Wearables Are All The Rage

Anne Middleton
May 15th, 2015

Forget raising tadpoles or growing beans in a cup.  You can make a science project out of yourself these days with wearable technology.  “Wearables”, as they’re called are all the rage, and can monitor every facet of your health, from calories burned to sleep quality.  If you haven’t gotten into the wearables craze brought on by the advent of the Apple Watch, and want to dip your toes into “Science Experiment You”, we’ve got some great suggestions from T-Mobile and Verizon. The Jawbone UP Move Fitness and Sleep Tracker is a standout selection from T-Mobile that tracks your steps, exercise and overall calories burned throughout the day.

Boho is Back

Anne Middleton
May 11th, 2015

Every glossy periodical, fashion blog and style-driven Instagram account is smattered with photos of models piling on layers of loose linen, headbands and billowing, flowery frocks. Everyone wants in on the boho look, which merges hippie vibes from the 60s and 70s with relaxed, laid-back looks.  But, while models seem to be virtuosos at making boho work, real women often have a hard time pulling it off without looking that they confused the afterschool pick up line with the one for Coachella tickets.  Add structure:  Billowing layers of gauzy fabric are a hallmark of the boho look.

Commemorating Armed Forces Day

Anne Middleton
May 8th, 2015

Armed Forces Day will arrive soon!  Ever hear of it?  No, it is not the same as Memorial Day. Memorial Day, celebrated much later this month, honors and remembers those who died while serving in the military. Instead, Armed Forces Day was officially created in 1949, long before you were even a twinkle in your parent’s eyes. This distinctive event recognizes the heroes of our Armed Forces that are currently serving to protect all our freedoms.  Every branch of the military is honored on this single day which takes place on the third Saturday in May.

'Tis the Season to Graduate

May 7th, 2015

'Tis the season...to graduate. With so many hats and gowns swaying their way to the stage to that old familiar tune, Pomp & Circumstance, you may find yourself in a gift pinch. This year alone, I have 3 graduates to buy for: two high school grads (one super nerd and one...shall we say...super popular with everyone but their teachers) and one Ph.D. recipient. Obviously in this situation, a one-size-fits-all gift is out of the question. So what to buy? Having graduated high school myself a few short (wink wink) years ago, I remember how great it was to have all that cash thrown at you.

National Teacher’s Day

Anne Middleton
May 5th, 2015

Most of us adore shaking maracas and consuming margaritas and munching on nachos during the annual tradition of celebrating Cinco de Mayo.  But did you know that this year, May 5th is also National Teacher Day? This designated day for the kings (and queens) of the classroom may not be as colorful as the mariachis strumming their round-backed guitars dressed in their sombreros, but it provides an opportunity to honor our distinguished and underpaid educators.  These motivating instructors deserve all the recognition and appreciation we can muster for the enormous positive impact they make on generations of students.

Honor Your Mother with New Balance

Abbey O'Bryan
May 1st, 2015

Mother. Mom. Ma. Mama. Mommy. Mum. Mummy. Madre. The list of names she could be called is countless, but there’s only one woman who holds that exclusive place in your heart. And if you’re lucky enough to still have her here on earth with you, make sure you honor her this Mother’s Day. I consider myself one of the lucky ones. My mom is not only still here, she’s amazing in so many ways. Vibrant, healthy, loving and wise, she is a treasure in my family. And this is a seemingly small thing, but I’ve always admired how timeless she is. She always looks put-together, never frumpy, but also never fussy. Just classy, you know.

If They Could See Us Now

April 27th, 2015

If my grandparents were alive today (and I wish they were), they could never (ever) imagine the technological advances that permeate our everyday lives. They would be stunned that technology has leaped so quickly and produced such an amazing amount of changes in such a short span of time. In fact, there are numerous items that these lovable relatives of mine wouldn’t be able to fathom.

Happy Teach Children to Save Day!

Anne Middleton
April 24th, 2015

Happy Teach Children To Save Day!  Admittedly, that doesn’t sound as exciting as “Happy Birthday!” or “Merry Christmas!”  But, April 24th is a profoundly important, though unsung, holiday. Established by the American Bankers Association, Teach Children To Save Day encourages moms and dads to instruct their progeny about the importance of putting funds aside for the future. Getting the conversation about financial responsibility started actually isn’t as onerous as it seems. Most moppets love sticking dimes and nickels in their piggy banks.

Wise Ways To Spend Your Tax Refund

Anne Middleton
April 24th, 2015

The dreaded April 15th, tax deadline day, is finally over!  Itemized deductions, W2s, and complicated forms may not be much to cheer about, but that’s all behind you. Now comes the fun part… the tax refund. There’s nothing quite as much fun as seeing that sum pop into your bank account. Now it’s time to decide how to spend the funds your friends at the IRS just sent back to you. Depositing it into your retirement account or setting it aside for your kid’s college tuition might be shrewd choices, but they aren’t much fun. Instead of simply making an astute decision, look for a way to spend your refund that is both brainy and beguiling.
