This momma needed a night out (BAD!) and I was so excited to be included in this year’s #MTNIGHTOUT3 with Mom Trends and Parents Magazine.

I loved getting a chance to hit the town and catch up with all my favorite mommy bloggers plus meet one-on-one with leading brands for kids and baby. I got the inside scoop on products from some amazing hot brands and I can’t wait to fill you in on all the details. Plus, with the colder weather really hitting us hard in the last few weeks and the holiday season sneaking up on us, this is a must read!

While snacking on the delicious sushi and wine we were treated to massages in the V-Tech Relaxation Station and then got creative making the most gorgeous DIY smoothies in the Boiron Smoothie Bar. How fun is that?! The bloggers and editors mix and mingled with each other and the brands. But what better way to start the evening than with stuffing our choice of diaper bags at the Culturelle Station. Which is where I headed first…

Culturelle

Every mom makes sure to have all the necessities for baby in her favorite diaper bag! So as I was loading up my top picks for baby’s needs, I grabbed the new Culturelle® Baby Probiotics.  A line of probiotic products created to help build a strong foundation for your baby’s healthy growth and development. Having been trying probiotics for years and trying to introduce them to my kids, I realized how important it is start them early. Especially with the *#1 Pediatrician Recommended Brand, Culturelle.

JCPenney

Then I landed at the gorgeous Holiday inspired station fixed with a picturesque fireplace and festive pillows! I got my holiday style cap on and started putting together the perfect coordinating outfits for the whole family with the beautiful Peyton & Parker™ collection, exclusively at JCPenney.

VTech

After getting my styling session on, I need to sit down and relax. And that’s exactly what I did at the V-Tech Relaxation Station. Being treated to a massage while learning about all V-Tech’s new products was a win win! I love the idea of entertaining the kids with toys but not all toys are created equal. And I have become more aware of this over the years. My kids love to play all sorts of games but why not give them a toy that has built in education and leaning? I actually am a HUGE fan of their products so I was excited to see their latest creations. Yep, I had my pencil and paper already writing up my kids Christmas lists!

VTech is a world leader in developing high-quality, innovative educational products that enrich children development and make learning fun! I also was excited to see some products for older kids. One of my favorite items was the KidiBuzz Phone that actually allows kids to send texts, voice messages, photos, drawings and more! It uses Wi-Fi and can help kids stay connected to their parents (or an approved list of contacts) and encourges safe online interactions. This is perfect for my older kids who need to stay connected while they are out on playdates or birthday parties.

After all that fun, I need to refresh so I finished up at the Boiron Smoothie Bar! Where we were able to incorporate our own ingredients to make the perfect healthy drink! They even had edible flowers for garnish!! But what I loved the most was seeing the wide range of products. I have been using Boiron products for years. It was the first treatment I used on my little ones when they were small for cold symptom relief and I was so excited to get the scoop on all their products. Boiron is the largest manufacturer of homeopathic products in the world. Providing family friendly products. You’ve probably heard of their most popular product for flu relief, Oscillococcinum. Our favorites are the line of cough and cold relief medicines including Chestal and ColdCalm. So if you want to be prepared for this flu season you should definitely check them out. Oscillococcinum is best used at the first sight of flu symptoms so you should have it handy in the medicine cabinet. And the best part is that these homeopathic medicines do not cause drowsiness or sleeplessness. There’s no risk of overdose and they won’t interact with other medications, herbs, or supplements. Boiron’s medicines also do not contain any of the ingredients questioned by the FDA for use in children under age 4. Visit boironusa.com for more information.
