rent the runway

But what am I going to wear??

This question has been repeated so many times this year by myself or one of my girlfriends. With all of our friends getting married this year and holiday events coming up before you know it, wouldn't it be nice to look forward to something with out the stress of buying another dress? 

Rent the Runway is a new concept that was introduced to me by Sara Riff. They give users access to high fashion for any of occasion at just 10% of retail cost. All you have to do is browse the designer dresses, pick what you want, put the dress in your shopping cart and specify when you need it to arrive on your doorstep in two different sizes. Some of the designers on the site include: Proenza Schouler, Tracey Reese, Helmut Lang, Giambattista Valli, and so many more.

healthy child healthy world

Healthy World Healthy Child - CHEC Creating Healthy Environments For Children
I have just discovered this website and it is fantastic! Our modern lives are filled with so many toxins in the food we eat, the air we breathe, the ground our children and animals play on. Healthy Child Healthy World is designed to educate parents all over the world and answer questions that they have regarding the safety of their families and homes. The information on this site is all reliable unlike so much of the pollution we encounter when researching online. Healthy Child Healthy World was founded by Nancy and Jim Chuda after they lost there daughter Collette to a form of cancer that was proven to be linked to hazards in the environment. The website is amazing and I encourage you all to add it to your bookmarks. Whether or not you have children this site is a wealth of information and such an amazing resource for all of us.
