How to choose vitamins for kids to go back to school

And I’m not talking about backpacks and notebooks…

How to choose vitamins for kids to go back to school

Congratulations MBMoms! You’ve made it to the midway point of the first week of school OR it might be the first day for your older kiddos (you old pros!). I just love seeing everyone’s sweet pictures on Facebook! It makes me feel equally excited and terrified for #dailybabyavery’s first day of school down the road…

I used to love back-to-school time as a kid…crisp school supplies, new clothes, a fresh lunchbox and backpack. But, I was definitely forgetting about the 17 REAL back-to-school necessities. Also, how to choose vitamins for kids to go back to school. My friend suggested for me to check out Kids multivitamins since they really helped her kids. So I’ve done some research into them and found some fantastic options. Continue reading 17 Necessities for Back-to-School

At the Boca Resort, Sit Back & Say Spa-ahh…


Waldorf Astoria Spa WM

Remember all of the glorious free time you used to have BEFORE you became a Modern Boca Mom?

Ha- me neither!

And that’s why (when I do manage to schedule some valuable ‘me-time’) I try to maximize it accordingly.

Before motherhood, I rarely spent my free time doing things like “taking a day at the spa,” but by God if I haven’t earned that day (or precious few hours) by the time I’m able to nail it on the iPhone calendar now!

At that point, sometimes I feel like I’ve earned an actual vacation…or a day at the Boca Resort Spa! Continue reading At the Boca Resort, Sit Back & Say Spa-ahh…

 Salt Suite South Florida

I’m always intrigued when I find a business in South Florida that I haven’t encountered in New York City previously.  I mean, Boca’s Shake Shack is soooo 2010. 😉

I, like many others, consider NYC to be the center of the universe.  Therefore, anything that’s worth anything has ‘been done’ there first, right? Continue reading MOMpreneur Monday: The Salt Suite

Belly Love Has a Whole New Meaning…

When I was pregnant with #dailybabyavery in NYC, I was thrilled to discover (what I nicknamed) the “Disney World of Maternity,” located conveniently on 57th Street and Madison Avenue (4/19/16 UPDATE: It is now closed, I just found out. Completely devastated for my pregnant NYC friends).  I knew now I had to find a South Florida Pregnancy spa. 

It was a Destination Maternity complex that included two stores, a fitness studio and a spa. A one-stop shop if you will for anything pregnancy-related. I could buy a formal maternity dress, get fitted for a nursing bra, take a Pilates class and get a facial all in one building. Genius! Continue reading Belly Love Has a Whole New Meaning…
