The 5th Annual BCBeauty Bash for moms and moms-to-be

The 5th Annual BCBeauty Bash for moms and moms-to-be
Most moms I know don’t exactly have a beauty routine.

Moms are busy. If you... Read more »

Secrets of City Moms with the gals from Bump Club and Beyond

Secrets of City Moms with the gals from Bump Club and Beyond
Last weekend, I was fortunate to be part of a Bump Club and Beyond panel of "city moms" talking to a packed room of new parents and their little ones at Bubbles Academy. I was in good company, joining Samantha Lande from Eater Chicago and Kelly Aiglon from Red Tricycle Chicago. We talked about everything from family-friendly restaurants to best free story times and museums for the two and under set. I spoke a little bit about finding activities that meet two important mama criteria. First, I love a free, quality activity when I can find it (if you read Wee Windy City, you already know this about me). In addition, I also love an outing where both mommy and the kids get something out of it. With those two things in mind, I recommended the following urban activities and destinations. The Culture Club: Take advantage of the local cultural institutions. Yes, you can do this -- even with your baby. One of the reasons that I wanted to raise my kids in the city was proximity to the many cultural opportunities and experiences.

Free city fun for new moms and their babes
This morning I was part of a Bump Club and Beyond panel of "city moms" talking to a packed room of new mamas and their little ones about bringing up baby in Chicago. I was in good company, joining Kelly Aiglon and Lindsay Gladstone of Daily Candy Kids, Samantha Lande from Eater Chicago, Cindy McCarthy of On the Go Chicago, Rebecca Little of Pinwheel and my bestie and business partner Sara Fisher of Self-Made Mom fame.  We talked about everything from family-friendly restaurants to navigating the CTA with a stroller and the best places to buy high-end kid's resale. I spoke a little bit about finding activities that meet my two pieces of criteria. First, I love a free, quality activity when I can find it (if you read Wee Windy City, you already know this about me). In addition, I also love an outing where both mommy and the kids get something out of it. With those two things in mind, I recommended the following urban activities and destinations...

Ready or not, here come the holidays!
93.9 FM (aka "The Lite") has already started with the holiday music. Local retailers have begun their excessive decorating. I've starting dreaming about peppermint bark.

I am sure that your calendar is filling up with holiday events and activities, but I wanted to mention a few upcoming opportunities that I think you'll be interested in...
