As a young woman growing up in Australia, Aden and Anais founder Raegan Moya-Jones was introduced to many traditional practices of motherhood. One of them in particular-- swaddling babies in generously sized, gentle muslin sheets-- amazed her. Even the fussiest babies seemed to sleep more peacefully in muslin. Despite the hot days and the cold nights, muslin swaddles helped keep babies comfortable. And, most importantly, the very act of swaddling seemed to build a bond between mothers and their babies.  

These extremely popular muslin cotton swaddles are great for not only swaddling babies but as stroller covers, nursing covers, burp cloths and so much more.  The light weave of the muslin keeps both mom and baby cool in the heat and warm when chilly. Their extra large size (47x47) is made even better by the adorable prints.

In addition to these fabulous swaddling blankets, the brand now also offers sleeping bags to be worn over baby's pjs, eliminating the need for loose blankets, bibs with dual function as burp cloth, and towel & washcloth sets.

Word has spread quickly among Hollywood mommies. Aden and Anais blankets have been spotted with the likes of Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Garner, Sarah Jessica Parker, Nicole Richie, Julia Roberts, Naomi Watts and many more.

Actress Deborah Raffin, best known for her role in the series 7th Heaven, and appearances on popular shows such as Law & Order SVU and ER, recently sent CBS her adorable children's book, Mitzi's World.  The busy actress, author and mom, who currently stars in The Secret Life of the American Teenager, sat down to chat with us about the book, the transition from actress to author, her friendship with folk artist Jane Wooster Scott, and being a mom to 9-year old Taylor Rose.  

CBS:  You're well known for your role on 7th Heaven as Aunt Julie.  How did you make the transition from actress to author?  Or were you always doing both? 

DR:  I was an audio book and book publisher for almost 20 years (through Dove Audio/Books/Entertainment) and I ran a childrens' inprint, "Dove Kids" for about 18 years.
 
CBS:  Why did you decide to write a children's book?  What was the inspiration behind this story? 

DR:  I have collected my friend, Jane Wooster Scott's art for close to 30 years. Her work to me was perfect for a childrens' book, so it was a joy and great fun to create and write Mitzi's World.
 
CBS:  Part of the proceeds of the book goes to Friends of Animal Rescue.  Is this a personal cause of yours?  Is the main character, Mitzi based on a rescue dog? 

DR:  I have always had a soft spot for animals, since my childhood with all my cats, dogs and even a monkey, which my brother had as a pet! Mitzi was a childhood dog of Jane's, whom she placed in most of her paintings and since I was working backwards, writing and creating a book around existing art, it was wonderful that we had an adorable dog to headline our book!
 
CBS:  What do you want kids to get out of the reading the book? 

DR:  Reading is a very important way for people of all ages to exercise their imaginations.  Also, through this book, kids can learn about different cultures, place themselves in different worlds and stimulate their joy of writing and creating.
 
CBS:  Do you have a favorite children's book from when you were a child? 

DR:  Soooo many, however my nine year old daughter has re-introduced Nancy Drew to me.  What fun and a great role model for girls! 
 
CBS:  You have a daughter, Taylor-Rose.  How old is she and what is she into? 

DR:  Taylor-Rose loves to read, draw, write, sing and play numerous sports such as tennis, Karate, hand ball and swimming.  She was also a great editor for the book!
 
CBS: How do you balance being a mom and having a successful career?

DR:  Taylor-Rose is my number one priority.  Everything else comes after her needs which is not always an easy balance!
 
CBS:  Are you working on other books? 

DR:  Yes, I am in the process of creating a new childrens book/series and working on Mitzi's World  Book 2.
 
CBS:  Are you still acting as well?  If so, what are some current projects? 

DR:  Yes, I currently play a doctor on the hit TV show "The Secret Life Of The American Teenager".

Mitzi's World main character is Mitzi, a white dog with black spots and a red collar, who explores towns, farms, and the countryside of America.  Mitzi loves to discover new things and searches for them throughout the year in villages nestled in the snows of New England, in towns amid rolling fields and hills, at the beaches along the eastern coastline, and by the harbors and bays of the West coast. 

Follow Mitzi as she appears in each amazing painting, created by folkartist Jane Wooster Scott, along with plenty of other details to spy as well.  Kids will enjoy traveling through the country, looking at the beautiful paintings and making a game out of finding all kinds of fun details such as: a white kitty, nine flags, 5 seagulls, 6 children, 10 pine trees, 4 sailboats and many more "I Spy" types of objects. 

Mitzi's world is available at Amazon.com and other bookstores.

Have you ever worn a piece of jewelry that EVERYONE commented on?  I found out quickly, that I (or should I say my necklace) was on everyone's radar when I wore my calendar necklace from Dalla Nonna Jewelry.  This exquisite piece features a calendar month on a delicate chain with a beautiful sapphire placed on a date of your choosing (birthday, kids birthday, anniversary, etc.).

The calendar necklace is Dalla Nonna's signature piece, it exemplifies Dalla Nonna's blend of tradition and trend by combining vintage chic with modern elegance.  Each piece is executed in 14k gold (rose, yellow or white) or sterling silver. And it allows the wearer to keep a special date close to her heart. 

Dalla Nonna translates (from Italian) to mean "from the grandmother" and is designed by Rebecca Richards and Jessica Bohrer, who are lawyers by day and jewelry designers by night.  Inspired by vintage pieces handed down from their mothers and grandmothers, Becca and Jess fell in love with the idea of taking something old and making it new again. 

Tinseltown moms Courteney Cox and Jessica Alba are among the many who have fallen in love with this necklace!

Looking for accessories that are on trend, but not saturated via mass market chains?  Celebrity Baby Scoop has found a fun, niche, online boutique based in Paris, (ok now we KNOW they're on trend), that specializes in must-have essentials for your wardrobe.  Je Ne Sais Quoi (meant to call to mind the French expression "that certain something" or that certain "I don't know what...") puts together seasonal looks featuring 5 must-have items made of edgy, yet elegant accessories created by up-and-coming designers from all over the world. 


The company recently sent me the Catherine Michiels Holy Trinity Bracelet in honor of the upcoming Valentine's Day holiday.  The inscription on the back of one of the charms reads "I'll Never Stop Loving You" making it the perfect Valentine's Day gift (have you left out your hint hint list yet?)  The Holy Trinity is the symbol of love, protection, enlightenment, spiritual awakening and peace, in the form of the Always, the Mudra and the Lotus pendants. The Mudra pendant, a hand with a 1.2 pt diamond in the palm, protects against the evil eye. The Always pendant with the love inscription inspires loving yourself first, then going on to love others while The Lotus is the symbol of purity, peace and enlightenment.  All three pendants are made of sterling silver and and come on a silk tie which can be worn as either a bracelet or a necklace.  You may select up to two additional ties with each bracelet purchase. 


No matter what your vision, focus, mantra, intention, this designer has a charm for each one.  Each of Catherine's 20 different charms has a special meaning envisioned by the designer herself.  Other bracelets in the collection include: the Gold Zinnia (for absent friends/family), Le Petit Max (good luck), the Lily de Paris (innocence, purity and perfection) among others. Ideal for both casual and dressy occasions, wearing jewelry that's made and worn with intention and soul, tends to draw attention and, in my experience, many compliments! 


Catherine Michiels is a Belgian, L.A.-based designer with a loyal celebrity following including big names such as : Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry, and Julia Roberts all of whom have become fans of the spiritual bracelets. 


Special Sale:  30-60% off at ShopJeNeSaisQuoi.com through February 9th and FREE international shipping.  Once the sale ends, international shipping will be FREE for purchases over $220 (approximately).
