What is #BeachesMoms – Beaches Turks & Caicos

What is Beaches Moms #BeachesMoms

If you’ve been looking at my Facebook or Instagram, you’ll know that I’ve been using the #BeachesMoms hashtag a lot lately. It’s because I’m so excited to be going to the Social Media on the Sand conference at the lovely Beaches Turks and Caicos Resort Villages and Spa. Social Media on the Sand is an invitation-only, social media conference held at Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages & Spa for key social media influencers.  Attendees will sharpen their social media skills during this immersive and completely unique event through inspiring and empowering sessions, while connecting in the Caribbean and creating unforgettable memories amid an incredibly beautiful island setting. 

I consider myself incredibly fortunate to be invited to this event and can’t wait to take in all of the sessions. The sessions are really a balance of my favorite type of conference content with personal and professional development built in. You can check them all out here. 

As usual, I’m taking my boys along and this time grandma is tagging along for the fun. My husband isn’t able to go (yet again!) because of work demands. It’s almost the end of the year so people want to spend up their budgets! Side note: We really do like to spent time together. It’s just been a hard year for him to get away from work! I do need to give him a public shout out because he’s a great part of the reason why I get to do as much as I do. Thanks husband! 

We have already been spoiled by the sponsors as we’ve gotten ready for the trip.

Lands End Pink Thread

Lands’ End sent a swim shirt (that I’ll love when snorkeling!) and their signature bags but with pink thread. Why the pink thread you ask? In October, 75% of the embroidery costs from each bag that includes one of six logos in pink will be donated to breastcancer.org. I love a tangible way to know what is being given to research and this really tells you. Additionally for every photo you tag with #pinkthread on Twitter or Instagram or post to the Lands’ End page on FB, Lands’ End will donate $1 up to a total of $10,000. So let’s get tagging!

FlipOut Sandals has sent us the most versatile and fashionable shoes. They’re perfect for dressing up and dressing down at a resort. I already wore my out to a happy hour Friday night.  Iristocray also is getting us into the spirit by letting us pick out a pair of sunglasses that are perfect for us. I’m going to keep the pair I selected a secret but I can’t wait to show them. They fit me perfectly and I was even able to use their virtual try-on to make sure.

Not to leave out my children, Leapfrog sent my oldest son the LeapPad3. We love it! I wasn’t going to let him see it until the trip but I caved so we could get my husband to set it up before we left. He already has a tablet so we’re not new technology and he loves this even more. It’s so easy for all of us to use right away!  Britax USA is generously providing car seats for my boys to ride from the airport to the resort.

LeapPad3 for BeachesMoms

So we’re almost ready to go, I’m packing us up all weekend. However, I didn’t share some of the most important packing I’ll be doing is packing for a purpose. I can’t wait to share all of that with you in my next post!

Pack for a Purpose

    This sounds like it will be a great weekend. How nice that your mother and children get to go along with you. I love the swag that you received. Have a great time and can’t wait to hear more.

    WAH I was supposed to go but being in the last month of my pregnancy means I’m pretty much grounded for a few more weeks! I can hardly wait to see all of the photos and hear more about everyone’s experience!

    I can understand (totally) why you’re excited. I would be excited too (just on the destination alone!). Gotta do work anyway, might as well do it on or by the beach. 🙂

    Looks like a lot of fun! I couldn’t leave my family home and go alone, but the airfare for everyone would be too much. Hope you have a great time!

    I looked at Beaches a few years ago. They over packages for single and they also have a couples only resort. Hubs and I looked into going there for a trip. Looks like you are going to have a fabulous time!
