Hi, I’m Stefania – working mom, wife, dog owner and blogger on the side who’s just trying to enjoy a hot cup of coffee while managing a home and family.
After becoming a Mom in June 2017, I was hit with many obstacles and struggled to find my new identity. After spending months searching for answers, I realised that while I was now a mother, I was still Stefania. My passion for beauty and cooking still lived within me and my love for story telling and sharing was something I still took great pride in. Life has definitely changed over the years, but it’s changed for the better. Now more than ever, I have so much drive to create a positive and simple life for my little family.
Whether you’re a Mom who is single or with a partner, working or staying home, new to motherhood or seasoned to it, pregnant or struggling with fertility or if you’re just wanting beauty advice and delicious recipes, From the Playpen is here for you! We like to refer to ourselves as a REALifestyle blog because our mission is to keep it real! We share everyday life that includes work, motherhood, carbs, cheese and a good old 5-day top knot! No judgement here – just real life.
