4 Ways to Wear It: Prepare to be wowed

4 Ways to Wear It: Prepare to be wowed

A few months ago, I raved about convertible accessories when I guest posted on The Centsible Life. Pieces that can be worn more than one way aren’t just chic, they’re smart–a smart way to save.

I love discovering new ways to wear old favorites. Which is why I’m so excited to share this video with you. Here, I show not just two ways to wear a simple $42 wrap bracelet, but four ways: as a bracelet,…

Making Fit Fun for the Little Ones

Making Fit Fun for the Little Ones

I love opportunities to encourage kids to get moving, and while my kids are already super active, new ideas are always embraced. We were recently were sent samples of LeapFrog’s new LeapBands to encourage Little and her friends (ages 4-7) to be even more active, while having a lot of fun and being encouraged by a little digital critter.

The LeapBand is a digital tracker, only it’s a lot more fun…

My letter to my PA Congressman regarding new graduation requirements

My letter to my PA Congressman regarding new graduation requirements

I’m writing to express my disdain of the Keystone Exams as a graduation requirement. As an educator, educational writer, parent, and alumnae of a PA public school system, it is disturbing that an exam created by an outside source is being required for the students to pass in order to graduate.

Pennsylvania needs to show more trust in our school systems, our educators and our students. Students…

September Meal Plan

September, we hear you calling. You *want* us to pull out the slow cooker and start making chilis and soups, don’t you? Well, here at Julieverse, we did that a dreadfully hot Saturday night and enjoyed our first tastes of the upcoming season. And while I’d rather stick with grilling salmon and burgers and chicken and vegetables, I so know where this is going. Gladly, the September menu plan has a…

Get your Back to Sports season in order

Get your Back to Sports season in order

This time of year isn’t just Back to School season, it’s also Back to Sports season, especially if you’re a SportsMom. After a relaxing break, it’s a bit of an ice bucket of water over your head to not only organize your back to school life, but to mix that in with a hectic schedule of after school practices, extracurriculars, games and meets.

StitchFix #4

That’s right. It’s time for my fourth #fix. You may recall that #3, which people usually love, was a total and complete bust for me. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting much when my inbox told me my order was on its way. I didn’t get the little jolt of excitement when the box was piled on my porch. And, when I opened my box and peeked at the preview sheet, I thought, “sigh. Really? Is #StitchFix just…

Grab the Grab the Goodies App to Open the Alcohol Conversation with Your Kids

Grab the Grab the Goodies App to Open the Alcohol Conversation with Your Kids

There are so many things we have to talk about with our children. So many (un)fun things to discuss with them: sex. drugs. rock and roll. And alcohol. All are such a difficult prospect, the talks. So many of these things we’ve experienced and understand and know they’ll, likely, experience at some point–but we want that point to be later. Much later.

So, what’s the easiest way to bring up the…

Enter to win a 32 GB iPad Mini

Enter to win a 32 GB iPad Mini

It’s not everyday that you’re offered an iPad Mini, is it? I mean, if it were, my son wouldn’t have saved for a year to buy his last week. (And I’m so, so proud of him!) For about 10 months, he’s been turning away from the Pokemon cards, Under Armour socks and T-shirts, and XBox games. He ignored the talk, advertising and pressure to buy whatever is hot. He’s learned even more about value.
