Come to Mama: Müller’s New Dessert-Inspired Yogurt

I don’t always review yogurt. But when I do, I make sure it comes in strawberry cheesecake:

 

muller-yogurt

Yeah, I’m easy like that.

Müller just launched this line of dessert-inspired yogurt — Strawberry Cheesecake and Raspberry Brownie Supreme and Peach Cobbler and Dulce De Leche Delight… oh my! — and asked me to share my thoughts about it.  My first thought being, “Where can I hide this in the fridge so the kids don’t eat it?”  (Hey, I was like an only child; sharing is not my forte.)  I will admit:  I usually eat light yogurts, so my eyebrows raised when I read the label (200+ calories).  However, unlike most yogurts, this Müller one actually left me feeling — gasp! — full.  I didn’t graze on the kids’ leftovers for at least another hour!  And, yes, it is as yummy as it sounds.

The yogurt not only comes with crunchy goodies on the side, but also a hilarious video campaign.  Check out this music video, “Satisfy Me (Yogurt with Benefits),” from Girls With Glasses:

Mama needs a break/mama-mama needs a break

Darn straight.

Get the Celebrity Mom Look: Victoria Beckham

Okay, so when you think of “mom-friendly style,” and “comfortable” and “wearable,” Victoria Beckham isn’t exactly the first celebrity to come to mind.  But I gotta tell you, I came across this picture of Vicky (yes, we’re on a nickname basis — I call her “Vicky” and she calls me “Who?”) last year and replicated the look because I’m a creepy celebrity style stalker.  The ensemble is not only mom-friendly (I’ve worn it to MANY kids’ parties…many, many, many), but it’s also classic; it’s still totally on-trend. And, best of all, you don’t need to be a size zero to rock it.

Here’s what you need:

Silk-and-cotton-blend cargo pants.  (Da Nang.  Orginally $99.  Now just $19.90 on Amazon!)

grey-tee

Simple heather grey tee that’s probably already in your closet.  But if not, here’s one on Amazon for just $13.99.

boyfriend-blazer

Black boyfriend blazer that will become your go-to jacket for fall.  (Amazon; $27, I kid you not)

taupe-wedge-pump

Okay, so Vicky’s four-inch heels aren’t great for chasing after your kid after he dumps orange juice on the cat’s head (I say, um, hypothetically).  However, wedges are a cute and more kid-chasing friendly option.  Check out the above pair from Franco Sarto for $88.95.

aviators-marc

Bring out your inner Top Gun (and, for me, hide under-eye circles) with these bad-ass aviators.  Marc by Marc Jacobs on sale for $59.48 (originally $85).

 

If you add that up…it’s barely $200 for the entire outfit!  Which is just slightly less than Vicky paid.  Just slightly.

My Weekly Thank-You Notes to My Kids

You know, I’m always instructing my kids to say “thank you” and I realized… perhaps I should be thanking THEM more, as well.  So in the spirit of showing my appreciation, I’m starting a tradition of writing weekly thank-you notes to my three-year-old son and five-year-old daughter for their recent efforts.
