Whatever your price range, whatever your taste — well, as long as it’s good — you’re guaranteed to find something you adore. 

So much coolness. Where to start…

Tee shirts squared

New moms of twins need everything. EVERYTHING. Times two. But that doesn't mean you want to be the practical friend who shows up at the shower with two packs of diapers, two boxes of wipes, and two snot-sucking nasal thingies. At least not without throwing in...

Washi and Wear

While I’m a huge fan of origami art, I never know exactly what to do with them. I’m thinking a row ofswans on my mantle may not be the greatest design decision I ever made. But, now I can actually wear my washi (the beautiful paper used to create origami) in beautifully handcrafted pendants by Blend Creations.

Get Your Own Derby

Derby_1With today being the annual running of the Kentucky Derby, we tried to come up with something apropos for cool moms. But, quite frankly, we can’t see anyone wearing a huge hat or taking the time to make a mint julep (I just pour whiskey in my coffee nowadays).

A is for Apple

ApplecardsYou could get the coffee mug-chocolate candy-apple tote bag combo that every teacher truly treasures. (Ha.) Or you could actually get them something that they aren’t going to pawn off to their friends and neighbors.

This Little Light of Mine

OwlThere’s a few things you don’t realize the importance of until after you have kids. Okay, there’s a lot of things, but as of late, it’s night lights. I don’t want to jinx myself, but I’m pretty certain our new toddler bed child will be making her way to our room on more than one occasion. So, she might as well find it in style.

Little. Hand-Stitched. Different.

If you're the type who prefers your child in slightly more interesting clothing (coughGAPcough) than every other kid on the block is wearing, we feel you. So does designer Heather Flottman. Her online boutique, Lilliputians NYC, is packed not only with fabulous...

Your Greatest Masterpiece

Let me guess: The baby’s room is a dream come true – wallpapered and bordered, with hand-painted initials hanging from the wall. It’s perfectly coordinated, straight out of a magazine. The funny thing is, your 6 week-old does not care if his Moses basket matches his crib sheets, matches his diapers matches, his curtains. Liven things up a little!

Happy Hair Days Are Here Again

I was reading some fashion mag or another last summer when I came across a reco for the T3 Tourmaline Professional Wet/Dry Iron. I'm generally skeptical of articles that promise beauty miracles, but pregnant and in desperate need of a beauty miracle, I gave it a shot....

I’ve Taken Back My Coffee Table

Mydesigns1_1I finally put my foot down, and cleared all the puzzles, Play-doh, and crayons off my coffee table. Call me crazy – I like to be able to put my feet up at the end of a long day and not get glitter and glue all over them.

These Designs are a Chou-In

Chouette2While I love the loose picture inserts in announcements and holidays cards, I find that it’s very hard for the picture to actually make it out of the card and onto my fridge without getting crumpled, folded, or dirty.

Mother’s Day Shopping For a Cause

Still haven't done your Mother's Day shopping? Or maybe you have but you're looking for some fun shopping just because. Well why not do it for a cause by shopping for great gifts benefiting St. Jude Children's Hospital. St. Jude Hospital, named after the patron saint...

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 egotistical slogans...

Liquid-Filled Assets

Brashort2 If your husband gets turned on seeing you in a stretched-out, colostrum-stained, saggy, no-underwire, cotton nursing bra, then congratulations. You hit the marital jackpot.
