Simple by Bebe au Lait

Bebe au Lait celebrated Earth Day with a major launch of their new line - Simple Organic Nursing Covers - Now Available!

What's the Big Idea?
Simple by Bebe au Lait Certified Organic Nursing Covers are a revolutionary spin on their award winning nursing covers. In addition to showcasing immaculate craftsmanship, Simple nursing covers are made with 100% certified Organic Cotton or Linen, dyed in gorgeous colors using only eco-friendly dye, and are packaged in recycled and recyclable materials. Reduce, reuse & recycle!

They are available in the following colors:
Organic Linen:
Raspberry, Peacock
Organic Cotton:
Buttercup, Steel and Willow

Why Organic?

The demand for organic products continues to rise; and, given Bebe au Lait's commitment to environmental responsibility, they knew the time was right to release an organic product. After extensive research and testing, the fabric they sourced is 100% certified organic cotton and linen, produced by environmentally conscious farms.

Buying good quality organic products for an entire family, can get expensive. We all know money's tight, and when it is, it's easier to eat poorly for way less. Don't sacrifice good nutrition, hop online and grab a cash advance, and be back to the organic section of the grocery store in no time!

Surprising Discovery

Our son has discovered the .com addresses on everything he sees lately. He's just beginning to read, yet he'll tell me that there's a .com on his cereal box or on the TV commercials or on the boxes of his latest toy.

Just this morning my son and I were talking about the web addresses and how they're similar to phone numbers in that just about everyone my son knows has one. He tells me then that his website is and I just laugh.

Five is his favorite number (he can't wait to be another year older) and has told me that 555 is not only his web address, but it's his phone number and flight number as well. (He's been in more airplanes than I can count.)

Imagine my surprise when I actually found myself typing in the URL: and not only discovering that a real website exists there, but it's one that I think is pretty relevant to this blog.

And so, here it is:
555 - Design | Fabrication | Management

It is the mission of 555 Design Fabrication Management to address client needs in an unmistakably bold manner. 555 has proven to be a dynamic face in the global design industry. By stressing innovation, functional design and the integration of specialized materials, 555 offers an unique language for expressing client tastes, styles and needs.

555 has applied its wide-ranging expertise to many projects, including complete architectural design, fixture fabrication and strategic brand development for Delia's, The Green Bay Packers, The Jean Paul Getty's Museum, Northstar Ski Village in Lake Tahoe, The Nine Steak House and Ghost Bar at The Palms Casino and Resort, Las Vegas. In addition, we have orchestrated the development of product packages on both a national and international level for companies such as Armani Exchange, The NBA, Burberry, Chanel, DKNY, YSL, Valentino, Tumi and Guess Jeans.

My son has a way of surprising me and making me think he knows a bit more than the rest of us (on most days).

fawn and forest

I would love to have another baby, just so I have an excuse to buy these beautifully designed products that I didn't know about the first time around. No, really. I would love to have another baby...eventually. Now, if or when that actually does happen, I'd have to actually find a way to afford these things. For now, I'll add them to my Baby's Registry list and think of ways to make some money in the meantime....donations anyone?

Seriously. Wouldn't you love to own these beautifully designed products for your little one?

(My son has this desk and we both adore it.
He colors or eats his snacks there, uses it to put together puzzles or watch TV.
It was definitely worth every penny.
And it was easy to put together, too.)

What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas

I'm heading to Sin City (aka Skin City) in just a few days and I plan on sitting by the pool and relaxing. Usually that consists of getting oiled up and enjoying a few cocktails while leafing through some glossy magazines filled with more pictures than words but, what can I say? I love vacation and don't get enough of them these days.

While most of my travel adventures are for work, this upcoming trip will keep me cool at these hip new venues that I plan to check out:

L.A. Baby

I spent this last weekend in Los Angeles during one of the warmest weekends of the year (so far). Inside the convention center, hundreds of exhibitors crowded the hall for Baby Celebration L.A. as parents with babies and toddlers, moms-to-be, new dads and grandparents walked the aisles, no doubt just as overwhelmed as I was.

Here are several of the companies that were there with products or displays that caught my eye:
