Great breastfeeding dresses – But no one has to know but you and the baby

The one summer wardrobe staple I missed wearing when I was breastfeeding was a simple, easy dress. (Yeah, not too many of us are willing to lift an entire dress over our heads in public.) But these days, there are so many cool options for nursing moms, like the new collection from CMP fave Milk Nursingwear. And even better, these dresses won’t break your budget.  I’m partial to the smocked waist nursing dress, which can be dressed up or down, easily taking right through summer and into fall. I really like how the crisscross neck allows you to nurse easily,...

Trend alert: Balloon dogs!

Jeff Koons may have popularized the balloon dog as pop art icon, but as a figure in so many of our own childhoods, its no wonder we’re starting to see all kinds of artists and brands finding inspiration in them. Here are a few super cute balloon dogs that are finding their way into home decor and modern design. Balloon dog wall decals? Magical! These, from CMP fave Wall Candy Arts, look like they’re floating around the room. The set comes with all five colors that you can reuse and reposition. And the best part–no long line of other...

A DIY Father’s Day gift, no crafty genes required

As much as I love to give my husband a handmade DIY Father’s Day gift from the kids, I’m not the craftiest person in the world. They make their own cards and we call it a day. But after discovering this awesome DIY gift idea, I think I might have the kids forgo the cards and help them make this instead.  This awesome photo book design project from Design Aglow is so simple even I can do it. Really. Using their Interactive Guest Book feature, designer Ashley Campbell created a unique photo book that I’m pretty sure any dad will love....

What? We’re recommending a cover album for kids? Why yes indeedy!

We are not generally fans of albums of popular music covered by band that dumb down the music for kids–or worse, have kids sing the music. I’ll take my Beatles sung by the Beatles, thanks very much. That said, I was nervous when I heard about LA duo Renee & Jeremy‘s CD of cover songs, especially since it included picks from REM and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. Now there is no question in my mind that few voices in kids’ music sound more perfect together than these two, with their gorgeous harmonies that are ideal for those times when...

Clothes for tween girls that you’ll both like

One of the biggest requests we get these days are for clothes for tween girls that aren’t slutty. (Their words, not mine. Okay, mine too.) It should not be so hard to dress a ten year-old like a ten year-old, right? Well I’ve discovered a beautiful, classy collection of girls’ wear out of Australia and bonus–it’s on sale right now. At One Sunday, you’ll find lovely dresses, skirts, tanks and shorts for 8-14 year olds, all designed and ethically produced in Sydney by designer Henrietta Cheshire. I’m loving her sensibility–so classic and pretty, but not stuffy at all. And...

Reef rash just got fashionable. Thanks, Cynthia Rowley!

Cynthia Rowley’s back in the Band-Aid business, and this time, she skipped the mall and gone straight to the beach. If you recall the last Cynthia Rowley Band-Aids, you’ll know how quickly these blingy bandages are going to sell out. The collection features eight sunny, colorful designs from sunsets to sharks to, no suprise here– the designer’s logo. (Your call on that one.) They’re available only in the Cynthia Rowley Beach Sport Kit, which also includes Neosporin single use packets, and a waterproof, resealable plastic pouch that’s apparently pretty handy for keeping your smartphone dry. They are a little pricey...

Disney Pixar Summer Movie weekend – $6 movies, whoo!

As much as I’m excited about spending Memorial Day weekend outside with my family, I anticipate we’ll need a little break from the pool and the 90 degree heat here in Atlanta. So I’m happy to have this awesome Pixar movie promotion on my radar just in case we need a little rest and relaxation.  This weekend only, you can see four of your favorite Disney Pixar movies exclusively at AMC Theatres for $6. If you missed seeing Up, Wall-E, Ratatouille, or the much loved Toy Story 3 on the big screen, now’s your chance. Hooray for good movies. And air...

Marc Jacobs honors kids with two daddies, or two mommies. And we honor Marc Jacobs.

Obviously, we’ve got Father’s Day on the brain lately. Which means we’re also thinking about fathers of all kinds. Like single dads. And those dads with a second loving dad at home. Evidently, Marc Jacobs is in the same place. So we’re standing up and applauding this beautiful t-shirt he’s created for those very kids. This limited edition organic cotton tee reads If Dad Says No…Ask Dad, and was designed by Jacobs to support the Human Rights Campaign. In fact, a full 100% of the profits go towards the HRC effort towards LGBT equality. (Go, Marc!) It’s a limited edition, with only...

On Father’s Day, just remember the way to a man’s heart is not always through his remote control.

While you can expect a lot more ideas for dads in our upcoming Father’s Day Gift Guide series, we couldn’t wait to share this awesome one for the food-loving father in your life. After all, isn’t that all of them? (Seriously, a love of food must be a requisite for procreation. I’ve yet to see otherwise.) I am completely obsessed with the new website, New York Mouth, which offers all kinds of indie-minded gourmet gift baskets mostly sourced from local NY area purveyors, as you might have guessed from the name. Best of all, it’s available to those of...
