Had a BASH at BBNYC

This year marks the first bbnyc Blogger bash NYC for Bash! It was quite different having a singleton on arm to mingle,  meet new brands and learn all about the fun new products happening at sweet suite 17 but at the same time he was the perfect little personality to have accompany me. 

We visited Zulily’s photo shoot booth; which included bubbles and fun photographers. http://www.zulily.com/ I love how they were able to be apart of suite sweet for everyone. 


Now….. throughout this huge area at the piers we scope out some of our favorite things that I’d like to share. 

1. ✨Simplay3 the brand that started tikes; ride alongs , durable amazing products have now started the next stage of baby gear. We are in love with everything featured at BBNYC (especially the helmet ride along)  and know that there are more things to come. ✨ http://www.simplay3.com/


2. We had to visit V & K’s favorite snack pops booth http://www.yumearth.com/ we know that all sugar can be created equal but yum earths pops get a pass especially when they’re incorporating other nutritious snacks for your kiddies.

3. http://www.bixbee.com/ Was listed as one of the top choices to visit for bags and lunch boxes. I was so happy that we were able to visit them and learn more about their mission.  Backpacks that embrace the imagination and give back. 


4. http://www.kangaroomfg.com/ Was loaded with fun reps in butterfly floaters and emoji madness! We loved them so much we had to share with an unboxing clip. 

5. Saving the best for last because as a mom of 3 you never know when you’re going to have to make your own anything or mend something quickly.  This is where the 3doodler comes in. Three D Perfection! 

We will be sharing more fun things that sweet suite had to offer! So much 2 share

Back to school with Momtrendsschool

We are enjoying our summer so much we thought why not add a little joy to going back to school by celebrating and prepping during the summer. The girls and I attended mom trends back 2 school event organized to give back to children in need of supplies to prepare for their school year. 

We enjoyed the afternoon celebrating momtrends milestones, testing our mama challenges and learning about all of the great brands new products, whom we’re giving back as well.


While V & K were chosen to model beautiful new pieces by Orchestra http://www.shop-orchestra.com/ and backpacks by m.shop.nordstrom.com/sr/twelvelittle which are perfect for the in between weather and style at the start of the school year.

 Some of the brands are lifesavers for our busy lives. Such as http://www.namebubbles.com/ … I am enjoying my own personal labeled thermos while I know it may be hard for the girls at times and even hard for me to organize things that are the same without labels. We’ll name bubbles to the rescue it is!


We couldn’t attend such an awesome event without thinking about Bash…. so I enjoyed learning more about the new foods and perfect packaging of Nosh bit.ly/2tN2G7a baby munchables and the yummiest brioche by http://www.ozerybakery.com 

Last but not least they little models partied away with sweet treats from Raisels : The anywhere Anytime snack!

Kid tested and mommy approved!

Summer weekend travels

Slow down summer!  Though it has been 3 plus weeks since school ended, just the thought of packing away our summer styles and prepping for the cold scares the hee bee gee bees out of me. 

We’ve been taking it as slow as we can between summer camp and our weekend getaways we are soaking up all of the sun we can to fulfill our vitamin D needs. 

With 3 kids in tow we planned to visit some historical sites within driving distance. An 8-10 hour drive may sound like much but we’ve survived 16; now that’s serious. We chose Saratoga/Lake George as our first weekend getaway. We usually visit Martha’sVineyard  but decided to go with a group of our family members and learn about upstate NY. The kids couldn’t get enough of the horses at Bennington Farms, Martha’s Creme for ice cream, Congress park’s Carousel, of course the lake and did I mention the ice cream 🍦. 

As if that adventure wasnt enough we were brave enough to do it again….and many more times to come of course. But, traveling down south to VA to visit family was both nostalgic and educational once again. 

We stopped at chincoteague beach where the wild horses run and the famous story of misty originated.  The kiddies enjoyed one beautiful horse after another with an added touch of beach of course. We enjoyed our stay at a quaint Refuge Inn…. super kid friendly; just what we like!

Summer Days

Summer days are meant to be spent at one of the best places on earth… the beach. 

We love going to the beach to 

-collect seashells 

– talk about mermaid landing rocks 

– build Sand castles 

– read books 

We hope your Independence Day festivities include some time by the sea

What are some of the things that you like to do on the beach? 

Teaming up with AlphaKey

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.

NYFW behind the scenes with V and K

New York fashion week may be behind us but we’re just getting started to plan lots of exciting things for V & K’s life on the runway. 

We had the honor of attending shows for Rookie USA kids by haddad bros for make a wish foundation. While there we were lucky enough to attend adult runway stages and walk on them after the seasoned professional models of top designers.  Exciting is beyond how the girls felt when Rae (runway trainer to the models) and Laurie of  LDJdesigns (production co for fabulous exclusive runway shows) invited them for a behind the scenes moment. 

From one professional runway trainer to a mom’s ears … V & K are naturals and are ready for some real runway events… so here they come; one step at a time, with smiles.
