Ahhh… to have full, luxurious hair. Truly, it would be a dream come true. And, while naturally thick hair seems to be more a factor of genetics, there are remedies to help the less fortunate in the hair department (like, ahem, me.) My hair is naturally frizzy, so any sort of humidity causes my hair to [...]

WE ARE SPARTANS!! This is the mantra I kept repeating over and over to myself this past weekend as I competed in the incredibly difficult Spartan Race. When I say difficult, I mean it was literally the hardest thing I’ve ever done physically and mentally. But, can I tell you how proud I am of [...]

Let’s face it, life can be stressful sometimes. One of the best ways to relax and unwind is going to a yoga class. There’s something so soothing about taking an hour of your day to focus on meditation and your body while in a room with others doing the same. It’s a zen-like workout (because yoga can [...]

You read it right. The “ugly sandal” is this summer’s hottest trend. Of course, “ugly” is up for debate on this issue. Sandals — like Birkenstock’s — with wide straps covering the top part of your foot are all the rage with fashion trendsetters. Perhaps the more “nature-loving,” “book-obsessed” types have been rocking the shoes [...]

There’s nothing quite like a cool popsicle to survive the hot, sweltering, summer days. I’d even argue that melted popsicles all over ones face is basically a right of passage from childhood. Despite their delicious appeal, most popsicles are loaded with enough sugars, dyes, and artificial ingredients to make any mom worried about overloading their [...]
“Re-gifting” and is one of my family’s goofy traditions when we get together for the holidays. My mom is the best at it, because she’s lucky and is always winning little things to use for our white elephant gift exchange. This year, she won a trip to Tahiti as the grand prize of our dream getaway contest, [...]
We’ve created a list of our five favorite DIY backyard games for kids that will get your kiddos to put down the electronics and enjoy playing outside.

One of my favorite things about summer is all the outdoors activities. This last weekend, for example, my family and I went to a local street fair and farmer’s market. Don’t you just love going to these? I sure do. I love the atmosphere; people spending time with their friends and family, enjoying leisurely afternoons [...]

The summer months are one of the busiest times for travel. In fact, a study by Orbitz ranked weeks in June and August in the top five busiest travel weeks of the year.

Over Memorial Day Weekend, I drove to Northern California with my boyfriend for his little brother’s graduation from San Jose State University. We only had one day off and wanted to explore San Francisco. Let me say this, the city is absolutely beautiful and full of so many amazing must-see-and-do things. But narrowing everything down [...]

“I wish you had maternity swimwear!” is a sentiment we often hear.

There are a lot of Hapari fans out there who are moms. It makes sense, really, because Hapari was founded by two moms who thought women looking for swimmer shouldn’t have to sacrifice style just to find a good, comfortable fit at a reasonable price. But this particular blog post isn’t about swimwear. It’s [...]
