Comfort In Kids Lee Jeans 

26 Aug

5 Star Apparel Showroom in Manhattan is filled with kids clothing from different name brands. It’s like walking into a huge dream walk in closet with clothes at your service. I met with Brianne Tursi Manz (Stroller In The City) for a blogger event. 

Once there I took a look at what all the brands had to offer. Lee Jeans stretch jeans with soft jogging material and a drawstring  were the jeans I knew my daughter would like. My rule is always comfort first. 

Kids grow so fast so I’m always thinking ahead when buying clothes. My daughter loves dressing herself and putting outfits together.

When my daughter tried on her Lee Jeans she was able to bend, run, do a few cartwheels and just enjoy her Lee Jeans and style it with the Arizona Printed Peplum Cami (JC Penney) and her favorite glitter slip ons from (KidPik). 

Disclosure: Thank you Brianne and 5 Star Apparel for the jeans. Opinions are our own 100% as always. 

Extra Money In Your Pockets With #GrouponCoupons #ad  

25 Aug

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

I’ve been clipping coupons for years and there’s been times when I went shopping and forgot my coupons or they ripped accidentally (that happened recently) or they expired (the worst). Was there a easier way to carry coupons with me without ever forgetting them? 

When Groupon Coupons was introduced I was all over their site. I couldn’t believe all the coupons and promo codes from brands I regularly shop at. Coupons available when I need it and the best part on my phone. No losing, forgetting or accidentally ripping in my bag. Groupon Coupons goes wherever I go. 

I love the money I save at restaurants and my favorite retail shops like: 


Foot Locker



Bed Bath & Beyond


Best Buy

Lands End


Olive Garden

Panera Bread

I’ve been taking advantage of the awesome promo codes for back to school. Foot Locker has $20 off when you spend $120. My son can’t fit kid sneakers so his sneakers are in the men’s section. This coupon will come in handy. 

Land’s End has 25% off which is great for uniforms for my kids and free shipping when you spend $50. 

LL Bean has up to 50% off and free shipping. Their backpacks are great, very sturdy and are on sale.

I’ve even gotten a mani/pedi for $20. Yes!!

I also downloaded the Groupon App on my phone. Don’t miss out on all the savings available 24 hours a day.

The Moms Back To School Bash Recap #TheMomsBTS

24 Aug

The Moms held their Back To School Bash at 100 Barclay Street. They also had their live Sirius XM Stars Show and I was happy to be a part of it on the 25th floor with beautiful views. This is my second time on their show. We talked about anxiety, nutrition, sleep, fashion and first day of schools cheers or not. The Moms were also celebrating being on the August cover of New York Family Magazine. Have you seen the cover? Get your copy quickly. 

The Back To School Bash was held in the lobby of 100 Barclay. Sponsors included Fruit Of The Loom, Subway, Chobani and Kidbox. 

We are fans of Subway and Chobani. Back to school lunches will be healthy with these two. There are so many varieties to choose and I love that my kids eat healthy. Well some of the time. As long as they get their veggies and fruit I’m happy. Have you seen the Siracha Mango Chobani? Love Greek yogurt. We love Chobani Kids and Adult products. 

Fruit Of The Loom has been a favorite of mine for so long now my kids use them. From t-shirts to underwear Fruit Of The Loom knows exactly what parents and kids need. Comfortable and great quality which never shrinks or stretches out of shape. I love the new Breathable underwear for women. With the hot, muggy weather we’ve been having I can honestly say these underwear has kept me dry. I am going to stock up on these. From boy shorts to bikinis Fruit Of The Loom got you covered. I also love the bonus packs where you get three free items. Check out their web page:

Kidbox is  a box full of stylish pieces from well-loved brands, selected just for your special kid. Whenever you keep the whole box, they will commit a donation of new clothes to children in needy families. 

We had a blast and want to congratulate The Moms in all their success. Thank you for always including my family in your fab events.

Styling My Daughter With Vigoss Jeans 

18 Aug

I attended a blogger event with Stroller In The City ( Brianne Tursi Manz) at the 5 Star Apparel Showroom and was excited to see the latest in kids clothing and the hard work and sweat that goes into giving kids the best quality in name brand fashion.

Not only do Vigoss Jeans look great they are skinny stretch jeans. She paired her jeans with a lace high neck woven top  from Arizona (JC Penney) and glitter slip ons from (KidPik).

As much as she wants to wear her Vigoss Jeans to school they will be her go to jeans on her off days from school since she wears a uniform. She loves the fit and style and loved posing for pictures.

JCPenney’s Partnership With Y’s Academic Achievement Initiative & Back To School Fashion

10 Aug

Whether it’s moving into a dorm for the first time, or getting ready for the first day of high school, one thing that students will plan extensively this fall is their “first day look.” JCPenney offers a wide assortment of affordable, fashion finds, from brands like Arizona, that are perfect for completing the look, and expressing style individuality, this new school year. 

I fell in love with the bedding as I love to start the school year off with new bedding for the kids. The print is fun and colorful on the comforter and sheets and they are very soft. The kids love the back pillows. The furniture flair cover was used on their beds but can be used on a small couch in your dorm room or apartment. 

I might not be going back to school but I can dress like it with a mom fashionista twist. Love the Arizona jeans and cute tops. They are so comfortable and affordable. I love the outfits I received. 

Along with great fashions this back-to-school season, JCPenney is expanding its 20-year partnership with the Y to include an exciting way for customers to give back. For each pair of Arizona jeans sold from July 15th to September 2nd, JCPenney will be donating $1 to support the Y’s academic achievement programs up to $250,000.  

The partnership will support the Y’s Academic Achievement Initiative, which aims to support academically at-risk students through evidence-based, high-quality summer learning loss prevention and afterschool programs.
“With jeans serving as a key back-to-school fashion staple, Arizona’s great fitting, affordable denim makes it the ideal brand to leverage our support of the Y this season. By simply purchasing a pair of stylish Arizona jeans, moms will not only be sending their kids back-to-school with confidence, but also helping fellow moms across the country set their kids up for success this school year.”
JCPenney will also be assisting the Y this back-to-school season with a community event at the Hollywood YMCA in Los Angeles. The event will include backpack giveaways, free haircuts from jcp salon, mini-makeovers from Sephora inside JCPenney for moms and teens, vision screenings from JCPenney Optical, photos from JCPenney Portraits and Arizona jean fittings as well as giveaways, music, food and more.

Stay tuned for a JCPenney $25 gift card giveaway!!!

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.

Momtrends 6th Annual Travel Event 

25 Apr

Momtrends held their 6th Annual Travel Trends Event at Ivivva in Union Square. This year I definitely want to explore and travel even if it’s local I appreciate all the tips and cool trends I can get. As I walked in Ivivva with my kids I was given a passport to use set each table as I talked to brands and get a stamp in my book as if I’m traveling. My daughter quickly ran to the kids table with her friends and decorated her Seedling bag and received goodies. Seedling creates uniquely innovative products that encourages families to build, imagine and play together. Check them out here: 

 Ebags was the first table my son and I talked to. The colors on the bags drew me in. The backpacks and luggage are just what I need for my cruise. I also adore the packing cubes for my shoes and other items. The bags have a lifetime guarantee which is a big plus in my book. Ebags is the world’s leading online retailer of bags and travel accessories. I was happy to receive a packing cube in my gift bag. It’s so lightweight but holds just what I need. Head to now.  

 You can’t have a travel event without Hershey’s chocolate being present. Not only was the largest Hershey’s chocolate bar in our gift bags there was also a chocolate fountain pouring chocolate on fruit, pretzels or marshmallows. My kids enjoyed that station. Experience the new Chocolate Making Tour at Hershey’s Chocolate World Attraction this summer. Check the website for more info: 

 Cool Gear has awesome BPA free products for on the go. In our gift bags we received the cutest travel tubes  that can hold anything like lotion, shampoo, sunscreen, etc.. Love the bright colors and the different sizes. Website for more info: and @coolgearinc on Twitter 

 Igloo Coolers always make t easy for me to choose what I need for my parties, picnics, bbq’s and road trips. Their coolers, totes and buckets keep my drinks and food cool and happy. I’m still stalking the Party Bar that lights up with LED lights when it’s dark out and hold a ton of drinks. I also love the half gallon sport jug which I have. Go to @igloocoolers on Instagram for the latest.  

 Talbots hooked the Momtrends ladies up with gorgeous outfits. They looked spring like as if they were ready to cruise and dance the night away . I loved them all. Very classic. See the latest styles at and @talbotsofficial on Twitter 

 Ivivva where the event was held is inspired by active girls. If you need athletic wear for your daughter like leggings, leotards, jackets and accessories this is the place to get it. Nicole Feliciano and Sherri Schubert from Momtrends introduced their daughters who modeled a few of the clothes from Ivivva and also showed us how easy these pieces can be packed in their backpacks without taking up any room for a week away from easy and no ironing required. They all did an amazing job. Follow @ivivva on Twitter for more info.  

 Go Picnic nutritious ready to eat meals were a hit with the kids and adults. My daughter took some to school for her lunch. There’s a variety to choose from like salami, turkey, hummus, sunbutter and turkey pepperoni to name a few. There’s also Go a Picnic Snacks and Go Picnic Breakfast. Gluten free, vegetarian and kosher. Buy online or in your local grocery store. and @GoPicnic on Twitter 

 I’ve not a fan of tap water but I am a big fan of water that has an alkaline 9.5 pH or higher. I’ve only found a few and I’m proud to discover Essentia Water. This water is an electrolyte enhanced water with the alkaline of 9.5 pH. I’ve always been a walker and my Fitbit keeps track of my steps so I’ve been doing great with walking 10,000 or more steps every time I go out. Essentia Water will be by my side to keep me hydrated. @EssentiaWater on Instagram @EssentiapHwater on Twitter and website.  

 I’d like to thank Momtrends for another fun event. My kids and I enjoyed spending the evening with you and all the brands and taking home great tips for travel and a great gift bag.

My Mother’s Day Wish List from BJ’s Wholesale Club #spon #shoptheclub

21 Apr

Is it too early to be talking about my wish list for Mother’s Day? I think not!! I don’t ask for much when it comes to Mother’s Day. While some want quiet time alone or to go out for Brunch or Dinner I just want to be around my family. I love presents and those I Love You’s no matter what day is it. I also enjoy buying myself gifts. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. 

I love the fact that my family and friends can shop for my presents in one place ((BJ’s Wholesale Club) and get everything on my wish list. Wish lists are made instead of reminding a person over and over what I would like. I just put these lists randomly throughout the house or as a text/ email for them to see. 

May 8th will be here before you know it. Even though I tell my children it’s the thought that counts and you can spend whatever you choose and I also accept homemade cards and gifts I love showing them how to use coupons and get the best price for their money. 

Now that BJ’s opened a new store in Riverdale we’ve been quite a bit now and my daughter loves to observe what goes  in  my shopping cart then look through the coupon book that BJ’s send to my house and the coupons in store to match and rip out because she knows we’re saving a lot by using them. She also looks through my wallet for more coupons that I bring with me as well. This is another reason I love shopping at BJ’s. Coupons are my friend. 

This year I want a gift basket filled with goodies. These gifts can be purchased online or in store. I’ll keep it simple. 

1. Beauty- Crest 3D white advanced vivid white strips $39.99 (Mama have to keep her pearly whites for all the pictures I will be in)

2.  Drinks- $10 Starbucks Gift Card 3-pk for $28.99 ( Got to have Iced Coffee)

3. Over the counter-Claritin 10mg allergy tablets 90 tablets $35.99 ( I want to be prepared so I will take in advance so I’m not suffering)

4. Food- $100 Cheesecake Factory Gift card for &94.99 (I don’t expect the kids to get this so I would  give myself this this gift)

5. Entertainment- Regal Entertainment Group Premiere Movie Ticket 2-pack $19.99 giftcard (Love movies) 

6. Kitchen/Houseware- NewAir 12-bottle thermoelectric wine cooler $159.99 (Another gift to myself)

7. Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion. 2 pack/18 ounce & 2.5 ounce travel size $14.99 (After a rough winter I need my skin to be refreshed and moisturized) 

8. Gillette Venus Luscious Lilies Shave Gel Prep 3/Pack for $6.49 (shaving is a must) Love smooth skin. 

9. Berkley Jensen Moisture Infusing Shampoo and Conditioner $6.49 each for 40 ounce (to make me feel renewed and rehydrated)

10. Random gift from the heart. 

I took my son with me to BJ’s to see what Mother’s Day gifts he would pick out for me and I was happy to see that he went straight for the things I mentioned above. He knows his mama. 

That concludes my wish list. Convenient, affordable, simple one -stop shopping.
