I have been using my newborn nephew as my guinea pig in order to find all the best products for my son who will be born in just about 7 weeks.

I first discovered Lexie Barnes back in 2005. My first review of her bags was of the Darling, which to this day continues to be one of my most favored bags. I now own two Darlings and although I use many diaper bags, I always fall back on hers. So I was excited to check out her new backpack line, the Duchess. So I asked my friend Rachael (two … [Read more...]

It doesn't scream "diaper bag," yet has all the functionality of one. It has a built-in changing pad, just zip down and it unrolls to reveal a pad and a built-in wipes pocket that you … [Read more...]

So we had the baby's Christening yesterday. I was feeling kind of blah about what to wear so I ran out at the last minute and picked up a cute brown dress from Ann Taylor, as I wanted my "I'm a nice wholesome Mom who at least looks like she goes to church regularly" look.

I thought this was a wonderful initiative worth posting. Flour Pot Cookies is spreading some happiness to kids who need it. The Flour Pot is donating cookies to the Ronald McDonald House - one cookie for every drawing or note they receive in the mail. The drawing will then be attached to a cookie and given to a child at the Philadelphia Ronald … [Read more...]
