Welcome to Marlie and Me!
I am an urban, hippie mama living in Oakland, CA who is into all things green/organic, composting, recycling/upcycling, swapping, and, of course, natural parenting. Some might think this means I am anti- a lot of stuff, but really I'm just pro-Mother Earth!
In my former life (pre-motherhood), I was a nonprofit executive in Atlanta known around town as the "prom dress lady" because I founded a charity that provides gowns for underprivileged girls so they can attend formal occasions.I loved being a fairy godmother!
I'm now a stay-at-home mom to a free-spirited 3-year-old. Her name is Marlie in case you didn't get that from the header. She became a big sister last April! Our newest member is named Desmond and he is a ball of energy! This blog is all about the things I want to teach my children, the lessons I learn while raising them, our favorite products, plus the amusing stuff in between that makes it fun and challenging!
This is my space to share my experiences and provide a little knowledge through thoughtful articles, product reviews, and giveaways. If you are looking for all three...you've come to the right place! I am very opinionated, open to all points of views, and love nothing more than a good laugh at my own expense. Above all, I am unflinchingly honest.
I thank you for visiting and hope you will stick around for my thoroughly modern take on motherhood.
If you have a question, want to write a guest post, are company rep or entrepreneur who would like for me to review a product and/or host a giveaway please contact me
