Kyra Sedgwick’s Family Tattoo

Kyra Sedgwick’s new tattoo had a lot of people talking on the red carpet of last night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards. The actress, nominated for her role in The Closer, wore a red Emilio Pucci column dress with cutouts that left her new tat in full view. Kyra was proud to be showing off her new bold accessory because of its sentimental value.

“It’s a family tattoo,” the 46-year-old told E! “It’s all our initials K, K, S and T.” The actress was, of course, referring to husband of 23-years, Kevin Bacon, their son Travis, 22 and daughter Sosie, 19.

Not many women can pull off this look at her age, but Kyra was rocking that gown and her new ink!
Do you have or would you ever get any family inspired tattoos?

Spring Savings

I went shopping yesterday to find my son some Valentine’s Day PJs for school, and noticed all the new spring collections in store. While it was lovely to see all the cute new spring dresses and shoes, I couldn’t help but wonder… This is Canada! Don’t these companies know that spring barely exists here and winter pretty much lasts through April? Lol But of course, fashion always comes ahead of the curve! While at this time I am not shopping for barely there dresses and open toe shoes that I won’t be able to wear for months (though they are nice to look at).. It is a fabulous time to stock up on all the winter essentials like coats and boots that are now at exceptional discounted prices! Especially for fashion mamas on a budget, now is the time to buy those beautiful boots that you have been coveting all season! You can still wear them for a while, or hold onto them for next year. Shop in store or online from the comfort and convenience of your own home and enjoy all the spring savings at stores like Macys,  who now ships to Canada (woohoo!) and has an amazing selection of brand name discounted clothes, shoes and boots for stylish women and mamas like yourself as well as items for the entire family all in one place! (don’t you just love that?) Personally, this fashion mama can’t pass up a good deal! Here are some of my fave discounted fashion items that can easily transition into spring.. Happy Spring Savings Fashion Moms!

This fabulous DKNY Cashmere Blend Belted Trench Coat is warm enough for winter, but the trench coat style is a classic staple for spring -  Originally $461.08, Now only $172.89

The suede Enzo Angiolini Flory Wedge Booties are the perfect combination of comfort and chic. They would look great with your cool weather wardrobe, but can also easily transition into spring - Originally $160.23, Now only $40.06

2. Olive, My Love by Vivian Walsh

3. Chocolate Me by Taye Diggs

4. Three Little Pigs by Patricia Seibert

There is no better day to remind our children about the importance of reading than Family Literacy Day. Take this opportunity to read a new or favorite book with your children, hit up the local library, teach someone else to read, or donate some old books to others who could benefit from the joy of reading.

Alessandra Ambrosio Walks the Runway at 5 Months Pregnant

Alessandra Ambrosio may have kept her pregnancy under wraps when she walked the runway at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show, but the beautiful model mom proudly flaunted her growing figure at the Colcci fashion show during Sao Paulo Fashion Week in Brazil on Monday.

At five-months pregnant, Alessandra wore two looks from Colcci's fall 2012 collection: a loose knit sweater to accommodate her growing belly paired with tan leather-trimmed hot pants that showed off the model’s super long legs, and a grey mod style mini shift dress. The second time mommy-to-be was all smiles as she strutted her stuff down the runway in red hot stilettos and rubbed her beautiful belly for all to see.

Ambrosio's catwalk cameo came thanks to her role as the face of Colcci, alongside Ashton Kutcher who cheered her on from the side lines.

Alessandra sure does give new meaning to the term 'model mom'! She looks stunning!

We are also loving that 80’s supermodel do’! The apple sure doesn’t fall too far from the tree!

DJ EGY on the Turntables!

Looks like Blue Ivy isn’t the only one being influenced by musical parents. Can you guess who this little cutie is playing DJ on his daddy’s turntables? Hint: His dad is a music producer and his mom is a beautiful songstress.

That’s right! Its Egypt, son of Swizz Beats and Alicia Keys.  Proud dad Swizz tweeted the pic this past weekend saying “”DJ EGY :) getting it in from his high chair Lmao“. So cute! Reminds me so much of my son Jagger, who is constantly in his dad’s studio, dancing and trying to make music.

Look Who's Walking Now!

Yesterday, the ever so beautiful actress Ali Larter, decided to spend some quality time at the park with her adorable son Theodore in L.A. Teddy, who celebrated his first birthday on December 20th, looked so happy playing in the park with mama and showing off his big boy walking skills!

My own son started walking last month, so I know how proud Ali must feel watching her little one being so independent. They grow up so fast!!

New Years with Dem Babies!

How adorable!! We just love this family. Mariah, Nick and 8 month old twins Moroccan and Monroe rang in the new year in Aspen, Colorado. While leaving Mariah's mom's jewelry store, the color-coordinated family posed for some pics with the paparazzi and couldn't look more happy.

We wish this amazing little family all the best in 2012 and can't wait to see the cute little ones make more fashionable debuts within the year, with their super hot mama of course!
