Dream Come Shoe
You’ve always had dreams. Not the one where you have cocktails with Christian Bale, but more like the one you shared with all island girls growing up—life in a big city, trotting past sky-rises and artsy neighborhoods, all while wearing fabulous shoes as comfy as your familiar rubbah slippahs.
Sao Paulo-based shoe label Melissa’s Plastic Dreams lets you live out that fantasy, by teaming up with famous architects and designers from around the globe to create plastic shoes that are a totally modern and high-fashion riff on your old-school jellies.

If they made a movie of the mealtime portion of your life, it would be a Gone with the Wind-worthy marathon – filled with scenes of you scrambling through the pantry for yet another bachelorette meal like Scarlet dug for rotten potatoes. It was a sad day at the end of the month when you tried to make dinner from the remnants in your fridge (salad dressing and a dried-up onion), all because you couldn’t find time to shop.
Since you’re not getting any less busy (and Rhett’s not around to help), use someone else’s time and muscle to stock your fridge,... Read more »

Now that you’re Safety Mom, the key to keeping baby safe isn’t locks on cabinets and constant supervision – it’s teaching them how to survive in the water.

Take It From The Top
You’re a Blackberry-wielding, email-checking, blog-reading, Twitter-following machine. But that doesn’t make you an information junkie – just a content consumer with a healthy appetite.
But being Ms. Know-It-All can get a little, well, consuming. So click over to Alltop.com. The brainchild of Guy Kawasaki – the Kalihi boy turned Silicon Valley venture capitalist – Alltop is sort of an RSS reader on steroids.
The site collects articles and tracks sites on “all the topics” (hence the name) on the web and sorts them into categories that range from ADHD to Tourette’s... Read more »
