Hi there! So glad you stopped by. I started this blog because I got so tired of the sad, lonely, bad mom stereotype. I also don’t believe that all single moms are broke and desperate like the media loves to portray them. I believe that while single motherhood is tough, single moms are tougher. I know that they can be chic, classy, professional women too! I wanted to share my own journey as a chic single mom and help other moms (single or not) live the chic life too!
Single Mom Chic life is full of life advice, fashion and beauty tips. I like to focus on the idea of self care and how “putting your own mask on first” can help you not only live your best life but also help you be an even better mom. Here on this site I will chat with you about life, dating, friendship, beauty and fashion. So if you are a chic single mom or looking for advice on how to become one, you have come to the right place. If you are a former single mom, a married mom, or not even a mom at all there is something here for you too! Welcome to The Single Mom’s Chic Life!
Tonya Parker is a counselor, blogger, and former single mom who recently published a book, Single Mom Chic, about her journey as a single mom. The book employs 7 simple steps to help single moms live their best lives, and it’s full of tips on career strategies, creating a chic home and wardrobe on a budget, dating, building a co-parenting team and more.
Tonya grew up as part of a military family and has lived in several US states and many cities abroad. Some of her favorite host cities were in California, England, Germany and Turkey! She claims Virginia Beach, VA as her home but recently remarried (after a 13 year journey as a single mom) and moved to central Virginia. Her husband is superintendent of their county’s school district and she works as a school counseling director. They live in a quaint little village community and enjoy spending time with family and traveling. Tonya loves her work as a school counseling director and is passionate about working with women to help them live their best lives!
