Save Your Shoes - Three Products You Will Want to Invest In

Among many other things, this economy has thought us about buying quality over quantity. Buying things that will last past the trends and fads and that will endure triumphantly over the wear-and-tear. This is what French women have always done with their fashion and accessories choices. Their expensive but few yearly purchases are considered investments pieces: the classic designer handbag, the impeccably cut jacket and the shoes. Ah, the shoes…

If you have…

Know Where You Came From - The Genographic Project

National Geographic and IBM joined forces in a global research project to chart the migratory history of us humans. The purpose of the project is to gather DNA from people around the world (like you and me) to study how our ancient ancestors migrated to where we are today. How cool is that!

I bought the…

The Fitbug - Motivation in my Pocket



I do enjoy my workouts… the second they are over. Granted, there is a definite sense of pride and “I did good for my body today” feeling that follows a good workout. But somehow, that sense of achievement holds no reserve to motivate me for any subsequent workout. I’m on my own. Left to my own device, I would probably never exercise. And really, I only workout because I have to. I wish that I were one of those that could get lost in the endorphin…

Virtuous Lip Gloss - Positive Words for the Lips

I could certainly relate to Sara Buntrock as she talked about her tween daughter when I met her this last January at a gift show. Being a mother of a tween myself (any child between the age of 7 to 12 is considered one), I know that they start having very mature tastes at a very early age (thank you Hanna Montana/Miley Cyrus and iCarly/Miranda Cosgrove).

Make-up is definitely one area that young girls love to explore. Although I do not encourage my young daughters to wear makeup, I…

The Girl Store - Buy Her Life Back

“Experience the sensation of buying a girl… her life back”. That’s the baiting, provocative but so very clever intro of the Girl Store website, effective at demonstrating how a girl child in India can be “bought back” from the perils of being sold for marriage, sex slavery, labor slavery or terrorism.

The Girl Store, run by…

Fresh Wave: Clear the Air

I am a huge fan of Fresh Wave odor eliminators. Not only are they eco-friendly, but they have no strong perfumes or fragrances to mask odors (which give me a serious headache). They are made of natural ingredients such…

DIY On-Demand Marketplace for Designers (and the rest of us)



There was a day when designers, artists and other creatives were limited to the Zazzle and CafePress marketplaces to offer their creations on demand. But today, previously unattainable production processes have now become available for many types of designs. Technology is to…

Not Your Mother's Ebay Auction

 

Well, by now, I’m sure that each of us is subscribed to at least a few of the discount shopping sites à la Ideeli, Gilt, RueLaLa, etc… And then the Deal-of-the-Day sites, à la Groupon. Will we ever buy retail again?

Of course, all of these shopping platforms have been born to the Web, which has made it all possible. The latest shopping discount model? Online auctions that combine auctions  with the…

Valentina Ramos - Gifted Illustrator

How befitting that, today, Valentine’s Day, I would choose to tell you about a wonderful and playful illustrator by the name of Valentina. I thought I’d pay her homage on this day meant for lovers as I have a mad crush on her work, which is, in fact, a tribute to a true love for life.

You want to pay attention here, because I’m quite sure that we will be seeing…

Tweet Tweet Home - Spring is Right Around the Corner

I know, it may seem that I am jumping the gun on spring here, but as I live in SoCal (don’t hate me!), I can tell you that the birds are a-buzzing over here!  I have noticed (and heard) plenty of house finches looking for a place to nest this last week and thought it would be a good time to put up our…

A Heart to Heart Discussion About Chocolate

By Mrs/Dr. T, Snarky PhD Scientist and Guest Contributor

The media has done a pretty good job making sure EVERYONE knows that chocolate might be good for you. It’s hard to find a women’s magazine that hasn’t promoted this message, particularly this time of year when Valentine’s Day sends chocolate sales…

What NOT To Buy For Valentine's Day

By Kristin Fast, Guest Contributor and Mamarazzi

It’s Valentine’s Day, late 1990s… a young twenty-something couple is still in the bliss of early relationship sexytimes… before the babies, the mortgage, the vomiting dogs… I digress.

4 Things I Learned From Being a Sex Columnist

By Marjie Killeen, Guest Contributor

Although my 17 year-old son calls me a “Sexpert”, I’m definitely not one. I have no special sex training or credentials. But, during the last year of writing my column, “Sex & the Suburbs ” for MakeItBetter.net, I’ve interviewed many people…

For A Spirited Valentine's Day - DIY Blackberry Infused Vodka

At the end of the summer, I sent two of my sons and our moose sized dog Dutch, down the lane to pick blackberries.  An hour later they returned, almost empty handed, with just a pitiful pile of berries tumbling around the bottom of their bowl. I had envisioned an overflowing bounty upon their return and was confused.  “Uhmm, we found out that Dutch likes blackberries too!” they exclaimed with purple stained smiles and ran through the house on to their next adventure.

Clean…

Breakfast in Bed for Two - Berry Puff Pancake

I remember the good ol’ days when my husband used to make me breakfast in bed. In fact, as Valentine’s Day approaches I asked him about the amazing puffed pancake he used to make for me way back when. It took a bit of prompting (obviously it has been way too long) but he finally remembered and started the search for the lost recipe. Torn from the pages of a 1992 Select Homes magazine, we finally found it! Here it is…
