Online Boutique Critique - The Baby Gardner - Vintage Inspired Originals for Little Ones

Could this hand-made baby rattle BE any cuter? I am always on the lookout for new online boutiques from which to find lovely fashions and accessories for little princesses and every once in a while I come across an absolute gem and this is one of them - The Baby Gardner - Vintage Inspired Originals for Little Ones. The Petit Bebe Soft Baby Rattle is definitely inspired in it's engineering (loving that they stuff a soft baby sock and then sew in a couple of little jingly bells for a sweet ringing sound ) and those embroidered eyelashes are so cute. A perfect and unique gift for a newborn princess - this online boutique is a definite 5 stars from me. I strongly recommend you check out their other items - I plan on featuring some more of their gift wear in future posts. Happy vintage shopping!

Look! It's Emme from the Block

We have been waiting a while now to see more of little Emme Maribel Muniz and here she is. Otherwise known as Baby J-Lo and daughter of singers Jennifer Lopez and Marc Antony, Emme looks very cute in her Osh Kosh Infant Girls Floral Lace Tunic Top, available from Target's online US boutique. It is from the same story as the dress Stella McDermott wore to her brother's birthday party in March. In these economic times, it's great to see celebrities choosing a less expensive alternative that regular mums can follow

Sunflowers + Suri @ gigi + lulu

Baby Gap sure know how to do a cute sun dress - check out Suri Cruise in one of their new summer creations - the Sunflower Tank Dress. Suri looks like she is growing out her fringe - or should I say, bangs for my northern friends ; )

Stella the little Senorita in a Pebbles Clothing Dress & Ralph Lauren Gold Sandals

Getting some good mileage out of those gorgeous Ralph Lauren Gold Baby Sandals, Tori Spelling has matched them with a beautiful Pebbles Senorita Dress for baby daughter Stella McDermott. Stella has worn these shoes a few times this month and we just LOVE the little painted toes - Gigi & Lulu would be impressed : )

65 Roses Day - Cystic Fibrosis

Today is 65 Roses Day - a day of national awareness for the debilitating condition cystic fibrosis. This cause is close to my heart as I had a friend pass away from this genetic condition 15 years ago. Due to advancements in medical technology, the life expectancy for a person with CF is now in the mid thirties, however my friend made it to her late thirties, which at the time was amazing, along with the fact that she also gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, which was such a wonderful miracle back then as well. The lovely story behind the name "65 Roses" is that of a little boy who had a sister with CF and could not pronounce her condition properly, instead telling people his sister had "65 Roses".

Bon Jovi Baby all grown up in Betsey Johnson

It seems like it was only yesterday that Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora and then wife, actress Heather Locklear had a baby girl, Ava Elizabeth. Gorgeous Ava, who is the spitting image of her mother (though I think she has her daddy's eyes) is now 11 and all grown up. Mum & daughter were at the American Idol finale, Ava wearing a Betsey Johnson dress from the Spring 2008 collection, also seen here on Camp Rock cutie Meaghan Jette Martin. Pop star Rihanna has also worn the black & white version

The Talented Little Miss Damon

Love, love, love this Juicy Couture Martinique Box Ruffle Sleeveless Dress, as seen on gorgeous little Isabella Damon, 2 year old daughter of actor Matt Damon. Available from the Funky Monkey Baby Boutique. We would love to see a photo of Isabella and Violet Affleck on a play date, since their daddy's are great friends. Maybe in a couple of years time, when Matt's baby daughter Gia and Ben's newborn Seraphina are a bit older..

Snuggle Sweet Pea Pod - a great first toy snuggly for baby and beyond

Every child has a toy they love and have had since they were a little baby and though probably worn and dirty, you could not bear to part with it on your child's behalf. Gigi has a toy bunny that is called M&M, and a Play School Jemima Ballerina doll. Lulu has the Anne Geddes Baby Bunny and this gorgeous Snuggle Sweet Pea Pod by Manhattan Toys, which is obviously a favourite of little Violet Anne Affleck. We bought ours from the Australian online boutique Urban Baby though they are currently out of stock. US retailer Barnes & Noble have them in their online store

Who's the fairest of them all? Ava Jackman of course!

Ava Jackman just LOVES her Mini Micro Scooter - and she LOVES spending time with her daddy, actor Hugh Jackman, combining both loves in New York this past weekend. Ava must also love Disney Princesses - she has a Snow White princess dress on over her tracksuit on their play date

Harlow is a cool cat in her Puma Future Cat Crib Sneakers & Zebra Print Leggings by C&C California

You are probably wondering why there is no current photo of gorgeous Harlow Winter Kate Madden wearing these Puma Future Cat Crib Sneakers in White Pot Pourri or also why we are using an old photo referencing this C&C California Zebra Print outfit she also wore back in January. It is simple - I am a mother and like Nicole Ritchie & Joel Madden, would be disgusted if a photographer stuck a camera in my child's face to the point that she was terrified. Via his Twitter account, Joel expressed his disgust of the papps in Miami this past week:

Let me just say shame on any magazine or blog that post pics of us in the miami airport. The photographers were acting like animals.

PS: You can follow us on Twitter here

Now THAT'S what I call a Yummy Mummy!

Looking absolutely stunning in this evening gown with her ever so subtle baby bump, supermodel Heidi Klum attended the "The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion" Costume Institute Gala Ball in New York City on Monday at the Met.

Honor Marie is a cropped cardi cutie

You must check out the website of UK children's label Mamas and Papas - their baby clothing is so beautiful - very traditional yet modern styles and antique soft shades of pink, blue, pale green and soft grey. Actresses Jessica Alba & Nicole Kidman are fans - we saw gorgeous little Honor Marie in the Mamas and Papas Hippy Trail Cardigan back in March and little Sunday Rose wore their Striped Baby Leggings in London back in September. Having lunch with mummy yesterday, Honor Marie is wearing the Mamas and Papas Cropped Cardigan from their Limited Edition Under the Tuscan Son collection
