Keri Zamora with daughter Amanda
The incredibly stylish Keri Zamora is the epitome of a modern mom: goal-oriented, multi-faceted, yet in every way caring, doting, and hands-on.
As we celebrate Mother’s day, Keri shares some practical advice for working moms on how to balance their time between career and family, while allowing breathing space to pursue personal hobbies and goals.
Raising four lovely kids in ages seventeen, fourteen, eight, and six, Keri makes sure she is involved in their various activities and interests –attending daughter Amanda’s fashion shows and son Rocco’s basketball games; waking up early for Noah’s soccer practices; and joining Nic in his golf lessons.
Keri’s other persona is that of an entrepreneur. Together with two other friends, she founded Style Trio, an online clothing business. “Having my good friends as partners in my business makes things easier. We divide our tasks so I can work from home and have more quality time with the family.”
As if that weren’t enough, Keri is also a lifestyle blogger with her site Flats & Stilettos, which caters to young and passionate moms who, like her, are ‘”always out and about – be it for our family or for our own personal growth and interests.”
Keri wants to make it known to other moms that they need not give-up pursuing their own personal passions even as they raise a growing family. She also stresses the importance of ‘me time’—the chance to relax, unwind, and pamper one’s self.
In Keri’s case, she turns to gym sessions, online shopping, Netflix, and answering messages on her blog. “Allow yourself to relax, enjoy, and recharge—take that trip with your girlfriends, go to the spa, or gift yourself with something you’ve always wanted.”
Undeniably, fashion is one of Keri’s serious passions and serves as another self-care outlet for her.She describes her personal style asclassic with a twist. “Matching the right accessories is essential too”, she says, “and that includes diamond jewelry from MyDiamond’s Signature Collection”.
For her, the must-have piece of jewelry for every woman is a pair of diamond stud earrings, “I think it’s the most classic and elegant go-to earring which you can wear every day at any occasion.”Keri also shares that one should choose jewelry that is attuned to one’s individuality.
And just like MyDiamond, multi-faceted Keri Zamora clearly sparkles in everything that she does, most especially as a mother. “Motherhood has taught me to be selfless and to be more patient. I may have a lot on my plate right now, but I know my priorities. And that is why I always put my children’s needs before mine.”
