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...

Blow Your Refund (or at least part of it)

We know you probably already have every single penny of your tax refund budgeted for the rest of the fiscal year. And being like-minded moms, we bet you most likely didn’t set aside any part of that on something for yourself. So today we’ve decided to give...
All the Small Things

All the Small Things

Being the big tall girl that I am, I tend to gravitate towards clunky heels and big bags. However, when it comes to men (height people, HEIGHT) and jewelry, I’m a sucker for small and fabulous. So, I’ve set aside a little bit of my surprisingly large tax...
Go Ahead, Put Your Refund Right Into Your Purse

Go Ahead, Put Your Refund Right Into Your Purse

… Or Diaper bag. Because most likely you keep your wallet where you keep your diapers. Remember when you rocked your it-bag Balenciaga? Your Louis Vuitton Speedy? Your whatever else was hot and hip prebaby? Remember when you actually followed fashion? HA! I...

Cute as Kit

After reading Winnie the Pooh and Curious George two times a day for how many weeks, I think we are all ready for a change. So I ordered a set of Kit Allen’s children’s books. His simple yet fabulous set of four books on each of the seasons are peppered...
Tastes Like Chicken

Tastes Like Chicken

I have a great set of hand-me-down dishes from my childhood ‚Äì plates, cups, teapots, silverware — the works. However, there’s one big problem when my girls try to have a pretend picnic or tea party: no play food to speak of. I’ve been looking for...
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,...
