Popcorn Cupcakes

I am so not a cake maker.  I typically buy my kid’s birthday cakes from the grocery store (and thankfully they think they’re great) but there’s something to be said for the pride a mama has when she makes something special for her kid’s birthday.  I get that. Since I can master cupcakes I decided […]

It’s Raining Men is Back at LUSH (hallelujah!)

Hallelujah, It’s Raining Men Shower Gel ($8.95 – $24.95) is back for good! This divine shower gel was a limited edition product from the LUSH Valentine’s Day collection and customers clamored for it after it was gone. They read the e-mails, heard the pleas and have made it a permanent member of their shower gel […]

I’m Making the Pledge With Energizer (and you can too!)

Zutano Gift Certificate Giveaway

What I love most about fall is the beautiful colors not only in nature, but also in stores!  Rich tones of brown, green and burgundy are everywhere.  It’s nice to see that baby clothes are not always focused on pastels anymore but they also, for the most part, are not very adventurous in terms of […]
