You may have noticed some changes going on at Momtrends and I'm taking a moment to share all the exciting news and let you know about the opportunities we have to work with your brand or blog.
First, thanks to the team at Doubleshot Tech, we've got a whole new look. It should be easier than ever to navigate the site thanks to handy drop-down bars. You can also click on the link of your favorite author to see all of her work and we've added an archive bar so you can catch up on the trends at your leisure.
I can't do it all alone! We've been consistently adding talent to our roster and this year is no exception. A few notable additions to the site include Kate Bayless as our "Gear Girl" and Kristin Swenson as our Contributing Fashion Editor. I've been struggling to keep up with sharing all the trends--Kristin has stepped up beautifully and will be an even bigger part of the site in 2013. Look for here "Trendy Thursday" posts and the new "Mini Style Saturday" --both are essential reads!. Serena Norr continues to oversee everything that posts on the site as our intrepid Managing Editor--everything runs through her that ends up on Momtrends. Brooke Stewart has been busier than ever signing marketing deals with us and Sherri Schubert remains the best Event Manager in NYC. For a full list of our team click here.
Brands like us. And we like sharing our favorite brands with our favorite influencers. It's what we do best. This year alone we've shared paid three huge blogging opportunities with key online women. Partnerships so far include: Old Navy, Stride Rite, and Disney Paint for Glidden. The best way to get on our radar is to sign up on our Blogger News & Opportunities list here. There's much more to come in 2013.

School has started back for many (us included!), and today's Kid's in the Kitchen recipe makes for a perfect breakfast or after-school snack. We made ours for an after-school snack the other day and my second grader loved it. We call this recipe Mini Banana Waffle Pies With ...read more
The Best Overnight French Toast Recipe
We've hit the winter lull--that lengthy stretch of season with no plans, no parties, nothing to do, and nowhere to go. I have to admit that at first, I welcomed the quiet obligation-free weekends of January. After the nonstop hustle-bustle pace of November and December, my family ...read more
You might have noticed the fabulous Monday Mingle photo shoots. We've found an amazing studio partner in Bellamy Blue. Now we're able to showcase trends even better than before. Since fashion is so visual, we want to make sure our photos tell the story of how to best interpret the trends. We shoot 1x a month and always have spots for sponsors to participate. Contact Brooke Stewart momtrends (at) hotmail (dot) com to find out about our next shoot.
We've got a video partner too! MomtrendsTV is a growing opportunity. Each week we share a new style-centric video on our YouTube Channel and these fresh takes on fashion have been syndicated at JustHerStyle.com. Again, we're always looking for great partners.
We really love to network...and throw parties. This year the team will be attending Mom 2.0 Summit in May/California, BlogHer in July/Chicago and co-hosting the fabulous Fashion Forward Conference in NYC/September. Find out how to connect with our powerful network of bloggers at these unique events, by contacting Brooke Stewart for a deck on conference engagement.
