One of the things that hit me the hardest when I first became a mother is how isolated I sometimes felt. I was in this bubble of exhaustion and childcare. I yearned for a connection with other mothers going through the same thing, but I was too tired to even try. Thank goodness for the internet and my smart phone because I was able to find to feel connected to other Latina moms via Instagram.
As I nursed my baby to sleep, I could scroll through the feeds of fabulous Latina moms on Instagram and be inspired. Here are a few that I recommend:
Effortlessly stylish mom-chic inspiration abounds on this mami’s feed, reminding you that although yoga pants are dope they don’t have to be your uniform.
You can find her @pinklip.
Need some color in your life, both literally and metaphorically? This is the feed for you. It’s vibrant and joyful.
You can find her @elbavalverde.
Bricia and her family run Guelaguetza in Los Angeles, which Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic Jonathan Gold considers “the best Oaxacan restaurant in the country.” This feed will leave you with an appetite for life.
You can find her at @bricialopez.
Paulina Lopez Velazquez
Paulina is Bricia’s sister, which really seems unfair because how can one family handle so much female fabulousness? Together these two moms host a fun, candid and often hilarious podcast called Super Mamás that you should definitely check out.
