Back to school cool: jean jackets

I can feel it. The looming end of summer and beginning of a new school year, fall, and the dreaded Chicago winter. Yes, I said it. I've never lived anywhere that doesn't have 4 seasons, and as much as I dread the extra long season of coldness, I love switching up my wardrobe every few months to accommodate the changes.  I've been working on a number of back to school projects ranging from polo shirts and tees to dresses and backpacks. My absolute favorites so far have been Levi's denim jackets, the ultimate in back to school cool. There are so...

Best of Bump Club and Beyond Event

The annual 'Best of Bump Club and Beyond' event was May 4th, and I'm finally coming up for air. The event is basically an entire day filled with the BEST education and information for parents-to-be, new parents and parents of toddlers. The BEST experts, the BEST resources, the BEST services, and the BEST baby brands in the industry all in one place. It was held at the Swissotel here in Chicago and it was bananas! Large and small brands alike were represented, such as Uppababy, Skip Hop, Chicco, and Nuna, as well as local brands like Monica + Andy, Latchpal, Vilahbloom, Mommagourmet, Stitch monograms +...

Personalized baby gifts: Baby name pending

Last May, I was a bridesmaid in one of my very closest friends wedding. Monica and I met in college (over 14 years ago), and eventually both ended up in living in New York. Fun fact about Monica and I - she was there (at the bar) the night I met my husband AND I was there (also at a bar, a few years later) the night she met HER husband. Anywho, I diverge. Fast forward to this Spring, and Monica is due to have her first baby! Our regular phone dates now consisted of baby prep questions, registry chat, pregnancy symptoms...


Calling all expectant and new parents!

Calling all expectant and new parents!

The moment I found out I was expecting my first, I was beyond thrilled. In addition to the overwhelming excitement, I totally panicked. What would I expect at my first OB appointment? How would I manage morning sickness at work? What if it's twins? Where and when should I register, and what the heck do I even register for? Nanny or daycare? So much to think about! Evidently in Kindergarten when asked what I wanted to be when I grew up I proudly responded 'a mom'. I had waited for this moment my whole life, but holy smokes maybe I should've...


'Mom, do I really need monogrammed drool bibs?'

'Mom, do I really need monogrammed drool bibs?'

Bet you never thought drooling could be cute, right? Wrong! I receive custom monogram requests often, and I always giggle because almost every inquiry begins with 'this may be random' or 'not sure this is even possible' and better yet 'you're going to think I'm crazy'. I consider myself pretty quirky and random, so I LOVE custom embroidery requests. A customer recently asked about the possibility of monogramming baby bandanas and asked if that was crazy. Hellllo, I monogram everything that isn't breathing, of course it's not crazy! The baby bandanas we went with are from Kiddy Star and came 8 in a...
