Halloween is 2 weeks away!  How do you take your little one trick-or-treating?  When my 2nd was born, trick-or-treating got a little tricky with 2.  I did not want to take my stroller through crowded hallways and streets.  Wearing my youngest was a much easier option.  Check out these awesome babywearing costume ideas.

Enter to win a Dark Navy Stokke MyCarrier to make this Halloween (and travels during the upcoming Holiday season) easier.  Contest ends at 11:59 pm October 24!

SCOOT Around Town Stokke Chic

20130305-213906.jpgNot long ago I attended an event with Momtrends to introduce two strollers new to the market by Stokke . Most moms are familiar with the Stokke Xplory because of its unique look and height. Now in their line up of strollers is the Stokke Crusi, a multiconnection stroller that can be used as a single or double and the Stokke Scoot, a compact stroller. At the end of the event, I strolled out with the new Stokke Scoot for the purpose of this review (below). For a full recap of the event from Momtrends, click here.

Living in New York City, your stroller is your main set of wheels and your main accessory.   Finding a stroller that is easy to maneuver, put into a taxi, and looks great all at the same time is hard to find. When I started my stroller search, before my first, I had not heard of Stokke. The only stroller I had really seen or heard of was the Bugaboo. Since then I have gone through multiple brands of strollers trying to find the one that was ideal for my family and one that could be my main set of wheels and looks great. The Stokke Scoot is ideal for a baby or small toddler who does not have siblings or the older sibling is able to walk.  It has been perfect for our family because my oldest is rarely in the stroller since she is in school all day and is also old enough to walk.  Most days, it is just me and my youngest running errands in the Stokke Scoot so there is no need for a large double or big stroller.  Some of the features I love about the stroller:

  • Higher hight position to make child closer to interact when rear acing and exploring the world when facing front
  • A one-handed folding system, by far the easiest fold of all the strollers I have tried.
  • It is light weight, 22 lbs, and easy to carry or put into a taxi for city moms and cars for suburban moms on the go.  Also, ideal for families who travel frequently.
  • The under basket is big and is perfect for carrying groceries home or storing backpacks for school.
  • The tires don’t require a pump, my last stroller had air-filled tires that were always deflating and puncturing.
  • The cup holder is perfect for my morning coffee or water for my daughter.  Hoping an extra cup/ snack holder will be available in the future to place into the parasol opening.
  • Available in 7 fabulous colors, black melange is pictured.
  • My favorite is that the stroller can be pushed up to a table at a park, restaurant or caffè  and function as a high chair for a quick snack or a meal out with the family.

What you should know before buying:

  • Although the seat looks small, my daughter always seems comfortable and asks to ride in “her” stroller every morning.
  • Only two recline positions: upright/active or laying back/ rest.
  • Suitable from birth to up to 33 lbs
  • It is difficult getting up onto sidewalks when the child is faced toward you and there is no ramp.

The Stokke Scoot is available now and retails for $699.99! Click the link for a full demonstration.  Happy SCOOTing!

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.
