Martha Stewart proves that no one can talk sh*t about bloggers – except other bloggers

Yesterday a Bloomberg News video with Martha Stewart made the rounds on Facebook and ignited a frenzy of indignation from the women’s blogging world.   In the interview, Martha disparages bloggers by saying they are “not experts,” that they don’t fully test recipes, that many just repost other people’s work.  Here’s a sample of the […]

Star Wars is for Girls

I saw Star Wars about 22 times the summer it came out when I was 5.  I wore my hair like Princess Leia before there was anything called Cosplay.   I’ve written about all of this before.  But last weekend I went with a young KidzVuz reporter (and her mom!) to New York Comic Con […]

KidzVuz in the News – on E! News, Fox NY and going viral!

What makes a video go viral? My husband described it as lightening in a bottle – and I think that’s true to a degree.  It is rare, and it has an element of impossibility.  This past week we watched our first honest to goodness viral video happen at KidzVuz. We’ve had videos get tens of […]

Tiger Eyes the Movie: Meeting Judy Blume, again, 30 years later

Judy Blume is easily the first author I remember LOVING.  I was probably around seven when I read my first Judy Blume book. Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, and quickly headed to Barnes and Noble for more.  I had to read EVERYTHING she wrote.  Like most girls of my generation (that would be X) […]

A Very Chocolatey Halloween with Jacques Torres

This week we were seriously delighted to go to Jacques Torres in Tribeca and create chocolate Halloween confections with Jacques and his amazing team.  If you follow me on twitter you already know that I documented my first Wicked Hot Chocolate of the season on the first chilly day in October. Officially cold enough out for […]

Once Princess Leia, Always Princess Leia

Wordless Wednesday was never this geeky.  I know.  When my husband saw this he said, “Truly there are no words.”  Actually, he said, ” That is the geekiest thing I’ve ever seen.”   I’m OK with that.  I spent all of kindergarten with my hair in two side buns.  I saw Star Wars 26 times in […]

What’s for Dinner? Hellmann’s Chicken Challenge

This is a guest post written by Shari Brooks of My Judy the Foodie.  Since I’m a vegetarian (or pescetarian really), and swamped with preparations for the KidzVuz redesign launch in two weeks,  I sent my fellow blogger and fab writer Shari Brooks to cover the Hellmann’s Chicken Challenge for Beccarama.  And I love Hellmann’s […]

Meeting Selena Gomez & Leighton Meester for Monte Carlo

The girls and fellow KidzVuz reporter Freckles Forever went to a preview screening and had their own little press conference with the stars of the new film Monte Carlo, Selena Gomez and Leighton Meester.  They got a few minutes with Cory Monteith too at the grown up press conference they attended first.  We’ll have the […]

A Crazy Week: Birthday Parties, Moms Night Out and Teri Hatcher Eats Carbs, Really!

I haven’t written in a while, but not because I’ve been lolling around eating bon bons.  (What are bon bons anyway?)  My daughters celebrated their 9th birthday last week.  I can’t begin to wrap my brain around how my daughters could possibly be nine years-old, but in the world of Girldom nine means a real […]
