But moreContinue reading “Review: Leslie Sansone’s: Walk Away The Pounds Express”

Review: Boomtown by Nowen N. Particular

Grade: D I’m a details person. When I buy a product that has clever packaging, little gems in every nook and cranny, it makes me love the product more – putting in that extra effort, to me, says you care about your product.

Kids’ Picks: Grumpy Frumpy! Happy Snappy!

My son hasn’t gotten into too many new books since last month’s kids picks a great book carnival @ 5 Minutes For Books EXCEPT this little gem that I picked up at Target in the $1 bin… He immediately seemed to know that these little guys were “monsters” in a big scary silly voice, thoughContinue reading “Kids’ Picks: Grumpy Frumpy!

I Will Never Be The Woman With The Perfect Hair, Who Can Wear White and Not Spill On It.

Count on Carrie Bradshaw to sum it up perfectly. I just got back from Sex and the City: The Movie and in a word, it was, of course, fabulous.
