Thought Valentine’s Day was the only beloved holiday this week? Think again! Saturday is National Drink Wine Day (wait, isn’t that every day?!)—and we might be even more excited about this celebratory occasion. It’s no secret that the ladies of Momtrends love us some vino. Red, white, or sparkling, we’re … Continue reading →
My kids are early risers—to put it mildly. They’re usually up before the clock strikes 6 (ugh) giggling and yelling and competing for my undivided attention. Yes, it can be exhausting and exasperating. But it’s real life. Moreover, it’s #momlife, and it’s hard to stay mad at those sweet, eager … Continue reading →
I’m feelin’ the love, y’all… so Baby Girl and I are wearing our matching heart sweaters and hitting the town for a little mommy-daughter fun day. (Don’t worry, we’ll bundle up and cover our hearts! Brrrrr!) I’ve moved out of the diaper bag phase (for the most part) now that … Continue reading →
Happy Valentine’s Day, lovies (a bit early)! I used to dread this holiday back when I was in high school… and then through most of college, as well. I never seemed to have a boyfriend on February 14, and I remember feeling totally hopeless. (Oh, the dramatics of adolescence and … Continue reading →
Self care is something I’m really trying to focus on this year. I’ve been putting my own needs on the back burner for a while, and it’s starting to take a toll. I feel run down, exhausted, and depleted. I find myself counting down the hours and minutes until bedtime, … Continue reading →
If there’s one thing we consume a lot of in my house, it’s pizza! My kids are the pickiest eaters ever, and it’s one of the few self-contained meals we can actually all enjoy together as a family. And, you know, it’s got the essentials: protein, carbs, and, um, vegetables … Continue reading →
If there are two things we’re serious about finding here at Momtrends, they’re: 1.) products that actually do what they claim to do, and 2.) fitness classes that kick some serious butt. And so yesterday’s exclusive derriere class at NYC’s Exhale spa, sponsored by Boudreaux’s Butt Paste, did not disappoint. … Continue reading →
I remember the feeling all too well… It was the first day of sixth grade—a new school, new teachers, new peers. Worst of all: a new lunch table. The unfamiliarity of this large cafeteria threw me off guard. Where was I supposed to sit at 10:40 AM (as if that … Continue reading →
Do you think the groundhog will see his shadow today—or is spring coming sooner than expected? Well, regardless of what Punxsutawney Phil does or does not see today, the fact is: we still have a month and a half left of the woe-some winter. Cold, windy, snowy, brutal, and blustery conditions are … Continue reading →
My favorite perfume is almost impossible to find. It’s Chanel Gardenia, and you can’t get it at most department store beauty counters. For some reason, it’s not the brand’s most favored fragrance. And that’s fine by me—I like to have my own unique, signature scent. Of course, I also like to … Continue reading →
