UGG Boots: Function Over Fashion? or Who Cares, I’m COLD!!

Say what you will about UGG boots, such as “They’re too chunky”, “You’ve got no style” or “Thanks for announcing your inner slobbishness to the world”. I just got back from a River Cruise (the “mature” version of a booze cruise) and I brought my UGG boots for trekking around the ship, going to and from … Continue reading “UGG Boots: Function Over Fashion? or Who Cares, I’m COLD!!”

A Thermal Hot Springs Spa Experience With Omorovicza

I love spas. Everyone loves spas. But specifically, I am obsessed with thermal baths, the mineral qualities that spew from the great earth that nourishes and feeds our cells and souls with energy and life. Imagine submerging yourself in the primal matter that everything on earth is made from, it’s like the stem cells of … Continue reading “A Thermal Hot Springs Spa Experience With Omorovicza”

Specific Instructions for Mother's Day

Specific Instructions for Mother’s Day

I will tell you what moms want for Mother’s Day. I don’t want a spa treatment; I will do that on my own when I need it. Don’t try to buy me an expensive bag. Again, I can manage that myself and get the bag I actually want without pretending to like the one you got me and now can’t return and am stuck with in the wrong color that I’ll never wear. Not to sound ungrateful or anything. This is truth-telling time. I want a day to be left alone to catch up on my shows (Outlander, OMG!) and finish the books that I got at the library a month ago. I don’t want to be left alone on actual Mother’s Day, though. On actual Mother’s Day, I expect my favorite meal served at my favorite restaurant; none of that three-ring circus buffet that happens in a hotel. Rich, if you haven’t made a reservation for Son of a Gun by now, you are so screwed. Their burrata with uni and slivers of mushroom, if only you can bring that to me in bed!!! While I’m watching Outlander.

Mother’s Day Giveaway: Chanel Jumbo Flap Bag from Designer Vault!

For a mom, the best gift on Mother’s Day is the love of her children. But since she hopefully already has that, the next best thing is a Chanel Classic Flap bag (in JUMBO)! In honor of the May 8th holiday, we’ve partnered up with Designer Vault to give away just that – a blue Caviar leather Jumbo in excellent condition (estimated retail value: $5,500). I have my fingers crossed that you’ll win, but if you don’t, you’ll want a back-up present; e-commerce luxury consignment boutique Designer Vault has everything from Chanel bags to jewelry to shoes, all of which are sure to delight the finest lady in your life. Besides, if you do win, you’ll get to keep the gift you bought her (or if you’re a really great son or daughter, she’ll have the most memorable Mother’s Day ever!).

13 Pain-Free, Spooky, Easy, and Fun Halloween Party Ideas

I love Halloween! I have to say, before having kids, Halloween was an afterthought. But now, our entire month is spent planning and doing crafts. I spent this last weekend making treats with my kids and their eight friends (yes, that would make 10 kids making messes!).

The Key Jar: 48 Questions to Ask Your Kids

Everyone knows you should talk to your kids; and not just communicating commands and what they can and cannot do on a daily basis, but real talk. I hear myself sometimes and wonder if my kids view me as their drill sergeant instead of a mom (aren’t they similar??). But how can we start a meaningful dialogue at dinner time, especially after a long day at work when my brain is fried and I have nothing creative left in me? And we all know what a fruitful question, “How was your day?” is (Fine). That is why I had to share The Key Jar from Momastery.
