The Royal Wedding!

Top news is the Royal wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton! If you haven't seen the pictures, take a look because the bride is breathtaking and the wedding was stunning! And have you seen that dress!?

Designer Sarah Burton has outdone herself with this beautiful Alexandra McQueen gown worn here by Kate. She looks absolutely ravishing! Those lace sleeves compliment the sweetheart shape perfectly and accent Kate's specs both modestly and tastefully while keeping us in awe of her natural beauty. Kudos Kate on a wonderful choice! Now maybe top it off with a Ju Ju Be and you're good to go!

Now how about some royal cake!? Hmmm.... I wonder if I can have some sent to me 2nd day air... YUM! Props to baker and cake designer
Fiona Cairns for creating this "sweets lovers" masterpiece! And hey, if there are any leftovers, I've got space in my fridge! Can we possibly add some Stephen Joseph Stainless Steel bottles with milk beside that cake?

Those layers and details are the work of an artist and of course the young couple certainly deserves the best... well sign me up because "the best" looks not only gorgeous but pretty tasty!

Can't forget some of the Royal Family's guests! The celebrity spotlight shines bright on the expecting couple, David and Victoria Beckham.

What a trendy pair: David chats to guests as he and Victoria make their way inside

Both sharply dressed, the couple turned heads and riled crowds as they approached Westminster Abbey this morning. Victoria, you are modestly gorgeous and when that bump is good and ready, we've got the expert mommy fans to help you choose the right diaper bag!

And lastly, the balcony kiss that sealed the deal in front of an entire nation.

Did someone say MOM?

Check out the website later this week for some great savings for Mother's Day!
Show the moms in your lives just how special they are by getting them those bags you know they won't splurge on for themselves! Choose from the different designer diaper bags we carry or you can create a wonderful gift basket with a bunch of accessories you know she will love!

Wanna take it a step further!? Have the kids write a bunch of love letters for mom and stuff them in the different compartments of the bag! She'll either find them when she packs it up for the first time or while she's pulling things out throughout the course of the day! Either way the bag is a GREAT surprise and the added sentiment of some cute mommy love letters is sure to make her melt!

Are you getting her some jewelery? Well how about using a Ju Ju Be Paci Pod as the gift box? You can fill it up with that beautiful piece you picked out and add some filler so she has to hunt for it. Wanna take it a step further? Put the Paci Pod into a Ju Ju Be Be Quick then put the Be Quick into a Fuel Cell then the Fuel Cell into a Be Light then the Be Light into a MightyBe and you've set her up for any quick trip possible! What an amazing gift! AND she gets a bunch of surprises to lead her to that gorgeous jewelery!

Wanna be cheesy romantic? Check out the Zoobies characters and see if there's a character that matches one of the pet names you call her. Shove a heart shaped greeting card in there that says "To the greatest MOM in the world, you will always have my heart and be the greatest mother of the greatest children I could have ever asked for" How's that for a melt worthy line?

How about having a GREAT fun time with the kids that morning!? Get each child a Sugar Booger Apron BUT don't forget to get one for yourself too! Imagine her face when you walk into the bedroom with "breakfast in bed" sporting a kiddie apron to match your kids!? She'll get a huge laugh, a full tummy and a happy heart!

Are the kids still too young to participate? Well then it's all up to you! How about taking a 5 tier InnoBaby Packin Smart and making a fun and romantic scavenger hunt!? Just take the 5 tiers apart and put a letter into each of them leading her to the next piece that you'll of course hide around the house! Each note can have one line from a poem too that way by the time she finds the last piece she has a full greeting card poem to turn her to mush! Take it to the next level by having the last letter clue her into where her brand new diaper bag awaits!

Now how about the moms themselves? I know some of you have an agreement with hubby that you'll buy your own gift to save him the trouble :) Well you've got coupon codes and "specials" galore!
Check out the coupon codes! If you don't see them yet, they'll be up soon and will be available through Mother's Day!
ENJOY and happy shopping!

It rains in the Spring and Summer too!

Spring is just one of those seasons where you just don't know what to wear, how warm to dress and which mood swings mother nature will have during the day. We all try to leave the house prepared and make sure our kids have the right accessories throughout the day as well. The packing list would easily include an extra sweater, maybe some socks and a hat... but what about the rain gear?

Well Stephen Joseph says LET IT RAIN!
And with Stephen Joseph's rain gear... your kids might agree!
Check out the new Spring/Summer 2011 Stephen Joseph collection including ADORABLE rain poncho's and umbrellas! Each having whimsical characters with amazing detailing and vibrant "anti-gloom" colors.

You can easily throw a poncho in their backpacks or in your diaper bag. Spring strolls in the park don't need to end in drenched clothing, sad faces and messy cars!
Even the celebs are all over Stephen Joseph. See Sarah Jessica Parker below with her son who's a fan of the Stephen Joseph Pirate Umbrella!

The Stephen Joseph collection is a huge hit! And if you're looking for the perfect gift well look no further. Not only are the rain ponchos and umbrellas a great springy gift but check out the rest of the line to find lots of matching accessories, adorable items and great matching items to put together for a birthday gift, Easter gift and even a "just because" gift.
Being a kid was always fun... Being a Stephen Joseph kid is that much better!

Pre-orders start on April 11th.
If you are new to Ju-Ju-Be then you might be saying…”What is Earth Leather?” Well, let me tell you!!! At Ju-Ju-Be, we are fun and funky, but we are smart and concerned too. When we started our quest for a fashion extension in our line, we needed a material that didn’t exist yet. We wanted something as supple and durable as leather, but without the impact on the environment that tanned animal hides have. We also wanted one more critical thing that we thought was going to be a a pipe dream…we wanted it to be machine washable. After countless hours of engineering and research, we’ve got it! We’re proud of it. We love it. Earth Leather. Found in our Legacy Collection, we feel that we’re leaving a legacy for the future. As you purchase the bags and feel the quality, you’ll know that you’ve purchased a legacy item that is sure to become an heirloom in your family too!

And don’t forget that the Steel/Lilac Be Quicks are coming too…

More comparison pix to come tomorrow!! Get excited!

Thank you Ju Ju Be for a great reveal and a great blog post!

Summer Reveal #1…It’s Di-Vine!

Fantastically flat foliage bound between cracking parchment pages of the old leather notebook.
A botanist’s scrolling specimen notes neatly and indelibly drawn in the margins.
An occasional blot of india ink adds an accidental but artistic touch to each examined example.
Delicate details are depicted in magnified form, from veins to variegations, stems to stamens…
…a naturalist’s notation for future rumination in times of unruffled reflection.
