Get Hoppin Easter is on the Way!

Like most of us, we are ready for the sounds of Spring... robins chirping, flowers blooming and warm sunshine. And of course the Easter Bunny and all his delightful treats! We've found some delightful Easter dresses from Amacello to welcome Spring and the Easter bunny!

A simply gorgeous panel dress from Amacello and wow a great price too! It's fully lined, exceptional quality and unique design make this a great find! Another great dress from Amacello and yup it's a great price too, their Frill dress. Dainty floral patterns, soft creams and hot pinks combined to create a stunning dress.

What's great about these dresses (not only the great price and quality) is that they are special enough for an Easter occasion, but they can be worn again (shocking I know) for graduations, weddings, family photographs, birthday's and more!

Celebrity Baby Buzz

Okay, admit it we are all suckers for the hollywood and entertainment gossip--especially baby news. We feel like we know Jennifer and just can't believe her marriage to Brad (yep, on a first name basis-these are our personal friends-right!?) fell apart. Is the pending marriage of Tom and Kate a charade (and most importantly, what will they dress there little girl in!). How will Heather recover after her divorce from rocker Richie Sambora. And most important, who's pregnant, who's just had a baby and when will we see the pictures? We've found the best blog with daily updates on who, what and where check out www.celebrity-babies.com

Twirly Girl

Does it twirl she asks? It not only twirls it rocks! The Spring Cakewalk features a simply gorgeous Cakewalk Pink Cyclaam Swirly Sundress with two layers of ruffles to delight even the most twirly girls. Made of poplin cotton, a fuschia fabric with floral and botanical designs. For those girls that don't like dresses, they've got some amazing skirt sets as well. To please the ruffle in her, a cotton/lycra striped tee with stretchy lace sleeves paired with a hot pink wrap ruffle (an its reversible) skirt. Another one of our favorites is a soft pink tank with stretchy hot pink lace overlay, an fantastic floral scalloped skirt with a hot pink underskirt. The designs from Cakewalk clothing season after season never disappoint! If you've never given them a try, now is the time-you'll love it!

Beachtime Pizzazz

Show some pizzazz at this beach/pool this Summer! Azul swimwear from Brazil has some great looks this Summer, she'll love. Our favorite is their Gabriella collection, a wonderful combination of animal and floral patterns. Bright lime greens, melon and brown floral, pink and white stripes, and brown zebra prints make these suits a definite must for the Summer season! Styles from a tankini to a triange bikini, but you've got to add the skirt for the complete look! If your looking for something a bit more playful, their Playa collection is sure to thrill her! Light blue overall fabric with beach umbrella's in orange and yellows, beach towels, and florals make up this fun pattern. The Trinkini is fantastic! 2 swimsuits in one, a tankini top or a triangle top and bottoms. Dive right into Summer with any of these great swimsuits from Azul. Splash!

See Mommy Run!

Okay so it's not about any trendy styles, but mom's need good mental health and healthy bodies or we can't shop for those fantastic outfit! I stumbled upon this website www.seemommyrun.com and support strong and healthy moms, and I think it is so important to teach your kids a healthy lifestyle--so check it out. Any mom can tell you about the changes kids bring to your life, physically (yes you can get that pre-baby body back, its just HARD work), mentally and emotionally. As I read about Andrea Vincent's story, moving to a new place, feeling isolated and finding it difficult to meet new people, and how she started www.seemommyrun.com. I was intrigued. She searched for existing running groups online and came up empty handed. After the birth of her daughter in August 2004, she officially launcher the site. She figured that if she could meet five moms in her area who enjoyed running, she would be happy. Within 7 months, 750 women had signed up. Since then, Vincent has established groups in nine other states with a total of over 2,000 members. So come on girls, find a running group in your neighborhood and hit the road!

Vintage Casual Look for Boys--it's HOT!

One of the hottest looks for boys this year is the Vintage Casual Look. Boys love this look because it is comfy, casual and looks cool. This look is all about layering, and choosing pieces that have a retro look to them and a pre-worn feel. City Threads Spring line offers just that, boys tee's with a vintage look and feel. 100% soft comfy cotton with cool screen-prints that even he will go wild for. With retro-feeling themes such as rock & roll (we've all got a little in us), the playround (who can resist the swings) and the beach (is there any place better?).

Psychedelic Chic

The seventies may be a thing of the past, but tie dye is back and more hip than ever, says Stephanie Silver of Earnshaw's. Out of Control tie dyed collection for Spring 2006 is not only hip, its HOT! Stunning colors swirled together, hot pink and oranges and cool aquas and greens. Sassy ruffled sundresses, comfy bermuda shorts and skirts sets, the line offers casual playwear to playful dresses and skirts.

Sheen Kidz--Charlie Sheen Kids Clothing Designer?

I happened to see in People Magazine that Charlie Sheen (yes, the actor) will be launching a line of kids clothes this Spring... called Sheen Kidz. A little disappointed in the name, sounds a bit cheap, couldn't he have been a bit more creative? Supposed to be for sizes infant up through 6x. He says his inspiration comes from his two girls. You never know, maybe it will be a hit.
