• Ukshellan Natural Latex Foam Contour Pillow Review

    Who knew it would be so hard to find the absolutely perfect pillow to sleep on? With all the choices out there, seriously, how do you narrow it down?

    Options for Fertility Preservation after Ovarian Cancer Diagnosis

    Ovarian cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer death in women. Typically affecting older women—the average age is 63—another subset of the female population can develop the condition at a much younger age. Researchers say that 1 in 10 women will develop a cancer during their childbearing years and for those who develop ovarian cancer, special consideration must be given to protecting a woman’s eggs or reproductive tissue. This is referred to as fertility preservation. Cancer treatments like chemotherapy or radiation can dramatically effect or eliminate a woman’s ability to have biological children later. Preservation is a decision that cannot be made lightly and it’s important that patients work…

  • Here Comes The Bride!!

    Nooooo, I’m not getting married. And neither is my adorable model 5-year-old Alice. But this dress made Alice feel like a bride! So much so that we spent an entire afternoon making the living-room bride central. We started with Alice’s pretend make up set where I channeled my inner Bobbi Brown and did her subtle make up to make her inner beauty shine. (Am I good or WHAT!!??) Alice would hold the mirror as I applied her makeup. I would say ‘do you see how this color brings out your eye color?’ Alice actually SAW color and would say “YOU are RIGHT!” I love, love, LOVE imagination play!! When Alice’s…
