    Estella NYC

    It's November I can officially start talking Holidays!!! I've started gift shopping and I am head over heels in love with a few companies and I wanted to share with you all!! Today I want to talk about Estella!!! I was so excited to work with this company not only because of the adorable Quality clothes but because of who they are and what they stand for!! You know I'm a sucker for the good ones!! I'm smitten with Estella's NYC themed items. We received the Pretzel and I cant even... Well just take a peek...



    It is super soft and wash after wash looks like the day I opened it! Most of you that have been following from the get go know I love Organic cotton...Estella uses GOTS certified organic cotton,  This means that it is safe for babies, the earth and the people who work on the fabric. 

    Estella's newest organic baby gifts include printed one-piece bodysuits with graphic prints, unique lovey security blankets, organic baby gifts, and more.  In celebration of the Olympics, Estella features it's Sports rattles including tennis, basketball, barbell, sneaker blanket and Kat sporty doll.

    Estella's graphic organic cotton pretzel baby one-piece is a must-have for the foodie baby! It's made with a soft cotton and includes snaps between the legs that make diaper changes a breeze. Pair it with the organic pretzel baby rattle for a complete gift set!

    • GOTS certified organic 100% cotton with safe eco-friendly dyes.
    • Machine wash, tumble dry low.
    • Ethically made in India.
    • Usually ships within 24 hours.


    I LOVE an amazing success story, especially when there is such heart behind it! Here is an intro to the masterminds behind the brand,

    "Hello, my name is Jean Polsky and I own Estella with my husband, Chike Chukwulozie. I was born here in New York City and have been interested in fashion since I was old enough to figure out how to dress myself.  My first job was an internship at the beautiful Bergdorf Goodman and professionally speaking, I haven’t strayed far.

    In 2002, Chike and I opened Estella, an eclectic, high-end designer baby and children’s clothes boutique in New York’s Village.  The concept behind Estella was to bring the amazing, artisan-inspired kids’ clothing we saw scattered across Europe here to New York.  In 2002, luxury children’s fashion in NYC was synonymous with big box retail, big price tags, and somber, conservative frocks.  We saw things differently.  “Kids have personality,” we reasoned, “their clothes should too.”  Our vision was built on high quality kids’ and baby clothes that were designed by mothers, not corporations.  These creations were full of gorgeous colors, textures and spirit.  Kids loved wearing these clothes and parents loved owning them.

    Our retail business blossomed over the course of 11 years.  We were humbled by the response from the press, celebrities and all our customers: Estella appeared in the New York Times, Vogue, Elle, The Today Show, People Magazine, US Weekly, InStyle and numerous other press outlets.
    "When he's looking for inspiration, Mizrahi heads to Estella ... 'It sounds totally random, I know, but I adore the incredible color sense. They never get too twee the way they do in other kids' stores--it's very eclectic and sophisticated in an exclusively New York way.”  - Designer Isaac Mizrahi on cnn.com.

    Over the years, we created various collections of toddler and baby clothes because our customers were asking for them and they did not exist in the market.  Our customers wanted soft, elegant newborn baby clothing so we designed a capsule collection of Estella bamboo baby clothes, which has since been featured on the Martha Stewart Show and in other national press outlets.
    Our gift shoppers always wanted that extra something special to include with their baby gifts that would give it the “wow factor.”  Thus, Estella’s organic baby toys, baby blankets, and nursery decor pillows were born.  Our baby gift line has gone on to win prestigious national awards.  Barney’s New York and other luxury baby boutiques picked up the line and demand grew from there.  To cater to this demand and grow our collection, we closed the retail location in 2013 and now sell through specialty baby boutiques, gift stores and on our e-boutique."

    These are the type of business that earn my support! I love everything they stand for! The holidays are around the corner... Go shop Estella and get gifts that will really wow the receiver! I love everything they have to offer! Go SHOP HERE, don't forget to use the code SARAH15 to get an extra 15% off! You can also find them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!

    Norma Christine Photography


    Pictures are so important to me...as you can tell from the many I take daily! I was always a big picture person. I remember when I was little and my brother and I would look through the many albums my mom had. We loved when she would tell us stories about the photo's from her childhood! We STILL do this on Sunday dinners. When I became a mom I found myself capturing even more...Time goes by so quickly and I don't want to miss a thing. Finding a family photographer is so important, there will be many life events you will want to capture and enjoy. I knew one of them would be my daughters upcoming Carnival Birthday! I was so excited to work with the one and only, Norma Christine Photography! She has an eye for things I only wish I had! She arrived before the party started and from the moment we met I knew she was "the one". The crazy thing about this two hour party... I rarely remember seeing her. She was tucked away, up close and personal and yet I never saw her. A true professional.  I enjoyed the craziness that most children parties ensue and by the end I was beat. We cleaned up, went to bed and by morning when the dust settled I realized that although I was "in" the moment, I didn't remember much!

    A few days later... Norma Christine Photography delivers the most amazing digital album I have ever seen! The pictures are straight up beautiful. Flawless photography capturing all the beauty and fun of the day. Yes, I cried. It was like looking through a wedding album for me. My children are my world, I so enjoy this life with them...to see them happy, to see the smiles. It was all worth it! I will treasure these photographs forever!




    So who is Norma Christine Photography you ask? I'll let her introduce herself...

    "My name is Amanda, of Norma Christine Photography. I am happy wife and mother to three amazing kids. I started getting into photography in college, and then took a hiatus to focus on my family and be a nanny. Time has now brought me back to one of my greatest passions, and I am loving it! I love music, coffee, Autumn, Ice hockey, the Golden age of Hollywood, and the New England Patriots. I think it's important to smile and make others smile too. Now, I am continuing my passion of photography, to capture some of lifes most precious moments, to be frozen in time. Always remember, be kind, smile big, and love one another!"


    Yes she really is the sweetest soul! She is able to get the shot EVERY time, with such skill and precision it truly blows me away!  My girls loved her! She is so professional and does amazing things! If you are in the New England Area I highly suggest you seek out Norma Christine Photography, you wont be disappointed! Life is a crazy adventure, capture those moments, plaster them on your walls. Find that amazing photographer and bring them into your life... let them use their eye to bring your beautiful life to print!

    Don't forget to check out Norma Christine Photography on Facebook HERE And Instagram at @normachristinephotography

    Holidays are coming up peeps...get you holiday photo on! I know we will be! Don't forget after you get those amazing photo's done to head over to Basic Invite and make your holiday cards!
