Your Amazing Space: Win 2 hours with Dahlia Bellows, Professional Organizer (Rafflecopter Giveaway)

My name is Jessica, and I am a pack rat.  While not exactly ripe for an episode of Hoarders, there are few spaces in my small NYC apartment without piles and absolutely no closets that are completely safe to open without having something fall on your head. Ok, maybe there is one closet that might qualify a little bit…

Let’s face it, parenthood comes with a lot of stuff…and it’s sometimes hard to figure out what you really need and where to put all of it.

If you’re anything like me, that sort of help would involve a little bit of tough love and a lot of hand holding.

I want to help you.  Actually, LOL, you don’t really want help from me…but I have someone who can–absolutely for FREE.


Hellmann’s, The Food & Wine Classic and Happy Chickens

Unless I’m in the mood to make my own mayonnaise, I have always preferred Hellmann’s to other packaged brands.

And they’ve given me a reason to love it even more–the company has committed to using 100% cage-free eggs by 2020! Though I’d prefer they make good on their promise by an earlier date, it’s most definitely a step in the right direction. Good job, Hellmann’s 🙂

To celebrate this committment, they have teamed up with Chef Tim Love to offer a behind the scenes peek at the 30th Annual FOOD & WINE Classic which took place in Aspen this past June.

You can even visit Hellmann’s Facebook Page to enter to win a a trip to next year’s Food & Wine Classic (and some other fun stuff 🙂

Beyond Coastal Sun Care (Review and Giveaway)







It seems that I am on the go and running after my kids all summer long. Since we are in NYC, being outside (except for the occasional day trip) means lots and lots of time in various playgrounds around the city.

I run after my kids in the grass, on concrete and asphalt, catch them at the bottom of slides, push them on swings and chase them through sprinklers.

One thing (among many 😉 that terrifies me is sunburn. I am always looking for a great sunscreen for my family that will protect all of us and keep us safe. It’s pretty scary that, of late, there have been warnings against so many of the ingredients in the sunscreens that we usually buy. I was happy to get the chance to try out Beyond Coastal ‘s sun care line because it is on the EWG‘s list of approved sunscreens.
