Harlow Madden’s Snazzy Sneakers October 15, 2010


Harlow Madden sure looks pretty in pink!

While out for family pizza night with dad Joel Madden, mom Nicole Richie and little brother Sparrow, the adorable 2-year-old stepped out in an adorable girlie-meets-punk ensemble (tiered print dress, graffiti-style sneakers and flower headband). But it was her colorful footwear that really caught our eye.

Turns out the curly-haired cutie was sporting Twinkle Toes Dualing Hearts ($37) shoes from SKECHERS KIDS. Bright and glittery, they feature a hip graphic design and light up! (

These snazzy sneakers would look adorable paired with our Sama Rockstar Dresses! The colors in the shoe go perfectly with the our raspberry rose print. Keep it rockin’ Harlow! Check out for more color options!

Family Groove: MOM ON THE STREET, Shivani Gupta! September 1, 2010


Our very own Shivani Gupta, Sama CEO, was featured on The Family Groove’s Mom On The Street series! Here is what she and a few other moms had to say!

Welcome to “Mom on the Street” (ya know, like “Man on the Street”) by Family Groove. Each month, we’ll be asking moms just like you for a slice of their sage advice, insider tips or tried-and-true wisdom in the hopes that their unique brand of mothering inspires, assuages, calms, strengthens and even amuses you.

This month’s question:

What are you looking forward to this fall?

Blakeley Smart  and Family Blakeley Smart is the founder of Bronzed Envy (, a mobile airbrush tanning franchise. Here’s what this Round Rock, Texas, mother of two has to say:

“Fall is such a great time of the year for my family. School starts again, [there are] new teachers, kids have a schedule, and Mom gets some much-needed work done. My youngest will be starting kindergarten this year, so I’m really looking forward to the excitement that comes with that, but it’s topped with a bit of sadness knowing my last little chickadee is leaving the nest. So for me, this fall brings about a new chapter of my life. After a hot, chaotic yet fun summer, come fall, it’s an exciting time for me as well to set new goals with my business and take it to an all-new level!”

Laurie Penix  and family Laurie Penix is the creator and co-founder of Zomm (, a keychain-sized wireless leash with call notification and personal safety features for Bluetooth-enabled phones.

Here is what this Tulsa, Okla., mother of three has to say:

“Most people are surprised to hear that I love the outdoors. The warmer months are great, for obvious reasons, but I also love watching the seasons change to the fall. I spend a lot of time at the lake enjoying the sun, fishing and relaxing. The best part has to be the fall sunsets; they are so beautiful.”

Shivani Gupta Shivani Gupta is the co-owner of Sama Baby (, makers of luxury organic cotton clothing for babies and toddlers. Here’s what this Houston, Texas, mom-to-be has to say:

“I am looking forward to creating a wonderful eco-nursery for the newest addition to my family. For us, we have learned that airing out products when you get them is very important—in order to make sure all the chemicals are released and not trapped in the nursery, which could be harmful for your baby. For us, we really believe that going green is an easy choice, and there are so many products out there. We have looked at many other products, from organic mattresses to wonderful wooden toys, and are able to find them at great prices, and in wonderful designs. We are even looking into no-VOC paint as well as recycled wood for the crib—as we think about the environment in every aspect. Going green is so easy in today’s age—and there are so many great ideas and sites on how to be a better environmentalist while thinking about your child! At Sama Baby, we have been very excited in creating organic cotton clothing for little ones—and this fall we are featuring our latest product: our organic cotton denim line, which is super stylish, comfortable and affordable. For us, fall is a great season to stay warm, happy and enjoy the beautiful colored leaves. We love the new season and what it brings for everyone.”

Parminder Nagra and family are Sama Fans! July 9, 2010

James Stenson

Parminder Nagra and her husband, photographer James Stenson, welcomed a baby boy last year! Parminder’s rep told US Weekly that “Mother, daddy and baby are all doing great.” They named their son Kai David Singh Stenson, which is pretty cute. Although Kai has become something of a standard baby name amongst celebrities,  Kai is a Hawaiian name meaning “sea”, and it is traditionally for boys.
Parminder Nagra, best known for her role as Dr. Neela Rasgotra on NBC’s ER.
Parminder and Stenson had been together for seven years when she became pregnant – they married only a month after she announced her pregnancy.  At their civil ceremony in California, ER friend and costar Maura Tierney officiated, and John Stamos played the drums, what a fun wedding!  Congratulations to the happy family!

We recently received a thank you note from the family through Jewels and Pinstripes:

On behalf of Kai, Thanks once again. So many goodies! As you can see the cards have been put to good use already. I hope the bag auctioned on line will raise a ton of money. I’m pretty much using everything from the storage jars to the super cute & durable bib. The ‘Nourish’ water went on the first day! The stonz wear booties were put to good use last winter so I’m sure they’ll be used again this year.
The socks were super cute & fun and of course the shoes now he is begging to walk are great & cute.
Thank you Thank you Thank you,
Kindest Regards,

Keep your eye out for Kai in Sama Baby! To shop for your very own SAMA products visit us on the web,

Business Spotlight: Sama Baby
BY Breanne Hight

Family — it’s at the core of Mindful Mama’s values, which is why we have to introduce you to the Gutapas. They’re the masterminds behind Sama Baby, and center their business on family and eco-friendly values!

“Sama” is an ancient Sanskrit word that means balance, calmness and serenity — a meaning the Gutapa family doesn’t take lightly! Sama Baby follows the highest standards when making their organic cotton garments, using eco-friendly dyes, an environmentally-safe dying processes, and biodegradable bags to store their fabrics.

“People ask me why we use all-natural products when creating our garments. They say the designs are so adorable they will sell themselves, but that’s not enough for us. Yes, we want to create beautiful garments but not at the expense of our planet. We want to do our part. I know Sama Baby can make a difference,” explained head designer, Neha Gupta.

Staying true to their heritage, the Guptas produce Sama Baby products in India, where the family frequently visits their cotton fields and oversees production. All Sama Baby products are fair-trade, and the farmers use organic vegetables as the rotation crop to replenish soil and feed cotton farmers.

Sama Baby’s denim line debuted last month, and we must say — the jeans are absolutely adorable (and affordable!). For more information, please visit Sama Baby online.
