Lifestyle Inspirations For Your Growing Family


Designing a beautiful nursery is like building the perfect Nest. Choosing colors and fabrics – or twigs and leaves – is only the beginning. This special room is the backdrop of your child’s earliest memories. So, fly beyond the treetops and venture into a forest of enchanted possibilities.

Wendy Bellissimo, who supplied her trademark “Moses” basket for Rachel’s baby on “Friends,” designs custom furniture and bedding for celebrity clients including Brooke Shields, Kelly Ripa, Catherine Bell, and Teri Polo. Her designs are available in stores online and across the country. In Nesting, she shares her design philosophy of combining whimsical elegance and functional luxury.

Nesting, as featured on “Oprah,” is a gorgeous coffee table book printed in Italy, with photographs of custom-designed celebrity nurseries as well as baby showers, birthday parties, tips on decorating – and a DVD packed with do-it-yourself craft ideas.

Leslie trailed Wendy through meetings with textile manufacturers, emergency room visits, and kid-crazed family dinners. Her words enhance the images and spread the message of this lifestyle guru for hip moms.

A Boob’s Life

A Boob's Life


Author Leslie Lehr wants to talk about boobs. She’s gone from size AA to DDDD and everything between, from puberty to motherhood, enhancement to cancer, and beyond. And she’s not alone - these are classic life stages for women today.

At turns funny and heartbreaking, A Boob’s Life explores both the joys and hazards inherent to living in a woman’s body. Lehr deftly blends her personal narrative with national history, starting in the 1960s with the women’s liberation movement and moving to the current feminist dialogue and what it means to be a woman. Her insightful and clever writing analyzes how America’s obsession with the female form has affected her own life’s journey and the psyche of all women today.

From her prize-winning fiction to her viral New York Times Modern Love essay, exploring the challenges facing contemporary women has been Lehr’s life-long passion. A Boob’s Life, her first project since breast cancer treatment, continues this mission, taking readers on a wildly informative, deeply personal, and utterly relatable journey. No matter your gender, you’ll never view this sexy and sacred body part the same way again.
