We’ve all been in that situation. You know, the impossible person on your list to shop for? I’m here to tell you that you’re over thinking things. Did you know that one of the most favored gifts is food? You’ve been there…snacking out of your stockings while you’re family opens gifts as you await your turn.

Happy November, everyone! I am so excited to be introducing yet another great business for our Need it Now! Small Business Series. This week, we’re featuring go-comb! Based in Brooklyn, New York, go-comb specializes in wallet-size combs that are perfect on the go. They are sleek, stylish and super convenient.
I got to chat with Heather Burkman, the genius behind go-comb to hear about how she got her start as a small business owner. Her combs have been featured in People, the knot, People Stylewatch, and Real Simple, just to name a few. Check out her story (and a very special exclusive offer for readers of ATP! at the end of the post!)
We’ve been in the midst of a new makeover for our front room and wanted to go for a crisp minimalist look with art from our favorite artisans. It was a no brainer to us when we came across Local and Lejos, a brand specializing in unique handmade goods from around the world. Their tagline “Design with Intention” truly represents what they’re about. Local and Lejos partners with artisans globally and helps create steady employment opportunities for craters to build better lives for themselves and their communities. Everything in their shop is beautifully handmade and represents a story. I got the pleasure to interview Sheeva, the founder of Local and Lejos, to learn more about her brand and story. I know you will just love what this brand is all about. Not to mention, all of the beautiful, unique pieces they have to offer.

Not only did I want to desperately fit back in my pre-pregnancy clothes, but I also wanted change my exercise and diet habits to better my personal health for my 2 sons who are my world. It hasn’t been an easy feat by any means. I struggle with snacking and finding something that will keep me full and out of our “snack shack” cupboard at home. Read More… Snack Good. Feel Gooder.
