Stitch Fix, the personal shopper service that sends a box of clothes to you in the mail, based on your taste and spending preferences, can now support those women who need a little more, er, support. That is, plus sizes have been added to the program. Hooray!
When she was pregnant with her daughter, she became very sick for the first three months and between throwing up and dealing with inconsiderate people, Line decided to start drawing cartoons to make light of the situation.
I spent time navigating the bustling aisles of baby products and services, which ranged from innovative and stylish (nursery decor) to practical (diapers and life insurance).

While I was choosing my organic applesauce at the grocery store, I ran into Superhero Andrea, and she asked me for some good suggestions for what to feed toddlers. In fact, she asked me if I had anything on my blog about it already, which made me think I should write a little something — […]
The woman behind your behind, Sara Blakely, best known for her invention of SPANX, was struck by a creative impulse during her 40th week of pregnancy, which gave birth to The Belly Art Project.
