I've always been confused by the way people glamorize motherhood, and frown upon you when you complain about how hard it is, or how it's not what you expected. As a new mother, I was inundated with blanketed and idealistic views of motherhood that were impractical, dishonest, and even dismissive.
I want to use this platform to speak to and with the women and mothers out there who don’t mind honesty, who admire and respect vulnerability, and who are comfortable with encouraging others genuinely. My goal is to create a community, a village – A HOOD – of women (especially mothers) who understand that the journey is different for every parent and every kid. That motherhood comes in various forms, and the definition of successful child-rearing has more definitions than most can quantify or articulate.
Hi, I'm Tomaseena
I am Tomaseena but lots of people just call me “Tia.” I am a graphic designer by trade, but the rest of my time is spent as a mom, fiancee, entrepreneur and serial creative. I enjoy sharing my favorite tips and content that highlight my journey with relationships, motherhood, and all the adventures in between.
I’m trying to provide great experiences for my family (my daughter and my fiance), create the traditions that I didn’t have, and cultivate the memories that none of us will ever forget. And (along with my fiance) I’m raising a spunky little girl – empowering her to live out loud, dream fearlessly and defy the expectations of her gender. Sometimes all of this gets messy and the never-ending learning process is extremely hard; but its always gratifying.
I love sharing clips of honest motherhood and genuine inspiration through my Instagram page. The highs and lows, ups and downs, successes and failures. It’s a true study in vulnerability. Either way, the journey continues.
