New 2018 Biggest baby shower 5 brands we love

The biggest baby shower is such a popular event for parents and parents to be. It’s a night where NYC and metro area commuters come together to learn about new products and brands that are showcasing to teach parents and media what’s new in the industry. As a mom of 3, which includes a blessing toddler I was in attendance to bring our favorites to our readers here.

1. The new B.box stroller organizer. No only is it stylishly designed but its compact and easy to clean. Love the durability of all things B.box as we may have shared before.

2. Honest beauty and bubble bath! For baby and momma what a perfect way to shop from honest company. The bubble bath is so perfect and definitely tear free. This radiant color is what I have been looking for, for the fall season. The new beauty line is so diverse and on trend. The best part of both and many honest products are long lasting, even the new diapers hold more than most brands.

3 Lovevery is a new brand that I’ve.m come to love because of their message. The sensory tools and toys are great for growing baby. The books on emotion or for next stages of growth and understanding.

4. Babobotanicals is another one of our long time favorite. I have been using this brand since V & K were babies so I am always enthusiastic about what’s new and available to share. This gem that is held by the cutest bear is perfect for this time of year especially. Chafing and chapping and eczema no more with the hydrating stick

5. Fuji Instax and the new line of creatively designed cameras are amazing! The printers are so versatile that it’s hard to tell if it is a printer or just a piece of art. The photo printing from the new Instax camera itself is so clear and easy to share. We enjoy taking our Instax photos on vacation with us all of the time

Our Holiday shopping has begun with Mills at Jersey Gardens

Did you get the memo that Santa is now in town… well at least his many helpers and wonderful happy elves.IMG_2826

We were so excited to visit the The Mills at Jersey Gardens over the weekend !

Everyday Cori must have received the early message from the North Pole and invited us to meet Santa! V & k are convinced!

With so many fun surprises in store, I couldn’t help but anticipate how Bash would react to his interaction with Santa, now at 2 years old; but it was AWESOME!

Everyone enjoyed Mrs Clause story time under the Christmas tree, while giving pointers on how to create the best wish list. We posed for Holiday photos with Mr & Mrs Clause then set off to find a gift for the White elephant exchange.

Watch here:Vlog

We walked the halls of this amazing mall; filled with stores and gifts for everyone before stopping at bath and body works to find a great gift. When planning to buy a gift for someone during the holidays it’s best to have a general understanding of what majority likes….. and this majority included women. Though the mall was loaded with amazing stores like Late spade, banana republic, Sephora to name a few I believe that V & K has their eyes set on a perfect fit.

After finding the perfect gift for our exchange we also picked up teachers gift. It’s always good to include the kiddos when deciding on their teachers gifts. Of course unicorns are all the craze so they couldn’t resist this adorable double purpose gift (perhaps for themselves).

IMG_2841

Our white elephant exchange was quite fun! It was the perfect touch to begin the holiday festivities of meeting with friends and having fun.  Of course there was some TwinDollicious Styling on hand when V , K and Everyday Cori realized that they were dressed in the stylish trend of black and red plaid.

Happy shopping !! We hope that all of your wishes are granted and your gift giving is easy this holiday season.

How to get ready for your holiday soirées

Leading up to the holiday can be the most fun of all!

The parties, the planning, the shopping, the mingling, its all the happy necessities of the holiday season.

After receiving an invitation to the MOMTRENDS holiday soirée I immediately thought “what will I wear?” This was just the beginning of the holiday festivities with friends.

a

The #MTHolidaysoiree hosted by momtrends gets better by the years and because us women love an excuse to get glamorous. I began prepping for the festive night with a pre event blowout at the Worth Street, NYC location of Glamandgo. I am always impressed by the service and time management used to make clients feel and look glamorous, along with the out the door tips to long lasting blowout.

Next major preparation was NAILS of course!

Do any of you Dolls add holiday cheer to your nails?

I, along with V & K enjoyed a manicure by GlossLab ! The NYC trendy salon has a vibe that is kid friendly and relaxing for everyone, including my lap buddy BASH. I chose a matte, charcoal polish that lasted longer than any manicure I’ve had.

While the girls chose emoji and unicorn polish just for kids from the mini polish bar and service…. Prices are just $10 to make them feel just as gorgeous. The topper is the message your manicurist gives while you’re drying, which I along with the two 7 year olds enjoyed very much!

Now for the styling! I truly wanted to feel festive and with the help of Cabi ‘s selection of styles I found the Celebration jacket to be a perfect fit! The vibrant red was contagious and perfect for the holiday soirée!

A standout accessory is always needed to tie the look together and this is where MarciaMoran jewelry took the lead. I wore the Carthay earrings : a stunningly designed earring that drops just below the neckline.

The MTHolidaysoiree took place at Sugar Cane Raw Bar Grill the perfect setting for dinner and cocktails. There’s an intimate area that is set in the back of the restaurant to host your most fabulous holiday party; with smashing views of the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridge ; in the heart of Dumbo, Brooklyn.

Table settings were extra festive and personal thanks to Tighemi ( A Moroccan artiSian home and accessory collection) , Mabel’s Labels and EOcreativeworks . It included just the right amount of festive color with the sweet introduction to the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

It wouldn’t be a holiday soirée without gift giving so each attendee received a gorgeous sac from “EOcreativeworks” filled with goodies. If you’re just receiving those holiday party invites or looking to host try choosing some of the listed brands above for style, gift ideas, decor and location.

Happy Holidays!! We’re just getting started 🎉🎁

*THIS IS A SPONSORED POST, YET ALL OPINIONS ARE OF MY OWN.

We hosted a Beech Nut Naturals baby foodie party

It’s time for holidays and one of our favorites is peeking through the window. That would be Thanksgiving of course !

It’s the holiday where I get to cook all of my favorite meals for the family; from the elders down to the babies.

I learned about Beech-Nut Naturals line of baby food purees inspired by homemade just in time. The line of jar purees was created with input from moms and dads to share how Beech Nut ® Naturals ™ ‘s company from Upstate New York message is real food for babies™!

I wanted to host some of my favorite moms and babies to a casual get together in order to share how feeding your family the best possible food can be introduced at an early stage, as well as using the delicious ingredients made with real fruits and vegetables that we would use at home to create deliciousness for us adults as well.

As a #Beechnutpartner #realfoodforbabies #mommies parties host; I created this delicious purée dip that included real strawberries, fresh blueberries and whipped cream cheese, served with crackers for the moms while the babies feasted on their favorite Beech Nut Naturals fruits and vegetables.

The cutest honey pot jar with the rich green top can be found in your local grocery store for the babies to enjoy, just like these Little’s.

Preparing their future with an introduction to Vanguard NY’s 529 College Savings Plan Coverage

We attended a Vanguard #NY529event at the fun craft studio NYC where the kiddos enjoyed creating while parents planned.

There’s so much that goes into planning for our children’s future before they’re able to decide what it is that they’re interested in doing as a career. To relieve a bit of stress from the future decisions we have decided to invest not only emotionally and supportive but through financial goal setting.

Having multiples can sometimes mean that there’s a 95% chance your child will hit milestones at the same time and college is one of them.

“Pointer for parents of multiples”

* Did you know that when parents of multiples begin the application process for their children finances are automatically viewed as cut in half which allows for qualification to assistance if needed?

Also did you ever wonder how much debt within USA is in student loans? Over 1 trillion dollars. I’ll say that a perfect way to lower this deficit is by starting a NYs 529 plan.

NYs529 plan is a kind of investment account that can be used towards higher education savings ; usually sponsored by states. Your earnings grow federally as you contribute and the best part is that anyone in the family can contribute to the plan. Contribution limits are generally high, yet there is no minimum to start the plan.

The plan does not have to only be used within the state. The NYs529 Plan can be used at any eligible educational institution that has a federal school code.

KEY POINT: thanks to the representatives

🔑 A key point to take in is that there are no restrictions to opening an account and a beneficiary is able to have many accounts. As well as Being able to use the plan for books, supplies, tools whether attending post secondary trade or vocational schools.

Disclaimer: Compensation was provided by NY 529 Direct via MomTrends. The opinions expressed herein are those of the author and are not indicative of the opinion of NY 529 Direct or Momtrends.

Before you invest, consider whether your or the beneficiary’s home state offers any state tax or other benefits that are only available for investments in that state’s 529 plan.

The Comptroller of the State of New York and the New York State Higher Education Services Corporation are the Program Administrators and are responsible for implementing and administering the Direct Plan. Ascensus Broker Dealer Services, Inc., serves as Program Manager and, in connection with its affiliates, provides recordkeeping and administrative

support services and is responsible for day-to-day operations of the Direct Plan. The Vanguard Group, Inc., serves as the Investment Manager. Vanguard Marketing Corporation markets, distributes, and underwrites the Direct Plan.

No guarantee: None of the State of New York, its agencies, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), The Vanguard Group, Inc., Ascensus Broker Dealer Services, Inc., nor any of their applicable affiliates insures accounts or guarantees the principal deposited therein or any investment returns on any account or investment portfolio.

New York’s 529 College Savings Program currently includes two separate 529 plans. The Direct Plan is sold directly by the Program. You may also participate in the Advisor Plan, which is sold exclusively through financial advisors and has different investment options and higher fees and expenses as well as financial advisor compensation.For more information about New York’s 529 College Savings Program Direct Plan, obtain a Disclosure Booklet and Tuition Savings Agreement at http://www.nysaves.org or by calling 1-877- NYSAVES. This includes investment objectives, risks, charges, expenses, and other information. You should read and consider them carefully before investing.

Our NEW go to brand for home decor and style for the family is at JCPENNEY

Over the weekend a big thing happened at JC Penney and I’m bringing the good to you!

An exclusive brand for JCPenney has been curated into a collection of classic styles to mix and match for the entire family and the home.

This super exciting brand is called Peyton & Parker!

For me as a one stop shopper and style lover this is game changer especially during the holiday season.

Peyton & Parker is the photo ready collection that is perfect for coordinating a style or home decor with perfect mix and match pieces. It’s NOW possible to even bring the photo studio to your home for the holidays for some real life shots…. just the way we love!

I had the privilege of trying out the new brand in a style challenge and couldn’t find a piece I didn’t love; so much so that I did some boys styling and the whole family. This sweater has actually just made my wish list.

The new lifestyle brand is designed entirely by the in-house design team at JCPenney and sold exclusively at their stores and online. It’s truly a moms dream come true.

Peyton & Parker is now available to make instagramable moments real and simple for you and yours.

After attending a hosted event for moms curated by our friends at momtrends. I’m sharing how I experienced a list of brands in real life just to bring you a moms influential insight on some goodness you will love!

Now of course if you’re a parent you know that the start of school and change of seasons bring on sicknesses and the FLU. Well BoironUSA introduces us parents to more healthy days and less sick days with their homeopathic medicines. Boiron medicines do not contain any of the ingredients questioned by FDA for use in children under 4. They’re best know for the top selling flu medicine Oscillococcinum and the line of cough and cold relief medicines including chestal and cold calm. *We all know that it’s that time of year.

When you’re on a roll to happy healthy holidays you want to do it in style this is where JCPenney steps in. They have just launched a new lifestyle brand : Peyton & Parker. You can get your hands on the amazing new brand by shopping the store exclusively or on line Peyton & Parker by JCP

I’m personally in love with home decor and even enjoy adding the kiddos toys (because it is a part of our lifestyle) into the homes setting, which is why http://www.vtechkids.com/ are our go to for quality, sustainability, fun, learning and style. It is actually the world leader in innovative educational products that enrich your child’s development. We’re especially highlighting the electronic learning products that include baby walk alongs to the KidiZoom Smart watch DX2 for holiday gifting.

Fun and play is always great but with holiday fun also comes lots of family outings and delicious food. If your babes are eating meals they’re probably exposed to different foods and textures. It’s recommended to introduce them to a probiotic that will reduce fussiness due to occasional digestive upset while developing a healthy digestive and immune system; which is where http://www.culturelle.com/ comes in.

Culturelle is a pediatrician recommended brand based on a 2016 survey among pediatricians recommending a kids probiotic brand. The product is not intended to diagnose, treat , cure or prevent any disease, but contain safe and gentle ingredients that work naturally with your baby’s body.
