Keri Zamora is one of this generation’s modern mothers—goal-oriented and multifaceted yet in every way caring, doting, hands-on.
Much like many moms, she juggles several responsibilities, but unlike most, she’s able to allow some breathing space to pursue personal goals and hobbies.
Raising four lovely kids in ages 17, 14, eight, and six, Zamora 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.
Zamora’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,” she shares.
As if those weren’t enough, this stylish mother 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.”
Zamora wants to make it known to other moms that they need not give up pursuing their 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 her 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,” she shares.
Undeniably, fashion is one of Zamora’s serious passions and serves as another self-care outlet for her. She describes her personal style as “classic 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.”
She also shares that one should choose jewelry that is attuned to one’s individuality.
To be truly successful in nurturing a home and personal self, Zamora stresses the importance of finding the right balance.
“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.”
