Let the voting begin! Celebrity Baby Blog is wondering who is on the top of your celebrity baby hit parade. And what’s better – they are giving away some Gigglegoodies as part of the fun. I am tres partial to little Ms. Violet, Mama Jennfier Garner and  Bump Goddess Halle Berry these days but you vote as you will…

The X Factor

This is well worth reading — Susan  Gregory Thomas does an outstanding job of poking behind the scenes of why Gen Xis well worth the time, trouble and intergraged campaings - especially as new and expectant parents. As always — Ada, we are loving your Babble!

Back From Toronto

Thursday, November 8th, 2007

OK, I will admit – my favorite part about crossing the border to spend time with much-loved client Bravadois telling the customs official why I am there  — “to talk nursing bras” …really there is nothing quite like watching the agent’s face as he scrambles with what to say next….ok, ok I could be nicer — but really, I need to take my fun where I can get it!

 As for my time in strategy sessions with the super sassy and savvy sisterhood that is Bravado — WOW. Look for a 2008 filled with continued innovation and mind-blowing product. They continue their commitment to women accross the board. The best part — look for their spending some quality face time in a city near you. We are in the process of selecting partners for what will be an incredible year of giving women what they need on all levels.

 As for me — I remain grateful for a client to allows me to paint in my electric, excentric and sometimes wacky colors on a blank canvas year after year. They have given the entire Forty Weeks team to take chances that have led us all to great success. And that, as it has been said, is why we are here!

 Stay tuned — this will truly be an extraordinary year…I promise this will be unlike anything you have seen before. GO BRAVADO!

So Much for Shocking!

Jennifer Lopez finally confirms her pregnancy (with no mention of twins) on stagewith hubby and baby daddy Marc Anthony in Miami. According to People Magazine, it was a real crowd pleaser. I guess the bump was not enough?

I can’t be the only one (or am I)?

The world turning on Britney (and yes, Britney failing herself) is feeling harsh to me. It is a sad, scary train-wreck (come on, you are paying attention too)…and I am honestly feeling sorry for the girl. I know, I know I was the same one who defended her maternity “fashion” sense in the media. Actually, what I did was call her consistent. And I digress…bottom line — this is painful to witness.

World’s Sexiest Baby Indeed…

Tuesday, September 25th, 2007

Today I read on People.com that Halle Berry and her baby-daddy / super hot boyfriend Gabriel Aubry will give birth to the “world’s sexiest baby”. I could not agree more (though I am going to go with stunning not sexy) – these two will surely produce a magnificent  creature. Halle looks fantastic — natural, feminine and happy! Sending love and of course an open invitation for whatever they might need from us here at Forty Weeks!

New Mama — Mary Louise!

Friday, September 21st, 2007

Though CBB reported it first, today Page Six shares pictures of Mary Louise Parkerand her newly adopted daughter (from Africa) along with parental praise from Uber Papa Brad Pitt. So to review — MLP is the top of my mama list — natural, open, easy and full of grace. It is an understatement to say I adore this woman! And count her among by BFFs that I’ve never met! Though, I am sure someday our paths will cross…I would love to gift that sweet little girl a new Hushamok toddler swing (Julia Roberts was the only other to make that short list) among other goodies….

It’s Monday – It must be New York!

Monday, September 17th, 2007

It has been a long week, or a never-ending one, or just my life – Las Vegas, Philly, Baltimore, DC and now here I am — working among the Bumbles, Hushamoks and Bravadosin the New York Showroom (and writing run-on sentences). I am thrilled to report that the October InStyleis just about to hit the Newsstands. My recent work(OK, my entire summer) with Dodge as well as Kids Headquarters will finally see the light of day. I am loving the early feedback (we love happy!) and look forward to yours…do drop me a line and let me know!

Sheryl Crowe Rocks her Bumble!

sheryl-crowe.jpgThe buzz keeps coming! Last week Naomi Watts showed off her Bumble in Buttercup, this week, Sheryl Crowe made her way through the Toronto airport with her Bumble Jessica in Blue Latte! We loved seeing the entire Bumble crew at ABC (we are all just back from Vegas) and loved seeing this continued coverage for our beloved bag (and accessory – check out the BUMBLE, ETC collection) client even more!!
