Mazda's New Rides and Girls Night Out at The 2017 New York Auto Show #NYIAS #AD


2017 marks the fifth year that She Buys Cars has partnered up with The New York International Auto Show to host bloggers and influencers for an amazing Girls Night Out where we had the opportunity to check out the latest automotive eye candy from some of the best brands {Mazda, Genesis, Toyota and Hyundai} in the car industry. It's personally one of my favorite nights of the year, where we head to the Jacob Javits center to check out the latest & hottest vehicles & trends coming out before the masses on opening day of the auto show. This year I had the wonderful opportunity to attend as a Mazda ambassador which was a pretty awesome pairing seeing as our family absolutely loves their line of vehicles and have had the chance to test drive a few working with Driveshop & Mazda over the last two years.

To kick off the evening we were all broken up into groups and while snapping pics in our favorite rides we also garnered some great insight on how to strengthen and grow our engagement on social media from some of the top influencers in the country at each of the 4 sponsoring manufacturers locations.  Cori Robinson is a wife, mother, designer and personal stylist who was stationed at Mazda & offered her tips on "the power of pretty" and how to engage our audience on Instagram and Snapchat. Check out some of the fun looks team Mada had that was spotted on Instagram from the evening with the hashtag #MAZDANYIAS 

This year was the first time in four years that the hubby didn't join me for Girls Night Out with She Buys Cars and so I had my business partner, Sisterhued.com co-founder Valerie join me. As mama's on the go with two children each we certainly look for a car that's not only stylish but functional and safe! Posing in the Mazda MX-5 Miata convertible had me feeling cute & all kinds of fancy, it seriously had me wishing I was driving around somewhere tropical with the top down and the music blasting from the Bose system. 

Mazda has certainly surprised us with it's unexpected premium features that seem luxurious and give you a lot of bang for your buck! Have you seen the Mazda CX-5 and CX-9?They are the perfect family vehicle, with enough space for everyone to drive comfortably. 

I can't drive and don't really have a desire to get my license {you can't even catch me on the bumper cars at any amusement park} but as the protective mama bear, safety features that we can rely on are always a must and Mazda puts my mind at ease when we hit the road with: blind spot monitoring, lane departure monitoring, predictive braking, and adaptive cruise control. The Skyactive Technology features truly put my heart at ease.

Don't you love checking out the luxurious concept cars that are far from ideal and the classic cars that take us on trips down memory lane?Every year I end up staying until it's time to close because catching up with my blogger babes and enjoying a night on the town is just that fun! 

Of course after the Girls Night, the hubby and our boys had to visit the Javits to get a peak at all the shiny new cars and drool worthy concepts that had their eyes light up. All the new Mazda's got a thumbs up from the Lil' Monsters.
