Polkadot What Leggings for Girls {+10% and 15% OFF Codes!}

2

Our younger daughter, S, is the ultimate fashionista who marches to her very own stylish drummer. She doesn’t care what people think — she wears what she wants to wear. And that’s why we love her so much. And that is why she loves Polkadot What leggings. Ever since she got her very own pair, she has worn them non-stop with (almost) every outfit. In fact, today she wore her leggings AND wore them to bed; I couldn’t get them off of her! Why does she loves them so much? Because she actually got to “design” her own pair! What…

Click and Improve for Hassle-Free Home Improvement {+15% OFF Your Job!}

There’s been a lot of improvements going on in the Triple Threat Mommy household:  first, I’ve launched a new blog design earlier in the year (what do you think??); I’ve gotten into a great beauty routine to try to keep those dreaded wrinkles at bay; and the biggest thing that we did was have a few face lifts in the apartment. We’ve had a list of things that had to get done in our apartment for about…oh…let’s just say…three years: Before: our disgusting “backsplash”. No matter what cleaner I tried, the oil would not come off! 1. Replace the sink…

I saw these Thursday Friday bags at Lucky Shops last Fall and I fell in love. They were fun, stylish and practical – all the three things I love in a bag…and fashion for that matter! Loving my Moto Together Bag, don’t you??

Healthy Snacking with NatureBox {Plus Coupon Code}

0

We just got a pantry put into our kitchen, which means I now have the room to buy lots and lots of snacks for the family. Like many parents, I try to have on-hand healthy snacks and fruits in the apartment, because if your kids are like my kids, they snack a lot. Did you know that the average American uses up 25% of their calories on snacking? So, if you fill up those calories (and pantry shelves) with something healthy instead of junk, just maybe you can make some great changes to your family’s diet. That’s where NatureBox comes in. NatureBox is…

CLOSED: Pantene Expert AgeDefy and Keratin Repair Launch and {Giveaway}

14

The theme this January continues with looking and feeling young as I head into my forties at the end of the month. So, it was quite timely that I was invited to the Momtrends Pantene Expert Launch Event. Pantene launched their Pantene Expert Collection with two lines: Pantene Expert AgeDefy Shampoo and Conditioner and Pantene Expert Keratin Repair.  The AgeDefy system helps thicken existing hair strands and therefore helps the hair act 10 years younger by restoring bounce, luster and counteracts the signs of aging hair with vitamins and caffeine (guess your hair needs coffee, too!) The Keratin Repair system…

CLOSED: NEW! StriVectin-SH™ Advanced Overnight Resurfacing Serum {Giveaway}

As you know, I’m turning 40 this month. I can’t believe I’m turning 40, my parents can’t believe I’m turning 40, and my one brother, Andrew, can’t stop reminding me that I’m turning 40. I have worked on not looking 40 for a few months by trying (key word here) to eat healthier, working out a bit more and using product that helps soon-to-be-40-year-skin look younger. Luckily, the smart people at StriVectin®, the clinical anti-aging leader, have done it again! On January 18th, they are introducing their latest product, StriVectin-SH™ Advanced Overnight Resurfacing Serum. Like their other serums, it is…

Lands’ End Outerwear is Perfect for Winter Activities and Skiing!

0

We are big Lands End fans — especially for their kids outerwear and boots. Every year, it’s like clock-work at our apartment: every winter, around September or October, I buy the girls’ winter jackets, snow pants, fleece sweaters and boots. In the Spring, it’s time to buy their rain coats and rain boots.  This has happened for 9 years now, since O was a baby. Luckily, Lands End quality is so good that we are able to keep a lot of O’s outerwear and save it for S. Three reasons why we Love Lands End: Quality – We have kept coats…

The Perfect Skinny Jeans for Girls

2

Unlike moms everywhere, I actually don’t do my back-to-school shopping before school starts. I do it a few weeks after school has started. The reason? It’s usually warm here in New York City when school starts, so our girls end up wearing their summer clothes which they are perfectly fine with. But once the weather starts to get cooler, that’s when I start kicking the back-to-school shopping into high gear. The one thing that I always end up shopping for is The Perfect Skinny Jeans for girls. This fall, to my delight, it didn’t take me too long to find…

Our oldest daughter, O, who is 9-years old has always been all about reading and art with a bit of jazz/hip-hop sprinkled in. This past summer, with the Olympics on, and me training for a 5K run, there was a ton of female sports power going on in our household. At her summer camp, she was excited to join the swim team (inspired by Missy Franklin, no doubt). She then was inspired to join our community’s swim team and tried out and made the VARSITY TEAM! You don’t know how happy my husband and I were to Most recently, O…

Like clockwork, after every summer vacation, Christmas vacation, winter recess and spring recess there is always, ALWAYS a case of head lice in my daughters’ classes.

Although New York City Schools don’t start for two more weeks (yay!), my girls are super-excited to see their school friends and get back into a routine. But first thing’s first.
