When Jonah was about 3-years old, I came up with a great idea one Sunday morning. It was about 9:30 in the morning and after being up at 6am, reading, watching a little television, playing with some of his toys, doing an art project, making pancakes and eating them, I was at a loss. The kid needed MORE. “What should we do nooooow, Mommy?” I probably should have dug deeper into the bag of good parenting, and encouraged some individual play then– play that didn’t require me to bring in the circus and jazz him for hours— but alas, that awesome mom guilt (which is totally worse when you’re single, I think), ...Read More
My blog post was written as part of my part of my collaboration with eBay but these views are my own. What’s the way to my guy’s heart? Golf. Whether it’s me being super  supportive and cheery (read: “I guess… if you have to”) of those Saturday morning rounds, or super supportive and cheery about those green jacket filled events (read: “The Masters are taking over my life”), I know that a little display of love and appreciation towards rolling greens with 18 holes, will go a long way. (Btw-Seriously 18 holes seems pretty extreme. Are 9 not enough?!) While down in Palm Springs for Memorial Day weekend, we popped in to ...Read More
This year, Thanksgiving and Chanukah are sharing the spotlight. For my family, this means that at 5 o’clock when the turkey coma usually sets in, we’re going to have to rally for a little dreidel and gift exchanging action. This also means that as the Thanksgiving host, (I must be out of my mind to take this on this year), in addition to getting my menu prepped and table decor in line, I’m going to have to going to have to think about gifts about a month sooner than I normally would! As a curator for eBay’s new collections program, I’ve gotten a head start on all the things I want ...Read More
Last week, eBay introduced a new feature which allows user to browse through handpicked products, grouped together in “Collections”curated experts, celebrities, bloggers, and… me! Similar to a Pinterest board, curators can aggregate whatever item(s) they’re digging within a certain genre, and users can follow us, and of course, purchase an item they might see on one of our collections. As a user myself, I’m on eBay all the time these days, scouring for just about everything (wedding related). But there are actually items that have nothing to do with “the big day” and are just things that I think are awesome or need… BPA free Containers for my ...Read More
Spring is here… So ’tis time to purge some of mama’s wardrobe and make some extra cashola so I can pay for the cute striped maxi that I haaaaaaaad to have. (It’s important to be current, isn’t it?) So, as they say, “out with the old, in with the new.” I considered having a garage sale but with eBay at my finger tips and a knack on selling, I figured it was worth a shot to list some things in my closet that I think are cute for Spring, (see below) and in perfect condition- some even NEW WITH TAGS, that just aren’t fitting me right anymore. With visions of ...Read More
Two weeks ago, I had the great pleasure of joining about 20 or so other bloggers that make up the eBay Parent Panel at the eBay headquarters in San Jose. In addition to fun dinners and outings, our two days were filled with sessions about selling on eBay. To say that I learned a thing or two about all things “how to” eBay and that I wanted to come home and start selling immediately, would be an understatement. Sitting through these sessions, I was so deeply inspired and excited: There is NOTHING that can’t be sold. From coupons to handbags to old appliances or cords, I realized I was sitting ...Read More
After making my first sell on eBay, I decided I was going to try out selling something I consider as important as air: Accessories! I recently bought a ton of jewelry from Forever 21 for an event that I never used or wore (and you can’t return it)… So why not turn my “trash,” so to speak, into another woman’s treasure… And make a little extra cash. As an eBay Parent Panel ambassador, I’m excited to continue experimenting with buying and selling. Here’s a little video I shot about my process including an extra vid so you can see the product up close. Oh, and in case you want ...Read More
Who cares about New Year’s Resolutions or getting caught Facebook Stalking when you can finally book a vacation to Turks & Caicos? Well, okay, I may be getting ahead of myself here… But based on what I’m about to tell you, I’m feeling pretty confident that some sort of luxurious escape, replete with cabana boys and cocktails is in my near future…. Why? Because I’m working with eBay! I’m very excited to announce that I have been asked to serve as an ambassador on the eBay Parent Panel! Now, here’s the deal. I’m not a master eBay seller at all. In fact, I have to be honest, I’ve never even sold anything ...Read More
