When you have more then one child, your diaper bag needs change. You have to have a versatile carrier that can keep all of your baby items, your toddler must haves and your mamma essentials organized and ready at a moments notice. Organized being very key. We think we’ve found the mother of all diaper bags that can do all that and looks amazingly chic. We’re talking strolling along a Parisian boulevard chic…walking through Central Park chic…jet setting to the Med chic…you get the point. The Mirano from Pacapod has all the function a mommy needs and combines it with heaps of style. Perfect for Spring and Summer as it has a real nautical look and feel. Ours came in a chalk hue, and they also have a gorgeous navy shade. Made of natural fabrics and super soft leather this bag is a bit lux but totally worth it. What sets Pacapod apart from all the rest is the discreet compartment that houses two pods, a case for all your diapering needs and a pod for all your tots snacks and bottles. The pods are detachable making the Mirano a fantastic bag for an overnight stay for mommy & daddy (…like that will ever happen again). Even the most disorganized momma will be totally ready to go with this well thought out bag . There’s even a spot for mom’s iPad and Vogue. Who new being organized could be so much fun?
If there’s any Daddies reading, we totally think this bag would make a fabulous Mother’s day gift…fill it up with all of baby’s needs and stash some extra mommy gifts in the pockets too…we’ll let her think it was all your idea.
Have a look at the PacaPod Videos below to get a feel for what you’ve been missing.

It’s getting cold and nippy out there mommy…time to get the warm blankets out and cuddle up. What baby blankets are we super sussed about this season? The fabulous designs and creations from Big Fat Hen, a family run company that makes gorgeous baby blankets, and organic sleep sacks. We have their unbelievable soft blanket in Lily’s Flowers…so pretty, and just the perfect size for our stroller and car seat. We also think it makes a brilliant play mat for when baby is having a bit of tummy time, as they can gaze at the bright patterns or feel and rub the soft fabric on the underside. Very functional. Gifted to fancy stars like Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew McConaughey, these blankets are sure to impress even your fussiest mommy friend, and make a stylish, yet practical gift.
As any busy mommy on the go will tell you, a diaper bag can make or break your day. Parents need a bag that’s comfy to carry, has heaps of room and looks fabulously modern. If you feel the same way we do then you’ll want an Alpha Sherpa Bag from the very popular and well respected (and parent run company) Baby Sherpa. We wanted a bag that could handle enough gear for two toddlers and have a modern urban look…we found it with our fabulous Alpha. Rugged, tough as nails and so comfy to carry, we must say we are smitten. Best part has to be the soft cooler bottom compartment that keeps our tots snacks and lunch chilled while we trek around town and on our weekend family hikes. Also making us very happy is the padded space for our lap top…makes this blogging job easier to take on the road. Love the sharp look and the numerous pockets to store small necessities like our cell phone and keys…and the kind folk at Baby Sherpa even left enough room for us stylish mommies to bring along a thermos full of espresso, our weekly People mag and a fancy lip balm. Finally, a baby bag we can all share.
We saved the best for last mommas….we have one Alpha Sherpa for one super lucky reader. Email us at email@example.com and tell us the three types of bags that Baby Sherpa makes…we already told you about our favorite. Contest ends September, 25th at midnight. Good Luck!
Shopping online for childrens clothing is just about the smartest mommy tip we can hand along to you. It’s fast, easy, and very satisfying. There’s no temper tantrums to deal with (at least till the visa bill comes…)…you don’t have to spend a sunny day at the dreaded mall and you can do it in the comfort of your home, snuggled up on the couch sipping a yummy coffee (or needed glass of vino). One of our favorite places to shop is Little Milk Junkie. They carry the creme de la creme of kids clothes and the service is divine. Our latest purchase? The Navy & White Striped Dress from Petit Bateau. It’s a true classic, easy to wash and wear and looks fabulous paired with dark denim capris or alone with sun kissed bare feet. You can bet we’ll be back for more from their collection of threads from Kate Mac and Charlie Rocket. So momma, after they’re all tucked in, flip on the computer, pour whatever keeps you going and have a look at all the fab clothes at Little Milk Junkie. You will thank us later.
Why settle for less when you can have it all? Style and function can peacefully co-exist if you know where to look or who to ask. Being a baby gear expert has taught us to never settle for looks alone…however tempting. Darling Droolers is one of our favorite mommy owned companies that makes gorgeous baby gear that really does the job. They make bibs, change mats, burp clothes and blankets that feel as luxurious as they look. We have their reversible bibs with the velcro closure. Super absorbent and perfect for wearing to that swanky little cafe with mommy. Thank goodness they wash well, cause we are a bit addicted to how fabulous they are….should have ordered more. Darling Droolers hand makes their creations in the US and their attention to detail is what sets them apart from the rest. See what has former bachelorette and mommy of two Trista Sutter impressed at www.darlingdroolers.com

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.

Decorating your child’s room can be challenging. You want it to look fun and inviting, while displaying some of mommy’s style too. You want a little of your chic taste mixed with their adventurous imagination. We found a fabulous design company called Whistle & Wink that keeps both the toddler and I happy when it comes to decorating her room. We went with their Toile China Doll theme and simply love it. The quality is top of the line, the pattern is classy and adds a retro Asian flare to her room. We especially love the hand stitched pink Nightingale Pillow. It’s absolutely gorgeous and brings the whole room together. Pillows make a great starter piece when you’re trying to decide how to decorate your tot’s room. This timeless pillow could inspire you in so many ways. Have a peek at Whistle & Wink‘s gorgeous creations at www.whistleandwink.com
