The Travel in Style

Last month I attended an awesome Travel event hosted by the super stylish new company, Baby Cargo.  Along with co-sponsors, The Peninsula Hotel, and Citrus Lane, I learned about the The Travel in Style Contest which is running now through April 27th, 2012.  

Mingling for a late brunch in the Peninsula Hotel, I was instantly drawn to the cool new strollers in the corner.  I walked over to hear more and was blown away from the descriptions!  The lightweight travel strollers are all prices affordably.  The 100, 200, and 300 series are all under 15 lbs.  They have various opitons and featrues depending on the model you are looking at.  The colors are all very tonal and sleek. You will not see a pop of blinding turquiose or hot pink.  The owner feels this is already being done in the market place and she strives to bring a new level of “coolness” to moms!  The cup holder is genius on the strollers and the diaper bag was by far the best part.  You will not see a $400 diaper bag from Baby Cargo.  Their bag is only $49!  The way it slips on the handles is incredible! The attention to detail on these stroller is truly amazing.. you will find hidden zippers here and there.  Be sure to keep an eye out for this new line of strollers and accessories!!

Citrus Lane was also on hand to show off their latest “boxes”.  Citrus Lane is a modern subscription e-commerce company that ‘s focused on getting awesome, healthy, useful and fun products to young families!  Their latest box contained items from Itzy Ritzy, ZoLi, Ella’s Kitchen and Weleda.  Very cool!

I should also mention beautiful Peninsula Hotel! If you know of anyone coming to NYC with kids, this is definitely a great place to stay.  The hotel is located in the heart of Midtown and offers a variety to family friendly services.  The staff will provide cribs, bottle warmers, child-size robes and slippers, and kid friendly menus.  If you feel like eating outside of the hotel, they concierge will be delighted to give advice on baby friendly restaurant or help you find the best parks for children!

After viewing the must-have travel products…. it’s just one more reminder of all the things you need to travel with a little one!  Bubble Bum is a great new booster seat that receives high safety ratings for children 4 and over! I always travel with California Baby and never use anything other than this!  For babies, Diaper Buds are probably the best invention in the world!

Parents are invited to enter “The Travel in Style”by sharing their best or worst travel experiences.  Once an entry is submitted and approved it will be on FaceBook.  The entry with the most “likes” will win the Grand Prize.  On the final day 9 runners up will win a Baby Cargo stroller and one lucky winner will receive a deluxe Travel in Style package worth over $5,000 that included products from all of the Travel in Style partners, airfare and a two-night stay at The Peninsula Hotel in New York.  Thanks to trumpeting media for including me in this fun event!
