• New Year, New You

    Cliché title? Maybe… Ok, fine; definitely! But that’s ok. This post is all about said cliché, as basic as that may sound. Picture this- It’s New Year’s Eve the world over, and as the clock strikes twelve in each respective time zone, champagne bottles POP as people toast to a better and brighter future. And yes, this scene repeats itself year after year. In fact, it’s quite fascinating what the opportunity to start anew […]

  • A Pop of Color for Mary Poppins

    I may have been living under a rock, but I literally got wind of the fact that a Mary Poppins sequel was just released…TODAY. I know! Who am I?!? And despite the fact that I’m ?? years old, I’m actually excited about this holiday release! What better way to bring Poppins back and introduce her to the next generation of little ones than during the most magical time of year:) I had a concern, […]

  • Scamander Suits Up

    I’ll never forget the day that Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince was released unto us diehard Harry Potter fans. It was July 16th, way back in 2005, and while I had read each book in the series in a matter of days each time, (two, to be precise;) the Harry Potter mania gripping the nation at this juncture, (what with the movies being released one after the next and the end of […]

  • Are You Thankful or Are You Grateful?

    Every fourth Thursday for the last 397 years, we, the good people, have been celebrating Thanksgiving by gathering with family and close friends to offer up thanks for all the positivity in our lives. Year in and year out… Year after year… This year being no different. And believe me when I say that I set out to write the requisite Thanksgiving piece about having an attitude of gratitude and all that fuzzy, feel […]

  • Trick or…Trouble?

    I’ve confirmed it; with my weather app, that is. Fall is here to stay! And while you may be thinking pumpkin spice lattes, cozy Uggs, and cute sweaters, I’m thinking… BOO!! That’s right; I’ve got Halloween on my mind! Now you do too:) Halloween is great fun for the kiddies, but who are we fooling?? Kids + pounds of sugar disguised as innocent treats + costumes + a twilight adventure on the streets = […]

  • Carrie and Her Blue Baby Bump

    For those of you that tuned in to the CMT Artists of the Year special, you probably noticed that for the first time in its eight year history there was an all-female lineup of honorees. *cue the applause* I’ll have you know, though, that it may have entirely been an effort in damage control after the 2018 CMA Awards nominations included not one female artist in the Entertainer of the Year category, as well […]

  • Kylie Jenner: Boss Babe in a Blazer

    Fun fact: According to Forbes Magazine, Kylie Jenner is poised to become the world’s youngest self-made billionaire, thanks in large part to the success of her cosmetics brand, Kylie Cosmetics. Yes, I’ll let that sink in for a moment before moving forward… 3…2…1… Ready?? Well, ready or not, let’s just say that Kylie dressed every bit the part when she showed up at the MTV Video Music Awards this past week to support her […]

  • Feet Talk

    The age old adage goes, ‘Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes.’ If you plan on judging a nurse, though, make that 4 miles. Don’t believe me? Well then hash it out with MEDSURGE Nursing! A study involving 146 nurses, concluded that in a 12-hour shift nurses clock in an average of 4-5 miles. *Currently picking jaw up off of floor* And let’s just say that regular folk walk an […]

  • Monday Blues by Heidi

    I’ll share my summer guilty pleasure, if you share yours! Deal?? Here goes. My all-time favorite summer guilty pleasure is watching America’s Got Talent! Yup, secret’s out! I love the fun, the energy, the laughter, the emotional moments, and of course, the TALENT! But the one thing that keeps me coming back for more is the panel of judges; Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Mel B, and of course Heidi Klum! They’re fantastic at what […]

  • Summer Staycation

    Everyone needs a vacation. Period. You go too long without one… you crash and burn. Or to be more accurate, you end up sprawled on your couch in days old pj’s crying a river over a tub of Ben and Jerry’s. True story. Bottom line is, life is full of stressors. And if we don’t take time to decompress, we suffer, and the people around us suffer. Let’s take you for instance, the happy-go-lucky […]

  • Carrie Goes Whimsical for Radio Disney

    I’m about to divulge some information that may or may not give away my age, but I’m going to put it out there anyways! I grew up on Hannah Montana, Wizards of Waverly Place, High School Musical… you get the picture??? Good times! So yeah, I’ve got a soft spot for all things Disney Channel, including Radio Disney. And if you don’t, then I don’t know you. The end. In any case, it’s this […]

  • To Be Or Not To Be- A Murse, That Is!

    There are statistics, and then there are STATISTICS. And in honor of Father’s Day; a day on which we celebrate the males in our lives, I’d like to bring ‘a STATISTIC’ to the forefront. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 91% percent of registered nurses are female, while a mere 9% are male. Why, though? Why, why, WHY?!? Stereotype; plain and simple. Despite the fact that gender equality is making headlines in today’s society, […]

  • Gigi Hadid: A Stained Glass Godess

    If we had a king and queen here in the big ole US of A, there would be a royal ball each year. Naturally. We do not, though… have a king… or a queen… in which case, sadly, there is no ball. BUT. We’ve got something really, realllly close to that royal ball, only it’s called the Met Gala. And if we’re still using analogies I will go so far as to say that […]

  • Of Motherhood and Nursing

    Breakfast in bed has been served, the fresh bouquet of roses is sitting pretty on your nightstand, the kids have all scampered off, and you’re lost in thought…. Perhaps it’s time to pursue a career. After all, the kids are only getting older, you’ve got more free time on your hands, and there’s that ever growing itch; to accomplish and make a difference in the world. But what to do? The adjustment of going […]

  • National Autism Awareness Month

    April is National Autism Awareness Month. And considering that about 1 in 68 children has been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and that it is reported across ALL racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups, chances are that you, my dear pediatric nurse, have come across your fair share of autistic patients. Let’s get the facts straight, though. ASD is not, as the masses are wont to think, a single mental disorder. In fact, there […]

  • Why You Should Be Dating a Nurse This Valentine’s Day

    As if you needed a reason; am I right??? In all seriousness, though, dating a nurse isn’t all red roses and Godiva chocolates. There’s a non-conventional work schedule to contend with, crazy hours, emergencies, exhaustion… And the list goes on. In fact, if you’re dating a nurse this Valentine’s Day, you may be taking a rain check and celebrating on the 15th or 16th because, y’know, 12 hour shifts. On the flip side, though, […]

  • National Blood Donor Month

    Blood. It’s one of those things us humans tend to take for granted, until we lose it. And for millions of people, this ‘loss’ is a reality. Accident victims, cancer patients, and the likes, all count on blood banks being full at any given time with their specific blood type. In fact, according to the American Red Cross, someone in the U.S. needs blood every 2 seconds. At the same time, though, only 10% […]

  • Wonder Woman. Wonder Dress.

    If you had the choice to be either a Mediterranean goddess or Wonder Woman, which would you choose? Tough call, huh? Lucky for Gal Gadot, she gets to be both! An Israeli actress and model, Gal Gadot was honored at the Critics’ Choice Awards, with the second annual #SeeHer award. This was completely apropos as according to one Critics’ Choice Awards spokesperson, “Gadot broke through this year as a powerful voice advocating for women, […]

  • Gone Gifting

    If you’re a responsible human being who takes care of holiday gifts well before the holidays set in, please skip this piece and move on with your life. If, on the other hand, you’re as irresponsible as someone I may or may not know (please stop guessing; it’s rude!) then read on!! SO- as you’ve surmised, the holidays are upon us- like really, really, REALLY upon us. And as I’ve surmised, there are still […]

  • Selena Slays in All Black

    So there’s this really cool event that takes place each year. It’s called the Billboard Women in Music event. Nope, I’ve never been invited, but I heard that this year’s was epic! The reason?? The main award, titled simply, ‘Woman of the Year,’ went to none other than Selena Gomez. Yes, ladies; Selena is BACK!! And she is doing better than ever! She’s had an insane year on all fronts and this award meant […]
