A few months ago we started to hear lots of chatter about a new blog that had all of Hollywood’s hot young moms in a thither—make that Twitter. Clever, contemporary and cool, BreezyMama.com had launched as the first and last word for yummy mummies in the know. Featuring profiles, product reviews, and sage advice, BreezyMama had even caught the attention of action sport’s elite with its close ties to the beach scene and surrounding lifestyles. And wouldn’t you know it, editors Chelsea and Alex (both Carlsbad, CA, natives) are big, big fans of Swell. In their recent “Products For Easy Beach Days” review, they were all over our Go Pro Digital Camera. Slick and compact, this waterproof gem attaches to your wrist and displays amazing high quality photos and video. Which comes in handy should you “find yourself running after your child, taking photos, and a wave takes her out… you won’t have to worry about saving your camera as you save her.”

Thank you for visiting the Swell blog. Visit us on www.facebook.com/swell for more exclusive fan offers, giveaways and more.

But as lofty as their aspirations are, more daunting is finding the right path to get them there.

For world renowned designer Monica Wise, creator and owner of L*Space Swimwear, her tale is far from your text book example. In fact, some would say her journey began out in left field. But like so many other great self-made success stories, Monica’s underlying theme is that great expectations will always produce triumphant endings.
