The One Beauty Product to Buy Before Giving Birth
Having had four babes of my own, I know first hand how hard it is to keep it together during those first couple weeks with baby.

Maternity Outfits of the Future?
There’s no secret here: I love helping pregnant women look and feel their absolute best—and one of the ways I do that is through my maternity line. Whether it’s a great fitting pair of jeans or a drop-dead dress for a celebratory night out, I think maternity outfits can really transform how you’re feeling about yourself and your pregnancy.… Read the rest
I”ve had the great fortune to be a part of creating a lot of different nurseries and it still remains one of my favorite things to do. The time and care that goes into creating this sanctuary for the arrival of your baby and for you is a truly special time and the process should be enjoyed almost as much as the end product.… Read the rest
