These Shoes Were Made For Walking {& Crocs Giveaway}

Posted on by

Confession… I was never the girl who could wear high heels all day long. On busy days, I would always carry a comfy pair in my bag to change into when running from place to place. And now as a mom of three in New York City where we basically walk everywhere, comfortable shoes are an absolute must. I will give you an example of one of my typical days, which definitely could not have been accomplished if I was wearing some sort of heel, wedge, or pump.

Just yesterday, my crazy day started dropping Ryder and Siela off at individual schools, Gemma was in tow. I ran back home to quickly shower and change, to be in midtown with Gemma at 9:30 for a photoshoot, next it was off to Central Park for an appointment at noon, then back downtown to pick up the bigs from school. After school, Siella and I headed to her back to back dance classes, then back home for dinner, and then I went back uptown to SoHo for yet another meeting. Somehow all these appointments and commitments landed on the same day, leaving me in an absolute worldwin of chaos.

One of the only things that helped get me through this hectic day was wearing my super comfy Crocs sandals. In the past, when thinking about Crocs, I always associated them with the classic clog or kids brand, but their new styles are feminine and more refined this spring season. The Isabella Sandal comes in an array of colors with soft translucent straps, and I just love this turquoise, pink, yellow combo. They’re stylish enough for my meetings, and super lightweight which make them ideal to wear all day long. And, the Croslite foam footbed cushions my tired soles, after hours of pounding the concrete.

Now that I have my own pair of Crocs, I can understand my kids’ obsession with them. I even picked up a second pair; these Sienna flats. This ballet style flat has a slim, sleek fit, but definitely does not compromise the Crocs comfort factor. The distinctive heel cutouts give them a breezy, casual attitude, and their light weight makes them easy to toss into my bag, so I can change into them whenever I go. My feet have now been opened up to a whole new world of comfort thanks to Crocs.

Honestly, there is no way I can play my role as a work at home, stay at home mom each and every day without wearing shoes that allow me to be on the go, yet stylish at the same time.

Birds Eye View of NYC

Posted on by

For the last year, I’ve been following the FlyNYON Instagram account, loving their aerial view shots of New York City. I actually told Jason that for my birthday, I’d love to take a tour of the city in  a doorless helicopter. I’ve never flown on a helicopter before, but I’ve had a love of flying for many years. From a young age and still today, I could watch planes take off and land all day long. I’m fascinated by the whole thing and I even joke that one day I plan on getting my pilots’ license. It’s never too late right?

Well, time has slipped by, and I forgot to schedule time to go up on FlyNYON, until I received an email about the new Angry Birds Movie, which actually hit theaters today! What better way to promote the movie, than with an actual birds eye view of the city. While waiting at the Blade Terminal located on the East River at 34th Street, our help arrived with a big Red Angry Bird on its side of the helicopter.

Sony Pictures brings on screen yet another Angry Birds flick, and this time it’s in 3D. It’s been a much anticipated movie in our house, and every time Ryder see’s the trailer, he gets even more pumped to see it. The cast includes Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, and Danny McBride.

These flightless birds typically lead a mostly happy existence, except for Red (Jason Sudeikis), who just can’t get past the daily annoyances of life. His temperament leads him to an anger management class, where he meets fellow misfits Chuck (Josh Gad) and Bomb. Red becomes even more agitated when his feathered brethren welcome green pigs to their island paradise. As the swine begin to get under his skin, Red joins forces with Chuck and Bomb, to investigate the true reason behind their mysterious arrival.IMG_0137IMG_0110 IMG_0094 IMG_0076

Well, now it was my turn to fly like an Angry Bird. During lift off, it was a little windy with some turbulence, which left me a little nervous. But I quickly forgot about the bumps, because once we were mid air, we were able to rest of feet on the bar outside the fuselage. It was such a cool feeling, but I could only keep them out there for a second as the wind was too fierce for me.

We flew over the East River Bridges, Central Park, Columbus Circle, and my absolute favorite, we were right next to the Empire State Building.  Being able to see New York from this view was  Truly one of the coolest things I’ve ever done, and I can’t wait to do it again!

Thank you Kidzvuz and Sony Pictures for an unbelievable experience.  And don’t forget- go see the Angry Birds movie, in theaters this weekend!

Sunday Styles: Cheeky Plum

Posted on by

Finally, we were graced with the first nice May day, this past Saturday. The weather was sunny, temps hit the 70’s, and we couldn’t spend enough time outside. To celebrate the warm weather, we took the pups for a little walk around the neighborhood with the girls.

Siella and Gemma have been begging to wear their new Cheeky Plum dresses that have been sitting in their closet. This super sweet line started by a new mother, who had a desire to create something special for her little girl. She always had a love of creating one-of-a-kind pieces from custom pillows to party decorations, and her little girl stirred that child like inspiration. Fortunately, other moms have benefitted from this creativity, with these colorful gems, because they too can now have something special for their little girls. All of the dresses are filled with a colorful flair that is also simple, yet beautiful.

Siella is wearing the French Farmhouse Dress. It has a vintage feel with a modern twist, and the vibrant florals are accented by a light wash chambray skirt for a country feel. The hem features a unique ivory fringe, which is Siella’s favorite part.

Gemma is wearing the Alivia Dress. The elastic back with straps make for a comfy fit, and its flowy shape had her doing twirls in the street. You know I love matching the girls, so the way that the three panel skirt complimented Siella’s dress was a total bonus.

So, this Saturday was definitely a bright one, and we look forward to more spring fun in the days to come.

If you are digging these dresses just as much as my girls, use code CHEEKY10 for free shipping!
