It’s such a small world! Roni first connected with Julie (Juls) through Christine from The C Word. She was instantly drawn to her rocker-chic look and her effortless way of mixing patterns in her day-to-day outfits. She fit the description of “I just threw this on, and I look amazing without even trying”. With her cute little boy, Rio, her arm covered in beautiful tattoos, her amazing style, and her killer New York vibe… Roni knew that we needed to share this cool chick with the rest of our followers!

TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOU.
I’m 35. Wife to Gustavo. Mama to Rio (2.5). Branding Consultant by trade. I am the Sales & Marketing Director for Chef Laurent Tourondel. Hubs is a sound engineer and studio bass player. He’s from Argentina and about 11 years my senior. I like them seasoned. I like to believe I am a coffee lover, yet I never finish a full cup. I firmly believe I was meant for the 60′s/70′s era. I love the quiet woods and a deafeningly loud concert. I’m partial to Led Zeppelin and Iron Maiden, but I love a good pop song.
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED BLOGGING?
I started blogging mostly because I was so proud of myself for remaining true to my style and sense of humor and dirty mouth after having a baby. I found it refreshing. I like myself more now than I did years ago. So, why not share?
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR BLOG AND WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO SHARE WITH YOUR FOLLOWERS?
Since I am mostly Instagram based now—I would describe it just as I describe my style. A little dirty, a little piece-meal, stylish, truthful, and unabashed. I try not to OD on any one thing, so you get it all. A little food, a little love, a little style, a little man. Literally, a little man.
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY ARE YOUR TOP FIVE MOMMY MUST-HAVES?
A cool jacket, lip stain, cell phone, cash, rad sneakers. (Who are we kidding? You can’t run around after a two-year-old boy in those Petty booties every day!)
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SUMMER COCKTAIL RECIPE? WHAT ABOUT YOUR FAVORITE SUMMER DISH?
Cocktail: tequila, seltzer, lime, mint, touch of agave. Food: beet & golden tomato salad—the recipe changes every time I make it based on what is in my fridge. I have a love affair with beets.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE NEW YORK RESTAURANT?
Geez, the most infamous question ever. There are so many. I think my favorite is Lobo simply because it’s a tradition for us to go there after work, and the margarita and ceviche are my favorite in Brooklyn.
WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU LIKE OUR READERS TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?
I’m ordained! Seriously. You need me around on your next drunken vaca to Vegas! Married or not! I can renew your vows. I can also perform funerals so if your goldfish dies…
