The weekend before Thanksgiving my oldest daughter and I had the fantastic opportunity to attend the KidzVuz event, FashionTweenstas. KidzVuz is one of ‘A”s favorite websites and mine too! I love it because it is a totally SAFE place for my daughter to hang out and be social with other children her age and she loves it because she gets to post video reviews of books, movies, clothes, apps etc. AND she gets to be social and interact with other kids on the web, something she loves. Seriously, if you have kids between the ages of 7-12 and you have not checked it out, they are really missing something cool and super fun! Rumor has it that there will be an KidzVuz app available in the very near future. ‘A’ has already warned me that she will be stealing my iPhone while we are out to make “videos on the spot”. She can’t wait. Oh, my little drama queen!!
So, when we were invited to get “Our Girl On” at the KidzVuz event both of us were very excited.
It was so great to have time with just ‘A’ and I. It seems like so much of our focus lately has been on middle school and tours, that it was nice for the two of us just to just get out on a Sunday and enjoy each other’s company. Without other distractions we were able to catch up and chat on the subway and on the walk over to the event. She is a pretty cool person to hang out with 😉 The event was held in a beautiful sun filled space with gorgeous decorations and lots of incredible booths to check out. ‘A’ was immediately drawn toward the Glitter Tattoo NY and spent time picking out her design.
While she was getting all glammed up, I toured many of the other tables, getting a lot of ideas for holiday gifts from Fashion Angels, Techlicious and Sparklehearts. The big hit for ‘A’ were the many cool items at the iScream table. She especially loved the cupcake pillow and their notebooks/journals. I thought these would be fabulous items for camp goodie bags. Must remember this in July!!
Next up, ‘A’ had a blast with Children’s Place designing her own mannequin. Such a fun idea. The girls loved picking out the clothes and best of all, the moms were not in charge of putting the clothes back =)
There was tons of fun to be had, but I was especially grateful for the awesome mom’s lounge. I may have sampled a drink or two and hung out in the wonderfully decorated area (by the very talented Amy Jacobs from Chandelier Events) and had some adult conversation. It was a much needed break from the giggling and excited chatter of all the happy tweens.
The FashionTweensta event was a great afternoon for both the tween and I. She loved all of the girlie activities and I appreciated the opportunity to see some fabulous women and check out some wonderful girl empowering products. Thank you KidzVuz, we really appreciated the opportunity to “get our girl on”. Most of all, we loved some mom and daughter bonding time.
And a PSA from me… get you and your kidz over to Kidzvuz now… what are you waiting for??? Go!
