Dow and Forever

Before you bought your first car, you researched, compared, and only after five test drives signed the papers. And when you met “the one,” you didn’t jump in with both feet until you took him for a test drive, too. All of which is to say: You take contracts very seriously.

That’s why Jason Dow is the one to trust with your one-of-a-kind, personalized wedding ring.

He’s the only custom jewelry designer on O‘ahu to utilize state-of-the-art computer modeling during the design process, and his wide selection of stones and phenomenal level of detail – Read more »

Water Babies

You’ve always been the model of safety. You wear your seatbelt religiously (and would even if it weren’t the law), unplug appliances to prevent fires, and use personal protection every time (except when your children were conceived, but that was planned, right?)

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.

Good thing Hawai‘i now has four certified Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) instructors to individually teach water survival skills... Read more »

Take It From The Top

www.leichic.comYou’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 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 »

Sponsored Edition: The Mother Lode

www.leichic.comAnother weekend, another baby shower or baby luau. And another last-minute trip to the giant big-box baby store to search for a suitable gift. (Then cross fingers someone else doesn’t buy the same thing!)

 Next time, forget the traffic, parking and gift duplication, and click over to the locally owned and operated online boutique . Each and every one of the shop’s unique and contemporary items is handpicked, giving Modern Mommy’s selection the cohesive feel of shopping in a sleek, well-edited on-land boutique.

Goodbye To You

www.leichic.comYou’ve had them all: short ones, tall ones, dumb ones, nerd ones, distant ones, smothering ones, too-perfect ones and wish-I-could-forget-that-one ones. But in all your breakup experiences, you never wrote songs about them.

Maybe that’s because you weren’t as witty, talented or frank as Linda Robertson, or just never had a boyfriend (or in her case, husband) as crazy, sex-obsessed, drunk, sweet, mean, and unforgettable as hers.

In her new memoir, “What Rhymes with Bastard: A Memoir and Love Story About the Worst Boyfriend Ever,” Robertson not only writes songs about Jack and life after moving from England to... Read more »
