I’m in love with a fridge.

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.


Last month when I was attending the Mom 2.0 Summit conference n beautiful Laguna Nigel, I was delighted to see that Best Buy was back as a sponsor. Mostly because I really enjoy checking out the latest Samsung appliances and drooling over stuff I’ll probably never have in my own kitchen. A girl can dream. As soon as I walked in I found the coolest fridge I’ve ever seen in my life , the Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator with touchscreen. 

I texted my husband right away and he was like, “Never gonna happen dude.” and I said, “But but but it has a freaking camera inside that you can pull up from your phone while at the grocery store and if you really loved me you’d probably buy me this fridge….”


Anyway, the point is I’m really obsessed with this fridge. Here is some more information from Best By directly to explain why its the coolest ever.


This refrigerator features three built-in cameras take a picture of the inside of your fridge every time the door closes. You can then access those images anytime using your smartphone. More efficiently manage your groceries with Groceries by Mastercard, identify foods you have or need, track product expiration dates. You can even use the refrigerator to do online grocery shopping plus manage recipes and compile and share shopping lists.


Your family can share their calendars, photos, and notes directly on the Family Hub, or from their mobile devices. All communications are housed and displayed on a 21.5″ Full HD LCD resolution screen on the exterior door. The screen allows you to post, share and update calendars, pin photos, share your child’s treasured works of art, and leave notes — all with the convenience of your smartphone.


Stream your favorite music from Pandora and TuneIn Radio apps that play through the refrigerator’s built-in speaker or connect to your Bluetooth wireless speakers. You can even enjoy your favorite TV shows using screen mirroring with select Samsung Smart TVs.

So ya, tell me you don’t want this fridge. I’m going to keep dreaming about this thing.


SoCozy now found in CVS!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of SoCozy. All opinions are my own and not edited by the sponsor.

If you bottle over 20 years of experience and expertise about kids’ hair, you’ve got the SoCozy line of products created by Cozy Friedman, the woman who founded the first children’s hair salons in New York City. Before buzzwords like parabens and phthalates, Cozy adopted a higher standard for her products that relies on quality and integrity, not chemicals and preservatives.  Today, that standard is a promise: “no nasties—ever,” and that means peace of mind.

Ruby and I had way too much fun in CVS this morning. She kept saying, “THEY HAVE EVERYTHING HERE!” like it was heaven or something. The extremely friendly and helpful CVS employees and I were cracking up over her excitement. Oh to be 4 years old again.

Our love for SoCozy isn’t new and that’s because SoCozy’s brand values are something I respect:

So Smart – Genius is more like it. We believe knowledge is power, which is why education is at our core – the pulse of our brand. Advice, solutions, tips, trends – we serve as an extensive resource for moms, kids, stylists and salon owners.
So Safe – No nasties in here; just good, clean, honest formulations with ingredients that perform at the highest level. Safe and effective – and completely non-toxic – it’s great hair minus the harsh chemicals.
So Easy – Because being a parent isn’t always easy, we make haircare that is: simple, fun, multi-functional products that streamline tub time, as well as solutions targeting specific hair concerns to make styling a snap.
So Cool – Take a strand. Through our products, website, social channels and unique collaborations, we encourage and support individuality. All kids, any hair type – we make it our mission to build confidence and inspire originality. Being you is our idea of cool.

Celebrating my #Crazy8 Kids Style!

My kids are crazy. I think all kids are crazy though, right? I’m going to go with that. I love their crazy energy though! Since birth my children have allowed me to pretty much style them however I please, no questions asked. Jude did oppose a bowtie in his toddlerhood here or there but for the most part, I think they’re pretty immune to my torturing them.

That said, I try to style them in colors, themes, patterns I know they will enjoy. Ruby is a girl after my own heart, she loves glitter, pink, flowers, prints, the works. Jude is super into hats and accessories. As soon as the sunglasses go on, he starts making pouty “blue steel” faces. It cracks me up. Of course Ozzy still has no choice and will frankly be stuffed into whatever I say, but hes going to scream and try to run away from me regardless the clothing item. Its part of my cardio, getting him dressed.

If you’ve never shopped with Crazy8, they have adorable stuff! If you have shopped with them then you already know what I’m talking about.  All of the kiddos were so excited when their packages arrived from Crazy8 with new and exciting clothes!
