In November, I hosted a live webcast featuring some amazing mom-owned businesses.

Watch the Holiday Gift Guide Show where the guests were @Olivias4TeaATL, @Aqua_Blossom and @Quadmamma were the guests.






Mobile Chargestik 250



Tablets, phones and digital cameras were probably on your gift list this year. But the challenge is often keeping them powered on the go.

Check out the Mobile Chargestik. See how I used it to keep my iPhone 4s charged at home and in the air.

Guys Who Cook 250


I married a man who’s addicted to The Food Network and The Cooking Channel. Thankfully, I’m able to enjoy all the fruits of his culinary creativity. By the way, he made an amazing meal for our family and guests on Christmas Day. I was too busy eating to take photos. But believe me, it was amazing.

In honor of my husband and all the men who like to grill or saute, here are 7 Holiday Gift Ideas for Guys Who Cook.

#TreatsforTeachers was a new feature this year in the Gift Guide.

See the gifts I reviewed for A.J.’s preschool teachers that were all for less than $30, yet fun and personalized for each of their personalities.




For moms, I featured the Gloss Jewelry line with designer earrings and a necklace that would be amazing for a New Year’s or holiday party.

You have until December 31, 2013 to use the Osh Kos B’Gosh Holiday Coupon. See the video I created showcasing the adjustable waist jeans that are great for slim kids like A.J.
