Blowout Bar – Be Styled Wellesley and Chestnut Hill

Everywhere we go, strangers always come up to my kids to admire their curly hair. Then, they turn to me and ask where did they get the curls? It is at that moment that my cover is blown. I mean, really…isn’t the fact that I blowout my hair something akin to not sharing my weight? […]

Sweet Ceramics from Zinnia Designs

One baby memory I love to do is get a baby hand print and foot prints of my children. I did it for my son three years ago and recently did it for my daughter. I love that it captures a moment in time, and I love that it’s done by a local Metrowest Mama […]
