Get Checked. a program which offers free skincare checks at locations across the country. This is a great opportunity that we’ll definitely be taking them up on!

First stop, Columbus Circle where she schooled us on the importance of breakfast and handed out the biscuit that gets this Broadway star through her busy days to the public.
Then it was off to Central Park, where the Glee star channeled her character, Sue Sylvester, ambushing an exercise group, dropping down in planks and cracking jokes.
Next up Times Square…Stay tuned!
Over the weekend we hit the west coast for the Mom 2.0 Summit in Laguna Beach, California. It was all about moms talking life, work, and inspiration at the 5th annual conference where we got to chat with new mama Lisa Ling. She recently joined forces with Dove’s® Self-Esteem Project and was at the weekend-long event to launch their “Let’s Make Girls Unstoppable” campaign encouraging positive self-esteem amongst girls.
The host of Our America had some startling statistics to share with us….
We learned six in ten girls stop doing their favorite things because they feel bad about what they look like.
Dove’s® commitment to change this is what drew the mother of baby girl Jett to partner with the brand. “I think about my own daughter. And I’m going to try to do everything in my power to instill beauty and confidence in her,” she said.
That is exactly the same sentiment Dove sets out to share with 15 million girls by 2015 through self-esteem programming and tools. And it was awesome to see the campaign in action as girls from Girls Inc. confidently shared their favorite things about themselves. You go girls!

Yes, we’re celebrating as if it was St. Patty’s Day all over again. Why? Because we just heard about the Guinness Storehouse, #1 visitor attraction in all of Dublin where you can enjoy a pint of your favorite Irish brew all year long.
Learn how the famous beer is made, check out the Gravity Bar with a 360-degree view of Dublin or hit the Connoisseur Bar to get educated on the history. Best part…taste some of the famous beers and see how they pair with different foods. You can even get certified in pouring the perfect pint. What an awesome skill to take home with you.
The results are in! Sex improves as you get older, according to 57 percent polled in Allure Magazine’s first-ever national Aging Survey…1,000 men and 1,000 women…to find out how Americans really feel about physical signs of aging. But that’s not all we learned.
Turns out we’re pretty concerned about the effects aging has on appearance. In fact, out of those surveyed the ideal age they wished they could feel and look is 31!
What else? 42 percent of women would consider anti-aging injections or plastic surgery where only 18 percent of men would.
And when Allure asked people what they fear more about aging…dying or looking old…the largest response was that they fear neither. Looks like we get wiser as we age!
