Selma Blair Shares Sweet Photo of Son Arthur

07/11/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

Selma Blair isn’t afraid to get “down and dirty” with son Arthur. And that includes indulging in a little mommy-and-me tattoo session.

On June 21, the actress shared an adorable photo on Twitter of the pair showing off their matching ink (temporary that is!) featuring NUNUNU Baby‘s cute logo.

“Woke at 6, dressed in Nununu baby Arthur even gave us Nununu tattoos,” she captioned the pic.

Along with their coordinating body art, we couldn’t help but notice the almost 3-year-old‘s cool skull top ($39) and Sprinkle pajama bottoms ($39), which are also from the contemporary kids brand.

These Eco-Friendly Lunch Boxes Make Family Meal Planning Easy

07/10/2014 at 04:00 PM ET

As moms, we often have too much on our plates. So anything that can help us be more organized, while taking less the time, is a win win for the whole family.

That’s why we were excited to try PlanetBox, an eco-friendly lunch box that claims to make packing on-the-go meals a cinch.

Perfect for camp, the beach or any outdoor adventure, the stainless steel container (which was thoughtfully designed by real parents) comes in three different sizes. And not only does it encourage portion control, but it’s great for those people (young or old!) who can’t stand the thought of their food touching.

We Tried It: Babyzen Yoyo — The Stroller You Can Actually Take on an Airplane

We Tried It: Babyzen Yoyo stroller

Who tried it: Rennie Dyball, Senior Editor

Why she did it: A stroller you can take on an airplane as a carry-on? This I’ve got to see.

Plus, celeb mom-of-five Natalie Hanson (a fan of the Yoyo), told me on Twitter that she’s constantly “trying to reach a state of stroller nirvana.”

I may only have one baby, but I feel her on the sentiment and I wondered whether a stroller that folds this small might be the key to baby gear bliss.

Pros: Well, there’s the obvious: the Yoyo is airline certified to be the size of a piece of carry-on luggage (collapsed size: 20.5 x 17 x 7 inches). And it’s 12.8 pounds. And it’s got this magical unfold with just the flick of a wrist. (Like a yo yo. Get it?)

Mommy & Me! Beyoncé and Blue Ivy Play Dress Up at Art Exhibit

07/08/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

Thousands swarmed New York City’s now-closed Domino Factory recently to marvel at Kara Walker‘s sugar-covered sphinx.

But, it turns out, nothing was quite as sweet as the mother-daughter fashion moment between Beyoncé and Blue Ivy.

In a series of snapshots uploaded to her website, Beyoncé, Jay Z and their 2-year-old can be seen taking in the artwork — and sneaking in a few snuggles!

And while we always love a glimpse at hip hop’s royal family, we were even more excited when we noticed the songstress and her adorable Mini Me used the outing to show off their matching floral frocks from Dolce & Gabbana.
