Shea Moisture Organic Baby Products Review

I think it is super important to know you have options for products for your baby.  I am pumped to tell you about the Shea Moisture Organic Baby care products.   I am sure most of you are familiar with Shea Moisture hair products that are pretty awesome (talking about it HERE).  I could only guess that the children's products would have to be on the same HIGH level.

Video: Rachel Zoe on Motherhood at Lucky Fabb

Hearing Rachel Zoe, one of the top stylist in the game made going to Lucky Fabb in New York all worth it!  She is such an inspiration.  I give her even more props since she became a mother.  I love that she is so into motherhood and loves to talk about her cutie patootie son Skylar!

Here is a video of Rachel Zoe talking about motherhood and managing it all.

I am sure all you moms can relate to what she is talking about.  It was hard for me to leave Peyton for my trips to New York.  I wish I had the money to bring Peyton everywhere with me!  For now we will just hang in Atlanta!  Were you a workaholic before having a child?  Have your views changed after having a baby?

This awesome video was taken using my Verizon Galaxy S III!
