Mother/Son Tween Travel to London
Huffington Post - over 1 year
My son, Seth, 12, has developed a fascination with all things British. I'm not quite sure where this ardent interest came from, but we used it as impetus to plan a family trip this past August. My husband was unable to take the time off from work, so it became a mommy and me overseas adventure... our first together. I had been to London twice before... the first time ironically on a singles trip where I met my husband. So, this felt somewhat like coming full circle... my now traveling there with my son. I did not use a travel agent or book a package. I've become quite good at online research and spent considerable time poking around the web, in particular to find some off-the-beaten track experiences we might pursue. As walkable as sections of London are, some of the destinations are quite spread out. We became adept at taking the Underground, which was impressive... speedy, clean and easy to navigate. Some of the tube escalators are the deepest I've ever seen, and they ...

Jane Seymour Talks Candidly About Botox And Plastic Surgery
Huffington Post - over 1 year
At 64, Jane Seymour says her secret to aging gracefully has nothing to do with going under the knife or getting fancy fillers.  The former Bond girl and veteran TV actress says aging gracefully has got more to do with accepting changes rather than fighting them.  “I tried Botox but didn’t like it," Seymour told The Express in a recent interview. "I could see it in my face and I can see it in other people too ... I’d rather be the best I can be at the age I’m at," Seymour said, adding, she likes her wrinkles "too much."  Seymour reveals she instead focuses on her health to keep herself looking her best and feeling good, inside and out. "If you look your best, it builds your self-esteem," she said, adding that she regularly does pilates, light weights, spinning and that she tries to walk as much as possible to stay fit. "Everything in moderation." She told Closer Weekly in a 2014 interview that she was in better shape now in her 60s than she was when she first rose to fame as ...

Cannes kicks into high gear with 'Mad Max' film
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
"Mad Max: Fury Road", a demented sci-fi road battle movie starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, gave a jolt of adrenaline and glitz to the Riviera event, which leans heavily to arthouse fare. The cast and director George Miller trod the red carpet for the black-tie projection, setting off a constellation of photographers' flashes. Theron stood out in a figure-hugging, canary yellow gown and was accompanied by her partner, actor Sean Penn, who wore all-black with no tie around his open shirt. Other stars stepping into the huge, 2,300-seat theatre included Jane Seymour, wearing a ruby-and-diamond necklace, Julianne Moore and Naomi Watts.

Jane Seymour Doubts She'll Remarry After 'Really Hard' Divorce
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
Jane Seymour is seeing someone new, but she likely won't be walking down the aisle any time soon -- or ever. The former "Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman" actress recently told FOX411 that she's content just dating in the wake of her divorce after more than two decades of marriage. "I don’t know if I need to get married again," she said. "There is someone in my life right now who I’m really enjoying. No one knows who it is, just a nice, normal, lovely person that I met actually about 34 years ago. A similar thing happened to him as me and we just found each other. For right now this is very good." The 64-year-old actress also admitted that splitting from now ex-husband James Keach in April 2013 has been "really, really, really hard." "It really has [but] James and I have found a way to have a new relationship, and move on so that’s what we’re doing," Seymour said, adding that the pair will continue to work together at their Open Hearts Foundation.

<em>Andrea Gargotta:</em> How to Celebrate Valentine's Day with Your Kids
Huffington Post - about 3 years
By Andrea Gargotta Onto the next holiday? It can sometimes feel like that . . . at least for me, with two kids, counting down the days to each one. Next up: Valentine's Day. Is it really a holiday? Or is this a made up occasion for retailers to ring up a few bucks? It seems as though when trying to research some fact there is quite a debate on this very topic. As many moms like me know-- from sitting for hours hunched over craft supplies assisting my children in making cards for their classmates--for our children this is a VERY special and REAL holiday. Every year I give my children cards, candy and some little gift all wrapped in a red basket. This year I have decided to make a "romantic dinner" for us. We will have cheese fondue. I am going to use a small heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out bread for dipping. We will eat off the fancy china, of course. I will play love music and light the candles. The fun starts after dinner. We will decorate cupcakes! Courtesy of Andr ...
