Tell us more about you and your blog?
City Peach is about living a stylish motherhood in every form. I hope to inspire outfit ideas, coach on wardrobing, what to invest in and why, and where to find it all. I mix high end with bargain finds, emphasize the art of layering, and proving that it’s possible to look chic on any budget. I started City Peach as a Georgia peach living in New York City, then continued it as I moved back to Georgia and became a mother, not wanting to lose myself or my style in the process.
What are 3 things you wish you knew about blogging before you started?
- Put yourself out there in every way possible.
- I would have attended all workshops and events possible early on, instead of just kind of figuring it out on my own.
- The balance between all social media channels. I focused on Instagram for so long and never utilized Pinterest, when Pinterest is a huge asset!
What’s been your most memorable moment as a blogger?
My highlight is all the people I have met along the way. I have met some of my closest friends of like-minded, strong, driven, amazing women that I otherwise wouldn’t even know!
Give us your best tip for maintaining a blog work/life balance?
I make sure I have check lists short-term and long-term, every little thought or idea is written out. Plus, making sure I maximize my work day while my kids are at school so I can truly be present on nights and weekends.
Instagram or Twitter?
What is your guilty pleasure?
Getting a coffee or bubble tea and shopping at the mall – alone!
What’s one product you can’t live without?
Mascara. I rarely like to be seen without it!
What’s your most memorable trip or vacation?
This past fall I attended NYFW. It meant more to me than just a trip. I had left NYC from living there a few years a little lost and fresh out of a bad relationship, telling myself I would return in a better place emotionally and career wise. Going up to NYC with fellow bloggers and new friends that I barely knew, for a career that I grew from the ground up. It meant everything to me because I accomplished exactly what I set out to do, in one of the most meaningful places. I saw the city with new eyes and a different perspective on life.
Coffee or tea?
What’s been your favorite part of being a member of The Blog Societies?
I remember when first starting my blog, one of my goals was to grow it to be accepted into TBS (Southern Blog Society at the time). I wanted to be a part of women who were doing the same thing as I was business wise and thought the same way, yet with different content. In joining, I met a whole network of people and know that I can have an immediate friend in them no matter where they live or what they do.
