Fragrance Shopping Reimagined: Pinrose


My first real job in high school was as a fragrance model.  Yep, I was the often dreaded girl who would approach you in your local shopping mall's major department store and ask you if you'd like to try on a scent.  And as one might imagine, I absolutely wreaked of that particularly scent by the end of the day.  It was on my skin, on my clothes, and in my hair.  It paid well and I met a fair amount of interesting people, but oh how I smelled.

If you personally know anyone with a nut allergy, you likely can relate to the fact that the companies and people that make good foods that are nut-free are looked at with hero like status by those impacted.  Two of my 5 kids have nut allergies, so you could say that I'm doubly aware of just how important these brands and the people behind them are.  The dangers of doing something as basic as eating are all too real for us and I'm always excited to share the news about brands that offer my kids safe and great tasting foods.

If your child's Halloween costume inspired by a tv show or movie?  According to a recent article by Forbes, 7 of the top 15 most-searched costumes for 2014 are inspired by movies.

If the data Forbes shared is right, you can expect to see plenty of Frozen Characters, Zombies, Ninjas, Pirates, Clowns, Witches, Vampires, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Book of Life Characters, Flappers, Batmans, Despicable Me(s), Maleficents, Monster High girls, and Star Wars characters at your door.

A Gift for your favorite Nerd? Nerd Block & Nerd Block Jr. Subscription Boxes


All 4 of my sons are pretty hardcore athletes.  The oldest competes on his college's track team, the 2nd oldest is on both the varsity football and track team at his high school, and the twins do all the little sports team stuff available for their age group.  However, they all also share a passion for geekier activities like playing video games, and watching Star Wars marathons.
