Meet Mom-Entrepreneur and Founder of the Noreen Kidwai Collection for Little Boys + Special Offer!

noreen

After the birth of her son, style-conscious mom Noreen Kidwai was always on the lookout for high-quality, trendy clothing to dress him in. She spent endless hours trying to find the boys’ counterparts for the plethora of options available for girls but coming up empty was frustrating. “Why should any mom be deprived of fashionable outfits for her child based on their gender?,” wondered Kidwai.

She soon realized that she was not the only one tired of all the boring neutrals, plaid patterns, and funny characters that made up the entire boys’ clothing variety. Recognizing this huge void, Kidwai decided to marry up her eye for style and her passion for fashion to design her own line of modern clothing for baby boys.

In the fall of 2013, Noreen Kidwai launched her debut collection with a niche focus on baby boys up to 2 years old. She wanted to bring something that wasn’t done before or common for little boys. Bright colors, bold stripes, skinny pants and suspenders are all part of her A/W 13 collection.  “My entire MO behind venturing down this path is passion. I’m obsessed with aesthetics and a perfectionist when it comes down to it,” says Kidwai about her approach. “It’s time for our little men to knock the socks off their female counterparts!”

The Noreen Kidwai Collection is for the style savvy mom who loves a well-dressed child, and who struggles to find hip, cool options for him. Her clothing is for all the moms who believe their sons have style too, and deserve to showcase their adorable personalities with some metro-chic flair. You’ll find sophisticated, effortlessly chic pieces made of the finest European fabrics, and produced locally in the USA. The entire collection is designed to be mixed and matched – letting our little boys’ personalities shine through.

Today enjoy an exclusive 25% off everything offer on her site with code “PlumNK” at checkout! Also, enter for a chance to WIN a complete Noreen Kidwai outfit ($140 value)! Simply enter your email address and sign up for Noreen Kidwai newsletter on her homepage. To start shopping and enter the giveaway, visit www.noreenkidwai.com.

FlexJobs: Find a Flexible Work-from-Home Job + Special Offer for Plum Members!

flexjobs2

FlexJobs.com is the leading career-finding website for telecommuting and flexible jobs.  With FlexJobs.com, moms can have it all.

In 2007, Sara Sutton Fell was looking for a flexible job after being laid off. Since she was starting a family — and was seven months pregnant with her first child — she wanted a job that was in line with her career and would allow for flexible options like telecommuting. Sutton Fell knew these jobs existed but was overwhelmed by the countless scams online. That’s when the idea for FlexJobs came to her: A place where job seekers like herself could find professional-level, legitimate work-from-home jobs and flexible work options, all in one place, without scams or ads.

Since then, FlexJobs has helped over 680,000 job seekers in their search for flexible work options and work-life balance. Shakira W., a mother of six from Charlotte, North Carolina, started using FlexJobs after seeing the company featured on Good Morning America. She found a full-time work-from-home job with Convergys, a customer and human resources management firm based in Ohio.

“I had been looking for a work-from-home job for years. When I saw FlexJobs on Good Morning America, I knew it was for me. I was blessed to receive a full-time, work-from-home job that’s not only great for my family but is also with a reputable company. It gives me the chance to be at home with my children—especially the younger ones—and prepare dinner on my lunch break, all while fulfilling my desire to have a job and be confident in knowing that I did it.”

Today, FlexJobs is here with a special offer just for Plum Moms: 50% OFF a 3- or 12-month FlexJobs.com subscription – click here!
