    Maritime Aquarium

    Our trip and review We took the kids to Maritime Aquarium for a little day trip. Let’s face it, its not easy to keep them entertained all day, and the LOVE all things Fish related. Oh yea, and SHARKS, as they sing ‘baby shark’ on repeat. There were a lot of fun exhibits to keep them busy. They walked in and immediately saw the seals. Some other favorites were the jellyfish, turtles and sharks. They stayed around to see the shark feeding! For the younger kids, after seeing the exhibits, there is even a play area to run around just incase walking around didn’t tire them out enough yet ;).…

    Organic Baby Food

    Many things change when you become a parent. Priorities change, and things that you didn’t even care about before suddenly become of great importance. I am sure most parents can agree that keeping your baby safe is one of the most important challenges all parents will face. We baby-safe our house, make sure that no dangerous objects are in reach, and start taking a closer look into nutrition.  For my kids, they each had formula at some point, and It was important to make sure that they had a brand that was healthy.   In my opinion, The best formula should be organic, truly organic, exclude all toxins and other chemicals…

    Fall Fun: The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze

    It’s October now so we have officially entered that time of year when we can have fun with all things pumpkin.   So we obviously grabbed our pumpkin spice lattes and went to the pumpkin blaze.   The great Jack O’Lantern Blaze has become a fall tradition for us.  It featured over 7,000 hand-carved, illuminated pumpkins set against the  Van Cortlandt Manor.  You get to walk across a pumpkin bridge, see a pumpkin carousel, and pumpkin haunted houses.  It was family friendly, luckily not too scary for the kids.  They thought it was really cool to see all the different Jack O’lanterns.  They also appreciated all the candy and treats they got…

    Accessory Moment: Belt Bags

    I remember back when I was a kid, I  had a neon pink fanny pack that I thought was really cool.  I guess everything comes full circle eventually because the fanny pack has now re-branded as “the belt bag” and I’m actually pretty into it.  With the kids, I always have way too much stuff to carry around.  I’m obsessed that I can be hands free with my belt bag.  Also I think they are more stylish now.  You can carry your phone and credit card, and thats pretty much all you need.  I picked some of my favorite belt bags below.

    Travel: Aruba Family Trip

    I’ve been going to Aruba since I was a kid, so I was excited to take a family trip there with my two littles. Aruba Family Travel is a lot of fun and we had a great time on our trip. First, I love that the weather is always perfect. Any time i’ve been to Aruba, there is sun the whole time, and this trip was no different. While some islands can be a bit rainy, and you wind up getting stuck indoors, we didn’t have to worry about this in Aruba. It was always hot and sunny and perfect for a beach day. We loved the beaches. We spent…

    Review: The Perfect Pant

    Every day I work to find that balance of looking fashionable and also having clothes that fit my lifestyle.  I want to be stylish, but being comfortable is also important.  On a daily basis, I’m busy working and also chasing after two little kids.  I recently tried “The Perfect Pant” and was really impressed.  First of all, I found the fabric extremely comfortable.  Super soft and had a wide leg fit, running around all day was no issue.  I think the cut of these pants would be really flattering on any body type.  I found these pants super versatile, they can work in both for casual days, or going out. …
