Let’s talk about Spring

It’s officially Spring and the sun came along with it! 

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 .

Art, Fashion, Friends and Fun

We truly enjoy meeting new friends! social media and here on the blog have made it even more fun to meet great people.  We recently teamed up with other creatives to do a workshop in NYC at an Argotea location.  

First, we recommend you taking a stop in for their delicious baked goods and TEA if there’s one in your neighborhood.

Now, when our friend Sonia of mixed up clothing co (based in LA) http://www.mixedupclothing.com planned a trip to NY to collaborate with friends we were honored to be apart of it. Within one circle of friends others were created. 

Shalom Israel Diggs of Alpha key http://www.wordartbyshalomisrael.com and TwinDollicious are now in the works to bring you a fun day in February that we’d love for you to join in on….. You can send an email reservation to Email : (subject line reserve my spot for ?_ children) 

Here area few images of what Alpha key is all about and details on their up and coming event in collaboration with Care Bears.


The truth about Fall

New York’s Falls are starting to look soooo good! The crisp smell of a cool breeze, with the mix of sun has kept our TwinDollicious crew outdoors to enjoy all of the Halloween/Fall activities. 

We’ve ventured to 3 pumpkin patches and apple orchards so far and plan to keep going throughout the month.  Why not… They make for the best photos. 

We chose these 3 stops because of their locations and ammenities of fun.

Our First visit was to Battle Orchids (91 Wemrock Rd, Freehold NJ) which is a favorite repeat of ours. 


The Second visit was to Easton PA, Raub Farms https://maps.google.com/maps?client=safari&channel=iphone_bm&um=1&ie=UTF-8&fb=1&gl=us&entry=s&sa=X&ftid=0x89c469570d3e9781:0x17489cbfa8172602&gmm=CgIgAQ%3D%3D. Which has the most amazing art maze. Every year a local artist creates a new design within the Corn maze and this years theme was farm scene treasure hunt. 

Our third pumpkin patch adventure took place in Hillsdale NJ; Demarest Farms: 244 Werimus Road. Where a playground stood by the main entrance for the kiddies to enjoy before buying fresh farm picked and baked pies in the market.


The truth is that Halloween isn’t here yet and there’s so much more to do…like NYC’s Lincoln Center Halloween event… Which we will be sharing here, along with costume favorites! 

****what will you be this Halloween?

 Fall has become one our most anticipated times of the year 🎃🎃

Spending Our Summer With The Wellie Wishers

Wellie Wishers!! The new book series and dolls by the American Girl brand could not have come at a better time.  It’s officially the count down to the last days of the school year and those wonderful 5 -7 year old girls would appreciate an introduction to a bit of adventure from the garden stories along with a new best friend to dress up. 

  
After meeting Valerie Tripp – the wonderful author of the books, I knew that even I would enjoy a trip down the American girl memory lane; with this new series of friends and so I began reading to the Twins as soon as they arrived home from school. 

I made a brave mom of twins choice and surprised both V & K with the Ashlyn doll because of her love for dance and fun (personality to suite the girls) and received smiles and kisses of approval.  The girls immediately began to play based on Ashlyn’s personality and interest which included a perfectly fitting tiara and tutu. 

  
Thanks to the new Wellie Wisher friends we will be spending lots of summer days enjoying pretend play with Ashlyn and cannot wait to include her other friends Willa, Camille, Emerson and Kendall! 

  



  

  

   
   

We’re moving up to kindergarten 

Happy Tuesday TwinDollicious readers! It’s been a bitter sweet week full of milestones and great loss. We’ve had to deal with the unfortunate task of saying goodbye to someone so close to us. She was a teacher, mentor, a friend and a God sent angel to have joined our family for 11 years. We say goodbye thankful yet sadly; today, but her memory will live on happily. And one day the girls will ask about her missing place and I will have to figure out the best way to explain. 

I’ve come to believe that the timing of loss or sadness happens when good and new beginnings are set to occur. 

  • Celebrating recitals, new beginnings and Pre K graduations mark important moments which excited the girls to spend time with friends, serve their purpose and make memories.  During this time, I’ve noticed how much V & K have grown. How their personalities continue to grow and how they still have the same sense of style! 
  • Rock star style and Ruffle dresses 

   
 

Our milestone moments have shown love and appreciation for teachers.  T would make for bonded relationships and teamwork if parents and teachers are able to connect and nurture the years of your child’s lives in school. We could not had been more happy with the first year of education and musicianship for the girls and are looking forward to longer lasting fruitful relationships for them. 

The children are our future and there’s only one shot – as for us times 2! 

Teacher appreciation: 

  
   
  

        

Author Visits in school

Some of the best moments in life are created in school. We meet great friends, experience our days as individuals finding our comforts, style and handling daily situations independently. This is why in school Author visit events are the most meaningful to me. When standing in front of 84 prek and kindergarten children it clearly feels like you’re given 45 minutes of their time to make the best impression of how important they are to you // as you are to them. The main focus while sharing stories from the TwinDollicious series is on embracing individuality, confidence and the meaningful important of great relationships with friends and siblings. After every visit; my wishes are that the impact has been made, because they are the future.

Part 1 of a Child’s business plan

‘Twas the night before the first (full) day of school and mommy’s head was filled with worries while TwinDollicious sisters V & K calmly slept in their beds….. This has seriously been the most worrisome time in our little lives; at least for me it has. The girls have been prepped through play, conversation and separation with Music class for months; but when the big day comes we’re all nervous deep down inside.
Some how their morning begins a lot like I had visioned them to be…. Getting ready for school together, doing mirror checks with matching outfits and reminding each other of their teachers and new friends names (at 3 1/2).
With Their 5 day a week busy schedule and extracurricular events I’ve turned to reading a great book during my morning skypes and phone conferences. I’ll fill you all in on the great pointers as I highlight the goodies like EX: The first 4 years of a child’s life molds them to the greater years. The TwinDollicious lifestyle brand and stories would have never been a dream that I could fulfill without the birth of V & K. So as we grow, create new stories, designs, friendships priorities will always be for them to lead happy, sibling loving, successful lifestyles TOGETHER :):)
