Managing & Multitasking: 4 SI Quotes to Help You Manage It All

My team wanted me to share this with my fellow readers. 
So without further ado...

1) What keeps you going during the stressful times?

  • “I got this from a fortune cookie and it fits in so well here: “Good judgment comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgment.” I want to continue to take my brand to all the platforms that I have been building. Many partnerships and collaborations are in the work with SMART and TALENTED people. I am looking forward to this expansion taking my brand everywhere I have dreamt it should be and working with leaders in the industry. So to answer this question in a nutshell. I keep moving during the hardest times and keep building on my experiences thus I don’t allow stress to come in that much as I am too busy to stress.”

2) How do you balance work & play?

  • “I’m a driven entrepreneur and I get excited about entrepreneurship and great ideas! That gets my creative juices going. I have a notepad by my bed and I’m essentially writing down ideas either on my notepad or my iPhone until the sun comes up...It can be overwhelming at times to be “always on” and I definitely need to do a better job finding balance. I am working on it :) However, I do make sure to find time to kick back and have a glass of wine with my family and good friends and enjoy life!”  

3) What’s the most important thing you’ve learned about yourself in building a successful brand?

  • “You can’t do it all by yourself. You need to work with and retain talented people in the areas where you are relatively weak. That’s a big one. Of course, I’m still learning every day, so I reserve the right to change my answer… :)”

4) What is your hardest and best part of your job?

(Photography: Spencer Kohn)

  • “Hardest - Managing people. A boss is a mentor, teacher, cheerleader, motivator, disciplinarian, psychiatrist and – yes – even a friend to the entire team. Finding the necessary balance between all of those roles is no cakewalk.”
  • “Best – Reading emails from a teenager who say that I’m her role model or a tweet from a girl who said that she feels confident in her Alice tee or Coco Hoodie. I still just get a great thrill from seeing someone wearing the brand on the street or picking it up at a store and buying it. I don’t think that feeling I get will ever dissipate.”

In the spirit of multitasking & trying to balance it all, check out this latest drop on Boy Meets Girl®’, Girls Hustle Club. 10% of the proceeds from this collection go to Planned Parenthood, and with each purchase of a tee - you get a free Girls Hustle Club Tote Bag! There are Toddler tees too!

Mompreneur at Macy’s

February 6, 2018

As most of you know, Boy Meets Girl® brought a "Real Stories" campaign to 28 Macy’s stores & on To celebrate our launch, we held an intimate "Lunch Break" event at the Macy's Herald Square store with some of our fans, models, bloggers, editors, and staff. With the music bumping by fellow mompreneur DJ Hesta Prynn & cupcakes galore, DJ Dylan Reid came along for the ride! This was his first appearance at a Boy Meets Girl® event. It brought tears of joy to my eyes.

Dylan came rocking one of his mommy’s designs, paired with joggers & Timberlands. He brought along his BFF Macy (his Macy’s-themed teddy bear) & made a bunch of new friends. He might have enjoyed a cupcake (or two…) while mommy talked business and fashion with all the guests. He might be a social butterfly himself, too. ;)

On the way to the event, Dylan was saying “I’m going to see Mommy’s brand, Mommy’s brand is Boy Meets Girl®.” It’s all a balancing act, but he knows that Mommy goes to work & what she does. Everyone knows that Boy Meets Girl® is my fabric baby. Being able to bring the two together is exciting and truly a full circle moment.

We truly had a blast at our event celebrating all of our hard work pushing the brand across the country (#boymeetsgirlinmacys), and we thank each one of you for coming to hang out with us. Check out the full event recap on the Boy Meets Girl® blog, where we highlight the freebies, facials, friends, fun, and more.

Make sure to find us at the closest Macy’s near you and on their website!

To 2018, hustle harder. #2018hustleharder

Shine John Lennon in your room (office, home, anywhere).

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
And no religion, too
Nothing to kill or die for
Living life in peace... You...
Imagine all the people

Pocket-sized animal Totems to help keep you calm anytime, anywhere!
Totem Tamers was created when a mother witnessed her son begin to have anxiety attacks and reconnected with a friend who struggled with panic attacks. Through both their experiences, Daniel Mather and Julie Stampler joined forces to create a product to help anyone who struggles with anxiety. There are four pocket-sized totems: Owl, Bear, Shark and Bulldog. Each Totem Tamer is accompanied with a book that are beautifully illustrated and helps guide you through your anxiety.  

3.  Spero-Hope, LLC
Jamie, the creator of Spero-Hope is a breast cancer survivor who was diagnosed at age 33. She developed her own line of personal hygiene products that are aluminum, paraben and chemical free. These deodorants and body butters smell great and do not pollute your body. Through her products she is raising awareness for breast cancer and a healthy, chemical-free lifestyle.

I featured Jolly Oak in 2013 here on the blog which is founded my Mandy Fayne and Kim Strauss. I am excited they are back with new packaging and my favorite new flavor "nutz 4 s'mores" in perfect packet sizes for this mompreneur on the go! Check out all the flavors and the healthy ingredients here and scoop these up for everyone in your life. 

This month I partnered with good friend and amazing mompreneur Pamela Pekerman (I featured Pamela on the blog in 2015 here). 15% of the proceeds from this full circle Boy Meets Girl tee go to the Vasculitis Foundation, an "international  organization for patients with vasculitis, their families, friends and the health care professionals who care for them." Pamela lost her father, Ilya Peckerman, to this type of vasculitis disease on December 18th, 2009. It has been her mission to raise awareness since his passing.

My recent coverage on the blog here announced the BOY MEETS GIRL BLACK LABEL collaboration with Veronica Webb and Sophie Elgort. I am so excited to twin with my Dylan Reid now with these limited edition TODDLER TEES! Thank you to these amazing press outlets for the recent coverage on this collab: ELLE, WWD, Daily Front ROW.

If you are a Kristen Wig fan and you remember her skit on SNL you will chuckle with me seeing Dylan Reid enjoying this headband as much as mommy.

 Have a Happy, Healthy and Safe Holiday season!
