This post is sponsored by Gap, Athleta, Old Navy, Banana Republic, and ShopStyle. Gap Inc. reached out, asking if we wanted to work on a little video featuring allll of our favorite gifts from their family of brands (Athleta, Gap, Old Navy and Banana Republic). Obviously, we were thrilled — the hardest part was choosing what to feature. So after...
On it! Gifts for the label-loving, luxury-buying, indulgent gals & guys on our holiday shopping list. A mix of fancy & reasonable options exuding bad & boujee.
What does it really mean to be bad and boujee? According to Urban Dictionary, it means a person who lives life in the fast lane, enjoys a fancy lifestyle, and likes designer clothes, holidays aaaand...brunch. Basically, me. I love an exquisite brunch with my girls, am always on the go, and have a closet that could compete with the...
The Art of Stuffing Stockings — there is one – & Momma Santa has a foolproof formula for the best unique stocking stuffers for kids of any age.
This post has been updated for 2019. It's 2019, and we're right where we were at this time in 2018. So we've updated this post with a few fresh finds for stuffing all the stockings in the next, well...few days? Thank you Amazon Prime for those "arrives before Christmas notations." We're all frantically tying up loose holiday ends here at TME....
For men who love a big game, can't wait to play, are always down for a fire-gathering, or might just need some fun & practical gifts — this GIFT Guide.
I'm not sure the last time someone told me that their husband/significant other/boyfriend/father/brother was easy to shop for. I'm sure there are Those Men out there. I just can't think of one off the top of my mind. What I can conjure up is 45 years of having an amazingly fun father, two crazy, wonderful brothers, a sizable collection...
Pink is happy & light & "supposed to be" for women. That's why they picked pink for breast cancer. But breast cancer isn't pink." That, + some fun fashion!
Shana and I created an Ultimate Toy Gift Guide that lists out ALL of our favorite toys we've fallen in love with throughout the years. You can take a look at it here or by going to the top of your screen, pulling down the Holiday bar, and selecting The Toy Guide. It is a MONSTER guide that goes...
We have splurge-worthy Hanukkah gift ideas (also sensible & crazy) for the whole fam — for the 8 nights, the 12 days, holiday birthdays or simply pure fun!
Eight nights of Hanukkah, twelve days of the Other Holiday, whatever...who's counting at this point? Here comes Hanukkah, here comes Hanukkah...right down Hanukkah lane...Oh wait, that's not it, I'm confused and holiday-cocktail-mixing. So are my kids, (confused — not cocktail-mixing) who when asked their religion reply, "Um, Jew-"ish", but we go to church with Alla too." See how we...
Remember having (or lusting over) Lacoste? Like the Royal Tenenbaums, it's French-Casual, yet sophisticated & luxe. A go-to for solid holiday gifting inspo.
Stand up straight. Let me get a look at you. What's so funny? It's nice to see you, too. Ahhh, The Royal Tenenbaums. One of the quirkiest movies I think I have ever seen (gotta love Wes Anderson), and yet -- its genius has made it an all-time favorite. When I watch movies like this one (much like how I...
Looking for the perfect experience gift? Hosting a family house party? Seeking a family present? Ideal (& fun) gift ideas for the holiday season, inside.
This post is sponsored by eBay and ShopStyle.  There's a certain chaos I've learned to embrace when it comes to the holidays. I married into a big family--Zack has four older sisters--and it just kept getting bigger when everyone started having kids. There's always a TON of people around, young and old, and this girl (you know, the one who...
This post has been updated for 2021. So as a kid, sure I had stuff, but honestly most of the memories I can pull up with the ol’ brain box are of me, my sister, and a few cousins using the backyard hose to fill a dirt pit with water -- and that’s literally what we did all summer. So...

If your little "wanna-be gamer" is pleading with you for a video game system, and you're still debating whether they are old enough or which system to go with, go HERE. I give a full explanation...
