Building a Nest…a PetitNest

PetitNest's Sophie Dresser/Changing Table

As a woman, your internal “baby” clock goes off without you doing a thing, right? Well, mine just went off as I perused the online store of PetitNest‘s  modern collection of nursery furniture (a brainchild of actress Tiffani Thiessen and designer Lonni Paul). The line made my eggs do a dance in hopes of someday living in a room filled with these delicious designs.

PetitNest, eco-friendly and made in the USA (go American pride!) – include not only a sublime selection of cribs, changing stations and gliders – but are soon to also sell a bevy of fashionable pillows, bedding collections and sheets for le petit YOU. Your bebe will grow up enveloped in ecologically hip craftsmanship and when it is time for “big kid” furniture, PetitNest’s all wood designs can easily transition into another room in the home (I see myself reading a good book in that Luc glider sans a baby and those stunning bird decals flying over my own “big girl” bed!).

Breaking out of the traditional, formula of “pink” for girls and “blue” for boys, PetitNest opens up a child’s world by offering the full spectrum of the color palette for their room. With the growing trend of couples waiting until birth to learn the sex of their baby, PetitNest provides the ideal solution to the design challenge of creating a baby’s room that is equally suited to a boy or a girl. The collection empowers families to maintain the same high standards of style and design throughout their home in their children’s rooms by creating environments that seamlessly integrate into their homes.

All products can be purchased on the PetitNest website.

The LG Ultimate Jellybean Count…Win a Fridge!

30 Aug

By Christabelle..

Enter to Guess Number of Jelly Beans Packed Inside LG’s New Super-Capacity Refrigerator for Chance to Win Ultimate Kitchen Makeover

Following the launch of its new super-capacity French-door refrigerator, the largest capacity model in its class, LG Electronics USA today announced the “LG Ultimate Jelly Bean Count Contest,” an online competition that takes Main Street USA’s favorite unofficial unit of measurement to a whole new level. The contest challenges anyone and everyone to guess how many jelly beans can fit inside the spacious refrigerator. The winner will receive a complete kitchen makeover, built around LG’s premium kitchen suite valued at more than $6,500.

The rules to enter are simple: Watch the video on LG’s Facebook page (facebook.com/LGUSA), hit the “Like” button and make up to three guesses. Entrants may share the news of the contest and an opportunity to join the fun with their Facebook friends by “gifting” a jelly bean. During each week of the contest, a winner will be drawn randomly from the pool of entrants who will receive a $100 gift card. By the end of the six-week contest, the person who comes closest to the winning number of jelly beans without going over will be declared the winner. The grand prize is an LG Ultimate Kitchen Makeover – with the new super-capacity French-door refrigerator (model LFX31925), and other premium LG appliances, including a freestanding double-oven range (model LDE3017), a steam dishwasher (model LDF7932), and an over-the-range microwave (model LMH2016).

LG’s new super-capacity French-door refrigerator offers the largest capacity of any 36-inch refrigerator currently on the market. While most 36-inch-width refrigerators offer 25 cubic feet of capacity, LG’s new super-capacity French-door refrigerator offers a spacious 31 cubic feet – the largest capacity in its class and approximately six more cubic feet of space than standard models for this footprint.

In addition to its super large capacity, LG’s new refrigerator also offers consumers the most shelf space available in a 36-inch-wide refrigerator. To accomplish this, the refrigerator includes LG’s innovative Slim SpacePlus™ feature that frees up more space inside the refrigerator. Unlike bulky icemakers that sacrifice shelf space, Slim SpacePlus relocates the ice system inside the door, making way for usable door bins and a top shelf entirely free of obstructions. With the slimmest and most effective insulation LG has ever made (23 percent thinner than previous LG models), consumers can enjoy expanded refrigerator capacity without sacrificing energy efficiency.

The LG Ultimate Jelly Bean Count Contest will run from Aug. 11 through Sept. 21, 2011. For complete rules, details and your chance to enter, visit LG’s Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/LGUSA.
