Founded in 2004, Mommies with Style is a community of Moms who like to chat about what products we buy and use with our kids. Our daily blog discusses a variety of products from diaper bags to Dad products to kids toys. We like to throw in a coupon code or discount with most posts.
We’re just a bunch of real Moms. Some of us come from an industry background, some don’t. If you’re here, you fit in just fine as we cover a wide variety of topics. We even have lots of non-Mom members like aunts or friends looking for gift ideas, so feel free to jump on in, no matter who you are.
Community is important to us. This site is a collective of the works of many Mom writers, members and columnists who make this site what it is. Without our members, our readers and our writers, this site would not be the success that it is – and for that, we thank you.
If you would like to contact one of the writers below, please email and your email will be forwarded to the appropriate person.

Julie’s been a part of Mommies with Style as a Senior Writer since early 2005. She also lives in the Philadelphia region. She has two boys (2003, 2005) and a fishbowl with a fish that gets updated more often than this page so we’ll just leave it at that.

Ciaran is a Senior Writer & Columnist from Orange County, CA. She has two girls (1996, 2000), two boys (2004, 2008) and a lovable and surprisingly unsmelly cat named “Stinky”. She is rarely found without a Venti Americano in her left hand and iphone in her ear. She has a fierce stroller and bag collection and will talk your ear off about how to combine these into perfect ensembles.
When not scouting the latest mommy must haves, Ciaran designs and manufactures the kids clothing line Francie Pants. She also co-owns the family automotive and travel blog Car& and loves writing retail therapy prescriptions on her latest site, Popshopology. Ciaran contributes a humor column to the Los Angeles Moms Blog. She is AKA “Momfluential” on social media sites across the web and her latest activities can be found on her personal site

She has a cat, a fish and she’s co-President of The Associates Advertising, a full service advertising agency focused on the retail market, run with her husband.
Shopping is not only Zareen’s guilty pleasure but an integral part of her career. As a full-time mom and part-time business woman multi-tasking is essential. As such, a large part of her life is spent online. Zareen hates shitake mushrooms and loves a good glass of wine.

Debbie is a Senior Writer and has been writing for Mommies with Style since early 2005. She lives outside of Philadelphia with her husband, daughter (2003) and son (2007).
Debbie enjoys shopping for bargains, helping people find the perfect gift they are looking for, constantly taking pictures of her kids and never missing a sale at Bloomingdales. She’s always searching online and in stores to find unique products to review for MWS. Deb just loves to shop, shop, shop! (Her husband…not so much) Friends and family alike keep telling her she should become a personal shopper and that’s something her husband would love her to do – shopping with other people’s money! For those in the Philadelphia area, keep a look out for Deb in the local malls and boutiques as she seems to appear there quite often.
Prior to mommyhood, Debbie worked in advertising as a Senior Media Buyer/Planner and as an Account Executive for a national school photography studio.
