  1. Back to School Window at Babesta

    OK, yes, I always do these windows at night! But I couldn't wait to reveal our back to school window! Pencils by Lotless, Book-table by ebay, backpacks by Madpax (you can buy them inside!!!!) :) And (this is really exciting for us) if you bring in 2 new or nearly new books to Babesta for Room to Grow charity (for in-need families), we'll give you 10 percent off your back to school purchase! Back to School Rulez indeed!!!

  2. Olympic Window at Babesta

    As this will be the last day of Olympic window at babesta (the first window after our renovation) I thought I'd post a few pictures. I'm trying to capture all of our windows as we have so much fun doing them and are always sad to see them go (but always excited about the next.)

    Note the British brand tees by Rowdy Sprout and the gorgeous "British flags" in poppy colors created by Elyse Kroll Interiors.

  4. Babesta Threads Renovated!

    So for the last couple weeks we have been closed doing a bit of sprucing up  - painting, floors, lights and more! This weekend we opened our doors "softly" as we put on the finishing touches! Thought we'd share a photo with everyone, but we invite you to check it out in person!

  5. We're Lovin' it @Babesta: Century of the Child at the MOMA

    So I just went to the Moma yesterday to see "Century of the Child: Growing Up by Design, 1900-2000." It's a comprehensive exhibit that interplays history with the common perception of children and childhood (it wasn't all fun and games for kids, especially in the early years where they were a key & cheap laborers). It walks through the early 20th century as kids started to become more of a focus - in some ways an unspoiled canvas on which adults could imprint our ideal of what society could be. The exhibit also highlights Montessori, and the idea that children have intrinsic ideas and capablities and can independantly interact with the world around them, and the toys and tools to support that school of thought. The exhibit takes you through both World Wars, Italian modernism, the Space Race (and the resulting toys), Disneyland, PeeWee's Playhouse, electronic games and japanimation.

  6. Toddlers & Tiaras' Eden Wood shows off her CicciaBella boots at Babesta

    We never posted the photos from pop culture phenom Toddlers and Tiaras own Eden Wood and Isabella Barrett's visit to Babesta showing off the new CicciaBella boot-slipper line.  The girls were having a very pink and frilly blast, enjoying every nook and cranny of Babesta Cribz for the paps. We at Babesta wish them the very best with the line an applaud their spunk!
