Hedvig Bourbon - Stroller Totes & Accessories

Hedvig Bourbon is a new line of stroller totes and accessories designed with emphasis on function and style. The designer was inspired to create the collection after she searched for a chic bag that could double as a diaper bag for her son Lucas. When everything she found seemed unpractical and dated, the Hedvig Bourbon collection was born.

Visually the collection has a touch of whimsical - with fresh colors and bold prints. It currently includes the Lucas Stroller Tote, Judabee Pouch, Amelie Stroller Liner & Santo Clutch.

See below for details:

Hedvig Bourbon's signature product is the Lucas Stroller Tote and is designed for Moms & Dads on the move. It has a unique strap design that hooks around the handles of your stroller and can be easily converted from a stroller tote to an over-the-shoulder bag. In addition, there are several pockets to help you stay organized - a large pocket in the back with a magnetic snap for changing pad, and 2 pockets on the front for other quick access needs. Inside the tote are 2 pockets for diapers, wipes and bottle, a deep zipper pocket, and an interior cell phone pocket and key-ring clip.

Need a smaller pouch for your baby? You will love the convenience of the Judabee Pouch! I received mine a few weeks ago and was immediately drawn to the beautiful interior & exterior colors, the quality of the fabric and the amazing stiching. The pouch had beautiful details and is designed with a wrist handle, magnetic snap closure and opens up revealing two pockets for diapers & wipes. It was really easy to use the pouch on-the-go by just slipping it in my handbag or by hanging it on Brianna's stroller handle when we went out for errands or walks - my favorite!

Looking for your baby to have something comfy to lie on in the stroller? The Amelie Stroller Liner blends function and style creating a clean and cozy environment for your baby in the stroller. The stroller liner is designed to fit the harness of most strollers on the market. The front is in a deluxe 100% cotton terry velour with cotton canvas for the back lining and borders in print fabric matching the stroller tote and other accessories.

The Santo Clutch folds out with 2 built-in pockets for diapers & wipes and has a wrist handle making it a chic and neat all-in-one changing pad. It has a light padding and is soft for your baby to lie on. For easy cleaning, the inner lining is water repellent and stain resistant.

The Hedvig Bourbon Collection colors include Navy Denim, Sage, Fuchsia and Turquoise with matching interior lining patterns. All fabrics and materials are of the highest quality to ensure that the stroller totes and accessories stand up to the rigors of everyday use. You can purchase yours online by clicking here!

Chic Tips from Liz Lange

Tip One: Make Yourself a Priority
Liz Lange recommends that you schedule at least one hour each week just for you. Go for a quick trip to the mall or get a manicure, but without the kids in tow. If getting out of the house is impossible, then schedule an hour each week for a hot, relaxing bubble bath.

Tip Two: Shop Online
“A new mother once told me that she found the perfect Prada purse while breastfeeding,” says Liz. “That is the beauty of shopping online.” Liz advises that before you begin shopping online, you should familiarize yourself with the sizes and fits of the designer or brand. Once you know how their clothes fit your body, you will virtually eliminate the need for any returns.
New mom's can also shop online for their baby and any of their other children at Splendid Littles have the most cozy, luxe onesis and are available for ages 6-12 months thru 7 years old. That will make you a fashionable mommy for sure!

Tip Three: Fashion Swap
To save time and money, Liz suggests that moms get together once a season to swap clothes, shoes and accessories with their friends and family. “Try swapping kid’s clothes and toys too,” says Liz. “It’s not only practical, but it’s fun.”
The Fashion Swap can be more than just clothing...La Loop also has fantastic necklaces with a function for the mom on the go. The necklaces have a loop for you to hang the arm of your eyewear. Now you will have a place to put your glasses while taking care of the new baby or meeting with her friends for the Fashion Swap!

Rose Petal Cottage

I kept seeing advertising for this new playset from Playskool - so I decided to check it out. The Rose Petal Cottage is a place where your daughter can play, imagine and discover. A lightweight cottage that's made just for her with beautiful appliances and accessories that she can arrange however she likes and also easy to store away. A home that's small enough to be cozy...and big enough for a world of make-believe.

Lightweight yet strong, roomy yet wonderfully cozy, the Rose Petal Cottage comes in two halves that nest neatly together after play. Each piece is designed and crafted with premium materials, creating a play environment that looks beautiful in your home. Plus the Rose Petal Cottage includes a little blue play stove with knobs that turn and an oven that really opens.

Best of all, the Rose Petal Cottage can be furnished with a wide selection of the prettiest household amenities from the DREAM TOWN Collection, including the washing machine, kitchen sink and nursery set. And don't forget the DREAM TOWN signature rose print lounge chair and muffin baking set (each sold separately)! The DREAM TOWN Collection gives your little girl the house of her dreams, right next to the nicest neighbor she knows – you!
