5 Jul

I was invited to the launch of kidpik basics. The collection comes in super-soft materials and yummy colors. Parents can now stock up on all the essentials that a girl needs in multiples at

Click the basics tab at kidpik and discover a trend right, colorful collection of not-so-basic-basics, including tops, tanks, shorts, leggings, pants and more. The site is arranged by color, making it easy to shop and replenish your girl’s favorite wardrobe staples quickly and easily at awesome prices.

Basics are an essential part of a girl’s wardrobe.” says Ezra Dabah, kidpik founder and CEO. “We are thrilled to offer a great selection of basics to complement the kidpik fashion collection.”

Kidpik basics are available for girls in sizes 4-14. Prices range from $6.50 – $17.50. Enjoy free shipping on orders of $50 or more. Orders under $50 ship with a $5 flat rate fee.  

Walking into the showroom was very colorful and kid friendly it reminded me of a box of crayons or a rainbow. There were even colorful bagels to match. My daughter and I love how soft the clothes are and she’s able to play without stiffness and the colors don’t fade. I like to dress her in bright colors when I take her to the park or public places so I can spot her easily. These colors are perfect. 

Everyone was rewarded with 4 pieces of clothing and I took home 2 lace shirts, a lace cardigan and a pencil skirt for my daughter. She loves it and can’t wait to wear. Looking forward to the fall collection subscription boxes. 

Nina kids shoes fall and spring 17″ are amazing. Gladiators, wedges,sandals, baby shoes, and boots are just some of the footwear to keep an eye on. My daughter already picked out a few dozen pair. Check out @kidpik on Instagram

ROWENTA® To Host Designer Challenge on “Project Runway Junior” 

20 Jan

My kids and I anxiously await for Thursdays to arrive so we can watch Project Runway Junior together on Lifetime. The teenagers are amazing designers and are mentored by none other than the incredible Tim Gunn. Every week is exciting and nerve wracking because you await to see the new creations made but you never want to see anyone voted off. 

I’m not a designer but my father did teach me how iron to the point it look like I took my clothes to the dry cleaners for the professionals to do. He showed me how to iron everything from dress shirts to curtains, handkerchiefs and showed me how to crease to perfection. I’ve always enjoyed ironing and will wake up at 4 a.m. to start ironing for me and the kids. Rowenta itons have always been part of my ironing experience because their irons are amazing. The steam force technology is the best. Rowenta even made a Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Limited Edition iron. Now Project Runway Junior gets a limited edition iron as well. The kids on Project Runway Junior got it good. Have you seen this iron? I would love to have this iron. 

Rowenta, the leading manufacturer of high-performance steam irons, garment steamers and steam stations, announces its upcoming appearance on the premiere season of Lifetime’s fashion reality series, “Project Runway Junior.” Hosted by fashion icon and Emmy Award® winner Tim Gunn and supermodel Hannah Davis, “Project Runway Junior” is a direct spin-off of the original series, “Project Runway,” of which Rowenta has been a frequent sponsor. This will be the first time the garment care brand will host a specific challenge​

During Episode: 08 “Make a Statement,” airing on Thursday, January 21, 2016, at 9pm ET/PT, show contestants will use Rowenta’s limited edition “Project Runway” irons to execute innovative, personalized designs and take their creativity to the next level. Rowenta’s “Project Runway” iron combines unparalleled heat and steam with a superior soleplate, creating a better glide for easier use. During the episode, Rowenta’s Marketing Director, Scott Pollard will introduce the challenge to the remaining contestants alongside host, Tim Gunn.  

Rowenta has always been a leader and an innovator in the garment care industry and they are proud to support the budding designers of the fashion world.

As an added bonus for show fans, Rowenta will host a #ProjectRowenta product giveaway on their Facebook ( and Twitter (@RowentaUSA) pages from January 19 – 22, 2016.

French Toast A Uniform For A Kids Life

24 Aug

French Toast America’s leading uniform brand is expanding and they invited me and a few bloggers to a Back-To-School breakfast to unveil their new look of play and weekend wear. I’ve always been a fan of French Toast uniforms. The adjustable waists and power knees in the pants are my absolute favorite. Kids always seem to rip their pants at the knees first so to know these power knees are double protected makes me a happy parent. Adjustable waists I always look for because I buy my kids clothes a size bigger to last longer and having that is good so when it’s time to let a button loose they still can fit the pants or skirt. 

You can check out the new commercial which highlights the Power Knees and 50 Wash Test. In the 30-second spot, acrobatic kids put French Toast to a uniform test by doing the things they do throughout their day: running, jumping and flipping through sporty and sticky situations while wearing French Toast. At the end of the spot, the kids…and their uniforms…look great.  

The commercial highlights the versatility of the brand’s fashions. French Toast is a uniform for a kids life, offering both school uniforms as well as essentials to mix and match for everyday wear. It is durable with Power Knees to withstand even the most energetic kids. It’s comfortable with adjustable waistbands and soft fabrics that allow for easy wear. And most importantly, it will stand up to the 50 Wash Test and lasts throughout the school year and beyond. French Toast has been refreshed and reimagined to better fit every student’s school needs. Check it out here: 

The play and weekend wear is perfect. I can’t wait for 2016 to release these comfortable, fun clothes. Graphic tanks and tees, leggings, raincoats, sweaters, colorful shorts and cool hats. The accessories are great and compliment the outfits. I wish my son could still fit into French Toast but my daughter will love the new collection.  

Breakfast was great. Of course you know we had to have french toast right? Check out French Toast on the web at: and on Twitter: @FrenchToastcom

19 Jul

I joined Kids by Safilo for a children’s vision and eyewear discussion held at their showroom in NY downtown on Fifth Avenue. They were featuring their new eyewear collection designed for children ages 0-8 with a medical-scientific approach and engineered with advanced technologies and materials. We heared from esteemed speakers, Dr. Andrea Thau (President-Elect of the American Ootometric Association), Ken K. Nischal, MD (Director of the Pediatric Ophthalmology at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC), and Bruce Abramson, (Director of Brand Management at Safilo). We learned about the importance of addressing a child’s quality of vision at an early age and the science behind KIDS BY SAFILO. 

I found out my daughter sight wasn’t good when she would walk up to the television just to see what was on the screen. She was about 2 yrs old. I’m glad it was detected early and she has been wearing glasses since then. My son had surgery on his eyes to correct crossing when he was about 6 yrs old. He now has reading glasses when needed. My 19 yr old started wearing glasses in elementary. It is very important to get thorough eye exams. 1 in 4 kids have a vision problem and 80% of learning takes place by way of vision. 

What I love about the new KIDS by SAFILO LINE is the outcome of careful observation of children’s needs, meeting their requirements with solution designed specifically for them. For kids who play, jump and run these glasses are always firm on the nose whatever the situation, no metal parts, no sharp corners or edges and includes shockproof hinges, bio-based, hypoallergenic and non-toxic materials. Colorful glasses with fronts designed to adequately cover their field of vision and ensure proper eyesight. They do not weigh on the nose, don’t hurt behind  the ears, and if worn all day never tiring, resistant to perspiration and dirt. They are super lightweight and weigh less than 18 grams thanks to tuper-light materials. Flexible, stable, sturdy materials to stop the frames from deforming or weakening. Safely 100% made in Italy. 

The colors and decorations are designed to appeal to children. The fronts pieces are always translucent and become almost invisible in styles for young children so that the glasses have a discreet presence on their face. Take a look at the pictures of the cutie pie models I took below and you can see how they look in them. I love all the styles and colors. I wish these were around when my kids were growing up.

I’ve always been a fan of Lacoste so when the opportunity came to attend their Spring/Summer 2015 preview I couldn’t say no. I headed downtown to the west side, NYC for the launch.

From their polo shirts to their tennis skirts and sneakers I always made sure my kids and I owned a piece of Lacoste. The next best thing that they did was introduce Lacoste Underwear. I’m sure every man wants to be comfortable when wearing underwear and Lacoste took care of that. There’s even loungewear and I can’t wait to purchase these for my boys/young men. Day to Night comfort!!!

Amazing colors, patterns and prints for the men. Loungewear very stylish and comfortable. Vibrant colors is where it’s at.

The event was packed and there were models and guys jumping on trampolines and dancing to house music. Food and drinks were on deck and I loved the displays. Everyone took home a sample of the underwear which I gave to my oldest.

There’s so many to choose from like the Pique L.12.12 Single Pack in the boxer brief, trunk and bikini hip brief in cotton with colors like: Jester Red, Rose Brown, Marine Blue and Faded Denim to name a few.

The Motion Single Pack micro mesh, in trunk, boxer brief and brief with the colors: Dazing Blue and White piping, Marine Blue and Sulphur Spring Piping and White and Lacoste Green piping.

You also have the Colours Multi Pack with the vibrant colors: Empire Yellow, Victoria Blue, and patterns like Check Print or combinations. These also come in trunk, boxer brief and brief in a 2-pack. These underwear keeps you cool and dry with a tag free waistband and flexible fit. Also, in the Colours Multi Pack are Tee shirts in a 2-pack in basic colors like grey, black and white in v-neck or round neck.

The Essentials Multi Pack has 3per pack in the boxer brief, knit boxer and mid rise brief. Colors are: Mars Red, Deep Ultramarine and stripes or combination.

These are just some of the underwear. There’s so much more to see.
The loungewear come in great prints like the Baseline Single Hanging in premium woven cotton, which is a single pack lounge pant or sleep short in Croc Print Navy, Croc Print Victoria and Croc Print Lacoste Green.

Service Line Single Hanging lounge pant and sleep short in stretch cotton, available in single packs also with great patterns like Long Check Navy, Grid Green and Narrow Slate Pin Blue Chambray.

I know my boys will be very happy when this collection launches. I might even get myself some of the lounge pants. Super comfy!! Definitely stocking up in the tee shirts for myself and my boys as well.

Sizes available will come in S-XXL.

@OfficialNYDJ Spring 2015 Collection

20 Jan

I took a stroll to The London Hotel NYC on my way up to the Penthouse to preview NYDJ Spring 2015 Collection. They were introducing their City/Sport and New Sportswear Collections.

Slim fitting denim, dresses and tops are what I need more of in my closet.
When I stepped inside I was blown away with racks full of denim in pastel colors, jeans with zippers, capris and shorts in amazing prints and soft materials. Slimming tops with hidden compression tanks inside. I was loving it all and spring can’t get here fast enough. I also got to check out the sportswear collection which consisted of floral hoodies, zippered track jackets in cute prints, sportswear that I can go from the gym to shopping or just a day out in the city running errands. Loved the color block jackets and leggings. My favorite were the jackets with thumb holes and shirts with breathable air pockets under the arms.

Long- time GUESS girl, Gigi Hadid, will be returning as the face of the Spring 2015 GUESS advertising campaign. In a departure from the typical array of gorgeous GUESS models, Gigi was shot solo for the campaign allowing the collection and her natural beauty to be the star.

Directed by Paul Marciano, CEO and Chief Creative Officer for GUESS?, Inc., and shot by photographer, David Bellemere, the campaign features an assortment of images shot against a picture perfect backdrop of a private sunny beach in Malibu, California. Gigi is shown embracing her femininity and sensuality while embodying the care-free spirit of the Spring collection. The strong use of natural light allows the sun to reflect upon Gigi’s radiant skin and tousled beach wave hair creating strong feelings of warmth and seduction. The crystal clear ocean and playful poses against the windswept sand enhance the sensual mood creating an alluring collection of photographs.

“Going on 15 years as a Guess Girl, this may be my favorite campaign yet. The collection is so effortless to wear, and fits perfectly in any summer environment. I couldn’t think of a better place to shoot the campaign then where we did – on the beaches of my hometown in Malibu! So fitting.” – Gigi Hadid
