following along, you know that I am all about compact.  The smaller packaging does it for me all the time now.  I simply can’t turn back!  The Armadillo City stroller is in their compact lightweight stroller category.  Coming in at only 15 pounds, it rivals any umbrella stroller.  Geared towards city families, I think it also bodes well for suburban families like my own.  While I definitely could get a […]

DEALS & STEALS: Honest Shampoo + Body Wash

Honest Shampoo + BodyWash

One of my favorite brands is Honest Co.  I simply love it for the kids and have recently gone completely HONEST in our home.  Word on the streets has it that Honest Co products can be found in Target, Nordstroms and even warehouse stores like Costco but I have been a monthly subscriber since the company started.  I’ve found products are still cheaper with a subscription and with so many choices in products, choosing 5 a month is a tough one, making the subscription a no-brainer for our family. Have I considered purchasing at a warehouse store?  Not once, until […]

REVIEW: The Too Smart Joovy Too Fold #joovycool

Joovy TooFold

I’ve tested (played) with my fair share of strollers and after awhile the things that set them apart is few and far between.  Maybe a little difference here and there. It’s a wonder when a stroller truly makes you step back and say, now that is different.  Cue in the Joovy TooFold.   We’ve been longtime fans of Joovy and their beautifully intuitively designed products and the Joovy TooFold doesn’t disappoint.  I don’t mind a stroller that’s a looker and the Joovy TooFold is definitely a looker.  I’ve been stopped by many people asking me which stroller is this, and I’ve […]

The B.O.B. Revolution PRO and Revolution Flex – the Latest and Greatest of B.O.B. Strollers #BOBsays

Bob Revolution Pro

It’s not too far fetched to say that we at MomConfessionals are a bit stroller obsessed. I, for one, am always looking for the best stroller to accommodate my family’s ever changing needs. In my defense, my obsession is validated by the amount of walking that we New Yorkers do on a daily basis. On some levels, the type of stroller we use throughout the day is more important than the cars we drive – because in the city, you pretty much get where you need to go by walking there. When B.O.B. Invited us to come check out two […]

LeSalon NYC – A Holistic Approach to Caring for Your Hair

Final Results

Most often, you will stumble upon an amazing discovery when you walk through the streets of New York, as the city is well known for its hidden treasures. That is why, when I was invited to visit Le Salon  at 310 East 44th Street (between 1st & 2nd), I was happy to stop by and check it out. I will be the first to admit, I am a very ‘stick-with-what-works’ type of girl, and have used the same hair stylist for some time now, so I was slightly nervous to try something new. I will also say that any fears that I […]
