Sago Sago has just launched a new app, Sago Mini Trucks and Diggers ($2.99 on iTunes). This game features the familiar lovable Sago Mini animals that kids have fallen in love with over the years. Let's be honest here, kids are always fascinated by those big construction machines from bulldozers to drillers.

This game takes a child's love for construction and mixes it into the whimsical Sago Mini world. Kids can choose... Continue reading

I'm a total paper junkie. I have always needed to use a notebook or agenda to plan my projects and organize my life. About four years ago, I splurged and got a Louis Vuitton PM (small) agenda. I am always surprised how much I really do use it and need it. I use it all the time for notes, business cards, and daily tasks. The small size is perfect because it fits in most of my handbags and isn't heavy at all. Last summer, I decided to jump on the Erin Condren train and purchased an 18 month Life Planner....
