mommy and me

Whether or not you’re an art enthusiast, this newly launched art exhibition in partnership with NYC non-profit, Chashama Foundation, will have you doing double-takes.  Situated at the corner of Broadway and Exchange Place in New York City’s Financial District, Carole Feuerman’s hyperrealistic sculptures placed front and center near the entryway beg for a closer look.

A quick glance around and you realize there is a quirky swim theme.  “For me,” Ms. Fuerman reflects, “swimmers represent peace, serenity, and survival.”

Ladies fashioned in vintage swim caps and modest suits share a nonchalant “life’s a beach” sort of vibe that brings you back to your last vacation.

Wouldn’t these sculptures be so fun sitting on top of a resort pond or reflecting pool somewhere?

The paintings shared a vibrant, happy tone -something that Juliet could relate to. DSC_7549

Apparently though Carole Feuerman’s sculptures had achieved worldwide fame, this was the first time her paintings and prints were on view to the public.  I thought they were glorious and reminiscent of Andy Warhol’s pop art.

Perhaps the most surprising element to this FIDI art exhibit however was the lone man sitting in the corner seemingly watching us observe the female figurines.

He caught Juliet by surprise as she wondered out loud whether he was also a statue.  True to the artist’s form, she detailed out all the imperfections.  Here Juliet is pointing out his scuffed up sneakers saying maybe someone stepped on him.  hah

If you’re in the area and have a few minutes to spare, I highly suggest you check this out.  It’s a fun, break from the ordinary and makes you re-examine what you know to be true.   See the 3 top reasons to take your toddler to an art gallery here.   And follow us on Instagram to see our daily fashionable mommy and me adventures!

Juliet’s favorite color has been pink since the beginning of time.  So when I heard about Pietro Nolita, an all-pink restaurant in ..wait for it..Nolita, I just had to take her!  Though pink is not MY favorite color, I do love an Instagrammable scene and this one promised to be just that.  While waiting for friends to join us for lunch, we witnessed non-stop photo shoots outside the adorable, eye-catching facade and had to wait our turn to take these shots!

Little Juliet was so happy that mommy let her wear her pink princess Aurora costume for the occasion that she belted out princess songs to the surprise and joy of pedestrians turned adoring spectators.  Much to their delight (and the restauranteurs who happily watched the mini-princess dance, sing and perform during their meal, she did this all right outside their viewing and even popped in for a view herself!

The world is her stage!

We were overjoyed when our friends arrived and couldn’t wait to try out this intriguing place!

They loved discovering the library of pink books and pretended to read each one while we waited for our table.

It’s a teeny restaurant and they don’t take reservations but being that it feels so unique and special, it is definitely worth the wait!  This would be the perfect place to host a girly, 20-person private party (themed in pink of course), wouldn’t it?

With Italian pasta, salads, sandwiches and ROSE’ on the menu, it’s definitely a place that us moms AND kids could enjoy! Note – They serve breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner plus cocktails til 2am!)

We had a blast at this girly restaurant and we highly recommend it for pink and non-pink lovers alike!  For you pink lovers out there, you’ll be happy to know that they sell matching tee shirts with the quirky slogan, “pink as fuck.”

mommy and me, mommy and me manicures, milk n cookies, nyc kids, things to do with kids nyc

Being the girly girl that she is, Juliet loves manicures and My Little Pony.  So I knew she would have a blast at the limited time only, My Little Pony pop-up at Milk ‘N Cookies Kids’ Spa.  So she wouldn’t get totally spoiled with the spa treatment, I used it as a reward for getting 40 stamps on her new chart, a reward system I made up that includes getting stamps for things like: cleaning up, brushing her teeth, listening well, etc.  She was so proud of her achievement and excited to celebrate with our latest mommy and me adventure. Here she is picking out her nail color (blue and gold glitter)! I chose a light pink and a gold glitter topping for a rose gold mani effect.

The 1100 sq. ft. kids’ spa “features four hair stations, three manicure stations, two pedicure stations. In addition to haircuts, up-dos and washes, the spa services includes mani, pedis and fun facials.”  There are special treatments for boys, as well as mommy and me services too!  Being a huge sweet tooth, I loved the adorable dessert themed offerings like the flavored facials (think lemon, chocolate, strawberry and vanilla), scented “cookie crunch” haircuts and “gummy worm mud pie treatments.”  FUN, right?!?

Moms can rest assured that the kids’ spa nail polishes are organic and safe for kids.

Next up was the My Little Pony inspired ponytail hair styling!  Check out little Juliet getting the total glam treatment – rainbow streaks, glitter and all!

This was truly like a little girl’s dream come true.  Get your hair and nails done, AND walk away with one of your favorite toys too??

To top it off, we got to hang out, play with My Little Pony toys and watch some My Little Pony on their big screen while enjoying our complimentary cookie and milk.

It’s definitely a sweet spot that we’ll return to!  Already she is asking if we can go back to the spa..  better start collecting those stamps I tell her!  Fair warning, if you do decide to try a glittery, colored hairstyle like this, expect to come home and have to wash a bunch of things.  That evening, she left a glitter trail everywhere she went and left me having to wash our white -turned-pastel-sofa slipcovers.  It was like My little Pony came and sprinkled her fairy dust all over our house…  try at your own risk!

If you’re looking for an off-the-beat, unique art experience in NY, the gallery at the Cadillac House is a must-see!  For Instagram addicts, this is THE fantasy selfie station.  With all sorts of wacky backdrops including fish wallpaper, crocodile statues, and spaghetti floors, it’ll have you posing and preening in all the nooks and crannies of its psychedelic space!  We loved it because not only did it spur a fantastical imagination, it was interactive!  What child doesn’t want to touch and feel?  This pop-up apartment envisioned by Ferrari and Cattelan encourages you to explore and more!  Here is Juliet jumping on the bed and playing Cinderella by vacuuming the floors!!

And just like with any other apartment, this one required a lot of household chores.  We started our day getting ready at the vanity, then found dirty laundry sitting on the bathroom floor, a kitchen with dinner uncooked, and hungry pets to feed.

With so much to do around the house, you might just need to, lounge and call a friend from the comforts of your colorful bed.

IMG_1096IMG_1071

Needless to say, this was SUCH a fun place for her and I to play pretend.  We went after school pick up (around 1:30pm) on a weekday and were the only ones there!  I highly suggest going during the weekday with your kids to fully enjoy the space.  After you’re done, you can treat yourself to a little something at the beautiful cafe that they have and also browse the latest Cadillac models!   IMG_1097 IMG_1098

What a fun mommy and me outing this was!  Click here for more of our fashionable adventures around the city!

The exhibition was made possible through creative media agency Visionaire and Toiletpaper MagazineFerrari and Cattelan are co-creators of the latter. Toiletpaper Paradise runs through April 12 and is free to the public.

If you’ve read my past post about the 3 top reasons to take a toddler to an art gallery, you know we love frequenting them!  Today, after school, we enjoyed another artsy adventure, this time closer to our home, in Tribeca.  R & Company on 82 Franklin (between Church and Broadway) is a 2-floor, narrow unassuming space that you’d miss easily if not looking specifically for it.  Step inside though and you’ll be greeted with playful bursts of color and sculptures that beg you to reach out and touch them.  As soon as Juliet stepped in, she screamed in delight, “Mommy this place looks like so much FUN!”

And indeed it was!  The tactile surfaces were fun to explore and luckily, this gallery encouraged not only feeling the exhibits but also sitting, climbing and exploring in them!

DSC_6964

Yes, the artist’s name is actually “Porky Hefer…”

Isn’t this such a wonderous place for a child to enjoy art?

DSC_6956 DSC_6952

It inspires such curiosity and imagination!

DSC_6897“Each piece is meant to be inhabited like a hermit inhabits shells.” He encourages visitors to curl their bodies into the playful, human-scaled shells and nests, or to drape themselves languidly over the leopard’s branch.

Downstairs, though was where Juliet’s favorite pieces were.  She got such a kick out of the coin couch because we were just teaching her the value of coins.  “I wonder how the artist made this!” And so we discussed possibilities and she determined, “glue!” haha

DSC_6917

Johnny Swing‘s iconic coin works have been exhibited in museums and institutions around the world. Swing, who is considered a master welder and craftsman, has developed a unique patterning technique that utilizes flat shiny coins to create furniture works. His innovative approach successfully transforms these industrial found coins into biomorphic and natural forms that transcend their material. (excerpt from the exhibit’s website)

Coins certainly take on a whole new value in the mind of this tiny toddler!

Juliet’s other favorite find was this fuzzy little beast.  When it was time to go, she said, “but I LOVE him!!”  So I let her stay for a bit and she spent the remaining minutes, cuddling and kissing this crazy fur creature.  “Wait! 3 more hugs!” she exclaimed as motioned for us to go.DSC_6940

If you’re in the NY area, I highly recommend R and Company.  This intimate art gallery will only take you 30minutes of your time depending on how many selfies you take 🙂 and is great to explore with kids!  We went on a Monday afternoon and were the only ones in there!  Woohoo! This exhibit is open until February 23rd.

I purposely opted not to enroll Juliet in school on Fridays so we would have the freedom to take long weekend getaways or get to sleep in and enjoy mommy and me city adventures.  This is the last year we will have after all, before she has to attend school regularly M-Fri.  While the weather is still nice here in New York, we like to go out and explore all of New York’s offerings.  There’s so much to see and do and Times Square is one of the many locales that offers so much in terms of attractions, shopping and now art!  I’m excited to share with you, “The Beginning of the End,” an interactive and reflective monument in the heart of Times Square’s Broadway Plaza (between 46th and 47th streets).  It asks visitors to “reassess their perspective on an entirely different visual reality, how they see themselves in the environment that surrounds them, and how that relationship changes as the reflections create new visual possibilities.”

times square, nyc kid, nyc art, nyc, broadway plaza dsc_3505

Seeing Times Squares skyscrapers and flashing lights multiplied through all the mirrors was pretty spectacular!  If you’re in the area, you have to see this while you can.  It’s only around for another week (website says it closes down Nov 21st).  Who knows, it might just inspire a little dancing in the streets!

times square, nyc kid, nyc art, nyc, broadway plaza dsc_3535

It encourages even the most jaded New York-ers to look up, and really look around to appreciate the magnificent skyline and energy of the city.  We are so lucky to live in this vibrant place.

I just wish Cuban artist Rachel Valdés Camejo could see all the joy she brought to the heart of this city through her art.  It brought smiles and such joy to tourists and NY-ers alike!

dsc_3530

Tips for parents:

  1. Nearby restrooms can be found at McDonald’s across the street
  2. The Disney store (which also has a restroom on the 2nd floor),  and the Hello Kitty TS store are great stops before/after
  3. There are tons of family-friendly restaurants nearby, (Carmine’s for Italian and Ellen’s Stardust Diner for dinner with a show are my top picks)
  4. Dave and Buster’s is at 234 W 42nd St, 3rd Floor
  5. Hershey’s Times Square is at 1593 Broadway
  6. Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! is at 234 W 42nd Street
  7. Midtown Comics is at 200 West 40th Street
  8. You’ll see lots of opportunities to snap photos of your child with costumed characters found along the streets of Times Square (think Mickey, Minnie, Elmo, Hello Kitty and superheroes) but beware, you will be expected to tip!

Where else would you recommend hitting in the heart of Times Square?

misaki kawai, cave life

I love art and so does Juliet.  We’ve enrolled her in art classes since age 18months and she has happily and proudly made her own art at various school settings and at home ever since!  She often comes running over to us at school pick-up excitedly telling us, “I made this for YOU!!” And we’ve already collected a mountain of her artwork, turning our fridge and sometimes her playhouse into a virtual art gallery.  One way we’ve encouraged her love of art is to take her to art galleries around the city.  Here are the 3 main reasons galleries are great places to take a toddler. 

misaki kawai, cave life

  1. It’s a mommy and me outing that doesn’t SUCK.  There comes a time (usually weekly) where you’ve had enough of the playgrounds and indoor play pits.  Anyone relate to this?  Kids running around, crying and screaming while your mind goes numb and you look into your phone as your only outlet for parental pleasure…  Sometimes you need to mix it up!  Take your kids to a kid-friendly art gallery for some education and culture that feeds both your minds and souls.  How many times can you say you left inspired after leaving the playground?? misaki kawai, cave life
  2. Experience the culture without the overwhelm.  Toddlers (and plenty of adults) have short attention spans.  Instead of trying to cover an entire museum in one day in order to try and get your money’s worth,  (after all you could be forking over $20 admission at a famed NYC museum), you can expect to dedicate anywhere from 10minutes to a half an hour at a gallery for free while feeling the same accomplishment and satisfaction of having completed an artsy, worthwhile experience.  Small doses feel manageable.  Avoid the overwhelm and ensure yourself a happy toddler.misaki kawai, cave life
  3. It encourages curiosity and creativity.  Win mommy of the week award (if there ever was such a thing) by enriching your child’s life with the joy of exploration, curiosity AND creativity.  Juliet actually told me the other day at our last gallery outing, “Mommy, I love going on adventures with you.  this is so exciting!”  You never know what you may find!  In today’s case, we found an all yellow room, with fun painted furniture in the shape of bananas, snakes and bones.  The large-scale paintings, and wall murals seemed straight out of a child’s imagination.  Juliet immediately related and was quick to tell me about her favorite finds.cave life, nyc art, nyc art gallery, 312 bowery, the hole

If you’re interested in checking out this sunny space, go to 312 Bowery to a gallery space named “The Hole” before this “Cave Life” exhibit by Misaki Kawai ends on October 30th.  Note that it is only open Wednesday – Sunday 12pm-7pm and is by the Bleeker Street 6 train and Broadway-Lafayette B, D, F and M trains.

It promises to bring out the kid in all of us.  Juliet and I went home and continued to talk about what we saw and even tried to replicate some of the artwork at home!

panda, panda love, panda room, 29 rooms

These days with the social media craze, it seems like everyone is searching for the latest and greatest and most Instagram-able moments.  Refinery 29 understands this inherently and has created Refinery ’29 Rooms’ to draw us all into their creative, fashionable world.  “29Rooms brings to life a lot of the themes Refinery29 covers in its digital content to a physical space, said Piera Gelardi, co-founder and executive creative director of Refinery29. “We live in an increasingly digital world, so people want to have memorable experiences, but they also want to be able to share them with their digital friends,”  As a former brand director, who created press-worthy integrated marketing campaigns, I found this immersive branding concept so up my alley and couldn’t wait to explore everything!  Since I had a VIP pass to 29 rooms, I knew I could skip the crazy long lines and bring Juliet along for the adventure and I’m soooo glad I did!

The transformed 80,000-square-foot warehouse felt like a cool, artsy maze with which you could weave your way in and out constantly discovering colorful new reasons to smile.

refinery 29 rooms

I loved how Juliet perked up at the sight of each cool new fantastical room.

29 rooms 2016, 29 rooms by refinery29

Each showcased, design, style, beauty, art, and even technology in the coolest, weirdest and unexpected ways.  But what topped our list as the most memorable rooms were the interactive ones!  Most were super kid-friendly like the ones that encouraged writing on the walls…hoping Juliet doesn’t get used to this bright idea…

And we totally enjoyed getting goofy and making art with our bodies!dsc_0794

29 rooms brooklyn, 29 rooms 2016

Our top 4 favorite rooms out of the 29 rooms however were:  Celebrate You, Wig Wonderland, Texture room, and the Panda room!

I loved the Papyrus sponsored Celebrate You room for obvious reasons.  I’m a party planner after all and I live by the self-made motto, “celebrate the everyday in style.”  So this confetti filled room enveloped in party supplies had me in my happy place!  Juliet yelped, “it’s like a party in here!” And it sure was!

papyrus room, 29 rooms

We posed for silly GIF photos and threw endless confetti around ‘cuz that’s what you do in a party palace.  All mommy needed was some rose’ to really make it a party on this blistery hot day!

refinery 29 rooms

Juliet’s favorite (cuz she adores dress up) was what I like to call the wig wonderland.  Juliet loved trying on each whimsical wig and guests couldn’t stop taking selfies of themselves here!  The social shares here must be through the roof!  Apparently Ru Paul collaborated on this room hence, his famous saying lit up for all the world to see, ‘you better WORK!”  Juliet came back to this room for a 2nd time it was that good!

rupaul wig, refinery 29, refinery 29 rooms9-9-001

The next room was filled with textural surprises.  Juliet and I explored, danced, laughed and played in it for far longer than warranted.  You just never know what will inspire a toddler, I guess! She started playing around with the fur as if it were Rapunzel’s long locks flowing from the top of her head and me?  Well I just sort of got danced around getting my groove back!

refinery 29 room installation 9-9-003

Last but not least, the room we both were obsessed with was the Panda room!

 

29 rooms

dsc_0873

Having seen this room all over Instagram before coming, I knew to pack Juliet’s panda fashions. So out came her Gymboree panda shirt and matching shoes.  The artist and staff loved her outfit so much that they insisted Juliet take home one of the coveted but never given away, blow-up pandas that you see here.  What a souvenir!!  She was honored!  THANK YOU!

29 rooms

Braving the heat wave was worth it just for this Instagram-able room by Nicopanda.  Everyone was frantically snapping up a storm in here, knowing soon their time would be up and they’d have to stop sinking deliriously into this panda pit and return to reality.  This truly immersive art project will not soon be forgotten!

If you’re in the NY area, it’s worth a visit!  Just know that typically lines are at least an hour wait so be prepared!

When: September 9 through 11, from 12 to 8 p.m.
Where: 8 Ingraham Street, Brooklyn, NY

For more photos (so many to share, so little space!), follow me @fabgabblog on FB, Instagram and Twitter where I’ll be posting scenes from more rooms!

We had so much fun here and hope this post put a little joy in your day!  Please leave a comment!

There’s something about ending a summer with a white party that I just love.  I’ve been hosting these Kids’ White parties for 3 years now and they just get bigger and better each year.  This year, with Mialandyn’s cool kids’ teepees in mind, I titled the party, Summer Glamp and found the perfect venue for our glamping theme.  180 Maiden Lane has this beautiful atrium space with an indoor lawn, palm trees, and tree stump stools.  It was the perfect place to go glamp!  It was like being surrounded by the beautiful outdoors while being shielded from any unwanted outdoor elements -no mosquitos, wind and hair frizz!

white party

The venue had me so inspired, I became a poet when I didn’t even know it!  Here was the invite, written by me and designed by Little Web Writing Hood who is helping me re-design this blog as we speak!

Guests who arrived first, won door prizes and were greeted by our glamping guitarist who sang and filled the room with her beautiful voice. Campfire chats and singalongs, anyone?

DSC_9793

Decor consisted of these white teepees which I decorated with crystals and hid fun finds for the kids inside.  Kids found fashion-forward books with titles like ‘Shoe La La” (one of Juliet’s favorites) and balloons.

To further achieve this glamp scene, I secured campfire toys like a smores marshmallow Playset from Playvisions, and campfire props by Props In a Box.

As moms mingled and browsed the sponsor tables, they were sure to bump into the friendly Mialandyn Events who was on-site providing tips on how to create a similar luxe look for your next party.  Her table attracted hungry snack-ers who could find waterfall water, camp critter cookies, trail mix, and smores flavored cookies.

There was laughter and joy everywhere.  My face actually hurt from smiling and adoring all these minifashionistas all day!

After getting all dolled up, guests were encouraged to meet with casting and production agency NYDK Talent as well as Toddlewood who were on-site meeting and greeting with our insta-famous mini-models in the making.  Toddlewood is currently casting to re-create an Obama family photo so reach out to her if you know lookalikes!  NYDK is constantly helping to cast for top clients including: Gap, Huggies, Old Navy, and more so if you didn’t get the chance at our event to get your picture taken with her, make sure you submit headshots ASAP!

Kidpik, the fashionable kids’ clothing subscription service for girls sized 4-14 was raffling off a fashion set as well as giving away trendy iron on patches in the goody bags and offering free face-painting.  The waitlist for this was endless and the creativity unmatched! DSC_9819

The Glamping guitarist provided by Pine Street Music Studio which offers kids’ music lessons (think piano, guitar, violin or mommy and me classes) really added to the atmosphere and I can’t thank Lea enough for being such an amicable partner.  white party, nyc white partySpecial thanks also goes out to our goody bag sponsors Colleen Rothschild Skincare, Jamberry Nails, and Chaise Fitness!  Until Monday, September 12th, you can all get 20%off any regular priced Colleen Rothschild Skincare product with code ‘GAB20.”
