As a mom and MBA student, Working Mother’s list of the 50 Most Powerful Moms of 2013 caught my eye. I was even more excited when I saw my imaginary BFF, Mariah Carey made the top 10. Way to go Bestie!!! Fellow Hollywood mommies, Beyonce’ and Giselle made the Top 10 as well. Working Mother(…)
I am so not a makeup girl. When I have to doll up it somewhat resembles a 6 year old girl who got into mommy’s makeup. I’ve never bought foundation or eyeshadow. I’m a gloss and mascara kinda girl. Basically, I am cosmetically challenged. Help is here though. Celebrity makeup guru and Hot Mama of(…)
With Summer around the corner, fitness challenges are popping up everywhere. Who are kidding? I’m not gonna sit around doing a gazillion push ups, planks, and pull ups. Pssssh!!!! In honor of Mother’s Day (May 12) I thought it would be fun to do a Mom Challenge for May. Some are easier than others, but(…)
I have an issue with people criticizing pregnancy weight gain. Women are hard enough on ourselves when it comes to our figure. I can’t imagine being publicly scrutinized by media and strangers for 9 months. I roll my eyes each time someone chastises Kim Kardashian for pregger pounds. Kim can’t catch a break. It’s all(…)
What do me, Danica Patrick, Juvenile, Elton John, and Sarah Jessica Parker have in common? Well, in addition to great hair and expensive taste in clothes, we all share the same birthday. You can see what celebrities were born on the same day as you here.
“Sunshine on My Shoulders” by John Denver could have been blasting in the delivery room while my mom was pushing me out. It was the #1 song on my birthday. This site lets you see the #1 song for any particular date: your birthday, anniversary, etc. On the day Morris was born, it was “Let it Burn” by Usher, and my MD was doing the tootsie roll to “Lollipop” by Lil Wayne as she pulled a breeched Bronson out.
If you want to know how old you are in dog years, your birth tree, or when you were concieved (TMI for me) then check out this site. It will give you a gazillion tidbits regarding the day you were born. I will sleep much bettr tonight knowing that the Mayan Calendar long count date of my birthday is 184.108.40.206.7 which is 12 baktun 18 katun 0 tun 12 uinal 7 ki.
And last but not least, I just might grab some free grub at Black Angus, Captain D’s, Daphne’s Greek Cafe, or Souplantation then hop on over to Baskin Robbins for a free 2.5 scoop of ice cream. This site shows you all kinds of freebies you can get in your neighborhood or online for your birthday. The free swag doesn’t stop there. You can also check out the freebies for your kids and your pet.
So, don’t be a birthday scrooge on your special day. These sites will hopefully make getting older (and wiser) just a little bit of fun.
It’s no secret that I stalk LOVE Mariah Carey. Now that she’s a mommy, it’s just double the fun. Since we’re Besties, she and I share many common interests, one being our kids, the other being festive for the Holidays. On a recent visit to the Jimmy Fallon show, Mimi, Jimbo, and The Roots grabbed(…)
The effects of a divorce/breakup are ongoing, some good some bad. It’s not just a word, it’s a process that definitely involves change and growth. It almost feels like a metamorphosis to me and now I’m at the butterfly stage enjoying life. “Enjoy Living” has been my consistent mantra and I’ve been living up to(…)
