To her surprise not many existed that fit correctly or were made of material that was comfy cozy.. So in 2005 her creativity started to bloom. She created a cotton hat line that she took and showed local boutiques,friends and family.

Banglz Easy ,Everyday Excercise

Founders: Kim Koelle and Annie Ulichney who I met at the Gift show (She has the most amazing body) . OH MY! These two are busy moms. They designed their company because of the craziness we all go thru on a day to day basis when a workout just can't fit into the schedule. This is why Banglz was created . They are comfy and stylish wrist and ankle weighted bands.. You wear them like you would your favorite watch or bracelet. They are the perfect accessory to build strength inside and out. The best thing about these are, you can wear as everyday accessories or use as an added bonus to your workout. Banglz comes in a choice of many different colors and prints.. Great for any outfit. I have to tell you I wore these all around the NY Gift show. My calves were feeling it. I only wore the ones for my ankles. I had so many heavy bags I couldn't add more weight to my upper body. I was wearing them while typing this post but it clearly states not to wear for a long period while on the computer. This product inspired me to get more active. Being a mother I have always put myself last. Well GIRLFRIENDS that time is over. I am ready for a change.. To jump start a routine again.. Can't wait. I was amazed by how many women stopped me at the Gift show to ask what I had on my ankles.. I wished I made commission LOL That is how I really talked up their product. I love them...
OH I almost forgot. You have to also check out their smart slips and skirts..The SMARTSLIP is the exercise superslip that works you out and has an ultra-slim fit all at once! The resistance in this amazing fabric targets the hips, glutes and legs while you walk and move during the day, giving you a lower body workout with each step. LOVE IT!

Bungalow home of SCOUT! Weekender Bag! CLOSED

Bungalow:Imagine a little irreverent that holds your life's experience's all adding up to the collage of who you are- It's all a Bungalow. What I learned about this company is it is full of life and fun. Scout is the mascot and is very furry and cute.

Founded in 2004 by Deb and Ben Johns after realizing there was a lack of tote bags..Dean-O Tote was created. The company has now grown from not just having one style tote , to an entire collection from weekenders to Coolers even really cool flooring (micro fiber,coconut fiber and more) check them all out on their new web site great place to explore and shop.

Bungalow has a serious side and one that I love. They host and annual themed party to raise money for families who have children with cancer.

They also hosted a Bra party to raise funds for breast cancer.. I love it.. Fabulous!

I love it when a company gives back. What's great is not only Can you shop on the site but when you see their products at a store pick up one of their totes or accessories. You know some of the money you spent will go to help a good cause. So check out BUNGALOW.. Read Debs Bio she's amazing with all her accomplishments. This company is so popular it has been in O Magazine,Country Living,Coastal Living,Family Circle,New York Times and my personal favorite.. The Fabulous Finds.

They were so kind to give me an amazing tote for a lucky winner. I picked the print because I am all about "Finding the Good in Life". So this weekender says things like. GOOD NEWS,HAPPY,SMILE,REFRESH,FRIENDS,LOVE and so on....

Jilly Jack Designs Fab! CLOSED BLC WINNER!

Well to start off.. Jilly stands for the owner/designer and Jack is her 9 yr old son. I came across this company and loved the concept behind it. Jill was a graphic designer for 18yrs. She worked for large corporations as their Packaging and Event Grahic Designer. She decided to branch off on her own and had the passion to create her own line of unique stationary. Jilly Jack was hot off the press in 2006.

O.K. you are asking yourself what makes it so unique and why is it a Fab find? I was getting to that part. All of her cards are packaged in what Jill calls Folios. There are two styles one which is Felt and the other Billboard. Now the best part. The Felt is made from recycled water bottles and the Billboard is you guessed from what you see on the highways. Pretty cool..They are also each tied with a striped gross grain ribbon. Who would have thunk that a highway sign could turn into a holder (Folio) for note cards or water bottles for that matter. This is why I love to talk about creative women... Amazing.

Jilly Jack is devoted to using the planets resources. As they move forward all the note cards and envelopes are printed on Recycled paper. So go check out the designs and purchase a couple for yourself or gifts.. I love things that spark conversations and these cards come with a story..


Polka Dot Series Set $20.00

Notepad and Pencil Set $10.00

You can make a difference!

While on vacation I was shopping in little boutiques and came across this amazing bracelet. What caught my eye were all the amazing colored beads and silver spacers. Attached was a card about why the bracelet was made. So here goes. It is called the Mel's Bracelet and it represents an incredible fighter named Mel Simmons who lost her 5 year battle to breast cancer. She was an inspiring mom of two. The Bracelet is to raise money for cancer awareness. This year alone we will lose 40,000 Mom's,Grandmas,Sisters and Daughters to breast cancer. WOW is all I can say. I lost my Sister in Law to the disease. I bought this bracelet for $15 and all the proceeds goes towards the cause. I would love if you would check out the site and learn more about Mel and read her amazing story also purchase one of these for yourself..

This I would have to say is One of my Most Fabulous Finds!

Please when you buy one tell them Heather From The Fabulous Finds sent you.

Love It!.. I came across this Fabulous company. Started and owned by an amazing women named Sue Russell. Sue launched her company in 2008 after a long search for fun gifts. Her venture was created after working for the company 3M Post it products and high end stationary. After searching she discovered that what she was looking for didn't exsist. So she created a fun and beautiful line of self adhesive products. We all know magnetic backed Notepads,Picture Frames and Clips CAN'T stick to stainless Steel,Wood or Glass. So Sue Created her Happeez line.
Don't you love the name.. If I had to guess you have a smile on your face. It's a Fab name. I am smiling..Happeez has an assortment of products.

All of these products are backed with a patent grip material that sticks to where magnets do and where they don't,including Stainless Steel,Glass,Mirrors and more. Leaving no marks or residue and can grip and re-grip over and over. Non-toxic and Odor Free.
O.K. you are asking yourself does it really work? I was unsure myself.. I have painted glazed kitchen cabinets. I also have cabinet over my fridge. What was I thinking? I couldn't hang one school picture,artwork,report card.. Until Now. I tried the clip and frame on my fridge. LOVE IT! No glaze was removed from the cabinet. I was blown away. I thought my husband was going to have a heart attack. You know how men are. He's thinking it has to be repainted.. Well to both of our amazement. No residue, No removing of paint. Then I moved over to our stainless oven and dishwasher. Again he's biting his nails LOL.. and Nothing.. I am hooked. These products are a must buy. Mayfair Lane is my new found friend..
