An ode to creative Mom’s

Posted on May 4th, by Melanie

Being a Mom is hard enough…add being a business owner on top of that and you are pretty much a “Super Mom”! I am priveliged to know 2 amazing Mom’s and one Mom to be that have created some wonderful products that you are sure to love.

My cousin, Soni is a mom of two darling girls and owner of Stringbean Co., a company which features items like baby-leg warmers, capes for kids, baby wraps and aprons. I have been fortunate to test out her products and they are wonderful. The quality and design is thoughtful and creative. She has spent much time and effort in perfecting her products and it shows! If you want to check out her items, check out her website. http://www.stringbeanco.com/

My sorority sister, Krista, who is a current Mom-to-be illustrated the most gorgeous children’s book titled Alphabetica. This wonderful book is an ode to the Alphabet, containing poems and colorful artwork that accompanies them.

All I want for Mother’s day…

Posted on April 28th, by Melanie

It is my first official Mother’s Day and I feel like it’s kind of a big deal! We carry these babies for 9 months, go through grueling labor and then we are the ones up late at night when the baby is crying! We deserve a special day, so I have certainly put some thought into what I would like to do to celebrate.

It would be amazing to spend a day in bed with Mimosas, Gossip Girl reruns and naps in between. But, since that probably isn’t going to happen I would gladly accept any of the gifts listed below.

My husband does a wonderful job of picking out jewelry. One Christmas he gave me the most fabulous pair of earrings. They were gold circles with tiny gold chains linked in between and from them hung a pink feather. So unique and beautiful and I just loved them. Unfortunately, I have an affinity for losing just ONE earring.

My current obsessions…

Posted on April 22nd, by Melanie

I have many loves of my life…my husband, my baby, and of course clothes and makeup! Here are a few things that are currently getting my motor running!

I am a huge lipgloss fan, and typically I am a Chanel girl. But, I was ready to try something new and I am glad that I did, because I came across Lancome’s fabulous product!!! It is Lancome’s Color Fever Plumper. The thing I love about it is the texture (smooth and not too sticky) and it’s light enough to put over your favorite lipstick if you want to. It gives you a slight plumping/tingly sensation, but not like some of the other plumpers out there. The applicator is a flat sort of fan shape that makes it easy to apply and it doesn’t go on clumpy. My favorite color is called “puckered” It is a super light pink with lots of sparkle.
