Me Likey (Are You Reading This Richmond Mommies?)

Hey Richmond Moms!

If you're in the Richmond area, check out some resources I've had the good fortune to stumble upon. You might even score for Mother's Day!!!

RichmondMom.Com
If you haven't been, go directly to this site. RichmondMom.com is an amazing site and excellent resource for all you local moms. Full of great articles, events and promotions, it's designed to be the ultimate resource for moms in our area.

Kate Hall, the creator, is a dynamic mom of 3 who was inspired by her children and her needs as a mom to create a resource for the rest of us. I had the good fortune of meeting her recently and she's sweet, smart and totally together. She's constantly building the site to include more and more resources that are important to moms, including great shopping deals! Yay!

Check it out soon, and often. And be sure to sign up for the Savvy Saver card for exclusive discounts to local retailers. For us recessionistas, sale is NOT a four-letter word!





Another gem you must discover for yourself RIGHT AWAY. Local aesthetician Peggy Cummings has developed a little enclave in the heart of Westhampton. It's an undiscovered jewel, a preppy-zen retreat, a little slice of heaven. And I bet you didn't even know it was there! Yes, right there at the crossroads of Libbie and Monument. If you've ever met Peggy, you know she has the best skin ever. And you know that skincare and makeup is her passion. She offers a full array of services (find her full line here). And be sure to check out her specials. If my skin would look like hers, I'd go every day!

Rosemary's Photography
Another local gem is Rosemary's Photography. She has a small studio in her home in the west end, and she does on-site work as well. Check out her galleries. Love this.


And this is one of my all-time favorites. She got this shot of my daughter at a 4th of July party. She's super creative, and she's super reasonable (and that's always a good thing).

Ask for Rosemary, and tell them Jennifer G. sent ya!
