Tweet We have been waiting for a while to add the new Diastasis Rehab splints in the new Beige color.  Back when we started selling Diastasis Rehab splints (7 years ago), we sold both white and black.  We found that an overwhelming majority of people wanted the color black.  So we stuck with selling only black.   The beige color splint was supp

Tweet Three weeks ago I was invited to an amazing event hosted by Audrey McClelland and Proctor and Gamble. It was a Back to School Event where we were treated to manis and pedis and shown some great stuff that Proctor and Gamble have for getting the kids ready for back to school. And I have to admit, I am not ready, but I wanted to pass this che

Stranger Danger
July 20 2012, 2 Comments


Earlier this week, here in Philadelphia where I live, there was an attempted child abduction caught on tape. A ten-year old girl was walking home with her two-year old brother and a man physically picked her up and tried to take her. She fought him off with tactics that she picked up by watching Law and Order SVU. Her little brother also screamed so loud that it scared the attacker away. I was invited to the local NBC affiliate to speak on-camera about what happened and how I plan on [...]

Pretty Mommies Skincare - Our Newest Product Line
June 21 2012, 0 Comments


Pregnancy mask, oily skin, freak acne breakouts, I had it all when I was pregnant with my little ones. Even now my skin gets a bit oily and I sometimes get funky little breakouts, so I am very critical when it comes to skincare products. Recently new skincare company Pretty Mommies contacted me about reviewing their products I have to admit, I was hesitant at first. I mean what makes them so different from the other brands that are out on the market, ALL formulated for and marketed towards pre [...]

House Plants, the New Shower Gift
June 01 2012, 0 Comments


While looking for new and interesting baby shower gifts, I recently came across a brand new company called Green Your Air. Their baby shower gifts are basically PLANTS! NASA has provided research that shows that plants can naturally filter dangerous chemicals that are found in your home. That "new smell" that emanates off of your baby's new crib, mattress and other furniture could be very harmful. And because many new homes are made with man-made materials and are sealed to be more energy ef [...]

I Found a Skin Care Line That Honestly Works - GIVEAWAY
May 22 2012, 40 Comments


I have been on a lifelong quest to find a regimen that works for my busy lifestyle. My experimentation has lead me from Clinique, BeautiControl, Clarisonic to Neutrogena, Olay...the list is endless. Like you, I have received little packet-sized samples of skin care products, but there is barely enough of a sample for one to realize a clear result. That is until I attended the Face 2 Face Event. Christina from Therapon gave each attendee a FULL skin care kit to try so that we could adequately [...]

Mother's Day Gifts From Small Children
May 08 2012, 0 Comments


Every year I rush around trying to purchase Mother's Day gifts for not just my mother, but my mother-in-law, and two grandmothers. I hand the gifts to my two boys to present to our "mothers", but I realized last year, there is a huge disconnect. My boys would love the opportunity to contribute to that celebration of the women who have given us so much support. So this Mother's Day is our chance to do just that. This year, I decided to have my boys "create" their gifts. About a month ago, [...]
