You’re Invited | Caumsett Rocks, The Caumsett Foundation’s 17th Annual Benefit

caumsett state park
One of my favorite things to do out here in suburbia is run at Caumsett State Park. We often take the kids on weekends but I also steal away during the week for some alone time. If you follow me on Insta, you know it’s where I go to get up close and personal with local wildlife.

When I was asked to join this year’s benefit committee for the park’s annual fundraiser, I jumped at the chance help. Our efforts are coming to fruition this weekend at Caumsett Rocks, The Caumsett Foundation’s 17th Annual Benefit:

Shopbop + Born Free Africa

Born Free Africa

Mother’s Day was a beautiful occasion not only to celebrate being mom and reflect on how grateful I am for this role and the family we’ve built but to honor all moms for their sacrifice and unconditional love. I had a lovely dinner with my parents and brother after a carnival at Pier 45 with Leo and the kids for the launch of the Shopbop + Born Free Collection of women’s and children’s clothing & accessories, a collaboration between Shopbop, Vogue, and 22 top designers to benefit Born Free’s goal to end mother-to-child HIV transmission at birth.

Beauty Buzz | Babo Botanicals Spring Launch at buybuy BABY Chelsea #BaboLove

Babo-Botanicals-Spring-Launch-BuyBuybaby

I was already a huge Babo fan but getting to spend the afternoon with founder Kate Solomon for the Babo Botanicals Spring Launch at buybuy BABY in Chelsea sealed the deal! You guys, she is so passionate and knowledgeable about natural skin care and hair care. Not the misleading “derived from something natural at some point” that’s negligently slapped all over baby products but certified-organic, made in the U.S., products you can trust.

7 Lesser-Known Safety Tips for Kids

Close to one million children die of preventable injuries each year throughout the world. In the U.S., unintentional injuries are the number one cause of death to children.

No one wants to read grim statistics and dwell on “what ifs” but education and safer environments make an enormous difference in reducing child injury deaths.

This past Saturday, we attended the second annual Safe Kids Day at Highline Stages to help raise awareness about preventable injuries. Presented by Safe Kids Worldwide, the carnival-themed event featured interactive learning stations designed to reinforce safety tips for kids and VIP guest appearances from Nigel Barker, Alysia Reiner, Genevieve Gorder, and more.

My kids loved every minute of it and consequently, so did I.

Most important of course, are the safety messages. Sure, we’ve been drilled in the basics but you may be surprised to learn some of these lesser-known safety tips for kids:
