There are a lot of truly fabulous things about being a blogger and one of my favorites is the ability to review places like the Marilyn Monroe Spa in Midtown. They invited me to enjoy their signature manicure and pedicure the day after we returned from Switzerland and let me tell you…there was no better way to unwind from the crazy travel than enjoying some good old fashioned pampering at their spa.

My darling Mia…you’ve had your first turn around the sun, 12 months, 52 weeks, 365 days and yet it all seems to me like one blink of an eye. Your birthday started on a hot Miami morning.

I love seeing what’s new in the…

So, I know what you’re thinking…is she really writing about a bag? Yep, I am…because this isn’t just a new bag for me, it’s my new “diaper” bag for Mia. Double whammy! For me, a diaper bag always seemed like a weird thing to buy…especially a designer one. I mean, what do you do with it when you don’t need it anymore? It’s not like you’ll be toting around that bag as a purse…or do you?? Anyway, I know spending crazy money on a diaper bag seems impractical, but at least I know that this  bag will 100% be used…
