Travel Trends that Make Family Travel Easier

Last week, I attended a Travel Trends event hosted by the most gracious hostess, Nicole Feliciano of Momtrends. The event took place at The Butterfly Studios in the fashionable Flatiron District of New York City.  The event showed us how to make traveling easy, fashionable and more fun, especially with a family.

Easy Hair Style for Traveling

We were treated to getting our hair styled by one of The Butterfly Studio’s hair stylists and Kattia, The Butterfly Studio’s owner demonstrated an easy way to keep your hair looking stylish, but still up and out of your face (moms – we are guilty of putting our hair up in a ponytail!).

Kattia demonstrated a three-braid hair style. First, add texture with a texturizing spray or dry shampoo. Next, section off three areas of your hair: one low ponytail and two other sections near your crown. Take the ponytail and make it into a braid; wrap that braid into a bun. Make two smaller braids with the other two sections near your crown. Wrap those braids around the larger braid and secure with bobby pins and hair ties.

Miraclesuit Bathing Suits Helps You Slim Down

Miraclesuit is a bathing suit company that has been around for 25 years. I had written about Miraclesuit before. It is a bathing suit that is made from patented materials that promises that it will make you look 10 lbs. lighter in 10 seconds.  Lucky attendees at the event took home a suit. You’ll be sure that I’ll be wearing mine at our family vacation at Beaches Turks & Caicos next month!

Fun and Functional Travel Gear with Trunki’s PaddlePaks!

No, these aren’t JUST sea creatures. They are sea creatures that are fun traveling back packs for your kids! They are made out of waterproof material so that anything that is inside the PaddlePak stays dry. (I’ll be “borrowing” my daughter’s to stash my iPhone and iPad in it when we go to the beach or pool!) They come in really creative styles like a whale, shark, octopus and various types of fish. The PaddlePak has adjustable shoulder straps, reflective tape, tail fin purse, a safety breakaway clip and all Trunki products are tested to toy standards which means they are super-safe.

Britax Makes Traveling Easy

File this among products I wish that was around when my girls were younger: Stroller Strides Fitness Stroller. It has a swiveling front wheel allows for superior maneuverability, a lightweight frame for easy traveling and the best part? It only takes two steps to fold! Seriously! They demonstrated the folding process at the event and I was amazed how a big stroller could fold so easily.

Britax’s Car Seat Travel Cart is an amazing travel tool. Because not only can it carry your child’s car seat, but it can also carry your child in the car seat. It’s lie a stroller for your car seat! It’s amazing.
