persnickety baby is one of a kind -- plus a giveaway!

"Persnickety Baby’s wandering minds are always coming up with new creations for your hard to please…baby! We are always searching for the finest products available for your little one, making sure she will be a head turner........"

We first came across Kim Clark and her most adorable shop on Etsy- but these days Persnickety Baby has a site of their own. From glam headbands to so cute beanies - this is a one stop shop for sweeties.

We LOVE the DYLAN ($23) - it adds a little more "chic" to your average beanie with a cream flower clip that pops with a touch of bling, the rhinestone button to top it off and the laced leopard sheer organza adds that extra touch of detail we just adore.

And of course, our model (my own little bundle, Kennadi) is wearing one of their FAB polka dot infant headbands with a swarovski center - similar to this one it is just the right amount of glitz on these precious accessories to perk up any outfit. We also are a big fan of the hot pink flower headband and the infant beanie with a perfect peony- vibrant color for the spring season.

Whatever age your babe is and whatever style they might have - Persnickety Baby has seriously stylish accessories for all.

*Giveaway Details*

Take a look at the Persnickety Baby site and choose ONE bow, headband, or beanie you want your little girl to accessorize her pretty dresses with this spring season - this comment is mandatory to be entered! And please, make sure you are a follower of Cupcake Mag & Sprinkles.

Chic Mom Spotlight -- All about Sarah Pinto -- her cause & eco-chic planners!


the stylish answer to green planning

Sarah Pinto isn’t just a name – it’s a brand of so cute, stylish, fun planners (notebooks too!) made to make any moms life easier with a great CAUSE backing them up.

The 5x7, 164 page planners ($25) are all about being eco-chic. The GREEN planners are made of high-quality recycled paper, soy based ink and are spiral bound right in San Francisco. They feature a monthly view, three year snapshot view, weekly view, note pages (which we love), special days, telephone/address and future planning. Not only they super practical and easy to just throw in your bag but they come in hip & fun prints.

About Sarah Pinto

Her Story: I am a busy mother of two young boys, the owner of a large dog and married to an active husband. We are a family on-the-go and it is essential for me to stay organized. I spent a long time looking for a simple, stylish planner that I could throw in my purse. I couldn’t find one, so I decided to design it myself. The result is a simple weekly planner in five different designs to help you stay organized in a fun, effortless way. I think that they’re an ideal solution for any non-Blackberry, visually-minded girl on-the-go (like me).

Her Cause: My youngest son, Charlie (now 4) was born with a heart defect. The technical term is pulmonary atresia with an intact septum. Basically, he had a closed valve in his heart and a hole in his heart. Fortunately, he was born at California Pacific Medical Center where he had open -heart surgery when he was two days old. Since then, he has had three heart catheters and another open-heart surgery. We have had amazing doctors, fantastic nurses and received wonderful care from CPMC. They all hold a really special place in my heart. For these reasons, I am donating a portion of the proceeds from my pink tapestry weekly planner to CPMC Pediatric Cardiology. Charlie is doing very well and we take each day as it comes.

Please support her cause while staying organized in a chic way.

Newly Launched -- Boujie Baby Couture

Boujie Baby Couture, leading luxury diaper bag brand, will debut its Fall 2010 Handbags for Mothers at ENK Children’s Club trade show March 7th through 9th at the Javits Center in New York City.

The Fall 2010 presentation will include the luxurious leather bags of the Prima Collection as well as the vibrant and recently remodeled Street Chic Basilia Bag. Drawing off its 2009 success, the popular shoulder bag has been updated to reveal a larger interior, wider opening top zip, a ruched patent leather option, as well as four faux finishes in onyx, metallic graphite, metallic plum and muted gold.

The Prima Collection, which was exclusively launched at celebrity shopping destination Planet Blue Kids, Malibu and Krista K Maternity + More, Chicago, is set to debut the Linda Hobo, Irene Sling and mKm Pochette to the savvy retailer at ENK. Bridging the gap between maternity must-haves and essential handbags, the Prima Collection is a pure representation of the brand’s new point of view, a full integration of before, during and after baby, so personal style never suffers.

Boujie Baby Couture is taking the diaper bag where no brand has gone before, merging high fashion with motherhood function. The Basilia Bag retail pricing ranges from $140-$425. The Fall Prima Collection leather bags retail from $225-$525.

Welcome to the upper echelon in maternity fashion.

About Boujie Baby Couture

Suzanne Kopulos is the baby bag brainchild behind Boujie Baby Couture. The brand’s birth materialized by news of a pregnant sister and best friend due weeks apart. Suzanne scoured the aisles of posh boutiques for the perfect accessory to her new nieces, the everyday diaper bag. She came up empty handed. Not a single bag represented the magnetic style that her closest friends’ possessed, so she took matters into her own hands and Boujie Baby Couture was born!

Inspired by the birth of her vivacious niece Basilia, the Chicago native has successfully launched three fashionable collections of Handbags for Mothers including the Original Chic, Street Chic, and current Prima available in fine boutiques nationwide. These fashionable and practical bags are a hit with a long list of Tinseltown regulars, including Constance Zimmer, Chyler Leigh, Joely Fisher, Denise Richards, Mariska Hargitay, Salli Richardson, Brooke Mueller, Victoria Recano, Madison Michelle, and Ali Landry. Boujie Baby has quickly become the it brand on the lips of fashionable women everywhere.

A self-taught designer, Suzanne earned her degree in Marketing and International Business from the University of Kentucky, Lexington, followed by a Juris Doctorate from St. Thomas University in Miami, Florida. Studying in her backyard of Miami Beach, Suzanne developed the creative ideas behind the brand. Upon returning to her hometown Chicago, she opted to leave her legal pad in the drawer and follow her passion for fashion. Boujie Baby Couture has been featured on MSNBC’s The Big Idea, TV Guide Network’s The Fashion Team, ABC and NBC fashion segments, AlphaMom TV, Celebrity Baby Blog, Chicago Social Magazine, Cool Mom Picks, Daily Candy Kids, Time Out Chicago, as well as Lucky Magazine.
