Look No More, The Best Gift for Mom this Mother’s Day is…

Selfie taken at the Sci-Fi Diner, a drive-in theater experience (in the dark!)

Mother’s Day is right around the corner and everyone’s a little stress getting a gift for the woman who does everything for you, the reason you’re living and breathing. Maybe it’s just me, mom of 3, but let me ask you this, does any of the following descriptions fit the mom in your life? Always on the go, shuffling you and your family here and there, grocery shopping, juggling her schedule, your schedule, doctors appointments and so much more Always has her cellphone with her and clutches it like it’s her lifeline Always loses her cellphone, sort of, probably because […]

Better Matters, Switching to FiOS in a Snap!

Quality Streaming a MUST for Potty Time! / Photo by: Suzanne Chan

Once you live in New York City, you become so spoiled by the fast paced, instant gratification of a city that never sleeps.  Only in New York City can you have food delivered to your home 24 hours a day – seriously after the kids are asleep I get cravings for greasy fast food I’d never let them eat, watch a movie at 2AM in the morning (my favorite thing to do when fighting with the hubby – let him wonder where I’ve gone!), have breakfast for dinner, or go clubbing until the sun comes up (not that I do […]

My Big Fat Greek Experience – #PutSomeWindexOnIt

It’s not every day that you get to sit face to face with the lead actors of one of the most relatable movies for moms in 2016. Just last week, that is exactly what Mom Confessionals got to do. Thanks to the wonderful women of @TheMOMS , in conjunction with @Windex and @Instax Fuji Film, I was presented with an exclusive opportunity to preview the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 AND meet two of the loveliest actresses in Hollywood, Nia Vardalos and relative newcomer Elena Kampouris. This is a movie not to be missed this year! My Big Fat […]

Precision Crafted Performance, Acura’s All New 2017 MDX #GNONYIAS16 #GNONYIASAcura

2017_acura_mdx

My husband and I are super excited for the New York International Auto Show this year. It’s been a yearly tradition for us to go and check out this amazing show that fills 4 floors of the Jacob Javits Convention Center with over 1,000 cars and trucks, my “compromise” of a date night, although I secretly love the show. My family is addicted to leasing cars. We own one car, but with young children, it’s always so nice to have a new car on the horizon every couple of years. Tell me you don’t feel the same, my kids are […]

Catch Up with Emmet and Friends in the All New LEGO Movie – 4D A New Adventure

IMG_3929

A little snow wasn’t going to stop my little man and his best girl from catching up with Emmet, Wyldstyle, Unikitty, MetalBeard and Benny at the uber fun LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Westchester. What have they been up to since their blockbuster movie where everything was left AWESOME!? The sequel to the movie won’t hit theaters until 2018 and that’s LONG while away. I won’t spoil the fun, but The LEGO Movie – 4D A New Adventure has made its official debut and is showing at a LEGOLAND Discovery Center near you. Playing several times throughout the day, you don’t want […]

FiOS TV to Go #LifeOnFiOS #Minute50

fios_mobile

It certainly pays to be a FiOS customer. Have you heard the latest and greatest news about the FiOS Mobile app? Starting last month, FiOS Quantum customers can watch (nearly all) their recorded shows while on the go! This is a total game changer for me! I obsessively DVR all my favorite shows. I never get to watch them when they air whether it’s because I’m putting the kids to sleep, or at my school. It’s quite sad when my DVR announces to me that it is almost at capacity because I’m so behind on catching up.  This has all […]

When “We’re Not Ready” because “We Must” #VZWBuzz

GizmoGadget2

My daughter has been asking for a cellphone ever since she laid her hands on my iPhone (at the tender age of 2). At 2 years old, “You’re too little”. At 3 years old, “Still too little!” At 4 years old, “Yep, still too little!” At 5 years old, “What does a 5 year old need a cellphone for?” At 6 years old, “Your aunt bought you an iPad, you’re welcome.” At 7 years old after being told her friends have cellphones, “and if they said to jump off a bridge, would you?” At 8 years old… “You win.” I […]

Educational Gaming With @LeapFrogOfficial #LeapTV #LeapFrogMomSquad

leap

I’ve been reluctant to introduce gaming systems to my kids for the longest time.  Sure they can navigate my smart phone better than me at this point, and even my three-year-old knows how to swipe into whatever app he is interested in playing, but my husband and I really try to limit TV time with our children and video gaming through the TV seemed to be a mind-numbing activity that I was hoping to keep far away from our household. When my five-year-old heard (through the ‘kindergarten grape vine’) about something called #LeapTV, it was all he could talk about. […]
