The Germs

December 9th, 2010

Are a late 70s/early 80s punk rock band.

Are on shopping carts and totally gross me out.

I am actually not a germophobe but, for some reason, shopping carts super gross me out.

And by the looks of the booming cottage industry of shopping cart covers, many a parent are freaked out too, apparently.

When my daughter, now 5, was first born, shopping cart covers were just breaking onto the scene—and they were pretty dang ugly. I always wondered why they had to be made from such hideously patterned fabric.

Did it take a certain level of ugly to sufficiently scare away the germs?

Nowadays, there’s a wide variety of shopping cart covers available but the handmade ones from The Sassy Princess really stand out amongst a sea of eh.

So, if you’re going to spend your hard-earned moolah on something and use it weekly (if not more), shouldn’t it be fabulous?

And trust me, germs are just as scared of fabulous as they are of ugly. Germs hate adjectives.

Kelly, the talented owner of The Sassy Princess, makes a high design, high quality cart cover, complete with an ultra padded seat cover, bottle pockets, toy loops, minkie dot pillow and carrying bag.

You can choose from a wide selection of chic fabrics and even gets yours monogrammed.

Baby will be sitting pretty in the lap of luxury, you’ll love your precious purchase and the now demoralized germs will be fabuloused into oblivion.

Trendy mom: One.

Gross germs: Zilch

Today’s Gift Worth Giving: Designer Car Seat Covers from NamelyNewborns.com

December 1st, 2010

A designer car seat cover is an important gift to give (and get). Why? Because Mom will be looking at it constantly so she’d better love it (as in loooooooove it).

When it comes to car seats, safety is the No. 1 priority, but once you’ve got that down, adding a little pizzazz to a kiddo’s main mode of transportation is a must.

Parents-to-be will go ga-ga for a design that brightens the backseat.

A wide (and fabulous) selection of fabulous car seat covers are available at Namely Newborns, a site started by two grandmas who wanted only the best for their pride-and-joy grandkids weren’t finding what they were looking for—so they started an online boutique that would carry just the kind of products they wanted: unique, durable and personalized.

Many of the car seat covers the site carries also have matching shopping cart covers. Mommy will love knowing that Baby is protected from germs when he or she is sitting pretty in one of these luxurious and comfortable covers.

Fashion-meets-function bonus: The chic designs do double duty as highchair covers too.
