Burton kids' Riglet Board Snowboard
Influencer Central received some samples from Burton to facilitate this post. All opinions are our own. We’ve started to see our first signs of snow here in the Northeast already. Despite making for a potentially messier wintry commute, this time of year is really exciting, because that means it’s almost time to partake in our favorite winter sports! Mountains in the Northeast have already opened up for the season, and I’m excited to plan my first snowboarding trip of the season! Spending time on the mountains is one of my favorite winter pastimes. The feeling of starting your day taking in the fresh mountain air (and fresh powder!) is exhilarating. I can’t wait for the season to start each year. This year I’m even more excited to start the season, as we got the chance to try out some of the best snowboarding gear from Burton for moms and our little ones! If you’re thinking about starting to teach your little one how to snowboard this year, be sure to check out all the learning gear that Burton has to offer.

Holiday Season Travel Style with Zappos
Influence Central received samples to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own. Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and with it we’re in the holiday season. The day before Thanksgiving is consistently THE busiest travel day of the year in the US, so whether you are traveling by car, train or plane, I'm sure you are starting to prep for the big day. ‘Tis the season! I always want to be comfortable when I travel, but also don't want to completely sacrifice style in the process. I love seeing the glamorous photos of air travel from the 1960s. While things have changed a bit and dressing to the nines is no longer practical or realistic, traveling is still an exciting event that we don’t need to save for our sweatpants and old tees. Many top designers are creating pieces that will help us stay comfortable while still looking chic – and it just takes a little pre-planning to find an outfit that will keep travel well!

Project Gravitas Diana Dress
Disclosure: Stacy DeBroff received a complimentary dress from Project Gravitas to facilitate this review. All opinions expressed here are her own. As women and Moms, we know that our true self-worth comes from within – that we all have the power to live the life we’ve imagined if we truly believe in ourselves. Even so, we’ve all experienced times when what we wore helped give us that little extra boost – the suit we splurged on that gave us a jolt of confidence on an important job interview, the cocktail dress we wore out to dinner on a milestone birthday, or the snappy skirt and boots we wore to chair our first volunteer committee meeting. When we feel comfortable and confident in how we present ourselves to the outside world, we can focus solely on our ideas, our conversations, and our overall experience in that moment. Project Gravitas understands this feeling, which forms the basis for its
