Back To School Style With MomTrends

Last week the lovely ladies of Momtrends invited me to their amazing Back to school event showcasing awesome new and old brands and some really cool products that you and your little ones need for the upcoming back to school season.


The event was held downtown Manhattan at Freshmade NYC, which is a cooking school for ages 2 and up. They teach children how to cook healthy items, while eating and sampling items they may not eat on a regular basis. My eldest adores baking with me so it will be a no brainer to take him back for a class!

They had some of the foods available for sampling and I was impressed. If a 4 year old can make it then I surely could too–right?!



Next I went over to the office candy booth where they design office supplies for home offices. These aren’t your ordinary clipboards and staplers! They come in fantastic colors and patterns to liven up ANY office! I’ll just let the pictures speak for themselves!


After that I went over to Avon and there was a makeup artist there giving bloggers on the spot makeovers! They also had the full new line of makeup on display. I cant tell a lie. I wanted it all. The makeup junkie in me wanted to try every shade. I restrained myself and took some pictures instead.


One of the absolute coolest vendors that was there was the Madpax. These dino bags are insanely awesome and so different, which is just fantastic. My boy will LOVE this bag because he is just a cool kid like that :)


I also got an amazing swag bag in which I vlog about below:

I had a really great time at the back to school style with momtrends event, I saw my favorite bloggy girls and got to preview some really great products.

  6. Funny – I have never done back to school shopping but this is the first year I’ve even thought about it. I think the summer before kindergarten will REALLY be a big one, not that I’m admitting that’s on the horizon or anything. Fun event! Love the fun food – veggies in dip cups! – and I love the dino bag. Makes me wish I still lived closer to NY – I’d get to do cool stuff!

  7. The Office Candy booth, I would have died!!! I am obsessed with office supplies AND those are super cute with all the different colors. What a neat event. My baby is too young to be prepping for school but I would have totally been trolling that event because I adore back to school shopping.

  8. This looks like it was a blast. I want one of those bags for my son! And like you, all of the makeup too!

  10. That first image is fantastic! You are just a little PicMonkey genius!! This looked fun as usual. You have the most amazing opps as a mohter and blogger in Brooklyn. On this cooking class for kids, I’m blown away by all the opportunities for extra curricular activities and for what ages these days. My how things have changed from when we were growing up. I can only imagine what these well rounded children have in store for us 20 years from now.

  20. I’ve been picking up items here and there but I still have so much to prepare for. Luckily, although my children will be at the same school this year, they start on different days so I only have to focus on most of the supplies for my oldest. Back to school shopping has always excited me as a kid and I think I passed that off to my children. LOL!

    That water looks delicious!

    • The water was really yummy, I just kept going back for more. I totally wish I had the patience to cut up a ton of fruit for water.

  21. Thank you so much for attending the event!
