Why I Love Taylor Swift

I absolutely love Taylor Swift.  I have also loved Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez over the years, mainly because I think they are positive females for the most part.  None have had perfect lives; some have had mental health issues and/or addiction issues. 

Westchester Woman Wednesday: Meet Leslie Josel

This month's Westchester Woman Wednesday is Leslie Josel.  She's quite possibly one of my most incredible finds here in Westchester, and she's not even from my usual type of eat/shop/play categories.  She fits more into my "mom life" category and she's someone I had to

Top 10 for April

Fogo de Chão Brazilian Steakhouse

My Experience with Botox & Fillers

Last month, I posted info about a new medical spa opening up in Westchester.  Here's the link to that article.  Today I am going to follow up and give a full review of my experience with botox and fillers at Verve Medical Cosmetics in Irvington. Truth

The State of College Admissions

Earlier this year, I welcomed a guest blogger to my site. I generally prefer to have things written in my own voice, but when I step out of my lane and want to offer something that I think a lot of readers would want, I

Ten Things You Should Know About

I’m very focused while being very scattered. Really I am. I have a million ideas of things to write and people asking me to post or share things all the time.  Recently, I have been completely unable to even respond to so many of the

Guest Blogger: Daniel Starling

I have a guest blogger this month.  I don't usually like to have anyone else's "voice" on my site but when the person makes SO much sense at the absolute perfect time (my daughter is a freshman in high school) I have to give them

Top 10 Finds of January 2021

So many things come across my email during the course of a month.  I don't get to post everything, whether it's an invitation, a press release or a sponsorship/partnership email.  The things that I do post are things that I find the time for because

Holiday Boxes for Valentine’s Day

Westchester Woman Wednesday: Meet Sara Davidson Johns

Top Five Picture Book Recommendations

Since I posted my top book picks, I decided I needed some titles for kids too. As a former teacher, I know hundreds of titles and themes/lessons to accompany them. I've learned a lot along the way with my own kids too- but there's nothing

My Top 10 Books for 2020. Please buy them in stores!

When I published my Books, Books & More Books List in 2019, I had no idea that the devastation of 2020 was around the corner.  In late 2019, small independent book stores were likely hurting due to online competition. Looking back, I shared a list

Holiday Gift Guide 2020

Last year I put together a Holiday Gift Guide but I wished I had done it sooner than I did. I put a note on my calendar on 10/31/20, reminding myself to start the list earlier and publish early in November so here it is. 1.
