Working women and Moms sometimes have limited time to spend on the Internet. In order to fit the most into those valuable minutes a list of useful sites is in order. For recipes I love the two major recipe sites allrecipes.com/ and http://www.cooks.com/. These two sites alone can provide an almost limitless supply of recipes.
We all need to stay in shape and being taxi mom doesn’t help you keep fit or healthy. The most popular sites that women visit for exercise and health are http://www.webmd.com/ for health related information,http://www.livestrong.com/ for diet, exercise and good advice on healthy living. http://www.shape.com/ has marvelous articles on workouts and exercise.
For online shopping the list is a little longer. My favorite sites are easy to navigate and you can find some awesome bargains too.
- http://www.amazon.com for general interest and just about anything.
- http://www.goodreads.com for great choices in books.
- http://www.ebay.com for general interest and electronics.
- http://www.target.com has a great wedding and baby registry.
- http://www.snapfish.com has tons of photo gift ideas and books that you can upload digital prints to, then order the prints to have them mailed or pickup at a local store.
These sites are my fabulous five where I can find the best deals and get through the purchase process quickly. They also have fast shipping or local pickup. If you are in a rush because of a forgotten Birthday local pickup is the way to go.
When I have some free time to just cruise around and find interesting things I will visit http://www.pinterest.com/. Here you can find and follow “pins” that other people have found on the internet and shared with everyone else. It is a very interesting site. I think that most women would agree that http://www.twitter.com and http://www.facebook.comare the leaders, right now, in social networking sites. There are others that are gaining popularity though and for our younger generation these sites may take a backseat to their favorites like http://www.snapchat.com/ and http://www.skype.com/.
One of many women’s favorite things to do online is to shop for new clothing, shoes, makeup and hairstyles. Some of the most trendy sites for clothing are http://www.zulily.com/ and http://www.wish.com/. A nice site to visit for a good variety of shoe styles is http://www.zappos.com/.
We also need to keep up on what’s hot and what’s not and a good place to check this out is http://www.vogue.com/. Vogue has been around since 1892, they must be doing something right. This magazine has been a fabulous resource for women’s fashions and makeup for so long it has almost become a staple for the fashionable women.
One interesting fact about Vogue is that you can look back at their archives all the way to 1892 and see styles of yesteryear. You can subscribe to the archives at http://www.vogue.com/archive/. Another fun magazine with current and trending styles is http://www.people.com/. You can also read up on your favorites celebs while you look over all the hot new styles. For teens http://www.seventeen.com is a great resource for fun games, articles and trending fashions and makeup. They have some great articles.
