While Happy and Healthy Mom has kind of been in limbo for awhile, as I pursued my other passions and blogs, one thing has always remained constant over these almost 7 YEARS of mom blogging and this is my passion to empower moms. Every site and project I have taken on has been towards providing more opportunities for moms to grow in business and in life. Hopefully, this site will become more of a community of moms with stories, support and advice provided by moms. It is no longer my personal blog and it has grown beyond just offering options for pregnant & new moms. Here is another exciting opportunity for me that would allow me to continue helping moms: I was nominated for the Women In Toys Wonder Women Social Influencer Award.

WIT (Women in Toys, Licensing & Entertainment), celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, is the leading global networking organization for professional women in the toy, licensing and entertainment industries. Each year, they host the Wonder Women Awards Gala as both a fundraiser for their foundation, and as a chance to honor the leading women in the industry.

Now in its 12th year, the gala will honor nominees in the following categories:

  • Retailer of the Year
  • Manufacturer
  • Designer/Inventor
  • Licensing/Entertainment
  • Rising Star
  • Social Responsibility
  • Marketing
  • PR
  • Social Influencer

The Social Influencer category is a new category designed to recognize those individuals who have the most influence over potential buyers. This includes audience reach, expertise and credibility, and the strength of relationship with their followers. Nominee examples are journalists, bloggers, YouTube vloggers, industry analysts, celebrities and brand advocates.

I am both honored and overwhelmed by the fact that I was nominated for this award alongside Melissa & Gracie Hunter from the Mommy & Gracie Show, Melanie Notkin from Savvy Auntie, and Natalie Diaz from Twiniversity. I’d totally appreciate it if you could comment and/or share this announcement on the WIT FB page: http://bit.ly/WITSocialInfluencerHeatherLopez

According to Fortune Magazine, there was a 9.4% increase in toy sales with film tie-ins in 2015. Many of you who follow me on my other blogs might recall that I do a lot of work with movies and toys related to movies, like Star Wars, and that I’m also a Care Bears Share Your Care Ambassador!

I am very excited to be traveling with my family to NYC in a few weeks to experience the International Toy Fair and the Play Fair, as well as to learn if I have won this prestigious award. I look forward to continuing to build my influence this year, and with providing more opportunities for moms to grow in business & life.

I also look forward to finally officially launching my daughter’s Youtube show, DittlesWorld, so that we can review even more toys and movies! I am so happy to continue on this entrepreneurial spirit to my own child who has been there over the years for all of this mom blogging stuff!
