The Fabulous Miss Jodi Renee

Yesterday we were lucky enough to be photographed by the fabulous Miss Jodi Renee - the entire experience and end result is just too great not to share!  

Being photographed at 39 weeks pregnant can be a little daunting to say the least, but as you can see she has all kinds of magic she can work as she has managed to take the only photograph of myself that I can stand to look at right now!  =D

Jodi's available for shoots of all kind and you can check out more of her amazing work at or contact her directly at to set something up.  She's available for sessions here in Calgary, in Toronto (or really anywhere!).

Thank You from the bottom of our hearts Jodi.

Organic Storage Bins from 3 Sprouts!

The organic hooded towels we had in the store a while back from 3 Sprouts were a hit and I am so loving these new organic storage bins they just came out with!  These organic canvas bins are fun and quirky, and are great in a nursery or living for storing away toys, blankies, books and more!  They are a good size, about 1.5 ft x 1.5 ft but can be folded up small for easy storage when not in use.  Cotton handles on the sides make them easy to carry.

Available at Pink or Blue, $42 CAD.

Momspit - Inspired by the Original

I have just realized that all this time I have never blogged about Momspit!

Momspit is a no rinse cleanser for the hands and face. We've had this product at Pink or Blue for a while now and have so many mom's who swear by it. In fact, before we decided to carry it at Pink or Blue, we actually had some of our power mom's try it out for us. Only after several rave reviews did Momspit become a Pink or Blue staple.

The number one question we get about Momspit is
"How does Momspit differ from a hand sanitizer like Purell?"

(from MomSpit is an alcohol free moussing liquid designed to clean, moisturize and lift your senses with its fresh scent and dirt removing magic. Inspired by the original, it's made to clean those dirt disasters when you're not near a kitchen or bathroom sink. There's no replacement for traditional soap and water washing. That said, MomSpit is a great alternative when clean running water is not available, and it was formulated in a lab to help prevent the growth and spread of bacteria.

Sanitizers are designed primarily to kill 99.9% of germs and are best used as a supplement to regular washing. They were not uniquely designed to get gas pump grunge off your hand on your morning dash to work, or ketchup off your child's face on a picnic or in the back seat of your car. Real world experience at work, home, on the move and in our groove inspired us to create a product that we would use because life's filled with MomSpit moments.

For more information, come on by the store or check out the Momspit site at

the HOTTEST bottles!

We just got our new shipment of Babylife's Wee Go bottles in the store and I just realized that I didn't blog about them the last time around. We first got these bottles in just before the holiday season and they FLEW off the shelves.

When I was doing my research on bottles for our (soon to be little one), I happened across an article in consumer report regarding so called "BPA free" bottles. They did a study and found trace amounts of BPA in all plastic "BPA free" bottles. SO - that settled that, glass it would be.
How fab are these wee go glass bottles? What I love about these bottles:
1) Silicone sleeves in fab fab designer colors
2) Silicone nipples are made in France
3) Silicone sleeves designed so that you can still see how much is left in the bottle
4) Sleeve and bottle can be boiled or put in the dishwasher together, no need to remove
5) 2 sizes, 4 oz and 9 oz
6) Medium, fast, and Y cut nipples also available
7) BPA FREE!!!
Available at Pink or Blue, $18 - $22.

How cute are these??? Home grown too! Straight out of Toronto Canada, meet Bradley, Colin, Douglas, Kyle and Mr. Jefferson. Cuddly and plush, each one comes with its own unique personality and story ... check it out!

andy never misses an opportunity to act out scenes from his favorite movie... in detail... with sound effects.
against his parent's wishes bradley is determined to make it on his own... even without his allowance.

buddy is surprisingly deep for someone who spends so much of his time zoned out.

colin divides his time between playing video games and fretting about his future.

douglas is fascinated by the cosmos and gets nervous in confined spaces.

kyle has remarkable computational abilities and is a bit of a hypochondriac.

mr. jefferson conducts himself in a gracious manner, though he has been known to lose his temper while playing board games.

Fair Trade Rattles

As a new mom-to-be, I'm amazed at how much more aware I am of where things are made and what they are made of. That's why when I came across these great knit rattles from Yellow Label Kids on our recent trip to LA, I just had to get them in the store.

Fairly traded, 100% handmade by mothers who make real wages from the handcrafts they produce - these knit rattles are a happy alternative to mass produced, commercial toys.

Come by and check them out at Pink or Blue. These are just a few of my fave's ...
