Bonjour Coquette Mamans! I have a special giveaway starting today and running for 1 month. Win this beautiful Coach Poppy Pop C Swingpack (retails for $118). I use this cross-body bag all around town but especially for the playground when I'm with Chloe. I'm not a fan of leaving my wallet and phone in the stroller as there are usually lots of people around or curious kids who like to dig their hands into my things. (Case in point, I've had a 2 year old boy grab Chloe's cereal container from the stroller and spill it all over the ground. Ugh!) Plus, after a long time toting around a diaper bag full of crap, it just gets tedious -- am I right? Since the playground is only a skip and a hop away from my apartment, I like to carry my essentials -- wallet, phone, lipstick, and 1 packet of Toddler Mum Mum crackers. That's it. (I always have a clean diaper + wipes in the stroller.) With lots of moms around, I always get compliments!
Here's your chance to stay true to your fashionable self and win a Coach Poppy Pop C Swingpack!

We are off soon on our first family vacation to Hawaii and one of the purchases I made is the Lily Gold Sit 'N Stroll 5 in 1 Car Seat & Stroller ($243.51 on Amazon). The thought of lugging Chloe at 15 months through the airport while carrying her large car seat or having her fidget and scream on my lap just didn't seem appealing to me. A friend and mom I trust, Nancy recommended it as she has been using it for traveling with her daughter for over a year. This is an FAA approved car seat that doubles as a travel stroller and a booster seat. You can wheel your little one into the airport and even down the airplane aisle to get him/her in their seat. Plus at only 22 pounds this whole thing is pretty light weight compared to carrying a regular car seat and stroller. The less crap I have to lug around the better. Sure it's a bit pricey but I figured we'll be traveling for the next few years and I hope to have another baby who can use this too. Seemed like a worthy investment!
The reviews for the Sit 'N Stroll on One Step Ahead definitely confirmed it all for me. I found the best price on Amazon because there is no sales tax and free shipping on this item. Woo!
I'll write up my own review of the product after we are back from vacation.
The new Juicy Couture spring line for kids is available at Bloomingdales. I love this bright yellow Daisy Romper ($88 at Bloomingdales). Right now, it's 25% off for a limited time so you can stock up on warm weather gear!
Here are more Juicy Couture kids favorites from Bloomingdales:
Bonjour mamans! There's a great sale going on at Old Navy Maternity from now until Feb 18th. My advice is to stock up on pretty spring tops and comfy dresses, like this Maternity Rope-Tie Tank Dress ($15, regular $26.50) that brings in the nautical stripe trend (and ropes) I've been talking about so much on Coquette.
Here are the rest of my Old Navy sale picks:
Sorry Mamans! I haven't been posting on here for a week or so since I was traveling for work last week and did a presentation at a conference too. I'm wiped out! I've also been dealing with my left hip bursitis for over a year now, a remnant of pregnancy/childbirth. The doctor tells me it's pretty common. But it's gotten worse for me in the last two weeks. I hope it gets better soon because I can't take it anymore. In the meantime, I am doing stretches and trying not to be sitting for too long. I found a great resource online for bursitis and stretches you can do for hip pain.
My advice to new moms, make sure in your later months of pregnancy from 7 months and on, to not sleep on one side and alternate, even if they say the left side is better. Memory foam padding for the bed can also help with the weight against the mattress.
In the meantime, enjoy this cute photo of Chloe and Lulu this evening. Chloe wanted a kiss and Lulu just stared at her mouth. Too funny! I'll have some fashion loves posted for you next week! xoxo
