About Me

Hello and welcome!  I am so glad you are here!

My name is Yvette and I am a freelance writer, occasional maker of colorful goodies, a TV addict, and a podcast enthusiast. I love accessible and affordable fashion (although I will occasionally splurge on a timeless, must-have piece) and I am a sucker for home decor stores.

I am a proud native Floridian, born and raised in the heart of West Tampa, the daughter of Cuban exiles.YvetteManes I’ve been married to another first generation Cuban-American since 1998. We have two smart, funny, loving and considerate teenagers — yes, there is such a thing! — and there is nothing I love more than being their mom.

A blogger since 2006, I have written parenting columns for two local community news sources, and have written for national sites such Scary MommyClub Mid, BonBon Break, Her View From Home, Parent.co, Today Parents and Sammiches & Psych Meds. I am currently a staff Lifestyle Writer for Romper.

I hope to entertain you and inspire you. Thanks for continuing to enjoy this blog. I appreciate each and every one of you!
