La Toriana!

La Toriana was established by Elizabeth in 2006 when she found it hard to go out shopping for special and unique presents for babies and children at birthdays and other special events, for their own children and also for family and friends.

Elizabeth would look through stylish glossy magazines and see beautiful designer clothes, toys and accessories for babies and children that she would have loved to have gone out to see and buy, but with a small child of her own to take with her getting out to the shops was difficult, especially since she lived in the country.

So Elizabeth decided to set up a place where you could shop in the comfort of your own home, anytime that suited you, day – or night..and so La Toriana was born!

La Toriana has the latest releases and newest trends in the fashion and gift industry in their retail online store and Elizabeth is constantly doing market research to make sure she always has the highest quality products at affordable prices available to you along with excellent customer service.

Dr.Mom's Prescription for Managing Food Allergies

Dr Rita Malhotra-Kuczabski is a physician, mom and woman dealing with her own food allergies who has recently published a book – “Doctor Mom’s Prescription For Managing Food Allergies” – so this week I have chosen to feature this book on my blog as there are many people out there today with food allergies who might find some help within its pages, so without further ado I would like to share the back cover note of this book here...

Doctor Mom’s Prescription for Managing Your Food Allergies is a guide written to help you safely navigate your food allergies. It contains information for an adult, a child, or a family dealing with these issues. We start at the beginning, with diagnosis and testing. You will learn many techniques to prevent a reaction, but also how to manage one should it occur. Helpful hints are provided for successful label reading, understanding current laws, and becoming familiar with commonly used terminology. Tackling tough social situations and educating family and friends is also addressed. Sensible day to day tactics and food preparation pointers will reinforce your safety net and enhance your lifestyle!

Doctor Mom is a mother, a licensed physician, trained surgeon, and a woman dealing with her own allergies. These helpful strategies come from her heart. They have been derived from her medical knowledge, her personal experiences and her extensive research. They are practical and thoughtful, yet knowledge based. Dr. Rita Malhotra-Kuczabski is dedicated to her family and to the community. She has received honors from her Borough President, and from her city’s Mayor for outstanding community service. The author received both her Bachelor’s Degree, and Medical degree with top honors. She was also the recipient of an annual scholarship to medical school from The Miss America Pageant.

The author invites you to visit her website It offers a great deal of information on the subject including reaction prevention and management, product recommendations and recalls, current legislation, recipes, and much more. The site is proud to provide free online support forums. Embark on this journey with Dr Mom, and together, we will more successfully manage food allergies.

Hello Everyone..

As you have gathered I am changing the format of my blog over to enabling comments and I would like to be more user friendly on my blog so I will be trying a few things out but I would really like some input into what you all would like to see on my blog. I was thinking to change over the small business feature to doing one a fortnight and then each second week doing an informational blog, so if you are interested in learning about ingredients or herbs or want to learn some pantry pampering..speak up and I will get right onto it for you..

Looking forward to hearing some feedback from you all..if you have any problems posting a comment, please let me know as I have it set up for anyone can post a comment, but it sometimes glitches (like when I go to comment on some other blogs..sometimes it makes me post it twice before it will show it for some reason..) any ideas are welcome!
