A little over a week ago, I went on a top-secret whirlwind trip to Chicago. I wasn't allowed to share any details about it until so I'm just bursting at the seams to share with you all if you haven't already seen it on my Facebook page. I went to Chicago to witness the first sale of a Red Nose at Walgreens. Not sure what that's about? … [Read more...]

Brighten Things Up Around Your Eyes: Sudden Change Product Review #InstantRetouchwithSuddenChange

Screen Shot 2015-04-20 at 2.24.53 PM

My eye area has always been an issue for me, despite age. Even when I was in college, I specifically remember being susceptible to purple bags and lines around my eyes when I was tired. So considering that look I had at 20, you guys can imagine how things look when I'm tired at 40. Disaster! I have many more reasons to be tired these days … [Read more...]

The Newest Summer Infant Video Monitors

summer infant sharp view

I love video monitors. There I said it. I find them completely and utterly necessary when it comes to kids, and I am not scared to admit that I still use one for my four year old. It's not that I am worried that something will happen to him at this point, but I love to see when he falls asleep, or if he's playing around in his room instead of … [Read more...]

Are you guys as obsessed with Pinterest as I am?  It's my go-to now for a lot of things now, especially recipes.  I see so many gorgeous images and ideas on Pinterest and never do half of them but love the idea of having it all saved somewhere on a board.

We left our house at 6 am to make it to downtown Philadelphia and get to the start line with plenty of time for our race last weekend.  But one of the things I was really nervous about was parking. With thousands of people pouring into the city to park and run, and at a crazy early hour when not every parking garage was open, I was anxious about … [Read more...]

It was only a year ago that I discovered Madewell.  My friend Jen and I had gone into their store one day at the mall and I've been shopping there and loving their clothing line every since. As of this month, Madewell clothes are also now available at Nordstrom!  So great.  I love the style of Madewell clothes - everything's very relaxed and … [Read more...]

Last Minute Easter Goodies at CVS

I picked up some last minute Easter basket goodies at CVS the other day!  That place is a serious one-stop-shop.  I had a prescription to fill so I wandered the aisles and grabbed a few things that I thought would be good time to finish up what's going into my kids baskets. They're not huge on chocolate or candy but it's Easter so you gotta have … [Read more...]

Laundry Room Makeover REVEAL!

IMG_2075.JPG

Remember back in January when I posted about Mud Room Organization?  Our front foyer has been a dumping ground for kids shoes, backpacks and jackets for years and I CAN'T STAND IT. Hubby had started talking about us giving our laundry room some sort of "mud room" functionality - in other words, make the laundry room (the room that's away from … [Read more...]

We've been seeing the bucket bag style purse emerge more lately.  For last week's Fashion Friday, I posted about my new J. Jill Bucket Bag and I am loving using it! What's not to love about the relaxed look with added functionality. Continuing last week's theme, I went to do a search for today's Fashion Friday and to collect a few more picks and … [Read more...]
