Big Apple BBQ and JCPenney’s American Living

0

We were so excited to be invited this past weekend to the Big Apple BBQ  as guests of JCPenney’s American Living.  The Big Apple BBQ brings together the country’s top pitmasters who cook up their award-winning food for over a 100,000 barbecue enthusiasts in New York City’s Madison Square Park. We had a packed day: I had my summer class until 3:00 pm, followed by the Big Apple BBQ, then off to a wedding in New Jersey. Although the weather called for some rain, there was no way that The Hubby was going to pass up on some yummy BBQ.  He made sure that he and…

Lice Prevention Hair Care Products

0

Now that I have two kids in school: nursery and elementary, I’ve started to see a pattern in the peaks and valleys of lice issues in school. Lice seems to be most prominent in September right when school starts — after everyone is back from camp, and vacations — or right after winter or spring breaks. With spring break ending for the public school set, I wanted to offer up a few hair options for lice prevention. Fairy Tales Rosemary Repel Shampoo, Conditioner  and Leave In Conditioning Spray:  This shampoo, conditioner and leave-in spray uses all natural and all organic ingredients. I think…

Product Review: Fit Flop Sandals

0

Like many New York City families, we have a rule that we take off our shoes before we enter our apartment.  There are many reasons why some people to do this: whether its cultural, cleanliness or clamoring to shed the outside world once you get home.  Our reason is simple:  our little girls play on our floor, they draw on our floor (well not directly on it), they put puzzles together on the floor, they tumble on the floor and when they are really really tired, they just lie on the floor. For many years, I went barefoot once I…

Product Review: Kushyfoot Socks at Duane Reade

0

I was not compensated for this post. All opinions and recommendations expressed herein are my own. My newest obsession isn’t sexy or fashionable, but it’s comfortable and you can find it basically on every corner.  It’s the Kushyfoot sock and you can find the Kushyfoot collection at every Duane Read – and if you live in the NYC’s Financial District, there’s eight Duane Reade’s south of Fulton and east of Broadway. I bought my first pair of Kushyfoot socks and tights about a month ago. I wanted to wear a dress the next week at work, but did not have…

Mani/Pedi Review: Spring Nail Place on Fulton Street

0

The last time I wrote it was still cold and I was touting SpaWeek in the middle of February.  Well, six months later, it’s August and I’ve decided that I am going to write some short reviews on the three nail places that I go to.  Today’s review is the $20 mani/pedi special at the Spring Nail Salon on Fulton Street.  I went this past Sunday around 4:00.  The place was busy, but they were able to see me right away.  I decide to go with my new color of the summer: OPI’s Suzi Skiis in the Pyrenees.  Love the…

Warm Clothes at Tent and Trails on Park Place!

0

Now that we’ve become fans of a winter sport (ice skating – read below), we’ve had to find some warm clothes – fast.  We usually get our warm weather gear from Lands End,  so we were set with warm coats, mittens and even snow pants, but from what I remember from skiing, you need a good pair of warm socks to help keep you going for hours either in the ice skating rink or on the ski slopes. Olivia and I first went to Modell’s on Broadway – no such luck.  I asked my husband if there was any place…

Just a little hit list for all of you who have birthday parties every weekend.  We have two upcoming.  Where to find presents downtown?  Here you go: Century 21 – has a hit or miss selection of toys downstairs (enter by Ann Street and go straight down the escalators and make a left).  You can get some good Hello Kitty items, Hannah Montana and Doug & Melissa items, all for a reasonable price.  You just have to get there early or fight the hordes of tourists. Boomerang Toys Tribeca and Winter Garden – always a great destination for toys for…
