Meet A Houston Mom – Meet Jennifer Metzler of the Fashionable Maven

February 18, 2019 | 0 comments

As a blogger, I have met so many kind and helpful women in Houston! I love how everyone shares information with each other as well as advice for women who are starting out their blogs. I have been able to learn so much about blogging by putting myself out there and going to events or reaching out to other bloggers on Instagram. Most of the women I have reached out to are so friendly and it really feels like community over competition. Which I love so much!

I have great appreciation for my Latina roots and was really excited after joining The Houston Latina Bloggers Group! It is filled with entrepreneurs, bloggers, and Latinas who support one another! Thru them I have been able to build my name as an illustration artist.

I take pride in knowing we are growing with this community. It was also important for me to be a part of a practice that has been a significant part of Houston’s fabric and therefore is a part of Houston’s legacy.

Meet A Houston Mom – Meet Alina Kravchenko Inventor of SwipenSnap

Ever since I was a little girl I dreamed of becoming an inventor, I loved creating solutions to the problems I faced. So when I became a mom and had to deal with applying messy diaper cream, while trying to keep Ayden from rolling off the diaper changing table – I seriously needed a solution. I went on Amazon to find a one hand diaper cream applicator – and there was nothing! So… I decided to invent one myself!

I was pretty isolated when I got here. I started creating little things here and there, and got introduced to the @htxbossbabes by my (soon-to-be) sister in law. This changed SO MUCH for me. I had no idea there were so many badass women out there running their own businesses, killing it every day!! Following them inspires me daily and motivates me to keep on growing my own brand.

Our local Houston community has helped us grow on many levels. The schools and early childhood directors have eagerly promoted our mission.

December 12, 2018 | 0 comments

I am constantly reminding myself that the days are long but the years are short. Our time with our kids is limited. Yes, they will be around until we send them off to college, but the days that they WANT to be around us are numbered. One day, they won’t beg me to read another chapter just so we can snuggle a little longer before bedtime.
