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!

The fragrance truly captures that feeling—it's very sensual, very romantic and alluring.”

Available through Avon, this beautiful fragrance collection consists of the Eau de Parfum ($34), Limited Edition Parfum ($59), Body Mist ($15) Body Lotion ($15) and a Shower Gel ($15).

Known for some of the most comfortable nursing bras on the market, Bravado! Designs has launched two brand new dazzling styles for nursing moms! Both styles are extremely comfortable and look very attractive and I especially love the matching underwear which completes the set! There is no longer a need for nursing mothers to sacrifice style for comfort as these bras offer both. 

The Sublime is a lace bra which is extremely airy and lightweight and offers a surprising amount of support even for those with larger breasts. It also features Bravado's proprietary double-cup sizing to accommodate changing shape. The multiple panels create a beautiful shape and full support without underwire which is wonderful for those in the early months of nursing. Available in French Vanilla, Black and Black Cherry (my personal favourite), this bra is perfect for those missing their pretty lingerie pieces!

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).

Mom-of-three and five-time Grammy Award winner Faith Hill, recently unveiled her debut perfume and I recently had the opportunity to test out this much buzzed about fragrance. The bottle itself is elegant and vintage-inspired with a delicate black grosgrain ribbon tied around the collar. Just sitting on your bedroom or bathroom vanity alone would make a timeless statement!

The fragrance Faith Hill is not a typical heady floral and I was actually quite surprised with the subtle warmth when I tested it. Inspired by the "luminous radiance at the heart of every woman", Faith Hill Parfums "A Sparkling Floral Bouquet" has notes of aromatic crisp pear, refreshing neroli, lush pink peony, bold yet delicate southern magnolia, exotic jasmine, gardenia, smooth cashmere skin musk, calming iris and smoky vetiver. I found it to be very sophisticated and elegant unlike some of the "teeny bopper" fragrances I've tried in the past. 

Available in sizes 15 ml  ($18) , 30 ml ($24.50) and 50 ml ($31.50), Faith Hill Parfums is available at a wide range of department stores including JCPenney and Sears. 

Visit Faith Hill Fragrances for exclusive interviews and Q & A with Faith Hill! You can even catch the amazing country music star live on webcam January 13th, 20th, 27th and February 3rd at 1 pm EST to hear answers to questions asked by her fans.

As a work at home mom always on the go, my best friends are my Blackberry and iPod Touch.  To protect these babies, I have tried a few different cases however nothing has come close to the high quality Sena Cases. This fabulous company offers a wide range of covers and cases for phones, pdas, gaming devices and cameras each individually handcrafted with the finest European leather.

Over the last few weeks, I tested out a couple of Sena's most popular styles. For my Blackberry I opted for the MagnetFlipper in red crocodile. This innovative design utilizes a magnetic closure on the padded and cushioned flap, which can be accessed with the flick of your thumb. I love the energy-saving sleep function which activates once you close the case, thus saving battery life. I can now toss my phone in my diaper bag without worrying about it scratching or getting banged up. All of the cutouts are perfectly aligned and don't hinder the use of controls in the least. There is also a removable metal clip system for those of you who like your phone clipped to a belt.

For my iPod I decided to go with the Milano Flip and definitely wasn't disappointed!
The slim curve-hugging leather design was a welcome change from the clunky case I used previously.  No need to remove your iPod from the Milano Flip in order to use it! There is a soft velvet lining with light protective layers and cutouts for ports for play and "touch" functionality. Looking for a place to store a couple of business cards? Pop a couple in the Multi-purpose pocket and your good to go! All in all the Milano is one of the most stylish iPod cases I've seen.

I will mention that once I received these cases the leather seemed a tad too snug however I was assured by Sena that the leather would soften and "give in" after a couple days - which it has.  The leather is now buttery soft and both devices fit perfectly!

All cases come in a red velvet bag, packaged in a glossy box. If you are looking for the perfect gift,  especially for that special person who has "everything" -  this is it! Even Martha Stewart and Eva Longoria are fans of this fabulous company.

While running our business, taking care of my two little ones and everything else that goes on in a day, organizing our life on scraps of paper and by memory doesn't work so well. After receiving the momAgenda Desktop Planner, my life has become so much more organized and I've been able to manage my time more efficiently. It has truly been the ultimate lifesaver!

What I love the most about this planner:

* 17 months of weekly and monthly pages

The first section is split up into months like a regular calendar for spaces to jot down upcoming appointments, dates or any notes you might have.

The weekly section (my personal favorite) has a spot "My Week" with which to jot down notes or plans for A.M, Noon & P.M.  as well as spaces to keep track of daily activities for up to 4 separate children. I can neatly and efficiently organize everyone's to-dos and schedules all on one page!

* Double ribbons for bookmarking

These are great when you want to keep your "spot" on more than one page. 

* The lists of important holidays, websites, online resources and Toll-free numbers are extremely handy.

* Removable & reusable momEssentials pamphlet.

Not only is this booklet an address book, but it has pages to store important information, phone numbers, websites, passwords, birthdays and anniversaries.

*Available in a wide variety of stylish and stain-resistant colors with personalization options available. I personally love their faux crocodile covers!

Although the cost is a little higher compared to other planners , the momAgenda Desktop provides elegance, style and everything you could possibly need in a day planner. 

Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman "Loves" her momAgenda while country crooner Brad Paisley's wife Kimberly Williams Paisley,  calls the products "Genuis!"

momAgenda has kindly offered our readers here at Celebrity Baby Scoop an exclusive 20% discount on everything in their store. Discount code CELEBMOM is valid until 10/31/09.
