Gwen Stefani's Rockin' the Pet Store with Harajuku Lovers at Petco

Gwen Stefani has been pretty busy lately. I recently caught THE VOICE judge fronting NO DOUBT for a fantastic set at Chicago's RIOT FEST, where she made her love of our local pizza very clear - stating that she "had some sent home" (hopefully Blake Shelton got to share). Of her many endeavors, her Harajuku Lovers collection of fashion and fragrances has been a successful one, and we really loved her Harajuku Mini line of kids fashion when it was a Target exclusive a few years back. Now, Harajuku Lovers is coming to PetCo as a line of colorful fashions and accessories for dogs.


Crazy Foam: A Creepy Nostalgia Trip of Chemical Yuck...

Back in 1965, the American Aerosol Company launched Crazy Foam to "make bathtime fun for kids and easy for parents." The concept was simple, with shaving cream-style soap packed into a can that featured artwork from a variety of licensed characters. DC Comics and MARVEL were in the mix, and there were others like Popeye, The Smurfs, and more. By the 90s, there were even editions based of characters from The Simpsons, and then the brand went on hiatus. I vaguely remembered these from the late 70s/early 80s, so when I was pitched some samples for a Crazy Foam rebirth, I jumped on it. Thing is, after having these in-hand, my parental instincts kicked in and made two things very clear - Crazy Foam is creepy, and I'm not comfortable letting my girls use it based on the ingredients and propellants contained within.


It's World Teacher's Day, so let's #GROWtheGood...

October 5, 2015 is World Teacher's Day, and to celebrate, Life is Good met with teachers and asked them "what makes you connect with a child?"

For every use of the #GROWtheGood hashtag, Life is Good will provide one dollar of support to help kids in need. Check it out...


Five Essentials for Staying Calm, Cool & Collected in Xtreme Situations

THE ROCK FATHER is sharing #TheIndisposables in his life as part of a Schick® Xtreme3® sponsored series for Socialstars. Horns up! \m/ \m/

Years ago, especially before we had kids, I definitely had a short fuse at times. These days, things are different, and as my friend Geno recently told me, a more accurate depiction would be that I have "a very long fuse attached to a very big bomb" - so it's important to stay calm, cool and collected under extreme circumstances. For better or worse, I've been in some challenging circumstances over the years, and learning to keep cool is a fine art that I have yet to fully master - but I'm getting better. A lot of it comes down to the appearance of being calm, cool and collected - even though there's something brewing beneath the surface. This is especially helpful when dealing with something that I do daily... children, and all the things and people that go with them.
