ROAD TRIP TO PHILLY FOR THE #MomMixer EVENT

3 May

On Saturday April 26th, a couple of my besties and I took a road trip to Philly for the Mom Mixer Event hosted by Whitney Wingerd & Colleen Padilla. It was held at the Four Seasons hotel. We were scheduled for the 12- 2 p.m. session. We had a great time traveling, seeing the sights, and girl talk. I checked the weather before we left so I knew Philly weather was going to be nice in the 70’s. I was excited to talk to the brands who were in attendance.

CVS had loads of goodies for everyone to enjoy like their famous chocolate chip cookies, juices, protein bars, trail mix, dried fruit, chili lime almonds, and plenty more snacks from their Gold Emblem line. CVS has everything I need and I am glad I am within walking distance from my house.

Kids headquarters came through with brands from Under Armour clothing for infants and kids. I scored shorts, and a iron man t-shirt for my daughter, and onesies for my cousin. My whole family loves Under Armour. Tommy Hilfiger was also another brand featured at their table.

Mc D Philly (McDonald’s) restaurant were handing out hot coffee and coupons for free meals. I couldn’t wait to get a cup of their McCafe coffee.

Hershey Park told us about the new rides coming this year like the Cocoa Cruiser (roller coaster), Tea Cups, and the Sweet Swing. My family and I can’t wait to go and try these new rides. I haven’t been to Hershey Park in years, and my kids keep asking to go so this has to be the year. There also was a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup mascot taking pictures with attendees. We tried to take a bite out of it. Lol.

Charm It is the original, detachable charm brand for girls ages 5-14. I love the necklace with all the charms and bracelets. My daughter will want to collect all of them. But I know she will especially want anything ballerina, princess, and cupcakes. She can’t wait to start her collection. Charm It is having a contest where your little one can Design-A-Charm. Check it out on Twitter @Charm_It Hurry ends May 21st.

Academy of Natural Sciences had a table with dinosaur bones, and teeth. My kids would have loved to have seen it. I definitely want to bring them back to explore. They gave us free passes so another road trip with the kids is a must.

The 3 Day (Susan G Komen) came out to encourage everyone to get involved and walk for breast cancer in Philly. I told the girls we need to do this. Another road trip but for a good cause. I want to show support and wear pink and represent. We can go as Blogger Walkers.

Visionworks provided eye exams and showed us their Eco friendly line of glasses. They also gave us a free pair of sunglasses to take home. They have over 620 optical retail stores in 40 states. I am due for new reading glasses and can’t wait to connect with them. Check out their website vision works.com

Stella & Dot showed us beautiful jewelry, bags, clutches, and scarves in bright colors, and a variety of prints. I wanted the whole collection. My friend won a tote bag.

You know we couldn’t go to Philly without getting Geno’s delicious cheesesteaks. We also had to take pictures like tourists.

I went to Philly last year with hubby and the kids for another event and we had a great time. I think Philly will be a yearly thing from now on.

The gift bags were fabo and I’d like to thank Colleen and Whitney for the invite. I had a great time!!
