Photography Tips & Yummy Foods At The Techlicious #CTAPhotoNYC Event

Disclosure: I was invited to attend this event as media. We all received a Tiffen Steadicam Volt for attending. All words and opinions are 100% my own.

I've always loved photography. I think it has something to do with my dad always handing me the camera and making me the official camera girl. No complains on my part, it was always great to be behind the lens and capture special moments. So a few days ago when I got to attend the Techlicious #CTAPhotoNYC event it was truly a dream come true.

As a mom and runner my number one concern is always comfort for my feet. After all they carry us around every day. It can be hard to find a shoe that looks good and offers the comfort that is needed to help carry us through the day. But who said you always have to give up looks for comfort. A few days ago I was introduced to the Fresh Foam Arishi by New Balance shoe and let me tell you that I'm not lying when I tell you that they haven't left my feet ever since.

Halloween Goodies From Oriental Trading

Disclaimer: As an Oriental Trading Brand Ambassador, I receive product for review purposes. As always all opinions and words are 100% my own.

One of the best parts of Halloween for me is seeing the kids all dressed up and saying Trick- or- Treat and the worst part is going somewhere when Trick-or-treating has just started and there is a sign that says all out of candy. No, I don't mean houses I mean store fronts, pharmacy store fronts to be exact. We spend so much money at certain places through out the year and to go on Halloween and see them not want to invest a little bit for the kids really is bad and has made me not shop at certain places anymore. Oriental Trading makes it very easy and affordable to buy candy or other fun goodies to give out on Halloween.

As a mom of two who does all the shopping and manages the household expenses, I'm always looking for ways to save money. Especially when Halloween comes around and it's time to buy the Halloween costumes. Costumes can cost as much as $60 and with two kids that would be about $120.00 for just two costumes. This year we decided to buy Valentina's Halloween Costume online at Oriental Trading.
