Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later

Finally! Something to look forward to, with nostalgia!

It's no secret that I love the Wet Hot American Summer franchise. It shines a light into the deep, dark crevices of our collective consciousness, adding more jokes and a better soundtrack. I'm actually typing this from my grandparents' house in New Jersey, so I am in full-on '80s summer camp mode. Can't wait! I'm hoping the Rudd-lessness of this teaser is not a sign that Ant Man is too cool for summer camp these days.)

Stay Cool. See U next summer!

(New) Mother's Day Giveaway from Belli Skincare and Friends

is partnering with some fabulous friends to give one new mom the Mother's Day gift package she *really* wants! Tomorrow – May 3rd, you can get 20% off online purchases using code BLIMOM20 and enter to win a prize valued at more than $700 featuring items from Belli and their partners Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine, Belabumbum, Chewbeads, Goumi, MobyWrap, Guava Family, and Ovia.

I'm well past my babymaking phase (phew!) but I appreciated a lot of these brands when I was deep in the throes of new mommyhood. In fact, I remember being positively wowed by Belli's Stretchmark Minimizing Cream after having Jasper. And I love Belabumbum's soft, sexy loungewear and undies, which thankfully go beyond nursing bras. I could LIVE in their Copacabana collection,  if anyone feels the need to get me bras and boyshorts in every color combination…

How to Control Hillary in 2016

If you subscribe to the notion that politicians are playing in a house of cards, then the current American election cycle could perhaps best be described as a few cards short of a full deck. Luckily, there is one person who knows when to hold 'em and know when to fold 'em. Yes, folks, that person is Hillary Rodham Clinton.

With over forty years on the frontlines of advocacy for women, families, and the United States in general, the former First Lady and Secretary of State has more political experience and finesse than anyone can reasonably shake a stick at. Detractors say she's untrustworthy and unlikeable but her supporters mandate she is the smartest and most genuinely empathetic person in any given room. Who should you believe?

With the Hillary Rodham Clinton Presidential Playset, you get to make your own decisions based on your personal beliefs, values, and present needs. Just like all Americans should be able to!
Change your pantsuit to fit your mood, confer with Bill or the Supreme(Court Justice)s, engage in meaningful debate with a host of Republican adversaries, share knowing looks with Oprah, and talk shop with ghosts from the White House past.

There's even a Primary bonus expansion pack to download, featuring Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders paper dolls. Imagine the fun you'll have watching debates and commentary with all the players literally in the palm of your hand!
