<![CDATA[The Best Baby Products That Are Totally Worth It]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-baby-products/anabel-conner
You've read all the books. You've practiced your "hee-hee-hoo" breathing. You are all ready for this kid to come. But which baby products should you have on hand before your bundle of joy makes its grand debut? 
 
It's easy to get sucked into buying more than you could ever possibly need for your baby. Instead of spending money on things you'll never use, get only the best of the best that'll be worth every penny you spend. Are organic baby products best? Better yet, how does one know which new baby products are worth the splurge? With baby comes more "stuff" than most could ever dream necessary, but we've compiled a list of new moms' top picks so you can vote up the ultimate must-have baby gear!

http://www.ranker.com/list/best-baby-products/anabel-conner,

Medela Freestyle Breast Pump
Though pumpin' and freestylin' sounds like something a DJ does, using a hands-free breast pump is probably loads more challenging. The Madela gets high marks for being super portable – you can easily throw it in your purse and go. It may be a bit expensive, but it is durable and will go the distance if you plan on having a large family. Holla!
Boppy Nursing Pillow
Feeling like the hunchback of Notre Dame's sister? Most likely you do if you're breastfeeding and don't have a Boppy Nursing Pillow! During your baby's first few months, you'll spend a full third of your life feeding him and hunching over all that time does a real number on your back. It's best to be comfortable, and this cushy horseshoe-shaped pillow provides ergonomically correct support. As a bonus, later on, it'll serve well as a prop for tummy time.
Sophie Giraffe
Sophie la Giraffe has been around for 50 years for good reasons: she's cute, durable, eco-friendly, and teething babies find her delightful to gum on. She's also simple and, with no moving parts, easy to clean... which is awesome because she'll most likely be covered in drool. A lot.
Bulb Syringe
It might only cost a buck and some petty change, but when used coupled with a saline solution like Little Noses Saline, a bulb syringe is a priceless item to a snotty baby. 
Safety 1st Fever Light 1 Second Ear Thermometer
Waking up in the middle of the night to a bawling baby is no fun and a trip to the ER is even less so. This digital ear thermometer beats all others, hands down, at providing super swift, accurate results in not-so-perfect of circumstances, such as dealing with dim lighting, squirmy kids, and bleary, tired eyes.
Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Bottles
If you're looking for the best baby bottle money can buy, you're in luck, because Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Baby Bottles are inexpensive. They're also super-duper eco-friendly, BPA-free, and frequent favorites amongst moms who switch between both breast and bottle feeding.
WubbaNub Pacifiers
Know what's cuter than a WubbaNub Pacifier? Nothing... except for YOUR BABY with a WubbaNub Pacifier IN HER MOUTH. And asleep. They're all cuter sleeping, right?
Milkmakers Lactation Cookies
Every woman's dream is to binge on cookies with absolute freedom from guilt, therefore, Milkmakers Lactation Cookies are a dream come true. These tasty cookies will increase your milk supply, so you're being a totally fab mother just by eating them. You and your boobs will be hooked.
Gripe Water
Gripe Water is a ginger-based concoction and a miracle worker for gassy babes. No mama of a colicky infant (and who wishes to retain her sanity!) should be without it.
Adjustable Back Seat Mirror
When your eyes are on the road and your baby is in back of you, nothing will alleviate the stress of the unknown like the Munchkin Adjustable Back Seat Mirror. It makes it easier for you to frequently check out what a totally adorbz kid you made, and it's great entertainment for him, since babies love seeing themselves in the mirror. No more worries! Unless, that is, you catch him reenacting De Niro's "You Talkin' To Me" scene from Taxi Driver back there.

<![CDATA[Inspiring Creation Stories By America's Biggest Brands]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-brand-stories/mike-calendrillo
Every day we use items produced by brands that are owned and operated by multi-billion dollar companies. But every brand identity had a humble beginning of someone with an idea, a little bit of money, and a whole lot of perseverance. Have you ever wondered how such giant companies like Ikea or Walmart got their start?

To learn the true essence of building a brand and brand identity, you have to go back to the start to see how, when, and why the brand even began in the first place. Vote up which stories you think are the most interesting of these big companies getting their start.

 
http://www.ranker.com/list/best-brand-stories/mike-calendrillo,

Apple
In 1976, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniack started Apple computers by selling 50 units of Wozniack's Apple Computer to a local retailer for $500 apiece. The two men and a small team hand built 50 computers in 30 days in a garage in Cupertino, CA.
Big Lots
Sol A. Shenk started Big Lots in 1967 as a wholesale auto parts store. And even though Shenk built his empire into 700 stores and $1 billion in annual revenue, his love for automobiles never waned, as he even purchased the remaining stocks of DeLorean Motors in 1982.
Cirque du Soleil
Guy Laliberte started his career as a fire eater, stilt walker, and accordion player on the streets of Montreal. In 1987, he brought a group of street performers to the Los Angeles Arts Festival on a one-way ticket. Soon enough, the group was brought to Las Vegas, where they evolved into the world-famous Cirque du Soleil. 
IKEA
Ingvar Kamprad began selling matches he bought in bulk to his neighbors in Stockholm, Sweden. He then moved onto selling fish, Christmas decorations, and pens. Always looking for more, Ingvar took money from his father that he earned for good grades to create a mail-order business that eventually became IKEA. Today, the home furnishing company is worth $6 billion.
 
John Paul Mitchell Systems
John Paul Dejoria grew up in Los Angeles foster care and became a member of a various LA street gangs. Years later, he tried his hand as an employee of Redken labs, where he borrowed $700 to create John Paul Mitchell Systems. In 1980, after the creation of his company, John Paul lived out of his car, going door to door to hawk his product. JPM systems now makes $900 million annually.
Kohl's
Maxwell Kohl was a Polish immigrant who worked in factories around the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, area until 1927. Kohl then saved up enough money to open a tiny grocery store, which was the first of his namesake's stores.
Nordstrom
John W. Nordstrom came to America in 1887 at the age of 16, and although he originally only had $5 in his pocket and couldn't speak English, John persevered. In 1897, he traveled to the Klondike in Alaska to mine gold, and after two years, he earned a $13,000 stake that he invested in his first shoe-repair shop in Washington State.
Pfizer
Charles Pfizer founded his business in 1849 after he and his cousin, Charles Earhardt, borrowed $2500 from Pfizer's father. The first product they created was an anti-parasitic used to treat intestinal worms, a common infliction in mid-19th century America.
Kraft Foods International Inc
In 1903, James L. Kraft learned the cheese company he invested in had gone out of business. With only the money in his pocket, he managed to purchase a horse and wagon, selling cheese as a one-man business. James Kraft even holds the first patent for processed cheese.
Oprah Winfrey Empire
After being molested by two family members and a neighbor, Oprah ran away from home at 13. By age 14, her newborn child had died. After moving back in with her father at her mother's request, Oprah received a scholarship to college, won a beauty pageant, and was discovered by a radio station. She is now worth $2.7 billion.

<![CDATA[The Best Cosmetic Brands]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/top-cosmetics-brands/makeup-tips
The top cosmetic brands make beauty products like mascara, lipstick, lotion, perfume and nail polish ranging from the most expensive, exclusive cosmetic brands to the best affordable cosmetic brands. Some brands are better than others but these best makeup brands stand above and beyond the rest while making you look like a million bucks without spending that much.

Like all things, sometimes just because something is more expensive does not mean that the quality is better, and some of the best cosmetics brands are not the most expensive makeup brands. This goes for cosmetics, but is also true that sometimes paying less is not worth getting an inferior product. Because of all of this, it's often a good idea to perform some trial and error with the products to decide which you think is the greatest cosmetic brand.

Company A may sell absolutely killer nail polish, but their foundation just doesn't cut it. Company B has mineral foundation you cannot live without, but their lipstick leaves a lot to be desired. Nothing says you must stick with one cosmetics brand for everything. Mix and match your eye shadows, mascaras and blush to find a combination perfect for you.

We've all made regretful cosmetics purchases, but with this user ranked list of cosmetics brands, should you run into a dud, you can vote down the cosmetics products that aren’t worth the money and time so other makeup users don’t run into the same cosmetics problems. If you don’t see your favorite cosmetics brand or the brand you consider to be the best makeup brand, make sure to add it to the list so other cosmetics users can discover your favorite makeup brands.

<![CDATA[Brands That Remind You of Your Dad]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/dad-brands-v1/mike-calendrillo
All fathers have that brand or brands that is their absolute go-to. And it doesn't matter what it is, if they have had a positive and long affiliation with their beloved, then this is where they will forever return. 

Perhaps thats the beauty about fathers – they are loyal in a way that is almost menacing when it comes to things that do them right. The true measure of a man can never be truly weighed, but if his personal relationships are anything like the ones he shares with his favorite brand of car per se, then you sure are lucky to call him Dad.
