Last Friday (August 3), my son and I had the chance to attend the launch event for Zarbee’s new all natural extra strength line of cough products for adults and children 12 and up at The Kimberly Hotel in New York City. The guest of honour was Kristin Davis, most of you may know her as Charlotte from Sex in the City.
I was actually introduced to Zarbee’s last year during the ABC Expo in Louisville and became such a fan of the brand that it has actually replaced our regular cough and cold products, so attending this event was a real treat. In addition to introducing the new products, the event was a celebration of individuals that are an inspiration to their families and communities. Liz Gumbinner, the Editor-in-Chief of Cool Mom Picks (and someone I highly admire) hosted the event which was held in the Penthouse Suite of The Kimberly, which provided a fabulous view of Manhattan.
Not only did we lunch on a beautiful buffet of healthy and delicious food options, the conversation was uplifting and inspiring – not too surprising considering the incredible guest list of whom I am proud to call many my dear friends.
As a new mom herself, Kristin Davis took some time out from the event to share her own Healthy Tips for New Moms.
1. Eat Right
Prepare healthy meals and snacks (like brown rice) when you have a few minutes so you can throw it in the refrigerator and have something healthy on hand when you get the chance to eat.
2. Go Natural
Rely on natural products you can trust, especially when you get sick. You can’t be at your best when you feel terrible! I love Zarbee’s because it’s an all natural product that helps with coughs and allergies without making me drowsy.
3. Make Time for Yourself
It is hectic being a mom so try to carve out some “me” time during the day – even just a minute to breathe and assess what you need so you can be at your best for your baby.
