So last night I went to the Passing it On event, the annual show by Rosie’s Theater Kids. I am so blown away by these folks–making such a huge difference in the lives of kids in the city. Even more blown away by the kids themselves–amazing. One group sang “You Gotta Have Heart” with Rosie herself, and other amazing numbers were choreographed and directed by people like BD Wong (“M. Butterfly/Law & Order SVU”) and John Tartaglia (Avenue Q).
It was a wonderful event by an organization that addresses a big problem: anyone with a kid in the public school system knows, when money’s tight, the Arts are always the first in line to be cut. Enter this organization which provides free regular classes in performing to some of the most in-need public schools and then offer after school and summer programs to kids who audition and get chosen. Participation is based on passion and need over talent. Not only giving access to a talented panel of teachers and mentors, the organization helps them academically with tutoring programs and helps to get them into performing arts high schools as well.
Thanks for the show. Inspiring! Big Shoutout from your pals at Babesta! Pass it on…

We’re pretty excited at Babesta as we are starting to settle into our new office! There are desks, new flor tiles, orange and grey paper storage/filing bins and even an architectural archway that has been painted underneath with totally groovy dry-erase paint. It’s still a bit of a work in progress but we’re nearly there! A tiny peek: More pictures coming soon!

We’re throwing a bash with our fave stroller brand, Bugaboo, to celebrate living life on the fly (and living a fly life)! We’re debuting the latest installment of Bubaboo’s video series, this time detailing the urban adventure of stylist and blogger Latonya Staubs, her family and her Bugaboo Bee. Latonya will share some of her fave go-tos in the city, DJ Neil will spin some rad tunes, we’ll all eat some yummy cupcakes and enjoy. Cheers to city moms!!
We are big fans of the Bee, as it happens, as Babesta is curated for a city child, so it only make sense that a light weight, agile, easy to fold and high quality (& super stylish) stroller would be the guest of honor.
We’ll even be doing some stroller cleaning to those who pre-sign up for it (make an appointment ahead of time by calling 646 290 5508).
The deets: Come to Babesta Cribz, 56 Warren Street, March 6, from 1:00-3:00pm.
Also (as if this wasn’t enough) a Bugaboo Bee & accessory will be raffled off!!!!

We are super psyched to get the new day-glo footmuffs from our friends at 7AM Enfant. Those ready to embrace this trend head-on, go for the solid pops of fluorescent green or pink-both head-turning & statement-making, but for a more subtle effect the beige with the neon accents is the way to go. On the black Cameleon 3 special edition – these footmuffs are perfection! Shop 7AM Enfant now.
