A few weeks ago, in August, I spent the most beautiful week alone in the Caribbean. It was a truly dreamy little escape from life, after which I returned home safe and sound while hurricane after hurricane decimated many of the gorgeous nearby islands, leaving people without electricity, shelter, or even water. The Cayman Islands… Read more »

I have consulted with the queen of graphic novels, my 4th grader, Scarlet, and her rowdy crew of graphic novel-loving friends to create this list of the 12 best graphic novels for kids. These are the best graphic novels for 4th graders, and some 3rd graders, and most 5th graders. They are definitely the best graphic novels for girls, according to my daughter, but they will be loved by boys too.
I can’t help but feel sentimental when in comes to Tom’s of Maine. I’ve used their products since I was a little one and it’s a tradition that I’ve continued now that I have my own family. My kids were literally begging to run off with these tubes of toothpaste as I was trying to photograph them. That’s weird right? They are dying to brush their teeth. With natural ingredients like real strawberry extract, it’s no wonder that Silly Strawberry is the #1 natural kids toothpaste and the first and only natural kids toothpaste to receive the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. I love that Tom’s of Maine Silly Strawberry has fluoride and fluoride-free options with no artificial flavors, dyes or sweeteners that I can feel good about giving my kids and that said kids willingly, and eagerly, use. Plus, it has no animal ingredients and isn’t tested on animals.
Did you know that you are supposed to brush your teeth for two minutes? Two minutes feels like a really long time when you are brushing your teeth, especially when you are little, so I appreciate all the help I can get in inspiring them to brush.
Read on for a step-by-step tutorial for a mini DIY strawberry piñata and the Silly Brushing Song (Brush Em’ Up) that Tom’s of Maine has made with artist Laurie Berkner to help remind us to brush longer.
A few weeks ago, in August, I spent the most beautiful week alone in the Caribbean. It was a truly dreamy little escape from life, after which I returned home safe and sound while hurricane after hurricane decimated many of the gorgeous nearby islands, leaving people without electricity, shelter, or even water. The Cayman Islands were shielded from the brunt of the devastation, and in typical Caymanian fashion sent their resources to help. The Cayman Islands are absolutely beautiful, I had a chance to visit two of the three and I’d like to tell you about my trip, and hopefully inspire you to visit this beautiful country with a perfect Cayman Islands itinerary. They say #CaymanKind, and they mean that the people of the islands are welcoming; I found this to be very true.
I started my trip flying through Miami to Grand Cayman, where I rented a car. I forgot that they drive on the left! Oops! But the streets are designed with travelers in mind – most of the right turns are roundabouts which makes it easy to just follow the car in front of you. Which is what I did, and checked into the stunning new Kimpton
When I woke up and saw the view from my room I was in awe. The Kimpton also had a great selection of in-room amenities (your own yoga mat! a salon quality blow dryer! free bottled water!) and a whole host of included activities like stand-up paddle boarding and snorkeling equipment.
We had the pleasure of receiving a copy of Practical Magic: A Beginner’s Guide to Crystals, Horoscopes, Psychics, and Spells, which sparked us to channel our inner spirits and delve into a witchy state of mind. Here’s what’s inspiring us for the season.
