The upside of chemo was the consistency.  The first three days after each treatment I'd be manic from the steroids.  This is when I would typically go shopping.  (I could distract myself and keep moving - perfect, no?)  And if I was going to get nauseous, the nausea would hit sometime during this period.  But thanks to a drug...
Mamas!  Let's talk makeup! I'm excited about this one.  For the first time ever, I actually feel on top of my make-up game.  I mean, OK: keep your expectations low.  I'm not going to venture into *real* makeup.  I'm not recommending the blending of multiple eye shadows, nor will I use confusing words like "contour" or "crease" (I'm not...
  Earlier in January, as part of my mama-style resolutions for 2013, I vowed that I would try harder with my hair.  Before anyone gets too excited, allow me to issue a HUGE disclaimer:   I suck at this.  If my hair has ever looked good on this blog, it is for one of two reasons only: 1.  Hair gods were...
Mamas, I have a love/hate relationship with my hair.  It’s long, thick and dark, so come summer, it’s basically like wearing a raccoon-fur hat in 100+ degree heat, but when I cut it, I always regret it.  And, love ponytails as I do, I have a once-per-week policy on those—I’ve been in ponytail ruts before, and they do tend...
    1. Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser It doesn't foam, but it also doesn't leave a weird film on my face.  Gets rid of summer grease and grime without my skin feeling tight or dry.  The best cleanser under $10 that I've tried in a long, long time.  Also free of chemical sulfates, parabens, petrochemicals, dyes, and phthalates.  Yay, Neutrogena!  About time. 2. The Solution...
So here's what we're reading this week, Mamas.  Parenting.com's "11 Fashion Tips from Mom Bloggers."  Hint: two of them are from Ain't No Mom Jeans (yay!).  Check this great story out for chic and easy ways to rev up your mom style from some of our favorite mom fashion bloggers. - M.
This really devastating thing happened: my child stopped taking two naps and now only takes one. The sum total of the time she naps in a day is roughly the same, but we now have an entire morning free for outings and errands and play dates. Which is good, right? I remember when she was still taking 3 then...
I love when moms get a little credit in the media.  Especially in a supportive, cool, or even glamorous way.  I mean, c'mon people - not all of us are posing on the sidelines of the playground gossiping about the latest "mommy war" or wearing patchwork denim vests.  (In fact, I don't have a single mom-friend who is the...
Given the time I'm investing in procreating, and the long list of things I love but can't have (like wine, gin, unpasteurized cheese, sushi, enzyme peels and retinols), I've been trying out some alternatives. And I'm happy to tell you that. . . I have found the holy grail of pregnancy and breastfeeding skin care for mamas with hormonal, troublesome skin.
I have been in love with all of the bright lips J. Crew is now known for.  It's instant glam for date night (and we have a little tutorial on date-night red lips here) but it's also a perfect way to add style and polish to something casual.   So fun in the summer with cut-offs and my husband's white...
