Okay guys, we’re coming up on a very important gift giving holiday. It’s called Valentine’s Day. Now some of you may say, “We really don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day anymore, we’ve been together for years.” Well, I’m here to tell you, even if you’ve been married for a week or thirty years, a romantic holiday should ALWAYS include presents!
There are many types of gifts out there, some more expensive than others, and some more dependable than others. Years ago, I would have given my husband the death stare if he bought me an Instant Pot for Valentine’s Day, but I’ve changed and so have the times. I’ve been a huge advocate of the IP for many years. Those who follow me know I have had several versions and recommend them all. I think it’s an amazing gift, so if you didn’t get one for your birthday or Christmas, there’s another holiday coming up!
You don’t have to spend a fortune to put a smile on a person’s face. I’ve included a variety of price points on my list.
Lately I’ve been obsessed with fake designer bags. I’ve always been superficial (I’ll admit it). Even if I had the best looking designer imposter, (one even an expert would have to scrutinize), I would still know. I would not be able to strut around as confidently if my Gucci “G’s” were upside down. I watched […]
When Target introduced their designer lines for Target (i.e. Lilly Pulitzer for Target), I should have been excited. I love designer clothes and handbags; I love Target but…. Designers for Target? In my mind, these are two great things that should never be paired. In the 80’s, Jordache Jeans were hot commodities. If you weren’t […]
Dear Parents, Teachers and staff do not want to call you and report negative information about your student unless they have literally and figuratively tried everything to work with your child. When a teacher calls you, they expect your full support, not an argument or justification on why it’s okay to hit another student or […]
I know, I know, it’s after Christmas and eons after Chanukah. My birthday has passed and the only thing left this year is a possible Valentine’s Day token, since I can’t really ask for a Passover gift. Call me a monster, call me shallow but I’m getting my list together…just in case my husband wants […]
Happy New Year! I took a little family vacation and was literally killed the first three weeks of December, trying to meet a sales goal at work. You’re probably thinking, but I thought she’s a high school principal? I am, but that’s another blog post all together. This evening I’m here to talk about something […]
I confess, I’m off the wagon right now. I can feel my stomach getting ripe and juicy and I want to cry but in some ways I really don’t care. It’s the holidays, and I know it’s not an excuse but my mother-in-law just made homemade chocolate candies, stuffed with creamy peanut butter. Yes, not […]
Not everyday in December is a festive one. A young mother who was waiting for a child care voucher at a public assistance office for more than four hours, was essentially assaulted, humiliated and sent to Rikers Island prison for sitting on the floor. You can pick up your chin now. Jazmine Headley found herself […]
If you don’t know what it’s like to share custody of a child or children with your “Wasband” then you may not be able to relate to this post. The holidays are a very tricky and often emotional time of year. I can share that my own divorce agreement had the holidays carved out into […]
Have you ever felt like your body is betraying you? I know I have just turned fifty (have you heard?), but my body began doing things on its own around thirty-five. I’ve had five kids; I shouldn’t complain but the first four times I bounced back pretty easily. I ate what I wanted, although I […]
