Its time for a NY Baby Show Giveaway

The 2017 New York Baby Show, on May 20 & 21 at Pier 94 will once again be the largest show for new and expectant parents in the country. Now in its 7th year, no other event provides a better experience for thousands of expectant and new families from New York and neighboring counties, seeking a family-friendly jamboree of top brands, great speakers and seminars, big giveaways, and lots of learning, support, bonding, and fun as you make your way into parenthood.

Our experience at last years event was a success.  We attended with a goal ..to find a travel system for one baby this time! I happily tested a few high end popular brand carriages and fell in love with the Maxi cosi Adorra travel system(pictured below).  Our little bundle Bash enjoys his rides in his carriage and this mom here enjoys the light weight comfort of the detachable pieces….and the gorgeous shade of gray.

 We are giving away tickets for you and your family to experience the show. 

Just click this link below and happy baby show….

Nursery for Boys

Living in a Dolls world for the last 5 years lead me to feeling like there wasn’t any hope in style in a boys life…especially when decorating a room.  Instead of hiring a designer or just going with the verrrry boy themed options in stores; I chose a style that was created by his name.  

Kenneth Sebastian aka BASH is destined to be a classy cowboy in mama’s eyes. Hey it helped! 

With the theme of bash’s nursery coming from his name as a start; next step was incorporating color.  Blues, grays and of course neutrals are always safe for your home.  As a matter of fact neutrals were used in V & K’s nursery 5 years ago; which lead to the reuse of their crib and crib and bumper set being used for their younger brother.  When designing his nursery a sisters touch was needed; so the girls used scooting paper of their own to add art work and color….which became The highlight of the nursery.

Here’s our boy nursery and the most scrumptious part is that baby!!

3 ways to embrace the beautiful distractionsย 

What are distractions? Those things or situations that occur which keep us from completing our to do list. Or how about that life long plan you have TO TRY something new, start a new journey or take a trip that seems to be stopped by someone special or a job. 

Can it be that We never take the time to acknowledge that these slight interruptions are in fact distractions.  As an adult perhaps we forget but I’m pretty sure children all a cross the world are reminded when gazing offi n class that they’re being distracted….( It’s a number 1 teacher’s favorite). Any how with sticking to the topic; I’d like to share 3 lessons I’ve learned to help me understand and handle deadlines and  surprise happening or behaviors in order to get the job done. 

We recently shared our grandest addition which will arrive this summer. It hit me with such shock in the middle of a busy work schedule which included appearances, deadlines and freelance work with others, yet took me back to a place that I was in 6 years ago. A place where doubt had set in on the chance of ever having children and then V&K were here! BUT remember the dying desperation, asking and prayin… Those days and nights of long talks were not falling on deaf ears. The response was given yet when lease expected.  

1. That number one rule to remember what you have asked for over and over again will receive a response; and usually after you’ve shown and proven that you can handle it. (Note: maybe a time when you’re overwhelmed).

2. Creating a deadline for yourself regarding work for others and yourselves is key. BUT the topper is allowing yourself enough time with your tasks that in between your work for others you can take a breather to visit your project. This allows you to remember your creative goals as well. 

3. Take an organizational brake to manage your thoughts and connect with your team. It can be a partner, mentor, spouse or whom ever provides tha creative energy that allows you to help each other grow. 

I’d like to share some of the creative outlets we’ve gained by following rule number 1. This barn yard entry way to embrace the upcoming nursery. 

   
 
Along with a collaborative shoot to embrace our TwinDollicious message of sibling love with new Spring/Summer release design of double the hearts.  Perhaps with an infant design surprise.

   
   
Remember to take minute to think when hit with those small signs of distractions (ex:the black cat crossing)
