My name is Krista Fabregas, mom to a busy teenage daughter and wife to a busy motorcycle-racing husband. Managing these two and our home over the years has been the perfect testing ground for all things a busy family demands — and the reason my websites, KidSmartLiving.com and SimplySmartLiving.com, came to be.
My Internet Story…
In 1999, I was a working mom with a one-year-old and a great job developing one of the first internet systems at NASA. This project led to my own online tinkering and ultimately to my first website, KidSmartLiving.com — a family-friendly living resource for busy parents like myself.
Within a year, I left NASA to devote myself full time to KidSmartLiving. Roughly a decade later, I had two e-commerce websites, a huge warehouse stocked with over 2000 different products, and a full-time staff.
I also had lots of opportunities to share my product finds and worry-free living ideas with the world, including the Today Show and my local news stations; in magazines such as Good Housekeeping, Parenting, and Better Homes & Gardens; and online with eHow.com, Disney.com, and Celebrations.com, to name a few.
I could hardly keep up!
So I decided to cut out the warehousing side and leave that up to Amazon. Now, I can focus on researching, testing, and reviewing the best very products for busy homes and lifestyles.
You’ll find my go-to-faves, newest discoveries, in-depth product reviews, and great deals in Reviews, Faves & Finds. As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases made via a link on our site. However, this is NOT pay-to-play. NO brand is paying us for inclusion. Reviews are independent and honest from personal experience with these products.
When I’m not scouring the markets and testing new products, I’m whipping up Recipes for busy lifestyles and the occasional Decorating DIY’s when the mood strikes.
I hope you like the new format. I’d love to hear what you think. Hitting it out of the park? Missing the ball completely? Please leave any comments, suggestions, or ideas you have — I check in daily!
