Adventures at the New York International Auto Show with Mazda and #SheBuysCars!

#SheBuysCars #MazdaNYIAS #HandbagChallengeNYIAS #GirlsNightOutNYIAS

One of the my favorite perks of being a blogger in NYC is receiving invitations to fabulous local events.  Last night I was able to attend a media preview for the New York International Auto Show at the Jacob Javits Center and it was pretty amazing!  SheBuysCars hosted #GirlsNightOutNYIAS and it was a great opportunity to sip champagne, hang with my favorite local blogger gals (below from left to right we have Esti from PrimeTime Parenting, Renee from Getting Fit & Fab and Destiny from Suburban Wife, City Life) and learn about new cars/brands.   Continue reading

2016 Holiday Gift Guide For The Tween/Tween!

2016 Holiday Gift Guide For The Tween/Teen

I think that after Men, Tweens/Teens are the most difficult groups of people to shop for.  They are extremely particular and have honed their style and taste.  You can give a little kid anything from Fisher Price and chances are you will get a smile from them.  You give a tween the wrong type of present and it will sit on a shelf until the end of time.
