Today , we have the pleasure of featuring Brianna, from Stroller in the City. We have known Brianne since the very beginning of our launch of Louis B Boutique, and we have truly enjoyed getting to know her and her family. Brianna is honestly one of the sweetest moms, who worked with us and we have stayed in touch ever since. What I admire most about Brianne is that she always seems to have the perfect balance with being a mom, a wife and a blogger. Catch up with Brianne below and see what she has to say about balancing it all and living in NYC .
1.Tell us more about Brianne?
I am 32, born and raised in New York. Not N.Y.C. (I wish) but just outside of the city. My family and I currently reside in Battery Park, New York City. I’m married to a wonderful husband Jason, have three children Ryder, Siella, and Gemma, ages 5, 2, and 9 months. Oh and two dogs, Teddy and Penny Lane.
2.Before becoming a blogger, you were a fashion showroom owner, what prompted the change?
I was! Basically it was about a month before my first child (Ryder) was born and all of a sudden it hit me that I wanted to be a stay at home mom. I didn’t see how I could fully devote my time to both (motherhood and business) equally; which would not be fair to either. The showroom not only required a lot of hours but tons of traveling as well.
3.Do you believe in balance? How do you balance it all?
I think you can “try” and “aim” for balance, but nothing will ever be perfectly balanced. Some weeks I work more than others, while there are weeks where we have nothing but play dates, and that’s ok.
4.Activities in NYC for families seems endless, what is your favorite thing to do with the kids?
We have so many favorites but I would say during the winter months, it’s definitely visiting the museums. A favorite is the AMNH. And during the summertime, visiting the many parks we have down here.
5.Finish these sentences:
Being a mom is : the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me.
My children: are my life.
Life: is a wonderful thing.
My favorite color: is gold.
I love my husbands: heart and soul.
6.What is it like raising your family in NYC?
It’s really been a dream come true. I have always wanted to live here, so being able to actually live here and raise my kids here is unreal. Our life is definitely fast paced, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
7.Many moms, including myself believe that NYC can be a bit overwhelming when it comes to space, taking the train, the traffic, what do you find the most challenging part?
I would say the most challenging is the winter months. I am pretty use to this cold weather but the kids are just not fans. Bundling them up and getting from point a to point b without losing a glove is quite challenging.
8. What can we expect from Stroller in the City?
Stroller In The City is all about the adventurers of having three children and living in NYC. I focus a lot on children’s fashion and love telling my readers about new brands I discover.
9. Tell us about, Ryder, Siella and Gemma?
Ryder is already 5 ½ and growing faster than the speed of light. He is in kindergarten already and is just the most loving little boy. Don’t get me wrong he does have his moments. Siella is the spit-fire in the family. She knows what she wants and won’t have it any other way. But she does have a very gentle side to her and just adores her siblings and is always looking out for them. And Gemma is the happiest little baby around. She goes along with the flow and is just the sweetest thing.
10. How did you connect with the founders of the New App for the Lil Styler’s.
