Living Vicariously Through Our Kids

Grab a coffee (or tea), this one's gonna be a longy. I'm gonna put something out there today which may sound like common sense, but I don't think really is. Hello, and Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Our weekend ended on a high when this guy finally wrote his high school entrance exam yesterday morning. BOOM,…

If you haven't heard of WestGroupe, they are a cutting-edge eyeglass company, so if you are a glasses wearer like me, you might love some of their incredible styles. I give you, our interview... --…

The Instant Gratification Generation

By Guest Blogger Carol Cain My teen has been working at adjusting his mindset to what he sees around him and his reality. What he sees around him: parents buying their teens expensive, out-of-the-box cars the minute they turn 17 and new iPhones the minute they hit the market. His reality: which does not suck I might add, is that…

Motivation Monday: SPANX & My Confession

Happy Monday! Today, I wanted to publish a Motivation Monday, because that's just what I was after watching MAKERS' latest video on Sara Blakely. Firstly, if you're not familiar with Makers.com, may I suggest you head over there right after you finish reading (and watching) this post. They are doing some incredible work in the women's space.

September 23, 2003: The Day My Life Changed Forever

The day was September 22nd, 2003. I was 28. Selfish. A workaholic. 9 months pregnant. And didn’t know just how my life would change the next day, at 5:40am on a Tuesday, September 23rd. When I heard the first cry, it literally took my breath away. I was instantly hooked. I hovered over his crib in the hospital. I watched…

Striving for Balance

By Guest Blogger Alison Kramer We should probably begin by defining success. To me, it meant spending my days doing something I loved. Having the flexibility to be present for school concerts, sick days and summers. Travel. And rarely, if ever, being told what to do. If you look at that list carefully, you will note I am basically unemployable –…

Children and Guns in America: Where Have We Gone Wrong?

By Guest Blogger Kimberley Blaine Taking a LITTLE girl to a shooting range? To shoot a gun that shoots 600 rounds a minute? I'm speechless because this is all COMPLETELY ABSURD. Don't we want our little girls to learn which sport is healthy and best for them? Don't we want them to learn about their connection to this peaceful earth?…

Meeting Barbara Walters and Sage Advice

It's not everyday you get to meet trailblazers. Glass ceiling breakers. It's not every day you get to meet people who were doing it FIRST. I have been fortunate enough to have met and interviewed some remarkable people over the years since starting this women's lifestyle brand 5 years ago, next month.

Wordless Wednesday: Tremblant Living for the Loving

A few weeks ago, I had the great privilege of vacationing in Mont Tremblant, a beautiful vacation resort about 90 minutes north of Montreal in the Laurentian Mountains. My family has been skiing at Tremblant for years, and while we are used to going during the wintertime, this was our first vacation there during the summer.

Happy 2014 Women’s Equality Day!

[caption id="attachment_24015" align="alignnone" width="270"] photo credit: stuttgartcitizen.net[/caption] "At the behest of Rep. Bella Abzug (D-NY), in 1971 the U.S. Congress designated August 26 as “Women’s Equality Day.” The date was selected to commemorate the 1920 passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, granting women the right to vote.
