First Skateboard Purchase at Labor Skate Shop in New York City

I'm new to anything skate boarding related.  There's terms like deck..gliding..nose..rail..fakie?!  It's all a foreign language to me, but despite my lack of knowledge of it, my son has somehow picked up interest in it.  Anytime your child shows an interest in something unique..well you jump on board, and that's what we did.  My son is going to be

Fun & Interactive Paw Patrol "All Paws on Deck Playland" by Jakks Pacific

Children find the most fun in the simplest of items.  Many times, we as parents overcompensate on items for them.  It's a well known fact that bubble wrap and cardboard boxes are considered treasured fun to most children.  To me, among those simple fun items are balls.  We don't give simple colorful balls and an inflatable play space enough credit.  This Nickelodeon Paw Patrol - All Paws on Deck Playland from Jakks Pacific is one of those must have items for all young children.  It will provide hours of fun for the Paw Patrol fans, and non fans alike.  This play set is complete with balls and inflatable play land that is both educational and fun.

For most of the areas of the country it's already time for back-to-school!  That means many different things for many people but one thing we can all relate to is preparing lunches for our children.  I'm a homeschooling, food allergy mom which means meals, and snacks are prepared all day long.  No, really, all day long.  I make something, and by the time I get ready to step out of the kitchen, someone is hungry again.  I'm sure many

One of the leaders in protective cases for your high tech devices, Speck showcased some of their latest at the #BBNYC New Product Expo last week.  Among those high quality cases were the Speck Candy Shell clear cases with glitter!  They are absolutely beautiful.  I never thought I'd say that about a phone case, but it's so nice to the touch and oh so sparkly to look at.  Not cheap glittery eyeshadow sparkle, but classy.  I got the color
