Have you Met Terricka Cromartie? Well, let me introduce “this dynamic woman”. She’s a fearless, stylish and flourishing Mompreneur of 6. She’s the wife of ex-NFL PLAYER Antonio Cromartie, who’s the love of her life. You’ve probably seen her and the rest of the family on their TV show or YouTube channel. You may have even seen her looking fashionable on her IG @iluvterricka.
Terricka took some time to give us the inside scoop on mom life, her favorite fashions, and even advice to a mother who has children and still wants to execute her dreams and goals. But before we jump into the goodies, I had to ask this mommy of 6 a few questions. If we were to look into her purse, what are 3 things we would find? And being that she’s a true eyelash guru, she didn’t hesitate to say her Dior Mascara, which relates to a lot of ladies, lol.She even stated we might find some apple sauce, fruit snacks or wipes because of the little ones.
What does self-care look like?
Without hesitation, she stated,“ making time for appointments to do things like getting my lashes done”, because I love getting my lashes, my hair and nails done. I also love having brunch with the ladies, shopping and date night with the hubby.
And more importantly not comprising, and being ok with saying mommy needs this time for herself.”
I can’t lie, I’m glad she spoke on comprising. We all know as mommies, we are willing to give all our time to our children, husbands, and boyfriends.
Often draining ourselves and forgetting who we are.
Moving on, I wanted to know who Terricka was as the Mompreneur we see on camera and off.
We live in a world where mothers are not only conquering the title of motherhood, but they’re still working hard and crushing personal goals. So it was only right, that I ask Who is Terricka? The Mompreneur?
Terricka: I’m a woman that wears many hats. I’m a mom first,so that means I’m doing hair, preparing dinner and homeschooling. I’m a wife that supports my husband and his career. Where I manageit 100%.
What advice do you have for moms that are entering into blended families?
Terricka: Building a relationship with the child(ren) is very important. I think the best way to do this is by figuring out the love language of the child(ren) and investing in what they enjoy and interested in. I would also say staying in prayer is very important.
At what point did you say to yourself. I want 6 children?
Terricka: Growing up around a big family, I was always surrounded by so much fun and love. I just knew I wanted to experience that on my own with my children.
You’re very fashionable, how do you create and stay in your “own fashion lane”? What are some of your fashion faves?
Terricka: I love to mix high & low-end brands. Because I’m a mommy, I love a good pair of denim jeans and sneakers. One of my favorite high ends is my Chanel bag, and I love me some sequins.
What advice would you give other moms that want to dive into their Mompreneur endeavors?
Terricka: Go for it!! Always remember you’re more than a mother, and it’s okay to do things that make you happy! More importantly, don’t give up!
What’s next for the Cromarties?
Terricka: We’re working on a website for our family. More videos on our YouTube channel and mommy and me tips.
I enjoyed this interview with Terricka Cromartie. It’s always a pleasure to hear from a mommy that’s caring for her family but still remembering who she is and doing things to make herself happy.
