I'm a SAHM and I have an au pair. People ask me, "Why?" My reply, "Why not?" When I resigned from teaching full time, I never expected that I would be in the house with my kids 24/7/365, waiting for my husband to get home
We're slowly getting back into the routine of weekly posts but we never want to miss the chance to highlight a Westchester Woman. Lauren Ferrara is an aesthetician at Precision Spa in Harrison.
About 18 months ago, I went for a routine brow shaping at
In case you haven't noticed, we took a brief hiatus. At the end of 2017, Shawna and I decided we'd take some time "off" from the blog and resume posts in the new year. A couple of factors contributed to this decision. Shawna's day job
With the Royal Wedding just a few days away, I felt that this week was the perfect time to feature, Westchester's own, Diane Clehane. Well, I still consider her a Westchester woman. I met Diane about 12-13 years ago when she was living in Scarsdale,
As you know, Shawna and I enjoy hosting and attending parties. I usually enjoy being the hostess and Shawna's more the "What can I bring?" partygoer. When we both find something that we love, that suits our very different personality styles, it becomes an
The Kids Cooking Co. was founded on the belief that when we teach our children the fundamentals of cooking and give them the time and space to prepare a meal from whole ingredients, we are gifting them something special. In this fast-paced world we live
It's December 20th and also our final Westchester Woman Wednesday of 2017. I've decided to dedicate this post to my other half, Shawna Lubner. It was nearly a year ago when we came up with this idea over a working lunch at the Scarsdale Metro
Cold weather doesn't mean the end of the Farmers Markets. I'm thrilled that Scarsdale and Pleasantville are moving indoors for the winter months. Scarsdale just started theirs in the fall, just outside the Harwood Building on Boniface Court. They will move inside to
December is such a busy time of year – holiday shopping, social commitments, end-of- year work rushes and parent-teacher conferences – it’s hard to fit anything else in the day, including food shopping, meal planning, and cooking lovely family dinners. Fear not(!) as that’s
Each year, I find it more and more difficult to shop for my almost-tween daughter. She's only 11, but the average eleven-year-old today has wonderful taste, coupled with no concept of a dollar. So they want their big ticket items (electronics, laptops, iPhones, FitBit watches,
Every so often, I post a bunch of links from other bloggers that I think you might enjoy. These all pertain to the holidays so figured now would be a great time to share some great info from those who want to do all the
Each month, we feature a Westchester Woman for our "Westchester Woman Wednesday" series. This month, we've decided to feature CC Benitez, who is relatively new-to-Westchester mom. CC is originally from Oregon (she and Shawna connected instantly) and believe it or not, we found each other

Our February choice for "Westchester Woman Wednesday" is Julianne Steiner. I first met Julianne about 4 years ago when I bought a Groupon for a facial. I never had a real aesthetician, that I saw regularly. I would go to Tranquility Spa every 3-4 months
One of the best finds of late is Mark's Quality Meats. When school begins, I get back to my cooking dinner routine and find myself every September wondering what to make for dinner each night. It's kind of like starting over, getting everyone back on
It seems that every designer has their own version of the military/army jacket for women this season. Some are cuter than others; some more affordable than others. Some feminine, some not. Some long, some short. Some camouflage, some just green. Some adorned with little patches.
I'm a little early this month! It usually takes me until closer to the end of the month to get my act together and get the Westchester Woman Wednesday post up, but for October I wanted it live before this woman's one year work-anniversary.
