Our Favorite Hot Chick Businesses

When we talk about how to eat, love, or live like a Hot Chick, we are referring to doing each of these things with an inner confidence that shines through and helps you find success in every part of your life. We love to meet other women who are working and living like true Hot Chicks by using their talents, smarts, and savvy to go after what they want in life while giving back to the world in creative and inspiring ways. Today we are excited to share our three favorite new businesses that were started by total Hot Chicks who are changing the world with their positive attitudes and actions. Check them out!

1) Cardivore
Visit www.cardivore.blogspot.com, the site "where cause meets craft," to buy Hot Chick Chloe Shaw's adorable, handmade note cards. These cards are not only so much more unique and personal than the kind you can buy at CVS, but 100% of their proceeds go towards supporting shelter animals. Chloe came up with the idea for this site after hearing that her local animal shelter was overrun with animals who were in need of new homes. Between being a new mom, writing a novel, and already adopting four animals, Chloe didn't have a lot of time or money to give, but she was able to combine her passion for animals with her inner Martha Stewart to create a business that is good for the animals, good for the postal system, and good for friendships! We're sure you know lots of people who could use an adorable handmade card right about now. Visit Cardivore today and help save some animals while making people in your life feel good!

2) Fancy French Cologne
After playing in an indie rock band together for six years, Hot Chicks Christine Bloghand and Carly Schneider-Cark decided that they wanted to start a business that helped make women feel classically beautiful and sexy, as if they were wearing some fancy French cologne. Inspired by classic San Francisco style, their online boutique carries fashion-forward clothing, bags, and accessories that all transition seamlessly from day to night. Don't we all need a few outfits that make us feel savvy at work all day and just as sexy at happy hour? The Hot Chicks at Fancy French Cologne are committed to bringing a unique experience to online shopping--one that conjures the intimacy of browsing at your favorite local boutique. They even feature a selection of handmade items designed exclusively for the site by independent designers, which we think is especially hot. You totally deserve to feel like you're showered in www.fancyfrenchcologne.com.

3) Ecobaby Planning
Hot Chick Melanie Monroe is on a mission to find creative ways to help save the planet while nurturing new moms. Her company, Ecobaby Planning, is an eco-savvy consulting service that provides a green blueprint for women throughout their pregnancies, births, and new lives with their babies! Ecobaby is redefining green by helping families embrace the natural path of pregnancy and parenting. If you have a bun in the oven (or if you're working on it) visit www.ecobabyplanning.com for Melanie's invaluable service, support, guidance, knowledge, and expertise that will help you enjoy your pregnancy and welcome your new baby into the world in the most beautiful and sustainable way.
