How to Choose the Ideal Living Room Furniture for My New Home

If you’ve just bought a new home, you probably don’t want your old, worn-out living room furniture in there. Just like you, your living room needs a fresh start.

Most homeowners worry that buying…

50th Birthday Gifts for Women

Birthday Celebration Ideas - 6 Things To Do On Your Birthday

Birthdays are a very special occasion that one should bring in with innovative and unique ways that make it a memorable affair throughout your life. Although it is said that we should live each day fully, for birthday’s, you should go beyond full and live it in a…

If we were to survey the working mom community by asking, "What is the single most important thing you grab when heading out the door?" the vast majority of you would say (children aside) "My Blackberry or iPhone." Today there is another gadget to hit the market that may just change the way you answer this question with Apple's newest release, the iPad. With its larger than life multi-touch screen, it simply looks like a beefed up version of the iPhone... minus the phone capability. So, what's all the fuss about:

1. Large touch screen enables you to better view and surf the web
2. Split screen view and large touch keyboard for sending/receiving email
3. Ability to shuffle through your photos and albums with ease
4. Watch movies (we recommend the Mom Mentor videos at Butterfly) or YouTube in HD
5. Fun apps like iTunes, iBooks, iPod, Maps, Calendar, iWork, Notes

Apple uses verbiage like "compelling... in just a few taps" and "see more... find more" in their online marketing materials. What MORE do we possibly need?! As working moms, we're all for new technology IF it makes our lives easier and allows us to multi-task like superheroes. But, trying to persuade us to buy another toy for nearly $500 for the summed up benefit of being able to TOUCH a larger screen is not a key selling point for two moms spear-heading a global community of working moms. Don't get us wrong, we love Apple, in fact, the Weekly Wings are drafted on a MacBook. A MacBook that has many of the SAME functions as the iPad without having to dirty up the screen with fingerprints, from us or from our kids. So, the verdict stands... we applaud Apple for generating yet another toy that our children or significant others can add to the their birthday lists. But, in all honesty, we will take a pass on this one and save ourselves 499 bucks!

Now with all of the money we've just saved you we have a better option: Spend it to truly make a difference in the lives of children and in the environment in which they live. On April 1st went live as the host of an auction whereas the highest bidder will WIN a one-of-a-kind experience with Hollywood's "green couple" and the stars of Planet's Greens, Living with Ed, Ed Begley Jr. and wife Rachelle. You and a guest have the opportunity to receive domestic roundtrip airfare to LA, stay in a luxury hotel, dine with the Begley's and enjoy a gift from MY ECO shopping bag system. Proceeds raised benefit Green Wish and VH1 Save The Music Foundation rather than an iPad which has no major affect on the way in which we lead our lives. We can wholeheartedly say that this will be money well spent. Please bid today.
