About

Relatable Beauty & Fashion with a Mix of Uplifting Girl Talk.

Our goal at The Modern Mamanista is to inspire women of all shapes and sizes to embrace their inner beauty.

-Showing you what real women wear to the office and on the weekend. We aren’t professional models, we’re real women balancing all the things just like you.

Celebrating beauty in each of us. We believe every woman is beautiful and we want to celebrate that.

Bringing you the things we love and that make our lives easier. We are all in this together and what helps one of us, may help another. And as we tell our kids, “sharing is caring,” right? Life is hard but fashion doesn’t have to be.

Being real and authentic. We are not beauty school graduates. We are not professional photographers. Our pictures may not have the best lighting and there may be toys or a messy house in the background, but we promise you they are real.

-Inspiring you with stories about women who inspire us. And hopefully will inspire you, too.

-Sharing on trend items at all different price points. Life is expensive. If you have the money to splurge on this seasons “it bag,” good for you (and can we borrow it?) If not, we got you covered with alternatives at different price points that won’t break the bank.

Meet the Mamanistas

The Modern Mamanista was created after daily girl talk at the office Keurig, about life, kids, outfits and beauty secrets. “OMG, you look so cute!” became the standard good morning. In the time it took to brew the coffee, we decided to start a blog. Over the years it’s evolved to a blog and online shopping page and we couldn’t be happier to connect with so many wonderful Mamanistas in this community.

Mamanista Style:

This Mamanista started as a young fashionista when my mom bought me a Fashion Plates drawing set and Superstar Barbie Fashion Face for my birthday in the 80s. For work, I gravitate toward effortless chic and look for great jewelry and shoes to make my outfit. I’d like to think shoes, not diamonds are really a girl’s best friend.

For the weekends, I embrace my girl next door style with more casual chic,  comfortable pieces that take me from errands to kid activities and family dinners at our favorite restaurant or a concert at our neighborhood plaza.  No lounge pants and slippers or mom jeans for this mom!

Mamanista Style:

I try to balance glamour and simplicity in my beauty and fashion style. I’ve been drawn to beauty since the day my mom bought me my first make-up kit. I think I was the only girl in Kindergarten wearing bright red lipstick and carrying a purse.

My love of beauty has evolved over the years and as a natural health expert, I’ve learned to incorporate earth-friendly, natural beauty and health products into my daily routine without sacrificing any of the glam.

Mom Vibes:

Aunt extraordinaire to 3 nieces and 2 nephews and I hope to start my only family someday!

Favorite Feature:

My lips and eyes.

I believe confidence is the best accessory you can wear.
