Momtrepreneur/Inventor, Marcy McKenna hits a home run for the bath and home organization industries.

Rarely does an invention come along that is a virtual slam dunk in terms of changing the way we go about our daily lives.  Momtrepreneur and Inventor Marcy McKenna, appears to have done just that with her break through invention, The Style & Go™ Hair Care Valet.  When we think of inventions in terms of “solving a problem”, this one sets the bar.  Kelly Ripa and the folks at TLC and HSN happen to agree as Marcy and her Style & Go™ product beat out thousands of others to win their reality show competition, Homemade Millionaire.

Gone are the days of tangled cords, cluttered bathroom counters and unsightly hair care appliances haphazardly hung on walls or strewn across valuable bathroom counter space.  Women and men alike will rejoice at the thought of having an aesthetically pleasing cabinet mounted on their bathroom wall to neatly house their hair care appliances and products, all while consolidating several cords into one and eliminating the fire hazard so commonly seen when appliances are stored improperly.  Even men will be relieved to have their counter space freed up and their bathroom looking neat and organized.

The cabinet is a dream come true for many who face the problem of limited bathroom counter, drawer and cabinet space or for those who just long for an aesthetically pleasing bathroom, free of ugly cords, hairdryers, curling irons and straightening irons.  With mounting devices for all three appliances, a separate electrical outlet for each and shelf space for hair care products and accessories, the cabinet seamlessly consolidates all your hair care needs into one space.  Mirrors on both the exterior and interior cabinet door in conjunction with an existing bathroom mirror make for easy multi-side viewing when the appliances are in use.  And because there is no need to wait for appliances to cool down before putting them away, you’ll save much needed time in the morning and your bathroom will always look its best.

With a product of such mass appeal, and with nothing else on the market like it, The Style & Go™ Hair Care Valet seems a shoo-in for the award winning Inventor.  The product is scheduled to launch this Summer on the home shopping powerhouse, HSN. 

Marcy’s first invention to hit the market, The Cambia™ Clutch Collection garnered nearly a five star rating across the board and is now sold out on HSN.  Another of her products, “My French Press,” will be debuting in July during HSN’s “24 Hour Chef’s Event.”  Marcy recently partner with Celebrity Stylist, Rachel Zoe to create an innovative lifestyle and accessory line that is expected to launch next Spring.  With 17 other inventions in development, this is only the tip of the ice berg for her brand, “Simply Solved by Marcy McKenna.”

Products Gifted to Jessica Simpson and Baby Maxwell

We had so much fun putting the gifting together for Jessica Simpson and Baby Maxwell.  The products were so adorable AND useful for a new Mom.  We're sure that Jessica and her fiance Eric Johnson will agree!

Please support these hardworking and talented women by visiting their websites and sharing their products with your friends.  We're sure you will love their products as much as Jessica does.

Products Gifted to Jessica Simpson

Scratch Me Not
About: Our company, Short Stacks, started shortly after our family grew with the birth of our daughter. Upon learning that she was scratching her skin due to eczema, we began searching for anything to calm her skin. Over time, our comprehensive search became a passion. We found clothing that worked somewhat, but either the material wasn’t breathable, it was too rough, or she was able to take it off. With newfound inspiration, we came up with the ScratchMeNot Tinies and Tots! Simple yet effective gear that aids in preventing children from scratching their skin. This allows a better healing process for whatever skin irritant a child may be dealing with.

Silly Creatures
About: SillyCreatures.com is a family owned and run company. Simon (our chief designer) is seven years old and loves to design and make the silliest of creatures. He loves to give them weird names too. We are a socially responsible company. We manufacture our products in the USA because we want to keep and create local jobs to help boost our economy. We strive to be green – from our products to our packaging and daily operations, we are taking steps to help improve the world around us. In addition we donate our toys to school fund-raisers and children’s charities.

About: Purely Shea® was developed by a pharmacist who suffered from severe skin rashes as a result of using harsh hand cleansers in a hospital pharmacy. Countless products were used to help the condition, including refined shea buter, but nothing seemed to help. A family friend suggested the use of Pure Unrefined Shea Butter instead to provide relief. And then something amazing happened-3 days later the rash was gone. After much intensive research, it was learned that ALL SHEA BUTTER PRODUCTS ARE NOT EQUAL! Purely Shea® was created to tell the true story of shea butter.

About: We are 2 busy moms and friends from Macon, Ga with 6 kids, 2 husbands and a gaggle of pets between us. Together, we created HYH luxury shapewear pants. Unable to find our miracle pant, we invented it. HYH streamlines shapewear and fashion. Besides improving the view, our product eliminates the annoyance and discomfort of rolling, binding and sagging – we take the suffering out of shaping. The secret is a layer of highly graded compression shapewear sewn comfortably underneath a fashion pant; thus creating the rear lifting, silhouette smoothing, premier go-to item that we ourselves want to wear. The result of our efforts has made getting dressed and feeling confident a truly fun process! There is nothing like instant gratification. Trust us, they work.

About: I was a new mom when I decided to make my own bibs and burp cloths for my little girl, Emma. She was such a messy eater! When she started solid foods thank-goodness we had “TZ-BURPS” bibs! I got a lot of compliments on my bibs which is why I decided to start making them for others to enjoy. From there, I branched out and started making environmentally friendly wash-rags to help clean up the mess after a meal. Then, I added ribbon blankies for little ones to snuggle up with at nap time and night time. Now, as my daughter grows so do my items. I make all sorts of things: XL changing pads, hair clips/bow holders, gift sets, and my newest creation…fleece owls and birds.
