Due Date Maternity Shirt | Culpeper General

Cutest. Maternity Shirt. Ever.

 

Yes, that’s a stamp on my growing belly. And if it’s not obvious from the picture, I’m due the 15th of February 2013.

 

Precious, right?!

 

 

¡Niña! | It’s a girl!

 

Shannon Carter of Culpeper General, a friend of a colleague of mine and owner of this Etsy shop kindly sent me this t-shirt and it’s been a hit anytime I wear it.

 

Her online shop has Due Date T-Shirts like mine (which come in four different colors), Monthly Onesies, First Month Onesies and Birth Announcement Onesies for the babes.

 

How adorable are these?!

 

First Year Monthly Onesies | Variety of colors

 

Birth Announcement Onesie

 

Numbered Birthday Shirt | Boy Monthly Onesie | Girl Monthly Onesie with Dots
These all make for super original baby shower gifts and I especially am digging the monthly onesies to keep the family updated the first year. They obviously come in a set of 12!
If this mega cute baby range looks familiar, you may have seen Shannon on The Martha Stewart Show last year and Culpeper General also made Babble.com’s Top 50 Etsy Baby Stores.

As for me, I’m definitely in the final countdown – it’s T minus 6 weeks (or sooner) and frankly, I’m getting anxious. I can’t wait to meet my daughter and see Little M with his baby sister.

 
 

Congratulations to all you pregnant mamas and best wishes for a happy and healthy 9 months…and beyond!

Portable Fun with Playskool Pop-Up Shape Sorter

It’s been a long summer. In fact, too long. My son’s last day of kindergarten was June 2nd! Take a few moments to ponder that one. Keeping a 6 year old and a very stubborn and “it’s my way or no way” 2 1/2 year old has not been an easy task. My kids and I played (and searched for pieces!) with the Pop Up Shape Sorter as part of a sponsored post for SocialStars and Playskool #PlayskoolCrew Toys in this house {Read More}

Too Cool for School with On-the-Go Playskool Fun

When you are a toddler/preschooler you accessorize with your coolest toys. They should ideally complement any outfit, they should be portable for the unstoppable on-the-go kid and washable (or at least easy to wipe down) making our lives as mamas much easier. My kids and I played, learned and accessorized with the Fold n’ Go Busy Elephant and the Stack n’ Stow Cups as part of a sponsored post for SocialStars and Playskool #PlayskoolCrew Playskool does super cool like no other {Read More}

15 Most Influential Mom Fashion and Beauty Bloggers

This blog began in January 2012 after blogging as my son for two years at Mummy’s Busy World (no longer online.) I was scared to be me, especially if I was going to show real style, fashion and beauty as a mamá. I hadn’t seen much by way of mom fashion bloggers so I wasn’t sure where to start. I thought fashion and beauty blogging was for the thin, under 30 and childless — at least that’s what it seemed like. {Read More}
