Conception and Food: What to Eat and When

baby, baby, EAT, FAM, pregnancy By February 4, 2016 Tags: , , , , , 4 Comments

Eating a healthy, balanced diet rich in antioxidants and high in nutrients is important, but there is more to it than that – it can boost fertility. Surprisingly, it’s not just what you eat, but when you eat it. Our bodies have different nutritional needs over the course of the month, so it makes sense that there is a link between conception and food.

Unique Baby Names

baby, FAM, pregnancy By January 28, 2016 Tags: , , , , , , 33 Comments

Unique baby names are so important. They give meaning, show kindness to your heritage, and personality. Also, you probably worry about your kid being called something horrible in school. Wow. It feels like a bigger decision than getting pregnant in the first place. So many of us would love to avoid the ‘Jennifer 1’ , ‘Jennifer 2’ phenomenon that plagued us through grade school. Some of us bought every typical book, and frustrated with the normalcy, went through newspapers, Restoration Hardware catalogues and then, the atlas. (Of course…)

Staying Healthy During a Winter Pregnancy

baby, FAM, pregnancy By January 15, 2016 Tags: , , , , , 1 Comment

While many of the moms I know have preferred a chilly winter pregnancy to the discomfort of expecting in the hot summer months, I’ve learned firsthand that being pregnant in the winter comes with its fair share of obstacles–specifically, staying healthy during a winter pregnancy despite sick kids, cabin fever, and fewer opportunities to remain active.

Toddlers love to pitch in and help around the house, so what better way to get them started on the right foot in life than by giving them their first chore chart?

Luxury Strollers

Our Favourite Luxe Top Strollers for 2015

baby, FAM By June 11, 2015 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , No Comments

Always top of mind when you are pregnant is the stroller. This year we’ve put together our top strollers for 2015 with luxury in mind.

Luxury Strollers Silver Cross for Aston Martin1. The Cadillac of strollers. The Silver Cross was beloved by our own mothers while walking on bustling urban streets and it’s back with a vengeance in partnership with Aston Martin. And kick-ass wheels (of course). Oh, and it includes a 100% cashmere baby blanket.

Luxury Strollers Young Versace2. Young Versace makes a beautiful carseat/bassinete/stroller system for a child from 0-3 years. The medusa logo is embroidered on the bedding, and the handle features a latte holder. Which you will absolutely need.

Luxury Strollers Fendi3. The Fendi Inglesina stroller line features a shock-absorbing pram and also a versatile foldable toddler stroller adorned with the signature ‘Double F’ fabric. There’s a gorgeous baby carrier as well.

Luxury Strollers Bugaboo4. One of the North American preferred brands has been Bugaboo. Easy to shift, sexy to push and with tons of accessories like umbrellas and jogging extensions, this is a well-priced, durable model. Special editions by Diesel, Andy Warhol and Kaviar Gauche are also available.

Luxury Strollers Stokke5. The Stokke line takes ergonimics very seriously, and the strollers are super easy to adjust. We love the design and how they look as if they are hovering on one bar with your tiny one floating!

Luxury Strollers iCandy6. iCandy is another UK brand who stands behid innovation. Soon they will launch a custom line, and even if you don’t want to design your own, the vibrant colours in the existing roster are spectacular. iCandy also offers limited editions.

A Luxury Nursery by Savio Fermino

baby, FAM, GEAR, style By June 11, 2015 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , No Comments

What mother doesn’t dream of reading to her baby in a stunningly beautiful space like this luxury nursery by Savio Fermino? The canopy above the crib softens the lines of the room, and classic cream is used both to soothe and promote gender neutrality.

Savio Firmino was established in Florence in 1941 by Mr Firmino Savio. The Company has been operating for 70 years. And lucky us.. there is now a store in the US located in Coral Gables. Petit Tresor is the exclusive dealer and ships worldwide.

Luxury Nursery Savio FerminoWe sourced these images while on a jaunt to Harrod’s in London and the trip certainly rekindled my true love for everything baby!
