Spotlight :: Jay / Mainly Marta :: A Motherhood + Lifestyle Blog



What started as a digital diary to document a newfound journey as a stay at home mom / wife has quickly evolved into my own little corner on the internet where I share all that life brings my way -- the good, the bad, and those "aha!" moments. All with a hint of sarcasm, a dash of truth and bold European wit. Thanks for following along!


Spotlight :: Jay

I know Mother's Day was last weekend, but I'm still in the spreading the mama love zone, so I thought I'd introduce some of my favorite Instagram + Blogging mamas in a new series called spotlight! These mamas are exceptional ladies with the most adorable littles. To start off this series,  I thought I'd introduce one of my all time favorite Instagram mamas -- Jay. 

Jay & Aleia are seriously my faaaaavorite. One of the cutest mama and daughter duos out there. I really love how authentic and genuine Jay is -- with a dash of brutal honesty. I've gotten to know her pretty well over the last few months and she's really great. She's such a sweet mama that loves spending time with her little girl and you can totally feel that love in every picture she posts! Her daughter, Aleia, is such a doll and is usually in the cutest outfits. She makes me want to have a little girl -- so bad. My ovaries hurt just thinking about cute that little girl is. Both Jay and her daughter are super beautiful and total fashionistas who should start blogging! I really just love watching their bond and journey through  those small instasquares.


Getting Personal 

Favorite Drink: Coffee with toffee creamer & water with lemon 

Parenting Style: I don't have a specific one, but I like the philosophies of Attachment Parenting. I take things from different styles & try to figure out what works for us.

Most Used Emoji: 🙈 & 😂

What was your life like before motherhood? I finished University & worked a lot. After work I use to go to the gym 3-4 times a week & pampered myself all the time with my girlfriends & travelled with hubby.

How has motherhood changed you? It has made me so humble and incredibly patient for sure. 

As your little(s) grows up, what are some things you want to instill / teach  them? I want to teach Aleia to be open minded & kind to everyone. I want her to grow up with respect. Growing up my parents made sure we were respectful & I would teach her to work hard.
