Recently I had the opportunity to attend a wonderful event called the Mom Mixer Spring Into Summer with Lands End in Philadelphia at the beautiful XIX Restaurant on the 19th floor of the Hyatt at the Bellvue Hotel. The event was organized by the lovely and uber-awesome power-house team of Colleen Padilla of Classy Mommy and Whitney Wingerd of Mommies with Style. This was a great chance for the incredible local community of social media moms from the Philadelphia area (and beyond!) to come out and mingle, get a glimpse of some new spring and summer products, and get to know some really exciting brands and hot products this season. I had a blast at this event just seeing what some of the hot brands were showcasing and getting to know some wonderful people and products. Plus, I’m always game for a great excuse to hang out with fun moms and catch up with friends I don’t get to see enough in real life! The event was co-sponsored by Lands End who had an incredible presence with two LandsEnd Swim designers attending and helping women to find their perfect swim suit fit (something that nearly every woman I know absolutely dreads). They had many of the versatile and stylish suits on display from this summer’s line so we could see the fit and fabrics and new styles.
In addition to the swimsuits, jeans, and jewels, there was also some incredible yummy foods to try including the brand new premium McWraps from McDonalds and my new favorite yougurt, Koru. I got to try the Sweet Chili premium McWrap and it was so delicious! I am thrilled that this is a new option for me at McDonalds because it was oh so tasty – yum!
I also fell in love with Koru creamery style yoghurt, a new “mind-blowingly delicious” yoghurt that really is so good. I tried the passion fruit and peach flavors and they were incredible. You guys, if you see this yoghurt in the store near year make sure you grab it up and don’t share it with your kids.
And one of my absolute favorite organizations was also at the event, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation which is a local organization working to end childhood cancer worldwide by raising money for cancer research one cup of lemonade at a time.
Johnson & Johnson also had a great Baby Booth set up at the event where we moms could create a “care card” with a message of reassurance for a special mom in our life and for every card created Johnson & Johnson donated $1 to the Save the Children as a part of the Johnson’s Baby CARES charitable initiative. And, with all the cards we moms made that day we Johnson & Johnson will donate $500 to Save the Children just from us! WOOT
Not only was Lands End there helping women find the perfect fit for swimsuit season but Lee Jeans was there too and we were very fortunate to get a personal jeans fitting and even a fabulous pair of Lee Jeans to take home. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new Lee Jeans which are super stylish cut in a bold organge color they call “Ting Tang.” I have to admit that I haven’t worn Lee Jeans in a very long time (I’m talking like decades here people) and boy have they come a long way since then. All the Lee Jeans available to try on were both stylish and had a super fit for real women. I’m thrilled to have rediscovered Lee Jeans and can’t wait to get my next pair! I’m thinking of trying the Kelly green ones next!
