  • Yo Gabba Gabba In A City Near You!
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Sharon! So I really disliked You Gabba Gabba at first. I mean seriously try describing them to someone else. Freaky right? Then somewhere along the line while kiddie channel hopping we heard some catchy tunes. So I put aside my distaste for the fashion sense, or lack thereof (yeah even I have some weird standards) and decided to...

  • Nate Berkus And Me!
    Tweet So when I received an  invitation to attend the launch party for the Nate Berkus Show I have to admit that I had no idea who he was. And if you are wondering if mommy niri has been living under a rock, the answer would be yes,with just kiddie shows as my entertainment. When I mentioned him to my single girlfriend her squeals of delight made me realize that I was...

  • “Just Call Me Belle!”
    Tweet So I toiled. hard. to find the perfect name for my baby to be. I mean I wanted something that had a Hindi meaning, easy to pronounce, short and with no religious connotation.  We settled on “Jia”, pronounced Gia or Gee-Ahh and meaning “heart”. I had kept my home Disney princess free – somehow my opinion of strong female characters...

  • Bye Bye Maternity Clothing!
    Tweet So when I started the Better For BlogHer campaign with Healthy Choice I did so with a bit of a rebel attitude. No way was I going to make it easy for a product to make a difference.  So with no weighing or drastic life changes I embarked on swapping out a meal for a Healthy Choice meal. Without realizing it some weight must have dropped. No idea how much but I...

  • Earth Footwear’s Latest The Swank Boots (Giveaway)
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED!!! Congratulations Erica! So I got approached about reviewing a pair of boots. I was already freaking out that I had done nothing with the kids for summer and began to panic that summer had passed me by while I had my head buried in blogging. So when I regained composure realizing that I still had a few weeks I did wonder about these new boots....

  • Nanny McPhee Returns (Giveaway)
    Tweet Contest Closed! Congratulations Colleen! Earlier this week we got the opportunity to view a screening of Nanny McPhee, which opens August 20th at cinemas, and it was a total journey.

  • Scholastic Children’s Dictionary Back-To-School Blog Tour (Win It And $100 Visa Gift Card)
    Tweet Contest closed! Congratulations Sheliza! While seasoned moms are counting the days until school opens, the newbies are scared of just that happening. Yes, both have kids driving them up the wall (that is one long summer vacation I tell you) but when your kid is going to start school for the first time you worry so much. About everything. About anything. About nothing. Either...

  • Bloggers Hit The Today Show (Including Mommy Niri)
    Tweet It was at the time that invites to various parties were flowing in (note to companies – the BlogHer dates are set far in advance, leaving it until last minute to invite bloggers is not smart) and I had received an invite for The Today’s Show. I had been earlier, over a year ago to be precise, to an event with the producers of The Today Show at the...

    Tweet So you know that I have kicked off the Better For BlogHer campaign and I am looking at everything that will help with that pesky snacking habit I have.

The new flavor – Chocolate Mint Sensation is still...

  • My BlogHer Babbling!
    Tweet So I made it to BlogHer and I made it back. If you read my Girlfriend’s Guide To BlogHer you would be wondering if I really ate my own dog food. And to not keep you in suspense, yes I did. BlogHer was a blur but I expected it to be. What I wore T-shirt with my logo (if I am forking out money to be there I better promote myself ) and my twitter id (which...

  • Win $20 Gift Card To Axl’s Closet (2 Winners)!
    Tweet Contest Closed! Congratulations Madeline, and Tammy! When I was approached by Axl’s Closet to check out their online store I had not heard of them before but then again I am not a huge shopping girl. Though admittedly having 2 girls I shop for them all the time. In fact that was my one crazy reason I so wanted girls. Back to Axl’s Closet. They have...

  • Johnson’s Girl Talk Party For Autism Awareness!
    Tweet When I cam across an opportunity to host a girl “party” initiated by Johnson’s (you know the folks that make the trusted baby products for generations?) with a focus of raising awareness for a charitable cause – there was no thinking involved. I signed up. Fast forward a few weeks later and I was knee deep in projects but this one I wanted...

  • Win A Backpack And A $20 Panera Gift Card!
    Tweet Contest closed! Congratulations Jessica! While I was at Evo Conference I came across the company Whoops Bunny. The idea behind the “whoops” had me interested. Working on the angle that little accidents and imperfections are ok in life is what drew me to the brand. I used to be a perfectionist at one time, then I had kids, and when I thought I could...
