Mamas on the Move (Page 2)

The rain was dripping on the gravel area of my back patio, with big, fat raindrops plopping into the tiered fountain. It’s the time of the day where dinner is simmering on the stove and the rest of the family has yet to come home for the day. As I poured and looked at the light color, I thought of the Wine in the City event I hosted along with Erika Lehmann and Tim Hayden. We were graced with the beautiful personalities of Jackson Family Wines – Barbara Banke and Katie Jackson. The La Crema 2008 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay opens with crisp green apple andRead More →

I posted beforehand about the launch of a new spa concept – eforea: spa at Hilton. I was fortunate enough to be invited to the launch party by Hilton Hotels and Resorts. I’ve been on many press trips in the past decade, but I rarely attend launch parties (I live in Louisiana), which made this a refreshing experience. Those of you interested in the launch party may want to watch the video I put together of the night: The night began with cocktails and  press briefing, followed by a tour of the first eforea: spa at Hilton. While the concept of a spa at aRead More →

BlogWorld and New Media Expo isn’t just an educational experience, but it’s also a chance to network and build your brand. A trio of us (me, ThemeParkMom, and MommyMusings) decided to make a girlfriend getaway out this annual event. It is Las Vegas, after all! TravelingMamas.com was a media partner with BlogWorld and I was also the instigator behind the travel portion of the expo. Each year, I learn a little bit more and I always listen to the attendees opinions on what they liked and what they didn’t, so that each time it gets that much better. The best part about the entire expoRead More →

Tonight I’m attending the launch event of the Hilton brand’s new spa concept – eforea: spa at Hilton. I love the Hilton brand, and when you add spa into the mix, it’s a match made in heaven for me. The launch is being celebrated with a special performance by SEAL and other celebrities are scheduled to be on hand, including Tyson and Real Housewife of New York Bethenny Frankel, who will be signing books. I can’t wait to see who walks the blue carpet later tonight and hopefully send a few photos to Twitter. When I initially arrived into Newark this afternoon, I was greeted by a nice driver who had a giftRead More →

Vegas is the city that never sleeps. It’s also a city full of great eats. One meal that doesn’t get enough love in Vegas is breakfast. I can’t survive without something to eat at the beginning of the day, especially during busy events like BlogWorld. Our friends in Vegas suggested we sample the breakfast offerings at Silk Road, located in Vdara just behind Aria Casino at CityCenter. We started off with blood orange mimosas, which were fitting for any girlfriend getaway. I opted for eggs Benedict, which were delicious, but @themeparkmom’s breakfast sliders were off the hook! We also tried the ham and cheese beignet’sRead More →
