Hey Mamas The Mothership

All Rounder Mama Kelly Zajfen

The definition of an all rounder is a person with many different skills and abilities. L.A based Kelly Zajfen is most certainly an all rounder, looking effortlessly chic and at ease while doing so! She is a wife, mother, designer, philanthropist, former model and current creative director of the clothing line Little Minis. Welcome Kelly!

∇  My family…

I am a wifey to an amazing man named Julian. We have been together for 8 years. We have two beautiful kiddos. Twins that are 3.5 years old. A boy named George and a girl named Lily.

∇  I juggle…

Family and work as best as I can. Being a mama is my first priority. After that I am a Co-Founder of a beautiful little girls romper line called Little Minis. We use all vintage deadstock material so it’s less damaging on our enviornment and make limited runs. I also am a Co-Founder of the Alliance of Moms. A membership based auxiliary group that supports the work of the Alliance for Children’s Rights. The Alliance of Moms creates educational programs to empower young moms and dads in the foster care system in Los Angeles.

∇  Being married…

… is pretty wonderful. I love spending my days with my best friend and I love that we created these two little beings who are a combination of the two of us and our families. I married into an amazing family. I love love the family he has brought to me.

∇  Since becoming a mother…

Lot’s of things have changed. It’s less about me. My whole focus is my family first. I’m way more emotional, compassionate, and certainly understanding. My thoughts are consumed with them and every decision I make will effect them so I’m much more careful about my time.

∇  My daughter…

Is a super hero and my hero. A year ago we discovered she has a third degree heart block. It is where the top of her heart doesn’t communicate with the bottom. So 7 months ago a pacemaker was placed in her heart to make sure she’s safe. We call it her Super Charger and that she’s Super Lily almost daily. She is the most energetic and fun little girl. She teaches me everyday that life is supposed to be fun and messy.

∇  My son…

… is the sweetest soul I have ever known. He is my cuddle bug. His smile can light up an entire room. He hugs everyone he meets and teaches me everyday that kindness is the key.

∇  I can’t live without…

My camera. I document everything.

∇  I am really good at…

Chalk art. I started when Lily first got sick to create space for her to see she was a super hero and magical and the kids loved them so much I would draw whatever we read the night before and it just stuck. I had NO idea I could draw!

∇  If I had a do-over…

I’m not sure I’d have a do-over! I think every single thing that has happened has given me a lesson and a tool to do the things I am doing and the person I am. I know I know it sounds silly but I’m pretty happy with the way things are 🙂

∇  I am ridiculously bad at…

Sewing. I can’t seem to make it look decent. Poor husband and his buttons!

∇  My home…

Is warm and welcoming. I love having people come over for dinner parties, playdates, or just running around the backyard.

∇  Currently obsessed with…

Netflix binge watching. I never get time to watch shows anymore but when I can watch it one after another on my down time it’s the best!

∇  Not many people know…

I am terrified of deep waters.

∇  My personal style…

Is pretty breezy and simple. I love dresses and florals. I love a good pair of vintage levis and a tee but I feel best in a dress.

∇  Life is good when…

My family and I are traveling together.
