My Mother’s Day Gift Guide Favorites From One Mama To Another 

12 May

I’m writing this Mother’s Day gift guide to show you a few of my favorite things. It doesn’t mean you have to wait till Mother’s Day to give or receive these things because to me Mother’s Day is everyday. Below are classic gifts that will last for a very long time, except for the food of course and a few favorite movies that I suggest you see. 

1. Armitron Watches. Check out to see what style you like. Ok all for the mesh band this year and I wear it everyday and get lots of compliments. It goes with any outfit and feels great on my skin. Prices are incredible. 

2. Keysocks. These comfortable socks go with me on vacation, are great for lounging around and feels great in flats. Lots of colors to choose from. 

KEYSOCKS are the first smartly designed socks that remains hidden inside pumps, flats, sneakers and moccasins. They pull up to your knee, but have a cutout on the entire top off your foot that makes them invisible inside shoes while still providing comfort, moisture wicking and blister prevention. Available in ultra lightweight and nylon. Check out

3. Godiva. How can you not have chocolate any day of the week? Just walking into any Godiva store you will want one of everything from truffles, chocolate covered strawberries, frozen drinks and lots of varieties of candy gives me that chocolate rush I love. Check out all you can eat on their website or if there is a store located near you head in. The gift wrapping is amazing.

4. Boppy. The new Boppy Multi-use Slipcovered Total Body Pillow is a large one-piece pregnancy pillow designed to provide complete head-to-toe support. The pillow can be used multiple ways to make you and your bump more comfortable. Its unique contoured design supports head, neck, back, hips and tummy with just one pillow. Filled with 100% virgin fiber for just the right support. The 100% cotton slipcover is wipeable for easy cleaning. Both pillow is machine washable. No I’m not pregnant and you don’t have to be to use this pillow. It’s so comfortable my daughter and I take turns using it. It has great support for my back and neck that I need. We love it. Check out for all your needs. 

5. Zac Posen. I can’t even begin to tell you how many handbags I own. I could open a shop. I fell in love with Zac Posen Eartha Iconic Soft Top Handle bags. It’s so chic, clean, sleek and classic and goes with any outfit dressed up or down. Lightweight and can be worn as a crossbody, floral shoulder strap or by the handle. I love the hinge lock flap closure. I treated myself to this beautiful bag and I’m about to purchase another one. Please head to http://www.zacposen for gorgeous styles, colors and prices. 

6. Castello del Poggio Moscato Provincia Di Pavia. If you’re looking for a great wine this Moscato is for you.  Unique sweet and aromatic characteristics. Fruity and very inviting, with intense scents of peaches and exotic fruit. Can be found online by googling or stop into Olive Garden restaurants. My favorite wine. 

7. I would also like to suggest a few movies from Disney. Beauty & The Beast and Born In China. You might need some tissues for Born In China. These movies were great! We sanged, laughed and cried but I would definitely see them again. Check your local theaters to see the schedule. I also want to throw in the Broadway play School Of Rock which was amazing. I wrote a post about the play that you can check for my review. I also want to check out Snatched which I missed the screening for. Looks very funny. 

8. G.H. Cretors Popcorn. End the day with a bowl of yummy popcorn. G.H. Cretors is the perfect snack for at home game night, movie night or any time you want. This artisanal popcorn is made in small batches using only the highest quality ingredients. Delicious flavors ranging in bold craveable favotites.

Mom’s Time Out with Audrey & Vera and Armitron Watches #onewatchmanyfaces 

28 Apr

When was the last time someone told you as a MOM you need a Time Out? Just what kind of Time Out were they referring to? Not the punishment, I mean a time out to go hang with your friends and enjoy great conversation, food, fun and take home an amazing watch from the awesome brand Armitron. Hey, you can put me in that kind of Time Out every week. 

Audrey and Vera my dear close friends thought that’s just what we Mom Bloggers needed and got togtether with watch brand Armitron and threw an amazing Mom’s Time Out early Mother’s Day event. 

As we entered the Armitron Showroom we were greeted with three watches and told to select one. Shut the front door!! Usually swag is handed out at the end of events so this was a treat. My eyes immediately went to the silver mesh watch in the middle. It stood out and I did not own a mesh watch before. It is perfect and even though I have the smallest wrists I like big watches. Of course I had to get it adjusted which they were kind enough to do there. 

The next room we were swept to was filled with all types of food from salmon to quiche, salads, desserts and amazing drinks. There was also a candy station filled with chocolate, chips and seeet treats for us to take home. If kids were allowed this would have been gone in seconds but they kept replenishing because you know us moms weren’t letting chocolate and chips go to waste. Lol. Another treat was a photo booth for our arm candy and a nail station with Jamberry Nails. We had the pleasure of meeting Jenna Von Oy from the television show (Blossom). She played the character (Six). She has two kids and a new book. 

Audrey and Vera welcomed us and talked about the collection from Armitron, the latest in fashion and how your watch can be dressed up or down. There’s so many styles to choose from for women and men like the Adventurer, ProSport, Dress and of course my favorite the Silver Tone Black Dial Watch with Stainless Steel Mesh Band. I love my watch. That’s just some of what Armitron has to offer. To check out more head to their website here:

Spring 2017 Watch Trends:

· Blush/Rose Gold: Perfect for spring, this color has been all over the runways for this season. With rose-gold hardware and blush-colored straps, these watches are easy to pair with any spring outfit.

· Mesh Straps: Metal, mesh straps are growing in popularity in men’s and women’s watches in gold, silver, rose-gold and even black.

· Luggage-Colored Leather Strap Watches: Easy to dress down, leather strap watches are comfortable and easy to pair with casual attire or spring dresses.

· Gold Hardware with Silver Watch Hands/Numbers: More and more watch designers are mixing metals, with gold-framed faces and silver hands and markers. This two-toned look pairs seamlessly with all types of accessories.

· Simple, Large Faces: The boyfriend look has been in with clothing for a while, and now larger, simpler watch faces are becoming popular for women’s styles, too.

Special shout outs to Armitron, Audrey McClelland and Vera Sweeney. Another amazing event. Thank you for everything.

CHARM IT! Design A Charm Contest #charmit

23 Apr

Saturday, April 18th partners CHARM IT! and Crayola held an event at Dylan’s Candy Bar in NYC. It was for their Design-A -Charm Contest. Kids were invited to the event and encouraged to design an original charm for the chance to have it produced as an actual CHARM IT! charm.

It was a packed house and my daughter was very excited to get creative and design a charm. I think she did over ten designs. She loves drawing and I was happy to see her put her skills to good use. Hopefully one of her designs will come to life. 

She’s always been a fan of charms and girly accessories. I loved the way the staff wore the charms for necklaces as well as bracelets. They showed us the winning charms from their last contest. Kids know what they like and it shows in these wonderful charms. 

There was a photo booth for the kids and parents with different charm it props and a cute background. We had fun with that. Cupcakes that looked like one of the charms. Breakfast foods and beverages were also provided. 

These charms were tested in highly accredited labs and are safe. This is a big plus in my book. Here is a list of ways to care for your charms courtesy of CHARM IT!

Follow these basic care tips and enjoy your CHARM IT! collection! 

Remove CHARM IT! before engaging in rigorous activities or sports for safety. 

Remove CHARM IT! before hand-washing, bath and showers and swimming in chlorine pools or salt water. 

Remove CHARM IT! from all pockets before doing laundry. 

Do not clean CHARM IT! with any jewelry cleansers or chemicals intended for precious metal jewelry. 

Do. It wear CHARM IT! immediately after application of body lotions, sunscreen, creams and perfumes. 

The contest hasn’t ended yet. There’s still time to enter. You have till May 6, 2015. To enter head to and download the official entry form and let your kids get their charm skills on. Also check out @Charm_It and @Crayola on Twitter. 

What will your child create?

9 Nov

I was invited to preview Lands End Women’s Spring 2015 Collection. I was excited to see what was in store for the women since I’ve always been a fan of Lands End because of everything they have to offer for the entire family from apparel, outerwear, footwear and home items. This collection is exactly what I’m looking for. Lots of stripes put with khaki or red, white and blue stripes for the 4th of July. Loving the ballet flats, sneakers, paisley tote bags, boat shoes, denim jeans in dark and white, dress shirts with the Lands End logo, polo shirts with printed shirts, floral and cable knit sweaters with shirts, loved the rain coats and the butterfly shorts, beautiful dresses from lace to to floral prints, stripes and amazing neck lines. Accessories a woman could never have enough like the handbags, totes, hats, gloves, scarves and stripe belts. Love the nautical theme look. V-neck sweaters and cardigans with trenches, shorts and sneakers or boat shoes look casual but chic,. The workout clothes colorful and comfortable.whether you’re in a gym, running errands, or bike riding Lands End has the right pieces for you. Lightweight jackets also available.

I own about 3 or 4 Lands End totes but could definitely use more especially with the new colors and styles. I saw at least 5 totes that I want.

I want you to really take a look at the prints in the shorts and dresses. Beautiful. Of course, I loved it all. What do you like?

Basically with Lands End their apparel, outerwear, footwear and home items will never go out of style. My family and I will continue to be fans. I will be sporting a few of the items from this collection on my cruise.

There was also a collection that supported breast cancer called the Pink Thread Project. For more info on that go to their website:

I was invited to Etsy’s Holiday Press Preview 2014 to check out fashion accessories, home and entertaining gift items from Etsy’s top vendors.

The first vendor I met was Chilean jewelry designer Soledad Proano. She launched “Sol del Sur” her metals and textiles jewelry and accessories company. Sol obtained a certificate in metalsmithing and took other design and art courses at Pasadena City College in California, before moving to Brooklyn, NY in the Summer of 2013. All her jewelry is made by hand in her light-filled studio in Bushwick. Sol del Sur jewelry is available locally at independent and museum shops in the US, as well as worldwide through and more recently, at
Take a look at her beautiful pieces below. Guests were given samples of her bracelets and earrings.







The next vendor was Dominique Caron with her skincare line “Caru Skincare Co.” which crafts gentle and effective products from high quality botanical ingredients that are carefully selected for their potency and sustainability. Frustrated by the poor selection of skincare products on the market Dominique Caron took matters into her own hands and started making her own. The scents are amazing. Guests were given samples of her soap to take home. I picked peppermint and the chamomile and honey soaps. Take a look at her products.




The third vendor was Amanda Schwartz, designer of her handbag and accessory line “Two Tickets”. Her passion is to unite form and function, past and present, beauty and durability. She showed us her beautiful collection of color block crossbody bags, clutches, wallet pouch phone cases and fringed key chain tassels. Guests were given a key chain tassel to choose from a variety of colors. Take a look at her bags and accessories below.




Here are the sellers/vendors pages:

Everything was beautiful at the preview. I love decorating and the home decor had amazing pieces. I also loved the entertaining section. If I could put my wish list out now I would ask for everything. Here are a few pictures that I took of my favorite things.












There were also delicious appetizers and drinks.








Here is the link to view the Holiday 2014 digital look book:
My favorite in this look book is The Passenger. Yellows were my favorite color this season and these accessories is on my must have list. I also had to throw in the cute tote bag.
