My Adidas sneakers – follow up

Some of you might remember how I was on the hunt for a new pair of running sneakers and after trying on several I decided on the Adidas Ultraboost X. They were comfortable and hugged my foot and gave support (or so I thought). Well […]

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens…  Nah, not quite. I’m more of a dog person. 😉 It’s snowing right now here in New York. Not just a dusting, but a blizzard type snow. News reports are calling it a “bomb cyclone”. Crazy, right? I’m […]

Black shoulder bags – test your brand knowledge

Happy Monday, everyone! Christmas is ONE WEEK from today!!

Here’s a little quiz/game/something random for you today. 🙂

Can you figure out the brand of each of these bags just by looking at them?

How about the prices? Before you click on them, try to figure out how they would be sorted from lowest to highest price and then click on them to see if you’re right.

Comment below and share if you were right!

ACE Comic Con Long Island / The rest of the photo

So, you might have noticed that the photo I shared yesterday of Henry Cavill and my son was cropped from another photo. We met both Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot on Sunday! The picture we have feels like 2 in 1. We have the photo […]

Gluten free “pancakes”

Gluten free “pancakes”

I’m still waiting to hear back from my doctor on whether or not I’m allergic to gluten, but in the meantime I’m avoiding gluten (for the most part). I feel better when I do, so I’m rolling with that.

I made these pancakes and they taste really good guys!

Here’s what you need…

  • One banana – mash it up with a fork
  • Two eggs
  • Dash of baking powder – like 1/8 tsp
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips

Whisk it up and pour it out like pancakes on a griddle. Cooks really quickly. Like a min on each side

I topped mine (about 4 small pancakes) with Kerry gold butter and maple syrup and some more chocolate chips (because why not?!)

WDW – Animal Kingdom

WDW – Animal Kingdom

We had a WILD time (haha corny I know) at Disney’s Animal Kingdom park! It wasn’t too crowded which was nice… or maybe it was just that everyone was waiting on line for the new Avatar rides? We walked to the new world of Pandora […]
