The annual Stokke blogger event which NYC-based, Momtrends host, is something that I have attended for the last 3 years. I am not so much a stroller reviewer, and surely I have never actually used a Stokke on a day-to-day basis. However, I do find the Scandinavian design to be innovative, unique and very appealing to a modern-day Mum living in New York City.
Living in New York City does has it’s advantages, especially if you are a Mummy Blogger. Willy B Mum is constantly invited to events and the Stokke Steps™ Launch, hosted by MomTrends, was one of our favorites. Held on a snowy stormy winter night at the beautiful Manhattan Penthouse known as Gary’s Loft, it was a perfect night for an exclusive preview of Stokke’s new bouncer and highchair combination.
You know, my 2.5 year old Son is really really into Super Heroes at the moment….. like really into Super Heroes. So, when I took him to an event with MomTrends last week at the NYC Chelsea Old Navy Store, he seriously could not believe his eyes when he saw Batman Pajamas hanging on the rack! It was love at first sight… seriously.
I can admit, I used to be a Bugaboo Snob! I would not even have thought about giving up my Cameleon Pram (Australian for Stroller), let alone consider a different kind of Pram! My husband knows first hand how stubborn I have been in this regard. As our Son is almost 2.5 years old, he has been unsuccessfully trying to convince me to switch to at least an Umbrella stroller, especially in the instances where we have to travel. But, I always insist on taking our Bugaboo with us everywhere. And, as much as I love it, it really is not the best pram to travel with, it is actually quite awkward and time-consuming to break down, store and set up.
Starting the New Year with a Blogging Bang, on the Winter Eve of January the 14th, I was picked up by a car service en route to Manhattan to the gorgeous space at the MPE Penthouse for another wonderful MomTrends event being a Party for Pantene Pro-V’s New Expert Collection.
The Night’s theme was all about hair, and I learned a lot about my trusses that I take everywhere with me! Did you know that your hair has an age? My hair is apparently 2 years younger than my real age, so I figure that is a good thing!
Being a NYC Mummy Blogger you are exposed to all kinds of wonderful opportunities; one of them is being on MomTrends radar and receiving invites to all of their marvelous events that they hold throughout the year.
