Finding a unique yet stylish camera case can be sometimes daunting. When I first invested in a good camera, I felt pressure to use the case that so generously came with the camera, but I hated it. I’m never a fan of lugging around the typical black bag. Happy Sew Lucky has created the perfect solution for us. The Retrotastic camera camera bag pattern creates this iconic design inspired by the Diana camera sold in the 60’s. And because it is a pattern, you are saving dollars and creating a fantastic product with your own hands. One fat quarter...Read More

We love how tech isn’t just for speaker-geek guys any more. It’s smarter, it’s inspired by nature, and it solves some of a mama’s most basic problems in a chic way. If you haven’t been visiting Cool Mom Tech lately, here are some of this week’s coolest, problem-solving picks. 1. Splash. Your digital camera is dead! …or is it? 2.

We love this great looking–and cheap!–way to keep those pesky cords organized. 4. This week we...Read More

I love small things. I do. Crazy about little things. So when HP offered up the new HP Mini 210 and the utterly adorable HP V5040u Camcorder to review, we leaped at the chance to see if they were as fabulous as they looked. The answer: Yes! The purse-sized HP Mini 210 is drool-worthy in colors including Preppy Pink and Pacific Blue. This is the perfect PC for moms on the go like me, small enough that you can pop it into an average sized purse or even your diaper bag. (Just keep away from leaky sippy cups!) It...Read More
If you’re still scrounging for a cool graduation gift for the high school/college set, the new line of graduation themed Class of 2010 Flip Cams are so clever. The Year of the Tiger skin would have been awesome back when I graduated high school (go MHS Tigers!) but I think my favorite is El Diablo Graduated, shown here. But definitely look beyond the grad category, for designs that pack the conceptual punch you’re looking for, like a simply happy face emoticon. They start at $199 like all Flip Cams. The advice from you to be careful uploading drunken post-grad...Read More
