Hi Monique, tell us about you and your family.
My little family consists of my 2 favorite humans and the best fur baby around. My husband Mike and I have been together for 14 years and will be married for 10 years this October. We are the incredibly proud parents to an 8 year old named Stella and a sassy little GSP named Lola.
What do you love most about being a Mom?
Wow, there are SO many things I love about being a mom, but I guess the thing I love the most is being able to see the world through Stella’s innocent little eyes and watch her start to make her place in this world. Seeing Stella’s strong independent spirit, genuinely kind heart and desire to make the world a better place at such a young age is so inspiring. She truly makes me want to be the best version of myself every day!
What are your family hobbies?
Our family hobbies include anything outdoors! We LOVE to hike, snowboard, camp, go boating, travel and explore! Both my husband and I are big mountain people and our love for nature and animals is definitely being carried on through Stella.
How do you set aside time for self care within your busy schedule being a Mom 24/7?
I enjoy working out. Whether it’s doing bikram, going for an outdoor run, taking a class at the gym, walking the dog…..that’s my time. It’s my time for just ME! To sweat out any of the day’s negativity and refresh my body & mind, so I can be more “in the moment” when I’m back with my family.
How would you describe your signature style?
My signature style, Mmmmm not sure I really have one. I would say I definitely incorporate some of the latest trends that are going on at any given time and I love the whole bohemian vibe! If I could wear a long flowy sundress and flops everyday I would!
What do you love the most about Cielomar Jewelry?
I love the versatility and simplicity of Cielomar Jewelry. I love that whether I have my jewelry on at the gym or when I’m going out with friends I still get compliments. The particular pieces that I have are very simple, which I love. I can wear them daily without being overwhealming and can also use to dress up an outfit!
What are your favorite go-to style tips that you can share with other busy Moms in our community?
My 3 main go-to style tips for busy moms are 1) Every mom needs a good cross body bag, so you’re always hands free! 2) Invest in a signature necklace and pair of earrings that helps you feel special on those chaotic days you’re rushing out the door! 3) Have a go-to flowy top or tank that can be dress up or down.
