About Luxe Angeles Mom

Unique, Curated Experiences and Products

At Luxe Angeles Mom, we are about making the life and times of being a parent easier, because at the end of the day, isn’t that the greatest luxury in the world?  We do all the hard work so you don’t have to.  From crafting unique experiences to finding high quality products, our goal is to provide ideas for fun and educational activities and reviews that give you the pros and cons of the products we consider using for our children.

The Best Activities and Products

I was fortunate in my media career (which spanned CNN, Fox and E! Networks) to have built a network of industry and celebrity experts who provide a wealth of knowledge on the best, most current and coveted products and fashions out there.    Once I had kids, I found myself in new and uncharted territory. I turned to those same professionals to give me access to the best in kids products; from sunscreen to strollers, even indoor playgrounds.

We are Parents Too!

At Luxe Angeles Mom, we are discerning, not only because you are, but also because choosing products and activities for our children has become increasingly complex.  Almost every product we write about is something we’re interested in for our own kids.  Lotions are typically organic, food is healthy and trips we aim to make fun & relaxing for everyone involved (including you!).

Expert, Timely & Relevant Advice

Other aspects that set us apart is our “Expert Panel,” an incredible group considered the best of the best in what they do from nutrition to pediatrics. This panel is on hand to answer your personal questions at any time.

Goods for Good

We are also using the blog as a tool for change.  We realized over the last few years that we could help aid Companies in giving back locally and have launched our own effort: Goods for Good (“G4G”). We are super proud of this program as it connects companies to non profits with the goal of making kids and families lives better.  We ensure these G4G program participants are focused locally and helping people in the Los Angeles area.

We hope you enjoy reading this as much as we enjoy researching and writing.  It’s our little labor of love and we’re honored to have you as a part of it.
