Let’s Get HappiSnappi!

One of the many fun parts of being a mommy to a little girl is dressing her up!  In addition to the frills and tutus, there are headbands. Mommies, you know what I’m talking about – the headbands with the big flowers. There’s a part of me that finds them a little obnoxious, and then there’s a part of me that loves them!  A brand that allows for you to flex your creative muscles, and keep the obnoxious to a minimum is HappiSnappi!

With a simple snap, young girls can choose from a wide variety of snap-on/off floral embellishments that easily attach to the brand’s headbands, knit hats, necklaces, hair clips, and more. Every item has the same snaps, so you can mix and match embellishments with every piece, making the fashion possibilities endless.



The brand isn’t just mix and match – it gives back! The company, created by child therapist Karlee Ohm and her nine-year-old daughter Peyton, donates one hat to a children’s hospital for every hat purchased. Additionally, the mommy/daughter duo teamed up with Sadie Keller, a brave and courageous 9-year-old who is fighting leukemia. In an effort to find a cure by bringing attention to the issue and donating proceeds to her cause, HappiSnappi will donate 50% of online sales to the Sadie Keller Foundation for the remainder of the year.

With the holidays just around the corner, this is a great gift for that special little girl in your life, with the added bonus of having proceeds go to charity. Prices range from $3.50 to $22.50.

It was a good year to be a Queens gal, let me tell ya! Granted the Mets didn’t win The World Series, but the fact they made it that far is a huge win in and of itself, and my boro was bursting with pride!

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

I just called my husband with the perfect idea for a Valentine’s Day gift: Tickets to NBA All-Star Saturday Night. It’s something we’ve talked about doing for as long as I’ve known him, and though tickets are super-expensive, I thought now would be the best time in our lives to drop this kinda of cash because, A) It’s right here in NYC, B) We don’t have a mortgage to worry about just yet, and C) No kids and all the expenses that come with it. Both B and C will likely change soon, so I thought, Carpe Diem! But my financially responsible husband shut it down, which got me thinking about last-minute gifts. Yikes!  I gave it some thought and came up with my top three:

Dollar Shave Club Membership:

There’s no doubt about it, dudes are obsessive when it comes to their razors and what they are shaving their faces with. What better way to show you understand their neuroses than to buy into it…Literally!  Pick out a razor, choose some additional products, and like magic it will appear at his door step every month!

Amazon Instant Video Gift Card

Let’s be honest, sometimes Netflix just doesn’t cut it, and your S.O. is too cheap to rent anything online since you already pay for Netflix. Put his mind at ease and get an Amazon Instant Video Gift Card so you guys can watch what you want, when you want.


They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, so why not take him to that restaurant he’s been dying to try but never had the opportunity to go?  Valentine’s Day is the perfect holiday to do that!

Honorable Mention: Massage

It’s a little “cheap” since you’re not purchasing anything, but giving massages is hard work, and at no real benefit to you. It’s a great way to show your man you care about him without breaking the banks, and of course spending quality time together!
