Today we join in the celebration of International Women’s Day with joy and a great outlook for a future where women across the globe will enjoy the same access to equality and girls can grow up to live to their full potential. However, the reality is that women are still much more likely than men to be poor and illiterate. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said in an article yesterday that, “No country can get ahead if it leaves half ofRead More ...

Posted by: | No Comments

As I sat in the theater watching Disney’s “OZ The Great and Powerful” one phrase came to mind: “Behind every great man there’s a great woman.”  In director Sam Raimi’s vision of the origins of the beloved wizard from Frank L.

IRead More ...

Not only is my daughter an only child, she’s also a mom blogger’s only child. You could correctly assume she’s a bit — okay, a lot! — spoiled. It’s just the nature of our life. She gets mom’s and dad’s undivided attention when we’re together, and there’s nothing we want to change about that. As a mom blogger’s daughter who lives in L.A., she’s gone to Disneyland and Disney World as a VIP more times than she should have atRead More ...

Kids Fashion In a Box {Giveaway}

Posted by: | 101 Comments

  Some days I wished my daughter could just wear a uniform to school like I did. Sure, it limits her style and her self-expression through fashion, but it’s such a relief for parents to have one less thing to think about and to spend money on. I must admit, though, and contradict myself a bit, that I love spending money on my daughter’s clothes. I love the crazy fashions for girls that are so colorful , so daring andRead More ...
