It was a trendy travel time with Momtrends last night. Top NYC bloggers gathered at Butterfly Studio for summer hairstyling tips, a preview of hot travel gear, family travel planning, and dazzling swim apparel.
The event kicked off with personal hair styling for each blogger. Kattia, owner of Butterfly Studio, demonstrated two easy hair styles for travel and beyond: 1) an upside down pony tail and 2) braiding. Kattia's Tip: always use products to volumize and sculpt the hair when styling.
Following hairstyling, Kim-Marie Evans from the Luxury Travel Mom shared travel trends and inspirations for a memorable family vacation. You can check out all the great tips on Luxury Travel Mom.
- "Travel is about those spontaneous moments where you don't know who you'll meet". Go beyond the traditional family vacation and try adventure travel that submerses you in the culture.
- Try a group tour, like Austin Lehman Adventures. Group tours are stress free and they will take you to places you may not otherwise be able to see.
- Eat With - Dine in homes around the world rather than in the tourist restaurants.
- "Make the journey as fun as the destination". Get a travel agent and stop wasting time, energy and resources booking travel online.
Armed with hairstyling and take-off tips, bloggers gathered for on-the-go gear with Britax. Whether you are traveling by car, air or foot, Britax has a host of gear and accessories to get you there in style and safely.
Trunki, a brand we all know and love has done it again, but this time with a waterproof swim bag, PaddlePaks, designed from sea creatures. The names, like Pinch the Lobster and Inky the Octopus, are as cute as the designs. PaddlePaks have adjustable straps, a hook for pacifiers, and a tail fin purse. You can find them atTrunki.com.
