10 Badass Latina Mom Influencers That Will Inspire You

Sometimes the world of social media influencers just seems like it’s more and more of the same. Lots of people trying to make their mark by literally fitting into the same box. There’s lots of great content and inspiration out there, but it can all feel kind of vanilla after a while, especially it seems when it comes to mommy influencers. You might find yourself wading through thousands if not millions of Instagram accounts trying to find someone you can relate to as a mother — someone who has a unique perspective to offer, a colorful and authentic grid, kids the same age as yours, a shared background, etc. Let’s be honest…a lot of us give up before we even reach the tip of the iceberg. But if you keep digging there are lots of Latinx mom influencers being themselves, enriching the lives of other Latinas and Latinx families and representing their cultures with pride and realness. These are some of the Latinx mom influencers that are giving us major inspo lately.

Karim Jones

At first glance, Karim Jones Instagram page looks a lot like what we see from top mommy bloggers, but she has a subtle way of injecting her culture and an attitude of empowerment into everything she shares. Whether it’s a kid project celebrating inspiring women and International Women’s Day or dressing her daughter up in a DIY Frida Kahlo costume for Halloween, Karim is inspiring us modern Latinx moms in America with a natural blending of cultures and values that defines how many of us live our lives.

Vanessa Bell

Creator of the blog desumama.com, Vanessa’s commitment to spreading awareness about the beauties and challenges of being a multiracial family is incredibly inspiring. She encourages family togetherness, cultural exploration, acceptance and self-awareness for black and brown kids and it’s absolutely beautiful to watch along on Instagram as her kids learn and grow. Vanessa and her husband work to ensure that their children embrace their unique identities and it’s just awesome.

Sili Recio

Sili Recio is an Afro-Latinx writer and influencer who is pretty much as woke as you get on the ‘gram. While she shares bits of her life and her experience as a mother to a dynamic daughter, she’s also the author of an upcoming children’s book entitled If Dominican Were a Color and a blogger at SiliRecio.com where she talks about motherhood, her social and political views, her faith, her work and lots more.

Maria Jose Ovalle

Maria Jose Ovalle is an adorable and crazy funny Latinx mommy, actor, and comedian with a super-fun Instagram account that chronicles what it’s like to make it in showbiz, parent her two girls while mostly working from home. Her facial expressions alone make us chuckle, but her real-life stories about auditioning for gigs, introducing her kids to Chilean foods, and other silly mommy moments are a breath of fresh air. She’s like a Latinx Mrs. Maisel!

Even during the toughest times, my life is filled with love. It always has been and that leads me to believe it always will be. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️⁣ My mantra for 2019 has been “Lead with love.” The idea being that before I take action I should consider whether that action is motivated by love. If it isn’t, then I don’t do the dang thing. If it is, then I proceed. ⁣ ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️⁣ Have I been perfect? Nope, a few non-love motivated actions and curse words have been perpetrated by me, but for the most part it’s been about love and my life and soul have been more peaceful because of it.⁣ ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️⁣ There is only one problem: lack of love.⁣ There is only one solution: love.⁣ ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️⁣ How are you doing on the lead with love front? ⁣ #leadwithlove #normalizelove

Claudya’s quirky, curly pink hair is what will draw you in, but her thoughtful, insightful and practical words and opinions on just about everything from parenting to politics is what will keep you coming back for more. She’s funny and cute and honest and always embraces and showcases her Latinx culture and pride in basically everything she does. Plus, her little family is absolutely adorable and a blast to follow along with on Instagram.

Inez Bayardo

As the Latinx single mama to an adorable little boy, Inez Bayardo has a lot to say on a lot of topics. She recently launched the Mocha Mamas podcast where she and her co-host talk about race, color, justice, and social change, but her personal Instagram account is just as thought-provoking and inspiring. Inez is actually a children’s pastor by day, which for many onlookers makes her perspectives on diversity and social justice all the more refreshing.

Know your girls!! For National Breast Cancer Awareness month, I am happy and honored to announce that I have partnered up with @susangkomen to spread awareness and share why this cause is so important to me. In October of 2017, I lost a very dear friend of mine due to breast cancer. We were friends since elementary. She always took care of me during school because I was the youngest in our class. I was so shy but she always encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone and be the best version of myself. We had a never ending friendship and shared so many memories. That was until breast cancer took over her body. She was so young. I cannot help but cry and live this all over again as I write this. I want to honor her and do what she would have wanted me to do, spread awareness. I want to help other women catch breast cancer early so they can live long and healthy lives. Millions of women are affected by breast cancer every year. Did you know black women are 40% more likely to die from breast cancer than white women? Forty Percent!! Black women are more likely to be diagnosed younger, at later stages, and with more aggressive forms of the disease. That is why, Susan G. Komen created a national campaign called “Know Your Girls” to educate and inspire black women to take charge of their breast health. Together we can make a difference and raise awareness by encouraging your girls (friends and family) to “know your girls” (their breasts)! ✨ This National Breast Cancer Awareness month visit Knowyourgirls.org/Getinformation to learn more and take charge of your breast health ✨Link in my bio #KnowYourGirls #BreastCancerAwareness #sponsored

A proud girl-mom and crafty gal, Christine shares the cutest shots of her two little girls playing, traveling, crafting and just enjoying life with their mama, and we absolutely love it. Christine actually got her start selling her crafty creations via Etsy, but now she mostly vlogs on YouTube and chronicles her motherhood adventures on Instagram. She also proudly represents her Puerto Rican background and has said how important it is for her to teach her girls about their cultural identity.

A post shared by María 🇭🇳 in 🇲🇽 (@lacooquette) on

Maria of La Cooquette is a YouTube food vlogger with a huge personality that is absolutely infectious. She speaks and writes in both English and Spanish as she puts on hilarious mini cooking shows during which she prepares everything from Italian pasta dishes and pizza to tacos and croquetas. Though Maria is a mom of two, she doesn’t share too much from her family life, but we can definitely imagine what a fun mom she must be to her two littles.

Bricia Lopez

Bricia is a chef, an entrepreneur and restaurant owner, cookbook author, and all-around badass mama who not only embraces her culture but flaunts it! We love and appreciate that a successful businesswoman isn’t afraid to show the world that she’s also a mother who prioritizes her children and family life. Talk about #goals. She’s just so impressive, but also totally approachable and someone that we would love to grab a drink with and just chat for hours.

Ana Flores

Ana Flores is a powerhouse. She’s a businesswoman and the founder of the We All Grow Latina, an organization that empowers and supports Latina entrepreneurs from all walks of life and hosts a very popular annual summit where said entrepreneurs can learn, connect, network and grow. In fact, she started her career as a blogger/influencer when she launched the now-defunct (though still accessible) blog, Spanglish Baby, where she shared her efforts to raise bilingual children with her readers. True to her roots, Ana shares lots of her experience as the founder of We All Grow Latina on Instagram, but she also shares tidbits from her life as a mom in a really true and authentic way.
