2009 Christmas Gift Guide Participant

Julie is a full-time mom to four children and Laura is a full time working mom with two children.  Like you, we struggle with many of the same things…no time for ourselves, lack of balance, lots of stress, too many errands and too much to do. We began to share something new; a passion and need to simplify our lives.

From our fast paced, crazy lives, an idea was born. An idea to launch a company dedicated to creating products that solve problems for women in a fun, simple, and creative way. prettySMART! was born.

Azula Rolled Up

The Azula is a flexible, water resistant and fashionably-designed mat that women and girls place at the edge of the swimming pool to keep their bathing suits from snagging while sitting down.

Whether a woman spends $20 or $200 on a bathing suit, she knows it gets snagged when sitting at the edge of the pool. Snagging shortens the life of the suit and looks unattractive. Most women use towels to protect their suits from snagging on the rough cement, however towels get wet and heavy and are bulky. Now there’s the Azula!

Azula can be found at in many different patterns and designs from $5.00 to $14.49.

My Thoughts

Oh my gosh, this product is a life saver, okay it’s not a life saver but it certainly is a bathing suit saver! Living in Florida and having a pool, which I swim in regularly has really taken it’s toll on the bum of my bathing suit. I have been through countless suit bottoms before I was introduced to the wonderful Azula! Now my current bathing suit will last as I sit poolside, dangling my feet in the water. I love this product, and let me tell you I have also used it to sit on bleachers at Sea World and at a baseball game as well as taking along to the park so I don’t have to sit on the dirty picnic table benches and ruin my pants. Genius product and I highly recommend it to everyone! Would make a great stocking stuffer!

  64. Offer a free newsletter, report, e-book or e-zine
    to your customers when they get to your Web site. Also, typographical errors are inexcusable:
    customers are not that forgiving of grammatical errors
    so even if it’s a genuine typographical error on your part,
    customers are unlikely to believe it’s so.
    Keep in mind that I still feel a bit funny referring to myself as an Internet marketer.

  65. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but
    I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
