Unique Pregnancy Announcements To Blab Your Big Secret

Announcing baby news is always an exciting time and it has changed over the years with options to get more creative and personalized to your interests.

Recently actress, Vinessa Shaw who many of you may remember from Hocus Pocus (one of my favorite Halloween movies) announced she was expecting. The following day she posted again to her Instagram but this time it was an amazing design which features the Sanderson sisters (featured below) and this created tons of buzz on how this was the perfect way to announce her pregnancy.

But who created this cool announcement and is there more?

It was Baby Blabber and Yes, Yes there is!

We were thrilled to get some inside scoop on Baby Blabber by interviewing the creator, Gina.

Tell me a little about yourself.

Talking about myself is always awkward. I guess I can say I’m a self proclaimed 80’s geek which is why you can see a lot of inspiration coming from my favorite 80’s movies. I’m very happily married, but no kids yet. In real life, I am an event planner and deal mostly with wedding planning, birthdays, and Sweet 16s.

What types of products do you create?

I create fun, themed pregnancy announcements to help people tell their family and friends that they are expecting. There are announcements where you can incorporate a positive pregnancy test or a sonogram picture. All of which are instantly downloadable so there’s no waiting to have something shipped to you. Seems to work well for those instant gratification people such as myself.

What inspired you to create and design?

The inspiration originally came from me picturing how I would one day tell my husband that we were expecting. After playing around on the internet and seeing people do the same things over and over, I decided to come up with my own ideas. The original ideas were all based on things in our life. My husband is a huge Top Gun fan hence the Wingman announcement. He also likes the NY Mets and so Baby Blabber was born.

How did you come up with your business name?

The business name came pretty quickly. It kind of is the definition of what these announcements do. It’s probably one of the biggest secrets you could have and I’m assuming a pretty tough one to keep. Might as well have a fun way to blab that reflects your personality.

What are your business aspirations? Where would you like to see your business in five years?

Business aspirations is a tough question. I launched Baby Blabber as a fun “side hustle” as people call it. Some people sell leggings and shakes. I sell funny announcements to expecting moms. Would it be great if it took off so I could eventually be a stay at home mom? Absolutely, but I genuinely enjoy helping other people during such an amazing time in their lives. I guess we’ll see where it takes me.

There you have it! Some insider scoop on the business that sparked so much media buzz!

Special thank you to Gina for taking the time to speak with me and for the opportunity to feature her creative business on Momma Braga.

There are so many more great designs to check out on the Baby Blabber Etsy page so make sure to check it out and they are now on the Momma Braga recommended list! Also make sure to follow them on Facebook and Instagram as you don’t want to miss what Gina does next. I am sure there will be much more success for this cool 80’s geek and I can’t wait to see it! 😉

Until next time…Happy Parenting!

Schnuffelinis’ Shark Towel Is Making A Splash!

Being able to showcase different companies and products on the #MelandNikkiReview is always neat and fun to do. I especially love showcasing companies from all over the world.

Let me introduce you to Schnuffelinis which is located in Deutschland. They create clothing such as baby tuxedos, bath robes and baby accessories and so much more.

The product that we got to see was the shark bath robe for infants and it was absolutely adorable!

The package came neatly wrapped with the product and a business card. The towel was very soft, very cute and the perfect size for a newborn baby. The hooded part of the towel is perfect for a baby’s head and having the towel tie in the middle is great to keep the baby bundled after bath time.

For this #MelandNikkiReview, we give Bare Babies 5 Jaws out of 5 for the quality, uniqueness and cuteness factor. They also have an adorable owl towel design that you will need to check it out too!

Make sure to check Schnuffelinis website to see all the neat items they have and if you would like to get more information from them, feel free to email them at service@schnuffelinis.de.

Until next time…Happy Parenting!

Trendy Bare Babies Is Making Its Mark!

Baby products is in high demand in our family right now as some of my family members are expecting so now we are really intrigued by all the neat products that are available!

Recently, we have been introduced to Bare Babies who creates trendy unique organic clothing and accessories for little ones. You will be able to find bandana bibs, leggings, hats, organic teethers, diaper covers and swaddles.

The product that we got to see was the Organic Teething Toys and we got two adorable designs! One was the shark design and the other was the cat with glasses design. We absolutely loved both designs – super adorable!

The package came individually wrapped with the product, teether instructions, business card and they provide information on being tested and passed the CPSC product safety regulations in detail. It was a very informative package and appreciated by us as we have never seen this type of teether before.

The Organic Wooden Bunny Teether uses organic fabric and a wooden ring. To assemble the teether, simply “slip knot” bunny ears up through the centre of the wooden ring. The fabric is the part that your baby would be putting in their mouths and the best part is that this piece can be removed to be hand washed in phosphate free detergent and laid flat to dry.

The teether is easy to hold, clean and very appealing to the little ones. It would make a perfect gift for a baby shower or even as a welcoming gift to a new baby. Really loved the detailed instructions that comes with the product as I find it very helpful. The Organic Wooden Bunny Teether is truly unique and you can tell that a lot of thought and love went into it.

For this #MelandNikkiReview, we give Bare Babies 5 hops out of 5 for the quality, uniqueness and trendy factor.

You must check out Bare Babies on Etsy where you can see all the adorable items that they make. I must warn you in advance that it is hard not to find it all adorable and trendy!

Make sure to follow them on Facebook and Instagram to see more of the beautiful clothing and accessories.

Until next time…Happy Parenting!

Bijoux Marie Puce Making Teething Accessories Unique and Cool

One item I find that usually is forgotten when we are first expecting is teething accessories. Usually we don’t always see this as a gift idea as when we think of newborns, we are not thinking of that wonderful teething stage (one of the hardest stages of raising children). However, teething accessories are very important and there are some really adorable options available!

Recently I have been introduced to Bijoux Marie Puce who creates colorful jewellery, teething accessories and offers gift ideas. Bijoux Marie Puce is located in Montreal, Canada and the owner is Marie-France and she is a mompreneur who has two daughters.  Marie-France has a passion for creating unique products and this can be seen in each piece that she makes.

The product that we got to see was the Silicone Teething Toy and I had to see the owl one in person. It arrived in a nicely wrapped package and it a hand written personal thank you note (love this personal touch!). The material used to make the teething toy is: food grade silicone, nylon cord, and plastic clasp. Items made at Bijoux Marie Puce is hand made and you can tell that it is made with lots of love.

Now you can’t have a #MelandNikkiReview without honesty and when I first opened the package to see the teething accessory, I was really surprised. It is much bigger than I was expecting but in a good way. Usually when you go to these big brands, the teething accessories are so tiny and don’t last long due to poor quality. However, the teething accessory by Bijoux Marie Puce is an amazing size and high quality.

The teething accessory is easy to hold, clean and very appealing to the little ones. It would make a perfect gift for a baby shower or even as a welcoming gift to a new baby. I am sure that the little one will thank you when they are older and the parents will be grateful to have this accessory to help their little one cope with the difficult teething stage.

For this #MelandNikkiReview, we give Bijoux Marie Puce 5 hoots out of 5 for the quality, uniqueness and pricing ($25 CAD for the owl teething toy). Of course I can not forget how absolutely adorable it is! Wish I had one of these when my daughter was teething but now I know where to go if a future child is in the works. 🙂

You must check out Bijoux Marie Puce on Etsy where you can see all that she has to offer such as necklaces, earrings, bracelets, hair accessories, rings, magnets, bookmarks, keychains, scrunchies, teething toys, teething necklaces and children necklaces.

Make sure to follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to see more of the beautiful creations.

Until next time…Happy Parenting!
