Celebrating 5 YEARS of Boutique Cafe!

September 10th, 2009

highfive I can scarcely believe I’m typing our 5th Birthday post, but its true! 5 years ago this month Boutique Cafe launched with our very first show featuring boutique designer Lark, and her precious daughter and model Sophie. Since then we’ve welcomed some incredible guests, hosted celebrities, bonded together as a community, played some fun games, held countless contests and giveaways, recommended hundreds of products for you and your family, travelled to meet each other at our 1st Boutique Cafe Girls Getaway Conference, hosted a live feed at Quilt Market, spotlighted tons of mompreneurs in our popular 12 Days of Christmas shows, and have even been sponsored by big name companies like Aveeno Baby from Johnson & Johnson! Whew, I’m tired!! :)

That is just a sprinkling of what we have been able to accomplish together, each day I hear stories of how members of our community have followed their dreams and gone on to great success. All the while we at Boutique Cafe have been cheering you on, bringing you new inspiration, and in several cases given our guests a platform to get their message out to the world. We are so honored to support women and moms in their businesses, its what brings us the most joy! And when I hear that we’ve made a difference to you, well it honestly touches me to the core.

I am currently working on posting a NEW podcast as well as a huge gaggle of Giveaways! Keep a close watch on the site for this in the coming day or two!

Thank you to each and every one of our listeners, readers and viewers for contributing to Boutique Cafe over the years. We couldn’t do any of this without your support, and encouragement. Here’s to another 5 years! :) Hugs to each of you from the bottom of my heart – Daria

A little Vacay

August 18th, 2009

Greetings Boutique Cafe viewers! I’ll be basking in the summer sun of California with my family for the next few days. If you have inquiries feel free to send them through, I will have my laptop and will check in intermittently. Emily will still be here posting Daily Dish reviews, so stop by often. I’m hoping to capture some fun footage for Boutique Cafe while I’m there, as well as have some baby gender news this coming Saturday. We’ll be heading to an ultrasound while on our vacation and will let you know if this bundle is our 5th boy or 1st girl! Stay tuned for that news.

Have a wonderful week with your families. I know some of you are already back to school, and some are just about ready to go back. We’ll have some fun things coming up on the site soon, it’s going to be GREAT! – XO Daria

2nd Meetup with Anna Maria Horner – Show #113

July 23rd, 2009

Greetings Boutique Cafe Viewers! It’s been awhile since our last show, my apologies for taking a break from podcasting over the past few months due to illness in my pregnancy. Thankfully, in a moment of renewed strength today I found this video in our “Boutique Cafe Vault” from Fall Quilt Market last year. This unseen interview is with the amazing and lovely Anna Maria Horner! I truly hope you’ll enjoy it and leave comments for Anna Maria as well.

In our chat, we discuss her book “Seams to Me”, Good Folks fabric line, new patterns available, and her exciting pregnancy coinciding with a Little Folks fabric line as well. Since we taped this back in Fall last year, Anna Maria’s beautiful little son Roman indeed arrived and is beyond precious. Congratulations again Anna Maria! XO!

Digital Moms – Today Show pt. 2

March 10th, 2009

The online influence of Digital Moms are in hot demand these days. In the second part of The Today Show’s series on Digital Moms, Ann Curry interviews Teri Walter Razorfish, and Wendy Piersall Founder and CEO of Sparkplugging.com. They also feature Melissa Garcia – Consumer Queen who saves money – snags coupons – promotes bargains – and educates other women how to do the same on her popular website.

“Moms want to hear from other moms. They don’t want to hear from a Corporate company. They want to hear from someone just like them.” – Melissa Garcia

The key to product success is knowing your audience, and with approx. 30,000,000 women online it’s essential to reach out to them through someone they trust. I’m sure many of us remember the backlash behind the Motrin ads on baby wearing. Moms spoke up online, and Motrin pulled the ad realizing that they had offended many of their target audience.

Moms are not only influencing other moms with their product reviews, but they are also influencing corporate America. Advertisers are now reaching out to these mom bloggers and site owners, providing free products for a recommendation on their sites. Wendy Piersall, gives her advice to moms who may be interested in providing a voice online, but also stresses the amount of work and time it takes before things payoff – it can take years. “It’s really rewarding” – she says.

For most, the opportunity to reach out online and connect with others is the biggest benefit of being a mom in the digital age. Social networks provide a chance for camaraderie and friendship.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on Digital Moms and Social Networking. How does this affect what you buy? Do you utilize social networks for friendship and support?

Digital Moms on The Today Show

March 9th, 2009

This isn’t our interview, but we felt this was so timely and important that we would share it on Boutique Cafe. Digital Moms Laura Fortner – CafeMom and Heather Armstrong Dooce joined Meredith Vera on The Today Show to discuss motherhood 2.0, and how approx. 30,000,000 women are now online.

Everything from raising a baby & connecting for support, to info seekers, groupsters, connectors – the reasons for being online go on and on. Boutique Cafe would like to know, why are you online? What does motherhood 2.0 give you? How does it enhance your parenting experience, and how does it take away from it? We’re excited to read your comments.
