Just in time for the summer vacation season, Embassy Suites Hotels, Hilton Worldwide’s upper-upscale, all-suites hotel chain, is teaming up with celebrity mom Brooke Burke-Charvet to help parents and kids see eye-to-eye on a number of hot-button topics. To kick things off, Burke-Charvet hosted the “Pretty Great Family Debate,” a conversation among media (and their kids). The “debate” aimed to uncover light-hearted, win-win solutions to common family disputes such as bedtime, the dinner menu, homework – and of course, vacation planning. Throughout the debate, Burke- Charvet and a panel of parenting and travel media experts shared their tips for keeping the peace in their families.
A busy mom who is frequently on the road with her four children, Burke-Charvet knows a thing or two about creating a winning and memorable travel experience for each member of the family. To start, she recommends involving the whole family in the planning process and choosing a hotel that keeps family needs top-of-mind. “Picking trip activities that will appeal to everyone in the family can be challenging, but it can be done,” says Burke-Charvet. Additionally, part of keeping everyone happy and satisfied on vacation is staying at a family-focused hotel; like Embassy Suites – with unique family-friendly offerings. After all, the hotel serves as your home away from home, so a complimentary breakfast with lots of made-to-order options and suites with two separate rooms, two TVs means there’s no compromising on vacation fun; everyone wins.”
Throughout the summer, Embassy Suites will share these insights, so families across the country can make the most of family travel. For more information visit www.embassysuites.com

The eco friendly D.I.D Nail Paint, and Dasha Wellness & Spa, provided an energetic evening of beauty & wellness at Dasha Wellness & Spa's flagship location in NYC, all in support of Denim Day's 15th annual celebration.
Denim Day is an annual violence prevention day sponsored by the Los Angeles-based nonprofit Peace Over Violence. Denim Day especially focuses on raising awareness about abuse and violence against women and children. Close to 10 million people across the country participated in 2013. Denim Day provides a wonderful opportunity for people to show solidarity with survivors of abuse around the country and to encourage open discussion about how we can work in our personal and professional lives to reduce violence in our communities.
Wanting to establish a stronger presence for the campaign in NYC, D.I.D. nail paint founder Adrienne Blanks wanted to give people the opportunity to give back through something as simple as purchasing nail color and she along with Dasha owners Shannon & Dr. Darren Pollack did a great job at that!! To date, Dasha Wellness & Spa has been in support of over 25 charities, donating and hosting event to cause that help support enhancing one's own well being. A foundation that their business has thrived on for the past 5 years.
D.I.D. Nail paint color "Surfboard" was also a huge manicure highlight as it was the first time the nail color from the new collection had been used. The Surf Board paint color brought a spring touch and had everyone who saw it chatting as the new trending color of the season. D.I.D. nail paint color Billie's Jeans raised close to $100 dollars in sells and a portion will be made to DenimDayUsa.org .
