The MTV Video Music Awards aired last night. Lady Gaga opened the show with her new hit song Applause. Her performance was amazing. She's a hard working woman. Gaga started out with the typical over the top outfit. She entered the stage wearing what's been referred to as a nun's habit, a milk carton and a cardboard box. During her performance there were several wardrobe and hair changes. By the time she finished, she was stripped down to a shell bra and thong revealing the singers well conditioned physique.
One celebratory Sunday in July, I was surprised with tickets to see Rock of Ages on Broadway. Funny enough, my company sells 80's rock band t-shirts for kids and this gift turned out to be very inspirational for me. The show was great! All the rock songs from the 80's that we grew up listening to were filling the Helen Hayes Theatre. One couldn't help but chair dance throughout the the entire show. Or, like the mildly annoying woman behind me, sing the wrong words to the coolest 80's tunes. Motley Crue, Skid Row, Bon Jovi, Warrant and so many more photos of cool 80's rock bands donned the walls of the theatre. We marveled at how young they all looked, the big hair, the make up, where the time had gone and the clothes they, and we, wore back in the day, including spandex pants, lots of leather, fringe and fingerless gloves.

The graphic tee, a mandatory accessory for hipster irony, is perhaps the cheapest form of self-expression. And express it does, with messages like "Cuter than baby Jesus" and "What happens at grandma's stays at grandma's." But these hipsters aren't unemployed twenty-something philosophy majors who favor beards and unicycles. These hipsters wear rompers.
Many people have been writing lately about what size one piece they should buy. It's baby fever right now between new babies being born, babies celebrating their first birthday and Spring shopping sprees! Infant bodysuits, rompers, creepers, and one pieces are typically sized by weight and height. The difficulty lies in the differences from brand to brand. Just like women's jeans, where a size 4 from The Gap might not fit the same as a size 4 from Banana Republic, new born one piece manufacturers' sizes also differ.
"One Pieces", infant t-shirts that wrap around the bottom of a child and snap closed between the child's legs, are the most popular type of clothing item for babies through 24 months of age. New born one piece bodysuits are functional, convenient pieces of clothing. They stay in place and keep the child covered during periods of activity.
Receiving blankets and punk children's clothes are often given to new moms and dads at baby showers. They range from simple, small, lightweight, soft blankets to elaborate double sided, brightly colored, punk & rock textured blankets with all types of finishes.
Swaddling seems to be making a come back in recent years. The theory is, since newborn babies are not accustomed to free, open space, they feel more secure when wrapped in a warm blanket that restricts their movement and in turn simulates the environment of the womb.
Your infant's skin is sensitive. It's best to use a detergent and softener that are mild, hypoallergenic, fragrance and dye free to prevent rashes and skin irritations. Just keep in mind that "natural" and "organic" doesn't always mean better.
The easiest way to dry your child's clothes is in a clothes dryer. A dryer is quick and keeps baby's clothing from getting stiff which can happen when air-drying garments. However, a dryer will shrink or temporarily shrink your baby's clothes because it uses high heat to dry clothing.
There is a big push towards natural and organic food products and clothing for babies and toddlers. Benefits of the migration to natural and organic have varying degrees of support. One thing is for sure; buying natural or organic will cost more money.
An orthodontic baby pacifier can be a mom's best friend when it comes to soothing a fussy child. Chances are you'll have 20 pacifiers and they'll be dropped on the floor in your house, in the grocery store and any other place you visit during your daily routine.
Your infant will not be agreeable to just any pacifier. You'll receive many different kinds of pacifiers at your baby shower. The nurse in the maternity ward at the hospital will give you another kind of pacifier. When you visit a store like Babies R Us you'll notice the pacifier aisle is as large as the bread section in the grocery store.
You've been invited to a baby shower and you want to buy children's clothing. What size should you buy? Baby showers are very exciting. Everyone's gift will be "on display" at the shower as the mother-to-be opens her presents for all to see.
You were invited to a baby shower. Congratulations! You're going to have so much fun celebrating the anticipated arrival of this new little bundle of joy. On the invitation it says that your girlfriend is registered at Babies R Us. You pull the baby registry up online and see that there are a few hundred items on the baby registry. What are you going to buy as a baby shower gift, maybe funny baby clothes?
I love music so of course, I watched the Grammy's last night. My favorite was The Beatles' Paul McCartney. My kids are named after Beatles. I enjoyed seeing McCartney on stage with Bruce Springsteen because he's Bruce but also he's from New Jersey as is Kiditude. Another great performance came from Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters in his Slayer shirt. That shirt brought back so many memories of high school. I still have my Slayer and Metallica t-shirts. They are all cut up in true 80's style. I happened to be on Facebook at the time the Grammy Awards were on and was chatting with some friends about all the cool rock concert t-shirts we have lying around that have too many memories to get rid of.
