Carrie Harkin | Personal Stylist


“What you wear inherently affects your mood everyday, but it also tells others who you are. Clothing is a tool, and if you use this tool correctly, it will take the stress out of getting ready and leave you feeling confident. I love showing my clients how to use clothing as a tool for confidence in their professional and personal lives. I’d love to show you too!”

This season, give the gift of style…
Carrie helps her clients find their style and build their wardrobe.
Give a unique gift to someone with New Year’s resolutions in mind.
Do you know someone who wants to “edit” their closet? Maybe they need encouragement to tackle a clothing revamp in 2024?

Each gemstone brings energy and intention to your space.


Mala and Mantra jewelry is handcrafted through a Fair Trade cooperative of talented women in the Philippines. Our alliance provides fair wages, a safe working environment and the self-sustaining support of each artisan, their families and communities.

Read episode #1 of our Biz-Mom Interview with Kendra Vallone Matthews, founder of Hidden Foods Co. 

Hidden Foods Co.

Kendra Vallone Matthews is a mom of two busy boys — one of which is a picky eater.  Kendra had to find a way to sneak in vegetables and nutrients without him knowing. With a culinary background originating from her Italian grandma, she discovered ways to “improve” the family recipes while maintaining great flavors. 

Kendra focused on three values: hidden vegetables, no added sugar and all natural ingredients. The foods were a hit with the entire family and soon became popular with friends.  From that success, Hidden Foods was born, and it continues to grow in popularity with mom influencers across the planet!

As a mom-owned business, Hidden Foods Co. is focused on “Hiding Healthy in Great Taste”. They promise to deliver great tasting pasta sauces, pancake mixes and cookies that satisfy kids’ palates while balancing parents’ health conscious search for nutritionally balanced meals. 


The Hidden Foods Co. product line is available locally at Seaside Market in Cardiff and Harvest Market in Encinitas. Products are also available on

Celebrate the HoliDates®


Celebrate the HoliDates® this December Twenty-Five!

December Twenty-Five: 12/25 is the third title of the budding children’s book series that celebrates the holidays kids love!


…returns on the same day each year, just like other family and child-favorite events. But young kids don’t always know when those celebration dates dot the calendar. Questions like: “When is Christmas coming? What season is Valentine’s Day? Is it Halloween yet?” compelled author María Felicia Kelley to answer her son’s questions in the form of the books, February Fourteen: 2/14October Thirty-One: 10/31 and, now, December Twenty-Five: 12/25!

Constantine’s curiosity drove his mom’s creativity and growing book series. Thanks to the book, the seasons, the months of the year, and holiday dates around the calendar are fun topics to explore. Inspired by Constantine, María Felicia Kelley created the Celebrate the HoliDates® children’s book series to entertain and inform.
December Twenty-Five: 12/25 is book #3 of the Celebrate the HoliDates® series. It’s three-reads-in-one featuring a story about the fun of the Christmas season, a dip into the origins of Christmas and a special original recipe for a chewy marshmallow-chocolate treat. Perfect for preschoolers and elementary kids, it’s 62 pages of festive holiday fun that highlights seasonal themes, holiday traditions and calendar curiosity. 

And then there’s the song — an original Christmas carol, Believe on December Twenty-Five — sung by popular recording artist, Rebecca Jade with an outstanding musical arrangement by Carnell Harrell.

Celebrate the HoliDates® books are are crafted for educational fun! The books of the series are both entertaining, informative and activity-inspired opportunities to learn and to celebrate!
