Day 333 – Tweener stores stateside, part 3

Tuesday 29th November 2011. I saved my favourite review on the Tweener market til last.  We discovered shop within shop while in Times Square (a great location for hanging out and shopping with the tweens!).  Launched in the spring 2011, it’s part of American Eagle, which we’ve always shopped in for the slightly cheaper versions … Continue reading

Day 328 – Tweener stores stateside, part 2

Thursday 24th November. Aeropostale was the second store we reviewed with Thila (our tweener!) while we were in NYC. Their girls range (Aeropostale p.s.) covers 4-14, but in reality it is more kids colourful stuff than pre-teen cool gear.  She was much happier shopping the main range, which is in fact targeted at 14 to … Continue reading

Day 321 – Tweener stores stateside, part 1

Thursday 17th November 2011. Reflecting back on our shopaholic tendencies in the States, we cannot forget (and should seriously think about) what motivated the kids and what left them cold.  As shopaholic parents (in remission!), watching them grow towards teenagers, it’s interesting to occasionally step back and watch what makes them tick, and what turns … Continue reading

Day 310 – ABC kitchen

Day 307 – Museums and Theatres

I finally, as Hubbie disappeared for a business lunch, managed to get the kids into the MOMA.  … Continue reading

Day 300 – New York, New York

so good they named it twice…… ….. …… …. The great thing about New York is you walk off a plane, exhausted, but so excited whether it’s you first time or your fiftieth.  The city that never sleeps, just grabs you and keeps you fighting against the overwhelming desire to curl up and snooze.  Especially … Continue reading
