Harry Potter fever has been in our home for a while now. Chloe and her group of girlfriends all aged around 7-8 years old have been addicted to the series since the beginning of the year. She's currently halfway through book #4 and for a girl entering 3rd grade, I'm so impressed that she's hooked on reading these dense (and heavy!) chapter books. Author J.K. Rowling is taking Harry Potter to London stage and the script for the play will be available in book form by midnight this Saturday. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story with...

Cocokind, one of my favorite organic skincare brands has recently just launched their Cocokind Baby line. The brand is already about clean ingredients with virgin organic coconut oil as their base for most of their products. Their baby line takes this even further with most products containing only a handful of ingredients. These products are great not only for baby but for toddlers, kids and even mamas with sensitive skin. Chloe has as always had sensitive skin -- I wish I had these products when she was a baby! Right now, I'm using the baby oil on her arms and... Continue reading

A year ago, I started on my Erin Condren Life Planner journey. I first found out about this planner from my blog friend Katie at Good Life Eats. Katie was a food writer of mine when I was an editor at Craftzine.com. I remember her tweeting a few years ago that she just purchased an EC Life Planner to organize her life and I was really intrigued. Last year, I realized I needed to get myself into organizing shape. As much of an organized person I am, I always felt like at the end of the year, I was only... Continue reading

It's finally summer and kids can enjoy a virtual vacation with their favorite characters in the new app, Toca Life Vacation ($2.99, available for iOS, Android and Kindle) from Toca Boca.

Thanks to the folks at Toca Boca, she received a preview app and was immediately excited to explore the game. Intuitively, she knew exactly what to do with the game once she started. It does does not disappoint with... Continue reading
