A Christmas Home Tour OVERFLOWING with easy and beautiful ideas for holiday decorations. Love these simple & glam Christmas ideas that are perfect for stylish families!

I wish I had a legitimate excuse for always ordering my Christmas cards late, but I don't. I mean, EVERYONE is busy. But even my busy friends still seem to get their cards in the mail on time. Let's face it, I'll probably always be a last minute Christmas card sender. It's not that I love my friends and family any less (in fact, I probably love them more than they know), but I'm always waiting for the 'perfect' photo. And the 'perfect' stamps. And the 'perfect' time to sit down and put them … [Read more...]

A Christmas Home Tour OVERFLOWING with easy and beautiful ideas for holiday decorations. Love these simple & glam Christmas ideas that are perfect for stylish families!

Each year I struggle with posting a Christmas home tour. Not because I don't love decorating for the holidays-- obviously I do, hence the glam Scandinavian handmade holiday explosion!-- but rather it's because I strive to keep this blog a place of reality. And the reality is that I have two young kiddos and very little free time to spend fluffing pillows and arranging greenery for hours on end.

Hot Toys Kids will Love: LeapPad3 by Leapfrog!

I've been having an internal conversation with myself (not to be confused with external conversations with myself, the ones that get me kicked out of Target) about whether or not to invest in a tablet for my kids. We have one for my husband which the kids love to steal and use to look up videos on the internet that may nor many not have recently included a LEGO video involving a Miley Cyrus 'Wrecking Ball' reenactment. Which is pretty much the #1 reason I don't want to get the kids a … [Read more...]

MUST-READ tips for traveling with kids; don't make the same mistakes we did!

"Um, Mom? It's me. No worries but our plane's engine wouldn't fire during takeoff and the local mechanic couldn't fix it so after spending 7 hours at the airport it looks like we're going to have to spend an extra night here in Turks & Caicos..." Sounds like a dream come true, right? Accidentally getting stuck in paradise? Well, if we had been back at Beaches again it would have been, but unfortunately we were not. Since our cancelled 3:30 flight was the last one that day, we were stuck … [Read more...]

10 things to know before you go to Beaches Turks & Caicos

For the past 15 years, visiting Turks & Caicos (a string of islands located in the Caribbean, about an hour's plane ride away from Miami) has been on my bucket list. For over a decade I've been dreaming about the white sand beaches, stunningly clear aqua ocean, famous reefs, and incredible hospitality. When I was invited to attend the Social Media on the Sand conference in Turks & Caicos mid-October, I simply could not resist. While this trip was not free, my family and I enjoyed a … [Read more...]
