Simply Real Moms is an online magazine dedicated to providing current, relevant advice for today’s parents. We cover topics of all shapes and sizes, including a fresh selection of mom-tested recipes, firsthand product reviews, the latest fashion and beauty trends, health and wellness tips, and more.
The site was developed when a group of three moms saw other parents using search engines for answers to their parenting questions. The Simply Real Moms filled the void by creating a one-stop shop for ideas, information and tips where they provide practical advice for the everyday parent from the everyday parent.
Whether it’s a rainy-day craft idea or an article on the latest mom-friendly fashion trend, our moms are passionate about what they write. We know our recipes will find their way into your kitchen, so each one is tried and tweaked to perfection. And we know our recommendations may determine what products you buy, so every product review is truly an honest opinion, from one mom to another.
At Simply Real Moms, we love sharing our parenting experiences with our readers. Each of our moms has a unique background and perspective she brings to the site. Some of us work full time, some stay home. Some of us are young parents, some a little older. Every article will not only give you information to help guide you through the parenting process, but also give you an idea of who we are as individuals, because just like you, we are Simply Real Moms.
