A few weeks back we told you about our new flat iron from FHI HEAT…we gushed really. The entire line at FHI HEAT is a celebrity stylist favorite and used by Nicole Kidman and Miss Aniston (not a celeb mommy, but she has great hair doesn’t she?). Last week we got to try out their fabulous new brushes…and it’s a good thing we had them with us on vacation as we forgot our handy new flat iron. These new lightweight brushes did most of the work for us, which as any smart mommy knows is worth a million dollars (these professional brushes only cost about $20 bucks). The round brush was best for us with our short hair, but they’ve also come out with a curved and a paddle brush too. The brushes combine tourlamine and nano silver, which honestly just confuses us, but it certainly makes our hair look conditioned and healthy. Good hair can make your worst mommy nightmare disappear. Dirty diaper? Who cares when your hair is shiny. Screaming baby at the cafe? Just run your fingers through your sleek new ‘do and smile. We tried it, and it works.

Tori Spelling and may not share the same zip code as us, but we do have one thing in common….we both posses the most fabulous diaper bag ever. The Slide Diaper Bag by GoGaGa is our new best friend here at Celebrity Baby Clothes. It was a monster a hit at the celebrity filled Boom Boom Room in NY and LA and named one of the Best Diaper Bags by Fit Pregnancy…pretty impressive when you consider the vast amount of diaper bags out there. The Slide wowed us with it’s sleek design and level of comfort it provided. Not once have we had a sore back or sacrificed our sense of style after carrying it all over town with our baby. Love that the lined bottle pockets on the side are easy to reach with one hand as that’s often all a mommy has when doing ten things at once. The super comfy strap takes the weight of the bag and distributes it in all the right places. The shades to choose from are urban and current, and there’s no bubble gum pink to be found, thank goodness. We chose ours in Copper and have been getting raves from all the mommies at the playground. It doubles as our laptop bag too, which is super convenient when we want to do a little work while sipping lattes while baby naps at the coffee shop. We think it’s time you ditch your ” really pretty, but totally uncomfortable baby bag” and become a Go GaGa devotee like us and Tori. Check ’em out at www.gogagalife.com
It’s that time of year again…the air has that familiar chill at night. Time to pack up your swimmers and sandals and pull out the warmer wardrobe. Don’t despair momma…the cool weather is just the perfect excuse you need to get some smashing boots for your tot. Our choice this fall? Blundstone. This Aussie cult fave has such a good reputation, and now they make boots for children too. Their kids line is called Blunnies and they are simply fabulous. Totally durable, sturdy and tough enough to handle just about anything your toddler does…a necessity for a truly stylish Fall wardrobe. We went for the rich chocolate brown pair, safe and classic, but the unexpected fushia pair is calling our name too. They go with just about anything, and slip on so easy…our wee one loves that she can put them on all by herself. Check out this absolute must have at www.blundstone.com and at www.blundstone.ca for our Canadian friends.
We’re all about mommy style this week, as you can see. Our advice for you mommas-to-be that are stuck in a rut is to check out the unbelievably gorgeous designs at Pietro Brunelli. If it’s glamor and and style you’re after, then this Italian maternity line for you. We absolutely love their Platinum Mini Dress. So gorgeous and unexpected…perfect for a stylish night out with the husband before baby arrives. Pair it with a light wrap and a sexy summer sandal and you’ll be ready for that late summer wedding. Peitro’s Italian creations will help you keep up your reputation as a hip and stylish mommy and show off all the fabulous things that come along with being pregnant. Can’t wait to see what they have coming for Fall/Winter. Celebrate your new and stunning shape at www.pietrobrunelli.com
Something we’ve learned over the years is that when you are pregnant you need to maintain your sense of style. Looking fabulous and put together will get you through the most challenging moments of pregnancy. The right maternity outfit can make blemishes, weight gain and swollen feet seem minor and unimportant (for a few hours anyway). We had the pleasure of trying out the stylish designs at Olian Maternity. Their gorgeous lines and cuts just hug you in all the right places…this is no time to hide momma, show off that beautiful bump. Classy shirts, timeless dresses and fabulous sleepwear. Our favorite piece has to be their Maternity & Nursing Lounge Set. We love outfits that help you get through that awkward time after you have a baby…you need comfort, but want to look good. This is no time for old sweats and wrinkled tees. Bringing it up a notch will make 4am feedings and nap time more glamorous. We found Olian’s PJ’s comfy and definitely stylish enough to greet all those guests that stop by to see you and the baby (why does the doorbell ring just as you’re about to feed the baby? ). Perfect for breastfeeding and it comes with a chic little robe and a sweet baby sleeping gown. You’ll be the hippest mommy on the maternity ward. Get some new mommy style at www.olianmaternity.com
For those of us who can’t sew to save our lives, and don’t have a grammy to do the stitching, homemade blankets are difficult to come by . One look at the luxurious hand made quilts and you’ll start gushing along with us. We’ve been on the hunt for just the right quilt for a long long time, once we found Milklush our search was over. We wanted the best and most stylish quilt for our tot, as all mommies do. These hand made Canadian quilts (Canadians know a thing or two about how to keep warm and cozy) come in beautiful patterns, all unique and original. Being a complete blanket snob, the fact that no two are alike makes us quite pleased. The back is a deep chocolate minky (super soft), and the center is filled with organic cotton batting. It has fabric tabs that can hook onto your stroller so you don’t drop it in a puddle (but if you do…it washes really easy on gentle). These quilts would be a hit at the next baby shower you attend this Fall, or a fabulous Christmas gift for the wee one. It has a glamorous yet homey feel to it, which we think makes it just perfect. Next on our list? We have to try their waterproof play mats. Wrap your tot up in Milklush at www.milklush.com
Yes, yes, we know we said we were tired of cute little animal shirts…however we may have been too hasty in our dissing. Our little tot loves tees with animals that go moo and oink, so we had to find one we could both agree on. We came across Colette Kids while searching for back to school clothes, and must say that we just love their hand silk screened shirts. Colette’s tees and onesies have cool geometric interpretations of animals…not too cutesie and very original. The shades and graphics are modern and unisex, and they even offer organic onesies. Our favorite? Charlotte The Pig won over our household…but Rufus The Dog is a close second. All that matters is that our wee tot loves her piggy tee and that mommy thinks it’s hip too. Colette Kids has a brilliant sale on now (hurrah!). Find your favorite animal at www.colettekids.com
Must tell you about a fabulous sale…quickly head on over to www.smitherman.etsy.com for a fabulous summer sale…elegant and classy, these designs are to die for mommas!
Our tot’s favorite thing to say these days is “I’m a smart girl!”, and we couldn’t agree with her more…and what smart girl doesn’t like to wear clothes with other smart girls on it? We are so over the “Wonderwoman retro t-shirt thing”, and thrilled to find a company making original shirts with characters that portray girls in a strong, clever and humorous way. Gohgirl makes tees, onesies and paper goods that sport modern secret agents from all over the globe. So fresh and funky and way cooler that wearing a Dora or Cinderella tee. Our favorite? Siena, the secret agent from Italy …she sports some stylish glasses and looks very smart indeed. Each shirt comes with a little blurb of your agents secret powers…so funny! Who do we think would love these tees? Why the Joilie-Pitt girls of course. Shiloh and Z would rock these tees and look hip doing so. Have a sneak peek at Gohgirl’s snazzy creations at www.gohgirl.com Watch out boys…here come some smart girls!
Oh, and P.S…they are having a major sale right now.
What makes our day? Finding gorgeous lounge clothes that make being a mommy and breastfeeding a little more comfortable and glamorous. If ya look good, you feel better…it’s a simple fact. We just heard about Queen Bee, a brilliant Aussie online boutique that has a really pretty nursing cami that we just needed to own. When you are feeding your new baby every couple of hours you need to wear clothes that provide easy access, and this classy and feminine cami does just that. Wearing attractive clothes after having a baby makes you feel special and pretty which is just what you need when you’re super tired and can’t even remember the last time you shaved your legs. We like wearing ours with black flared yoga pants, or dark capris jeans if we’re meeting the mommies for lattes. Throw a light cashmere shrug over it to dress it up a little. Love how easy the clasps open for feedings and the generous length provides extra coverage while we work off the pregnancy pounds (and hides the fact that we still eat ice cream every night). Toss that baggy tee out, you deserve better momma! See all that Queen Bee has to offer at www.queenbee.com.au
