It all started with a baby blog in 2009. Being pregnant and finding I had a lot to say about parenting I took to Tumblr to talk about it all. Four years later now being featured as a "Tumblr Parenting Spotlight Blog" with countless entries waiting to be read by my eventual grown children it's grown into so much more. A wonderful community has developed out of this small corner of the internet with a family and lifestyle blog to show for it.

I never was an activist, that is till Occupy Wall Street started. I have a strong sense of standing up for what you believe in. Occupy gave me that outlet for the first time and has it been a wild ride. I founded Parents for Occupy Wall St in 2011.
The combined experience of my professional management work and the crash course in grass roots organizing I received through Occupy helped me be one of the first responders on the ground when Hurricane Sandy hit Brooklyn NY. Through this I founded Red Hook Volunteers.

ilubeu is the only 100% coconut oil lube made in small batches and delivered in "fun time" friendly packaging.
Once upon a time an American girl and Portuguese boy met in Paris and decided to run away together to the coast. This started a whirlwind romance and to help our bodies keep up with our new found passion we started looking for "a little help". Wanting an alternative to the yucky sticky lubes on market and finding no options beyond the chemical ridden and poorly designed items populating store shelves, we hit the internet.
We did a little research for alternatives and gave coconut oil a try. And you know what? It was AWESOME. Feeling like we've discovered the best secret know to man (very possibly the fountain of youth even) we decided to share our discovery world via ilubeu.
