WELCOME TO THE MOM LIFESTYLE!
“The homemaker has the ultimate career. All other careers exist for one purpose only – and that is to support the ultimate career.” –CS Lewis
I’m Klasha – an Air Force Vet turned Emergency Manager & MOMpreneur. I have two amazing daughters (ages 17 and 12) who are my absolute best friends. I am currently single and ready to mingle! But you can catch a cameo of my ex-husband every now and then (we’re still good friends & co-parent) if you follow along closely to IG and stories.
I decided to start The Mom Lifestyle blog as a creative outlet to share all of my passions – I have many! At the top of the list is being a mom – I truly love absolutely everything about my job as a mother!! I want a lot of stories. I want to try a lot of different things. My own little world full of creativity, strength and compassion. A mom that my children don't feel is in the way but a mom they can reach out to and confide in always.
“The best color in the whole world is the one that looks good on you.” – Coco Chanel
Fashion makes me love being a woman! It’s the ultimate form of presentation; you can say so much about yourself without ever uttering a word – your outfit says it all. So I’m currently putting more effort into “my look”. As for my fashion style, I love classic and timeless pieces that flatter my shape, exude effortlessness, make me feel beautifully sexy, and above all COMFORT!
I have never worried about what other women are wearing or keeping up with trends; I try to stay true to how I’m built and remain confident in knowing what looks best on me. I’m a busy working mom like most of you so quick and comfy is my go to for the everyday. I love dresses for nights out because it’s simple and always looks put together. Oh…and for me I’m trying to live up to “there is no such thing as bummy” – even while relaxing at home or going to the gym. I believe it’s possible to wear something that makes you look and feel amazing and my goal to find that put together comfy outfit no matter what. There are so many beautiful clothes being made by remarkable creative minds – I am constantly inspired by fashion and I hope to inspire you.
NUTRITION & FITNESS
"You are a walking testament of your own diet. Keep a diet that you are proud of, so you can have a body that you are proud of." -Unknown
My only goal when it comes to health and wellness is to do the best I can everyday with the awareness I have. I think it’s very easy to know what you should do to allow your body to function at its most optimum, but it’s another thing to actually live it and breathe it. It’s not one factor in particular that I worry about, for me I’m more concerned with maintaining and sustaining a healthy lifestyle. I live with the fundamental idea that food is fuel, meant to nourish, energize, and repair the body and it’s also meant to be enjoyed. So for me it’s simple, eat the foods my body needs to function at its optimum, enjoy treats on occasion and my body will be good to me in return. I look forward to sharing my favorite recipes and exercise routines, which work for my busy lifestyle both on the road and at home.
QUEEN TIME & BEAUTY
"We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty."— Maya Angelou
I find so much pleasure in all things beauty and I’m trying to perfect make-up! I enjoy the routine of caring for my skin, trying new products, getting a mani/pedi and mastering make-up techniques like a pro. I’ll share plenty of my tips for skin care regimens that are affordable. Along the way, I hope to encourage women to embrace their beauty. What I mean is, you can wear your hair natural, dye it, straighten it, add extensions, weave or wear a wig and be beautiful no matter the style you choose. Don’t feel judged by expressing yourself! Do what makes you feel your best. I hope you’ll enjoy my make-up attempts and how-to beauty techniques for enhancing your natural beauty.
DAY TRIPPIN’ and TRAVEL
The Mom Lifestyle is all about balancing life and work. What is Day Trippin’? It’s taking a trip in your own backyard, becoming a tourist in your own city. I live in Southern California so there are so many places to explore right here at home! I’m also in the process of becoming a travel agent and invite you to follow along with me as I take you to amazing places around the world to experience food, culture, fashion and so much more!
