Baby Alpaca, Warm & Cozy

Being in London makes me want to snuggle up with something warm & cozy. I travel wearing a light gray Baby Alpaca zip up hoodie by YOGiiZA, which is great for going from warm weather in Miami to the cooler temperatures in London. My favorite is a Baby Alpaca Blanket for home or on the airplane. We sell these beautiful blankets to luxury hotels and will add them to the website for online sales soon. Have your tried baby alapaca, which is softer and more cozy than wool or cashmere?

Traveling Mom

I just arrived to London. This will be my longest trip away from my 2 year old Robbie (5 nights / 6 days). At this stage, Robbie understands everything we say. I tell him ahead of time that I am going away on the airplane for a few days and that I always come back. That’s my motto, that I always come home. He understand the words, and asks “RaRa Plane?”. I reply, No, Sweetie, This time just Mommy is going away, but I always come home. He isn’t happy and it seems he is more attached to me the rest of the day after I broke the news. On the way to the airport, he asks again, “RaRa Plane?” and cries when I leave him behind. And when we speak today he seems upset that I'm not there.

Traveling Mom

Traveling for business as a mom of a 14 month old isn't easy. I'm writing this as I arrive in London for the Conde Nast Local Experts Conference. In the days leading up to the trip in addition to packing, I am also preparing all of Robbie's things. I do a full run through Wholefoods to stock up on enough snacks and easy to make meals; I clean and organize all of the bottles & Sippy cups and snacks; I even prepare a detailed document on schedule, foods, likes and dislikes. It's not that his Dad doesn't know all of these things, but it makes me feel a lot better to be organized about it.
