My name is La'Toya Freitas and I am your new Lead Publisher and Social Media + Event Coordinator for Honolulu Housewives in the City. I'm super excited to be here and I'd like to tell you a little bit about myself.
I am a 13 1/2 year Navy Veteran, a mom to Arianna, the most adorable 2 year old on the planet, and wife to a Navy Chief named Michael. We are also parents to a kitten named Minnie (my daughter obviously named her) who we absolutely adore. My passion is skin care, and I am a professional Network Marketer who loves what I do! I am also an aspiring model and actress recently signed to Kathy Muller agency along with my daughter Arianna! Although I wouldn't consider myself a pageant girl, I recently competed for Mrs. Hawaii-America and walked away with 4th runner up. Not too bad for my first time huh?! Although I think that phase of my life is pretty much over, I learned a lot about self confidence and the importance of believing in yourself. I read many books on self improvement, self development, as well as how to "toot your own horn" while staying humble. Through this blog, I will take you through my journey as a mom and Navy wife, soon to be a solo parent while my husband is away for quite a while. You will get to know Arianna very well and learn some of our favorite things to do, favorite places to eat, and ways that you can love yourself through all of it! I'm looking forward to all of you joining me on this journey and I know we'll have loads of fun!
