When it comes to cosmetics and toiletries, I am difficult to please. I’m even more discriminating with products I use on my kids, 4-year-old Westley and 3-month-old Arwen. So when I rave about children’s products on this blog, there’s no doubt that they are the crème de la crème.
Last month, Noodle & Boo sent me their Newborn 2-in-1 Hair & Body Wash and Baby Balm to review.
From Arwen’s first bath with these products, I’ve been hooked. Addicted! (more…)
One of my all-time favorite things is opening my front door to find a package waiting for me on my doorstep. Most of the time, I know what the contents are (aka the end result of a late-night online shopping spree), but the best boxes are the ones with a surprise inside. Who’s with me here?

We now interrupt your regularly scheduled beauty programming to bring you an important public service announcement for parents. If you have small children who will soon start daycare or preschool, the following is required reading.
Arwen Grace, my chipmunk-cheeked 10 week old baby, started daycare this week. While it was difficult to return to work and leave my little munchkin in the care of others, I have to admit that it was easier the second time around. With my son, Westley, I felt incredibly guilty – like I was abandoning him. And on top of that, I didn’t know what essentials and “gear” he needed for his days at daycare. This time, I’m informed and prepared. So here’s your chance to take advantage of my expertise.
