In 2009, a number of businesses were spotted that had services designed specifically with women and moms in mind. Sure, some of them might be sexist, some of them might be practical, and some of them might be completely strange, but they are what they are and they make up 2009's 15 best businesses for women and moms. Stay tuned for part two!
Proving that sometimes the simplest of business concepts are the ones that make real waves, is one music company that has a multitude of celebrity clients.
Who knew that horses, cows and camels had feet that could be so trendy? Well, over the past year, there have been a number of interesting shoe designs made to resemble hooves. In some cases, designers are know, in other cases, no one seems to want to take credit for the funky designs (who would have thought?!). Whether this is a trend that you love or hate, it's probably one that you have strong feelings about, and here are some of the most fashionable and freaky cloven hoof shoe designs I've come across recently!
Heelless heels: how's that for an oxymoron? The shoes you're about to see aren't for the weak at heart; they're for the fashion risk-takers and those with gravity on their sides!

Moms are among the hardest working people on the planet, and I'm only talking about the ones who parent full-time, not to mention those that juggle other responsibilities, like careers at the same time! This holiday season, give a mom in your life a break from one of her daily parenting duties - lunch making, by supplying her with a service that delivers healthy meals to her kids at school!

Sometimes it's unfortunate that the most talked about fashion items only make it to a period of conceptualization and never actually hit the streets or the runways.
