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.

Tween Bedroom Remodel {Before Pics}

0

We moved into our apartment over seven years ago when we had one daughter and another one on the way. Seven years later, we have a tween and a 7-year old and have accumulated 11 years worth of stuff. Dance trophies, swim medals, Build-a-Bear bears, toys, dolls, stuffed animals, books, books and more books. And everything — I mean everything in between. And it just kept accumulating. We decided to do our tween bedroom remodel because we knew that that we were staying in our New York City apartment and wanted it to be the best apartment it could be.…

Cordless Vacuuming with the Dyson DC59 Motorhead – Available on QVC

3

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…

Cheerios Protein Keeps My Family Going

0

Being a New York City family means we are an active family. The girls are always moving if they aren’t in school:  they go to swim class, dance class, gymnastics, art class and instrumental lessons.  Since we don’t have a backyard of our own, we take advantage of what the city has to offer and make the city our backyard by going on bike rides along the river, going on walks, and hitting every playground in the neighborhood. During the lazy, hazy days summer, one thing they aren’t is: lazy. They go to an all-day dance camp learning jazz, hip-hop,…
