The new Kardashian Kids Collection will be debuting exclusively at Babies ‘R’ Us on March 15, the collection for girls will include 30 pieces for newborns to ages 24 months. The line ranges from newborn onesies, snuggly caps and cozy blankets to two-piece sets, jackets and dresses.  It features trendy details such as peplums, lace, leatherette, gold trim and animal print.  Prices range from $14.99 to $29.99.

“Since becoming a mom, I’ve been so inspired to create Kardashian Kids with perfect prints, heavenly fabrics for a baby’s skin and to bring fashion to the baby world that is affordable,” said Kourtney, mother of Mason and Penelope.

“We started this idea when Kourtney was pregnant with Penelope,” said Kim, mother of North. ”It was mainly Kourtney who was the inspiration, but as I got pregnant, I started to chime in. Until you have your own child, you don’t realize how important it is for fabrics to be extra soft and accessible.”

Khloe added, “We hope the charming patterns and the uniquely stylish items are gifts new parents will be delighted to open.”

Kardashian Kids items will retail from $15 to $30 and will be available at all Babies”R”Us stores and online by clicking here. Fans can stay up-to-date on the latest Kardashian Kids news by following on Facebook , Instagram and Twitter.

I’m certainly impressed. Tell me what you think in the comments below! Will you be buying?

It feels really good to get out and spend time with my gal pals. I try to make this a weekly habit. Not only do I actually get to have real grown-up conversations, I get to play dress up, look like a grown-up and try different hot spots for brunch and dinner. As I wait for a cab, I cherish the time I can actually sit down, take a breath of fresh air and sift thru my emails or read my texts. Ironically as it is for a blogger, I don’t spend a ton of time in front of my laptop or scrolling on my iPhone. I use this weekly time I have to myself to deepen the relationships I have with my friends in person, as well as thru social media.

Play Date at the National Building Museum: Real Mom Style

I’m always exploring Washington DC with my kids. One of our favorite museums is The National Building Museum. It’s one of the best indoor venues for keeping my kids active and entertained during the winter months while I can actually get a break and finally page thru my favorite magazines. I try to take the kids there once a week, with half the day spent at the Play, Work, Build exhibit and the Building Zone. It’s also one of my absolute favorite places to host my kids birthday parties.

A Snowy Day in Clarendon: Real Mom Style

There’s been a number of Snow Days since the beginning of 2014, which gives me pure joy. I love layering up in warm, cozy pieces. Winter weather inspires me to get in touch with my sartorial side more than any other season. I love the textures of all the fabrics and I enjoy the challenge of coming up with a warm, yet fashionable outfit complete with casual and polished outer wear. During the duration of the winter months,  you can expect to see me in a lot of black and gray, not only because it’s effortless, but those colors area always chic and timeless.  I especially love wearing a pop of faux fur to jazz up the look.

Eco-Friendly & Vegan Baby Products: Orico LONDON Little Love

ORICO LONDON LITTLE LOVE BABY PRODUCTS

image001 image003 image002

I love trying new beauty products on myself! But, when it comes to my kids–I’m very careful about what I put on their skin. As a general rule of thumb, I test it on my own sensitive skin for at least a week to see how it affects my skin before slathering on any new products on their delicate skin. My son Logan is the most sensitive with very dry flaky skin with a touch of eczema. However, after I used the full line of Orico London Little Loveproducts on him, his skin actually improved! I am pleasantly surprised! It only takes about a dime size of theGentle Soothing Body Wash to lather the entire body of a four year old and about a quarter size squeeze of theProtecting Baby Skin Balm.  My kids actually really like the soft, honey and royal jelly scented fragrance of the products. It personally reminds me of the sweet smell of a beloved lady who used to own the local downtown pharmacy that I used to frequent as a child, a place my mom purchased all of my skin care products. Thankfully, products have come a very long way since then. OricoLondon products are free from parabens, are certified natural and organic, using pure, natural ingredients and are entirely free from Sulphates, DEA, PEGS, Petroleum, Mineral Oils, Artificial Fragrances and Colors, Silicones, TEA, formaldehyde releasing preservatives (quaternium 15, imidazolidinyl urea, DMDM hydantoin, 2-bromo-2-nitropropane-1, 3-Diol), phthalates, propylene glycol, and 1,4-Dioxane. And Orico has the Ecocert guarantee, which gives me 100% peace of mind.
