Incase you thought I fell off the face of the earth..I decided that I should explain my whereabouts! I have started a small business with a friend of mine!
I promise not to abandon my blog...I still plan to share all of my "modern mom" tips, and good finds with ya!
The business that we started actually has moms in mind(shocking, I know)!!
529.Kids.Consign, is an online children's consignment boutique. The idea behind it is; save on your children's clothing and accessories now, and be able to contribute to their future.
A 529 is a college savings plan. So whether you are consigning with us, or buying from us, you will be able to save money(a foreign concept for me)!!
So, Modern Mom fans, I would love it if you would spread the word to your "mom friends", about 529.Kids.Consign.
Check us out at
Thanks for your support, and have no fear...I will be back with more great tips and fab finds very soon!

No Smudge No Budge  

If you are like me, and can not stand the sight of your eyeliner smeared under your eyes, by the end of the day, then this one is for you.
Ever since I gave birth to Ethan, I have stopped wearing eyeliner on my bottom lids.
I wonder sometimes why I look half dead, and then I realize I am not wearing eyeliner.  I just do not have time to keep checking my make-up in the mirror, and I refuse to look like a raccoon all day long! Well, I am sick of looking the way I do.. 

I was at my hair salon the other day, complaining to my stylist Barry about my eyeliner issues. I told him that I stopped wearing eye liner on my bottom lid, and my reasoning. 
That is when he told me about an eyeliner by MAC that is water-proof and does not run all over the place!

Skeptical, I went to Nordstrom and tried some on, wore it through dinner, and was amazed that when I got home it was still where it was supposed to be! 
So, of course I ran out and bought it the next day! 
MAC Powerpoint Eye Pencil is amazing! It's easy to apply and does not smudge! 
I suggest you try it! It's only $14.50.

Of course if you want the dramatic look of smokey eyes, this is not the product for you! It's perfect for your daytime looks...

The power of Oxy!!  

At the risk of sounding like an infomercial...I have to share this story and the amazing power of Oxy Clean!
My husband and I took Ethan with us to happy hour on Saturday. It was a beautiful evening so, naturally I dressed him in a new spring outfit.  We each had a glass of vino and then saw that all of our friends were in the park, across the street, with the kiddos and wine!  We decided to head over, however, I was a little hesitant, due to the "new spring outfit".  Let me explain this outfit- Ethan had on a BRAND NEW pink argyle polo shirt, with BRAND NEW white sneakers!
All was going well, as I tried really hard to keep Ethan out of the mud/dirt. A few glasses of wine in, I lost track of him for a second, and realized he was trying to get himself a cup of what he thought was "wadu"(Ethan's version of water)!  Much to our surprise, the cup that he reached for and proceeded to dump on himself was full of RED WINE!!!
Now, if you know me, you can guess my reaction!! I FREAKED!
All I could think of was "the poor pink polo"!! The wine had spilled all down the front of him and of course onto his new sneaks too!
My good friend tried to calm me down by telling me that "oxy clean will get it out"!
From a prior episode with red wine (those of you at my wedding know what I am referring to) I thought that the polo was toast!
I took my friends advice and followed her back to her house, where we sprayed a good amount of Oxy Clean on the polo and then washed it immediately.
Guess what...IT WORKED!! There was not a trace of red wine on the pink polo!!!
I was such a skeptic, and now I am a believer! That stuff really works!
So Moms, if you do not have a stain remover that you can me and go get some Oxy Clean!!
Oh BTW- the sneakers are ok too...thanks to my Clorox Wipes!!
