Weekly Wednesday Workout: V-Ups - Weekly Wednesday Workout: V-Ups Time to work on those abs! This ab move is super popular but it isn’t much fun! I know there are several classes that incorporate this move including yoga and pilates. This move forces your core to work extra hard while improving your balance and concentration. Personally this move is really tough for me because my core hasn’t quite been right since my second born but–I’m daily practice can help these dee... http://ow.ly/2X7yAA

Disney Live! Three Classic Fairytales Live Show Review - Last Thursday night we took the boys to see Disney Live! At the new Kings Theater in Brooklyn. Now this theater has been closed for as long as I can remember–it was a movie theater long ago when I attended junior high down the block but has been closed for at least 15 plus years. It reopened a couple of months ago which is so exciting for me personally because it’s 20 minutes away from my house. We have the Barcla... http://ow.ly/2X4ezR

7 Beginner Strength Training Workouts - 7 Beginner Strength Training Workouts I have been preaching the message about how important Strength Training is to every body (especially women)! I gave you plenty of reasons why you should be lifting weights and I have been increasing my own weight training and feeling incredibly stronger as a result.

Do You Know The Power Of Your Influence? - I am an only child and the Lord knows I would be lonely so He gave me a huge abundance of girl (and boy) cousins that I simply adore. One of those cousins in my older cousin Renae. When I was younger she was the cousin I wanted to be–she is 8 years older than me and as pretty as ever. She was my real life Barbie–I remember rushing to her wedding 3 hours away right after my high school graduation because there was no way I could... http://ow.ly/2WTHjR

How To Pick The Perfect Personal Trainer - How To Pick The Perfect Personal Trainer Last year I thought it was a great idea to get a personal trainer. I was having a problem with fat loss and my motivation was starting to wane.  However, my while my experience started off great it ended up being a big mistake and a huge waste of money because he didn’t have most of the qualities I outlined below. I have since replaced the trainer with a new one and the difference is nig... http://ow.ly/2WQXUT

My All Day Test of Estee Lauder’s New Double Wear Makeup - The post is presented by Estee Lauder. I have always been a bit of a late bloomer. I didn’t pierce my ears until I was 22. I starting wearing “girly” clothes when I arrived at college only because I quickly realized my high school boyish threads wouldn’t get me noticed. Yet, I am still a major work in progress as I have yet to get my eyebrows professionally done. Oops. After college I entered the corporate wor... http://ow.ly/2WKGS6

10 Awesome Educational Apps For Kids -  10 Awesome Educational Apps For Kids Lately I have noticed that the boys are asking for my phone a lot more. I let them check out the YouTube Kids app which has plenty of educational clips but I really was in the market for full apps (both free and paid) so the kids could have a choice of what they wanted to play with. I don’t let them get the phone often, really only while we are travelling on the trains or at home after all home... http://ow.ly/2WHdNB
