I’m a little obsessed with points. In fact, I shop according to whether or not the store provides points for purchases. If there is no reward program, I’ll search for a similar store that provides one. Shoppers Drug Mart has been my store of choice for years. I’ve been shopping here for all of my personal and body care needs for years and years. Their Optimum points can be used to save actual cash on purchases (win-win). Just recently, Shoppers Drug Mart has built a media/ information hub for their Life brand called Get the Most Out of Life to […] Continue reading →

Monica & Andy

Where have you been all my life? I was recently introduced to Monica & Andy’s line of children’s wear, baby layettes and accessories and I have to say, I’m smitten… and slightly jealous of the new mothers who get to experience this line of coziness. This Chicago-based apparel and blanket company carries a full line of products that are top notch. I’ve come across hundreds upon hundreds of baby blankets and muslin blankets, but Monica & Andy are on point and dare I say…slightly ahead of the game with their line. The Coming Home blanket is oversized and drapes beautifully […] Continue reading →

It’s funny because I was just interviewed by Metro New York on the upcoming maternity trends and Minkoff touched on many of them with this collection. Graphic tees with cute sayings are in this season. It’s not something we’ve seen […] Continue reading →
