A diaper bag I adore!

March 22nd, 2011

In the fall, I wrote a review about the Kokopax carrier, which I loved and still love. Kokopax recently debuted a new diaper tote called Samantha. I was so excited to receive one for review and couldn’t wait for it to arrive.

Flutter tote

Here’s a descrpition of the tote:


This fun and funky diaper tote is one that mom will want to use on her own, not just for baby.  Made from 100 percent cotton canvas, the samantha diaper tote features a custom designed, water-resistant lining, durable webbing, high quality leather accents and magnetic closure.  A zippered pocket with custom zipper pull, three extra–deep pockets, a beverage compartment and metal studs on the bottom to keep the bag clean, make the tote exceptionally functional for a variety of uses.  Other available fabric designs include: bubbles, bubbles take-two, sprout, pax and licorice.  Dimensions: 18” X 5X 14”.

The Samantha diaper tote is a generous size, but not too big. I agree that it’s a bag Mom will esnt to use on her own, I’ve used it a lot when I don’t have my two girls with me. I love the relaxed look of the tote and so do a lot of other people – I get at least one compliment whenever I leave the house with it! Having a newborn, I still prefer a more sturdy bag with a more pronounced and flat bottomn especially since I’m carrying around bottles of formula (and seemingly everything else besides the kitchen sink), but the Samantha Tote is excellent for trips to the grocery store, etc. I keep mine stashed with diapers and wipes so I can grab it and go whenever I’d like.

Overall, I adore my Samantha Tote. It’s great for Moms who’s youngest has reached toddler age and doesn’t need as much supplies (I miss those days!), or for breastfeeding moms who may require fewer supplies. And you’ll love all the compliments your sure to receive! Head on over to Kokopax to get yours. – Katie

belabumbum

I was sent their flutterby chemise with a matching outfit for my new baby, Greta. Unfortunately, I’m not able to nurse Greta, but I can tell you that the chemise is really cute and soft! It’s great for nursing. Greta’s outfit is so sweet and I’m looking forward to her growing into it. I love Mom and Baby matching outfits. What a great way to encourage bonding in the middle of the night and to feel somewhat together at a time when life can be at it’s craziest.

Belabumbum has a great selection of maternity loungewear and lingerie ranging from comfortable to sexy. They also carry really pretty and delicate lingerie.

Belabumbum is a socially conscious company and support women. Here’s a little more about the company:

Belabumbum’s founders started the company to support themselves, the people who work with them, and their customers. The vision? To create collections of fun, feminine styles that accompany women through the creative  phases of their life. To accomplish this, they’ve brought together a “mafia” of smart, motivated women who build on each others’s strengths and values. As the company has grown, the need to nurture both babies and business has shaped the design of Belabumbum apparel as well as its operations. Belabumbum works with socially conscious manufacturers in South America to ensure excellent working conditions and job security.

Mod Bedding for Baby and Parent – {Giveaway}

March 4th, 2011

If you’re an avid blog reader, then I’m sure you’ve seen oilo’s mod gliders before. Oilo is a newer company – it was founded in 2009 by Annalisa Thomas. She founded oilo


“...to fill a void in the category for high quality designer look and quality nursery and home décor without designer prices. With a degree in arts and background in graphic design, Thomas’ passion for creativity brings a fresh new approach to a clean, simple, and fashionable look for nursery and home décor. Her designs are inspired by her two children.”

Sticks Crib Set

I agree that oilo’s designs are clean, simple and fashionable. For example the sticks crib set. I’m in love with it! Oilo currently has seven modern crib sets available for purchase. All are fairly gender neutral and all are cute, although I wish they had some more gender-specific sets (ie: a pink set).

berries duvet green pillows

I was sent a duvet cover and sham to review. I’m impressed by the vibrancy of the color and the softness of the cotton sateen. Although I can’t attest to durability, the duvet and cover feel like they have the kind of quality that’ll last a long, long while. My only complaint about the bedding line is tthe lack of options. Right now you can choose from modern berries in spring green or cobblestone in taupe. I sure hope oilo cooks us up some more patterns and colors because I really like everything they’ve produced!

Oilo also has some great lighting options and lots of variety there. I’m excited to see where oilo goes in the future as I feel their foundation is solid. – Katie

***Giveaway! Oilo is giving away one pillow to one lucky reader (oilo’s choice)!****

To enter “like” oilo on facebook and then leave a comment on this post saying you did. It’s that easy!

Giveaway closes on March 13th at midnight. Winner will be contacted via email and will have 24 hours to respond or else a new winner will be chosen.

Congratulations to Jaclyn!

Darling Accessories from the Vintage Pearl Review

January 4th, 2011

logoHappy New Year! Did you get everything you wanted for the holidays? If you didn’t get something from the Vintage Pearl, then you must read on and add your favourite item to your Valentines wish list.

I was sent the Mama Bird Necklace to review with 2 pearls which signify my first daughter and my upcoming second. I chose to not have anything stamped on it as I liked the simplicity of the copper bird. The necklace is really sweet and an excellent and subtle way to celebrate the “Mama” in your life. It’s a great necklace for every day wearing and it even arrived with it’s very own polish cloth, which conveniently helps me to keep it in tip-top shape.

mamabirdThe Vintage Pearl was begun by a stay-at-home Mom, Erin, looking for a creative outlet. And it grew into a popular business. The Vintage Pearl even has a storefront with a studio in Tulsa, OK! Exciting, right? You can check out Erin’s blog here.

Many other items can be found from the Vintage Pearl, and since each item is hand stamped, you can guarantee that your’s will be unique and made especially for you. Some of my other favourite items are the initial on a chain necklace and the silver cuff bracelet. I would love a little baby spoon as a keepsake for my second daughter. The spoons come hand stamped with your choice of words. Darling! -Katie

***Promotion! The Vintage Pearl is offering Boutique Cafe readers 15% off from now until the end of February. Just use the promo code CAFE15. Whatcha gonna get?!

Pajamasutra – Cute Pajamas for Everyone!

October 19th, 2010

pajamasutraI was really excited to get my Jaipur Rose Voile pajama set from Pajamasutra and I’m going to be honest with you, I’m not a sleep in my PJs kind of gal. I wear pajamas strictly for lounging. For someone who’s not huge on pajamas, I gotta say I really like these. I think one of my favourite things about these PJs is the lightweight cotton. I run a little warmer than the rest of the world (or at least my husband), so I appreciate something lighter. They were great for the extended summer we’ve had here in Denver. And they were just right for the retreat I had in Breckenridge, CO at the beginning of this month.

My PajamasOne thing that sets Pajamasutra apart from other pajamas out there is that they aren’t boxy. They have shaping darts, bell-shaped sleeves, and pants that gently skim the thigh before flaring. What great features! I found that the top came in at the waist just the right amount to give me a little bit of shape, while still enjoying traditionalish style pajamas. Now that I’m 23 weeks pregnant, and have no waist to define, it’s a whole other story! I would’ve liked the top to be a couple inches longer. I’m long-waisted so I could really use those extra 2 inches. If you have an average length waist, you’ll be good to go!

fabricsPajamasutra has such cute prints and I really love the color combination on my pajamas. The blue and the pink together are so fun. You’ll find great color combinations on all the pajama sets!

Here’s what Sarena Udani says about her pajamas:

“Every girl needs a quality classic pajama set even those of us who sleep in a t-shirt and shorts need them for lounging during family trips, hanging out in the dorm room, on your  honeymoon, or a trip to napa with the girls. As a new mom, a pair flattering pajamas that are presentable in front of visiting guests is essential!”

Kushies’ Boho Diaper Bag

October 5th, 2010

kushies boho diaper bag Kushies sent me their boho diaper bag to review (you’ll remember them from my cloth diaper review) and I think it’s really cute. It has a great, fun pattern and looks more like a small weekend bag to me than a diaper bag. I love the satchel look that it has.

It’s features are:


For chic moms everywhere…this stylish new diaper bag offers all the practical features. Multiple pockets for easy organization are provided along with an easy access exterior pocket, stroller snaps with snap closure, 2 bottle pockets, a pacifier pocket and convenient padded change mat.

Great right? I’m totally sold on the stroller snaps. Those make such a huge difference when cruising through the mall. I feel so much more organized and because they’re attached to the diaper bag, I don’t run the risk of losing them. This diaper bag is the perfect size as well. Because it’s the right depth, it can be packed with lots of stuff, but you’ll never feel like your digging at the bottom of the bag for ages. You can see the bottom easily in turn, making finding that loose toy, or pacifier that you just threw in (we all do it) simple! The bottle pockets are a little bit on the wide side. But they’re elasticized so that does help keep things upright. Overall I’m happy with this diaper bag. It doesn’t feel luxurious like the other diaper bags I’ve reviewed but it retails for less than half to almost a quarter of the price of those bags. The Boho Bag retails for $49.99, which, in my opinion, is an excellent price for such a cute, practical diaper bag! Like Kushies on Facebook to keep track of all their great promotions.- Katie

***Promotion!! Kushies has kindly offered Boutique Cafe Readers 10% off their entire purchase! Enter code boutiquecafe2010 at checkout. Offer ends October 19th, 2010.***
