When I hear the name Halle Berry, I immediately think of three things: her gorgeous face, her adorable pixie cut, and her messy break-ups. She is often in the press for her impeccable red-carpet looks, her cosmetic company endorsements, and her roller coaster of a love life. However, when it comes to giving parenting advice, her name doesn't appear on any lists that I know of. Nevertheless, one of the most important lessons I ever taught my daughters is a lesson I learned from Miss Halle Berry herself. Funny thing is, I doubt that she even knows what a perfect example she is.
When Mila Kunis made her rant about men with pregnant mates saying “we are pregnant,” I heard a collective cheer from mothers and mothers-to-be from every end of the universe. And while I understand the difference between being pregnant and being WITH someone who is pregnant, I have to say that I don’t agree. Many men and wives of doting husbands would beg to differ as well.
The TV show Married at First Sight is really nothing more than a reflection, albeit sensationalized, of the abject misery of the current dating scene and our desire to do something, anything, to make it better. In today's society, it is not at all surprising to me that 60 psychologically healthy people would sign up to be married to a stranger....more

The Sun rules the 5th sign of the Zodiac and you can tell. With the influence of the “Sun King”, we all should feel upbeat, magnanimous, a bit more dramatic and drawn to the spotlight regardless of our actual Astrology sign. Leo urges us to be generous, attention seeking, creative and full of a lion’s pride. When the Sun struts into this regal Fire sign, expect to have some fun for the duration of its stay....more
It’s a Taurus Moon beginning early Saturday morning July 19, 2014 lasting until early Monday. Feeling beautiful, stubborn and material? It might be the vibrations of this fixed, finance focused Earth sign guided by the elegant, luxury loving planet Venus. There are choices to be made about weekend plans. Either tackle those finances (how will you use your money the last 6 months of the year?) or indulge yourself, along with a significant other, with one of those delicious and decadent chocolate cakes with red raspberry filling. Money vs Romance – just remember that not all things are either/or. “AND” can often work very well too....more
Last weekend I was lucky enough to have won highly coveted tickets to the Howard Stern Birthday Bash in New York City. I brought my friend Sarah as my guest because not only is she a huge fan like myself, but she is my partner in crime and I couldn’t imagine experiencing this event without her (plus my husband had to stay back to take our daughter to a concert). From the moment we won tickets, everything else just magically fell into place. We were able to score pretty cheap flights, even though the event was the same weekend as Superbowl (and in the same city), ...more
