According to a recent zulily poll, 79% of Americans would rather find an amazing deal on something they want instead of kissing their celebrity crush! My vote wasn't counted but I couldn't agree more, as a mama to two boys and two dogs that live in NYC I'm all for scoring a good prices on the things we need from day to day. Plus The Rock, Dwayne Johnson has tons of money, a wifey and an adorable new baby so I don't foresee me getting him to pucker up anytime soon, so bring on the thrilling steals!

Do you know what makes a real hero? It's not the flashy costumes, or the cool gadgets and gizmos, It's definitely having your own awesome movie. It seems to the Teens that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own films—everyone but the Teen Titans, that is! But de facto leader Robin is determined to remedy the situation, and be seen as a star instead of a sidekick. If only they could get the hottest Hollywood film director to notice them. With a few madcap ideas and a song in their heart, the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town, determined to make their dreams of movie stardom come true. But when the group is radically misdirected by a seriously Super-Villain and his maniacal plan to take over the Earth, things really go awry. The team finds their friendship and their fighting spirit failing, putting the very fate of the Teen Titans themselves on the line!

Our summers are usually a mix of outdoor sports with the City Parks Foundation, trips to the local zoos and museums and visits to some of the city's coolest & affordable drop in classes. Ultimately my goal for our boys is to try avoid summer brain drain & balance screen time while juggling being a work at home parent so we're always on the lookout for the latest happenings across the five boroughs. This summer, Ailey Extension is offering a variety of unique dance programs for young, aspiring dancers. With one or two-week performance intensives and weekly training classes taught by New York City’s premiere choreographers and instructors, kids and teens can enjoy developing technique, enhancing musicality, and releasing creative expression. All classes take place at The Joan Weill Center for Dance – home of the world-renowned Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Ailey II, and The Ailey School.

It never fails! Once the kids start summer break us parents know dang well that the one line we'll hear on repeat over and over is "I'm hungry can I have snack?"They don't even care that they just had a fully loaded, protein filled breakfast unlike most school mornings where you toss them a banana and a bagel as you all rush your way out the door. These lil' monsters are un-phased by what time of day it is, or how much time has passed since they last asked for something to eat. They seem to want to munch on goodies non-stop, and god forbid you run out of their favorites! The snack time struggle during summer break can be really funny at times, so to introduce the launch of their new Power Ups chewy bars and creamy clusters Jif invited a few of us parents our for a night of laughs at Caroline's comedy club with funny dad and actor Neil Patrick Harris.

Can you believe we're already half way through June? I'm not sure where the time went exactly but the official start to Summer is just a few days away and NYC kids will officially be out of school next week, which means we're counting down to a few weekend trips and two family reunions. This month I co-hosted a travel themed lunch and learn at midtown restaurant Quality Italian, alongside Suzannne and Josh of Techlicious on behalf of CES and the Consumer Technology Association. NYC local influencers in attendance were invited to learn all about the latest and greatest tech products to take with them on their summer adventures. Bloggers and Editors were able to get hands on with the best gadgets to keep their families entertained and gained insight on tech safety tips and on how to use technology to make the most of their trip. We all know life's just that much easier and enjoyable with a few tech essentials to kill time, especially during travel time, we have a few layovers coming up so the hubby and I were eager to discover some new finds.
