Hapari {Customer Service Experience}

Ordering from a company online can be a little daunting to some, particularly clothing…and *gasp* swimwear. Will the product fit properly, be flattering, be the colour or pattern indicated in the photo, etc. Even as an avid online shopper, it’s something I tend to be leery about. Another thing I generally hold back on is ordering from a site that doesn’t utilize Paypal. I like having the protection of the *middle man* should something go wrong. How is their Customer…

A couple of months ago I was invited to join the testing panel at Mom Central.

After sending me a small questionnaire she got to work doing preliminary sketches of different ideas. She was especially fantastic because, other than the fancy brackets and knowing…

I’ve never seen them before. I noticed a small spot on my son’s shoulder in the change room but didn’t think too much of it, so we went on our merry way to do some swimming. Unfortunately, the kiddie portion of the pool was shut down just moments after we entered (an issue with no chemicals in the water) so our only real option was the hot tub (the main pool was pretty jam packed from all the kids moved…

{The Whale}

When I read this story recently I knew I had to share it. It just gives me such a good feeling and a deepened sense of hope in people. This just makes me smile and I can’t help but think how incredible it must have been to be fortunate enough to be a part of this amazing rescue. What a beautiful story. If you read a recent front page story of the San Francisco Chronicle, you would have read about…
