Mother Hustle

Hey Mamas! Hope everyone had a fun and long Holiday weekend. We are ready to dive into more mom and shop features today. Lets start with our next mama model from the #TheMotherhoodProject shoot, Brianne

Lets break down her fab look! Starting at the top, she has on a leopard turban from Little Anchored Threads Co. Her heart shades are from Fj & Co. Her black/gold "Mother Hustle" tee is handpainted by HoneyBeeTrueCo. Her black tassle leather purse is made by Urbemm. The leopard print fabric button necklace with bronze chain is from HH & Co. her gold and black bangle is Moxy Jewelry. And lastly, the Swarovski® Crystal EOS is made by Little B's Crystals. Hair and makeup done by Urban Styles Salon and Spa. 

Brianne is mother to four year old, Alani. She traveled from California to be apart of our project, and we were so stoked to have her. Brianne said it was challenging to channel her inner model, but we think she nailed it. Her look seemed to suit her perfectly. For Bri motherhood means, "a new lifestyle dedicated to the well being, and happiness of my child." Her favorite thing about being a mom is, "when my daughter gives me random kisses, and tells me she loves me." 

 Our first shop boss mom up today is Amber, owner of, 

Urbemm handcrafts leather shoes, and water moccs for children. Urbemm comes from "Urb", which is Latin for City, and EMM are daughters initials, Elaonor Mae. Amber will be expanding into more products very soon, including this beautiful leather fringe/tassel bag pictured above. We loved this bag! Not only was the leather beautiful and buttery soft, but it was actually big enough to be practical for everyday use as mom, and still have killer style. Here is a little more about Amber and her rad shop. "I love the fast pace of big city life, the lights, the bustle, the industrial feel. I also love small cities. The softeness, closeness and quietness get me everytime. My daughter was born in the summer of 2013 and has brought me so much joy. She is the muse to all my work. I started creating leather goods in the Summer of 2014 and will be expanding to clothing, bags, and much more in the Summer of 2016. Each piece is created with originality and uniqueness in mind. Just like every city, every child is different, and I hope that when you purchase a piece from one of my collections, you feel the love, the uniqueness, and the care that went into each piece"

Next up is the amazing Marjorie, shop boss mom of FJ&Co

FJ&Co is the sister brand to FJS_PopShop. Affordable, on-trend eye wear for children and adults. She has so many styles you will definitely be able to find a pair you'll love. Or better, start a collection and have a rad pair for everyday of the week. You can never have too many shades. We love them all, but Nicole and I agree, the classic gold aviators are a must have for every mom. 

Here is our Q&A with Marjorie. 

"I became a mother in 2013. I have one son named FJ, who is 2 and a half years old. I began @fjs_popshop in April of 2014. To me motherhood is a BLESSING, I say blessing, because I have been blessed to become a mother, it changed my whole life for the better.
Of course becoming a mother influenced my decision to open a business. We were struggling, I had an emotional issue (at the time I didn't know but I had post pardon depression), as well as financially with one income and my leave it was barely enough. We had drained most of our savings so I thought I needed to help out somehow, but I didn't want to go back to work because my son was just a few months old and I wanted to enjoy each and every day with him.
So first I started selling some of my sons preloved clothing via instagram and that was a success. Then I thought hey why doesn't anyone sell cute accessories for boys, and so I went searching to find the perfect pair of glasses, I started selling the "Classic Hipster glasses" and within months we grew our collection. To date we carry over 100+ styles and colors of glasses & sunglasses for kids and adults. 
My favorite thing about being a mother is watching my sons smile, and ultimately his happiness and joy about life and everything.
 My favorite thing about running my own business is the sense of feeling accomplishment, I'm fulfilling a lifetime dream. (someone pinch me!)
I hope that some day soon I can and will be able to stay home with my son to watch him grow."
