$PullQuote$I live in…. NYC! Best city in the world!

I started blogging when…. I was three months pregnant. I was alone in NYC and didn’t know what the heck I was doing, so laughing about it through writing made it easier.

My niche is… Motherhood survival in its rawest form. It’s this new life balance that is really hard to figure out.

I write when…..My son decides to let me. Usually during Curious George and after bedtime.

How has blogging changed my life: ...Well, I didn’t know a THING about blogging or motherhood when I first started. I call myself an accidental blogger. It’s really helped me deal with the day-to-day struggles of being a mom, and connect with/help others.

A brand I have loved working with: Ford – they’re changing the world (in a good way) and they are passionate about reaching their consumers on a level they can relate to. More brands should be like them.

How I see the future of blogging/social media: It’s an ever-evolving tornado. It will continue to change, and it’s not going anywhere, so if you don’t like it, you better learn how!

Where I work: Anywhere I want. I was just writing an article on a ranch in Texas last week, and last month from the beaches of Barbados. #writerperks

I am connected…. To too many portable devices.

When I’m stressed, I…..Eat. yikes!

My favorite gadget is…. My phone. I can do pretty much anything except perform surgery with it. It’s pretty amazing.

My favorite travel destination is…. The Caribbean. We travel to see a different island every year.

My favorite clothing brand is…Free People for cozy, Zara for work chic.

I do all my shopping…. At Anthropologie.

My favorite TV shows: ...Was Breaking Bad. Now I’m into Scandal.

My favorite movie: ...True Romance.

Coffee or tea: ...Coffee.

I love…. Showing the world to my son and seeing how he reacts to everything new.

I dream about…. One day never looking at social media again.

Where you can find my writing: ...Mommy Nearest, Huffington Post, PARENTGUIDE news, and other parenting sites.

What else I do: ...I own two companies. I know, right? Where do I find the time.
