While we all might be feeling relieved that COVID-induced online school has come to an end (at least for now!), summer is likely looking a bit different this year too. Most summer camps are cancelled or at least postponed, travel plans have gone to the wayside, and we're all holding our breath to see what the summer will bring. Here in Arizona, businesses have been opening up and people are flocking to restaurants and stores.... and coronavirus cases are sadly on the uptick. At our house, we're being cautious and still laying low. We may hit the highway for a road trip or two in July, but unless we want to spend our days ...Read more.

The crown jewel of awards season, celebrities pull out all the stops for the annual Academy Awards (aka the Oscars) red carpet. The fashion set watches with breathless anticipation to see who will be crowned best-dressed of the night. Of course, everyone has their own opinion, but here at Mom Style Lab we hands-down agree that Renee Zellweger not only took home the statue for Best Actress, but she also won the red carpet. Embodying the glamour of Old Hollywood, she was perfection in her slinky, perfectly-tailored, elegant Armani Prive gown. Love! That said, we had a number of other favorites that were flat-out stunning ...Read more.

Let me begin by saying I am a huge fan of Dyson products in general. I've owned at least three of their vacuums and the pricey Dyson Hair Dryer is a game changer. I love it! And, so do my husband and daughter. Worth the $400 price tag. (Read my review.) Needless to say, I was excited to try the new Dyson Airwrap -- hair dryer, straighter and curler all-in-one. I received it as a Christmas gift and couldn't wait to check it out. It comes in a terrific case and there are several attachments that are easy to put on and take off. I read tips on how to use it and proceeded to try it several times. On my hair, our ...Read more.
