Cool Whip whipped topping was looking for busy moms who, somehow, still find the time to make every day special for their families and that was something I could definitely identify with. And, well…they found me! And by “found” I mean they invited me to be one of four bloggers to be part of a their new national print advertising campaign. Yes, national…as in our pictures will appear inside the pages of magazines I actually buy.
The invitation was a bit overwhelming for me because I didn’t see an opportunity like this to spread the word about SpanglishBaby coming to us so fast and furiously.
The Cool Whip ad will feature yours truly with a top secret dessert of our creation and a paragraph telling the world about my joint-custody cyber baby: SpanglishBaby.com!
The shoot took place in NYC the first week in January. As you might remember, I was in El Salvador spending the holidays with the familia during those days. So, this busy mamá had to fly out to freezing New York City for two days while my girl and husband were well-fed and well-loved in El Salvador.
In NYC, I got to meet the fabulous three bloggers who were also chosen for this campaign. We instantly bonded as we saw each other get transformed for the shoot at a beautiful studio loft overlooking the Chelsea Piers and the Empire State building.
At first I was nervous about what to expect because even though I´ve been in these scenarios plenty of times behind the scenes, this was my first time in the actual spotlight with people primping and staring at me. The photographer was adorable and funny and totally made us at ease as we posed with our imaginary Cool Whip creations.
The campaign launches in March and I can´t wait to see the ad and share it with the SpanglishBaby familia!!
