Guess who takes Halloween very seriously?

A few years ago my husband and I struck gold at a garage sale selling Halloween props for as little and $1.00 each item. When in New Zealand I was always the annoying one on the street who decorated her house and encouraged local kids into trick or treating - yes I was disliked by many a neighbour on October 31st! Moving to America I could not wait for a true Halloween (I know I am a big kid and I go for all the holiday hype). This year is our third American Halloween and I have been a bit slack getting the decorations out, the cold weather has not been inspiring. However, by Saturday my house and yard will be transformed.

Here is a sneak peak...

PS: Don't forget to enter our competition - closes at the witching hour on October 31st.

Fabulous Fall

As most of our BabyBaby customers prepare for summer here at the Pittsburgh office we are preparing for snow. However first we get to enjoy one of my favorite times of year Fall or as us kiwi's call it Autumn.
As I look out my office window I see nothing but brilliant colour of all possible shades of red, brown, gold and green. Each day the leaves on the trees become more and more brilliant in colour. As the neighbourhood prepares for Halloween fairy lights appear on the eves of the houses and large orange pumpkins pop up in gardens. It is a stunning sight.

Just as stunning is our 2B Skin Care Competition with three chances to win.

Charity Auction for Shanade

When we heard about a fundraiser to help little Shanade Tallentire make her dreams come true we couldn't wait to be part of it. This story has touched our hearts and our thoughts are with Shanade and her family.

There is nothing more heart breaking than hearing that a child is sick. Instead of feeling just empathy a community have come together to help make Shanade's dreams come true.

Shanade Tallentire is 7 years old. She has a brain tumor called a diffuse intrinsic glioma. Its growing in the part of the brain that controls the central nervous system. Doctors have given her 6 months to live, and she will more than likely be confined to her bed within the next month.

Shanade's dream was very simple and one many of us take for granted - a trip to Auckland Zoo to see Cheetah Cubs.

Shanade's wish has been granted and money is now being raised to help with costs associated with the trip and to help her family.

An auction has been started on Sella Lots of cool things have been donated for auction from NZ businesses greatly due to the hard work put in by Jess at Exquisite Baby

Many companies have also made donations so friends could decorate Shanade's bedroom. It is heartwarming to see how many people are prepared to make a difference to this family to ensure their days together are memorable.

A facebook Page has been set up in support of Shanade.
