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

Well, we survived a Presidents’ Day week with 80% staycationing (new word)! This February has flown by so fast that we couldn’t clearly plan a family vacation, so we decided to stay local to work a bit and have fun while doing so.
V & K enjoyed a movie premiere screening of Rock Dog; a must see movie about one of our favorite things MUSIC, and life of an artist. If it’s exposure to freedom of art, creation and a reason to think outside of the box we’re in!
If you haven’t been to the toy fair at NYC Javits Center yet you must check it out! There are so many ideas for learning, gifts and teaching lessons on encouraging entrepreneurship to children with one visit. It usually runs during the February season of NY Fashion. The girls enjoyed some goodies and decided to coordinate a full video on them. So much fun!

We saved our last great adventure of this staycation for our friends meet at Liberty Science center. We had the privilege of attending the new exhibit of Myth Busters. These girls love tech and science with a splash of fashion. As you can see here our Mom trends friends /event in style with some buddies. http://www.lsc.org
Visit Our favorite scientific corners such as the Myth Busters, infinity climber, table top chaos and how fast can you change into a super hero… you’ll love it!
We’re hosting a fun giveaway of 4 tickets to check out all of the amazing exhibits Liberty science center has to offer.
To Enter: answer this twin myth (fact) correctly…. which twin is baby A in utero? The first to answer correctly wins!
100 days of school down in NYC …15 more weeks until Summer Vacation!
Being a twin means many things…like having a best friend forever, having someone to finish your sentences, having someone read your mind (hey you never know) even pretend to be you; if you’re identical …but the most perks of being a boy/boy or girl/girl twin is that you can enjoy each others fashions when you share the same style.
V&K continue to enjoy the same styles as well as dressing alike. Though this Halloween may be a bit complicated; stay tuned for that blog post 🙂
We recently had the opportunity to work with creative photographers as well as a Kidz fashion magazine and editors to share some of our favorite same and not quite the same Twindollicious styles.

HAPPY NATIONAL TWINSDAY!
Many of our twin friends are headed to Twinsburg, Ohio this weekend for the national twins fest. We will be missing this year, due to the new bundle of joy but can’t wait to introduce him to all of the fun next year.
I’ve added a link to read an article I’ve written for Multiplicity magazine regarding when is the right time to let your twins or children do the work themselves. (Click & Comment…would love to hear your thoughts)
TwinDolls and friends in our favorite summer collection
Here’s a fun summer read and interesting topic I had the pleasure of working on see link:
we are a growing family! Not only have we added on to our TwinDollicious, but our little family of 4 felt the need to become 5 or 6.
This is V & K proudly announcing that they will soon know if they’re having a brother or sister. Which may be simple for 5 yer old twins seem a bit of a mess for mommy(who planned the reveal) and daddy who can’t figure it out.
A part of me is ecstatic to use a baby wrap, use a singleton stroller and fit through door ….what’s the new lightweight trend anyway?
while the other cannot wait until this first trimester is over! We’ll be sharing more as we grow!!
After a busy holiday season of Christmas, family holidays, birthdays a much needed vacation to end of the year right was on the agenda…. Highly Recommend!!
If a list of must do’s to prepare for a fresh new year was in demand,the topper of the list would be o clear your agenda book and plan a vacation or getaway.
This year our family and team took a fun getaway cruise to warmer climates, fresh air with light luggage and clear minds. Decembers events and agendas were all clear and must do’s were placed into starting fresh for 2016 while the important things were tackled and complete just before heading out the door. Children in tow as ALWAYs ( in my opinion they make the vacay even more memorable). Must do’s are always going to be there…..it can wait!
We spent days in the Caribbean and celebrating 2016 with lots of Birthday cakes and singing to V&K as usual.
Hope everyone’s having a great start to this sweet 16!
Remember to think positive while living with love, inspiration and motivation :):)
We have come to know so many beautiful, smart and talented little Dolly’s that I can only see fit to share their talents by Spotlighting them here on the blog. We will be featuring some of our runway models and wonderful customers as our “Doll Face” feature of the week. Where would we be without you!
