Whether you need to organize LEGOs, corral Polly Pockets, or secure squirrely Squinkies, the Swoop bag has been our go-to recommendation for smart, easy toy orgnization. And now they’ve got a new to-go version made just for travel,that’s just as sturdy and brilliant as the larger version.
When I first discovered Baby Buggy, the remarkable organization that helps new mothers most in need, I was instantly captivated. As a new mom myself, I wanted to know what I could do to help.

If you’re a LEGO fan, a fine art photography fan, a kid, or just a cool adult (which, of course you are) you’re going to flip over this exhibit.
Watching The Academy Awards always gets me excited to watch more movies, but maybe not the best movies for kids. In fact I’m sure that 99% of them are way too much for little ones (and, often, me) to handle.
Luxe alert: I was introduced to the 100% natural, nontoxic Tata Harper Skincare at Canyon Ranch this summer. It was a moment of seriously posh pampering in my otherwise ordinary life, and an incredibly soothing experience. Luckily, it’s a splurge you can enjoy at home, too. So if you know someone who could use some pampering and serious self-care after a long year (including you!), you might just want to give Santa the heads-up.
I am old enough to remember the original Annie on Broadway, starring Andrea McArdle. That show had me and a zillion other little girls dreaming of living in a mansion with a swimming pool and a cute dog—although maybe keeping our own parents. So when I heard Annie was coming back to Broadway this year, I jumped at the chance to bring my daughters to a preview.
We adore this new trend of “buy one, donate one” products, in the model of TOMS Shoes. And now there’s one more, from a mom of two who took a personal tragedy and turned it into a truly inspiring company.
Though my kids are mildly amused by the stories of my youth (_what do you mean, there was no internet?_), they are much more fascinated by stories about kids from faraway lands. So I’m excited to find a new series of globe-trotting books that offers my kids a glimpse of life outside of our suburban town.
Even as a lifelong New Yorker (more or less), I love that there’s always something new to do in Manhattan. Not just because there are new shops and museums and restaurants popping up all the time; but because there are so many old ones that you simply never noticed before.
My family’s trip to Azul Beach Hotel in Cancun a few years ago was one of our all-time favorite vacations. And that’s saying a lot, considering we traveled with our (then) three kids under the age of 4, including a 3-month old.
We just returned from our third tent-camping excursion, and while I wouldn’t call us back-country experts, I’ve learned a lot since that first trip when I was still nursing a toddler while trying to keep the other two from falling into the campfire.
