Lady In Red
Thursday, January 27, 2005
One click to Julie Hewett's site and you'll be seeing red.  The kind of red she's artistically placed on the faces of Nicole Kidman, Hilary Swank and Annette Bening.  The looks from movies like Oceans 11, Spiderman 2 and Pearl Harbor that have shone beyond the silver screen are all thanks to Julie.  Her philosophy in creating her own cosmetics line is that, despite an overcrowded cosmetics market, true classic shades were still missing.  We couldn't agree more.  Editors are raving about the non-drying effects of her petroleum-free Cheekies lip and cheek tints ($20).  We fancy her new signature fragrance, carefully composed of essential oils imported from India all bottled up in a fantastic package that sort of resembles a pepper mill (but far more beautiful).  And we're really mad about her limited edition hatbox set that lets you pick your favorite shimmy, cheekie and lipstick for $55 and arrives at your door in a chic, vintage style hatbox.  Missing the kind of red lipsticks that made the Marilyn's of this world pop before our eyes?  They're a cinch to find at JulieHewett.net.

Rock On
Wednesday, January 26, 2005
What do Demi Moore, Christina Applegate, and Brooke Burke have in common?  They're all scooping up Glamajama's line of playfully studded clothing for women, babies, tweens and dogs. The line is setting trends and quickly finding its way into celebrity closets.  Created in early '03 by then first-time mom, Heather Nolte, her styles are creating quite the buzz.  Each of her personality driven designs is set on super soft, comfy fabric.  Who can't help but notice a baby strolling around in a tee that says Drooler or Outlaw?  A "Knockout Tot" walking into their first karate class?  Or a dog roaming the hood in a Rodeo Queen Tee?  Demi's daughters have the "sugar", "babygirl", and "LOVE" tees.  And Paris Hilton's dogs are all glammed to go too.

A Change Will Do You Good
The Weekend Edition 
Any mom will tell you that trying to change baby's diaper on one of those rectangular changing pads provided in most diaper bags these days requires a skill we're simply not born with.  How many times does baby roll off the mat and hit a cold floor (or worse yet, a host's couch) before you can stick the velcro tabs on to fasten the diaper?  Babies were meant to move.  Why someone hadn't thought of this ingenious idea before is beyond us.  Thankfully, Patemm Pads are here to save you!  Available in lots of fun fabrics and colors, these tieless wonders let you lay down your little one any which way you can.   Moms who've used them can't rave enough about how portable and convenient they are.  $20 for a small version with no pockets (24 inches) to $38 for a large size with pockets.  And now there's a Pitaka ($7), which in the Philippines means little purse or pouch.  It serves to hold wipes (in a small resealable plastic bag), small ointments, and whatever else you can think of to make changing a more soothing experience for you and your tot.
