Join me for the #BarkforBeneful Twitter Party 10/15 at 2pm ET!

This is a very busy travel month for me, and my favorite way to decompress when I’m home is by cuddling with my pups, most specifically the gorgeous Miss Lily. I’m sure a lot of you feel that way too! Attention all fellow puppy lovers: Join me on Thursday, October, 15 at 2pm ET for a fun twitter party, all about some of our favorite members of the family: our dogs!    The party will be to share lots of dog love, sponsored by Purina Beneful, who just may have the menu your dog has been waiting for. They have dry and wet dog food with flavors that include savory salmon, chicken and  beef — I like the idea of our pups eating as well as we do.  And, you can feel great knowing you’re giving your dog anti-oxidant rich nutrition to keep him...

Boston Market Catered My Friendsgiving (And An Amazing Giveaway!)

Boston Market Catered My Friendsgiving (And An Amazing Giveaway!)

In recent years, the concept of Friendsgiving has become more and more popular, especially for those who live far away from their loved ones and can’t get away to make the traditional Thanksgiving happen from year to year. Whether you are celebrating Friendsgiving, a more traditional Thanksgiving, or both — it can be a really intimidating undertaking. Especially if you aren’t very comfortable in the kitchen — or live in a typical NYC small apartment and don’t have a lot of kitchen space to go around! This weekend, I partnered with Boston Market to host a small Friendsgiving for some of my near and dear. They catered everything I would need, and it was a smashing success! It was the perfect idea: It let me take credit for a delicious...

Giveaway: Vosges Chocolates and Scribd 3-Month Membership

Every so often, a friend or colleague will ask me what I like to read. I think they assume I’m going to say something very different than the reality. I’m obsessed with naughty romances. In fact, always have been. When I was a teen, I would be at the library weekly, loading up on Harlequin novels. That paired with my love of soap operas is probably why I have such a distorted idea of sex and romance. Wait, you mean we didn’t get drenched in sweat and scream out in passion last night? WHY THE HELL NOT? When your first introduction to sex is through romantic fiction, you have a very distorted reality of what is “normal” in passion. I’m way past my teenage years, but still love romance. Be it historical, supernatural, or down and...

Sponsored Post: FiberChoice Challenge (and Giveaway)!

Sponsored Post: FiberChoice Challenge (and Giveaway)!

A few weeks ago, in the throes of a month that led to me having way too much travel in a short period of time, FiberChoice contacted me and asked me to take their 30-day challenge. They challenged me to “get picky” and switch to a Fiber Choice product for my daily fiber supplement. Most of us only get half the recommended daily amount of fiber, if that much. Even for the healthiest eaters, it can be a challenge to incorporate 25 to 30 grams of fiber each day to maintain one’s health and well being.  Add those of us who spend half their time on planes, in hotels, or at business dinners, and it’s probably even worse. Fiber is super important to our overall health because it keeps food moving through our systems. Fiber Choice® products...

Giveaway: Panasonic’s Fab Vintage-Style Monitor Stereo Headphones

Giveaway: Panasonic’s Fab Vintage-Style Monitor Stereo Headphones

I love people, but I also really love being alone with my music and my thoughts. You can say I just may be an introvert in a sociable world — and when I’m having those alone-with-my-music moments, it can very well be in a semi-public place. I spend many a Sunday in a local cafe with a latte and my laptop — and said great music, and this past weekend, I did so wearing a fun new pair of headphones. Panasonic has recently reintroduced their vintage-style Monitor Stereo Headphones into Urban Outfitters stores and online. These  are super cute and come in four colors that are the perfect accessory to any head to toe look. I love the retro styling: Inspired by old-school design, the RP-HTX7 provide a lightweight, comfortable listening experience...

Giveaway: Record Your Life with the Autographer (and whole line of accessories!)

Ever wish you could preserve this moment in time forever? Obviously, we’ve all had moments like that – and moments we kind of wish we could forget. For everything, the good and bad, there’s Autographer. Autographer is the world’s first intelligent, wearable camera. Autographer takes photos automatically – completely hands-free – which means you get to enjoy everything you are doing, as you do it,  rather than live behind the lens of a camera or smartphone and miss the moment. (Which obviously we’ve all been guilty of.) You can go old-school and wear it around your neck using a lanyard or clip it onto clothing or bag. It’s loaded with environmental sensors to add context to the hundreds of images you capture each...

Giveaway: AncestryDNA Kit

Giveaway: AncestryDNA Kit

True story: For many years, I’ve fantasized of various ethnic origins. First, when I was a kid, I desperately wanted to be a Sephardic Jew. The reasoning behind this is quite simple to a 12 year old mind — they are allowed to enjoy beans on Passover, Ashkenazi Jews (which I am, in reality), are not. I told my mom I was declaring myself Sephardic. She said it didn’t work that way. I’ve not fully gotten over this yet. Last year, I read that Spain was giving citizenship to Sephardic jews. Spanish citizenship would be sort of cool, no? I scoured all my relatives for potential of ancestry. I got nowhere. More recently, I’ve thought I may potentially be British. Just a bit. I REALLY am obsessed with all things British – the royals,...

If you are like me and would probably make a burger your final meal on earth (believe it or not this is something I think about sometimes), you may be interested to know in celebration of their 80th birthday this weekend, Steak ‘n Shake has created a special Birthday Cake Shake.

Tomorrow: #JustBrewIt Twitter Party With Keurig — Win one of 15 Special Edition Brewers

I’ve spent just about every day of Passover hanging with my mom – even coerced her to come over to my mess of an apartment yesterday to help me declutter, and I’ve realized — Mother’s Day should really be every day. Keurig agrees. I’ve teamed with One2One for a “cool beans” (couldn’t resist!) Keurig #JustBrewIt Twitter Party devoted entirely to the awesomeness of our moms and making their day special (and every day special!). The party is going to be tomorrow and I hope all of you will be there! My co-host for the party will be the lovely Angela Sellari of About a Mom  — who may know a thing or two more about being a mom than I do, meaning we’ll have a lot to talk about! There’ll be some...
