About me…

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Hi! my name is Raquel and I am a thirty-something mom of a little ray of light, my sunshine baby boy. A little about me: I currently work as an online faculty instructor and curriculum collaborator. I truly enjoy what I do for a living because it has given me the opportunity to engage with people from many parts of the world, various nationalities and cultures all from the comfort of my own home. I have a master’s in school psychology but in the process of obtaining my license found that teaching was my true calling (after all, I come from a long line of educators, my mom being one of them), almost like a rite of passage.

Why create this blog? I do have other interests other than academia! After becoming a mom, a lot of things in my life have changed.  Particularly, my love for fashion and style has also evolved because of the changes my body has gone through after having had my first child.  I’m also much more conscious of the importance of purchasing clothes on a budget. You don’t have to sacrifice looking put together just because you’ve had a child. We can be moms and still have a sense of style that’s all our own, being conscious of the fact that our bodies have changed…and our finances as well!! Becoming a mom has influenced so many aspects of my life and I find this space to be an amazing outlet to connect with other women who share this evolution as well.  I love fashion, beauty products and a good sale so this is a space where I get to share these things with you and find out what you like as well. I love online communities and what they bring to the table so for me, creating this blog was a no- brainer.

 

Hope you enjoy visiting.

XOXO,

Raquel
