Monica’s book “7 Habits of A Healthy, Happy Mom” available for early purchase NOW!










Who is a Mom that Wears Heels, according to this site?


She is a proud mama who puts her child first, but never puts herself last
She is confident, bold, and beautiful.  Having a child only made her more ambitious.
She loves growing, therefore, she stretches the boundaries of her comfort zone regularly.
