Born in New York Donna Leah spent many hours of her youth dreaming and drawing the types of clothing that she wanted to wear — bold colors, dynamic textures, and designs that were based on how they made you feel and not the time of day to wear them. A graduate of New York’s famed Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) the American designer chose to base her brand, Donna Leah Designs, in Miami where the dynamic energy of the city and love of nature sparks her concepts.


We focus on innovative businesses and exciting entrepreneurs. Things get even more interesting when doing good is involved. Recently, we heard that Once Upon a Farm, the beloved kid nutrition brand, launched their newest organic, cold-pressed, fruit & veggie blend, Farmer Jen’s Sweet Potato Pie.

For every Farmer Jen’s Sweet Potato Pie pouch purchased, $0.25 will be donated to Save the Children (up to $50,000) — a non-profit organization helping kids grow up healthy, educated and safe across rural America. That’s amazing!

Items will be available to purchase exclusively on the Once Upon a Farm website starting on Giving Tuesday…

If there’s one piece of parenting advice that I’ve heard over and over again, it’s “pick your battles.” But what if I’m not looking to battle, but to find a middle ground? Do I have to give in all together? One area where I find this happening — and please don’t stop reading when I say this — is with what my kids wear.

On the outside, I appear to be calm about my kids going back to school. They attend a public school that is well funded and has engaged parents. Last week there was a Zoom call with over 300 participants and the general consensus among the parents is that mandatory masks, new ventilation systems, hundreds of new sanitizing stations, and 45-pages worth of initiatives cover as much as can be expected to keep students, teachers and everyone that works in the school safe.
