Keeping Baby Food Fresh!

Our friends at Innobaby heard the news that I was expecting, and they sent over some great glass containers that keep baby food fresh! We love that they are BPA free. Since they’re glass, we can always tell what is in them with a glance. Innobaby was founded by two moms who wanted to deliver high quality, smart solutions that benefit both parents and babies.

Sweet Vintage Baby Shower

How sweet is this pink and white baby shower?! I love the light pink touches. Macaroons are delightful to eat and to look at, don’t you agree? The cupcakes are wrapped in sweet doilies, with cute bird decor. Thanks to Kara’s Party Ideas for these pics!

 

Baby Bathtime With The Puj Tub

Leaning over a low bath tub with a baby is no fun at all, and even worse for the lower back. Using the sink has long been the practical choice for parents of newborns! The Puj Tub makes this so much easier. It is safe, soft and secure for baby. It definitely keeps the baby calm in its cradle like position. And for mom or dad, there’s no stress on the knees or back. We love the options of either kiwi, white or aqua colors. Their slogan says “Better for Baby, Better for Mom”, but we think dads will love this too! You can purchase this baby bathtub at a variety of retailers.

Alist Baby Loves: Kia Sorento EX

 

 

What does every proper girls weekend need? The proper ride! The very kind people at Kia were nice enough to lend us a fully loaded Kia Sorento SX for the weekend. This luxurious crossover had everything, leather interior, GPS navigation and seating for 7! Black with grey leather interior, it was gorgeous! I normally drive a sedan, and I had never really appreciated a high seating position. This gave me a great view of the road, and an added sense of confidence and security. Another thing that really surprised me was how flexible the seating was in the Sorrento. I picked up my 6’3” tall nephew and his equally tall friends from high school and they all fit in very comfortably, even in the back row! Later on, when I needed a bit more cargo space for all the shopping that took place, I could just flip this seat back and get plenty of storage room.  Driving around, I noticed we were getting up to 32 MPG on the freeway. Better than my four door!

My friend and I also did a lot of exploring in Orange County. We drove up and down the Pacific Coast Highway checking out thebeaches and stopping at the scenic overlooks. There’s really a lot to do between Newport Beach and San Clemente. There’s a great art scene in Laguna Beach, a fantastic marina in Dana Point, San Clemente has a surfer town vibe. Newport Beach is just glam with great shopping and dining. Every turn we took in the Sorento gave us another dazzling view of the coast. This really is America’s Riviera.

There are two kinds of mothers out there. Those that love flowers and those that don’t.

If one of those people just happens to be your mom, check out this delicious gift basket pictured above. It has almonds, peanuts, apples, crackers, cheeses, pears and petit fours! Yum! Okay, I think I maybe one of those ladies who prefers a food basket after all. Check out this site if you are looking for mother’s day gifts other than flowers!

Rachel Zoe’s Baby Nursery

Celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe doesn’t disappoint with her super-chic baby nursery. The glamorous mom to baby Skyler used Oilo’s Cobblestone motif baby bedding in her modern and eco-friendly room. (And of course, we notice that Hermes blanket just chillin’ in the crib.)

AListBaby Loves: Aden and Anais Baby Blankets

Swaddle blankets are all the rage…and my crew tells me that Aden and Anais are the coziest! So when I heard that Serena & Lily were adding their designs to these fabulous swaddle blankets, I had to check them out! Serena & Lily incorporated their own signature patterns to create co-branded blankets. The 100% natural cotton muslin fabric is super-soft, breathable and gentle on baby’s skin––ideal for swaddling newborns. But it’s also a great all-around blanket beyond the infant years––as a sunshade for the stroller, a ground cover for on-the-go changes and a lightweight layer on warmer days.
