Pretty Ribbon...

My family and I went to the Hoboken Art and Music Festival yesterday to check out all the great handmade items and to visit my sister-in-law who has started her own floral design business.  My sister-in-law was sharing her booth with a very talent Mom of Valerie Parker Designs.  I immediately fell in love with her bow design because it was unique and very beautiful.  I purchase the pumpkin design for my daughter for the fall and Halloween, Valerie was soo sweet and I told her that her bow design was super cute.  if you love beautiful hair accessories with a unique twist, you must check out

Bamboo baby blanket

I have this fascination with blankets especially baby blankets because there are so many wonderful companies that make beautiful blankets and blankies.  I must say that mine and my daughter favorite is Bamboo Woven Baby Blanket by Yala formerly known as DreamSack.  I absolutely love my blanket as much as my daughter loves hers, Although my daughter tends to steal mine often.  I originally purchase mine via www.babyhalfoff.com before this site was sold to the current owners about 3 years ago.  It was the best purchase I have made because

Missoni for Target...

I actually was paying too much attention to launch of Missoni for Target until September 13th...I decided to trying to shop online and then Target website crashed...I was unable to place an order until 2pm on Tuesday and when I went back later on the website was down again.  I was content that I was able to order with no issues but I kinda want to buy more Missoni items.  I actually passed by Target store on Tuesday evening and it was sold out of all Missoni goods...I check ebay because I was curious and the sellers are selling the Missoni for ridiculous amount.  Thanks to Shefinds.com, I found out about facebook group that was formed called

Super SuPperSuit Baby Bib

I am all about essential items for my kids, I came across SuPperSuit Baby Bibs via Twitter.  I immediately love the look and design of the baby bibs.  I knew that I need to try it on my daughter, who will be 3 in November.  She was excited to try the bib on and loved the print of pearl necklace and off the shoulder dress.  My daughter does not like to put anything on but she was excited.  I would definiately suggest this adorable baby bib to anyone.  Plus, the SuPperSuit Baby Bib comes with a pouch to save and carry the bib.

SuPperSuit Baby Bib story:

When we, designers duo Gian Marco Merazzi and Paola de Stefano Merazzi, were expecting our first baby, we went out and bought (what we thought) was necessary for the well being of the baby, and then some!

We imagined all the things we would need to feed the baby once he'll start eating by himself.

Yeah I know, but as first time parent we pictured the perfect baby that would eat and smile away...

We soon realized that babies are messy. We couldn't keep up with it.

And what about those bibs that only cover the front of the body?

Babies get food allover themselves not just in front of them!

Being Eco-conscious and living in a small NYC apartment, prevented us from using disposable bibs and wanting to limit the Laundromat trips.

After our second baby was born we realized that most of the pictures we took of our little ones were taken at the dinner table and all of them with the bib on.

At one point we even stopped using bibs altogether thinking we would just change their clothes afterwards. We grew tired of changing outfits so often.


That is when we put our heads together and designed SUPPERSUIT.

SUPER suit + SUPPER suit.

First, we started by making the bib more like an art smock and using a lightweight fabric. That would also take care of our kid habit of yanking the bib off since our bib wears like an outfit. Then, we made the fabric water resistant while keeping it lightweight and wearable.

It was important for us to be able to easily wipe clean our SUPPERSUIT bib.

We also added a Velcro closure in the back to facilitate one hand operation, a large crumb catching front pocket to help collect spills and a carrying pouch to store the bib in your bag (very helpful when you have to store the bib that is still dirty).

We thought about making a design that will put a smile on your face:-)

And that is how Tuxedo Bib and Little Black Dress Bib were born.

From 6 months up.

This is SUPPERSUIT. This is our Vision.



10 Years Ago-September 11, 2001

On Tuesday September 11, 2001 was a beautiful day and I remember commenting with my roommate (my boyfriend brother) on how gorgeous the day was.  He worked in the towers and I worked in mid-town but really enjoyed taking the ferry then the subway to 27th street from the World Trade Center.  He left to work and I followed a few minutes later because we lived about 2 mins from the ferry landing in Jersey City, NJ.  I arrived but the ferry just left but I noticed smoke coming out one of the towers and I asked someone, the person told me a small plane hit the tower.  In that moment, I noticed that I forgot my cell phone and since I missed the ferry.  I went back to my apt to get my phone, when I returned to the ferry landing, the second plane hit ( I thought it was bomb)  because I saw the explosion from the other side...I screamed "OH *HIT"....I tried to call my boyfriend and his brother with no luck...I was freaking out and I saw other people who were arriving to the ferry landing start to freak out...

I went back to my apartment to try my home phone to call and in that moment, my boyfriend family called to find out where my boyfriend and his brother.  I did not know because I could not reach them either.  I called work to tell them I was home that I could not make it to the work...a plane hit the towers..I ran back to the ferry landing because I could not stay in one place..Still trying to call my boyfriend and his brother...no luck...My family was could not reach me for a few hours and I took my mother a week or two before into the city...showing her my commute to work...My mother was worrying about me because she knew my route to work that I went thru the World trade center...In Jersey city, I was watching and waiting with disbelief at the ferry landing as  the first tower fell.  I was in tears watching it and then the second tower fell.  I was in a state of shock, it was hard to compute.  I finally spoke with my boyfriend and he was alright but it took a few more hours before we knew that his brother was safe.  I did not know about the other attacks until later..The pentagon and the brave passengers on Flight 93...

RIP to the lives lost....I will never forget
