Kid and Family Friendly Travel with Kid & Coe!

When you are a family with small children, I understand that traveling with your small children can be challenging from airport navigation to living arrangements!  I seriously don't understand how some families do it but hopefully this post will make your life a tad bit easier!

I recently discovered the amazing world of Kid&Coe...think VRBO (vacation rental by owner) but for families with small children who needs to know where there are rentals that can accommodate a family including cribs, etc.

Kid&Coe is a vacation rental website that simplifies modern family travel. 

How do they do this? Kid&Coe provides a carefully selected list of kid-friendly residences combined with curated insider guides.  From child care essentials to coveted neighborhood locations, they offer everything you need to make a home away from home for the whole family!

Ivanka Trump (from her Facebook page) says about Kid&Coe:  "It's no secret we love to travel-and we're always looking for the lateste and greatest when it comes to bringing the little ones....if you're not going the hotel route, we've found a new site to troll."

Kid&Coe is like VRBO with the minis in mind: think a family-friendly cottage on the Cape or an apartment in Barcelona, equipped with stroller, crib and play things aplenty.  Vacationing as a family has never been easier (or more fun!).

The Kid&Coe model is based on a three-pronged approach of:

  1. Stress free family vacations
  2. Local secrets unlocked
  3. All the comforts of home

I also saw where they have destinations all over the world!  From the United States (several states with 10 cities in California alone) to Greece to The Bahamas to Tuscany and Paris!  There is no shortage of options for you and your family.

I also found there site to be well-curated, amazing pictures and for your safety, all transactions for the rentals are done through the site by setting up a quick profile.  I love that part!

Happy booking and let us know how you like Kid&Coe!

Women Entrepreneurs: Get Funded with Tory Burch and Bank of America!

Women entrepreneurs are taking the world by storm!  

Reports show that:
  • The number of women-owned firms increased by 54% between 1997 and 2012 - that's a rate 1 1/2 times the national average (Source: The New York Times (January 2013))
  • 65% of business owners are women (Source: National Entrepreneurial Attitudes Study (2013))
  • Women will control two-thirds of the consumer wealth in the U.S. over the next decade and be the beneficiaries of the largest transference of wealth in our country's history. (Source: Mediapost (2013))
  • Women control over $20 Trillion in world-wide spending.  (Source: Muhtar Kent, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, The Coca-Cola Company, October 2010)

Tory Burch
I was then glad to hear that billionaire fashion designer Tory Burch, through the Tory Burch Foundation, has partnered with Bank of America to accomplish the mission of Elizabeth Street Capital.

This is a program that offers novice female entrepreneurs in the United States an opportunity to gain access to funding, mentorship, and professional networking opportunities.
Bank of America and the Tory Burch Foundation supplied $10 million in affordable loans to Community Development Financial Institutions in Boston; Charlotte, N.C.; Dallas; Las Vegas, New Jersey; New York; Philadelphia; and San Francisco. The money will go toward assisting women who are in the early stages of starting a business.
If you don’t live within one of the above markets, don’t lose heart. Elizabeth Street Capital has plans to branch out to additional markets over the next two years!
Have questions and want to apply? Go to here for more information.
I really believe Tory Burch is an example of what happens in business and in our communities when there is a successful woman who chooses to use her power and influence to make an impact and give back.  Bravo!

Top Core Beliefs of Incredibly Successful People (Jeff Haden)

I ran into this excerpt by Ivanka Trump while perusing social media and we wanted to share it with you.  Why do I love it? Because it is sharing wisdom from the stand point of core beliefs.  In my opinion, there can never be true success, inspiration, wholeness and authenticity without some type of strong core belief driving it.

Happy National Lipstick Day 2014!

Pic Credit Hannah Bronfman (Get Her Lipstick Jouer Here)
Did you know today (July 29th) is National Lipstick Day?

How did this day get started?  Here's a little history:  Lipstick was most likely invented by ancient Mesopotamian women who crushed jewels to decorate their lips. Cleopatra’s lipstick was made from crushed carmine beetles, while shinier lipsticks were made with a substance extracted from fish scales. When lipstick first reached England and the Americas it was considered a garish cosmetic only worn by prostitutes and loose women (What???...I didn't know that!). In fact, in 1770 a law was proposed to the British Parliament that annulled a marriage if the bride had worn cosmetics before her wedding day! 

By the late 1880s a perfumer in Paris had created the first commercial lipstick. Made from deer tallow, castor oil, and beeswax, it was sold in silk paper. But by 1912 lipstick was finally considered acceptable for the average American woman, and a decade later flappers popularized dark red lipstick as a symbol of their independence.

Today’s lipsticks are made from a mixture of wax, oils, emollients, and antioxidants, with most U.S manufactured brands adding pig fat or castor oil to give the “lip rouge” it’s signature shine.  Lipstick is considered the most basic of the holy trinity of makeup: Lipstick, Mascara and Bronzer/Powder.

Do you want some creative ideas to update your lipstick shade?

Here are my picks:
  • One of our favorite brands is by YSL (currently having a gift with purchase)...the shades are long wearing and gorgeous for all skin shades!
  • I love Jouer like Hannah because their lipsticks have a "smooth, soft finish and powerful moisturizing properties of Brazil's Cupuaçu Butter, which hydrates for beauty and gives lips a treatment."
  • Motives moisture rich lipstick has great colors for women of color (Hispanic and African American)
  • There is the bestselling MAC lipstick Russian Red (limited stock); you can also find it here or one of their limited edition colors by Proenza Schouler.
  • If you want a more designer, dramatic and sleek look, Marc Jacobs Beauty has some amazing shades
So pucker up and celebrate National Lipstick Day!

Are You Creating Roadblocks to Your Happiness?

If you believed that the world really was about people's Facebook posts of 24/7 happiness or their Monday morning work recaps of amazing weekends with no mishaps, rest and family'd think you were an alien for having argument with your husband, having the teenager who sneaked out of the house while you waited up until 4am until they returned, gaining 15 pounds in 6 months (WTH??) or any other life mishap that wasn't worthy of a reality show!  

I'm here to tell you, real life is not a glossy magazine spread!  Happiness is derived internally with a spirit of gratefulness, thankfulness and  overall constant reminder that where you are is where you are.  However, we all do things that create roadblocks to getting to a place of internal happiness...

So when we bumped into a great post by Tim Hoch on "10 Roadblocks to Happiness", we were super intrigued!  How could a trial lawyer, strategist and consultant so perfectly describe what we were thinking!

Here's a copy of his post and you can read more about Tim and his great wisdom here:

  1. You ascribe intent. 
Another driver cut you off. Your friend never texted you back. Your co-worker went to lunch without you. Everyone can find a reason to be offended on a steady basis. So what caused you to be offended? You assigned bad intent to these otherwise innocuous actions. You took it as a personal affront, a slap in the face. 
Happy people do not do this. They don’t take things personally. They don’t ascribe intent to the unintentional actions of others. 
  1. You’re the star of your own movie
It is little wonder that you believe the world revolves around you. After all, you have been at the very center of every experience you have ever had. 
You are the star of your own movie. You wrote the script. You know how you want it to unfold. You even know how you want it to end. 
Unfortunately you forgot to give your script to anyone else. As a result, people are unaware of the role they are supposed to play. Then, when they screw up their lines, or fail to fall in love with you or don’t give you a promotion, your movie is ruined. 
Lose your script. Let someone else star once in awhile. Welcome new characters. Embrace plot twists. 
  1. You fast forward to apocalypse
I have a bad habit of fast forwarding everything to its worst possible outcome and being pleasantly surprised when the result is marginally better than utter disaster or jail time. My mind unnecessarily wrestles with events that aren’t even remotely likely. My sore throat is cancer. My lost driver’s license fell into the hands of an al-Qaeda operative who will wipe out my savings account. 
Negativity only breeds more negativity. It is a happiness riptide. It will carry you away from shore and if you don’t swim away from it, will pull you under. 
  1. You have unrealistic and/or uncommunicated expectations
Among their many shortcomings of your family and friends is the harsh reality that they cannot read your mind or anticipate your whims. 
Did your boyfriend forget the six and a half month anniversary of your first movie date? Did your girlfriend refuse to call at an appointed hour? Did your friend fail to fawn over your tribal tattoo? 
Unmet expectations will be at the root of most of your unhappiness in life. Minimize your expectations, maximize your joy. 
  1. You are waiting for a sign.
I have a friend who won’t make a decision without receiving a “sign.” I suppose she is waiting on a trumpeted announcement from God. She is constantly paralyzed by a divinity that is either heavily obscured or frustratingly tardy. I’m not disavowing that fate or a higher power plays a role in our lives. I’m just saying that it is better to help shape fate than be governed by it.
  1. You don’t take risks. 
Two words: Live boldly. Every single time you are offered a choice that involves greater risk, take it. You will lose on many of them but when you add them up at the end of your life you’ll be glad you did. 
  1. You constantly compare your life to others. 
A few years ago I was invited to a nice party at a big warehouse downtown. I was enjoying the smooth jazz, box wine and crustless sandwiches. What more could a guy want? Later in the evening I noticed a steady parade of well-heeled people slide past and disappear into another room. I peeked and saw a large party with beautiful revelers dancing and carrying on like Bacchus. Suddenly my gig wasn’t as fun as it had been all because it didn’t appear to measure up to the party next door- a party I didn’t even know existed until just moments before. 
I do this frequently. Those people are having more fun. Mary has a bigger boat. Craig gets all the lucky breaks. Ted has more money. John is better looking. 
Stop it. 
Always remember what Teddy Roosevelt said: “Comparison is the thief of joy.” 
  1. You let other people steal from you
If you had a million dollars in cash under your mattress, you would check it regularly and take precautions to insure it is safe. The one possession you have that is more important than money is time. But you don’t do anything to protect it. In fact you willingly give it to thieves. Selfish people, egotistical people, negative people, people who won’t shut up. Treat your time like Fort Knox. Guard it closely and give it only to those who deserve and respect it. 
  1. You can’t/won’t let go
These are getting a little harder aren’t they? That’s because sometimes you have to work at happiness. Some hurdles are too difficult to clear by simply adjusting your point of view or adopting a positive mindset. 
Do you need to forgive someone? Do you need to turn your back on a failed relationship? Do you need to come to terms with the death of a loved one? 
Life is full of loss. But, in a sense, real happiness would not be possible without it.  It helps us appreciate and savor the things that really matter. It helps us grow. It can help us help others grow. 
Closure is a word for people who have never really suffered. There’s no such thing. Just try to “manage” your loss. Put it in perspective. You will always have some regret and doubt about your loss. You may always second guess yourself. If only you had said this, or tried that. 
You’re not alone. Find someone who understands and talk to that person. Reach out for support. If all else fails, try #10 below. 
10. You don’t give back.
One way to deal with loss is to immerse yourself in doing good. Volunteer. Get involved in life.
It doesn't even have to be a big, structured thing. Say a kind word. Encourage someone. Pay a visit to someone who is alone. Get away from your self-absorption.
Tim & His 10-year Mentee from CASA Program
When it comes down to it, there are two types of people in this world. There are givers and there are takers. Givers are happy. Takers are miserable. What are you?
Aren't these great!  Next time you catch yourself doing any of these, go back to Tim's list and re-frame how you are perceiving a situation and look at it differently...your happiness is dependent upon it!
We'd also recommend reading Tim's "12 Ways You Sabotage Your Future" is a great read!

Glamping: Your Next Unique (and Authentic) Travel Experience

Glampling...I was surprised when I (@qswerve) received a new follower alert on Instagram with a name like Glamping (@glampingdotcom).  I was curious and clicked on the site...WOW!

See Website Here
I must have been living under a rock because every year when it rolls around to August I start getting nervous of whether my sister will make me go camping with the family in H-O-T Texas!  But the Glampling site was nothing like my past family camping experiences of staying on a patch-of-dirt lake site with thin tents, hard ground in sleeping bags and bugs for days...Glamping looked cool!

What is Glamping?

According to the official site for anyone who wants to go Glamping, Glamping is: A global trend has caught fire that offers outdoor enthusiasts an upgrade on rest and recreation. It’s called glamping, a new word for a new kind of travel, defined as glamorous camping. When you’re glamping, there’s no tent to pitch, no sleeping bag to unroll, no fire to build. Whether in a tent, yurt, airstream, hut, villa or treehouse, glamping is a way to experience the great outdoors without sacrificing luxury.

See Website Here
Glamping – a fusion of glamour and camping – emerged international and came across the Atlantic over the last decade. Both independent properties and global hospitality brands have capitalized on a jettisoning demand for travelers who want to experience the positive aspects of camping without the “uncomfortable” negatives. Glamping pivots on a high level of service that focuses on the complete comfort of the guests. The amenities found at glamping destinations far exceed anything recreational campers experience.

See Website Here (Our #1 Pick)
What we love the most is that the site has a strict set of standards and only highlights properties who have received a minimum four star rating on TripAdvisor.  The site gives you Glamping options in North America (including Canada), South/Central America, United Kingdom, Africa, Europe (including Italy, Spain and France), Oceania (including Australia, Fiji and New Zealand), Asia and the Middle East (Jordan, Israel)!

Other highlights include how you can go Glamping on a budget called Value Glamping! Our favorite value destinations were in the Dominican Republic (starts at only $80/night), the Elqui Domos in Chile (which has a pool and showers and starts at ($125/night) and the Yellowstone in Montana (starts at only $99/night)!  Although they have a limited selection of value options, they are adding new properties that meet their standards monthly.

You can also choose your Glamping destination based on your living choice: Glamping tent, Glamping Villas & Huts, Glamping Eco & Safari Lodges, Glamping Treeshouses, Glamping Cabineering and so much more!

This Value Glamp Starts at Only $99/night!
With consumers continually looking for ways to maintain their household budgets but also not wanting to give up on their family and friends having a unique experience, I don't think Glamping is going away anytime soon!  The property options that were not listed under their Value Camping section started at about $179/night USD and can go as high as $600/ all depends on the type of unique experience you want to have! The great thing is that each Glamping site can sleep multiple people so compared to most hotel rooms with minimal nature views and limited capacity, you could still end up saving lots of money going Glamping!
Gather your friends, gather your family, gather your co-workers and tell them you all are going to experience something unique, fun and definitely not the now un-cool way of camping in years past...this is the 2014 version with a glamorous twist!

THE Video Inspiring Women to Challenge Beauty Ideals

If you have not heard by now, let us be the first to tell you:  The new music video "Try" by Colbie Caillat has went viral and as of the writing of this post, has received over 6.6 million views on YouTube!

Why are people flocking to see this video?  Because they are inspired by the reason Caillat created the video: she was tired of being airbrushed and wanted to empower women to feel free to "take off the makeup, let down their hair, take a breath, take a look in the mirror at yourself...don't you like you??? Cause I like you!" (song lyrics).

She said the hardest part about being a woman in today's society was feeling pressured to live up to others' expectations.
The song is from Caillat's new album, "Gypsy Heart." In an interview that appeared on Elle magazine's website on July 10, Caillat said she went into the recording studio with producer Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds and explained to him she was tired of being pressured by others to look like someone she was not. He encouraged her to put those feelings to music.
"I don't have Photoshop on my album cover," she said in the interview. "At the video shoots, I'm doing less hair and makeup. For the 'Try' video I didn't prep or starve myself and over-exercise. And then I didn't get my nails done, I didn't get my hair done. I didn't get a facial. I didn't have a stylist."
"When you have a cute outfit on and your makeup looks amazing, the first thing people comment on is your image. When you don't wear makeup, you hear things like, 'Oh wow, you look tired or you're so brave for not wearing makeup!'" she said.
The video appears to have struck a chord with viewers. One viewer on YouTube wrote: "Flawlessly beautiful. Inspiring in every way! And, no she is not saying 'You can't wear make-up!' She's saying simply be you. That if you do wear make-up, wear it because you want to not because you feel like you have to. That being said, all you ladies and gentlemen that do wear make-up... Just know that you are just as gorgeous without it :)"
This video is exactly what I strive for no matter what we post for Curva-Lish!  In our world of continued (un-achievable) standards for beauty, being a mom, being a friend, being a volunteer, being superwoman in the workplace while also being the "perfect" wife and juggling all of your responsibilities perfectly...none of that matters if you lose your authentic self in the process.  I couldn't find anywhere else on the web where I could seek out inspiration to be authentically me as I age and evolve!

Don't get me wrong...I looove makeup, being stylish, being the best sister I can be, being the best friend I can be, etc, etc....but keep it all in perspective. Whatever you do, whether that's to be healthy, have glowing hair, buy the most fashionable in-season items you can afford, etc...just be YOU!

One Speech, Two Life Examples: Ripple Effect Impacting Thousands

I just got off of the phone with a lady named Dottie and to my surprise, she shared how she was one of the people who had the pleasure of being in the audience in 1963 for Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech during the March on Washington.  What was amazing about her sharing this tidbit of her life story is that she is the second person in my life who not only attended the speech on that amazing day full of hope and inspiration that our nation can come together but who was also so impacted by it's honesty and authenticity that it caused them to take a specific action as they returned back to their homes.

I feel blessed to know about these two people and the actions they took that I wanted to share it with you all in hopes of reinforcing that one life can have a ripple effect that impacts many lives.

Father Frank Carr
Inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s landmark "I Have a Dream" speech, Frank quit his executive-level corporate day job and committed to taking swift and decisive action to increase ethnically diverse employees in corporate management in the U.S., and to help change the way these candidates gained entry into the business world.
Moonlighting evenings as a computer tape disk operator, Frank spent his days creating INROADS by calling in favors from his former corporate colleagues and setting out to cultivate new partnerships. The INROADS mission that Frank advanced was — to develop and place talented women and minority youth in business and industry and prepare them for corporate and community leadership.
Frank launched INROADS in his hometown of Chicago with just 25 college student Interns and 17 sponsoring corporations. Today, INROADS is an international organization with over 20 offices serving nearly 1,500 Interns at over 100 Fortune 500 companies.
Today, there are over 26,000 alumni globally and I am one of them!  Just think, one man, took one action and it created an impact that is even greater than what most colleges and universities with 100 year histories can attest to!

Dottie Gandy
One of my new friends is Dottie who I met via a network of inspirational women on LinkedIn.  As we were connecting on the phone, she mentioned that she attended the March on Washington.  When she returned home, she realized that there weren't many opportunities in civic organizations back in 1974 that allowed female membership other than the junior level meant for wives of the husband members.  That's when Dottie and a group of other women decided to create an organization for women in business called the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO)!  NAWBO incorporated in 1975 but recently celebrated its 40th Anniversary! Today the group has over 80 chapters and 7,000+ members!

Dottie's goal was to retire but as she says, she decided to "re-wire" instead since she found retirement boring! Ha!  She was recently asked to be the Dallas representative for the Mentoring Women's Network whose mission is to help women achieve their goals through mentoring relationships. They fulfill this mission by offering training and mentoring to advance women leaders...bravo!
I felt compelled to write this post because I think it is easy to be so focused on the small thing you are doing to try to make a difference but these two amazing people are a true testament that one action performed by one person can create a ripple effect that goes beyond anything they ever thought they'd achieve in their lifetimes!
So go out, do something for someone else who can never repay you and just be content knowing that even if your actions impact one life, it is worth it!  I'm so glad to say my  life has been impacted by the brave actions of these two people.

Curva-Lish Recommends: Refreshing Drinks for Hot Weather

No matter where you live, this is the time of year where everyone is scrambling for something refreshing to drink!  Whether it is for a day by the pool, a summer cocktail with friends or a change to your morning coffee routine.  We have tracked down three great options that are easy (minimal ingredients) and something you can create in a few minutes!

Cinnamon Vanilla Coffee
This iced coffee drink is a great way to get your morning coffee but also to jazz it up.  Iced coffee made at home does not have to be boring and you don't necessarily have to purchase it from Starbucks.

- Make your normal hot coffee of choice.  For the smoothest taste for iced coffees, I love !
- Fill up a container with ice and pour hot coffee over it
- In a separate Ball mason jar, fill with ice and pour cold coffee from container into glass of ice
- Get some heavy cream (1-2 tablespoons) and drizzle over iced coffee
- Add a teaspoon of vanilla and sprinkle cinnamon on top (can also add caramel)

Our next refreshing drink recipe is great for summer cocktail parties!
Summer Cocktail Refresher (Ingredients)

-  In a pitcher, start with peach puree; squeeze in lime juice (do no add leftover lime to drink)
-  Take champagne flutes and add a slice of peach to the bottom
-  Pour Prosecco about half way and then add ingredients from pitcher into champagne flute too

Our last summer drink was inspired by an Instagram picture I saw from Tia Mowry.  She grows her own mint and other herbs and if you add a few slices of fresh fruit, it is a perfect summer cool down treat!  I made some additives to make sure it is cold for you and your poolside guests.

Photo Credit: Tia Mowry on Instagram

- Slice one lime and one orange and freeze them over night in a plastic ziploc bag
- Pick some fresh mint from your garden or get some from your local Farmer's Market
- Smash the mint using the back of a spoon in a bowl so that you can release the mint flavor from the leaves
- Fill a pitcher with cold filtered water and add the mint from the bowl; stir so mint infuses with water
- Add the frozen lime and orange slices

Tia served with a plate of fruit (see above) and in chalk-board mason glasses that we tracked down that you can get here.

I hope this helps you kick-off your summer fun!
