Hey girl, I’m Reiko Foster, a veteran teacher working outside the classroom and a print-mixing mom of two kids who are 50% big hair, and 50% dope glasses. Zavi and Zara are back at school now, but I’m still catching my breath after virtual learning and reminding everyone that the pandemic is still a thing. Let’s just say I’m grateful that my husband Sean does most of the cooking around here! How are you doing?
Style is my love language, and if you’d like to learn my print-mixing ways, try my free work style challenge! Speaking of work style, my former blog, God’s Favorite Shoes, showcased outfits of the day and trips to CurvyCon, but this blog exists to show you how style fits into every space of my life. Reikofoster.com is also a hub for all my creative services, ranging from style consultations to virtual room refreshes! When I am not posting here, you will find me house hunting in Texas and keeping up with Zara’s doll craft projects. Did I mention that I am now a T-ball mom?!
If you’re new here, I’d love you to know that I’m really just a regular mom who happens to be on the internet. I love sharing snippets of my every day (like trying to eat healthier and cook the occasional meal with Freak Flag Organics*) and if you’re looking for honest conversations about family, education, justice or even communicating with your child’s teachers effectively, you’ll love it here. I’m really passionate about including our kids in this dialogue too, so the kids and I wrote an educational activity book called Kids Can Vote Too! in 2019.
Here’s what one of my friends had to say about my little space on the internet: “I just like what you are doing. Just doing your life without an agenda….that is a nice thing to follow. You like clothes, kids, justice, and decorating, and food but nothing feels like you are trying to “make it” in influencer land. Your kids crack me up, your style is great but nothing is super curated and I love that. I just like seeing how other “normal” people live. And normal is a weird word but it’s nice seeing someone with a fam, a job, and a life just trying to get through the days.”
