The World's Purest Baby Wipes Are at Walgreens

  So many unexpected things happen when you're a parent.  It's like living on a roller coaster.  But I'm up for the ride no matter what.  My kids are everything to me. I don't know how many times I have rushed to Walgreens for an emergency item. Whether it's medicine for my family for a cold or a flu, or something for the kids, like bandaids, neosporin or saline.  They even have baby formula there! Thank God Walgreens has long hours.  Once you're there it's easy to find that baby isle.   Walgreens is not the "baby depot", so I might not find my favorite brand of diapers in bulk, but it is nice to know that they carry the amazing Water Wipes.  Yes, the worlds purest baby wipes are …

Travalo and Bright Pink Partner For Breast Cancer Awareness

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.   It's going to be a busy month!  I know that I have many people in my life and family that have been affected by breast cancer and awareness and support is key to beating it. For the month of October there is a Breast Cancer Awareness initiative with Travalo and BrightPink.  Travalo, the leader in travel fragrance options, will donate 25% of all pink model sales of the Excel, Classic HD and Milano models to BrightPink. BrightPink is the only national non-profit organization focused on prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women. Travalo is thrilled to support such incredible efforts.

Brooklyn Beans Fuhgeddaboutit Coffee Single-cup coffee for Keurig K-Cup Brewers

  I am a coffee fanatic and love all kinds of coffee but in the morning I need coffee with a kick.  I have two and four-year old boys and I need to get going at six am!  I can't do anything without my first cup of coffee.  I mean, don't talk to me, you'll get the hand. The first coffee of the day is the most important.  If it doesn't get me going and satisfy me then I'm trying to catch up all day.  My second cup is usually medium or mild roast and then by four I'm ready for a kicker again. If you want a kicker, like me....a coffee that's likely to put hairs on your chest (according to my mom) then fuhgeddaboudit! Just so you …

Follow Your Heart to Disney On Ice South Florida

  I've never been to Disney On Ice.  But I figured it if it was anything like Disney, I'd like it.  If Disney is the happiest place on earth, Disney On Ice would be like the happiest place on earth on ice.     We were invited to the Disney On Ice VIP opening night party and got to meet Mickey and Minnie on September 15th at the BB&T Center.  There are more shows on the 16th-18.     We met up with Essentially Erika and her boys .  They have so much fun together!   The VIP party was a taste what was to come, filled with excited princesses, Queen Elsa's, and Snowwhite's.     I have two boys, ages 2 and almost 5 and they are all boy.  They've seen Frozen and eh, well it …

Five Things I Thought I'd Never Say Out Loud To My Boys

Five Things I Thought I'd Never Say Out Loud To My Boys

  If you asked me twenty years ago if I was going to be married with kids one day, I probably would have accidentally spit up my Baileys on the rocks all over you.   Back then I didn't have great manners but even a model can throw up her drink with grace.     I was brought up by a British mother who took pride in herself and our family on having manners.  It didn't take her long to realize that there was more Greek in me (my father) than British, and that I would not be having tea and crumpets every day but I'd rather dig into a Gyro using only my hands and my teeth as tools. So when I had children, I was grateful to be given …

Shop at the Festival Flea Market to Get All Your Shopping Done In One Place

  How would you feel about shopping in a place where you could find everything you needed, from gifts to clothing, your hair done, massage, even fresh fish and fruit and vegetables?  And you got to spend a free dollar off every five dollars you spend?     Well, I used to visit flea markets all the time in California but they would come for a week and leave.  What if a flea market was accessible to you all the time?  Festival Flea Market is that place!  It has been open for twenty-five years and has 300-500 vendors.     They have so much to offer;  2 luggage stores, cosmetic stores, clothing stores, a farmers market, fresh fish counter, and so much more!

Back To School in Style with Osh Kosh B'Gosh

  This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of Oshkosh B’gosh; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. The summer is never over in Florida, but when it's time to go back to school my kids sense of style definitely changes.  Living in pajamas has taken a back seat and "what to wear today" becomes one of the first questions out of my son's mouth. I try to grab his clothes for the day while he's not looking, but when your almost five, this is considered complete disrespect.  As soon as he sees what I have in my hands, he falls to the floor, hands up, and dramatically says, "No! I am not wearing that today!  I want long sleeves!" I tell him it's too …

20 Reasons Why My Son Cries

  I was making breakfast for my three year old this morning.  Everything was on track. The baby was in his high chair eating cheerios so happily and I was sipping on my coffee.  I give him two choices and today he picked peanut butter on toast. When I brought him the plate with toast and set it down in front of him, he started hysterically crying. "What's wrong?" I said. He mumbled through the  tears throwing his arms up in the air like the world was coming to an end.  And it was! Finally, I got him to calm down enough so that I could understand him. "I want the toast big! I don't want it cut!" he cried. Are you serious? Your crying because I cut the toast in half? …
