Riding Hoods: Customize you Bugaboo

While we’ve always been fans of Bugaboo and go crazy for Special Edition Bugaboo strollers, sometimes the right design doesn’t hit at the right time for you to get the perfect stroller of your dreams. Riding Hoods stroller canopies are the perfect accessory to customize your Bugaboo to reflect your personality or update a older model. The replacement hoods are available for the Cameleon, Donkey, Buffalo, Frog, Bee ’07-’09, Bee Plus, and Bee 3 and are the perfect way to dress up your baby’s ride.

There are patterned canopies like Tropical Paradise


or the Limited Edition Milan Multi-Hue.


Some have the pattern hidden on the inside (which I love), like the Little Red Riding Hood.


The easy to clean vinyl and leather look canopies like the Urbo are extra chic.


Riding Hoods retail for between $105 and $160. Browse the site to find your favorite combination and roll in style!




ABC by Little Envelope

This is an alphabetical work of art unlike any we’ve posted about before. Subtle but totally chic, the Hand Cut Paper Typography is an alphabet created from a single sheet of paper that is simply cut and folded.

This comes to you in A3 or A4 sizes for £30.00. With shipping to the US it’s about $54.

Skip Hop’s Uplift Multi-Level Baby Bouncer

We’ve been waiting on this innovative new bouncer since we saw it in Vegas last fall, so I’m excited to announce that Skip Hop’s Uplift Multi-Level Baby Bouncer is now available.

Skip Hop took the classic baby bouncer and “gave it a much-needed lift!” The floor bouncer can raise up to sofa height so family can interact with baby wherever they are sitting.

My Modern Nursery #113: Golden Glow Yellow Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

After more than thirty nursery boards where I’ve used Lullaby Paints colors as the backdrop, I was starting to worry that I had chosen all my favorite shades of wall paint. Of course there were a few more colors that would be perfect for use on accent furniture pieces, but I wasn’t sure how many more colors were left to use for nursery inspiration. Of course you can always color match from other brands to create your favorite zero VOC paint, but you can imagine my delight then when Lullaby Paints updated their site, adding hundreds of new shades to their shop!

It was time to do another yellow nursery and instead of a handful of options, I found…

Lullaby Paints yellow choices

I was looking for a medium (not too light nor too dark), rich (but slightly muted) yellow that would create a cozy, modern atmosphere. I think Golden Glow is a perfect shade for anyone brave enough to go beyond the pale, so to speak, when it comes to yellow.

Baby Book Basics

I recently received a request for my list of must-have baby books and I had to get these online for you asap. No baby should be without these classic board books. Yes, board books. I love these. They’re generally less expensive than hardcover books, prevent paper cuts and excited little hands won’t tear the pages! I call this a win, win, win situation.

These sixteen titles are a great place to start your board book library. I can tell you we had all of these. They were in heavy rotation at various times and I know many of they by heart. You will get a lot of use out of these books!
