September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month -

Pink and Gray Bedding -

Pink and grey baby and child bedding seems to be the new pink and chocolate! Boy were we ready for change! Soft pinks mix with greys to create a cool, soothing nursery or child’s bedroom. We love this Stella Grey crib set by New Arrivals with the grey damask prints and pink accents.

Donated with Love -

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and sadly, most of us have either fought against this terrible disease, or we know someone that has. We are reminded this month of the importance to join in the fight against cancer.

These two girls recently donated their hair through the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program. There are many programs available – Locks of Love, Wigs for Kids, Cuts for Cancer, Look Good Feel Better Campaign, among several others. Each program has different requirements and supports different groups. Be sure to read before donating.

(giggling while feeling good about donating their hair!)

Off to help someone!

Here are Pantene’s requirements:

Donated hair must be a minimum of 8 inches long (measure hair from just above the elastic band of the ponytail to the ends).

A huge thank you to All About U Salon in McKinney!

**A huge thank you to All About U Salon in McKinney for helping the girls with their new styles.

Requirements cont:

Wavy/curly hair texture is fine—you may straighten hair to measure.

Hair should be freshly washed and completely dry, without any styling products.

Hair may be coloured with vegetable dyes, rinses and semi-permanent dyes. It cannot be bleached, permanently coloured or chemically treated.

Hair may not be more than 5 percent gray.

Here’s why:
It takes at least six ponytails to make a Pantene Beautiful Lengths wig; in general, each ponytail comes from a different person and is a different colour. Even though some hair colours may look similar, including gray hair, each is completely unique.

For a realistic-looking wig that has consistent colour throughout, donated ponytails must be processed and then dyed to the same shade. It is critical for each ponytail to absorb dyes at the same rate in order to create wigs of consistent, natural-looking colour.

Gray hair, as well as some chemically-treated or permanently-coloured hair, does not absorb dye at the same rate as other types of hair. It is much harder to colour and, once coloured, fades more quickly..

Most permanently-coloured hair, once it is processed and re-coloured, is too fragile and breakable under the rigorous processing required during the production of a Pantene Beautiful Lengths wig.

There are so many ways to help – donations, walks, supporting a friend by sitting with them during treatments, baking for a family in need, running errands for a Mom too tired from treatment, writing a letter, cutting your hair…. We hope you join in the fight in your special way today! Thank you!!

Blooming Funny!

Baby BloomersWe’ve decided to start posting some of the funny stories that happen daily at our store. Today a Dad walked into our store frazzled and explained that he had left the house with his five year old only to arrive for lunch realizing he had forgotten her shorts! In his defense, her t-shirt was rather long :) He asked if we had any shorts and he was in luck! Normally, we only carry infant and toddler bloomers, but this past Fall we began carrying shorts and clothes up to size 6. He chose some of our practical playground shorts. Perfect under dresses (or long t-shirts) and also cute enough to wear paired with a cute tee or tank. Trimmed in chiffon ruffles and available in sizes 2T, 4T and 6. Dads get a bad rap for not being as prepared as Moms, but I think he did a great job solving his problem! I would have ended up driving home and missing lunch, but not him. Good job!
