  • Exploring smoothies at Whole Foods!
    Tweet Recently I attended a blogger event at Whole Foods that was born out of a Twitter conversation with a few friends. Isra was faking a pina colada (she decided to omit the one ingredient that I think makes it real – yeah the one you have to be 21 years old to buy) to get through our Nemo snowstorm and the Whole Foods in Cambridge (Fresh Pond) decided to kick...

  • Can you hear me now? #VZWBUZZ
    Tweet As part of being a Verizon Wireless Lifestyle blogger I was in NYC last week and I was talking to the social media maven at Verizon (who I think is wicked smart) about my escapades with phones and quality (or lack there off) and he thought that it was a blog post right there. Of course I wondered why I had not done it too. So here I am rectifying that. I’m...

  • For the love of learning! #TeachersChangeLives
    Tweet When Office Depot asked me to be a  REAL Change blog ambassador, there was no thinking. I mean education + philanthropy + story telling = a winner! For sure! I know there is this thing that you should dread school but I loved school. I mean LOVED school. I loved it to a point of nausea to my sisters who did not share the same feelings, though they did share my...

  • Make room in your kiddie’s closet for RUUM! Giveaway!
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Kamani! I was thrilled to be invited to a local RUUM store opening, where they were kind enough to have a giftbag waiting for me with a little something for my readers, but more on that later in the post. In truth though I had already shopped there before the grand opening. I was a huge fan of 77Kids and was sad to hear it close...

  • 5 Apps for Kids 5 years and older! #VZWBuzz
    Tweet So I am a Verizon Wireless Insider lifestyle blogger  and I am ridiculously excited about it. I received a Motorola RAZR HD to take for a spin and here are some thoughts on how I (aka as my kids) will be using it. While I come from a software engineering background, I am not a fan of doing technical reviews. As a mama I seek practicality and prefer to offer it....

  • Fat girl in a sea of Lululemon!
    Tweet It’s 11:37pm and I know I should sleep. The alarm is set for 5am and I know I am going to regret watching reruns of Sex And The City but I feel like I need something to stop the thinking (worrying) about how I take another stab at my to-dos since I miserably failed at them again. But off course there is wine and silence, 2 of my favorite things, so I drag...
