Movie Review: Disney’s Frozen


Expect the unexpected with Disney’s Frozen, the best movie from the house of mouse in a very, very long time. Sure, the movie has the typical trade dress of a Disney production - dead parents? Check. Damsels in distress? Check. Strapping young men? Yup. But the use of these characters and their situations are contrary to what you’ve come to love (or hate) and know about your typical animated Prince/Princess film. For one thing, the movie ends up being a huge protest to being swept off your feet … [Read more...]

Udi’s Gluten Free Goodies – Yum!

udi's gluten free foods

My daughter has a friend in school who has Celiac Disease and can't eat anything with gluten in it. On the outside, this means her mom brings her own pizza and cupcake to birthday parties, she can't eat any school lunches and she brings her own snacks to playdates. My kids, who seem to have stomachs of steel, eat anything and everything in their path, and unfortunately, I'm pretty ignorant to the restrictions that come with a gluten-free diet. When my daughter has her friend over, I am … [Read more...]

Don’t Have a Dress? Rent One at Rent The Runway

Rent the Runway dressses I've rented

Men have been renting tuxedos since the beginning of time.I am not sure that I even know a man who owned a tuxedo - it's so easy to rent them for whatever the prom/bar mitzvah/wedding occasion they're needed for. So what's wrong with us women, dropping sometimes hundreds of dollars on a dress that we may (a) wear only once or (b) begrudgingly wear to every occasion we need a fancy dress for because we spent so much money on it? We work hard for our money but still my not be able to afford that … [Read more...]

Between working, carpools and about the eight million other things that we do on a daily basis, who has time to read the newspaper? I don't. And as my kids get older, I have the television news on less and less because really, they do not need to hear about the stories of a 1 year old boy being shot to death in Brooklyn or how a man died after falling from a walkway at a San Francisco 49ers footabll game this weekend. As a grown-up, I would like to have some idea of what is going on in this … [Read more...]

Oz The Great and Powerful – Go See It!


Oz The Great and Powerful opens this weekend, and having just seen an advanced screening, you'll want set aside some time for your family to see it---  what a treat it was!  This magical fairytale of a movie features James Franco, Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz (just to name a few players from the powerhouse cast,) and is unlike any movie you've seen -- at least recently.  The only movie I can compare it to, and peripherally at that, is Lord of Rings, in the sense that the Oz The … [Read more...]

Personal Shopping At Its Finest: Stitch Fix


Last month, we did the normal end of year closet clean out and donation and I've found myself with very few things that I like to wear. When it comes to shopping, I have a few issues/requirements. First, I don't like to spend a ton of money on clothes. I don't wear high end designers and I'm happy to buy stuff anywhere from Target to Banana Republic. Second, I don't like to wear things that everyone else is wearing. Luckily, I have recently found a few local boutique shops that sell cool looking … [Read more...]

100% Pure Cosmetics are 100% Purely Awsome!

100% pure organic cosmetics

One of the things I promised myself that I would do this year is take better care of my skin. I am fortunate to look younger than I actually am, but as I celebrate the anniversary of my 29th birthday every year, I wonder when my luck is going to run out. Last month I took a business trip to California and while there, I met up with friends for dinner. As we walked around downtown San Jose, my friend wanted to make a quick pit stop into a cute little store where she could stock up on some of … [Read more...]
