A couple of weeks ago, I was invited along with some of the most influential bloggers in the Travel industry to learn about the hottest summer trends. The Travel and Leisure event was held at the Short Hills Hilton in Short Hills, New Jersey. Even though the ride was over an hour, I was in the best company with Nancy Horn, blogger over at themamamaven.com. We had time to catch-up and make some fun insta-stories on our way from Queens. Thankfully, our trusted GPS took us on an uneventful journey and we made it to the event with time so spare.
The Hilton in Short Hills, New Jersey has such a 5 Star feeling. As soon as we parked in the enclosed parking lot, the ambiance and modern design of the lobby had us feeling like a million miles away from home. We were taken on a tour of some of the rooms as well. They are modern, spacious, and have all the modern amenities. You can even set-up your cell phone to open up your room.
I always try to make it a point to see friends I have met through my blogging experiences. It was so nice to see Kim Orlando, founder and creator of Traveling Mom and Scotty Reiss from She Buys Cars. They had the vision years ago to create a network of women online with travel content and the core. When I first started blogging, Kim gave me the opportunity to share my kosher travel experiences on travelingmom.com. I am forever grateful to her for that!
The event was very luxurious, with everything from travel items to beauty tips on site. Who doesn’t want to travel in style? Look at some of the sponsors and what they shared with us:
When I first came in, I had the chance to get some make-up and hair style tips from Antonio Berducci. I told her that I am forever looking for a make-up application that would make my eyes to stand out. She gave me some really full lashes. They were just the look I had been trying to achieve. I learned about some other travel tips and trends from some very stylish brands.
The atmosphere and décor at the Hilton Short Hills was clean, classy, and elegant. I had the opportunity to speak with the events team in more detail about kosher food options. I was please to know that they work with some of the best kosher caterers in the industry, including Foremost. They are no strangers to creating beautiful events with exceptional food presentation.
Did you know that there is also a spa at the Hilton Short Hills? I am so incredibly excited to check it out on my next visit. Yes, pinch me, I won a stay at this beautiful place and I will be spending the day at eforea spa. There is no shortage of rejuvenation to encounter. I can’t wait to indulge in a much needed soothing signature massage. Or, I might also try a revitalizing face or body treatment, designed exclusively for Hilton. The full-service hair and nail salon provides expert hairstyling, waxing, manicures and pedicures, perfect for the bride to be and her wedding party, right?eforea spa amenities include 13 private treatment rooms, an indoor heated swimming pool, luxurious changing lounges, thermal elements, full-service salon and a state-of-the-art fitness center with a movement studio. During the summer, an outdoor pool is available. The poolside dining space is ideal for large or small groups looking to enjoy a relaxing lunch, light snack or dinner.
