MOMTRENDS BLOGGERS

We bloggers celebrate everything early.  Thanks to all the brand invites and special blogger events, I’ve been thinking about Christmas since this past summer! (not kidding!)  And now that it is the beginning of November, we have just finalized the festive focus with a feast hosted by MomTrends.  Top NYC bloggers were invited to an intimate dinner at Sugar Cane Raw Bar Grill in Brooklyn where the halls were decked, and presents awaited us.  What a treat it was!

DINNER

Have you been to Sugar Cane Raw Bar Grill?  They have locations in Miami, Las Vegas and Brooklyn.  This DUMBO (Brooklyn) location had stunning waterfront views of the Brooklyn Bridge and the food was fabulous!  I’m definitely returning for the Korean short ribs, sweet potato with brown butter crumble, and dulce de leche fried french toast dessert!!  My mouth is watering just thinking about it.  Luckily, it’s right across the river and I can return easily with my family.  YUM!

We enjoyed their delicious specialty cocktails, toasted to a terrific night out and loved the cozy and inviting vibe of the restaurant.

DECOR

Decking the halls is one of my favorite parts about the holidays.  And this holiday soiree totally inspired us to do so!  With EO Creative Works providing handcrafted holiday decor, you couldn’t help but feel in the holiday spirit!

The stockings were hung by the raw bar with care in the hopes that Saint Nicholas soon would be there!  These stockings (plus garland and wine bags) were made of all-natural, eco-friendly materials by EO Creative Works.  The manufacturing process uses materials like burlap and cotton canvas with azo-free dyes to create its natural, contemporary, classic look.  I’m definitely presenting these Christmas wine holders to my next holiday host!

I just LOVED all the little details!

I love a pretty tablescape!  If you love a well-designed tablescape too, make sure to click here for mine through the years!

Yes, presents!  There were LOTS of goodies waiting for us.  Apparently, we’ve been GOOD!  Very, Very GOOOOOD!

GLAM

We had some great glam sponsors too!  Everyone was treated to a Glam and Go 30min-blowout of their choice.  I personally love the retro wave look so I always go for that and have learned a few tips from the pros along the way.  They have several locations through the city and offer an unlimited plan for the frequent customer.  What a great feeling it would be to have a great hair day everyday!

STYLE

Style is top of mind for all of us bloggers so when we were able to partner up with Cabi Clothing for a couple items of our choice we were so excited.  Thank you Cabi for this versatile top!  I can wear it so many ways, with a skirt, jeans, leggings, one shoulder out, both shoulders out, as a layering underpinning, or all by itself.  Check out how Sherri from MomTrends and I twinned and styled it two very different ways!

Re-fashioning Your Family and Home for the Holidays with Peyton & Parker

I don’t know about you but I LOVE to re-style my home every season and holiday.  It freshens up the look, and is one of my favorite ways to celebrate the everyday!  Admittedly, it’s terribly easy to be tempted every season to add to my holiday collections.  But alas, I live in NY where space is limited and funds are well, limited too!  So I either have to love it with all my heart and/or it has to be an irresistible deal!  That’s why when I heard about JCPenney’s newly launched Peyton and Parker collection, my ears perked up!  With all their affordable prices, I can (we can) all totally makeover our families AND homes this holiday season!

Pictured above are some of my favorite picks!  Isn’t the coordinated collection SO CUTE!  As you can see, the mix and match line includes items for the whole family and home while highlighting some of the latest trends (can you say mad for plaid??)  People are going to love it for being classic and approachable with great price points!

A plaid woman’s shirt for instance currently runs under $20 with their current coupon sale.  And orders over $99 come with free shipping!

That’s something to cheer about, isn’t it??

The more I studied the collection while at the MomTrends and Parents Magazine event, the more I realized that there were some amazing mommy and me finds here.  And you KNOW I love that!

Aren’t these just the most adorable sets?  I’m thinking these would make the perfect family holiday card outfits.  What do you think?  Click here for my 4 Dos and Don’ts when choosing what to wear for a photo shoot.  You DON’T want to be listed on that viral, awkward family photo site.
