Last week I had the distinct pleasure of being a speaker at the Pennsylvania Women's Conference in Philadelphia. Many years ago, I was an attendee at this same conference and was inspired enough to forge ahead and start my online business BellyButtonBoutique.com. Speaking definitely brought the experience full circle for me, but I was also able to attend various sessions and walk away once again inspired. Here are my 3 takeaways from the day. 1.

We receive some excellent questions via email and our blog, so we decided to post the answers to the ones that are most frequently asked. Our hope is to provide clarity so that you can make and informed decision regarding your purchases. 1. Regarding the Diastasis Rehab products, can I just buy the splint?

So when I was asked to try Honest Tea I didn't think that it would be any different. Honest Beverages Lou from Honest Beverages dropped the above gift bag off at my office. I have met a lot of reps in my day. I can "honestly" tell you that Lou loves this company and believes in the products that he promotes. So, [...]

It Is Too Hot...To Be Pregnant
August 20 2012, 0 Comments


I honestly do not know how women can endure pregnancy during the summer months. The body is going through constant changes. Your blood volume increases, which causes your blood vessels to dilate, making your body temperature feel like its rising. Add to that the heat and humidity and you have the ingredients for one miserable woman. I can't imagine living in a warmer climate where its hot year round. So in response to all of the hot and uncomfortable women with child, I am going to give you [...]

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 [...]
