Things I'm missing... badly!

As many of you already know, Sunshine state is where I live and unfortunately we got hit pretty bad by hurricane Wilma. So,... whoever is out there taking a hot shower,
I envy you! :)
Things I'm missing, badly:

You don't have to hide in a hotel to get the relaxation you deserve. This lavender-laced bath set offers everything you need to slip into a state of relaxation including the "Do Not Disturb" sign for the bathroom door.
"INSTANT HUMAN: just add coffee." And if you can't quite muster the energy to get to the coffee yourself, concerned family members can see the instructions and perform the necessary actions.

These original pieces are actual Siemens model telephones from the 1960's beautifully restored by hand. All the parts you can see are vintage, but with a state-of-the-art microphone, wiring and cord, they work like they're brand new.

Let it shine, snow or rain! I'm covered.

Do I miss stroller days? Not at all. I'm just asking to myself, why didn't I find Protect a Bub 8 years ago? :)
The mommy-boom market is here to stay and not better than real moms to know what we want, what kids need. Planning ahead comes with the territory. Moms learn that lesson, specially when going through season's changes. Protect a Bub becomes a must-click site for all of us. *Owned and operated by mothers like you, this company offers a wide variety of 'save-the-day' products for all kinds of weather. Not more excuses! Our little social butterflies will be ready to go under the sun, while raining or even through the snow. Let's check out some smart gears:

Finally, a fashion trend that provides warmth, comfort, and style for your baby. In recent years, Australian wool boots have warmed our feet. Protect-A-Bub introduces Snuggle Bub lambswool stroller inserts, made from 100% Australian lambs wool. Unlike products made from sherpa, an acrylic imitation wool, genuine lambswool keeps your baby comfortable naturally.The Snuggle Bub fits all strollers. It is available in two sizes Small (birth to 2 yrs) and Large (2 yrs to 4 yrs) and comes in Black or Navy peach skin fabric backing. $78.00 - 80.00
I'm a huge fan of companies who believe in giving back, supporting a charity or just making private donations to noble causes. Protect-a-Bub supports donations in honor of Amy Farber Friends of LAM Foundation. Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is a fatal lung disease that affects women during their childbearing years. Currently there is no treatment and no cure.

50 Tricks from a Mommy-Yoga enthusiast

When *Julie Tilsner told me she will be sending me a copy of her new book Mommy Yoga - the 50 stretches of motherhood, I got all excited and my trips to the mailbox became a daily routine :)
Going through this chop-chop & practical lecture, I found myself countless times and I wonder how many you will.
Julie invites us to fit the art of yoga into our everyday life... yeah! mommies do yoga too! :)
It will be right on schedule, in fact... it will should you how to squeeze all the benefits out of the most simple chores like reading a book to your kids or changing diapers (believe it or not).
Plus, it is all about quick chapters and straight to the point graphics (illustrations by Susan McKenna) neat!
If you are looking for the 'mom-to-mom' tips & tricks book, this is the one to get, read & keep it handy...

*Julie Tilsner is a contributing editor for Parenting Magazine, the author of two humor books about parenting as well as the best-selling "29 & counting: A Chick's guide to Turning 30".

Doing good, feeling pretty...

Doing good, feeling pretty is not just a cute phrase... it's my life's philosophy. I'm a believer of what goes around comes around (twice). But, takes more than my blurb to make a difference. Join the fight against cancer, shop for a good cause.
Flower Peddler will donate the profits from the sale of this candle to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, an organization that seeks funding for mammography for women in need. Help us give the gift of early detection.
"This special candle is a tribute to our mother, a breast cancer survivor. She won her fight with breast cancer but over 40,000 women lose their battle each year - that's one mother, sister, daughter or friend every 12 minutes. Early detection is the key to the survival of breast cancer, however, many women cannot afford mammograms."
