Call Your Girlfriend – Robyn & SNL Videos

by MARIA on April 30, 2012

I love Robyn. She’s different, which is what I like about her. Some people might consider her weird (I love her), but at least weird is not boring. The girl can sing and she can dance. I can’t remember when I discovered her, but I kind of fell for her when I watched her dance […]


National Oatmeal Cookie Day

by MARIA on April 30, 2012

Happy National Oatmeal Cookie Day! Yes, this is real – so feel free to celebrate by eating some oatmeal cookies. It’s the right thing to do. Oatmeal cookies first appeared in the late 1800s and are considered the second most popular cookie, right after chocolate chip. We can simply improve on this, I think, by […]


Low Carb Weight Loss – Week Six

by MARIA on April 26, 2012

Week Six, also known as the longest week EVER also known as the husband JUST go back from his business trip. On the bright side, it’s been 32 DAYS since I’ve had a Diet Coke.  Woo! That’s the longest I’ve EVER gone without Diet Coke since drinking it and I don’t miss it at all. I’m […]


I love a great agenda. And despite all the technology out there, nothing beats putting pen to paper on a gorgeous, well-thought out agenda. This is why I love MomAgenda products – and especially, the MomAgenda Desktop planner. The MomAgenda Desktop has everything you need to get organized and stay on top of everything, in […]


I’ll admit – I have some phobias when it comes to germs. They may or may not be rational ones – I’m ok with that. I dislike germs. A lot. But, I like (read: love) the opposite of germs, which to me is LYSOL! Honestly, I buy Lysol wipes by the case, and I’m also […]


I love a great documentary – and I’ve seen some great ones. IMAX Born to be Wild is one I just watched last week and I’m so glad I did. I watched it with my husband and the kids and we all really enjoyed it. Morgan Freeman narrates the 41 minute documentary that follows two […]


MailaTale – A Review

by MARIA on April 23, 2012

I first heard about Mailataile (Mail a Tale – love the cute name) on Twitter, and immediately thought it was a genius idea. There are so many monthly subscription programs out there – from makeup to food and wine – so I thought one that focuses on books and kids was really fantastic. For a […]


Low Carb Weight Loss – Week Five

by MARIA on April 19, 2012

I suppose it was inevitable at some point, but I had a bad week. I celebrated Greek Orthodox Easter this past weekend and it was great and I didn’t cheat the entire day. And then I went home with leftovers and chocolate, and somehow some of that chocolate got in my belly. And maybe some […]


Probiotics and Swiss Natural Probiotic Age

by MARIA on April 17, 2012

I’ve had to deal with “stomach issues” my entire life – it’s not fun. I’ve never really done anything about it, other than changing and adding to my diet, like eating more yogurt that contain probiotics. Before becoming a Swiss Natural Ambassador, I didn’t realize how important probiotics can actually be to your health. Probiotics are […]
