Our hearts are bursting from this cuteness overload!

Just a few weeks after welcoming their first child, Bachelorette stars Ashley Hebert andJP Rosenbaum have introduced their absolutely adorable baby boy Fordham Rhys Rosenbaum to the world, and exclusively spoke to E! News about all things baby— including adjusting to parenthood, picking out such a unique name and whether or not more children are in their future.

“It’s so hard naming a human being,” the couple tells us. “Well, we knew we wanted a name that was unique, masculine and would be a good fit throughout every stage of his life. We must have gone through every name on the planet! Many of the names were actually New York-inspired. Ashley thought of ‘Fordham’ and it just clicked with us. We also figured it be a great name if some day he wanted to be President.”

(No pressure, Ford.)

As for how their little world leader is doing, the new parents say, “He is such a good baby! He sleeps well, he eats well, he’s healthy and happy. We know it’s only been two weeks, but we are definitely spoiled.”

JP, who noted that he’s now making the transition back to work since his son’s birth, couldn’t help but gush about his ladylove’s maternal instinct. “Ashley was born to be a mom. She has such a motherly way about her. She is totally in love with this child and it shows in every ounce of her being. She is just glowing.”

And the feeling was mutual. “Seeing JP as a father has made me love him even more,” Ashley tells us. “He helped tremendously during a long recovery and seeing him care so deeply for our family has brought us even closer together.”

The new mom added, “I’ve always imagined what it would be like to be a mom and love someone more than everything. Nothing could prepare me for the amount of love and adoration I feel for our little boy. Being a mother has brought a sense of peace to my life and has shown me what really matters.”

Near the end of Ashley’s pregnancy, the pair decided to move to Miami and settle down there. Hebert and Rosenbaum got themselves a place and went straight to work on the baby’s nursery with the help of Vanessa Antonelli.

“It’s definitely our favorite room in the apartment. Ashley worked with Vanessa Antonelli to create the perfect nursery and she wasn’t disappointed! Ashley didn’t want too much of a baby-themed nursery, but more of a masculine room that Ford could enjoy for years to come. We always find ourselves in the nursery admiring all the little details. It’s a very warm and inviting room,” JP tells us.

Antonelli explains to E! News the idea behind Fordham’s nursery theme. “Ashley and JP have many memories of traveling together, so the nursery features a subtle travel theme…There’s also accessories throughout the room like sailboats, maps and airplanes that complement the theme without being too over the top. The color palette is neutral tans, beiges, grays and creams, which is exactly what Ashley wanted.”

So, are more babies in the lovebird’s future? “I think so! We are going to enjoy this one for a while, but we both feel it would be nice to give Ford a brother or sister.”

ALL ABOUT THE GREY

FALL COLOR TREND REPORT: GREY

Hi Everyone,

I stumbled upon this great article on one of the most popular colors for this season. Enjoy!

 

Each season, there tends to be one popular color that really jumps out at me. Cranberry, for instance, is a hot fall color trend that I definitely plan on rockin’ in the coming months. But all trends aside…there is one color that is a fall mainstay for me and has been for years. Grey is my all time favorite neutral. It’s borderline ridiculous how much of it I have in my wardrobe. It’s a good thing I do own so much grey, because fall after fall, it continues to be a color that works for me. And this fall is no exception.
You really can’t go wrong when adding grey to your fall wardrobe in this girl’s opinion. It plays well with SO many other colors. You can successfully pair it with jewel tones, pastels and even black with ease. I urge you to seek out not only grey clothing, like, my personal favorite, grey denim, but also consider grey shoes and accessories too. A hot pair of grey heels would like smashing with a cranberry frock. And a grey satchel would be a fresh alternative to a basic black one.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide!

Hi Everyone!

Today is May 1st (Happy May!) which means mother’s day is just around the corner. Mothers can be some of the hardest people to shop for, mostly because they are older, wiser, and probably have everything they will ever need. Plus, they probably taught you all you know about shopping and you could therefore never shop for them better than they could shop for themselves. This my friends, is where the sentimental gift comes in handy.

I have some advice for all you ladies out there shopping for your mothers, mothers-in-law, daughters, and daughters-in-law:

69404055ec5c333abc684205765bae85

Now that that is settled, I’ve chosen a few very cute and extremely mom-appropriate items to ease your mother’s day anxiety. All of these have the option to have that special ladies initials on it, so she gets that warm fuzzy feeling every time she goes to use it. As one of my favorite moms Reese Witherspoon once  said “If it isn’t move, monogram it!”

1. Monogrammed velvet slippers so your mom of choice can walk around all day and night feeling like royalty; stubbsandwootton.com.

2. Fun monogramed floppy hat just in time for spring, so mom can have a picnic and still keep her skin looking lovely for years to come; swoozies.com.

3. Monogrammed diamond cut whiskey decanter for those mothers who love to entertain, or just love whiskey; thestationerystudio.com.

4. Moon and Lola Script Gold Monogram Necklace for the stylish mom of any age; moonandlola.com.

5. Wooden monogrammed cutting board from so even when mom is tired of cooking dinner, she knows her family loves her; tuesdaymorning.com.

6. Cashmere Initial and Blocks Blanket can be customized with any initial and is the perfect gift for the home, always soft and full of love; butterscotchblankees.com.

Check out these precious gifts and more on my monogram inspired pinboard on Pinterest.

Happy mothers day!

Butterscotch Blankees Interview with Dual Show

Hi Everyone!

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to “sit down” with  from one of our favorite lifestyle sites Dual Show. Read the full interview below!

011
Family is important, no question. But for Jodie Roth of Butterscotch Blankees (we love that name, by the way), family was her biggest inspiration. Butterscotch Blankees all started when Roth was looking for something snuggly and trendy to accent her son’s nursery. Not finding anything she liked online, Roth did what creative geniuses do best—she designed her own, and now her custom blankets and pillows are certainly getting noticed.

With the start of a new year, Butterscotch Blankees is expanding its line of knitwear. Currently, you can find an amazing collection of blankets, pillows, stroller throws, hats, scarves, sweaters and dresses for your little ones. Already, that’s a pretty impressive list of cuddly accessories; but Roth isn’t stopping there. Later this year, Butterscotch Blankees expects to launch an entire bedding collection to help turn a whole bedroom into a snuggle space.

To get to know Roth a little bit better, we thought we’d share her 15 Life Lessons because, let’s face it, mamma generally knows best, and Roth has some great motherly words of wisdom.

Life Lessons from Jodie Roth of Butterscotch Blankees

1. Try to always live in the moment.

2. Do some form of exercise 30 minutes a day.

3. Listen and learn.

4. Always have a great cashmere wrap to throw over any outfit to go from day to night.

5. Follow your heart, not your mind.

6. Follow your passion to start a business. It will get you further.

7. Treat yourself once a month to a “splurge” item.

8. Great ideas come when you least expect them.

9. Obsessed with monogram ANYTHING.

10. The perfect bag dresses up any outfit.

11. Woman should wear a man’s watch.

12. Finding your inner strength takes patience.

13. When speaking to someone, always look them in the eye.

14. Be your own brand.

15. Honesty and humility are key to life.

Thats all folks! Thanks for reading.
