Mom Central received ECCO shoes to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own. It’s been the winter of the polar vortex, and I’ve never been more excited for Spring. While I’m a fan of seasons (and enjoy the various fashion options each inspire) I don’t think I’m alone in wishing spring a fond welcome after a winter of covering up in many layers of scarves, warm boots, down jackets, and the works. Over the weekend, I was very excited to switch out my sheepskin boots with these beautiful ECCO Pretoria Laser Cut Pumps. As with all other ECCO styles I’ve tried, these shoes proved to be strikingly unique and comfortable. The pumps made their “Spring Forward” debut as I met friends for brunch, then caught an off-Broadway play, and rounded out the day with a wine and cheese pairing – all the while feeling comfortable as ever in my new heels. My friends loved these shoes, and were quite taken by the laser cut design as well as the sturdy pump heel.

Wink Brow Bar
Mom Central was invited to receive complimentary beauty services at Wink Brow Bar. All opinions are our own. Let’s face it – we all get busy! Fall is here, which means back to school. The holidays arriving faster than we know it. And our weekends just fill up with plans. We can’t use this busy season as an excuse to neglect ourselves. Many women don’t think to treat themselves to services like tending their eyebrows or getting a facial because they “don't have the time.” We learned from our visit at Wink Brow Bar in New York City that you don’t need a lot of time to receive treatments that have long-lasting benefits – and save you time in the long run by leaving our care in the hands of highly-skilled and knowledgeable professionals! Mom Central’s Kelly Palmisano and Lorianne Lacey experienced a few hours of restorative beauty after work. Not only did they have a lot of fun, but their treatments really paid off as they felt their brows and skin have never looked or felt better!
Join us at the Zappos Recharge Event During Fashion Week!
Mom Central received samples from Zappos to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own. One of the silver linings in summer bidding us farewell for me has always been my excitement for Fall fashion. Bring on the boots, bold colors, and layering galore! Living in New York, early Fall gets an extra burst of fashion excitement with the arrival of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. I love seeing the recaps of the shows – and learning about what my favorite fashion brands are doing to celebrate this surge of style taking over what is already such a stylish city! This year, Zappos will be hosting the Zappos Recharge Event right across the street from all of the action!
JVC HD Everio Camcorder
Mom Central received a complimentary JVC HD Everio Camcorder in order to write this review. All of the opinions expressed are our own. Does it seem like everyone’s got a smartphone nowadays? They’re super-handy for so many things, not least of all capturing spur-of-the-moment photos and videos! When it comes to capturing important life events like weddings, graduations, birthday parties, anniversary parties, and family vacations (think: wet, sandy, far away, crowded and/or noisy!), my smartphone is just not an option for me. Fumbling with my delicate, breakable iPhone is not what I want to be doing when among a bustling parade crowd or on a misty, sandy beach, capturing the moment my girlfriend surfs her first big wave!  As it is, I have found myself at the Genius Bar in the Mac Store and facing a complete phone replacement more times than I care to admit, and that’s just from everyday use!
Clothesline Sandals from AEROSOLES
Mom Central received AEROSOLES shoes to facilitate our review. All opinions are our own. Some of our favorite summer colors were navy and white – and we found the perfect sandals to complement these seasonal looks (and our favorite outfits) from AEROSOLES! The Clothesline Sandals are quite possibly the most comfortable summer shoe around. We wore these all over town, on vacation, and then some. The plush sole serves as an excellent cushion for your foot, with much more support than a standard flip flop. There’s no uncomfortable thong between the toes. The zipper closure and wrap-around heel strap makes it easy to wear these shoes on the go – there’s no stopping your stride! If you’re in the market for another summer heel, we recommend the Plush Around! We have these shoes in navy, which matches our favorite summer outfits.
Peanut Butter and Banana Sushi – A Tasty Recipe from Envirokidz!
Mom Central received samples of Envirokidz cereal to facilitate this post. All opinions are our own. Looking for a fun way to make lunchtime snacks more exciting for the kids – or even to entertain your adult friends? We love the creative recipes featured on Envirokidz’ website, and feel even better about eating these products knowing that they are healthy for us – and the planet. All of Envirokidz’ cereals are organic, vegan and packed with eight grams of whole grains. They are also low in fat, gluten- and wheat-free and trans-fat free. Kids will find them tasty (and us adults do, too!) and we can feel great about serving organic and non-GMO cereals that the whole family can enjoy. We also love that Nature’s Path donates 1% of sales to help the planet.
Viking's Stainless Steel 8" Fry Pan
Mom Central received a complimentary 8-inch fry pan from Viking in order to facilitate this review. All of the ideas expressed are our own. Stainless steel fry pans have always been the chef’s go-to for the most flavorful searing and browning of fish, meat and vegetables. The Viking brand, known for its high-end, professional stainless steel kitchen appliances, has expanded its product line to include a set of cookware ideal for the serious chef in each of us. The Viking 8-inch Fry Pan’s three-ply construction conducts heat evenly and quickly, delivering superb cooking results. The Viking performs well in high temperatures, on both regular and induction stovetops as well as in the oven.
