It’s here!! Back to School, or as some parents call it: the most wonderful time of the year. With school comes back to school shopping. For some, the list of essentials can be overwhelming. For others, back to school shopping is like Christmas in August. But it can also be a financial strain on many. School has always been a good excuse for a new fall wardrobe for kids. Thank you QVC for sponsoring this post. While this was a … Keep Reading!!!
Nomi Network is a non-profit organization based in New York dedicated to fighting human trafficking. Our organization is based on the desire to personally help women who were victims of human trafficking, by starting at the individual level.
Our co-founder Diana Mao was inspired to start Nomi Network in 2007 when she was on a business trip to Cambodia. She was shocked when a father she and some co-workers were interviewing offered his youngest daughter to a male colleague of … Keep Reading!!!
This post was sponsored by Schick… which is great because I am terrible at almost all hair removal techniques, plus I am too cheap to see a professional, and that let it grow wild and free lifestyle is really not for me… so razors really are the only viable option.
We live right down the street from UCLA, and it is always fun when August rolls around and the streets of Westwood village are suddenly filled with people again.
Occasionally, … Keep Reading!!!

And staying at hotels makes you feel fancy.
But most of all, when you visit locations outside of your comfort zone, … Keep Reading!!!

A couple months ago our kids decided to share a room. Since it was our daughter’s room for so long all the décor was chosen by her and we’ve been trying to find something to add to the room that could include our son. Minted.com offered so many beautiful wall art prints it was hard to narrow it down but in the end we went with an 11X14 print of Rules to Live By with a beautiful Distressed Charcoal Stain … Keep Reading!!!
Here at IANtB we love our children…most of the time. Every parent at some point in time has experienced frustration with their kids and one of my biggest frustrations seems to come out when I combine electronic devices and little ones. It’s a love/hate relationship. There’s no better invention than a tablet with some educational children’s apps for long road trips and visits to the doctor’s office or grocery store. At the same time, my little girl broke a cell … Keep Reading!!!
As parents, we are confronted every single day with dirty, sticky hands on our children. The thing is, as annoying as those sticky hands can be when they leave purple popsicle stains on your new shirt, they are rarely the cause of coughs, runny noses, fevers and colds. It’s the unseen germs that our kids pick up on their hands at daycare, school, the park, the bathroom and other places that are dangerous. The world is filled with germs and … Keep Reading!!!
Buying a mattress can be a huge pain. For starters, a lot of mattress stores have salespeople that work off of commission and you never know if the price they’re selling you is really the lowest price (it’s probably not). Nothing against the salespeople as they have a right to make a living, but it can make it a stressful process when you’re SUPPOSED to be buying something that helps you DE-stress. There are a lot of online stores that … Keep Reading!!!
Our family loves to travel, but there is no physical way we can take our children to all of the wonderful countries in the world to learn about their culture, food and people. That is why we started doing a monthly country study as part of our homeschooling program. This has proven to be our children’s favorite lessons throughout the month and, of course, their favorite part of the study is often when we try authentic native cuisine from the … Keep Reading!!!
May kicks off road trip season for our family and many others. Schools are about to let out for the summer and the weather is starting to get warm and stay warm across the country. Since it is Mother’s Day, we start out from So Cal and drive up to the Bay Area to visit family. However, it wasn’t too long ago that I was making this trip with my own parents and doing the exact trip in reverse with … Keep Reading!!!
