Keeping It Trendy, Crafty and Spooky with @Momtrends #MTNightOut #AD

30 Oct

Whenever Momtrends throws their Moms Night Out events I already know I’m in for a great night with friends and amazing brands. This year the event was held at 225 Liberty Street. I love that area which is full of shops, restaurants and great views of the water.

As I walked in the first station I approached I was able to create my own perfume courtesy of Parents and Parents Latina. There were so many yummy flavors to choose from. I made mine with Jasmine, Bitter Orange and Grapefruit to name a few. Smells amazing and I’ve gotten lots of compliments.

The next station was Baby Dove. I’ve been using Dove products for decades and if you smell the Baby Dove Tip to Toe wash you’ll want to wash up in it too. Sorry babies, mommy might keep this one for herself. Lol.

Nurture the microbiome your baby was born with. Baby Dove is uniquely made with prebiotic moisture and 100% skin-natural nutrients to gently nourish your baby’s delicate microbiome.

I made a baby caddy/bath tote at this station with Baby Dove Wash, baby toys, blankets and sponge. I decorated the outside of the caddy as well. Great creation to give as a gift. Click this link for more info:

Station number three had me making snow globes courtesy of Clorox. I can’t get enough of Clorox and Clorox Disinfecting Wipes which makes everything so easy. If you know me and the germaphobe that I am Clorox is a must in my house. Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes conveniently tackle life’s messes – from spilled glitter glue to finger paint – while removing germs, bacteria and countless other nasties you may find lurking in your home. Clorox Disinfecting Wipes provide a convenient and effective way to tackle life’s messes while killing 99.9% of germs.

I didn’t know how easy it was to make a snow globe. I kept it simple and added a bunny, butterfly, mushrooms, an I ❤️NY Apple and Empire State Building inside of mine. It’s so cute. Click on this link: Clorox.com/products/clorox-disinfecting-wipes Also hear to @Clorox on Instagram.

After stuffing my face with Sushi, Spring Rolls, Chicken Tenders, Veggies, Dessert and Drinks I headed to the last station.

Station number four taught me how to make spooky snacks/treats courtesy of Parents and Parents Latina. I’ve always loved Parents Magazine so I was excited they were in attendance and even more excited to make these easy, fun snacks to take back home and show my kids how simple it is. I enjoyed making the Spider. I used a chocolate donut, pretzel sticks for the legs, sprinkles and stuck on eyes. The Monster Skewers was also fun to make. Just use skewers, marshmallows, cantaloupe, kiwi, put peanut butter so the eyes can stick to the marshmallow and an edible ink pen to draw the face.

Parents Magazine have so many projects, DIY, recipes and o much more. Grab your copy or even better a subscription. @Parents is on Instagram.

I’ve been attending Momtrends events for such a long time and I am very grateful and thankful to have these wonderful ladies on my side. They’ve open us so many doors for my family and I and that makes them Rockstars!! Check out @Momtrends on Instagram.

Going Down Memory Lane with Google Photos New Features #GooglePhotos #Google

23 Sep

I recently attended a Google Photos event and should have known better for not having the Google Photos app in my phone. I felt like I was living in the Bedrock days. What was I thinking? Now that I was informed how easy and important it was to use this app I was blown away even more about all the new features that recently rolled out.

  • Memories: A digital version of a walk down memory lane of your private photos – rolled out on Android and iOS.

  • Canvas prints: Now, you can decorate your home with your favorite memories with canvas prints from Google Photos —you can order canvas prints from Google Photos in the U.S., and they’ll be delivered straight to your home. Canvas prints start at $19.99 and come in three different sizes, 8×8, 11×14, and 16×20.

  • Photo prints: You can order 4×6 photo prints directly from Google Photos and pick them up same day at CVS Pharmacy or Walmart, at over 11,000 locations with print centers across the U.S.

Now when you feel nostalgic, you can search your photos by the text in them, for example, for home cooking you can just search “carrot cake” and find your mom’s recipe right away. 

Do you know how many times I wish I could just go to my 30,000 pics and search by word to find a certain picture. Now I can. Amazing!!! I tried it and it works.

  • In the coming months, it’ll be even easier to send photos directly to your friends or family within Google Photos. Photos will now be added to an ongoing, private conversation so there’s one place to find the photos you’ve shared with each other and keep the conversation going.

With all of these new features, you can relive your best memories, share them with the people that matter, and get them off of your phone and into your home.

I also can’t wait to test out my Google Nest Hub to share photos and connect with family as well.

#PrettyWomanTheMusical Review

15 Jun

Pretty Woman The Musical on Broadway. What can I say? I’m pretty sure you’ve seen the original movie like I have. Hubby and I did a date night and we absolutely loved it. The vocals on the leads were incredible. Andy Karl had that rockstar voice and Samantha Barks had some soulful pipes on her. We loved everyone’s vocals. My hands hurt from clapping so much. Each scene had me wanting more and remembering the movie. The opera scene was beautiful.

Tommy Bracco the bellhop did his thing dancing and making us laugh. The hotel manager Eric Anderson played plenty of characters and sung his ass off. Orfeh who played Kit Deluca was amazing. Did you know her real life husband is Andy Karl?

The entire cast did a phenomenal job and I would love to go back and see it again.

Love is a beautiful thing and you never know where you’re gonna meet your partner. Your prince and princess or king and queen is out there somewhere.

I met the love of my life at work. You never know who’s paying attention to you and could possibly be your future husband or wife.

I just want to give a shoutout to everyone who works on Broadway. I’ve been to a lot of Broadway plays and it takes a lot of work from all team members to make it happen. Lot of sweat and tees and long hours.

Now is the time to see Pretty Woman On Broadway. Running time is: 2 hours and 30 minutes, including one 15-minute intermission. Use this Ticketmaster discount code: MOM1
