get started on twitter.

I’ve been on Twitter for a while now, but I just haven’t been using it to its fullest capacity. I recently learned about Girls Night Out on Twitter or to the expert, #gno. It was started by the two ladies behind Mom It Forward and is the hottest place to be on the internets on a Tuesday night. I honestly…

cheap, stylish baby gear.

Have you seen the new line by Fisher Price at your friendly neighborhood Target? Beloved children’s product giant Fisher Price has teamed up with the coolness of Dwell Studio to launch a limited line of infant gear. In general, the line is better looking than most of the others readily available at common outlets. I haven’t seen it in person yet, but I’m liking it for the following reasons Fisher Price is a brand to be trusted The designs are…
