Here’s the scene: your 9-year-old has been at school since 8 am with hundreds of conversations, experiences, and thoughts, but when you pick her up, it’s difficult to get more than a few vague words out of her. Is this scene familiar to other parents out there? Short of advanced spyware equipment, it’s nearly impossible to find out what really goes on at school. And what happened to those chatty preschoolers that told you every thought entering their head? Sometimes, it’s just about asking them the right questions. Here’s a simple game Sarah played one afternoon with her 9- and 7-year-olds while they’re eating after-school snacks to get them talking again (with a free printable!)…

If you’re one of those people, like myself, who lives in stripes, I have just the thing for you. Yes, striped menswear banker-style shirts are this season’s must-have. Every wardrobe needs one, because of its feminine, spring-y, laid back vibe. It’s one of those go-to pieces that is easy to pull off, while feeling totally comfortable, no matter the occasion. Better yet, if your husband or boyfriends happens to own the exact thing, just borrow it, wear it with your favorite jeans or a suede skirt, and I promise, you’ll never want to give it back:)
Fancy more? Come this way, here’s some inspiration in how to wear it… (more…)
Pom poms are having a stylish moment right now, especially on sandals. If there’s one thing I love, it’s a trend that’s easy to DIY. To join in on this fun spring trend, here’s how to make a pair for yourself (and a matching pair for your mini me)…
It’s March but it still feels like warm weather is worlds away. Our new assistant editor, Diana, has a beauty tip for winter that she and her girlfriends swear by to get through these last few weeks: lip and cheek stain. One product for both sun-kissed cheeks and rosy lips that look like you just ate fresh raspberries. An instant winter pick-me-up when your skin needs it the most (come back, sunshine and soon!). Here’s the product her friends and her swear by and some other options as well…

As I’ve mentioned before, my love for audio books runs deep. However, sometimes I want to listen to something that’s less of a commitment, more of a nibble than a full feast. Enter the podcast.
Since podcasts run the gamut in both length and topic, finding one you like is a daunting task. Literally anyone with a recording device can make a podcast, so the options are vast! I’ve listened to everything from stories about the California raisin business on Planet Money to ones about Gilmore Girls on The Gilmore Guys. The ones I listen to the most regularly tend to be human interest stories with an emphasis on families. If that interests you as well, here are my favorite podcasts in that genre (warning – these will make you cry!)…
