Getting Holiday Ready with MomTrends! #MTHolidaySoiree

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

We hope everyone is feeling festive! As the most wonderful time approaches we are looking for the best options for entertaining and gifting. I was invited to the #TMHolidaySoiree to experience the best of the holidays.

When you think of Thanksgiving and holidays, in general, you might think of table scapes and Tighemi (pronounced tih-guh-mee). Tighemi is inspired by the beauty of Morocco their artisan and craftsmanship. TheseTighemi glazed plate sets make any table photo ready!

Speaking of photo-ready... I am loving my new dress from Cabi. The Poise dress is an easy dress that when paired with my Marcia Moran necklace feels more dressed up! When I added my blowout from Glam + Go & my mani from GlossLab I was ready for festive photos!

Feeling festive! Exchanging gifts is easier when they are clearly labeled that's why I love these  gift decorating and labeling solutions from Mabels Labels and Eo Creative Works.

The holidays are about gathering and there's no better way to do that than over a meal. Cooking at home is great but a restaurant can be an equally cozy option. I was delighted by the options at Sugar Cane https://www.sugarcanerawbargrill.com located in Brooklyn with amazing views of NYC so there are breathtaking photo spots. The food at Sugar Cane also offers something for everyone.

My favorite menu items included: shishito peppers, caulilini and sweet potato. Yummy!


What do the holidays mean for you? Let me know in the comments below.

Harman Kardon + Ram Unveiling Event

Recently, Harman Kardon hosted a Nashville-inspired event in New York City to celebrate the unveiling of the 2019 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup truck complete with sound like no other. 

Harman Kardon collaborated with Grammy-award winning producer, Dave Cobb, to tune Ram’s Harman Kardon system together with Harman Kardon engineers.

The 19-speaker, 900-watt premium sound system from Harman Kardon delivers an epic sound experience. We got to experience the Ram’s Harman Kardon system and also enjoy a special performance by Americana Awards Emerging Artist of the Year, Amanda Shires.
