There are very few things better then a delicious cupcake. If the cupcake happens to be from Sprinkles Cupcakes, a celebrity mom well known favorite (yes, we’re talking about you Katie), then even better. We were invited to try out Sprinkles Royal Baby Gender Reveal Cupcakes today in Chicago. Everyone is anticipating the birth of the new prince or princess and Sprinkles has a creative and yummy take on the lead up to Kate having her baby…gorgeously decorated chocolate or vanilla cupcakes topped with a crown that are either filled with blue or pink cream. The cupcakes will be available until Kate & William’s baby is born, then Sprinkles Cupcakes will start baking “It’s a Boy” or “It’s a Girl” cupcakes for the entire week following the birth. How fabulous is that? We only hope that Kate is lucky enough to have a few specially delivered to her before her delivery day…and in case you are wondering we “had a girl”. Most delicious cupcakes ever.
Let’s face it, all you want is to be super comfy while you nurture and nourish your new little baby. When you’re breastfeeding, what you wear can make all the difference in comfort and attitude. That’s why we are so excited we heard about Milk Nursing Wear. They make these really gorgeous nursing clothes that truly make you feel extra pretty and extra comfortable. We fell in love with their empire waisted Braided Nightgown from the ecoMilk line. So flattering and perfect for those first few days in the hospital when you have tons of visitors…might as well look good while in you entertain in your jammies we say. We went for the bold raspberry shade to brighten up these gray winter days…but the purple is just as eye catching…maybe we should have gotten both. The empire seam lifts easily for feedings and the nighty also has inner pockets for the all important nursing pads (another nursing essential!). Have a look at their creations and you’ll be adding to your nursing wardrobe just like us…don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Now that the holidays are well over and Valentines Day is a mess of red chocolate boxes shoved under your unmade bed, don’t you think it’s time to take control and do something that makes you look (hot) and feel better? We felt the same way and started using our Bootcamp For Butts gift pack from the super fabulous Mama Mio. A celeb fave (Tori and Christina are known fans) and must have, Mama Mio has been our best friend since we had our first baby. These ladies know skin care and have created a line that keeps mamas and mamas-to-be looking gorgeous and more importantly feeling better. The Bootcamp For Butts has been our daily ritual for 30 days and we must say our bum has never looked better (well, perhaps when we were 17, but that’s another story). The brilliant kit comes with a yummy exfoliator, a necessary toner for your tummy and this brilliant cream called Shrink To Fit. It smells delish and really makes your cellulite appear less “cellulity”. We can’t even find places on our bottom that we used to fuss about…where did the cellulite go? Beauty bible Elle magazine added it to there 50 Hero Products list. We agree. Bootcamp also includes a quick exercise program that makes your bum toned and looking very “pre baby-ish”. This little miracle box paired with diligent application helped us get beach ready and feel in control of our saggy bits.
Want a new bum for the summer? Well we can’t promise quite that, however we can help you smooth, tone and feel pretty with our contest giveaway. Go to the Mama Mio product page and tell us 3 products you’ve used or would like to use from Mama Mio and email us at email@example.com. We’ll send one random and lucky winner a Bootcamp For Butts. It’s that easy…good luck!
Yes, gone are the days of big yellow bows on the bosom of your unflattering maternity shirt momma. Nowadays, the words style and maternity can go hand in hand if you know where to shop…and we’re always in the know on where to find fab maternity wear. Our latest pregnancy craving found us shopping at Isabella Oliver, a brilliant company based in London that creates the most gorgeous, modern and easy to wear pregnancy clothes you’ll find anywhere. The fabrics hug where they’re supposed to and the cuts are amazingly flattering. Our favorite piece? Their hip little wrap dress. Love the ruffles and classy bracelet sleeves. It comes in four different shades and we went with the bold plum. Perfect for a Holiday brunch or a night on the town before your new bambino arrives. Celebrity moms that have sported Isabella Oliver to accentuate their gorgeous baby curves are Minnie Driver, Gwen Stefani and everyone’s favorite feisty little republican Elizabeth Hasselbeck.

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
You know the feeling…your 8 months pregnant and you have NOTHING to wear! The horror!

Made of super soft, weathered looking cotton, this tee will help give your maternity wardrobe a little style boost.
