18 Cool Things You Need To Click On Today


For the past two days, I've been at the Mom 2.0 conference in Orlando. (Not sure what that is? Here's my write-up of the 2016 Mom 2.0 and here's a little about the 2015 Mom 2.0.) I arrived early on Wednesday--a few hours before the official start of the conference--which meant I got to relax and listen to podcasts at the pool, while drinking an iced latte and eating a watermelon salad and sweet potato fries. In other words, HEAVEN.

Ever since, it's been pretty much nonstop seminars, speakers, and networking. Last night, however, I did get to take a fun excursion. As you may have seen on my Instagram Stories, I was able to take a fun VIP trip to Universal Studios Orlando with the Today Parenting Team, where we went on the new Jimmy Fallon ride, sampled food from the soon-to-open water park, Volcano Bay, and even had a private party at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! (I felt major guilt being there, though. My newly Harry-obsessed daughter is going to be so jealous!)

Today it's more seminars and networking--and then I head back to see my fam! I've been Facetiming with my kids twice a day, but I can't wait to get back and kiss their smooshy cheeks.

If you're celebrating Mother's Day on Sunday, I hope it includes some relaxation for you. :) But whatever you're doing this weekend, make it a great one! Here's a few fun things to check out while you're enjoying it.

• I've been loyal to this Dolce & Gabbana foundation for years (and it's amazing!). But I ran out two days before I left on my trip, so I had to look through my stash and find something new to try. So, now I've been using this Laura Mercier Silk Creme Moisturizing Photo Edition Foundation for the past few days and I absolutely love it. I've actually been startled by my reflection a few times (!), because it makes my skin look almost flawless. (And in real life, it is sooo not flawless...!) It also lasts really well--I haven't had to reapply at all during the day. Definitely a keeper!

• As I've mentioned before, Ann Taylor makes awesome, not-too-expensive tops that you can wear with jeans or dress up with a skirt or nicer pants. So when they have sales, I stock up. Right now they're offering 40 percent off with code FORYOU, so I want this sunny yellow one, this gorgeous blue one (so good with white jeans, right?), and this white one with delicate little dots.

• I met the popcorn company G.H. Cretors at Mom 2.0, and I am OBSESSED with this flavor. They put cheddar cheese popcorn and caramel corn into THE SAME BAG, so you get salty and sweet at once. Genius, right? And so yummy...

• If you have a little girl, you need to get her these Reebok sneakers! They are '80s fantasy shoes come to life and my daughter loves them just as much as I do!

• Loved this: 30 little things that mean a lot to kids. (Definitely going to be incorporating some of these!)

• What I want for Mother's Day.

• Funny, too-true cartoon.

• Mila Kunis surprises her parents with a home makeover, Ashton Kutcher helps, and the whole thing is just really adorable.

• I hate to admit it, but I've secretly done many of the 21 Things All Cat Owners Secretly Do.

• This is how Molly Ringwald really felt about her Pretty in Pink prom dress.

• I'm not typically the type of person to bawl at those my-dog-is-my-best-friend-and-saved-my-life videos, but well, this one got me.

• Lake Michigan is so clear right now--it seriously looks like a swimming pool in these photos--that there are tons of shipwrecks (!) that are now totally visible. So cool!

• Loved the surprise twist in this Humans of New York post.

• Mother's Day...when you've lost your mom.

And in case you missed it...

• I showed how to throw the world's coolest playdate.

• Isn't this really what we all want for Mother's Day? (Be honest!)

• My son turned four and I had feelings about it.

• When your kid wants two totally different birthday party themes, this is how you make it happen.
