Playrooms and children’s bedrooms can get out of hand, can’t they mom? Little toys scattered about and always finding there way under the bed. No need to fret and stew over it, you just need some fab storage solutions from us. We just received plain mary’s European Nesting Suitcases in preppy green and can’t believe what a difference they made in our tot’s room. These brill mini suitcases are made with eco-friendly fiber board and have a recyclable plastic handle, not to mention they came in the most stunning shades with decorative stitching along the sides. No more stepping on lego and crayons in our house, and Barbie even has her own space for her endless supply of heels and ball gowns. Celeb mommies Camila Alves and Jennifer Lopez are well known plain mary fans, and we think you will be too.
We fell for them years ago with their debut line of ultra slick and very functional strollers. Now that they’ve come out with a fabulous new collection featuring the brilliant designs from timi & leslie ( yes THE timi & leslie that make those really gorgeous diaper bags we salivate over) we think we just may have to declare our love of Baby Planet again. We have been wheeling about town in their very urban and too chic MacKenzie ride. Not only does it look super cool, but it’s so easy to lift and fold up…a momma’s dream. The feature our tot seems to most like is the adjustable leg support…perfect for nap time while we stroll around the neighborhood. The dark color hides the days mishaps and the reversible seat cover not only adds extra comfort, but looks stylish and covers the secret messes as well (how many Goldfish crackers do you vacuum in a day?). Best part is that you can pair it with one of timi & leslie’s coveted matching diaper bags. You and your tot will be too stylish for words.

We have to admit….we’ve been stealing again from the kids. We received some fabulous baby body care products from Babo Botanicals and can’t keep our hands off of them. Sure we let them use a little, but we are too weak while having a bath to resist the yummy smell and clean feeling these all natural products leave. Featured in In Style magazine , Babo Botanicals is full of natural goodness and made on an organic farm in the US. They keep the icky chemicals out and fill their creations with pure flower and plant extracts. We got to test out the Berry Primrose line and fell head over heals for the scent. Love the results too. Our toddlers have less tangles and easier to manage locks…more time to play and less time fussing. Perfect.
Summer is all about fun family BBQs, weddings, and birthday parties. You and your kid’s social calender will be full, so better sort out finding the most fabulous party dresses now. Vancouver’s Redfish Clothing is our go to place when we want an original, inspiring and super fun party dress for our little girl. Our pick for this season is the Lucky Dress. So stunning with it’s fancy polka dot belt and bold striped pattern. We like that you can pair it with some leggings and a sweater for cooler days and dress it up with some sparkly shoes for special occasions…versatile and stylish…music to mommy’s ears. Redfish Clothing also makes gorgeous skirts, tops, onesies and spiffy threads for boys too. Now that you’ve got the wee one’s sorted out, you’ll have time to shop for your summer party clothes too.
When stylish mommies like Heidi Klum and Kate Hudson (did she or didn’t she?…either way she looks fab) choose to dress their tots in the hip designs from City Threads, we should all breathe a sigh of relief. Proof that not all celeb mommies take it to the “couture level” and drain the bank account for a playdate outfit…some use their mommy smarts and pick clothes that are durable, comfy and modern, like the collection at City Threads. Our own tiny rebel is wearing the Rock tee in charcoal gray. Love the nautical star design which is very trendy this season. Just edgy enough to get a smile but not too grown up either. We paired our new tee with their Soft Twill Cargo Shorts in red…looks sharp together. Now only if the weather would cooperate and get warm enough for shorts. City Threads Spring and Sumer line is made for the playground, beach and adventurous days out with mommy and daddy. Just don’t be disappointed that your wee one will be better dressed than you.
SHirin NYC is a line we fell in love with back in December with their gorgeous designs and couture like tee shirts. We feel honored and lucky to get to review and feature them again for summer. This time around we thought we’d give this “mommy & me” theme a try. Using oatmeal gray and champagne hems along with rouched wastes and stunning prints, we think SHirin is soon going to be on every A-List mommy and toddler in Hollywood. Our favorite from the new collection? Their Cotton Plant Puff dress for mommy and the mini version from the kids line. Perfect all year round really as you can pair them with leggings and a sweet cardi for cooler days and put on heels or flip flops for breezy summer strolls. All you have to worry about is what you’ll say to Gwyneth and Apple when you run into each other dressed in the same stylish outfit. Tell her you got yours at Arte Bebe.
Contest Time: As a special treat in honor of Mother’s Day, Arte Bebé and Shirin NYC are holding a special promotion and giving away three SHirin women tops. The promotion is from May 6th to May 20th during which time women can enter the sweepstakes at http://artebebe.com (no purchase necessary) and the winners will be drawn at random on May 21st.
If Carrie Bradshaw has kids we think they’ll shop at Vincent Shoes. Top of the line, hip designs and comfy enough for your active toddlers feet. The latest Vincent shoe that we’ve added to our collection is The Connie. We went for the bright fuchsia design because it was the perfect combo of active sportiness and modern style. Sassy enough to pair with a flowery summer skirt and rough and tumble enough to stay at the playground all day. Love the easy double velcro straps…makes getting ready in the morning so much more pleasant and stress free…what else could a busy mommy want?
You never know what you’ve been missing till after you have it. In our case it was a fabulous baby bathtub. We’ve been using a very appreciated second hand tub for our wee ones. It never occurred to us that even a baby tub can be stylish and functional…until we heard about the Flexi Bathfrom Europe made by the hip Danish folks at Real Cool World. Available in North America only since April (you could be one of the first to have one) ,it comes in gorgeous colors and had a no slip bottom. Best part? It folds up flat so you can store it under a bed, in a cupboard or on a shelf. You can use your space more efficiently and be even more organized…or don’t fold it up ever just so you can show your too brilliant for words baby tub to all your mommy friends. Perfect for small spaces and it would make very a memorable baby shower gift. Promise.
