The Pantone color report features New York Fashion Week Spring 2016 runway designers and their color infatuations along with Pantone’s Top 10 Color picks for the S/S 2016 season. “Colors this season transport us to a happier, sunnier place where we feel free to express a wittier version of our real selves,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. Additionally, “there are truly no perceivable distinctions in color choices between the men’s and women’s collections, both focus on a desire to breathe and reflect, then play.”

#MoMA PS1 #Volkswagen reach a worldwide audience including my #family!

Volkswagen, Partner of Culture and Arts MoMA PS1

Its so true the arts transcend people and places. The MoMA had to be one of the most glamorous and exciting places in NYC to be! I went with my daughter, to support the arts.  As a mother and On Air Parenting Expert, arts and my work  go hand and hand in our household, inspiration comes in so many forms and it pops out brings happiness to all areas of our life.The arts have so many benefits for adults and children, from reducing stress, to aid in real life problem solving, art education strengthens problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. The experience of making decisions and choices in the course of creating art carries over into other parts of our life. Art is a way of making things better! I love creating and the creatives of the world, as you can see me on the far left in pink having a great conversation about the beautiful event. The food, guests, the atmosphere were amazing.

For the next two years, the Volkswagen Group of America will be the lead sponsor of educational programming for the Museum of Modern Art, New York (MoMA), and will back major exhibitions including MoMA PS1’s survey of local artists, Greater New York, opening this autumn at the Queens museum.

Since 2011, the North American arm of the German carmaker Volkswagen has supported a number of special events and shows at both museums. Now, the collaboration will expand to cover further educational projects, particularly focusing on the museums’ digital learning initiatives, such as online courses and multimedia guides. The sponsorship deal will also include a series of talks to take place at MoMA and internationally, a curatorial training fellowship at MoMA PS1, and the extension of the Queens museum’s popular Sunday Sessions series of installations and performances, which took place in a distinctive temporary dome in its courtyard. MOMAPS1-20150625-7557


My friend is in the blue hat to the right!! "hi"


Volkswagen will also continue to sponsor exhibitions, including the survey show Greater New York 2015 (11 October-March 2016), which takes place every five years. Instead of focusing on emerging artists, however, this iteration will include more established artists and take a historic view of the city’s art scene. The curatorial team, led by MoMA PS1’s curator and associate director of exhibitions and programmes, Peter Eleey, includes the art historian Douglas Crimp, who organised the influential exhibition on the Pictures Generation of artists in the late 1970s; Thomas Lax, MoMA’s associate curator of media and performance art; and Mia Locks, the assistant curator at MoMA PS1.MOMAPS1-20150625-7463MOMAPS1-20150625-7497“Volkswagen is das auto, and MoMA is das museum,” says the chairman of the board of directors for Volkswagen Group of America, Martin Winterkorn, in a press release. “The renewal of our partnership is a reflection of our commitment to an internationally recognised art institution, and it demonstrates Volkswagen’s engagement in the fields of arts, education and social matters.”

Men Need to Cover Up Too! We can all use a little healing cover up!

Men Need to Cover Up Too!

Girls, ever given your guy a hickey? Guys, ever have acne you wish you could cover up?  Maybe a tattoo, scar we have you covered. Guys have acne, scars and hickies too! Don’t worry guys, G2 Organics has the perfect solution for you. 

The Hickey Stick isn’t just for women, it can be used by men as well. It’s packaged like a cigar so guys don’t have to feel feminine when buying and using it. Also, it’s small enough for guys to carry with them (since they obviously don’t use purses!) It’s a simple, easy-to-use cover-up that heals as it covers; the Hickey Stick has natural ingredients, like Vitamin E, to help heal what it is covering. It also contains ZINC which helps as a sunscreen.

“I had to go to court and hated to walk in with a sty on my eye. Not only did the Hickey Stick cover it, but it helped heal it too.”

The Hickey Stick is great at covering acne as well. It does double work as a spot treatment and as a spot concealer.www.g2organics.com

“The Hickey Stick can’t hurt, it can only help. Who wants to look at my pimple?”

No one likes having a pimple on their face, so why is it okay for only women to cover them up? Guys get acne too, and the Hickey Stick is here to cover it up.

Nobody’s perfect, so what do you have to cover? This is a perfect gift for your man! YES DAD"S will use, once they use it once they are hooked.

I loved having a fresh eye when I had a professional organizer come to my home, after I used the ideas she gave me I noticed the chi was flowing, yes the energy felt so much better, after bags were donated and old toys and furniture given away. Organization is an integral part of feng shui. Feng shui is, ultimately, about energy flow. Clutter, disorganization and grime are all energy blocks. Those energy blocks can be removed with an investment of time, attention and sometimes, money. When you make a point of surrounding yourself with only the things you love and use regularly and you spend time caring for them, there’s going to be more flow in your life. Everywhere you look you’ll see things that remind you of love and purpose. You’ll be able to spend more time in appreciation. That’s focus first on organization, clutter clearing and a good green cleaning with my clients. All of those things set the stage for enhanced energy flow and allow space for new, beneficial things and experiences to come in. Katia was great, she had two baskets and we sorted and thre away in seconds, as my heat raced thinking…omg I might need that! LOL, some of the doodads have been in the draws for years, never !Beauty and Inspiration A common feng shui strategy is to choose art and other objects that depict things you'd like to see manifest in your life, whether success, love or inner peace. In the bedroom, practitioners suggest hanging your favorite piece of art on the wall opposite your bed. "The last thing you see before you go to sleep and the first thing you see when you open your eyes should be something that makes you feel joyful and inspired," 

IMG_1662If your direct view from the bed is of an adjoining bathroom or a messy closet, screen those views with curtains, folding screens or simply by closing the door. Also, put down the toilet seat at night, lest the bedroom's energy go right down the drain.

Another thing not to place opposite, next to or over the bed (and definitely not on the ceiling, which is a crime against more than just feng shui) is a mirror. In addition to bouncing too much energy around the room to allow for good rest, these reflective surfaces are thought to magnify problems and worries — and some feng shui practitioners even say that mirrors in the bedroom can invite a third party to interfere in your relationship. But no worries, just move or soften the mirror, hang a curtain, place plant in front.

IMG_0883

Energy:  Here, I’m talking about “raising your vibrations”. If that’s setting off your woo-woo meter, please stay with me. The purpose of organizing is to raise your energy levels. When we focus on expansion and increasing our energy levels, we’re able to do more, have more fun, spend more time in appreciation and enjoyment. We have more energy to transform our negative thought patterns and feelings into ones that feel better. I’m talking about being “on top of your game”. That’s the goal, here. Getting to that goal requires that you focus energy, time and appreciation on your physical space because you are a part of reflects who you are.

COLOR, go for it!

Mar 23, 2015 – Um, gross! After a sexy date night with her much younger boyfriend,Kris Jenner was caught rocking a hickey on her neck.

The Hickey Stick is a high performance cover-up, with a formula that is thicker than a concealer and easily covers bruises, pimples and blemishes in 2 easy steps!

For the past few months, there had been a lot of rumors about whether or not Corey Gamble and Kris Jenner were really a couple, but the latest episode of "Keeping up with the Kardashians" has definitely confirmed the relationship – after Kim made some seriously awkward comments! I remember it was confirmed with Kim and Kanye after her spotted hickey now its confirmed with Kris and Corey after her spotted hickey. The men like to mark their territory and the women wear them proudly, then like to conceal.

13 MANNERS to review with our kids! A refresher never hurts anyone! Parents we need reminders too.

 13 MANNERS to review with our kids! A refresher never hurts anyone! Parents  we need reminders too.

images-8

1. Say "please" and "thank you." The two benchmarks of good manners, but sadly lacking today, despite the fact that teaching kids to say them is a simple process of reminding them.

2. Make eye contact. Personal interaction requires some level of engagement, and unless there are special circumstances, eye contact is the bare minimum.images-9

3. Chew with their mouths closed. Nobody likes the site of chewed up food, and open mouths increase the chance of things falling out.

4. Don't interrupt. Unless it's an emergency (it usually isn't), kids need to learn patience and allow an interaction to continue.

5. Don't text at the table. Seemingly a no-brainer, I am constantly astounded by how much kids (and adults) check their phones during meals. I'm guilty, but trying not to do it!

6. Don't text during conversations. Nothing relays the message that you've got better things to do than checking your phone during a conversation.

7. Honor Privacy You don't have to read someone's diary to invade her privacy. In a world of reality TV and 24/7 social media, it's challenging to maintain a sense of privacy. 

  • Knock on the door before entering a room.

  • Do not eavesdrop on others' conversations.

  • Don't spread gossip and rumors.

  • Don't share and forward the personal information (or photos) of others.

  • Do put an end to forwards that land in your lap. It stops here.

8. Learn to say "excuse me." Always appropriate when interrupting a situation or when releasing "gas."

9. Have integrity  "Honesty and integrity are at the very foundation of one's character," says Sena. Our children must learn how powerful their words are, and how using them wisely is at the core of good manners.

  • Tell the truth. "It's not always easier to tell the truth, but it's always better in the long run," says Nickell. "Our children should know that lying won't get them anywhere, and that honesty really is the best policy."

  • Stick to your word. "Teach the importance of following through and living by your word," says Nickell. "It's an essential part of life, and it's a lesson children can begin to learn at a young age." If you say you're going to do something, stick to it.

10.Respect your elders "Speak to adults respectfully and look them in the eye when they are speaking to you," says Liz Taylor, an etiquette consultant in Minneapolis. Refer to them as Mr. or Mrs. unless they tell you otherwise. (If you don't know their names, refer to them as sir or ma'am.) Politely offer them your seat or let them go before you (through a door, in a buffet line, or anywhere).

11. Lose gracefully. If you do your best, then it doesn't matter whether you win or lose. We can't win every game, so when you lose, be sure to thank your opponent, shake hands and say, "Well done!" or "Good job." No sore losers, please.Unknown-8

  • Maintain a positive attitude. Sports and games should emphasize building each other up, taking turns, playing as a team, working hard and striving to improve. By focusing on these positives, there will be fewer bad manners when there is a loss.

12. Acknowledge friends and acquaintances. A simple nod or smile is all it takes, versus ignoring them completely.

13. Eat your food,with mouth closed, just another reminder!

“Where ya from?” Family outing go to NYC Tenement Museum then walk to the original Benito One in the heart of Little Italy

What? Kids drink beer, women threw bricks in butchers window when they raised the prices. Yes learn all about the history of the tenements and how it all started. We loved it, it was our second visit and the impact it made on the kids and myself is a great experience. I think its a eye opener when your actually sitting in the space where it all happened. This is something you can read about but going through the process makes it real and has the impact on you and your kids. http://www.tenement.org/tours.php

Grown-up Mean Girls: Dealing with Mom Bullies By Allison Ford

 

Grown-up Mean Girls: Dealing with Mom Bullies 

Anyone who says that childishness is solely the province of children has obviously never spent much time in modern parenting circles. It’s a sad fact of life that some people never grow out of being bullies—they just get older, meaner, and richer (although no less likely to steal your lunch money).

Being a mom these days is hard; there’s a pressure to be perfect that many previous generations of parents simply never felt. Modern moms are expected to nurture their brilliant little organic humanitarians with esoteric taste in music, and in the quest for modern parenting’s brass ring—a scholarship to Yale or a MacArthur genius grant—many moms end up so desperate to prove what a great job they’re doing that they end up making other moms feel like they’re failing.

 

Whether it’s the president of the PTA, a member of your playgroup, or even the parent of the kids next door, everyone knows women (and men) who make a point of belittling and berating other parents. Gone are the days when silly disagreements could be fought out at the bike rack after school, but there are still ways to deal with sanctimonious mothers who think they always know best.

 

The Green Meanie

This mom purées her own baby food from organic veggies she grows herself. She uses cloth diapers, dye-free bamboo fabric, cruelty-free lotions, and PBA-free plasticware, and she may even eschew vaccines in order to prevent her precious angel from ever coming into contact with a single chemical. All that effort may make her feel superior to the terrible monsters who let their children play with traditional toys instead of lead-free wooden blocks, but don’t forget that organic living is just a lifestyle choice, not a surefire path to healthier, happier, or smarter kids. So just relax about buying your baby shampoo at Wal-Mart instead of Whole Foods. When confronted by a mom who can’t fathom that not everyone has time to farm her own mangoes for hand-churned sorbet, ask her whether the landfill space saved by using cloth diapers really mitigates the carbon footprint of the delivery drivers and industrial machines her diaper service uses.

 

The Braniac Maniac

“You haven’t signed up your infant for preschool-entrance test prep yet?” wonders this mother of an overachiever. “Howwill he get into a good college if you don’t start now?” The parents of any child who’s simply playing or having fun must surely be unfit, because for this mom it’s all about enrichment, whether it’s Baby Einstein videos, Omega-3-enriched brain foods, electrolyte-enhanced water, SAT prep, summer violin camp, or extracurricular activities that are sure to make Baby smarter and look great on a college application. Well, Baby Einstein videos have been proven a scam, as have most “enrichment” aids for young children. Test prep can be valuable for high schoolers looking to go to a competitive college, but up until then, the experiences of goofing off, playing, and just being a kid are invaluable. Plus, allowing a child to be a child can save parents money on therapy costs later.

 

The Food Freak

Her child brings his own snacks when he comes to play. She crusades against birthday cake at school, and not only does she never allow her child to indulge in sweets, soda, candy, white flour, or any other food foe du jour, she also tries to make sure that yours doesn’t, either. Childhood obesity is a serious concern, and her intentions to keep kids healthy and slim may be noble, but the next time she asks you how you could ever allow your child to enjoy a Popsicle on a hot summer day, simply say, “You know, it’s impossible to keep kids away from junk food forever. Rather than make it seem more appealing by restricting it, we prefer to teach our child moderation. Don’t you think that’s more realistic?”

 

The Lactivist

Not breastfeeding your child is akin to child abuse, according to this know-it-all mom, who constantly extols the supposed benefits of breastfeeding: Calmer tummies! Fewer colds! Higher IQs! Every mother and every child is different, and whether or not to breastfeed remains a decidedly personal choice. After all, it’s not as if you can pick out the bottle-fed kids on the playground by their sickly pallor or lack of vitality. There are perfectly legitimate medical and personal reasons not to breastfeed, so any time a lactivist starts in on a lecture about the evils of the bottle, simply say, “I don’t feel comfortable discussing my personal medical history with you, but my doctor and I have decided that breastfeeding is not for me. Formula is perfectly well equipped to meet an infant’s nutritional needs, and I also rather enjoy not having cracked or bleeding nipples.”

 

The PTA Pain

She’s the chair of every school committee, she’s the third-grade room mother, and she’s first in line to volunteer to sit in the dunk tank at the school carnival. Any school is lucky to have a mom who is so dedicated, but some of these busy-bee mothers have a way of making anyone who gives any less than they do feel like a delinquent parent. The next time you’re badgered into chaperoning a field trip or working a bake sale against your will, have a private conversation with the PTAPain, reminding her that while other parents are grateful for her dedication, not everyone’s schedule or budget allows for such an outlay of time and money. If the harassment doesn’t stop, don’t regret limiting the activities you participate in or declining future requests for volunteers. After all, your child’s education isn’t tied to the number of hours of unpaid labor you perform.

 

Unfortunately, there’s no suppressing the human instinct to tell others what to do and how they could do it better. Parenting is no different, and with every mom and dad struggling to get it right, decisions about childcare philosophies are rife with opportunities for disagreement and resentment. Why parenting inspires such heated battles is the subject of endless debate. Some people are likely insecure about their choices and looking for validation; other people are desperate to prove that their way of parenting is the “right way.” And inevitably, just like in every other area of life, some people are just jerks.

I would like to thank my guest blogger Allison Ford, you are right on MaMa! 🙂

Mom’s have been wearing all year at the GYM! Spring 2015 Hair Trends

Wow, you like? I just threw my hair up! 

New do's or just messy hair with a new twist, whatever it is I'm in. If you are not sure  what style will look best for your hair length and texture? Not to fear! Houte Living rounded up the hottest hair trends of spring 2015—from sleek pixie cuts, to beachy tousled waves—so you can welcome the warmer weather in style.

ROCK-N-ROLL PIXIE CUT
For a shorter hairstyle with a rocker twist, opt for all-over texture like Rita Ora and Jennifer Lawrence. Unlike traditional pixie cuts, messy, side-swept bangs keep this style looking feminine and oh-so-sexy. Feeling extra bold? Add a few face framing highlights or pump up the volume with a dollop of mousse or texturizing spray.

en lTEXTURED LOB
This spring, it’s all about easy-breezy natural-looking locks. And sorry ladies, but it may be time to retire your flatiron—super-straight long manes are a thing of the past. Sexy shoulder-length cuts, like those sported by Kim Kardashianand Olivia Palermo, are going to be all the rage this season.

HALF-UP TOP KNOT
Whether you’re running errands or hitting the town, some days you just want to pull your hair back off your face. And let’s face it, nothing looks hotter than when you look like your not trying. To re-create this style at home, grab a top section of hair and make a loose bun. Don’t worry about fly-aways or perfecting the perfect part—this hairstyle looks best messy.

Screen Shot 2015-02-09 at 1.58.58 PMhalf up bun

BEACH WAVES
Long, layered waves have been around for ages, and thankfully, they’re not going anywhere! To master this look at home, wrap small sections of hair around a large-barreled curling iron and spray with a spritz of hairspray. To keep your curls looking more beachy, be sure to only curl the hair up to your cheekbones and run your fingers through when finished to keep everything from looking too perfect.

SIDE FISHTAIL BRAID
Braids are one of the most versatile hairstyle in existence—and for good reason! They complement little black dresses or hoodie sweatshirts and work with hair of all textures. To create a boho look like Shailene Woodley and Sarah Hyland, make the braid a little looser by slightly pulling it apart after braiding. Let a few face-framing strands hang loose.

TOUSLED PONYTAIL
The difference between this ponytail and the one you wear to the gym—volume! For a chic finishing touch, wrap a strand of hair around the elastic.
