The constant shopping for your tot’s wardrobe can be fun but also daunting at times, so I’ve taken out the guesswork with a roundup of girly summer essentials – heart-embellished sandals, floral appliqués on hats, and pink dresses accented ever so subtly with a silver, glittery sheen.

Okay, he may not have diaper bag at the top of his wish list for Father’s Day, but after the golf club membership and Rolling Stones tickets, you might consider getting him one of these. Trust me, he’ll actually appreciate it because I’m sure he hates to use your emasculating diaper bag, and let’s be … Continue reading “Father’s Day Finds: Diaper Bags for Dad”

Michael Kors Collection Cover Up Dress: Glamour Girl

Perricone MD Cold Plasma Eye: Fountain of Youth

Dr. Perricone’s Cold Plasma eye cream is so popular that it’s always selling out, so I was excited to start testing it a month ago. Truth be told, things didn’t start very well – the minute I opened the little jar, I gagged. It smelled like the codfish liver oil my grandmother used to force … Continue reading “Perricone MD Cold Plasma Eye: Fountain of Youth”


Spring Has Sprung: A Sartorial Springing Into Step

Spring is officially here! Okay, so while yesterday was the true first day of spring, today is the traditional start of my favorite verdant season.
