Eating my way through beautiful Rochester in Western New York didn't cover nearly enough food, so I plan on heading back in 2017! I got a tease of a taste, a little amuse bouche, if you will. Next trip up, I'm hitting the BBQ places, but this time definitely wet my whistle for a lot [...]

Wii U Skylanders Imaginators gets two thumbs up from The Boy

By | December 21, 2016|Featured, Reviews|Comments Off on Wii U Skylanders Imaginators gets two thumbs up from The Boy

Wii U Skylanders Imaginators gets two thumbs up from The Boy. The issue I have with it? I don't understand anything about it, and The Boy's addiction to this Skylanders franchise is freakishly strong. As much as I try, and try, and tryyyyy, I just don't get the fascination. I pressed The Boy for what [...]

The Strathallan Hotel located in the heart of Rochester’s cultural & historic districts

By | December 12, 2016|Featured, Reviews, Travel|Comments Off on The Strathallan Hotel located in the heart of Rochester’s cultural & historic districts

The Strathallan Rochester is located in the heart of Rochester's cultural and historic districts, and since it's a DoubleTree by Hilton property, you get a warm cookie when you check-in. Sweet! Especially after realizing everything at the hotel closes up rather early on a Thursday night, and I've just landed at Greater Rochester International Airport. JetBlue [...]

By | December 5, 2016|Featured, Reviews, Travel|Comments Off on Brilliant with a side of personality: Ward Stare

Brilliant with a side of personality doesn't even cover Ward Stare. His talent is extraordinary, and the fact that he's from my home state of New York, brings a sense of pride. I'd have never known of him, or his talents, if not for my daughter's desire to play Viola for her school's orchestra. Go [...]

Sonic skin cleansing brushes are my new boring girl beauty pick of the year! Especially when it comes to my face, because my hands aren't efficient to remove all the dirt from my face. Nor is a face cloth, if I'm being honest. I'm a simple girl, a boring girl, if you please. I don't [...]

Joules adds a pop of color to rain season

By | September 21, 2016|Featured, Lifestyle, Reviews|Comments Off on Joules adds a pop of color to rain season

Joules adds a pop of color to rain season, for sure. Honestly, there's no real rain season in New York anymore. There's no real "season" of anything. It all seems to be crazy, strange, out of season weather phenomena. When the rains do come? They hit like mother nature has something to prove to the [...]

James Patterson is one of the most well-known, and well-loved, authors in the world. I mean, he's a native of New York, so of course, he's fabulous, right? American authors like Patterson are few, and far between. However, his novels are too sophisticated for my kids. They aren't old enough to handle Alex Cross, and [...]
