Online gift registry SheWants.com finally gives women a place to ask for what they want
Diamonds are no longer a girl’s best friend--SheWants.com, a user friendly gift registry and wish list, allows women to ask for what they want without limits. Originators Adriana Padilla Mack and Marie Green wanted to create a space where women could dream big and express what they want in life. The idea stemmed from dinner conversations where frustrated females had, once again, received candles or fruitcake from a well meaning gifter. There seemed to be a lack of communication between the gifter and giftee, especially from the male species. Adriana and Marie decided then and there that they would create a website dedicated to the simple proposition: “If you’re going to give her something, then give her what she wants,” and SheWants.com was born.
The concept finally solves the problem women have had for years: how to communicate to the men, family, and friends in their lives what they want to receive. The femme savvy social portal combines several features: SheWants Wish List, SheWants Not, Calendar, and Blog for a unique experience.
Wishing Well - “SheWants Wish List”: One of the first things a SheWants member will create is a wish list. Women can ask for anything they want--a designer pair of heels, a tropical vacation, or even a donation to their favorite charity. The SheWants Wish List also states where to find the dream gift, eliminating the guesswork from giving. According to co-creator Adriana, the idea of the wish list appealed to her because, “If we put our dreams and wishes somewhere, or if we say it, it’s possible.
Things Better Left Ungifted - “She Wants Not”: Saving the world from knick knacks one member at a time, is the SheWants Not list, which allows women to say what they don’t want. The idea is to limit re-gifting and make people look closer at their best friend, neighbor, or significant other. It creates an eco-conscious environment by eliminating wasteful purchases.
Man’s Best Friend - “The Calendar”: This feature eliminates the headaches of men everywhere. Now befuddled boyfriends and harried husbands can not only find out exactly what women want, they can look up anniversaries, birthdays, etc…in the calendar section of her profile. Not just for the men, women can also pre-select a list of friends, family, and significant others whom they would like to send special “nudges” too.
Bite Size Tips - “Blog”: More than a place that simply lists things a woman wants, the site emerges as a helpful friend in the form of a blog. The founders Adriana Padilla Mack and Marie Green will be blogging on ways to keep gifting green, such as the “Gift Card Exchange Party” where women swap gift cards in a paper free environment. There are also blogs by guest and celebrity bloggers writing about fashion, jewelry, marriage, and all aspects of being a stylish female.
Speak Loudly and Carry a Big Beautiful Bag - SheWants.com has created a personalized experience from top to bottom. Upon establishing a free profile, the member embarks on a fun journey of self-expression and self-discovery, as she (perhaps for the first time) actually spells out what she wants.

Who Will Become The Next SuperModelquin And Take Home $100,000?
SAN FRANCISCO, FEBRUARY 19, 2010 – To build on the momentum of Old Navy’s recent success, Old Navy kicked off a consumer contest and advertising campaign this week that further immerses customers with the lives of the SuperModelquins - a diverse family of custom-made mannequins with gossip column-worthy personalities.
The Super Search contest allows consumers the chance to be molded as the next SuperModelquin and take home $100,000 through a series of online challenges that will test their plastic spokesmannequin skills. Thousands will enter to prove they have the style and stature worthy of the storefront spotlight. Over six weeks, www.oldnavy.com/super will host three super challenges.
In the first challenge, “Pose with the Plastic Pros” (2/16-2/25), contestants prove their plastic by heading into their local Old Navy and taking a photo of themselves with the SuperModelquins and uploading it to the Super Search site (www.oldnavy.com/super). The second challenge, “Moldelquin Makeover,” (3/4-3/14) uses the power of the SuperMolder technology, allowing contestants to build their plastic match to be rated by voters. The third challenge, “Lights, Camera, Plastic” (3/21-4/1) asks contestants to build their own Old Navy commercial and deliver the hilarious punch line to prove that they have what it takes to be plastic.
The supporting advertising campaign, developed in partnership with Crispin, Porter + Bogusky, is designed to help Old Navy’s target customer – a young mom on a budget shopping for herself and her family, further engage with the brand in the unique Old Navy way. It works by inviting customers to share the screen with Old Navy’s SuperModelquins who act as the contest’s judges, knocking points off for blinking, hair movement and other impossibly plastic qualities. With TV spots to promote each challenge, the SuperModelquins will not only plug the brand’s latest fashions, but will ask another contestant to “hand in their stand,” the campaign’s version of reality show rejection. As part of the campaign, on March 5, using SuperMolder technology, the SuperMolder will appear in New York City’s Times Square and customers will be able to display their customized SuperModelquins on the NASDAQ and Reuters boards.
In all stages of the contest, viewers can browse the gallery online at www.oldnavy.com/super and rate their favorites. At the end of each challenge, the contestant with the most points will become the winner of that challenge and advance to the fabulous finals (finalists appear on TV on 5/6). Then all spotlights are on the storefront stage. Who will hand in their stands, and who will be the last mannequin standing? Your votes decide. The winner, announced on 6/3, will be cast in real plastic as the next Old Navy SuperModelquin, appear in TV commercials, and take home $100,000.

Shoo, Jimmy Choo! By Catey Hill
I will be the first to admit that when I started reading this book I was not excited. Not a book about finance (my least favorite topic)! So as I started reading I became more and more impressed. Not only impressed, but inspired! This book is so clever! Catey Hill makes a topic that women have a difficult time hearing become interesting. I instantly wanted to clean out my financial closet! Comparing money to things women understand, such as diet, style, and fitness was a great idea. I have never been explained things better by any professional, for example, the health care section. I have had many different types of health insurance and have had them explained to me over and over, but have never fully understood any of it!
This book is great to help organize a budget, track spending, cut back on things that seem to slip through our fingers. I have already started my own charts that Catey has laid out so simple. I think of myself as an excellent bargain shopper, but I realized that doesn’t mean I am good with money! Even after reading this book it will be an excellent source to refer to throughout life when I buy a new home, or car, or do my taxes, etc., because it covers everything! This book is fantastic! I’m on my way to “savvy money management!” Reviewed by: Melinda
Looking to save money for a rainy day or save for retirement or just want to spend less? Check out Shoo, Jimmy Choo - The Modern Girl's Guide to Spending Less and Saving More.
Shoo, Jimmy Choo is a book for anyone looking to cut back on their spending. Caty Hill gives advice and even gives you worksheets so you can do it yourself. You will be guided though style, diet and fitness ...for your finances.
Some chapters included:
The Money Makeover: little or not-so-little financial "touch ups"
The Plastic Purge : curing the "plastic plague"
Climb the Career Ladder: landing your dream job and a pretty paycheck
Push for a Pad: buying a home or being a savvy renter
Written by Catey Hill, money editor of nydailynews.com.Before that she was the marketing manager at Plum TV and the author of The Plum Wealth Report. Catey herself is a recovering shoe addict.
I've read similar books and they're so not interesting. Catey Hill writes a great book with funny stories and scenarios just for women. I pretty much practice much of what is covered in this book, but it was a gentle reminder to stay focused.

Shoo, Jimmy Choo! By Catey Hill
This is a book I wish I had read in my early twenties. It's full of valuable information on how to get your financial life where you want it to be. From tips on evaluating your spending habits, identifying your spending triggers (this section was really eye-opening for me!) to paying off student loans, investing, and planning for a baby--this book has it all. Usually, finance books are straight-forward, just-the-facts, and slightly (okay A LOT) boring, but this book injects an element of fun into a serious topic. I like her light-hearted style and easy-to-read (and understand) presentation of information. This book is aimed at a younger audience, so I think it would make the perfect high school or college graduation gift. Reviewed by: Vanessa
Shoo,Jimmy Choo! By Catey Hill
As described as "The moderns Girl's Guide to spending Less".. I think this book is full of financial information and written in a fashionable style. Catey Hill has fun writing skills and gets to the point. I am 39 and this book would have been a great tool when I was in my twenties. I did take some information to heart though. I have to agree with Vanessa, this would make a great college/high school graduation gift. A eye opener to life, what to do with your money when you get that amazing job etc.. Still I love everything about it. Title,Writing style and information Great job Catey...Simply FABULOUS! Reviewed by: Heather
SHOO, Jimmy Choo.
Beautiful cover, great title. Makes you want to pick it up and read it. It feels light and airy when you first pick it up but this is the bible of all bibles for financials and getting your act straight. Catey Hill gives you everything you need, forms, websites, advice, motivation, etc. to force yourself to look at your financials with a magnifying glass and then put a plan to do something about it. A must read for all women! I loved it! Reviewed By Linda
