The following is a paid Advertorial from Darling Mummy: Isn't it inspiring (and girlie) to "think pink" every October for Breast Cancer Awareness month? Joining in the spirit, Darling Mummy created their fun "One Tough Cookie" design to honor a friend who lost a brave battle to breast cancer. We love the message and the cause! The tees, baseball … [Read more...]

Looking for something a little different than the usual? International Playthings sells a ton of great toy lines, including toys from Tomy. The Tick Tock Answer clock caught my eye as I'm trying to teach my oldest the concept of time (and how to tell time). We already have the Hide & Squeak Eggs, which have been a long-standing favorite in our … [Read more...]

I am a HUGE NFL football fan. Every Sunday my whole family gets in our Eagles gear to show our spirit and get ready for the game.

Nothing special… until I discovered the Fabulous Alteration Shop at Bella … [Read more...]

The crazy Deglingos, crafted in France, are made from nearly 50 different kinds of fabric and string, which makes them not just fun to cuddle with but fun to touch for the youngest of children, … [Read more...]

I recently caught wind of the latest prints and patterns from Hooter Hider and Bebe Au Lait. They are adorable! And as someone who lived under her Hooter Hiders through nursing, I'm envious of all of the current nursing Moms who can use some of the hip, new patterns. I've said it dozens of times before and I'll say it again - I'm a modest person … [Read more...]

"Tonight, my pretties, we'll be serving up a cous-cous and cauliflower coulis, with a hint of yogurt curry, followed by an apricot pear rice pudding" Sound far fetched for an eight month old? Not when you have the Beaba Babycook! This wonderful device cooks and purees baby's food for you, so quickly and easily it's almost unbelievable. Lets get … [Read more...]

We recently had my favorite (and only) professional photographer over to take pictures of our family for our holiday cards. (Dina Rose, by the way, for all you locals in the Philly area. Email her - she's amazing and gives a discount to Mommies with Style readers so mention us if you book.) So you can only get a 5 and 2 year old to sit still and … [Read more...]

Have a great idea and no idea where to start? Or maybe you have already launched your dream business but are feeling like you could use a little advice and working-mom strategy from someone who has been there and done that?
