Celebrating its first anniversary and heaps of success here in Bay Ridge Brooklyn, Cheesecake Diva is offering some new and exciting menu items and services we are thrilled to spread the word about!!
Disclaimer: This post was sponsored by Cheesecake Diva, but all thoughts and opinions are our own - completely honest and unbiased.
Before we get to the new stuff, we have to first touch on their (delicious!!) staple, and namesake - the cheesecakes!! Serving up a huge list of flavors in single serving ($4.25), 6" round (from $16), 10" round (from $38), mini pack of 12 ($12.95), and mini pack of 24 ($22.95) - stop by for a spontaneous sweet treat or order online for a birthday or office party (they can deliver!). They even cater events and offer wholesale to restaurants and hotels - call (718) 333-5087 for more info!!
And then there is the Egg Waffle Ice Cream which is huge enough to share, or those with the greatest of ambitions could tackle it solo! Not your average waffle cone, this puffed up egg waffle is a Hong Kong treat that is incredibly hard to find here in NYC. You choose vanilla or chocolate flavored egg waffle, add ice cream and your choice of toppings ($9)!
And now, to the new featured treats!! Cheesecake Diva is the FIRST in NYC to be offering a, wait for it, CHEESECAKE POPSICLE!!! It's basically a semi-frozen slice of cheesecake, on a stick, with your choice of toppings. And simply put, it's amazing!!!! It's worth ever cent of its $6.50 price tag (more for extra toppings). Thankfully this is not seasonal offering, it'll be here year-round!
They've also got Golden Honey Toast with Ice Cream, Bubble Tea, Infused Ice Tea, Diva Latte, Matcha...
For those seeking a taste of Japan in Bay Ridge, they've got a full line of Pocky Sticks and freshly made Takoyaki (octopus balls).
They are also now proudly serving Grumpy Coffee, which is Kosher certified, brewed in Brooklyn, and woman-owned!
As Cheesecake Diva enters their second year here in Bay Ridge, let's show them our support through our wallets and stomachs, shall we!? Located at 7309 3rd Ave, head on over to celebrate surviving the back to school hustle, a long work week, end of exams, birthdays, or just another day on this planet! Or give them a call to cater your next party, PTA meeting, baby shower, etc!

The way kids (and adults!) lose and break their glasses, we just can't afford to be paying top dollar for designer frames at a local boutique again and again, am I right?! Thank goodness for DiscountGlasses.com, who has hundreds of stylish prescription glasses (and sunglasses with or without prescription) for kids and adults, starting at just $39.95! They've generously included a $100 credit to their website for the winner of our $400 value Back to School Giveaway (enter to win here by 8/29/19). Check out this fun unboxing video by my 3 year old and myself, and then keep reading for more!
Their website features a virtual try-on app that is quick and easy to use, and allows you to see what you look like in most frames! If you create an account, it'll save your image so you can quickly use the try-on app every time you are shopping for new glasses or sunglasses. They also include very specific dimensions for each frame, including lens diameter, bridge width, and temple length, so if you go to a local shop and find the measurements that fit you best, it'll be quite easy to find the perfect glasses online moving forward. If you don't want to visit an eyewear store in person, no worries, discountglasses.com has a 365 free return period, so it's basically risk free! They don't take insurance but check with your health/eye insurance provider - you should be able to print off the detailed receipt and submit it for reimbursement.
With such fabulous prices and style options, you can "go crazy" with several designs and not feel a bit guilty! A sensible pair, a funky pair, one for work, one for nights out with the girls, see where I'm going? And for the kids, you can keep a backup pair at home, in the car, in the backpack, at grandma's house, etc.
We've already ordered several times from DiscountGlasses.com and have had great success with every frame so far! For myself, I got the Rampage R 195 plastic frame black glasses and the Prive Revaux The Hepburn sunglasses ($29.95, pictured above - bottom left). For my daughter Mia, we got her first prescription glasses, Miraflex New Baby 1 ($100 - pictured above - bottom left), which are great first glasses for toddlers as they're hinge-free, but she refused to wear them unfortunately). We got non-prescription sunglasses for all 3 kids as well Picklez Roxy Black with orange lenses ($34.95 - pictured above - top left) for Kenzo and Picklez Bruno ($34.95) and Picklez Penny ($39.95), both in hot pink, for Emi and Mia (pictured above - top right).
This time around, Mia and I got some new frames. Since we got thick plastic frames last time, I thought we'd try something new with thin and super lightweight metal frames! For myself, I got the Lunettos Harley in Matte Black/Tortoise, base price $39.95 and added the Transistions lens package for an additional $79.95, which includes UV-protective, scratch-resistant Transition polycarbonate prescription lenses, and I also added the $20 anti-reflective coating, for a total of $134.94.
Mia picked out the Picklez Daisy in Red/Turquoise for $39.95, which includes lightweight polycarbonate prescription lenses with UV-protective and scratch-resistant lenses. I'll admit I'm a wee bit jealous of her fun frames, the sides especially are just so adorable!! But the true question is... will she wear them!?!?!
So what do you think? Have you ever bought glasses online? Willing to give it a try next time? Don't forget, you can win $100 credit to DiscountGlasses.com in my $400 value jackpot Back to School Giveaway here (enter by 8/29/19, US residents 18+ only).
Sometimes accidental, sometimes part of a tantrum or burst of energy, there's no denying that little kids are prone to messes. But I'm here to share with you a very easy way to cut down on snack time messes, with the help of Munchie Mug, who sponsored this blog post and is part of our huge $400 value jackpot Back to School Giveaway (enter to win here!!).
Munchie Mug snack cups are proudly made in America with FDA food-grade compliant materials, and the plastic parts are #5 recyclable! They are BPA / Phthalate / PVC free and top rack dishwasher safe. They come in 16oz and 12oz (both with 4" diameter), with 2 types of tops. They're really durable too. We got our first 3 two years ago. 2 got lost along the way but 1 is still going strong, and we just added 3 new ones to our arsenal! I simply cannot sing their praises highly enough. We went through a half dozen or so type of snack cups and Munchie Mug is hands down THE BEST!!
The stay-fresh lid will seal it up for snacking later, but the main lid is where the magic is, folks. It's made of overlapping fabric (food grade polypropylene/spandex blend fabric) that makes it spill-proof and SHAKE-PROOF!! Be sure to watch our demo video (with a fun blind-folded game at the end) to see it in action - shake it as hard as you can, upside down, throw it across the room, this baby is NOT going to spill a single snack!! Do note, it's not mischief-proof - my littles eventually learned they can squeeze the fabric open to dump snacks out. But kids will be kids. At least there will be no ACCIDENTAL spills. The fabric also makes them super soft and great for sensitive little hands. Got eczema or sensory issues? No problem!!
The tops come in a rainbow of colors to choose from, and the base cups come in a couple of cute designs, including ABC, 123, and clear, and are recommended for ages 10 months and up. The lids also feature a little cutout that make them easy for little hands to hold onto, easy for a caregiver to carry several at a time (i can hang onto 3+ per hand!), and you can thread a sippy cup leash to attach it securely to a stroller or car seat.
Still on the fence about signing your city kids up for summer camp, or wondering if your progeny might be ready for sleep-away camp? Then you're in luck, because today's post is sponsored by Trail Blazers, an overnight camp located on 1,000 beautifully forested acres in Montague, NJ - just 2 hours from NYC with busing available from Brooklyn! One of the nation's oldest summer camps (open since 1887 - now in its 133'rd season!!) and accredited by the American Camp Association, sessions have already commenced, but it's not too late! Keep reading for more info and sign up ASAP!
Trail Blazers has an adventure for every camper - grades K - 12, of every background and all levels of experience. We're talking Farmstead, Rock Climbing, Canoeing, and Biking programs, and a Leaders-In-Training program for teens.
With 14 campsites and a private 55 acre lake, Trail Blazers offers campers a unique and immersive experience in nature. We're talking canvas teepees and tents (with beds), non-flushing latrines (running water & hot showers available), and a completely electronics-free zone (yep - no phones, internet, or video games!!).
Campers live in a smallcamp group, with just 7-9 campers and group leaders who come from all over the world. This allows each group to schedule days tailored to their to their individual interests. They believe children learn best through experience, so your child will learn hands-on skills, how to take charge, and how to share their skills and talents with others. While having the summer of their lives, campers will learn how to develop care and respect for themselves, their friends, our community, and the environment.
In order to make summer camp available to all children interested in Trail Blazers, they offer a 5-level tier system based on family income. Additional scholarship funding is available for some programs to families for whom Tier 1 (lowest) pricing is still out of reach.
Sounds amazing, right!? Don't miss the chance for your child to have an amazing, adventurous summer with Trail Blazers! Head on over to their website NOW for more information or to schedule a tour! Besides their overnight camp in NJ, they also have a Brooklyn Day Camp (with drop-off locations in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Crown Heights, and Park Slope) for campers entering Pre-K through 10 years of age, from $55 - $125 per day.

Summer is coming (or already here!) and your kids are in need of some quality, comfortable, and adorable water-safe summer shoes!! We've been huge fans of pediped for many years now, and are thrilled to be working with them on yet another review and giveaway! Keep reading and enter to win a pair of shoes and a purse strap at the bottom of this post!
FLEX® RIVER MARY JANE SANDALS:
How excited are my girls about their new pediped summer shoes!! They're happy because they're super cute, comfy, great for the splash pad and the playground, and easy for them to put on by themselves, and mama's happy because they're water-safe, machine-washable, very flexible, vegan, and have a quick-dry EVA footbed!
Available in sizes 20 - 36 (US 5 - 4.5Y), in colors purple, pink, and navy, you can grab a pair for $42.50 - $50 on pediped.com or Amazon (affiliate link).
FLEX® RENEGADE WATER-SAFE SNEAKERS:
My son already had a pair of hand-me-down fisherman style sandals, so I searched for another style of water-safe shoes and found the awesome Renegade design by pediped! Featuring clarino and mesh upper, breathable neoprene liner, and a quick-dry EVA foot bed - these are a great way to let your child play and run in the water, but keep their feet safe (completely protected from the sun, too - less sunblock FTW)! My 6 year old hasn't learned to tie laces yet, so he's happy these have stretchy faux laces and an easy velcro strap! And I'm happy that they're machine washable, because shoes worn frequently in summer without socks can get a bit funky, and I right?
Available in sizes 22 - 31 (US 6 - 13.5) in navy/lime, pink, and purple you can buy these for $57 on pediped.com or Amazon (affiliate link).
Pediped has a few other great water-safe children's summer shoes, including the Flex design we got and reviewed last year, as well as crib shoes, sneakers, dress shoes, boots, and more (and to really go back in time, check out our old reviews of the Norm loafers, Orion Sneakers, and Natasha Dress Shoes and Max Sneakers)! Head to their website to shop all of their options!
But wait, pediped is more than just award winning shoes that promote healthy foot development!! They've also got some fun accessories, including pedipals shoe charms, pedipets pet collars and leashes (with designs that match some of their shoes!), and purse straps!
The pediped purse straps will attach to many kinds of purses (with a metal clasp on each end of the leather 40" lacquer coated strap), and comes in two designs - silver and white floral. It's long and intended for a mom to use and coordinate with her toddler's shoes (Flex® Jake White Floral, Originals® Jake White Floral, Flex® Barbara White Floral, or Originals® Louisa White Floral), so it was a bit too long for my 3 year olds to use but was fine for my 6 year old (see above). You could get creative and attach it to other things as well such as a teddy bare, water bottle, you name it!
OK, the moment you've all been waiting for!! Enter in the rafflecopter app below for your chance to win ONE PAIR of "adventure" water-safe shoes (you chose style, size, and gender) and ONE PURSE STRAP!! Open to US residents age 18 or over, the giveaway will end at 11:59PM EST on Thursday, June 13. The more actions you take in the app, the more chances to win you will accrue! Some options include daily points!
With NYC banning styrofoam and plastic bags, and the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change's recent special report, the time is now to step up and do our part to, for lack of a better phrase, reduce - reuse - recycle. I'm not going to pretend to be an expert on the topic, and I'll admit to often making choices based more on convenience and budget than sustainability and carbon footprint. But I need to do better, and thankfully such is the growing mindset out there!
There are simple choices we can all make, that are healthier for us and the planet, and sometimes even for our wallets! And the impact, when we all make these choices, can really add up! Reducing our usage of plastics and single-use items is one of those choices we all need to be focusing on, and I'm happy to share with you why and how silicone can help you do this!
Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Hilary Abbot Communications on behalf of GoSili, but all thoughts and opinions are my own and unbiased. This post also contains affiliate links - you won't pay more but this blog will earn a small commission from any sales made.
According to GoSili, silicone is:
Ditch the Disposables!!
All those single-use snack bags, beverage containers, straws, and lunch and grocery bags add up to a LOT of waste. Some of them may end up being recycled, but most end up in a landfill or even worse, in the ocean. Did you know there are amazing reusable products out there for just about everything? Glass, stainless steel, bamboo, and silicone are just a few of the more eco-friendly sustainable materials to choose from, and below are a few of our favorite silicone products that can replace common plastics and disposables you're used to using.
Plastic straws - why oh why are these still being distributed!? According to GoSili, 500 million plastic straws are thrown away every day in the US!! No more, we say!! But that doesn't mean you have to give up straws completely! These Reusable Silicone Straws by GoSili come in pretty colors, are easy to use and clean, and they fold up nicely, too! Get 1 in a travel case for $2.50 - 2.99 or a 6-pack for $6.95 on Amazon (affiliate link). While you're at it, grab some silicone straw tops (affiliate link) to make any glass, mug, or cup spill proof!
Silicone Coffee Cups / Travel Mugs
Sure, walking into the coffee shop and grabbing a to-go cup is easy. Too easy. According to GoSili, 100 billion disposable cups go to land fills each year. Stop the insanity! Bring your own cup, and do it in style! These Reusable 16oz Silicone Coffee Cups / Travel Mugs by GoSili are brilliant - the entire cup and lid are made of silicone, and include an internal stainless steel ring so they won't collapse under your grasp! Amazing, right!? Grab them for $14.95 on Amazon (affiliate link), they're also available in 8oz! Do note they're not spill proof as there is no plug for the little sippy hole. Hey GoSili, there's your next product to work on - the coffee cup plug!
Silicone Sippy Cups for Kids
Want to have a laugh at your toddlers, big kids, or even your spouse trying to figure out how to drink from a cup? Get them a 12oz Silicone OH! Cup "Drink From Anywhere" Cup by GoSili! At first glance, you can't figure out how to take a sip - there are no holes! But there are actually teeny slits across the entire top ring of the lid (see my image below), hence the "drink from anywhere" part of its name! So, when you tip it back and suck, out comes your drink! But when you flip it over, no spills! It's amazing!! Once you explain it to your kids, they'll pick it up no problem, but first be sure to get their no-explanation first attempt on video!
Some of these products might be tough to find at local retailers, but you can grab them on Amazon here (affiliate links):
So, what do you think!? Are you already using some of these silicone products? Have others you love? Any tips for reducing, reusing, recycling!? Shopping at zero waste bulk stores yet? Leave a comment below!!
Girl moms and mini fashionistas, this one is for you!! We recently did a review of kidpik basics (budget-friendly and super cute a la carte girls' clothing), and now we're back with a (sponsored) unboxing and review of kidpik subscription box! Keep reading and don't miss our fun unboxing and fashion show video embedded at the bottom of the post!!!
There is no stylist fee, no subscription fee, no shipping or return fee. Basically, there's no risk when ordering your kidpik subscription box!!! You take the stylist quiz (see some of the questions in the carousel below), select the sizes and frequency to receive your box (every 4, 6, or 12 weeks) and bam, your girl's box is on the way!
Available for girls ages 3-12 years (sizes 4-16), each box includes 7 items (clothing, accessories, and shoes, or you can select not to include shoes), with an average cost of $13.50 per item or $95 per box. You only pay for the items you don't send back within a week, but if you keep ALL the items, you get a 30% off "keep all" discount! And because each box is personally stylized for your girl's preferences, it's quite likely you'll want to keep them all! We sure did! But just in case, they include a pre-paid return envelope, to make returns super easy.
One thing I find very unique about this particular subscription box is that it's not a mish mosh of brands. Every item is kidpik brand - high quality, super cute, and not available in stores! Knowing every item was hand picked by a stylist for your daughter feels pretty special, too! Fast forward a few years, I can totally see my girls signing up, taking the stylist quiz, and handling all of this for themselves (with minimal supervision)! Such a fun system for your lil' fashionistas - no driver's license necessary! HA!
So what are you waiting for?! Go ahead and sign up for your no risk box of girl's clothing here!! And get 40% off your whole box + free shipping with code USJF40, valid 5/31/19 thru 6/13/19

Mother's Day is coming up and we all have different feelings about this day. For many, it's a day to reflect on all that the mother does for the family. To spoil her, or at least to take a moment to say "Thank you and I love you!" But we have to remember for some, it's not all rainbows and butterflies. Some women are struggling to become mothers, some are grieving the loss of our own mothers, some have a tense relationship with their mother / mother-in law / baby mama or even their own children! No matter the case, we can all agree that without mothers, none of us would be here. So, commemorate the day how you best you choose, and if that means gifting yourself or a mother with something lovely, unique, and treasurable, then this is the post for you! I bring you my unique Mother's Day Gift Guide!
I have been wanting this myself for ages, and just hadn't made the splurge or hinted at it to my partner in crime, oops! But I got a beautiful personalized piece of mothers' jewelry thanks to oNecklace who provided me with this gorgeous Three Tone Ring Engraved Mother Necklace, currently 40% off, selling for just $47.95!! Beyond having your children's names engraved (smallest ring is 24K gold plated, next is rose gold, and largest ring is 925 sterling silver), you can also customize the clasp (lobster or spring-ring clasps) and chain length (with 14 - 22" available). oNecklace has TONS of other designs available - mother jewelry, and non-mother necklaces, bracelets, rings, earrings, for kids and adults. oNecklace has been around since 2012 and has been featured in British Vogue and on Pretty Little Liars and The Talk, they offer free shipping and have a 90-day return policy, so what do you have to lose!? Check 'em out!
Mugs, Tumblers, & Glasses
Whether she's a wine lover, coffee addict, tea enthusiast, fitness freak, or just your average Jane struggling to stay hydrated, you can't go wrong with a fun or stylish beverage container. Pick out one with a silly catch phrase, an inspirational quote, or even some photos of your kids - the sky's the limit! I'm loving the motherhood line of glasses by Pearhead, featuring wine glasses (affiliate link) and ceramic coffee mugs (affiliate link).
Nothing says love like a box of goodies delivered right to their doorstep! Thankfully there are a bazillion subscription boxes out there to choose from!! Got a fitness or yoga lover? Check out my review (and $10 off coupon) for Yoga Club!! For regular clothing (men, women, and kids) try Stitch Fix (affiliate link).
Sometimes the most thoughtful gifts don't come in packages with pretty bows on top. What about booking her a day at the spa, or that cut and color she's had on the back burner for months (or years) because she just hasn't had the child-free time to "pamper" herself on such a "luxury"!? Heck, you can even book a sitter for her to have some free time - check out Chime by Sitter City, you'll even get $25 off your first booking with my affiliate link!
When's the last time your family had a professional photoshoot? Book one to commemorate Mother's Day this year, or every year! Or, just for the mama, how about a Boudoir Shoot? It's certainly not for everyone, but would be an experience she'll never forget (and probably some photos she and her partner will appreciate having decades down the road!). If you don't know of a great local photographer, hey, there's an app for that, with plenty of "on-demand" photography booking options these days. With Shoott in NYC, for example, you book on demand (or ahead) and get a free on location 30 minute photo shoot and only pay for the photos you keep (each is $15 or less)!! Some others include PhotoSesh, Snappr, and Snapped.
Support your mama friends by shopping through them!! Here are a few great Mother's Day gift ideas from my mom friends:
If all else fails and you're still at a complete loss for the perfect Mother's Day Gift, check out Amazon's exhaustive list of Mother's Day Gifts (affiliate list), with tons of categories and options!!

This post was sponsored by Liberty Science Center through a Momtrends blogger campaign, however all thoughts and opinions are my own (cuz... I'm no sell out!!)!
Little by little we're making our way through my list of the best day trips & weekend getaways from NYC, as well as the best kid-friendly spots within the 5 boroughs, and this past Saturday brought us to a new one which is now one of my all-time favorites: Liberty Science Center!! In a nutshell, the entire facility and all of the exhibitions were immaculate, there were endless hands-on activities for everyone from toddlers through adults, and it's relatively easily accessible for NYC dwellers despite it being "all the way over" in New Jersey LOL!! Watch my video highlights here and keep reading below for more details about the center in general as well as some brand new exhibits!
DOC MCSTUFFINS EXHIBIT:
Open from October 6, 2018 - January 27, 2019, this exhibit is based on Disney Jr.'s award winning children's TV series, Doc McStuffins. Children can feed newborns in the nursery, complete check-ups in the ER, care for animals in the Pet Vet, tune-up toys, and more! My kids loved every nook and cranny of this exhibit, and my girls were specially fascinated with the pretend hand washing stations, haha!!
SHERLOCK HOLMES EXHIBIT:
Walking through this interactive adventure, you could really find yourself carried away to another time and place. Each center is meticulously decorated with forensic clues to read and examine - see first hand how blood splatter analysis works, how foot prints differ going forward and backward, and much more!! Do note that this is a premium exhibit, meaning it's not included in general admission. You can pay an extra $6 or so to go the planetarium OR a premium exhibit, or about $10 extra to do both. Don't expect to follow along and actually solve the crime if you have little ankle biters in tow like we did (though it's still enjoyable to walk through and take it all in), but if you have older kids or adults only, spend an hour in here and have an exciting crime-solving adventure!
I could not believe my eyes when walking into this room, and seeing on their website that it's the "Biggest Planetarium in the Western Hemisphere", yep, I believe it!! It's massive!!!!! When sitting down, it's overwhelming and absolutely breathtaking!! When seated you pretty much had a 180 degree view from left to right, and the screen and images even wrap up and behind you a bit. We saw the "One World, One Sky: Big Bird's Adventure" Sesame Street Show and it was really adorable - we learned some of the basic constellations and even traveled to China and the Moon!! Currently playing, they also have "Black Holes" and "Wonders of the Night Sky". It's not included in the standard admission fee, it's an add-on just like the "premium" Sherlock Holmes exhibit mentioned above.
OTHER NOTABLE ACTIVITIES & EXHIBITS:
Liberty Science Center is just a 40 minute drive from Bay Ridge Brooklyn (about 1 hour 15 minutes by bus / Path / NJ Light Rail), so totally doable if you plan to spend half a day there or so - great for a cold or rainy Saturday or Sunday!! They're open 9am - 4pm on Tuesdays - Fridays and 9am - 5:30pm on weekends (closed Mondays). Parking is $7. Admission is $23.75 per adult ($19.75 for ages 2 - 12), plus $6 for a combo pass (1 planetarium show OR 1 premium exhibit) or plus $10 for a Premium Pass (1 planetarium show AND 1 premium exhibit).
But here's where you can get a great deal... the FAMILY MEMBERSHIP!!! At just $175, basically the same price as 2 visits with a family of 4! It includes unlimited admission for 2 adults and 4 kids, 6 single-use passes (which can be exchanged for theater show tickets), member-only events (including member mornings and nights), and discounted theater/planetarium shows, premium exhibits, science camp, gift shop & cafe! Membership also grants you free admission to over 340 science & technology centers around the world as part of the ASTC Travel Passport Program (they must be at least 90 miles from your residence or science center where you are a member).
Thanks again to Momtrends and Liberty Science Center for hosting all of us bloggers and our families - we had a blast (above pix from our private party that included breakfast, learning about Bernoulli's Principle of Flight via 9 rolls of toilet paper, and making ice cream with liquid nitrogen - SO FUN!!)
