Coco-bebe: Vintage Inspired Baby Blankets and Diaper Bags

Coco-bebe makes a gorgeous line of plush baby blankets and beautiful diaper bags. I love the vintage feel of their baby blankets and the fabrics they have selected fit my style perfectly. My favorite is the blue vintage blanket.

I just received one of their new diaper bags and am amazed at how gorgeous it is. I can't believe how far diaper bags have come in the past few years. I will be have a give away in the near future for the bag since my kids are too old to require any diaper toting (just need to figure out how to conduct the give away first!)

As a special bonus Coco-bebe is offering 20% off all orders through the end of July!

Paper Mama: Unique Baby and Mom Announcements

Paper Mama has introduced a line of sassy stationary and announcments that embraces the experiences of a new mom with a touch of humor. New moms face so many new experiences that go well beyond just the babies arrival and Paper Mama has a card for most of them.

Their cards are designed to help you vent, laugh, celebrate, and maybe even tear up a little with all the new challenges a new mom will face.

Even though baby's first years tend to center around the parents: and child, Paper Mama has has not forgotten about all the other people who bring joy to the baby's life: Grandma and Grandpa, Aunts and Uncles, Nannies and Babysitters, The Ob and Pediatrician, and more each have a card dedicated to the impact they will undoubtedly have on a new parents life.

Their line seeks to capture the universal fears, excitement, frustrations and joys that all moms face at one point in time or another — all the while keeping our sense of sass and moxie at the forefront all with today's hip style.

Celebrity moms who have received the cards and stationary include Gwen Stefani, Debi Mazur, Brooke Shields, and Gwyneth Paltrow.

[I personally love their twins card and would have loved to receive something so unique after I had the boys.]

Rockin' Baby Slings

As soon as I saw Gwen Stefani wearing Kingson in this gorgeous sling, I immediately fell in love with it!

The sling is made by Rockin' Baby Slings in the orange zebra / brown floral print.

Rockin' Baby makes a distinctive line of baby slings and pouches as well as venturing into clothing and baby bedding. The products were designed by two Los Angeles moms who were eager to find products that fit their own unique personal styles when they were expecting their own children in 2002.

The company has grown into a celebrity favorite with not only Gwen as a customer, but the slings have been spotted on Courteney Cox-Arquette, Patricia Arquette, and Angelina Jolie (she has the Black with Silver Studs.)

Recent celebrity moms who have received Rockin' Baby Slings include Katie Holmes, Brooke Shields, and Gwyneth Paltrow

Hula Girls Swimwear

Summer is here and everyday brings a slew of celebrities out to the beaches. As difficult as it is for a celeb to find that special dress for the red carpet, it is equally as difficult to find the right swimsuit for the paparrazi flooded beaches (amplified even more if the celeb is pregnant!)

Britney Spears obviously faced this dilemma prior to her recent Miami vacation where she was recently photographed wearing a couple of stylish, Hula-la swimsuits while vacationing with son Sean Preston and husband Kevin Federline. The swimsuit line was designed by Erika Ireland of Hula-Girl Swimwear

The suits Britney was wearing are the Hula-La Pastel Houdstooth and the Plaid Plumeria which were seen in all of the celebrity publications: US Weekly, People, and Life & Style.

"As Britney and other celebrities have discovered our new line, the demand for our suits has grown exponentially," Ireland said. “I think Britney looked beautiful and I love that she is celebrating her pregnant body. I am flattered that our swimsuits are appealing to celebrities, both pregnant and not. It certainly is good for business."
