We’ve been through a lot of onsies in this house…and we know what we like and what we don’t. Usually we make that decision at 3am when we are changing a bum…if the onesie makes us mad we toss it. No questions asked. Who needs to fuss when your baby’s already fussing? Give us a soft, comfy onesie with a snug fit, throw in some jazzy colors to choose from and add natural bamboo fibers (and don’t forget buttons that actually snap shut) and we’ll be the happiest mommy on the block. That’s just what the fab folks at Continue reading
We’re sure by now you’ve heard that uber stylist Rachel Zoe is now a mommy. We’ve been dying to know what her nursery looks like, and know who designed it…and now we do! Continue reading
We have spoiled ourselves so much that nothing but the best will do…so thank goodness our package from Paigelauren Baby arrived in the mail the other day. We needed a luxury fix and we got it. Paigelauren makes the softest baby clothes we have ever felt…honest. Like butter. Debuting their fresh Fall line this past September, Paigelauren is getting a name as the brand to go for if you want style, comfort and baby clothes that are timeless. Love the classic lines, detailed stitching and practicality of the onesies, cardigans and rompers. The kimono long sleeve tee in rose is absolutely gorgeous and looks fabulous alone or layered over one of their classic white tees. can’t wait to see the Summer 2009 collection with it’s hip beach theme. Paigelauren’s modern and stylish clothes are designed and made in LA and sold in posh stores such as Nieman Marcus. We think you’ll agree that this line is worth all the fuss as you’ll be able to pass it down to the next baby due to the clothes fine quality and timeless look. They also have an organic collection for eco conscience babies. Go to www.paigelaurenbaby.com and just try to leave without owning some Paigelauren…you won’t be able to.
We are utterly addicted to finding the perfect baby sling. You could say we’re obsessed. We have tried out more slings than anyone ought to be allowed to and yes…we are very picky. We stumbled upon Serena & Lily’s Market Baby Sling when we saw pics of Nicole Kidman strolling through London with baby Sunday Rose wrapped up in their luxurious creation. Just look at the hand embroidered details and gorgeous shades of fabric they use…very drool worthy. We were also super impressed with how soft the organic lining is and that there are no snaps, rings or straps…just slip it on and away you go. Quite honestly it’s the baby sling we get the most compliments on while we stroll to the park and through the shops. Other hip celebs that make this classy sling a baby must have are Ethan Hawk, and Camila Alves. If you’re thinking of getting this sling for a baby shower gift you should know that it comes packaged in the most posh little box…makes all the difference and adds some “Ohh and Ahh” to your gift.

Designed in the Netherlands and finally available to North Americans, Cheekeyes are one of the most sought after gifts this year…and we’re tickled pink to have them under our tree. The Cheekeyes are handmade wooden animals that come in five educational and imaginative themes: Polar, Farm, Africa, Dino and Forrest. We went for the Polar set and also got the iceberg too as it is winter. Love the soothing shades of gray and the smooth safe edges. Very hip and very Euro indeed. We think this will keep our curious tot busy playing and learning for quite some time. It’s about time we mommies started saying no to loud plastic toys and go back to what’s simple and works. Cheekeyes does all that with a simple modern twist. We love the look and feel of it so much that we’ll be keeping this toy out on the coffee table well after bed time. Have a look at all five sets at www.oompa.com
We love things that come in tiny packages. Especially when the package is shiny, smells yummy and is vintage looking. Must be why we are smitten with our fabulous three pack of organic lip balms from Baby Bear Shop. Featured in this months British Vogue, and gifted to all those lucky celebs at the SAG awards (they must have lost my ticket in the mail…) Baby Bear is making quite a name for itself among the Hollywood crowd. In our stylish opinion, we think this is the “it” lip balm of the year. Love the smooth feel and the touch of shine it’s added to our lips. If we were forced to choose a favorite balm we’d have to pick the pomegranate. Perfect for all those stockings you need to stuff. Baby Bear Shop is also well known for their cult classic Cheeky Baby Butter, which we are utterly addicted to as well. Super hydrating and made with all things organic and plant derived like lavender oil and shea butter. Makes a fantastic massage cream and keeps your baby’s bum chap free. Even Nordstrom’s swanky spa is using it in their exclusive services. Have a look at all of Baby Bear’s mommy and baby skin products at www.babybearshop.com
It’s time to start thinking about Christmas momma….you just can’t put it off any longer. To avoid the stress and lineups, we stay clear of the mall and have been doing some shopping at Oompa Toys. We like to shop at night, online, with a yummy glass of Shiraz, when the kids are tucked in…you can’t do that at the mall. Our favorite find at Oompa? The Chalet DollHouse by Plan Toys. It’s this super cool wooden house that comes in two units, one with three floors and the second with two floors. Your wee one can use their imagination to decide how to arrange them. Love that it’s made of natural rubber wood and free of nasty chemicals. The furniture that it comes with is hip and modern…makes you want to redo your own house. So ditch the local mall mommy and sit back with you fave beverage and shop away in style like us at www.oompa.com
Everyday around 4 o’clock we have high tea at our house. The 2 year old gets out her best dishes and serves mommy plastic cake and cookies. Yum. Since this is a daily ritual, it’s time she had a fabulous tea set to play with. With all the fuss over the chemicals found in toys these days we were so relieved to find GREEN TOYS. They’re a fabulous company that uses recycled milk jugs to make toys that are BPA, phathalates,and lead free. Love the girly pastel shades and how durable the pieces feel. Who knew you could save the earth while sharing tea with your tot? Go green with this modern little tea set at www.greentoys.com
New Native Baby Pouches are showing up all over Hollywood and New York on the most A list of celebs. We couldn’t help but notice, and since it’s good enough for Brad and Angie, we though we should try this popular baby carrier out ourselves. We have one of New Native’s organic carriers in natural twill with a gorgeous poppy trim. First off, we have to say it is so soft. Like butter. No worries about rough material on baby’s face here. We also really love that it’s so simple to use. No hooks, rings or snaps. Busy mommies need simplicity, and this carrier has that and loads of classy style. Who else has a New Native Baby Pouch? The fabulous Keri Russell and new daddy Matthew McConaughey. Perfect for a stroll in the park, or for an active day around the city. Besides looking fabulous with all of our outfits (yes, that is important mommies), this carrier folds up super small so it fits into our diaper bag easily. Carry your baby like Angelina at www.newnativebaby.com
It’s true mommies, you just can’t own enough organic tee shirts…or pants for that matter. We’re always on the hunt for fabulous organic clothes for our little tots and our latest fab find is Chapter One Organics. We fell for their Earthlux Lounge Set in Olive. So soft and comfy with a modern graphic. Perfect outfit for a crisp Fall walk, or snuggling and sipping hot chocolate. Love the eggplant and red clay shades they use too. They also make stylish onesies and rompers with hip patters and brilliant details. Our favorite is the Groovy Pink Dress. It’s simply gorgeouse. The best part? Chapter One Organics has their earth friendly clothing made in the US by women who have had significant barriers to employment. How fantastic is that? So, like we said….be good, shop organically when you can as every little bit does help. Chapter One will help ya look stylish while you’re doing good at www.chapteroneorganics.com.
