Pink Popcorn

When John and I lived in NYC and I was working long hours as a television reporter my guilty pleasure was watching movie trailers on Moviefone late at night before bed. (Don’t poke fun. For me it has always been the simple things in life…) I didn’t have time to go to the movies so… read more

Overheard in our bedroom…

I have neck issues so I spend 15 minutes stretching my neck pre-bedtime. This provides me with a perfect window of time for pillow talk with my husband John. Poor guy… Here’s where things went the other night. Me: Sweetie, do you think it’s safe for Em to go to that Chelsea Piers Gymnastics camp… read more

Best Books: Wonder

Sometimes the things most simply said can have the greatest impact on us all.

March: Links I Love

Tie one on! A beautiful bracelet to make for this summer. Ever felt somebody creeping up on you in line? Maybe they need a lesson in etiquette.

The Best Breakfast Smoothie

I have seldom met a smoothie that counts as breakfast (I am usually an egg and toast kind of girl) but I promise this one is hearty. I guzzle one of these at 8am and it usually keeps me satisfied until noon. It’s easy to make, full of protein and fiber, and truth be told… read more

Beauty Buzz: Beautycounter

When I was young I slapped on whatever face cream I grabbed from a shelf at the local pharmacy (price played a large role in my selection). My go-to shampoo and conditioner was made by Suave. Remember that one that had such a distinctive smell? I was young and naive then but now I know… read more

Hello From: Chronicles of Him & Her

One of the things I’ve enjoyed most about being a blogger is the market research. Since starting The Sentimentalist I have spent hours upon hours (John recently asked me if I had gotten to the end of the internet?!?) getting to know other blogs.

A mystery unfolded in our home 2 weeks ago… One evening as the girls nibbled away at dinner I peeked outside the front door to see a large parcel from Amazon. I carried the box inside and opened it up to find a book inside called The Day the Crayons Quit and there with the… read more
