Now that summer is nearly here, we are on the hunt for hip tank tops for our tots. Nothing too cute…no trendy crossbones, and frilly lace is an absolute no-no. We want modern colors and original graphics that appeal to us and our rambunctious crew. So happy that celeb fave Milkshaxs has heard our cries for smart baby apparel. This fantastic Canadian company has a new Spring line that has knocked our wooly winter socks off. Our two absolute musts for summer are the Beccy’s Shoes tank and the Surfboards tee. Both designs are sophisticated yet very kid friendly. Love the soft feel and fit of their clothes and the fact that most creations are made with bamboo or organic cotton. Style mixed with tree hugging eco friendliness…nothing better than that. Get some Milkshaxs in time for the summer waves and rays. You will be as pleased as we are. Promise.
We like a shoe that let’s our little girl run on the field, jump in the air and skip rope till dinner time. We need style and function…leave the frills, bows and cartoon designs at the mall. AhnuFootwear is our new best friend and they have such fab shoes for tots that we decided to try out a pair for our tired feet too. We picked the Ginny, a brilliant all day slip on that made our tired mommy tootsies very happy. Love the soft neutral tones and the non slip soles ( very important while chasing your child through the playground). For kids shoes we went with the Benicia, a great little mary jane style that looks very fresh and modern. It keeps our darling comfy with flexibility and a very supportive arch. We both look pretty snazzy in our new Spring shoes if we do say so ourselves. Very “mommy & me” minus the cute and with more style. Ahnu is also an eco conscience company that uses sustainable products such as hemp and bamboo in their shoes. Their packaging is recycled and they support the Conservation Alliance…how wonderful is that? Get high performance footwear and a healthy dose of modern style at www.ahnufootwear.com
Want to win a snazzy pair of Ahnu shoes for your little one? We have two pairs of the Benicia to give away. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us the four different shades it comes in. Two random winners will be picked, so get your answer in by May 11/09. Best of luck mommies!
We like to treat ourselves a little for Mother’s day. We always pick out a little something special to enjoy on that special day. Why not? We’ve worked hard and we know we deserve it. This year we thought Mama Mio would hit the spot….and we opened our treat a little early. Couldn’t resist. What did we indulge in? Their multitasking rescue balm called Wonder-Full Balm and their delightful Gravida Candle. The Wonder Balm has been going fast around here as you can use it for your parched lips, rough elbows and cracked heals. Can you tell we need a moisturizing miracle? We’ve even caught the husband sneaking a squirt or two. With all those natural oils and omega goodness it’s also perfect for little scrapes and ouchies. The candle has been a fab addition to the nightly bubble bath too. After the wee ones are tucked in, we need to unwind and relax. Add a glass of delicious red, dim the lights and light up Mama Mio’s luxe little candle…don’t forget to lock the door and let daddy deal with all the post bedtime drama. Check out the Mother’s Day deals (like a free Moisturizing Shower Cream) and brilliant body products at celeb mom fave Mama Mio. Your cracked heals will thank you.
Want to save on your next Mama Mio order? Click here and Celebrity Baby Clothes readers will get a gift certificate worth $10 towards their purchase. Very fabulous.
Want to win some Wonder-Full Balm to help soften those lips? Go to Mama Mio and tell us three ingredients they use in making their popular Wonder-Full Balm. It’s that easy. Email your answer to email@example.com by May 8th.
We have found over the years that you pay for what you get. Cheap shoes equal sore feet and major tantrums. Our solution? Buy shoes for your tot that will stand up to the demanding test. So worth it momma. Seriously. Where do we shop for our wee one’s shoes? At Vincent Shoes, darling…where else? We have never had a problem or complaint from our toddler when she wears their hip and happenin’ styles. Our latest obsession is their Kim covered toe sandal and the Emma ballet flat…ohh and their Chrissy is a must have for any girl with a bit of adventure in her. The Emma is perfect for summer weddings and dress up with mommy and teddy. Love that the strap is removable. It lets you dress down an outfit when necessary and pair it with a twirly skirt and summer tank. Easy peasy. So momma, when it comes to shoes, don’t think less is more. Get the right fit, look and style,just like us at www.vincentshoestore.us
PS: We had a peak at their stunning rain boots for Spring…and we want them ALL! Greedy yes…but just wait till you see them momma!
Finding original and hip clothes for our little boy has been a challenge. So tired of all the baseballs and pirate ships on tee shirts. Where’s the imagination and style factor? Well we think we may have found it at Two Blue Cars, a really fresh company that those in the know shop for fabulous tees for the little men in their life. Our favorite design has to be the Robot Boy & His Dog. Very modern and clever so it’ll appeal to both you and your adventurous boy. The cut is unisex so these tees and onesies are perfect for stylish little girls too that like to show their good taste with a monorail or chopper (our other favorite). Have a look at Two Blue Car’s entire line at www.twobluecars.com …we think you’ll agree with us that they have the freshest designs.
Contest Time Momma: Now that you’ve had a chance to snoop around Two Blue Car’s site, let us know the two designs that you MUST have and if we pick your name at random you’ll win those two tees! It’s that easy. Never won anything before? Well here’s your chance. Email us your answer at firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday at midnight (Feb 3/09).

Once Halloween is over and all the candy is gone and the pumpkins are smashed, the weather takes a huge nosedive south…it’s so cold all of the sudden. It’s boot time mom, and we love the new cold weather offerings from Robeez. Have you had a look at their Cozy Collection? The boots with the faux fur are perfect for the little rock star of the house. Warmth and style all in one. Truly fabulous. We think they’d look perfect on Gwen’s new little Zuma Nesta, don’t you? We also went for their classic leather upper booties in brown this year. Easy to slip on (moms need all the “easies” we can get) and the beige and cream lining is classic and timeless. Perfect for boys and girls, as they are so durable you’ll be able to hand them down to your next little bundle. Robeez have become wardrobe staples for the little people in our house. Browsing their site we also noticed they have these brilliant gift packs with shoes and 4 pairs of socks. Christmas shopping just got a wee bit easier for us. Have a look at www.robeez.com and just try not to fall for those cosy booties…we betcha can’t!
We admit that we are a little bit addicted to Robeez , and when they come out with a new style we feel quite excited. Hardly a week goes by that there isn’t a snapshot of a celeb baby wearing a cool pair of comfy Robeez…Marcia Cross and her twins seems to be as smitten with them as we are! You smart mommies know that when you find a reliable company that you like and trust, you stick with it….so tired of getting home from the shops with shoes for our children and finding that the fit is off, or they just don’t handle wear and tear well. So, you can see why we let out a yelp of joy when Robeez introduced their new Mini Shoez line…still with the soft flexible sole, but they have that “real shoe” look. We went for their laced boots in Periwinkle with chocolate brown details and laces. Love how they jazz up our little man’s outfits. Even our little boy has better shoes than his mommy! See the new line at www.robeez.com
Today, Robeez launched its “Dream Show Wardrobe Contest.” One lucky winner will receive the grand prize of a dream shoe wardrobe from Robeez valued at $500. There are 10 secondary prizes of two pairs of Robeez footwear of your choice. Contest closes October 5, 2008. Enter at http://www.robeez.com/contest.aspx.
Good Luck Mommies!
It’s hip, it’s stylish and it’s ours! The LEO by uber brilliant VINCENT SHOES is THE shoe to own this season. With it’s wide and bold stripes, this shoe makes miles of statement, whether on the playground or out with mommy at the cafe. We chose the navy stripes and they’ve been on our tot’s feet since the day they arrived. They really help pull together that Fall trendy look of mixing patterns. We like to mix our striped Vincents up with sophisticated floral tops and polkadot leggings. Daring and fun at the same time. The possibilities are endless with the right shoe, and we found it.
