Macy's Fashion Week 2011


It is that time again and I am sooo excited to tell you that Macy's is having their Fashion Show again and I can not wait!! We all know we all love fashion and what is coming up for the spring and summer season. Macy's is great place to start for your new pieces in your warbrobe because they have everything you can think of and we can see how to put some of your new favorites together to look like you just walked off the runway.

I know I have a love for shopping and all the coors, styles just warm my heart when I walk by them. I normally picture myself in the outfits and where I would wear them. I have a little story in my head for each outfit, i might be the only one that does that but that what I love so much about clothes because one shirt, skirt or amazing pair of jeans can make you feel like you are on top of the world. Also, to have someone give me advice on what looks good on me and have a model show me what it would look like, makes it that much easier and that much more fun. It takes the guess work out of it.

How can you pass up a fashion show with your girlfriends! I know I can't. We all need some mommy free time and not even for mommies but for every woman out there you need to do something for yourself sometimes and have a great girls day with your cloest friends. I have listed the information below for you. I hope to see you there!!!


Grab the girls and head to Macy's for a fashion show featuring the most fabulous career clothing for the new season. Macy's by Appointment experts along with our special co-host Sarah Zlotnick, Style & Shopping Editor for, will be on hand for free wardrobe advice to help you choose the perfect, professional look!

Boppy 2011

As a new mommy one of the things that is a must have is a Boppy! They are amazing and are so helpful for so many different reason. Especially when you are breastfeeding or bottle feeding when they are newborns, it will help support them and make you feel more at ease. Of course one of the best things is that you can is pick out your favorite and stylish slipcovers for them. Even as your little one grows the Boppy can use for place for them to rest they head as you play with their feet and legs or for tummy time. When they need some support for sitting up or still a little wobbly with their sitting you can put the Boppy around them as an extra cushion when they start leaning.

Here is a few samples of some of the slipcovers you can pick from.

On the Boppy official website you can even build your own. You can pick from designer styles and textures and also from double styles or a solids colors.

You can also find great patterns at Babies’R’Us / Toys’R’Us or target. Check them out!!

February: Valentine Cookie Recipe


Okay, let's be honest, I haven't done much in Jan, trying to get my life back on track and I know I told you that I would be coming out you will ideas and reviews. Today I got sent an email about great easy valentines day recipes and I am very excited for this because you usually I make heart shaped sugar cookies and decorate them.

Really who does loves these??

or these??

is your mouth watering yet, because mine is.

here is the new recipe I will be trying this V Day:

Sugar Heart Sandwich Cookies

1 recipe Sugar Cookie Dough, at room temperature
6 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
1 tablespoon pomegranate juice
Small red sugar hearts, for decorating

Equipment: 2 1/4-inch round cookie cutter, 1 1/2-by-1-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter

Prepare dough as directed and chill for 2 hours.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Sprinkle a work surface and rolling pin with confectioner's sugar and roll out dough to 1/8-inch thick. Move dough frequently to prevent it from sticking and add more confectioner's sugar to the work surface and rolling pin as needed. With a 2 1/4-inch round cookie cutter, cut 72 dough rounds, re-rolling dough as needed. With a small heart-shaped cookie cutter (about 1 1/2-by-1-inch), cut hearts from the center of half the dough rounds. Place the rounds and cutouts about 1 inch apart on parchment -lined baking sheets. Bake until just set but not brown, about 6-8 minutes. Let cool on the pan slightly before transferring to a rack to cool completely.

Meanwhile, make the filling: In a small bowl, whisk together the cream cheese, butter, confectioner's sugar, and pomegranate juice until smooth and fluffy. Spread about 1 teaspoon filling on each round cookie and top with a cut-out cookie. Place a red candy heart in the center of each. Leftover filling can be used to sandwich the small hearts together.

I would love for you share some of your favorite valentines day treats with me!
