Kids cooking up Cracker Barrel at home

What better way to start your day than to have your two seasoned 6 year old twin chefs prep you breakfast straight out of the recipe of Crackebarrel! http://shop.crackerbarrel.com 

Yes! Cracker Barrel delivers a bundle box to your address with freeze packs, fresh products and easy to make instructions on the box. When you can’t make it to Cracker Barrel they can make it to you! 

Living in NYC makes it hard for us to enjoy this delicious restaurant menu but we are super excited to now bring these ingredients to our own kitchen. 


Had a BASH at BBNYC

This year marks the first bbnyc Blogger bash NYC for Bash! It was quite different having a singleton on arm to mingle,  meet new brands and learn all about the fun new products happening at sweet suite 17 but at the same time he was the perfect little personality to have accompany me. 

We visited Zulily’s photo shoot booth; which included bubbles and fun photographers. http://www.zulily.com/ I love how they were able to be apart of suite sweet for everyone. 


Now….. throughout this huge area at the piers we scope out some of our favorite things that I’d like to share. 

1. ✨Simplay3 the brand that started tikes; ride alongs , durable amazing products have now started the next stage of baby gear. We are in love with everything featured at BBNYC (especially the helmet ride along)  and know that there are more things to come. ✨ http://www.simplay3.com/


2. We had to visit V & K’s favorite snack pops booth http://www.yumearth.com/ we know that all sugar can be created equal but yum earths pops get a pass especially when they’re incorporating other nutritious snacks for your kiddies.

3. http://www.bixbee.com/ Was listed as one of the top choices to visit for bags and lunch boxes. I was so happy that we were able to visit them and learn more about their mission.  Backpacks that embrace the imagination and give back. 


4. http://www.kangaroomfg.com/ Was loaded with fun reps in butterfly floaters and emoji madness! We loved them so much we had to share with an unboxing clip. 

5. Saving the best for last because as a mom of 3 you never know when you’re going to have to make your own anything or mend something quickly.  This is where the 3doodler comes in. Three D Perfection! 

We will be sharing more fun things that sweet suite had to offer! So much 2 share 


Twins in the kitchen prepping more than Food

Is it ever too early to ask your children what would you like to be in the future? Well,  how about NO the answer is no and in fact it is probably the best thing to begin asking them as early as 4 years old,  While you’re at it take lots of notes and begin researching as soon as your kiddo responds with an answer.  V & K have been consistent with their future plans…maybe a tinker change here or there but clearly their futures will include a business owned together and some form of beauty and entertainment to help people feel beautiful.  This is why when given the opportunity to experience a kids chef for the day at the ICE Culinary education center, in collaboration with the NYS 529 Education planning professionals we had to attend.

That is a double dosage Twindollicious style load of information along with experiences to get a jump start on making those future goals closer to reality.

Did you know that when parents of multiples begin the application process for their children their finances are automatically viewed as cut in half which allows for qualification to assistance if needed?

Also did you ever wonder how much debt USA is in student loans? Over 1 trillion dollars.  I’ll say that a perfect way to lower this deficit is by starting a 529 plan. How about contacting a representative to guide you through the easy 1,2,3 step process.

We were so over joyed with all of the positive information that each child now has a NYS 529 plan that can be used for College (Universities) or any Professional school; such as culinary school….which by the looks of V & K’s experience will be here before we know it.

 

Lemons to lemonade

Hey!

Today I thought I’d share some fun pics that include a bump date and how much the girls are excited to be becoming big sisters…as well as how humbly blessed I am to be on this journey in life. 

When Twindollicious started it all came to me at a time where I knew there was a fun message to share with many people about twins.  I wanted to share our personal experience as well as some fun facts that most twins experience in their lives.  I knew that there was a message to share but didn’t expect to be helping families; sibling bonds and others on the path to creating stories or businesses of their own. As a business; I can say Twindollicious has developed from fun.  Whether we are enjoying collaborations with others or feeling creative… It’s all wrapped up into one lifestyle. 

Now almost 3 years later a life changing experience has come along with all of these opportunities. We’re adding a little boy to meet the world of Twindollicious and couldn’t be more anxious and excited! 

As I enter the last trimester of pregnancy our calendar fills with meetings and deadlines that needed to be fulfilled…. And heck I’ll humbly do so.  Because prior to having a voice to share stories on sibling bonding, confidence, writing, and the life of an independent mom-preneur there was a question of ….”ok I love children, they like me , I love to help people; now how can I add my life skills and knowledge of behaviors to allow everyone to share their story”. 

We will be sharing talks at domestic violence seminar, attending a woman’s entrepreneur conference and sharing some goodies at a vintage gallery within the next couple of weeks and can’t wait to share details with everyone.

5 Ways To Show Up Everyday For Your Team

Being on a great team matters, Whether you’re running  your own business,  work with a virtual team from home, or in large corporation – what matters most is that your team shows up! 

-A great team consists of a group of beings (newborns, toddlers, pets, adults, family) that show up for the reasons daily – mostly for the excitement to see a new day together.

– A great team enters a room (virtually, or personally) insync, with everyone watching and alert for the first steps.

– A great team will spend their time being creative. Using their strengths to teach each other while showing up with new ideas.

Success is achieved by doing what you love

Success will be achieved by doing what you love and not what you’re good at

I heard this statement a few weeks ago and immediately knew that it was meant for me. You see, I believe that everyday is a learning experience… We may take lessons away from just being in every moment.  Since hearing this from a successful business man himself (which happened to have been told to him by his MOM – those women I tell you) I felt the need to share it with someone else whom may be reading this right now. 

Planning your career and life goals takes place in many phases. You may be the person who’s always known their career path or you may be the person that dabbles into everything without passion until one day it hits you. Perhaps you are that person who planned career based on your skills and what you do best. You may have been complimented on a job done well and choose that as your career path…., but realize one day that you are not in love.  You’re not in love with the money, the job or the rate of emotional return. So what do you do? I’ve had moments in the past where I reminisce on passions that have gone away – until that one day the accumulation of passions made sense into one career path, during the day I decided to take a break, SIT and BREATHE.   The leap into action was to develop a brand that I love based on a lifestyle that I love! While most importantly encouraging others and producing products that I’ve always loved – and thankfully ( “WOW” )others love as well :):)

If you’re faced with making the decision on hooding your business, family and career goals based on what you LOVE, remember LOVE always wins, success will follow. 

Please share your thoughts on success and love with others. Speak about it or start by commenting below and remember to spread kindness, be an individual, embrace partnerships with friends, family and business because Any two can be…. 

List your success and start from there –

I became a mom = mompreneur 





Rockstar sisters !!

Part 1 of a Child’s business plan

‘Twas the night before the first (full) day of school and mommy’s head was filled with worries while TwinDollicious sisters V & K calmly slept in their beds….. This has seriously been the most worrisome time in our little lives; at least for me it has. The girls have been prepped through play, conversation and separation with Music class for months; but when the big day comes we’re all nervous deep down inside.
Some how their morning begins a lot like I had visioned them to be…. Getting ready for school together, doing mirror checks with matching outfits and reminding each other of their teachers and new friends names (at 3 1/2).
With Their 5 day a week busy schedule and extracurricular events I’ve turned to reading a great book during my morning skypes and phone conferences. I’ll fill you all in on the great pointers as I highlight the goodies like EX: The first 4 years of a child’s life molds them to the greater years. The TwinDollicious lifestyle brand and stories would have never been a dream that I could fulfill without the birth of V & K. So as we grow, create new stories, designs, friendships priorities will always be for them to lead happy, sibling loving, successful lifestyles TOGETHER :):)
