Gifts for the Mommy-to-Be

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage; at least that’s how the old saying goes. While many of my friends have left the single world behind them and have decided to take that stride down the isle, others are leaps ahead of them, beginning to create a family […]

Bottle Service for One

Sometimes after a long hard day of work, it’s nice to come home and just relax with a good glass of wine; but let’s be real, one glass often turns into two and two eventually turns into three. The next thing you know, you’ve polished off the whole bottle all by yourself. Another one bites […]

Mustache Mania

Fashion always seems to come full circle; from bellbottom jeans, to midriffs, it seems like we are constantly recycling looks from the past. Not only are clothing trends recycled, but hair and make-up too. The latest and greatest thing to be recycled, you ask? A good old-fashion mustache! Last popular in the 1970s and 1980s […]

There’s always that one friend or relative that takes advantage of your kindness and overstays their welcome a little too often. They waltz into your home as if they’ve just booked a five-night, all expense paid stay at the Ritz-Carlton. They’re appreciative of your kindness, but really they’re just taking advantage of you night after […]

Gifts for a New Job

These days, finding a good job is like trying to find a needle in the middle of a haystack. Thankfully though, the unemployment rates are slowly falling, giving more people an opportunity to find work.

Best Friends Forever

With the exception of New Year’s Eve, all of the family associated holidays have come and gone. For many people, myself included, the holidays means schlepping a handful of presents into a car or on a plane, and heading back to their hometown. Being home means spending time with family, seeing old friends, maybe helping […]

Every so often in life, we are fortunate enough to find a companion who loves us unconditionally; they pass no judgment, and worship the ground we walk on. These companions are known as pets, or in my family’s case, dogs. Always excited to greet me when I come home, my dog doubles as a best […]

With the holidays, come parties–lots of them. Between family gatherings, office parties, secret Santa, ugly sweater parties, and white elephant gift parties, the holidays can feel like running a marathon. Purchasing a devastating amount of gifts can be exhausting. It’s no wonder people can’t wait for this season to end. Thankfully, with fun gatherings like […]

Healthy Holiday Gifts

The holidays can take their toll on one’s body. Between holiday parties, unexpected birthday parties, and family gatherings, the amount of food–and often alcohol–one consumes, can be excessive. Before they know it, they’re celebrating the entire month of December and their body has taken on a whole new shape (probably not the one they were […]

Unlike Christmas, Chanukah lasts for eight days, not one. Sure, you could count Christmas Eve as an unofficial extension of this holiday, but that’s still only two days, not EIGHT. While some people like to celebrate Chanukah in one day, there’s always the possibility that they keep with tradition and open a gift each night […]
