Specially designed for working moms (is there any other kind?), though just as useful for any busy woman, these notepads bring order and balance to the juggling act of modern motherhood. The Eat Sheet has space for a weekly Menu Planner on one side and your grocery list on the other while the Balance Sheet keeps your Work To Do list and Your Home To Do list all on the same page. Life suddenly seems a lot less chaotic.
We are loving this dress that doubles as a beach cover up or a tunic to wear with slim white jeans. The lightweight fabric is slightly wrinkled - perfect for rolling up in your overnight bag. Definitely worth stocking up in several colors.
