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…

Review of Barre3 Online Workouts

I was not compensated in any way for this post. I really am a big fan of Barre3! All opinions expressed are mine. I’ve tried so hard to get back into shape and I just cannot get myself to the gym (which is downstairs in our apartment building), or go out running. I’m not a morning person, so it takes a lot for me to wake up, get dressed and…

achoo by Kleenex Cold and Flu Predictor

This is sponsored post. All opinions expressed are always mine. Fall is such a great time of the year. It’s time for apple picking, pumpkin decorating and prepping for Halloween. For a mom, it also means that inevitably, someone in the family is going to get a cold, or worse, the flu. You never know when it’s going to hit, until it is too late. You notice that a couple…

Family Skiing in Utah {Video!}

It’s the heart of winter, which means there are three more school vacations (President’s Day, Winter Break and Spring Break) that are ski-worthy. This past December, we spent our holiday skiing at two great family ski-only mountains in Utah. We are big fans of Home Exchange and exchanged with a Salt Lake City family over the Christmas holiday. We exchanged our New York City apartment and our unlimited Metrocards for…

Family Vacation at the Jersey Shore

I was not monetarily compensated for this post. GM did provide us a car for our trip. All opinions expressed are always mine. As the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy approaches us and we are reminded once again \how Hurricane Sandy wrecked havoc on New York City, Staten Island and the Jersey Shore, my husband and I also remember the vow we took last November:  The summer of 2014 was…

Kleenex Brand Gets the Back-to-School Season Healthy with Sneeze Shield

My daughters school don’t start until September 9th, so as I write this, we are still on the last few days of our summer vacation: enjoying days at the beach, summer sunsets, and slurping down ice cream.  However, the thought of school is not far from my mind. At our school, parents donate classroom supplies: from crayons, tape, disinfecting wipes to tissues, we help defray school and teacher’s costs by…

#LearnwithHomer Back-to-School Twitter Party {PRIZES!}

During the summer, the focus for the girls is to be active, make new friends, learn new sports and travel. The one thing that doesn’t change is reading. Every night before the girls go to sleep, each of them have at least a half hour of reading, by themselves, with a grown-up or a combination of the two. We want to make sure that they don’t fall in to the…

Learn with Homer Educational Reading App Launches!

I knew Learn with Homer worked when my 5-year-old saw a picture of a lioness on the side of a bus and said, “That kind of lion hunts for food and is a carnivore!” I asked her where she had learned that and she exclaimed, “Homer!” with a look of pride on her face. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Learn with Homer for the past several months helping…
