Ohio born, raising two very opinionated New Yorkers, a charming little boy, 7 and a curious big girl, 9, just minutes from NYC. Not quite the cool mom, but definitely not Tiger Mom. I write about parenting a pre-tween girl and 7 year old boy, blogging my way through parenting, and living life to its fullest one day at a time. Thank God I get a chance to start fresh every day.
Fabulous at 40+, I am an educated, African American woman who breastfed AND stays home with my babies. I am a publicist-turned-blogger who started this blog 4+ years ago to bring my community together by sharing events for families. Since then, the blog has grown tremendously in visitors and topics, and I have been dubbed an important voice in the digital arena in Valley Stream, Long Island, and New York.
I also work with teen girls by coordinating monthly empowerment workshops and events for girls in middle and high school. Join us!
FYI – Valley Stream is located 30 minutes from New York City so feel free to invite me to your brand event.
I love God, my family, social media, good food, the spa/pampering, shopping, luxurious hotels/bed and breakfasts, movies, weekend getaways, home decor, EVERYTHING on HGTV, date nights with hubby, and am all about girl power.
Raising mentally and physically healthy children are my priority.
To have an event added to the weekly newsletter, please send an email by Friday to ValleyStreamMom@gmail.com.
My daily must haves are my smile, wedding/anniversary rings, designer handbag, bronze face powder, eyeliner, gel manicure, and silver hoop earrings. I never leave home without them.
I have lived in Ohio, Michigan, Brooklyn, NY, and now live in Nassau County/Long Island where we can hop on the train and be in New York City within 30 minutes. I think I already said that….
Married 12 years, I am mommy to an 9 year old daughter, born in Brooklyn and a 6.5 year old boy, born in Queens. I’m waiting for a rap or break dancing battle to start in my living room at any given time.
I love all things social media! I have worked with numerous campaigns including UPS My Choice, Graco Little Lounger, #DisneySide @HomeCelebrations, HealthMart Pharmacy, Coney Island, New York Mets, TNT, Noodle & Company, Smashburger, The Little Mermaid and more.
In addition to this blog, I manage a FB group of over 600 VSMoms (and growing), average over 3.9K Twitter and FB fans and am building my Instagram following. Who knew? I can barely remember all of my current passwords!
