Mothers day is around the corner and if you are like me you like to support “mommy” owned companies. I mean after all, we raise our kids, run successful businesses and still make it home in time to cook dinner(My husband can’t even talk on the phone and drive). I thought it would be a great time to tell you about some great companies that were started by women after they had children.
Lets GLAM it up…SlamGlam.com was started by Ivy Ackerman a stay at home mom and great tennis player a few years ago when she couldn’t find anything special to carry her tennis gear in. Because Ivy plays tennis she knows just what the mommy athlete needs. There are amazing items for tennis, golf and yoga too! It makes me wanna start playing tennis…yeah right. Not into any of those sports then just click on the “travel and lifestyle section” where she has great totes for every day. Most things can be monogrammed to give them that personal touch. www.slamglam.com
