Hershey’s on Sale

Last summer, I took the girls to Hershey’s Chocolate World.  We took the then-new attraction Create Your Own Candy Bar for a spin, in fact this new exhibit was the impetus for that journey.  The chocolate bars were pricey at $14.95 but still I deemed it a worthwhile expense for […]

National Bubble Bath Day (+ Pocoyo Giveaway)

A couple months ago, after I saw someone tweet about the then upcoming, super-specific, National Pumpkin Cheesecake Day I bookmarked a website that details all the ‘National’ days, weeks, & months on the calendar.  Some of them are just too funny (get ready for Intimate Apparel Week later this month!)

Christmas Gifts 2010: The Hits

Magnabilities were the gift from my girls to their mommy and grandmom.  The elegant jewelry features magnetic inserts – some stunning, others more playful – that can be swapped out to match that day’s style.  So very classy. Both the Mrs. and my mom love their Magnabilities jewelry. Soft Heat® […]

Review: Universal Orlando Islands of Adventure & Wizarding World of Harry Potter

The approach to Hogsmeade and Hogarts castle, through ‘The Lost Continent’ and Seuss Landing in Universal Orlando’s Islands of Adventure, is absolutely stunning.  For a man-made edifice depicting a fictional place known only in books and on film, the first sight of the imposing castle will be, for some, akin […]

Toy Review: Little Librarian

The brainchild of a mother-daughter team, Little Librarian makes playing pretend library in your own home a little less like pretend thanks to realistic library cards, late notices, and those old school book pockets and cards from the pre-computer era when your name and due date would be written on […]

She probably wasn’t able to participate in some conversations with her kindergarten classmates, if said discussions were trapped inside the pop culture frame of a […]
