How to Enter Amex’s EveryDay Moments Mother’s Day Contest

04/16/2014 at 01:25 PM ET

American Express is launching its new Amex EveryDay credit card with a year-long campaign to shine a spotlight on America’s #EveryDayMoments — from quality time with the kids to a night out with friends.

It kicks off this month with a Mother’s Day selfie and snapshots photo contest culminating in an epic prize — a getaway to New York City for 50 winners and their guests. American Express will continue to recognize and reward consumers for sharing their #EveryDayMoments throughout the year with a series of themed contests, sweeps and unique experiences, like a live concert with Maroon 5 streamed nationally on June 20 and a soon-to-be-announced Father’s Day Sweeps.

The Mother’s Day contest includes an advertisement featuring Tina Fey and daughters Alice, 8, and Penelope, 2. Kristen Bell has also teamed up with the company to share a selfie — the Frozen star snapped a shot of herself captioned, “Making some delicious baby food with veggies from the garden and farm fresh local delivery.”

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.
