outdoor pillows (backed in vibrant
all-weather Sunbrella fabrics), clocks
and, of course, numbers, plus custom
designs — all intended for indoor-
outdoor use and all manipulating the
soft-to-the-touch grassy faux green-
ery.
After posting some pictures of her
pillows on Facebook last year, she
got a call from an old friend who
loved them. Judy Solway Jennings,
who grew up in Bloomfield Hills and
whose parents were friends of Blas'
parents, told Solway she worked for
Frontgate, a high-end home furnish-
ings and accessories website and
catalogue, and a deal was sealed:The
pair became business partners, and
together they sold more than 300
pillows last year alone.They recently
counted Britney Spears as one of their
Facebook and Twitter followers.
"I'm an outdoors guru, with a bit of
spirituality mixed in," says Blas."I want
to create a lifestyle. I want to connect
people with Mother Nature with all
the comfort and style of the modern
age'

BABY LOVE

Just in time to share with all the
moms-to-be for Mother's Day this
month, Melissa Schweiger and An-
nette Rubin have paired to author

Belli Beautiful: The Essential Guide to
the Safest Health and Beauty Prod-
ucts for Pregnancy, Mom and Baby

(DeCapo; $16.99), which landed on
bookshelves in April.
Schweiger, a beauty and style
aficionado, grew up in Ann Arbor but
headed to New York City for a writing
career (Seventeen, Marie Claire and
InStyle magazines), eventually becom-

ing the beauty
editor at Sephora
and writing their
book Sephora: The

RIVINI

COUTURE BRIDAL COLLECTION

Ultimate Guide
to Makeup, Skin
and Hair from the
Beauty Author-
ity (HarperCollins;

2008).
While pregnant
with the first of her
two boys in 2008,
her attention naturally turned to the
beauty and skincare products best
for pregnant women and the babies
within. So she teamed with Annette
Rubin, founder of Belli Skincare, the
No. 1 pregnancy- and baby-safe
beauty brand recommended by
ob-gyns, to help pregnant women
go beyond the usual warnings from
their doctors about which foods and
medications to avoid and to educate
them about which beauty and skin-
care ingredients can be potentially
harmful to their unborn child through
topical absorption.
"Many of the ingredients used in
beauty products are normally safe,
but when applied during pregnancy
are actually linked to birth defects
and miscarriage," says Schweiger.
Carefully screening hundreds of
beauty products and vetting their
ingredients for links to birth defects
and hormone disruption, Schweiger
and Rubin explain which ingredients
to avoid — and which to get the most
of — and recommend a boatload of
pregnancy and baby products they
love, plus share plenty of their own
wonderful and varying adventures in
motherhood.

where so many families still flock every summer. Today, the
chair still epitomizes summertime-cottage relaxation, and for
this kid-sized version, Lands End went to a family-owned
woodworking company in New York that's been in
business for more than 100 years. Made of hand-
selected red maple from sustainably managed local
forests, the Kids' Painted Adirondack Chair ($150) is
available is an assortment of colors and can be person-
alized for $6.
For adults who want in on the comfort (and style),
Lands End also offers a grown-up Adirondack Chair
($250), with a waterfall curve at the knee. Both have wide arms to hold a
glass of lemonade and a book. Landsend.com; (800) 963-4816.
