We’re talking Holiday gifts! I know, I know. It’s not even Thanksgiving. And you may not even be thinking about holiday shopping yet. Or maybe you are the person that has all of their holiday shopping done by Halloween (I know a couple of those Unicorns). I LOVE the holiday season and I LOVE a party, so I was excited to be invited by Momtrends to the #MTHoliday soiree with some of my favorite fellow bloggers and amazing brands.
How can you not get into the holiday spirit in this
beautiful space at Splashlight Studios in NYC?
First stop, Noble Vines for some wine tasting and food pairings. It’s always good to have wine on hand during the holidays (well, all year really) for unexpected guests or to bring to a party. These are great every day, affordable wines-all are between $9.00-$11.00 a bottle! Can’t beat that. I sampled the Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet, and Rose…had to do my research!
And what’s wine without some cheese. We got to sample some different cheeses from Jarlsberg that would make a great addition to any party cheese board.
With all the wine and holiday cheer, one must stay hydrated! The amount of plastic that goes into the landfills from bottled water is so upsetting. I love the sustainable packaging of Boxed Water!
This is the item you never knew you always needed. Functional and fashionable oversized key ring that you can wear on your arm or easily find in your bag. And they come in a ton of different colors. I snagged a black and white leather snake-skin ring.
No wonder they are one of Oprah’s Favorite Things.
This was made for Moms like me…I like the thought of baking, but in reality not so much. Who has the time? And all those ingredients. And to make it pretty. But, my future pastry chef in training is always begging me to bake. Enter Red Velvet NYC.
Everything you need to create impressive gourmet treats is delivered in a beautiful box, complete with instructions and pre measured ingredients.

Look Good…Feel Good…Do Good. This is the philosophy behind My Cents of Style. All on a budget. Now that is something I can bet behind. Their high quality collection of accessories, dresses, shoes, graphic tees, scarves, gloves are stylish and affordable. I’m in love with my blanket scarf I received. All orders ship for FREE within the United States.
I use the stick on labels from Name Bubbles on everything! As moms, we know if it doesn’t get labeled, it doesn’t come home.
Loving the idea of using them to customize holiday gifts!
Fun and festive gifts! Some of my faves were the Baby’s mistletoes foot print kit, the milk and cookies Santa Set, and the Christmas photo props. Looking for ornaments or christmas frames? Look no further!
I snagged a set of Christmas Photo Props for a photo booth with my crazy family on Christmas Eve!
Everyone has that favorite pair of jeans. I was blown away by the quality and how trend right the Riders by Lee collection was! In addition to fashion forward tops and jackets, they are known for their super affordable great fitting jeans! I have my eye on the Skinny Boyfriend pair.
Some of my fellow bloggers modeling looks from the latest collection:
My challenge was to create an “Office Gathering Outfit” for the #rblstylechallenge. What do you think?
A whole new spin on decorating for the holidays! Create digital decorations and project onto any wall or flat surface creating awesome holiday scenes and images. Where are all my peeps that have decorating competitions with your neighbors?? This will take you up a notch!
All busy Mamas raise your hands! Trying to fit in a mani and a pedi between everything else you have to do? Yeah, me too! Problem solved. This professional service comes to YOU!
And…we got to take home some more goodies! A beautiful print from Thimble Press, dry shampoo from Living Proof (I’ve always wanted to try it!) , the new Hasbro game Hearing Things, and a Kidz Bop CD!
Everyone loves to receive presents, but it’s so important to remember to give back especially during the holiday season. Second Chance Toys keeps plastic toys out of the landfill by giving them to children in need. Most of us have plastic toys in our homes that our kids have outgrown or don’t play with. Please consider donating them to this worthy cause.
Here’s to a festive and fabulous Holiday Season!
