So I was blessed to receive this amazing new product by Nordic Beauty. I have fair skin, and have been suffering from a lack of sleep since baby B is on an earlier sch. out here on the West Coast. This however, has been my life saver!

Nordic Beauty Anti Aging Cream

It is so thick and rich, you can feel the youth replenishing on your skin the second you start lathering it on. A little of this also goes a LONG way…so you can expect to get a good amount of use out it. It also feels light but provides enough coverage that you don’t really need anything else on. So amazing. It’s fast, organic(if your breastfeeding you don’t need to worry about putting this on your skin and hurting baby) and the scent is fresh and clean.

Totally recommend this for new moms, who wanna feel a little refreshed.

Check out the website HERE, and read all about what goes into the product, and hey even fancy faces like new mama Mila Kunis are using it as well!!

Phil and Teds Modern Convertible High Chair #Baby #ProductReviews #BabyProducts #PhilAndTeds

My name is Kristen Ruhlin, I’m a new mama to a boy named Bastian.

This part of our blog is about our stay in Los Angeles. We are trying out new baby products and new LA foodie spots with our big a@# Bugaboo Stroller.

RANKINGRiding Dirty (1)- the lowest of the low;  Strollin (5)- kindly asked us to hit the road; Rollin (10)- these ballers know how to roll.

The Product  “PhilandTeds-Poppy High Chair

  • Baby B Rank:  Rollin- This chair is so cool and sleek. It’s super easy to keep clean, extremely light to move around here and there…and it converts with your baby as they grow…HOW COOL IS THAT?! The sleek backing of the chair does look a little “hard” at first glance, but don’t be fooled, it’s just as soft as our regular Boon high chair we have at home in NYC. And to compare the 2…Boon is SUPER Heavy, and does take up a lot of room in our small NYC Space.
  • Price: Good deal. The fact that this chair converts over time makes it a fantastic deal, and it’s sturdy while being the lightest chair I’ve ever used. Under $200 and very competitively priced! Get one!!

Baby Here We Come: Los Angeles Edition #babyblog #mommyblog #LA #lababy #nybaby

This month we will be living in the city of Angles in Los Angeles, while working on some projects. This is a great opportunity for us to check out just how these LA spots treat mama, baby and our big ass stroller. Yes we are still keeping our NYC attitude and will be rolling into some of the trendy spots. This also gives us an cool opportunity to try out some other baby products that we don’t typically use in NYC. 

Restaurants:  We will keep our normal rating system bc we want to see if these ballers treat strollers as nicely as our NYC hot spots. We don’t hate and still keep our street style. 

Products:  We are trying out some of the new baby products that we normally don’t get a chance to…from a new high chair, to new binky’s we’re staying open minded and doing comparison. 

Baby Hot Spots:  You know parks, baby gyms, mama gyms that are baby friendly. We will go and let you know. 

Baby B is easily loving this LA lifestyle.

Bastian is rocking out in his A Bit of Lovely booties, and cozy Hanna Anderson jumpsuit.

Falling for LA – Fall takes us to Los Angeles #LA #Hollywood #LalaLand

The song Viva La Vida by Coldplay(I’m so out of it, they could be broken up by now) always reminds me of Autumn in New York because that’s when I use to listen to it on repeat, when I was new to #NYC and hitting the pavement…I had like 3 auditions for the movie Scott Pilgrim(don’t worry you didn’t miss anything I didn’t get the role, thanks Alison Pill). So to this day, Viva takes me back to this very specific time of season. #WELCOMEFALL #FallForward

I haven't seen most West Coast friends since I looked like this.

LA Dishes and the Dirt on Fall 2014

  • The Hood– Like totally for sure covering what’s cool in “The Valley”.
  • The Food– From Gobi (we’re coming for you) to Casa Vega(I know you have room for us) we’ll be hitting them up and seeing how cool they really are towards big A$% strollers.
  • The Scene– you know the hottest parks, dog runs, indoor play gyms, and mama and me classes. We’ll give you the low down of where the most ‘in the know babies’ hit up in LA.
  • The Crib– as in how to and what to take with you on a LONG travel trip with baby. From clothes, bibs to bathtubs I’ll let you know what to take and what to leave.
