Tune in to You

Probably the hardest part about being a career gal is balancing work, family, friends and time for yourself. Many of us actually put ourselves on the backburner as we tend to all the other demands in our lives. It’s easy to get lost and forget about who we are at the core, which is why Spirit Junkie: A Radical Road to Self-Love and Miracles by Gabrielle Bernstein caught our attention. In the book, Bernstein openly shares her journey from being an NYC party-hard PR girl with a drug addiction to shedding the vices and learning to genuinely love herself—all while providing practical advice on how to create self-love in your life. She is now a widely sought motivational speaker and spiritual guide, and has been featured in ELLE, The New York Times, Huffington Post and more. Spirit Junkie is just the self-love-fest we so rightly need and deserve.

Germs Be Gone

We admit it—we can be real germaphobes when it comes to taking our kids to public places, and having them sit in a grocery cart while we do our shopping is no exception. For trips to the supermarket, we take along the handy Bright Starts Comfort & Harmony Cozy Cart Cover. Made of plush, padded fabrics to keep baby comfy, the cover protects from shopping cart germs and is designed with three storage pockets and sewn-in loops for attaching toys. Also great for using at restaurants on a high chair, we can now be a little less wary of junior picking up unwanted germs.

10 Tips for Writing a Novel

Is 2012 the year you'll be writing your first novel? In Want to write that book? Read on (originally published in The Globe and Mail), Russell Smith eschews 10 pieces of wisdom for aspiring fiction writers. We especially like Smith's first rule, which is "Don’t get distracted by 'process.' It doesn't matter when you write, morning or evening. It doesn't matter if you have a regular schedule or write once a month. It doesn't matter if you use a pen or certain software. The only thing that matters is what comes out."
