From Celebrity Baby Scoop: 5 Celebrity Moms with all Daughters

Girl power!

Last time, our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop brought us 5 celebrity moms with a brood of boys. Now they are highlighting famous families with all girls in the mix.

Continue reading about 5 celebrity moms who have plenty of female energy in the house.

Jessica Alba:

Sin City star Jessica Alba and husband Cash Warren are parents to two daughters: Honor, 5, and Haven, 2.

“Every day with my girls is a dream and just hanging out with them is the best thing ever,” Jessica gushed to Celebrity Baby Scoop.

The eco-friendly mama added: “We do a lot of DIY crafts like using cardboard boxes to make airplanes and dollhouses—our creative playtime together similarly shows the girls about repurposing old items.”

Denise Richards:

Twisted star Denise Richards and ex-husband Charlie Sheen are parents to two girls: Sam, 10, and Lola, 8.

The actress adopted a third daughter, Eloise, as a single parent in June 2011.

“I’m definitely a hands-on mom,” Denise has said. “For me it’s about priorities, and my girls always come first. I look at it as having a harmonious house more than balancing – it’s never quite balanced!”

Demi Moore:

Ghost actress Demi Moore and ex-husband Bruce Willis are parents to three daughters: Rumer, 25, Scout, 22, and Tallulah, 20.

The Charlie’s Angels star actress admits that she constantly asks herself if she’s a good mother.

“There is no job in our life that you want less to make a mistake with,” she told E! News of motherhood. “And it is inevitable. The pain of that is deeper and more enormous than anything you could grasp because you spend most of your life as a mother wanting to save them from any pain at all. So to have to look at yourself as being the cause of their pain is excruciating.”

Alyson Hannigan:

How I Met Your Mother star Alyson Hannigan and husband, actor Alexis Denisof, are parents to two daughters: Satyana, 5, and Keeva, nearly 2.

The actress recently gushed to Celebrity Baby Scoop about the joys of motherhood.

“Being a mom is simply the best thing I have ever done,” she shared. “My kids make me laugh and smile every day.”

“Satyana is very into dressing herself and everything has to be bright pink or purple,” Alyson added of her girly-girl. “If it glows or is shiny that is even better. If you need sunglasses to look at her outfit, you know that’s a good outfit. Her choices are not always the fashion choices I would make, but they always make me smile!”

As for Keeva, it sounds like she’s Sati’s biggest fan.

“Keeva really wants to be like her big sister and follows Sati around — she’s always watching her,” Alyson shared. “At this point, they really get along and love being together which is great.”

Melanie Brown:

Girl power, indeed!

Spice Girls star Mel B, a.k.a. Scary Spice, is mom to four daughters: Phoenix, 15, Angel, 6, Madison, 2, and stepdaughter Giselle, 8.

“I do want a boy,” she revealed shortly after welcoming Madison. “But I’m enjoying my girls and my baby. She’s about to start crawling in Sydney and I’m like, ‘Don’t let her move until I get back!’ It would be nice to have a son, but it wouldn’t be straightaway.”

“The gap between Madison and Angel works brilliantly,” she continued. “I’ve just had them all on Skype and Phoenix is holding Madison and Angel’s playing with Phoenix’s hair. It’s beautiful.”

4 Simple Ways to Live a Little Greener

Finding easy ways to make your life a bit more eco-friendly can seem like a daunting task. In celebration of Earth Day, we’ve put together our top tips to get you started on the track to making your everyday life a little more environmentally friendly. For more products to help you along the way, check out our Earth Day events.

1. Start with Books. Learn about the Mother Earth together. Books about the environment like Hoot & Flush by Carl Hiassen and Maisy Grows a Garden, are a great way to teach toddlers and preschoolers in a fun, interactive way.

2. Go Local. The local food movement means farmer’s markets are popping up everywhere. It’s not only a fun outing with your family, but the selections of fruits, veggies and other foods are amazing. And you can feel good about supporting your local farmers. Make sure to bring a big reusable tote to carry everything. Bring It has a great line of functional and fashionable totes.

3. Recycle as a Family. Recycling should be a family activity. Make recycling easy by having clearly marked containers at various spots around your home with lists of common products that can be recycled rather than trashed.

 4. Volunteer. Many communities sponsor green activities, like pitching in to help clean up a local park or playground. Maybe the area around your child’s school could use sprucing up.

Brand Spotlight: Introducing with love from africa by kate quinn

image

Today, zulily has the unique opportunity to bring you the first look at a line of clothing that is very special to us both for its unique look and its purpose.  The with love from africa by kate quinn line of organic clothing features beautiful prints inspired by the scenes of Nairobi and Kenya. But it’s not just the beautiful designs that get us so excited. In partnership with Bébé Ravi, the clothing is lovingly handcrafted by women in Nairobi and Kenya,areas with unemployment rates as high as 40%. We had a chance to speak with the women behind kate quinn organics, Kate Quinn herself, about the driving factors behind creating this line and her inspiration.  

What led you to partner with Bébé Ravi, and what inspired you to develop your “with love from africa” line?

I met Siamanda Chenge, a former fashion model from Kenya, a few years ago at a show in NYC.  She currently runs a Kenyan women’s knitting project that creates the most beautiful sweaters, Bebe Ravi, which in turn helps support an orphanage that provides homes to boys and girls, many of them orphaned by HIV.  I was immediately inspired by her work, which is both meaningful and visually stunning.  I had been waiting for an opportunity for us to create some good together, and we finally developed this line, which is a woven custom print cut and sew collection, classic lines with fun details. zulily fell in love with it, and the rest is history.

Where did you get your inspiration for the colors and patterns of the “with love from africa” line?

The prints are inspired by colors and textures etched in my memory from my last trip to Africa, sunsets, sky, grass fields after the monsoon.  The silhouettes are inspired by heirloom vintage party dresses and jumpers, both whimsical and easy to wear.

Can you explain the charitable contribution aspect?

The first production of this collection will create 30-35 new jobs for women in these villages. With each purchase, moms can feel good about helping moms in Kenya to cloth, feed and care for their children. In addition, a percentage of the revenue from the clothing is put back into the community through the support of the Patrick Chege Memorial Orphanage.

Why did you choose to partner with zulily on this line?

I knew zulily would be the perfect fit due to their enormous heart and ability to get things done. We presented the idea to zulily and they fell in love with it. The rest is history. We know the zulily moms will love it just as much as we do.

Devon’s Discoveries: Diaper Bag Organization

The day finally arrived— Baby #2 was born about a week and a half ago and we couldn’t be more excited!  Baby G is a delight: happy, sleepy, and cuddly… and Bean is slowly but surely adjusting to big sisterhood.  I guess we’re all adjusting to becoming a family of four and we’ve already instituted some changes to make things run a little more smoothly.  One of my first orders of business was to get my diaper bag in order.  Juggling diapers, wipes, spare clothes and all of the other stuff you have to cart around with a newborn and a 21-month old is no laughing matter.  So I turned to zulily for some help in getting my diaper bag in tip-top shape.  I ordered two different bags, one for each girl’s diapers and wipes.

I also ordered this cool wet bag, which I’m using to store a change of clothes for each girl.  I love this bag because you can store wet clothes in here, which will come in handy when we have the inevitable accident.

My diaper bag may be a complete disaster in a few weeks, but right now it looks like a shining example of organization.  And hopefully it’ll keep me and my sleep-deprived brain from putting newborn-sized diapers on Bean!

Baroque:

 

The party print of the season has to be baroque. Originating from Europe, its ornate design is synonymous with opulence, making it an ideal choice for special occasions. Dress the part of a fashion goddess when incorporating this regal trend into your look. From the desk to dinner, it is a style do!

The lust-worthy print gives a modern moto jacket a regal edge and looks great on a classic shift, but if you’re looking for a leisurely-luxe version of the trend, pair a blinged out baroque-inspired bijoux with a simple tee. Get the look starting April 3.

Nautical:

 

Nautical notes made a stylish splash on the runways. Expect contemporary styles that never fail, like Brenton striped crewnecks, navy skimmers, crisp white linen blouses and sailor-inspired trousers.

Floral:

 

Get ready for a floral flush. This season, bountiful blooms live on in tropical tones, Hawaiian-inspired prints and metallic tinges. Tory Burch perfected the trend with a high-shine drop-waist dress covered in blossoms, while Elie Saab serenaded us in sweet style notes with her petal trimmed shift.

Ruffles and Lace:

 

This trend is no longer limited to little divas - it’s time for Mom to have fun with ruffles and lace, and with these flirty styles, we’re sure you will! Feminine ruffles and diaphanous lace accents have taken over women’s wardrobe. By far one of the most popular trends of the season, when ruffles and lace are worn right, they make a mighty fine duo.
