In this episode Lauren and Joan discuss kids and parenting. Lauren has two young sons and Joan has no children but is a great “aunt” and dog mom. She also would still like to have kids even though Lauren has warned her it’s exhausting when you are in your 40’s..
February is the best month to spread a little love around! Valentine’s Day is all about spreading joy to those around you. Hearts… and red! Who doesn’t love red? It’s not only about getting a gift for your significant other, you can also get one of a kind trinkets for your favorites – family members, kids, besties, or even your…
In this episode Lauren and Joan discuss the lengths they would go to in the pursuit of looking younger.
Every early January I get barraged with Valentine’s Day gift ideas from every angle. I don’t know about you but I tend to like the unusual and unexpected. Anyone can buy a box of chocolates and a dozen roses (I don’t mind either), but why not put a little more thought into your gift?
Between Joan and I we have had two marriages and one divorce. It’s not fun. Well divorce isn’t fun and often times marriage isn’t either. These are the life events real women go through. Divorce isn’t just for reality TV fodder anymore. Marriage is hard work! Here Joan and I discuss what we have experienced. Hopefully you can relate.
This week Joan and I discuss what dating was like when we were in our 20’s and what it is like today in our…well, NOT 20’s. We are older but are we wiser?
We are knee-deep into awards season. We just through the glamour of the Golden Globes and there’s much more to come before we even get to the grand-daddy of them all – snagging that gilded statue at the 89th Annual Academy Awards. So, we know the question you are really asking yourself right now is: How can I put together a lavish party so my friends and I can sit around, get a little tipsy and judge the actors mercilessly in the comfort of my own home? For a surprisingly detailed question, I magically have the answer for that!
Lauren Dimet Waters of FountainOf30.com and life-long friend Joan Rice discuss how unlike reality TV, real friends don’t pick fights with each other to create drama for the sake of creating drama. We have enough drama just getting through each day in one piece. In fact, we both weed out those people who bring the drama and pick fights. Real women do not seek out confrontation like you see on the Real Housewives of Hell. Right? Here we discuss this topic.
I’m sure I’m not the only “woman” sick and tired of listening to girls talk. I remember there being some reality show a couple of years ago called “Girls Talk” (who knows if it’s still on?) and it got me thinking, what the hell do they (millennials) know about life? Once you have four decades under your belt you a lot more wise to life. So one of my oldest friends (one who has known me four decades) and I discuss what life is really like.
Some of us still send cards and invites right? I’m talking about real, sent in the mail invites and cards. Well I really don’t for events I’m hosting that much anymore. Emailing is so much easier and thankfully more accepted too. However, most online cards and invite sites don’t offer much in the way of reflecting my personal style. I want my email invitations to look and feel like the ones I would send in the mail…beautiful.
Finally! It seems like this has been the never ending year but alas, 2016 is almost over. What better way to shake off the old baggage and change it up for 2017 than to completely change your outlook?
Is your workplace doing one of those Secret Santa exchanges (it’s so hard to shop for those, unless you regift a candle like on SNL) or are you looking for stocking stuffers…like me? I found some items that work for either of both. Well the makeup set might be too large for a stocking, but it does make a perfect solution for a female coworker. Especially if you have a budget of under $20. Take a look at some of these awesome finds.
I feel you. Nobody wants to be a Grinch but you don’t have unlimited funds for holiday gifts for ALL of your friends and family either. No worries! I found some great gifts that all come in under $25. Welcome to Presentville…
Your BBF should be the easiest to shop for, but just in case you have run out of ideas, I’m here to help. Some of these would work for sisters and mothers as well.
I know we all wish we had unlimited funds to spend on friends and loved ones, but that’s not realistic. What is realistic are these amazing gift ideas I found that all come in under $50. Granted most (OK all) are for women, but let’s face it, women are more fun to shop for. Besides, the holidays mean beauty gift sets and we LOVE to give and receive them! Take full advantage of holiday gift sets since they are usually a brand’s best deals of the year.
