Tristin + Tyler's Threads: Loud Apparel FW 2016

I can't believe it's Thanksgiving already. It's truly one of my favorite holidays and the boys and I have been planning our outfits so we have enough room to fit ALL THE FOOD! The boys decided to rock these awesome sweatshirts from Loud Apparel. Super cozy with enough room for the belly to expand! :)   You know we are BIG supporters of Loud (check out this and this!) because of their creativity and quality, and each season they NEVER disappoint. 

I love the"Bla Bla Blah" on these shirts -- perfect because all the boys will be doing this holiday season is eating, no time for chatting!  Make sure to check out the latest from Loud Apparel and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Threads: KITH X RUGRATS

Tyler, Ronnie Fieg and Tristin

Tyler, Ronnie Fieg and Tristin

I use men's fashion to influence what Tristin + Tyler wear all the time. I love taking bits and pieces from this runway show, or that style influencer on Instagram. I was so excited to be invited to KITH NYC in Brooklyn, one of the hottest spots for sneaker lovers and "street style" obsessed guys and gals, for the launch of their collaboration with Nickelodeon's Rugrats!  Love the bright colors of the pieces and seeing the faces of my fave Rugrats Angelica and Timmy on clothing and accessories, the boys were ecstatic!

Ronnie Fieg is owner of the KITH brand, and I love his story. He was born and raised in Queens and took what he was most nostalgic about and made an explosive brand out of it.  I've been following Ronnie and KITH for a while, and I'm so glad he's invested in kids style.  Not only did he start KITH but also KITH Treats so you can indulge in your favorite cereals from when you were a kid! We'll see if we can go behind the scenes of KITH Treats on What's Up, CIty Kid?!

Take a look at the pics from the event, the new collection and a few other pieces we love below and make sure to check out the KITH X RUGRATS collection!

Tristin + Tyler's Threads: Butter Super Soft

I'm not a big fan of the cold, but having really cozy, soft sweats really makes it all do-able. This weekend the boys and their cousin Madison (whose missing a ton of teeth SO CUTE!) spent a ton of time outside playing basketball, throwing themselves in piles of leaves and crafting wearing Butter Super Soft.

This brand understands what day-to-day basics for kids should feel and look like, and all of their pieces wash well which is a huge bonus for me! Whether the boys are layering their tees and hoodies for school or Madison wears a full comfy sweatsuit on a play-date, this brand knows comfortable.  You've gotta check them out here

Stay cozy!

Tristin + Tyler's Threads: KAMIK

Nothing is more fun than spending a Sunday hanging out with family over hot chocolate, ice skating and beautiful views. Getting a pair of winter boots from Kamik was a HUGE cherry on top!  Kamik is a Canadian brand of footwear and their motto is #StepOutside because there is basically no such thing as bad weather, just bad footwear. I love that concept, especially as a New Yorker who is constantly on the go and can't be slowed down by rain, sleet or snow! 

Also, as a mom who has always taught Tristin + Tyler about taking care of the planet and recycling (check out this and this for some laughs), I love that Kamik produces sustainable products.

You'll be seeing a lot more Kamik on this website! To check out more on your own, visit Kamik here!

Tristin + Tyler Featured In: batteryPOP's SQUARE OFF

So excited to share a fun project Tristin + Tyler worked on that's now live on one of the coolest sites for kids: batteryPOP!  It's hard reining kids in when it comes to them using technology, and even harder to make sure they are on age-appropriate sites, so I have been a big fan of this platform since inception. All of the videos are age appropriate and definitely fun as the site was started by two former Nickelodeon employees!

We were so excited to be asked to be a part of batteryPOP's new game show SQUARE OFF! We don't want to give it all away so check out the videos HERE and have the kiddos play along. Also make sure to check out batteryPOP and subscribe on YouTube!

Cool Kid Chronicles: Emilee Madison

So excited to bring back our blog feature COOL KID CHRONICLES!  We think kids are smart, determined and creative so we want to share their stories. Tristin + Tyler interview so many adults, it's time to hear from the kids!  We began CKC back in 2014 and just did one feature, so we are so ready to start it up again!

First up, meet 11 year-old Emilee Madison - she swims, plays soccer, dances and more. We actually met her years ago during Tristin + Tyler's photo shoot as brand ambassadors for Rocawear Kids!  See if you can catch Emilee in this video -- they were all so little then. :)

Learn more about Emilee below and be sure to follow her on Instagram: @emilee_madison!

1. Tell us what sports you play?   I am a competitive swimmer.  Ive been swimming since I was 4. I swim on three teams.  I also play soccer and I used to be a competitive dancer but I had to give it up because there was not enough time to do it all. I like being part of a team because we work together and we are there for each other.  Being part of a team builds a strong friendship with everyone.  When i win it feels good to share it with everyone knowing we did out best as a group.

2. What do you love about  modeling? I like modeling because I get to meet a lot of new friends and represent a lot of great brands.   

3. How long have you been modeling?  I started modeling when I was 4.  For my first shoot I flew to Texas representing Servane Barrau.  I became friends with Servane Barrau's daughter during that shoot, and we are still friends to this day.  

4. What's your favorite place to hang out in NYC?  I love New York City its my hometown.  I'm such a city girl.  Manhattan is my favorite place to hang out.  My favorite places are the top of the Freedom Tower and the Museum of Natural History. 

5. What do you want to be when you grow up?  When I grow up I want to be an engineer or a doctor.

6. If you could have one super power what would it be and why?  If I could have one super power, it would be to create my own powers.  That way I could use whatever power was needed to help in any situation.

7. What apps are on your phone? Which is your favorite?  The apps on my phone are Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube, Oovoo, Color Switch, iBooks and more. My fave is Snapchat because I can keep in touch, make streaks and have a story to tell what I'm doing. I also love playing with the filters.

8. What's your favorite emoji? My favorite emojis are the dog, the person swimming and the devil.

9. What's your favorite Tristin + Tyler video?  I love all of Tristin and Tyler's videos, especially the ones that deal with food.  

10. What's your favorite subject in school?  My favorite subjects are social studies, Robotics, lunch and PE. 

Special Thanks to Emilee and her amazing mom Staci, for coming out on a chilly Saturday morning to hang with us! xoxoxo

Halloween Yacht Party with TICKLE WATER

We love being one of the first to find out about cool new products, and then sharing it with the world! It's our job, isn't it? Well, we never want to disappoint, so say hello to Tickle Water, sparkling water for kids (and adults!). We were invited to a fun Halloween-themed party on a yacht to celebrate the launch of this unique brand. We are big fans already!

Love the packaging, the flavors and the fizz. The brand was created by mom Heather McDowell to encourage kids to drink water with a bit of a "tickle" for kids throats. Genius! If you have a kid that doesn't like to drink water, this may be your ticket! Check out a few pictures from the event below and then check out where you can find the product here.
