NYC’s Times Square Gets Cleaned Up by Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle

5

Although we spent New Year’s Eve at a Home Exchange in Utah skiing with my family (a Salt Lake City family exchanged with us), images of New York City (our home town), Times Square, the ball dropping were not far from our minds. Up to this point, we never really think about how Times Square gets cleaned up after a HUGE party like New Year’s Eve in Times Square. All we know is that on January 2nd, when everyone heads back to work and walks through Times Square, not a trace of confetti can be found. Normally, the NYC Department…

I am so bad at decorating! I have this ‘Tis the Season Pinterest Board to help give me ideas because the interior decorating gene simply did not make it down this line of the family tree. So when the holidays come around, I get a little antsy because I just am not sure how turn the apartment into a festive and joyous place. At the recent Momtrends Holiday Event, Marie Ackerman, Vice-President of Education at Teleflora — the online florist where fresh flowers are hand-delivered daily — talked to us about holiday decorating tips and the latest decorating trends. (And a…

Holiday Entertaining Gifts and Trends

It’s so hard to believe that the holiday season is upon us. The smells of fir trees are wafting throughout Whole Foods here in TriBeCa, “A Charlie Brown Christmas” special has been scheduled for December 2nd, and Nicole Feliciano from Momtrends had her annual holiday get-together of influencers and editors. It was held at the Roberta Freymann showroom here in TriBeCa. Roberta Freymann’s passion is fashion and travel which shows through in her specially curated store. Her apparel, home goods and accessories all have a global, exotic sense but with a touch of whimsy and color. Some great gift ideas…

One Kings Lane Sales – Starts Today!

0

I adore, adore, adore One Kings Lane. Their emails are the only ones that I open up every day to see what they have specially curated and put up on their beautiful, Pinterest-worthy site. In the past month, One Kings Lane has been the online store that I’ve bought several times from: I have bought beautiful linen napkins, tea towels and serving platters. I’ve purchased hostess gifts like a beautiful bamboo cutting board and Le Creuset French Oven for a hundred dollars less than what I’ve found in other online shops. So…..as an affiliate of One Kings Lane, I wanted to share…

Kleenex Hand Towels Offers a Cleaner Way to Dry Hands {+ Video!}

1

It’s summer which means you’re hosting a bunch of summer parties and you’re going to even more. So….what happens when you go to the bathroom? Well, I don’t want to know THAT part; I’m more interested in what happens after you wash your hands. We went to a summer party yesterday and the worst part, for me, was when I went to the bathroom, washed my hands then wiped my clean hands on a DAMP CLOTH TOWEL. Which totally skeeves me out. Remember: your hands are only as clean as the towel used to dry them. We were given some Kleenex Hand…

Glass candle, hand soap and hand lotion in the new Blackcurrent Mint scent.

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…

Holiday Crafts with Driscoll Strawberries

4

I do not tout myself as a crafts-making Martha Stewart type. I enjoy doing arts and crafts with my daughters, but I normally don’t create crafts for my home or for our holiday dining table. The crafting/Etsy gene is just not in my DNA. When the team at Driscoll’s Strawberries invited our family to a brunch and an afternoon of holiday berry crafts, I was excited to go out of my comfort zone to create something special for our holiday dining table. I was also excited to share this experience with our eldest daughter because she is truly the crafts-master…

Whenever I do some shopping, I am the person who picks up a store’s circular so that I know what the deals are.  I am a big Duane Reade shopper since there is one on just about every corner in New York City and I love that they are not just a pharmacy, but a one-stop-shopping destination. Duane Reade has officially launched its Happy and Healthy in-store magazine which highlights its promotional items, new brands and lifestyle ideas. For example, they had a column from Dr. Oz discussing Holiday Travel Tips. He gave ideas on how to carry your medication on…

Presenting the First Annual Triple Threat Mommy Holiday Gift Guide for 2012. Below is a list of a few of my favorite things that I have used, wanted, and/or bought and I think they would make great gifts for you or your loved one. For Anyone: L.L. Bean’s Solar Emergency Weather Radio with Hand Crank: We have the version from 2001, but we didn’t use it until Hurricane Sandy, and boy were we lucky to have it. Without this hand-crank radio, we would not have had any idea what was going on during the time we had no electricity. We were…
