The Great Escape: Fun at Home

No time to get out and about? Not to worry. Grab your laptop and click around these sites to clear your head for a mini-escape.

The Great Escape: Fun at Home

The kids are finally napping, two hours to dinner, and the exertion of gardening or scrap-booking is just not what you had in mind? Make a warm cup of tea and surf the Internet for mom blogs, local deals, or window shopping. It just might be the thing to help you clear your head, relax, and enjoy your "mom-only" time.

Check out these sites for some child-free serenity:

1. Santeemom.com: This website offers a special guide to being a mom in your community, Santee. It has listings of family friendly business, an event calendar for local going-ons, and Kids Eat Free section to guide your discount hunt. Staying local? Try out this site.

2. Womenshealthmag.com: Talk about a website just for women! Here it is. With sections specializing in fitness, relationships, weight loss, health, beauty and style, and a daily prize sweepstakes, this might be the site for you to lose the stressful thoughts and discover some fun and exciting habits. This magazine and website often feature articles on new trends for women's health including hiking, biking, surfing, paddle-boarding, and swimming. Here's to the adventurous woman.

3. Ideeli.com: Ever want to walk into one of those extremely expensive designer stores and try something on? Afraid of having a " Pretty Woman" moment like Julia Roberts on Rodeo Drive? Now, thanks to the Internet and Ideeli.com, we can all access the designer sales. Boasting the best of the best, like BCBG, Charles David, and Magaschoni, couture or designer dresses, skirts, pants, and tops are available to the public at normal prices. Usually twice the price tag in a retail store, this website offers the best of the best, mailed straight to your door, after your shop and click away. If that doesn't clear your head, we're not sure what will. Plus, who says you have to purchase? Window shopping is perfectly acceptable. Drool away at all the sales.

Have some fun at home- perhaps the best location in Santee to "escape" or relax.
