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.

“Summer Camp Here we come!” By Twindollicious author Natasha D’Anna
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 .

Our close to home Spring break has Coe to an end but never with a dull ending. We saved the best part of the week long venture for last.
The little artists at heart were due for a trip to some of NY’s great museums.
Guggenheim was number one on the list followed by Cooper Hewitt.
By the likes of V& K the Guggenheim’s architectural sound made for great conversation amongst the girls. However the best part may have been visiting the gift shop where they scored a Kandinsky coloring book and a post card for their favorite art teacher.
While at Cooper Hewitt ther was an abundance of interactive exhibits for them to see, yet the most exciting part was scanning in all of the exhibit codes with the magic pen. There’s this cool pen shaped marker that is given to each visitor, which allows you to scan in your exhibits of interest then laterite urn to the website with your code to retrieve all exhibit information.
Kennedy preferred to spend the entire time in the Pixar exhibit area while her Vittoria enjoyed the interactive design table used with stylus pen as well.
Soon hunger set in and as I said before Kennedy would have stayed in Pixar the entire time yet we convinced her that a night at the museum may not be fun….. To be continued for our close to home Spring break happy little innovators.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! It has truly been a season of giving, and if you’re reading this Id like for you to think of all of the things you may have given to others …. It counts. Food drives, coat drives, toy drives and sending gifts to loved ones ALL count as a gift of giving when it’s from the heart.
We have been spending our time doing all of the above as well as taking time to enjoy family and friends! Our holiday goodies and dress selections http://www.twindollicious.com/shop have kept us in Santa shipping mode but a quick trip out to enjoy this awesome NY weather helps with all the reason to believe in miracles. (This weather IS quite miraculous!!)
We have our last event of the year on December 19th at the Country Mouse boutique located at 570 Forest Avenue, Staten Island NY starting at 11:00 am and we will continue to give surprises to all of the kiddies who attend. There’s nothing more rewarding than to see the smiles of the child receiving as well as the child that is giving.

The TwinDollicious team was honored to be apart of a celebration for artists while bringing awareness to the Cerebral Palsy foundation. The mobile Pop up shop found a cozy spot on the grounds of Flagship by the Staten Island ferry (FYI: stay tuned or all of the future projects and Events happening in that NY area) .
The Harvest Festival was all things festivals are made of, yummy food, family, friends, and exclusive one of a kind products that become keepsakes because it reminds you of that time you went to a festival during the fall harvest season and met awesome people including the artist that designed something that you fell in love with.
Hope you’re all enjoying your harvest time.
