Eyelash Extension – My Beauty Treatment Obsession

I'm pretty low maintenance when it comes to my make-up regiment.  Especially in the summer months.  In fact, other than a tinted moisturizer, powder and lip gloss my make-up bag is quite small and I usually have my "face" on within 5 minutes in the

Foodies of Instagram Top Picks (and pics)

Some of the best pics on Instagram are pics of food.   I never post what I cook and rarely post what I eat.   But I love looking at others pics.   I started following this food account and learned that it's created by

Three Reasons to Love Club Pilates

BY ERINI'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

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

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

Custom Gifts at Wyatt Lily

My kids are now 10 and 6.   When they were babies, I spent many hours (and dollars) shopping at a trendy kids boutique in the Scarsdale Village which is now Wyatt Lily.   It was great then, but even better now.  It's usually my first stop
