What’s On Your Desk?

Instyle is a must-read. I especially like when they ask celebrities what they carry in their make-up bag. Online they have a slightly different version -’In Your Bag’: http://inyourbag.instyle.com/your_look_blog/celebrity_bags/index.html. I like to compare the contents of my Treesje bag with the likes of Ivanka Trump (she also carries around several lipglosses at once  - they’re easier to find if there are 5 of them).

Another area I am curious about is what people surround themselves with at work. I have to feel inspired by the items on my desk, I couldn’t imagine having a dull grey space.  There is always so much on my desk; fabric swatches to be approved, pantone books, magazine/newspaper articles that I need to find the time to read and the list goes on. Here is a shot of part of my desk. If I didn’t have to be away from my desk so much during the day i’d like to light some candles too. I always take a single flower from a bunch at home – one of my all-time favorites is the Safari Sunset shown here, I love that it changes color from one day to the next.

What’s on your desk? We’d love to see what you surround yourselves with!

Hollywood is Hip to Bebe au Lait

It’s true, celebrities sometimes get to shop at events where they are chaperoned and guaranteed privacy, and the rest of us have to shop the standard ways. However, they still choose which brands and products they like and when it comes to their children, they’re extra sensitive about what they’ll use and specific about why they like it. With a boomlet in Hollywood, we are hearing from a lot of celebrity moms lately! At the Boom Boom Room (the day before the Golden Globes, in LA) we introduced Hollywood to Bebe au Lait’s new, exclusive patterns and all of the benefits of our innovative new Double Bibs and even had fun talking about parenting.

Once children are ready for solid foods, protecting their clothes–during snacking, meals and in the washing machine–means finding a sizable Bib without scratchy closures. Most of the celebrities I met had a Bebe au Lait or Hooter Hiders cover IN their diaper bag and were eagerly anticipating our entry into the next stage of their parenting lives. The Double Bib and All-Purpose burp cloths were adored for their simple, chic designs and beautiful style. More than a few celebrities even commented about our high-end cottons that could withstand a lot of use, travel and washing rendering them right for an eco-minded lifestyle where quality and craftsmanship are more highly valued than disposable, poorly crafted versions of something similar.

Let us know what you think too! Leave us a comment.

The 10 Things You Need in Your Diaper “Bag”

Handle any situation! Be ready for the unexpected! But don’t tote around a heavy, over-burdened diaper bag that weighs you down.
Forget the expensive mad dash to a store for items you left at home. Instead, focus on these ten essentials that meet your needs by doing double duty or packed in just the right amount. 
1. Key word: Tote. Gone are the days of the diaper bag. Use one great tote that you like to carry and keep only the essentials inside. Works later on as a carry-all for the plane, laptop bag, purse etc.
2. Multi-purpose Bebe au Lait breastfeeding cover–nursing, pumping, privacy on-the-go. Doubles as a sunshade over a stroller or front-carrier + as a lightweight blanket + as a “staring stranger” shield around town or on a plane + a changing mat. Machine washable, over and over, 
3. Baby wipes. For Baby, you, seats, tables…the list goes on. Be sure they’re in a re-closable and refillable container so you’re never without.
4. Diapers. 3 per baby per 4 hour period of time.
5. Ointment or diaper cream in a small tube.
5. Two small toys, preferably favorites OR ones Baby hasn’t seen in a while.
6. Ibuprofen &/or acetominophen (check with your Doctor for dosage and appropriate uses)
7. 2 small, plastic bags (preferably re-used from the grocery store) for stinky trash or wet clothes.
8. One extra outfit.
9. Natural, unscented lip balm–great for your lips, cuticles, sore nipples, and to quickly force your eyebrows into shape as well as provide a pretty bit of light on top of your cheekbones when you haven’t had time to do makeup!
10. Hand sanitizer. 

Mom-to-Mom tip: After every trip with your tote, be sure to re-stock and re-organize so you’re always ready to go.

Angie Harmon’s Baby Shower Gift

Angie Harmon Nov. 3, 2008

Angie Harmon Nov. 3, 2008

We were so pleased to see (on People.com) that our Hooter Hiders by Bebe au Lait cover in one of our most popular unisex prints, Hot Dots, was gifted to Angie Harmon by her friend Amber Valletta over the weekend. She’s due to have her 3rd baby next month. Keeping up with a new baby + 2 young tot’s schedules, as well as her own, will be much easier with this in her bag. And if she chooses not to breastfeed in public with all of the paparazzi bombarding her…she can use it in Hollywood’s 2nd favored-way–as a paparazzi shield over young infants in front-carriers or strollers. Congratulations Angie.
