I write this blog under the pen name Jai. I am New York City native of Dominican descent, and live with my husband and two sons in Upstate New York. Having earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from Medaille College in New York State, I work in Human Resources.
I began Mami’s Time Out, a fashion and beauty blog for budget conscious beauty junkies and fashionistas, in 2008 to chronicle my love of fashion, beauty and all things girlie. It’s so important to keep our fashion sense even after becoming a mom! You can find beauty tips and reviews on the latest beauty products, the latest fashion trends for women and children as well as personal musings as a mom of two boys. A social media butterfly, I like to work with brands to give honest opinions on their beauty products as well as products for the home. My focus is to help all moms become the most beautiful mami on the block!
Since 2008 I have worked with brands such as Love & Glamour (Jennifer Lopez’s fragrance), Sears/Kmart, Kmart’s Madres y Comadres, Neutrogena, and Covergirl. I have been a Lowe’s Ambassador, a People Stylewatch Stylehunter, a Top Bloguera in 2012 as well as a finalist in the Have You Tried This Yet: the Great Try Out by P&G in the Family category. I have been featured in La Cosmopolatina as a beauty expert and on Nacho Mama’s Blog Podcast in a fashion segment.
Find me around the web!
I also write for the ConXion blog, a blog owned by the Democrat & Chronicle, a Rochester, NY area newspaper.
I also began to write for Parent Society in 2013.
