MomTrends at Exhale Spa Meatpacking

24 Apr

Last week I attended the MomTrends Living in Style Event at Exhale Spa Meatpacking.  The morning started with a choice of a spa treatment: a polish change with Scotch Naturals, a massage, a skin consultation, or ear seeds from Exhale Spa.  I decided to try the ear seeds since I had never heard about them before.  Ear seeds are an acupuncture therapy in which a hard seed(s) are taped to different pressure points in your ear to help relieve stress.  Seeds can last up to 2 weeks, mine is still there a week later.  I am not sure if it is helping me relieve stress though.  I only had one seed placed in and with both girls going through difficult stages in the toddler years, I think I may have needed a few more put in.  Not sure if I would go back for more seeds but I would love to go back to try other acupuncture therapies or the acupuncture massage.

After therapies, delicious wraps were provided by The Fresh Diet and dessert from Keep It Sweet. While eating I listened to presentations from sponsors: Stokke, Belabumbum, Exhale Spa, and Jill Vegas and was able to check out their products.  Did you know that parents send their kids to college with their STOKKE Trip Trap Highchair to be used as their desk chair?  Such a great idea that I will do with my girls.  I have so many friends who are new moms and have needed ideas for a gift.  I love Belabumbum’s adorable mom and baby sets, my favorite is the Starlit set.  Jill Vegas inspired me to redecorate my apartment during her presentation.  She showed different ways to add bright colors like peony pink and blue lapis into the home without going over the top.  I may need to sign up for Jill’s six-week online speed decorating class that starts in June.  Other sponsors included: FunBites, Method, Scotch Naturals, and Karin Von Voigtlander Photography.

After the presentations, I took a Core Fusion Classwith Anna G which was ridiculously hard but an excellent workout.  The class focused on all areas: arms, legs, glutes, and abs and included stretching between sets. My core has never been the same since becoming a mom but I think with a few more classes I can get relatively close to where I was before. I was very sore for a few days after but it reminded me that I need to take time out of my day to get back into shape.
