Sweet and Healthy Arts and Crafts Snack

arts and crafts for kids

I’m lucky to have a four-year-old who has a very healthy appetite, unlike her mother- me! This past weekend we were invited to attend a fun event at Children’s Museum of the Arts thanks to Halos! Halos– you know the sweet, juicy, and seedless mandarin snack even folks like me love. It was a day filled with arts and crafts and tasting all the delicious snacks that were dipped with…

Myth Busters Are Officially in New Jersey!

myth busters liberty science museum

You might be a fan of the popular Discovery Channel show Myth Busters and for good reason, where else can you see rumors, internet videos, news, myths, movie scenes and more be validated or debunked? It’s always a fun time trying to see if something we believed for so long such as old wives’ tales are actually true. Seeing it on tv is one thing, but imagine being able to…

What to do to Prevent Lice

how to prevent lice

**Products were given to me for review. All opinions are my own** I never ever got lice, thank the beautiful skies for that because I heard stories and I’ve seen videos of those creepy crawlers infested in hair and it doesn’t look pleasant. One myth I should get out the way, because I once was aloof, if you get lice it doesn’t mean you’re dirty. Although, lice attracts more to…

HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY! ROARING 20’S

roaring 20s birthday theme

I can’t believe it either! As I wrote that title and read it, I still can’t believe I now am an owner MOTHER of a 4-year-old and now 1-year-old. It seems just like yesterday that we all experience Gunner’s birth. Just with any party we had to do a theme party and Gunner has no say. Gunner hasn’t been into anything that he favors in particularly, except his momma and…

11 Month Baby Post Partum Update

post partum baby update

In just a few days my baby is turning 1! I still can’t believe it and so much has happened– well kind of. Gunner still cries, wakes up in the middle of the night, oh, he’s still demanding as ever. Besides that though he’s got a bunch of teeth that sprouted out all at once in the matter of a week. He stands up on his own, hasn’t walked and…

Family Fun Bowling and Etiquette

bowling etiquette

*This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Bowlero Queens and DiMe Media. However, all opinions expressed are my own* I can’t even remember when the last time me and the boyfriend went on a date night, but it was a long long time. Imagine how super-duper ecstatic I was to be invited to the grand opening of Bowlero in Queens– food, drinks, music, arcade and bowling, calls for a…

The Good and Bad About Boogers + Nasal Aspirator

nasal aspirators

Oh the joys of having a kid– middle of the night wake-up calls, dirty diapers, feeding on demand, picking noses and I mean we’d be here all day if I listed it all so we won’t. No one likes when someone is touching their nose, especially when it’s someone else’s finger going up in there. Gunner knows when I get that tissue it means business and before I even go…

**New Nintendo 3DS XL and Mario Party Star Rush game were provided by Nintendo for a review. All opinions are my own** OMG! We’ve been having so much fun playing Mario Party Star Rush, the newest release in the Mario Party gaming series! I will admit, I was a tiny bit apprehensive when we first received the game. I don’t normally dive into a game and find myself WANTING to…

I get to sleep in, eat junk food and binge watch on some Lifetime movies– then reality hits and I remember those days are long gone. I have a kid who I was use to not dealing with for 6 hours, a nice…

DIY Ugly Sweater Christmas Ornament

diy christmas ornament

Another Christmas passing calls for another DIY Christmas ornament. Every year my family makes a Christmas ornament and exchanges them with my boyfriend’s family– a tradition that is one of my favorites, but also one I hate. It’s possible. Trust me. I always admire those who can literally make a desk out of plastic plates and garbage bags, add some jewels and voila they have a working-one-of-a-kind masterpiece. My talents…
