Art matters!! Don’t we all agree!?
V & K usually spend their days after school with extra curricular activities as many other fortunate children do, but it’s those moments when they find tools and objects around the house to express their creativity that I adore.
Yes, twins enjoy individual things but don’t forget there are many things to enjoy together. We are all born creative beings. Some of us are able to express it at an early age while others need to explore themselves and find their creative purpose.
Let’s continue to share our creative commonalities while encouraging each other on the sidelines during our individual time to shine.

Moms this ones for you!
Have you ever been awakened out of sleep with the nightmare of having to go on a road trip alone with your children. Well I can attempt to put your mind at ease and give you the courage to try it after you read this.
Let’s begin with planning your road trips map along with how many stops you are willing to take ; all dependent on how far your trip will take you. For instance a 4 hour trip should call for (notice I said should) 2 stops the most. That is if you set the rule to only do potty and snacking on the gas breaks it will eliminate the sudden emergency.. this would also mean no drinking or heavy snacking while you’re driving.
Next, what about entertainment to keep everyone individually busy? Encourage homework that includes a subject your children are interested in along with a surprise goodie once it’s all done.
Last and most importantly is to keep your self in great spirits while driving because as distracting as the back seat drivers can be safety is always your number one priority then keeping everyone happy comes naturally.
First night in snack healthier and rest…
We’re sharing some of our happy road trip moments
P.S we’re letting dad join in on the fun on day 3

We’re ready for all of the spring colors and flowers that are in season for kids fashion & styles. V & K cannot wait to wear the new patchy tutus that come in their favorite color pink and of course that special staple color black. These tutus were hand designed by them and have worked their way into the next adventures of TwinDolliciius sisters Violet and Kelly’s wardrobe. You’ll be able to read about their next adventure ” Summer camp here we come” this fall…. but for NOW let’s enjoy some of our favorite Spring Fashion Inspiration .

Please send a virtual pinch this way, because I am having a moment! We have worked so hard on creating TwinDollicious as an art form on the adventurous life with V & K Dolls. It is amazing to be able to see A published piece on the shelves of one of the top visited Barnes and Noble stores in NYC.
I had the honor of working with alpha key organizer Shalom Israel Diggs and her team… such a beautiful group of people at the Alpha key Book fair on March 4th, and would love to share some of the awesome outcomes of working with great people.
First About the Alpha key organizations partnership with Barnes and Noble: Alpha is an art form org which brings art, dance and literacy all together… which is why we saw fit to work together.

Hello 2017!!! Let’s do this!
Wow have the last few weeks been something to talk about or what? With that; we’re moving forward to new beginnings and opening doors to new opportunities for V & K.
Looking back at 2016 up to now the girls have began to show their differences in interests, style and friendships. I have not read the expert guide on raising twins but Personalities are changing along with responsibilities in the girls relationship. Thanks! Just when I thought I had it figured out.
For those of you who may not know what this means; it’s like a twin shift.
This happens when twins begin to do things that are out of character for themselves but more of the things that their twin would do. It also happens with food, style and likes.
If you’re a parent of multiples or are a multiple……ask yourself did you always find yourself/or your child’s behavior carefree, or super organized and then began to change?
V & K’s current shift has been a confidence booster surprise! Suddenly someone (we won’t reveal which one…can you guess who?) is interested in singing, dancing, camera time and class participation. While the other remains confident but with a bit of cautiousness. It isn’t cautious behavior to be alarmed of but perhaps less carefree. In a way as to let one twin shine while she takes a step aside for her sister to experience some fun.
May they always have each others back!
