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!
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.

100 days of school down in NYC …15 more weeks until Summer Vacation!
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’ve done it again! That is added two more smiley faces to our list of summer fun!
The TwinDollicious pop up mobile has hit the town for our first trunk show and meeting with new friends! We enjoyed watching closely behind while on the road as we excitedly traveled to our first location. The girls used their cameras for some of their own shots. But once there, stories and shopping with friends began with V & K happily chatting and creating memories!
Our next stop is the ENK Childrens club (at NYC ‘s Javits Center) http://www.enkshows.com/childrensclub/ where we will be first time exhibitors in Booth 7627! We would love to meet you and share our new collection so come on by! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment in advance.

Happy Earth day to everyone around the world! We chose to celebrate this day by planting our favorite fruit in the playhouse garden. We used lots of team work and instruction first! Then
6-8 Strawberry seeds
A small planters pot (to fit the Arden area) x’s 2
Dirt pods with soil
5 tablespoons of water
Placed in the sun ….
Which was a necessary instruction otherwise the kiddies await for spontaneous growth :):)
Happy Earth Day xo ~V & K

Happy Tuesday! As the clouds have rolled in to make today a dark, rainy day we’re still feeling bright about our Sunday fun with friends. It was a perfectly bright and sunny day filled with friends, photographs, playtime, reading and a Carousel!!
This perfect place full of outdoor fun is the Brooklyn Bridge Park in Dumbo, (Brooklyn) NY. We chose this perfect location for our Twindollicious photo shoot because it was perfect combination of fun, beauty and excitement for the children. Our spring/summer collection shoot was worked by photographer Brett Martelli of http://www.martelliphotography.com/ and his wonderful crew; along with beautiful models Ligaya Murray, Majesti, Ava Belen, y’Naraly, Jayla Skye, Kennedy and Vittoria D’Anna; all for our feature in City Kids Magazine, issue 5.
The girls began on the historic cobble stone streets of dumbo, moving onto the lawn to read and share Twindollicious stories, leaving the finale shot to Janes Carousel. We can’t wait to see the full shots in the Summer release of BCK City Kids Magazine.
Tuesday is happy day, music day, dancing and dress up day! Let’s take a moment to enjoy a quick laugh or a smile. These two girlies make it easy even if it’s only for a moment :):)
Believe me that quick second of laughter will remain in your thoughts longer than anything else.
