Gnome-in-the-Box

I always loved jack-in-the-boxes as a kid, but you’ve got to admit, there was something about that original “Jack” that was pretty creepy. Clowns are generally a little questionable anyway, come to think of it, let alone one intended to scare the...
YouTube for Moms: The Boob Tube?

YouTube for Moms: The Boob Tube?

One thing pregnant women and new mothers are definitely not lacking is a variety of information sources–some more desired (Cool Mom Picks) than others (the mother-in-law with some very interesting views on whiskey as a newborn sleep solution). But picking and...
I See London, I See France…

I See London, I See France…

Now that Spring is here (okay, so it’s still freezing out; minor technicality.) I’m ready to get a little girlier with my daughter’s wardrobe. Is there anything cuter than little girls in sweet little dresses, with their bare, chubby knees poking out...
Kid Rock (Not the Creepy One)

Kid Rock (Not the Creepy One)

My first concert: Elvis. I was four. And I was singing at the top of my lungs. Now, three decades later, I’m more in love with music than ever. And like any lovesick eighth grader worth her salt, I like to talk and squeal and giggle non-stop about my latest...
Silver is the New Black

Silver is the New Black

All the 3-going-on-14 little girl’s clothes have forced me to become a traditionalist when it comes to dressing my daughter. I’m into the fairly standard tops, bottoms, and dresses — no ridiculous mini skirts or shiny half-shirts for my toddler. But...
Beautiful Inside and Out

Beautiful Inside and Out

I’m a sucker for great packaging when it comes to beauty products. I know, I know (for all of you with way more common sense)…it’s what is inside that counts, but I can’t help being attracted to funky, fresh designs and innovative bottles and boxes. Trust me...
Two, Two, Two Pants in One

Two, Two, Two Pants in One

I love the concept of reversible kids clothes. And not just because I’m a shameless laundry avoider. It’s more so because I am at times too indecisive to choose between two items–I want them both. So when I came across the entirely reversible swingy,...
Matchy-Matchy, Not Tacky-Tacky

Matchy-Matchy, Not Tacky-Tacky

As a fairly style conscious woman, I always thought that looking put together, in body, mind and home was an easy, natural thing. Until I had a kid. And then another one. And nowit takes as much energy as I can muster just to pick out a bag that goes with my barely...
Boyz in the Hoodie

Boyz in the Hoodie

As much time as I spend on the web tracking down cool clothes for kids, I’m admit I’m still often at a loss for gifts when I hear a friend has a boy on the way. If only I liked those sailor suits, things would be a whole lot easier. And then I discovered...
A Bag for Every Season

A Bag for Every Season

Why is it that it’s acceptable to have fifteen purses in your closet that serve very specific functions, but then people look at you funny if you want to register for more than one diaper bag? Sometimes a girl needs a little variety. And there’s no more...
Honor Thy Belly

Honor Thy Belly

Yes, we’d all like to be the type to embrace and adore every crease and crevice, every jiggle and wiggle in our figures as we evolve from imperfect to imperfectly pregnant; but I’m afraid those types are limited to Dove ads and Dr. Phil segments. So I...
Children of the Children of the 70s

Children of the Children of the 70s

Some trends in kidswear cannot be short-lived enough. That whole pimp genre of little boys’ tees? If I never see another one again that would be just fine. But one trend I’m loving: The groovy 70s-inspired designs on kids tees, that look eerily like the...
