Ahhh!! I am so excited to kick off TMM's FIRST Modern Mama feature with my girl Isabel D'Agostini. I have known Isabel for years and have always admired her style and I am so happy that mamahood has brought us close together. She is the most amazing mom and such a bad ass in general. I am so excited for you to meet her and make sure you check out her new momma clothing and accessory line Moon+Mora and Moon+Mora Instagram. Let's get started!
TMM: Introduce yourself:
I: My name is Isabel and I will be married for 4 years in May! I have a baby boy named Vincent who is 17 months old and we live in a small quaint town named Vista! Vista for life!
TMM: How has becoming a mom changed you?
I: Well...Everything! Lets just say having to give your old life a funeral and live this new selfless demanding life was pretty hard to learn. I mean before having Vincent I was selfish just like any other 27 something year old girl. My only issue at that time was where I'm meeting up for happy hour and or what color of lipstick I was going to wear. Now I am sharing my boobs, my body, my bed, my food, my blankets, my LIFE ha! I honestly wouldn't change it for the world. I think motherhood has made me and I love that I have a tiny person that looks at me like I am his whole world. I will always thrive to make his life better for him. I love being a mom and I love showing him life and seeing it through his eyes. Motherhood Rules!
TMM: How do you stay connected to yourself while still being a full time mom?
I: Being outdoors, sunshine, date nights, working out, being surrounded by my mom community, camping with my little family, oh and yeah date nights, cooking, taking photos and creating my new business Moon + Mora.
TMM: Red or White wine?
I: White alllll dayyy! But when I am cooking or on a date red for sure.
TMM: What’s something that you are grateful for since becoming a mother?
I: Gosh I would have to say the health of my son and being able to be a stay at home momma. Thanks babe!
TMM: What’s one trick or tip someone’s given you that you could share with the TMM community in regards to motherhood?
I: Don't GOOGLE it! Don't sweat the small stuff, there is no rule book, have that glass or two of wine, and don’t give a shit what other people think.
TMM: What could you be caught wearing most days?
I: My gold bar necklaces that say “Vincent” and our wedding date in roman numerals.
TMM: How long were you in labor with your baby(s)?
I: 17 hours!
TMM: What is one thing you do to keep a healthy lifestyle?
I: I love to workout with my mom crew at stroller strides! Best mom community and workout.
TMM: What is one thing you did as a teenager that you hope your kid(s) won’t do LOL?
I: Ummmm just one thing? Shoot well if I have to choose it would be LIE! I lied to my parents a few times as a teenager about where I was. I would die if Vincent ever did that, but then again I plan on him never leaving me ha! Jk
TMM: At TMM we believe that self-care is right up there with breathing. So, what do you do to make sure you are taking care of you?
I: Getting my daily workout in, eating healthy most of the time, drinking my favorite Good Girl Moonshine(non-alcoholic) drink and just being outdoors.
TMM: What’s in your purse?
I: My 2 favorite sunglasses Raen & Ray-Bans, burts bees chapstick, bobbi brown lipstick just in case, half eaten protein bar, cheerios, hair ties, more cheerios, herbivore rose face mist, gum, Vincent's wipes & diapers, more snacks, and doterra lavender eo.
TMM: What’s your favorite curse word?
I: Fuckin Shit
TMM: What is one beauty tip or trick you love?
I: One!? Oh noo way, takes more than one trick ha! Well I am a huge advocate for clean skincare and a regimen. I will never leave my house without using Suntegrity 5 in 1 moisturizing face sunscreen and my rms beauty concealer.
TMM: Anything else you care to share about motherhood or supporting women in general…?
I: We are all in this together! Embrace motherhood and you are a Badass Momma!
