June is a crazy month for everyone. With all that's been going on, Shawna and I did not have time for monthly "lunch" with one of our favorite Westchester Women. Instead we decided to share posts from three Westchester bloggers instead. The focus
We're so happy to feature a Westchester dad today for Father's Day. It's always interesting to me to hear how people who aren't Westchester natives discover Westchester, decide to make it home and best of all, hear what they love most about their town.
I've been shopping at LOLA for years. It began as a private in-home boutique where friends could shop by appointment only. Denise sourced the trendiest fashion items, mostly bags and jewelry/accessories. It was a unique experience to shop this way but there
In recent years, I've organized a lot of art parties. A couple of years ago my daughter decided that she wanted a duct tape themed birthday party. After searching all over Westchester for this kind of party, I hired Gina Zohar Fine Art to come and
This month's Westchester Woman Wednesday is Cristin Grogan. Among other things, Cristin is the founder and creator of DeskGlam, a subscription box that launched just over a month ago. And she calls Westchester home. In fact, she's a White Plains native, born and raised
So often, people ask me: "Do you know someone who tutors?" My answer is, "Sure!" Plenty of people I know tutor. Then they tell me it's for a high school subject, like Math or Science and I've got no one. Now I have
My daughter and her friends all have the same sneakers. White Adidas Superstars, with three stripes on the side. You know, the ones that were cool in the 80's? Look around at the mall and you'll see every kid is wearing
I recently discovered an incredibly talented artist. Simone Kestelman, born and raised in Brazil, is new to Westchester and is really making her mark. She's a lot of things; an interior designer, installing custom pieces for your home and gallery owner that rivals the

Before this month comes to a close, I realized I must post our Westchester Woman Wednesday. Where did April go? Weeks ago, I had lunch with Lillian Huang and decided she'd be our Westchester Woman of this month. We literally met on Instagram earlier this
My son James turned 7 a few weeks ago. Days before his birthday, I had nothing in mind for him. He has every single LEGO set available and rarely asks for things. I was scrolling through my inbox and when I saw LEGOLAND in

This weather has me wanting to ditch my winter coat and go shopping for spring- I've discovered this brand and decided to share. Can be found online or in Bloomingdales, Saks and Nordstrom. Recently too on Amazon! It's called cooper & ella
Teacher Appreciation Day is one of my favorite days of the year. There's no one I appreciate more than my kids' teachers. Having spent 11 years in the classroom, I know that teachers do not need this day to feel appreciated, because most feel
I met this vendor at two different holiday events; one in Westchester and one in Greenwich. I was shocked that these "mommy necklaces" had not taken off in Westchester. Another vendor in the area sells them too. I purchased a necklace from each of
We don't keep a calendar of events. We considered it and realized that every other site has one and that's where people go for "things to do." However, the other sites usually list things for the kids-- Not the moms. So we've decided to publish
Shawna and I go to a lot of restaurants. Some are chef's tastings or new seasonal menu previews and others are full service meals or grand openings. It's always an interesting assortment of guests and we often wonder afterwards who created the guest list. We leave
