A Perfect Post-Partum Outfit: Pooch Hiding, Nursing and Babywearing Friendly

By

PC096231 I love this pic. Despite the fact that Pax was born 3 weeks ago, I hardly look post-partum at all! Happy day. Unfortunately, it’s only a trick of the eye, due in large part to my husbands mad photography skills, the sweet cape/poncho thing I’m wearing, and the fact that I squeezed into a Bella Band per J’s instructions: “put it on so tight you can barely breathe!”
Bella Band or no, this will be my default (aka wear everyday) post-partum outfit until I loose the pooch. Or at least until I lose most of the pooch. Or summer hits…whichever comes first.

Black, White and Shades of Gray – M’s Christmas Wish List

By

We all know this: when it rains it pours. It wouldn’t be a cliche if it weren’t just so dang true. Indeed, it has been a bit of a deluge at my house. So I’m feeling like I just sort of want to keep my head down and sneak out of 2010 and into 2011 nice and slow, without. . . making. . . any. . . waves. I didn’t realize my mood had permeated even my fashion sensibilities until I started clipping my picks for this post and I saw that everything was black, white and gray, hence my Christmas/Holiday 2010 wish list, a collection of drool-worthy if monochromatic gift ideas for mamas.

Gift Ideas For Men (From a Man’s Perspective) Part 1

By

Let’s begin this year with my number one rule when buying for men. We are simple creatures, we are not complicated, trying to buy us elaborate or complicated gifts rarely works. Trying to buy us clothing that is out of our personality range rarely works. Most of us enjoy tradition, simplicity, experience, and quality. A grandfather or father probably passed those values down to us so it’s usually somewhere inside, even if it’s buried beneath a love for video games or other materialistic bologna. This list is built around that concept. I didn’t include very many electronics or high tech gadgets because those are too easy. Everybody wants an iPad, PS3, LCD TV, GPS, blah, blah, blah.

So forward this on to your gentlemen or partners to help point them in the right direction, gift-wise.
