The other night while I was enjoying a girls night in, my girlfriends were practically pushing each other out of reach of the candy corn bowl. Seriously. They apparently are all addicted to candy corn! I think I’m missing something. Do you know what is in candy corn? Not much…sugar, corn syrup and

Recently I was shopping at L’Occitane (one of my favorite stores aside from Kiehl’s for lotions and potions) and was talked into buying their Verbena candle. It was like the guy could smell “sucker” on me and all he really needed to do was put the candle in my hand. I’m not a big candle [...]

We’ve started a new tradition in our family and it’s going so well I thought I’d share. It’s not the date night like you think it is. Every Friday night, we feed the girls a little early but don’t eat with them (on other nights we have a family dinner, though I use the term [...]

Define your fashion! I was recently asked to name the top 5 women whose style I admire and I have to admit it - I was stumped. I don’t think of such things when I’m out buying clothes - I usually just look through the sale rack, find a size that is in the vicinity [...]

Just as I’m starting to feed my baby her first foods, I saw that Cooking Light has a new cookbook that is their guide to cooking healthy meals for your baby and toddler. I’m so excited! It can be stressful to go from mother’s milk (or formula) to solids. And overwhelming. All those new considerations [...]

I just got my J.Crew catalog and fell in love with their version of the infinity scarf. They call it a snood which I can only imagine is a snarky way to combine the words snugly, soft hood. Silly name aside, isn’t it cozy and chic? I love the

I know it’s unreasonable to think a 3 year old can remember to hang her coat up upon entering the house, but I have high hopes. I recently installed coat hooks in our coat closet so that she has a special place, just her height, so that she can do it herself. She’s constantly wanting [...]

With Halloween almost upon us, you might like to know about a hair gel for babies (and adults with super sensitive skin). It’s called Le Baby and the hair gel is hypoallergenic and specifically made with no harsh chemicals or sulfates. So if you’ve got dracula, fairies, or a mini-rock star to dress, check Le [...]

I hesitate to post about Pajama Jeans because they are just plain ridiculous. Imagine combining sweatpants and jeans (or, as the name indicates, pajamas and jeans). Half of me wants to roll my eyes with contempt and say “WTF - who would wear these!?!” Sadly, the other half honestly thinks that they’d be wicked comfy [...]

Halloween is almost here - can you believe? I cannot! In a state of panic the other night, in the middle of the night, I went online to order a costume because I knew that I would not think of it again until the big day was here. So, check - that’s done. But, as [...]

I’m of the mindset that it’s never too early to read to your kid - in fact, we started the habit when our first was only a few days old. Of course, she quickly tired of the morning newspaper (well, tired of hearing it read to her, she did NOT tire of grabbing it, ripping [...]
