apologies

Apologies that it has been weeks since my last post! What with work craziness, Halloween festivities, illness (poor P!), first birthday party prep (already!) and the impending arrival of the in-laws, this little blog has sadly been neglected (and will likely continue to be so until the end of November). That said, there were three bits of information I came across today that I couldn’t resist mentioning:

From RackedLA, the Bugaboo store in El Segundo is having their biggest sale ever this Saturday, at 1160 East Mariposa Ave., from 10am – 3pm. You must RSVP to lastore@bugaboo.com by this Friday to attend.

Zulily is offering a $50 credit to Acme Party Box Company for $30. Often mentioned in party and kids blogs, the site offers beautifully crafted party supplies in various themes, such as Circus and Woodland.

And finally, I had been searching a long time for the perfect keepsake gift for P’s first birthday. With the help of Daily Candy, I may have found it: Catbird’s Alphabet Rings.

freehand baby carrier

Today on StrollerTraffic I read about the FreeHand Baby Carrier that debuted at last week’s ABC Kids Expo – it seems to combine the best of both worlds, i.e., the comfort and back-wearing features of the Ergo and the front-facing capacity of the BabyBjorn – I would love to try it! Sold here.

the mini social la warehouse sale this saturday

The Mini Social holds warehouse sales at their headquarters 2 – 3 times per year. Over the summer, I picked up several cashmere Lillybee sweaters and dresses, an adorable Acoustic jacket, simple and sweet Egg by Susan Lazar pants, Baby Eggi tops, and other items starting at around $8! Go early as the good stuff sells fast!

belated postings

The Renegade Craft Fair is coming back to LA in December! We experienced the 2nd annual LA fair held in July and loved it – unfortunately, it was a ridiculously hot day in the middle of a field with no shade and P was not up to the task. We only got to see a third of it, but will plan on spending the better part of the day there in the winter!

For all my mamas-to-be, Daily Candy Kids is offering 25% off of fall merchandise at Chulamama thru Oct. 21st – just enter code “dailycandy25” at checkout.

And also from RackedLA, Yoox is having a crazy online sample sale thru Oct. 20th.
