    I’ll Never Get Another Blowout (yeah, right): Tales From a Curly Girl

I’ll Never Get Another Blowout (yeah, right): Tales From a Curly Girl

Last week there was an article in the New York Times about curly hair. I am always drawn to articles about curly hair, because, well, I have curly hair and if you have curly hair, then you know what I mean. Curly hair is not technically considered an affliction.

Labor Day #Kindle eBook Deals

This has been an amazing summer. My kids all loved their various camps. The weather in the northeast was beautiful. I got away a few times. And the best part of the summer for me was that I finished the first draft of my next manuscript. (YAY!) Hopefully I’ll have some updates on that project soon.

As I go into […]

Are You a Bad Mom If You Send Your Kids to Camp?

Yesterday on THE MOMS Sirius XM Stars 106 radio show, hosts Denise Albert and Melissa Gerstein were talking about how they had sent their kids to camp that morning and it was, essentially, a nice relief. A longer day for them to pursue what they want to do: work and other personal pursuits.

They received a call from a woman who chewed […]

Win a Summer Beach Reads Giveaway!

I have always thought summer was the best time to read. All those endless days lounging around on the beach with nothing to do. Well, that’s not my life but if it were, I would spend all those days reading! It is true though that summer does mean a vacation or two and less time shuttling my boys from […]

40th Birthday Swag Bag: Blog Hop

My friend Dorothy recently told me she was going on a 40th birthday trip with close girlfriends. Each attendee was asked to bring a “favorite thing” to give to everyone in the group. They were, in a sense, creating a swag bag for the party. I was so excited when she told me that she was bringing copies of […]
