I thought I was going to die of excitement when my “unofficial” Emmy Swag Bag arrived from BABY SWAGS. No, I didn’t win, nor was I nominated, but it was fun to live like a celeb mommy and tear open my beautifully wrapped gift basket…I’ll shamelessly admit I dressed up for the occasion and sipped champagne while I checked out the fabulous products put together by the clever folks at BABY SWAGS. Received by all the nominees and winners of major awards at this years Emmy Awards (like Chandra Wilson and Mariska Hargitay). This is not your average swag package, mommies. You see, all the fabulous and brilliant products are made by work at home moms and entrepreneur women. Companies are carefully chosen and the result is luxury gifts made with thought and care. We are so impressed with the selection. Loved the onesie and cute hat from HAPPY PANDA, so soft and made of eco friendly fabric and dies. GABRIEL’S AUNT provides one of their scrumptious all natural candles that smells so delicious. We loved the soothie ( mini blankie) made by RITZY BITZY. It’s kept our tot very soothed indeed. Yes, I could get used to the life of a celeb mommy, gift baskets and all. To see all the fantastic companies that were included in this BABY SWAGS treat, check out www.babyswags.com.

Stripes are everywhere this fall…the runway, the chic streets of New York, and on the well heeled lady in that little French cafe you love to go to. Not just for classy sweaters and knits anymore, stripes are popping up in unexpected places. Why not let your little baby in on the fashion fun and get him decked out in the bold and funky onesies from the fantastic UK company BRIGHTS AND STRIPES. Super soft and we love the fit. Can’t tell you how many onesies we’ve tossed when we see how big and bulky they are. BRIGHTS AND STRIPES have a touch of lycra to keep your baby snug and comfy. Our favorite color combo is the Canary Yellow and Pea Green..this onesie is soooo KINGSTON ROSSDALE with it’s fresh and funky style. We also had the chance to try out their cuddly blankets. They feel smooth and yummy and wash like a dream. For all you mommies of newborns, these blankets are perfect for swaddling.

Are you feeling a little guilty about not doing enough to help the planet? Are you six months pregnant and so tired you can’t imagine getting out of bed let alone what the earth needs?

SCHONE MATERNITY makes their American made garments from certified organic cotton, bamboo, hemp and silk. Featured in OPRAH’S magazine, SCHONE’S designs are bold, feminine and versatile.

There is nothing more enjoyable after a long day of diaper changes, flying apple sauce, and runny noses (not to mention mountains of laundry and trying to decide what everyone will eat for supper) than locking yourself away in the bathroom with new spa products. I am a product junky, and our latest discovery has me wrapped in pure bliss. KLEAN BATH+BODY makes the most delicious scrubs, body butters and massage oils. Our favorite here at Celeb Baby Clothes? Has to be the scrumptious Brown Sugar Body Polish…I’ve never been so smooth. Didn’t even need moisturizer after using it, but since indulgence is key with any home spa experience, slathering on the Whipped Shea Butter seemed appropriate. KLEAN uses natural ingredients like almond oil, shea butter, coffee and green tea oil. Their scrubs are effective and the scents are super relaxing. So book yourself some “me” time momma and lock the bathroom door, pour a yummy glass of Shiraz, fill the tub and soak and scrub the evening away. Get KLEAN at www.kleanbathandbody.com
I’ll admit that I’m a sucker for anything OPRAH loves. Her favorites become my must haves. When I saw celebrity mommy, and wife of JERRY SEINFELD, JESSICA SEINFELD on OPRAH last week talking about how to get kids to eat their veggies, my ears immediately perked up. Dinner time has become a battle at our house, with the toddler winning hands down. She practically lives off of grill cheese sandwiches. I’ll also admit that I didn’t even thumb through the book at the shop before I threw my visa down…but there was no need as this cookbook on how to hide veggies in everyday healthy meals is brilliant. Easy to read and follow with fantastic tips from other moms waging meal wars at home. Love the recipes and art work…besides being useful, this book is super cute looking. As a mommy who loves cookbooks (Jamie and Nigella are my kitchen heroes), DECEPTIVELY DELICIOUS gets the style right by using spiral rings to make page turning easier and keeps your book open while you stir and chop…thanks Jessica. Our favorite recipes? Has to be the French Toast and the Brownies (who new that carrots and spinach could be hidden so well?). So stop freaking at the dinner table…hide the veggies and sit back and smile knowing your kids are getting a healthy meal. Get your sanity back with : Deceptively Delicious

We are simply in love with the creative toys from the uber cool HABA. This is a company that has your child’s imagination and entertainment needs figured out. Our favorite? It has to be their fabulous grocery store toys. Our little drama queen is obsessed with her HABA sandwich set…it comes with soft fabric toast, and felt made cheese and lunch meats. How delicious is that? Made with bright bold colors, these pretend groceries are so simple, yet so creative. She spends hours making sandwiches for all her dollies (gives the busy momma lots of time to make real meals for the family!). We’re also digging HABA’S wooden miniature milk cartons, and brilliant tins of veggies. These toys teach good eating habits to impressionable toddlers, which makes it a mommy must have for us at Celebrity Baby Clothes. HABA has a fantastic international site that shows you all the fun they have to offer. Get your grocery shopping done at www.oompa.com
