This past week, Nicole Feliciano of Momtrends invited me a several other influencers to watch a screening of the film, What Maisie Knew, directed by Scott McGhee and David Siegel; starring Julianne Moore, Alexander Skarsgard and featuring the young and amazing Onata Aprile, who plays Maisie. The film is based on of the Henry James novel, What Maisie Knew, first published in 1897. The film is set in modern times in downtown New York City. The story revolves around a bitter custody battle between Susanna, an aging rock star played convincingly by Moore, and her art-dealer husband, Beale, played by…

Arbonne RE9 Advanced Moisture Set Review and Interview with an Arbonne Consultant

1

I love beauty products — especially those that promote healthy skin care. My friend, college buddy and sorority Little Sister — yes, I was in a sorority! — Minal, introduced me to Arbonne products when she became an independent consultant several years ago. Along with being a consultant, she is an occupational therapist and a mom of two very active boys. I actually tried the Arbonne products several years ago when Minal had started and it felt too heavy on my skin, however, this past spring, Minal was very excited for me to try the Arbonne RE9 Advanced Moisture Set (below),…

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…

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…

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…

New Sports Apparel Store for Kids: Rookie USA #RookieUSA {Giveaway}

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…

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.

Pocket Frenz: School Clothes that Help with Separation Anxiety + GIVEAWAY

I know that summer just started, but for some parts of the United States, school starts in August. Some kids suffer through immense separation anxiety and have a hard time going to school and leaving the comforts of their home.

Wishing that there was a way to have clothes with the comforts of home built in, they created Pocket Frenz™ .…
