Metro Mama & Metro Baby

By Kim Taylor

Marcel Proust suggested “Let us be grateful to people who make us happy. They are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” And so it is with springtime. To honor the season, here are some hand-picked floral products either to give to mom, or to put a rosy glow on your own cheek.

Xan Confections combines eye-popping shapes and designs with a velvety cocoa quality that renders their selection memorable. The Saintly Sin selection takes a cue from nature with strawberry and pineapple flavors shaped like garden flowers; these delicacies are also low glycemic and diabetic-friendly, and some of the chocolates are vegan and gluten-free. Peruse the selection at http://www.xanconfections.com.

Bach Flower Remedies harness nature’s stress-relieving power, and now offer a version for children that utilizes Clematis, Star of Bethlehem, Cherry Plum, Impatiens and Rock Rose. Kids Rescue Remedy will quell a little one’s stress, anxiety, irritation, impatience, and inattentiveness in a non-habit forming, homeopathic manner – which is truly a gift for mom! Also included in the Bach Kids line is Daydream Remedy and Confidence Remedy. Bonus: no horrible pharma side-effects. Find them at Whole Foods and natural product retailers; http://www.bachremedies.com or http://www.bachkids.com.

Jamie Kreitman offers an array of sophisticated, spring-like delights, including a Citrus Floral Cotton Tote, floral-hued Dip Dye Chiffon Scarves in lollipop colors, handbags, pastel flip flops and tees. Treat yourself or mom to something amazing in this garden of apparel offerings. Shop the offerings at http://www.jamiekreitman.com.

May this month bring the new buds of hope, happiness and opportunity – ready to bloom into something lovely.
