To Philly With Love

On a recent trip to Philadelphia, our editor saw a side of Philly that she has never seen before. Filled with opportunities and attractions that will leave children and adults wanting more, we think Philly is now on our list of favorite cities. Most known for its cheesesteaks, the Liberty Bell and the Rocky stairs, you’ll be surprised when you realize how much more Philly has to offer. Do you have young children? Then you must check out the Please Touch Museum. It’s an amazing experience for adults and children, alike. Looking for a cool opportunity for older kids? There are...

Being a Stay at Home Mom: Is it the Right Choice?

Lately I have been having an internal struggle, and I just can’t seem to reach a conclusion yet.  I have been thinking about my full-time job, looking at this life I am trying to build as a writer and entrepreneur, and have been mulling over our monthly expenses – all in an attempt to figure out if I should continue working outside of the home or staying at home with my kids.  Any mom who’s ever had this struggle knows exactly what I am dealing with.  It is not easy. When I have this discussion I am very careful about...

Seven Years Later: My First Baltimore Women’s Classic

Seven years ago I completed the Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco, CA.  To date, it is still one of the most difficult things I have ever done and the only thing in my life that has been more physically painful has been the labor and delivery of my two children. But, despite the pain, it was such a great accomplishment and I am glad I did it.  As a matter of fact, I have a Tiffany’s necklace I received when I crossed the finish line and I still wear it regularly (I have it on right now).  Something...

11 Reasons Why We Can’t Wait for This Summer

This was such a beautiful weekend. I don’t know where you are, but in Maryland the weather is just gorgeous.  It’s been sunny since Friday, and it’s been gradually getting warmer.  Today promises to be sunny and over 70 degrees.  I love it (and so do the kids).  We went to a gorgeous neighborhood park yesterday with a 300 acre lake as it’s center.  Simply beautiful! As the weather warms up, we are getting ready for what I know will be an awesome summer.  My son is 3, my daughter will probably start crawling during the warmer months, and we can’t wait...

What I’m Lovin’

I love stuff.  I don’t know why, but I do.  My husband thinks I own way  too many books and beauty products, but what does he know?  Sure, I go to Target to get one item and leave with $150 worth of stuff, but everything I get is a necessity.  I mean, who wants to run out of gum, body wash, hair smoothies, or anything else?  I sure don’t. So, I thought it would be fun if I shared with you some of the things that I’m just lovin’ right now.  These are all items I’ve used and they are worth my money and my time.  None of these companies are paying me to say any of this (these companies don’t even know I exist right now…lol), so you can trust that my opinions are genuine.  If you are asking yourself, “why should I trust what CandidBelle has to say?,” I totally understand.  After all, you are still getting to know me. Well, I’m a mom, a wife, a professional, a friend, a daughter, a sister, a cousin, and a down to earth chick from Brooklyn, NY who just wants to share what I love with people who might benefit.  That’s all.  Nothing more, nothing less. By the way, I also included all of the items in my Sisterhood Project packages (I’ll put an asterisk next to the included items).  Enjoy, belles! *Live Beautifully Lip Balm...
