Are you frustrated with the lack of professional, part-time work opportunities that allow flexibility so you can also manage your other full-time job being a MOM? If you answered “yes” to any of the above, you must be introduced to FlexWork Connection, a recruiting firm in So Cal promoting flexible work opportunities!  Isn’t that awesome? Jessica Riester, founder of FlexWork Connection (and mompreneur extraordinaire) started her company out of a passion for helping professional mothers like herself find rewarding work and achieve the BALANCE every working mom wants.

Healthy Skin Naturally

see more by

I have to warn you, I am going to sound like an infomercial because of how much I love this skin care line! I have always had problem skin, since I was a teenager.  I thought it would get better in my 20’s and 30’s, but no such luck. In fact, my skin was the worst ever during my pregnancy. Pregnancy glow – yeah right!  I have tried so many products over the last 20 years…both drugstore and fancy-schmancy expensive. Nothing worked  for me. Then I started using this private label called Healthy Skin Naturally that was sold at a place where I get facials in Costa Mesa. I use the Clear-Up Now! products, and let me tell you, I swear by them!  

Here are some descriptions on how some of the products can help us moms challenged by skin care issues:

Clear up during pregnancy and post pregnancy with Healthy Skin Naturally™ ! Pregnancy and post pregnancy can leave the expecting mom with unexpected skin care problems. This is simply one of the side effects of the baby-making factory: the body is using so many of its resources to create life that this flood of hormones can result in the appearance of facial blemishes.

Clear-Up Now! Trio to the rescue: $89  (this is what I use!)

This system of cleanser, toner and repair lotion provides a simple system for clearing the problem.

Prevention Product Recommendations: Oak Cleanser, Clear Up Scrub, Clear Up Mask, Moisture Balance.

Most post pregnancy moms seem to notice these particular ravages: Fine lines around the eyes appear like “crows’ feet” and the face can look drawn and dull. So many of the body’s resources are used for nursing and repair of the former “baby factory” that skin can look tired and lifeless.

Anti-Aging Product Recommendations:

Luxe Citrus Gel Cleanser, Vitamin C Therapy, Ultra Luxe Moisturizer, Stop-the-Clock Moisturizer, Daily Dose, Nutricare Eye Crème or Eye Luxe.

Best Day Planner Ever!

For those of you who have been reading my blog for awhile (THANK YOU), you have already been introduced to my love, Erin Condren, divine goddess of the cutest personalized stationery EVER.

Let me remind you that you can get $20 off any one time order of $100 or more by using the coupon code TINYORANGES upon checkout!  

As if I didn’t already love her personalized note cards, gift labels and holiday cards enough, now I have been introduced to the life planner and I am hooked!   I have the darling turquioise and orange candy lace design.  Just seeing my family name and 2009 together on the cover already make me feel ultra-organized!   I know I am a little old school, but I just can’t get myself to make that Blackberry purchase yet.   There is something appealing about being at the park and not being tempted to check my email!  I already do enough of that at home.   One of these days I will get one, but for now, I love my tangible, real paper, super cute planner!    The process of sitting down and  writing things down (in pen!)  on the calendar pages is satisfying to me.  Is that weird? 


It has an 18-month in advance spread, so you can plan ahead, and then the daily calendar is broken down into 3 boxes: morning / day / night.  I love that, because it’s how I organize my days in my head.    It comes with all kinds of fun goodies…a laminated bookmark with your name on it,  stickers that have things like “birthday! mani/pedi! dr. appt.!  party! shower! ” amongst many others (including blank ones)  you can peel and stick on the calendar days.   There are also “let’s get together” cards for playdates, emergency personalized gift labels (for when you don’t have a card), and an inspiring quote to start each month.  This makes a perfect holiday gift or anytime gift.  Order one for yourself now so you can start your 2009 planning before the crazy holiday season!     

Personal note: Happy, happy birthday to my wonderful mom!  We love you!   Have a super spectacular day and we can’t wait to celebrate tonight!  xoxo

Team OC

My daughter and I take the Busy Bee gymnastics class for 20 – 30 month olds at Team OC in Costa Mesa and we LOVE it!  It is a 45 minute parent participation class, perfect for her age group.  The class is organized into  three 15 minute time frames.   The first 15 minutes start with circle time on the mat followed by fun tumbling obstacle courses.  The second 15 minutes are on the monkey bars and rings.  The last 15 minutes are on the trampolines.   They have a long trampoline runway that leads into a large pool of foam blocks.  It looked so fun I tried it once and jumped in with her!   However, getting out of that “pool”  is a lot harder than you would think!   It ends with a circle time song and stamps. 

The gym is absolutely gorgeous, a complete state-of-the-art facility.  You could almost see Shawn Johnson training there!    For older kids, they have a ton of programs, including summer camps.  Check out the  private birthday party rentals as well.   You can click here for the class schedules.
