Trendy Travel with Momtrends

6 May

Memorial Day is only THREE weeks away!  Pools will open and traffic to the Hamptons and Jersey Shore will begin.  Shortly after, summer vacation will let out and families will travel to local beaches, other countries, or to visit family and friends near or far.

Last week I attended the Momtrends Travel Event at Butterfly StudiosMomtrends always hosts fabulous events that keep me up to date on the latest trends, newest gear and more for moms and kids.  At the Travel Event, Momtrends shared tips and introduced products to make your trip(s) trendy and stylish.

Butterfly Studios styled hair and shared tips to keep hair looking good.  Jill, my stylist, says to dry from the top, the moisture will go to the ends. Founder Kattia Solano demonstrated cute, easy ways to keep your hair pulled up and out of your face while traveling or spending the day by the beach.  I love the bun/ braid combo pictured above (bottom right).

Getting to your destination with a child(ren) can be challenging. Whether you are driving, taking a train, or flying Britax offers fabulous products to make traveling easier. A few products include:

  • The Britax Travel Cart to easily bring your car seat by pulling it along.  The best part, your child can sit in the car seat while you pull so you can check your stroller.
  • Driving long distances? The Kick Mat will keep your seat protected while having pockets to organize toys, books, snacks, or water.  The EZ- Cling window Shades
  • Potty training or wet bathing suits? Keep your seats from getting wet with the Seat Saver Waterproof Liner is easy to insert into a car seat or stroller.

While on vacation, I love starting my morning with a run along the beach.  At the event, I got a sneak peak of the BOB Revolution Pro jogging stroller, available at REI in a single or double.  The pro has an adjustable handle.  The wheels are bigger, good for rough terrain like the sand (or snow). Although it is a bigger stroller, it’s fairly light, it has an easy 2-step fold and a travel bag is available to make bringing it with you easier.

I’m more than ready to soak up the sun by the beach or pool.  One of my favorite swimsuits is a Miraclesuit® I received it at a Momtrends event a couple of years ago(read review here).   I was excited to see the the Miraclesuit® team at the Travel Event.  Miraclesuit® empowers women to feel good and look fabulous no matter your body type. At the event they showcased the latest swim trends.  Snakeskin is in!

Besides being absolutely adorable, the Trunki PaddlePack is perfect for children (or yourself) to carry towels, toys, and more.  The PaddlePak is waterproof, has straps to carry it on your back, a zipped pocket for carrying money, and a ring to hook keys or string goggles through.

After a long road trip or an afternoon playing in the sun, we love to cool off with ice cream.  Adironack Creamery offers several great flavors, caramal apple was my favorite.  Their ice cream is made with simple ingredients with no colors, additives, or preservatives.  The milk they use is hormone-free from the farms of the Hudson Valley.

Still making summer plans and planning your next vacation? Kim-Marie Evans of Luxury Travel Mom spoke at the event sharing her tips for traveling.  Tips to make your vacation one you and your kids will remember included searching on VRBO for rentals outside of cities for an authentic experience and not to be afraid of taking a group tour or traveling with a group.

Thank you to Momtrends and all of the sponsors for a wonderful event.  I'm ready for fun in the sun wearing a PaddlePak, Miraclesuit Hat & Miraclesuit Bathing Suit. Carrying a Vera Bradley Towel and Britax Coffee Mug.
