Movie Mavens

Speaking of "Mamma Mia," at the end of the day, kick back, relax with a bag of popcorn and take in one of our suggestions for Top 10 Movie Moms. These truly aren't all chick flicks but complex films with characters portrayed by talented women and guided by directors not afraid to take a risk.

Euro Chic

This month we're infected with the travel bug of the European persuasion. Plan your trip around great accommodations such as Top 10 Hotels in Spain, Top 10 Hotels in France and Top 10 Hot European Hotels. For more great ideas on Euro travel, check out our Europe Travel Guide.

A Place in the Sun

If you can't afford to fly abroad, go on a U.S. pampering adventure. We're reporting back from our visit to the famous Golden Door Spa near San Diego, where we enjoyed eight extraordinary days of nurturing, pampering and self-care.

Further up north, resting on the famous coastal bluffs of Southern California, Montage Laguna Beach currently has a variety of exclusive offers for locals through May and June. Highlights include seasonal treatments and services at the 20,000-square-foot indoor/outdoor Spa Montage, sumptuous dining specials at breathtaking oceanfront settings, a weekly education wine series and more.

Mommy Mobiles

Our car of the month, too, is momma-friendly: the 2010 Chrysler Town & Country, a spacious and utilitarian family van perfect for schlepping the kids and their gear around town and to the country to visit Grandma. It's one of our Top 10 Cars for Moms for mothers-on-the-go who require reliable, safe and versatile "mommy-mobiles." We also put together a Top 10 Crossovers list.
