Yes, yes, we are very aware it’s now 2018. But we still wanted to share with you lovely readers some of our favorite posts from 2017.
Over the past year, the three of us have really poured our hearts and souls into creating a destination where real women can feel good about themselves, no matter what size, age or weight you may be. Sometimes, we succeeded. Other times, work, sick (or healthy) kids, or just the general busy-ness of life got in the way. But when one of the Mamanistas got pulled away into life’s vortex, there was another Mamanista there to carry the weight. Thank you to every reader who came to the site, read a story or followed us on social media. You’re like a great outfit: you make us feel good about ourselves and we’re glad to have you in our lives. Wishing all of the Mamanistas everywhere a safe, happy and fabulous 2018.
Our Favorite Posts From 2017
Liz gets brutally honest on the highs and very lows of motherhood. Whenever I have a new mom friend who is overwhelmed by motherhood, I send her this post and a virtual hug.
This was one of the very first paid posts that the Mamanistas did, and in true Mamanista style, we were brutally honest about the ups and downs of the brand’s clothing. We were not asked to participate again.
My preferred break-up method would’ve been to ghost them, but since that wasn’t an option, I went all “Dear John” on ipsy’s ass.
Very little is more terrifying to the average woman then telling her to get into a swimsuit. We asked real women how they got over their fears and got into the pool.
Hint: it involves wine.
Not only was this one of our favorite posts of 2017, it was one of the most popular of the year! Sarah proves that she can scout the trends – and the bargains – better then anyone on the Internet. We had so much fun with this one that we began doing it every season, but this first one holds a special place.
I had to pick this one as it’s such a perfect visual encapsulation of Sarah: bright, beautiful, optimistic. Look at this picture and try not to smile!
It may be an Internet chain letter, but Liz does that Liz-thing that I love where she’s both snarky and sweet and the results are pretty great.
