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 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 »

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!)

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.

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 »

Mr Nice Guy

www.leichic.com

Just be honest, your mom always told you. I won’t be mad if you tell me the truth.

If only Mom ran the adult world, you could tell people what you really think without the messy confrontation. Tell your neighbor to keep his dogs from pooing on your lawn. Or that girl in yoga that her thong is showing again. Or your ex to give your stuff back.
