Eating + Shopping My Way Through Quarantine

I'm making a list of some cool things that have kept me busy during the quarantine. I've enjoyed more food trucks and car parades than I can imagine. I'm tired of cooking all day but I have loved the time with my family.  Homeschooling started

Westchester Kids

For 8 years, I have tried to keep this blog focused on things just for moms.  There are so many websites and resources for Westchester Families and Westchester Kids so I wanted it to keep it as a space moms, even women without kids, but

Pandemic Parodies

This post needs no explanation or text from me.  I found this artist on Facebook and had to share her work.   If you're a mom, you have read these books over and over and over. I believe she's making one per day, in watercolor.  If

Balcony Ballads in New Rochelle

New Rochelle was the first containment zone in our area in early March. A public battle between the Superintendent of Schools and Governor Cuomo took place, the one-mile radius was issued and it prompted the first school district closing, followed by Tuckahoe, who had a

Communities Dining Together While Staying Apart

There is nothing I love more than a great story, especially when it involves women working with other women to support the businesses in their community.  In this time of serious crisis and uncertainty, it's the little things that get us through. While restaurants are

Fresh Produce Delivery in Westchester

I love the power of the Facebook Moms Groups.   I saw a post a couple of weeks ago about a local company making produce deliveries.  The company, based in Yorktown, apparently supplied restaurants mostly; but when restaurants started to cut back on their weekly orders,

March Happenings

Cooking with Paris Hilton

Bra Shopping with Laura: Fit By Burke

Every January I have my annual mammogram.  It's also the month that I get rid of my old bras and buy myself new ones.   Year after year, I would say the same thing to myself in January.   "This is the last year I am buying

Rent the Runway vs. Nuuly

I buy a LOT of clothes.  As a result, I have a lot of unworn and gently used clothes that I give away.  I have started using clothing rental services in the past few months.  I've decided that I am going to try to "shop

Books, Books & More Books

Books make a great gift.   I know everyone is reading on e-readers, but I think these titles are all good for gifting.  They make good coffee table books or conversation pieces.  I had more, but narrowed it down to my top 10.  Only one fiction
