At-Home Spa Day with Panasonic #Snowvember + GIVEAWAY

16

Busy moms, busy parents. What to give them? The gift of “me-time”. A gift certificate to a spa is always nice but then it’s over and done with in a couple of hours. How about giving them the gift of “me-time” that can keep on giving? So, here’s the deal: a massage at a spa can come and go in an hour, or if you’re lucky two-hours; a facial is about 45-minutes and a wax is about 30 minutes. But this season, give your loved ones an at-home spa day with Panasonic products. Panasonic Handheld Massager: So, my husband LOVED trying this…

Review: Dyson Hot and Cool Bladeless Fan for Heating and Cooling

They Dyson Hot and Cool provides the fastest whole room heating in winter and high velocity air to cool you in the summer. It’s one machine for four seasons. It uses the AM05 Air Mutiplier™ technology for bladeless fan heater which provides the fastest whole room heating in the winter months and cooling in the summer. The Dyson Hot and Cool looks tiny but it definitely is powerful and as a mom with young kids, it has family-friendly features that I appreciate. “It’s frustrating when temperatures fluctate in a room — you’re warm one minute, shirvering the next.

Best of StriVectin Beauty Products

0

Ever since I turned the Big 4-0, I’ve decided to fight, kicking and screaming against those terrible wrinkles. I did go to the dermatologist and asked them to write a prescription for Retin-A. I used it for about 3-4 months, but it really is too aggressive for my skin. (I do use Retin-A about once a week.)  But, what I’ve found is that I like using StriVectin products simply because it’s not as tough on my skin and I’ve found a noticeable difference. This post contains affiliate links for an easy shopping experience.  All products combine state-of-the-art anti-aging ingredients with StriVectin’s…

Cordless Vacuuming with the Dyson DC59 Motorhead – Available on QVC

2

We haven’t had a vacuum in over 7 years. We had one that was the right size for our New York City apartment, but it had a cord and had this bag that captured all the disgusting dirt and dust that it sucked up, but when it was full, I had to empty it (which I never did) and buy more bags (which I also never did). It just wasn’t conducive to everyday easy cleaning and vacuuming.  Enter the Dyson DC59 Motorhead vacuum. It has the power of a corded upright vacuum, with ease of being cord-free.  We don’t have a ton of room…

Kishu Charcoal: Plastic-Free Water Filter

0

I have been wanting to go plastic-free with our dishes and glasses for a while. I’ve thrown out the girls’ childish plastic plates (the now use our “adult” ceramic plates) and their plastic glasses (replaced with glass tumblers from One Kings Lane).  The last thing we wanted to do was to have a plastic free water filter. We’ve used a plastic filter for a very, very long time now and it was something that I just haven’t had a chance to change. When The Hubby and I were out for a date, we ate at this restaurant in TriBeCa that…

Product Review: Stonyfield Greek Yogurt

2

Yogurt is a staple in our family’s fridge, especially Stonyfield Greek yogurt.  Stonyfield brand yogurts are my brand of choice when food shopping because they are USDA organic, which is something I try to provide for my family: organic dairy products. They completely obsess over everything they put into their organic yogurt, frozen yogurt and smoothies (my girls’ favorite!) There aren’t any toxic persistent pesticides, artificial hormones, antibiotics and GMOs We eat yogurt anytime during the day — in fact here is when we eat yogurt: 1. For a quick, healthy breakfast; 2. As a great side-snack in the girls’ school lunch;…

{CLOSED} A Family Portrait Session with Jane Goodrich {Giveaway!}

20

It’s been a while since we have had a family portrait session, especially one in our apartment in New York City. I am not one for “studio portraits” because I like the more casual nature of outdoor or on-location photos. I am so glad that I was introduced to Jane Goodrich Photography, who graciously offered us a complimentary family portrait session this past winter. {And you’ll have an opportunity to win a family portrait session with her, too!} Jane was of course professional, but more important, she was FANTASTIC with the girls. In fact, she got along so well them that…
