Beauty Products for Spring

  Did someone say spring?  You wouldn’t think its just around the corner  with the crazy amounts of snow dropping around the country but it its!  And, nows the time to start preparing. L’Oréal Paris unveiled its spring/summer haircare, skincare and beauty products at a recent brunch in Miami (no snow here!).  I had a […]

[Review] Is the Kik App Tween Appropriate?

  My tween daughter has been chasing us around for months begging to download the Kik app on the old iPhone she inherited from my husband. Kik Messengers is a free text messaging app for smartphones. If you ask my daughter, EVERY tween has it – except her of course! While I haven’t conducted a […]

You Can Look Like Sofia Vergara Too – Sort of!

Would you believe it if I told you that Sofia Vergara and I wore the SAME thing yesterday?  Believe it.  It’s true.  While she was walking down the red carpet at the Golden Globes and I was chasing after three kids, we were wearing the same thing.  No, I wasn’t reviewing fifth grade math with […]

DIY Holiday Nail Art

I’m absolutely in LOVE this holiday season with CoverGirl’s Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Lasting Love (red hue) and Golden Opportunity (gold).  I’m not a huge fan of red nail polish but this one has really grown on me.  And after our interview with celebrity nail artist Mar y Sol, I’ve been inspired to […]

App Review: Brush of Truth

One thing I find in common across this current ‘tween’ generation is their constant need for entertainment! The gadgets that they’re growing up around- computers, smart phones, tablets, gaming systems, etc makes them crave something to do at all times. As a mom I dislike simply allowing them to play a game for the sake […]

Nail Art Tips from Celebrity Nail Stylist Mar y Sol

One of my favorite pass times with my tween daughter Maddy is doing our nails together.  She is constantly bouncing between school, after-school and weekend sports and hanging out with friends so I cherish the moments that we spend together.  Plus, it gives us time to do a “girly thing” just the two of us. […]

Sofia Vergara’s Emmy Look Can Be Yours

  Sofia Vergara’s look at the 2012 Emmy Award’s was muy caliente!  While many of us moms can’t pull off the dress, we can at least get a piece of the glam by replicating the caramel makeup look.  Sofia’s make-up artist shared the latest and classic CoverGirl products and step-by-step techniques.  Here’s how she did […]
