There are so many ways to spruce up baby’s nursery or any room sustainably. A new room update doesn’t require spending a dime if you gather up a few eco-chic tips!
An easy and natural way to create atmosphere in any room is through scent. Consider the delight from delicious kitchen aromas or the smell of a bubble bath. At the May 1st Eco-Chic Expo in Seattle, exhibitor Satsuma Designs will help guests create these scents to turn each day into a springtime stroll. Here’s a little recipe they’ve cooked up.

Mommy Toolbox was launched by Mary Kay Holms in the Fall of 2008 after several years of watching her friends use less than ideal tools to attach things to strollers. She says, “I’m always looking for ways to make life easier and being able to strap things onto a stroller or your body leaves your hands free to take care of the kids.” Inspired to help other parents, she created the convenient Carabean clip. Mary Kay, based in Los Angels, gives us a “Behind the Brand” look at the tools of her trade and how she crafted her handy dandy company.

Paying tribute to the good ole’ United States of America is important to many consumers, which makes it equally important for many retailers and designers. The following companies are proud to manufacture their clothing lines in the United States. Committed to helping the economy by employing locally, rather than outsourcing, and using top-quality and eco-friendly materials, Nay et al, Kandle Kidswear and Tralala are dedicated to providing the best and most fashionable children’s clothing.
Fall is vivid – everything is enhanced from the yellow, orange and red leaves falling on lawns to smoky smells wafting through the air. The season also brings cooler weather, and as parents get their children’s back-to-school clothing out of storage, they often discover that the kids have outgrown last year’s outfits and jackets. As the Fall 2010 wholesale buying season winds down, springtime gives retailers a last chance to plan ahead and be prepared for the “windfall” of new children’s apparel next autumn. Here are a few Fall 2010 favorites The Giggle Guide™ is falling for from Attitude Pie, Alpha Industries, Llum, and Desigual.
Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale’s son Zuma is wearing his big brother Kingston’s hand-me-downs! Good thing they’re the ever-adorable BabyLegs® - the very same ones we sent in Kingston’s Big Brother Basket way back in the summer of 2008. We saw the whole family on the way to a party in Malibu in the pages of OK!, People, and Us Weekly this week – it’s their very own Easter Parade!
No Slippy Hair Clippy® is so ready for spring! We’ve seen Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban’s daughter Sunday Rose spending a lovely afternoon with her parents wearing a white No Slippy® Audrey bow. Cash Warren was out and about too, carrying his daughter Honor Marie home to her mama Jessica Alba wearing a No Slippy® Zoey baby bow that matches her little pink shoes!
Friends and fellow dog lovers Sandi Hochman and Jonathan Cathey got together to form Lucky Puppy to celebrate the love people have for “man’s best friend” by offering apparel for kids and folks who believe, like Charlie Brown, that happiness is a warm puppy. The “dog”-tag line for Lucky Puppy says it all — “Nothing But Cute.” Sandi Hochman shares with The Giggle Guide™ her inspiration to start the lifestyle store that has become a well-known brand. Lucky Puppy is a fitting name, as the company actively helps to find new families for homeless dogs.
We are so excited about our Fall/Holiday 2010 line, I had to write about it as well as show it to you. It really is our best ever, including the hottest fashion trends with our tried and true classics that I wore as a little girl…. and a middle schooler…. and a teenager…. and a college student.
Some things to think about:
• Don’t miss the grosgrain bows with organza overlays. It’s a fun twist on an old classic.
• Gray is the new brown.
• Flowers, flowers, flowers.
• Wee Ones exclusive print ribbon created by our one and only head designer.
What comes to mind when someone mentions a “Big Brother” or “Big Sister” t-shirt?

It’s time to offer color and fun graphics kids want to wear and parents want to buy! You now have a choice…
