About Me

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

My name is Yvette Manes and I am a freelance writer, occasional maker of colorful goodies, a TV addict, and a podcast and audiobook 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. I’ve been married to another first generation Cuban-American since 1998. We have two smart, funny, loving, and considerate kids – a son in college and a daughter in high school – 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 been published on national sites such Scary MommyBonBon Break, Her View From Home, Mother.ly, Today ParentsSammiches & Psych Meds, Romper, and am currently a freelance writer for INSIDER. I have also been published in the March/April 2018 issue of Your Teen For Parents Magazine and in the December 2018 issue of Parents Magazine.

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