Since this community is all about "mom" I decided to focus on my favorite Spring trends that are easy to achieve and mom friendly. I love a statement necklace as much as the next girl, but holding a slobbery six month old for a good part of the day, I am saving pretty baubles for a night on the town sans kids. Below are some trends that you can take to your everyday life as a busy mom and of course, can carry over into kiddie free time too! Hope you enjoy the trend forecast and if you…Continue
Did someone say Spring? While the weather may not have turned spring-like just yet, school Spring Break is just around the corner. Time to get planning! Since making a big escape isn't always possible, lets talk Staycations. Just because you may not be packing your bags and hopping on a plane (hello, have you seen the price of air fare these days?) doesn't…Continue
You can't deny it. Today's youth are incredibly techno savvy and wired to be mobile. My 7 year old has a better command of the iPad than most adults do, and my 10 year old knows the ins and outs of Instagram better than one its developers.
But the big questions is, "Does being tech savvy mean children are ready to handle the responsibility of social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram?
Most social media sites such as Facebook…Continue
I’ve been blessed with some much needed downtime with my family before a hectic travel schedule this spring. I like to use the time I’m not traveling to organize my home so that it runs efficiently when life gets crazy. Right after the holidays is the perfect time to take a step back and organize your home to start the New Year off on the right foot.
I’ve been searching for some clever ways to organize around my house, repurposing some items I have laying around already, and…Continue

So everyone wants to be fit, and fabulous. All moms want energy, great skin, hair and a bikini bod. Remember this: If it was easy, everyone would be fit and fabulous. It takes work, preparation and a little bit of time. It takes a schedule, patience, and support. If you want to create a healthy lifestyle, read on....
So...what is a healthy lifestyle? Clean eating? Running a 5K? Taking sugar out of your diet? A healthy lifestyle is what you want it to be. But I am…Continue
A few years ago, I started a "Valentines Mailbox" tradition with my kids. I picked up small metal mailboxes and decorated them with their initials. Then, each day from February 1st through Valentines Day, my children wake up to a small treat from me (think: lollipops, a pack of bubble gum, candy in conversation heart boxes, valentines day pencils, and--of course--a Valentines Day scratch off "lottery" ticket for the big day!) They get so excited every morning when they see the flags…Continue
Avocados are not only delicious, but they are a great source of nutrition as they contain over 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. Avocados sometimes get a bad rep because of their high calorie count, but they are a source of "good' fat and might even help you lose weight by helping you feel full and increasing metabolism. They're great for babies and kids as well as they're a superfood that is easy to mash and eat-perfect for early eaters!
Sometimes buying the correct avocado…Continue
There are a gazillion baby items out there, and hundreds introduced every year (and lauded or panned by moms everywhere). I’d venture to say Sophie the Giraffe (the world’s most expensive dog-toy-marketed-to-parents-but-kids-worship, $22) and the Boppy are on most people’s list – from new moms to moms with 4 kids. (Boppy pillows cost $30-$40, and you can buy additional covers to match your décor, and they aren’t just for breast-feeding moms anymore! Babies love to lay against them, sit…Continue
