At 31 weeks pregnant, I don't feel very glamorous. But according to fabulous Style Expert, Amy Tara Koch, author of Bump It Up ($18), it doesn't have to be that way. Last week I attended her fabulous Bump It Up Book Launch Event at NYC's W Hotel, co-hosted by Big City Moms, and sponsored by Pampers, Tide to Go, La Croix Water, Britax, Wacoal, and … [Read more...]
