Three Reasons to Love Club Pilates

BY ERIN I've been taking pilates reformer classes for years.  No matter where I have gone, it involves an extra charge beyond the gym membership, as it's considered private/semi-private group training.  In the past 7-8 years, I have taken these classes at larger gyms such as NYSC,

Lego Parties at Mathnasium

Being the mom of a really girlie girl, I never knew the hours of fun (and quiet) LEGO could provide.  Also never knew that it could (and would) eventually consume my entire first floor.   What started as a shelf for LEGO creations quickly transformed

Cookie Dough….Delivered.

I love structure, schedules and plans.  But I also love being creative and spontaneous, sharing a good find when I want to.  I realized last week that I have been lacking in the "eat" posts and made it a priority for this week.   I've

Apps for Busy Families: iGotThis and Cozi

As parents, we complain that our kids are tech-obsessed and rely too much on their devices, yet we are very much the same.  They spend an excessive amount of time on screens, tablets, connected to wi-fi

Smart Things to Do in NYC

Every Friday night, I look over the topics that we've posted to go out in our e-blast on Saturday morning and I notice that I didn't touch on every single category (eat, shop, play.)  In an ideal world, I would post 3 times each week,

Last month, I was looking at my March calendar and realized that I needed some new and fresh topics.  I needed guest bloggers.   People who would write about topics that women are interested in, related to eating, shopping and playing in and around Westchester.

Shop with #MomsLikeUs at Athleta Scarsdale on 3/10

Mindfulness Matters Training Class for Parents

I've never been the mom to think that anything worthwhile should come just from the school.  Home is the first school and serves as the most influential place where kids learn.  Formal education is only a piece of the puzzle and anything that's worth doing

Things to Read in Your “Spare Time”

"Spare Time."  What a funny expression.  You've read interviews where someone is asked what they do in their spare time.  Who really has spare time?  We'd all do pretty much anything for some of it!  There's even memes about it. I have a notes section on

Brush Calligraphy Workshop

  Between Paint Nite Parties and Adult Coloring Books, it's clear that artistic expression is an outlet for lots of women.  I started following these calligraphy accounts on Instagram recently.  More than I care to admit. I watch the videos and find them soothing to watch

Upcoming Events for Women in Westchester

When Shawna and I redesigned our site late last year, we decided to narrow our topics into three main categories.  Our new site is keeping us more focused and we are happy to post within the following three topics-- eat, shop and play.   Most

Sophie Kinsella Comes to Westchester

I'm so Westchester.  A 30-minute express train could get me into Grand Central with ease, but it seems like such a hassle to go into the city for things.  Plus, I like my car.  The traffic is a headache and the parking is worse.  So

Balducci’s in Scarsdale; Rye Brook Next

My husband is a very modern, forward-thinking guy.  If I had to pick one way that he's traditional (or let's say old-school) it would be in his appetite. He likes a nice dinner when he comes home.  Breakfast is usually on the go each morning

Sweet Treats

One of our main categories is called "eat."   Shawna is the restaurant-goer out of the two of us as she has a far more sophisticated palate than I do.  I have a total of about 25 food items that I eat in restaurants and
