MOMpreneur: n. defined as a female business owner who is actively balancing the role of mom and the role of entrepreneur.
Happy Monday Modern Boca Moms! Welcome to our next installment of MOMpreneur Monday, highlighting Florida businesses and brands that were founded by female entrepreneurs and fellow mommas.
Is balance really B.S.? Today’s featured MOMpreneur has built a successful business answering that very question!
Meet South Florida MOMpreneur, Luly B. Carreras,President & CEO of Luly B., Inc., author of the Amazon.com best-seller released in 2013, Balance is Bull$h!t, and the mastermind behind SPARK, a day-long empowerment event designed for women coming up on Friday, May 3, 2019.
Overheard at the supermarket checkout line: “It was fine, honey. The dentist knocked her out with gas and she didn’t feel a thing. Got salmon for dinner!” I know it’s not exactly okay to eavesdrop, but people with cell phones make it impossible not to. I glanced back at the woman behind me. She had a baby in the cart and a pre-teen daughter passing groceries onto the belt. The dentist knocked her out. Wait, is it okay to knock a kid out for dental treatment? It’s obviously something that’s done, routinely, but does that mean it’s okay? After all, the list of things people routinely do that turn out to be not-okay is loooong. I’ve only been knocked out once by my dentist for wisdom tooth extraction. My child has never. But “Cell Phone Mom’s” remarks stuck with me. Was this something my own child would face? I was about to learn all about sedation dentistry… Continue reading Is Sedation Dentistry Okay for Our Kids? Let’s Discuss…→
I don’t own a crystal ball, but I know one thing: my kid is going to need braces. I had them myself…twice. First as a child in Boca and the second time as an adult in New York. It is our daughter’s future whether we like it or not. (And trust me, I see the crowding already.) Luckily, the one thing I DO like is the Boca Raton orthodontist we have partnered with for the next few months, Dr. Marc Goldenberg of Goldenberg Orthodontics!
Did you know that Boca is basically the birthplace of the luxury movie theater experience? I guess I’ve just been spoiled my whole life having access to The Premiere at Cinemark(formerly Muvico) and the gorgeous IPIC Theaters in Mizner Park. It’s truly a treat going to the movies with my family in Boca Raton! Now, your entertainment experience is about to get even better with the opening of IPIC Delray just in time for upcoming spring and summer blockbusters!
The Addison Boca Raton cordially invites your family to join their family!
The Addison, a Five Star Diamond Award winning event venue and caterer (and in my opinion, one of the most beautiful landmarks in Boca Raton–check out the below historical photo!), would like you to mark your calendars. The public is cordially invited to the following upcoming Signature Events in 2019 and trust me, having been many times– they are MUSTS!
We’re so excited for all of the 2019 Walt Disney Studios movies coming out this year! In fact, we’ve already tweeted about a few of them as information became available. Thank you Disney PR! And let me tell you, you better start saving your pennies because this a BIG YEAR for Disney Studios. Perhaps the biggest that I can remember.
If you are lucky enough to reside in Boca Raton, Florida and have our town’s pristine beaches at your disposal year-round, it’s hard (at least in my opinion) to justify going on a “beach vacation” with your family. Nine times out of ten, I’d rather spend my holiday budget on a cruise, Disney World or a country residing on the other side of the Atlantic. But after my first visit to Beaches Turks and Caicos for the 2018 Social Media on the Sand Conference (SMOTS), call me a convert!
So you’re moving to Boca Raton! Or perhaps you’ve re-located recently and are scratching your head, wondering what to do, where to go and who to see in our fair city. Well first off…WELCOME! We were in the same boat not too long ago even though this mom personally grew up in Boca Raton. (After 4 years of college and 9 years living in New York City, let’s just say my needs as a parent had majorly changed.) Before moving here a friend of mine suggested looking at new homes in spartanburg sc, however, we decided against it, plus moving to Boca was a challenge in itself.
Now with a happy and adjusted kindergartner, my veteran Boca mom friends and I have some major tips to share with families like you who are new to our area!
Summer is almost here and as the kiddos finish school and the days get longer, you’ll want something to keep them busy! When you need to get out of the house, here are some of the top attractions in Boca Raton *and beyond*!
Is a Disney Cruise for preschoolers? That was the question I seriously asked myself as I accepted Disney’s wonderful invite to the 2017 Social Media Moms Celebration. I mean, CLEARLY Walt Disney World parks are perfect for preschoolers(as we took complete and utter advantage of our annual passes in 2016).
But a cruise? And without my mom for travel backup? I figured we’d take a chance and give it a shot anyways…
School is closed this Friday, 4/19/19 and local families with children grades K-5 are invited to meet a mouse! No, it’s not Mickey…it’s “City Mouse & Country Mouse”, Rated G, playing at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. at Sugar Sand Park’s Willow Theater.
At a space-themed ceremony, the Canaveral Port Authority and longtime cruise partner Carnival Cruise Line officially broke ground for construction of Port Canaveral’s new Cruise Terminal 3 complex. The new terminal, dubbed the Launch Pad, will be the home of the Carnival Mardi Gras, the cruise line’s newest and most innovative ship, beginning in 2020!
Currently under construction, Mardi Gras will arrive at Port Canaveral mid-October 2020. It will feature:
