For The Man Who Has Everything

DSC05209

I’m declaring it Men’s Week on my blog. Because I know you’re out there. I know you read my blog. Yes, men read my mommy blog. Truth be told, I totally do not consider this a “mommy blog” but I’m frequently lumped in that group. Frankly, you can call me whatever you want as long […]

All The Ways To Say… Why did I take that picture? {Giveaway}

bookstome-giveaway

A few short months ago, I made an infomercial highly entertaining video describing all of the benefits of using a service like BooksTo.Me. And I wrote a very informative post about what it was all about including a highly pinnable image. But just in case I can’t convince you to click back and read the entire post […]

What to do with all those Instagram photos

Instagram1

My instagramming has a very distinct style and my Instagram profile kind of says it all: I like interesting photos and colorful filters. But the style is also about when I take photos. Unlike Facebook and Twitter, Instagram isn’t an every day social media tool for me. If it was, it would get a little […]

A Snowpocalypse in Just 9 Steps!

DSC04623

It was the best of snow, it was the worst of snow. And it certainly has been the winter of our discontent. It was bad enough to spend last week in (mostly) sunny and (mostly) warm Florida for a vacation getaway and then come home to the cold reminders of winter. But to get hit […]

Things You Probably Didn’t Know about National Geographic Kids

NGKids-Insider

I mentioned a while ago that I’m working as a National Geographic Kids Insider. I may not have talked that much about what that means. I signed on to work with National Geographic Kids as a sort of unpaid ambassador for several reasons: 1. I have been in love with their magazine for as long […]

a little inspired: For Your Winter Viewing Pleasure

DSC03778

Only a few words on what should be a typical Wordless Wednesday (a task I’ve never been very good at). It’s all about the snow. Snow can be annoying, cold, bothersome, dirty, heavy. But snow can also be serene and beautiful. Clings to nature, hugs your house. Full of light, full of the joy of kids. […]

The Great Nature Photography Project for You and Your Kids

IMG_9196

There’s VOCATION and AVOCATION and it’s important to know the difference. A Vocation  is an occupation to which a person is specially drawn or for which he or she is suited, trained, or qualified. An Avocation is an activity that one engages in as a hobby outside one’s main occupation. Many years ago, I went to college bound and […]

Venue13

If you’re looking to check out “the stuff” I brought back from BlogHer13, check out my swag video from yesterday. If you’re more interested in the people connections I made, stop back tomorrow. Today we’re talking all about the venue. When I talk about the venue, I actually mean a lot of different things. I mean, […]

Get OUTSIDE With Your Kids

IMG_8991

I’m sure I’ve confessed this here before but as much as I love beauty and fashion, I’m really a nature girl at heart. I mean, sure, I’ll put on lip gloss to head outside but I’ll also put on good hiking shoes and the right gear for the occasion. I started college as a potential […]

NYC, Celebrities, and a Good Cause (NOW with PICTURES!)

BridgetMoynahan

It started out like any other typical Wednesday. Get glammed up. Hop on a train. Head to NYC. Take a cab to Central Park. Hang out with celebrities. I mean, isn’t that how your typical Wednesday goes? But I can’t brag about celebrities unless I show them to you. (And tell you why I got to meet […]

Creating Pictures with Purpose

Screen Shot 2013-04-09 at 12.05.05 PM

I love it when my worlds collide. It never used to happen that often when I was younger. Maybe it was because I hadn’t created that many worlds or I simply wasn’t working in the right ones. These days, my world includes a lot of social media. I’m fortunate enough to be working in social […]
