Say #NOMOREexcuses To Domestic Violence

“One in three women report being a victim of domestic violence; one in five women report being a victim of sexual assault” states the 'NO MORE Study,' conducted by GfK Public Affairs & Corporate Communications.

Jewelry Designer to the Stars: Jane Basch

The right accessories will definitely make your ensemble stand-out from the fashionable crowd; and many of us look to our favorite celebrities for style inspiration. A designer that's taking the jewelry scene by storm is Jane Basch. It was especially fabulous to see one of Jane’s special designs on Entertainment Tonite worn by the beautiful Samantha Harris! Jane’s designs have also been worn by ‘hot’ celebrities such as Christina Applegate, Ashley Tisdale, Demi Moore, Debra Messing and featured in many top fashion magazines such as Lucky! The wonderful aspect to Jane’s jewelry is that you need not be a celebrity to enjoy your very own custom-created Jane Basch jewelry piece because all of her collections are priced well with impeccable craftsmanship (or should I say crafts-womanship).

Travel Essentials: What You Need for Hitting the Road
With the holiday season approaching travel plans are being made to visit our loved ones. Perhaps, you're going on a well-deserved vacation. As women, I think we usually tend to "over-pack" and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't guilty of this at least a few (ahem) - ok, maybe more than a few times during my traveling life. I decided to set out to find the most useful and allowable items that one can bring with them on a trip (it's hard to keep-up, with all of the constantly changing rules and regulations).
Friends For Hire

People are everywhere in Las Vegas. Everywhere. It can be overwhelming. Especially since the majority of these folks are strangers and tourists. There are real obstacles in the way of making a real connection with someone in this city. That's where comes in.

RentAFriend is exactly what it sounds like. It's a website where people can "shop" for "friends" in their area to hang out with. The activity is up to you and your new pal and the hourly rates vary from person to person. You can hire a friend to see a movie with you, go out for ice cream, give personal advice, act as a wingman, pick out presents for your grandchildren, or to even go hiking with. Pretty much anything you could do with a real friend, you can do with your rental.

Celebrity Clothing for a Cause

Gwyneth Paltrow, who recently announced that she is coming out with a clothing line, is designing even more clothes—but this time, it’s for a cause.

The Golden Globe winning actress and fashion icon has created a limited-edition bikini for Lilly Pulitzer’s A Colorful Cause: Celebrity Designer Program. The project celebrates the Palm Beach retailer’s 50th anniversary by raising money for the Epidemolysis Bullosa Medican Research Foundation.

Eight other celebrities have signed on, including Brooke Sheilds, Debra Messing, Marcia Cross, Angie Harmon, Bridget Moynahan, Catherine Bell, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, and Garcelle Beauvais-Nilson. The stars will design limited-edition mommy-and-me clothing for both daughters and sons that will be available for purchase in April.
