Holiday Tips to Avoid the Stress for Moms With Kim Orlando

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Dec 16, 2011) - The holidays can leave even the most organized parent feeling overwhelmed. Kim Orlando, the founder or, shares her tips to stay organized and enjoy the holidays!

Kim helps you tackle the top three stressors of the holiday season -- travel, organization and gifts for tweens!

Are you having family over or traveling to be with family? Give yourself or someone else the gift of space. When you travel to visit relatives or they visit you, it is absolutely OKAY to stay in a hotel or to ask them to stay in a hotel. Hotels like Hilton Garden Inn where you can count on free wifi, clean rooms with comfy beds, affordable rates, and a good rewards program, will ensure everyone gets a good night's rest. If you are a Hilton Honors member there are always special promotions where guests can earn double points, which will lead to a free stay faster.

Trying to keep all your to-do lists, calendars and contacts organized? Love Twitter Facebook and LinkedIn? Then you know how hard it is to keep them all updated when you are traveling. If you have a Windows Phone like an HTC Radar 4G, you can use the People Hub to update all 3 in one place on the phone quickly and easily -- no individual app launches necessary -- and that saves a ton of time. It is also offers Voice-to-Search, which makes it a great travel companion. For example, if you are in an unfamiliar city and you need pizza, you just tell the phone "Find Pizza!" and you will get a list of pizza places in the area. It also has a Voice-to-Text feature that is hands-free texting. It's safe, easy and efficient.

Trying to find that elusive gift for girls and tweens on your list? We have the first video games based on the hit show Victorious available just in time for the holidays. The new game Victorious: Time to Shine for Kinect will have tweens OFF THE COUCH acting, dancing and singing and the Victorious DS game: Hollywood Arts Debut gives tweens the opportunity to jump into the story and go on missions with their favorite characters.
