Getaways ultimately make you want to full escape from being home or feeling like you are home, or even in someone else’s home. That’s why, I have to tip my hat profusely to The Bedford Post Inn which not only offers the ultimate in Inn accommodations & vibe, it makes you feel like you are in a house that you would literally KILL to own and live in. To me, INN, is synonymous with cute and cozy. Quilts, rocking chairs. Maybe a few cats?? And let’s not forget the creepy, lurky, inn-keeper. Well, buh-bye stereotypes and hello Bedford Post Inn. Not a quilt in sight, thankfully they are feline free, and if you can honestly say you find Richard Gere creepy, well, then, get glasses! Ok, so maybe he wasn’t our ACTUAL inn keeper, but, as one of the inn owners, well, hey, you never know! (more after the jump) Continue reading
Products, as most things in life, are always subjective. Functionality and use always depends on where you live, your style, your budget. So it goes without saying that when a product comes along that crosses all boundaries, appeals to all styles and combines ease with functionality, well, we flip out. The iCandy has deliciously come to the US from the UK, and is wowing mammas everywhere. From city to suburbia, The Apple, The Cherry and The Pear have our mouths watering and we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of The Peach. I was recently treated to a sneak peak of this sweet ride and I have to be honest, they have out done themselves. Some carry over features from their freshman line include easy, one hand breakdown to load into your car or a cab. The handle has a one click adjustment to accommodate all and did we mention it is convertible to a double? And not a double wide so it’s impossible to fit thru doorways. A double decker to maintain it’s sleek shape and fabulous style. What’s that you say? You’re expecting twins? Well just when you thought The Peach couldn’t get any ‘peachier’, get your taste buds ready for The Peach Blossom and Peach Blossom Twin. It’s so juicy words can’t even describe, and with a stroller this hot, they don’t need to: Peach Blossom & Peach Blossom Twin
Visit iCandy to find a retailer near you, since why shouldn’t your kids ride be as delicious as they are?
I am not going to lie to you mammas, I have been, for most of my adult life anyway, a label whore. Especially when it comes to shoes. Slap a Choo or Blahnik on the name and I am sold. Luckily my years in the fashion industry afforded me many a discount, freebie and way back in the day, trips to Milan when the Lira was an American girl’s best friend! Flats, wedges, boots, pumps, you name the style and the designer and my closet has it.Well, times went a changin’ and between recessions and kids, I consider being able to apply lip gloss and throwing on a pair of Chucks, getting dressed up. When you run around to playdates, classes, errands etc, you can tend to fall into the pattern of “mom” dressing, and letting your luxury goods collect dust. This so far seems to be the biggest suburban trap. As I fight it on a daily basis, I get super psyched when I come across something uber fab, under the radar and best of all AFFORDABLE.
Seriously cool, cute and chic all wrapped into one, check out the ‘Linderr’ boot by Steve Madden. It comes in Brown, Natural and Black, and looks unbelievable with leggings, jeggings, skirts and even shorts for those who go where fashion oh so boldly takes them. Oh, and with the best price tag ever: $129 at Nordstroms with their Anniversary sale in full swing. $199 after sale. Nordstroms, Madden, who knew??
So leave your Juicy track suit in the closet to collect dust and bust out these babies at your next play date! The only thing cooler than people mistaking them for Dior, would be if they came in toddler sizes! http://shop.nordstrom.com
