Chairish: Shop the country’s coolest vintage shops, all from your couch

I love going to my local flea market or browsing the rows of antique stores downtown to score some cool vintage finds for my house. There’s just something special about furniture that has history. Or, just having furniture that doesn’t come in a flat-packed box, to be honest. But honestly, how often do any of us get to spend our weekends at swap meets after having kids? Well now you can find very cool vintage finds at Chairish, an online marketplace where you can shop all kinds of vintage furniture, decor, and even jewelry and accessories from individual sellers and boutiques across the country. It’s been around...

7 smart, surprising ways to help you cut your spending right now

It’s probably no surprise that I have a penchant for shopping, but for about the last six months in particular, I’ve actually been trying to cut back, seeing as how we’ve now got braces, and summer camp, and hopefully a family vacation to save for. I’m not an overspender, but I admit I do make the extra trip to Starbucks for a coffee when I could easily just make a cup at home (there’s value in getting out of the house when you work at home a lot); and I do have a hard time passing up a hot pair of platform sandals...

Online shopping: One of our favorite #UnguiltyPleasures

Next up in our series of #UnguiltyPleasures (you did catch us confessing all our binge watching secrets, right?) is online shopping. And yes, that’s probably kind of obvious considering what we do here at Cool Mom Picks. But we just love how little treats for yourself can go a long way toward making you feel fantastic, and those small indulgences are something far too many women feel guilty about. Sometimes we moms do get to put ourselves first, right? Helping us share our next #UnguiltyPleasures video with you is our sponsor Kindle Love Stories, a thriving online community where you can purchase recommended romance reads in...

Cage sandals, now for the littlest trend setters

If you look for a balance between stylish shoes for your girls, but also want something practical and durable, because you know, running and climbing and playing something I hear is called “chase the boys” that I don’t want to know much more about — I’m really happy to see the impressively fashion-forward cage sandals for girls now at Umi.

Go Minted! It’s your birthday! And a special discount to celebrate.

We’ve all been huge fans and supporters of Minted long before they were a Cool Mom Picks sponsor, so it seems hard to believe that they are turning seven! It’s no surprise their ever-growing collection of stationery, invitations, and gifts designed by indie artists around the world are so popular with parents, including us. They really are some of the most beautifully designed options that we see anywhere. So in honor of the big Minted birthday celebration (aw, seven is such a fun year), they’re offering a special store-wide discount on everything. We’ve gone through and picked some of our own personal favorites on...

9 adorably modern Easter dresses for girls, all under 50.

When I look around for girls’ Easter dresses, there’s a whole lot of smocking and seersucker and box pleats and classic peter pan collars. Which can be utterly adorable, of course. (Is any little girl not super cute when she’s all dressed up? Exactly.) Even so, not everyone is quite so traditional or dressy on Easter. So I thought I’d put together a few more modern options for Easter dresses for girls that are all pretty without being fussy. I love all nine of these dresses — the shapes, the colors, the patterns,  the styling. The best part: They’re all under $50. So maybe...

Time for Easter outfits for the kids! Luckily, it’s also time for the mid-season Jacadi sale.

For those of us still digging our way out of winter, it’s hard to believe that spring is nearly here — and that Easter is less than a month away.

Beep beep! Reader coming through

Bookends are always a smart way to blend function with design in a kid’s room, so I’m often looking for cool ones. I’m taken with the wooden car bookends on My Sweet Muffin, which also happen to be on sale right now. They’re handmade in the Netherlands from rubberwood, then screenprinted. All three designs are pretty cool, but I have to admit a fondness for the not-specifically-a-VW minibus.   The one tough thing will be to get your kids to resist the urge to color them in. Or hey…let them paint them. Why not, right? Find the wooden car bookends on My...

We love that they are built to last (no holes in the knees after two wearings, yay!) and because...
