Top Baby Names for 2012!

12 Apr

Nameberry has just released their list of the top 16 trending names for the year. The top names of the year have many connections to pop culture and celebrities – especially The Hunger Games!

Top Names of 2012:

Rue (From Namberry: Credit The Hunger Games, which has turned the spotlight on a range of exotic botanical names for girls, from the heroine’s name Katniss to gentle Primrose to Posy andClove.  But the hottest choice for babies, according to the Nameberry statistics, is sleek, simple, if somewhat mournfulRue, the name of the agile young girl who meets a tragic end in the series.  In real life, however, we see Rue as having a bright future.)

Emmett, Everett, and Beckett (Twilight’s Emmett Cullen)

Ivy (Beyonce and Jay Z)

Weston, Wesley, and West (All variety of West names are hot this year, but Weston, the choice of The Office’s JennaFischer for her son, is the hottest of them all.)

Adele (Pop star Adele)

Grayson and Gray (Hot new television series Revenge, which focuses on the Grayson family, may be having an influence.)

Aria 

Cyrus (An ancient royal name, it’s got a fashionable S ending, is the surname of pop star Miley, and sports the cute nickname Cy.)

Estelle (Sweden’s royal couple named their baby daughterEstelle earlier this year, which is one reason for its increased attention.)

Cato (Cato might be a villain in The Hunger Games, but the popular series turned attention on a name that fits into a couple of other hot trends.  It’s an ancient Roman name that, like brothers Atticus and Cassius, is being resurrected by modern parents.  It’s got the stylish O ending.  And it kind of sounds like Kate, a name in the spotlight thanks to the new future Queen of England.)

Blythe ( Most closely identified withGwyneth Paltrow’s mom actress Blythe Danner, the one-syllable name has never been in the Top 1000 but could be a top middle name choice of tomorrow.)

Knocked Up Nail Polish

11 Apr

Apparently when you’re pregnant, you need to stay away from certain nail polishes because they contain harmful chemicals and choose products that are ‘three-free‘ – meaning it doesn’t contain formaldehyde, dibutyl phthlate (DBP), or toluene.  Lots of commercial brands are three-free now, but it’s not always obvious if a product is “safe” when you go to hunt for ingredient lists. SO, what is a pregnant fashionista to do? Get some Knockedup Nail Polish! According to their website:

Our pregnancy-safe nail polish formula does not contain toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate or camphor.

We show a little extra lovin’ to the preggos,but Knocked Up Nails
is also safe for allergy sufferers, cancer patients & children.

Our hip, modern hues are long-lasting and chip resistant; and all of our polishes are cruelty free and made in the USA.

Their polishes are not only safe BUT they have the cutest names!

Divorce Rings

There are engagement rings, wedding rings, eternity rings, promise rings, even commitment rings, and now there are divorce rings!

A trendy British jewelry designer, Gisele Ganne, has created some interesting rings she calls “divorce rings.” Sold on bottica.com – these things don’t come cheap! Each ring will set you back $1,348.

According to the website,

“Mourning is not just about dead people, it is also about dead relationships and decaying marriages…My divorce jewelry refers to old and contemporary wedding customs to illustrate this sort of mourning…All the decoration inside symbolize the union and give luck to the marriage. I use union and marriage symbols and subvert them to show the inevitability of the breakup, but also show that from these ashes may raise a new life.”

 

Really? Picnic Pants?

30 Mar

Sometimes we come up with crazy ideas and never do anything about them – and a lot of the times that’s a good thing! Well an Italian brand called Acquacalda has decided to go ahead and MAKE THEM! ICK!

They say the pic-nic pant, promises to “take advantage of the usual cross-legged position to become a comfortable surface usual for consumption of a meal outdoors.” In other words, pants that serve as a table top or, well, pants on which you can have an actual picnic! Look at the photos below:

If the photos are any indication, these things look kinda crazy and hard to walk in! Not sure who is doing so much picnicing they need a special pair of pants – but to each their own!
