We are very excited to introduce you to Micki Morris from Orange County, Los Angeles. You can watch Micki’s YouTube channel here. She is a married mama with two daughters.

Are you an Urban or Suburban Mama, where do you live?

We live in Southern California, about twenty minutes from the beach! I would describe our area as more urban, for sure!

Tell us about your children?

I have two gorgeous mixed Queens that are the lights of my life! My firstborn’s name is Essence, and her name exudes her personality perfectly! She is six-years-old, and just started Kindergarten! {We homeschool!} I have three angels in heaven as I suffered three early miscarriages. Our rainbow baby is named Naomi Rose! She just turned eight months old, is WALKING, and still has no teeth! Both my girls have the sweetest souls and the most intelligent minds!

Tell us about your typical weekday?

Our schedule is constantly changing! Some days we stay at home, do some housework and some homework, and I let the kids play while I create material for my online social media platforms. Other days, adventure calls to us and we hit the road to hike, beach, and explore!

Do you have help?

My husband works full-time, and is also a full-time college student, so everything else falls on me. It’s overwhelming at times, for sure! But I’ve been doing this my whole life, practically, since I had my firstborn Essence at eighteen years old!

Who cooks dinner?

I do!

How often do you buy something just for you?

Food wise, pretty often since my husband and I have totally different tastes! Fashion or makeup wise, maybe two or three times a year!

Do you exercise regularly and if so, what and how do you fit it in?

I like walking and hiking a lot, and I do it with my fifteen pound baby strapped to my chest! But I don’t go to a gym or have specific workouts, no!

What clothing lines or stores do you like to buy for your children?

We love thrifting if we can, or hand-me-downs, or outlet stores! Unless it’s a special occasion, none of us are picky about how expensive the clothes need to be. Especially since kids grow out of their clothes, or rip them or stain them, so often… we care more about quantity than quality right now!

I’m totally obsessed with…

Social media! It’s my little hub to network and create and earn my side money!

Three things in my purse right now are…

  1. Wallet
  2. Chapstick
  3. Portable Phone Charger 

My favourite drugstore buy is…

Skincare wise, I’m OBSESSED with SheaMoisture’s Black African Soap. It’s my Holy Grail! I don’t buy makeup from drugstores anymore, though!

My guilty pleasure is…

Watching home improvement shows! I’m scary obsessed with Tiny Homes the most!
