Having raised both of our boys on Sesame Street, with them now being in 2nd grade and middle school it's so fun to have a our toddler nephew Baby Q in the house to tune into our favorite educational program to jump start our mornings. I'm a little biased, because Elmo and I share a birthday but seeing all of the fun loving characters like Cookie Monster and Abby come to life on stage is going to be such a fun experience for him because he loves to sing and show off his dance moves while learning.
This February, families can jump to the beat with their friendly furry friends on Sesame Street! Introducing an all-new, interactive show that unfolds on one of the world’s most famous streets at the funniest party in the neighborhood… get ready for Sesame Street Live! Let’s Party!

Tackling all the laundry before the New Year just wasn't going to happen but for the three full bags of linens and clothes that did get washed, we managed to fold and put them away. Moving all the bins down to storage wasn't accomplished either but we successfully purged our closets, donated items from every room and started to re-organize drawers, shelves and cabinets. What I did not want was to stress cleaning the house top to bottom before the start of the year, we took care of what we could and enjoyed our time playing tourists in the city with out-of-town family from the West coast. One thing we knew was an absolute must do for the start of 2018 was to cleanse our home spiritually by Smudging as a family for the first time. It had been a purification process that quite a few people had recommended to us & I thought it would be perfect to use wellness & lifestyle expert and author Latham Thomas's new book "Own Your Glow" as a guide.

Did you get that new puppy you asked for this year or were your Pups well behaved and gifted lots of treats? Where our old man doggy Sonic the terrier has been pretty good this year, his crazy roommate Nutella the Bully has had some very questionable moments - like sneaking into bed with the kids, stashing away snacks and getting caught in the kitchen and destroying my stash of lifestyle magazines while we were out. Yet and still even when they are at their worst, they are just too cute and we figured our two pooches deserve to start their new year off with some new goodies and yours do too! So to celebrate the holiday season and welcome the New Year we're hosting a giveaway of fun products from Miranda Lambert's collection with MuttNation, Yummy treats from DreamBone and fun toys to keep your doggies busy from Hear Doggy.

Gifting an experience seems so much cooler to me than new pajamas, a glitzy piece of jewelry or a gadget that will end up being not as trendy in just a year. In a world where we seem so caught up in who has what new hot item, creating long lasting cherished memories with loved ones is truly what the holiday season should be about. Dance is such a beautifully uniting art form that doesn't isolate or exclude, it pulls you in and captivates your spirit and mind and to me that's such a priceless gift to give and receive. You'll witness such stunning bodies of art, gracefully tell culturally rich stories to the audience of an Alvin Ailey Dance Theater performance, in a way unlike any other show you've seen. The new repertoires of work led by artistic director Robert Battle effortlessly evoke the feeling of Ailey's dictum that "dance is for everybody" as theater goers from all over witness refreshing works.

If you've visited SantaLand at Macy's 34th street in years past then you are oh so familiar with the crazy long wait as you navigate the merry maze of winter wonder, but on our recent trip our journey to see Saint Nick was only a swift 30 minutes!

There's nothing more iconic in NYC during the holidays than the stunningly lit Rockefeller tree, but wouldn't it be beyond amazing if there was a version you could actually eat? Personally, the holidays and delicious sweets go hand and hand during gatherings with family and friends so it only makes sense that GODIVA is celebrating the season in chocolate! The GODIVA team paired its chocolate chef Thierry Muret with Chocolate Genius Paul Joachim who created an innovative holiday storefront display at Rockefeller Center - a scale replica of the entire plaza and a life size Christmas Tree made entirely out of chocolate, complete with a 7’6” Chocofeller Tree (get it?), a 9’+ chocolate Rockefeller building made of petite fours, an ice-rink with skaters all lit with over 1,000 lights controlled through Twitter.
