    Prime Day Picks 2019

    Prime Day has become one of the biggest online shopping events of the year ouside of Black Friday/Cyber Monday, and it’s no wonder, since the retail giant slashes prices site-wide. Last year HB and I jumped on the sale to purchase, site-unseen, one of my favorite appliances in the house: our smart washer (with pedestal washer) and smart dryer. They were called the Kenmore Smart (no longer available on the site) and they’re amazing. Highly recommend buying appliances on amazon.…

    Packing a Toddler for a Longhaul Flight

    – Or, How Not to Lose Your Shit in 10 Hours – Dreaded and feared, the longhaul flight with a toddler. I don’t claim to be an expert on this, because this will be my first attempt, but I have a few qualifications: I have traveled internationally overseas since the age of 6 months straight through into my teens, every year to visit family in Norway I was the oldest of five children spanning a decade in age ranges, so…

    Our Kitchen Makeover

    When our kitchen faucet finally broke (hip hip, hooray!)…I decided to condense the myriad finishes in the kitchen. We had: stainless steel, polished chrome, oil-rubbed bronze, satin nickel….it was like someone had a mad dash through the hardware store ala Supermarket Sweep and grabbed whatever they could find. To reduce confusion, I opted to choose a matte black faucet. Of course, it had to be simpler (our previous Prerinse faucet required an engineering degree to wash your hands). It also…

    Living My Best Skin

    Sponsored Post / Advertorial This weekend I had the absolute pleasure of being able to test drive the Triple Lipid Restorative Facial by SkinCeuticals. I went to Adara Medical Spa where I was greeted by a very amicable receptionist and the entire spa was white, clean and inviting. After the hour-long-plus facial, my skin felt plumped, hydrated, restored, protected, and youthful. I know the importance of lipid layers for the skin’s protection, so it makes sense to my medical mind…

    The New M. Gemi Corsa Boot

    M. Gemi is launching a new Italian-leather, Florence-made boot called the Corsa and it is gooooooorgeoussss. They asked me if I wouldn’t mind trying a pair to review prior to their release and I enthusiastically said yes (I was not compensated and I did not guarantee a review nor did I guarantee any mention or more specifically a positive mention–they shipped a pair of boots and I could either love them or hate them).  Well, the results are in, and I…

    Enzymatic Skin Heroes

    There are a few things that getting older has taught me that is actually of some benefit…(1) Hold out for Mr. Right, not Mr. Right now, (2) if you’re going to drink at a party, alternate with glasses of water, and (3) my skin loves chemical exfoliation. That last tip is something that I’m a bit of a late bloomer in learning, but it has “made all the difference” (thank you Mr. Frost). I wanted to introduce you to a…
