I'll take this opportunity to promote Get Togetha a home decor and lifestyle company/blog who's main focus is all things home. Cause black women care about home too! We were set to retail a conversation product for home entertaining this fall but we had a setback cause printing costs are high. But alas...a delay is not a denial....Till we launch, we will post daily content on all things home and spirit. It is our passion. We have been received well....we offer giveaways and discounts on home products, cook books and more... Thanks for the opportunity Bella! GT

Hi. Just wanted to mention, I am a new business owner. I've started offering my items geared towards nursing and non-nursing mothers and their babies on my blog. Shipping is included in all my prices. God Bless.

Hiya! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share. Thank you! louis vuitton taschen
