9 Ways To Celebrate Your Favorite Friends

SheKnows.com knows how to Celebrate National Girlfriends Day!!



Here are a few of our favorite ideas for spending time with your girlfriends. Make sure to check out SheKnows.com for the complete article.
Beach it. Head to the beach and go for a walk, run or swim -- with sunscreen on, of course. (Beach essentials for stylish chicks)
Go wine tasting. Register for a wine tasting class or go winery hopping at a few local wineries.
Give flowers. Buy flowers and plant them in each other’s gardens or a pot for the house. (How to press those flowers)
Kick back. Grab some magazines (or your favorite book) and read them while hanging out on your patio.
Donate your clothing. Go through your closets, try on each other’s clothes and set aside anything that doesn’t fit (or look good anymore!). Donate the clothing to local organizations that accept used attire.
Prioritize a pedi/mani. Give each other manicures and pedicures or visit the spa or salon together.
Bead. Take a jewelry class and make a piece for your friend, while she makes one for you.
Bucket list. Make a list of the 12 things you’ve never done, but have always wanted to do (before you “kick the bucket”), and promise each other to do at least one thing on each of your lists together every month or so.
Couch marathon. Rent the entire series of Sex in the City and watch it from start to finish (be sure to indulge and order takeout for dinner!).

10 Ways To Make Girlfriends Day Memorable

This Girlfriend’s Day, get together with your girlfriends and make it memorable. 


The Moms at Inspired Gifts LOVE the ideas Girlfriendology came up with for celebrating your favorite friends. (to view the original article, click here)


August 1st is National Girlfriend’s Day, a day for women to reconnect with our female friends, rejuvenate our spirits, and remember why we enjoy each other’s company so much. In celebration of National Girlfriend’s Day, here are 10 idea-starters for planning some time together with the women who know you best and who bring out the best in you:

1. Send cards to all your girlfriends. Handmade or store-bought, postcards or even eCards, get back in touch with your gal pals past and present. Include copies of pictures of the two of you in them, or make cards with your photos. Remember to include a handwritten note thanking them for the gift of their friendship. You know they’ll save that card forever!


2. Plan a night out for you and the gals! Happy hour, chick flick, picnic in the park or a nearby free concert, make it a memorable evening for friends to laugh, relax and enjoy some qauality time together. Don’t forget a camera to capture all the fun!


3. You make the call! Remember your BFF from 7th grade? Google her name or search for her on Facebook, Myspace, or Linkedin. Call her up and catch up on your lives. Some things don’t change – like how fun it is to gab with a girlfriend and share lots of laughs!


4. Stretch yourselves. No, we’re not talking yoga. Make it a really memorable day or evening of things you’ve never done before. Go-cart riding, batting cages, paintball or skydiving – get a tattoo – (maybe the temporary kind) – any activity that’s new to you and your girlfriends. That will make for a great memory and “remember when” conversation for years to come!


5. Let’s get outta here! Plan a Girlfriend Getaway with your best friend – or friends! You don’t have to go crazy – like gas prices. You can even ‘getaway’ right in your own town. Be a “staycation” tourist and visit museums, neighborhoods and stores that are new to you. Have a slumber party with your girlfriends – watch silly movies, do your toenails and don’t forget the fun pajamas and snacks!


6. Take a class together. Knitting is hotter than ever and is a great girlfriend activity. Knot into the knitting thing? Try a gourmet cooking course, wine tasting, French lessons or pottery classes. Learning is much more fun together and who better to laugh and pass notes with in a class than your girlfriends?


7. Have an extreme make-over with your favorite females! Body or building, together you can make some great changes. Body-wise – go together to a salon and have a complete hair and make-up make-over. Then hit the mall for an appointment with a personal shopper to get a whole new look. Or, let your girlfriend select a room in her home that needs new d├ęcor. Hit the home improvement store for paint, shop for new home accessories and create a new environment. Both are wonderful ways to bond over hair or paint colors!


8. Make it HER special day. Surprise! It’s ‘JILL’ Day! (Or whatever her name!) It doesn’t have to be a birthday or National Girlfriend Day to make her feel as special as her friendship is to you. Plan a day that is all about her – do her favorite things, make a meal of her favorite foods, create signs, cards and balloons for Happy her Day! And always have that camera ready for fun photos of you and your favorite gal pal.


9. BFF’s! Capture all your memories in a mini-scrapbook with photos of the two of you. Add quotes and images of things she likes. Journal about the things you admire or love about her. Make it a 4 EVR reminder of your forever friendship!


10. Start a new tradition! Don’t just make it a one time celebration – gather your girlfriends and start a book club, mommies’ group or gourmet girlfriends’ group. Find friends who have common interests and get them all together to decide the guidelines. Then stick with a schedule and have a fun year celebrating your friendships together! August 1st or any day of the year, take time to celebrate your female friendships. They’re the special people who make life more fun. Show your girlfriend gratitude throughout the year and make memories that will last a lifetime.


GIRLFRIENDS ONLY! PHOTO CONTEST: Be sure to enter your favorite photo of your gal pals in this week’s Girlfriends Only! Photo Contest. Winner will receive an Inspired Gift’s EarthTru Photo Printing Package and entered to win an Inspired Gift’s Back To School Essentials Package.

Father's Day Poem

A Father Is...

A Father is a guiding light, 
always shinning in the darkness to show you the way.

A Father is a protector; 
he shields you from harm and keeps you safe.

A Father is a mentor;
he is there to encourage, support and inspire your life.

A Father is tender. 
He loves with kindness, compassion and strength.

A Father is a friend. 
He wants to be apart of your world.

A Father is an artist; 
he shows you how to create beauty in the world.

A Father is a teacher; 
he inspires you to be your best.

A Father is your constant. 
He is always there for you, unmoving and timeless.

A Father is joy, 
he relishes in everything you do.

A Father is love, 
immeasurable, endless love….

Inspiring Momtreprenuers

Meet The the Mom at Petit Couture 

Inspired Gifts is a mom-owned business with a unique twist! We are three Moms spanning the globe from Singapore, Hawaii to Florida. All of our close family & friends live an ocean away, which lead to the creation of our Inspirational Photo Books & Gifts collection for family, friends, children and babies.


The Moms at Inspired Gifts want to show our support to other Momtreprenuers by spreading the word about their businesses. This week we are thrilled to introduce you to the Mom behind Petit Couture, 
Rebecca Kaykas-Wolff.


We chatted with Rebecca a bit to get to know her business, inspiration and advice she has for other Moms looking to start their own business. Here’s how our conversation went (follow the Q & A):


Q: What is the Story and Inspiration behind Petit Couture?
A: Petit Couture was conceived when I realized that very few modern layette and playwear basics existed that were both fashionable and socially-minded. In discussing these limitations with other parents, I became further convinced that Petit Couture could be a stand-out addition to the socially-minded segment of the children’s apparel market. Petit Couture was born in 2009 and debuted its inaugural line of Signature Collection infant layette and toddler play wear basics which proudly display the signature ‘owl’ on premium quality interlock and cotton blends in a sophisticated neutral palette. The line is sold in high end boutique and retail environments across the US.


Petit Couture is a classic yet modern, artisan luxury basics collection for fashionable offspring. Petit Couture’s Signature Collection is sourced and made lovingly in the USA. Petit Couture’s Ready-To-Wear collection debuts in Summer 2010 and fuses wearable modern dresses, tunics, sweater-knits, skirts and leggings with the Signature Collection to make a stand-out brand that girls and moms will love.


Q: What Products does Petit Couture offer?
A: Petit Couture is a modern apparel collection for infants and toddlers.
The Signature Collection, out now, features our logo apparel playwear and layette pieces. This month,  our fashion "Ready-to-Wear" collection will debut during LA Kids Market and features girls fashion skirts, dresses, tunics, travel sweaterknits, and leggings which all pair beautifully with our Signature Collection pieces. I'm thrilled to be debuting in LA and then will also be at ENK Children's Club in August.


Q: What is the best part about owning a business?
A:  I'm in control of my own destiny and it is incredibly fulfilling to be able to see my own creative and business vision come to fruition. 


Advice: Everything takes twice as long and costs twice as much. I love what I'm doing with Petit Couture and in order to be successful that love for your business vision needs to sustain you for some time until your product (or service) gains momentum.
