Active and Pregnant

Guest blogger and personal trainer Kaila Morgante shares her experience and tips on how to stay active during pregnancy and her top 5 tips to keep moving!  I work in the fitness industry, so upon becoming pregnant I was already very active.

Inspring Kindness

Being Jewish I did not grow up celebrating Christmas, although I always found the holiday season especially magical. Now my family celebrates both Christmas and Hanukkah which makes the next couple months twice as much fun. To make this year even more memorable I decided to introduce a new tradition to my children; a “Do-Nice Things” Advent inspired calendar. For under ten dollars I purchased all the supplies needed to create our own special calendar. Using poster board, envelopes, and {Read More}

Sometimes a Princess has to be a Princess

Sometimes a Princess has to be a Princess

When my daughter’s teacher called me Halloween morning to report my little girl had been crying since I left her (which is not the norm), I knew I had to go pick her up. I also knew the reason behind this behavior was not because she was getting sick or perhaps had an ear infection as her teacher suspected, although these were reasonable beliefs. I knew the reason had to do with my little one’s Halloween costume. When I dropped {Read More}

FabFitFun Roundup: A Few of My Favorites From Summer and Fall

FabFitFun Review

Sadly about a month ago I ended my relationship with BirchBox. Not because I did not love it but because I felt it was no longer good for me.  I needed to make a clean break from all the hassle that comes along with samples (not enough room in my medicine cabinet), plus, I admit, I had found something new, something better. It was a difficult decision and it was tough to stay strong as BirchBox begged me to take {Read More}
