Misogynists, Read No Further

Misogynists, Read No Further

When my daughter was born, I made a vow: no clothing with sayings like future hottie or future runway model. I mean come on, she’s a baby. Not a bulimic-in-training. Apparently I’m not alone in my convictions. TIred of all the negative, sexual, and...
All That Glitters

All That Glitters

I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve been living in Mississippi too long (the pizazz capital of the world), or if I’m really a 3-year-old trapped in a woman’s body – but in either case, I heart glitter. However, as a new mama and a...
Jesus Christ, Fashion Superstar

Jesus Christ, Fashion Superstar

We’ve come to that time of year when all not-so-good Christians, including me, make their annual pilgrimage to the big house for cleansing and renewal. But just because I don’t go to church on a regular basis doesn’t mean I don’t think Jesus...
There’s a New Shoe in Town

There’s a New Shoe in Town

If I see another baby wearing those ubiquitous soft-leather soled shoes, I may lose it. Sure the fairy princesses and blue songbirds are kind of cute, but let’s face it, they’re getting overplayed. And if you’re anything like me, it’s kind of...
Attention Future Rock Stars

Attention Future Rock Stars

Handstitched and cool – two words that perk up our ears at Cool Mom Picks. So it’s not surprising at all that we’re enamoured of 60 Bugs, a website whose tagline is, appropriately, handstitched coolness. Designer Debbie Lee hand-embroiders bibs,...
Hey, There’s Shmutz on This Bib!

Hey, There’s Shmutz on This Bib!

With Passover just around the corner, we searched far and wide for a great item for baby’s first Seder. We stopped when we found this clever cotton bib. Shmutz (Yiddish for a little mess) will pretty much sum up the state of affairs if your little mensch takes a...
Loungin’ Out In Style

Loungin’ Out In Style

There’s nothing like a crazy day of nursing and sleeping to tire out even the busiest babies. Nothing feels better than tearing off that tight, dirty onesie and slipping on something way more comfortable – say a Lounge Set by Janel and Amy at Abe Jones....
The Pros of Cons

The Pros of Cons

As a teenager in the 80s, I was rarely seen without my black Chuck Taylor high-tops with the anarchy A scrawled on the toes. The kicks have since given way to something a bit more fashion-backward (and more supportive in the arches), but I still yearn for the hipster...
Binky Bling

Binky Bling

Admit it, the only reason to stick around for the whole gift-opening shebang at baby showers is to make sure no present receives bigger oohs and ahhs than yours. Let’s just say your title of World’s Most Awesome Gift Giver will never be challenged when the hipster...
Those Other Shoes Are so 2005…

Those Other Shoes Are so 2005…

The soft leather soles of those cutie-booties just don’t cut it on our hard bumpy local sidewalks. And so we’ve upgraded to Pedoodles wonderful leather shoes, made with a seamless footbed and their trademarked PedFlex rubber soles. Not only do Pedoodles...
