Whether she's encouraging other moms or giving tips on travel or fashion, Bold Uplifting Mom on the Street Monique Boothe lives her life with style and grace.
Hi! My name is Monique, I’m a lifestyle/mommy blogger and influencer located in Florida. 8 years ago, I married the man of my dreams and God has blessed us with two amazing boys. Josiah is 5 years old and Jasiel is 2 years old. I am also the owner of Mom Life and Monique. Sometimes women get overwhelmed when they become mothers and my goal is to help each mother know that they got this. I continue to remind them that life does not end when they become a mother. My blog focuses on tips and tricks for mothers to help their motherhood to be as simple as possible. Uplifting and empowering mothers is something I love because let’s be honest...motherhood isn’t easy. Social media has helped me to help others and it means so much to me. That’s why I have to continue because there is always a mother that needs some encouragement and a reminder of how awesome they are.

What’s your favorite show to binge-watch? The Flash on Netflix
If you could pick anyone to star as you in a movie based on your life, who would it be? Taraji P Henson because she’s a great actor. She makes a lot of people want to watch her. She’s inspiring and plays every role very well.
If you had to listen to only one artist/group for the rest of your life, who would it be? Tasha Cobbs. I’m a Christian and I’ve listened to some Christian songs that have made me feel sad. Tasha’s music is uplifting and reminds me to continue to be the woman that God wants me to be.

What’s your favorite way to unwind at the end of a long day? To watch TV while enjoying a glass of wine.
