Girls, Get Ready to Sparkle With The Children’s Place Holiday 2012 Collection

7 Aug

Last week I attended the Momtrends preview of The Children’s Place 2012 Holiday Collection, expected to hit stores in September.  Attendees ate hors d’oeuvres, sipped on champagne, wine, or sparkling water while mingling with fellow bloggers. and learning about the fashion trends for the 2012 Holiday season.  The event got me very excited for the Holidays, even though it is August, it got me thinking about everything I love about the holidays: friends, family, parties, food, drinks and decorating cookies with the girls( I received beautifully decorated snow flake cookies for attending).

As I was putting my pictures together for this post, I realized I only took pictures of the girls collection which is full of sparkles and sequins.  My girls love to pick out their own outfits and when we shop the highlight is trying on clothes in the dressing room while putting together outfits in their very own “fashion show”.  I already know they are going to LOVE this collection and I found a few pieces I want to add to their closet. My youngest likes to look at pictures on my phone and she came across the pictures of the hats and boots and told me she wanted the pink as well as the purse, bracelets, and necklaces.

Every year I wait to the last minute for the girls Holidays.  Thank you Momtrends and The Children’s Place for giving me a head start in picking out their Holiday outfit.  Can’t wait for the collection to hit stores so I can start shopping!

Braving The Streets of NYC In A Miraclesuit {Review and Giveaway}

A few weeks ago I received an e-mail from MomTrends looking for mom bloggers to volunteer to wear Miraclesuits® during their event withMiraclesuits®.   I was hesitant because the e-mail said there was a possible appearance on the TODAY show. I was with my mom when I got the e-mail, told her about it and she told me I should do it.  I impulsively replied back that I would, not knowing all the details. I am usually pretty shy and it takes a glass of wine or two for me to come out of my shell, so this was a BIG challenge for me.  Once I started finding out more and more details I had thought about backing out but decided I needed that challenge.  I can now say I braved NYC on a SWELTERING HOT day in a Miraclesuit® with Wilhelmina model Roshumba Williams and eighteen other women to celebrate the first day of summer.

Prior to the event I went into the Miraclesuit® office to try on different suits to find one that fit me best for the big day.  Miraclesuit®  designer swimwear will make you Look 10 Lbs Lighter in 10 Seconds, the time it takes to slip one on. Miraclesuit® swimsuits are constructed from a proprietary blend of control fabric called Miratex. This fabric slims and slenderizes without relying on constrictive control panels or inner linings. The high concentration of Lycra spandex means that Miraclesuit’s keep their shape… and yours.(from Miraclesuit.comI don’t usually wear a one piece and I usually do strapless but I loved the suit I ended up with.  It was comfortable and slimming, sometimes one pieces aren’t very flattering but this suit was.  I even loved the low V neck line.  I felt great in it and will definitely be wearing it again poolside with my two girls.

Sonatina Swimwear $142, similar to the style I was wearing.

The Miraclesuit Celebrates Summer Event took place on Thursday, June 20 in NYC.  On the morning of the event all the women in swimsuits, myself included, met at Rockefeller center in our heels and suits.  We walked around Rockefeller Center wishing everyone a happy first day of summer and passed out flyers about the promo for free shipping all day.  After we headed into the NBC store to be in the audience of the questions asked during the panel of “Guys Tell All” (click and watch video to see if you can find Miraclesuit® women) during Kathie Lee and Hoda on the TODAY show.  After taking over Rockefeller Center we joined Roshumba Williams and fellow bloggers on a NYC double-decker sightseeing bus and made stops around Manhattan handing out Miraclesuit Giveaway Bags. In about 100 bags there were “golden tickets”, redeemable for a FREE Miraclesuit® valued at $150.  Despite the heat, everyone was energetic and pumped to celebrate the start of “summer in the city”.
