When I wanted to commemorate the birth of my son I looked for a piece of jewelry that I could have with me always but nothing seemed to grab me. Everything seemed, ummm... just not right.I did however settle on a double heart necklace from Tiffany's that bares my son's initials. I do wish that I had come across Rocks To Buy Baby.

Hey Moms...here's another product review. I absolutely love the Baby Bjorn City Carrier (and trust me, I've tried quite a few). I'm a lazy mom and dread lugging the stroller in and out of the car. But I'm gonna have to do it eventually because the Baby Bjorn City Carrier only holds infants up to 25lbs. My little guy is 18lbs so let the count down begin to stroller time! Price tag: 79.99. Shop in stores at Babies R US and Target or online at http://www.babiesrus/ and http://www.target.com/.

American Baby Magazine runs photo contests constantly. Well this one is just the cutest ever and just in time for Halloween! Check out some of the entries below:
Hey Moms! This one is for the kiddies. I found a great coat a Saks Fifth Avenue (yes, I admit I love, love, love Saks) The coat is by Burberry, so you know it's not cheap, $253.00. But before I decided on that one I took a look at Old Navy. And guess what...I found a similar coat for only $25.88 regularly priced at $34.50. Check 'em out and you tell me...to splurge or to budget?
To purchase the splurge item, shop online at http://www.saks.com/. To purchase the budget item, visit any Old Navy or shop online at http://www.oldnavy.com/.
By the way, Old Navy is having a great sale...on everything!

Hey moms! Another hot fall trend are "Wellies" or what some would call rain boots. These boots are hailed as the new Uggs. And yes, I have owned several pairs of Uggs so I decided to give Wellies a try and here is what I came up with. A pair of Burberry Nova Check rain boots, the epitome of rainy weather gear, for $170 and a pair of Target brand "wellies" for a mere $19.99.
Take a look and you tell me...To splurge or to budget? And people let us not forget, they are made of rubber after all! Shop in store at Nordstrom's, Saks, or online at www.burberryonline.com for the Splurge item. Shop in store at Target or online at www.target.com for the Budget item.

I am always looking for cool products for kids and keepsakes for moms. I found two neat items over at Red Envelope. One is a "Hand Print Tower". For thirty bucks you can capture your little one's hand prints from age 1 up to age 5. The hand print kit comes in pink or blue tins. Makes a great shower gift!
The other cool gift (and another way to immortalize your little one) also from Red Envelope is a personalized fairytale or animal story book. You can have either book personalized with your child's name. My favorite is the animal story book. It introduces animals that correspond to each letter of your child's name. These books are sure to make reading fun for your kids. Each book cost $35. Check em' out.
