I'm a staff writer and crowned GIF and veme maven at CafeMom.com who has contributed to nationally-recognized publications — including Mic.com, CBS Local, Essence.com, SheKnows.com, and MadameNoire.com. My work has also appeared on BlackEnterprise.com. Simply put: I make every story worth telling a page-turner. When I'm not writing — or trying to figure out the work/life balance as a work-from-home mom with 3- and 1-1/2-year-old boys — you can catch me at my MMA training center, church, or my safe place: Target.
Though I'm a 30-something millennial who hates being boxed into "all things millennial," I don’t mind professing my love for all things '90s. Stephanie Tanner was a friend in my head, I was an honorary member of the Midnight Society, and still find myself watching Beverly Hills, 90210 and Dawson's Creek.
It's my hope to carve a small space in the digital world to speak about topics and issues that should be on our minds, messages of hope all of us could use, and those random "Did she really just say that?" posts that remind us it's okay to stop and enjoy life.
With years navigating the digital space, Tanvier is a former creative director with experience whipping up content for startups and sponsored opportunities — including advertorials.

I’m constantly trying to find my voice and discover the purpose God has placed over my life. I have a passion to serve, a desire to inspire the next generation, and a hope to see liberty and justice for all — and am on the path to doing my part with the help of amazing organizations.
DESIGN & EVENTS
I spent many years as a residential decorator and interior stylist in the Baltimore/Washington DC area before starting my journey as a digital content producer. In 2008, I moved to the NYC area where I founded Casa Diseño, a boutique decorating company for the modern and everyday home. For three years, I enjoyed styling interiors and the occasional small event before shifting my company's focus to the digital space as an online lifestyle destination that provided tips for practical living. During it's run, Casa collaborated with House Beautiful, Hearst Design Group, Lowe's Home Improvement, HomeGoods, Target, Nate Berkus, and more.
Now, I spend my days "being extra" (as my husband would say ) styling the house on a whim for holidays and just because and making my kids' birthdays an event they'll forget — because they're too young to remember.
