Mini Me: Matching Swimwear for Father and Son

Memorial Day marks the official start of beach season and we’ve found a new favorite in father/son swimwear from LeClub.  If you’re typically not a fan of the matchy-matchy look – you’ll be converted.  LeClub gets twinning right.

Inspired by the vibrant Miami beach scene, colorful LeClub offers a variety of options for men and boys alike.  From European styles to board shorts – this high-end active swim line includes bright solids and bold contemporary patterns to mix and match or coordinate.

With father’s day coming up, we can’t help but love the gift potential in outfitting dad and a family of boys in coordinating trunks.  We also fully understand the little boy adoration that comes with looking just like daddy.

Find LeClub online, in specialty stores internationally and at high-end resorts including The Four Seasons, Ritz Carlton, Mandarin Oriental, and more.  Look out for their new collection – soon to be released at the Miami Swim Show this July.


Grocery Delivery in NYC with Peapod

I was a new mom, with a sleeping infant in carriage, trying to navigate an exceptionally narrow aisle of our local upper east side supermarket when grocery shopping angst first set in.  Blocking aisles, stroller wheels knocking items off shelves, food tucked into the hood of my stroller – because forget carrying a basket.  The list goes on and on and on.

Since that time, hundreds of text messages between my husband and I revolve around grocery items. I don’t think that you’ll find one New York parent who describes the grocery shopping process as easy.  So when Peapod, an online grocery retailer suggested I give their service a go, I was all in.

Our recent Peapod delivery was one of the highlights of my week. Determined to stock-up on household items, my order has my family’s shopping needs set for quite some time.
