BlogHer Buzz

This week you will see pictures of me standing next to the Jimmy Dean sun or by a giant roll of toilet paper because I’m going to one of the biggest social media conferences of the year: BlogHer. Leading up to this super huge conference, there are a lot of posts, tweets and status updates […]

Be Brand Ready

There are many opportunities for Brands and Bloggers to connect at Blogging conferences. Brands spend big dollars to connect with influential Bloggers at these social media events, and most Bloggers attend such events to show how they may be a good fit for a Brand campaign or ambassadorship. If you are one of the latter, then […]

Learning to Adapt

I knew having another baby would be tough: no sleep, constant breast feeding. I also knew it would suck tenfold having a toddler at the same time. Try to pour apple juice with one hand while a baby is nursing at your boob with the other hand, while a toddler screams he wants pretzels and […]

How to Reduce Diaper Rashes

This post is sponsored by Boudreaux’s Butt Paste®, the effective diaper rash cream that treats and prevents diaper rash with every change. Let’s kick some rash! I have two kids in diapers now. Which means wet sheets, blowouts, leak throughs, at least ten changes a day, and a constant stream of UPS diaper deliveries. Fun […]

No More Free Formula in Massachusetts

My home state of Massachusetts is known as Taxachusetts and Governmentachusetts. The latest is the state banning hospitals from providing free formula to new mothers. It is only the second state to do so. Media outlets claim it is a push by the breastfeeding coalitions to urge breastfeeding, rather than formula feeding, due to the […]

David Yurman Collection at Lux Bond and Green

As a proud owner of David Yurman jewelry, I can attest to its classic, timeless, yet sturdy, beauty. As a Mom to young children, it is always a blessing to be able to wear a necklace, bracelet or earrings, but even more so when it is an amazing luxury brand. So I was honored to be […]

Car Seat Changes | New Rules

When talking to my brother about baby registries last week (he is expecting twins this fall), it reminded me of how much has changed since my son was born just 2.5 years ago. Even though I have the prestige of already wearing the Mom hat, it doesn’t mean I don’t have to keep up with […]

Planes by Byron Barton

If you have a child that loves planes, cars, boats and trains, then you should definitely look into a new app called Planes by Byron Barton. Since I have a two year old boy that somehow has been pre-programmed from birth to have a natural passion for cars, trucks, planes and trains; any product that […]

Planes by Byron Barton (Video Review)

If you have a child between two and six years old, who loves airplanes, boats and cars, you should check out an app called “Planes by Byron Barton.” It is an app for the iPhone, iTouch and iPad. Colors, sounds, music, reading, and recognition are just a few reasons why my son loves the app […]

SnoozeShade Review

Having a baby in the summer is going to be a new experience for me. My first was born in the late fall in New England, so it required blankets and long-sleeve sleepers, and resulted in very few walks. I am expecting the exact opposite with this baby who is due any day now. (Update: […]
