Century City, CA (January 11, 2007) There is no better way to spend a day for the mother of a 9-month old, her daughter and a ready-to-pop pregnant lady then to stroll around this extensive and exciting gift suite celebrating The Golden Globes, held at the Century Plaza Hotel. With all proceeds being donated to EBMRF (Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation), it was a philanthropic endeavor as well as a day of celebrity sightings and non-stop vendor gifts!
This event was made for parents to bring the children along (an extra special bonus for those of us with precious little ones), with face-painting, arts & crafts, balloon creations, mommy/daddy and me manicures and much more! Not to mention that all of the vendors were showing and giving away items just for the kids from newborn to big kids. We were even lucky enough to encounter a couple of vendors focused on pregnancy, whose gifts came in all too handy.
Outside of the celebrities (as though you could really be outside the celebs), such as Vivica A. Fox, Linda Cardellini, Felicity Huffman, Penelope Ann Miller, Joely Fisher, Denise Richards, Angie Harmon, Angela Bassett and so many more we couldn't count, the sponsor booths were outstanding. So many are worth mentioning, we decided to break up the article into two parts in order to cover as much as we possibly can!
Here's a taste of our day:

They can be worn during and after labor. They photograph well replacing the ugly, institutional hospital gown in the background of baby's first photo that gets emailed to family and friends - and fit better than the hospital issued model (they actually snap down the back to cover a patient's behind and are sized to fit women, not 300 lb. six foot men).
