Roadmap Massage Tees!

November 19th, 2013



Okay, so this is seriously cool and ingenious.  These roadmap tees by Bky Kid are designed to attract your little ones give you a back massage while you just chill out. What a fabulous way to get a rest,  a massage and keep the kids busy playing, all at the same time. I just asked Oona if she would like to play on this shirt and she said, “Yes”! Looks, like I have one in my future. But I wonder how relaxing it will be if the girls fight over it…

I went to the Desigual Spring 2014 showing a couple of days ago and I thought I’d share some of the colorful and oh-so-wonderful things they have in store for us – not only for the kids, but for the ladies too. The showing was in a rustic loft in midtown, and exquisitely designed with artistic touches everywhere.

All the pieces will be available at Desigual online and in their stores come February 2014!

Fall Clothes for the Brooklyn Mom (and Beyond)

November 13th, 2013

This is a guest post from Donna Duarte, Style Editor for Woman’s Day and author of the wonderful Motherburg blog.

It took me ten years living in New York to finally buy a black fall coat. Coming from a sunshine state I was use to wearing clothes with color and print, happy clothes my co-workers would exclaimed. I would say that now I have a balance wardrobe of neutrals and prints. The solid palette works longer and if you know me you may notice I wear the same things over and over for I just tend to rework my wardrobe with great pieces that have multiple uses. I also like no fuss cuts but with a twist in the design department. Which is why I love the top from Zara with the leather pockets. I’d wear that to work with a leather skirt and jeans on a Saturday morning. I am a sucker for the printed jean, I love that they bring a wardrobe up a notch and find them perfect for moms since they are quite comfortable. The leopard coat is perfect if most of your wardrobe consists of solid-classic pieces for this coat is fun yet chic. I am a believer in the hat and I’m thinking of getting a more dressier version of the baseball hat I wear any chance I get. The navy Baggu tote is perfect for all year round and the gap boot, $100? Finally a well made boot that isn’t $400 plus.

Those little wheels house a little rolled up film that has nine of your favorite images on them. And you just stick them in and project. How on earth did they come up with this?!

Cool Mom Picks for Summer

August 1st, 2013
So, I took a little break and now I'm back! We just got back from our great vacation on Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard and I'll be posting something about that soon. In the meantime, today it's all about Moms. We love keeping our eye out for cool and gorgeous things – and here's an accumulation of some of most recent, favourite finds. Moms – we know you're busy, but it's important to spoil yourselves once in awhile.

Polaroid Camera: Although kids these days are growing up in the “digital age,” there's still something charming about Polaroid cameras. Luckily for us, it's coming back! This funky Polaroid camera is not only gorgeous, but an excellent tool for documenting those precious moments… forever! Both you and your kids would have an incredible time seeing those moments print out right before their eyes. This can be purchased here.

Oversized Clutch: Sure, diaper bags are practical. But… sometimes you've just got to treat yourself! And measuring 12 inches in length, you can still hold your “must-haves” in this beautiful, oversized, lambskin clutch Mottled, pebbled leather constructs a fold-over clutch from Gorjana! Available here.
Tortoise Accent Lamp: What a gorgeous – and unusual – lamp! The gold accents, the crystal blocks and, of course, the tortoiseshell makes for a beautiful accessory to brighten up (literally) any room. Available here.
50s-Style Dress: ModCloth is the Queen of adorable (and affordable!) dresses, but we absolutely love this one. The synched-waist and sapphire print makes it flattering for just about everyone. You can pick one up here at ModCloth, or browse for more funky, summery dresses.
