Top 50 Design Blogs for Moms
Need fresh ideas to spruce up your kids' room? Looking for cool vintage finds for unusual birthday gifts? Can't find a one-of-a-kind birthday party theme? Welcome to Babble's list of the Top 50 Design Blogs, where you'll spend hours staring in amazement at all the eye candy that unlimited imagination can create.
For years, I would scour magazines looking for the best of the best in d'cor, fashion and lifestyle for kids. No wonder I'm a bit blog-obsessed. There's simply no better, more efficient or prettier way to score amazing finds than via mom-owned and mom-run Design Blogs.
As the co-founder of Mamaista.com, a blogger for Babble's Family Style blog, and a former magazine editor, I like to think I know a thing or two about what qualifies as good design. So when Babble.com asked me to pick a list of the top 50 design blogs, I was excited, to say the least. While it's hard to whittle the best 50 and rank them in order of fabulosity (and of course, we can't forget our own Family Style blog), I think this list gives you a taste of the amazing range. From small blogs out of New Zealand to huge award-winning blogs from the USA, these 50 Mom Design Blogs come out on top. - Elina Furman

Planet Awesome Kid’s Rankings
The What’s What:
Think Sartorialist for hip, downtown kids and the parents who can’t get enough of them. With gorgeous photos submitted by top kid photographers (Ana Schechter is on the masthead), Planet Awesome Kid truly lives up to its moniker. The site isn’t just about hipness, either; they teamed up with Global Action for Children to help raise money for the cause through amazing kid-centric events.
Not only does Julia Samersova have a perfectly turned out daughter, Violet, she also has a day job as head of her own casting agency, Cast Inc., working with some of the biggest names in the kids and women’s fashion industry. Think Tory Burch, Tide and J. Crew.
