Mother’s Day Gifts from Pottery Barn Kids

May 3, 2021

Well, they’ll think of everything, won’t they? Pottery Barn. Just when I think I’ve gotten all that I can out of them - my storage boxes, bookshelves, glider, play kitchen(!) - Pottery Barn Kids draws me back in. It’s like I don’t want to look at their catalogs anymore. But. I. Can’t. Help. Myself! So, [...]

What the Feeding Tube Diet Leaves You Hungry For

May 1, 2021

Maybe you’ve heard of the latest diet craze? I first heard about it on the news but now have seen countless stories on it. It’s called the K-E diet or more descriptively, the feeding tube diet. And yes. It involves an actual feeding tube. I suppose adding my opinion to the mix won’t really matter [...]

Timeless Trend: Pop of Color

April 29, 2021

I’ve seen it stated it time and time again among mothers that we don’t have time for fashion, and while I can empathize with the lack of time and energy for the intricacies of some looks, I think there are some things that we can all make work. One such look we can all pull of [...]

Investment Pieces: 5 Things You Should Spend Money On

April 27, 2021

As a mother, it’s hard to justify spending a significant amount of money on ourselves. We often will have our children dressed far better than we dress ourselves, which is a shame. I see kids all over the place looking all kinds of fashion forward with their frumpy mama following behind them. This is unsat [...]

Spring Dress-capades

April 24, 2021

I’m a self avowed jeans and tee girl. Seriously, almost every day I wear this. I cannot help myself; it’s an addiction. I know there must be a secret club out there to help us mommy uniform wearing bunch but I have yet to find it…maybe J. Crew or Madewell can sponsor us?!? Oooh, that’d [...]

Pretty As a Picture: Girl’s Summer Dresses

April 23, 2021

Is it bad that I wish these new looks from Giggle would come in my size? I swear, I’d totally wear these adorable dresses for girls if I thought I could. My sister-in-law has a saying: “mutton dresses lamb” for this exact situation. When women (I won’t add ‘of a certain age’) try to dress [...]

Forget Winter White, It’s All About Spring White

April 19, 2021

One of my favorite new fashion icons is Wendy Nguyen. Her Lookbook is always chock full of great fashion ideas, though to be sure, I never look that dressed up in my life. That said, I do always seem to gather good inspiration from her. So, thanks for that Wendy! I’m headed to the mom [...]

What’s in Your Product?

April 19, 2021

I just had a facial at La Petit Rose Spa, thanks to my good friend Michelle, and I feel all glowy and amazing. Only, I’m a little frightened, too. You know that part in a facial where the bright light comes out and your pores get uber-inspected? Well, as Michelle was doing this, she asked [...]

Tribe Changi Travel Wallet For Your Travel Needs

April 16, 2021

Just yesterday, a good friend of mine went to India to visit her parents. So sweet! She took along her whole family, because of course she did - it’s a visit to the grandparents! On a 20 hour ordeal, though. Their first flight was 15 hours alone! Not to mention multiple connections and then a [...]

The Mommy Files: Storing Off-Season Clothing

April 11, 2021

In Maine, we’ve been doing this little weather dance … it will be really warm for a few days, so I’ll dig through the summer clothes to find something to wear. Then it gets cold, so I have to dig back through my sweaters so I don’t freeze to death. Needless to say, it’s made [...]

Mad Men Style: Pieces to Put In Your Wardrobe

March 23, 2021

The hit series Mad Men may be set in the 1960′s but some of the fashion has my attention. In a time where flip-flops and blue jeans rule, I find myself admiring the fashion of days gone by when women dressed for dinner and were presentable when showing up at their child’s school. It’s not [...]

Timeless Trends: Animal Print

March 10, 2021

At one time, I remember thinking animal print was risque. I had a step-mom who wore a dress that was made up entirely of animal print, which might have been ok…but she had drug-store dyed jet black hair (and not the good kind) plus bright red lips to go along with it…and they were more [...]
