I’m so happy to announce the launch of mini:licious, it is the “mini” version of my fashion, style & lifestyle blog nitro:licious. Some of you may think why did I choose to launch a baby blog when I don’t yet have kids? It’s simple…I love kids and love to dress up my godchildren and friend’s kids, and also admires stylish tots. mini:licious covers a unique blend of street style, high style, lifestyle and inspiration of your favorite minis.

This past Saturday, January 11th, while I was out in Los Angeles for work and meetings I decided to host a pre-launch party to introduce mini:licious. Thanks to one of my besties and goddaugther’s mother, Carla Gomes, I was able to host my first baby event at her modern cafe and playground, Chubby Cheek Cafe. I love the cafe, super cute playground and the food is yum! Make sure to check it out if you live or is visiting LA, wish they had a cute kids cafe like that in NYC!

I was also lucky to have Maria Agurto from Arty Crafty Cakes make my logo come to life in a 3D fondant teddy bear cake complete with Jordan 3s! How cute is the cake and cupcakes? She’s super talented, that centerpiece was everything, so obsessed with it!

I was also super happy to meet a lot of haute mommies and their babies in LA, some of which are new and old friends. I don’t have a whole lot of mommy friends but props to all of them, don’t know how they do it and still look so fabulous. I’m so glad the first event I hosted was at capacity I had over 25 families come through to celebrate! Thanks to you all for a successful event.

Last but not least, how can my guests leave without fabulous gift bags for their little ones? Big thanks to my sponsors: Disney, H&M, Haddad Brands, Herschel Supply Co., HUF, Lum Lum Dolls, Milkin’ Cookies, New Era, Rhyla, Shea Moisture, Zooma and XTR Toys! Stay tuned for a giveaway on the gift bag!
