Just like mom, Ivanka Trump‘s 2-year-old daughter Arabella loves being active.

Even at her young age, Trump’s elder child (son Joseph was born last October) enjoys partaking in exercise – yoga is apparently her strong suit.

“She’ll grab a mat, lay it down next to mine, and show me her poses,” Trump, 32, tells SHAPE in their May issue. “You should see her downward dog; it’s so sweet.”

Next up for the little one? Golfing this summer.

“It will probably end up with her just picking up the golf ball and throwing it down the fairway, but that’s cool,” Trump says. “In fact, that’s perfect!”

Jaxon Mini’s Chic Furniture Line Will Change Your Mind About Kids Decor

04/15/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

When it came time to transition her daughter’s nursery into a toddler room, Jaxon Home designer Victoria Richter didn’t have to look far for inspiration.

Channeling her popular line of home furnishings, Richter set out to adapt her creations into kid-friendly versions. And before long, Jaxon Mini was born.

“As a mom, I want to make my kids happy and comfortable — and as a designer, I want them to have furniture that is sophisticated as well as playful,” Richter says.

The result? A really cute mix of pint-size couches, arm chairs and tufted beds that will transform any tot’s room into a chic space.

Too adult for you? We get it — the Brooklyn hipster meets breezy L.A. look may not be for every kid. But there are plenty of child-friendly touches throughout the line including the round Remi table ($995), which features a fun chalkboard top.

And if you’re worried about how well the furniture will hold up to everyday play, you can rest assured. Just like the adult collection, Jaxon Mini is made from the same high quality materials, including kiln-dried hardwoods and easy-to-clean fabrics.

All we know is we’re happy to see more modern options for kids room decor. We love bean bags and bunk beds just as much as the next parent, but this is a breath of fresh air.

Savannah Guthrie Gets Style Help from Matt Lauer and Jenna Bush Hager

04/14/2014 at 04:00 PM ET

When it came to her attire for the “Make a Difference Day” awards luncheon in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, Savannah Guthrie was less than prepared.

The Today coanchor had a slight case of “pregnancy brain” and forgot her change of clothes when she and castmates Matt Lauer and Jenna Bush Hager flew into town to attend the fancy affair honoring community volunteers. “I was in my maternity jeans!” the mom-to-be confided to PEOPLE.

So the trio, whose own make-a-difference project will be to build a playground for under-privileged children in Newark, N.J., made a quick stop at Neiman Marcus. How quick? “Sixteen minutes, 13 seconds,” said Lauer, who timed it on his iPhone.

Whether she’s walking the red carpet or celebrating her baby shower, Ciara has managed to look flawless since announcing her pregnancy.

But while the mom-to-be — who’s now in her third trimester — doesn’t mind dressing up her bump, she admits pregnancy has put a limit on her glamorous get-ups.

“I like to be free and comfortable and relaxed. I don’t want to feel stressed. It’s already so much with your belly being so big,” she told PEOPLE at the Safe Kids Day event on April 5 in West Hollywood, Calif.

“When I have to get cute, I will get cute and put on some heels for an hour or two — and then throw those things off as soon as I get in the car!”

The singer may not be taking style tips from Kim Kardashian‘s pregnancy playbook, but the good friends have found plenty of other ways to bond over their babies. They were even spotted shopping together at Bel Bambini.
